In February of 2016, Slysoft made a statement in homepage: “Due to recent regulatory requirements we have had to cease all activities relating to SlySoft Inc.” But later, a reborn ‘RedFox’ rose from the ashes of SlySoft, which hit the market. No matter Slysoft AnyDVD is dead or reborn in the name of RedFox, it has none business with Mac users in that AnyDVD HD is a Windows based application. To rip, copy and convert DVD on Mac, you need AnyDVD Alternatives for Mac (macOS Sierra/El Capitan).
