I seem to be having the same problem as others did a few pages back where ripbot appears to hang and do nothing after selecting a file. I've ripped my blu-ray Spiderwick Chronicles with AnyDVD. I then select the m2ts file and ripbot starts it's magic. It shows it demuxing video and then audio and even subtitles and then it just sits there and my only options are to abort or select another file. This process ran over night and nothing came up for me to select, specifically the blu-ray option. So, I started again before work and when I got home the same thing was going on--nothing.

I just put together a new machine especially for taking my blu-ray collection and converting them to avhc DVD's and now I'm stuck. It worked on my old machine, but 40 hours is way too long. Any ideas?

OK, nevermind, I figured out my problem. I recently re-installed my OS and copied the wrong plug-ins folder to my avisynth directory. One of the two I keep backed up causes avisynth to crash. Got it taken care of last night and the two pass encode was done when I got up this morning. Much faster than my 40 hours before.

Dont know why but now i get a stream error in the middle of the video, i preview the script in ripbot and its all k, all frames are there, also i can play the entire uncompressed video fine but when i render only half is the video, the rest this :

http://i286.photobucket.com/albums/ll105/juGGaKNot4cs/aaaaaaaaa00210918-48-35.jpg

i have RipBot264v1.10.6 with

Avisynth_257
latest matroska splitter
and ffdshow_beta5_rev2033_20080705_clsid

LE : problem solved BUT

The main reason why i had the problem was :

DENOISE!

I wanted to show someone that ripbot has this filter so i went there and i chose film, then anime, then NONE

after this 3 bad encodes, so i chose NONE again and i have no problem now.

this i think was the problem.

I have read most of this thread but haven't come across anyone else running into the same problem.

I am ripping BluRay to HD then using RB to "shrink" a 25GB+ movie to fit onto a 25GB single layer BD-R. RB does an excellent job re-encoding.

The problem is visible on all of my test encodes. Playback is not smooth. It looks as if it is dropping a single frame at regular intervals. This creates a very visible jerky playback in high motion scenes. I have tried several different RB configurations. CQ and 2-Pass yield the same results as far as rough playback. Everything else is perfect.

I would really appreciate some advice on this. This is the only problem that is preventing perfect backups.

What model do you have? Did you upgrade firmware? Could you also rip to DVD-DL (8150MB) or use lower bitrate something like 8192 kbps.

25th September 2008, 22:54
I have a Philips BDP9000 with upgraded firmware. It really does look like it's missing a frame or it's doing some unnecessary blend(?) during the re-encode. The skipping/framedrop is completely consistent and doesn't appear to be a buffer issue. If it means anything, retail discs that can be simply remuxed to 25GB BD-R play perfectly on this player. I never tried a DVD-DL

This is 1080p 1920X1080 (film) encoded in 2-pass, locked size of 22000 & bitrate upped from 30000 (def) to 40000 since 30000 caused severe artifacts.

I'm trying to convert mkv files to mp4 using Ripbot.

After I load the video into ripbot, I select subtitles->"+"->"subtitle_1.srt(in the temp/job1 folder)

I label it english, and I see that the preview is what it's supposed to be.

I proceed to convert to mp4, but the output file doesn't have any subtitles.

Any help?

Atak_Snajpera, you did a wonderful job with RipBot264! I've only recently discovered your conversion tool when looking for a nifty app that could convert anime fansubs to my iPhone 3G. It does the trick perfectly. Thank you, thank you! :) Long roadtrips aren't boring anymore.

im having the exact same issue, i realize the subtitles should be embedded into the mp4 but i cannot seem to get the subtitles to display, am i missing something here?, do i need to use a certain player in order to view subtitles? (currently using win media player). ive also noticed that the preview showing the content of the subtitles doesnt change if you have multiple jobs queued, for example if you set a job to encode, and then add a second job you can then see the two temporary "job" folders (job1, job2) if you then choose either folder the content of the subtitle seems to be the same, possible a bug i dunno?.

on another note i would just like to say a massive thanks to the author of this app, it really is fantastic!, standalone, reasonably quick and superb results, i couldnt be more impressed!.

cheers.

Question: Original sample should be in .m2ts so why did you remux that to transport stream????
The easiest way to rip Blu-Ray is:
1) install and execute AnyDVD HD
2) select any .m2ts file directly in RipBot264

provided sample plays smoothly on my PC . I tried both methods : decoding via FFDShow and graphic card (DXVA)

I ripped to HD first with AnyDVDHD. Then I opened RB. RB did the remuxing on it's own *shrug*. I have a bunch of rips on HD already. What's the steps when it's already ripped?

Hi,

I finally managed to encode it correct. Only problem I still have is that it takes too long. I have a AMD X2 3800+ and it takes 20 hours to encode the video. Is this nomal? I am Using 2Pass Encoding. This is slower I know.

