If you're willing to try non-mplayer/ffmpeg ways, you could give thoggen 0.1 a 
shot, which I've just released. Thoggen is a DVD ripper that produces 
ogg/theora files as output, based on the GStreamer framework and Gtk+. More 
info here:


This is the very first release, it's alpha software, and it's extremely slow 
for various reasons, but it works fine for me, so with a bit of luck it might 
just work fine for you as well. No promises though.
