DVD Ripper and File Transcoder.
Ravenc is a tool for copying a single video title from a DVD whilst transcoding it. The purpose of this is to make the video available to devices you may have which do not have a DVD player.
Altenatively you can transcode multimedia files on your filesystem.
Ravenc is designed to work with a clean DVD source like the ones you get on bought DVD disks. Ravenc was created because Acidrip is no longer being maintained and I found myself needing a DVD ripper.
The design of Ravenc was heavily influenced by Acidrip but has now significantly changed. Ravenc is, in fact, a simple front-end to avlib/avconv which is itself a front-end to some video encoding and decoding libraries. Everything that Ravenc does can be achieved from the command line, Ravenc just simplifies the process.
