View Full Version : [ubuntu] How to create playable video ISO

January 25th, 2009, 12:06 AM
I have ripped most of my DVDs to my hard drive in Video_TS folders. I would like to put them into an ISO format to have them in one nice container to play with VLC. If I create an ISO straight from the DVD, I have no problem playing it in Totem or VLC. When I create an ISO using ISO Master or using mkisofs the ISO will not play. VLC gives the error:

dvdread demux error: DVDRead cannot open source:

and Totem gives

Could not open location; you might not have permission to open the file.

If I mount the ISO, it will play fine. Any ideas?

Anyone have an idea - it is driving me a little crazy.

mkisofs -r -o file.iso /location_of_folder/
