Hi Guys,

Im having some trouble and Im hoping someone can tell me where im going wrong :)

Im trying to convert some VC-1 stuff to H.264. The problem is the output files, instead of being ~8gb, are ending up ~700mb :-(

Im selecting the lock output size (to the 8150 one), not cropping/resizing etc - the preview script is playing fine - there arnt any errors on screen.

Here is the log:

i had the same problem a while ago. i uninstalled all videotools, filters, codecs and such (e.g. also the Combined Community Codec Pack), then reinstalled only the stuff required for ripbot. the problem never occured again since then.

Thanks for the great app, but one short question:
Is there a way to add more than one audio stream to the outputfile? :confused:

Too bad, this app runs faster and produces higher quality rips
than it's competitors. (HDConverttoX, Staxrip...)
The only thing missing is to add multiple Audiotracks and maybe a Statusbar during Analysis (at least in Win 7 it tooks some time, so youre not sure if the app freezes or just works in the background...)

Maybe it is possible to add the ML audio support in the next release, would make the app perfect!

You can do it manually. Just use the eac3to tool (get a gui for it, if needed) in the tool folder of Ripbot and extract any audio you want. After that mux the extracted file with mkvtoolnix.

whenever input file contains vbr mp3 audio track, the output file always has out of sync problem. what should i do? should i use EnsureVBRMP3Sync() as megui does for every audio track?

thanks.

I've got subtitle sync issue while encoding an anime :(
But just the ED karaoke, other than that it's sync'd
Sync issue shown in preview too (before encoding)

Already check'd the subtitle of source video and tried using other encoder, it's sync'd perfectly..
Any solution :confused:

Really need RipBot because it's very less time consuming :)

From 'trusted anime torrent site' (can I reveal this ? If not just PM, if it's necessary)

Confusing enough because just the ED karaoke not in sync and not every anime like this
I want to do a batch convert but kinda afraid this problem occurs in some other place (like in OP or mid)

lolwut? Did you even bother to read the rules??????????

Revealing the site has nothing to do with this. The forum rules explicitly prohibit any discussions or help on content which you don't hold the rights to and is illegally downloaded.

It wasn't a trap question, you only interpreted it like one :). There's a reason, well one of them, why rules are written and not passed on in other form from mods to users. It's so that one does not need to repeat and describe them in length each time a violation occurs. Asking a user to just read the rules which points out such things is easier than each time writing 2-3 full sentences and explain that such things are not allowed here and why that is. ;)

Anyways, back on topic ;)

hi there.

i tried your program, and LOVE IT!!!!

1 thing though... is it possbile to have some defaults settings set after the file get's loaded?

i did change the default profile, but
still need to change manually for every file
the
Size under properties, to psp,ipod
De-interlace to ttf -->29.97 (not sure what it does but makes my movies without lines in it)

it would be great if there was a profile for that

also if i change the mode from CF to 2-pass then i can set the bitrate for that movie. is it possible to change it to 1 pass?

keep up the good work

I have a fresh install of Windows 7 RC1, Core 2 Quad, 2 GB Ram and plenty of drive. I am trying to convert .m2ts files to stream to my ps3. I was having no problems on my Vista box (but haven't tried v1.14.3 from Vista) with these video sources (blu-ray .m2ts files). The issue I'm now having is this:

It gets through the "Encoding Audio" but seems to get stuck on the "Please Wait - Initializing".

I show a process by the name of x264_x86.exe using 25% CPU and 700k RAM. Nothing shows up in the Ripbot Logs folder.

Any ideas to get me going in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.

I've installed ffdshow_rev3052

Thank you,
Ken

what does it mean?. searched around but didn't find anything

It probably means that RipBot is handing a bad file name to DGIndex via the CLI.

O.M.G... I don't know how he will feel to use, demux, convert file size, video, audio, delay, convert video and cacul rating with video, audio size to fit on a standard disc? how many dos commands he need to do to optain an great gui and easy application make everthing we need in a couple of clics.

-Did you check "LOW PRIORITY" in the main page application?
-Did you have installed any application control and tunned windows?

-Did you check "LOW PRIORITY" in the main page application?
-Did you have installed any application control and tunned windows?

I tried with both low priority checked and unchecked. When it does the 2nd pass it works 100% but not 1st pass. I found another thread with another i7 owner complaining of the exact same thing with no resolution.

Also when I do the x264 HD benchmark, it runs at 100%. I'm not sure what's different with the first pass, but I think I could be getting much faster encodes if it would encode at 100%.

i try with RIpBot but wont accept this resolution...
i try with Clown_BD but give me error....
i try with Tsmuxer (i try with any settings), i hear the audio but no video!!!....
I try with mkv2vob looks ok, but the output its a .mpg file, if i remember well...and looks ok, but i'd like to
have it in m2ts. I try to rename the .mpg to m2ts and on my computer looks like it play ok (strange) with
mplayerc (media player classic).

I'd like to know, if there is a way to convert it to m2ts (that work!) without
loosing any wuality of the sound or video!

any suggestion?

Hope someone can give me a hand, thx

is it possible to increase the volume for the sound within the program?

I converted one dvd and you can hardly hear the sound.
(when the DVD plays itself, i need to crank up the volume
on the tv also)

Can someone tell me why Ripbot only uses about 40% of the processor on Pass 1 of an encode with an i7 920 CPU?

This is expected behavior (no matter what CPU) when using --b-adapt 2, which isn't optimally threaded yet.

My english is not so good, so if someone can tell me why, so the next time i'll not do it again :thanks: i'll be happy!!

Fast first pass does not require 4 cores. If you will edit ripbot264.ini to slow pass then you will get 100% on first pass as well.

You must add each track.

Ok, for this one the only subtitle tracks listed by ripbot are the ones for all dialogue in the movie, how do I simply get the forced subtitles for the small bits of foreign dialogue?

I've ripped it twice but the forced subtitles (if that is the proper term) don't show as they do in the original. So if they are embedded in the m2ts file then they are getting lost somehow. I'm lost on this one.

Yeah , right and 100% accurate? Did you know that TV broadcasters and some AVCHD camcorders tend to flag pure progressive source as interlaced? Every fast method based on mediainfo will fail! More accurate algos are slooooow as hell compared to my eyes.

Hello,

I did some DVD-recodes from a TV-series from DVD to mkv with ripbot. Now some of the mkv's are displayed with the correct aspect ratio (16:9) and some not.

Is there any possibility in doing something wrong in ripbot264 or to correct afterwards?

I am wondering whether there is a way to override the playlist selection made by RipBot264 at the beginning of a project. The vast majority of times, RipBot264 picks the right playlist, but every now and then it gets it wrong. When I have noticed this, it has been with BDs that have very long playlists with many chapters. It seems like the playlist selection is based on finding the playlist with the most chapters. In the most recent time I experienced this, the playlist (for a ~90 minute movie) had 70 chapters.

When this has happened I have forced RipBot264 to pick the right playlist, by removing all playlists except the "right" one from the PLAYLIST directory.

Is there a better way of dealing with this? I think I may be missing something, because I do not see any other posts on this issue.

Thanks again to the author for creating this fine application.

Ok, I got around it by downloading the correct subtitle track online, however I can't for the life of me find the same subtitle track (foreign dialogue only) on the original disc.

One subtitle track was the complete English subtitle for the whole movie, and the other seemed like a full English subtitle for hearing impaired (door closes, loud explosion, etc).

Seems weird.

I doubt that; I'm talking about the output of the first, not second, pass.

Sorry - ment the final output was playable..

i had the same problem a while ago. i uninstalled all videotools, filters, codecs and such (e.g. also the Combined Community Codec Pack), then reinstalled only the stuff required for ripbot. the problem never occured again since then.

Thanks for this - I removed the majority of my playback/decoding s/w and re-installed ripbot, avisynth, ffdshow and haali- Success!!! im now able to make properly sized files :D

ripbot264 v1.14.3 hangs on x264_x86.exe

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Earlier post I had submitted I was running Win7 RC. Now running Win7 RTM

I have a fresh install of Windows 7 RTM, Core 2 Quad, 2 GB Ram and plenty of drive. I am trying to convert .m2ts files to stream to my ps3. I was having no problems on my Vista box (but haven't tried v1.14.3 from Vista) with these video sources (blu-ray .m2ts files). The issue I'm now having is this:

It gets through the "Encoding Audio" but seems to get stuck on the "Please Wait - Initializing". I can leave it for over 24 hours and it stays stuck on this.

I show a process by the name of x264_x86.exe using 25% CPU and 700k RAM. Nothing shows up in the Ripbot Logs folder.

Any ideas to get me going in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. I've had no problems in the past using Ripbot and I love the program. Great job with the coding!

I've installed ffdshow_rev3052

Thank you,
Ken

I've run into an odd framerate issue. The original Blu-Ray is 23.976fps and the demuxed .ts is recognised as 23.976fps by Media Info. But Ripbot is analysing the video stream as 24fps... I went ahead with the encode anyway, and the created .mkv is labeled as 24fps and the A/V is out out of sync. However, I've remuxed with MKVMerge and stamped the video as 23.976fps and this re-sync's it back up. But, my question is...will the video quality be affected in anyway by this?

This is the best easy reencode program I have ever used, but recently I moved to windows 7 RTM 64 bits and I began to have problems with vc1 m2ts reencodes.
Although I have configured ffdshow to manage vc1 throught libavcoded, it always change back to wm9 and the result is ripbot264 gets an error message with mpc hc showing something like line 2 error (I don't remember specific message now).
Is is a specific windows 7 problem ?

Hi guys,
I have an MKV (1280X544) which is in 2.35 widescreen.

When I try to make a BD disc out of the MKV with TSMuxer, the disc plays back in squeezed 4:3 format...even though the MKV itself is in 2.35 and plays back properly on my PC.

What should I change in RipBot that would signal to TSMuxer that the aspect ratio is 2.35 (i.e. adjust under "Size" to HD Full, etc.? Do I need to crop?).

any help would be appreciated, thanks. :)

I loaded up the BD so I could encode it down to 720p. However, when I hit encode there is no info at the bottom of the ripbot screen saying what % it's at. It's completely blank. I don't remember it doing this on other encodes. I checked my CPU usage and it's 50% so it appears ripbot is going, and the temp folder has all the files in it. I just have no display to see how it's going.


Edit: Looks like I have the same issue as Ken does. x264_x86.exe is only using 620k of memory but 50% CPU.

Have a bit of an issue, trying to re-encode 'Cloverfield' blu ray to 480x272 with the PSP profile. It whizzes through the encode at something silly like 500fps and then gives me an MP4 which is only something like 8 minutes long.

@Atak,

I was curious of the command that you use when running BDSup2Sub. I have a BD that's 24fps instead of 23.976fps and the subtitle is out of sync.

I manually ran the following from the cmd shell:

% java -jar BDSup2Sub.jar 4_Subtitles_English.sup 4_Subtitles_English_1080.sup /res:1080 /fps:keep


Now, the sup file is 24fps instead of 23.976fps. I was curious if you passed other options.

Can i go 22? Or you could see the diference? I have a 48inch Plasma TV. And is QC better than 2 pass method? I know with QC i cant make the output size. So im gessing thats better right?

PS: and all the other programmes, like ffdshow, haali media splitter, do i need to change some of these settings? Or its all good if i keep it like it is?

I had the same issue. Wouldn't show up and no players could display it even though it appeared to be added when viewing the encoded video file with mediainfo. When trying to add the sub with build in picture, ripbot would just hang after the encoding was finished, freezing on "muxing".

Okay I did some more research. The only difference between 4.0 and 4.1 is bitrate. The author of RipBot feels strongly that there is no reason to go to 4.1. What does the bitrate mean in terms of quality? If there is no difference why does the standard exist? Thanks.

