DVD ripper?


Is there a program on the 14 sarge cds that will rip DVDs? I'd like to rip all the DVDs that I own into a digital movie. Thanks in advance.

OK, I think Debian should have most of these. You will need to install libdvdcss, vobcopy, dvdauthor, transcode, mjpegtools and dvdstyler is an option too. Most of the work is command line tho.

What do you mean by digital movie? If you elaborate more, I may be able to help you better.

And I use CentOS and Ubuntu, so I'm not sure what's included on the CDs, but you may need to use the non-free repositories since there are patent questions (espescially with transcode).

On Ubuntu, everything but transcode was in the repositories. If you can't find anything, let me know.

I just installed my dvd writer yesterday and have been playing around a bit. I found acidrip to be very easy to use. Another program is dvdrip, but it has tons of dependencies that nearly broke my system when I went to install it. For dvd creation I am thinking of using dvdauthor/ qdvdauthor. Graveman looks pretty good for burning data dvds (or K3B if you use KDE).

I want to take the movies on DVDs, and save them on digital format. As far as I know, the packages mentioned are not on the 14 CDs, perhaps because they are considered non-free, thus contradicting the Debian Social Policy? Is acidrip a large file? how about dependencies for acidrip? I could download that one file in windows(as I don't have modem support in debian). Other thoughts?

You need to enable Marillat's multimedia sources to get the packages you need. They are not in Debian proper. Add the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list:
Code:
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ unstable main
Then,
Code:
apt-get update
and you should be able to install everything you need. The problem is that DVD decryption and some codecs probably violate some patents. DVD movies are on double layer discs and cannot be copied and burned without compression onto a single layer disc. You have to compress the movie by requantizing it in the same manner that DVDShrink does on Windows. To do that in Linux, try looking at k9copy, lxdvdrip, or dvrequant on Google or Sourceforge. Acidrip and Mencoder creates divx files of movies. The divx files have the best quality/size ratio, but are not playable in most dvd players. You have to look for a player with divx playback capability. Creating divx files is great if you want to store and playback only on a computer. You can make the files have the size with no visible loss in quality. If you are willing to lose a little quality, you can make a 2 hour video fit on a single CD using divx.

I don't have a DVD burner, I would like to keep the movies in digital format. So there won't be a dvd ripper on the 14 CDs? It looks like I'll have to wait until I can get high speed internet in order to download it then. Does acidrip have any dependencies?

Acidrip doesn't have too many dependencies. The main one is mplayer (and of course the packages that mplayer depends on). You will probably want mplayer anyway, after all ... it is the best media player for linux. Acidrip used mencoder (part of mplayer) to do the ripping. You should be able to get what you need with dialup, unless your system is very minimal or outdated.

If you enable Marillat repository as described above, you can install acidrip with:
Code:
apt-get install acidrip
It will take care of dependencies for you.

well, I don't have dialup support in linux, so I was wondering if I could just install the acidrip package and be done w/ it. Ok, I'll see if I can get it at the library or something, thanks.

I hope that you can get an internet connection on your computer. One of the great things about debian is the package management system which is pretty much useless without a connection to the outside world.

You can download the *.deb file directly from: ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/...4-0.0_i386.deb and copy it to your linux computer.

You can then install it with:
Code:
dpkg -i acidrip*.deb
You will have to also manually install any dependencies (like mplayer, mencoder, w32codecs, etc.)

For Sarge that's:
(and not unstable)

The above link no longer exist, please go this link to download the .deb files
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/poo...rse/a/acidrip/

I'd like to know what are the output formats by this program? Divx? .FLV?
