Help! What's happening please?

I have just installed the latest version using Ajax's installer and on my first job, just before I get to the configuration screen Media Player Classic pops up with the following message: DirectShowSource : Timeout waiting for graph to start. (J:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)

Can someone advise what the problem is please?

Hey I just found this program BDSup2Sub v1.9 and it works great in conjunction with RipBot264 to get subs working. You must have Java installed. It is very fast and also supports commandline so maybe it could be added as a tool in RipBot264.

Heres a link: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=145277

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. :)


Thanks for that - I will go for 1390 to be on the safe side! :thanks:

i started getting error right after reinstalling win 7. i installed ffdshow , haali splitter and avisynth. then ran ripbot264 and i getting directshow error. however i got an error when doing bourne ultraim blu-ray but it works fine with converant blu-ray. bourne ultraim video is vc-1 and converant is mpeg2.
i can use ripbot with bourne with vista just not win 7.

Can you post the log. It should be in the log folder inside the folder that ripbot264 is installed. (ie ripbot264\logs\Log.log) (Ill bet it a security problem with Win7.) Are you running the latest build or the beta.

It might have something to do with the patched UAC...

Since i cannot send you the log.log because there isn't a log when i got the message. but i can send you the getinfo.avs and video-log.log file to see what is wrong with it. I installed windows 7 build 7057 right now. this is when i got the same error msg " DirectShowSource : Timeout waiting for graph to start. (J:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)." when i try to encode again.

i dont know if it is true, i just tried another vc-1 movies. Ripbot still say the same error msg about Directshow. is there anyway i can fix the error msg for vc-1.


this is this what is inside the avs file:

video=DirectShowSource("F:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv",audio=false).ConvertToYV12()
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\RipBot264v1.13.3\tools\AviSynth plugins\NicAudio\NicAudio.dll")

vc-1 decoding should work even without ffdshow because Vista and Windows 7 have microsoft's decoder installed by default.

I just started using Ripbot and imho it's the best tool among all the conversion tools I have tried. Thanks for this great application :)

And if I might ask a question, I noticed that when ffdshow isn't the h264 decoder with the highest priority (I'm using the DivX decoder), then the framereate-detection fails. Just wanted to know if this behavior is intended. It's no big issue. And thanks again!

Ok, I have encountered some problem with the aspect ratio of a .mkv file I transcoded. The transcoded file has a wrong aspect ratio. I converted a h264 AC3 .mkv with softsubs to an AAC 2.0 h264 High4.0 profile .mp4.

Playing the original file in MPC HC ffdshow shows these values:

704x480, SAR: 213/176, DAR: 71/40

The job log shows the following two lines:

x264 [info]: 704x480 @ 23.98 fps
x264 [info]: using SAR=1/1

Playing the resulting file in MPC HC ffdshow results in:

704x480, SAR: 1/1, DAR: 22/15

I'm by no means an expert in this, but my guess would be that the original file seems to have some strange 22:15 resolution, which is stretched by the player to 16:9 because of some flag/information in the .mkv. And while converting maintains the resolution, it kills the aspect ratio.

While I realize that ripbot features the setting "Size" in the "Properties" menu where my setting was "Do not resize" and the resolution is actually the same, it makes me wonder whether .mp4 can't handle the "it's actually 16:9" Information or some kind of error on my/ripbot's side. With that in mind, shouldn't maintaining the original aspect ratio be more important then maintaining the resolution?

But I admit, that keeping the aspect ratio and omitting the information of 704*84 pixels (since the corresponding 16:9 resolution would be 704*396 instead of 704*480) seems like it's not the best deal either. So is there no way out, like e.g. the way it's handled in the original .mkv just as .mp4?

Atak_Snajpera

@Killerattacks
select 720x480 under size and everything should be ok. Your resolution is not DVD-NTSC standard resolution. Correct sar values are only applied for 720x576 , 720x480 ,1280x1080 and 1440x1080. Rest is treated as 1:1.

Your resolution is not DVD-NTSC standard resolution

IIRC 704x480 is a valid resolution for dvd.

heres what it says on wiki: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mpeg2

The DVD standard uses MPEG-2 video, but imposes some restrictions:

* Allowed Resolutions

720 × 480, 704 × 480, 352 × 480, 352 × 240 pixel (NTSC)
720 × 576, 704 × 576, 352 × 576, 352 × 288 pixel (PAL)

The resizing trick worked! But now I noticed other issues. I guess I have no luck with video encoding...
I transcoded two different files. The first one is just 1 minute long (h264,2.0 AAC, .ass subtitles). In the resulting .mp4 the audio and subtitles are slightly off. The subtitles (dis-)appear a little bit to early. Same goes for the sound.
The other file is a 50 minutes long (h264, ac3, .ass subtitles) video, also transcoded to .mp4. Audio and subtiles are in sync but appear way to early. In the original the first spoken dialogue is at 01:10 (with the corresponding subtitle) but in the .mp4 it's at 00:23. As I said, subs and audio are in sync, but not with the video. Another strange thing: MPC HC shows a running time of 50:55 for the .mkv and the transcoded .mp4 shows only 50:08. strange.

Encoding was always set to .mp4, AAC 2.0, 1-pass CFR H264. Done on Vista buisness 64. I had the CCCP installed but deinstalled it in regards to the first post in this topic. I installed the latest ffdshow and haali media splitter manually.

I'd like to second that request! I know it seems like a small thing, but it would make a big difference in ease of usability. White against pale blue really doesn't provide very good contrast. :)

Atak,

I am thinking about buying a PS3 for my next Blu-ray player and have a qouple questions. I read somewhere in hear that you own a PS3 and was wondering if you are able to stream blu-rays to it. If so, are you able to toggle the subtitles on/off or do they have to be burnt into the stream.

I have a home server with about 100 Blu-rays in .iso format and am looking for some type of streamer that will allow me to toggle subtitles on/off. I need this for my wife, she is hearing impaired.

Thanks :D

I have a small observation to report here, don't know if its been said before. When I'm converting wide screen videos for my psp, it seems if I go to change the resolutions, they are a bit off. For example, for the PSP, it has a selectable resolution of 480x270 when the actual PSP screen resolution is 480x272.

480x272 is not correct 16:9 resolution and PSP ALWAYS removes two bottom lines!

Hi,

I was wondering if anybody else is having a problem doing two movies on que? Everytime i try and do two movies overnight the second one always fail. The first movie is perfect. When i do the second movie by itself, it works perfect. Happens to me on both of my computers. One is a Phenom x2, the other is a core i7 both with vista 64, and with the latest ffdshow, avisynth, and Haali Media Spliter. I have no codec packs installed. I have attached the log. Something about enoder errors which only happens when doing two movies.
Thanks

Ok, I noticed something strange. Like I said the file shows 50:55 in MPC HC. That is the actual length. The transcoded file (via ripbot264) is 50:08. The difference is 47 seconds. Now take a look at the chapters list in the mediainfo log below. it says:

1 : 00:00:00.000 - Cellphone Reminder
2 : 00:00:00.000 - Chapter 1
3 : 00:02:21.700 - Chapter 2


But when I play the file Haali media splitter shows:

http://img8.imageshack.us/img8/8377/haalikara.png (http://img8.imageshack.us/my.php?image=haalikara.png)

Notice the starting time of the first chapter. It's 00:46. And the first 46 seconds of the original file (the "Cellphone Reminder" chapter) contain actually only video, no audio or subtitles.

