Mac the Ripper shut down?

I just went to the MTR site to see if they have any news, and was greeted with this page:

http://www.releasethedogs.com/mtr/



Is this well known already, or is this a new development?

Coincidence!!! I was on their site yesterday to see if there were any advances concerning the release of the new MTR (to get round the deliberately mastered bad sector problem). Although the site was fully up and running, there were no downloads of any sort available. Hmmm. Now legal threats and stuff. Oh dear.

Mac the ripper development is being continued, only that now you can't obtain it directly from a website.

But if you know where to look, you can find Mac The Ripper's latest version.

Mac the Ripper had been attacked by macrovision many times.

It'll still be available, don't you worry. You just need to know where to look.

I wouldn't exactly call it underground...they've been rapping about MTR and its various beta incarnations for quite a while...

MTR is a great application, I just tend to use it less now as I use HandBrake more but MTR UI is far better. For those who can dual boot dont bother using a windows only app, buy a PC!

"Just boot Windows." Argh, it hurts my ears. Let's hope that good Mac application developers don't take this approach and that we users don't encourage it. Support Mac OS X apps development!

Sad. I used this app in a way that I consider within the spirit of copyrights - essentially analogously to iTunes for music, although I deleted the HD copy for space reasons after I watched it. Nice application. I'm tired of this crap with copy protection schemes levied to control people who don't want to pay for things hurting people who are trying to use things they own....

Obivously, none of you haters have used DVD Shrink...It by far the best and most fully featured (not to mention free) DVD ripping/compression application out there. So what if you have to use Windows. You are going to have to accept at some point that Apple is going to become more popular with the PC crowd. Just look at the influx of Windows based posts already on this very forum...I'm all for using the best tool for the job and DVD Shrink just happens to be that.

It's all well and good if you need to use Windows for something, but for me typing away here on my Powerbook, DVD shrink does no good. Neither does it do any good to the millions of PPC users out there. Booting into Windows isn't an option. Popularity with the 'PC crowd' has no bearing on the availability of MTR.

I offered it up as an alternative for those who do happen to have the intel macs...I never suggested it would help us (including myself) stuck in the PPC world. It was already mentioned MTR is all over the internet, so that question was already answered, right?

You're right, I apologize if that came off as a bit short-tempered. I guess I'm a new enough switcher to get my hackles raised when the "boot into Windows" card is played. Sorry about that.

Yes, but there is a BETA version of 3.0 if you're willing to make a donation. I'm waiting for 3.0 to make its full release.

I always recommend Fast DVD Copy (http://www.fastdvdcopy.com/)

It's not free but software this good deserves to be paid for! Fast DVD Copy offers one-click copying of DVDs and is painless to use. My favorite feature is the ability for Fast DVD Copy of automatically re-encode a dual-layer disc to fit on a single-layer disc, etc. You can also go into an advanced menu and selectively remove DVD extras, alternate voice tracks, etc to shrink the size of a disc.

Fast DVD Copy also removes region encoding, CSS, and Macrovision protection.

It's also a Universal binary as well.

The Beta version works OK but is still problematic for certain things (main feature extraction, for example). However, I expect it to be released shortly. Also, 2.6.6 runs fine on Intel Macs.
