I recently bought a Mac computer. I already have a windows based program, so I wanted the Mac version. Then I google dvd ripping software on the internet. I did just that and I picked ByteCopy. I have been using the windows version since last year, and after getting the Mac Computer, I decided to get the Mac version for ripping Blu-ray to mkv HD. I use a Mede8er Multi-Media player to play them at home and at my holiday home. I do like watching movies again and again, especially when I have friends around. Documentaries I do watch repeatedly on my own, especially stuff about the universe, the solar system, evolution etc.
I think ByteCopy would be a great choice. I have used this program for almost a year so far for backing up my DVD collection to digital copies on my Mac. What I like most in this program is that it could save more than one language from DVD and I can freely switch audio when I am watching on the TV.