Now I'm no expert at this, but I thought that maybe it's related to Matroskas linking feature, magically embedding the first 46 seconds from another file. But even if I turn this option off in the haali splitter and open the file with WMP (or MPC HC) they both show 50:55 as runtime.

Seems to me like the encoder of the original mkv shifted the audio/subtitle-stream by the length of the first chapter.
But seems like that is not all... the video in the transcoded version at 50:08 is somewhere around 49:58~50:00. Seems like everything is messed up.

I guess that's the result of the tenthousands of things you can do with .mkv. In theory it's all nice but when you start working with it, it's all messed up. Seems like I won't re-encode any files in the near future :)

What encoder did you use to create this weird mkv?

21st March 2009, 22:03
@ Killerattacks i think you have a VFR mkv...

do this:

in haali installation folder you will find mkv2vfr.exe (you can use windows search to locate the folder!)...copy your .mkv to this folder...open a command promt and run this command line:

mkv2vfr.exe my_mkv.mkv my_avi.avi my_timecodes_v1.txt

post the content of the .txt file here...

RipBot seems pretty cool. I currently use handbrake but handbrake needs an extra step to do bluray. One thing I would love to see in ripbot:

For the apple TV, it accepts 2 audio tracks, a AAC track and an ac3 track. This technically isn't supported by the mp4 standard wrapper, but the apple tv plays them back. I believe the ac3 track needs to be the second audio track. Any chance this could be added? Seems silly to have a apple tv preset without supporting the apple tv's ability to do ac3.

Killerattacks
21st March 2009, 22:58
thanks for your help Atak_Snajpera and b66pak. Finally found the reason for the problem. The chapters in the original .mkv were messed up, but for some reason this doesn't affect any player during playback (guess we have to thank Haali for this) so I presumed that the file was ok and therefore the reencoding had to be the problem.

I'm sorry for taking up your time and trying to blame the problem to ripbot. Won't happen again. And a little anecdote at the end: While the file with the messed up chapters plays just fine with Haali's Splitter in video players as mentioned before, mkv2vfr.exe (by Haali too) created an .avi without the very first chapter :)

Is it possible to add the subtitles that are soft subbed on a mkv video when converting by a way other than having to extract the subtitles first from the mkv file? Doesn't seem you can select the subs inside the mkv file when converting.

First Atak your're a god! Thx for this powerfull tool! :thanks:

But I have a simple problem in converting my blu-ray-movie. I've installed all the tools, and ripbots exits the process without any error. But the final movie has no sound. VLC tells me, that their is no soundtrack.

I think, the solution is only one click in ffdshow or in the other tools, but dont know where to click in the settings.

Can you Atak oder somebody help me?
Perhaps theire is a install guide for the tools ffdshow, Haali Media Splitter and Avisynth in this forum?

Thx

What version TSmuxeR do you recommend using? Can we just upgrade to the newest versions as they come out? I've not been able to get a AVCHD disk to play on my Sony BDP-300. It does have the latest firmware. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the MKV files I have being cropped to be non standard or what. It does reconize as an AVCHD disk but just sits there and won't play. Any help would be appreciated. :thanks:

@ Atak_Snajpera,

Do you have any plans to allow an option to incorporate neuron2's DGAVCIndexNV, DGMPGIndexNV, etc to RipBot264? I currently use the tools with RipBot264 by avs script, but if you have multiple files it often crashes CUVIDserver.exe (at least in my case). The other issue I have when I import an avs script is that I can't use the auto cropping feature. If you don't have plans to incorporate the tools as an option (which would be understandable), maybe someone else that reads this might be able to solve the minor issues I'm having when I use the tools with RipBot264. Neuron2's tools and your use of 64bit X264 really help in the speed dept. Thanks for all you hard work on RipBot264.

Two main problems:
1) I have Ati card. To do tests I would have to run to friend living floor above.
2) These tools are not free. Since I have Ati card I see no reason to spend money for those apps.

Completely understandable. Hopefully someone else who uses the tools also uses RipBot264 and knows how to get around the issues I mentioned previously.

The last couple of times I tried using RipBot, I ran into a problem. (It's been a while since I used it, forgive me if I'm vague)...after the menu where you choose the video and the audio, and all that, and RipBot starts analyzing, a message pops up and says something about there being no audio. The first time this happened, I restarted my computer and ran RipBot again and I didn't get the error. The last time I ran into this problem, I tried restarting, but the problem persisted each time. The movie was Eagle Eye.

Also, I have done 3 successful rips...Hellboy 2 converted to 1280 x 720 went from 26gb from the original file down to 4.8gb. Open Season 2 converted to 1280 x 720 went from 21gb from the original down to 2.xgb. Both took between 8 ~ 10hrs. However, The Italian Job took about 24 hrs. and went from around 20-something gb down to only 18gb. Why was this movie different? Is it because The Italian Job was an MPEG-2 bluray?

Hello, Atak

(my first post) I've been using ripbot264 for a few weeks now. It's easy to use and simplifies the many tasks I used to do manually with avisynth, eac3to, tsmuxer, etc.

While ripping/demuxing BD titles with and without your tool, I've had several instances of A/V sync loss and/or unknown delay values. How do you go about finding the audio delay value, other than trial and error? Sometime MediaInfo will report a delay value, other times it will not. Often the reported delay value is wrong. Sometimes I think I've found the right value, and after the process is done, the sync if off again. Sometimes ripbot's analysis via eac3to will report the file being 60000/1001 while MediaInfo says it's 29.970. Which one is right? I have many, many questions, but that's enough for now. Thank you.

This may or may not be a Ripbot issue, but thought I would post incase anyone has some insight. My desktop PC is Vista x32 w/Quad Core CPU. I have been using Ripbot for quite some time now to convert my Blu Ray/HD DVDs into 8GB mkvs. My settings are Profile 4.0, 2Pass, 8150MB Size Lock, and original audio. This has always taken me approx 10-12 hours to do a conversion (about 2 hours on the 1st pass and 8-10 hours on the 2nd pass) and the mkvs have always been flawless (hats off to atak).

I just recently did a clean reinstall of Vista x32 on my PC. I reinstalled the latest version of ffdshow tryouts, avisynth, and Haali. Using the same settings as before on Ripbot for a Blu Ray movie, it took me about twice as long to do (about 4 hours on 1st pass and nearly 20 hours on 2nd pass). Once the mkv was complete, I tested out the movie. There is now a green line along the entire bottom of the movie. Also, the picture looks all messed up, where there is a reflection of everything.

