Hi, I just selected to encode subtitles and selected the sup file from job1, picked 2-pass encoding, avchd and 8150 files size however the resulting file is only 463MB.

I used tsmuxer to view the resulting file and it ignored selected tracks and only the AC3 file remains, apparently the encoding of the video never took place. The other 2 movies that were on the list without the sup option encoded fine.

Posting on behalf of a friend (the 5 day wait thingie):

I queue a video to be converted from .flv (off of youtube) to be converted to .mp4 and when I click start, it takes about 2 seconds to say "file converted" but it never showed the progress or anything. The file it supposedly converted is also non-existant in the specified directory

Thanks for your attention!

Hi Atak,

I have an question for you. I have convert an m2ts movies to AVCHD with Nero Vision and the fast foward movie is working 100%. Did you know how fix ripbot264 for working the same? because ripbot264 in FF is skip 2-3sec in 3-4 seconds. Fast Foward is painful on PS3, Samsung Blu-Ray and Sony blu-ray home player.

Thanks for you time and hard work.:)

Thank you for creating RipBot264, an outstanding tool which I find definitely the best. I have tested many tools (both commercial and freeware) for encoding my DVDs and RipBot264 is IMO the most intuitive AND gives the best results. I will be glad if I will be able to donate some money for future development and as a kind of appreciation.
:thanks:

Świetna robota, Atak!

I recently updated to v1.14.2 and I'm getting x264_x86 errors on random occasions. I once had the x264 appcrash, and ripbot came back to me saying the conversion had been completed with a total time, but the output file was never created. The next couple encodes both worked fine, so I thought it was a one time thing, but I got another one this morning. However this time, the error occurred at 96% of pass 2 (during the credits of the movie). Once I closed the crash notice, ripbot went and muxed the vid/aud together and I did get an output file. When I ran through it, the video freezes 4 mins before the end of the movie, while the audio still plays.

I found this all very strange.

Run Prime95 MT (http://www.softpedia.com/get/Others/Home-Education/Prime95.shtml) for couple hours to check if your cpu is stable. Then run memtest x86 (http://www.memtest.org/#downiso)for another couple hours.

hi atak, i have recently switched from version 1.13.3 of your app to version 1.14.2 and noticed that every time i tried to add a mkv file to the job queue it would get stuck at the "please wait...gathering informations..." stage. i eventually managed to track this down to my ini file pointing at a non existent profile which i forgot to copy across from the previous version so the issue was completely my fault :-). just a thought, maybe it would be nice to notify the user if they have a missing profile as it took me a while to track it down (tried updating all pre-req's).

other than that, im still loving your app :-), oh yeah one teenie weenie other thing, shouldn't it say "gathering information" not "informations" ??.

The word "information" does not have plural for in English?

because ripbot264 in FF is skip 2-3sec in 3-4 seconds. Fast Foward is painful on PS3, Samsung Blu-Ray and Sony blu-ray home player.
I tested on my friend's Samsung P1600 eu and fast forward/backward and chapters work almost immediately. I also do not recall any problems on PS3.

Hi,

:thanks: for this great tool. Very easy and simple to use. Nice. By the way: where is the donate button in this program? ;-)

Just feedback for further development:
It would be nice if it would be possible to select two audiostreams which will be directly converted/muxed into target file (just nice to save one manual step).

And perhaps you could keep the resolution warning if AVCHD is selected only informational - not forcing the user to change the resolution (reason: maybe some people prefer the cropped *.m2ts from AVCHD folder for streaming directly to PS3)

I was wanting to see if it might be an amplified artifact from the original. Something like a smudge of static being inside the realm of the target htz that might have been seen by the encoder as important there in mapping out in full range.

The slow seeking, chapter jumps also happens on Panasonic BD30. It's the long keyint's, with --keyint 24 seeking/jumping works like it should. I know long gop's help a lot in rare situations but they are a nightmare to some hardware players, powerdvd, windvd (no deblocking after 24 frames from an I frame). Either forcing small gop's with avchd option or a separate option to change this would be much appreciated.

Also directshowsource and dss2 change the framerate of 23.976 inputs which messes up eac3to and possibly 24p on some players, a workaround for this is using assumeFPS(24000,1001). 25, 29.97, 50, 59.94, dgsource, ffmpegsource aren't affected.

It really does not matter if script contains assumeFPS(24000,1001) or not because I use raw avc as output. fps paramentr is added during muxing to container (23.976)

Regarding short gop I agree with ajax. You can add your own commands to profile. Personally I don't like short gop because it only hurts quality. I do not want to see changes in picture every second due to forced key frames! (x264 developers had good reason to choose 25 - 250 range.)
I would like to see full list of players which like long gop and which do not like them.

IMO OCCT Perestroika http://www.ocbase.com/perestroika_en/ is a better stability test. Try CPU Linpack test and run it for several hours (usually an hour is more than enough to detect errors). You will see if the overclocked processor is stable and your cooling system is efficient.

Hey guys, Im extremely new here so go easy on me.

I absolutely love the Ripbot program. But now I seem to have a problem when trying to upload files to be Ripbot'd.

When I first started using this program a few days ago, I thought I was in absolute heaven. It did an excellent job in such a short amount of time. Every other program/method I found took forever. So I'm really hoping you guys can help me figure this one out.

So far I have been able to convert about four or five .m2ts files into the .MKV format. But, then I tried again and when I load the file into ripbot and it starts the 'demuxing selected stream' process, after 100% I get this error:

DirectShowSource: couldn't open file C:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv: An object or name was not found. (C:\tempRipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)

...I searched around on the net and everyone with this same problem did not receiver an answer so I'm asking here. (if already answered elsewhere, please kindly direct me to the answer!) I am getting this problem with EVERY .m2ts file I try now.

So I'm starting to think its one of my programs perhaps? I uninstalled and re-installed up to date versions of everything required to open Ripbot264. (even the newest Ripbot264 v.1.14.2) But still I am getting this error?


everything was going perfect until now. Now I can't get anything to demux. I took the .m2ts file, and used Tsmuxer, then a program called AutoMKV and was able to shrink it that way and it works fine, except it took nearly 24 hours.

I really want to continue using Ripbot264, so if anyone can help me out?? Thanks a million.

2) reboot
3) Install Avisynth 2.5.8 , Haali media splitter and ffdshow 32 bit (http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=173941&package_id=199416&release_id=439904)
4) reboot

...no luck. :(

crackinhedz
28th June 2009, 20:05
ok guys, I think I may have fixed my own problem.

For ***** and giggles, I uninstalled Haali Media Splitter again, and re-installed it.