2nd Problem: How can I add another Audiotrack? It only picks one Audio Track. Can I Mux it to the video afterwards?

Argh .. now the file is too big for a dvd9 :-( and its an mkv again :-(

If I do a 1pass encode which quality should I use to get a file with roundabout 7 gigs? Or isn't this possible to predict?

Hi Atak,

I would like to know, if i have an problem with sound encoded the the project with ripbot was done and have an audio bugs when bluray setting project has done.

Did i need to upgrade ffdshow with the latest CLSID version will correct the audio bug? The original mkv was okay i check it and my copy was not good.

Very nice GUI. Thanks for that.

Hopefully this wasn't ask bevor. I didn't find such a questiion via forum search and i denid to read 127 pages :D So please don't be angry if it is a FAQ:

Is it possible to implement an automatic interlace detection which can be switch on / off?
Maybe it is possible to implement a feature that allows to apply all settings including the AVS one's to a bunch of files? This might be usful to convert a set of DVB recodings which have all same quality, interlace and other settings.

At the moment i have here more the 30 Simpsons :D episodes and i have to apply all the settings to each of it to build my job queue for all of them.

automatic interlace detection would be easy to add (via MediaInfo for example) however from experience I know that it may cause some problems. I have few streams which are detected as interlace but in fact they are progressive (or progressive instead of interlace). That's why I prefer to just use my eyes.

I'll have to do some testing. It's very surprising that half the bitrate can be higher quality, especially if both are VBR.

I select main1.evo and ripbot will give you the option to select both files with chapters, audio and subs. It then will demux it and convert it with your options.

I did some test encodes with a few 5 minute or so clips. cq21 or cq22 tended to be much larger than 512 (in one case, cq22 was about the same size). In every case, quality was proportional to file size - bigger was better. I watched on PC, not on the Touch

Nope. Too many things depend on demuxed audio. File size , duration , number of channels and so on.

he new .7 version works flawlessly with no sync issues at all! Might have been the updated DGAVCDec or something else you did, it doesn't matter since its flawless now.

New DGAVCDec and new eac3to probably fixed your problems. I've just updated those tools :)

What? There is only one profile Level 4.0 HD . BluRay . Consoles . This is the most compatible profile which you can get for HD (DXVA , XBOX360 , PS3 , ... , BluRay)

I'm encoding HD DVDs. I don't want to encode with 2pass. I want to encode with 1pass. But which quality should I use? I used CQ 22. But the video file is only 600MB. I want the best Quality possible.
1920x1080@23.976fps squeezed into 600MB?!?!!? At CRF 22?!?!?!?! it's rather impossible. CRF22 should give you average bitrate around 12Mbps! You better show me Jobx_log.txt

It looks to me like the two (provided) BD profiles differ by Trellis and Bitrate, but I thought that creation of the BR structure onto a DVD-5 or -9 required bitrates of 20Mbps or less???

What? There is only one profile Level 4.0 HD . BluRay . Consoles . This is the most compatible profile which you can get for HD (DXVA , XBOX360 , PS3 , ... , BluRay)

that might be my fault the updater & installer dont delete the old profiles in the profiles folder do to concerns of people making customized settings in them..

So the option is always there to delete the extras manually... How ever profiles of the same name as the old ones they will over right them just for forward compatibility with later versions of ripbot... such as the comment about b-rdo being removed... Now as that I have not studied the effects of x.264 cmd line vs the profiles because of time restraints it gets a little frustrating having to pick and choose so I am deeply sorry...

With the .7 version i get fully in sync BD rips from my Disney BDs. But now I have started to recieve reboots with my Tvix 6500 player with the files created from Ripbot.

I have two tvix boxes with different firmware in them. One reboots with the files created and the other stutters heavily.

I am using the level 4.0 profile that I've allways used to create MKV files for my tvix from bluray discs. I have used both CQ mode and 2-pass but both creates files that my tvixes have problems with. Any idea where to start looking? The files playes OK on my PC with for instance videolan and coreavc so I have no clue where to start.

question : now output is AVC1 and not h.264

DXVA still works, just want to now why :)

also, is the x264 patched with x264_hrd_pulldown.09_interlace.diff ?

my footage is progresive, is there any way to remove this from the cfg ? should i remove it or if the footage is not interlaced is does not do anything ?

I have one small feature request.

If you select to resize to PSP resolution Ripbot264 always resizes to a vertival resolution of 270 and adds a border of 2 lines (eg. with a 4/3 video it resizes to 360*270 and adds borders in the vertical and horizontal direction). I hope you can change it to 272 and fill the vertical resolution fully (changing it by hand every time is annoying).
Example of an Ripbot avs file:
video=Spline36Resize(video,360,270).Sharpen(0.2).AddBorders(60,0,60,2)


In addition it would be great if it would resize 16:9 matierial to the full native resolution at 480*272 and not to 480*270 and 2 black lines because it is better compressible that way and the aspect ratio error will only be about 1,3% .

