oh cool. never saw that... i found that i was beign a bit daft on my default settings, if you were to force the default width to a smaller number e.g. 480 from -1 then it will encode much faster, with better quality in some respects.

Hello, acid want to thank you for your effort it is worth more than try and forget it I just ripped my first officially bought DVD "Ice Age" and the ripped avi works like a charm,(frankly enough I don't have a stand alone DVD-player just a DVD-ROM in my computer, oh wait I do - PlayStation2 is an excellent DVD-player). I tried earlier to compile Gtk::Perl but due to me upgrading to gnome2 which needs gdk2 and gdk2 doesn't provide gdkimlib I was out of luck trying acidrip, now when I revert back to gnome 1.4 and gkd and gtk prior version 2 I was able to compile Gtk::Perl and acidrip, sure I could use mencoder by itself but it ain't fun

Hey I just rented and watched Ice Age tonight too.. good movie, so I had to get it for myself with acid's little program. Don't worry isa, I plan on buying the actual dvd..

And also to let you know acid, 0.5 is working like a charm, I'd say you can go ahead and release it. I'll get into some more details on IM tomorrow with you on it..

Also if anyone else interested or having problems with installing acidrip, I wrote a small installation Howto for acid. You can find it off his main page at http://acidrip.thirtythreeandathird.net

I went to see Ice Age when it came out in movie theaters, and it just has this grasp plus it was made with linux's help .

acid, I'm having a little problem with acidrip. In a console I can type acidrip and it will start up and work fine, but if I make it run in the background with acidrip &, when I click on Load DVD it freezes. Im running RH 8.0, ask if you want to know anymore system info.

hmm, well lsdvd was hanging first time, and i killed it. it's worked perfectly ever since... try running lsdvd from a command line.. maybe it's a problem in there now... not touched t for a while though really...

What do you mean.. it does work fine. I don't run mine from a command line opting to put it in the background.. I got me a launcher from my panel.... with a generic icon for it.. I'll see what I can't come up with for the logo..

lsdvd works from console. It's not a huge problem, I just added acidrip to my fluxbox menu and it launches fine from there so I'm happy. Thx for good software!

2 Pass Encode

Hi I was wondering if anyone has done a 2 pass encode with acid rip, and if so if I could be given an example on how this is done. I checked the mplayer docs and it was done in command line like

mencoder dvd://2 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=1 -oac copy -o movie.avi
mencoder dvd://2 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vpass=2 -oac copy -o movie.avi

and I noticed in one of the earlier posts in this thread that using the frameno codec is used in multi pass encodes, so if I was to do a 1st pass with frameno how would I go about doing a second final pass
