    Ripping DVDs

    I've been trying to rip DVDs, and nothing seems to work. I installed acidrip, but it can't find any DVD titles. I then tried to get Handbrake, but with all the PPAs, its more of a headache. I downloaded the RPM package for Fedora 15 (64 bit), and converted it with alien. I installed it, but it does nothing and now I don't know how to uninstall it. Can anyone help me?

    I'm on Oneiric, and can't change my account details, so it still says Natty.

    You'll be able to change your details after you hit 50 posts. The moderators placed that restriction in desperation to help cope with the enormous number of spammers.

    Try installing K3b from the repositories. I believe it will solve your problem.

    Have you actually used it? Did it work? I have tried with several dvds and it never worked at all. It may be related to this bug https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...k3b/+bug/99448 (k3b in the repo is crippled as it is not compiled with libdvdread-dev) Don't know if it is still the case.

    @Op,

    I think handbrake is actually the best of the free ones I have tried. I don't understand the aversion of ppas, most multimedia apps in the Ubuntu repos are either crippled or outdated so as a rule I install them from ppas. Get the daily build ppa if you want to give handbrake another try,

    The best dvd ripper by far however is makemkv, it is fast and uses very little cpu, but it is proprietary and you may need to renew something after 30 days (the beta version is always going to be free as in beer it says) http://www.makemkv.com/

    hi there beew before i go on a wild-goose chase are u using this one under wine or with the linux version here


    the reason i ask is because it is from 2008 so i wonder if the dependencies are still good

    Looks interesting

    dvdrip in the repos works fine on 11.10 Used to rip main titles out of both an ISO and prop disc.

    Hi, I use the Linux version. I think the original forum post was from 2008 but it got updated everytime there is a new version, the one you find there is v1.6.15, which is the latest (same as the Windows one on their main page)

    Never tried it on 11.10, but on 11.04 and 10.10 it installed without a hitch. It is amazing,it is so fast and the cpu usage so low that I can actually rip a full movie in a crappy laptop with only 1G of ram and 1.6 GH cpu without the thing shutting down with overheating,--with handbrake I have to put it on ice,-- but I don't know what will happen after 30 days though so I am still using handbrake as my main ripping software

    P.S. Unfortunately k9copy is dead, the developer quited.

    For me it is always hit and miss, there are many dvds I could rip with handbrake but with dvdrip it aborts midway with some cryptic errors or produces bad quality rip, even if it works it takes considerably longer (with handbrake ~40 mins but with dvdrip takes ~2 hours or longer) I guess mileage can be different depending on hardware and the kind of dvds, but based on my experience I wouldn't recommend it.

    I think DVD ripping can be pretty random generally I did have a bit of a weird one a while ago where every ripper I used seemed to argue with transcode and DVDrip ended up coming out on top. I do like it's audio ripping by chapter as well for concert discs - a task that seems to be made stunningly difficult by some software.

    As you say though different hardware/disc and a different app might be better suited

    Worse comes to the worse you can rip DVD from the terminal with ffmpeg

    What is it exactly you are trying to do with this rip? Do you want to burn another DVD, or convert the output to another format? The programs you use will vary depending on your intended usage. I can give you good instructions for doing a DVD copy, but it uses WINE, since the programs are all written for Windoze.
    I keep meaning to procrastinate more...
