I'm new to mencoder (but not to Linux) and am having some problems converting
a DVD to AVI. I have been recording videos from my lab microscope onto DVD-
RW using a new Sony RDR-VX530 DVD recorder. The DVD I've made has 99 short
titles on it.
If I run the following:
mencoder /dev/dvd -ovc lavc -oac mp3lame -lameopts abr:br=128 \
-lavcopts vbitrate=900:v4mv:vhq:vcodec=mpeg4 -vf pp=de,scale=480:-2 \
I get a file "film.avi" that I can play with mplayer. I'm not sure where it
starts, but it is not track 1. I have been unable to pull off a given track.
This command, for example:
mencoder dvd://10 -dvd-device /dev/dvd -ovc lavc ...
gives the following errors:
libdvdread: Encrypted DVD support unavailable.
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO failed
libdvdnav:DVDOpenFileUDF:UDFFindFile /VIDEO_TS/VIDEO_TS.BUP failed
libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.
Can't open VMG info!
File not found: '10'.
Failed to open dvd://10.
Cannot open file/device.
If I mount /dev/dvd and do a find, I see one directory (DVD_RTAV) with 3
files (VR_MANGR.BUP, VR_MANGR.IFO, VR_MANGR.VRO) below it. All of these are
readable (mode 777). Acidrip found the DVD but was unable to show me a
listing of the titles. Calling lsdvd gave the error "Can't open main ifo!".
This is running under Debian etch with the following installed (from deb
I'd appreciate any advice on how I could convert selected titles to AVI.
