OGMRip – Ripping and encoding DVDs into AVI/OGM files

Sponsored Link
OGMRip is an application and a set of libraries for ripping and encoding DVD into AVI, OGM, MP4, or Matroska files using a wide variety of codecs. It relies on mplayer, mencoder, ogmtools, mkvtoolnix, mp4box, oggenc, lame, and faac to perform its tasks.

The GUI features a clean HIG-compliant GNOME 2 interface and tries to minimize as much as possible esoteric settings.

    I gave this a try, ripping a copy of a DVD to .avi format.

    It worked great until it hit about 70% complete, then just hung there for about an hour. I tried it a few times with this same result, being forced to cancel every time.

    Did you try a different DVD?

    Does anyone else have any experiences with this?

    Same problem here although mine stops at 97%. I left it for about 2hrs and then canceled it.