Now my .mt2s file opens again!!! yay. Strange it didn't work before?



also, a question about my method of encoding.

I like to output the file in .mkv format (why I don't know, I just do! :))

So I use "2 pass 8192 kbps" and keep everything else pretty much the same...1080p etc.

Is 2 pass optimal or is "CQ" better?


another question?

The audio is Dts-HD MA, so instead of "copy stream", if I select CBR 640kbps AC3, would this be the same as if I just wanted the "core" dts track?





...I sure am glad I figured this out. The other methods were just taking too freakin long!

Atak_Snajpera
28th June 2009, 20:32
if I select CBR 640kbps AC3, would this be the same as if I just wanted the "core" dts track?
In terms of quality - YES! AC3 640 kbps = DTS 1,5Mbps .

I see the list of x264 options there, but how would one specify Pass 1 vs. Pass 2 options?
extra option will be used i both passes.

Is 2 pass optimal or is "CQ" better?
I see that you don't care about size so use CQ @ 22. It will be faster because second pass is not required.

I see that you don't care about size so use CQ @ 22. It will be faster because second pass is not required.
well, I would like to keep the files between 4-8GB.

I want the best quality possible but I know at that size I will have to sacrifice some quality. But in the end, the files look amazing. You have an excellent program! Thank you so much.

So I can still get a fast/quality 1080p encode using CQ @ 22? Thanks!

29th June 2009, 13:48
Why yes?In order to establish custom Profiles that assert different x264 options for Pass 1 vs. Pass 2 e.g. Dark Shikari's suggestions for "Very High Quality", "High Quality", etc. as he posted here on this board:

Here's a revised set of encoding options with first-pass parameters for each. Since "Very High" is using b-adapt 2, I used slower settings on the first pass so that people wouldn't complain about it only using 50% of their CPU... . It should also give a more accurate bit distribution, albeit the speed cost isn't worth it for any of the others.

Firstpass: --subme 7 --me hex --bframes 3 --b-adapt 2 --8x8dct --direct auto --weightb --threads auto
Very High Quality: --subme 9 --me umh --ref 4 --bframes 3 --b-adapt 2 --mixed-refs --8x8dct --direct auto --trellis 1 --weightb --threads auto --psy-rd 1.0:0.2
Description: Everything and the kitchen sink, but no insane settings.

Firstpass: --subme 2 --me dia --bframes 3 --direct auto --weightb --threads auto --partitions none
High Quality: --subme 7 --me umh--ref 3 --bframes 3 --direct auto --8x8dct --weightb --trellis 1 --threads auto --psy-rd 1.0:0.2
Description: A good balance.

Firstpass: --subme 2 --me dia --bframes 3 --direct auto --weightb --threads auto --partitions none
Medium Quality: --subme 6 --me hex --ref 2 --bframes 3 --direct auto --8x8dct --weightb --threads auto
Description: A good balance, but toned down a bit.

Firstpass: --subme 0 --me dia --bframes 3 --direct auto --weightb --threads auto --partitions none
Low Quality: --subme 3 --me hex --bframes 3 --8x8dct --weightb --threads auto
Description: Much faster, but with a significant quality penalty.

Firstpass: None
Ultra-Low Quality: --subme 1 --me dia --partitions i8x8,i4x4 --bframes 3 --8x8dct --threads auto
Description: Even faster, but with a very large quality penalty.

Firstpass: None
Ultra-Fast: --subme 0 --no-cabac --partitions none --me dia --aq-mode 0
Description: Incredibly fast, but with an enormous quality penalty.

Try to replace old ffmpeg.exe with newer revision
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=205275&package_id=248632Used your link. Now, less clicks, but still clicks! See below.

Thats all.

But yes do as atak said I am interested in your resulting outcome...

~DarCMust be a _smart_ extraction by AVIExtract. Demuxers which I am used to (i.e. VirtualDub, ProjectX) simply demux the contained streams without interfering with the stream's contents! And work much quicker!
The recording does have some very loud parts. But the original wav can be transcoded to ac3 by Aften via AftenGUI without producing any clicks at all, though. Couldn't AVIExtract do an equivalent demuxing job, just demux the original wav out of the avi-container? Why does it take minutes instead of seconds to do its job for a 2hrs recording?

I found an automatic way for quality control: Since I have the original wav, I can do a "difference" between "AVIExtract-produced wav with clicks" MINUS "original wav without clicks" showing where the clicks are.

Made some tests and screenshots with these wav files:

audio.1.wav ... demuxed by AVIExtract.cmd taking a few minutes from my post from June 27 with RipBot264v1.14.1, ffdshow[rev 2992] [2009-06-09], FFmpeg.exe from RipBot264v1.14.1 download

audio.2.wav ... new demux by AVIExtract.cmd with RipBot264v1.14.2, ffdshow [rev 3020] [2009-06-28], FFmpeg-svn-19159.exe from FFmpeg-svn-19159.7z found in Atak_Snajpera's link

Used the command:
> Edit > Mix Paste > Overlap (Mix) > Invert > From File>
audio.0.wav ... which is the original wav from original avi (demuxed by VirtualDub taking just a few seconds to demux)

The screenshots show the results and zoom-ins into some clicks:
a) AVIExtract produced far more clicks than I thought!
b) Fewer clicks with new ffdshow and ffmpeg versions!
One sort of clicks is not produced any more by the newer ffdshow and ffmpeg.exe
b) Other sort of clicks is still produced.

Screenshots and small sample (saved selection of original wav from 57:30.000 to 58:15.000 where many clicks got produced by AVIExtract) "Test_57_30_to_58_15.wav" uploaded to link (http://rapidshare.com/files/250002931/Twin-Tower_clicks_screenshots_and_sample_wav.rar) (7123 KB).

My pragmatic conclusion: it seems better to do demuxing with VirtualDub first and then separately input the original wav for audio.

I used Ripbot to flip my Blurays to MP4...worked great even on Windows 7...thanks!! Now that I have the MP4 HD files, any recommendations on the fastest method to convert those to iPhone format?

It's like the dvd standard, need to use 2 folders, also if the folder is empty?
In AVCHD structure those empty folders are not required.

any recommendations on the fastest method to convert those to iPhone format?
it does not exist. You will have to re-encode again.

Hi,

I've been using Ripbot264 to convert my videos for a few months, and I've found that by using the 200% audio normalize boost option the sound was loud enough for my every day commute in trains & buses. However I have found out that when traveling in planes, even with the 200% boost, the audio is not loud enough with the jet engine noise...

Is there any way I could boost the volume even more than 200%? I realise that boosting the audio so much would degrade its quality, but this is still better than not being able to understand what people say in movies... I looked at every option I could find, but I did not find any. Is there something I overlooked? If the option does not exist, is there a chance that this could be implemented in a future version?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Have you considered using headphones?

30th June 2009, 14:41
I forgot to mention that I am using in-ear Sony earbuds, which have always performed well and with sufficient volume. Actually when I'm in the plane and i play a game on the PSP I actually have to lower the volume, whereas the movies barely audible with the volume at the maximum.

Instead of destroying audio quality (anything above 100% = distorted sound) you should buy larger headphones which cover whole ears.

Using the X series earbuds & it sound freaking sweet when having normalize @100%, 200% sound even better because the X series S-Master amp push the audio to the max & sound clean always, also Atak Snajpera, can you add the Sony Walkman X series profile video screen into Ripbot264 thanks :D, also i already made a profile for the X series, just use 2-Pass@768k with my profile & 432x240 & be stun of the VQ that X series has.

Hi Atak Snajpera, and thank you for your answer, it's very nice to have such excellent software, and on top of that to be able to get in touch with the developper in less than one day :)

Regarding the larger headphones solution, unfortunately it is not an option, as on top of the noise the other constraint that characterises the plane travel is not being able to pack much stuff (at least not on the low cost airlines). This is why I'm trying to find a software solution to my problem.

I tried to find if there was a way to increase the output from the PSP, but apparently unless i'm willing to open it and do some soldering (which i'm not) there's not solution that way.

So it looks to me that the only solution to my problem is to increase the volume boost during the video encoding. I am very much aware of the sound distorsion that occurs when performing this boost, but I guess that bad sound quality is better than inaudible sound. This is why I'm wondering if there's any way to boost the volume above 200% in Ripbot264. I was hoping that if it is actually not possible to go above this limit it was purely due to a design choice, and hopefully not due to a limitation of the underlying software, so that in a future version some sort of option (maybe with a warning about distortion) could be added to aleviate this problem.

Thanks again for the superb software!

So it looks to me that the only solution to my problem is to increase the volume boost during the video encoding... any way to boost the volume above 200% in Ripbot264.As Atak has already said, this would likely result in severe distortion of the audio.

Encoding the audio in a special way for your PSP would be a huge PIA, though I suppose you could try for example encoding only the center channel--at least you'd have a better chance of hearing the dialog!

I have a gizmo called a Boostaroo which does a superb job of boosting audio from any audio device (mini-jack in, two mini-jacks out). Dunno if it's still made but was $20 bucks when I bought mine years ago. (Ok I looked and it appears to be still in production).

Best option of all IMO would be to get noise-cancelling earphones which AFAIK all have amps built-in also.

I still prefer my PSP with nice ghosting effect:). Higher resolution and larger screen this is what i like. This walkman is step backward even with OLED. Who invented this weird resolution - 432x240 (1.8:1?!?!). Where is main profile support? Why every player after ipod must support only base line profile??? According to this (http://www.sonystyle.com.hk/ss/product/walkman/nwz_x1060_e.jsp) AVC resolution is limited to 320x240! Nice toy that's all :(

Well AVC resolution is not limited to 320x240 because people said that it can do up to 480x272 but i go with the screen resolution which is 432x240 but damm you got to see the X series in action but turn the OLED screen to 5, that where the OLED rape iTouch & PSP in color & brightness & ZERO ghosting. also 432x240 look very sharp on the X series & even it's way smaller then the PSP & iTouch but the screen look better & can easy read subs with no problem.

Also to answer your question about base profile, the reason is that the X series cpu is 250mhz when the PSP is 333mhz & the iTouch is 500mhz since AVC aka H264 pretty much is a cpu hog so they had to go with base which use 768kb & up for AVC format which is better then mepg 4 but 768kb look very HD on the X series. also the X series screen is not 3:4 but 9:4 or close to 16:9 ratio, something like that which mean it's perfect for widescreen movies, movies or anime. i watch the same video clip on the PSP & X series & all i can say is that the X series make my Sony XBR6 HDTV 32in look like crap when it comes to color & brightness >_< & for PSP forget about it.

Wow did't knew that & yeah, btw Ripbot264 really & i mean really showing the IQ in HD vidoes on the X series, i took my HD movie rip which was 1920x1080@12mbps & turn it into 432x240 & it look just WOW, the IQ look the same on the X series even at 768kb. also DB Kai look freaking crazy in OLED, if you planing to buy a HDTV, get LED or OLED, DO NOT GET LCD because LED & OLED show more colors & brightness you never saw on a video before, FF7 which was my HD movie rip look O_O.

I found an issue with 64bit x264 it creates files are are somehow different from 32bit x264 file.

i ran the same encoding one with 32bit x264 and second with 64bit x264.

both play fine in windows, but on XBMC is a different story.

64bit x264 encoded files don't playback fine on XBMC for windows. files that were encoded with 64bit x264 playback at 13.3fps for some reason.

please take a look here

hey Atak, awesome software, been using it for more than a year now.

However I have 2 questions/suggestions.

1. I have this MKV with aspect ratio of 1.33 I cant encode it ot avchd 1080p, The aspect ratio gets all weird and streched if I force the resolution, but if I dont then I dont see 1920x1080 but only 720x480, or 1920x1440.

And as far as I know that is not standar resolution for AVCHD so is there any way to encode this?

2. is there any way to be able to do 1 pass and stop or continue from there?

Here my city have major electrical issues and I have lost hour of works because of this.

I dont know much about this this is way I am asking, can for example say do 1 first pass only, and then second pass? or in any case the light or anything interrumps the second pass be able to run the second pass only instead of having to redo 1st and 2nd pass all over again?

Thanks in advance

True, there is some clipping in the original. It is the noisy ending of a loud scene. But 'Twin-Tower' clicks (example in attachment) I talk about are not in the original wav!
What do you hear in the original wav? You hear the clicks which you hear in AVIExtract's result? You see the Twin-Tower frequency pile-ups which characterises each of the clicks in spectral view?

I do not hear and see these clicks in the original. They get added by AVIExtract!
I will apply my pragmatic work-around: add the original wav instead of AVIExtract's wav and let Aften produce good ac3 (sounding just like the original wav) without 'value-added' clicks.

Hey guys, Im extremely new here so go easy on me.

I absolutely love the Ripbot program. But now I seem to have a problem when trying to upload files to be Ripbot'd.

When I first started using this program a few days ago, I thought I was in absolute heaven. It did an excellent job in such a short amount of time. Every other program/method I found took forever. So I'm really hoping you guys can help me figure this one out.

So far I have been able to convert about four or five .m2ts files into the .MKV format. But, then I tried again and when I load the file into ripbot and it starts the 'demuxing selected stream' process, after 100% I get this error:



...I searched around on the net and everyone with this same problem did not receiver an answer so I'm asking here. (if already answered elsewhere, please kindly direct me to the answer!) I am getting this problem with EVERY .m2ts file I try now.

So I'm starting to think its one of my programs perhaps? I uninstalled and re-installed up to date versions of everything required to open Ripbot264. (even the newest Ripbot264 v.1.14.2) But still I am getting this error?


everything was going perfect until now. Now I can't get anything to demux. I took the .m2ts file, and used Tsmuxer, then a program called AutoMKV and was able to shrink it that way and it works fine, except it took nearly 24 hours.

I really want to continue using Ripbot264, so if anyone can help me out?? Thanks a million.

I am now getting the same error but only on one BluRay Battle of Britain which is mpeg2.

DirectShowSource: couldn't open file C:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv: An object or name was not found. (C:\tempRipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)

It doesn't appear to be causing any issues, but thought I'd report it.

CQ = Constant Quality
Lower value = Higher Quality and larger file size. In this mode file size CANNOT BE PREDICTED!
Default 22 value should give optimal results. If you are not happy with quality just lower value and try again.

Hello,

I just noticed that since upgrading to 1.14.2, when I try to preview my file in media player classic I get an error message. I get "Cannot Render File". Anyone else have this happen to them? It's new for me. I'm using Windows 7 RC1 x64, if that helps. Thanks!

Hi there, first post so be gentle.

I am also running Win7 RC1 x64 and have exactly the same problem as Brogan.

I add the MKV to Ripbot and it displays Demuxing Audio...etc.

Then MPC pops up and says "cannot render file".

By this point the Ripbot screen has reset and everything has gone. (in the TEMP folder, the .dts file is still there but there is no video file??)

I have tried uninstalling all the relevant programs and re-installing them. I have also tried installing 1.14.1 instead as this is my first time using Ripbot. This also gives the same error.

Can someone please help? Let me know what information you need and I will post it here as soon as possible. In the mean time I am going to see if the program works on the Vista partition of my HDD.

Thanks in advance!

Where did you obtain the MKV?

Hi!

What is the format of the videostream of the MKV that you created?

Sorry if this has been covered, searched the thread for a while and came up empty- hopefully it's an easy one though. Can ripbot put the lossless flac track into an .mkv? I got all the .dll's and it seems to be working fine, but here's why I ask. The source vid is 7.1 / 24 bit - The resulting mkv (while looking and sounding fantasic) is reported in mediainfo as being 6 channel / 16 bit.

Just wondering what I'm missing if trying to have lossless flac in the .mkv, or is it just not possible (avchd profile only??) thanks

Shoot, all I have left is the job1.log which doesn't say much. The file you're talking about is in the temp folder right? That got deleted when I exited the program. I guess I'll run it again tonight and get the log again (can I get it from just doing the "pre-encode"). BTW- its been the same story for 3 diff ones I've tried whether its dtsma or truehd. The flac has resulted in 6 channel 16 bit for all of them.

Well, the log's pretty clear. I guess even though I don't get any errors in the gui, it's not liking my tmt .dll's. But, it also seems to be doing the same thing w/ truehd. Any suggestions?

Is there any chance that Ripbot will get the ability to handle multiple audio tracks? Basically, I want my mkvs to have the original DTS track (for playback in my home theater setup) and an AC3 track (for playback on devices that don't support HD audio or have DTS downmix). Currently I will create an 8GB mkv with Ripbot and retain the original audio. I will then use a program like PopcornMKV (I actually just wrote a post about here - http://dbone1026.blogspot.com/2009/07/popcorn-mkv-audio-converter.html) to create an AC3 track to remux back into the mkv. It would be ideal if I could do this all with Ripbot. I know some people could say there are other tools to use. The only reason I bring it up is because I have using Ripbot down to a science with my movies. However, I couldn't say if adding multiple tracks to Ripbot would require too much to program in, but figured it can't hurt to ask :)

Hi Everybody,

I know this has been asked before but I have not seen any clear indication of what is causing it. Was using earlier version of Ripbot on a vista machine, no problem. (had some codecs installed over time...). Then new clean install of Win7 RC1, Server 2003, Xp Home, XP Pro (SP3) no codec packs, but it just fails after demux. It says " directshowsource...."due to a certification failure"...C:\temp\ripbot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2. Have tried any combination of uninstall/reinstall of the required software (FDDSHOW, Hali, AVi, Java etc.. - "tried full, custom/normal etc also tried playing around with the fdd audio/video decode config. Any assistance would be great. I can post the txt files if required.

The source is a rip of the old movie Twister - Tried DTS Master, AC3 and "no audio" as well. Same result.

I'll paste the logs & .avs files...
Here the getinfo.avs:

DirectShowSource("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv",audio=false).ConvertToYV12()

Where did you get the source MKV file?

15th July 2009, 14:49
Created from my own source disk.. using dvdfab HD.. the same used to rip my other Blu-Ray discs..

Guest
15th July 2009, 14:52
Why are you encoding from the MKV rather than the source?

butha
15th July 2009, 14:57
I prefer to work with the files on hdd rather than stress my original discs. Also take out the menus, additoinal sound tracks etc. I want to end up with the smallest high quality file for my media centre (the 720P files are all around 4GB and the 1080P ones 8GB). I watch them on projector, but am not phased by multiroom sound, stereo only, which often means I us the AC3 track (smallest size) I am quite new at this still though and would appreciate assistance. My main issue is that the error message says "due to certification failure" which seems easy? Playing my ripped (30GB) file of the demuxed one manually with MPC HC works fine, so no idea why this new version has this issue?

butha
15th July 2009, 15:10
I have also googled that "certification failure" and can't seem to find it. It must either be codec related or version related (ripbot or one of the plugins) before it worked 100% I never had an issue - what is different is that before when ripbot demuxed I saw fddshow icons in the system tray, which I don't anymore..maybe somewhere it needs to be registered/re registered?

Nkotok
15th July 2009, 15:44

Nope no luck.. Did not work... I have the current screen (and temp folder files) open so can paste anything that might help. I watched it demux at 100% and in the tray icon I saw the Hali Splitter (white icon) flash while "gathering information" was displayed, and the moment MPC opens up the error is there. What does the "due to a certification failure" error mean? Any help would be apprecaited. The program is brilliant! (Just hope I can get it going again)

My last advice
1) uninstall AviSynth , Haali Media Spliter and ffdshow
2) restart pc
3) install again AviSynth , Haali Media Spliter and ffdshow
4) restart pc
5) install Windows Media Player 11

butha
15th July 2009, 16:34
I have done the steps 1 - 4 -(from previous thread)

When installing the AviSynt, Haali & FDD, just install with defaults? Or should I select spesific check boxes and config after install?

MP11? - Have not heard that one before? Why would that help?

Will try anyway and let you know ..

Thanks so far!

Atak_Snajpera
15th July 2009, 16:37
MP11? - Have not heard that one before? Why would that help?
because it contains VC-1 decoder. Vista has WMP 11 installed by default but older systems do not have it!

When installing the AviSynt, Haali & FDD, just install with defaults? Or should I select spesific check boxes and config after install?
Ripbot264 always sets optimal codecs automatically in ffdshow

butha
15th July 2009, 16:39
Ah! Thank you for that! That might actually do the trick! The previous system that worked was Vista Ultimate, but I had a number of codecs and for sure WMP11 installed on there. Also had Pdvd new for Blu-Ray etc.. so the issue started with the new clean installed servers/pc's... will install and reboot and let you know! (just have to give the demux another 15 minutes or so to complete...)

butha
15th July 2009, 17:07

I checked your file and I have no problems.
1) Uninstall AviSynth , Haali Media Splitter , ffdshow
2) reboot
3) Install Again AviSynth , Haali Media Splitter , ffdshow
This should solve your problem

edit: just got the logs for a truehd one.. seems to be doing the same down-conversion (24 to 16 bit) as with dts-ma

There are few reasons why TrueHD and DTS-MA are always converted to 16bit:
1) Compression is higher with 16bit (smaller sizes)
2) Alot of Blu-Ray movies have fake 24bit. 16bit + empty 8bit
3) There is no way you can hear difference on consumer equipment. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_bit_depth)

for me 24bit is nothing but placebo.

OKay. The sample was maid by mkvtoolnix GUI. Now i have done everthing i can.

- Uninstall everything
- Update directx10 latest...
- install latest ffdshow, avisynth 2.5.8, matroska

The audio is unsync and 6 sec difference in AVCHD 2pass, 720p.

Did it could be the DTS track could unsync?

I Will try to format and reinstalling everything soon because, samething with older version.

@Atak;

Just reformat hard drive, re-install windows, drivers, softwares, documents and etc.

Installed Avisynth 2.5.8, ffdshow CLSID 3029 rev non ICL10, mastroka splitter and ripbot 1.14.2. Samething.

If i check the original file, everything is sync. When import to ripbot, set to AVCHD, 2-pass, DTS audio is 6 senconds under video timesize. On preview, unsync on preview. Set to ffmepg-mt in ffdshow video configuration, still the same.

Now im stuck... can't convert it. If convert and set 6250ms of delay, final video is unsync. If i let it xx.copy audio, and let 6 seconds difference, same results.

more than ffdshow 2790 rev i have trouble with same case with a couple of video imported and try to arranged.

I have Windows Vista Home premium x86 version, with sp2 installed and all windows updates installed.

3) There is no way you can hear difference on consumer equipment. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_bit_depth)

for me 24bit is nothing but placebo.


Understood, I just took FLAC to mean what it is- full / lossless (no conversion)
The reason I'm inquiring about this is I'm about to build a htpc with a radeon 4550 (7.1 hdmi out) and I plan to do flac and lpcm to my onkyo 606. If you're saying the flac option in ripbot is still extremely close to the dts-ma or truehd, i.e. no channels lost, only 24/16 bit conversion, I can live with that.

What problem are you having?
Can't find a way to make RipBot use your suite automatically or semiauto.
Won't Atak_Snajpera support you?

I have searched the thread but have been unable to find an answer for this. In previous versions there was an option to cut or stretch audio to fit the video but it doesn't seem to be available now. Is there any way to do this with the current version?

Hello. I am using latest ripbot264 1.14.2 + ffdshow_rev3024_20090703_clsid_x64.exe + Windows 7 RC x64.

Ripbot doesnt find ffdshow, but i could watch movies with mplayer classic.

Which build of ffdshow should ill use that it will be regonized correctly in ripbot?

Thanks

Thank you. Now RipBot starts and find all the tools. After selecting a MKV input file and demuxing of audio mplayer classic opens and says "cannot render the file" i have tried to install wmp11 as you sayed it in your previous posts but the error is still here :-(

what can i do?

Jeeb's build is the same as others except for the compilation tools, and r1184 brings the AutoVAQ feature. What do you mean by optimize ? :confused:

Atak-

Feeling a little stupid here, so feel free to correct me.:confused:

If I'm choosing high res audio, (PCM, DTS-MA, or True HD) and check the FLAC box, Ripbot264 will:

1.) Convert the HR audio (not just the core) to Flac.

2.) Convert flac to Aften AC3 so it will be compatible with Dolby Digital receivers.

Will this converted 640 kps AC3 stream still contain all of the high res audio stream and not just the core?

Am I missing anything?

Thanks!

Atak_Snajpera
23rd July 2009, 00:05
1) i'm not that stupid to convert core to flac :) only hd part is encoded to flac. that's why flac option for dts-ma is only available if arcsoft dts decoder is installed.

So the resulting Aften AC3 is the combination of the AC3 / DTS core + the "HD part" of the original True HD/DTS-MA?:confused:

Can you explain to me exactly what Ripbot does with the HD Audio when checking the flac box?

I'm almost sure that you must have some ancient DirecshowSource.dll in AviSynth/Plugins directory or ancient AviSynth! Uninstall AviSynth and make sure you install latest version 2.58.

Atak,

I've recently re-discovered your fantastic app and have used it successfully on several HD DVDs. However, on some discs RipBot is unable to list the correct playlist item. After clicking 'Add', I point the app to the largest .EVO in the HVDVD_TS directory. Once RipBot is done with analyzing the content, it lists maybe 1-3 items in the PLAYLIST pulldown, and none of them is the main movie one. Is this something you've bumped into? Would you happen to know how to solve this issue?

Also, RipBot has been so useful that I'd like to make a donation. Do you have a PayPal account?

I have a problem, I selected 8125 as the video bitrate and after the encoding is done it gives me a lower bitrate like less than 300 kbps video so the end quality of the video is really poor. Am I doing something wrong here? I'm trying to convert my Transformers Blu-ray to MKV. I tried it a couple of times with different values like 7000 kbps, 10000 kbps and still the same result (poor quality and low bitrate) Thanks.

As if the program doesn't want to accept the bitrate selected before encoding. I even tried locking the file output to like 8GB and still doesn't do it. I'm confused :(

2 - i see now that Tsmuxer now support TRUE-HD audio tracks, its true? i try it but when i try to play the m2ts file with windows media player
classic, it wont play the audio track...why? (with the original m2ts file on the movie the sounds play fine!!)
3 - i also give a try at the Clown_BD Gui (that'd support TRUE-HD audio tracks), same problem playing the m2ts file with windows media player
classic...

someone can give me some suggestions? thx a lot

Umm... where do I find that?

