"When i rent DVDs from a video rent store, can i rip those too or do they have some protection/copyright?"
I work at blockbuster video.... why do you think i've learnt so much about copying dvds? *ahem*

and of course you will loose quality with a smaller file, you should take that for granted...

now, what i've found is that EVERY title i have encoded using my algorithms and default settings has always been between 683 and 686mb in size... pretty damn accurate and stable i reckon.

Nice program acid, i just finished encoding a dvd yesterday nite(leon the professional) and it took about 3 1/2 hours to complete at 16fps which is awsome.
Normally on windows it would take me 2 hours to rip the vobs to hd, then a bout 5 hours to convert to divx, 1 hour to convert ac3 to mp3, 1/2 hour to rip subtitles and another 1/2 hour to put all thogether, which leaves me w/ about 9(more or less) hours for encoding a dvd on window$.
Im happy that i can do another task in Linux tht i would normally do on window$ thanx to your prog and mencoder.
I'll keep posting here if i found some problems.

thanks for the feedback. naturally my program is just a VERY thin front end, and you may want to revert to just using mencoder from a console. if you run "ps ax | grep mencoder" you can see the command that my program runs for you, that's all it does really.

yeah i never had any luck under windows, cladDVD, flasK etc.... all naty crashy experiences. and of cource...6 hour long experiences. Mencoder is such a great tool. also superb for copying asx streams, as i realised the other day. top top program.

any feedbask greatly appreciated, i've been working on it a bit since i updated it last 0.3 should be out this weekend or something like that.

Hi, Chris!

as i already said my lsdvd works perfect!
# whereis lsdvd
lsdvd: /usr/local/bin/lsdvd

the dvd-device is ok (i can watch movies, mount it.. dvd:rip does work with!).

/dev/dvd is a link to /dev/hdc (np to mount && umount it).
same prob when i press reload as usual as i want..

so long i got the impression, i like your acidrip more than dvd:rip and thats the reason i try to get it work..

10q

hmm, see i *really* need to add some more debugging information to that app huh? can i ask you to open the settings file (/home/yourname/.acidrip) and set lsdvd to the exact location. if the file doesn't already exist, just click save settings. If that doesn't work, i'm gonna be a bit lost... the only way you could end up there is either a) lsdvd does not load or b) the output from lsdvd is not read proper, and i'm sure b) is impossible...

i prefer mine too... less nonsense! thing about mencoder is that it can do soooooo much, but there's too much risk of over complicating things, keep it simple and it's so much nicer to use. a newer version will be out in a week or so i think, i'm just currently having to redo the guts of lsdvd to make it a little more versatile.

hmm, well that looks fine, i guess that it's just not being loaded somehow, you definitely did put the absolute path in there? well the new version won't fix this, unless it was something trivial i didn't realise... as I have no idea why this should happen...

Illegal? Where? I don't see anything illegal going on here! Betso et al are simply wanting to make backup copies of the DVDs that they already own... or does that ol' chesnut not work with DVD licensing regulations?

ok, i've put up my current dev versions f the two apps:

http://acidrip.thirtythreeandathird....rip-0.4.tar.gz
http://acidrip.thirtythreeandathird....dvd-0.4.tar.gz

if the problem is solved, then that'd be cool, but i don't expect it will be.