PSP always removes two bottom lines if resolution is 480x272!

Nope. Too many things depend on demuxed audio. File size , duration , number of channels and so on.


Ok, but i am using just "lock size" feature, so if i can set my settings before demuxing audio it would be great. You can just analyse the audio & video stream and then let me take my options!?!?

Please?!?!

I which programming language did you write this app?

Is it open source?

thanks

Did you have the same problem with previous version?

I have just redone the encode of the same BD with the .6 version and ran it through my both tvixes (whole movie). Works flawlessly apart from the audio sync problem. So this was introduced in the .7 version.

Just for fun I have now taken the dgavcdec from .7 and i'm using it in the .6 version and doing another encode to see if I get an in sync version that works with tvix. Sorry to say it did not fix the sync issues so it is something else that is the magic pill.

Sorry, didn't know that. And I just tested and it seems that x264 has no problem with such small borders, I could not see any difference or increase in filesize.

I've uninstalled & re-installed 1.10.7 and although I've had success in the past using x264 from the command line (in c:\program files\x264), with RipBot264 the process crashes (twice) when attempting to execute the x264 .cmd (once for each of 2 passes I presume). The only thing I note that's different, apart from that the cmds are attempting to execute from x264's subfolder, is that there's a dll in the x264 subfolder which I'd not seen before (maybe because I was using an older build of x264, I dunno). The dll is mentioned in the crash report.

hi i have been playing around with setting the default values for the video to 2-pass and settings the bitrate by defining this in the ini file, is it possible to set the bitrate for the audio as well using the ini file?, if not could this be added as a feature request :-).

cheers,

This thread is amazing, and it seems the application is too!
I have a question. I have a media server, and my standard method of ripping a dvd (movie only) to it has been less than sucessful lately, due to some wierdness in the dvd's.

I need to:
1 - rip the main title only (been using Anydvd + shrink for this)
2 - convert the file to a specific bitrate mpg.

I've been doing the transcode using VLC, but there is something odd happening. The VLC command line is quite straight forward... but somehow the single VOB created by shrink, while the right size, is not being seen correctly? middle of the movie missing sometimes, or even stopping 50 minutes in to a 2 hour movie...

start "Converting with VLC.EXE" /BelowNormal /b /wait %VLCPath% -vvv "%~1" --sout "#transcode{vcodec=mpgv,vb=7413,scale=1,width=720,height=400,fps=29.97,paddtop=40,paddbottom=40,acodec=mpga,ab=192,samplerate=48000,channels=2,equalizer-preamp=20}":standard{url="%~dpn1.DVD.mpeg"} --aspect-ratio=4:3 --sout-ffmpeg-keyint=16 --sout-ffmpeg-strict-rc vlc:quit


Can someone outline how I could accomplish my task using this program? OH, and are there other skins? I can't read the white on lightblue concept...

I encode a movie using RB and the "[ level 4.0 ] HD . BluRay . Consoles" profile, I have it set to 1-Pass with a CQ of 22. The filesize was larger than I expected so I tested it with some other programs. The video parameters of all the movies are 640x272, cq of 22, boarders are cropped. I used mediainfo on the video file when complete to verify the audio files are the same. Here are the files sizes with different tools.

RipBot264 = 950k
StaxRip = 591k
MeGui = 597k
Mpeg Mediator = 589k

I then took and made a iPhone Video with the same tools with a width of 480 and CQ=24 and size was roughly equal between all four programs. Size was about 445k

So I am thinking that something may be wrong with the "[ level 4.0 ] HD . BluRay . Consoles" profile.

Could you show me results with longer video( 60 min or more)

I have just redone the encode of the same BD with the .6 version and ran it through my both tvixes (whole movie). Works flawlessly apart from the audio sync problem. So this was introduced in the .7 version.

Just for fun I have now taken the dgavcdec from .7 and i'm using it in the .6 version and doing another encode to see if I get an in sync version that works with tvix. Sorry to say it did not fix the sync issues so it is something else that is the magic pill.
it will be fixed in next release. Regarding audio problem this should explain
Added: Demuxing process will be automatically repeated if eac3to generates .gaps files.

I changed the profile from:TrellisQuant=1 to TrellisQuant=0 and the filesize went to 662M; so it is getting closer.

Here is the x264 command from StaxRip. (I noticed that trellis=1 on this command line, so I don't think my change above was legit.)

