    Lightbulb Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    It seems that there is a wiki for running DVD Shrink in Wine, but no wiki for the excellent Linux native replacement for DVD Shrink, K9Copy, so I decided to create one.

    The new wiki page can be found here. I will also make this the official discussion thread.

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    Hi thanks for the wiki.
    I have a problem, I tried to make a copy of a dvd but the output file is 5,1GB, (I thought K9Copy automatically reduced the size to fit 4,7GB?)
    I don't find any settings to correct this.
    Any help appreciated!

    problem resolved, found the answer in another thread.

    Apparently you have to first save the DVD as an iso to disk, then burn it afterwards, that way it stays 4,7GB.

    If you burn directly, size is bigger (no clue why though )

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    I've had 50/50 success rate using K9Copy. It seems to do fine on older dvd's, but I have had Zero success on anything new. For that, I would have to use DVDFab Decrypter for Windows. Even DVDShrink, and DVD Decrypter are choking on anything new.

    Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    I just wanted to add, you might want to try the current version of k9copy (1.0.4). I had problems backing-up several dvds with the 1.0.2-ubuntu dapper version in the repositories (such as not being able to copy with menus, freezing mid stream on certain dvds, not being able to shrink to the right size). However with version 1.0.4 installed from source so far (only about 10 dvds) I have had no problem backing up dvds using version 1.0.4, even ones that had errors with k9copy 1.0.2-ubuntu (and i am copying 8.5 Gb dvds to single 4.7 Gb w/o noticable compression loss of quality).

    The only problem is right now you have to install it from source, and have to install several dev packages to do so properly. I posted a previous post
    http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showpost...1&postcount=12
    explaining how i got installing the source to work in dapper 6.06.

    Cheers.

    When I compile from source I run into these problems. Installing the dependencies first i get most of them except the following pasted below:

    Although it could be a typo I have to ask: Did you try lidbus-1-dev or libdbu-1-dev?
    In the log you pasted you are trying to install the wrong/misspelled package.

    This application is AMAZING. I'll have to add this app to my short list of KDE applications I prefer.

    1. K3B

    2. K9copy

    Talking Re: Rip and shrink DVDs with K9Copy

    This has been something that I was looking trying to find for quite some time now. After reading the wiki and the forum, I've found this program to be perfect. I have dvdxcopy for windows, but it takes two hours to copy a dvd. With k9copy it took 30 mins flat and it was so easy. I love it!
