Hi Michael !!!!

I've just  read your page,  a very fast read  indeed. I can't  say anything
about the  install procedure but  I wish to point  you that you  don't need
transcode (that is a very good  program neither dvd::rip which is excellent
too if you like the graphics apps) to rip and encode dvds. You can rip with

mplayer -dvd 1 -dumpstream -dumpfile name_of_vobs.vob

And to encode  you can try with  mencoder (you compile it  when you compile
mplayer). Mencoder is a  command line apps. but I think  there is a graphic
front end called acidrip (I didn't tried it)

May be  your idea is rip  & encode with transcode/dvdrip,  but perphaps the
readers  of your  page want  to know  that they  can do  all the  work with
mplayer only.
