@atak

why is there stuff about downmixing and resampling audio in the avs script when I select copy audio? I know something is happening with the audio cause I usually select Cut but is it actually re-encoding the audio? I don't want to re-encode a lossy format, I want to preserve the quality of the original ripped audio track.

Also, is there any way you could add support for unicode .srt files? I currently have to convert my subs from unicode produced .srt files output from suprip to ansi. not that big of a deal except that there are certain special characters i loose when doing that...like the music symbols that are in some subtitles (like eastern promises has them a lot.) What settings are being used in tsMuxer for subs? (Font, size, offset.) Is there a way for me to specify those settings used?

Atak et al,

Is there a way to preserve the DTS or Dolby Digital HD Audio? I am using a TVIX HD-6500 and it supports the HD audio so would like to select an option to avoid the downmix...

Please advise and many thanks!

what does the error message
Couldn't open input file in HIDE mode! Exiting.
mean???Something wrong with source. Open .vob in DGIndex and see what's happening.hm what should happen? anything I should set in DGIndex?
I opened it and saved it into project .d2v without change any settings, but what next?
Ripbot can't read d2v file.

Using newest version, v1.12

Thank you.

I've been having some problems creating a proper encode of Underworld Evolution from bluray. The bluray says the movie has a 2.40:1 AR which is displayed in the .ts that I created when I ripped the movie. However, once I load the .ts into ripbot and try to crop the borders automatically, ripbot overcrops. I've always used 'crop automatically' and have never had a problem yet. I suppose there's a first for everything.

I tried cropping manually by going back and forth between the preview and ripbot, but at some point the preview stops showing the cropping changes.

Originally I thought that the bluray was incorrect with the AR and trusted ripbot's analysis. However, once I looked at the mkv, the video seemed squished (--> <--) horizontally. I also looked the credits and they were not centred. Instead, they were more towards the bottom-right corner.

I will attach a sample of the original .ts and the final .mkv as soon as mediafire have completed their server maintenance. I have attached .jpg's of the problem I encountered. autocrop.jpg shows what ripbot automatically crops the movie to and autocrop.preview.jpg shows what the automatic crop looks like in terms of the video.

Hopefully someone can help me out. Thanks.

Edit: I'm using v1.12.0. nocrop.preview.jpg shows what the movie looks like without cropping.

Edit2: http://www.mediafire.com/file/t2qmjzkxnzi/ue.master.clip.ts

1st clip is the disc rip in a .ts and the 2nd is the test encode I did.

if your source is 2.40 then correct crop values will be TOP=140 , BOTTOM=140

1920 / 2.4 = 800
1080 - 800 = 280
280 / 2 = 140

AutoCrop may not work well with dark movies therefore I added Manual crop.

Hello,


I just recently moved from Vista Ultimate 64-bit to Windows 7 64-Bit...I also updated my copy of RipBot from 1.11.5 to 1.12.0...prior to the update, everything worked correctly but since the update, I can't see a preview in wmp classic...the encodes still work, but when I attempt to preview them, I get: Cannot render file...using 1080p files or 720p...mostly using .mkv files (occasionally .ts or .m2ts files) all w/DTS or 5.1DD audio...I'm using a i7 920 quad core cpu w/6 GB of triple channel memory, if that helps...I believe its a codec issue, just not sure how to fix it...the research I did, it was suggested to install the K-lite codec pack (which I know I don't want to do using RipBot)
Please help!! I updated RipBot & went to Windows 7 w/in 48 hours of each other so I'm not sure where the problem lies...anyone else having any similiar issues?? Thanks

Thank you for the advice. I uninstalled Avisynth & ffdshow then re-installed them...using the newest build of Avisynth & for ffdshow, I'm trying the rev 2605, I read that it's supposed work well w/a fast cpu. I have a i7 Quad Core so I should be good w/that. After reinstalling these, I'm able to get the preview showing in WMP Classic. Now, my problem is the audio is out of sync when playing the preview. If I play the files in Nero Showtime, it plays in sync. Does anyone know what could cause this?? Thanks again for the help, it's much appreciated...

That's what I installed, rev 2605 20090110 xxl mt
...I was using rev 2615 20090112 clsid but read that the mt version would give increased performance (speed) when encoding...you had mentioned getting like (correct me if I'm wrong) like 80 fps, is that right? That's amazing, I'm lucky to hit the high 30s during the 1st pass...I had an AMD FX-60 before I rebuilt my main PC (mainly to speed up my encodes) & I can do 3-4 jobs @ 1080p w/either DTS or AC3 (8150MB) in the time it would take me to do 1 on my older rig...if you have any suggestions what I can do to increase the speed, please let me know...thanks for all your hard work, Atak!!

