Times are changing. It seems like just yesterday that DVDs replaced VHS tapes that replaced Sony's informal Betamax. Who among Mac's faithful does not have a large library of DVD movies that reached the pinnacle of compulsory just as DVDs were completely passaged, being replaced by Netflix and downloads.
What can you do with all these DVD movies when Macs don't come with SuperDrive DVD players, and it's hard to find a DVD player at Best Buy (they're hidden, I swear)? What about an ancient answer to an ancient problem? Rip them to your Mac.
That's what MacTheRipper does. It rips DVD movies from the DVD to your Mac. You know, for backup and archiving; part of fair use of digital media purchased legally. MTR is professional and looks with the new coal expression that says: well, you know ̵
MTR is not just a simple DVD movie extractor. It has four extraction modes; one for standard ISO image, one for main function, one for batch title extraction and one for Rip & Rebuild for VTS level editing.
The standalone DVDProbe tool allows for deeper analysis for more challenging DVDs. Anyway, MTR batch can rip multiple DVDs and even rip multiple DVDs at the same time if you have a Mac with chained DVD players.
I've used MTR for years to archive DVDs and store them on external disks. Mincey Mac Plantation has just one Mac with SuperDrive DVD players, so I make a total effort to ensure that our entire collection of DVDs can be torn and stored.
The only reminder is the same as it always has been. Some DVDs cannot be torn.
And that's the new edition of the name. Is it MacTheRipper? Or, just MTR? Anyway, DVD ripping goes the way of the dinosaurs. Get them dragged while you can.
