How to Rip DVD in Ubuntu Linux : Thoggen

Thoggen is DVD ripping utility for Linux based on GTK+

It has a very nice Graphical front end
  • Supports title preview, picture cropping, and picture resizing.

  • Language Selection for audio track (no subtitle support yet though)

  • Encodes into Ogg/Theora video

  • Can encode from local directory with video DVD files

  • Based on the GStreamer multimedia framework, which makes it fairly easy to add additional encoding formats/codecs in future.

Thoggen supports opening DVD and DVD ISO images or reading a DVD directory which contains the VIDEO_TS folder. In the case of encrypted DVDs you may need libdvdcss2. Install this using help from here

To install thoggen in ubuntu

$ sudo apt-get install thoggen
