As per https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=379166 , K3B will complain about transcode not being installed, even when it is, when working with a DVD. This is due to the fact that looking for transcode was commented out while checking to see if it was found was not. The following patch uncomments the proper code and allows K3B to rip DVDs again:
