Why do you need 5.1 profile???? Do you even know what's the real difference between 5.1 and 4.0. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264#Levels

I just tried the RipBot264 transcode utility that was referenced in the latest print edition of MaximumPC (March 2009), relating to ripping Blu-Ray DVDs. Used in conjunction with AnyDVD-HD, RipBot264 is a GREAT tool to accomplish essentially a one application transcode to either MP4 or MKV (I prefer MKV), and I REALLY appreciate the ability to use RipBot264 with AnyDVD-HD to produce a wonderful ripped result. However, I am having difficulty with the subtitles.

I own a full retail Blu-ray copy of the 1970 Oscar award winning movie "Patton." The original size of the main movie file is over 37GB, so it needs some considerable reduction to be able to be burned on a DVD+ DL disk. However, the transcode to that 8GB size, using the latest version of RipBot264, produces an outstanding and visually brilliant movie. But, no matter what tweaks I've tried, I can't get the English subtitles to appear in the ripped version.

During numerous scenes in that movie, German military officers and other have extended dialog spoken in German, which appears as English subtitles in the original retail copy that I have. However, the ripped version does not have any subtitles, and that seriously detracts from the movie. Can someone please help me with getting the English subtitles to appear in the ripped version. Many thanks for any assistance that can be offered. Best regards. TheBeagle

with version 1.12.0 you need to locate the sup file you need and then ocr the file to a srt text file. This can be done with suprip. If you have more than one English sub, ocr each one until you find the one you want. You then add the srt file in the add subtitle above the ripbot output directory.

With 1.13.+ if it works. It will read the sup file directly. Use the same add subtitle and select the sup file.

What you can also do it burn the srt directly into the image so the translation comes up automatically. However, it will be part of the image all the time. If you don't want to do that then just use the subtitle button the remote to display the right subtitle.

replace new 1.13.2 with old one 1.12.0. Let's what happens.

also send me job1.avs and all .cmd (32-bit) files from both versions(12 and 13)



Hi Atak,
Only just seen your latest post, but since RipBot was set to auto shutdown the temp folder data is lost this time.

Anyway here are my latest test results:

I used 1.12.0 but upgraded the following tools with 1.13.2 versions of the tools:

Eac3to 2.87--> 3.11
MediaInfo 0.7.8 --> 0.7.11
x264 r1066M --> r1114M
DGAVCDec 1.0.7 --> 1.0.8
DGIndex 1.5.3 --> 1.5.4

Results:

1.12.0 + Eac3to v3.11 + x264 r1114M + Mediainfo 0.7.11 + DGAVCDec 1.0.8 + DGIndex 1.5.4= WORKING!! :)

As requested I will now run 2 tests and upload all the data files you have requested:

Test 1:

Will by 1.13.2 in 32bit mode (ini = 0) but with the complete “Tools” folders exchanged with the tools folders from 1.12.0

Test 2:

Will be totally standard 1.12.0

Atak,

Well-done you’ve located the prob :)

I’ve aborted the encoding of 1.13.2 with tools folder from 1.12.0 and just checked the Encoder Proprieties screen.

You can see from this screen dump attached:

http://www.mediafire.com/?jzdmynwimd1

That the check box is checked and “--aud and --nal-hrd” is present in the lower window, but does not show in the:

job1_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd

or

job1_EncodeVideoPass2.cmd

Files

Can you explain why this is??

I will now check standard 1.12.0

Discoboy
20th February 2009, 20:37
Atak,

Yes!!!

With v1.12.0 both “job1_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd” and “job1_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd” files have “--aud and --nal-hrd” present.

Requested files attached to show that “--aud and --nal-hrd” is present

Haha! Do you know what was your problem?!?! VERY simple :) You selected COPY STREAM under audio profile that's why audio was out of sync. Video was trimed but audio was untouched. Here's a lesson for you next time. You must always re-encode audio when you add Trim function!

Aah, can't leave it untouched then. Thnx for letting me know mate. Cheers!

Hi Atak,

Just to update you.

I ran 1.13.2 in 64bit mode! but manually added the “--aud” and “--nal-hrd” attributes to both the “job1_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd” and “job1_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd” files before starting the encoding.

Results = Working !! :) Chapter skip and pause functions now working

Also file size is good at 3MB short in 64bit mode.

Are you any closer to working out why these attributes are not be added but are selected in the GUI?

Many thanks,
Discoboy :thanks:

BUT encoding engine (x264) is optimized for multicores !!! More cores always means faster encoding (2X , 4X)


Instead of AMD 9550 2,2Ghz I would buy Q6600 2,4 Ghz . It can be overclocked very easly to at least 3Ghz. I have Q6600@3ghz and it's rock stable! All you need is to change fsb to 333. You don't have to raise cpu voltage and you don't have to buy extra cooling system! I doubt that you will achieve the same result on amd cpu.
How fast is your machine on encoding blurays to 1080p mkvs?
I just make a 2pass file. First pass encoded with 17fps, second pass is now at 6.6...I guess, something is wrong here.
I have the same problems using automkv. I can't imagine, using a quad takes almost as long as doing the job an a dual core machine. can you please post pictures of YOUR settings for a good quality mkv 1080p autocrop file @ 2 pass.
If my current job is done, it will have taken 12hours.