UPDATE: I re-encoded a movie that I did with ribbot264 in Mid Aug. The filesize in Mid Aug was 514M (don't know what version of RB that was) and the same movies encoded with the latest RB is 797M. This is done with the same vob files. Both are CQ of 22 with resolution of 640x272; using the Console profile.

commit 173b40c276ee187de31ef630fd207a62de1b2cc7 r968
Author: Jason Garrett-Glaser <darkshikari@gmail.com>
Date: Sat Sep 13 14:03:12 2008 -0700

Move adaptive quantization to before ratecontrol, eliminate qcomp bias
This change improves VBV accuracy and improves bit distribution in CRF and 2pass.
Instead of being applied after ratecontrol, AQ becomes part of the complexity measure that ratecontrol uses.
This allows for modularity for changes to AQ; a new AQ algorithm can be introduced simply by introducing a new aq_mode and a corresponding if in adaptive_quant_frame.
This also allows quantizer field smoothing, since quantizers are calculated beofrehand rather during encoding.
Since there is no more reason for it, aq_mode 1 is removed. The new mode 1 is in a sense a merger of the old modes 1 and 2.
WARNING: This change redefines CRF when using AQ, so output bitrate for a given CRF may be significantly different from before this change!

I have been looking for something like this for a couple of months. I think it is excellent but do have a few small requests.

My computer does this very slow. Pass 1 is 4-5 fps speed. Pass 2 is less than 2 fps. I have it low priority but it would be good to be able to switch it off without having to start again.

Also, a pause button would be good so I can do other things then carry on.

The ability to select a single layer or double layer like in 2 pass mode but in 1 pass CQ mode.

I've uninstalled & re-installed 1.10.7 and although I've had success in the past using x264 from the command line (in c:\program files\x264), with RipBot264 the process crashes (twice) when attempting to execute the x264 .cmd (once for each of 2 passes I presume). The only thing I note that's different, apart from that the cmds are attempting to execute from x264's subfolder, is that there's a dll in the x264 subfolder which I'd not seen before (maybe because I was using an older build of x264, I dunno). The dll is mentioned in the crash report.

Yes I know this is a crappy post, and I need to do more t-shooting and provide better error reporting, but I'm hoping someone knows a simple answer, or something obvious for me to check. Are there for example some pre-requisite MS libraries I need to have installed for x264?

No one responded to me, and I've not been able to get 1.10.7 to work, but I installed 1.10.5 that I had here and it's working. So something about 1.10.7 doesn't like my P4 setup... :(

I encoded six movies with the latest version using CQ=22 and Console profile.

All six movies were 20 to 35% larger than the same movies encoded with the last version with the same settings. But it could be the movies I picked.

Through some testing I found that CQ=24 created a size result of approx the same as the old CQ=22. Anyone know how the quality would compare of today's CQ=24 vs the previous CQ=22. It is all about filesize vs quality.

I recommand you to select 2-Pass and lock size of you exportation. CQ = Constant Quality so it's normal that you will all the time oversize. Choose 2-Pass.

If you track is DTS or DTS-HD, set to this:
DVD5 4450
DVD9 8050
All my project done with DTS, DTS-HD oversize if you set 4470 and 8150.

8150.

No, I want to use CQ. My point is that a CQ=22 is a much larger filesize than a CQ=22 a few months ago. I want a good quality picture with a minimal filesize, I use to be happy with CQ=22 but now the filesize is bigger than it needs to be.

And my questions are:
> Is CQ=22 now a better picture than CQ=22 of a few months ago?
> And if I was happy with a CQ=22 before what value should I be using for CQ now.

Maybe this is a question I should be asking on the X264 forum.

Hi,

posted it already as a seperate topic but no answers.

I used RipBot264 to reencode my HDDVDs. But unfortunately it only supports 1 audiostream.

So I added a second ac3 stream (encoded it with eac3to) but neither PowerDVD nor my PS3 will recognise the second stream. But VLC will recognise and play it. I used the tsmuxer to add the stream.

did I do s.th. wrong? Maybe someone can help me.

Doesn't work in XP. It tries to go into hibernation but doesn't fully get there and is left with the hdd light going like mad. I had to switch the computer off and on again to get it working again.

I still think this is a amazing bit of software. I managed to get a 18GB Blu Ray down to fit on a single layer DVD with its DD 5.1 audio and it looked amazing even when shown at 80". I resized it down to 720p.

I found the Blu Ray to DVD software just too confusing and found this GUI to be a godsend. It is just a shame that the fps speed is slow on my pc spec. Would it be faster using dual or quad core?

Apart from a pause button which I could make use off. I thought of something else. How about the pc storing details of files put through Ripbot so when I open the same file it doesn't have to scan the file a second time. It can take 20 minutes to do it. It could go straight to demuxing the audio.

Right, and it is still changing in next builds. Search for DS comments about AQ.

Is CQ=22 now a better picture than CQ=22 of a few months ago?
What do you mean with "better"?! It's subjectiv, it uses another method to determine whats good. It preserves more noise and grain and so looks more natural than flatened and smoothed videos.

