How should I rip a DVD?


Hi gang!

Okay, so, here's a question in the newbie section of the universe, because I'm at a loss here...and I'm always on the lookout to learn something.

In this day and age, I rarely turn on the TV set anymore, let alone the DVD player to "sit down and watch the movie"...my focus point seems to be the PC more and more. So, watching a movie on the PC would be ... kinda cool.

I tried dvd:rip (yep, it seems THAT is how you spell it...) but it freezes...

Anyhow, in the Arch part of the Light...what other piece of kit could do the trick? Something to read the DVD and output an MP4 or avi, or...something...

PS : this is not a question to (in the end) spread illegal copies of movies around! Dont worry - hey, some of these are the result of years of searching...I'm not gonna give THAT away...

Hey, thanks!

Thor

well I stopped writing acidrip about 5 years ago, but I still get a lot of email about it, so you might want to give that a whirl. note that it is nothing more than a gui wrapper to mencoder, so you might well prefer to just use mencoder directly.

Also depending on the size of your storage, you might just want to rip the DVD image itself to an ISO rather than converting to AVI's. most media centers will happily read a DVD image as a DVD if you want that.

check out xbmc for an excellent media center too, although personally I recently just bought a decent win7 system to run WMC on under my TV, as it was so much simpler and "just works" (apart from the fact it actually doesn't!)

use K9copy
or there is nothing to loose with trying
Code:
$ dd if=/dev/dvd of=name_of_output_file.iso
If you want to rip an audio CD just replace the of /dev/dvd with /dev/cdrom

Good luck to you!

This method does not work on encrypted discs. You will only be able to play non-encrypted parts of the disk only.

Back on topic, I use handbrake, mencoder and k9copy.

I use ogmrip, and if you have a license or if it's permissable in your region, you can go download libdvdcss2 and use that to be able to use it with encrypted discs. I like ogmrip because it has various profiles you can install to rip videos specifically for things like PC, XBox 360, Playstation 3, iPod, etc. It uses a gtk interface so it looks best in Gnome. Also, you don't have to have the disc, you can make an ISO of your DVDs, and then use that ISO as input for OGMRip.

I prefer command line tools, so I use vobcopy to rip it and then I re-encode it with ffmpeg.

Warning: bypassing copyright protection may be illegal where you live, so check before doing it.

My 2 cents.

I used mencoder for years but the last few versions of it aren't working so well for me so I've switched to using ffmpeg.

There is a great little CLI too called lsdvd that will show you what's on the DVD.

I use mplayer to dump the .vob to HD. Something like
Code:
mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile movie.vob
Then to encode that to file, your options with ffmpeg are many. Something like
Code:
ffmpeg -i movie.vob -acodec copy -b 2500k -vf crop=:720:370:0:60 output.avi
Will get you a very good quality video file with the original ac3 audio. You can go from there, look at the man page for ffmpeg.

The mencoder equivelent would be something like
Code:
mencoder dvd://1 -oac copy -ovc lavc -lavcopts vbitrate=2500 -vf crop=720:370:0:60 -o movie.avi
Then go from there, look at the man page for mencoder.

You can get the crop setting with
Code:
mplayer dvd://1 -vf cropdetect
Watch your terminal, you'll get the setting. It crops a bit much at times. I sometimes get the crop setting manually by trying different numbers until it's what I want.

http://linux.die.net/man/1/ffmpeg
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/man/en/mplayer.1.html

You can get a particular audio stream on the DVD with the -map function of ffmpeg.
That would be -aid with mencoder.
If you want to encode subs with mencoder use -sid.

As you can see the options are many. You should have it learned in about 2 or 3 years.

I'll add my favorite. It's fast and there is no loss of quality.

Code:
mencoder dvd://<tile no> -oac copy -ovc copy -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd -o movie.mpg