I just tried Ripbot264 version 1.12.0 on Window 7. It told me I needed to install Splitter and ffdshow which I did. But when I add a video it does not index, it just sits there. No errors, it just does not index or return. The filename does not show up in the Video text box and no entry is in the status bar.

I did have the old version running on WinXP.


UPDATE====================================

I went into Ripbot264.ini and changed the DefaultOutputPath and StoreTempFilesin to point to locations that I knew Win7 could read and write to and then it started working properly.

Just in case others have the same problem.

What is missing from the first posting is what you do with the file after it has been downloaded.

There must be others like me who have never run across whatever was used the "compress" this executable.

Simple instructions would be nice.

BTW, Google searching came up empty (at least there was nothing in the list that indicted that it was instructions).

EDIT: Found it. It would still be nice to reference that 7zip is used to compress the file. Never heard of it before.

Atak..I sorta found a bug...maybe..

I'm using the latest version..1.12.0.

I'm encoding some clips for my Walkman. which only plays Baseline L@1.3 files.

If I use CQ 22 (or any other number)...the file worked fine.
But if I use the 2pass mode...it won't work. So I decided to check why...

Upon checking with Avinaptic...I found out that by using 2pass mode, the file generated uses Baseline L@4.1 when I check with Avinaptic...Here's the data generated by Avinaptic

SPS id: 0
Profile: Baseline@L4.1 NOTICE THIs LINE
Num ref frames: 1
Aspect ratio: Square pixels
Chroma format idc: YUV 4:2:0
PPS id: 0 (SPS: 0)
Entropy coding type: CAVLC
Weighted prediction: No
Weighted bipred idc: No
8x8dct: No

[ Profile compliancy ]

Profile to check: MTK PAL 6000
Resolution: Ok
Framerate: Ok
Warning: If you need a more complete report, then click on "DRF analysis"

This report was created by AVInaptic (http://fsinapsi.altervista.org) (18-11-2007) on 18 gen 2009, h 02:08:12

It's be great if this can be fixed as I'm trying to encode several file and I need it to be of specific size rather than quality.

p/s: If I use the CQ mode the data generated by Avinaptic is correct. Baseline@L1.3

I thought I had created a simple Blu-ray DVD-ROM, but when I went to play it, the Sony Blu-Ray player said that it couldn't.

The source file was a short 35 second MPEG-2 transport stream video with MP2 audio.

I noticed that the .m2ts file was 93MB, which is wrong, as it should be a lot smaller and H.264. That seems to be a MPEG-2 compression of the original MPEG-2 file (200MB @ 37Mbps). How do I make it do H.264 for AVCHD?

After the .bluray folder was created, I just burned the contents of that folder onto a DVD (which contained two folders). Is that not correct?

If I have a MKV file that contains H.264 video and MP2 audio, how to I get RipBot264 to just take the H.264 video that has already been encoded and create a Blu-ray compatible AVCHD DVD, without re-encoding the video?

The audio can be re-encoded from MP2 to AAC. I don't want to re-encode the video.

The best way is to remux the cut movie with tsmuxer first - you can cut the movie to any length you want - then add the cut movie into ripbobt. Downside is that ripbot will sometimes then produce an OOS sound especially if the original movie files are multiple joined or if sound is trusound.

someone suggest me this to extract the "TRUE-HD" audio track:
eac3to X:\ where X is the letter of your blu-ray/hddvd drive

eac3to will provide you with a list of playlists from the disc.
Find under which section the truehd audio track you are looking for is ( 1), 2), etc.) and
then add that to the command line you typed before. So it should look like:

eac3to X:\ #) where # is the number of the playlist

Once that command is entered it will show you something like this:

1: chapters
2: video track
3: video/audio track
etc.

Find which number corresponds to the audio track you're looking for. The command line will look like this now:

eac3to X:\ #) *: "audioTrack.thd" where *= track number; audiotrack = the directory where you're saving the
truehd audio file and .thd is the file type.

Once you have both the video and audio track, load the video track into tsmuxer,
hit append and load the audio track. Make sure both tracks are selected in the check box area
and then you can save the file with both video and audio.

All of what I've written here is demonstrated visually near the end of the "How-To-Use" page
of the eac3to wikibook located here:
http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Eac3to/How_to_Use.

i do it.
Now i have a file (1.2GB) named "audioTrack.thd".
I try to load it into tsmuxer but it wont load, it say "Can't detect stream type..."

what i did wrong???

blackwalker....first off extract everything with eac3to..the video, audio and subtitle track. 2nd, where you went wrong is you extracted the truehd track as a truehd track, which is still the same issue of tsmuxer not being able to accept a truehd track. When you extract the audio track, name the extension as .ac3 and it will just pull out the core of the truehd track. Don't just rename the already extracted truehd track you have. You need to do it again. Let me do an example.

Lets say your file is called movie.m2ts (by the way I dont know why you just have the one m2ts file...a movie isn't always stored in one of those files...sometimes is spans multiple m2ts files.)

So, you do a command on that file like : eac3to movie.m2ts

Eac3to will list something like the following :

M2TS, 1 video track, 3 audio tracks, 8 subtitle tracks, 2:02:46
1: Chapters, 16 chapters
2: h264/AVC, 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
3: TrueHD/AC3, English, 5.1 channels, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB
(embedded: AC3, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB)
4: TrueHD/AC3, German, 5.1 channels, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB
(embedded: AC3, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB)
5: AC3 Surround, English, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz, dialnorm: -27dB
6: Subtitle (PGS), English
7: Subtitle (PGS), English

As you can see track 3 is a truehd track, with an embedded ac3 5.1 track. For this example (and yours will be very similar) do the following command to pull out the video track, the audio track (the core, not the whole truehd track) and the 2 subtitle tracks.

eac3to movie.m2ts 2:"c:\Movie\Video.mkv" 3:"c:\Movie\Audio.ac3" 6:"c:\Movie\Sub1.sup" 7:"c:\Movie\Sub2.sup"

Notice the audio line. I named it .ac3 instead of .thd. The simple process of putting it in as .ac3 will tell eac3to that it should just extract the .ac3 file and not the full truehd file. Once you have all those extracted remux them with tsmuxer. Just add the .mkv, the .ac3, and the subs.

side note : If it was a dts master audio file, you would need to name the file .dts and add the -core option.
Example 2:"c:\Movie\Audio.dts" -core

back home!
i'm trying just now.

just one question:

...you say "name the extension as .ac3" and "Notice the audio line. I named it .ac3 instead of .thd. The simple process of putting it in as .ac3 will tell eac3to that it should just extract the .ac3 file and not the full truehd file."

so i'm doing just a downcovert from true-hd to ac3? i mean i'm extracting the ac3 audio track
and not the full-hd track?

If this is correct, i think is the same thing if i use tsmuxer, selecting the audio true-hd track and telling to downconvert to ac3, or no?

If this is correct, there is no other way to extract the "TRUE-HD" audio track and join it with the video and subtitles?

thx again for your help!! :)

alc0re
21st January 2009, 16:32
that's correct. its just extracting the base ac3 information. You can do it with tsmuxer or eac3to. i prefer extracting audio using eac3to. other ways....no idea. not sure why you would need other ways though...eac3to is a great program.

He wants to keep the TrueHD track though. One way is still use Eac3to but save it as THD+AC3. This will extract the TrueHD and the AC3 core into one audio file. TsMuxer will accept this.

For ease, I use the Blu Ray/HD DVD Stream Extractor GUI for Eac3to. I then select THD+AC3 from the drop down list for the right audio track.

It's on the forum. It has to be copied inside the eac3to folder.

TSmuxer can not import TrueHD! It's a bug!

Then he shouldn't import. :) If he has the m2ts file, why not just simply load it into tsMuxeR and deselect every stream, but the ones he wants (video + TrueHD track) and remux it?

Saves him the convoluted trouble of first extracting to .thd, then finding ways to import it again, etc.

First of all, thank you Atak_Snajpera for such a great program.

Secondly I have few feature requests/suggestions. I am a real newbie when it comes to encoding so bare with me please.
1. Could you add an option for copy video stream? I will explain: Using RipBot I have reencoded an exiting mkv that would not play on my ps3 into mp4 using the console profile. I have noticed that by default the audio was set to "stream copy". The mp4 is playable on the ps3 now but audio is missing some channels and/or some channels are played at extremely slow speed. The mp4 plays nicely on pc. The video copy would have helped me greatly, since I would be able to reencode/downmix the audio only, instead of reencoding the whole think, using some other GUI or learnig how all the command line tools work and piecing the script together my self.

2. I have tried to convert mov to mp4 but RipBot would not get pass extracting audio. I have went into the temp folder and by playing the job1.avs I got an AviSynth error: YV12 for output must have a width divisible by 4 (use crop). Well I went on and read up on avisynth, fixed the getinfo.avs, ran it, copied the info.txt elsewhere, aborted the import job and started again. Then I have waited until ripbot extracts the audio and when it tried to gather the info about the mov i have copied the info.txt back. After this the ripbot was able to finish the import. Before I started encoding I edited the job1.avs so it crops the video. Even though it was fun and learning experience it would be great if ripbot could detect this on its own if at all possible.