Maybe this is a question I should be asking on the X264 forum.
Yep, it isn't RipBot related, it's related to x264 development changes

I also tried a double layer version at 7.90GB but it stuttered(although the audio was ok and in sync). I think it has too high bitrate for AVCHD to cope although it is still only around 8Mbps.

Did yesterday and today on three systems 12 encodes together (each four): Source BluRay, Dest: 8.5GB DVD - AVCHD

All are Vista Ultimate 64bit, 8GB DDR2-1066, Q6600/Q6700 overclocked to 3.6 GHz and Raid5 with 4 Samsung 1TB HDDs.
No crashes, all encodes are fine.

UAC is disabled! (maybe a reason)
Maybe because 32bit? I doubt!
Maybe instable ram or mainboard? (not allways OC is reason for instable systems)

Sorry to report that the Tvix bug is not resolved in the .8 version. Same symptom as the .7 version. One tvix with older firmware reboots and the one with never firmware stutters severly.

The encode done from a Bluray disc and the funny thing is that the raw m2ts file plays fine on the tvixes.

I am now running an encode at 24000 maxbitrate (edited the cmd files ) to see if the problem persists.

Hello,

I have been trying to re-encode a file & RipBot gets through the 1st pass but just hangs afterwards...it will just say: Pass 1...
and never start Pass 2...this has happened while trying to re-encode a file that's like 8.25 GB in size & I'm trying to shrink to 7.95GB in Blu-ray structure to fit on a DL DVD...the video is H.264 (1920x1080, 23.976 fps) & the audio is DTS (768 kbps)
I've tried a .mkv, .ts, .m2ts extensions of the same file w/the same result...the files play fine in VLC, Nero Showtime & WMPC...I've been using RipBot 1.10.7 on a Vista Ultimate 64-bit system & haven't had any problems w/similar files...does anyone have any ideas what could be the problem?? Thanks in advance...

I have found that my crashing problem is owing to Atak's using a build of x264 for core2 computers, and then specifically it doesn't like the --nal-hrd option. If I use a build optimized for my P4 computer (found in this post (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1155803#post1155803)) then everything works!

EDIT: According to at least this post from Sharktooth (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1155803#post1155803) and this post from LoRd_MuldeR (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1194136#post1194136) using an x264 build made for core2 CPUs and above does not enhance speed and thus unnecessarily reduces compatibility.

Has anyone had any luck using Ripbot for the Popcorn Hour.

I select the Level 4.0 profile and cq22 and the resulting file won't play, when i select it ,it just goes back to the menu

On a side note i have questions about the cq 22

i did Baby Mama with cq22 and resized to 720x384 and the file ended up being only 750mb with a bitrate of 700 , does this seem correct.

i also tried Transformers HD at 1280x720 (just cut a 20 second clip to test) and the result is bitrate of around 5000 but when played on 50" tv it does not look that good

Backing up Blu-Ray movies w/RipBot almost 2mos now
started out using .4 ver migrated now -> new ver .8
done about 25 so far (9= BD-R / 16= BD9) almost ZERO problems **
Running dedicated VISTA-32bit machine-- Rip/Encode/Burn
Started out w/ E6600 CPU DualCore2 2.40ghz 4gig-DDR2-800mhz ECS-P965-MB
now using Q6600 QuadCore2 2.4ghz 4gig-DDR2-1066mhz P35-Gigabyte-MB
i have seen Encoding Times go from 22/28hrs--> 11/15hrs (BD-R 25g)
and Encoding Times go from 15/23hrs --> 8/11hrs (BD9 8.5g)
QuadCore is TWICE as FAST... i see the little CPU meter PEGGED @ 100%
newer RipBot ver .7-.8 the DeMuxing has dropped in Half 40-50min --> 20/25min

my Routine == 1920x1080p 24fps/NO Subtitles/5.1 AC3 640kbs/2-PASS
Started out doing the math...
TotalBitsBlankMedia/VideoRunTimeSec-640KbsAC3*94%(6%OverHead)= Projected Kbps
but RipBot interActive DropBoxes are so GOOD i now use them exclusively w/2-PASS
Check LockSizeTotalBox--HighLite and Enter 8170 (BD9= 8.5g DL) or 24000 (BD-R= 25g)
UnCheck LockSizeTotalBox--HighLite KBPS Adj#s until TotalBox =< 8175 or 24100
OverHead is running 3-3.5% = BD-R and 4% = BD9 (DVD+R DL)
early on testing Hunt for Red October --> BD9 i over calculated (math-method pushing envelope)
after 23hrs Encoding (E6600) i decided to BURN it anyway--Plays OK stops 20sec into Credits

RipBot 1.10.8 (AviSynth_257 / ffdShow_rev2156 / Haali Media Splitter 29032008)
** encountered problems
** Stopped during Encoding FFdShow Error message== changed -> ffdshow_2156
** Blue Screened 3times during Encoding== changed out OCZ PC6400 DDR2 for Corsair PC8500 DDR2

I have supread and suprip but doesn't work with the demuxed sup file. Suprip liked Blu Ray but it takes a long time to OCR as it can't do a line without quering something during the OCR.

