copy dvd9

Post by beckwith »

Hello,
k9copy does not work! it copies the title track only.
dvd95 says something like decode complete, and then offers no option to burn a disk
nor does leave an iso image anywhere.

any suggestions?

K9Copy is no longer maintained: from the website: THIS PROJECT IS NO LONGER BEEING DEVELOPED!. The latest release is of october 2014. So forget this program.

What exactly do you wanna do? Just copying a dvd? Try Xfburn or K3b.

What I'm trying to do is copy an encrypted dual layer dvd, preferably shrink it to
single layer. 1) last time I tried any dvd programs (k3b, brasero, etc) they all barfed
at dual layer disks, 2) I've not heard of xfburn before, I'll give it a look.

EDIT
xfburn:

Hi "beckwith",

What about trying "MakeMKV", and or "Handbrake"?

MakeMKV
https://www.ebower.com/wiki/MakeMKV#mkv-rename

To install "MakeMKV" using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:heyarje/makemkv-beta
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install makemkv-bin makemkv-oss


Hope this helps ...

MakeMKV does not burn disks, as I said most dvd burners seem to barf on > 4.7G
sourrces. Handbreak - - well I'd like to preserve the menu and indexing, and this app
does not do that (it will however break the encryption).
I realise k9copy is "discontinued" but it used to do exactly what I am now attempting,
and with no if's or but's.

Hi "beckwith",

1.) Okay, although the great "makeMKV" program will not burn DVD/Blu-ray discs, it will allow you to create video files from them, "rip" the disc, so that you can backup your movies, or to "digitize" them for your home media server, or to put onto various devices like smart phones, and other portable video devices, game consoles, etc... Then, you can use other programs, like "K3b", or "xfburn", or "Bombono (awesome & simple)", or "DeVeDe" (also great), "Kdenlive" (and other video editors), or other DVD burner programs to re-create a DVD or Blu-ray disc from the video files.

2.) There are two versions of "K9Copy", the older original version (see "mc3man" PPA), and the newer maintained version "K9Copy -reloaded". I could not get the newer version to work on my older outdated computer hardware, but maybe it will work on yours. If you want to use this, I would remove the original "K9copy" and any related PPA, completely, before installing "K9copy reloaded".

http://tomtomtom.org/k9copy-reloaded/en.html

3.) Supposedly, creating an ".iso" file of the disc should also work, using any of the programs that can do this, like "K3b" (select "Copy Disc" and options to create only disc file), or "Xfburn", etc..., or the command line program options, like "dd", etc... Obviously, the reverse is also true, If you can create a successful ".iso" file from a disc, then you can re-create another disc using that ".iso" file ("burn" a new disk).

I can tell you from some experience, that some multi-media players can easily play ".iso" video files and their menus, like the incredible "VLC", and "Kaffeine" (love this one too). "MPV" can play the contents, but menus did not work. I have not tried ".iso" video files with "SMplayer" (love this), "gxine", "xine", Totem, "gmerlin", and others ...


Hope this helps ...

Re: copy dvd9

Post by beckwith »

I downloaded k9copy-reloaded (3.0.3-1~deb8u2_amd64) but it won't
install because of these dependency errors (Mint 17.3)
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of k9copy:
k9copy depends on libavformat56; however:
Package libavformat56 is not installed.
k9copy depends on libavutil54; however:
Package libavutil54 is not installed.
k9copy depends on libavcodec56 | libavcodec-extra-56; however:
Package libavcodec56 is not installed.
Package libavcodec-extra-56 is not installed.
k9copy depends on libswscale3; however:
Package libswscale3 is not installed.
These are not in the repo. How do I fix it?

Hi "beckwith",

Try installing "FFmpeg" from this PPA and see if this helps:
To install this using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:mc3man/trusty-media
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg

Re: copy dvd9

I did the three suggested commands, then a force install
apt-get -f install ffmpeg
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
ffmpeg : Depends: libvidstab1.0 but it is not going to be installed
Depends: libx265-79 but it is not going to be installed
k9copy : Depends: libavformat56 but it is not installable
Depends: libavutil54 but it is not installable
Depends: libavcodec56 but it is not installable or
libavcodec-extra-56 but it is not installable
Depends: libswscale3 but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).
I also ran "apt-get -f install" with no packages. No change.

Hi "beckwith"]

You have a typo error, you can copy and paste the commands in blue from my post.
Wrong = not necessary
apt-get -f install ffmpeg

Good
sudo apt-get install ffmpeg


Running the commands below afterwards is now probably a good idea

sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install --yes --force-yes -f


Note: You cannot, or should not, install anything while the Mint Update Manager is updating
or you have the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM) open at the same time.

Hi "beckwith",

Okay, well it looks like you have the "ffmpeg" installed correctly which is good for a lot of things.

But, the "K9copy-reloaded" is not installing correctly. Try installing it using their PPA below.
To install this using the PPA method, open a console terminal, type in, or copy & paste, each line below one by one:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:tomtomtom/k9copy
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install k9copy


Like I said before, I could not get the "K9copy reloaded" to work in my Linux Mint. It was awhile ago, so I do not remember what the problems were. I have "K9copy" original installed and working fine. But, I have not tried it on dual-layer movie discs because I do not have any.

If this does not work, I am out of ideas and suggestions regarding this program.

You could contact the people maintaining this PPA...

Hope this helps ...

Many thanks Phd21, that worked! Minor glitch with libavcodec54 not being
installed (it was earlier, but so much messing around with various k9copies
had resulted in it being uninstalled, but it was in the repo)
Copied DVD, shrank dual layer to single layer, quality still ace, menus
preserved, subtitles copied.
Again many thanks.
There should be a "thanks" system on this forum, some others do!

Hi "beckwith",

You are welcome.

Which "K9copy" did you use for this the original or the "reloaded"?
