MacX DVD Ripper Pro? On sale for $44.95, reg. $99.95.

I seem to recall somebody here using MacX DVD Ripper Pro.

Can anybody recommend a yea or nay, and why?

(The occasional negative rants about a product without explanation do no one any good.)

AppleInsider has quite a sponsored article (read: elaborate paid ad) on it, but I'm hoping for a CliffsNotes jump start here while I digest the AI article and maybe things it fails to tell the less savvy reader/user.

It's a 'limited-time' offer of $44.95 for a 'lifetime subscription'.

There is frequent mention of 'all DVDs' but no mention of Blu-ray, I guess because it's a dvd but not a DVD.

Anybody have a recommendation for a Blu-ray ripper?

I've got a lot of DVDs I'd like to rip eventually, and a few Blu-rays, but I don't know that I'll bother if software is pricey.

I've got about 700 commercial DVDs I'd like to rip.

Got no use for blank DVDs.

After "Rip It" died (which was an EXCELLENT App by the way), I found MacX DVD Ripper Pro and have been using it for several years now. It generally gets the job done BUT, I have NEVER seen their advertised speeds for ripping a DVD (they boast as little a five minutes). My experience is more like 80 ~ 150 minutes. I have NOT tried changing the format and have just been using whatever the default is. I've emailed them several times. Their "Customer Support" has ALWAYS been underwhelming in my experience.

Out of curiosity, how long would that take? I remember Ripit. It did seem fast

I was under the impression that WinX DVD was the fastest on a mac, is this the same software?

And of course, I would assume a full size DVD player would be the fastest. Wonder if I still have my firewire one hanging around. Maybe was donated.

The only Blu-ray ripper that I like on the Mac is MakeMKV. It isn't pretty but does a great job. It has been in beta for years, and can be used for free, but I bought it to support the developers.

And other thank you. I've been trying to rip some movies to my iPhone for a while and no software I've tried to date will open newer (protected) DVDs.

Wow! I just jumped through the current hoops to move the ripped and handbraked files to my phone. What a clusterf**k.

RipIT died? What happened? When? I still use mine on occasion.

No idea, I guess it just didn't make enough money so support updating the app.

RipIt was sold through [thelittleappfactory.com] but that just gets an empty page that doesn't load.

I suppose if I waited long enough I'd get some kind of notice, but I didn't bother.

A search show c|net and macupdate having it on their site, but I didn't bother clicking.

RipIt was a great little app, and I still have it on my drive.

It's 64-bit and opens in Sierra, but I haven't used it in years, and only thought about it with the mention in this thread.