A couple other weird things are now happening. Now, none of my mkvs play properly in MPC-HC or WMP, they are either pixelated or out of sync. Yet when I play the same mkvs in Vista Media Center or SageTV that look and play perfect. Any clue what is going on, Ripbot is obviously telling me something is wrong...

I'd like to "third" the enhancement request put forward by Blobbyblob and Mary H...
A small request please .. could you make the chatacters on the bottom that show the progress of the encode a different colour. I find that with my old eyes a little more contrast helps a lot.
With the white-on-light blue, I've found myself having to move my head around the monitor to get the right angle on the LCD screen to see the progress indicator. Adjusting the text to a darker blue, perhaps slate color would probably keep within the color schemes of the program while affording better readability. :)

Otherwise, Ripbot is working great so far!

Correct me if I'm wrong but I suspect that your source is VC-1. Try to disable or enable VC-1 decoding in FFDshow. It looks like decoder problem. It would be easier if you could send me 50MB sample. Use DGSplit and www.mediafire.com

A couple other weird things are now happening. Now, none of my mkvs play properly in MPC-HC
Do you have internal decoders enabled in MPC-HC or disabled? (I prefer decoding via FFDshow+Haali instead of internal filters)

Ok. I will use dark grey/blue next time. However I have two a questions. is Your monitor gloss or mat? Do you use DVI or VGA cable?
I have no problems to read white letters on blue background. I have mat LCD connected via DVI cable.

Yes, the movie is VC-1. When I installed FFDShow when it asks for the video formats to decode with ffdshow I unchecked H.264/AVC and VC-1. I then registered MPC Video Decoder so I could get hardware acceleration when watching my movies in VMC/SageTV.

I am at work right now, I might be able to remote in to my server so I can get you over a sample of the mkv. If not I will send it over later today. Thanks atak.

Atak - thanks for the consideration on the font colors!

I use a matte LCD attached via DVI as well. With the correct angle, I can see the text OK... however if there is any hint of glare (which is diffuse due to the matte screen), or if the LCD isn't at the 100% perfect angle to my eyes, the text becomes a challenging to read. The light background blue (and the underlying texture) conspire to make it tough to read sometimes.

Again, thanks.

I know its something on my system but have no idea what it is, i have tried different versions of ffdshow with the same result

i don't think it has anything to do with ffdshow because the same version works with ripbot 1.11.5.

I'm about to buy a new PC and was wanting to install the latest 64 bit Windows 7 beta on it, before I go down this route and make a very expensive mistake can I just check that Ripbot264 works fine on the 64bit version of Windows 7? I've read that Windows 7 prevents stuff like Haali Media Splitter and FFDShow being used, is that correct and if so how do you get around it? Basically at the moment I'm using ToNMT with AnydvdHD to rip my blu-ray discs and Ripbot264 to re-encode them, all I want is confirmation that I'll still be able to do that if I move to Windows 7 64 bit.

Thanks

If you are lucky you can still find Q6600. It should not be very expensive. It works without problems at 3Ghz! I highly recommend this cpu!!!

False! Everything works well. AviSynth , FFDshow and Haali.

You will still need to buy a new motherboard for your AMD (AM2+) and in order to get the full benefit of such processor it require a new Deck of Ram and you would need to find one that had you current Video config (ie ATI or Nvidia).

Usually when I am looking to upgrade I just build A new System. It seems to be cheaper that way.:rolleyes:

Hi.

I uninstalled K-lite codec pack as recommended and am just using FFDSHOW and HAALI. Ripbot264 seems to be working fine. Great Program, Thanks.

One thing however that i have noticed is that not as many of my video files now generate thumbnails. Previously all my .m2ts and .ts blu-ray rips plus .MKV files would show thumbnails in explorer but since uninstalling K-Lite they are no longer working.
Am I missing a setting in FFDSHOW to get my thumbnails back. I turned the thumbnail option on in HAALI but it doesn't seem to have made a difference.

Thanks for any help.

Yea.. I tried manual but it does't work either, it keeps resetting the size setting to "Do not resize" but I do want it to resize to 720p.
OHHHH MYYY GOOOD!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU SET CROP SETTINGS MANUALLY AND THEN 720p?!??!?!?!?!?

Hey guys, sorry if it's been asked before, tried googling but didn't find any help: Automatic Crop doesn't seem to work when resizing. I want to encode a blu-ray source to 720p, and use automatic crop to remove black bars, but the output ends up either stretched, or with black bars. Please help :thanks:

The order in which you do things is important. THis is what works for me, every time:

1. Choose Automatic cropping. Let it do its thing.

2. Below that, Choose HD Ready, 1280x720.

3. Then, and only then, choose Custom. It should come up with 1280 by whatever is appropriate for the movie with black bars removed and the correct aspect ratio. (from step 1) For instance, 1280 x 540. (the height varies from one movie to another.)

4. Click on Preview to see if your movie's aspect ratio looks right. You'll still see black bars in the preview, but they won't be included in your finished movie.

5. Encode.

1. Choose Automatic cropping. Let it do its thing.
Autocrop may not work well for dark movies

2. Below that, Choose HD Ready, 1280x720.
Choose that if you want blu-ray compatible video or select Custom with fixed aspect ratio ( for example Custom [2.35:1])

Feature request :

When you finish selecting the audio/video an "add" button near the done one would be nice.

Why ? well if i want to render "normal" then 4-5 resized versions i have to add the video and audio 5 times, this way i can add a lot of jobs with the same video/audio.

What do you think ? can it be done ? would you consider adding it ?

I have a PS3 and used the Blu-Ray output and put it into an AVCHD folder but it wouldn't work unless I manually went through and renamed all the files using 8.3 format.

Is there any option in RipBot to output the files using 8.3 format?
If not, would it be possible to add a checkbox or radio button for this?
i.e. you have the radio buttons for Save As: .MP4, .MKV, BLU-RAY DISC. If BLU-RAY DISC is selected, a checkbox for "AVCHD" or 8.3 filenames is enabled
OR could a 4th Radio Button "AVCHD" be added which means do the same thing as BLU-RAY DISC, but add the AVCHD folder and use 8.3 filenames?

Question: I used RipBot264 to encode a standard def (TV Show) DVD video to Blu-Ray DISC (MT2S)
If I played the MT2S file on my PS3 it played in High Def (1080i) with pillar boxes (just like the DVD would upscaled)
If I played the Blu-Ray DISC Image using AVCHD, my PS3 played the video in Standard Def (480i/p) Full Screen.

Why would it play the same file (MT2S) differently? Is there a way to specify in the BLU-RAY DISC image that I want it to play upscaled?

Is there a decombing filter (similar to Handbrake) in RipBot?