Intel q6600 @ 3GHz
Asus P5B Deluxe
4GB RAM
931GiB Seagate 7200.11 333AS

whell it think i already tried that program at i coudnt use it there are missing some settings i want to use like "set file limit" and second its using divx 7 and i dont use divx ever not since it went pay to use crap.

right now im using MediaCoder but it has way to many bugs to be at stable encoder.
it will encode 16-18 files and then the program comes op with a message that the encoder has stoped working and says that it might be becorse there are some other program using the cpu but there isnt running any other programs, when that message apears i need to restart my system becorse it fucks every thing op.
Ripbot264 works flawlesh with 30 or more files but it takes a long time to import 30 files 1 at a time it woud be So mutch easy'er with an add folder option.

I don't know if its going to be added because of the work involved.

When taking an idea like this in you have to consider the amount of time it will take for each file to be indexed and the source being used.

It might be doable but the way its setup now allows for a more direct editing of the out put...

Some files will be interlaced and others will be progressive.

Some will need cropping and some wont.

The List goes on. Like I said I don't think that it in on the road map.:rolleyes:

I have never had a oversize in over 20 encodes. I do use a custom size of 4450. I did my first BD 25 encode and decided to to it a bit less than the default 23850 and ended up at 21.6GB (22118MB).

I would like to add a custom 364x272 PSP preset. I understand that 480x272 in 4:3 mode produces a similar result, but hard-coding the black bars adds to the file size. A clean 4:3 resolution would be better because PSP adds its own black bars without increasing your file size.

Probably because it can't figure out where Haali is? I'll make sure I'm on the most recent build and try again.

Thanks!

No prob. I usually disable software check just cause the potential for a bug seems a little to high.

have you tried the most recent version of RipBot. I know it had some issues in the 1.13.0 version of it...:rolleyes:

So I checked and I using the current version. So it's back to the drawing board. I can get the program to run if I disable the startup check, but when I try to convert the video it doesn't. The last line in the log says:

"Error: The source file 'C:\temp\RipBot264temp\video.264' could not be opened successfully, or retrieving its size by seeking to the end did not work."

That file definitely does NOT exist, but I have no idea why. There is a directory for each job under the "C\temp\RipBot264temp\" directory... Any idea what I'm missing here?

Thx!

Keep jobs queue unchecked is for deleting temp directory?
If so it doesn't seem to work with StoreTempFilesin=AUTO

Also StoreTempFilesin=AUTO creates a blank temp dir in C:\ and a Temp dir in the largest partition, E:\ in my case.

Edit: I figured out what C:\temp is from as the default output dir was left blank and that's the default. I figured if I left it blank it wouldn't make that dir and use the source input directory like it always does by default for me. But I guess when input is from an image or BD it can't use input as output. Well hmm maybe you mean keep jobs queue unchecked deletes everything inside the Temp dir, it does indeed do that, but could it delete the Temp dir too? Same with default output dir.

That's odd I can delete just fine in vista, in windows 7 I could as well but not the PerfLogs directory, are you using UAC?

Also I notice that no matter what I set for default output directory, C:\temp is created.

Sorry to be nitpicky I just like to keep my hard drives some what organized and empty temp dirs don't really help that cause.

One more question: I only have 720p TVs, so I need to convert everything to 720p. I thought, from reading the forum posts that you just need to set the MODE to 2-Pass, and then set the Lock Size to 4.5GB (or close). I did that, but it looks like the video is still 1080p. Is there a tool that will tell me what the video is? And should I be doing something differently to convert the video to the lower res?

Thanks again for the help!

Quick question - using the latest version of RipBot - I convered an 8GB HD-DVD file into a 4GB MKV file. While the results look good - playback seems a bit strange. I use VLC Player and the resulting MKV files seems to play back "fast" and seems to "stutter a little"

Also if I skip ahead in the video - I am at the end of the video while the slider bar in VLC is only just past the 1/2 way mark.

Is my MKV file ok and VLC that is acting up? Or is there a problem in Ripbot?

Confused... Any help would be great appreciated.

I was just about to post something about the ff/rwd as the picture freezes or stutters on my player. Is this working ok in 1.12.0? I am currently using that version to do a Blu Ray and rather not have to start again.

Also, with 1.12.0 I used off to make the audio kept in sync. As that option seems to be missing, will it still be in sync. I usually use copy stream for the audio.

I've been using Ripbot without problems for a long time now, nothing changed on my system that I know of.

