Script to convert DVD image, device, or VIDEO_TS to mkv
iso2mkv is software for automated DVD to XviD/vorbis MKV video conversion. Gives almost total control on the process of video compression at maximum quality, while being simple and straightforward to use a kind of ‘life-hack’. The intended audience is advanced end-users and the script is not user-error-proof.
Based on mplayer, mencoder, oggenc or lame, and mkvmerge if not properly installed, won’t work. This is only a shell script that wraps the other programs. If you can watch the DVD with MPlayer, you can compress it with iso2mkv. Other used programs hopefully included in most GNU/Linux distributions as well a FreeBSD are basename, bc, nice, stat.
