Obviously no one is ripping DVDs these days. I have just looked into the source of the current version of transcode, and it still has the offending line. I haven't bothered to apply my patch and see if the current build works, but I have no reason to believe it won't.

If anyone else comes against this issue, add the patch as a user patch then continue as normal.
