How to Check Correct DVD Title on PC/Mac for Free?
Q: "I have embarked on the task of backing up my DVD collection. I have noticed that some of the newer movies I am attempting to rip contain 99 Title tracks all with approximately equal overall run times. I use MacTheRipper to rip the DVDs and Handbrake to encode them. My question is that any software can check the correct DVD tltle for me?"
