Editors' review

Those with large DVD collections may want a program to back them up on their computer hard drives. If so, you'll pass on Mp4DVD for Mac, which didn't work well for us.

Available as freeware, Mp4DVD for Mac downloaded quickly and installation did not require any user interaction. It also didn't include any user instruction, and technical support did not appear to be available. Fortunately, the user interface was easy to use, albeit dated. The program asks the user to drag and drop a DVD icon into it for ripping. There are no options available for file conversion, such as audio and video output formats. The user also has no control over the resolution of the output video file. Once initiated, a menu comes up showing the progress of the ripping operation in an easy-to-read display. The DVD tested started ripping quickly, but stopped approximately halfway through with a large and indecipherable error message. The output file came out corrupted and would not open in any video player application.

While simple, Mp4DVD for Mac's lack of options and poor current functioning mean users should look elsewhere for applications to back up their DVD collection.

    "Mirror function didn't work for me."

    Version: Mp4DVD 0.0.8

    Pros

    Simple interface. Free.

    Cons

    I am familiar with (and really like) the free linux application called vobcopy, which does a great job of mirroring video_ts files. I was looking for a program to do the same on iMac. Mp4DVD would not rip some of the same DVDs that I know vobcopy handles perfectly.

    Summary

    Needs a lot more work to make it useable for mirroring. I have deleted this program from my iMac.

    "Wow cnet reviewer!!!"

    May 06, 2013   |   By Popmedic

    Version: Mp4DVD 0.0.8

    Pros

    Okay, so apparently cnet reviewers have a hard time clicking on help, when you go to the help in the main menu it takes you straight to an online help file. If the cnet reviewer was able to read, they would have realized the lack of options is BY DESIGN! The product is designed so the user gets the best lossy compression without having to learn what that means. Furthermore, as obviously stated on this site, this product is open-source freeware, that is in its ALPHA pre-release state. Also, this cnet review is obviously a review of an earlier release of the product, because the latest release does have options to output Vob or video_ts files.

    It is very irresponsible of cnet to review a pre-release product that changes drastically weekly, hence why it is pre-release. At the very least the reviewer could let the reader know that the product is pre-release updated with weekly builds.

    Cons

    Pre-release, still has bugs, but is obviously in development stages.
