  1. This is a woefully incomplete look at the present state of affairs on Ubuntu 10.04 regarding media ripping and transcoding. First of all, AcidRip is incapable of transcoding on an standard 10.04 installation. It will rip, but transcoding to something useful like AC3 passthrough with H.264, or any other format it offers for that matter, will only give errors. Transmageddon is ok if you’re just transcoding between formats that have been downloaded, but forget anything custom. It just sits there doing nothing and gives zero feedback as to what it purports to be doing. AviDemux is the best choice by far, which is saying a lot for Linux. If wont be able to rip and transcode into a format that is usable on an xbox360 but for PC playback it does a fine job. Everything else I have tried in the default repository was literally a complete waste of my time. Thus, presently, ripping and transcoding on Ubuntu really can only be recommended to those with adequate programming knowledge so as to troubleshoot why the process fails. Which is fine if you’ve got the time, but not everyone does. As much as I avoid using windows, for media ripping/transcoding this is really the only option; for the sole reason that *it actually works*. If you’re a Linux-only user, this is no problem: you may have luck getting apps like DVDFab or DVDShrink to work with wine, but if not then you always have the option of running windows as an app within Ubuntu as a virtual machine. Or as a last resort you can dual-boot 😉 Good luck and sorry for the gloomy reality check 🙁
