What is DVDRemaster?

DVDRemaster is an application which recompresses large DVDs so they can be burned on a standard DVD or converts them so they can be watched on your video iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone, Apple TV and many others. DVDRemaster accommodates both novices and experts with its simple but yet powerful interface. It can either copy an entire DVD and keep all tracks, copy only the main feature or copy only selected audio and video tracks.

Recompress with ease

Convert for video players

Watching your favorite movies and shows on the road using your video iPod, iPod Touch and iPhone or enjoying them at home on your Apple TV has never been easier.

What’s new in 5.x?

Automatically include movie information

Easily locate and classify movies in your library using titles, genres and many others. Finding the movie you are looking for is now a piece of cake.

Prepare and execute multiple conversions

Never run out of movies to watch again. Prepare several conversion tasks ahead of time and let DVDRemaster execute them without supervision.

Easily navigate between chapters

It is easier than ever to find scenes in a movie on your iPod, iPod Touch or iPhone. Thanks to the new chapter markers, you can jump from one chapter to another.

How does it work?

Recompressing a DVD

DVDRemaster can work in two modes. It can either preserve all tracks (including menus, multiangle, commentaries, other languages, etc.) or work in movie only mode where everything but the main feature is discarded, thus leaving more space for the main movie and yielding a better quality of image. Advanced users will appreciate that the Pro version lets them choose exactly which video and audio tracks to keep or to discard.

DVDRemaster comes with Fairmount which is a free companion tool that allows on-the-fly decryption of DVDs. Once Fairmount is launched, making a backup of a DVD is as simple as dragging and dropping its VIDEO_TS folder somewhere on your hard disk. The resulting copy will be decrypted as it is copied and will be ready for archival.

Converting to iPod, iPhone, Apple TV and other video players

DVDRemaster can convert a DVD to a video compatible with your video iPod, iPhone and Apple TV. No need to worry about cumbersome settings, everything is summarized for you in simple presets.

You can choose the audio track from the DVD, listen to it in the preview and choose to include subtitles.

Extracting streams

DVDRemaster also allows you to extract raw data streams from your DVD. You can reuse those streams in another application.

What are people saying about it?

Pedro Fardilha, review on MacUpdate

I believe that for an app to be complete and good in what it does it doesn’t have to need a cumbersome GUI. And so far the only one that does almost all that I need and has a nice and usable GUI is DVDRemaster.

Metakine’s costumer support is really good and they always listen to what I have to say, even if it’s just a small detail.

Review on MacUpdate

DVDRemaster is one of the only programs that I purchased that successfully meets my needs. Two thumbs up…way up!

Review on Version Tracker

I’ve been using DVDRemaster for quite some time, specifically the “Pro” version. It’s a remarkable program that does exactly what I ask of it, and it does so with an ease and versatility that make it feel so “Mac-like” I’d almost think this program was commissioned by Steve himself. I’ve tried other competitor’s software, but DVDRemaster performs better, producing a higher quality image by comparison.

Review on Version Tracker

I have been using DVDRemaster Pro for almost three years and have been very happy with it. It does exactly what I need it to do.

Review on Version Tracker

It is a great piece of software. I’ve been using it since version 1.4.1, and seen it evolve into an awesome app.

Review on Version Tracker

All I have to say about the previous feedback is that he hit it right on the nose. Everything he said was correct. This app is great, fast, and just plain works RIGHT. I’ve been using it since version 1.4.

What are the computer requirements?

DVDRemaster is an universal binary application which will work on both PPC and Intel based Macs running Mac OS X 10.4 or higher and having QuickTime 7.2 or higher

  1. Jim Says:

    I got this one the last time it was on macZOT. I use it a lot and I am pleased with the purchase. Clean interface, all the presets I need with enough power to tweak codecs. Not to mention that the included FairMount application has proven useful more than a few times. $50 is a bit steep but I recommend it at $25. Try it out, at least. Try a few settings on a music video or some short film because it takes a long time to encode and the ZOTclock is ticking.

    What Jim said.

    I’d also like to add that when I contacted the developer recently with a question, I received a quick, detailed response.

    Anyone notice quite a few console messages when using this app?
