The author stopped working on it because of (sadly in some points valid) dissapointment of linux desktops.

It's crashing for me too in KDE SC 4.6. I sent a backtrace to the developer, seems related to solid. Maybe it is caused by the transition of solid from HAL to udev.

think you're correct - have same issue with Audex and had it with K3b, but K3b developer(s) fixed it.

Hi !
Thank you for k9copy, an excellent tool!

In 2.3.5 I've got an problem with encoding to x264 (with mencoder and ffmpeg) and 2pass :
The error message is :
<
x264[error]:
requested bitrate is too low. estimated minimum is 8kbps

x264_encoder_open failed

FATAL : Cannot initialize video driver
>
I this a bug ?
1 Pass with exactly the same settings works fine.

k9copy is excellent, thanks.

When I encode DVDs (PAL) to xvid or x264, and leave "keep aspect ratio" checked, I always get 720x576 as resolution. For most DVDs (16:9 DVDs), I need to set 720x405 to make it right.

The files is shown fine in mplayer, because mplayer corrects the aspect to 16:9, but my Archos 5 internet tablet is more stupid and the file is skewed.

Am I missing something, or is it a bug?

Hi,
is there any way to encode files with a non-avi container ?
Is it possible to get the mencoder option "-of lavf" which means the container is selected from the file-extension ?
I found no way to encode files to any other container than avi.

By the way - in the actual version in the UI for setting up the encoders the mencoder cannot be selected - the dropdown has got the wrong text : "nmencoder" so at the moment there is no way to chance the encoding settings for mencoder.

I'd also love to have more options for the MKV format. I can't figure out how I might enable subtitles without actually having them displayed by default.

I love the 'remove menus' option in the Wizard, it's perfect for my backups!

It'd make things even easier if there were an option/check button that wasn't in the wizard so I could streamline the process! Perhaps under the 'DVD' section, you could have an 'always remove Menus' option?

Thanks for the excellent app!

Is there anyway to make it encoded regual video files?

Or is there a KDE app like this for that?

I have worked my way up to 2.3.1 after previous versions kept crashing for one reason or another. One reason still persists. When I open k9copy and choose .iso image as input method and choose the image then click open, crash. I have not yet tried other combinations of input/output yet except dvd to iso. When the backup progress was done k3b opened successfully but hung at 50%. The dvd did finish burning however. Strange. I am using ubuntu intrepid amd64.

I just switched from 1.2 to 2.3 (debian sid(ux)...) and i have to say that i could notice really nice improvements. nice to see a mature ripping program for kde :)
all i wanted to say: thanks!

I love this application. :) Been using it under KDE3 and now trying KDE4 version. When creating an MPEG4 avi the aspect ratio comes out different than the KDE3 version. The KDE3 version is perfect proportion as the original, but the KDE4 version is compressed slightly horizontally, not sure if this is the cropping or what, but I always keep preserve Aspect Ratio checked and use the same output width (720) as under the KDE3 version. Any suggestions? Thanks for great application.

thank you for the bug report. The bug will be fixed in the next release.
meantime, go in the codec definition (k9copy settings) and remove the crop and aspect options.

i have an updated Fedora 11 setup (KDE 4.2.4 and k9copy 2.3.2)

i get this issue (wrong aspect ration for divx/mpeg4-files), however different results in different players

in VLC and totem, everything looks FINE

in mplayer (in F11), Windows media player on another computer with another OS) and my newly acquired Nextbase sdv97-ac player, the aspect ratio is flawed

is there any other info i can assist with ?

apart from this problem k9copy seems to be an terrific application

Report

i could add that i am able to circumvent this by instead of checking the "keep aspect", manually setting a new vertical resolution, compliant with the 16:9-format fixes it for mplayer and WMP

or is it so that have i misunderstood the "keep aspect ratio" checkbox ?

all dvd set-top players support up to 448 AC3 bitrate. (some even support ac3's max bitrate of 640). could you increase the ac3 authoring bitrate maximum to 448?

No, thats wrong. k9copy can NOT rip more than one audiotrack as xvid. I was not talking about subtitles. And i was not talking about DVD - i was talking about XVID - and like all the other rippers and tools (like the crappy avidemux, acidrip etc.) it only supports ONE (!) audio track. So, back to a windows tool :(

If i am wrong then just tell me how to make a dual-language (NOT SUBTITLE) into a dual-language xvid ? Precise: german and english AC3 audiotracks + video -> xvid with two audiotracks ? Tell me ...

I re-tried it once more - selected both audiotracks and started encoding. I ended up with one videostream and one audiotrack (even the wrong one). So k2copy is just a joke :(

Thats really crap. I must use a windows software now to rip a dual-audio dvd. I betetr go complöetely back to windows since linux sucks at multimedia stuff like video and audio.

And another rip app that only supports ONE audiotrack for XviD ripping ... sigh.

Because i would like to rip english AND german track i must use a windows software because NO linux app can do more than one audio tracks.

Come on guys, thats ridiculous and stupid. Please make it possible to convert more tracks like Auto Gordian Knot (Windows) does. Is it that unusual that someone wants more than one language ?

this problem was there in 2,2 too

i dont know what package is involved(i think its ffmpeg) but i have this package in both /usr and in /usr/local

when i ran the config script i get:
-- Found library mpeg2: /usr/lib/libmpeg2.so
-- Found include mpeg2dec/mpeg2.h : /usr/include
-- Found include avcodec.h: /usr/include/libavcodec
-- Found library avcodec: /usr/lib/libavcodec.so
-- Found include avformat.h: /usr/include/libavformat
-- Found library avformat: /usr/lib/libavformat.so

showing that it uses the libraries from /usr

trying to compile and it fails with the following errors:

and the error msg goes on and on and on

removing /usr/local from path, pkgconfig and ldconfig didnt make any difference ..i have to rename /usr/local for make to pass

this bug was there in version 2.1.0 and still there in this new release(2.2.0)

k9copy does not honor the config option to clear output directory on exit

..i always have to go and manually delete the temporary folder after i close k9copy in the previous version and this surprisingly obvious oversight is still present

suggestion:
woudnt it also be better if k9copy only had one window?

the first window will allow the user to set what they want/dont want to be ripped, then it will change a window where it will show the video being ripped and then will finally change to the last window where the iso is burned

showing two windows when the user cant go the main one when another one is displayed is a waste of taskbar areas

It's nice app but I would be really happy, if your app will support saving in .mkv. It should support chapters etc.
