Since I usually somehow manage to loose or scratch up at least a few dvd's every year, I'm looking at finding some good backup software. I'd like to keep away from dvd decrypter and dvd shrink (which would mean windows).
I found this one http://freshmeat.net/projects/lxdvdrip/ but it is command line drive which is a possibility but I'd prefer a gui.
You might want to look into dvd::rip.
you could try thoggen
which is like to video as ogg vorbis is to audio.....
Looks quite good.