If your resizing to 720 from 1080 i have noticed that you need to select the the subs last after you have selected the resize. If you select the subs before you select the resize the subs remain at 1080 and wont be converted to 720.

I store my rips on a nasbox so I can easily stream to my PS3 (which I love oh so much)

this might be your problem! Ps3 does not show subs from .m2ts container! You must burn whole avchd structure on dvd.

I use Another EAC3toGui for forced subtitles, it burns them into the video. Makes things much easier when streaming to the PS3.

oh wow, I didn't think of that :), when I played them on computer (the whole AVCHD folder through vlc) it wouldn't acknowledge the subs either but if they need to be on disc then that could very well be the issue.

Thank you good sir, now if I can get this hanging issue fix I would be back on the grind :)

You can burn subtitles in ripbot as well. Properties -> subtitles

If I open up an "264" video, It should creat an Index file using DGIndex, right?
what if it does not?

When I open it, the "Browse(...)" button gray-out and the "Abort" button become click-able,
but it just stuck, nothing appear in temp folder

I know it's my problem cause it works great on other PC
but I have just no idea what's causing it.


Thank you.

Wrong. AVC files are indexed by DGAVCDec.

Change temp location in .ini

Actually, this 264 came from an MKV.
I just extract it out cause I don't want to skip the index creating step.

I loaded RipBot on the another computer wtih same folder and DGAVCDec ran without problem
so I'm just wondering what could stop it from running.

Indexing is only required if you want frame accurate access. When you just convert whole file (linear access) you don't need indexing!

30th August 2009, 19:09
Yah I understand that.

I'm just used to use index to find out if the video is corrupted due to some download failures.
It did help me sometimes, plus it takes only few more secs, so I always run in this way ;)

oh by the way, this problem only occur after I upgrade to 1.14.3, was using 1.14.2.

Sorry, I was not in front of my usual computer. This is the error I get when I am trying to re-encode a vc1 m2ts file.


Thanks in advance for your help !!

I'm also having issues with VC1 encodes. Whenever I do a VC1 movie, the process finishes in about 1-2 minutes with no file produced. AVC encoded movies work fine. I do not get any errors though, it just stops encoding.

Hi Atak,

I have a problem with the PS3 not detecting a .AVCHD file.
It's the first time I actually use RipBot264 and I quite love it, but I don't know why the PS3 doesn't want to play it.

I copied over the output AVCHD folder and all its subfolders onto a USB-stick, perhaps that's not the correct way to do it ?

I converted The Dark Knight without a problem with Ripbot (8GB mkv) but this was done when teh movie first came out on Blu Ray so it would have been an older version of RipBot

Where did you get the MKV file?

Hhhhhh, here we go again....:rolleyes:

As I stated early, I created an .mkv backup (as that was the best method that time) of my ORIGINAL dvd about a good year ago, I bought the DVD for, as far as I remember €6.95 if you want as much details as possible. I sold it on Yezzz! (a Belgium second held site for selling and buying second hand stuff).

I created an .mkv because that was then the best format regarding quality/size-wise.

I'll try to find an AnyDVD log file, hopefully it wasn't deleted since I altered quite a lot on my XP partition since then.

May I ask you a question neuron, don't take this as an attack, but why is the trend here to help and support countless touls that are aimed at creating an .MKV from a DVD, but once someone is willing to use that .mkv as an imput all hell breaks loose, and the pirate fingers are all around.

I now don't have the original anymore, and I want to watch the movie on my PS3, but this ones doesn't support .mkv (If I only knew that, I perhaps wouldn't have bought a PS3 in the first place, since I only use it for media, not for it's (crap) games)

May I ask you this serious request : PLEASE! BAN every front-end creators that allows users to create an .mkv file from a DVD source. At least then your own soul will be treated.

Ripped a Region "A" Disk. TSmuxer shows it as 1080i and Ripbot's "Media Info" as 29.97 fps. Its quite obvious watching the M2TS File that the Movie is interlaced, and needs to be deinterlaced.

I'm certain I did not accidentally change the FPS anywhere, as that's is, for all Intents and Purposes, rather pointless.

.ts or .m2ts file Loaded into Ripbot (without making any changes to the "Output Speed" or changing any "Default Settings" within the "Properties" Button), it shows as follows:

FPS: 1387.35
Frames: 12,391,495
Duration: 2:28:51:773

There is no Way it's 1387.35 FPS, nor 12 Million plus Frames. The only Thing correct here is the Duration of the Movie. So I go ahead and start the 2-Pass encode, and it tells me it takes 143 Hours to finish the first Pass.

So I abort, and try the 23.976 FPS Setting, hoping this might correct things, since most rips are 23.97 FPS.

And now it reads as follows:

FPS: 23.976
Frames: 12,391,495
Duration: 143:33:49:123

In other words, the Movie would be 143 Hours long when done.

Ripbot's "Deinterlaced" Function is greyed out, so obviously either Ripbot or the h264 Encoder cannot deal with it.

This is the first and only time I have ever run into this, and only with this particular Title.

Your average Movie has about 150,000 Frames, not 12 Million, so I figure it must be accounting for the interlaced picture portions, maybe not?

Nevertheless, what is the Solution for this? Where is the Hitch that prevents x264 encoding, preferably in under 300 Hours? With well over 250 encodings using Ripbot, I have never even run into even 1 single Hick-up with it, but this one has left me utterly dumbfounded.

Done. ---> 50MB Sample (http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=ebbfcb24fdd2d68d0c814df2efeadc50e04e75f6e8ebb871)

50MB (00001.ts_0) uploaded, done with DGSplit. Shows the first Half Minute Warsaw City Overview 1939 in Black & White as Background Lead-in Intro for the Main Movie Feature filmed in 2001.

I loaded that very first split Part into Ripbot and it reads as follows:

FPS: 1387.5
Frames: 44301
Duration: 0:0:31.932

Again, the "Duration" is correct, "FPS" & "Frames" are off.

