Filesizes is weird in the new versions - not BD but DVD.

A 1 hour and 40 mins movie using CF20 is 980 MB ???

It looks like s...

BD to MKV no problem, its the same as always.

------------

Just tried same movie using 2-pass 2048 - it looks a lot better and filesize is 1.4 GB

MPC HC uses completely different filters/decoders. I would recommend MPC HC as well (make sure you grab the latest beta)

correct blu-ray structure looks like this

you will have to compare both movies with your own eyes.

Making that change works perfect for the sample provided. However, when making the same change to the original rip. RipBot is able to detect everything except for the chapters.

I did with another movie, which made a big change in bitrate.

CQ22 8.78GB 11.1 Mbps bitrate with 640Kbps AC3
CQ20 5.11GB 6.5 Mbps bitrate with variable FLAC

It looks like the larger version is better - mosquito noise might be similar, but it looks sharper. The smaller version looks a little softer.


Does anyone know of changes in the x264 codec? It would be nice to know if they did, I have already spent tons of time comparing. :(

I know that each video is different, but if it is known that the newer version of the codec provides x-y% better compression in general it would be very nice to know.

Any particular reason I don't get the chapters option when playing back the file with my WDTV??? I've demuxed with ts muxer, stripped the audio file with eac3to, and used ripbot to finalise the file if you get what I mean. :/

Hi all,

I was just wondering ;-) Does ripbot have the ability to create two audio streams?

I'd like to convert a movie from one of my blu-rays to 720p mp4 so I can play it on both my PS3 and iPad. Unless both the PS3 and iPad supports 5.1 AAC?

If not I'd have to use 5.1 AAC for the PS3 and 2.0 AAC for the iPad. The reason for me posting this question is that I don't get the iPad till next week so can't test it.

Thanks

Should I have xvid decoded by xvid or libavcodec in ffdshow video decoder config?

Could you tell me what I should have set for Other MP4,
Raw Video (it's disabled at the moment - Should it be set to YV12?)
VC1 (set to wmv9 at the moment)
H.264/AVC (set to ffmpeg-mt). Would really appreciate the help.

Hi, first off great program, nice and easy and gives awesome quality..

I have a problem though and a few questions I hope some one can help me with, sorry if its been gone over before, 400+ pages is a bit much to go through :)

Ok, I cant use the denoise filter at all, every time I select Film or Ani the preview wont work (just gives a blank screen in MPC, and the movie wont encode (click start and it says done after a couple of seconds with no error) Obviousy with some blurays being a little noisey having this filter would be nice. If I turn the filter off it all works fine.

And why cant we select 640 kbps 5.1 audio with MP4 ? can with the other options like MKV etc.. can only pick 320 kbps 5.1 for some reason. Am unsure of the quality difference but im guessing it would be a bit.

And last question, what file size should I be aiming at ? I know that depends on a lot like the movie time etc.. but with 1.5 hour movies I get around 5800 KBPS when I set the size at 4gig for converting blurays to 720p MP4.. is this over kill ? can anyone tell me what KBPS I shouldnt go under ? like would 2400 KBPS give the same quality ? Just wondering if it was overkill and I might be able to fit 2 movies on a dvd instead of just one.

Thanks for any help with the above.

Personnaly i used it. When ripbot264 dexumed to all drive all files in the temp folder, i calculate properties on the french audio track, took the file size, calculate 8150 - audio size = results ex.: 6144 MB, wrote 6125 and remuxed manually when project is done.

It's what i do. Sometimes, when DTS tracks, before- project is done, i convert it with eac3to GUI to AC3 640 and calculate before starting the project. after project finsished, i took the m2ts converted and add the other language and remuxed in a new folder.

DTS = 8125MB - other language size = conversion size and approximate to 25,50,75 mb ex. (7125mb, 6050mb etc).

They have HDConvertToX offer multiples languages, but a little more complated to use then ripbot264. I prefer ripbot264 because i've got better conversion quality and less brain pain for getting worked thoes softwares. Ripbot264 is so easy and great to work. Also, atak offer great support with many members here helping peoples.

maximal bps for CT-AAC encoder is 320000 bps. Also AAC is newer and more efficient than AC3/DTS. I doubt you will hear difference between AAC 320kbps and AC3 640 kbps.

