Hi all,

Thoggen 0.7.0 has just been released. Get it from:


This release mostly fixes a bunch of bugs, but also allows you to rip
all audio streams instead of just one now.

What is Thoggen?

Thoggen is a DVD backup utility ("DVD ripper") for Linux, based on Gtk+
and GStreamer. It creates ogg/theora video files and features an
extremely intuitive and easy to use interface. Thoggen supports picture
cropping and resizing.

 Major Changes in v0.7.0

 * Fix problems with the aspect ratio of some

 * Ask before overwriting existing files

 * Use ffdeinterlace from gst-ffmpeg for
   deinterlacing if it is available; the
   quality is significantly better than
   with our own deinterlacer plugin.

 * Have desirable, but missing elements
   like ffdeinterlace, dtsdec or dvdlpcmdec
   installed automatically via GStreamer's
   codec-install mechanism; this will only
   work if the distro supports it (which
   currently means: ubuntu feisty, gutsy or
   hardy, or Fedora Core 8)

 * Allow ripping of all languages (Bram Neijt)

 * Don't hard-code output to 25fps, but use
   framerate specified in dvd headers, so that
   29.97fps is used for NTSC material.

 * Keep track of recently-used DVD .iso files
   and VIDEO_TS directories.

 * Use (higher quality) 4-tap method for scaling
   the picture if gst-plugins-base >= 0.10.17 is
