Best AnyDVD (HD) Alternative to Decrypt and Rip DVD on Windows/Mac

SlySoft, famous for its DRM removal software AnyDVD HD, was forced to shut down for legal reasons in February 2016. When we entered SlySoft official site (slysoft.com) and we could only see a blank page with a few simple words of closing statement "Due to recent regulatory requirements we have had to cease all activities relating to SlySoft Inc...". Since shutdown means that AnyDVD will be no longer updated for new copy protections, some users wonder if there're good alternatives to AnyDVD for decrypting and ripping discs. Of course, there are. To get the best AnyDVD HD alternative, keep reading on.

Update: After being closed for a few days, SlySoft returned and was renamed to RedFox. And it released a new version of AnyDVD, so you can continue to use AnyDVD.
