Thanks for the nice app! However, here I have some questions and problems:
1. If I replace the original x624 binary with daily builds from x264.nl, RipBot264 just won't work. So is it possible to manually update the x264 binary?
2. When a file is loaded, the audio sample rate is grayed out and cannot be changed. Is it possible to down sample 48kbps to 44.1kbps?
3. RipBot264 seems not to work with .vob file. When I load a .vob file it just sticks indefinitely showing "Please wait... Gathering information...". Is this a bug or RipBot264 simply does not support .vob file as source?
Thanks again!

I just converted two DVDs to AVCHD. There were no problems with VOBs.
Maybe you have some misconfigured filters, some Codecpacks or something else...

Hi,

first of all: thank you ATAK for this massive peace of software. I use it for nearly 1 1/2 year. But I miss something. I try to explain:
I'm from germany and the BDs in german language have that feature that parts in the movie are translated using only parts of the german subtitle (pieces of labels, newspaper headlines or something different the movie itself contains). Do you know what I mean? So it must be defined in one of the files the BD contains that only some subtitles of the hole _german.sup-file will be used.
So i only want to know if there's any way to include this function in RipBot264. So that i don't have to clean the .sup-file containing only the translations. That would be great. If you don't know what I mean I could try to explain it in an other way!

The other question: is it possible to use RipBot264 in a complete x64-framework. I mean RipBot264 with ffdshow x64. I hope that the hole progress runs much faster with x64.

I'm sorry for my bad english but i hope anyone can help.

Regards
Sascha


EDIT: I've read post #6247 so my first question is answered. Can anyone help me with the second question?

@Stasi:
RipBot264 ist leider kein DVD - Tool. Für solche zwecke lege ich die GDATA Davideo 2007 Ultimate ans herz. Habe damit zum beispiel eine Audio-CD von meiner Slipknot-Disasterpieces DVD gemacht. Du könntest also ein möglichst Qualitativ-hochwertiges AVI kodieren und dieses dann mit Hilfe von XMediaRecode in ein mkv umwandeln! Dadurch kann es auch nicht passieren das deine Videos asynchron werden! Viel Glück!

it would be possible but also very painful. You would need everything recompiled for 64 bits. Avisynth 64bit , Haali Media Splitter 64 bit , FFDshow 64 bit and AviSynth plugins (Yadif , audio plugins and so on ... and so on...)

Hi Atak,

I've retry conversion with the newest x264 files followed in previous post and that problem is the 3rd time i've seen this trouble.

After project done, the project are not writed on the disc:
Ex: E:\MOVIE FOLDER.AVCHD

I've manually try "job1_MuxFiles.cmd" and it's okay, BUT...

IF i have more than 2 jobs, the job1 is dead, not possibility to remux (due to .264 converted file in the Temp dir. *if my knowledge is good).

I've seen that trouble 2-3 times previously from the 1.14.5 version, and 1.14.6 just make that trouble right now.

Thanks!

P.S. the x264_64.exe new version is correct. It correct the trouble, but i've only convert 1 movie right now.

@8ternity I know when I tried the included 64bit version of x264 I was getting a ton of VBV Underflow errors in the log files and when time came to mux, frame numbers between the two passes didnt match so there was no file output. Not sure if your problem is the same but check your logs directory. For me I just reverted back to 32bit version since it has been very stable for me.


x264 [warning]: VBV underflow (frame 35995, -40684 bits)
x264 [warning]: VBV underflow (frame 35996, -6364 bits)
x264 [warning]: VBV underflow (frame 35997, -153116 bits)

Hi!

I currently have a problem when inputing any video file (be it avi, mkv or anything) in RipBot.

While it should be demuxing the audio in a temp directory and show the track in the audio part of the soft, it doesn't do it.

It keeps showing [NO AUDIO] in the Audio drop-down.

Any input on this?

Nobody has an idea on what is wrong here please?

@Atak_Snajpera

I did read first post very well :
Q: What does 4.1 profile do over 4.0 and would 4.1 be better for working with HD DVD/Blu Ray discs?
A: According to wiki maximum bitrate in 4.0 high profile is limited to 25Mbps. 4.1 is limited to 62.5Mbps. That's all!

As I said I am new to all this and cannot understand anything regarding terms used in ur tool ... I just want the converted video to be @ 35+mbps ... coz I recently downloaded a TS file that is amazing quality and uses HIGH@L5.1 Profile ... I don't trust my judgment on creating my own profile I want the Pros to do it coz am afraid to mess stuff up ...

All I need are 2 professionally configured profiles HIGH@L4.1 & HIGH@L5.1 .. That's all, for a conversion closest to original ;)

P.S : Didn't you like the installer I made ? You made one already ?

Please help a brother out :thanks:

Hello,

my problem with ChapterXtractor was fixed restoring my old system and now using ripbot264 v1.14.6.

But one problem unfortunately stays:

I ripped a HD-DVD with the Fox-Tool ;-). Now I selected the feature-film EVO-file and ripbot264 demuxed audio and video so far so good.

But the preview shows a green bar all over the encoded film on the bottom.

What can I do ?

Atak_Snajpera
9th December 2009, 15:02
Reinstall Windows Media Player . Make sure you have the latest version. I'm not sure if 12 is available for xp.

@PsyChoses
Default 4.0 profile is enough. Period.

Wishbringer
9th December 2009, 15:24
First I wouldn't ask you for changing your profiles (It's your program and you programmed it to be able to use custom selfmade profiles too).

But if someone tries to convert a 90 minutes HD film (from a BD50) to a BD-R25 and wants to archive full capacity of BD = 23500(?!) MB,
he will get a nice undersize with level 4.0!

