Description:

This wizard will help you create high quality backups of DVD movies to XviD format.

It is supposed to be the opposite of the famous DVD:Rip tool: Easy to use, a minimal amount of adjustable settings and automatic detection of the optimal values of almost all adjustable settings. It should produce very high quality rips, even if you have no idea what the settings mean and just use it in the next-next-next-finish way.

The wizard supports title and language selection, AC3 stream copy or MP3 audio, single or two-pass encoding and automatic splitting at scene boundaries.

DVD Rip-O-Matic can also generate executable ripping scripts. This allows you to run it as a background process, end your KDE session and go to bed.

It has not been tested very well yet, so please tell me if it works for you.

Requirements:

* Kommander 1.0 ( Part of KDEWebDev package, version 3.3.x )

* Recent Transcode

* Recent MPlayer version with support for DVD reading, DVD decryption, LAME MP3 encoding and XviD encoding. MPlayer version 1.0rc5 and newer versions are known to work perfectly.

This release features a custom target size for the generated AVI file. This is very useful when you want to rip multiple titles and make them fit on a single CD or DVD.

Special thanks goes to Tijmen Collignon for having me borrow some of his messy NTSC disks.

Was it an NTSC or a PAL DVD? The NTSC television system is a disaster, and ripping a NTSC DVD can lead to lots of problems, if it works at all.

Hmm.. I don't know about this one.. It looks like it has a few dependencies that are not included by all Linux distro's. Correct me if I'm wrong please.

StreamDVD has only one dependency (DVDAuthor). It lacks features like DVD menu generation, but that could be added by writing a Bash script.

I try to target my software at unexperienced users who are unable to setup an application like this. More experienced users can do perfectly without a GUI, as has been illustrated by the desktop-link solution.

Experienced users who still want to have a GUI are invited to start developing Kommander applications themselves. For anyone who can write simple Bash scripts, Kommander is really easy to learn.

Yes, you are quite right, there are quite a few deps.

But hey, it's a oretty powerfull app.

I believe they have a gambas front end (Never got it working myself tho), the quality of which I have no idea.

Linux certainly needs it own nice sort of DVD Shrink, as it's all very well backing up your DVD-5's, but your collection of DVD-9's...well...

Please take a look and consider it. As far as the dep's go, well if someone really wants to use it, there going to read the INSTALL right ;-)

Kind regards

I use lxdvdrip. Once it is set up it fantastic. A GUI would be nice but for now I just create a link on my desktop, insert DVD, click link, ejects ripped DVD waits for blank, put in blank DVD hit enter and it burns.

Couldn't be easier. ;)

Hi,

do you plan to add high quality DVD copies (to DVD-R video)? This would be one of the things I'm still missing under KDE.

There are lots of command line tutorials but no GUI tools that make the process easy to handle.

Thank you!

Yes, I do. The plan is to create a GUI for 'streamdvd' in the same style as DVD Rip-O-Matic. Should be very easy to do with Kommander.

Just be patient.. :)

Which Kommander and KDE version?

Will the resulting video file using Xvid work in a DVD-player that supports DivX?

DVD Rip-O-Matic does not use exotic XviD options, so chances are that when you have a DivX certified DVD player, the XviD files produced by DVD Rip-O-Matic will work. But you never can be sure until you feed one to your player!

the Script DVDScan calls tcprobe which requires libquicktime.

just installed the libquicktime from www.linuxpackages.net and now the DVD Detect problem solved.

Please add "libquicktime" "libdvdcss" "libdvdread" as dependencies.

What exactly do you mean? tcprobe failed on your system because of missing dependencies? That sounds like a package management problem to me.

I can imagine you get a "Unable to read from DVD device at /dev/dvd" message when you don't have the right DVD reading libraries installed. Maybe I should include a hint in the error message that says you might be missing these libraries?

You most probably have multiple kommander plugins installed, and Kommander from 3.4RC1 trying to load some old plugin. Check your libkommander* files. Only one should be in you LD_LIBRARY_PATH, ld.so.conf path.

Please report this problem to the Kommander developers. It may be a problem in the new KDE 3.4 version of Kommander. I have not tested DVD Rip-O-Matic under KDE 3.4 yet.

I have slackware 10.1 and I'm getting the error::
-------------------------
Unable to read from DVD device at /dev/dvd.
Please check if /dev/dvd exists, and if you have permission to read from it.
-------------------------

Though I have transcode, mplayer 1.06a libdvdcss libdvdread etc installed. I can play dvd with kmplayer or with "mplayer dvd://1"

I have set the /dev/sr0 linked to /dev/dvd, (of course ide-scsi enabled).

and also chmod a+rwx /dev/sr0 and /dev/dvd

still DVD Rip-O-Matic can't find my DVD Drive !!!

Please help.

I can't think of anything else except that you linked the wrong /dev/ entry to /dev/dvd. Please try playing a DVD using the -dvd-device option of mplayer like this:

mplayer dvd://1 -dvd-device "/dev/your-dvd-device"

This will only work correctly when you provide the path to the correct DVD device. Use this to find out which device your DVD device is.

I get this when I try to install DVD Rip-O-Matic :

./Install.sh
cp: can't evaluate `/DVDRipOMatic.kmdr': No such file or directory
cp: can't evaluate `/DVDScan': No such file or directory
cp: can't evaluate `/banner.png': No such file or directory

What are supposed to be $1 and $2 in Install.sh ?

Thank you,

You should run 'Installer.kmdr'. This dialog calls the Install.sh script with the proper parameters.

I will include a README in the next release to explain this better.
