Am able to confirm the website seems to be gone for this. I use MacDVDRipper Pro, and MakeMKV for my media management. Both are both actively supported and can be purchased. MakeMKV is essentially free, but without a serial the beta releases expire. So a serial prevents this, and I think it's a great program, especially for ripping Blu-ray discs, so I paid to support the developer.
Does The Little App Factory have an explanation why version 1.6.9 must be downloaded manually? This plus their news page* being full of spam makes me very suspicious.
Today I was burning a backup of 2 DVDs & all it says on the DVD image in the app's window is "Upgrade to macdvdripper" instead of the title of the movie. I've had this purchased for awhile now, anyone having this problem?
Can anyone comment how well it handles subtitles? I prefer "soft" subtitles that can be turned on or off. (Some apps do "hard" subtitles, where the text is added to the image and can't be turned off while viewing.)
I have purchased this and thus am an owner and user and have been for a while. Since v1.6.8 crashes on start up and it seems the developer has not responded so after commenting to solicit a response from the developer, I am reluctantly going to give it the rating a crashing app without apparent support deserves... a zero, however, zeroes are not possible so I rated it a 0.5 until they get this fixed. I am now back to using 1.6.6 until they get this fixed.
I'll just comment for now to give the developer a chance to fix the problem before I give a rating. v1.6.8 crashes whenever I try to start it on Mac OS X 10.8.5 just as it has been doing for others here. As far as I can tell the developer has not commented on it yet. I will be staying with 1.6.6 for now.
Just tried this for the first time... the current version works great! It's the only app that could rip one of my DVDs-- Mac DVD Ripper Pro couldn't do it, Handbrake couldn't do it, but this program ripped and converted to m4v with a single button press. Sweet!
For everyone else using pre-10.9 versions of OS X and experiencing RipIt crash upon launch, this is from TLAF support: "Unfortunately there is an issue with the [1.6.8] update for users who are not currently using OS X 10.9 or higher. The [1.6.8] update [is intended for] users wanting to use RipIt on OS X 10.10, so at the moment we recommend reinstalling the previous version [1.6.6], which can be found here: https://files.thelittleappfactory.com/ripit/RipIt%201.6.6.zip "
Wow to the price. I paid $10 for this a few years ago when it was. Since then with no updates how do they charge this much. I moved to DVDFab and yesterday they released 4k ripping!! DVDFab does everything including blu-ray and my 3D blu-ray. lossless MKVs, ISO and Mp4. It's very good.
Buy Ripit with caution.
The purchased and registered v.1.6.8 works fine on 10.9.4.
• The Preferences have changed. Which may address some concerns noted by random non-owners.
• Rips as fast if not faster than previous versions.
• Will not successfully rip rental DVDs as some previous versions did.
• Could not find any titles which couldn’t be moved to Mac Mini media server. (Although there are probably some?)
So far so good.
Ok. So they're updating it to keep it running on the newest version of the OS, but NOT updating it to maintain compatibility with the latest DVD releases. Newcomers should be VERY weary of paying $25 for this.
that is what I call a miracle! an update!!!
I was sure this app was dead.
compression option still in beta :(
I am really disappointed with the new developers.
3 stars because it still works in 80-90% of all cases.
