Thought about it.....but hadn't gotten there yet. I may try
that....thanks. 'Not something I've had to play with....yet. ;)
It is very easy to do, first find the starting point of the movie by
playing the dvd with:


| mplayer dvd://1


Most likely track 1 is the movie. If it is not, increase the number
until you find it. Now run:


| mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile <file_name> dvd://1


Substitute the number 1 if it is not the right track.


I have just tried that here with the Star Wars VI DVD and found
that does not show up anywhere else not in a full commercial DVD player or
with Kaffeine or Xine most strange have to check the rest of the
collection out see what else is hiding ..

'Doesn't work on all DVDs. This particular odd-ball from Disney is STILL
a "no go." Using mplayer doesn't get the beginning nor the end of the
movie. :(


I call several liberals friends. Fortunately I don't require my friends
to be intelligent or politically astute.
