First of all, is there such a thing? All I want to do is be able to import film clips from DVDs into iMovie so I can make groovy youtube videos. Any suggestions for a Mac 10.4.11 user?

I use HandBrake. It's free and open, and works nicely.

You have so many choices on OS X. Here it goes, take a look at this tutorial link for your question answered step by step.

Other excellent (and easy!) software to use are:

-iRip it from The Little App Factory

-Permute from Fuel Collective

-iFlicks from Jendrick Bertram
I translated the last one in French for...French users ;)

Hope this will help you!

MacTheRipper also does a decent job of this, although the author makes it deliberately hard to get hold of. You need to join the forums at http://www.ripdifferent.com/forum to get download instructions.

Rip the DVD to an iMovie supported video format such as mov or mp4.

The question refers to OSX 10.4, the tool here requires Lion :-( –  patrix Dec 2 '11 at 16:35
    
This question specifically asks for a solution in OS X Tiger. –  gentmatt Nov 8 '12 at 8:14
