OGMRip is an open source, cross-platform and freely downloadable graphical application implemented in C/GTK+ and designed from the offset to be used for encoding and ripping DVD-Video discs to AVI or OGM video files, using a wide variety of A/V (audio/video) codecs.
Offers a GNOME HIG-compliant interface
With its clean and HIG-compliant GNOME user interface, OGMRip aims to be as minimalistic as possible, while still being powerful enough to capture user's attention and become the main DVD ripping utility.
Supports numerous video and audio codecs
In technical words, OGMRip transcodes video streams from DVDs or VOB files and outputs AVI, MKV, OGM or MP4 video files. It supports numerous video and audio codecs, including AC3, MP3, DTS, Vorbis, PCM, AAC, XviD, Lavc, x264, Theora, etc.
Comes with dozens of attractive features
OGMRip can also determine the video bit rate for a given file, automatically detects scaling factors and cropping parameters, supports multiple subtitles and audio streams encoding, extracts subtitles in VobSub or SRT formats, rips continuous chapters, supports external subtitles and audio tracks, and much more.
Under the hood
Taking a look under the hood of the OGMRip application, we can notice that is has been written entirely in the C programming language, which means it is very fast and low on resources, and uses the cross-platform GTK+ GUI toolkit for its HIG (Human Interface Guidelines) compliant graphical user interface.
Runs on GNU/Linux and FreeBSD
While the software runs on all GNU/Linux operating systems, officially supported on Arch Linux, Gentoo, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, and Salix, it can also be used on FreeBSD. OGMRip has been successfully tested on computers supporting either of the 32-bit and 64-bit CPU architectures. Detailed informations about its runtime dependencies are provided on the project’s official website (see link below).
