It is a Perl script that would take one DVD (DVD-9, ~7.9GB) and write the main feature, perfectly, to a DVD-R (DVD-5, ~4.7GB). If required by space constraints, a requantization will be performed using
Create a configuration file named
.dvd9to5.conf like the following:
# dvd9to5.conf file for dvd9to5.pl # Device to rip from #DVDRipDev /dev/dvd DVDRipDev /home/niccolo/video/VIVA_ZAPATERO # Device to burn to DVDBurnDev /dev/dvd # Burn Speed BurnSpd 2 # Work directory where files will be stored (need a lot o space :) ) WorkDir /home/niccolo/video/tmp
Tha program can rip the DVD directly from the device or from a directory tree created with dvdbackup.
The DVD directory tree will be generated into the directory
dvdauthor. All the required
.BUP file will be geneated.
The program will write the DVD-R media if present into the
DVDBurnDev drive, otherwise you can burn the disk later with:
growisofs -speed=2 -Z /dev/dvd -dvd-video WorkDir/dvd
See the detailed
WorkDir/dvd9to5.log if you want to know what the program did.
