BatchRip is a command-line 'batch' front-end to 'dvdshrink' allowing you to archive multiple titles from a single (or multiple) DVD(s). The executable file is 'batchrip.sh'.
BatchRip will use the DVDShrink configuration as needed.
BatchRip requires that you have all of the necessary dependencies for 'dvdshrink' installed and functioning.
Uses 'dvdshrink' to archive multiple titles to MPEG2 then optionally builds 'dvdauthor' XML files and authors the DVD(s)
Tell batchrip.sh which audio stream to rip from the DVD9.
Tell batchrip.sh to start the DVD5 burn after ripping and otherwise
processing the source DVD9. This will prompt you to insert the cor-
rect blank. This infers the -d and -x options.
Tell batchrip.sh to author the new DVD5 on the hard drive.
Tell batchrip.sh how many episodes should be authored per DVD5. The
script is capable of ripping a whole series of original DVDs and storing
ALL of the MPEG2 files on the hard drive; then authoring and burning ALL
of the new DVDs in a single 'batch' run. To do this issue batchrip.sh with
only the -e option specifying how many episodes to put on each new DVD5
_UNTIL_ the last time batchrip.sh is called. For the last run tell
batchrip.sh to burn the new DVD5s by issuing the -B option. All of the
DVD5s will be authored and burnt in sequence with the correct number of
episodes per DVD.
To be used _ONLY_ when a single DVD5 is to be burnt. No prompt will be is-
sued by the script and multiple devices are neccessary.
Batchrip.sh will run in interactive mode querying you for information.
Tell batchrip the number of the last title in a sequence from a to b to
rip where a is the title to start with and b is the title to end with.
Tell batchrip to delete the log files created after a successful rip.
Tell batchrip.sh to use a specific show (or project) name instead of
querying the source DVD for the information.
Set a storage location for ISO images
Tell batchrip to save an ISO image for archiving along with the DVD
-r|--riplist <comma delimited list>
Tell batchrip to rip the specified titles in order as given. Normally
batchrip.sh will rip all the titles starting at the start title and
ending with the last title specified by the -s and -l options.
If you want to only rip titles 2,4,5 and 8 then issue -r 2,4,5,8.
Tell batchrips.sh which title to start with when you wish to copy all
of the titles from a to b.
Tell batchrip.sh to rip the same subtitle stream for each title it
Tell batchrip.sh to build an XML file for each new DVD5 that it will be
writing with the specified number of episodes on each new DVD. Infers
the -d option.
