I just switched from windows to ubuntu, on windows I used clonedvd to rip each episode out as an ISO, is there a comparable program on linux?

Not sure if this is what you need, it wont generate an iso, just a vob, but that works fine.

First use "lsdvd" to look into the chapters of the DVD.

Then: mplayer dvd://$track -dvd-device "$source" -dumpstream -dumpfile work.vob

where:
$track=number of track to rip
$source=can be an iso of a DVD or can be "/dev/dvd" for your dvd player

yes, you can rip the movie title in the same way.

Not sure about the ISO, if what you mean is to create a DVD compatible ISO that plays the main movie and that's all, you should be able to do it with dvdauthor and the vob file just ripped. I didn't try it, but should work.

dvdauthor -o work -x dvd.xml

where work is an empty folder where the DVD structure will go and dvd.xml is a simple xml file:

Code:
<dvdauthor>
    <vmgm />
    <titleset>
        <titles>
            <pgc>
                <vob file="chapterx.vob" />
            </pgc>
        </titles>
    </titleset>
</dvdauthor>

then:

mkisofs -dvd-video -o dvdimage.iso work/


Too much work if you ask me, but should work. Maybe there is a frontend for this, I'm not sure about that. This should be scriptable very easily.

If you use KDE (or even don;t) you might try k9copy. It describes itself as a dvdshrink clone but does much more (it hasn't stop developing.)

thanks, JB! K9copy is exactly what I am looking for. Easy to use as well.

Are there any programs similar to Media Companion that I can use to create my NFo files and manage all my movies and tvshow?
