    Re: Ripping DVDs

    Thanks for all the replies, but unfortunately I won't be able to try all of the out, as I am quite busy at them moment. I have downloaded handbrake, but the GTK version won't install, as it gives me this error in the software center:
    Code:
    Dependency is not satisfiable: libnotify1 (>= 0.5.0)
    What am I doing wrong?

    For anything to do with burning or copying DVD's I find the KDE apps k3b and k9copy work best for me. I also get rid of the debian cdrkit junk and replace with cdrtools which seems to be much more reliable.

    How do you get k3b to rip dvd?? It never does anything on my tests.

    As said above k9copy is dead so it may be a bad idea to depend on it.

    well thanx for that makemkv

    Installed cleanly on Oneiric and works fine
    As you said quite fast but no options
    Leaves you with a large mkv
    Still would favour Handbrake i think zillions of options so you can design your file.

    The package is in the Oneiric repos and it works so who cares if the dev has quit. It's not like it requires new features. Most trouble that arises is not with the gui front ends in any case.

    in my experience too an excellent program also k9copy all the k's really no need for improvement or new features

    when something works or is designed properly to leave it alone is wisdom

    i wish people who designed distros understood this



    my favourite and to my mind the most stable and well designed of all music players XMMS has not been maintained for years and yet still the best to me


    But for dvd rip if i may summarize


    k3b k9copy handbrake makemkv dvdrip Linux rules
    no need for brilliant windows dvdshrink and dvddecrypter which always work like a dream on ubuntu under wine.....

    anyway best of luck...

    Re: Ripping DVDs

    Hello everyone,
    I did not have Internet for 1.5 weeks because I was switching ISPs, but thank you for your responses. I am using acidrip at the moment as it ripped the majority of my DVDs, but I have two questions:

    1. I have k3b installed but I'm not sure how to rip a DVD with it. Can someone please explain this to me?

    2. I have libdvdcss installed and am ripping with acid rip. However, on some DVDs, when the program loads the video source, it freezes. When I exit, lsdvd is still running in the background so I have to kill the process before it eats up all my RAM. What is the problem?

    I think it's in the repos..
    clear && echo paste url and press enter; read paste; (youtube-dl $paste) | zenity --progress --title="" --text "Downloading, please wait" --auto-close --pulsate && ans=$(zenity --file-selection); gnome-terminal -x mplayer "$ans"

    It doesn't work. The Ubuntu builds are not compiled with libdvdread so it cannot rip dvds.

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...k3b/+bug/99448

    If you want to rip dvd with k3b you have to compile yourself. I did that with the help of mc4man
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1874644&page=3

    However I think handbrake is still the best.
