    DVD ripping program???


    Any one have a idea of a good one that will work on fedora? I have wine so I could possibly use a free windows one.

    I have tried using dvd::rip but I needed tons of perl stuff that I was unable to find. Could someone point me to a site with perl RPMs or better - a big RPM with every perl module

    Thanks
    Tyler

    If you just want to rip to DivX/Xvid you could try dvd2xvid. It's simple to use and gets the job done.

    Just tried those 2 - dvd2xvid wouldnt run and dvdshrink didnt have the settings I need (change resolution, change bitrate, ect.) It seems to me that dvd::rip is the only choice...

    I got all the perl modules and installed dvd::rip but now when I launch it it shows the splash screen for about a second and then it dissappears I could use some help on this...is it missing a file or something???

    Thanks again

    Did you use yum to install it?

    No, I downloaded the tarball and compiled it.

    Thanks for helping,

    Why not use yum? it is much easier and it's the standard way to install software.

    If dvd::rip isn't available through yum, what does it say at the CLI if you run it from there?

    I am assuming CLI means command line...it says cannot open window (null)...I get that whenever I try to open something from the command line