Maxrate of 25Mbps for video would lead to 3.125 MBps and 640 kbps for audio to 80KBps = around 3.2 - 3.3 MBps
Would lead on a BD-R25 (23500 MB) to 7120 secs (around 2 hours)

A 90 minutes film would only take 17.4 GB at max bitrate of level 4.0
Thats why I changed my selfmade profiles back to level 4.1 and higher vbv rates:

Example:
--level 4.1 --preset veryslow --tune film --min-keyint 2 --keyint 24 --slices 4 --aq-mode 2 --aud --nal-hrd --vbv-maxrate 62500 --vbv-bufsize 32768
--profile high is default

Thanks for your reply.

Do you mean a new MP is not only necessary for viewing the encoding without green bar but for correct encoding?

I encoded in the past and the resulting mkv had a green bar too when played with my HTPC and a PopcornHour.

I think this is the most obvious thread in which to ask this particular question.Its an odd one,but there we go.

I want to change ordinary standard 2.35 Aspect Ratio to 2.45 in Ripbot264.
I can correct overscan on my LCD by using the AddBorders,however using this Avisynth command does not alter AR.

I have tried BilinearResize using various (WWW,HHH) but the preview script,although showing the AddBorders change,does'nt seem to alter the height,thereby changing the Aspect Ratio.

I know its an odd request,but its a personal thing,which I won't bore anyone with.Just my fascination about AR's fom my CRT days,when you could mess about with them using the service menu.

Just to be sure.I don't want to crop.I want to maintan the whole image,simply with the AR changed. I would add that this involves both SD and HD sources.

Can anyone suggest something I can pursue.

Many thanks

Why don't you use uncompressed audio if your target is BD-25???

@Albion
Did you check if you can disable OVERscan in tv? Majority of todays tvs allows to not use stupid overscan .

I tried Profile 4.0 man after 6 hours I found out that Baraka lost 15 to 20% of its original quality and was grainy
I wonder how did you calculate this loss of quality ? :) Did you create some awesome AI algorithm ?

if you get corrupted image in preview it means:
a) bad rip
b) broken vc-1 decoder (Windows Media Player)

Yes I have.Although I can get into the service menu in the LCD monitor (37in Toshiba) for some odd reason changing the values makes absolutely no difference.Its appears to be stuck with factory parameters.

This,of course would be the fastest and most suitable solution,or buying a new LCD with 1:1 scaling,however that is not possible at present.

Option (say via RipBot264.ini) to not apply the Sharpen(0.2) to the resize in the job.avs file.
Whilst I respect and appreciate it is the developers preference, it isn't for all of us. Whilst it can manually be removed from the file before encoding, if can be annoying if you forget !

Man I have been trying to tell you I have no clue what I am doing, I am no video expert, plus visually I saw the MAJOR difference between Original and encoded ... Plus FYI Baraka is visually sensitive coz it has been filmed in 8K format which is huge, then downscaled to 2K and 1080p ... So you can imagine the quality ...

So please enlighten me as to what to do, in Media info on one of the files I recently downloaded says HIGH@L 5.1 in profile so it's possible to achieve that range of quality ... I am what you here consider a MEGA n00b ... And please stop telling me how HIGH@L 4.0 profile is enough coz I have proof that I cannot upload due to my upload limitations ...

If you accept to help a brother out, be precise and explain every step ... Explaining how to achieve better quality BluRay Rips, what options to enable/disable/change, and if higher bitrate means higher quality .. No good guide anywhere that's why am asking ...

Else just create the 2 Profiles I requested and you won't hear from me again ;)

Thanks !

Atak,

I noticed that I was able to convert my X-men 3 Blu-ray and select 5.1 AC3 when using the new version of RipBot. Just finished converting the movie and the sound has come out all tinny. Picture is perfect but something happened with the conversion to 5.1 channel 640kbps AC3.

Any ideas?

Thanks

I've also noticed distorted audio with your sample. I will have to ask madshi if this is a problem with ArcSoft decoder or with eac3to. Can you upload your x-men 3 sample again (50 MB .m2ts to www.mediafire.com)

Thanks Atak

Question for the Gurus: I've been encoding a lot of movies recently using Constant Quality (CQ). Why are the output results always so different for similar length movies. I've noticed that some movies create a 5gb 720p file on CQ 15 while others create a 9gb file on CQ 18?

It's like some movies just compress MUCH better than others? Is there anything I can check beforehand to detect which ones will need a lower or higher CQ because I find myself re-encoding the same movie a lot using this option. I'm aiming for a 6GB 720 file.

All my movies have a 640kbps audio track

Thanks

Typical reasons for the difference in compressibility among movies would include:

1. The presence of many high-motion scenes, indicating an action film, versus other film genres. Think "The Matrix" versus your run-of-the-mill chick flick :D
2. Tricky source material, e.g. noisy/grainy picture. Think Darren Aronofsky's "Pi"!
3. Not exactly having to do with compressibility per se, but definitely affecting the file size you are targeting: Different video duration. You wouldn't expect encoding the extended cut of, say "The Return Of The King" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0167260/) to result in the same filesize with the normal cut, when using the same CQ value. There's a 50min difference

Atak,
Great program. Thanks for all your support.
1 question...
1. When converting a mkv file to AVCHD with DTS audio (bitrate: 1536 Kbps, sample rate: 48 Khz, 5.1), I generally change the audio option to 5.1 Aften, 640kbps, AC3 instead of leaving the xxx stream-copyxxx as the default audio. Is there any benefit to more stable play back on my stand alone blu-ray player (sony bdp-s550)? I feel like the playback is sometimes buggy. Sometimes, I will get only audio but no video for a minute, then it pops up OR the tv just says no signal. Sometimes, reloading the DVDR+DL disc makes it work. I'm trying to figure out if this "bugginess is a result of my encoding options, or if it a problem with my bluray player, or my reciever. My Pioneer reciever can play all audio including DTS so I am not sure why I keep changing the audio? I guess I'm doing it because I think the AC3 is "more stable"? Does this make any sense? Would love to hear your opinion.

