*update* How do you "rip" a dvd into an .avi movie file?
    #2050907 - 10/28/03 05:01 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Is there a good program you can download to rip a dvd into an .avi file? You know, like the movie files that you can get from kazza are .avi files, how do you make one from an original dvd please?

Heres a good start. The whole site is good, but the link zeros in to what you are wondering about.

I ended up using smart ripper to rip, and DVDx for encoding. One more question though. On DVDx there is an option to limit filesizes to specified ammounts (<700 mb for cd), but instead of making the file conform to 700 mb, it just chops the movie into 2 parts with one being 700mb and the remainder in a second file. All over kazza there are .avi movies with 700mb, 698mb, 688mb etc. filesizes. This leads me to believe that there must be an encoder to make the movie conform to a specified filesize, yet leave it as one file. Anyone know what encoder to get, or otherwise know how I can make movies fit on one cd?

http://www.vcdhelp.com

That site has pretty much everything you'll ever need to rip to your hearts content.
Are you re-encoding into avi or leaving the movie in mpeg2? Essentially, the rip you made in mpeg2 is going to be super high quality which would have to be downsized significantly in order to fit it on one disk. Download a bit of the same movie you ripped from disk for a nice comparison. I find that the quality degradation isn't worth putting a film on one disk, but I'm picky as hell (which is why I bought a dvd burner :tongue:). 

After a bit more browsing on that site I found the exact link you'll need.
