DVD Ripper!

Postby Marcelo » Sun Jul 01, 2007 2:02 am

I request a DVD ripper in Mint, for example, DVD95, that's easy of usage and can convert DVD 9 to DVD 5.

there are several ways to do this, but it is not really a feature request for mint IMHO. The best way to do this would be to use xDVDshrink, available through automatix (although not, I believe, through the repos), or my new favorite, k9copy. Another option would be to run dvdshrink (the windows program) under wine, which seems like a less elegant way to do things, but, if you just gotta have your shrink, I can personally assure you that it does work. You can also use CLI tools but this is a MAJOR pain- this is one area that i really recommend you grab a mouse for.
to get k9copy, just open up synaptic and search for k9copy. to get xDVDshrink, get Automatix from http://www.getautomatix.com/apt/dists/feisty/main/binary-i386/automatix2_1.1-4.9-7.04feisty_i386.deb
and open it with gdebi, then navigate to the cd/dvd page, and check the box.
To get dvdshrink working under wine, just follow the instructions here : https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DVDShrink

K9copy requires, as the name suggests, kde components. So if you are running gnome or xfce, you should consider xdvdshrink. True, it is not in the repo, but all of its dependencies are.

you can run kde apps under gnome etc. xDVDshrink and k9copy are both fully capable of doing the job, i suggest you try them both and if you dont like one, uninstall it.
