What is MTR

What is MTR?

MacTheRipper (MTR) is a DVD ripper (extractor) for MacOS X. It is capable of copying your DVD to your
hard drive without all the copy and region restrictions, with all quality intact. This is ideal for saving your kids‘ favorite movies from rough handling, making copies for the car, or for a trip. It can also be used to make the content accessible to programs that will convert the movie to another format, like an iPod or other media players.

With a few caveats, MacTheRipper is also useful in removing region control, allowing you to watch movies from other parts of the World. These features, combined with an easy-to-use interface make MTR an indespensible part of your media tool chest. Join our millions of users in discovering the best way to backup your DVDs on the Mac.
