Well, not hard. Just figure out what title and chapter the trailers
you want to rip are on. That can be done with most DVD playing
applications, especially those with Menu support (which MPlayer sadly
does not have)

Not a problem
mencoder dvd://(title here) -chapter (start chapter)-(end chapter. If
just one chapter, same numbers) -ovc lavc -lavcopts
That'll be MPEG-4 in an AVI container. If you want them in an MPEG-1
container, you'll have to read the documentation, I'm not too up on
that one. If you want MPEG-4 in an MPEG-4 container, though, look
into the ffmpeg code, I think they have that in their own code.
Now, another option is to use MPEG-2. There should be a way to just
dump the MPEG-2 code from that chapter/title without having to even
transcode it, I think. Again, you'll have to check the documentation
on that one.

I'm not totally sure here. Technically, the trailer is copyrighted
content. You would have to check on the licensing.

No one ever said otherwise.
