RipIt v1.4.0 MacOSX | 6.51MB
Click on Rip and RipIt converts the DVD—the entire disc, including menus and special features—to a [movie name].dvdmovie file on your hard drive. While ripping, the RipIt window displays the time remaining, the percentage complete, and some spinning-disc eye candy; the program’s Dock icon displays the same data as well as the rate of conversion. I tested RipIt on an older Mac Pro with a good number of DVDs, and while the program’s initial estimates were generally around 35 to 40 minutes, most movies took less than 30 minutes to rip. Double-clicking on the resulting .dvdmovie file launches DVD Player and plays the “DVD” just as if you’d inserted the actual disc in your optical drive—a nice touch that adds to RipIt’s ease of use.
