Question Dvd::rip ???


ok i own several kids DVDs and i want them to last longer (keep them away from the kids) so i build a debain-sarge distro media box. i run s-vid out to my TV and can play DVDs, or movie files from the LAN or HD.

i want to use dvd::rip to copy all of my DVDs to my HD so i can still access the movies, but keep the DVDs out of kids reach.

i was successful at burning my first copy of Shrek, but it did it in chapter mode. i dont want chapters. id like to have a few VOB files say no larger then 1.5G ea.

how do i do that?

dvdrip has an option to convert your movies to mpeg4. you can condence most movies down to about a gigabyte with no loss of quality. you need to goto the transcode page.

You can use as well acidrip - http://acidrip.sourceforge.net/ - (from acid_kewpie). It's really easy and works like a charm.

sadly that requires mplayer. mplayer, kde, debian, do not play nice together. last time i attempted to get them to work, mplayer uninstalled a handful of libs for kde, then when i reinstalled kde it uninstalled mplayer completly so no mplayer for me.

i use kaffeine and like it. it just plane works with no fuss or hassle unlike mplayer.

just guessing, the error code is probably to do with the video codec you are using(that has caused errors for me in the past). try xvid or ffmpeg. You can find your errors on the logging tab.

chaning ti to xvid seems to of done the work. it is transcoding now and should be done in about 2.5hrs or so.

just install mplayer (easily) from source and you'll be fine. mplayer is superb, and will work just fine on ANY distribution

thanks, but ill pass. i finnaly have my media box up and working, and if you saw the nightmare i went though thanks to mplayer you would understand my hesitation to touch it with anything shorter then a 10ft pole.

you need to install freevo, then you will have a great media box. Freevo also lets you use xine if you do not wnat to use mplayer. I just got my freevo box running, I love it.

no you do not need a tv tuner card. I just use it so I have a nice interface on the tv. check out these screen shots
