How to Rip a DVD in Ubuntu Linux

First, install Handbrake:

sudo apt-get install nasm build-essential devscripts fakeroot
mkdir ~/tmp
cd tmp
dpkg-source -x x264_0.0.20050906-1.dsc
cd x264-0.0.20050906/
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
sudo apt-get install debhelper libgtk2.0-dev jam nasm liba52-dev libavcodec-dev libdvdcss2-dev libdvdread3-dev libfaac-dev libmpeg2-4-dev liblame-dev libmp4v2-dev libogg-dev libsamplerate-dev libvorbis-dev libwxgtk2.6-dev libx264-dev libxvidcore-dev
tar -xzvf HandBrake-0.6.2-src.tar.gz
cd HandBrake-0.6.2
sudo cp HBTest /usr/local/bin/handbrake

Next, follow the instructions from the Ubuntu Forums to compile and install MPlayer 2.0 from CVS.

Now we can actually rip the DVD:

cd ~/tmp
handbrake -e xvid -E ac3 -2 -S 1400 -i /dev/cdrom -o MOVIENAME.avi

Finally, split the DVD into two files:

mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy -endpos 700MB -o MOVIENAME.CD1.avi MOVIENAME.avi

The output will finish with something like:

Video stream: 1297.378 kbit/s  (162172 B/s)  size: 638610165 bytes  3937.851 secs  94414 frames

Note the number of seconds (in this case: 3937).

mencoder -ovc copy -oac copy -ss NUMER_OF_SECONDS -o MOVIENAME.CD2.avi MOVIENAME.avi

That's it!

Defeat Apple's Anti-DVD-Screenshot DRM

Apple disables the OS X screenshot capability while a DVD is playing, but there is a workaround.

Using terminal, type in this command.
screencapture -i ~/Desktop/filename.jpg

Your mouse should turn into crosshairs. Now hit the space bar. Your mouse should now be a camera. Click the window the DVD is playing in. A file called "filename.jpg" will appear on your desktop.
