This is the second time I've tried to record a DVD for temporary storage on my hard drive, only to find VLC cuts out part way into the playback.
On the most recent DVD, it quit at the very same place twice.
Are there things on newer DVDs that are making it harder for VLC to record them?
VLC also has trouble getting going again next time I try to use it. The computer tells me "VLC just crashed".
After one or two attempts, it starts working normally again, but this is spooking me.
(And come to think of it, since these were unmonitored recordings, as I set up then walk away, it's possible VLC just can't play the two DVDs involved. If that's what's happening, how weird is that?)

I've not used VLC to record from DVD, but I think about possible reasons why this happens
- VLC make a video file with little or no compression, resulting a large file that grows faster than the harddrive can write.
- You tell VLC to compress the video file with a format that require too much CPU, so that the video stream doesn't get completely encoded.
Probable reason: copy protection, my guess is that libdvdcss can't optain the cryptography keys (not unheard of, goolge for 'Error cracking CSS key')
-> may be updating your vlc and libdvdcss helps
I'm having trouble trying to figure out why anyone would want to do this.
I read a report some time ago where changing the the error reporting to '>Verbose' stopped a crash occurring.
I can't remember which version had the bug, or how long ago it was. I am not sure if it's been fixed. Might be worth a shot.
Problem is just that libdvdcss isn't the best ripper.users currently on my ignore list: deadrats, Stears555
