Projects / tuxrip


Tuxrip is a Linux bash script for ripping and encoding DVD titles in mpeg4 format (DivX, XviD, FFmpeg libavcodec). It features per title or full DVD ripping, audio extraction and encoding, support for multi-audio tracks, 2-pass video compression for a given file size and quality, compressibility testing for optimal quality and resolution determination, support for codec options, audio/video synchronization, CD burning, and automatic computer shutdown. It uses OggVorbis for encoding audio and either FFmpeg libavcodec or XviD as video codecs. It can use Ogg or Matroska containers and supports subtitles in vobsub format. Subtitles are muxed in matroska container and are automatically compressed.
