    Hi Mask. It's been a while since I hobbied around with DVD and DVD-ripping, but I remembered well:

    k9copy (k9copy for KDE3, kde4-k9copy for KDE4) can do your job. It has options for output to various file formats, amongst which mp4. Tested on one DVD (Roy Orbison's Black and White Night), picked mpeg4 encoding, ended up with a perfect avi file, i.e. no loss of quality noticible.

    These days k9copy allows you to configure codecs to you need.

    ° Perfection is not gonna happen. No way.

    @microchip8: The resulting 2KB file came from dvd::rip - not from the command you gave me. As for ripping and encoding, I prefer to use a GUI, although doing the job might be more comfortable via command for some people. I will give k9copy a try, but at first glance it seems that dvd::rip is more structured and offers more options as well.

    All Id like to know which settings to provide dvd::rip with to encode those VOBs with the highest video quality possible without pushing the filesize to the unlimited. Puh... noone really knows?

    I took a look at dvd::rip and I must say that although it offers many filters (mostly those from transcode) it's a horrible app and offers virtually no encoder customizations nor supports any presets. So I think you better find something else that offers such things if you aim for the highest possible quality. As I said, get h264enc from my repo (make sure to update your mplayer *and* x264 from packman), choose CRF encoding in h264enc with a value of 19 or 20 and a preset like ehq and let it encode. It outputs by default to AVI but AVI is a bad container for H.264 video so at the end you can choose to remux to MP4, MKV (which I prefer), OGM and TS.

    if you're encoding directly from a VIDEO_TS DVD directory, you can specify that directory in h264enc and it'll encode from there

    Hi
    Have you looked at handbrake (http://handbrake.fr/), which I've been
    building from svn as an rpm for awhile now?

    more likely none want to use dvd:rip, for as microchip and others note, there are options that are preferred over that.

    Nope, I haven't looked into HB.... as a video developer myself, I'm absolutely not aware of HB...What is this handbrake you speak of?

    Duuuuhhhhh what do you think? Of course I have looked at HB and it's a good suggestion for him to try out, as is Avidemux and sx264, the latter I build in my repo. GUIs which don't offer customizations will inherently always fail when one aims for very high quality and low filesize. dvd::rip does not offer enough to configure to obtain very high quality rips

    Thanks for your suggestions, guys. How about kdenlive? Will this be able to transcode into very high quality? As I said, I need a program to RIP and ENCODE DVDs in the highest quality possible. All of that and a GUI.

    No, kdenlive does not rip.

    k9copy, which was already recommended to you, works well for me.

    i've used dvd95 to rip dvd's and the quality is in my opinion really good

    Three questions:

    1. Do you actually say that k9copy will be able to do better rips than dvd::rip?
    2. If so, how come?
    3. Will it be able to bypass copy protection too?
