So I've jumped through all the hoops of installing libdvdread, libdvdcss, lsdvd, and worst of all GTK-perl (which required me to install gnome-libs-1.4.2 because the newer gnome libs don't satisfy the ./configure script). And to install gnome-libs-1.4.2, I had to install imlib. Then the make process for GTK-perl chokes about a half dozen times because the GTK*.o files can't be found in the proper directories. So each time the compile fails with errors, I cd to the directory where the files are and cp them to where the Makefile expects them to be. Then I try make again, and damned if it doesn't have to re-compile each step before it finds the next error. Nothing but good times, so far. And even if the rest doesn't do a damn thing, that lsdvd thingie is pretty darn cool.

I've recompiled MPlayer-0.90, as instructed in the acidrip-howto, and at long last I'm trying to actually build acidrip. I cd to the source directory and with great pride and anticipation, I type in: 'perl Makefile.PL'

What do I see?

MEncoder was found, however it does not have MP3 support built into it.
If you DO want MP3 support you'll need to recompile mplayer with mp3 support
See INSTALL or INSTALL.html for more information

This confuses me because I certainly thought that my MPlayer had MP3 support. I mean, it'll PLAY MP3's.

So I search the INSTALL file (which is incomplete in my tarball acidrip-0.9) and the INSTALL.html file, neither of which even contains the term MP3 (or mp3).

Which brings me to my two questions for you acid_kewpie:

1) How do I compile MP3 support in to MPlayer?

2) Are you working for Bill Gates?

BTW, I'm running Slack 9, without Gnome (thank you very much)

(Ahhh, I've vented! Now I feel sooo much better. I'm in my happy place. I'm in my happy place. I'm in my happy place.)

Enjoy!

it's the encoding not playing opf MP3's that causes the troubles. what you need to do is install lame and then reinstall mplayer. then when you look at configure you'll see a line about mp3 support, hoopefully with a yes next to mp3 support. the test that acidrip will do is "mencoder -oac help" which will list the audio encoding outputs that menocder can use.

if you install lame from rpm, you'll also need lame-devel to actually compile applications to use it.

The guide for acidrip doesn't really discuss this as, as i hope you understand, it's not really acidrip's problem.

"Along with the actual requirements, there are some other recommendations you might want to consider when using acidrip. The first would be lame. Read all about it here, you'll see what its used for as I don't feel like explaining it. You can also consider downloading and installing libdvdcss but acidrip will function properly without either of these."

Hey Chris,

Thanks for the help, and for the fine program. I've installed lame and now acidrip is working just great.

Any chance that we may see a non-GTK-perl version someday, so I can rip out all this gnome-bloat :-)

Enjoy!

actually yes. i hope to add an ncurses front end too. but the next release will use gtk2 not gtk, so will have a whole different load of gnome stuff to install! acutally you should really need any gnome stuff to run it, just gtk, but some prepackaged versions of gtk will flow over into gnome from the developers chosen dependencies

Folks

I found exactly what I was looking for: command line DVD backups without having to rely on wine!

http://dvd.chevelless230.com/

All that is required (for single-density, 5GB disks) is to make sure your ripper (dvdbackup) maintains the physical (disk sector) order of the files. A command of:

dvdbackup -M -i/dev/dvd -o/backup/dvd/

should get you there. Then, just make the iso image:

mkisofs -dvd-video -o /backup/mydvdimage.iso /backup/dvd/

then burn:

dvdrecord speed=x -dao dev=a,b,c mydvdimage.iso

where x, a, b, c, are the values you need based on your hardware.

Hope this helps - it helps me greatly!

piled into one script as:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
#rip the dvd
dvdbackup -M -i/dev/dvd -o/backup/dvd/

# make the iso
mkisofs -dvd-video -o /backup/mydvdimage.iso /backup/dvd/

#eject DVD, pause for a blank disk (but no checking that its blank)
eject /dev/dvd
echo
echo "---------------------------------------"
echo "gimme some blank DVD media..."
echo " press b to burn, anything else to quit"
echo "---------------------------------------"
echo
read continue
if [ $continue = "b" ]
then
  #burn the iso
  dvdrecord speed=8 -dao dev=0,0,1 /backup/mydvdimage.iso

  # clean up (might want to make sure it all went well)
  rm -rf /backup/*
fi
echo " thanks for playing"

i started reading the initial part of this thread and then it got a little bit too long but quickly i could not see anyone talk about k9copy which will create usable dvd's for stand alone players. i prefer to use dvdrip myself and i use the ffmpeg encoder with that at a video bitrate of 700kb/s and a frame size of (roughly) 520x380 (just an indication) dvdrip has good suggestions (in red) when you click the frame size calculator. this still exceeds the resolution of a normal 4:3 tv and looks great. i choose to encode in a single pass, after encoding i quickly check to see if video and audio are in sync (they usually are). sometimes with some dvd's you need to set dual pass and deinterlacing on but this dramatically increases the time it needs to convert. usually you will find you need to do this with dvd's from eastern/asian regions, don't know why. like this i can then burn about 7 movies onto a single layer dvd disc and watch it on my el cheapo ($70 aus (Cobolt) at the warehouse) stand alone divx/mepg4/mp3/jpeg/karaoke/dvd player, and best of all completely created under Linux! on a p4 2.4 ghz i get a whopping conversion rate of 50f/s which is (for pal) half the running time.

enjoy!

how to copy a dvd movie dvd9--->dvd5

this info here describes a way to copy a dvd-movie from say dvd1 to dvd2
or
dvd9---->dvd5 copy

first you have to know if the DVD is a dual layer(DVD-9) dvd or a single layer(DVD-5).

dvd5 ~ 4.3GB
dvd9 ~ 6GB or more not sure

to check just mount the dvd as if it was a data disk

mount -t auto /dev/hdc /mnt/dvd

cd /mnt

df -h or

du -sh vob-dir/



and see if the dvd is more or less than 4.3 GB

The fisrt step here to make a dvd copy is to get the vob files out of the dvd

you can do this USING:

1)vobcopy---for ------->dvd5------]


or >----->both in the end Make a vob dir


2)k9copy----for-------->dvd9 ----]

*we use k9copy for dvd9's so it can make a dir ~4.3GB less than the original dvd9 in other words it just compresses to fit on a dvd5 format

example :

vobcopy -i /mnt/dvd -m

#/mnt/dvd is where you mounted your dvd
#it will ouput the vob dir in the current file you execute it in (might have a -o ouput option but not sure)

Make sure that the names of the vob files are in CAPITAL letters or else rename them all to CAPITALS or else

mkisofs will complain and not exept the -dvd-video option

SOS
-dvd-video
Generate DVD-Video compliant UDF file system. This is done by
sorting the order of the content of the appropriate files and by
adding padding between the files if needed. Note that the sort-
ing only works if the DVD-Video filenames include upper case
characters only.

Make sure that you are not running vobcopy in a fat 32 partition or else you won't be able to change from lowercase to uppercase fat32 does not distinct
uppercase/lowercase

ok now that you have the vob dir which is under 4.3GB you are ready to make an iso image :

mkisofs -dvd-video -o dvd.iso /path/of/your/vob/files

* if your vob dir is more than 4.3 gb presumably 6GB then you can use

k9copy to produce a vob dir smaller than 4.3 GB so it can fit on a single layer DVD

and then issue as previously stated :

mkisofs -dvd-video -o dvd.iso /path/of/your/vob/files

* make sure the vob dirs are in capitals or mkisofs will complain

now we have a READY iso image you can play it if you want to test it but we want to burn it don't we ?

so we issue :

----------------> growisofs -dvd-compat -Z /dev/hdc=dvd.iso
or
----------------->growisofs -dvd-video -Z /dev/hdc=dvd.iso

that will write the image onto your dvd so you can play it

you can also do it directly but it still uses a pipe
as

growisofs -dvd-video -udf -Z /dev/hdc dvd/ is infact

mkisofs -dvd-video -udf dvd/ | builtin_dd of=/dev/hdc obs=32k seek=0

#dvd=/path/to/your/vob/files
#/dev/hdc=yourdvd-device


OR if the vob files are still in lower case this worked :

growisofs -dvd-compat -udf -Z /dev/hdc dvd/

#/dev/hdc=your dvd player
# dvd/= path to your vob files

thats it! now you have copied a dvd movie have you not
