Best DVD rippers


Hi:

I'm having too much difficulty getting a good DVD ripper. I will only use open source software. I've tried WinX, Handbrake and VLC. Each had inherent problems. I had used AcidRip when using Linux, but, for now, am forced to use Win7 and I haven't been able to install it. I'm 1. Searching for a GOOD open source DVD ripper. 2. Such "ripper" shall NOT leave watermark(s). One would think that would be an easy project to accomplish? So, how 'bout it...anyone using a good DVD ripper that's uncomplicated to use and does a good job? Wouldn't have this query if I was still able to use Linux!!!
THANX:

Rick

K3b
Once you try it, nothing else is good enough.

Can you not use a USB (live) distro to do your ripping?

(I found handbrake was good for what I did.)

I prefer to rip the main title to disk as a convenience, I don't use pirate copys all my dvd's are bought and paid for and I keep the ones I rip for future backups, the log for die gard for example is:
Code:
rm -r DVD
mkdir DVD
mplayer dvdnav://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile out.mpg
ffmpeg -y -i out.mpg -vcodec copy -acodec copy -map 0:#0x1e0 -map 0:#0x80 -target pal-dvd dvd_out.mpg
dvdauthor -o DVD -t -c 00:00:00.000,00:02:14.640,00:03:50.080,00:05:01.200,00:05:56.720,00:07:33.680,00:11:30.760,00:12:47.280,00:13:30.600,00:13:45.520,00:16:18.640,00:20:10.880,00:21:48.240,00:23:54.120,00:25:46.400,00:27:41.400,00:32:04.400,00:32:46.760,00:34:01.360,00:36:46.560,00:40:51.040,00:41:39.520,00:43:29.120,00:46:03.520,00:50:31.680,00:54:31.560,00:55:34.920,00:56:16.640,00:58:22.040,00:59:09.400,01:01:42.400,01:04:59.680,01:09:59.400,01:12:16.000,01:16:02.040,01:22:37.560,01:25:13.520,01:25:49.440,01:26:27.520,01:31:50.240,01:34:56.800,01:37:19.480,01:41:07.600,01:43:22.240,01:43:47.120,01:45:22.080,01:46:38.280,01:49:37.240,01:53:33.880,01:54:52.040,01:57:02.800,01:58:46.600,02:00:07.440,02:01:19.360,02:02:08.480,02:06:48.600 -f dvd_out.mpg
dvdauthor -o DVD -T
mkisofs -o /media/SkyNet/Videos/Die Hard - 1.iso DVD
rm -r DVD
rm dvd_out.mpg
rm out.mpg
This rips the main title and repacks it into an iso, with chapters.

I've just realised that it's a good thing this isn't a UK based site as DVD ripping is illegal here.

if you are just putting them on a mp3 player
use Amarok

it will be in your distros repos and likely to already be installed

DVD ripper for Win7

To ALL who've replied:

Thank you for your responses. I must reiterate...Please understand, I'm now forced to use WIN7. My laptop died awhile ago and until I'm able to get a new one, I'm forced to use WIN7. These DVD rippers must be compatible with Win7 and work well. So far, I'm at a loss to find such a program. Even tried to find "AcidRip" that was Microsoft compatible and didn't/couldn't find a source for it.

I'm not understanding your reply. Could you elaborate?

Thanx:

You can try dvdbackup, it's command-line app though. As long as the DVD is not damaged, it's always worked for me. If the DVD is encrypted, make sure you have the libdvdcss library installed. Most distro's offer these programs though software packages.

There are also GUI frontends available for dvdbackup.

what fatmac is saying, is why are you forced to use windows 7. can't you boot a linux distro designed for liveUSB use, and install whatever app you want there? (antiX and mx linux are both good choices).

This is a Linux forum so why are you asking for advice on a windows app? Wouldn't you be better off asking on a windows forum?

dd or dcfldd here.

$ dd if=/dev/sr0 of=rip.iso bs=8M

$ mpv dvd://rip.iso

There used to be a media player named ogle that was good for dvds. Not sure where it went or renamed/forked to. Otherwise xine/totem does alright on .iso images. I tend to keep the iso's since there's extra stuff there like menus for navigation and all the language tracks.
