I've lately won a free license for Mac X DVD Ripper Pro, but haven't tested it properly yet.

https://9to5mac.com/2018/11/26/macx-dvd-ripper-pro/

Good luck!


I was just reading about this app after following a link from a promo email I received and how many are so p'd off that they basically cribbed the name of the old software by adding and changing a few letters,
See here:
MacX DVD Ripper Pro
I just don't understand why the developer was so galactically stupid as to name this product just one letter different to a well established and respected competing app - Mac DVDRipper Pro.

One has to wonder about such a company even if they did post a rather pathetic explanation at the same site.
That's for MacX DVD Ripper Pro NOT Mac DVDRipper Pro


EDIT:
PS The Mac DVDRipper Pro is available here:

Interesting point, Patrick! I wonder if Digiarty Software has not bought up Mac DVD Ripper Pro.
https://www.videoproc.com/

Anyhow, Digiarty is hard at work promoting itself, and seems to be operating out of mainland China.

Of course mainland China holds a culturally different view on intellectual property...

On the other hand, who is really behind DVD Suki Software?

i"ll have some hacker friends look into this. The Internet is swiftly becoming a basket of snakes.
My Little Snitch is now on all the time!

Also interesting points and I don't think China even has any words or phrase for any "intellectual property" interpretation!!!

And some of the good old Mac software companies were/are just small home-based outfits or maybe with 20 or so programmers/developers with the little surplus money for luxuries like advertising or paying companies for graft type favors Etc.

Ditto.

And even if Little Snitch is probably the best AV and protection app available, I finally gave up and couldn't keep up with it and had to put it into "silent mode".

It is in "silent mode" here too.
But gives a pretty good idea which apps are calling out.
In my case: none.

I hate to define its rules too.

But one day, with slow WiFi: I caught outgoing connections mainly to Ukraine.
Thanks to the Little Snitch network monitor/ Map!

And if ever you get a chill: Malwarebytes Mac is there for you!

Good luck, Patrick!
