  • I keep getting the following error message when I try to crop detect certain DVDs:

    'AcidRip message - Crop detection failed, is the DVD loaded?'

    Why?
    Is there a solution?

    Thanks

     
    • same for me : "Crop detection failed, is the DVD loaded?"

       
    • The AcidRip update that fixed the compact window to show the rip in progress seems to have broken the auto-crop feature. It can't even crop DVD's it did previously, when the compact window didn't show progress...

      Hope this will be fixed soon... autocrop is more important to me than a progress window.. lol

       
    • There is a recent patch that fixes this but the problem is; I'm a newbie and I have no idea what to do with the patch file I downloaded. Help!

       
    • The way I fixed it is going into /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/AcidRip
      and editing the acidrip.pm file.

      I searched for this line

      if ( $_ =~ /crop area.*\s(crop=\d*:\d*:\d*:\d*)/ ) { $crop{$1}++ }

      and replaced it with

      if ( $_ =~ /crop area.*?\s(crop=\d*:\d*:\d*:\d*)/i ) { $crop{$1}++ }
