Ripping/Backing up my DVD to a MPG? OS X?

Fri Dec 24, 2004 12:45 am

Any suggestions?

It appears that the cleanest way to accomplish this is to rip my DVD files as a single MPG file. Can anyone guide me to an app to get this done?

I can get rip them as VOB's, but would prefer a single file.

Thanks!

I haven't tried it, but I would think that transcoding with VLC to
a single file from a playlist might be possible.

Seems like a long way around, but I'll give it a shot.

All I really want is to be able to create a single .mpg file (as in the example in the docs) on a MAC OS X machine.

Thanks

dude you need ffmpegx for osx. Its a biit odd to install as you need to download its libraries and encoders from different websites it links you to but its worth taking the time to do. I converted an unencrypted movie that was a few vob's to a atsc mpeg2 and enjoyed it being served from my powerbook just last night. That was with quicktime pro doing the encoding. I am going to try sorensons squeeze and cleaner for mac this evening as they are known for cleaner video encoding.

hope it helps

You can also use Mac the Ripper to output the whole movie into a single VOB. Its a pretty good all around DVD ripper.
