ANDREW's Not a DVD Ripping and Encoding Wizard, but a command-line interface that simplifies the use of some programs to create AVI, Matroska, MP4, or OGM files from DVDs. ANDREW runs in interactive or batch mode; works on-the-fly or ripping DVDs to the hard drive; handles progressive, telecine, and interlaced NTSC and PAL formats; selects multiple audio and subtitle tracks by preferences or in full manual mode; splits movies into several files or encodes them by target size or video bit rate; and more.
vidprofile is a collection of a few components that finds the best way to create MPEG video with mjpegtools. It fully characterizes mpeg2enc from mjpegtools and helps answer the question: given a file size limit, what are the best mpeg2enc options (and values) to use that give the highest possible quality MPEG video? mpeg2enc has an abundance of command line options, and each one tweaks the encoded output (some options tweak to larger degrees than others). vidprofile offers a set of tools to let the user fully test each of the options in mpeg2enc and quantify the output video's size and quality.
