I'm having the same problem as HermanR. DVD Shrink crashes when I try to load the ripped dvd files already on my hard drive.

bash-2.05b$ wine dvd-Shrink31.exe
Could not stat /home/bonedaddy/.wine/${HOME} (No such file or directory), ignoring drive Y:

dvd shrink runs but when I try to open vob files, it crashes and gives me this:

wine: Unhandled exception (thread 0029), starting debugger...
X Error of failed request: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)
Major opcode of failed request: 70 (X_PolyFillRectangle)
Resource id in failed request: 0x3800153
Serial number of failed request: 33874
Current serial number in output stream: 33908

Any ideas?

Please ignore my request, I found the solution in another forum post.
I switched from dvd shrink 3.2 to 2.3

Yep, 2.3 works fine, but 3.2 has many new features... Maybe it will work with wine in the future...

OK, so basically...

I think the reason these discs don't play on standalone players or with most software problems even though the VIDEO_TS folder is OK is that growisofs makes a pure ISO filesystem, and when I burn DVD Video with Nero, it burns UDF/ISO format... and those work fine.

So... any ideas on how to do that in linux? :-/

I've burned more than 40 DVDs with growisofs (not a single one with another program!) and every DVD works fine.

The command I use:
Code:
growisofs -dvd-video -V "NAME" -Z /dev/sr0 -R -J PATH/


edit: actually more than 50 :)

I got an issue with the
Code:
mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /mnt/hdd/DVD/TOXICAVENGER3.img /mnt/hdd/DVD/PAL_TOXIC_AVENGER_3/


it gives me this
Code:
mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /mnt/hdd/DVD/TOXICAVENGER3.img /mnt/hdd/DVD/PAL_TOXIC_AVENGER_3/                                         
mkisofs 2.01a24 (i686-pc-linux-gnu)
Scanning /mnt/hdd/DVD/PAL_TOXIC_AVENGER_3/
Scanning /mnt/hdd/DVD/PAL_TOXIC_AVENGER_3/VIDEO_TS
mkisofs: Either VIDEO_TS.IFO or VIDEO_TS.VOB is not of correct size.
mkisofs: Unable to make a DVD-Video image.
Segmentation fault


but when i triy in the VIDE_TS folder like this it works but then the VIDEO_TS doesnt exist in the image and then the DVD dosent work in a sstandalone DVDPlayer
Code:
 mkisofs -dvd-video -v -o /mnt/hdd/DVD/TOXICAVENGER3.img /mnt/hdd/DVD/PAL_TOXIC_AVENGER_3/VIDEO_TS/   


What can be wrong?

I had trouble with wine and dvdshrink 3.17. In another thread they suggested to try 3.0b5 or so. This one seems to work just fine without any special tuning of wine :D
Don't know about the new features from 2.3 to 3.0b5 but it's worth a try. Also, installing is no problem cause it's still only a single-file-application.

dvdrip is great, really! hm well, it's not for those who don't want to install transcode and all of its dependencies.
The point is, AFAIK dvdrip won't create a dvd for you that will be playable in standalone players,it will only rips..

edit: i think k3b is supposed to be used as a frontend for transcode. but I think it's very limited, didn't try it

I'm using lxdvd to backup my dvd's (emerge lxdvd)
lxdvd works in textmode and does all those steps automatically for you, ripping dvd, shrinking (with vamps), burning and much more.
It's easy to configure and really a great assistance!

I agreee, lxdvdrip is pretty great, its only problem is that it only copies the main title from DVD9's. So does the DVD9TO5 script linked above. This is fine for 'normal' movies, and completely useless for any DVD with multiple features per disc. I'm still looking for an easy way to do this, at this point I still do it manually. Feel free to jump in if you know if a good program/script...

From the site:
Quote:
There are three major issues that aren't related to transcoding. One is that that there is no support for menus.

Also, that script actually re-encodes the video instead of requanting it, which takes an extremely long time and drops the quality. lxdvdrip is really superior.

I got a little question. I emerged cdrtools, but I cannot find dvd+rw-tools from portage. Is it floating around with different name or package?

