This Perl module consists currently of two major components:
1. A low level OO style API for ripping and transcoding
DVD video, which is based on Thomas Oestreichs program
transcode, a Linux Video Stream Processing Tool.
This API is currently well undocumented.
2. A Gtk+ based Perl program called dvd::rip which provides
a nice GUI to control all necessary steps from ripping,
adjusting all parameters and transcoding the video to
the format you desire.
The distribution name is derived from the Perl namespace it occupies:
Video::DVDRip. Although the DVD Ripper GUI is called dvd::rip, because
its shorter and easier to pronounce (if you omit the colons... ;)
Youll find all information regarding installation and usage of
dvd::rip in the README file shipped with the distribution or
on the dvd::rip homepage:
