    Ripping DVDs


    I've used mencoder successfully to re-encode several AVI files to make them compatible with a piece of hardware I have.

    I now want to try ripping some of my DVDs but I'm not having much luck.

    Attempts to mount the DVD are failing with a "No medium found" error, even though the DVD is in the drive.

    For this same reason, I can't rip directly from the DVD. So, what I did is used DVDDecrypt on the PC to extract the VOBs.

    My problem is, I can't seem to get mencoder to work with the multiple VOB files. For example, for doing the sound, I've tried the following:

    Code:
    cat *VOB | mencoder -ovc frameno -o frameno.avi -oac mp3lame -lameopts abr:br=128
    This results in a "No file given" error message.

    If I try:

    Code:
     mencoder *VOB -ovc frameno -o frameno.avi -oac mp3lame -lameopts abr:br=128
    I get a "No audio encoder (-oac) selected. Select one (see -oac help) or use -nosound"

    What am I doing wrong? Anyone have any ideas?

    Thanks.

    hmm..
    Did you ever read any DVDs from your system??
    Perhaps your libdvdcss and libdvdcss2 is to old or not installed.
    So your system cant handle encrypted DVDs.
    Otherwise: did you try the "transcode" command line frontend?