If it helps, I usually 2-pass, lock the size to 8150MB, choosing AVCHD as my output, and burning to a DVDR+DL.

Thanks in advance,
Philippe

My specs (with all HDMI cables going into the Reciever):
Sony Blu-ray player BDP-S550
Pioneer Reciever VSX-819H
TV is LG 37" HDTV

Great program, thanks a lot for creating. I've successfully encoded some of my 1080p mkv files with ac3 audio to 720p to save space and the 720p look great. A few questions:

1. Can I keep HD audio from mkv container if I leave at copy stream?
2. I have a recording from media center that I've converted to mpeg. When I play the video and audio are in sync. When I try to use ripbot to reduce the size the audio becomes out of sync with the video. I've also used mkvmerge to seperate the video and audio and both are the same length. Using Ripbot on the two separate files also results in out of sync audio. Any ideas? I'm using the high 4.0 HD.Bluray.consoles profile.

Thanks again.

Hi Atak,
I am using your marvellous program for ripping video for my Sony X Series (NWZ-X1060) Walkman. But 2 channel audio setting is upto 128kbps. I wish to use, higher 192kbps audio setting too.

Can you please add this setting under the "Audio Profile" preferences? (Being: 2.0 CT, AAC-LC, 192 kbps [abr])

Or, can you give me the way, how to apply this setting?

Thank You...

14th December 2009, 15:44
@APorter819
temporary solution to your problem
1) change extension of your file to .m2v (for example sample.m2v)
2) open .m2v file in ripbot
3) enable inverse telecine function
4) set audio delay to -750ms

After this i have perfect audio synchronization. I don't know if this works with your whole file. Let's hope that audio delay is constant.

@magmo
did you have the same problem in older versions of ripbot?

blacksapprow
14th December 2009, 16:07
Hmm,
The hint, seemed to me like an effect type Atak!

For 2 channel audio 128kbps is a really low bit rate by means of audio quality. The cinema sound is much lower in quality than a studio recording. I didn't only requested it for only choosing 192Kbps use. I may use higher 256kbps and 320kbps setting when necessary, if possible of course!

English/USA or other country specific films generally recording in real time with microphoses "outside" not in dubbing rooms. Therefore hearing the speech is really a matter sometimes. Increasing the bitrate might be helpful in many cases.

This setting is not only necessary for me here. It might be useful to others...

For aac 128kbps isn't low.
http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?title=AAC
Reaches transparency in most samples and for most users at around 150 kbps
Movies aren't much different from music in that regard. From my experience with the NeroAAC encoder movie and tv audio tracks usually come out smaller than the average music track at a given quality settings, so the psy-model the encoder uses thinks they are easier to compress.

Moreover movies are alot easier to compress. Stop asking me for placebo effect , ok!?

@APorter819
temporary solution to your problem
1) change extension of your file to .m2v (for example sample.m2v)
2) open .m2v file in ripbot
3) enable inverse telecine function
4) set audio delay to -750ms

After this i have perfect audio synchronization. I don't know if this works with your whole file. Let's hope that audio delay is constant.


especially in movies :)


Thanks for your help. I had to set the audio delay to -1100ms.

So after rummaging around I found the solution to my 7.1 FLAC problem. See the problem is most devices (PS3, XBMC, etc.) have a problem with 7.1 FLAC directly. EAC3TO can easily downmix to 5.1 FLAC. Unfortunately, it requires demuxing the completed file, processing the audio with eac, and then remuxing the audio back in. So it is possible, but tedious. Since RipBot uses eac3to already, would it be possible to add a 7.1 -> 5.1 FLAC DownMix option? Or is there someway I can add it to the script before encoding?

Any help would be great. Atak keep up the great work!

Atak,

I have a quick question in regards to CQ vs 2 Pass. I know that 2 Pass should be used if you need to burn your media to a disk. Other than saving disk space, what is the benefit of CQ? Does CQ produce a better picture quality that 2 Pass?

I really do not need to burn my media to disks since I used a WHS to store all my Blu-rays and then stream them throughout the house to all the clients.

Thanks in advance,

Duramaximus

quality should be the same at the same file size. No need to waste time and space for 2-pass.

quality should be the same at the same file size. No need to waste time and space for 2-pass.

OK, thanks great to know. With that being said, I already have several Blu-rays completed at "2 Pass" encoding. Can I re-encode these using CQ or will that degrade the image quality.

Re-encode will always degrade image quality.

Hey all,
Any hints as to why RipBot may be eternally stuck @
'Gathering information' after Demuxing streams is successful:
BD 'GI_Joe Region B, Ripped with AnyDVD.
Tested same rip thru BD Rebuider & HDConvertToX without
any sort of issue > RipBot the much preferred GUI...
Have to eventually abort the process to close.

And how about a 7.1 non-flac Copy Stream option? (I don't care about dtsma and truehd stuff, I just want NO flac 7.1)

Ok, you got me on this one. If you don't convert to FLAC, how are you going to retain the 7.1 audio? Dolby Digital does not allow for 7.1. I don't believe there is a "standard" for 7.1 AAC. Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA cannot be muxed into either MKV or MP4. What would you do with it or am I missing the point?

Why not use Nero AAC Encoder for best quality encoding? License issues maybe?

And settings for custom audio bitrates would be nice too.

Other than that, I don't have any complaints.

there is no best. Nero encoder cannot be redistributed. Quality is comparable. Period.

@prospeed
what streams did you select in gui? Does this happen with all your movies? Did you try to reinstall ffdshow,Haali media splitter and avisynth?

small test
1) When you stuck at 'gathering...' do not press abort. Instead go to job1 folder and copy video.mkv to new folder.
2) close ripbot
3) open copied video.mkv in ripbot.

