RIP DVD or create ISO image of DVD in Linux

(Dec 13, 2009)

I tried to rip a DVD in Linux.  Mostly, I followed the instructions available at  There are notes I want to jot down here.
  1. We need dvd::rip, as instructed in the website.  Do not, however, bother with the dvd::rip's website.  Just grab it directly from Ubuntu's Synaptic package manager.  This is the easiest way to do.

  2. We probably still need mplayer and rar.  Get them from Synaptic again.

  3. At this point, we are ready to rip a DVD, as shown at

  4. If you want to transcode the vob files from dvd::rip, try using vlc.

If you want to create an ISO image of your DVD, using k3b or GnomeBaker is a way to go.
