Ok, I'll share one too: k9copy.

Slightly different in step 1: just get it through the package manager.

Why are you promoting windows and mac non-free software on a linux forum?

Because K9Copy (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/K9Copy) runs on GNU/Linux too.

funny, the homepage of that project soesn't even offer windows/mac binaries. it does however provide the GPL'd source code free of charge plus several linux binaries if you don't want to compile them yourself.

I think Windows is better for working with these formats as there is a better selection of software available. To be honest, it doesn't matter if something is open source or Linux-based, as long as it can do the task that is required.

Linux is good at some things, but Windows is better at other things.

I was making a tool myself to convert video from one format to another. It uses ffmpeg as backend. Its called ffconverter and can be found at



http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffconverter


Unfortunately I wasn't able to setup wxwidgets with codeblocks in ubuntu and hence there is no linux version yet:(. But it works well with wine. :)
I am working on DVD ripping, progress bar implementation and addition of more presets now.

If anyone is willing to help me develop a linux version, Ill be highly thankful. By the way, changes in source code aren't required as the app uses wxwidgets. :popcorn:

Suggestions are highly welcome...:D

sorry i wasnt referring to k9copy, I was referring to the original post which seems to now be removed. I cannot even remember the name of the DVD ripping product but was blatant advertisement with a direct link to download the .exe. The website only had windows and mac ports. Patsoe responded with the suggestion of k9copy.

While I agree with using the right tool to get the job done (I myself use Visual Studio as my IDE for C++), I like to think of these forums as a good source of info regarding all software... apart from when it turns into a gnome kde debate
