I have been trying for hours to install dvd:rip ( perl-Video-DVDRip ) without any luck. I found the following information on [/url][url=]


6.7 Why complains transcode about a missing VIDEO_TS.IFO file?

That's Ok. The corresponding messages are printed by libdvdread if you transcode files on harddisk (which is the default case with dvd::rip). You see something like this:

 libdvdread: Couldn't find device name.
 libdvdread: Can't open file VIDEO_TS.IFO.

but these are only (very confusing) warning messages of libdvdread, which naturally can't find any DVD device or VIDEO_TS.IFO file if started from a directory with only VOB files in it. Just ignore these messages, and please don't report this as a bug.


After reading this I became more confused then when I started. This is the error I get after trying to transcode the ripped vob's:


Job 'Transcoding video - title #2, pass 1' failed.

Executed command: mkdir -m 0775 -p '/home/elrond/DvD/StevieRayVaughn/tmp' && cd /home/elrond/DvD/StevieRayVaughn/tmp && dr_exec transcode -H 10 -a 0 -x vob -i /home/elrond/DvD/StevieRayVaughn/vob//002 -w 3504,50 -b 128,0,0 --a52_drc_off -f 24,1 -M 2 -Y 4,2,4,6 -B 1,11,8 -R 1 -y xvid,null -o /dev/null --print_status 20 && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS

If anyone knows what is wrong please let me know i been searching for an answer for hours...

try putting "--accel 3dnow" in the box in the bottom right of the transcode page that says "transcode options" . From what I understand this has something to do with the latest transcode version auto detecting something incorrectly about AMD processors. If you tell it to do that then it gets it right. I also turned off the whatever bug check thing in the options but I dont know if that had any affect. Good luck!