I was hoping that the ripbot program automatically works with the evo file as it detects the subtitles. Why detect them if they cannot be used?

It CAN....

Subrip is great, its just rubbish for the first few mins of the film. Its LEARNING as you go so it needs less and less help as it goes. You will have to type the odd letter by about 30 mins in and by 45 mins it will pretty much do everything itself with maybe 2-3 more letters needed for the WHOLE 2nd half of the film...

I would hazard a guess that you haven't even tried to do the whole film with it and gave up after a few lines ;)

It took me about 5 mins each to do the jap version of "Ring" and its sequel\prequel - If you can't be bothered with that, I'd suggest not getting out of bed in the morning either. But I'm sure you weren't aware it gets easier :)

Ah ok, seems abit strange. Didn't mean to be rude before in my post hope it didn't come across like that :)

Maybe your disc is a one off, might be worth trying another just to see. I found that it worked much like speech recognition software\OCR software where it "learns". So if it comes across something you've already confirmed as being a certain letter it will remember it?

RipBot is a 32bit front end to multiple 32bit projects all it does is consolidate them to a simple solution for people who don't like to use a multi interface technique to encode a simple video stream...

It was made 32bit for compatibility for internal tools as well as external codecs. A 64 bit interface would not be smart for another good reason. Most ""buy it and your done"" PC's out there are running a 32bit windows xp/vista interface meaning with it being 32 bit it is compatible with all of those who wish to use it even people with 64 bit windows...


The Q6600 is possibly the best Intel processor for use with the x264 codec because it has a great instruction set that just flows like water...

As for windows 64bit The creator of ripbot runs vista 64bit and has not had any issue with speed or compatibility...

Thank you for making it.

How to deinterlace a normal 29.97fps NTSC DVD properly with ripbot264?

Choose both "deinterlace to 59.97fps (top field first)" and "decimate to 23.976fps" ?

I guess the AssumeFPS setting is not needed?

EDIT: I'm getting 49.750fps video after using the above settings. Is this normal?
If i use "deinterlace to 29.97fps (top field first)" with decimate, I get 23.976fps.

No, not reliably anyway.

If it was possible then people wouldn't use 2 pass encoding would they!

It *could* be implemented by encoding small portions of the movie at various points = predict final output size...

In fact you could do it yourself, cut up your movie into chunks and use common sense to get to the result.

Thank you for making it.

How to deinterlace a normal 29.97fps NTSC DVD properly with ripbot264?

Choose both "deinterlace to 59.97fps (top field first)" and "decimate to 23.976fps" ?

I guess the AssumeFPS setting is not needed?

EDIT: I'm getting 49.750fps video after using the above settings. Is this normal?
If i use "deinterlace to 29.97fps (top field first)" with decimate, I get 23.976fps.

As it should be... Although I would use top field first 29.97 Dec to 23.976 just to cut down on the number of frames and the size of the file.
You will not notice any difference in video quality...

The 59.97 frame De interlace setting is for HD and Bluray DVD's... DvD's In general will not have anything more then 30FPS...

:rolleyes:

No, not reliably anyway.

If it was possible then people wouldn't use 2 pass encoding would they!

It *could* be implemented by encoding small portions of the movie at various points = predict final output size...

In fact you could do it yourself, cut up your movie into chunks and use common sense to get to the result.

Ok, thanks.

Ok. I recently installed RipBot264v1.10.8 on my mates dual core AMD 4800 and a 2 pass re-code has taken 36 hrs overnight obviously.
Is this normal??? I understand that it may be compiled for Core 2 and not the AMD dual core CPUs but is this kind of speed to be expected?

If its taken that long, perhaps you can try faster encoding settings?

A couple of comments.

Has anyone had problems with no fast forward or rewind?

I created a m2ts file from a Blu Ray with the original video and one audio track. I did this through tsmuxer. I then ran it through ripbot using 2 passes and down to a single layer DVD. I then burn the BDMV folder to a DVD using Imgburn. I then play it in my Sony S350 as a AVCHD disc. Sound and picture is great. I can chapter back and forth but cannot fast forward or rewind. The screen just stays still until I press play again.

Is this ripbot causing this or something else? Is it because I am using a m2ts file rather than the complete ripped disc?

Also, using the same m2ts created file method (but different films) I have had it abort itself around 40% into the pass1 and creates a 600MB BDMV fodler and obviously corrupted as it doesn't do anything.

