which version of mplayer and transcode works for ripping dvds in slackware 11
 
Does anyone know the best combination of mplayer and transcode for ripping dvds in slackware11.Ive just upgraded from 10.2 where I used mplayer 0.90 and transcode 0.6.8.This version of mplayer failed to make in Slack11,but in 10.2 they installed and worked really well,using ogmrip as the "frontend".I know there are lots of versions of mplayer available some rip and encode well,while some dont.I have all other dependencies installed that I need eg xvid,lame,libdvdcss and libdvdread.Any help would be great...It would save me lots of time trying differant combinations of mplayer and transcode to see which worked if someone else has already done this.Cheers.

I'm not sure exactly what you are looking to do here. You shouldn't have to play around with different combinations, just get the latest version of both programs and run with it. That is what I have always done with MPlayer, and there has never been any issue running it on any Slackware version.

Get the latest versions ... tell me if those don't work well.

If you want to try quickly without waiting for a long compile, use this ready-made package: http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slac...rc1-i486-4.tgz - it only needs libdvdread and libdvdcss as external dependencies (which you already have installed).
Works real well for me on Slackware 11.0.

Ok.Mplayer works fine.plays dvd's and most formats.It always has.Never had a problem with mplayer....ever.Transcode installs but looks for libavcodec (ffmpeg)I have this.So after setting the paths(which you never used too have to do)Transcode installs.Next thing is ogmtools and ogmencoder.So individually mplayer and transcode work independantly of each other.So when I run ogmencoder I get error message.And no dvd rip.No more help on this please as it isnt woth the hassle.I'll rip dvds on the kids windoze machine.It goes against the grain but it works.Thanks all.

Try any of the programs on here:

dvd::rip has always worked great for me.

Rollo69 06-28-2007 08:40 PM

Need help w/ dvd::rip..... I downloaded dvdrip-0.98.6-i486-1sl.tgz from slacky.it (now slacky.eu), then used pkgtool to load the package. When I click on the icon to open it it acts like it wants to open but then fails. Then I tried opening dvdrip from terminal and this is the error that comes up:
dvdrip
Can't locate Locale/TextDomain.pm in @INC (@INC contains: lib /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/i486-linux /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl .) at /usr/bin/dvdrip-splash line 8.

BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/dvdrip line 36.

I did google and google.com/linux but didn't find anything except for nfo for suse and a .cz site which I couldn't read.

Can anyone help me with this? and should I try compiling from source??

Thanks for the help.!!

You are missing a perl module. Best place to get them is CPAN. http://search.cpan.org/src/GUIDO/lib.../TextDomain.pm

Rollo69 06-28-2007 09:08 PM

Thanks for such a quick reply Dive.

2 questions though...

1st - I copied the false module but, were do I put it? I would assume in ~/sbin and as false.

2nd - I tried installing the ImageMagick 5.2.0 from linuxpackages and the following errors occurred :

touch: cannot touch `usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/perllocal.pod': No such file or directory
install/doinst.sh: line 3: usr/lib/perl5/i386-linux/perllocal.pod: No such file or directory

Thanks for your help.!!

[edit] Well I meant the /bin directory in 1st ?? and when I tried to save that false module in the /bin directory it was already in there. I mv false false.old and saved the false module you linkd me to in the /bin directory. I made it exec. chmod +x false and chown root:bin false b/c the old false was that way.

If I did anything incorrect plz let me know and still need help w/ 2nd ?? .

Thanks

Just to add my ten pence worth dvd::rip and transcode compiles and works fine for me. The only real difficulty involves finding all the perl dependencies from cpan for dvd::rip and configuring and compiling transcode. BEWARE that the latest version of ffmpeg does not talk to well to transcode and one must apply the patch posted to http://news.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.transcode.user in order for transcode to compile correctly.

Rollo69 07-11-2007 10:31 PM

What's up Simon. Sry I've been away for the 4th. What particular dependencies w/ perl did you run into? Does it or Do they pertain to the perllocal.pod problem I mentioned above.
OOOoopppsss... I see now what you were referring to about the perl depends. WoW I had a lot of perl mods to install and I'm still installing them. Hope to write back 2morrow w/ good results.

Rollo69 07-12-2007 12:18 AM

Well hello again.. I made it through all the perl mods and got to make test in dvdrip and then these errors came up:->

Can anyone help me w/ reason for error. I looked for transcode in the directory mentioned above /usr/lib/transcode and its there as well as /usr/bin/transcode. I used transcode-1.0.2-i686-ljto package and pkgtool to load it.

Thanks for the help..!!

Rollo69 07-12-2007 11:32 PM

Also, I don't have the newest vs of ffmpeg. I used the package ffmpeg-20051126-i486-1kjz from linuxpackages and the aforementioned transcode package.

Can anyone help me..!!

Thanks for any and all help.

simonb1975uk 07-13-2007 05:41 AM

Rollo,

Did you get all the dependencies? You might be missing the libintl perl dependency.

With regard to ffmpeg it can be downloaded from the ffmpeg site, try googling for it.

Simon

Rollo69 07-13-2007 11:26 PM

Yes, to the best of my knowledge, I got all dependencies the readme file said I had to have (i.e. had yes beside them) and others that came up as prerequisites to the perl mods I compiled. I do have ffmpeg but I used a package instead of compiling from src.

As for the libintl: I show having libintl.h in /usr/include. Is that what you were refering to? I will check cpan for it if otherwise. Just let me know, thanks.! I appreciate the help simon.