Check the temp directory/jobx.

Also there are a couple titles that RB dont work with on hd dvd as they call an introductory track outside the normal pevob or feature evo files. Couple titles I know off hand are frightners (has an intro by Peter Jackson) and Galixina (this title is poorly authored even evodemux dont even like it).

colinhunt
29th July 2009, 23:50

Yup, found it, thanks.

The problem is that HD-DVD_title_info.txt is apparently created only after I've chosen which playlist item I want to encode. Since RipBot only shows me two items and neither is the one I want, HD-DVD_title_info.txt seems to be quite useless in debugging this issue. Same thing with HD-DVD_structure_info.txt: it lists only the same two items and none of the other ones.

The disc in question has 16 .EVO files and 16 .MAP files in the HVDVD_TS directory, along with one HVA00001.VTI file. While RipBot should show 16 (?) items in the playlist, it shows only two; both are very short video clips. The actual movie is "Feature.EVO".

Thank you so much for your efforts, I am finding it very useful indeed.

I have a dream function which I think would be hugely useful to many people and really easy to implement for you:

The option to losslessly encapsulate the video stream into an MKV file (which it already does, behind the scenes!) the same way you can do with the audio stream, and transcode the audio format to AC3 if it is a DTS soundtrack (which it already does).

At the moment I start a transcode going then drag the .MKV and .AAC or DTS files from the temp folder before its finished, then try and manually mux them but I'm missing something as they tend to go out of sync.

I have a Samsung Media 2.0 telly which supports everything except DTS soundtracks....so this little addition would make RipBot the ONLY piece of software anyone would need...... =D Certainly me...

Thanks again, for a really great piece of software. IT makes EasyDivX (from yesteryear), Gordian Knot etc. look really clunky!:thanks::thanks::thanks:

Try using MakeMKV or a combo of tsMuxer/MKVMerge to do this. You can also use Clown_BD which will demux all the audio/video files, and then use MKVMerge to bring the ones you want back into an MKV.

Question 1: The 2 latest version of Ripbot264 can not display Chinese(either traditional or simplified Chinese) file names appropriately. however, the older versions didn't have the same issue. I wish the next version will fix this problem. Thanks a lot. (Please check attachment 1a & 1b)

Whiskey, I'm getting exactly the same problem on my Vista64 set-up. When trying to add a .264 file the new version just hangs. There seems to be plenty of HD activity as if it's actually crunching the information, but doesn't display 'Gathering Informations...' at the bottom nor does it eventually open the file (I've left it for 20 mins trying). No codecs installed except ffdshow. Funnily enough, it will open .m2v files...

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling ffdshow, Haali and Avisynth, plus upgraded to the latest SVN 3036 ffdhow tryout but nothing there either. I even cleaned out my Ripbot cutom profiles and overwrote my .ini for a complete clean slate, but still no dice. Went back v1.14.2 and everything worked fine again...

Anything else I could try? Cheers in advance to anybody for any pointers.

I personally am thinking about switching back to x32 on my HTPCs when I get the final W7. I have my HTPCs working fine with W7 RC x64 but I am getting tired of always having to take extra steps or check to make sure I am pulling the right x64 codecs, program compatibility, etc.... My desktop PC runs Vista x32 (where I do all my ripping/encoding/testing, etc...) without issue. Funny you mention this as in my last post on my blog I made a sidenote about seriously considering moving back to x32.

However, and I don't want to dissuade you from x64, but W7 x64 should work properly with Ripbot

Excellent tool! One question: ripbot264 complaints that I don't have ffdshow rev xxxx installed, but since I am using ffdsdshow tryouts instead, I just disabled the warning in the ini and carried on. Will this have any complications?
I am very reluctant about installing the outdated ffdshow on top of the newer ffdshow tryouts.

Um its always best to use the latest ffdshow tryouts from the devs home http://ffdshow.info The reason is because it will generally work better..

The Revision number is the last one that was checked out as working by the Dev of ripbot264... Its best to use the most up to date releases to keep from having issues...

This (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout/files/SVN%20builds%20by%20albain/icl10%20builds/ffdshow_rev3052_20090803_dbt.exe/download) is the latest build to come from the stack..

However, and I don't want to dissuade you from x64, but W7 x64 should work properly with Ripbot
Thank you Damian. I think it might be wisest to do a multiboot with Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit. If I run into any problems with RipBot & BD-RB on Win7, it would be pretty easy to switch over to XP 32-bit.

Get the W7 RC x64 while you can (I think you can still download and get a key through mid August). This will be a good test before you actually shell out money. Of course you could also try W7 RC x32.

Its not complaining because you don't have ffdshow, its complaining because your copy of ffdshow tryouts is too old. Update the tryouts version and it won't complain.

Thank you so much for the update of this great applic!

I just did a quick test and found out that resizing is now set to x534 (720p) on movies with 2,40:1 aspect ratio (as mentioned in the changelog for custom resizing). When I use custom without locking it to that ratio I cannot change it to the x534. Only 532 or 536 is available.
What resizing values do you suggest for a 2,40:1 movie?

Atak_Snajpera
5th August 2009, 00:07
....x534 because it is closer to original aspect ratio.
1280/534 = ~2.397 -> 2.40 - 2.397 = 0.003
1280/532 = ~2.406 -> 2.40 - 2.406 = -0.006

If you want correct values always use locked aspect ratio instead of unlocked.

Thanks for the update Atak,
but maybe i miss something.....where is the "Blu-ray" option as Output????????????
(Blu-ray output with structure)

i see only mp4, mkv and avchd...


PS:

- i dont understand....yesterday i make a blu-ray disk using the version 1.14.2 or 1.14.1, dont remember which one,
but i had blu-ray output as option (maybe i'm going crazy!!), or this have something to do with the ffdshow or Avisynth
or MatroskaSplitter or ....what??

- if its only avaliable the "avchd" as output i think not all blu-ray player will play the avchd format (i think)

@Atak_Snajpera: I just wanted to say thank you for this great application, been using since I've discovered it a while back and I'm talking about second or third of your builds, can't remember. Keep up the good work and thanks for the updates.

@Blackwalker: No, you are not going crazy, Atak_Snajpera has changed the name option from Blu-ray to avchd a couple of builds ago, if memory serves me right. You will still get the Blu-ray structure if you use this option. Nothing has changed, only the name is changed.

