I have used DVDFab on PC and Macs for years for ripping DVDs. It is not a particularly attractive interface and the availability of a large number of modes can be confusing. However, it works very well, and is well supported. It handles encryptions well and manages to get through damaged disks well. It has succeeded in cases where Handbrake, eg, failed. I only own the "copy" version. If I only want an MP4 backup, I rip to a video folder and then use Handbrake to convert. HB can do this in one step, but in my experience DVDFAB is more reliable in decrypting and handling damage.

Should have complained about dropping the Preferences from the popups. That was very handy.

Thanks Aergern. It's certainly not obvious but it does work and gives access to other related utilities as well.

New information on some menus is useful. I prefer the dark theme from the 3.x version. World clocks no longer show day/night on clock icon.

This is a ripoff of the public domain software Skim. Skim is a wonderful reader. Just download it.

I have used the PC version for a long time. Fab is frequently updated and is the most reliable ripper I have used. I have been using the Mac version in preview form and now in the official release. It does seem to have trouble burning disks. I have been ripping to iso format and burning separately.