You shouldn't aim for any size. Just select CQ@22. One pass (faster) and you get constant quality for all video collection. If you are not satisfied with quality lower value to 20 or 18 (lower = larger size and better quality)

You will see no difference. BTW, I would not rip to an SSD. SSD is not a HDD, many write accesses will slowly destroy your SSD. Those drives are for installing Windows on it an boot it up faster, not for transfering tons of GBs. You also have to disable some Windows Services like defrag, indexing... and copy your swap file to a HDD.

This GUI is great. Much faster and easier to use than AutoMKV and a few others I've tried.
I've had no real issues with it yet, once I familiarized myself with it.

One thing I have noticed, MKV to MKV conversion is not very fast, as opposed to AVI/MP4 to MKV.

Aside from that, this is the best GUI around.
I've converted about a dozen films so far, and only had trouble with one, but that was my fault.

Also, I've had better results using the 2-pass method. The CQ works well, but the 2-pass is better quality for me.

is that because the mkv is in HD vs the avi/mp4 in standard def? or the mkv is a longer video, lower AR, etc.


Also, I've had better results using the 2-pass method. The CQ works well, but the 2-pass is better quality for me.
one mode is not 'better quality' than the other. if you're getting better quality with 2 pass it's because you have a high target size possibly compared to a high (lower quality) cq value set. if you don't need to hit a target size drop your cq value until you get your desired quality. you can type 16, 14, etc numbers in if 18 is not good enough

Hi,

I used only that drive to run windows on it with my photoshop programs and filter. I convert always with another drive, same for decompression.

You dont really need to defrag on that kind of drives. For now what i could say is just awesome.

i've read over 20 forums and follow up all threads about the fiability of the drives. Many websites are more than 1 at 2 years of drives models and technology.

Personnally, it's a pleasure to try, and if a problem occured, WD warranty it for 5 years, and also they rated over 1,400,000 hours of used.

For now, i can't said that i was not happy of mu purchass, i like when my computer bring me what i click right away! Don't blink your eyes, you will miss the windows appear lol!!! :p

Also your website has verry many olds models, and also update latest news from 2009! Many drives has been better from just the last 3 months. I shop them from the last year. My friend took an intel one last year, and verry love it! No problem at all! My Western digital has better specs and rating in the market. And they also test it in their lab!

My converted file size is smaller with 2-pass, because I set it smaller, usually around 400MB.
I'm not ripping BR or HD, just standard DVD.
I have alot of rips on my hdd, in AVI, that I ripped with AutoGordianKnot.
I'm now converting them to MKV and smaller file sizes to save on hdd space.
The MKV I was converting, was one of the first AVI files I converted with RipBot264, before realizing how to set the target size.

I never said that your SSD is not faster than a HDD. This is a Ripbot forum, and FOR RIPBOT you will see no difference. On my OCZ SSD I save a few seconds for a complete rip. The link I posted was the first result on google searching for "SSD optimize". There are many websites containing the same information. I just wanted give you the tip not to rip to SSD, it is not recommended to write many files on it.

Hi Stasi!

No problem. I appreciate constructive comments. It's just i have ear many bad comments from peoples has never try SSD and i have some friens purchass it and personnally i has shopping over a year and read a lot of comments, read professionnals reviews, checks some end users reviwes on youtube, etc. Last year i was planning to get the OCZ or kingston V-Serie, but when i saw Western Digital with all their comments and latest reviews about it, and the price under 300$ for a 128GB, i've been in love with that drive. When i have them on my hand, :confused::confused: verry light! :devil:

Personnally, i can't complaint on it. I will see in the next month if the drive performance will stay fast and constant for the speed, performance and fiability.

About the conversion, i has never used my main drive for conversion, downloads... I used the drive only for OS and all softwares installed. all temps folder are hosted in another drive.

Thanks for comments

Finally I'm allowed to post in this forum.

First of all, I'd like to thank you for the great tool you've made. I'd never get into x264 encoding if not for tools like yours.

I'm posting here because I'm doing a lot of DVD->MKV (MPEG2->x264) encoding and your tool has a fundamental parameter missing from the “muxfiles” command line: the "--aspect-ratio" parameter.

Why is it fundamental (to me, at least)?
As you well know, PAL DVD's have a frame resolution of 720x576 and NTSC of 720x480; for a 4/3 aspect ratio DVD, that would give a DISPLAY aspect ratio of 768/576 (PAL) or 640/480 (NTSC); for a 16/9 DVD that would be 1024/576 or 853/480, respectively. These are the “display resolution” values; if they are not passed to the “mkvmerge” command line, e.g. “--aspect-ratio 0:1024/576”, media players will not automatically set the correct aspect ratio.

Furthermore, most DVD's have black borders, which I crop for encoding/file size optimization; so, for a 16/9 PAL DVD with margins cropped = (40, 4, 44, 4), I would pass the parameter “--aspect-ratio 0:1013/492”.

It all has to do with original pixel display aspect ratio. I’ve made a small tool for calculating the correct values; you can download it from here (with Delphi7 source code included): (http://www.4shared.com/file/tI6K6tU5/mkv_arc.html).

Some people would say: “Hey, you got to resize the video, moron”, but that’s plain wrong; video frames should *NEVER* be resized at encoding time unless you have a very good reason for it, e.g. obey some standard or to retain video quality while reducing file size. Since I’m aiming for superior video quality, I will never resize video frames at encoding time.

While my tool is helpful, it’s fastidious to manually edit the “muxfiles” command line when I’m encoding lots of DVD’s; plus, changes to it are lost it if I accidentally edit the job, so after I manually edit the command, I set the read-only attribute. It’s a pain in the *** to add 10+ jobs.

Can you please, please, please, fix this issue on your next release? I don’t think that would be too hard to implement it, I think…

1440x1080
1280x1080
720x576
720x480
704x576
704x480

Ripbot264 will encode as anamorphic only if resolution is:
1440x1080
1280x1080
720x576
720x480
704x576
704x480

Period.

I'm sorry that you misunderstood me :(

I didn't mean to lecture you on a subject that you clearly know much more about than me; Im pretty sure that you knew all that, I just wanted you to understand beyond any doubt what the heck I was talking about; and I offered the source code not because you would need it, but because you might think that the EXE could contain some kind of trojan/malware on it.

I thought that I was being constructive and I think that (at least) some users might welcome this small improvement to this great tool

Of course that you alone will decide if it should be implemented or not, but discarding it as a non-issue its a mistake, I think

I was wondering if any of you use the denoise filter and how much it affects the encoding speed?
Oh, and a suggestion, it would be great if we could specify names for video and audio tracks.

Denoise filter works on GPU (pixel shader). It shouldn't effect encoding very much.

Have you tried it without "editting" the muxing, etc ...

Works perfectly fine ... what you are doing is called ANAMORPHIC encoding and Atak confimed Ripbot264 does it AUTOMATICALLY when the above resolutions are detected ...

Here's a novel thought, try it without any "editting", cause it works flawlessly for me every time ...

Well, not for me. If I do not add the --aspect-ratio parameter, the video won't play with correct aspect ratio neither on VLAN player nor Windows Media Player Classic.

Depending on source and crop parameters, the correct aspect ratio differences may be very small and you won't really notice them without comparing screen-shots, but I've had cases where the differences are very clear and that's what called my attention to this "problem"!

I'll test an incorrect aspect ratio file on other machines to rule out a filter problem or whatever on my machine...

I've made several tests with a PAL 16/9 DVD sample source of 2010 with ~1m:22s (it has very stable margins, older DVD's will have not), and uploaded them here:

http://www.4shared.com/file/VNkafSt8/RipBot_AR_Thing.html

All encoding parameters were the same except margins (72,4,72,4), resize options & aspect ratio parameter. In my system the only MKV's that exhibit correct aspect ratio are, of course, files #1, #4 & #5.

Now take a look at file sizes and bit rates (with Media Info). It's very clear to me that best results are achieved as I say: croping black borders and adding the "--aspect-ratio 0:1013/432" parameter to muxing command line, i.e. MKV #5.

All files, including source dvd sample and AR tool with Delphi7 source code, are available here if you want to do your own tests:

http://www.4shared.com/dir/cwhn85ME/MKV_ARC.html

Right now, the only doubt in my mind is this: is it better to round the AR calc to nearest integer, i.e. "1013" or should it be rounded to nearest multiple of 4, i.e. "1012"?

I humbly submit to the author that RipBot264 should have these 2 options available:


A checkbox to include corrected aspect ratio on command line whenever cropping is used but not resize; in this case, checking it would add "--aspect-ratio 0:1013/432" or "--aspect-ratio 0:1012/432", whichever is found to be best.
The "size" drop-down box should include an option to resize taking into account not only original aspect ratio, i.e. 16/9, but also the crop margins, i.e. resize to 1012x432.


