K3B dvd ripping

Hi guys..

this is the first time i try to rip using k3b and guess what.. doesn't work.

I've installed transcode and it's dependencies and this is what the console says when i ask k3b to rip.

Layout: Attempting to add QLayout "" to QFrame "", which already has a layout
QObject::connect: Cannot connect K3b::VideoDVDTitleTranscodingJob::processedSubSize(int, int) to K3b::VideoDVDRippingJob::(null)
what do you guys think?

(using slackware 13.1 64)

K3B works without issues here on 13.1 and on -current. Are you running a full install?

Actually I almost got caught thinking the same thing. Slackware does not rip DVD's out-of-the-box. K3b requires transcode to be installed to rip DVD's

I know you want to hear of a solution to the k3b problem, but I dont have one.

I used a fantastic script called 'xvidenc', which although is a command-line based app, is really easy to use. The screenshots make it look quite difficult, but it isnt. You can get by on the defaults. But there are a lot of options to tweak audio/video quality if you want them.

K3B can rip DVDs. However, doing this violates the DMCA here in the USA. There are a few dependencies you need to load, and then adjust the configure script in the slackbuild to allow this functionality.

However, there are a few better tools, such as:
  1. k9copy
  2. dvd::rip
which allow better control of the ripping process (copy to iso, transcode, resize, etc) has slackbuild build scripts.

The command-line version of HandBrake also comes into consideration here. (There doesn't seem to be a bolt-on GUI for it for Slackware.) VLC can also be occasionally useful to handle specialized ripping problems.
