The-Boxhead Wrote:Okay ripping dvd works.

Some sugestions:

each time i start to rip a dvd i have to go trough the same screens, typing in with my remote all the info needed to change. This is not user friendly.
There should be some way to config these settings so that the ripping starts right away after you have choosen the iso name. then im thinking of:
/dev/sr0
/dvdrip
/ssh user@localhost

About the /dvdrip - this only works if you symlink. to use a local folder in the home directory you need to edit the line to: /home/xbmc/dvdrip

I also bellive that when you have setup your enviroment the only popup for the user should be about the iso file name, and possibly a "start" button.
theres to much popups now Wink

also a bug:
if you try to enter a directory that doesent exist it will crash.

Also when the ripping actually starts a progress bar in would be nice.
Possibly with a "pause" and "cancel" button on it.

I love your work and cant wait for the burn to dvd to become a feature Smile
this script has a high waf factor when tweaked a little Wink

gonna try transcoding soon and report back.

Most of the things you said are allready in the pipeline ...

if you define 1. time ->

-the source dvd
-the rip directory
-the proper ssh-command

should be fine ....
I will try to write this settings into a configuration-file ...

and BTW beta software has a lot of changes during development .-)

Thanks for the feedback ...

okay transcoding Smile

from my terminal-
./dvd2mpeg2.sh /dev/sr0 /home/xbmc/dvd-rip dvdvolume 1 1

works like a charm.

but from xbmc i just get tossed back to the main script after i have entered
where to store the transcoded file... no options for formats etc ?

okay EDIT:
./dvd2mpeg2.sh /dev/sr0 /home/xbmc/dvd-rip dvdvolume 1 1

that line transcodes the dvd directly from the disc...

i tried to use the iso file from xbmc....

i get carried away you know Smile thanks for all the hard work i know
you put into this. and i understand that this is beta but i gonna try and help
you as much as i can with testing.

i could also write up some new setup guidelines, but maybe wait
until you are at a more stable state ?

I also think that adding a file browser window to select ripping directory would
be a huge improvement.

Thanks :-=) I don't look on the time I needed. I never programmed in python before
1. june .... I still learning .... BTW The xbmc-script engine enables you to do allmost
anything ...

Yes there is a lot ow work to do ....
If you would like to help me to produce a better documentation ... fine .. you are my hero ;-)

In a week I would like to produce version 05.C in witch all settings storend inside
a configuration directory ~/dvdripper/configuration and the parameters for device
and ssh and directory never come up anymore :_=

This week I should also prepare some documentations for my students ;-)

TX you

Ok I guess you have to symlink your directory where you are storing the
the rips to /dvdrip

I saw it is hardcoded in the dialog ....

I know this is a problem but look on the other side every linux user
has its own partition schema ...

Some do ripp inside home ... some do ripp in a own partition
some do ripp to nfs shared directory (and some other do fill up
the root partition ....LOL )

All you have to do is to symlink your personal directory to /dvdrip
and yes .... it can be anywhere as long the symlink exist.

Regards
Hans

If you wont to transcode a rip do :

./dvd2mpeg2.sh /home/xbmc/dvd-rip/name.iso /home/xbmc/dvd-rip dvdvolume 1 1

It does exactly the same like from dvd but using a ripped dvd

and please do symlink your rip-directory to : /dvdrip
or
mount a big partition on this mount-point .-)

I received 1 nice little hate email from a very upset user from germany because the transcode process filled the root partition ...This user could try ln -s /dev/null /dvdrip and he has never more a problem with the space inside the rip directory LOL LOL LOL

Sorry but I don't feel responsible if my script is false installed .....

And in the EULA on startup it stands white on black.
Use at own risk !

With the introduction of H264 does that mean that the ripper can handle a blu-ray disc?

A few days ago I asked if someone would use this feature.
I do not need subtitles for my export (any format).

But I see there is may the need for a secound language to export.

Yeah a second language would be great.
Like i always make backup of my kids dvd's. They
usually have nordic subs, to pick one would be cool.
Same for audio language's

Usually i pick Norwegian subs if available and then Norwegian
voice and original english voice (for cartoons and anims)

So you would need subtitles and a secound audio language ...

OK ... is in the pipe ...

I do work on 0.5C in witch all settings are stored in configuration file

- dvd device
- rip-directory
- ssh command


What about the exported files ? mpeg1,mpeg2,h264 and ogm

Do they look good ?

I for one do favor the export h264 ...

So I could move the h264 menu-entry to the top .....

Exelent news. looking forward to next release and
also when do you plan on adding burn to disc capabillity ? Smile

H.264 is by far the logic format when ripping dvd's in my eyes.
Storage space these days are really not a problem and by the
large number of users using HD content i bellive it will make good sense to make that the default choice yes.

I also bellive that adding a browse dialog to select where to store rips would be very nifty for the not so techy xbmc user. then they could just browse to a networks source or whatever as they are used to in xbmc.
Then as you allready are planning on to store this settings for the next time is gonna be great. So the next time you only get asked about the name of the iso before you can rip. (in that dialog there sould be buttons to select another source and format if desirable but it default to last selections)

When it comes to how the ecoded files look i need to investigate som more
but gonna report back my findings here also.

I allready send some dvd to hell .-) Because the dual layer dvd's are very
expensive inside switzerland I wonna wait ....until somebdoy may have a tip
or a stupid trick ...

A ripped dvd should look to a burning application like a normal iso file.
But for some reasons I don't know my burnded dvd's from images are
only for the carbage ....
Before I can not produce a few well written dvd's it is still in the pipe ...

In meantime I also do make tests with vlc as streaming-server ....
You could view a ripped file
- in a browser
- in a ps3 or psp

Hans

why not create a smaller test iso file that doesent require dual layer
to investigate on. I also bellive that most burner programs support a "simulation" mode wich performs all the action exepct actually burning to the disk. I have no idea on linux though if this is possible Smile

what may also work is to install a virtual image recorder, it acts like a real recorder but writes a iso file instead. I have used this
when debugging stuff in windows but not sure if its possible in linux.