PS: unpacked MKV's file size = 46750405 byte while the 7z packed size = 28294783 byte! :eek: I didn't know that x264 encoded files could compress so much! The MPEG2 sample sure doesn't compress as much...

@toullaf

It's better to handle aspect ratio with x264's --sar switch, same is true for audio delay, it should be corrected before muxing. Depending on crop and resize options RipBot can produce files with wrong aspect ratio, this is true.

Hallo everybody.
I would like to use the program for backup my bluray: I have found it easy to use, with many useful options, but I have not found the ability to backup them without video compression, for having a real backup of my disc.
I could use other programs for this purpose, but RipBot allows me to easily include, for example, the subtitles that I want, without using other applications such SupRip, or merging them with the video permanently.
In short, the program is perfect for what I want to do, but I miss the option to copy video and audio without compression: there is the possibility that you can add this option?
Thanks

This isn't really a bug, but it's something I feel should be changed. The subtitle file is only checked if valid when it is being added after the video is encoded. I just spent 5 hours encoding a video and the subtitle file ended up having an invalid line. Of course this means the encoding was never finished and I had to do it all over again after fixing the subtitle file.

Would it be possible to have this be checked beforehand? Or maybe pause instead of cancel when found invalid.

hello - I'm having a few issues with Ripbot encoding under the iPad profile and was hoping someone might be able to help me.

The source material is a 720p .ts file recorded from ABC in ClearQAM.

With RipBot, I click [MAIN 3.0] SD.PSP.iPad under the profile dropdown. Mode is 2-pass with 3000 Kbps bitrate.

Source file encodes fine, resulting .mp4 plays back fine. When I import the .mp4 into iTunes and attempt to copy it over to the iPad, it fails. Just refuses to copy over.

I've tried this with multiple source files - same thing happens every time. I tried using the iPhone preset in MeGUI, using the same encoding settings, and it yields the same result.

any ideas?


p.s. I love RipBot, it's an amazing utility I use on a day to day basis. Donated a bit to help out :)

tried 960x540 and it failed. Trying 720x480 now.

now the _exact_ same 1024 or 960 video file, embedded in a html5 page, when I pull it up in Safari on the iPad, plays perfectly.

720x480 works! Hurray! I'm wondering if the fact that it's 59.94 is causing iTunes fits if it's anything above 720. But again though, why would it play in the browser at the resolution, but iTunes doesn't like it? Are we forced to do some iTunes 'tweaks' here to get it working at those higher resolutions?

I was just kinda messing with this. TSMuxer always makes a certificate folder when muxing to AVCHD. I burned a couple discs without it...since it only contains another folder backup and both are empty. My Bluray player didn't seem to like the discs without that folder. is it maybe necessary to get bluray players to recognize it as more of a bluray type disc??? I don't really understand it's purpose

imo making the average movie into a dvd5 should only be done in 720p. with the low bitrate it prob ends up looking better than a 1080p of the same size. so if you're doing 1080p movies consider dropping them to 720p for the above reason and because they'll process a lot faster.

Hi

Today I got trouble by opening a TS (containing VC-1) on a new installed system and I got this message after "Gathering required information"

DirectShowSource : Timeout waiting for graph to start. (Z:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)."

Finally the solution was pretty simple: Adding the "avs2yuv.exe" to the allowed programs in ffddshow decoder settings.

Remark: The ffddshow compatibilty manager appeared not on the screen but was listed in the program list (switching by ALT-TAB). Unfortunately it was not possible to select and view that window.

May be this could help somenone...

Me once again but now I have real question:

Short question:
Is there a way to tell RipBot to avoid DGAVCDecode.dll on H264/AVC sources? I know about two workarounds to enforce DirectShow (editing avs script / muxing to ts) but is there a way to exclude DGAVCDecode.dll at all?

background:
If I use Ripbot directly on the .h264-file I get rarely some pink or green glitches. I had this already on different bd's and different systems, occuring is really rare (average once per movie) but deterministic. If I use DGAVCIndex app I get "concealing ...numbers..numbers..numbers.... error" at the affected positions. No problem with these files over direct show source so far.

i've recognized that "Forced Suptitles" won't be marked as those anymore. Could you please take it back? I loved this feature!