Yes, I wonder what settings are being used for a 36-hour encode, and how long is the video? I've got a 4-year old computer and encoding a 50 minute 720x1280 video takes about 16 hours using the built-in HD settings, 2-pass, 4000 kbps.

As for new feature requests, I guess I'd echo requests for a pause button, although I admit that it seems to work fine on my computer going in and out of hibernation in Windows XP. However, a pause button would be nice if I want the CPU to focus on something else temporarily.

Also, I wish the calculation of the estimated time remaining was based more on the recent encode speed, and not how much progress has been made from the beginning of the encode. If one hibernates in the middle of the encode, the ETA isn't even close to being correct afterwards.

All mine have been around 36 hours no matter what I do (10-12 hours pass 1 and 24 hours pass 2).

I have gone from a blu ray m2ts file at around 20-32GB and gone down to both a single sided and dual layer dvd.

I have done them all at 1280 x 720, 2 passes and 3500-4000ish kbps for single sided and 7000-8000ish for dual layer.

The longest I have done is transformers at 2 hours 25 minutes and get exception quality on a single sided 4.37GB.

What settings are you suggesting I messed up? RipBot is meant to keep it all simple for people who are a little lost in re-coding encoding but I am quite open to finding out what I have done wrong. All I did was a 2 pass, locked size to 4480 and did a copy stream for the DTS audio. Mind you that came out in Italian ;-) perhaps some extra settings would be good. Changing Matroska Splitter to only grab English audio didn't work so some other program must be extracting the audio track.

Still, I just came back to another failed 36 hr recode. My mate is laughing at the audio mis match for all that effort. Oh, 1 pass encode took over 12 hrs as well. Meh, I'm a noob.

First off, great program, many thanks and kudos to the author. :thanks:

Is it possible to skip the demuxing of audio that occurs after selecting the file to be encoded? I don't use audio from Ripbot at all.

Also, would it be possible to skip the muxing process after the encode? All I need is the .h264 file.

nwg
22nd October 2008, 12:42
I tried doing I,Robot with a audio track that I created from the DTS-HD MA. I wanted 768kbps DTS so created a m2ts file with that audio. It got up to 94% on pass 1, then started to mux and ended up with a 735MB file (instead of a 4.37GB). If I mess with the audio first, am I better of doing a video only m2ts and then mux the audio in a new file after encoding the new H264 video. It would solve my problem where is it finishing too early as it is now the fourth or fifth time it has done it.

More control on what steps the program does would be good. A fully auto and a manual mode would be great. Perhaps have a tick box in the settings somewhere on what processes the program does or not do.

This program has served me well last 6 months or so...

The 1 feature I would love....would be XVID support :)

Reason being is that this h264 on the Xbox 360 is great for 2 channel audio soruces, especially interlaced DVDs that are encoded at 50fps (so you can maintain the smooth motion) and 50fps video play great on the 360...

However for 5.1 movies, the Xbox 360 only supports 2 channel AAC audio...But it supports 5.1 DD with XVID...

Just wondering if it would be difficult to implement a profile for that or if you have any intention :)

(Had enough of using Fair Use Wizard)

Thanks for any heads up, and again as I've posted a couple of times already...Thanks for a front end :)

It would be good to be able to select H264 video files. I am trying Ripbot with just a video file (to mux a ac3 file afterwards). I had to go from a H264 video file to a mt2ts file which it makes a H264 file and back to a m2ts file.

I echo the 'pause' request, too. Sadly, Windoze has no "Suspend Task" functionality, like UNIX has (Ctrl-Z). Ideally, Ripbot could save its current state of progress, be closed even, and pick up where it left off the next time you start it. I often am transcoding for >32 hours. Ideally, you'd use your machine during the day for the stuff you usually use it for, and have it transcode/recode at night time.

I've been able to obtain this sort of functionality using a freeware utility named "BES - Battle Encoder Shirase 1.3.7". This allows you to target a process (in this case, x264.exe) and throttle down the CPU it demands anywhere from 0 to 100%. If I'm in no hurry, I will sometimes just throttle it down so the CPU doesn't have to run at 100% and the CPU fans don't have to run as fast.

@Dark Shikari : Since you are very much more knowledgeble in X264 then most could you please give me a hand?

With the [ level 4.0 ] HD . BluRay . Consoles profile in the .8 version of ripbot ( please see below ) it produces files that are not compatible with the Tvix media players if I encode a Bluray disc and I am trying to find out what to change in the profile to eliviate this problem. In MeGui the x264_dp_ Standalone-PS3-Xbox360 profile works like a charm but translating between that profile and Ripbots is more then I can manage. The tvix will reboot or stutter heavily as symptoms.

