    Note that this is *unsupported beta software*. Don't even think of bothering SlySoft support if you have problems! If it works for you, fine. If it doesn't... well, write a note in this thread.

    This tool has most of the functionality of the full CloneDVD2 version, but without the GUI.
    Can be very, very helpful for automated ripping or debugging. It was originally developed for internal testing of Elaborate Bytes' libdvd, which is used by the AnyDVD ripper. As an internal tool, never intended to be released, it may have some "rough edges", e.g the option --silent isn't as silent as it should be...
    But as the engine is identical with CloneDVD / AnyDVD (I/O is similar to AnyDVD), it should function very well.

    Installation instructions:

    1.) Unzip to the directory, where AnyDVD or CloneDVD2 is already installed.

    2.) From the command prompt, type
    tcclone --help
    for the full command set. Remember to specify --remux, if you do not want to use the transcoder.

    Happy testing.

    Nice idea, but I don´t even give it a try, because I´m afraid of typing something wrong and then everything crashes!:bang:
    I know, what I´m talking about. Already tried it with several programs and it all ended with reinstalling the whole computer system!
    Obviously I´m too stupid for this stuff...:doh:
