Ripping is the process of copying audio or video content to a hard disk, typically from removable media or media streams.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ripping]
+
 
+
Often, the process of ripping a DVD can be broken down into two subtasks:
+
# Data extraction -- copying the audio and/or video data to a hard disk
+
# [[Wikipedia:Transcode|Transcoding]] -- converting the extracted data into a suitable format
+
 
+
Some utilities perform both tasks, whilst others focus on one aspect or the other.
+
 
+
== dvdbackup ==
+
 
+
[[dvdbackup]] is used simply for data extraction, and does not transcode. This tool is useful for creating ''exact'' copies of encrypted DVDs in conjunction with {{Pkg|libdvdcss}} or for decrypting video for other utilities unable to read encrypted DVDs.
+
 
+
== dvd::rip ==
+
 
+
dvd::rip is a front-end to {{Pkg|transcode}}, used to extract and transcode on-the-fly.
+
 
+
The following packages should be installed:
+
* {{Pkg|dvdrip}}: GTK front-end for {{Pkg|transcode}}, which performs the ripping and encoding
+
* {{Pkg|libdv}}: Software codec for DV video
+
* {{Pkg|xvidcore}}: If you want to encode your ripped files as XviD, an open source MPEG-4 video codec (free alternative to DivX)
+
* {{AUR|divx4linux}}: If you want to encode your ripped files as DivX (available in the [[Arch User Repository|AUR]])
+
 
+
# pacman -S dvdrip libdv xvidcore
+
 
+
The dvd::rip preferences are mostly well-documented/self-explanatory. If you need help with something, see http://www.exit1.org/dvdrip/doc/gui-gui_pref.cipp.
+
 
+
Ripping a DVD is often a simple matter of selecting the preferred codec(s), selecting the desired titles, then clicking the "Rip" button.
+
 
+
== HandBrake ==
+
 
+
HandBrake is a multithreaded video transcoder, which offers both a graphical and command-line interface with many preset configurations. The package is available in [Community]: {{Pkg|handbrake}}.
+
 
+
== MEncoder ==
+
 
+
[[MEncoder]] is a free command line video decoding, encoding and filtering tool released under the GNU General Public License. It is a close sibling to MPlayer and can convert all the formats that MPlayer understands into a variety of compressed and uncompressed formats using different codecs.[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MEncoder]
+
 
+
MEncoder is included with the {{Pkg|mplayer}} package.
+
{{Gentoo|Mencoder}}
+
 
+
=== Dvd2Avi ===
+
 
+
A simple [[Bash]] script using MEncoder can be found [[Dvd2Avi|here]].
+
 
+
=== dvdcopy ===
+
 
+
{{AUR|dvdcopy}} is a more complex tool available in the AUR that backs up a DVD9 to a DVD5. Has several options for modification.
+
 
+
=== MEncoder GUIs ===
+
 
+
If you dislike the command line, or just want access to more of MEncoder's options, then there are several GUI programs available.
+
 
+
The official MPlayer homepage has a comprehensive list of available front-ends [http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/projects.html#mencoder_frontends here].
+
 
+
== Hybrid ==
+
Hybrid is a multi platform (Linux/Mac OS X/Windows) Qt based frontend for a bunch of other tools which can convert nearly every input to x264/Xvid/VP8 + ac3/ogg/mp3/aac/flac inside an mp4/m2ts/mkv/webm/mov/avi container, a Blu-ray or an AVCHD structure.
+
 
+
A package is available in the [[Arch User Repository|AUR]] -> {{AUR|hybrid-encoder}}
+

+
 
+
== Troubleshooting ==
+
 
+
=== None of the above programs is able to rip / encode a DVD to my hard disk! ===
+
 
+
Make sure the region of your DVD-reader is set correctly, otherwise you'll get loads of unexplainable CSS-related errors. Use {{AUR|regionset}} to do so.
