This wizard will help you create high quality backups of DVD movies to XviD format.

It is supposed to be the opposite of the famous DVD:Rip tool: Easy to use, a minimal amount of adjustable settings and automatic detection of the optimal values of almost all adjustable settings. It should produce very high quality rips, even if you have no idea what the settings mean and just use it in the next-next-next-finish way.

The wizard supports title and language selection, AC3 stream copy or MP3 audio, single or two-pass encoding and automatic splitting at scene boundaries.

DVD Rip-O-Matic can also generate executable ripping scripts. This allows you to run it as a background process, end your KDE session and go to bed.

It has not been tested very well yet, so please tell me if it works for you.


* Kommander 1.0 ( Part of KDEWebDev package, version 3.3.x )

* Recent Transcode

* Recent MPlayer version with support for DVD reading, DVD decryption, LAME MP3 encoding and XviD encoding. MPlayer version 1.0rc5 and newer versions are known to work perfectly.

This release features a custom target size for the generated AVI file. This is very useful when you want to rip multiple titles and make them fit on a single CD or DVD.

Special thanks goes to Tijmen Collignon for having me borrow some of his messy NTSC disks.


VERSION 0.9 (March 4th 2005)

* Initial release

VERSION 0.91 (March 7th 2005)

* Updated some untranslated strings
* Updated installer to work when KDEDIR not set


* Check if MPlayer supports XviD on startup
* Attempt to rip NTSC movies properly


* Fixed installer to detect KDE path

VERSION 0.94 ( November 13th 2005 )

* Possibility to specify custom target file size
* Check for availability of MEncoder, Konsole and KDialog
* Some UI logic improvements

VERSION 0.95 ( October 7th 2006 )

* Add support for copying subtitles
* Fix detection of DTS Soundtracks
* Fix DVD movies with both DolbyDigital and DTS
* Minor layout/graphics updates

Great app again. Question:

How do I make sure the Dutch subtitles are encoded; does it take all the subtitles or does it ignore subitles?

 Error scanning

Any idea why it I would be getting an error scanning /dev/dvd when

1) I can do mplayer dvd://1 and it starts to play
2) I'm even getting this error as root

Also, I checked the permissions on /dev/dvd and they are all good. Thanks

I also get this error sometimes (on Kubuntu Dapper). I have all the programs installed and can rip some dvd's, but not all.

In some cases, even though I can play a dvd disc with both kaffeine and kmplayer, DVD Rip-O-Matic just says it cannot find dvd's.

If I can be of any help solving this problem (supply some error logs, command outputs, etc), please let me know. It is a great app!

DVD Rip-O-Matic also needs Transcode to have DVD support. It tries to run this command:

tcprobe -i /dev/dvd -T 1

If this fails on your machine, DVD Rip-O-Matic will fail as well.

 Possible improvemen?

Hye, I've been thinking about your nice little app and it has quite some potential with this comment I hope to help a bit.

Distinction between movie dvd's and music dvd's. Music DVD's offer often extra clips but all in one file, perhaps it could be possible to select you want to rip a music-track so it can cut it into different parts (like every new "scene" is a different clip, the possibility to cut the track in pieces is already there, the ammount of desired tracks is just not that much (which is good for movie DVD's, not so for concerts/musicclips).

Possibility for as-lossless-as-possible, or "open-format" ripping (in for example flac and xvid, or vorbis and theora or..., just somewhere hidden, apparently for some reason I can't play the files it creates in Kubuntu). And perhaps subtitle selection, can't remember if it does this already, it's been a while since I used it.

I know this program is ment to be just click and run and keep it simple, but I think these options could be quite usefull for people who just want to rip DVD's to their computer, but I think giving the possibility to tweak it a little shouldn't get in the way of an easy and simple approach.

 Good + bad

This is a very nice app -- thanks!


- The target file size doesn't work. When I set it to 700MB I got 515MB, and 350MB became 502MB (another file).

- It would be nice to be able to skip faster between pages.

- If I haven't selected a format that requires splitting, that page shouldn't be shown.

- There's a translation error on the cropping page.

- Suggestion: Make it possible to enter target file name and folder.

- Suggestion: Make it possible to use other folders than /dev/dvd. As it is now I have to mount dvd images to /dev/dvd or use links.

Thanks again!

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