Thanks in advance.

Does anyone know how groisofs or any other tool will deal with region codes. I have a US standalone dvd player, but a DVD from a different region that I would like to play some place other than my PC. Will copying the DVD remove the region code? Any ideas from people that have dealt with this?

2Oktane:

Code:
~>$ emerge dvd+rw-tools -pv

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Calculating dependencies ...done!
[ebuild   R   ] app-cdr/dvd+rw-tools-5.20.4.10.8  0 kB

Total size of downloads: 0 kB

2dasalvagg:
growisofs just write it down iso-image from mkisofs;
mkisofs NOT ADD any region code;
if your video - just your home video => you'll made a region free DVD;
if your video - ripped from DVD (with rippers) => you'll made a region free DVD;
if your video - copied from DVD (w/o rippers) => you can got a region protected DVD (same as original)

Allright, I emerged it succesfully. But I noticed strange thing:
Code:

thoroughbred oktane # emerge -s dvd+rw-tools
Searching...   
[ Results for search key : dvd+rw-tools ]
[ Applications found : 0 ]
 

thoroughbred oktane # emerge -p dvd+rw-tools

These are the packages that I would merge, in order:

Hi all,
After I tried rip DVD with this method I found out that It was not what I wanted (also have no luck run DVDshrink under wine :cry: ). So, I tried lxdvdrip. It is very very cool program that help you do everything automatically. It can copy the whole DVD, part copy (select titles you want - suitable for series TV DVD), high quality (split title into 2 DVD discs), subtitles , select audio channel (DTS, AC3 5.1) etc.. Give it a try... :lol:

yeah i have k3b its nice... i havent tried it with a dvd yet, i didnt know it worked with dvds (im using dvd-rw media)


K3B works great to burn dvd .iso if you've already processed them with dvdshrink for instance. One small caveat...make sure you do NOT keep the type to Automatic otherwise your dvd will be unplayable. Manually set it to DAO (Disc at once) and your all set.

excellent tut =]
I'm kinda new to the whole cd/dvd authoring thing so to give it a try I had files from VIDEO_TS locally saved but it seems the IFO file is bad and mkisofs will not run. I'm wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

Woah. I'm psyched to check out vamps. I have been using dvd shrink in wine. But, on my new AMD64 machine, I haven't gotten wine running yet.

I was wondering what people are using to split a DVD onto two DVD-5s? Let's say I didnt' want to shrink and I wanted control over which titles I wanted on which disk. I'd love not to have to use wine for this, but even if I used wine, I don't know which app is the best for this sort of thing.

DVDShrink 3.2 does not produce an .iso that linux can handle, if you read Shrinks data on 3.2 it explains exactly the modifications, 3,17 is the latest versio I got working, anyone wanting it just drop a line and I will email to you.

As far as dvd to dvdr, whats the issue

emerge vobcopy

# vobcopy /mnt/path/to/cdrom -l -n 1 -O . -t "dvd title"

if this fails the just

# vobcopy -m

(you can just use vobcopy -m if already mounted, type vobcopy --help to get help on title name etc, but this is really not required)

mkisofs -dvd-video -udf /path/to/filename > /path/to/filename.iso

so now you have an .iso too big for a 4.4gb disk

emerge wine

# wine /path/to/dvdshrink3.17setup.exe

during set up do not put an icon on the desktop or say yes to any shortcuts

now put your own icon on the screen with command

wine '/home/username/.wine/fake_windows/Program Files/DVD Shrink/DVD Shrink 3.1.exe'

then click to run,

file > open disk image

then allow to analyse then

then click backup

then select .iso as tgt image and browse to /Z/home and give a name.iso to save as

then write cd image with k3b (dont sk me why cd image it just works ok)

presto backed up dvd, menus extras and all, record so far, both disks from schindlers list and all extras on one disk, some 8.9gb, with little noticable loss in quality

I have been using this simple 3 step process for a while now and find a full backup takes around 40 minutes with burntime, I never had any joy with dvdbackup or growiso,
