Rip DVDs in Linux

DVD burning

Source : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=133642

Is there a command available to install something in ubuntu that decrypts dvd's so I can back-up my dvd movies?

Install dvdbackup from the repository.

Then insert your DVD movie in the drive and type this in the terminal:

dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd -M -o dir/

This will backup the whole DVD movie with extras and menus, etc. You might want to have a Dual layer burner for this too. It will put the backup in the directory that you put in place of dir/.

example: dvdbackup -i /dev/dvd -M -o backupmovie/



After it finishes this then insert your blank DVD disc into the drive and type from terminal:

growisofs -speed 1 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvdrw -dvd-video dir/


example using the backupmovie/ directory that contained my backup would be:

growisofs -speed 1 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvdrw -dvd-video backupmovie/


The dvdbackup command will put into the backupmovie/ subdirectory the disc title of the movie. So be sure to include that at the end of the growisofs command. Such as:

growisofs -speed 1 -dvd-compat -Z /dev/dvdrw -dvd-video backupmovie/GHOST/


This works great, and I can backup my DVD movies with way even dual layer movies.
