Linux can usually get the job done when it comes to liberating optical bits, but it can take some doing.
I like abcde with the -p -U -V -x options.
- To retain original structure, dvdbackup with the -M option works.
- Playback in mplayer via dvd://1 -dvd-device path-to-hierarchy (see the mplayer FAQ)
- Errors ripping keys with libdvdcss might indicate a region mismatch; use regionset to perform a firmware modification
- Acquire libbluray from the VLC project
- Acquire MakeMKV for Linux's most recent edition
- 30-day shareware with binary blobs :/
- I went ahead and bought it -- it's worth it for $50.
- Acquire dumphd (currently version 0.6) from the debian multimedia repository
- Acquire aacskeys (currently version 1.4.0) from the debian multimedia repository
- Copy /usr/share/doc/aacskeys/ProcessingDeviceKeysSimple.txt to wherever you'll be running aacskeys. Yeah.
- This is $HOME/.dumphd/ for DumpHD.
- Acquire bdvmdbg (currently version 0.1.5) from the debian multimedia repository
- bdvmdbg does not work with the gcj JRE. Sun Java 6 works for me (didn't try openjdk).
- Ensure bdvmdbg, invoked by itself, successfully launches.
- Mount the disc as a UDF filesystem.
- It ought have directories like "AACS", "BDMV" and "CERTIFICATE"
- Launch dumphd.
- Click "browse" in the Source section. Select your mount point from above.
- Click "browse" in the Destination section. Select a target directory (it must already exist).
- Acquire ClownBD (currently version 0.79) for Windows
- It similarly requires BDVM
- I haven't played around with it much yet
