recording dvd video


I need to record some sections of video off a DVD and can't find out how, everything google turns up is for recording streaming video online.

The DVD is 'professionally made' from a fan event, but I have permission to copy the sections I need. I only need the video, not the sound if that matters.

I have xine and mplayer both installed and they play video fine, but I can't see a way to record the parts I need as they play on the screen. Am I just missing an option in them or is there some other program I need to do this?

Thanks

semi-newbie, willing to learn,
using Fedora 11 x86_64

Maybe avidemux, handbrake, or dvdrip? I think all of those are just frontends to transcode and ffmpeg...

I mostly use dvd::rip for that. It's a front end that uses many other tools to do the job (transcode being a major one) http://exit1.org/dvdrip/doc/install.cipp#require_tools.

There are Fedora packages here which may help.

Thank you.
Looking up that program and trying to understand how this works -
would I use dvd:rip to move the whole DVD to my hard drive and then find another program to let me find and copy out the parts of the full file that I want? If so, can anyone recommend what program I need for that?

Is there any program that will just let me play the DVD and copy out the parts I want as I go? Just the clips I need would be a lot less drive space then the whole DVD.

Sorry, when I search I get back a lot of various media programs but I'm not sure what parts of the process each of them is for. I haven't done anything video before and trial and error isn't getting me very far right now.

You might want to look at the non-linear editing section here:

Note that I have not used any of these programs, but "linux non-linear editing" is what you're looking for.

Well, you can use mplayer or ffmpeg to capture portions of a DVD video. The .VOB file of the disc contents if you mount the disc is what contains the video elements. It's basically mpeg2video with some navigation extras. If you can play it in linux, you can do something with it. And there's a few gui options to. I've got lives installed on one of my boxes, but I don't do much non-linear editing. Not to imply that I always work in the sequence of the tasks to be done.

P.S. Make sure you have those permissions in writing, just in case. CYA
(not that they'll get much out of you unless you're independently wealthy or something)

You can rip individual titles to disk with dvd::rip and then on the Transcode tab you can select a frame range to transcode. To save hard disk space you can rip on the fly instead of ripping to hard disk first.

A simple DVD Copy software can help with it.

I find dvd::rip too confusing. k9copy is more straightforward. It copies dvds, it creates avi files from dvds, it allows you to select which portions of the dvd you want to work with, and it's interface is relatively easy. Another program for creating avi files from dvds is acidrip. It's okay.
