imageRip DVD’s the easy way in Ubuntu – without the need to install any extra applications – using web-based SimpleRip.

SimpleRip is an online JavaScript-based command generator for Mencoder.  It allows you to generate the necessary commands to encode a movie directly from a DVD title to an Xvid file with a minimum of fuss.

By using this web-based approach anyone can easily generate the commands needed to encode video in the desired way. Toggle some boxes, enter your preferences and the genertor spits out a command that you can then copy-and-paste into a terminal window.
