In windows i have a piece of software called DVD xcopy xpress. It is made by 321 studios. Basically you put your dvd movie (usually 9gb) in your computer, hit start and it copies the dvd to your HDD. When it is done reading you put in your blank dvd media (4.7gb) and it writes the original dvd to 1 recordable dvd. Is their any software for linux that is similar to this software? Or has anyone sucessfully got the xcopy xpress running on a linux box?
Originally posted by cexshun I checked the website about creating a DVD backup using tccat, but it isn't
very detailed and often says "in this case". Well, my dvd does not apply to
that case and I get errors. Could you supply more information please?
Unfortunately, tccat does not work in every case. Some MS Windows software may work in those cases. I have used a windows machine to rip directly to a samba share so that I could process the VOB's with transcode.
Thanks. I used doom9 a lot when I was on a windows box. I was big on Gordian Knot, which was basically a gui for 4 or 5 dvd encoding tools. I guess I'll just use dvd::rip, the gui for transcode, to rip the vobs with a specific angle and sound track. That way, it'll keep the size down and I can fit an entire full quality DVD onto a DVD+r. I've gotten quite good at ripping to Xvid, ffmpeg, and divx. But now that I have this DVD Burner, I want to do full backups with no lossy codec.
I was just hoping I could figure it out. I'm a developer for Evile Entity Linux and was going to create an open source "DVD Xcopy" for linux using fltk. Tonite, I think I'm going to comb the source of dvd::rip and find out how it: 1)Reads the TOC 2)Copies only 1 angle and 1 sound stream to the VOB. Then I just have to figure out the .ifo nonsense and I can burn a DVD backup.
The issue I was having with tccat was after I would rip it, I would try to play it using tccat | mplayer. It was complaining about not having vts_07_0.ifo, but I was using title 1. Then after copying this .ifo over, the VOB would play for 1 second, then switch languages.
If it comes down to it, I can always try dvd xcopy under wine.
