I need to find an application which would allow me to rip a DVD into a avi -type of fine. I was advised to look at xdvdshrink (http://dvdshrink.sourceforge.net/) which looks good, but which is not found in the gNewSense repos. Furthermore, the binarines are RPM (a
tar.gz version also exists).
Is there an equivalent somewhere in the gNewSense repos. Surely not all users of gNewSense/Ubuntu/Debian need xdvdshrink to backup their DVDs?
Also - I can use k9copy to make an iso file of a DVD (selecting titles and track, by the way, which is very good) and dvdbackup allows me to copy a DVD structure unto my hard disk which I can later re-construct with growisofs. However, is could there be a way to either take the iso of the DVD or the copied DVD structure (with files like "VIDEO_TS.BUP VTS_02_0.VOB VTS_04_1.VOB VTS_06_0.BUP VTS_08_0.IFO VIDEO_TS.IFO VTS_02_1.VOB VTS_04_2.VOB VTS_06_0.IFO VTS_08_0.VOB etc." and convert *that* (rather than an original DVD) into an mpeg/avi file?
Somebody out there is making (backup) avi files out of DVD and some of these 'somebodies' is using Debian, so what is the best trick?
Lastly - I still have not found a way to rip the audio out of a DVD. Surely that must be doable. Can anyone tell me how to do this?
