DVD decryption software.


I recently set up a media server with the help of my brother on the software side and I was wanting to copy all my DVDs to it as .mp4 files not iso files. I use handbrake to rip my movies off the disk but without something to break the copyright protection on them I have been having very little success. I know that there is a program for Windows called ANYdvd that does just that that and almost never fails because I used to use it when I ran XP.

My main question is this: Is there an equivalent to ANYdvd on Linux to break the copyright on my movies so I can copy them to my server? Keep in mind I am not going to use this to steal anything. I legitimately own all these movies and I have bought them over a period of several years. I'm just looking to back these up and also add the ability to stream them with KODI. If anyone could help me I would really appreciate it.

I'm running Linux Mint 18.

Generally you have to install something like libdvdcss(2?) and you'd need that usually to make an iso even.

VLC almost always is able to rip a dvd to a number of formats. Think it has libdvdcss2 in it maybe.

I used one of those windows dvd copy programs running on linux under wine. Worked great. dvdfab maybe?

Kind of surprised Mint doesn't have dvd stuff by default. What's it say on the Mint web page about dvd?

Maybe give K9Copy a spin.

I think Mint comes with Brasero.

Back in the day, if you could play them, you could mount them and copy the .VOB files which are mpeg2 video with navigation stuffs. Which could be transcoded by most things like ffmpeg. Sometimes you had to rename them to .mpeg2 instead of .vob. There's decss and libdvdcss2 things to decrypt them, which would need to be in place to mount them. And potentially against the laws/rules/community standards of your location. The decss one decodes the key directly and is not liked by many institutions. The libdvdcss one takes a more brute force approach which is more accepted, but still not liked, by institutions.

I can use dd to sopy most of the DVDs I own to disk, however, some just will not and some will not play.
Where I am (in the UK) it is, as far as I last saw, illegal for me to do so.
I do find that opening in VLC before using dd seems to allow dd to work (I'm using Debian Sid) but I have no idea why it would matter.

Is VLCs website.

Is the thing needed to decrypt discs.

It matters in part because modern drives have protect modes on them. And otherwise do no cooperate until the magic incantation is used. There's also region locking and other things.

With almost any Linux media player you can play the DVD to a video file. The player has to decode the DVD in order to play it. Then, it's trivial to write the resulting mp4 to a file.
