Mac the Ripper is a little program that allows you to copy a DVD to your computer, and at the same time it removes the copy protection. (This is called ‘ripping’ a DVD). This allows you for example to then copy it to a Macbook Air (that has no DVD drive) to watch, or you can take the extra step of converting it to a Quicktime movie so you can put it on an iPad or even into a Keynote presentation.Mac The Ripper

Mac the Ripper will copy a DVD from your DVD player to your computer and save it as a ‘VIDEO_TS’ folder. You’ll need to watch it using Apple’s DVD Player App.
If you want to convert this VIDEO_TS folder to a different format, for example so you can watch it watch on your iPad, you’ll need to convert it to a Quicktime movie. A good app for this is handbrake.
