    rip copyrighted DVD's

    in windows i used to use slyfox's AnyDVD + DVDCopy or whatever it was called. is there an ubuntu equivalent to rip movie DVD's to my harddrive?

    i have dvd::rip but it just gave me errors when ripping, im assuming its due to protection.

    Cool Re: rip copyrighted DVD's

    If at first you don't succeed - just buy the company and tell them to make the one you want.

    Not that I rip Copy protected DVD's (Cough Cough) but,
    make sure you have libdvdcss2 installed to play DVD's

    but put the disk in the tray
    right click
    "copy disk"

    Brasero should be able to do what you want.

    Avidemux is also a good app if you want to convert a dvd to other formats.

    Re: rip copyrighted DVD's

    blah, all this software is confusing... in handbrake i have to rip 4 individual files? the first part only says 23m, there 4 files that are about 1gb, do i have to rip each one separately?

    i dont see libdvdcss2 in synaptic, but i have libdvdread4

    Re: rip copyrighted DVD's

    Can you play DVD's on your ubuntu yet?
    if not
    in a terminal:
    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras
    sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh



    that should install libdvdcss2
    It'll also install ,fonts, java, flash player and various codecs for playing many different music and video formats
    it also gets round the copy protection.
    Then just right click and copy disk(to take an .iso)

    remember its only legal in europe (not in the USA)to have one backup of anything you own.
    if you don't own it, you shouldn't be copying it.

    Talking Re: rip copyrighted DVD's

    i think he just wants the .iso

    k9copy is a good app,
    but Brasero does the job and is already installed.
    either way he'll still need libdvdcss2



    merry christmas

    Are you sure it's not the other way around? I was under the impression that it was legal to have a backup in the USA? Also, you can't really lump the legal issue into "it's only legal in Europe" because Europe has so many countries in it.

    It certainly isn't legal to have ANY copies, not even for backup purposes here in the UK (which, as I'm sure you are aware, is in Europe)

    CSS qualifies as a 'technological access protection method' under the DMCA, unless that's been overturned, so in practice you'd need to violate the DMCA to do de-CSSing in order to rip it.

    First unmount the disk while it is in the tray and then type:

    sudo readom dev= /dev/cdrom f=/*/*.iso

    (the "*" represents your personal choice of file path) in a terminal. Please make sure that you have legal permissions to copy the disc.
