Yesterday i went to a Thrift store (recyclestore, 2nd hands goods) i bought 5 dvds for 1.50 euro total there (around 1 dollar i guess,. for all 5 combined). I tried ripping these DVDś at home with use of AcidRip , Handbrake and DVDRip in linux Xubuntu 18.04 LTS, On several different computers in my home, 2 desktops and a laptop. the DVDs are
Taxi 1 , 2 ,3 Daylight Robbery and The day the Earth stood still.
I could only rip Daylight Robbery in the normal way as should with Either Handbrake or Acidrip. I did not try DVDRip on this title. Now, all other DVDs cannot be ripped, the result is a distorted video playback or none at all. I tried all combinations with the above 3 rippers, nothing worked. during ripping either the ripping program crashes or goes extremely slow 700 minutes for 700 mb, and resulting in a corrupt video file. I cannot play the remaining 4 DVDś with VLC Linux (xubuntu), What happens is that VLC Crashes, or stops playback. Their regioncodes are 2, its my region, and as all dvds i have. this should not be the cause of the problem. right ? Now i looked on the back of these movieboxes, and there it says with 3 from 4 DVD-9. The remaining one says DVD-5, and the working one, Daylight Robbery also DVD-5. Can it be that my dvd drives cannot read DVD-9 format ? or rip it ? Is this Encrypted ? Are these DVDs protected ? Now comes the weird part; i tried the 4 not rippable, corrupted video output at playback DVDs in my Xbox One, and they simply worked. so i could view them.
What is going on here ?
i have different DVD+r/DVD+rw drives in my computers, but i never had this problem. a couple of years ago i had converted all of my 60 or 70 dvd collection to mp4. with those same pcs. this never made me have any problem with a disc, dvd or any protection ....
I was not going to do anything illegal with the copies though i was going to make,only for backup and for use with my mediaplayer, for comfort viewing.
can anyone tell me what is going on here
