Rip Blu-ray/DVD to QuickTime MOV for playback on Mac OS X Lion

QuickTime is an extensible proprietary multimedia framework developed by Apple Inc., capable of handling various formats of digital video. However, Blu-ray (.m2ts) and DVD (.vob) are out of the range of QuickTime audio or video formats. That doesn't means you are totally banned to watch Blu-ray and DVD movies in QuickTime Player. Actually, an available Blu-ray and DVD Ripper for Mac will definitely do you a favor to remove copy protections, and rip the movies to a Mac QuickTime Player compatible format. Here it mainly tells a step-by-step tutorial about how to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies to Mac QuickTime Player supported format.