Does it hang now as well?

Also show mediainfo report of that copied video.mkv

Failed Disc: Terminator Salvation Australian Version BR

v1.14.6 - After a lengthy wait for it to demux and what-not, I'm greeted to MPC-HC open running an AVS error message, something about something else "not talking to me."

Going to try again with .5, if that fails I will screen cap the error message for more accurate bug report.

The BR uses Seamless branching for two different cuts of the film, might be the problem.

EDIT: I've used .5 release for 3 other BR's and they worked fine. I haven't changed any codecs or anything since then either.

EDIT: Failure with .5 too. The error is:

"DirectShowSource: RenderFile, the filter graph manager won't talk to me (D:\temp\ripbot254temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)"

this is the getinfo.avs file, the first line is blank, the second is what you see here...

"Nero encoder cannot be redistributed."
You can make as others softwares: you don't redistribuite Nero encoder inside RipBot ... some of us already have Nero encoder, and we can copy and paste Nero encoder inside the RipBot folder
(if we want to add and use Nero encoder).
CT-AAC at low bitrates under 128 kbps is better, but at higher bitrates like 192 -320 kbps Nero is superior.
"Quality is comparable."
The quality of audio encoded with Nero at AAC 448, 640, 832, 960 kbps is not comparable with audio encoded with CT-AAC at maximum AAC 320 kbps. It is better.

Atak_Snajpera
22nd December 2009, 01:23
The quality of audio encoded with Nero at AAC 448, 640...
At such high bitrates AC3 is transparent so I see no reason to use something alot less compatible with players. There is more AC3 hardware decoder than AAC.

CT-AAC at low bitrates under 128 kbps is better, but at higher bitrates like 192 -320 kbps Nero is superior.
Sound in movies is not the same as music from CD! Therefore you don't need ridiculously high bitrates!

Well I finally managed to encode Terminator to a 720P MKV, 2-pass, dual layer disc size (7.95Gb). However during some darker scenes near the end of the film I noticed some macro-blocking.

I used the default settings, is there anything I could/should change to improve the quality of dark scenes for future encodes? I honestly don't care if it makes encode times longer, I do it during the night when I'm asleep, so the PC has 8 hours to do whatever.

Cheers.

I've been using the Apple TV profile for quiet a long time, doing a two pass bit rate set to 6144 and never had any issues with any of my content. Time and file size are of no concern to me however I've had some free time and started playing around using same profile and using CQ 18 and CQ 20 instead of 2 pass and have found I'm getting random blockiness in my test encodes. For instance the opening sequence of Monsters Inc where the Disney castle and then the Pixar logo come up are blocky. Playback of the rest of the encode only showed two more instances of blockiness. Everything else looked good.

Now playback on the PC looks fine and issue only shows up when I stream to the Apple TV so I know the problem has to be with that device just not sure why the Apple TV would be displaying the issue.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I do plan on redoing my test encode with 14.5 just to see if issue is reproduceable with different version of x264.

Thx

Check if the file has been encoded with --weightp 2. AppleTV can't handle that. You can encode with --weightp 1 or get a better media player.

My question is:

Would it be possible to add support for full Dolby digital 5.1 in mp4 format?

also is there a way to rip blu-ray video in full quality "source bit-rate" to mp4? this is because i want to rip my blurays to mp4, but i want to keep all the picture detail in full, as goes for the video.

thanks in advance, Downfall

i want a long term solution for ripping my blu-rays, i don't want to have to re-rip them to another format depending on compatibility.

In case of performance and easy handling your tool is unbeaten, but is there any way to let you rethink your decision not to support multiple audio streams? Sure I can mux with other tools, but why not doing it allinone? The fact that I'm not the first asking for that maybe helps changing your mind?

best regards and thanks for all your effort in doing such a nice program...

Remuxing from one container to another takes only few minutes! Just use MKV. You can expect even more devices with mkv support in future. Even now you can buy blu-ray players with mkv support! No need to use stupid limited MP4!

I try to load in an AVI file and MPC pops up and say "There's no combination of filters to render the stream" something like that. I installed latest K-Lite (It has latest rev of FFDShow and Haali Splitter) then uninstall and reboot and reinstall. I also tried installing FFDShow, Avisynth and Haali manually (not using K-Lite). It will stil show that. I'm using the latest RipBot.

For DOWNFALL:
Dolby Digital in mp4 ... is not a good choice, now many players cannot read this, but this can change in future. Use mkv to keep Dolby Digital 5.1.
If you want to keep "all the picture detail in full" and to keep Dolby Digital 5.1 ... you don't need conversion to mp4 or mkv ... just play the original .m2ts video file from the Blu-Ray folder (if you have more than 1 of these .m2ts files from a Blu-Ray movie, join them in one .m2ts file with tsMuxeR )
If you want to save space ... you can use the latest version of RipBot264 with CQ=20 and the picture will be almost the same as from Blu-Ray, or use CQ=22 for more space saved.

About transparency ... MP3 is transparent or close to this, for the majority of people, at 192 kbit/s , and this doesn't stop people to use FLAC at around 800 kbit/s or for Blu-Ray movies to have much higher bitrates.
For classical or instrumental music, for me higher bitrates makes the difference (I see that also others use and demand FLAC for classical music instead to be satisfied with MP3 at 320 kbit/s) ... but for Blu-Ray movies I don't care for higher bitrates, because for me the image of the movie is more important than the audio (but for others the audio quality in 5.1 and 7.1 channels is more important than the image quality at movies). For videos filmed by me with Dolby Digital 448 kbit/s it is important to keep the maximum audio quality, in mp4 with AAC 448 kbit/s.
Some people hear better than others, and the transparency is not equal to all.
The transparency, I think, is influenced by the music genre, by how good or bad the listener hears, and by the audio hardware (transparency cannot be the same, for the same music, on a stereo audio hardware and on 5.1 or 7.1 audio hardware).

