    Tip about how to rip DVD's in linux

    A very good program for this is DVD::RIP.
    dvd::rip is a full featured DVD copy program written in Perl. It provides an easy to use but feature-rich Gtk+ GUI to control almost all aspects of the ripping and transcoding process. It uses the widely known video processing swissknife transcode and many other Open Source tools. dvd::rip itself is licensed under GPL / Perl Artistic License.
    You can find it at:

    Debian packages is availible at
    deb unstable main
    The package at marillat is called dvdrip.

    After you've installed the program and all it's dependencies you've likely going to get trouble with encoding. A message about that '' is missing. Don't worry!

    Just make a symbolic link named pointing to

    Step-by-step: (you have to have root access )
    cd /usr/lib/transcode/
    ln -s
    Just as easy as that!
    I hope that someone will find this useful

    Hey there,

    I've tried DVD :: RIP but I cant seem to figure out how to make a DVD to DVD copy.

    It seems to rip the files to <name_u_give>.vob. Do I just burn these on to a DVD? What folder structure would I have to follow for the DVD??

    I haven't checked the file sizes but I do believe they were bigger than 4.7 GB. Is there any way to have the program reduce the file sizes so that they fit??
