MacX has an easy-to-use interface which provides a users friendly drag and drop option to import DVD disc, Video_TS folder, or ISO image simply. And after you free download the Mac DVD ripper and launch it, only 3 steps are needed to convert DVD to MP4. If you are on Windows 10/8/7, download the windows edition. The steps are the same.

Rip DVD to MP4

Step 1: Click "DVD Disc" icon to load the target DVD movie. Or you can also drag and drop the target DVD file for DVD movie importing.

Step 2: Choose the output format. Here take MP4 as an example, select "Mac General Video" > "MP4" from the automatically popped up window.

Step 3: Press "RUN" button to start ripping DVD to MP4. The easy guide can also be applied to convert DVD to MOV, H.264, AVI etc., or copy protected DVD to Mac, hard drive etc. provided that you choose the corresponding output format.

#4 How Fast Does MacX DVD Ripper Pro Run?

It claims it runs fast on ripping and copying DVDs. But how fast? The Digiarty Software has stated that you are able to rip DVD up to 36X real time converting speed. But it's still fuzzy for you, right? So here I ripped NCIS DVD for a test.

It took me 18 min to rip DVD NCIS to MP4, I set the MP4 output format video at MPEG4 codec, 720 * 480 resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio, 1200 kbps video bit rate and aac audio codec with 128 kbps audio bit rate. It runs much faster than other DVD ripping software indeed. Besides, if you are certainly asking for fast speed, you can set the MPEG codec MP4 output in lower parameters and slide to LQ, such as 320 * 240 resolution, 800 kbps video bit rate and aac codec, 32 kbps audio bit rate to compress DVD file size. In this case, you will save 2 min to convert DVD to MP4 compared with the normal setting above.

MacX DVD Ripper Pro review: speed

Then I tried to make a main title copy of NCIS, which keeps the original video and 5.1 channel, AC3/DTS audio. To my surprise, merely 9 min are cost.

Copy DVD to Mac

According to what I have learnt, it's mainly because of the hyper-threading and multi-core processing tech. Thus, you can make maximum use of CPU and get DVD ripped in minutes. Even better, you can browse the web, watch videos, listen music etc. smoothly as usual when you are ripping DVDs in background.

By the way, the computer configuration will also affect the speed of converting DVD to MP4, Mac, iPhone iPad. The higher your Mac computer is configured, the faster your DVD will be ripped/copied. I'm on my 2011 iMac of OS X 10.10 Yosemite, 2.7GHz Intel Core i5 CPU, 8GB 1333 MHz DDR3 RAM, and AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512MB GPU.

#5 What's the Quality of Digitized DVD Copies?

The output quality is absolutely another leading reason to choose one ripper. And thanks to the built-in "High Quality Engine", it ensures the output quality keeping the same as the original DVD. Of course, as I mentioned above, you can also adjust the resolution, frame rate, bit rate aspect ratio to change the output quality of the DVD.

For example, I'd like to ripped DVD NCIS to MPEG4 with high quality. So I slide to HQ when I choose MPEG codec MP4 as output format, and check the box of "High Quality Engine". Then set the parameters like this: 1920 * 1200 pixel resolution, 3150kbps video bit rate, 30fps frame rate and 320kbps audio bit rate, 48000 sample rate. Finally I got an utmost original quality MP4 video without any imperfections such as pixilation, scaling blur and color deterioration, though it took me 1 hour 3 min longer.

High Quality

As you can see, there is a counter-balance between quality and speed for this best DVD ripper for Mac. As you rip DVD to MP4, iPhone iPad Android, the higher quality you choose, the slower speed it will convert, and vice versa. However, if you feel like rip DVD with original quality reserved, you can choose to 1:1 rip DVD to ISO image. It keeps original video and 5.1 channels Dolby AC3/DTS audio.

#6 Does MacX DVD Ripper Pro Work Stably?

Stability is also a significant element when we estimate a program. It's horrible that the DVD ripper exits unexpectedly when you are in the process of ripping DVDs. Handbrake Mac did so sometimes. But fortunately, it is free from the issue. The "Safe Mode" option ensures you a stable DVD conversion. It also reads corrupted DVD and skip damaged sector automatically, and accordingly rips DVD more smoothly.
