Transmageddon 1.0 – Ubuntu 14.04 DVD Rip and Video Transcoder

Transmageddon 1.0, Video Transcoding Software for Ubuntu 14.04  is can now do DVD Rip. It uses Gstreamer for doing Video Transcoding in Ubuntu. The latest release comes with some exiting features.

  • Support files with multiple audio streams, allowing you to transcode them to different codecs or drop them from the new file
  • DVD ripping support. So know you can use your movie DVDs as input in Transmageddon, be aware though that you need to install things like lsdvd and the GStreamer dvdread plugin from gst-plugins-ugly for it to become available. And you probably also want libdvdcss installed to be able to transcode most movie DVDs.
  • Another small feature of the release is that you can now set language information on files with one audio stream inside. I hope to extend this to also work with files that have multiple audio streams. If you rip a DVD with multiple audio streams Transmageddon will preserve the existing audio information, so in that case you shouldn’t need to set the language metadata manually.
  • Enabled VP9 support in the code.


Transmageddon 1.0 will not be available for Ubuntu versions older than 14.04.
