about AnyDVD Sep 2016

I have ever used AnyDVD to copy my old DVDs. Excellent. I heard that it changed name to Redfox after slysoft closed? In that period, I used some AnyDVD alternative to rip DVD.

about AnyDVD Jun 2011

After looking around a bit, I've decided on the two best FREE alternatives to AnyDVD (which is apparently as expensive as Microsoft Office... geez). MakeMKV and DVD Fab both offer Blu-ray decrypting, and the features cost no money. Try those first.

about AnyDVD Jun 2011

The cost of upgrading to the HD version sends the cumulative cost to around $100, so the price of this software is really steep. However, it seems to be one of the few methods available for ripping Blu-ray discs, so if you really want to do that, this might be your only option.

Also, it's important to note that even once you rip a Blu-ray with this, it will still probably be unplayable on most media players. You'll have to use Ripbot264 or a similar software to transcode it.
