OT: Linux DVD backup
- View SourceHi all,
Looking into getting a DVD burner, and doing a little research.
There's Windows utilities out there aplenty that will take a DVD9, and
using compression, will shrink the DVD down into 1 DVD5, or split the
DVD9 into two DVD5's.
My home DVD player is crap, and doesn't play SVCD, XSVCD, or anything
aside from VCD - so I want to keep the DVD structure intact. I've found
dvdbackup to decrypt and rip the original to the hard drive. Transcode
and dvd::rip will do the same + encode the VOB's to SVCD, et al. But
what I'm looking for is something that keeps the VOB DVD structure in
place, just compresses or splits the originals. I can't and won't run
Windows. Anyone have any ideas?
