This is a discussion on DVD Boxset To AVI? within the Digital Video Encoding forums, part of the DVD Backup Recording forum category; I have a complete DVD boxset of the 10 year TV series ...
I have a complete DVD boxset of the 10 year TV series friends and I'm looking to use it on a media player as opposed to playing the DVD discs in a DVD player.
What I would like to do is have each series episodes as single .avi files.
What software, pay for or free, will let me do this without having to go back to College?
What I am confused about is the procedure & software required to get the individual episodes off the original disc's.
Would something like Shrink do it for me?
I'm not that proficient in this area so I'm open to all suggestions from those more capable than I
7th would be able to give you the ans of the top of his head gman
rtm mite be around he should know
Do you know if the individual episodes are broke up into seperate titlesets Gman? There is prolly at least 5 epsiodes per disk. IF they are broke in to seperate titlesets then it can be easily done with Shrink or Decrypter or even a few others. If they are not it gets a little more cumbersome.
All DVD's have VOB IFO & PUP files I think & I don't have a TV series to hand right now to check, does each episode have a VOB file or can each VOB file contain many episodes?
Episodic discs are sometimes a different animal. They should be set up as separate vobs and therefore easily ripped with Dvd Shrink in reauthor mode where you should be able to simply drag and drop them then continue with the process from there. You'll probably need autoGK to convert them to .avi after ripping.
Sorry lads, didn't realize everyone was waiting on me.
When i get home i'll pull one off the shelf and have a look for you Gman.

Now that i think about it, Dvd Decrypter in IFO mode will do this, as well as CloneDvd Mobile.
The reason that I ask about the seperate titlesets is becasue you said that you wanted each individual episode as its own avi file.
I have had some episode disks where they were all 1 titles set, so when you add the ifo for that vob set to AGK then you will have all the episodes as one avi. So if that was the case then you would have to look at what epsiode went with what numbers of vob files and merge them then you can add that to agk for converting.What I would like to do is have each series episodes as single .avi files.
