5.2.0.0
15 December 2018

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.

MacTheRipper claims to be 'free' but to get the full and best mactheripper 3.0 you need to donate. So shouldn't 2.6.6 be called a demo? Additionally, the latest donationware version on the 3.0 version 'phones home' every time you use it. So it is very possible that personal information of yours *may* be broadcast across the internet, which could also identify you as an MacTheRipper user. Doesn't it seem ironic that the developer of an app used to help circumvent movie protections is implementing an anti-piracy scheme for his own-software? Where did this project go wrong? What ever happened to open source being open source? (MTR is dependent upon the open-sourced GPL libdvdread and libdvdcss libraries.) Great software core, terrible chains tied to it and bad exploitation of open source resources.

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

Mac The Ripper is a great application and is constantly supported by it's creators and support team. Any question, no matter how inane, is responded to in an informative and, sometimes, very amusing way. I highly recommend this for the tech savvy and, like me, the tech neophytes. The best bar none.