I'll have to confirm, but I am pretty sure the AVCHD files I've been generating play on stand-alone BD players. My gf's parents have a Panny that plays them just fine, and I have a PS3 that has no trouble...although I know it is probably more friendly than some. It appears to have an identical structure to the previous .bluray outputs from RipBot. My PS3 and other stand-alone players have always identified the discs as "AVCHD" whether the files were .bluray or .AVCHD files from RipBot.

I hope that helps, but all that matters is your machine obviously.

Ooooops,

I made a mistake.

I am not sure if it was my stand alone player or PowerDVD that would not play this structure. The more I think about it, it is powerDVD that did not play it.

After all my conversions I use imgburn to build an .iso. I then mount the img and play it with powerDVD to verify the audio and subtitles.

Sorry I said my BDP-350 would not play it, my bad :o

do you read what Atak say before?
"old 'blu-ray' was in fact avchd"

so the structure has never been a true blu-ray structure!
it was/is a AVCHD, like in the previous versions!

Atak use a PS3 (i also own a PS3, but also other blu-ray stand alone players), maybe thats why he developed this
application, for PS3.

The bad thing is that he should post this in CAPITAL letters
in the first page, in the current and in all previous
version of this program, that the output is not a "true" blu-ray
structure but a avchd structure!

Whiskey, I'm getting exactly the same problem on my Vista64 set-up. When trying to add a .264 file the new version just hangs. There seems to be plenty of HD activity as if it's actually crunching the information, but doesn't display 'Gathering Informations...' at the bottom nor does it eventually open the file (I've left it for 20 mins trying). No codecs installed except ffdshow. Funnily enough, it will open .m2v files...

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling ffdshow, Haali and Avisynth, plus upgraded to the latest SVN 3036 ffdhow tryout but nothing there either. I even cleaned out my Ripbot cutom profiles and overwrote my .ini for a complete clean slate, but still no dice. Went back v1.14.2 and everything worked fine again...

Anything else I could try? Cheers in advance to anybody for any pointers.

Update on my situation with the new version... Still won't load raw .264 streams, but will accept them if they're pre-muxed into a .ts or .m2ts file. The previous version is fine with either so it is still strange...but at least I can use the latest version now.

Would just like to say thanks for the new Inverse Telecine option, Atak. Tested it on a few episodes of The Wire from the R1 DVD's and it works perfectly. Exactly what I needed as the previous field deinterlacing options didn't yield the right results.

The bad thing is that he should post this in CAPITAL letters
in the first page, in the current and in all previous
version of this program, that the output is not a "true" blu-ray
structure but a avchd structure!

Blu-ray output was evolving in tsmuxer. At the beginning it was just "Blu-Ray Disc" but after months people discovered that from technical point of view structure is closer to AVCHD. Then Roman (tsmuxer authos) was convinced to create "true Blu-ray Disc structure" . However this so called true structure is even less compatible with players!
There are players which require strict AVCHD structure. (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=144674). If you are not satisfied go to store and check which blu-ray players play files generated in RipBot264.

Still won't load raw .264 streams, but will accept them if they're pre-muxed into a .ts or .m2ts file. The previous version is fine with either so it is still strange...but at least I can use the latest version now.

First of all your ArcSoft decoder does not work. I suppose you forgot to copy checkactivate.dll to system path (c:\windows\system32 for example)
If you fix this then check FLAC option. eac3to will convert DTS-MA (lossless) to FLAC (lossless as well but better compression!). Once you have FLAC audio then Copy Stream will show up.

Thanks Atak...but just tried it and still won't open raw .264 streams.

Does anyone have any experience using ripbot with a quadcore AMD Phenom 9600?

I am looking at building a cheap encoder/player for my brother who is a teacher (limited butdget).

I use a Q9300 overlocked to 3ghz and it takes me about 5-7 hours to encode a bluray at 1080p, QF of 22, audio to flac.

I am not looking to build something that can do 5-7 hours, but under 20 would be great.

9th August 2009, 19:59
Thank you so much for your efforts, I am finding it very useful indeed.

I have a dream function which I think would be hugely useful to many people and really easy to implement for you:

The option to losslessly encapsulate the video stream into an MKV file (which it already does, behind the scenes!) the same way you can do with the audio stream, and transcode the audio format to AC3 if it is a DTS soundtrack (which it already does).

At the moment I start a transcode going then drag the .MKV and .AAC or DTS files from the temp folder before its finished, then try and manually mux them but I'm missing something as they tend to go out of sync.

I have a Samsung Media 2.0 telly which supports everything except DTS soundtracks....so this little addition would make RipBot the ONLY piece of software anyone would need...... =D Certainly me...

Thanks again, for a really great piece of software. IT makes EasyDivX (from yesteryear), Gordian Knot etc. look really clunky!:thanks::thanks::thanks:

I have now tried MakeMKV, which just crashes, hangs, reboots my pc, or interprets the ripped stream as 200 mb in size.

I laso tried manually mkvmerging....no luck yet.

I also tried ClownBD which gets me a lot closer but it wont put it into MKV for me (which my telly is uber-good at playing).

With .TS files, the telly plays the video stream but never the audio even though it understands AC3 eytc. etc.

MKV is the only way forward, and I am convinced that RipBot is the best beasty for the job.....Anyone else got any other suggestions? I'm getting a bit disheartened having failed so many times......I'm now manually MKVMerging the files from the temp folder of ClownBD......I just want to hit the buttons and go......I'll pray this 20th transcode works ok.

If not I'll just shrink them to 15gb with ripbot because the outputs from ripbot just work every time....

Yeah, unfortunately I probably couldn't swing that for him.

The Phenom 9600 is ~90 and the Q8200 is ~160. Almost twice as much in the states.

Most of the benchmarks I find on the net for x264 are hard to compare to ripbot given the different input files most tests use compared to 1080p bluray rips.

Yeah I can get the streams out no problem; Its putting them back in to a working MKV which is problematic.

I've used the EAC3TO gui before, not tried this particular one.

I actually succeeded last night in merging an MKV which stayed in sync. The audio stream was AC3 which I know the telly understands, but it told me the video stream was the wrong type on one. Gonna play with a few 4CC's but if it doesnt work I think it spells the end of my attempts - My telly simply doesnt like some of these stream formats you find on blu-ray.

Till now I'd assumed it was just the container that was the problem. Off topic..........this discussion now belongs elsewhere. Thanks for your help though.

Interestingly, the author has tested AVCHD on a Sammy BD-P1600. My new one turns up tomorrow, I dont have a burner at the moment but AVCHD transcoding sounds like the way forward then, albeit a 15 hour slog......

