KillTheRipper is a handy script that deletes the invisible folder that MacTheRipper 2.01 puts at the root of you Home folder. This invisible folder contains a list of all the DVDs you have ripped, which one could sure do without. This script is recommended to paranoids :-)

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later, MacTheRipper.

God you people are ridiculous. So you are only using MTR to back up your disks? whatever. regardless, stop moralizing. the issue is 'why does MTR make an invisible record of what you rip'? They already put the statement up re. what you do/don't do with it. It's completely dodgy to then secretly record what you burn.

First MacTheRipper was created to make copies of your movies, so you keep your orignal movies at home safe and copies in your car DVD player or your portable DVD player. It was made to backup YOUR movie collection. So you really do not need this KillTheRipper program. Shame on you if you are making illigal copies of rented movies! Thanks to those small few of you idiots products like MacTheRipper will be attacked by Macrovision and the Movie industry!

I make copies (of movies I've bought) to keep because I have an infant that destroys DVDs.

Do you work at Sony or something?

Get of your high-horse Jackass!

Come on, what have we got to hide? We're all just making backup copies of movies we already own, right? Really, MTR is the best thing out there.

This whole thing looks more like a sad stunt to try and put MacTheRipper in a bad light => "I didn't know MacTheRipper lefy a list of DVDs behind. Won't be using that again." What a joke ! Come on people ! MacTheRipper is the best thing out there to rip DVDs. Get a life.

Guys, what's the problem here? A lot of people using computers are not as familiar with computing as some of us may be. So the function of this application, basic as it may be, is still a good tool for some people who couldn't do what it does on their own accord. It doesn't even claim to do any more than it does, it's plain and simple.

Thanks to the developer

just wanted to note that the folder this cleans up is created by libdvdcss, and contains the decryption keys to all the DVDs MTR (and also VLC, if you use that for DVD playback) has processed in the past. The keys are kept to make any future processing of the same DVD faster. We run this same script (along with one to delete the MTR preferences file) every time you launch a new release of MTR for the first time. If demand is high enough, we could have MTR clear this folder each time it's used, however, since it's also shared with VLC, we'd be treading on their turf as well. If you want this functionality to become part of MTR, or don't want it to be included by default, please let us know at mtr@wormintheapple.gr

my suggestion would be to put an option in mtr to trash the file or folder-- similar to deleting cache or cookies in a browser. that way paranoid people can feel happy while others can go on their merry way.

To the Author, thank you. Not all of us are "sit at our terminal in the dark, churn out code and have no life freaks, and bitch about everybody else's code", so, yes, I appreciate your GUI simple app.

To the previous note leaver - that's all it does. For some people, it's easier using a GUI than the terminal. Considering it's free, what's the point of complaining?!

Not sure he was complaining, but the value of pointing out limitations is usually to seek improvement. The fact that it is free is irrelevant to its performance. Being free hardly justifies limited or buggy software.

You are the developer of Kill the Ripper, eh?
