mencoder to rip DVDs into
.avi files under Linux. The following one-liner assumes that the DVD is mounted and available under
dvd://, the first track is to be encoded into
MPEG4 video with 1200Kbps bit rate, the video is (or gets) scaled to 640 width, the lame lib is used to encode sound into
mp3 at 128Kbps bit rate. Here is the (long) one-liner, enjoy:
