Viewing 3D film with the stunning 3D effects on 3D TV is so exciting, have you thought of putting your backed up ISO files from Blu-ray or DVD files on your large screen 3D TV instead of going to a theater which is fairly costly? However, many 3D TV will get playback issue when loading ISO files via USB.

An ISO file, often called an ISO image is an "image" of an entire CD, DVD, or BD. The entire contents of a disc can be perfectly represented in a single ISO file which can be watched on PC using a virtual dvd drive. Currently, many 3D TV can't play ISO video format via USB, the ISO file cannot be read, so if you copy movies in ISO format to USB flash drive and play on 3D TV, the 3D TV will not find the ISO file or the player will get playback issue.

In this case, a professional ISO to 3D TV Ripper is the key to assist you to rip your ISO to 3D TV supported video formats. Here, you can try out iFastime Video Converter Ultimate.

1. 2016 Best DVD Rippers for Mac - iFastime Video Converter Ultimate for Mac

2. 2016 Best DVD Rippers for Mac - HandBrake

HandBrake is probably the most well-received free DVD ripping software for Mac, Windows, Ubuntu, etc and the first option to come to mind of people. Through many revisions from 2013, HandBrake Mac 0.10.2 now supports ripping DVD disc/ISO image/VIDEO-TS folder to MP4 and MKV formats, encoded in H.264, H.265, MPEG-4 and MPEG-2. Despite being embedded with only two output formats, it's favored by Mac and Windows users for being free. But without device presets, there would really be much trouble and you'd better be with excellent mathematical calculation skill. In a word, HandBrake Mac DVD ripper is good but not that easy-to-use. Besides, seems like this free DVD ripper is not working on Mac El Capitan, according to some users' feedbacks.

Customization options: When you're setting up to convert a file, you can choose to optimize it for the Web, for a large screen, or for the iPod 5G. You also have the ability to add chapters and subtitles to your videos, and you can select the file format you'd like for the finished video, as well.

Preview window: Once you've completed a conversion, you can preview it in a separate window to make sure it's what you had in mind. This allows you to go back and adjust your settings before you save the new file or burn it to a DVD.

Unattractive interface: The interface of this app is very plain, with many technical-looking input areas when you can add files and specify output preferences. Once you get used to using it, you'll be able to find your way around with little trouble, but initially it can be a little off-putting.

Slow conversions: Conversions through this app weren't terribly speedy, and they often took longer to complete than the clip took to run. While this doesn't need to be a huge drawback, you should know to plan for it.

3. 2016 Best DVD Ripper for Mac - MakeMKV

MakeMKV for Mac performs this task well, but its lack of features and relatively complicated interface may make it a less desirable option for average users.

The program seems to be available as freeware, but its documentation states it is a beta version that will stop functioning after 60 days. It also states that downloading the latest version will reset this time limit. Installation was more complicated than expected and required us to accept a lengthy agreement disclaiming the developer's responsibility for any illegal use. Once MakeMKV for Mac started, there did not appear to be any dedicated instructions, although support for upgrades was present. The program has a number of buttons for its different functions along a top row. For experienced users, this would not be confusing, but the less sophisticated could use additional help. The program recognized the DVD in the optical drive and loaded options, which was a welcome feature. In addition to discs, users can also work with video files. In reading the DVD, the program took a little longer than other, similar programs, but worked well. Unfortunately, there do not appear to be any options for output other than in MKV format, which is disappointing. In addition to conversion, users may also select a streaming option for the movies, but the function is not clear.

Read MakeMKV Alternative on Mac OS X 10.11 El Captian


I don't know what some are talking about in their reviews, but v.1.8.7 is on my Win7 machines, free if you reinstall every few months, no nags, and .mkv plays great on VLC Player. Rips a 6g disk in ~30mins. Output quality is superb.
Most of the time it does what it's supposed to.

Copies most everything well and quickly

Regularly updated and maintained, solid functionality.


MakeMKV for Mac's lack of features and complex interface make it a viable option only for a limited number of experienced users.

If you don't need mkvs from your DVDs then no, this isn't going to do much for you

Advertised as free, but it's actually annoy-ware. It will annoy you until you buy it. Or uninstall.

Only copies to MKV so I have to convert from MKV to MPEG-2 or other formats

Interface a little klunky; for "backup," feature, no partial extraction or re-compression for single-layer blanks.

4. 2016 Best DVD Rippers for Mac - Free DVD Ripper

Free DVD Ripper, developed by AnyMP4 Studio, is a free DVD ripper software for Mac OS X 10.6.6 and later. It mainly deals with homemade DVD discs, capable of ripping DVD to popular file format MP4, MOV, M4V, MKV, etc and enabling you to customize the output video. Being easy to use, it is a good free Mac DVD ripper software. We also found out that the best way to download this DVD ripping tool for Mac is through Mac App Sotre. Maybe you have noticed as well that this free app can't bypass DVD copy protections, while most movie DVDs nowadays are strongly encrypted. So download this free DVD ripper on Mac if the DVDs you are about to digitizing are just homemade. Otherwise, we recommend the above four.


I downloaded this software, scanned the download and it came back negative, however as soon as the installer opened my McAfee popped up an immediate message stating that a Trojan threat detected and was quarantined.
