LXer: Handbrake DVD Ripper On Linux

Published at LXer:

I decided earlier this week I needed to rip a DVD and looked around at the available options on Linux. Iím not overly experienced at doing this sort of thing, in the past Iíve always got the job done with applications like dvd:rip but not had a very satisfying experience. Iíd heard a while back that the popular program Handrake had now released a Linux version with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) and it seemed a good idea to try it out. I have some Mac using friends who really like it and often tell me how good it is for ripping discs. Thereís been a command line version of Handbrake on Linux for quite some time I believe but I never used it, I can handle myself pretty well in a terminal but it just didnít appeal. Handbrake is licensed under the GPL and as such is completely free and open source software, with all these facts and endorsements ringing in my ears I figured I should take it for a spin, no pun intended.