I've tried re-installing Halli, avisynth and ffdshow (x64) several times now. Tried starting a job with and without audio. Tested my RAM. Spent hours searching the forum and Google and I really don't want to wipe the OS and start over lol.

I don't think so.
Reasons:
1) mkvmerge and Haali media splitter do not support truehd yet
2) eac3to can not fix audio gaps in trueHD stream (a/v sync problems)
3) lack of avisynth plugins
3) calculation formula for blu-ray structure will not work due to variable bitrate in True-HD stream

if that is the case, shouldn't it be displayed?
No. You see actual informations. A/V same length function will be activated after you click OK button (proper Trim values are added under #AVSameLength in script)

, now that the delay option is in properties, it's awkward getting the delay correct in one go..
hopefully my last niggle for today, instead of 50ms can the option be 20ms or the old 10ms pls? maybe an .ini setting could be applied?

It's easier for me to have audio delay section next to preview button because I can quickly check if delay in preview is correct! In older version I had to go back to main windows each time. Besides I got free space for Language combobox without ruin basic design. In terms of GUI's design I'm very strict. We have saying in Poland that 'Everything must have arms and legs'.
Regarding audio delay. 50ms step is optimal for me. Maximum error is only 25ms. There is no way you can detect that kind of delay!
Simple example:
Let's say you have video @ 25fps
1000ms / 25fps = 40ms
Every frame is displayed in 40ms intervals. So maximum error (25ms) is smaller that duration of single frame!

For build in picture, the sup needs to be ocr'd with suprip to a srt file. If you select blu ray as the outcome you can add a sup file in the subtitle screen (above the location of the end results on the right side of the software). You will have to select the subs manually each time though.

Thank you Atak for a wonderful program. I've been using it with great success for some time now. I have one question: I use 64 bit Vista with 4 gigs of RAM with an Intel Quad Core processor. I understand that Ripbot will now run in 64 bit mode but when I view my processes I find that it is still running as a 32 bit application. How can I enable 64 bit encoding or did I misunderstand the new 64 bit capabilities? I'm using version 1.13.3.

I have tried this myself for Pans labyrinth and the SUP file preview was pure garbage, I took a leap of faith and burned the bluray DVD that was outputted, I even made sure that the subtitle language was selected as spanish but still my Sony BDP-S550 would not show the subtitles, this was a few revisions back though.

You installed ffdshow (x64) or MT?

It is ffdshow x64, although in the codec settings it does say ffdshow-mt. I can't see any other versions of x64 ffdshow at Soundforge.

But this was working fine before.

So I tried installing the latest sse version of ffdshow and left x64 version installed. It doesn't give the error now. So something is definitely wrong with x64 codec install.

I would think Ripbot would still try using the x64 version since it should detect the codec as being installed.

@RCF

You do not need a X64 version of FFshow just the clsid versions. I’m using rev_2653_20090203_clsid at the moment.

Check in the RipBot264 “ini” file that Use x264x64=1 is set

When the encoding is actually started go via “Ctrl” + “Alt” + “Delete” then to “Task Manager” then to “Processes” You should then see X264_X64.exe file running >50%. This then confirms you are running the X264 X64bit version.

For me during testing with a Q6600 @ 3.4Ghz + 4Gb ram average encoding time for 2 pass reduced from around 5.5 hours down to 5 hours

It is an interesting note that just might be my system... (currently testing on another system BTW) I ran a couple entire main video vob's through ripbot and when the 1st pass cmd file was run on the video. x264_x64.exe ran 2 frames in then killed leaving me with a 3kb video.264 file in the temp dir.

When I run the cmd scripts outside the gui they execute just fine, but when the gui runs them at the end all I get is a 2/3kb video clip muxed in with a full audio file...

Like I said it might be nothing but my system. Here are the relevant specs.. AMD Phenom 9500 x4 4GBram Windows 7 Ultimate x64 preRC1...

Just figured I would give you all a heads up cause I just got done Converting about 50 DVD's to mp4 for my pod. And every one was just audio... No error was thrown so the logs are irrelevant...

I dont know how many times I have to say it,, but I can guarantee you that unless you go into properties and resize it to 1280x720, ITS NEVER GOING TO PLAY ON APPLE TV.

It will play fine in Itunes, but if you try to sync it to your apple tv it will tell you that the format is incorrect and will not sync to the apple tv.

I dont mean to sound like a ass, and I was very nice last time I brought this up, but what good is it to offer a Apple TV profile when it wont work without resizing the video?

You have a great piece of software, but stop for a minute and actually listen to someone that HAS a apple tv.

I dont mean to sound like a ass, and I was very nice last time I brought this up, but what good is it to offer a Apple TV profile when it wont work without resizing the video?

You have a great piece of software, but stop for a minute and actually listen to someone that HAS a apple tv.


