QuickRip DVD

QuickRip is a basic DVD ripper for GNU/Linux written in Python and PyQt. It lacks options to fine-tune how you want to rip your DVD, but it makes ripping quick and easy, and so is ideal for those who aren't bothered about framerates, clipping, and other unecessary options. It uses mplayer and transcode to retrieve DVD info and rip the tracks.
