Ripping DVD and burning VCDs?

How do I rip a dvd I own to burn a vcd, for free, using my desktops cd burner. I have an old laptop and I want to be able to watch some Monty Python while I travel. No dvd-rom on the laptop. I run Win 98 on both machines. Any help would be appreciated greatly.

You need ~ 4 to 5 seperate programs to rip a DVD to SVCD/VCD.

You need at least 4.5GB of free space on your hard drive for the initial rip and some extra free time on your hands as it takes some time to do.

The programs are...

1) Ripper program to get the VOB files from the DVD to the hard drive

2) A program to do the frame serving like DVD2AVI

3) An audio program to resample the extracted audio file

4) A program to render the VCD, usually TMPGEnc

5) A program to cut up the final file to fit onto CD-Rs (if you choose to)

There are many programs that do these steps some are free some are share and some are demo.

I use a complete package I got from the newsgroups that works awesome, has a great guide on how to do it, works perfect every time. email me and I can hook you up

Check out gordian knot. I think it is mentioned at vcdhelp or at divx.com. It uses several different programs, but provides a single front end for the user, fairly easy to use and provides good quality tools.

Will his end result be a VCD that plays only on the computer, or would it work in a DVD player?

VCDs work in some DVD players, but not all of them. VCDHelp.com has a listing of most players and what they can play.

I'm told it does. I just do svcd cause takes no longer. The program uses tmpenc or cinemacraft for the video encoding. Tmpenc supports vcd so I'm sure you can do vcd in the program. The guide on doom9.org was very helpful. Shouldn't take you more then 5 minutes to get started and after that you should be able to have a movie going in under a minute. Once benefit to svcd besides quality is you can do multiple audio tracks (such as a commentary).
