    Ripping video from DVD

    ok so, i have a dilemma. i know that when i put a dvd in, in order to copy it, i right click on the dvd icon and press copy disc and brasero takes care of it. ok, that makes an iso file but, those are soooo huge. i'm wondering what program to use to just copy the movie. also, can i do that to the iso file or, do i have to do it directly from the dvd?

    thanks.

    a little update: i've read about acidrip and handbrake and people keep saying they are slow. so, i'm not fond of trying those.

    Handbrake is DVD ripper, Ripping videos to xvid/mp4 to hardisk | K9copy is basically DVD shrniker , for copy a dvd use Brasero or K3b............

    copy the dvd to hdd like your doing at the moment first off

    sure faster then doing it form dvd in first place

    then install k9copy from repos and point k9copy to the .iso file you created when u copied the dvd to hdd

    now tell k9copy to create another .iso from the dvd .iso you have already saved to the pc in a different location

    once done burn the new .iso that will now fit a 4.7 gig dvd and your done

    easy peasy

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    well, what i want to do is make copies of videos i already have so they are more easily accessible by being on my hard drive. what i don't want are 8 gig iso files of the whole dvd. so, it seems i will give handbrake a chance.

    thank you to you both.

    Handbrake rocks. Especially if you want to use x264 for video compression.

    Go to http://handbrake.fr, download the DEB

    I always use Acid to rip my DVDs (it's available in Add/Remove or Ubuntu Software Center). Maybe I'll give handbrake a try.