I've tried reducing the buffersize and maxbitrate to the levels in the megui profile but that did not fix the problem. Any other hints I should try to change in the ripbot profile?

[x264settings]
DeblockingStrength=0
DeblockingSensitivity=0
AdaptQuant=1
MotionEstimationAlgorithm=3 - UMH
SubpixelRefinement=7 - RD on all frames
I4X4=1

The easiest way would ofcourse to start using MeGui instead but Ripbot is so much more on par with my encoding skills from a user perspective.

I also observed some playback problems (picture freezing) on my Popcorn Hour using the current RipBot HD profile. This is hardly scientific, but I took a look at the MeGui P3-XBOX360 profile, and made some changes to the RipBot HD profile based on that and the freezing went away. I think the changes I made were: turn off B-Pyramid, turn off Trellis, turn off P4x4, lower buffer and max bitrate to 20000, lower subme to 6. The encoding process is too long to figure out which one of these made the difference, and for all I know simply reencoding with no changes in the profile may have solved the problem!

Taking away the Bpyramid and P4x4 will create a file that is able to run without problems on the latest Tvix beta firmware but it still reboots the last stable firmware release ( I have two tvix boxes ). I thought I would give Subme 6 ( since that is the level in the working megui profile ) a go as well to see if I can get a working file that also works with the stable firmware.

Thanks for your assistance so far!

Again, subme can't have an influence on hardware compatibility. subme 6 or 7 are a good compromise between speed and quality in my opinion.

How can I set set the '--keyint' and '--min-keyint' parameters in the RipBot264 profiles?Dunno how to set in RB's profiles, but before you click "Start" (after selecting all other options for a job) you can manually edit the Pass1 and Pass2 .cmd files. Atak has expressed some discomfort ;) with users making such changes of course! But it works, and I like to use MeGUI x264 command lines in the RipBot program, because Atak's transparent bitrate calculator is outstanding. :)

If RipBot264 had a more complete x264 profile, and then had an option to pause before the tsMuxeR final step (to allow editing of the .meta file), It'd be perfect. Oh, I found it doesn't always interpret MPEG2 Blu-rays properly i.e. doesn't invoke DGindex as it should. And it uses a build of x264 my P4 doesn't like. But other than that... :p

Dear collegues, thanks for helping me tracking down how to make a profile that is safe for the Tvix HD-M6500/M7000 players. I have now after the last encode been able to produce a videofile that plays without either rebooting or stuttering the player. It also works like a charm on my Popcorn Hour A100 player.

The last thing that needed to get a working profile was to back down to Subme 6 from 7 that the new Ripbot uses. The old version .6 of Ripbot used Subme 6 and that one allways worked. I am aware that Nurbs says that this one can't have an impact but for some reason it does on the tvix. Below you can see the functioning profile. Please use it if you want to. The bitrate can be 30000 and still work but I am using a slightly less value just to keep everything on the safe side.

Once again, thanks for your efforts! I am now a very happy encoder that can take all my Bluray discs and put on the network so that my family gets a jukebox with great quality.

Sorry for giving bad advice, but that's very strange. Subme is an analysis option and while it obviously changes the written bitstream it shouldn't change it in any way that causes incompatibility. Maybe, if you feel like it, you could inform the manufacturer of the tvix about that problem.

I don't get it. How are you gonna interrupt RipBot264 exactly in-between two jobs? Once it's done with the first, it immediately proceeds to the second (which is good, btw).

Or are you saying you could actually interrupt the current job, and with 'delete temp files' ticked off, that RipBot264 will pick up where it left off? That would be fantastic!

Hmm, I wonder why Atak did this? According to wikipedia, there's some sizeable max bitrate differences between the two levels:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264

4 = 20 Mbit/s 25 Mbit/s 60 Mbit/s 80 Mbit/s
4.1 = 50 Mbit/s 50 Mbit/s 150 Mbit/s 200 Mbit/s

Etc. Also, who cares whether Mr. Tuvix can't handle 4.1? Or a PSP? Why should that affect my Blu-Ray profile?

Well, I wouldn't know about size problems. I always set it to CRF=18, MotionEstimationAlgorithm=4 - ESA, and SubpixelRefinement=7; so the output is comparatively large (and non-predetermined). But I certainly didn't get garbage when recoding.

I only have a message "Conversion is complete" it takes 500 ms to make the entire HD movie... When i preview the script it works, ripbot shows me the video so i really don't understand the thing :s

I reinstall FFDShow and halli media splitter , try different versions of Ripbot264, always the same thing. Impossible to encode :'(. Please help :thanks::thanks:

Is it with RipBot264 possible to create a mp4 file that is compatible with the iPhone that:

- has multiple selectable subtitles which can be turned on/off in the iPhone (.srt input)
- has chapters (with names)

If not, are you planning on making this functionality? Thanks mate.