OHHHH MYYY GOOOD!!!!!! WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU SET CROP SETTINGS MANUALLY AND THEN 720p?!??!?!?!?!?

Thanks for the candid response :p

There are couple of issues here... First is, if I choose automatic crop + 720p and hit on preview, it shows black bars. I'm not sure if it means that preview isn't working right, or auto crop didn't crop right. If I switch to manual hit preview, and then switch back to automatic and hit preview, now it shows fine.

The other issue is, if I set manual first and then 720, and then try to adjust the top, bottom crop numbers, the size setting resets to "do not resize".

Even if I adjust manually all numbers, and at then choose 720, adjusting manually is bit painful because media player classic always shows black bars, so one has to resize the window's height to see if the black bars disappear or not.

Like Mary H mentioned, the order matters, so I also had the issue of selecting 720 first and then automatic crop, and that also resets the size.

Also another thing is that it'd be really nice if cropping were set always to "automatic" by default. I did a couple of encodes a few weeks ago and later realized that they weren't cropped and it was pretty painful :rolleyes:

The reason I'm outlining these is because I'm coming from Handbrake for Mac, where none of the issues above are present. Order doesn't matter, adjusting crop values doesn't reset the size, and automatic crop works fine pretty much all the time. Auto crop is on by default. Manual cropping in handbrake is easier because it's real-time, the preview window shows changes immediately as you increase/decrease pixels.

I was liking ripbot264 a lot but these issues are forcing me back to handbrake :(. It would be realllyyyy nice if these issues could be addressed, it'd make the experience much more transparent, especially for those of us that don't know all the quirks and stuff.

@atak...

small feature request. when selecting subtitles...it seems like I can only select .srt files and not .sup files directly, but your program converts the .srt files to a sup file. Can you add the feature of selecting a .sup file directly? I'd like to be able to select my resized .sup files (using the great program BDSup2Sub to resize from 1080 to 720 without having to ocr.) That way I can figure out what bitrate to use. If I use an ocr'd .srt to base my bitrate off...and then not use the srt file when muxing, I seem to have a lot of free space now. That's the reasoning I would like to be able to select the .sup file. Thanks.

DOH!!!

You're right. I checked before I posted but here's what happened.

I knew version 1.12 didn't do it...so I downloaded newest (1.13.something) and checked. Problem was I didn't have any bluray content on my laptop's hard drive and I was just about to go to sleep, so I didn't want to turn on my desktop. I had a family guy episode on my laptop so I selected that, and selected bluray as output. I tried to select subtitles but ripbot gave me an error that the video was not in the correct resolution for bluray. So I had to change the output to mkv. Then I was able to select subtitles but apparently when its in mkv output you cannot select .sup files. Anyways...ignore my previous feature request..thanks atak for your great program.

Atak,

I just recently tried to convert to .bluray, and it worked -- I guess -- but when I mounted it with PowerISO and played it back with WinDVD9, the video was stretched back to 16:9. When I tried to play it on my PS3, I got audio but no video. When I play just the .m2ts file with Windows Media Player, everything is perfect with the correct 2.40 aspect ratio. Any thoughts?

My first guess is that I should not have cropped the video. I am wondering if that screwed something up? Other than that, everything else is default: Profile is the [High 4.0] HD . Bluray . Consoles profile; audio is 2 channel AC3 192kbps; and target size is 4480MB. Please help!

Edit: I am pretty sure that was the problem. I will post my results after re-encoding WITHOUT cropping *sigh*

hi Atak!
thx for your cool program, it work great!

I'd like to ask you just one thing:

- is possible, when you start the encoding, to add a "Pause/Resume" Button?

it'd be really cool, so if someone have to do something then need more power can "pause" the
work and then "resum" it!

do you think its possible?
thx again! :)

So, I discovered that when you're converting to .bluray, you CANNOT crop the video like you might otherwise when outputting a .mp4 or .mkv file. This might be obvious to some, but I didn't even think about it until after I had video playback issues on the PS3.

If you intend to burn your completed .bluray job to a DVD or BD afterwards, DO NOT CROP the video...unless you just want to waste some time :)

I've use those settings above and it still doesn't work :( Perhaps I'm misunderstanding... should I choose size "Custom" instead? This is very confusing :(

Choose size 1280x720, then choose Custom. That's what I do, and it works fine. You'll wind up with a resolution of 1280 x [something like 544]... the program will decide.

Mary,

Is your suggestion for bluray or mkv and mp4? I do not believe that you can crop anything when converting to bluray (correct me if I am wrong).

unimatrix,

Are you trying to convert to bluray or just mkv/mp4?

Hey, I'm encoding into MKV... you may be right about blu-ray in which case it'd be nice if the GUI could warn the user somehow...

hi Atak!
thx for your cool program, it work great!

I'd like to ask you just one thing:

- is possible, when you start the encoding, to add a "Pause/Resume" Button?

it'd be really cool, so if someone have to do something then need more power can "pause" the
work and then "resum" it!

do you think its possible?
thx again! :)

Atak do you think this'll be possible in a near future?

I think you can use "process explorer" (software, downloadable at Microsoft) to do that. Generally hibernate will also work so you can turn your pc of during encoding.

I am attempting to use ripbot264, unsuccessfully. Wondering if I have botched the install or requirements.

Initial installation of ripbot264 when attempting to open m2ts sources would hit either 31 or 32% when demuxing then appear to hang. Twenty-four hours later no progress. Same sources work with Handbrake, tsMuxeR, etc. Format the box and install fresh Windows XP SP3, all MS patches, and RipBot264 and requirements. No change in behavior. Sought requirements and fulfilled them as best I understood.

Suggestions? What additional information can I provide?

I am probably not providing sufficient details to trouble shoot so feel free to direct me on how to create a debug or whatever. Attempted to search forum, honest, but didn't find anything. If I have missed the obvious, sorry.

Thank you.

Atak_Snajpera,

I love how the program has turned out. I was wondering if you would consider adding OGG and AC3 audio output to RipBot264's audio profiles. You see, I encode a lot of videos for playback on my Xbox via XBMC, however, AAC isn't the best option because it requires a lot more CPU to decode than OGG or AC3.

AC3 is the most preferred choice because it requires less than 2% of the Xbox's CPU... most of the time I just pass-thru the original AC3, but sometimes I have huge DTS files that I want to convert to down to a smaller AC3. In this case, it would be nice to do within RipBot's GUI. OGG is the next choice and uses roughly 6% CPU... so OGG is the preferred codec if I don't need all 6 channels of audio. And AAC is the last choice because it requires roughly 18-20% CPU to decode... and coupling AAC audio with H.264 video leads to a lot of stuttering!

Thanks.

thats'd be good if i can switch from "low priority" and viceversa,
so if i have to do something with my computer, i can tun on it, do what i have to do,
and then put it in high priority!

Thank you for responding!

Yes it is a blu-ray source without aacs (anyDVD), I can demux without issue from tsMuxeR and Handbrake. Tried several smaller m2ts from other blu-ray disks with the same results. I have never had Ripbot264 successfully demux *anything* which is why I am assuming I booboo'd.

Any ideas? Suggestions?

If you are wanting ac3 audio in an mp4 file to play on Apple TV then I think Handbrake is your only option. Apple TV needs 2 audio tracks to play AC3, the first a stereo aac track (can be low bitrate) and the second the AC3 track. The file needs to be saved as m4v. Unfortunately Ripbot is not able to do this yet.

Use BDInfo to locate the main movie. Pick the right m2ts file and Ripbot264 will do the rest.

What particular Blu-ray are you having issues with?

Determining the movie is not a problems, since I can play it back without issue prior to attempting to use RipBot264. Besides, it's HUGE so rather easy to spot. The two sources I have tried without success with RipBot264--remember tsMuxeR and Handbrake demux without issue, are Kung Fu Panda and RocknRolla. I have a few more in my library to try, but no reason to believe they will work, but will give them a try since I am just thrashing, anyway.

Anyone else have suggestions. *frustrated*

Of course I do, but since you were asking, I felt like I needed to validate it by showing you. Again, I can remove the aacs encryptioin without issue and play the m2ts without any further changes, however, I would like to use Ripbot264 to reduce size from the sources 18 to 20 GB, use with PS3 Media Server and PS3, HTPC, or whatever. I have been able to reproduce the problem using different sources from different workstations. There must be a common factor, but I am not seeing it. /don't point at me!/ Well, I could be doing something retarded. If so, enlighten me.

DO YOU REALLY THINK THAT OGG and AC3 are allowed in .mp4??!?! (However some claim that AC3 is supported in mp4)

Ya, sorry, I figured it out now. I didn't realize that you coded the program to limit the profiles based on which codec was selected... pretty smart of you! But ya, I'm positive that AC3 is supported in MP4 natively... and I just looked up info on OGG and found that it is not supported. So you might want to consider at least allowing for AC3 in MP4.

Oh, and is there any reason why 2.0 AC3 isn't supported? I've come across many videos that only contain a 2.0 audio track...

Thanks!

That did occur to me even if it was unusual to not show any progress after several hours. At the point "Demuxing selected streams... 32%" CPU Utilization is typically less than 1%. Only process I can attribute to RipBot264 is Ripbot264.exe and eac3to.exe of which both are at 0% CPU utilization. There was really no reason to leave it at this point, but I did. More than twenty-four hours the dialogue continues to display no further progress past 32% nor does the CPU show any increase in utilitzation.

I am sure it is going to be something silly, but I am willing to throw myself out here to be embarassed and get this bloody app to work. I am even OK with asking me questions like I am a neophyte, since clearly I do not know the solution.

Feel my pain?

History:
week and half trying different sources with consistent failures, using other applications without issue (tsMuxeR and Handbrake), trying a second workstation, pull down the installation packages to ensure the culprit is not a corrupted package, wiping a workstation to provide a clean and base build. failures continue and symptoms do not change. Post for help.

7th April 2009, 08:08
Ugh. Well, this may help in solving the mystery. After Ripbot264 stops processing (audio?) duing the 'Please wait.. Demuxing..' and I kill eac3to.exe process, ripbot264 moves forward to 'Gathering Information' and allows me to encode the m2ts to mp4. It's encoding as I post.

Any insight on why eac3to.exe may be 'hanging'? Is it hanging? Ugh. You get the idea.

Here is the log.txt, and I am selecting #2.

Check the folder where eac3to should demux/reencode the streams. It usually creates a log file with same name as the first stream it outputs. You can also try to demux/reencode the streams manually with eac3to to see if the problem actually lies with this program or has another cause.

would it be possible to add variable framerate to ripbot's options? I have a guide (for megui) from someone helping me out with a particular encode if it would help


This is the script I'm using for blahblahblah (avs);
(requires Avisynth (http://avisynth.org/mediawiki/Main_Page) installed, vfr mod of Decomb (http://webpages.charter.net/falconx/decombvfrmod.html) and megui (http://mewiki.project357.com/wiki/MeGUI) as encoder)
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\Decomb521VFR1.3_P4-Athlon.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\dgdecode.dll")
LoadPlugin("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\MaskTools-v1.5.8\MaskTools.dll")
Import("C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins\AntiAliasing.avs")

DGDecode_Mpeg2Source("C:\PL2\Vol1ep6\VTS_03_1.d2v")

Telecide(order=1,guide=0,vthresh=40,dthresh=5,blend=true,ovr="frames.ovr")
Decimate(mode=4,threshold=1.0,timecodes="timecodes.txt",vfrstats="vfrstats")

#DupMC(log="blah.dup1.txt")
DeDup(threshold=0.3, maxcopies=10, maxdrops=3, log="blah.dup1.txt", times="blah.times.txt", timesin="timecodes.txt")

AntiAliasing(th_luma=25, th_croma=25, aath=27)

In order:
DGDecode: Creates a d2v project file that refers directly to the vobs, so no need for imtermediate files, find it in MeGUI's Tools-folder(DGIndex/DGIndex.exe). Allows to encode only parts, but sometimes if you start with wrong frame it will cause bad frames/combing issues en masse even with sane settings, shift the "[" (starting position) with one or more frames and try again. Folder will also include the manuals for it;

d00 5 1 715522048 0 1 31 b2 b2 92 b2 b2 a2 b2 b2 a2 b2 b2 a2
d00 5 1 715776000 0 1 26 b2 b2 92 b2 b2 a2 b2 b2 a2 b2 b2 a2

d00 5 1 716460032 0 1 26 b2 b2 92 b2 b2 a2 b2 b2 a2 b2 b2 a2
etc...
Then you load it to an .avs with DGDecode_Mpeg2Source("C:\Path\insertname.d2v").

Telecide/Decomb: Will decide which frames to deinterlace, guides in the folder so look up the parameters. The mode above allows the encode to have both video (30000:1001) and film (24000:1001) after decimating. 'order: Unlike TFM (another deinterlacer) it doesn't automatically detect if the field order is 0 or 1, so if the encode (you can run the avs in most media players, just comment dedup/antialiasing/other intensive filters out (but not Telecide/Decimate, or the lines in the beginning)) has 'hacking' isssues even at sane settings try changing from 1 to 0 or vice versa...
The timecodes.txt will contain the timecodes, it is used either with DeDup below, or omitting that, it's the timecodes file to be muxed with the final encode/mkv...
Ovr is simply the overrides file, just set the threshold low enough for deinterlacing and you won't need this, otherwise there's a good explanation in the guide included in the zip...

Dedup (http://akuvian.org/src/avisynth/dedup/): (see the readme on that site) Doubtful how much use it would be with Macademi as it will hardly decrease a significant number of frames, but this is how it operates: (note; threshold determines how alike the frames must be to be considered duplicates, if set higher the less total frame number, but unique frames might be lost...)

You need two passes for this, for first pass have either only the first line in the avs, or comment the other by placing a '#' in front of it; (concerns only these two lines, leave Telecide/Decimate etc as is)
DupMC(log="blah.dup1.txt")
#DeDup(threshold=0.3, maxcopies=10, maxdrops=3, log="blah.dup1.txt", times="blah.times.txt", timesin="timecodes.txt")
blah.dup1.txt in this case will record the differences between all frames
But you don't want to actually encode this pass, so click 'encode analysis pass' in megui
(timesin will import the timecodes file from Decimate, and output a new one, blah.times.txt, to be muxed with the final encode/mkv...)

Now reverse that;
#DupMC(log="blah.dup1.txt")
DeDup(threshold=0.3, maxcopies=10, maxdrops=3, log="blah.dup1.txt", times="blah.times.txt", timesin="timecodes.txt")
...so it looks like the script like in the beginning and open it again in megui (to enable anamorphic encoding remember to adjust the screen in the megui preview window)
and you can finally start the encoding in megui :)

AntiAliasing (http://avisynth.org/mediawiki/AntiAliasing) One of many antialiasing filters, just don't set deblocking too low and you won't need this...
If you're interested, check the internal/external filters section on the Avisynth page, Macademi might perhaps benefit from a slight sharpening...

...I'm pretty sure I've missed some crucial bits of info, but I'll check back tomorrow after work so just send pms if you decide to try this and run into problems...


I realize parts of that don't have anything to do with just VFR, but I'm still learning avisynth, and wasn't sure what to trim out

Thank you for post.I am a command line newb- reason for using ripbot. Appreciate steps on how to test EAC3??

Running MEGUI on file(Dirty Harry) and working fine too

Odd?

Blender -
First thing I'd do is update to the latest release of EAC3to, if you haven't already.


Next, try this:

Open a CMD window (this is basically a DOS window)
Change to the drive and Ripbot directory (mine is C:\temp\RipBot264, so the command is "cd C:\temp\RipBot265"
Change to the Job1 (or Job2 or whatever job is hanging for you) The comamd is "cd job1"
Run the Blu-Ray_ExtractStreams.cmd file in that directory by just typing in "Blu-Ray_ExtractStreams.cmd".

You'll be able to see EAC3to in action and perhaps see where it is getting hung up.

...anyway, in low priority, i'm testing now, your program say this:

2-pass without low-priority (about 7/8 hours)

Hi.

I have the latest ripbot264 and ffdshow (beta6_rev2527_20081219), and ripbot will not detect ffdshow. I can get it to run by disabling the check, but I am wondering why it won't detect it.

The registry settings are there for ffdshow, I've tried unchecking the black list, and checking the whitelist adding ripbot264, but it still won't detect it at startup.

Anyting else I can check?

thanks,
john

2-pass without low-priority (about 7/8 hours)
2-pass with low-priority (about 11/12 hours)

So what? You better use google and read how priority works and then write anything.

dont worry!

"so what" you say?
lol (again)

tell me "you", what you mean with this ??:
i see that your knowledge about priority in windows is VERY LIMITED. You really don't know how some things work.

i was talking about to add a feature to the program and about using low priority and you write this "nice" phrase, for?

*sigh*

As I stated earlier with my problem using Ripbot264, it was going to be something silly.

First, how do I specify the temporary directory used to process? Not seeing where it is configurable. If this is not a current feature, love to see it added.

Ripbot264 appears to be looking for "temp" on the largest available (local?) volume. As such, when I have an external USB drive attached to my host, it is using it instead of my RAID 1 volume. That is a problem in itself.

So what is the problem? The external drive I am using has a sleep mode and other 'features.' None of them seem to be terribly useful. For some unknown reason, I do not pretend to completely grasp the problem, when Ripbot264 is using the external USB drive it halts during demuxing. Disconnect the drive and begin anew, it completes demuxing and creation of mpeg or mkv without further problem.

I am re-encoding my second source that was giving me difficulties, now, without issue thus far.

@Nurbs & Hyrax
Thank you. I have walked away from this with more knowledge about Ripbot264 then I started. Also, if you had not had me hunting for the temporary work directory, I may not identified Ripbot264 was using the external USB drive any time soon.

Thank you for the great tips. It appears Eac3 is hanging with error "Writing the destination file failed""

Screen shot attached.

I have tried on all three drives raid and otherwise, same problem.

I am very frustrated.

Problem solved. EAC3 will not write to 4k block size on my 6tb raid 5 volume. Moved temp file to a standard 512byte block size array and all is good. Back to tedious VC1 conversion for ps3.

ouch, look at all these replies, poor Atak...
all I can say is...calm down and cool down, it helps, sometimes...:P


anyway, I just found something that I called it a "bug"...
Let's say I add 4 videos and have it start encoding and then I abort on 3rd encoding for some reasons
the next time I click Start it would re-encode from the 1st video instead of 3rd one...

Is it normal?

Thanx again.

Atak, Thanks for your work on this project. Would you consider the ability to add in subtitles in the Vobsub (IDX/SUB) format to be merged into the final MKV? MKVMerge GUI can do this now, and it would save a step. Thanks!

I'm trying to convert a blu-ray rip to mkv and I'm having an issue.

If I select "5.1 Aften AC3" for the output audio then start the job, Ripbot sits there at "Please Wait... Initializing..." and goes no further. I have to abort, and unfortunately this does not create a Ripbot job1_log.txt file.

If I select "xx COPY STREAM xx" (the audio from the Blu-Ray is "DTS Master Audio"), Ripbot finishes within a second, obviously not creating the .mkv file. In the job log, I get this:

The "Line 43" error is from the following lines in job1.avs:

Either way, I can't get this rip to encode. I'm using Ripbot 1.13.3 on Windows 2008 x64, ffdshow 2857, Haali Media Splitter 1.9.42.1, and AviSynth 2.5.8. I do have UAC turned off in Windows 2008, and I'm running Ripbot as Administrator.

If I had my choice, I'd rather use Aften 5.1 AC3 for audio, but if anyone can solve either issue I'd be happy.

I have waited as long as an hour for the encode to start, but it still sits there.


What did you do step by step?

For this particular movie, I chose the DTS master audio track, no subtitles. On the Edit Job screen, I'm choosing video profile 4.0, Copy Stream for audio, CQ 18 for compression, and ENG as the language. I then name the .mkv file, click Done, then hit start at the Jobs screen.

I'm going to try and find another one of my Blu-Ray discs that uses DTS Master audio to see what happens with encoding.

Oh, one last thing...I have checked the ffdshow video decoder configuration several times, and even though I set VC-1 to libavcodec, something keeps setting it back to disabled! I do keep setting it back, but I don't know if this has anything to do with my issues.

