I’m looking to make a complete backup of my family’s DVD and CD libraries by turning them into plain unencrypted media files that can just be played by whatever software. And I just might create torrents for some of the ones that don’t already have established highly seeded torrents.
Except, I’ve been trying all day on and off get a DVD ripper with automatic decryption set up on my machine and can’t figure it out. I use Fedora, and none of the ones I read about are on the standard package manager, probably because Fedora doesn’t want to get sued. I have tried the source code for the major ones but again, they have next to no official or even unofficial documentation, need dependencies which I can’t figure out where to get, or the compile or run crashes with cryptic errors, or errors out when . Web searching has been less than helpful with any of these problems.
Has anyone here gotten a decrypting DVD ripper working on Linux? Can you share what steps you took, or what documentation/tutorial you followed? I really don’t want to have to use Windows or proprietary software for this, because for the former, it’s… Windows, and for the latter, I don’t trust it because piracy software can be shady AF.
