    hmm, if it's not available from that site I think it's on doom9.org, give it a try and you'll never go back to doing it all manually, the rips really are excellent quality. They're easily as good if not better than any rips I managed to do manually and take a damn less time on my part to do.

    The site seems to be ok now.

    If i like the app (as soon as i've given it a go) i'll probably give it a mention in the first post (ie start of the guide). Thanks for quite possibly making my guide useless within a couple of days :wallbash: (j/k)

    If this app makes the whole process easier then it's a good thing for me (along with anyone who wants to learn to do this) i guess ;)

    I'll still leave this guide up though, as it allows you to see what's happening step by step, giving you a lot of flexibility if you want to do things differently (maybe change audio codec, include subs, or simply want to learn how this kind of thing works)

    note: the app mentioned is only a 6meg d/l so if anyone wants to give it a whirl they could post a comparison of the two methods here?

    i found that a program called 'dvdtoogm' to be quite useful. it makes to *.ogm, but also works for *.avi, ogm format is just for multiple audio/subtitles streams, but you can rename files to *.avi if just a simple movie and will work normally. It is really user friendly, not to mention it has all the required parts of the program, such as dvd2avi, virtualdub (except dvd ripper and video codec), and if u like, you can encode the video to a bigger size, e.g. 1.4GB and burn it as 2 parts onto normal cd's...
    or if you want, you can set the quality of the movie to be compressed, and it will determine the size automatically. it supports ogm encoding for audio as well

    program can be found here

    a guide for the program can be found here

    if i'm not mistaken, the new version of the program has a built-in guide, and i have found that 'dvd decrypter' to be a better ripper. codec has to be d/loaded seperately (divx or xvid etc.)

    Just a suggestion, but I use a program called DVDshrink. It's sweet. I can rip DVD's, and back them up to my hard drive, or DVD media. You can import image files, or raw files. I sometimes use it in conjunction with DVDdecryptor, also freeware, that is excellent at ripping DVD's, and sometimes reads semi-scratched ones by repairing with parity bits. It's a lot easier than taking as many steps as in your guide, and I haven't found a way to do it faster. With DVDshrink, you can reauthor your DVD's too, by chopping the credits, or editing out annoying "Special features" menus, or subtitles/audio in languages you don't need. Just make sure to read the How to guide on the website, and you'll be burning and ripping in no time. Just a suggestion.

    hey mate

    i use that exact same method, however i use all the programs direct from gordian knot (automates some of the steps), its the best method around and i HAV looked. Xvid gives so much better (and quicker) results than divx.
    Recently i bought the kiss DP-500 dvd player, so that i can play the xvid cd's on the tv.

    Excellent guide nevertheless.

    screenies are up!

    well, i finally got round to updating the guide with some screenies :) thanks for the kick up the bum jazzle (and for the email eyeinajar!)

    i still use this method, i guess i'm stuck in my ways. i keep hearing good things about AutoGK so i might give it a whirl some time soon (need to buy more dvds first :lol:).

    dvd shrink is useful for making quick and easy copies of a dvd direct to dvdr, but that's no use to me (i like to fit 6 movies or so onto a dvd). could be very useful for others though :)

    i'll post back with an update if i ever get round to using AutoGK (which i probably won't as i'm a bit of an old stick in the mud :D)

    glad people are still reading this guide though :) took quite a while to write it out (though it's handy if only for my own reference)

    good luck, and happy ripping :thumb:

    my flatmate wanted to start ripping dvds, so i showed him this guide. he then went on to say it looked too difficult, and could i do it for him... lazy bugger.

    the end result was my new step by step guide:

    Simple ten step guide to ripping and encoding dvds.

    1. Download and install both DVD Decrypter (http://www.dvddecrypter.com/) and AutoGK (http://www.autogk.me.uk/).
    2. Insert your DVD. Open DVD Decrypter.
    3. Choose IFO mode (Click "Mode" then select "IFO")
    4. Click the "Decrypt" button. The main movie from your DVD should rip to your hard drive. Close DVD decrypter.
    5. Open AutoGK.
    6. Next to "Input directory" browse to the VIDEO_TS folder of the image you just made with DVD decrypter.
    7. Next to "Output File" pick where you want the completed XviD file to go
    8. Choose the size you wish your finished file to be. Standard size is "1 CD (700Mb)" but you can choose any size you like. Of course, the smaller the file, the less the quality.
    9. Click "Add Job".
    10. Click "Start". The encoding process will take a few hours, all depending on the speed of your system.


    very very very VERY simple. the results aren't always up to the standard of the first guide, but it's so damn easy i tend to use this method myself now.

    anyway, you've got the choice now :)

    cool :cooldude:

    how did you do the whole moving mouse type thing in the guide?

    as far as i know, TMPGEnc Plus isn't free? one thing i'd like to do is burn xvids so they'd play on a basic standalone dvd player, but i'd like to do it for free.

    still, handy site :thumb:

    *SNIFF* DVD Decrypter is gone! *SNIFF*

    This is truely a sad day. You can get the whole story here. http://www.cdfreaks.com/news/11914

    As a side note I would like to send out a big F*** YOU to the company that forced Lighting_UK to close down the DVD Decrypter site. There are still sites hosting the latest release, although I have a feeling that many of the larger ones will stop as well facing legal pressure. This sucks alot for me too, cause my DVD to PPC tutorial on Aximsite.com just reached 20,000 views.

    Anyway, sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
    -Brad

    Used Flash to do them (takes ages!).

    At the time when I was experimenting, there were no good guides about (n00b lol), so I decided to do a little contibution for those people who found themselfs in the same situation as I was :D

    MrDT I just want to thank you for your guide. I followed it last night and now I have a great rip! I have never been able to do this before when i tried. I used the super easy method. One thing to point out is you should add the ac3 filters to your list of needed programs as I needed it to have sound. (No biggie really, i knew it was the problem when I didnt hear sound) Thanks again for the great guide!
