16 November 2019

The Mac's oldest and smartest DVD-backup app (was MacTheRipper).

Overview

MTR (was MacTheRipper)--the Mac's oldest and smartest DVD-backup app.

  • MTR - the complete toolbox, not a one-trick, point-and-click extractor. MTR is intended for making fair-use, backup copies of discs which you've purchased legally.
  • Four Extraction Modes: the ISO image, Rip&Rebuild (RnR) for VTS-level editing, Main Feature, and the specialized Batch Title Extraction. In addition, there are five error-correction modes. Edit bad cells before the rip - not afterwards - with RnR. (There's always another way to peel this grape!)
  • For challenging discs, a stand-alone application DVDProbe, for deeper analysis before (not during) extraction. Available in all Extraction modes.
  • Multiple, simultaneous extractions with chained DVD drives. Each extraction with its own Mode, settings, and save location. (This feature requires at least 2GB of the machine memory.)
  • A top-to-bottom rewrite of the entire application code for maximum efficiency.
  • User Guide Videos posted on YouTube
  • Active v5 Users' Forum for peer tech support.

MTR, since 2003.

Been using this app since 2009. I have all the other ripping apps (Mac DVDRipper Pro, RipIt, HandBrake, etc.) but I always use MTR first. It's been upgraded steadily over the years and has gotten better each time. The Developer is very responsive to answer any questions or help with technical difficulties. I know this is my first review but like others have said, I feel thus far, this is the only app worth reviewing.

I've used this app ever since I bought my first Mac Pro 13 years ago. It has consistently worked and delivered perfect backups every time. The support forum is great. And the community is an outstanding resource for learning the ins and outs of how to make perfect backups of DVDs. Worth every penny.

Used this app for years. Love it. Does what it says. Continues to improve massively every major revision. Take some effort to figure out the method to get it and install it, but even that continues to improve. Hope you all continue to support his efforts! I will. Continues to be the best app for the task out there.

How exactly do I buy MTR 5. There are instructions for purchasing and the trial downloads won't open.

Because most of the time it's not worth the effort to write a review for MacUpdate..

However for MTR.. it's totally with it.

MTR is top-notch written by one of the last independent DVD backup software writing devs on the planet.

I fully agree with tmo1138. I don't write many reviews (more than one) but MTR and its development / testing group are great.

I tried MTR years ago when it was free, and it was a nice app. I have MacDVD Ripper now, but because of my usage and needs have changed , I primarily use MakeMKV now. Mainly because I don't really back up movies like people would use MTR for. I usually just rip the movie for streaming. Plus I've moved to blu-ray now, and MakeMKV is the best tool for that.

Bonjour, ce loigiciel est-il encore aussi performant qu'avant ? Je m'en servais beaucoup auparavant mais, ayant changé de Mac, je dois à nouveau payer pour l'installer. Or, je constate que la communauté des utilisateurs est bien moins active qu'auparavant. Est-ce par désintérêt pour ce logiciel ? Peut-être trouve-t-on aujourd'hui un meilleur logiciel et gratuit ? Merci de votre attention, Sébastien

Hi, is this software still as good as before? I used a lot before but having changed Mac, I have to pay to install it again. However, I see that the user community is much less active than before. Is it by disinterest for this software? Maybe we find today a better and free software? Thank you for your attention, Sébastien
