I've had DVD Remaster since the promo in 2008. After getting the new version of DVD Remaster Pro in the latest promo, I emailed Metakine about gifting my original copy (version 4.x). Without hesitation they emailed the new registration info for my daughter. I replied with a thank you and asked them if they could send me the link to download the 4.x disk image. Was I surprised when I got an email back with the following: "I sent you a license for DVDRemaster 5.x Pro so she can just download the latest version from our website" How many companies would do that? A great gesture from a great company (and great software). Thank you Metakine!

Here is an update. On my Mac running High Sierra, DVDRemaster Pro v7.2 (App Store Version) and DVDRemaster v8.0.3 (Download version) appear to run just fine. But when I first run DVDRemaster v8.0.3, I always get this message "Do you want the application “h264daemon” to accept incoming network connections?". Click Allow and all will be fine or change your Firewall settings accordingly. It is a pity that the program is no longer being developed. There really is not a good alternative for Mac users who want to compress DVD's.

Can anybody help me and advice me as to how I may retrieve my Licence Key code for my DVDremaster which I purchased quite sometime ago. Unfortunately I had a lot of problems with my Mac El Capitan and since then I have lost so many folders and files including all of my Licence key codes for lots of software products which I had bought in the past. Your help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.

I'm using the latest version of Sierra, and this app still works flawlessly, I will continue to use it until it no longer works. Yes, some of the technology has been incorporated into Mac DVDRipper Pro (MDRP), but the vast array of editable compression features has not. I still use this for compressing a dual-layer DVD into a single layer.

Here's the official final word from the Metakine web site: "DVDRemaster has been acquired by DVDSuki Software and is no longer for sale. Parts of it will be integrated into Mac DVDRipper Pro." That means that DVDRemaster is no longer going to be a standalone product. That sucks. I always found DVDRemaster to be the best alternative to the recently problem plagued DVD2OneX. Oh well, life goes on.

This app is no longer listed on Metakine's site. Is it discontinued? It was the best at what it di, but just like the last person to post, there were problems with versions 7 & 8 that were never resolved. I suppose thats because they knew it was going to be abandoned. Sad, this was a very easy and flexible transcoder. I especially loved the ability to do hard or soft subtitles.

I spend a lot of time to this app. Since version 4 I used it and was happy with it until the point who I bought an Apple TV. For the latest Update from version 7 to 8 I waste my money (again). What's happen? Near the (silent) end of version 7 I was starting a conversation with the support around coding my videos with Dolby Sourround 5.1 for my Apple TV. My problem is, that if I coding a video with a dolby digital 5.1 track, it takes a lot of time on my Apple TV (3. Gen) to load and start the movie. My hope was was, that I can found a solution with metakine to let coding my videos correctly, place them in iTunes and select them from my Apple TV with a quick playback after selecting the movie. I also give them the tip, that a coding with Dolby Sourround 5.1 will work perfectly when I using the free HandBrake application, who's Open Source. The developer promised me, to look at this problem to fix it with a future update, but they don't. A few months later, they deliver version 8 and at this point I was knowing, that I never will got a fix for my "5.1" problem in version 7, so I decide to buy version 8 to. I'm still waiting for a fix of that and I'm not the only one. Also you need to know, that DVDRemaster is not able to rip DVDs who are copy protected. With version 7 they also delicver the tool "FairMount" who was for free. This tool using the source of the VLC Media Player to mount each DVD as an image to safe it on the Hard Drive of your mac. With Version 8 they announced, that metakine has sold the app to Mac DVDRipper Pro. Since them you are not longer able to download FairMount for free. So if you want to safe a DRM protected DVD, you need Mac DVDRipper Pro or RipIt, who are booth shareware to. Booth applications can convert movies to an iOS format to btw. Well... You have not so much settings as on DVDRemaster. The only good thing of this application is, that it looks nice and easy and it works good with subtitles. But you can do the most with the Open Source Application HandBrake to. This Softare came with different predefinied settings to for different devices and you are also able to edit each config and safe them for later, when you want. Only the Subtilte thing is sadly not the best on HandBrake. With this deal you didn't safe realy much money (and there where be much better deals in the past for this software). It's an to expensive application for that what you can do with it. And be warned, that you must pay for each big update 9,99 US Dollar. And don't trust the low version numbers. The next version can berelased soon... Version 4 was relased in 2008 Version 5 was relased on Feb. 2009 version 6 was relased on Dec. 2009 Version 7 was relased on Feb. 2011 Version 8 was relased on Jul. 2012 My tip: If you just want to safe a DVD on your HD and search for a simple solution to convert it for you iOS devices, spend your money to Mac DVDRipper Pro or RipIt. They also came with a quick and good solution to convert a video. If you want to have a better control on the final coding for other decives, give HandBrake a try, who's for free. The price for this application is overpriced.

I have the latest version of RipIt already. Does DVDRemaster do anything significantly different that that app? Or is it just a competitor and they basically do the same thing... rip from DVDs and transcode to various video/audio formats? Thanks!