@nurbs. Thanks for quick response. I'm not using weightp but am familiar with it not working on atv thanks to a change in Quicktime. I did go back to 14.5 and ran my test encode and spot that was consistently blocky on the atv was no longer blocky. Now there may be other areas that are blocky but am going to have to sit down and watch the entire flick just to make sure.

Cheers.

Just to be sure, you know that --weightp 2 is the default on all current x264 builds. You have to explicitly disable it if you don't want to use it.

You could just use the 4.0 Bluray Profile. I don't notice any difference from the original Bluray movie. If I'm just putting a Bluray movie/tv shows into a mkv container I use Makemkv (TV shows) or use command line of eac3to (movies) to put movie into mkv container. Both these option will allow you to get rid of the extra items on the bluray that you don't need or want.

@nurbs. Damn did not know that. Will modify my profile accordingly. Out of curiousity wouldnt I see blockiness on all encodes with weightp being enabled as I have not seen it using my current two pass method?

Thanks

nurbs
23rd December 2009, 18:02
I'm not 100% sure, but I think the blocking you see is related with the frame reordering x264 does when --weightp 2 is used. The reordering practically gives you 2 free reference frames in some cases. In my own encodes (720p; --ref 5) those extra refs are only used very seldom ( <1% in the final statistics ). They are used more often in encodes with less reference frames from what I have seen, but I only did a few tests. I think you can only see the artifacts when this is actually used and I guess it's also related to how much of the picture actually references those frames.
Of course everything I wrote might be wrong since I don't know how the encoding works in detail.

If you don't actually need the Apple TV I'd recommend a WD TV (http://www.wdc.com/en/products/index.asp?cat=30). I got the one on the right for 80€ (+100€ for a 1.5 TB harddrive) and it plays practically everything you throw at it. My own encodes (AVC, AAC and VobSUBs in MKV) play fine. Even the muxed subtitles work. I hear the Popcornhour and Xstreamer media players are also good.

mmmmdonut
23rd December 2009, 22:52
@nurbs. I think you are correct and may explain why 14.5 didnt exhibit issue (*still have to watch full film to confirm) since weightp wasnt turned on/available in the version of x264 that was bundled. Going to do another test with 14.6 and starting off with weightp disabled (0) as that is route handbrake folks went for their apple tv profile and see if the issue is resolved. If that looks good I'll bump value up to 1 and see where that leaves me.

Again thanks for your help.

nurbs, great suggestion. However, if I may. I bought two of the WD TV Lives' (one in center of your link). One big thing the Live has over lower priced first WD is DTS downmixing.

I love them. Taking one overseas with me ! :p

24th December 2009, 14:06
Defining --weightp 0 to the Apple TV profile and encoding using CQ 20 produced a nice file with no blockiness. I'm going continue testing trying a value of 1 out of curiosity but from reading handbrake forum weightp is broken on the Apple TV and so you must set this setting to 0.

Thanks again nurbs for your assistance.

On separate note on media player choices while I know the atv isnt best device out there for most folks due to lack of codec support however it does provide the best interface of any media player on the market and integration with iTunes ensures you can get legit content easily even if its drm'd to death. If I were to move away from it I'd probably move to a mac mini.

nurbs
24th December 2009, 14:27
--weightp 1 works with CoreAVC 1.9.5, which also can't do --weightp 2 correctly, so I think it should work with Apple TV as well.

it does provide the best interface of any media player on the market and integration with iTunes
The interface of the WD TV is not at all pretty, but functional. Best interface is highly subjective. Personally I prefer interfaces that simply let me browse folders on a harddrive.
Furthermore I'd view having to use iTunes as a negative point. The store is nice (for DRM free audio at least), but I view the whole device syncing with iTunes and such as an unnecessary complication to a fundamentally easy process (open two explorer windows; drag & drop; done).

liudnux
26th December 2009, 08:46
@liudnux, try BD Rebuilder.
Somehow RipBot seems more convenient to me :) and I haven't seen in it any features except possibility to add multiple audio tracks at once.

So maybe I will repeat my questions, maybe Mr. Atak could make some suggestions?

First, maybe it's possible to make a possibility to pause a job? For instance, I'm trying to make a 2-pass 1080p video, started in the morning, and now, in evening, I see that job will be done after 19 hours...
Maybe, if it's not possible to make that in the middle of second-pass decoding, it is possible to make a pause after first-passing?
Second question - RipBot reads chapters but without names - maybe it is possible to add this feature?
Third question - possibility of ripping of extra features (trailers etc.) included in disc, maybe this could be possible?
Fourth question - possibility to select multiple audio tracks to add to mkv container at once?

And the last, new problem. I can't convert any video anymore,- instead of getting window of selecting quality of video etc., I get D:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs::Avisynth audio #1
ACM Wrapper::Output error. Tried restarting Windows, extracting RipBot to new clean folder, tried several different movies - always the same result...

I don't need extra audio because I like more original soundtrack. It does not matter if movies is in Chinese (Shaolin Soccer...) or Korean (My Sassy Girl...) or Thai (Ong Bak...).
I was raised in country where you don't have stupid dubbed versions in cinemas (Full translations with native actors). Whenever I hear Brat Pit or any holywood actor speaking in German or in Hungarian I laugh (I've got colleague from Hungary at work :) However There was one exception. I liked more Polish version of Shrek because jokes were adjusted to our culture. Also actors' voices were well chosen.

I figured out the problem. When I click the + button, RipBot is by default looking for the .sup in the location where I have my rip and not the job1 folder. I simple have to navigate to the job1 folder and select the file. Weird as I never had to do that before. Must be a Win 7 thing? Or, maybe because I have RipBot and my Blu-ray rip on two different drives.

