Description:

This is a small Kommander Script to create a GUI for dvdbackup.

I made it because it can be run on any platform with kommander installed and dvdbackup available (which may be more platforms than kdvdbackup or other binary frontends are available for)

This relies on:

dvdbackup
lidvdcss (optional)


There is a lot of room for improvement here. Feel free to spruce it up a bit and send me the new .kmdr file and i will update this.

- no more space character at the beginning of the disc name

- added more clear "progress" dialog.

Hi!

I am having problems finding the dvdrom under /dev/hda. When I click on "detect drives" the program only shows me /dev/hdb serveral times. But to read the DVD from there doesn't work.

What to do? :(

I'm not sure I know how to do this.

hopefully when I get some free time I can improve this a bit. I now know a way I can eliminate the need for some of the buttons and automate the process a little more. Stay tuned...

The easiest program I've ever used!
Download extract in konqueror and click.
Faster than any klik program and if you add a burn feature it could be better than k9copy.

no need for a burn option. Really I didn't do much of the work. dvdbackup does. All I made was this front end to it.

Anyhow, k3b is better for burning than anything I could ever make.