The presets are only for compatible x264 encoding settings... Guess what... you have to resize that 1080p source for the ipod too...:p

Umm..I thought it was using h264 to encode? Do you have to set that option then? I thought the whole idea behind ripbot 264 was that it encoded everything using h.264. Is that not correct?

I guess I dont get what your saying. I thought the whole idea behind a preset was so you DIDNT have to resize anything, it resized it for you for the device in the profile, eg, psp, ipod, iphone, apple tv, etc ,etc

Umm..I didnt say anything about Ipod. Im talking about the Apple TV profile. Apple tv is 1280x720 (for the highest resolution.)

Right from apples site:

====================

Video formats supported

* H.264 and protected H.264 (from iTunes Store): Up to 5 Mbps, Progressive Main Profile (CAVLC) with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps (maximum resolution: 1280 by 720 pixels at 24 fps, 960 by 540 pixels at 30 fps) in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats

====================

So, you can import any movie you want into itunes (within reason) but that doesnt mean it will play on apple tv when you try to sync it or play it on the apple tv. If it exceeds either spec listed above by apple, it will give you a error message when trying to sync it on the apple tv.

Therefore, if you pick the apple tv profile, it should default to 1280x720. If for some reason someone is really concerned about disk space, they can change the resolution to 960x540, but ripbot should be defaulting to at least ONE of these profiles instead of a non apple tv supported profile.

Video profiles and audio profiles WILL NEVER BE connected with video size. It's up to you to select correct size. I don't care if stupid appleTV accepts only two resolutions (720p24fps and 540p30fps) How come PS3 can play everything in High Profile up to 1080p@29.97fps??? Why did you buy this crap? There are better solutions and probably cheaper!

Atak,

I may be dumb not knowing how to do this, but is there any way to tell RipBot encode something other than the main movie file on a BD? For example, I am trying to convert individual episodes of Pushing Daisies. When I click on a stream, RipBot looks for the mpls files that correspond to all three episodes; so, rather than getting my single 40 minute episode, I get a 2 hour single file of all three episodes back-to-back-to-back. Obviously for movies, that is great since some studios split their main features into multiple m2ts files. Here, though, it's irritating because I want to break these up. Any suggestions/solutions? Thanks.

I have to admit, I am anti-Apple too lol In fact, I am anti iPod AND Zune. I still have my iRiver H320 from around 2004. I detest all of these MP3 players that force proprietary software on you, and I am not convinced that Rockbox is the solution. Just a couple of weeks ago I did surgery on my little iRiver to bring it back to life because I knew I couldn't bring myself to buy an iPod ;)

You could pre-process the files to a new BD structure. Then put the new files through Ripbot. It make a extra step but look at clown_BD. It will show all the playlists and you should be able to select individual episodes. It will then automatically use eac3to/tsmuxer to create a new BD structure for you. Put this in ripbot.

Probably because there's a big DOWNLOAD link on the page your link points that leads to a generic listing and because previous versions worked fine with whatever version of FFDshow your last version worked with.

Maybe your douche arrogant attitude, terrible english and unintuitive program is the cause of complication.

IF i wanted to buy crap, id buy a PSP. Talk about crap.

And if you dont like the apple tv, take out the profile. But dont put a profile in there that doesent have a useable resolution for apple tv. thats like making the default psp profile 5000x3000. Doesent make much sense if the PSP cant play it does it?
You can talk all you want about not tying resolution to video/audio profiles, but yet in every profile you have , you have a default profile that works with the device you list (EXCEPT APPLE TV!!)

Wrong again. You obviously don't understand or haven't paid any attention.

There is no resizing done by the profiles, they just set compatible x264 encoder settings, that is all! You have to resize separately for every profile. It just happens that other devices may have better support than the AppleTV. e.g. If I just encode my blu-ray source and don't resize, of course it won't work on the ipod! ....and guess who makes the Ipod ... :)

Actually I did, as I use CS4 and FCP on the mac, migrated from vegas and cs3 on the pc. Adobe says the next iteration of PS will support 64bit on the mac.
The only adobe products I use on my macs are PS and Lightroom anyway, so its not a huge issue atm for me. I have a hard enough time with FCP, dont need to try to master PS.

BTW, for all the bitching Ive done the last few posts, wanted to say thanks for making my life alot easier with the blu ray support in Ripbot. My old way to convert hd-dvd to blu-ray was to use eac3to and TsMuxer, with sometimes not so good results. Ive had good luck so far with Ripbot and AnyDvd.

Well that's Apple for you a box of stupid overpriced under achieving hardware.

Sad' Buy a Popcorn Hour.

Apple TV was/is mainly used for stuff purchased off of iTunes. Kind of a selfish buy it our way type of sales man attitude. Now you know why people hate Mac.

I suppose you could tweak the cmd line to pass through the audio with that particular bitrate @ 5.1.. Don't know if this will work though... You would have to do the whole process manually with only Ripbot to set up the initial cmd's and avs scripts. All other editing/tweaking and processing would have to be done separate from ripbot.

Well, for movies it only allows up to 160 kbps (LC-AAC) which isn't enough for good quality 5.1 and apple doesn't support HE. Looks like they use AC3 in their downloads, so that could be worth a try.

I think apple designs some nice hardware, but for digital media players unless you plan to buy the majority of your movies frome Itunes there a lots of better and often cheaper choices then the apple tv. I bought a Western Digital "WD TV" (85€) and a 1TB external harddrive (100€) which gives me way more storage capacity (>6 times more) and supported codecs then the 160GB apple tv has for a cheaper price (less then half). I have to admit it wouldn't solve your problem because it downmixes 5.1 AAC to stereo, but at least it would play the file.
edit: Popcornhour would also be a good choice if you want to spend a bit more. It does 5.1 AAC AFAIK.

Last night I ripped Righteous Kill using anyDVD HD. Full DVD backup came out at 16.5gb. I then remuxed the movie only using tsMuxer, downsampling the HD DTS to standard DTS. This came out at 13.5gb.

Then I fed this into RipBot264, made sure profile 4.0 was selected, then selected CQ=18. Audio was set to 'Copy Stream' and output set to MKV. I selected Automatic for cropping and checked via preview. All other options were left as default.

14.5 hours later I have a MKV file that has come out at 14.5gb, 1gb bigger than the original!

Does anyone have any ideas how this might have happened?

a) With CQ encoding you can't predict how big the movie will come out.
b) For a 1080p encode cq 18 is overkill.

Sorry, I understand points a and b. Point a is a fact, point b is your opinion. But for point c surely CQ = constant quality, and CRF = 18? I.e I've specified I want a contstant quality by selecting CQ, and I've selected the 'quality' of the encode by selecting CRF 18. So not sure what you mean?

And while I understand that you can't predict how big the file will come out with CQ, I was looking for help as to why it has come out bigger than the input file.

nurbs
3rd March 2009, 16:43
To point c) I thought CQ stood for Constant Quantizer, my mistake.

The input file are the uncompressed pictures you feed to the encoder, much bigger then the 14.5 gigs you got from the encode. The filesize of the compressed source video isn't important, the complexity of the material is.

If you encode low resolutions like 640*360 you may want to use lower values, especially if you are going to upscale the video on playback. Generally the higher the quality of the source material and the higher the resolution you encode to the higher the CQ value can be while still maintaining good quality. For most people CQ 22 at 1280x720 is very good quality, so at 1920x1080 there is even less of a chance that problems will be noticable.


And it still fails to answer why the output file is bigger than the input file!

Your output file isn't bigger than your input file. The input to the encoder are a series of uncompressed images decoded from your original file. The input size in bits is [width * hight * bits per pixel * frames per second * duration of the video]. For a typical 2 hour movie (1080p) the input is about 500GB of uncompressed images.

I just grabbed the newest version of RipBot and ffdshow, but I'm still having a strange issue.

I have some fansubbed HD anime .mkv files that I have been reencoding for streaming to various devices in my house. Most of the files convert just fine, but I've run into a couple where the audio doesn't come through.

If I double-click the original .mkv file and open it in Media Player, everything is peachy. Audio and video both work just fine.

If I open the exact same .mkv file in RipBot, everything seems okay (audio and video tracks both demuxed, listed and selectable), but I get no audio in the preview, and output files have no audio either.

I'm really scratching my head on this one...

what would be great is if u can direct it to a source folder, add all settings and hit encode.

rb264 can then do each file one by one.

Yes, that would be fine. Or just drag and drop a bunch of files directly onto the interface, like in ConvertXtoDVD.

Hi

I just installed ripbot on a quad core along with ffdshowMT

1.I am going from blu-ray to ipod resolution and am getting 65 fps, is this low ( i thought before it was over 100)

2.when i open task manager avs2yuv.exe is using 65% and x264_x64.exe is only using 25%. is this normal

3.one final question, i tried doing saw 3 blu-ray which is mpeg2 and it doesn't show ffdshow by the clock and the video is all screwed up when finished,i checked libavcodec is selected in ffdshow config under mpeg2

thanks

For god sake! Use default 22 value instead of 18. Who told you to change this value?
Nurbs is right! 18 is too MUCH!!!!

I use 20 because 18 is overkill as you said but 20 is just about right for anime & shows :)

I've used this program to convert many .mkv files into AVCHD discs that play on my PS3, what I wondering is if the blu-ray option could be expanded, say a value in the fixed size dropdown of about 23gb ( I know I can type this in manually, so that isn't very important) but what I'm more interested in is if support for LPCM audio could be added, so it didn't downconvert it to AC3?

I've authored a few blu-rays myself, but the process is much much more complex than the very easy process this program has given me to make AVCHD discs.

In any event great work, I love the program.

I only do HD DVD or Blu Ray to DVD/BD 25. Everytime I have used a version 1.13 or later, I get out of sync audio. I think I remember that cut is used for the audio? When I use 1.12 I have always used off for the audio and has been in sync everytime (20+ now). Am I missing something?

I am going to try to save a encode by muxing the original audio from the disc to try and get in sync.

I still have all the temp files from the last job if any particular file is wanted.

Also, every disc I have done does not ff/rw (even with that jdobs fixclpi). If the disc is not processed by ripbot, and just muxed with TsMuxer then ff/rw is fine (under 23GB already).

GeoffYes, my amp indicates it's receiving DD 5.1. I leave audio track 1 to automatic aac prologic II and audio track 2 shows none in the first column and ac3 in the second. The rest of the line is greyed out.

I think track 1 has to be aac for iTunes to recognise it. My Apple TV is connected to my amp via hdmi and the ac3 track is just passed through to the amp by the ATV.

Update on my syncing dilema. I found the audio on the original had no delay required so why the problem? The audio is about a second in front even with the AC3 track extracted from the original TrueHD.

Is there anyway I can put a manual delay in TsMuxer if I can work out the required amount. The BD is The Dark Knight

It depends on what audio is on the original BD. If it has a 640kb Dolby track I use TSMuxer to remove any other tracks (just leaving the video and 640 DD track) and save an m2ts file which I take into Handbrake.

If it has DTS audio, I use TSMuxer to demux the video and English DTS audio into separate tracks and then use eac3to to convert the audio to DD 640kb and then mux the new audio track and the video to an m2ts in TSMuxer again.

It's a bit long-winded, not as neat a solution as using Ripbot but it's the only way I know of getting DD to play on my Apple TV.

Without. It was still good with the fixclpi but chapter search seemed slower. FF/RW was as before as with without fixclpi.

If ripbot produced results without fixclpi then people would have a choice to use fixxlpi manually if they need it. I suspect fixclpi works differently on what player the person has. I borrowed a Samsung 1500 for a week and ff/rw has always worked on it since I have been using ripbot 1.10.0.

I think I wil remux a BD I have done already with the cont sps setting and see what happens. A 5 minute clip is not really long enough as I want to see what it is like for longer period of time.

@Atak_Snjapera

Up to now I have never tested if FW or RW was working after a BD movie was run through RipBot to make a DVD-9 (BD9) version of it. It had only been important for me that the chapter skip works both for forward or reverse.

All playback tests conducted on a Panasonic BD30 and BD35 player

So I tested the last movie run with RipBot v1.13.3 to now also check FW and RW – Results:

Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- but RW not working as the movie restarts from the very beginning

Now I’ve also run your requested tests:

01-- SEI/SPS -- No fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
01-- SEI/SPS -- With fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
02-- SEI—No fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
02-- SEI—With fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
03-- SPS—No fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
03-- SPS—With fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
04—NONE —No fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK
04—NONE —With fixclip – Results:
Chapter skip Fw and Rw OK -- FW OK -- RW OK

In summery I cannot detect any differences between clip 01 – 04 both with and without fixclip.

I will now also run the same movie that the RW does not work on when run through RipBot again but this time through BD_RB v0.20.02b and so what the results are.

1.46GB = 1495MB but I would do it less at around 1.4GB/1430MB to make sure it doesn't get too big for the disc.

According to this page (http://www.osta.org/technology/dvdqa/dvdqa6.htm), there are 1,463,386,112 bytes in a miniDVD, therefore the number of megabytes is 1,463,386,112/1,048,576(number of bytes in a MB)=1395.59375MB

Since Atak has rounded down from 4482+ to 4480, and 8152 to 8150, if I were you I'd try rounding down to 1393 or 1394.

P.S. To be absolutely precise about your particular media, you should look at what ImgBurn has to say about its precise capacity in bytes, then divide by 1,048,576 as above. :)

Update some asm copyright headers

Vastly faster SATD/SA8D/Hadamard_AC/SSD/DCT/IDCT

Similar performance boosts in SATD-like functions (SA8D, hadamard_ac) and somewhat less in DCT/IDCT/SSD.
Overall performance boost is up to ~15% on 64-bit Conroe.

One Question

Does Ripobot calulate the M2TS Overhead when using Bluray/AVCHD ouput with locked Filesize (2pass VBR) ?

Problem
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1258813#post1258813

Looks correct including M2TS/Bluray output:

Megui calculates for a 1h36m7s 25Fps 44kbps AC3 = 6067Kbps for MKV Container
Ripbot calulates 6057kbps for mkv and 5728 for Bluray Output.

So the Overhead is calulated :)

Hello. I'm new to the forum here and new to ripbot. I've been using ripbot to make some BD5s for ps3 and bluray standalones using the bluray option in ripbot. I take a 720p mkv file, load it in, set lock size to 4450, use two-pass, level 4.0, try always to keep the video bitrate over 4,000 for 720 BD5s. The question I have is, is there a Dummy's Guide for optimum settings for ripbot while making BD5 and BD9 movies? I've searched the forum here and can't seem to find any newbie guide to using ripbot. Here are the settings I currently use that a friend told me to use, but could I tweak these settings even more? I'm not sure what each setting does. Again, I'm a newbie to x264 encoding, treat me gentle...

Do you know better method for 64bit encoding????????64-bit Avisynth?Why is so fast Ripbot compared with MeGUI or Automkv ? In pass 1 I have 100 fps in Ripbot and 50 fps in Automkv.Different encoding settings? Newer x264?

64-bit Avisynth?
will you port all required plugins to 64bit? Yadif , TDecimate and so on ...

@bigggt
try different mpeg-2 decoder

thanks Atak_Snajpera

I already tried both of them listed under mpeg2 , but i will try again to be sure

did the sample work for you

edit-just tried with different encoders and same results

i figured it would be something on my end, its just weird how it works by only changing the version of ripbot

how do you calculate bitrate filesize in ripbot? I see where it lets you put in locksize but where does it tell you the bitrate?

n/m It's in the dropdown next to the 2 pass mode (have to change to 2 pass from CQ).

no help for me as it does not calculate for True-hd only ac3 640 bit...also when i import truehd tracks it gives me a floating point error.

I decided to try RB Builder for the first (was 20.2). I used The Dark Knight that has caused me so much problems with ripbot. The end results are perfect doing movie only with AC3 5.1 and subtitles. I can rewind and fast forward and best of all the audio is in sync. I never got that with ripbot 1.13.0 -1.13.3. Also, it was considerably faster -

BD-B
1st pass - 14 hours
2nd pass - 44 hours

Ripbot
1st pass - 24 hours
2nd pass - 70 hours

Holy Cow--- what processor/OS/RAM cfg ??
iam Q6600 (2.4Ghz)/Vista 32bit/4gigs DRAM2 PC8500

i get encodes RipBot:
8-12hrs for 8.5gig BD9
14-20hrs for 25gig BD-R

when i did RockNrolla -> BD9
w/ BD-Rebuilder v20.02 at High Quality (default) = 7.33hrs
Quality setting is probably lower than RipBot

That is 1080p. If I use 720p then in takes about 8 hours 1st pass and 22 hours for 2nd pass.

I'm going to repost my original question as I got no answer from anyone.....if there is something wrong with this question, please tell me what's wrong with it, or direct me to the correct place for this question. I appreciate it.

Hello. I'm new to the forum here and new to ripbot. I've been using ripbot to make some BD5s for ps3 and bluray standalones using the bluray option in ripbot. I take a 720p mkv file, load it in, set lock size to 4450, use two-pass, level 4.0, try always to keep the video bitrate over 4,000 for 720 BD5s. The question I have is, is there a Dummy's Guide for optimum settings for ripbot while making BD5 and BD9 movies? I've searched the forum here and can't seem to find any newbie guide to using ripbot. Here are the settings I currently use that a friend told me to use, but could I tweak these settings even more? I'm not sure what each setting does. Again, I'm a newbie to x264 encoding, treat me gentle...

One more question :
Why does Ripbot open Mpeg2/AVC TS /M2TS Files not with DGIndex/DGAVC ? Ripbot always opens TS/M2TS with a Directshow Decoder ?
Or is the indexing the next Step after the File is open in Ripbot?

DGavcDec has to use old version of libavcodec due to some regressions made in later builds. However latest libavcodec in ffdshow (directshowsource) has no problem with interlaced material (AVCHD camcorders use MBAFF or something like that. I've forgotten)

Indexing in general is useful only when you need frame accurate access.

hello i have a feature request/suggestion for the author of ripbot

would it be possible for you to add an option that allows us to name the audio and video streams

currently it only says GPAC ISO Audio Handler
when you could name it something like English 5.1 AAC 320Kbps

thanks

You could pre-process the files to a new BD structure. Then put the new files through Ripbot. It make a extra step but look at clown_BD. It will show all the playlists and you should be able to select individual episodes. It will then automatically use eac3to/tsmuxer to create a new BD structure for you. Put this in ripbot.

http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=25818

Thanks, nwg. I guess I could just demux the individual movie streams, and I am certainly not complaining about Atak's system because it is great for those pesky BDs that have the main movie spread among multiple streams :) I just like RipBot so much better than Handbrake.

Nice post.
Which one would I chose to encode a BR to MKV (m2ts -> ts -> mkv) with autocrop enabled? I'd love to have a good quality using an average bitrate of 10000 kbis/s for the video.
What would I check or uncheck on settings screen?
I am a bit confused with all the possibilities there.
File will be played on a popcorn hour or western digital hd tv media player.


And any idea how long a job would take with this config:

Q6600 @ Stock
5GB RAM
Windows Server 2008 Enterprise 64Bit
1TB Samsung HDD and 250GB Samsung HDD.