The other Parts, even if renamed to .ts ... will not load into Ripbot without "avs" Error Messages.

I also copied a 50MB Chunk from the beginning of the Movie with TSRemux, and loaded that into Ripbot as well. All Infos were 100% correct. It appears DGSplit & TSRemux do not function the same Way when extracting a Portion. I sent up per your Request the DGSplit Portion.

However, larger than 200 MB Chunks extracted with TSRemux also show the Errors as above.

I also just tested this Movie by dropping it into "ConvertXtoDVD 3.51". Did the Job in the usual Time, burned the DVD-R, plays perfectly on my Home DVD Player.

"TMPGEnc 4.0 Express" correctly shows 267,685 Frames, but hangs after 2 Minutes of encoding to BDVM. Pretty much the same happens when encoding to DivX.

In "ConvertXtoBD" (or whatever that Front End is called), also lists the Movie as having more than 12 Million Frames, detecting it primarily as a "Telecine" Composition.

ok sorry never mind i installed the specific 3013 revision of ffdshow that comes in 32/64 bit revisions the never ones dont work and they keep the video playing when you close WMP so there are some issues stick with the clisd 3013 build until and updated one is required for RipBot264. also if your need any other codecs like divX and XviD install them after FFDshow. otherewise there will be problems with rip bot

Followed the Instructs to a "T" ... 3 Times.

Ensured Path to "TIVTC.dll" is correct.

No Command Conflicts exist within any of the Lines of the \RipBot264temp\job1\*.avs Files.

Within 1 Second of hitting the "Start" Bottom, I get almost instant Feedback that "All Jobs are finished".

I check the video.264 File, its Zero-Byte.

I noticed, that depite the Changes to the Script File, it still reads:

FPS: 1387.35
Frames: 12,391,495
Duration: 2:28:51:773

... in Ripbot's Edit Job Window after the "Done" Button was hit.

Below is an exact Copy of the "Show Script" Window used:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
#VideoSource

video=DirectShowSource("L:\BluRay\Pianist\00001.ts",fps=29.97,framecount=267,690 ,audio=false).ConvertToYV12()

#Deinterlace

Loadplugin("L:\Ripbot\Tools\AviSynth plugins\TIVTC\TIVTC.dll")
video=tfm(video,order=1).TDecimate

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

Update:

Used ---> audio.1 - Log.txt to get the Frame Count, which is off by 3 Frames when compared to the "FPS*Duration" Math. Also removed the "Comma" from the Frame Value.

Still not working. I then updated the job1.ini ...

SourceFPS=
SourceNumberOfFrames=

... to reflect the new accurate Values and its now encoding.

Much slower, but down to 4 Hours on Pass 1 which I guess can only be expected when De-interlacing/Decimating.

I'll let the Movie encode, will report back on Results.

Thank you very much for all your Help.

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

also i was wondering how to get subtitles from Bluray. Right now i use SubRip to rip them from DVD. prefered output is .ass/.ssa or .srt
Same. Use "Subrip" and make UTF-8 SRTs for Bluray.

Rip the *.sup from the Bluray too, then load it into Subrip.

You can also download them from here ---> Subscene (http://subscene.com/search.aspx)

You can try using BDSup2Sub to convert blu subtitles to dvd subtitles.
Wonder why they'd even think of doing that, since the DVD Sub Time Line is rarely, if ever the same as the Bluray Subtitle Track, even if you can convert Formats.

Check it out for yourself. Go to Subscene.com, download a DVD SRT and use it on a Bluray Rip. It won't match. You could use an SRT Editor such as 'Jubler' to "re-sync", but your Offsets would often be in Terms of Minutes, not just a Second or 2. You could spend Days re-lining up 1,800 Dialog Items to get them reasonably well dead on. And now and then a 30 Second Segment will be found on the Bluray that was substituted for another Clip on the DVD with more Dialog Entries, and you'd be renumbering the Works top to Bottom.

You actually need to do it once to know what I am talking about.

I suggest to just download your Subs for either your DVD or BD-Rip and save yourself a few Years of your Life. You can crack open the SRT Sub in Notepad, copy the contents into MS Word, spell-check, and make corrections to your Subs. Finding better than 200 Errors is not out of the ordinary, but then making your own Subs if you can't spell either won't make it any easier.

i have converted sub to srt because ripbot didnt like the .sub file that was in the mkv. I used subresync in vobsub to do this.

WHAT IS THIS???? DID I SAY TO USE commas???
Update:

Used ---> audio.1 - Log.txt to get the Frame Count, which is off by 3 Frames when compared to the "FPS*Duration" Math. Also removed the "Comma" from the Frame Value.

Still not working. I then updated the job1.ini ...

SourceFPS=
SourceNumberOfFrames=

... to reflect the new accurate Values and its now encoding.
I never suggested you did. It just dawned on me after I made the previous Post that I had inadvertently added a Comma, which as a Matter of Habit I routinely do. Thus I gave a Progression of my Actions above. Maybe someone can learn, as I did, what not to do.

Thx for all the Help. Will update on Results.

Error: The source file 'L:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv' could not be opened successfully, or retrieving its size by seeking to the end did not work.
Delete the \RipBot264temp\ Folder and everything underneath it, then try again.

Remove everything first, such as *.264, M2TS Files or anything else in there, or that you have set/copied there that is valuable to you, and move it elsewhere.

I recommend not to keep your Source Files (M2TS) nor set to have your finished encoded MKVs copied to \RipBot264temp or any of its Sub-Dirs.

Me suspects yooz tryan' ta write a new File with same Name to a Directory already containing a File with that Name.

@ Atak_Snajpera
Encoding Job came out Picture Perfect. Thx again for all the Help.

Have a Request ... not sure if this is in the Form of adding Features, or Setting Changes I can make myself.

1. The Re-encoded AC3 File gets deleted after the encoding is complete. Anyway to prevent that? I'd like to keep it.

2. Opt not to have the .264 & .ac3 file packed into a Container after encoding is complete. First Thing I do is delete the MKV anyways, as I pack everything myself to be written for DVD-R-DL Burning.