For VC-1 FFDSHOW should be configured to wmv9 not libavcodec.

I don't think you can run 64 bit code from a 64bit codec in to a 32bit frame server like avisynth then back into a 64bit codec.

Suppose its hard enough to make 32bit avisynth go to 64bit x264. http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=144140 Though they managed to do it the speed increasing by only 10% is not enough to influence most developers to give a crap.

:D Look until your willing to build and maintain a working copy of 64bit avisynth and convince a load of other developers to rebuild their projects as 64bit. The whole ordeal would be to bothersome to do at the moment and otherwise a waste of time. It works right now as it sits. Your 64bit system will not suffer at all from running 32bit code.

P.S. the Developer of ripbot has only one project and its entirely contained in Ripbot264.exe and ini...;)

I have recently started creating batch queues in RipBot and have run into some rather bizarre behavior. RipBot will not complete all of the projects in the queue. In fact, most of the time it only does every other one. So if I have six projects queued, it will complete three.

What is really strange is that RipBot starts the projects, but stops after the audio encoding process. Unfortunately, I just cleaned out my log files so I can't attach one of the uncompleted projects for perusal. I know there is nothing wrong with the project itself because if I tell RipBot to retry the project it will complete it, but not necessarily when in a batch queue. I will run another batch tonight and attach a log file tomorrow.

I was just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and if there is a solution?

Thanks in advance.

For VC-1 FFDSHOW should be configured to wmv9 not libavcodec.

Which isn't very apparent. Took me a while to find this information too. Atak should add it to his first page post.

I was also searching for days trying to find why my long and tedious encodes would give me no video on my PS3 with perfectly fine audio. Turned out I had the reference frames up too high. I'm a nub and accidentally had the r-frames set to 5 with my 4.1 avc profile. Ooops, only wasted a few bd-rs before I looked at the log file and saw max supported frames warning LOL.

Great program though Atak, super-simple ui and all the options I need.

I see no reason. Ripbot always disables libavcodec for vc-1. (reason: lack of interlace support)

Ok. So I ran a batch of 4 items and once again the problem came up with RipBot "skipping" items in queue. I have attached log files showing the project that was not completed during the first pass thru my queue and then completed when I told RipBot to process the queue again.

I have experienced this on both of my Vista x64 systems and simply can't figure out what is causing it. None of my other encoding programs do this....

Something strange happens with the calculation when adding forced sups, but if the forced sup isn't added last it seems to calculate ok though.

no sups = 4503 kbps
1 sups = 4489 kbps
2 sups = 4479 kbps
3 sups = 4502 kbps (this is a forced sup)

loading forced sup first: 4503 / 4503 / 4475 / 4466

Currently I have a Q6700 at 3.33GHz and get about 9-10 FPS on second pass. If the i7s make a big difference there, I might take the plunge.

I am running an i7 920 @ 4ghz and seeing 1st passes upwards of 65fps on 1280 material. Second pass typically lands around 35fps. This is using the stock 4.0 profile.

This tool requires java. I need plain .exe command line app.

While it does require java runtime, I don't think is any bigger requirement then ffdshow and it's used many places on the web so for most I think it's a general app to install.

It does have a command line interface for example to resize all sups in D:\video to 720p you could use
java -jar bdsup2sub.jar D:\video\*.sup *-720.sup /res 720

Java is added to windows system path so it doesn't need to be pointed to in most situations but in some you might need to be able to find javaw.exe and use the full path before -jar

So I've finally figured out the odd issues where the encoding never starts, or when ripbot says an encode is completed within a second. For some reason, ripbot is not updating the job1.avs file within temp. When I'm initially on the "New Job" section, no matter what I do when I hit the Done button the job1.avs does not have the #Audiosource or #Audiodub sections populated.

However, if I click on the arrow next the Audio source, select none, then re-select the Audio source, I notice that ffdshow pops up in my tray. Immediately after, the job1.avs file does have the audio sections populated. I can then carry on with making all my audio, subtitle, and video quality settings, then select Done. So far I've been able to encode 2 movies successfully.

Does anyone know why job1.avs isn't being populated until I mess with those audio options?

19th April 2009, 16:04
Atak, would you consider adding the option of muxing external Vobsubs (*.sub/*.idx) in addition to the other sub formats you already have? Thanks...

Second question: Is there any theoretical difference in encode quality between A.) Auto crop and resize to HD-ready res (720p) by adding borders OR B.) No crop, just resize downward to HD-ready res (720p).

I realize parts of that don't have anything to do with just VFR, but I'm still learning avisynth, and wasn't sure what to trim out

first i must say great app it worked great for the first movie i did(The new rambo) but now i'm trying to do sin city and it is acting odd. i can select the m2ts file and select the vid and audio streams and it does the demuxing but then it opens up media player classic and says "cannot decod stream"(or something to that effect. i'm not sure if it something i messed up(i don't think it is) but i can't get it to work at all. i have tried re-downloading and extracting ripbot but the same thing happened. i am trying it again now but have moved mpc out of the tools folder just to see what it would do i'm expecting a diff error. any help would be appriciated.

in case it makes a difference i'm using alcohol 120% to mount an image created with my ps3 and have any dvd hd to do the decrypt.

Also i was able to play the file that ripbot creates in the temp folder using VLC. and VLC can play the movie right from the bd image.

Hi Atak,

First of all, i've been using your program for aboub past year or so. Great job man! There's nothing else out there like it.

I was wondering, is there any plans in the near future to
1. Integrate the ripping and exact stream copying of eac3 or trueHD, and DtsHD stream. ( i plan on converting all my hd-dvds to mkv while keepin the losless stream)

2. Implement the capability of the GPU rendering power.

Again thanks for the great software, and i hope you keep on improving it and make it better.
Long live RipBot :)

I have this strange case.

I was encoding a TV show DVD, DHW season 4 for my girlfriend for XBMC.

Anyway, I locked the size to 350mb (2 pass) to save up space...

I was using my own profile, and set the Audio at 2.0 OGG Vorbis which is around at 128 kbps [q 4] and did 6 shows. They all came out to be exactly 340 mb!! What happened to last 10 mb??

My guess is because the resolution is not divisible by 16... I am resizing them at 704x396.

Should I post log.txt?

NO. The problem is with audio. OGG uses VBR so final bitrate and size cannot be predicted in 100%. That's why you have ~128kbps in profile instead of 128kbps

thanx for quick reply Atak. i should have also mentioned i'm runing windows vista ultimate 64-bit(but i still checked version of WMP it is 11)
Uninstall ffdshow

ok so i got ffdshow 2895 installed trying it again now...might as well mention this now(was going to be my next thing) but it takes like 30min to demux and 12h(for rambo) to encode is this normal(not that i mind that much as long as it works) my pc is not that old core 2 duo 2.6 4gb of ram. is it because the files are stored on usb drive? update again in 30min when demux is done thanx for the help and the app again

well that seems to have worked starting encoding now thanx again Atak any idea why the ver of ffdshow i had did not work? i had 2880 before.

Is it better to use ffdshow 2895 over 2633MT?

Yes! Because MT version was merged with normal ffdshow long time ago. Instead of libavcodec select ffmpeg-mt

yes it is normal. These days dual core@2.6 is rather low end for video encoding. Mid would be my q6600@3ghz. High end will be ofcource core i7 :)

I know people talk about getting the best encoding speeds for Ripbot, so I thought I'd share this with you. This is Ripbot264 running on a 24-core system. It's not my system, but I have access to it :)

So you're able to encode a 1080p 2-hour movie in less than 3 hours? If I can get this to encode faster, please let me know what I can do.

It's actually a server with 4 x Intel Xeon E7450 CPUs...which are 6-core 2.4GHz CPUs. So that's a total of 24 CPU cores running at 2.4GHz with NO Hyperthreading (since that CPU doesn't support hyperthreading).

I probably should have explained what I was encoding and the settings in order to quantify speed: I took my Blu-Ray copy of Akira and was encoding it at the same 1080p resolution to mkv, using CQ 18 for the compression, and stream copy from the original TrueHD Japanese audio track. Oh, and I also threw in an .srt subtitle file in English. Encoding took just about 3 hours.

I generally don't do full 23 GB encodes.

My 1080p > DVD9 (1080p) encodes usually complete overnight. (7-10 hrs)

I'm thinking your rig could probably keep up that 19 fps rate on high kps encodes, and really kick ass on normal dvd9 / dvd5 encodes.

I might have jumped the gun a little.:p

@screaming - I assume this is a CQ encode, if so, that is a gret speed, but, if it is a 2 pass encode, depending on settings, this is preety slow, again, depending on profile/quality setting used, I can max out at 27fps on a 2pass encode, only for the 1st pass, 2nd pass always hovers around the 6-7 marks. Anyhow, if CQ with high settings, thats an excellent speed!

Im so tempted to get a Core i7 920 (2.66GHZ), i have heard this can get up 2 4ghz stable on air!!! With the right board.

Hi

asked this question already at forum.videohelp.com, but I do not expect that much users to recently check both threads.

I am new to RipBot and I am trying to convert some blu rays to mp4. My current Blu Ray is one with 23,976 FPS and I want to speed it up to 24 FPS for perfect playback on my LCD. Doing this with ripbot causes the avisynth script to add the following


#Tempo
video=AssumeFPS(video,24)
audio=TimeStretch(audio,tempo=24/23,976*100)


but the audio line causes problems in the first conversion step, the audio conversion. This is the error I get when manually executing job1_EncodeAudio.cmd:


Scanning for Audio Stream...
ERROR: Can't find audio stream!
Input file must be WAV PCM!


What is wrong? Removing the audio line in the first quote removes the error, but then I do not get the speedup.

RipBot 1.13.3
AviSynth 2.58
Haali Media Splitter 1.9.42.1

Remember encoding speed is not constant! If your movie has alot of movement and details encoding is always slower. Anime with huge amount of static scenes is encoded faster. x264 encoder does not have to pay too much attention to static areas. I was testing with dynamic movie at full 1920x1080 resolution (16:9). Movie with 2.40:1 aspect ratio will be encoded faster due to black borders (no movement, no texture)

Can someone please explain to me how I work out what settings I need to get a movie to fill a 16:9 tv screen? Most of the ones I convert are much wider than that and I end up with black borders so I use the zoom settings on my tv to fill the screen.

You don't have to change framerate! 23.976 is ok.

@topsham
Here is example what you should do if your movie has 2.40:1 aspect ratio. For 2:35:1 and 1:85:1 you have to do calculations yourself.

As you can see you will always loose some parts of the frame.

You point to something I thought about. The 24p mode of LCDs or plasmas is real 24fps, or real 23,976 fps?

Atak_Snajpera
24th April 2009, 16:45
Since all blu-ray movies are encoded as 23.976 and not 24p so I think that TVs must stick to that rule as well. 24p is used as shortcut as well as 60p,30p (real framerate is 59.94,29.97)

i am getting very stable constant results of 26fps for 1st pass and 10.6fps for the 2nd pass for 1920X1080P blu-ray action movies encoded in 8MBps setting with profile 4.0. and Xstream copy MKV. this is on my watercooled Q6600 @ 3.7Ghz.

i've never tried CQ, but if that 24core system encodes 2 pass only with that speed, i have to say it's quite disappointing.

Has anyone tried using RipBot264 with VC-1 material on Windows 7 x64? I have been successful with H264 and MPEG-2, but with VC-1 RipBot hangs after the demux of the m2ts file. Is there a workaround for this as I would really like to continue using Win7?

Thanks in advance.

As I mentioned in my previous post, that encoding was CQ, NOT 2-pass. I am personally concerned with quality more than the size of the output file.

Secondly, I'm not sure why users speak more about fps processing than the time it take to encode. I just want the encode to finish as quickly as possible.

Probably because the more frames per second you can encode... the faster the job will complete?

that's because you can have a 3 hour long movie that'll take twice as long to encode than a hour and half long movie. therefore how long it takes to encode the movie can be heavily dependent on the length of the film.

a more accurate calculation, or estimate if you will, would be to compare by fps. just like how you would compare how fast two cars travel, in speed mph/kph.

i guess so many users are referring to 2 pass is because most of us here use it. so a more accurate comparison would for the 24 core system to test in 2 pass condition, then perhaps we can all go "wow" (slow/fast).

Not sure if this has been done yet, but thought this would be good. If you are using RipBot264, what settings are you using? For me I have been using ripbot264 as follows:

Blu Ray/HD DVD
Profile: 4.0
AutoCrop
1920 x 1080
2-Pass
8150MB
MKV
Original Audio
Takes about 12-15 hours to encode using a Quad Core 6600
(I wrote a quick Wiki on another site regarding Ripbot264 - http://www.mediasmartserver.net/wiki/index.php/RipBot264)

Standard DVDs
Right now I have all my standard dvds in their native structure (Video_TS) but think that the next step will be to use Ripbot to convert those as well to mkvs, not sure if I would use the same settings as for Blu Ray (sans the 1920x1080).

For me (with blu rays) autocrop does not work. Even though there is a 124 pixel black area at top and bottom (in detail this is even more, but twice 124 maintains height mod 16 = 0) over the full movie in the first bluray I ripped, I got a 1080 height video as output (including black borders). It turned out that I had to manually figure out how much to crop without losses.

Anything else looks fine.

Ok, I did it with 23,976 fps and the media portal output is perfectly smooth on my LCD while having selected 24hz as the display refresh rate.

Anyways, you did great job with ripbot, but I would wish that one could integrate several audio streams into the result file with ripbot itself. Up to now I did go the manual way for this.
