For those of you who own DVD’s and want to be able to watch them on your computer without always having to carry a disk around with you, DVD ripping is for you. The best DVD ripper I see on the market today is Handbrake. With Handbrake you have the ability to burn to many formats and also convert other video files to different formats. Handbrake is not In the repositories, however the websites download link takes you to a Launchpad ppa page. or for even more geek-cred download from their git-hub repo. The tool is GNU licensed and installs fine. there is both a Graphical version and a CLI version.
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases

For cli version use:
sudo apt-get install handbrake-cli