I've tried every program (AltMKV, Staxrip, MeGui, you name it). I like the simplicity of RipBot but what I really like is that I can rip my DVDs that have DTS audio to MP4. It appears BeSweet (which Staxrip uses) doesn't support DTS so you have to transcode the DTS soundtrack using another program. RipBot does it!

However there is one thing holding me back from making this my #1 program. I rip music video DVD's where the DVDs are ripped into chapter VOBs so you can build playlists of music videos from different artists. A typical music video DVD may have 15-20 chapters. With Staxrip, I can just add the entire folder of VOBs, specify settings and go. With RipBot I have to individually add each vob, change the crop and deinterlace settings (it doesn't save those from the previous job for some reason) which is WAY time consuming.

Keep up the good work. If you have add the ability to add several VOBs at once, it will be a killer program!

Thanks for the info about Haali update. I will install it because I'm not encoding right at the moment.
There's probably no benefit for people who encoding 24/7 to risk an update because the x264 is where the speed comes in.
I don't see a new version of Haali have any real performance gains but i could be mistaken though.

I don't need extra audio because I like more original soundtrack.
I was raised in country where you don't have stupid dubbed versions in cinemas (Full translations with native actors).

The same here in Romania ... in cinemas and at tv, all movies have the original audio, and we read the subtitles for all foreign movies.
But ... for cartoons is a different story, these are dubbed, for kids who cannot read the subtitles.
Here are DVDs and Blu-Ray with cartoons with original english and dubbed romanian audio, and I want to keep both audio in mkv or mp4.
The kids who don't understand the english language, and cannot read, need dubbed audio, at cartoons.

...I want to keep both audio in mkv or mp4.

RipBot does extract all available audio. You simply need to locate the extracted audio and add in the appropriate command line option to RipBot's commands to mkvmerge.

(Assuming an .mkv container):
1. Find your RipBot temp folder and the appropriate job folder.
2. Locate the additional audio file you want to include, taking note of the filepath and filename.
3. In that same job folder, find the [YourJobNumber]_MuxFiles.cmd and edit it with notepad.
4. Based on the information you see for the other audio file, you can put in the appropriate commands to include this second audio file as well. Read up on available commands in mkvmerge here (http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/doc/mkvmerge.html).
5. Save your edited .cmd file.

*Note: Be sure to triple-check your typed commands, as any mistakes mean that mkvmerge will not be able to properly mux your file. If you have a queue, your encoded video file will be overwritten by the next in the queue. Obviously, with no muxed mkv file and an overwritten video stream, you will need to re-encode the video again. This has happened to me twice on 40 hour encodes. :mad:

I regularly add additional audio streams, and also edit this to include default languages for the video and track names for the video and audio. Works like a charm everytime.

Hope this helps!

I just updated to the following:
Avisynth_258

MatroskaSplitter_1.9.355.21
mkvtoolnix-unicode-3.0.0

previously had:
Avisynth_257
ffdshow_rev3119_20091027_clsid
MatroskaSplitter_1.9.42.1
mkvtoolnix-unicode-2.9.9
(I have mkvtoolnix installed separately on my hdd, I didn't modify the one in the subfolder of ripbot)

and now ripbot seems to hang up on gathering information or extracting frame. AVS2AVI.exe seems to be what's hanging up. anyone else have the same trouble? I'm tryin to determine which update caused the issue.


edit: it's the ffdshow, went back to 3119 and everything works fine again

Anyway to have ripbot just "bake in" some forced subtitles without re-encoding the video again? I forgot to do it the first time, so I now I have an already RB encoded vid that's missing important forced subs.. I'd like to get em burned in there without encoding the vid twice and losing quality.. Or will I have to start over? Thx

2) for now do not use FFDshow newer than r3164!

anything else wrong with the new Haali? I hardly ever have anything in vc1, and even if so it'd probably be in a wmv, not an m2ts
however I'm hoping the added x64 support might help encoding and such

Atak. I'm trying to rip tv episodes from a bluray, but for some reason, when I try to demux the first playlist in the list, ArcSoft reports an error and the demux fails. This is only happening with the first item in the list, the rest of the episodes demux fine and is happening on multiple discs. I'm not sure if it's the commands Ripbot is sending that are causing the issue or what. But its strange that its only happening on the first item all the time. It seems to fail right at the end before it says "Gathering Information."

For a temporary fix, is there a different way to demux and then convert to flac? I'm not really that experienced so I'm not sure how to do it manually.

Edit: I demuxed the playlist manually with tsmuxer and put the .dts file into ripbot. When I did, it said "extracting DTS core." I assume this means I only have 5.1 audio now and no flac? Hopefully you can find out why arcsoft only fails with the first item in every list. thanks.

I installed .NET Framework 2.0 (now MeGUI works) and the encode started and also finished but it showed the BePipe error at the beginning. I also don't see the output file too. The speed was like 103 fps! Something is wrong?

EDIT: Nevermind. I kept on retrying with new files after installing .NET Framework 2.0. So in case someone else was looking for a solution to this problem, all the changes I've done since this error shows up were (in order):

install .NET Framework 3.5 (didn't work when I only install this)
install .NET Framework 2.0

and it worked after the two installs above.

PS: I am converting at 124 fps !!! nice.

Yes, I had... but I'm not using any codec pack, and I can't understand, why RipBot suddenly started to show these error messages, then they dissapeared, and now, again, I can't rip anything, only see MPC trying to open getinfo.avs

Another nice feature easy to do.. is when you click on Properties (ex : setting the build in subs). it will reprocess script probably (Gaterring informations).. that's why it take some time before this window close .

Can you just don't do this step is the user enter a second time in the Properties Window without modifing anything.

