dvd question
« on: February 23, 2008, 01:40:40 pm »

i am on the road alot and bring dvds with me to take up time but i go through alot of copes during this.  i work as a mudlogger and its not the best environment and duel layer dvds are not cheep. i tried to put the dvd right on my hard drive but its a pain cause of the files on the dvd.  is there a way to convert it in one mpeg file like if i would download it off the internet so i don't have to deal with the files.

My suggestion would be to download the Multimedia Bonus Disc for VL. There are several applications on there that do that, like DVD-Rip-O-Matic or Acidrip, etc... The website is here: http://dweeberkitty.110mb.com/

It is just an addon to Vector Linux that contains a ton of multimedia programs. You don't have to install them all but can chose individual packages if you like.

I had this question also....I like vobcopy, it uses libdvdread..put your dvd in the drive change directory to a dir to put file in, then in terminal type vobcopy -l ,use the "-l " this will copy the movie as a single .vob file you can watch in the players.

 alternatively you can use the built in mencoder to make an .avi file  although I have less success with quality being a novice user of mencoder. but the file would be smaller...something like this I think

mencoder dvd://1 -chapter 1-? -o name.avi -oac pcm -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=1000:vhq:vqmin=2:vlelim=-4:vcelim=9:lumi_mask=0.05:dark_mask=0.01:vpass=1
(you may need to do some googles)

as above- you may aquire a copy of the bonus disc for gui programs of this nature

hope that helps
