    Rip TV DVD into avi or mp4/mkv FILES - not one BIG file


    Hi there
    I have a load of DVD's with classic TV episodes on them - the DVD's are broken down into the TV episodes. I'm getting away from physical DVD's now and want to store these on HDD's as playable streamable multi-media on a variety of devices including Android phone. The .ISO format won't play on Android phones.

    When I try and use something like HANDBRAKE to rip the DVD I always end up with ONE BIG file == is there any software around that will rip the DVD into Episode1.avi, Episode2.avi etc (or mk4/mp4).

    This normally isn't a problem if I'm ripping a MOVIE but for TV shows I'd like to keep the rip in the same style as the TV episodes.

    (Note I've already decrypted and de-regionized the DVD and it's mounted as a Virtual ISO that Windows can handle automatically).

    There just doesn't seem to be ANY software around that can do this easily -- it must be possible --you only have to look at the TV section of some torrent sites to see tha people DO manage to split the series up into episodes.

    Cheers

    Handbrake should allow you to use this (mine is an older version so not sure if things have changed)

    After you have inserted the disc and fired up Handbrake, have a look near the top left for a drop down labelled title, under this you should see all tracks on the disc

    select the first track, modify output settings if needed (remember to change the output name) and click add to queue
    repeat until done for all tracks
    click start

    Hi there
    Thanks

    Repped you -- it's not very intuitive if you aren't used to doing this but it works

    Cheers

    Glad it worked for you, thanks for the rep

    Took me a while to sort it out when I first saw it, sometimes the tracks are not obvious especially if you see more than you expect

    Little tip I learned if ever unsure about which tracks to rip, play the DVD on your computer and view which track it is playing, then use Handbrake on this track
