Ripping DVDs in Linux

Postby theevilone6620 » Thu Aug 27, 2009 11:04 pm

I am wondering if someone can tell me if it is possible to rip copyprotected DVDs in Linux with any of the tools available. In windows I am used to using AnyDVD to overcome the copyprotection methods used to prevent copying DVD's. So far from my Google research I have not been able to find a solution to being able to copy or rip ANY dvd to my hard disk.

I am hopelessly lost when it comes to media in Linux. The 5 similar but different media players included in a Mint install on top of Xine and Gstreamer, back ends, front ends, command line version etc. Gnome Mplayer, Mplayer, Totem Xine, Totem Gstreamer, Xine player, etc. What is the deal???

I already posted in regards to this but this post I just wanted clarification on what a good solutino to ripping DVD's that are protected is on Linux. But while I m at it if anyone can explain the media player situation to me that would be great as well

Open a terminal and and write:

sudo /usr/share/doc/libdvdread4/install-css.sh


This let's you bypass copy-protections.

Now install Handbrake, (this rips to any format) and rip away. Or if you want to rip to .ISO files, I would suggest k9copy.

I was going to start a similar topic.

I've tried 'Handbrake' and 'k9copy' and 'acidRip' on my ASUSeeePC. I found it difficult to use any of them to rip a DVD, but I think this was related to the fact that my small screen made things difficult to negotiate. I guess this problem is a different topic though.

If you just want to rip the main movie you can use a little program called Lemonrip or if you want to make a backup copy of the entire disk use K9copy. Both work Great. Just google lemonrip and you will find it. K9copy is in the repository. Use mintstall or snaptiic package manager to install it.

I've been using 'Acidrip' and 'k3b' to rip and burn on Mint. They seem to work better on Mint than they did on Ubuntu.

I think that you can use the ever reliable "VLC media player" to rip DVD's
