Install Backlite DVD Video Backup Tool in Ubuntu

If you're looking for an easy to use DVD video backup tool that can be used in GNU/Linux then you might be interested in a utility called Backlite, which in fact is the "lighter" version of the k9copy actually. It's written in Qt and has the ability to backup both single layer and dual layer DVDs as well.

Main features...

*. Make ISO image files of your DVDs.

*. Add/Remove or skip copying subtitles or certain audio/video track before copying.

*. If you have k3b installed (if you use KDE then it comes by default) then Backlite also has the ability to burn the extracted data to DVD too.

*. With the help of Mencoder (MPlayer's excellent encoder!) it can convert the DVDs into MPEG-4 format as well...

These are just a few of its main features to name. Anyhow, if you use Ubuntu 11.04/10.10 or 10.04... you can easily install Backlite using the below command (using a third party PPA channel).
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/k9copy
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install backlite
