NO.2 macOS Sierra DVD Ripper: MakeMKV for Mac
Key features: We’ve praised MakeMKV for Mac before for its ability to quickly and easily rip DVDs to high quality MKV files with a single click. The app has been in beta for a long time (years, in fact), which is just as well, since the developers promise to start charging for Blu-ray ripping once the app leaves beta. The app’s strong suits are that it’s fast, super easy, and cross-platform.
Pros: The app preserves all of the source disc’s information, including tracks, chapters, HD audio, menus, and so on. The app is completely free.
Cons: Only MKV output.
Editor’s note: I found little software will keep multiple audio and subtitle tracks when ripping BD/DVD discs. But MakeMKV and Pavtube ByteCopy must be in the list.

NO.3 macOS Sierra DVD Ripper: Handbrake for Mac
Key features: Handbrake for Mac is our favorite video encoder for a reason: it’s simple, easy to use, easy to install, and offers a wealth of tweaking options to get the best possible file as a result. If you’re daunted by them, you don’t even have to use them—the app will compensate for you and pick some settings it thinks you’ll like based on your destination device. So many of you like Handbrake that many of you use it in conjunction with another app (like VLC, which makes ripping easy)—you’ll let another app do the rip and crack the DRM on your discs, and then process the file through Handbrake for encoding.
Pros: The app is fast, can make the most of multi-core processors to speed up the process, and is completely open source. Best of all, it’s completely free.
Cons: Only outputs MP4, MKV formats. Only can rip unencrypted DVD. Handbrake isn’t updated often. Its presets are often out of date.
Editor’s note: Since it is free, I think I will choose it first if I need a DVD Ripper. After all, MP4 is enough for nearly all devices and media players.
