Ripping subs from DVD ... to mpg?

Postby Taiwan_Student » 22 Jun 2012, 16:43

In the course of my teaching, I have to show movies from time to time. I already rip movies do to the region code thing. Heck I bought the #%##^$ movies...

I use an E-PC for convinced for its portability. It actually plays video file quite nicely in conjunction with the Projector. I don't want to buy a portable DVD drive since I'm trying to get away from carrying things....

I could 1. Mount the image file of the DVD and play it like a regular DVD.
2. Find away to rip the DVD subtitles and put it back into the video as an open caption. Option 2 would certainly in the form of an AVI file for instance would certainly save space.

I'm a newbe at this stuff so... please refer me to any good reference sources. Thanks.