3. would it be possible for ripbot to get it's own forum/subforum? it is really hard/borderline impossible to sift through 190+ pages of users problems and suggestions to find if somebody already had a problem similar to mine.

Thanks again and keep up the great work.

That properties button will take you to the avs script options, which will let you hardcode subs into the movie. If that's what you're looking for that will work. If you're looking to have switchable subs (switch them on or off) then that will not be what you're looking for.

Right above the "lock size" option on the bottom right there is a "subtitles" button. Have you tried clicking that and seeing if the subtitles are there? That's where you add subs that are switchable, and ripbot i believe should be putting in the subs there automatically since you're using ripbot's interface to demux the streams...

I have asked about subs before. That section is for srt format subtitles. It is expected to turn the demuxed sup subtitles into srt subtitles by using ocr and something like suprip.

I find it is easier to use ripbot then process through Tsmuxer again but add the subtitles manually. Of course it would be easier if ripbot added these sup's itself.

Dolby TrueHD is a pain to work with. No problem extracting it with either eac3to or tsremux. The problem is remuxing which only tsmuxer can do and it usually (but not always) screws it up. You can also try to remux the m2ts file from tsmuxer with tsremux and occasionally that will fix the truhd. If you are using a DVD-9 then just use ripbot to convert it to ac3. However if you want to use it on a BD-25 or mkv then convert it to lpcm using eac3to. These are the safest and easiest approaches at this point until (and if) tsmuxer fixes the truhd bug.

I have a couple questions about using ripbot264 to change vc-1 to h264 so I can stream through the ps3.

I have the original files ripped onto my computer. Can I change the vc-1 stream to h264, and once thats done I will have a new file. I want to Go back into ts muxer and load the new video stream and use the original audio stream and create a m2ts file? I will then have a new m2ts file that I can stream through my ps3. Will this work? Also if I want the absolute highest quality do I just use 0 cq, or is there other things I need to change as well?

I have some experience now with the dts tracks, i also like to speedup my decode's to 25fps as my plasma has no real 24p mode and will jidder because of the pull down.

So i made some speedups, i encoded the planet earth series (ac3 to ac3) but to my surprise the audio started great but slowly got out of sync.

I then tried planet earth the movie and wall-e the both have dts master hd tracks and the speedup worked great only i had ac3 sound. As i prefer the superior sound quality from dts, i experimented an bit more and replaced in the command file Blue-ray_extractstreams.cmd the option -core by speedup. U could also leave the -core option and add behind it -speedup. This will give an dts track which is speedup to 25 fps. After this i ran the mux command again and it gave me an movie with dts.

Of course i rather try to sweet talk atak into implementing this in his app, when u select xxxcopy it would be great if u still could select an speedup or slowdown, currently u can only select cut.

In the job_encodeAudio.Cmd then needs to be an command which will speedup or slowdown the dts track with the appropriate command for eac3to.

What u think atak is this possible to implement ?

So if I want to go from 25 fps to 23.976, would I just have to add "-slowdown"?
Something like: -core -slowdown
Is this correct? The only editing to the script that i've done in Ripbot is the Addborders command, i've never done anything w/the audio but if there was some way to adjust that would be great!! I know Atak is a busy man but if he was able to implement something for PAL/NTSC slowdown/speedup audio options that awesome...

i just assembled a new core i7 920 system running at 3.9 ghz...

using graysky's x264 benchmark (720p) i am getting ~93 fps on the first pass and ~36 fps on the second pass.

on both passes the cpu is being used ~100%

i am encoding a 1080p mkv now with ripbot264 and the first pass is only going at about ~24fps using ~50% of the 8 cpu threads available. i would expect about twice that (it seems 720p/1080p is about 2:1 as far as fps on equivalent hardware). i had done another 1080p mkv and i got twice the performance of my old q6600 @ 3ghz on the seconds pass about 8 fps compared to ~16 fps on the new core i7 setup.

so my question is why is x264 in ripbot only using ~50% of my cpu on the first pass when i can use the x264 benchmark and see it use 100% of my cpu on both passes just not the second?

i obviously unchecked run in low priority in the gui and i also tried making the priority of the x264.exe process higher and it doesn't have any effect.

i am basically wondering why the first pass is not maxing out the cpu when the second pass does...:confused:

Hi All,

I have a little question, please,

I would like to know if I respect the "standard" of AVCHD for create a movie with this setting :

--level 4.1 --aud --nal-hrd --vbv-bufsize 50000 --vbv-maxrate 50000 --filter 1,1 --ref 14 --mixed-refs --bframes 8 --b-adapt 2 --weightb --direct auto --subme 7 --trellis 2 --partitions p8x8,b8x8,i4x4,i8x8 --8x8dct --me esa --threads auto --thread-input --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim

It's for "Journey to the Center of Earth Blu-ray" 3D ; It's for a DVD+R DL, and "LG BD-300" for my TV

Please (and I am very, very sorry for my English )

nurbs
29th January 2009, 10:00
@noosy:
Your settings are not avchd compatible. The megui profile looks like that
--level 4.1 --keyint 24 --min-keyint 2 --ref 3 --mixed-refs --bframes 3 --vbv-bufsize 16500 --vbv-maxrate 16500 --aud --nal-hrd
(Quality options not included in the above)
The wikipedia article says max-bitrate can 24Mbps but you'll have to try yourself.
The problems with your options were too many b-frames, too many refs and to big max bitrate and buffer size.
By the way if you use --trellis 2 and --me esa you might as well use --subme 9. That will probably bring more benefit than --me esa has over --me umh at less speed cost.

edit:
I forgot that avchd also allows only certain video resolutions. You can find a complete list in the english "AVCHD" article on wikipedia.

noosy
29th January 2009, 10:54
@nurbs:
Thanx for your response...

I wish I could use --subme 9 with RipBot264 1.12.0 but the film is in VC-1 and there is a problem with FFDSHOW which decodes to "libavcodec" instead of "WM9" I'm going to use RipBot264 v1.11.5 . I just want to create a directory Bluray film to be burned to a DVD + R DL to play on my TV as you an idea of the settings I can use to obtain the best possible quality for compression so important?

edit:
missing response;

If I use this setting : --level 4.1 --aud --nal-hrd --vbv-bufsize 50000 --vbv-maxrate 50000 --filter 1,1 --ref 4 --mixed-refs --bframes 3 --b-adapt 2 --weightb --direct auto --

subme 9 --trellis 2 --partitions p8x8,b8x8,i4x4,i8x8 --8x8dct --me esa --threads auto --thread-input --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim

appropriate quality, or can I do better?

nurbs
29th January 2009, 11:23
Looks fine quality wise, but as I said --vbv-bufsize 50000, --vbv-maxrate 50000 and --ref 4 are too high if you want to be avchd compatible (at least according to the megui profile) and you'll have to use --keyint 24 and --min-keyint 2.
In my opinion --me esa isn't worth it, --me umh would be faster and I doubt you could tell the difference.

What's wrong with default Level 4.0 profile???? It's already compatible with AVCHD!!! You really like to complicate simple things!

nurbs
29th January 2009, 15:14
Isn't the short keyframe intervall something you should use for avchd, like for blu-ray? I know in practice the blu-ray players don't care about it, but it's still in the spec.

Hi,

To play a movie Bluray burned to a DVD + R DL, it must be compatible AVCHD?

The default profile Atak-Snajpera will be compatible with players? (no Playstation!)

If so can I improve the quality of video delivered to this profile by changing the parameters?

Here is what I usually (but I think I did any of the "standard") : --level 4.1 --aud --nal-hrd --vbv-bufsize 50000 --vbv-maxrate 50000 --filter 1,1 --ref 4 --mixed-refs --bframes 3 --b-adapt 2 --weightb --direct auto --subme 9 --trellis 2 --partitions p8x8,b8x8,i4x4,i8x8 --8x8dct --me esa --threads auto --thread-input --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim

Atak_Snajpera
29th January 2009, 18:24
Only these two options will give you noticeable better quality --b-adapt 2 and --subme 9 . DO NOT MODIFY REST OF OPTIONS!!!

The default profile Atak-Snajpera will be compatible with players? (no Playstation!)
Can you read? What's the description of Level 4.0 profile???

29th January 2009, 19:32
Do you think for a movie about 1:40 in VC-1 I can get something acceptable on a DVD + R DL using your profile as you just changed me as stated? It is for a FULL-HD TV ...
Should I crop and add the black bars if I leave in 1080 or do I do if I do the movie in 720p

(Do not see anything wrong in my question, I have not yet been able to consider what it gave on TV and I do not know at what point it is better to reduce the resolution - I have not bought my Bluray player Salon)

My questions may be stupid - but I do not know anything

AVCHD specs aren't the same as blu-ray. You must be reading h.264/AVC.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVCHD

@slow4mula - if you have other filters (e.g. resize as you are doing 1080p -> 720p) they are not necessarily multithreaded, and become the bottleneck, not the actual x264 encoding which isn't being "fed" fast enough

Also some settings within x264 (e.g. --b-adapt 2) are not multithreaded, and become the bottleneck.