Agree, but it's only when the user click twice in the properties button (second time, he change nothing).

suppose this case :

the user click on properties, set the subs, close the window. After that he manually change the .bat, and go back into the properties and change nothing.. for me the setting that the guy change should be the script he modify.

so I don't see why reloading if the user didn't change the settings in the properties window the second time.

(because I have no idea was the source code look like, I can't say it doesn't make sense, but as a programmer, I don't see the point of the second refresh.)

Is there a way currently to add another audio track into the mkv file that ripbot264 creates? I currently have it downmixing the True HD DD or the DTS HD file but I would also like to add the DTS track to the outputted mkv file.

MuLTiTaSK,

Got one more quick question for you if you can help and are still around. In the cropping section of ripbot264, if I am going from a 1080p source to a 720p downconvert should I even worry about cropping? I see that if I do select autocrop on 1080p it does remove the black bars but on the 720p it just adds them back when I select that resolution.

Also if I did keep it at the 1080p and cropped out the bars, would it look wierd on my tv since cropping the bars changes the resolution of the video, ie 1920x1036.

pacaveli211

you want to crop so x264 uses all bitrate for the movie and not waste them on the black areas you dint remove by not cropping
but as far as resizing goes i dont know much about how RipBot264 handles that department but many factors come into play in this area but i use StaxRip for my encodes and there are many settings to help in this department RipBot264 users have to chime in here sorry i cant help :(

Auto Aspect Ratio Signaling (don't disable!)
In case no resize filter is used or the aspect ratio error exceeds the defined maximal value StaxRip signals the enccoder to write the aspect ratio to the bitstream so players that support aspect ratio signaling playback still the proper aspect ratio. It's highly recommended not to change this option unless you know exactly what you are doing!

Auto correct crop values (don't disable!)
Forces safe mod values for cropping. It's highly recommended not to change this option unless you know exactly what you are doing!

Auto crop borders until proper aspect ratio is found
Automatically crops borders until the proper aspect ratio is found.

Auto Force Film Threshold (Percent)
Threshold at which force film is applied automatically. It's highly recommended not to change this option unless you know exactly what you are doing!

Auto overcrop width to limit aspect ratio to
On small devices like the iPod it's recommend to restrict the aspect ratio to 1.8 and overcrop the width instead.

Bottom
Disable auto crop to force static crop values.

Custom Source DAR
Custom source display aspect ratio which overrides the automatic detection and uses the format 4/3 or 4:3 or 1.333333.

Custom Source PAR
Custom source pixel aspect ratio which overrides the automatic detection and uses the format 4/3 or 4:3 or 1.333333.

Cutting Mode
Defines how to cut.

Decoding Mode
Defines if audio should be processed without decoding if possible or if decoding should be forced with a certain decoder.

Left
Disable auto crop to force static crop values.

Maximum Aspect Ratio Error
It's highly recommended not to change this option unless you know exactly what you are doing!

Output Mod (use 16!)
Value for the output width/height to be a multiple of. It's highly recommended not to change this option unless you know exactly what you are doing!

Remind Not To Oversize
Shows a reminder if the target image size is larger than the source image size. It's highly recommended not to change this option unless you know exactly what you are doing!

Hmm... on my first attempt with 1.15.0, I noticed a much different result than 1.14.6:

1. I use eac3to to demux BD video and audio into .mkv and .dts.
2. If the video is AVC, I use mkvtoolnix to merge them into an mkv.
3. If the video is VC-1, I use RipBot264 to re-encode the video to AVC with a COPY STREAM of the audio, muxed into an mkv.

Normally RipBot264 with a CQ=18 will produce a near 1:1 size/bitrate and quality copy of the video. With 1.15, however, it decreased the bitrate from 21.2Mbps to 4.2Mbps. Same 4.0 profile, same CQ=18, same stream copy for audio. What's changed?

yes, the resize auto adds the borders to preserve the AR (you wouldn't want to stretch a 2.35 to 1.78). if you want to crop and resize you may want to see if you can use the custom resize. I'm re-encoding right now so I can't check any of those options to see if it might work =\. Keep in mind if you do crop the letterbox bars off that it won't be compliant with bluray players and will have to be readded if you want to burn it as a bluray / avchd. if it doesn't seem to properly allow you to do the custom resize with the crop you may have to run it through twice to achieve the desired results

Hi there...

Could we have an option to NOT downmix to 16bit all audio streams?

The Popcorn Hour C-200 can player 24bit FLAC, at the moment I'm using eac3to on the audio to get a 24bit FLAC audio track and then muxing the video output of Ripbot264.

I know I asked before but this was before the Popcorn Hour C-200 was upgraded with FLAC audio support, it's becoming quite popular standalone player so would make sense imo.

This is probably due to the update in the X264 executable. X264 had some internal changes that affected the way CRF values are applied. All you have to do is lower your CRF value until you reach a form of quality that is comparable to your older encodes.

I posted with the same issue earlier. Originally I used CRF=18 to get close to a 1:1 bitrate from VC-1 to AVC, but until someone hashes out the change to x264, I'm going to use 2-pass settings with the desired bitrate set to the original bitrate.

It would also be nice to get 24bit FLAC. I don't understand the reason for downmixing it to 16bit?

Hi I'm having a problem with mkv's and ac3 audio. I'm converting some tru-blood eps to mp4 to play on my ipod and everything goes great with no errors. The problem is that i have no sound after the first 50 secs or so. After its shows what happened on the previous episode I get no sound. I don't know what the problem is but the original works find in mpc.

In the ripbot temp folder it has the audio.acc file which is the same way. There is a 2_audio_Undeterminded.ac3 file in the job1 folder. I'm assuming thats the ac3 file that was demuxed from the original mkv. I'm using the latest ripbot. I've tried several eps and have the same problem with all of them. Can someone anyone help? I've search for answers but not having any luck. I've been trying to figure this out for days now. I'm not sure what I need to post so that you can understand whats going on but here are a couple of files.

