dvd_info - a set of utilities for accessing DVDs Includes: * dvd_info - display information about a DVD in human-readable or JSON output, disc title, disc ID, disc chapters in OGM container format * dvd_copy - copy a DVD title to the filesystem * dvd_drive_status - display drive status: open, closed, closed with disc, or polling Requirements: * libdvdread >= 4.2.1 (libdvdcss required for decryption) Homepage: * http://dvds.beandog.org/doku.php?id=dvd_info The git repo on github is intended to build from a straight pull. There are programs I'm working on that are not in the Makefile.am yet (or there are more than are in the repo). You can, of course, try to build it, but I don't target releases here. If you're going to do a lot of reads on a disc drive, I'd recommend mounting it so the access can be cached -- this is especially helpful when using / testing bluray_copy a lot to get chapters, titles, playlists, etc. # mount /dev/sr0 -o ro -t udf /mnt/dvd Depending on your luck / region / disc drive / disc / local alien invasion, you may or may not be able to make an ISO directly from a disc. If you want to give it a whirl, I recommend ddrescue: $ ddrescue -b 2048 -n /dev/sr0 dvd.iso ddrescue.log I try porting my code to other systems, and in addition to popular Linux distros, it runs fine on BSD systems as well. I take a minimalist approach to my code, and so there is only the minimum of required autotools content in the repo: configure.ac and Makefile.am This allows the user to build the config files on their system. Run "autoreconf -fi" and you'll have the familiar configure, make, make install setup.

I use dvdbackup, and that's what I'd recommend. See http://dvdbackup.sourceforge.net/ Support: I love hunting down anomalies, so if you run into something odd on a disc, let me know and I'd love to look into it. Bug reports are good, too. If you want to say thanks, buy me a Blu-ray disc :D There's nothing I'd love more than a new disc to play with (and something to watch as well).