You're right: was reading the wrong wiki my own self. :) It says, though:

Up to 24 Mbit/s (AVCHD conforming to H264 High-Profile, Level 4.1)

That doesn't sound right, though: if it conforms to H264 High-Profile, Level 4.1, then maybe someone else misread the H264 wiki instead? :)

I use "--b-adapt 2" too, and x264 is always at (near) 100% on all cores.

Could be an effect of the hyperthreading, too, btw (~50% max for each of the 2 logical CPU's per core?) If so, it wouldn't be working very efficiently, though.

Hi Atak,

I have an MKV HD 720p movie with image @ 25fps, and want to convert with ripbot264 @ 23,97fps but audio is not sync.

I try to set manual audio at 640 kbps with STRETCH, CUT and OFF option and it's all the time out of sync.

I convert it with 25fps but my bluray not reconized. It's why i've try to convert in 23,97fps but i really don't know what to do.

I have two movies are the samething trouble.

Could you help me please?

Latest ffdshow, ripbot 1.12.0, avisynth 2.5.8 latest rc build of CLSID build, etc. Try with 2 pc and same trouble.

great program! definately the best compression:quality ratio i've seen for mp4!

few questions. is it possible to batch a group of files? (*.mov > *.mp4 H.264).

I am trying to batch a bunch of tutorials that I have on DVD. one of the mov files I am talking about is here (please look at #2. Creating Illustrator Documents > "Libraries and content"): Link (http://anonym.to/?http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/modPage.asp?ID=718)

its generally very static screens, but i would love to keep the sharp quality, the only thing I've noticed is that (using the HD blueray default setting), the light grays come out pure white, bleaching out some of the lighter tones. what can I change to improve this? the only tweak i made was to the audio to 96khz from 128.

also, sometimes for the audio, i have to copy/paste in the location of the mov file for it to see the audio (as *sometimes* it is totally blank and doesn't show any mov files in the source file folder)

thanks for any help.

OT: do you guys recommend a better format for these kind of tutorial files?

Just reverted back to RipBot264v1.12.0 and still reports as 24 fps, but the program now runs without the nal-hrd error - Could this be because of the new Haali media splitter version or the latest FFdshow ( using ffdshow_rev2633_20090130_clsid_mt.exe).?

If i use 64 bit OS i must download x264 64 bit and replace the x264 that is in the folder or what ?

Added: custom resize profile with locked aspect ratio
Added: language combobox for audio stream

Will check this out :)

Added: FFDshow DV decoder will be automatically enabled if necessary

Some of my friends had problems with this, good update.

Fixed: Bug which always resets VC-1 decoder to libavcodec. Default decoder is now wmv9 (Reason: Supports interlaced material)

I do not use interlaced material, will this cause problems ?

Cheers

@juGGaKNot
If you download another 64 bit x264 you'd replace x264_x64.exe, x264.exe is 32 bit.
wmv9 won't cause any problems with non-interlaced content it will just be a little faster encode then libavcodec

@bigggt
ffdshow MT isn't necessary but it will speed up the encode if you have multiple cores but regular ffdshow will get the job done
for 64 bit x264 encoding all you need is 'Usex264x64=1' in RipBot264.ini and x264_x64.exe in the tools/x264 directory

On my pc I have the 10-1-2009,can I just use this one? Which one do you have installed Atak?
Mark

I did an encode using this version and it appears to work fine if you bypass the software check.

Overall a pretty good speed boost on my core i7. I just encoded the Duchess(Blu-ray) to BD5 in just a little over 4hrs.

great program! definately the best compression:quality ratio i've seen for mp4!

few questions. is it possible to batch a group of files? (*.mov > *.mp4 H.264).

I am trying to batch a bunch of tutorials that I have on DVD. one of the mov files I am talking about is here (please look at #2. Creating Illustrator Documents > "Libraries and content"): Link (http://anonym.to/?http://movielibrary.lynda.com/html/modPage.asp?ID=718)

its generally very static screens, but i would love to keep the sharp quality, the only thing I've noticed is that (using the HD blueray default setting), the light grays come out pure white, bleaching out some of the lighter tones. what can I change to improve this? the only tweak i made was to the audio to 96khz from 128.

also, sometimes for the audio, i have to copy/paste in the location of the mov file for it to see the audio (as *sometimes* it is totally blank and doesn't show any mov files in the source file folder)

thanks for any help.

