It is indeed possible to rip/transcode a dvd while doing other things. Once
started, that task runs in the background. Not sure about the slideshow,
never used that module. It may have the ability to play music while
displaying the slides. If not, make the suggestion to add a selectable
playlist to the slideshow. The authors are very active on this list and that
sounds like a great idea. :)
