I have been trying to rip the audio from a dvd to mp3, I extract it to a vob using vobcopy then if I try to extract the audio to mp3 with ffmpeg using "-vcodec libmp3lame" I get an error and I have read that the ffmpeg that is in the default repository has been compiled without mp3 encoding so even thought I have lame installed it will not use it, is there an easy way to get a copy of ffmpeg which is mp3 enabled, maybe from another repository?
If the above is not available then can I recompile it with what I already have installed as I notice there is no source for ffmpeg listed on synaptic, if so, how?
If not then should I remove the version I have installed via synaptic and download the latest and compile it myself, if I did this would I need any extra libraries to enable me to compile it?
I am wary of doing things without apt sorting out the dependencies for me, if I start manually installing things that are not compatible with my current system then it could turn into a horror show trying to sort it out! (We need a checkpoint restore system for linux).
This is not a big problem but it would be nice to know (I can extract to mp2 then convert to mp3, and there are alternatives).
Any help would be appreciated.
