As Brad Midgley says, lsdvd and dvdinfo are your best bets. These
should tell you the titles on the disc. *Usually* the main feature is
title 1, so you can do:

    tablet-encode -p best dvd://1 myfilm.avi

I may well, at some point, do a Gtk+ GUI which shows DVD thumbnails
and chapter information to make this easier; but if anyone got there
before me, I'd be *very* happy to give them svn access to

Hope that helps,