You don't have DVD burner?!? You can use DVD-DL as well instead of BD. Samsung 1600 is not bad but has one small problem which could be fixed by new firmware. It does not like movies encoded @24fps (movie butterfly on wheel for example). Video freezes (but sound is going) every 40 seconds for 10 seconds. 23.976 works without problems.

Yeah I have a DVD burner; The thing is If I have to transcode it, I can play it back direct through my telly right of the portable hard disk - I wanted to lossless rip it but it wasnt to be :(

I bet I get better playback quality from the blu ray player though (with regard to post processing of artefacts and block smoothing etc.), with the same video encode.

Now that would be an interesting experiment......

Hi.
First of all, thank you for this superb tool.

Now, i'm having trouble converting some videos. From what i have read on various posts here it could be some ffdshow trouble.

MKV files seems to have no trouble at all, but when i run a avi file with h264 or xvid codec trough ripbot, it runs past demuxing audio stream, then it just stops on "Please Wait, gathering information".
It does not move past this point, nor this it generate any error message(that i can see).

I've tried many times to reinstall ffdshow, avisynth and hali media splitter like previous posts tells us to do, also deleting the remaining files in program files, but nothing seems to work.
This problem is in both 1.13.3 and the new release 1.14.3.

Im running windows 7 64bit 7600. Clean install.
The only thing i did that may have disturbed something is to uninstall windows media player. I have reinstalled this now, but still the same trouble.

I've been searching though this thread for an answer but i just couldnt find anything that could help me.
I would really appretiate any hints that could help me locate the error.

Do you mind give some support to Neuron2 incredibly good NVTools? ;)

Thanks..

@Atak_Snajpera:

I have some DVD 720x576i50 sources (Pal interlaced TV-Episodes = Farscape Season 1-4)
and want to put them onto BD-R (each BD a Season of 22 Episodes)

Concept was:
- Recode with Ripbot to AVCHD with size of 1083MB per Episode
- Create Menu with multiAVCHD as AVCHD onto BD-R

After first step I found an issue: Ripbot encodes them as progressive.
AVCHD standard allows 720x576 in h264, but only interlaced (Panasonic BD35 video output went black with progressive material)

So is there a way to let Ripbot encode stream interlaced?

Did you try 23.976p as well?

not yet.

no.

Yes, I tried 24p and 23.976p too.
For 720x576(480) only interlaced content is defined in AVCHD standard.
And Panny is known for strictly usage of this defs.
25p (Pal) content plays well on PS3 for example.

My workaround till now is to upscale to 120x720p25. that works (but is not what I want)

try to just add --interlaced switch to your favourite profile and then save using different name for example Keep Interlace.

BBC HD changed their encoders on 5th Aug 2009 which seems to have broken RipBot264.
Transmitted video bitrate is now 9.4Mbps (was 16Mbps) h264.
Transmitted audio bitrate is now 192Kbps (was 384Kbps) ac3.

Here's 49 seconds of TS (1440x1080i 25fps 9.4Mbps) from the Nicholas Crane's Britannia part 1.
Britannia.ts (58.87 MB)
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?mmzutjwzjmw

Here's my non-working MKV from RipBot264 v1.14.3
Britannia-RipBot264.mkv (19.77 MB)
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?qdm0tzunijn
(the Britannia_new.m2ts file from tsmuxerGUI plays ok)

Here's my working MKV from meGUI v0.3.1.1053
Britannia-meGUI.mkv (19.88 MB)
http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?z50z2jmnnvu
(Demux the TS using DGA (dgavcindex) to give ac3 file and create 264 file using spec below. Mux 264 and ac3 into mkv)

The spec is in both cases is:
MKV, 2 pass, video bitrate=3216Kbps, audio=no change, frame size=1280x720, de-interlace=TFF 25FPS

The RipBot264 version is a complete mess. On the meGUI version you'll see some strange square noise blobs occur at 8 seconds. You won't see these blobs in the TS file but you do see what looks like noise occasionally if you move the progress bar around. This noise never happened before they changed the encoders.

The meGUI used AVC Level 4.1 where as RipBot264 used Level 4.0 but this could be a red herring.

RipBot264 v1.14.3 is using x264_x86.exe r1195M
meGUI is using x264.exe r1206 (manually updated from www.x264.nl)

I used TS Packet Editor v0.755 Beta to create the TS file.
FFDshow tryouts is "revision 3054 Jul 31 2009".
Haali splitter v1.9.42.1
I'm using MPC-HC v1.2.908.0 media player with ffdshow to play all the files.
The capture software is TSReader.
The encoding PC is a Core 2 Duo E8200 2.66GHz with 2Gbytes of RAM running Windows XP SP2.

Here's a comparision of TS files before and after the change of the BBC HD encoders using Media Info:
http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg276/34blw/bbc-hd-encoder-changes.jpg

The profile is apparently unchanged.
The ReFrames has changed from 2 to 4.
The Scan Type has changed from MBAFF to Interlaced TFF.
Both video and audio bitrates have dropped.
The BBC have stated that the picture quality has improved but all I see is lower bitrates - maybe I'm missing something.
Maybe the CABAC coding has changed.
The BBC are trying to squeeze HD over DVB-T sometime at the end of 2009 so I assume this is to keep a common transmission format.

Despite interlaced flag this source is in fact pure progressive. So don't deinterlace! Broadcasters tend to flag everything as interlaced so always rely on your own eyes.
1) If you see comb effect all the time then source is interlaced
2) if you see comb effect from time to time then source was telecined (very common used in NTSC world for movies)
3) if you don't see any artefacts then your source must be progressive

The RipBot264 version is a complete mess. On the meGUI version you'll see some strange square noise blobs occur at 8 seconds. You won't see these blobs in the TS file but you do see what looks like noise occasionally if you move the progress bar around. This noise never happened before they changed the encoders.
When I encoded your sample it looks ok

I can only suggest to reinstall ffdshow and other necessary tools.

Thanks - that looks much better.

the bbc output is being very picky in everything, i get the blocking in dvbviewer and then have to rebuild the graph for it to work.

thanks bbc, just when i had it all sorted out :(

I re-installed AviSynth 2.5.8, FFDShow 3054, and Haali 1.9.42.1

I encoded again with RipBot264 1.14.3 with no de-interlacing.
The result is the same, garbled picture.

I encoded with meGUI with no de-interlacing.
Again the result is the same as before - noisy picture at 8 seconds but otherwise watchable.

Tried switching FFDShow H264/AVC setting from libavcodec to ffmpeg-mt, no difference, switched back to libavcodec.

If you could give us any more information how to managed to create your MKV I'd be grateful, like the exact version of FFDShow your using.
