How come I have no problems downloading software and purchasing it when I want to buy it, but this guy makes it much harder than it should be?
Email me for information on how you can give me money and then I'll send you the secret handshake to get the secret code to find the hidden download link that lets you access the secret site so that you can decipher the gobbleygook that I have encoded the url to download the key to access the site to download the instructions on how to pay me for the software so that I can give you access to my super-secret site with the software.
oh, so MTR is only to make it possible to burn the movie to DVD?
I use Handbrake to rip mine so that I can store them on my AppleTV.
Then handbrake is what you need. MTR would be of no use to you.
As to why the hoops, I explained that above. Pirating. He's a one man operation, and that's the way he needs to do it to make any money.
GB mentioned one time that he had been gone a few days, had 1300 license request in his email, only 2 were valid. He also gave some other astronomical figures. When the way to get 3.0 originally was through a download link that made it to torrent sites, and not with the current licensing scheme where he emails the app (Edit - and you need the license file I mentioned above to activate it), he had something like 50,000 downloads in a period, with less than 100 donations.
That can't be right. I just downloaded that software. What's up with that??
And it's only $20 compared to MTR's $50 "gift".
I explained that above too.
MTR does much more than Ripit, separate title extraction for example. Removing most region restrictions. Removing languages, subtitles, and unneeded audio so compression is less. Movie only so you don't have to compress the movie to fit a standard 4.7G DVD. Now it does full disc but will eliminate the extras so you don't ned to compress so much and lose quality, but keeps the menus. Yes, I know it can be burned to dual layer too to eliminate all compression, but DL discs have just begun to come in to the reasonable priced range. Some features that were in 3.0 are not in 4.0 yet but will be soon.
I don't know where you got $50 either, there is no set amount.
What are the differenced from v3? Is it faster? Does it have a new (more reliable) ripping engine? From what I've read, the reason RipIt works so well is because it acts essentially like a DVD player …it reads the DVDs exactly like Apple's DVD player does and misses all those corrupt bits and other things that try to make DVD rippers choke. That is also why it's faster than MTR (at least v2-3)