3. Option to load AC3 and DTS Tracks into Ripbot for re-encoding Audio only. Eac3to GUI always crashes on me, and is of no use. Currently, I just load any VC-1/264 into Ripbot, and then manually load any other DTS/AC3 Audio File on my HDD of my Choice to be re-encoded.

4. Manual Editing/Scripting to allow Custom-Setting of final File Sizes of encoding Jobs, and have these locked in permanently for Selection. For Instance, the current 8150 Setting for Dual Layer Media is 7 MBs over Disk Capacity for MKVs. I reset to 8140 to end up with a 7.95GB File that barely fits a DL Disk. Sometimes I forget to re-set it back to 8140 when starting another Job a few Days later, and then I have to re-encode the Audio, trim off the Movie End Credits, etc. to get the File Size down so I can burn it.

I'm still having issues with x264_x86.exe crashing on VC1 titles.

according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DVD-R_DL#Recordable_DVD_capacity_comparison . DVD+DL = 8152 MB.

That may well be. Fact is, an encoding Setting of 8150 packed into MKV results in a File Size that is 7 MBs too big for a DL. Test it yourself.

Regardless, my Question was ... if I can somehow make custom Scripts for these Types of Settings for the Reasons I already mentioned above. I'm not sure if the MKV Container adds much Overhead, but if it does, it's under 1 MB.

Both the packed MKV, as well as both the .264 Video File + AC3 with a Setting of 8150, will read 7.96 MBs, 7MBs too much for a DL.

I don't remember what the exact Setting Numbers for DL were in RipBot264v1.14.2, but the resultant encoded File Size was always 7.94 GBs, thus it never came to my Attention until I upgraded to RipBot264v1.14.3 and also overwrote the x264_x64/86.exe at the same Time, per your Instructs a few Forum Pages back.

Hoping you can point me in the right direction.

I have the latest ripbot, instealled AVisynth, ffdshow, haali media splitter and .Net Framework is the latest via windows update. AnyDVD HD. I get as far as it seeing the movie, I pick the chapters and audio file. It then tries to do something. After about 30 minutes a classic version of media player comes up with a blank screen. I have tried both directly from the Bluray and using AnyDVD to first rip to hard drive. Any thoughts? Using Vista 32 bit, c drive is main drive D drive is my storage drive.

Fails in both both audio and video encoding if I don't alter (resize) the video ?

Input is a TS file from DVB-S and plays fine, passes TS Doctor etc - so no issues with source.

If I set to 2-pass, but don't resize this fails after a few seconds. Looking at logs and running the CMD files manually I see:-

audio errors with
Input file must be WAV PCM!

video errors with
avis [error]: unsupported input format (DIB )
x264 [error]: could not open input file 'd:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\job1.avs'

If I put in a video resize (which basically adds the following line to the AVS job file)
#Resize
Video=Spline36Resize(video,640,352).Sharpen(0.2)

Then both audio and video encode fine ? ! ?

Any clue as to why this would be the case as I'm totally confused ! Why can't I take the original input of 544x576 as broadcast ?
I've converted loads of TS files and have always changed them to 640x352, but this is an overhead in the encoding and it's not really needed. But without it, RipBot fails to work :( And I've also tried several files that have previously encoded fine so its not the source (unless how I create them has always been at fault)

i think it might be a problem with 1.14.3 because this problem started once i installed the new version. i went back to .1 then .2 and everything seems to be working and i can even use AC3filter for playback. Before just to get ripbot to work i couldnt even have divx, xvid, ac3filer installer otherwise it would give me an error saying couldnt encode the audio or would say its encoded the video in a few secods when it really sdidnt do anything it just started and stopped. So for right now im sticking with 1.14.1 because so far it works with everything and ffdshow 3013

Same. Use "Subrip" and make UTF-8 SRTs for Bluray.

Rip the *.sup from the Bluray too, then load it into Subrip.

You can also download them from here ---> Subscene

Wonder why they'd even think of doing that, since the DVD Sub Time Line is rarely, if ever the same as the Bluray Subtitle Track, even if you can convert Formats.

Check it out for yourself. Go to Subscene.com, download a DVD SRT and use it on a Bluray Rip. It won't match. You could use an SRT Editor such as 'Jubler' to "re-sync", but your Offsets would often be in Terms of Minutes, not just a Second or 2. You could spend Days re-lining up 1,800 Dialog Items to get them reasonably well dead on. And now and then a 30 Second Segment will be found on the Bluray that was substituted for another Clip on the DVD with more Dialog Entries, and you'd be renumbering the Works top to Bottom.

You actually need to do it once to know what I am talking about.

I suggest to just download your Subs for either your DVD or BD-Rip and save yourself a few Years of your Life. You can crack open the SRT Sub in Notepad, copy the contents into MS Word, spell-check, and make corrections to your Subs. Finding better than 200 Errors is not out of the ordinary, but then making your own Subs if you can't spell either won't make it any easier.

right now what i do for DVDs (i have not fully ripped a Bluray yet as i want to finish all of my dvds first) is i rip the subs from the dvd using subrip to a .srt then eit the srt for errors using notepad and word.

so your saying its possible to use sub rip to rip the subs from blurays as well. i didnt know this was possible since it looks for vob's and ifo's which are dvd file formats

Ripbot264 will automatically encode as anamorphic if resolution is 1440x1080 , 1280x1080 , 720x480 , 720x576 , 704x576 or 704x480

I really don't understand why you need divx decoder??? Ffdshow HAS everything you need! Multithreaded avc decoder plus aac , ac3 , dts , TrueHd decoder ... and so on

i need both the decoder and encoder in order to use divx converter thats also the main reason why i need ac3filter. Also ac3 filer i believe does a better hob with most audio especially when u output through SPDIF. but that just my opinion. previous versions or ripbot had no trouble with the other encoders/decoders being there. but 1.14.3 has tons of issues and will try to use divx even if its no the default which is on since .1 and .2 were fine with them.