OT: do you guys recommend a better format for these kind of tutorial files?

not one helpful reply guys?

4th February 2009, 12:38
@OH_NO_ITS_FRODO
When you mean 'batch a group of files' is that combining all files into one file?
If so and they are all the same framerate/resolution you can do that with an avisynth script (.avs) that looks like:
1=directshowsource("file1.mov")
2=directshowsource("file2.mov")
3=directshowsource("file3.mov")
1+2+3

Where file# are the files you want to 'combine' then input this into ripbot if there's audio with the clips you might have some sync issues though

If they aren't the same resolution you can add .LanczosResize(<resolution>) to each of the file lines
If they aren't the same framerate you can add .AssumeFPS(<framerate>) to each file line (this will for sure cause audio sync issues)

4th February 2009, 13:09
hey thanks for the reply turbojet!

will keep that info handy as i often come across a file that was split into 2 parts.

with batch I mean, single separate (*.mov) files in. single separate (*.mp4) files out. but batched from a list queue using the same settings (like the way autogk works, if you're familiar with it)

I'm trying to put some of my downloads on a dvd but some are 5gb+ size ISO's (official Lynda, Noesis, Softimage, etc releases). hence trying to use the mp4 compression. I've used "Easy RealMedia Producer" in the past for the same purpose (transcoded to *.rmvb) which worked great. but looking to do the same with mp4 now.

I'm a n00bie when it comes to mp4/H.264

Thanks for the new version but there is a bug. It thinks I am using Vista as it asks to download a font. I don't want to.

I have a question about sup support. The log saids it won't be visible when using 720p. I have been manually muxing the 720p video and ac3 audio with a separately sup subtitle at 1080p and they are visible.

Sometimes the COPY STREAM option for Audio is unavailable to me. I'll select the video element, and BLU-RAY DISC for output, then my .ac3 track which is usually the disc original e.g. 640Kbps 6 channel, but despite that I've selected Blu-ray as the output option RipBot won't give me COPY STREAM as an option--I'll get instead 2ch Aften in a few bitrates e.g. 192 and 256 etc.

I say "comes & goes" because sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. Has anyone else seen this? It's as if MediaInfo is mis-reading my .ac3 track somehow. If I choose MKV output I get the COPY STREAM option, but not when I click BLU-RAY. :confused:

BTW it has happened both with the latest 1.13 but also the previous 1.12. Heck now I went back to 1.11.5 and old 29-March Haali and still see the problem...

I have this problem too - No audio file is seen in the audio box - but you can browse to it and then Xcopy will appear.
Also many saved preferences ( saved in RipBot264.ini ) do not show - such as profile, desired bitrate and output path. This is using XP pro SP3. Seems like this version has many incomptiblities with Xp - will stick with 1.12.0 until fixed).

Here's an example where the .ac3 is unchanged from the BD (640Kbps, 6-channel, not E-AC3) but RipBot264 doesn't show COPY STREAM as an option (though at least in this case it does give 640 as an option).

EDIT: I've now tried 1.12.0 and 1.11.5 and even re-installed old Haali and still no good. Wonder if RipBot264 depends on anything else in my setup that might be amiss. Using XP Pro x64 here (and am now going to try my old P4 machine).

I tried using v1.13.0 last night and am having some problems. I bypassed the check (i have the latest of the 3 required) and tried encoding The Bourne Supremacy (BD). I loaded up the .ts (contained only the video) and the .dts track, cropped the black bars and set the output as an mkv. When I hit start, couple seconds passed and 'All Jobs Finished' came up. Not exactly sure why this happened since I encoded the same movie with v1.12.0 and it worked just fine.

Now if I'm not mistaken, with v1.13.0 the CUT function is always on? If that's the case, it doesn't reflect it in the menu for v1.13.0. If the video was slightly longer than the audio in v1.12.0 and you switched between CUT and OFF, you could clearly see the difference. With v1.13.0, it doesn't show that anymore.

Bluray chapters seem to be broken in 1.13.0.

If I advance chapter on standalone, it hangs, then returns to the beginning of the disc.

It worked fine in 1.12.0.:confused:
maybe it has something to do with this?

There is always my installer. Just deselect the FFDShow install and the AVIsynth

I am hopping to have a new item as pat of the install real by next release...

Auto means the biggest HDD or partition. Which partition is the biggest on your pc? Screenshot ?

Until i upgraded to 1.13.0 partition E was always used

D and E are the same size ( 596 gb ) but E has more free space.

