View Full Version : [ubuntu] Conversion of DVD to MP4

May 27th, 2009, 04:44 PM
I have been using Ubuntu 8.10 for about three months now and am trying to ween myself from my Windows applications. One of the things I am having problems with is converting DVDs to MP4.

I have been using Handbrake but it appears to work sporadically. It seems to work well with older DVDs so I'm thinking there is an encryption problems with the newer ones.

When I insert media, it gets read by the operating system and I choose to open Handbrake. When I attempt to select the source, the program shuts off. Like I said, this only happens with DVD's that are new. My older ones from my collection seem to copy fine.

Any ideas? Sorry if this is vague....

Download the k9copy series of apps. Works very well doing what you are trying to do.

I use the k9copy assistant which acts as a wizard yet still has lots of features.