Also i didnt even try to look through that ini i didnt know i should have been ill take a look when i have some time late this week

Hi stryker412

I have come across this issue in one of my encodes, the movie name slips my mind at the moment, a while back.

What I did was I checked all the subtitle*.srt files that RipBot264 dumped under the job* folder and opened them up with notepad and checked them one by one.

Luckily I only had 2 subtitle*.srt to check. You might want to check the smallest of them all, when I mean smallest I mean in kb, as normally that is the one that has the hard coded subs.

Please don't quote me on that one as this might not be the case, but it doesn't hurt to try first.

Regards

EDIT1: Once you find the subs your looking for, go under "Properties" in "Picture Properties" window and on the pull down menu, should be third option, in "Subtitles" choose "Build in picture" to include it as hard coded subs.

I fixed this; I isntalled ripbot without uninstalling Klite meida pack (against Atak's recommendations). It results in the problem you describe.

Everything worked as long as I uninstalled K-lites FFDshow and installed the latest full one from the FFDshow site.

Try it - should get you working - I have ripbot and k-lite working on 3 separate pcs that way.

I have been using ripbot for almost a year now and love the program. Awesome job Atak!

I ran into a problem the other day, i loaded one of my movie (shinobi) and it loaded fine, it extracted the audio and video perfectly and i started the conversion with 2 pass 6000kbps and convert audio to ac3 640. It converted the movie in 4:28 hours but it didnt save the movie anywhere on my computer, i have plenty of hard drive space. So i figured i did something wrond an reloaded everything and it did the same thing. I tried to save it on another hard drive thinking that was maybe the problem but its still the same.

Hi,

If you want to use multiples language, you have another software available to do it.

HDConvertToX was offering multiples languages. I use it to convert and keep 2 languages. A little bit more complicated to used vs. Ripbot264. You need to know some x264 commands for filters (Addborders) etc.

But ripbot264 is very easy to use and fast understanding. :thanks:

Hi stryker412

You can try using MKVtoolnix, but unfortunately they wont be hardcoded or you can re-encode again, it's up to you.

If there is another way of doing this someone might post a different approach on how to do it. You can try and see if it works for you.

So i figured i did something wrond an reloaded everything and it did the same thing. I tried to save it on another hard drive thinking that was maybe the problem but its still the same.

Has this happened to anyone before?

Hi Atak! EXCELLENT prog........, EXCEPT the gray on white fine text on your GUI is VERY difficult to read on my 1600x1200 CRT! Is there a way to alter the GUI to make it more readable?

Is there a way to add chapter marks to a Blu Ray output project? I didn't see one, but the project I just completed had 5 min chapters "built in". I have a txt file with the chapter marks I need. How do I "input" those numbers?

One more question! I'm taking a 720x480 analog VHS "capture" & I want to "crop" it from the existing 4x3 to 16x9 with NO distortion. My output will be 1.78:1, 1280x720 Blu Ray. I can fudge around with the crop settings until I think it looks pretty good in the preview window, but is there a "standard" set of numbers or a "calculation" I can apply to do the crop?

Thanks & have a nice day!

MKVMerge GUI - do it manually

Or wait..... by Blu Ray ouput project you mean you are going to make an AVCHD disk out of it? That would be done with an alternative program, dont know myself.

If you are making an MKV deliverable then my answer still stands.

Just crop with 60 values and then select SD-NTSC 720x480 from the list (blu-ray also supports SD resolutions)

so your saying its possible to use sub rip to rip the subs from blurays as well.
Haven't ripped any DVD Subs since 2000 for DivX 3.11 and Nandub SBC encoding, and only by Demand by Foreigners on Usenet. Since DVD-Rs dropped in Price almost in-line with CD-Rs, I went the Way of DVDshrink/DVDFab and only removed Subs I didn't want, and thus never had any need to bother with them until the Blue-ray Era came around.

I have only used Subrip for Blu-rays, never for DVDs.

After you have ripped your Blu-ray Movie Title with AnyDVD, DVDFab, etc. to your HDD, load the largest *.m2ts File into TSMuxer, "Checkmark" and "Demux" the PGC Stream, which is usually shown under the Video and Audio Track in the "Input" Tab in the "Tracks" Window. (Sometimes you may have to load the Blu-ray Movie Title's proper Playlist in order to assemble the "itty-bitty" Pieces of the Movie, but that is not all that common. Every 50th Movie or so you'll run into one of these, such as "Hancock" with Will Smith).

The demuxed PGC will have a *.sub Extension, and you load that into Subrip, run your OCR, make your Corrections, save as SRT. You can download SRT Subs for just about every Blu-ray Title out there, you'd be hard-pressed not to find one.

vob's and ifo's
For Blu-ray, you "usually" look for the largest M2TS of the Disk ripped to HDD and load that into TSmuxer. Run Windows "Search" to find it in the Disk Structure, its always in the same Folder BD to BD. It will extract a *.sub File which you can load into Subrip

i am haveing a problem with ripbot when the latest version of divx is installed with ffdshow.
The "K-Lite Codec Pack" will now request you uninstall/overwrite your Existing DivX Software, basically uninstalling it. Most People don't realize they are playing with the "Re-format" Fire when installing Codecs & Codec Packages on top of each other. I only have the "K-Lite Codec Pack" on my Computer, nothing else. And everything works perfect, nothing else needed, not even WMP 11.

In Fact, I always install the "Windows XP Performance Edition" which has all MS Media Crap ripped out of it down to the Bone, thus never any Conflicts. I bet better than half the People out there with "Ripbot" Issues have actually created a major Codec Mess that requires the "Clean Re-install" Axe.

