"Simply inserting a DVD and running EZRip will scan the DVD and attempt a lookup of that DVD in our database. If not found it will rip as normal but if found it will rip all “interesting” tracks to proper names with its own directory structure ready for Freevo, Oxine, etc..

"The client portion (EZRip) wraps HandBrake which is the best extraction tool that I have found for Linux plus it really takes advantage of multiple cores which yields me up to 250fps when encoding. Once configured anyone can use it and has at least a partial command line interface for automated hands-free operation, including the automatic selection of a default language track and subtitle set. This last bit can be really handy with foreign films such as anime. Also included is the source for the back-end DVD metadata XML-RPC server and database."