Here is the job1.ini:

I'm using Windows 7 64 bit. I tried this in Xp and have the same problem. I'm able to upload the original mkv if needed.

Thanks for any help.

Yes, I know that. But will it, when it rips the movie and processes the subs with bdsup2sub, grab just the FORCED subs and build those in?
Forced subs we need. All the rest of the english subs(for english speaking people) we don't need.

Typically I rip with eac3to and then I take all the english subs I ripped and open them in bdsup2sub. It tells you if there are any forced. If there are then you export just the forced and import the idx file into mkvmerge(or build them in the image with ripbot). Then you get just the forced and none of the other subs you don't need.

@sifulee, you need read forum rules. In particular rule 6 as the file you are talking about is clearly obtained off the net.

Yikes i'm sorry guys... i'm a very very long time lurker and it looks like my first post will go unanswered. :(

I have now read the rules and hope I can be forgiven as I'm sure most of us bought all there video content ;) and never obtain any of there files off the net. :rolleyes:

FYI I've been using Ripbot264 for years now and this is the first time I've had a problem. Well its not that big of a deal since everything else works just fine. Its just really weird to me because all the eps of TruBlood that shows you what happen 'previously' exhibit the same problem and stop playing audio right afterwards. The first two eps in the first season encode to mp4 perfectly with audio. Wish I could figure it out. Maybe someone is kind enough to seen a PM with suggestions.

BTW thanks for the wonderful program. Its one of the best!

i don't understand why you need 24 bit audio at all? Do you even know what is difference between 16 bit and 24 bit audio???

Something tells me that you should select file with BIG FORCED label. Just demux all subtitles next time ,ok?

This happens if stream has mix of 2.0 and 5.1 channel audio. Commercials are encoded in stereo but main show is in 5.1. Decoder will add silence if number of channels is changed. Blame that guy who encoded that file.

This explains it pretty well: http://www.tweakheadz.com/16_vs_24_bit_audio.htm

I have a nice 7.1 setup in a large room. I may just be able to hear a difference between the two.

Either way, it's nice to have choice.

I have yet to get ripbot to successfully rip anything. Was just curious if it would process the forced subs before I continue on with the troubleshooting process. So it's good to know it does.

Granted 24 bits represents a noise floor well below the hearing range. 16 bits has a noise floor down at the bottom of the range of human hearing as well.

Do you really like placebo effect? Do you know also that movies may have fake 24bit audio? 16bit+empty 8 bits? Or even upscaled 16 bit audio?

Yes, I know that movies MAY have fake 24bit audio. But not all do.
With harry potter and the half blood prince when ripping the truehd to flac with eac3to it recognized that it was 16bit + 8 empty bits and removed those 8 bits and ripped as 16bit. Which is fine. Obviously nothing lost there.

But i'd rather ripbot didn't take a real 24bit recording and downmix it.
It's nice to have choice instead of it being decided for you.
Though with the positive review for clarkdale and the upcoming ATI 5670 and lower end cards I may just go back to bitstreaming.

Placebo is placebo. Period. If you cannot hear difference why not save some space by using 16bit?!!? Unless you have bat's ears and you live in sound proof room with ultra high end equipment!

Hello -
Is there anyway to tell Ripbot to process a series of files. I've got about 30 files I've moved from my Tivo (and converted to MPGs) to my PC that I'd like to turn into MP4s. Each show is between 8 and 16GB, and adding them individually to the job queue makes you wait while it indexes each file. I'm wondering if Ripbot allows one to do something like prepare an input file with a list of files that it could read and process.

Thanks in advance

Atak_Snajpera, got a question

Does noise reduction uses GPU?

I have two machines,
one has Intel I7 and GTX280, when encoding PAL DVD with noise reduction i get about 100FPS on pass 2
second machine has AMD Phenon 9550 and onboard geforce 8200, when encoding the same PAL DVD with noise reduction i get about 2fps on pass 2

Also on the second machine when using noise reduction causes the screen to shake/shiver.

eac3to it recognized that it was 16bit + 8 empty bits and removed those 8 bits and ripped as 16bit. Which is fine.

Atak cannot change how EAC3TO functions it can only imput a different command line parameters. Remember, Ripbot264 is simply a GUI that controls many different programs.

I just converted BR disc Santa buddies that my kids got for christmas. eac3to automatically reduced depth from 24 to 16 without errors and no empty bits text was shown, it's something that just automatically happens with eac3to with everything I've ever converted.

@Atak_Snajpera

Thakns again for the software! So far I have been able to test a few things out without any errors. I do have a question for you about how this should work or if there is a work around for the issue.

When doing a 1080P encode I have no issues cutting out the black bars, but when I do a 720P encode with Auto crop on and chose the HD for 720P setting, I get the blackbars readded.

Is there a workaround for this?

Question for those who convert SD material. After producing an mkv it looks like the video is interlaced but not sure why. I tried to redo the file with interlacing options but nothing worked. This only happens with SD material (aka DVD rips). If I convert with Handbrake it does not happen. What setting do I need to adjust to get it to work on Ripbot? Thanks.

I think I figured it out, I just used the custom resolution option keep the ratio the same, 720P with no bars came out to: (1280x534). If this is not how you would suggest doing it your input would be appreciated. Thanks!

Does that mean you don't intend to add support for 24bit FLAC?

Personally I think it's mad to not do it (forget my own bias, it's not like I can't do it by just doing the audio manually). My point is that FLAC is a lossless codec, why even bother having a lossless encoding option at all if its going to be fettered by downmixing it to 16bit for no reason.

I don't have the highest end equipment in the world but I can generally tell the difference between a 16bit FLAC file and a 24bit version that hasn't been downmixed.

Thanks for the program it's very useful end of the day :)
