DVD ripping in 100 words or less
Got a flakey DVD so I figured a good time to try this stuff out.
I'm looking for a short overview of dvd ripping and what (or more why)
codecs to select.
I've got all the tools and libraries installed and I'm trying out two
front-ends: dvd::rip, and acidrip.
I used acidrip and was able to generate a avi image in about 15 or so
minutes that plays just fine. I used the default "copy" settings for
codec and audio.
Then I tried out dvd::rip, which seems much more feature rich and
followed the instructions at:
Section 3 (pulling the vob files) went very fast, but section 4
"transcode" has been running at 99% CPU for about 7 hours now. I
selected xvid for the video codec and mp3 for the audio. I did select
the "dilyuvmmx" deinterlace filter, but no for deinterlace mode.
Can someone explain the huge difference in time? And also what codes to
select and when I might pick each? Using acidrip was fast, but I don't
have any chapter data stored, so it's not easy to skip around during
playback. I guess I'm looking for a very general overview to help limit
Oh, now dvd::rip just went on to "pass 2" with elapsed at 07:27:34, ETA
1882:23:44. I think 1,882 1/2 hours is too long to wait at 99% CPU
BTW for "clip & zoom" I selected just a little for the 1st clipping, and
zero zoom and zero 2nd clipping.
