DVD::Rip problems


I'm trying to use DVD::Rip, the perl based dvd backup program, on Fedora core 3, but when I try to rip the DVD I keep getting the following errors.
I have no idea what's going on. I have mplayer and ffmpeg installed but the program will not rip the disc.

Code:

"couldn't find device name"... i'd guess you've not got a link to /dev/dvd, and it's failing to find any DVD drive.

btw, i also write a perl based dvd ripper... http://untrepid.com/acidrip/

Superb application. All I had to do was install gtk2:erl and away it went.
It Just Works(TM), which is still a rarity for most Linux media apps. Very well done.
My only request would be for some way to base rip size(bitrate) on a percentage of the total size, i.e. compress to say 70% of original. But that would just be candy really.
Nice work. This one is well on its way to Linux media mainstream.

I get "exactly" the same error...but my symlink should be correct.. o_O

can someone help me with this?


Edit:

oh... nevermind... that was not a problem... x)

from the FAQ
Quote:
6.7 Why complains transcode about a missing VIDEO_TS.IFO file?

That's Ok. The corresponding messages are printed by libdvdread if you transcode files on harddisk (which is the default case with dvd::rip). You see something like this:

libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.

but these are only (very confusing) warning messages of libdvdread, which naturally can't find any DVD device or VIDEO_TS.IFO file if started from a directory with only VOB files in it. Just ignore these messages, and please don't report this as a bug.

I just think it might be something to do with a read problem with that file, it doesn't read it correctly and that's why it won't do the rip.

Other than that I have no idea as I'm new to DVD rips in Linux.

that about
" libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO."
was just like a dumb warning... the error that stopped the ripping was something with xvid.. I use ffmpeg instead, and it seems to work just fine :P
