Just tonight version 1.5 of a program called Forty-Two was released and I must say its a godsend. Now I can backup all my DVDs to DVD-Rs so that if they get scratched Im not SOL. The best part yet is that it is Donationware and frankly its opened up a lot of door for me.

    i'd use that program but i'm looking for a faster way, i mean 30hrs on a 733MHz G4 is to insane (thats to make a DVD from a dual layered)

    Yeah they made a mode just for users like you. New to 1.5 Added Quarter 1 DVD mode:You sacrifice resolution for smaller files and faster overall encoding time, but you still get high DVD bitrates, AC3 Audio and anamorphic scaling. 1 min, CBR 7000K Video/AC3 audio is about 27MB. Its not as nice as D1 Full frame but much nicer than (S)VCD since it uses the full vertical 480 for wide screen. So for people with non dual rigs can go this route. In addition 1.5 exports .bin/.cue files so no more DVD Sutdio Pro work and audio encoding is 5x faster.

    I'm kinda surprised that Apple allows that to be hosted on .mac. It must include copy-protection breaker software, which is probably illegal, right?

    It only works on DVDs not on ripped images or vobs extracted. So, you physically have to have the movie. Its part of your rights to make a back up copy of movies, music cd, or software (IIRC) that you own. So this program only allows you to excersize your rights. Not to mention they have the same kind of disclaimer that is on the iPod... Don't Steal Movies.

    Does this work without Altivec? Im trying to rip my shrek dvd down to divx and nothing is happening. It goes through Phase 1 and 2 Analysis and then starts encoding and then declares it is done! Yet the movie file is empty.



    I think Im doing this wrong...

    How do you make a DVD dupe of a dual-layered DVD? I have an image of The Game sitting on my hard drive, ripped in DVDExtractor. How can I burn this? I am going to be using a PowerBook G4 12" SuperDrive to do this.



    So, Forty-Two really makes actual DVD copies? I can't wait to start duping DVDs with my SuperDrive.

    Actually, thanks to the DCMA, you don't have that right in the United States. Since the contents of a DVD are encrypted, they are covered by the DCMA and cannot be converted to another format even if you own a liscense for that movie.



    I believe there is a law in the works now that will restore your fair use rights.

    You cannot rip from images I thought I covered this already, only from the disk.



    YES RTFM! Rule one. <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />

    Ok, well we all don't live in the US and not all disks use CSS encription. I dislike not having fair use rights so I'm glad a law is gonna fix it. Good thing I covered my rear end with an IIRC (if I rember correctly).

    Word up. Oh Canada, etc...



    But you think you know slow! It will be about 20 hours for me to rip to 'Single CD Divx' on my ibook (its going right now). But the quality looks great.

    I hope you adjusted the bitrate for the length of your movie using a bitrate calculator like Mr. bitbudget or else your one cd divx will not fit on one cd Yeah it really helps to have a dual processor system let alone a G4. Forty-Two is both multiprocessor aware and uses altivec. As far as I can tell the quality is good and will only get better. As a last word I can say hey the price is right, its donationware! You like it and use it send em some cash. You hate it and dont use it, delete it and pay $100 for DVD2one and emulate it in VPC (or go buy a winblows box) and delete forty-two. Its not like your out anything but time
