This tool copies all required files for a movie title from a DVD on your harddisk for further processing with libdvdreads image mode (e.g. transcode). It automatically selects the title with longest duration - but you can also pick a specific one. The tool determines the correct title set (VTS-VOB files) for the selected title, clones the navigation information (IFO files) and extracts (decodes) the data into new video object streams.

Unzip the file and place it in your bin path. Make sure you have installed Perl! You need at least transcode version 0.6.0pre4 and of course cpvts.
You simply give a target directory (will be created automatically) insert a DVD and that's all:
You can then run transcode with the dvd import module (-x dvd) on this directory:
transcode -i MyMovie -x dvd ...
If your DVD device is not /dev/dvd or the DVD mount point is not /dvd then you must specify the following options:
cpdvd -d /dev/mydvddevice -m /my/dvd/mointpoint MyMovie
or set the DVD_MOUNT and DVD_DEV environment variables.
If you want to copy another title or the main title guess was wrong then you can pick a title with the -t option:
cpdvd -t 2 MyMovie
With the -i option you will receive information on all titles of a disc and the guess which title is the main title:
|-d <dev>||Set the DVD device||/dev/dvd|
|-m <mnt>||Set the DVD mount point||/dvd|
|-i||Print information on tracks only|
|-t <track>||Select a track. Overwrite autodetection|
|-c||Use the tccat tool of transcode for data transfer||cpvts|
|-v||Use vobcopy for data transfer|
|-f||Force an unmount of the DVD mount point|
|-n||Dummy mode. Only tell what you do.|