Another question: Does selecting CQ result in a singlepass encoding or is it 2 pass aswell?

I've installed v1.13.3 & trying to encode a h.264 .ts file (to Blu-ray, BD9 size) ripped from my cable box using the Hauppage HD PVR...I'm using Windows 7 64-bit on a i7 Quad Core w/6GB of RAM...I've never had this problem before & was unsure what to do...has anyone seen this?

I've encoded about 200 movies to 1080p using RipBot (generally, as soon as a new version has come out I'll update it) & have well over a 90% success rate...occasionally, I have had a few issues...I have seen some problems w/rips from my cable box using version 1.13.0 & 1.13.2...for those, I usually use 1.12.0 & they come out fine...figured I would try the newer version w/those rips & see what happened...today, I actually got one to finish (even though I got the avs2yuv.exe has stopped working message at around 97% completion of pass 2) it started muxing & then finished...I briefly checked it before going to work & it looked good...very strange...I am unsure about the avs2yuv.exe utility or what exactly it does

remove any codec packs first.

go back to scratch and remove hali, ffdshow, and avisynth .

then reinstall avisynth and ffdshow, latest versions.

see how that goes.

I had this before when x264 would crash yet ripbot didnt realise and just thought it had finished...

Hi

I don't have any codec pack's installed at all, so I will try to reinstall the one you mentioned. I just find it odd that this happend.

By the way, the x264 app that is in the tools folder of the RipBot folder, is it OK to replace them with a newer version or will that cause any problems?

best to get it all up and running before you go switching out the x264 exe just to make sure all works well. i dont think there is a problem with switching though, assuming there isnt a major revision which has has a revised input structure/settings.

ive had a similar problem, it was when i didnt have the correct decoder settings.

try it with something simple like an xvid+mp3 avi and make sure ffdshow is decoding it all correctly.

Hi

I want to remux all my blu-rays to store on an external hard drive and was wondering, if i take the .mkv file and the audio file from ripbot temp and join them with mkvmerge

would this be the same as doing it myself through eac3to

i assume it is but the reason i ask is i tried this with saw3( i hate this file, giving me nothing but trouble)and when i load the remuxed mkv into ribpot i get an error

Directshowsource:Renderfile, the filter graph won't talk to me

thanks

In v1.13.3 when opening any AVI I get this error message:
AviSource: Could not decompress frame 0
(D:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)

Line 2 of said AVS has this:
video=OpenDMLSource("E:\Video\Movies\name.avi",audio=false).ConvertToYV12()

I ended up remuxing them as MKV's and that worked out fine, but it would be a chore to do every time.

Also, would it be possible to include the ability to add multiple files at the same time and apply the same settings to all of them?

I must admit I had the same problem 2 or 3 times. Most likely AVI was corrupted.

Dear Atak_Snajpera,

Hi i've been using your program with much pleasure! But i have a request is there a way that your can input a mode so you can select the font type, font size and subtitle placement for the subtitle(s).
A bit like in tsmuxer, now we have to use multiple programs to do this.

Thanks already!

Dear Atak,

I don not need it. It would be just very easy if it can do this..
Now i have to convert the movie file with ripbot, then use Tsmuxer to put in the subs. Wich can do these for ya.

Your program does not let you choose with fonttype, font size or font placement for the subtitles.

We don't need it it is just very easy if ripbot can do these things too! Then you only have to use one program.

Apologies about that but i deleted the full encode, But since i have done a full blu ray with BD Rebuilder and the same pixelation occurs it appears i have a codec conflict somehwere as i only have the latest FFdshow and Coreavc 1.9 installed on my system.

Can you explain how you convert these apple trailers.

I have quicktime pro and export the trailer to mp4 using video and audio passthrough but mediainfo reports the resolution as odd and I think its because apple removes the black bars.

Here is the mediainfo for this file, can someone suggest a way to convert this using ripbot so that its compliant H.264 for AVCHD.

Atak - I have been using Ripbot264 on my Vista x32 PC for a while and it has worked flawless. I have been having some issues with my PC of late so I am thinking of doing a clean reinstall of Vista. For my HTPCs I use Vista x64, so I was thinking of replacing x32 with x64 on my PC as well. Before I do that though, I know some programs that work on x32 have problems on x64. Will ripbot work on x64 for me (i.e. if it will only work on x32 then I will just reinstall x32 as I need ripbot :D ). Thanks

@dbone1026,

I've used the same unzipped folder of RipBot264 with both x32 and x64 operating systems. You shouldn't have any problem, but you may have to edit the .ini file to: CheckRequiredSoftware=0. It sometimes has a problem detecting my ffdshow installation. You'll also probably see a bit of a speed increase due to RipBot's use of the 64bit version of x264.

I know that ripbot has the x64 version of x264 codec. So I imagine that there is no problem cause it seems to work flawlessly.:D
