I have a ibook G4 that I would like to give to my brother. He watches some of my old rescue hereos dvds. I would like to rip them on to the ibook as a .dvdmedia So He can double click and watch. I have found one that does this, its called rip it but it only has ten free trys. Is there another simple dvd ripper like it or am I just out of luck with the mac ppc processor. Google has failed me with lots of free trails and junk. Thanks a bunch.

I would have suggested MakeMKV but that's x86 only :(

OSEx will work, but it's a bit tricky. My suggestion would be to just buy RipIt.

I use mactheripper on my Powermac G4, and it it free.

Are you using the original HDD? If you are, it will not hold many movies.

AFAICR .dvdmedia is just the folder containing AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS, with a name and ".dvdmedia" extension.

yep, you need the ppc 32 bit version of vlc to use handbrake...
do a search for vlc ppc 32 bit... on google id recon.

cheers

Handbrake plus previous version of VLC works great. The new VLC is 64 bit and will not work with the Handbrake for PowerPC Macs.

Maybe because that's not what the OP asked for...? They said they wanted to rip DVDs (which they're already doing), not encode them.

What settings are you using for OSEx ?

Open up 0SEx. Under Ti[tle] select the title you want. If its the main feature, it'll be the long one. Under Ch[apter] select the chapters you want. Usually it is all of them, unless there are short little ones at the end; deselect those. Under An[gle] Select the first angle (If there are more than one). Under Vid[eo] select the 1st, if there are more than one. Under Audio, select the English surround sound .ac3 track. (Unless you want some other language/sampling. But... Be Careful!! Many times, the 2ch sound for English is directors commentary) Under Fmt (Format) select Elementary Streams, and under Seg[ment] choose title. Click begin, select a destination with plenty of HD space, and let it sit for about 30 minutes working its magic.

I have been using this program exclusively for years on both my PowerPC and Intel Macs. Rarely have issues, but I do sometimes have to tweak the settings from what is outlined here.

Best thing for you to do that will also perform very well on the iBook is use hardbrake to rip the DVD's to DivX. Any mid range quality setting will be fine. I have never seen a DivX file that won't play even on a G4 500.

What MHz is the iBook BTW?

!.2GHz, Could I use mtr than create a file with a .dvdmedia extentioion to put the vieo and audio ts folders in? Will this work?

I run OSEx under Snow Leopard with no issues. Are there any crash logs?

No. They asked if they needed a converter to get VOB in DVDMEDIA. This is entirely different from encoding content with a different codec.

!.2GHz, Could I use mtr than create a file with a .dvdmedia extentioion to put the vieo and audio ts folders in? Will this work?
I believe MTR spits out a VIDEO_TS folder, so you just need to add an empty AUDIO_TS folder inside and name the folder that V/TS and A/TS are in to 'folder_name.dvdmedia'.