DivX/XviD is now the Codec Collapse of Rome. I don't like the DivX-**** anyways, they turned something that used to be a free MS Hack into Profit.

runs better on older systems its just my preference.
In Fact x264 uses less Resources for Playback than DivX, even on older Systems. Just install the appropriate Codec Pack, and Way you go. DivX is History. Always encode where Future Technology will be.

it didnt save the movie anywhere on my computer
Look for the Container you encoded in, by Windows WildCard *.mkv/*.mp4 Search. If you saved your Movie to the \RipBot264temp Folder and then deleted Ripbot's Encoding Cue, you likely dumped it into the Recycle Bin. Check there too.

Atak, Any chance of allowing the user to mux multiple audio streams rather than just one as it stands now?
All it takes is just a little Math and know-how in packing Containers.

I only had 2 subtitle*.srt to check. You might want to check the smallest of them all, when I mean smallest I mean in kb, as normally that is the one that has the hard coded subs.
They are just UTF-8 Text Files, that's all. The smallest simply has the least Amount of Text, usually those SRTs in English, those without any Lines for the "Hearing Impaired", or was saved to the ANSI Format.

Can I just add a subtitle track to an existing mkv if I find later that I missed them
Yes. As long as the Sub is Compliant with Matroska Specs.

If you are unsure use either CLown_BD or MakeMKV, but Ripbot will show you the playlists as well (see post here - http://dbone1026.blogspot.com/2009/07/ripping-episodes-from-tv-series-dvd.html)

It's in your Ripbot264v1.14.3\Logs\job[n]_log.txt (I'm using the latest version).

You should see something like this at the end of the log file -

What do you mean a standard mkv? You can use MakeMKV which will extract the core audio from the DTS-MA track, just leaving a DTS track. There is no encoding with MakeMKV like you do with Ripbot

i've used ripbot264 for almost a year now and i want to start doing bluray to avchd backups while keeping hd audio (dts-hd/true hd/etc.) in the form of lpcm or just stream copy with transcoded video to fit either dvd-dl (rarely) or mostly bd-r (for movies i really want to keep great video/audio quality).

i've been messing around the last few days and i got one bluray to work with lpcm by using stream copy in ripbot (nin beside you in time halo 22), but every other source i try upon muxing tsmuxer is throwing lpcm stream sync errors and it never muxes into avchd structure. also i see that ripbot downsamples from 24 bit to 16 bit when doing lpcm.

i tried using clownbd (eac3to) to extract the hd audio tracks and it works fine 24bit lpcm in .wav or w64 form, but if i try to add just a raw h264 stream and then the 24bit lpcm i get using clownbd it just sits there when trying to load the video source. even if that worked ripbot would just output a .wav that tsmuxer will reject. i tried exporting just video/hd audio into a .ts file from clownbd and it loads in ripbot264 fine, but there is no "copy stream" option in ripbot when loading lpcm in this method, it runs it through eac3to again.

is there any way to make this work? i just want to transcode the video to fit a dvd-dl/bd-r with lpcm 5.1 or 7.1 audio in avchd structure to play on my ps3.

i used clownbd to make a avchd structure with batman begins hd-dvd (original video/audio dolby true-hd) and burned it to bd-r and it works fine on my ps3, but it is smaller than 25gb.

is there a way ripbot264 can use the same eac3to settings as clownbd while allowing me to transcode the video to fit bd-r?


thanks.

Sorry I wasn't aware how DTS-MA tracks worked. I use ripbot because it is the only program (I know of) that will resize to 720p. I wasn't aware a DTS track is inside of a DTS-MA track.

If you don't have Arcsoft DTS-HD decoder installed then you get DTS-core (1,5Mbps)
If you have above decoder installed then you get DTS-MA decompressed to .wav or .flac
Decompressed audio can be converted to AC3 640 kbps (the same quality as DTS 1,5Mbps but 2.35 times smaller size)

Atak,

If I have a TV series BD title with multiple episodes, each with its own playlist and list of streams, it would be just lovely if the workflow could be streamlined a bit. You see, when I try to queue up each episode one by one, Ripbot needs to re-analyze the entire BD for the playlist/stream structure for each of the episodes I add. It seems as if that should only have to take place before for the first job. In other words, if there are 4 episodes on the disc, one must wait for both the disc analysis and the demuxing for each of the 4 episodes added to the queue. Everything else is just great!

stryker412

it just dawned upon me i can use clownbd to produce a tsmuxer compatible lpcm .wav and then launch ripbot, let it demux also, and then just feed it the .wav created from clownbd and stream copy while still having ripbot calc size and transcode video.

i'm doing transformers hd-dvd but i figure it should work, then i will do the dark knight blu-ray

So I installed latest RipBot264 right now and it says it needs ffdshow rev3065 or higher. How is this possible? ffdshow tryouts latest build is 3054. I don't see a higher revision anywhere.

What's your final bit rate? Is it compressed to a DVD5, DVD9 or BD-25?

im about to convert the england V croatia HD game. Im going to stick with 1080p 50fps and i want to make it ps3/xbox 360 compatible.

i intend using mp4. anything i should be aware of, ie aac being an issue (only has 2 channel sound) or bit rates to keep below and such?

1080p 50fps will only work on PS3 (level 4.2). Xbox360 does not support level 4.2!

@slow4mula
I will add extra conversion from.wav to .w64 later. At the moment I'm in Poland on holidays.

I've got 2 questions regarding ripbot264.

1. Batchconversions. When I have a couple of Videofiles who have all the same properties and I want to encode them all with exactly the same settings, is there any way to accomplish thatexcept for using "add" for each file individually?

2. I'm using Win7, the latest ripbot version and when I add a video ripbot never finishes the "Please wait... Gathering information step..." Any ideas?

does this not work anymore? I can't get 14.4 working under Windows 7 x64 because I can't get around the software check.

Nevermind, I got around it by installing the 32bit versions to the x64 Program Files folder.

There is problem with patched x264 32bit
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1324208#post1324208

mistype is 1.14.4 version. i test with 3 movies and samething. If i just change ripbot264 to ver 1.15.1 and left ffdshow ver, everythung is ok. samething with my new processor update.

thanks.

thanks. i've been extracting the untouched truehd/dts-ma hd tracks the last day and muxing them with transcoded video with your app and just setting the size appropriately in ripbot264 and manually muxing with tsmuxer.

maybe it would be more useful to allow keeping the untouched true-hd/dts-ma hd tracks than converting to pcm through ripbot?

