DVD rip


Anybody have links to software that can rip DVDs? Have one that I need to rip to an .avi or .mpg so I can burn it to cds (not tons of content, so the whole fitting it on one cd won't really be a problem). Lemme know, thx.

Okay, got that, got libdvdread installed, but then when installing lsdvd...

[root@cornellcollege lsdvd-0.9]# make
make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
[root@cornellcollege lsdvd-0.9]# make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/chris/install_me/rip/lsdvd-0.9'
/bin/sh ./mkinstalldirs /usr/local/bin
/usr/bin/install -c lsdvd /usr/local/bin/lsdvd
make[1]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/chris/install_me/rip/lsdvd-0.9'

No, I've been getting an error:

[chris@cornellcollege chris]$ lsdvd
lsdvd: error while loading shared libraries: libdvdread.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

But not really sure as to why.

Edit: libdvdread.so.2 isn't in /bin (just making the assumption that it probably should be)

alrighty, now that I'm not at work I've been able to poke around a little more and I figured out the problem.

I guess libdvdread's base install directory is /usr/local/lib/, while lsdvd checks for it in /usr/lib/. Could probably change the base install for it in ./configure, but I'm not sure, and just copying libdvdread.so.2 to /usr/lib/ seems to be working.

Thanks tons for the replies though.. they keep me caring.

So, when it comes to ripping and encoding... DiVX doesn't seem to like me, the video has funky lines across it and is pretty messed up. Trying it w/ other codecs. Anything I can use that will typically be installed on a windows system (making cds for peeps on windows machines for work)? :-/

Edit: Turned off cropping and it seems okay... any explaination, wonderful resident expert? (I'm going to milk you just because you're here! )