Auto worked fine until now.

If you download another 64 bit x264 you'd replace x264_x64.exe, x264.exe is 32 bit.

I don't get it. What about the need for a 64bit AviSynth (and dito plugins!) then?

Maybe I am wrong, but:
Avisynth 32bit and plugins 32bit can be piped over avs2yuv.
YUV is a raw format x264 64bit can handle.
So it seems to be a hybrid solution.
And is good, as long overhead (pipeline and conversion) is smaller than gain from 64bit code.

At my Q9650 at 3.825 GHz new RipBot is around 6% faster.

Why do I feel like there will be a 1.14.0 soon? ;) Just busting your chops, Atak!

How well has RipBot worked for you guys on the Windows 7 64 bit Beta? I am debating installing AnyDVD and RipBot on that partition just to see how much faster, if at all, I can encode.

Right now, I am running Vista Home (32 bit) with a Q6700@3.33 GHz, 4 GB of 800MHz RAM @667 MHz (synced in SLi mode) on a 780i mobo and a single 1TB WD Black Edition HDD. The Windows 7 Beta is on a separate hard drive (just an old 500 GB that I had) with obviously the same equipment other than the hard drive.

I would love to hear from the guys who made the jump to the i7 setups from the quad processors about how much encoding sped up. I would love to have a good reason to build another rig ;)

Thanks!

It might be doable with Kamiwa's Batch Encoder it allows you to do this. http://www.kamiwa.de/en/node/16 Here is a link to the installer (http://www.kamiwa.de/files/BatchEncoderSetup.rar) And here is the Subversion (http://subversion.kamiwa.de/svn/repobrowser.svn?path=/&revision=HEAD&name=kamiwa) if you want to do some editing/updating to the source and Compile its Written in C# 2005....

To All:
All I see is it needing is a few small improvements so it might be good as soon as 1.13.5.

I am sure hes been fixing some if not all the issues found since release. So be patient he will get it fixed.

It doesn't take long to hit the back button on your explorer and use some of the other GUI's. :) Some are quite easy to use and most use the exact same codec and tool set.:p

Use the elementary streams.

Also some mp4box builds have issues with AC3 in .mp4. Another option in this case would be mp4muxer.

This takes 2 steps;
1) encode your video & audio (or just the video & retain AC3)
2) take the elementary video & audio to mux them in to .mp4 with mp4muxer

I can not get version 1.13 to work. v1.12, after juggling various versions of required apps, finally worked. However, v 1.13 says I'm missing both FFDshow and Haali Media Splitter, even though v 1.12 accepts my configuration.

I even tried uninstalling and reinstalling various versions of FFDshow, both x86 and x64 (preferably), and v 1.12 works fine but not v 1.13. Any suggestions?

If you have v1.13.0 then go to the RipBot264 folder & look for RipBot264.ini then change this //RipBot264 will check if AviSynth, FFDshow and Haali Media Spliter are installed and will also check account type
CheckRequiredSoftware=1 change the 1 to 0 then save, it will work now.

v1.13.0 is the best RipBot264 to date so far. not only that but i get a smaller size in my mp4 when using the same settings as the source video with subs, two x264 64bit is faster then x264 32bit by 10% or more. three, the IQ is freaking sweet, i will post a picture soon of the mkv file to mp4.

@Atak: just for info

With Ripbot264 v1.13 I just finished encoding of Mummy Triology and Pirates of Caribian Triology.
I selected DTS-HD stream copy and changed --b-adapt to 2 and --subme to 9 to increase quality a bit.
All encodes had target size of DVD9 (8150MB).
All encodes were 3% undersized (display of ImgBurn 97% of disk space used).

Do you mean a dts => ac3 conversion (no video)? I don't think it can, I would use eac3to to do that. Another option would be foobar2000 with dts plugin

It looks like ripbot had errors when trying to do that conversion. Ripbot uses eac3to but try the standalone eac3to for the audio conversion. If you still have problems, post in the eac3to thread for help

nwg
7th February 2009, 18:11
Of course Ripbot can do DTS - AC3. Just select AC3 640kbps in the drop down box after selecting the DTS in the streams box. If something goes wrong then it is a Eac3to issue.

took a look at the app but i dodsnt do what i what it to do
there is no way at all to set file size
and now way im toutching Divx as the encoder even thou it can make it in to a mkv file.

has tryed a lot off other apps most have setting comming out of there asses and the others are missing settings.

ripbot264x is simple with all the settings i need exept you have to import 1 file at a time it woud make it mutch easier if one was able to import an entire folder at a time.
