    Rip VCD to .avi?

    I have a VCD which I would like to put on my HDD. The mpeg rip made by VLC is really bad quality, and so I thought I'd like to convert the film to .avi.

    Anyone knows how to do that OR has another suggestion?

    You sure? It seems like the program is not exactly built for ripping. Or am I just missing how to?

    Try with programs such as:
    acidrip
    thoggen

    or this one:
    Package: vcdimager
    A VideoCD (VCD) image mastering and ripping tool

    This package contains a collection of tools to master (Super)VideoCD, either directly from compliant MPEG streams with no PlayBack Control (PBC), or out of an XML description for a full-featured (S)VCD.

    This package also contains a VideoCD ripping tool to rip mpeg streams from VideoCD images, and some debugging tools.
    Commands used:
    /usr/bin/cdxa2mpeg
    /usr/bin/vcd-info
    /usr/bin/vcdimager
    /usr/bin/vcdxbuild
    /usr/bin/vcdxgen
    /usr/bin/vcdxminfo
    /usr/bin/vcdxrip

    Hi everyone!
    Firstly you cannot rip vcd's with dvd rip softwares.

    for ubuntu 8.10 (i was tested)

    install vcdimager:
    sudo apt-get install vcdimager (or use synaptic)

    Now, you have a command line vcd ripper called "vcdxrip"

    put the vcd in your optic driver
    open the command line and run:

    $ vcdxrip --nofiles

    it just start copy vcd's AVSEQ0x.DAT to your home as AVSEQ0x.MPG

    Have a nice works!

    About 'Read only'
    I got it! I was INSIDE the folder with *.dat files in Terminal. When I returned to my home folder, the problem solved. So simple. I didn't know, that 'cd' command can block working with CD-ROM... Sorry

    The only easy way I found to do it, since vcdxrip did not work for me was I installed k3b, then tools-> rip video cd
