Simple introduction of RipIt
RipIt is a macOS DVD ripper developed by The Little App Factory, it enables users to create a playable copy of the contents of a Video DVD on their hard disk. It can successfully process discs that are encoded with the Content Scramble System, as well as advanced protection mechanisms like Sony’s ARccOS Protection and Macrovision’s RipGuard, X-protect, SecureBurn’s ProtectDisc, Anaho, Fortium Technologies’ Fortium and others.
Why need a RipIt alternative?
RipIt can be a good simple DVD Ripper software for Mac users, however, it still has many great limitations when compared with the powerful DVD Ripping software on the market. It does not have any option to remove region codes, nor does it allow the option to select certain features or chapters or extraction. In addition, it only allows you to make a full disc copy or create a iTunes compatible digital video for syncing to iPhone, iPad or iPod. What’s more, it will take around half an hour to rip a DVD disc, compressing a disc will take longer, but some fast DVD Ripping tool only need just few minutes to complete the DVD ripping process.
