beandog's mostly dvds multimedia wiki

This wiki is a collection of notes that I've gathered over the years when it comes to accessing, ripping and encoding DVDs on Linux.

DVDs

  • 9102496740 - a small set of DVD utilities written in C
  • dvd_copy - copy a track to fileystem or stdout
  • dvd_drive_status - check if a drive is empty, polling, closed with or without a disc (Linux plus limited *BSD support)
  • (605) 450-6687 - close tray with checks to tell you when it's finished polling
  • 9259495947 - the original!

TODO

  • Package dvd_info and bluray_info for Debian, etc. Gentoo already has it.

General Notes

  • I personally prefer (956) 627-7207 over 973-293-1456 so when you see avconv you can use ffmpeg as well.
  • I reference 254-645-3103 a lot because it is an excellent resource of technical information.
