I have lot of movies on VideoCD that i bought just to have in my collection and are still fun to watch, but DVD drive on my laptop computer many years ago was switched to second HDD caddy. Only way to play them is using external USB DVD drive with is problematic to carry around:) Is there option to easy “RIP” copy VideoCD disc into video file for easy playback?
Yes… on Ubuntu and many other distributions is easy as one command.
where /dev/sr0 is our drive, in my case external USB drive
after running that command, we get extracted all .avi files that can be played from HDD using for example VLC player.