Is it possibly to manually change the audo profiles in Ripbot like with the video profiles, or are we stuck with the options Ripbot gives us?

Good Morning,

I have a problem encoding HD-DVD-material using the HIGH 4 profile..
There is a green marging at the bottom of the picture. You can see another stripe with blurred color over the black bottom margin.
How can I avoid this ?

Thanks alot for your help.

That is what I was planning to try. How are your results? Any audio delays or other problems with playability?

Is this because Ripbot cannot (or will not) mux the TrueHD into an MKV? It would be helpful to know what is and is not allowed as far as audio goes with some sort of chart and what can be wrapped into what container. Also, why do people need the TMT DTS-MA decoder when ffdshow can do it now?

ffdshow can't actually decode the DTS-MA, it just decodes the regular dts core, not the -MA part.

Ripbot is a great tool but I do on occasion get errors with mp4box during the muxing stage. This problem does not happen with every movie but when it does, it doesnt matter what machine it was encoded on it always fails during the muxing stage.

I'm using the AppleTV preset with a video bitrate 6144 and audio set to 448 AC3. I will let ripbot264 complete the encode and mux it to a mkv file. The mkv is discarded since the appletv cannot read it. While the newly created audio.ac3 and video.264 files are still in the temp folder I use MP4Box to create a *.m4v file. I've know this work as I have done this over a hundred times in the past with videos on the appletv to prove it.

MP4Box supports the import of AC3 streams now. I'm using the example of a mp4 muxing that RipBot264 uses in the job1_MuxFiles.cmd file. I just remove the chapters section, since those types of chapters are not supported by the appletv, and the rename of the audio and output file names.

Example of mux command line.
"C:\Program Files\RipBot264\tools\mp4box\mp4box.exe" -tmp "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp" -ipod -brand M4VH:1 -add "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\video.264" -fps 23.976 -add "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\audio.ac3":lang=eng -mpeg4 -new "C:\Movies\New Movie (HD).m4v"

Attached is a screenshot of the MP4Box error.

I appriciate any help on this. It only happens on about 1 out of every 20 encodes.

Thanks.

I have no idea but it did fix my issues. Just make sure to rename the existing x264 in case it doesn't work but at this point if the original doesn't work at all, what can it hurt?

that worked, all good now ;)

nope it works pretty good actually. i've done two blurays with dts-ma hd and a few old hd-dvd discs and one bluray with dolby truehd and they all play fine on my ps3 without issue no audio sync issues at all. standalone players should play them fine as well i would think, but i dunno i don't see the point of a standalone blu-ray player over a ps3.

1. i just use clownbd to rip out the dts-ma hd/dolby true hd audio track from the source

2. input the bluray rip as usual into ripbot and select no audio.

3. i subtract the size of unaltered audio track from 23830mb (bd-r size preset in ripbot) and select two pass and input this value into ripbot so i don't have to calculate it myself. i would factor in ~200mb additional to the size of the audio track to make sure you don't transcode too large of a video track. i did a couple movies where the resulting video track was a little too large after muxing with the unaltered audio track and i had to cut some of the credits with tsmuxer or re-encode the video track again.

3. mux the video track from ripbot and the unaltered hd audio stream with tsmuxer to bluray and burn to bd-r.

bd-r discs are coming down in price, i've seen name brand stuff dip below $3.00 in quantities of 15, so for a movie i want a good backup of i am willing to spend a few bucks (plus some in electricity lol with these twp core i7 setups i have).

atak could add this functionality pretty easy i would think so it is as simple as creating a dvd-dl backup using ac3 5.1/dts 5.1 audio. it would be cool to see that happen since there is no reason to convert to lpcm for all hd audio sources. it just wastes space and possibly could lose quality. it also makes incompatible lpcm tracks that tsmuxer errors out on with sync issues. that is why it just dawned upon me to use the unaltered hd audio instead of converting it to lpcm. the only benefit i see to lpcm is it might be more widely compatible to some standalone bluray players? i know ripbot will always take 24 bit hd audio and downsample it to 16 bit to save space, but why even do that? also if you just mux the original hd audio track you don't have to screw with installing any kind of dts-ma hd decoder like arcsoft because you aren't converting to lpcm.

i would love to see ripbot just load a bluray playlist with the option to truly stream copy the dts-ma hd/true hd tracks and just transcode the video without using multiple tools. all clownbd is comprised of is eac3to and tsmuxer (i believe). this will truly be the optimal method as bd-r media continues to fall in price. even every 7.1 dts-ma hd track i have seen is only 5-7gb, so that still leaves a great deal of room for the transcoded video.

the only drawback with manually muxing with this method is you lose the chapter points, so the default is 5min intervals after this, but i don't really care about that at all...i think the predefined chapter points are pretty useless and would rather have fixed intervals. i'm sure there is probably a way to keep original chapter points with tsmuxer, but i could care less.

and just imho i still liked hd-dvd better as a format over blu-ray. honestly you don't need near 50gb of space for a damn movie. 30gb is more than sufficient with a good 1080p encode and writeable hd-dvd dl would probably been cheaper than bd-r.

i just did the king kong hd-dvd -> bd-r with this method and to me it is one of the best looking movies ever to be released on either format. it fits comfortably on a 30gb hd-dvd with hd audio and it is over 3 hours of runtime. i still wish hd-dvd was around so we might have gotten cheaper writeable 30gb discs. oh well.

here is my vote for true stream copying of hd audio tracks with ripbot :)

with a blu-ray to bd-r backup keeping the original audio track intact my original blu-ray could burn in a fire and i wouldn't feel like i really lost anything :) for $3 bucks and some time that is definately worth it to me.

again thanks atak for writing such a bomb gui/application. we all appreciate it!