EDIT:
Hi, sorry for that question. I've seen that the "Forced subtitles" - feature is still in.
But some BDs has an extra suptitle-file which will be forced. Would be nice if that file will be marked as "FORCED" too. So if I choose "German" as the language this file gets activated. It's a full file not only an extract of a main-file.

mux .264 into .mkv with mmg.exe. Make sure you specify correct fps!

Hi Atak,

Thank you for your great tool and your response.

I use Ripbot for the BD video conversion/compression (VC1,MPEG,AVC to MKV) only. I am doing the rest (audio, subs) manually and finally merging with MMG. My intention is not to merge the original .264 into a MKV container. My observation is when I feed the .264 directly to RipBot the resulting MKV could have rare glitches. I investigated this and the source is the decoding by DGAVC. When I merge the same .264 to a TS file and feed this to Ripbot the glitches do not occur (because the decoding is then done with DirectShow). I verified this behaviour on 2 independent systems, but they have identical HW/OS setup. May be I can test this on another system...

It would be interesting if anybody else has this problem? As workaround I can mux the .264 into TS before feeding to Ripbot but is there no switch to change the default decoding method on plain .264 files?

Regards,
Umbriel

Can someone please explain what the downmix tick box actually does. I mean not technically as I know what it is supposed to do, but it seems even if the tick is in or not, I can't actually see anything in the avs files or any files which looks like it is downmixing.

Hope that makes sense

Okay now I understand what you meant by merging the original .264 into MKV (enforce DirectShow). I wonder why I am the only guy on planet receiving "concealing errors" on a proper .264-file but from Ripbot perspective, request is solved.

Personally I would not recommend to encode plain .264-files with RipBot but it seems I am the only one receiving this errors (or may be the only one which encodes plain 264 =).

There's no way this can be done problematically. Those subtitle files that contain only forced subtitles are not marked as forced so there is no way for Atak to know.

The easiest way to tell is pick your language for subtitle file and check its size. If you need to read the sup file, go to tools/bdsup2sub and use the tool there to open your sup file.

Hi Atak ,

I wonder why this version gaves errors when I'm encoding .ts files ???
It cannot finish the encode , it stoppes at 96-97 % each time....
I've tried 4 such .ts files and all gave same situation....
Is there smth wrong with .ts files ??
The image stops at 1:25:44 and the sound continue to work up to the end. The whole file is 1:34:40.
Even when I tried second time to encode the same file , the result was almost identical..
Should I do some special settings for .ts files ????

PS : I encode .ts --> .mkv

THX !!

I haven't searched the entire thread, but from what I have searched I haven't found an answer.

Is there a way to use the "xcopy stream" method when encoding a blu-ray/m2ts? When I encode a dvd/vob, I can simply selec the xcopy stream and get the original DTS/AC3 stream which the receiver can decode. When I chose to encode a blu-ray/m2ts I have the option to transcode the audio or convert to FLAC. Is there no way to simply copy the original DTSHD/TRUEHD stream into the mkv? -or am I missing/misinterpreting an option?

Thanks,

Atak,

I've tried converting two movies from mkv to mkv (with Xcopy FLAC audio) and though files converted fine and results are excellent, the subtitles are completely out of sync. In one movie, they start out fine but by the middle of the movie, they are almost 2 seconds slow. Is there any way to fix it ? The original files do not exhibit this issue.

maybe be more thorough in checking it just to be sure
i.e. check your source and encoded file and see if they show the same framerate (I'd probably use TSMuxeR to do that)
if you don't see an issue I'm somewhat at a loss for why they'd be out of sync
demux / extract subtitles from source and encoded and see if the time codes are all the same. if they aren't you can mux the original one in.
if the time codes are the same the only other thing I can think of is the mkv has multiple timelines and the 1st / default one has a few minutes cut out, explaining the difference
that seems quite unlikely though....

I just started another conversion, but this time I selected "Assume 23.976" as the speed. This is the same frame rate that the source has. Lets see how this one goes.

Update:
Conversion went fine but same issue with subtitles. Also noticed that sound also goes out of sync in one of the encodes. I guess, I'll just stick with RAW video (with FLAC audio) for my blu-ray backups.

I just tried encoding another movie and have the same issue. In original mkv file subtitles are completely sync with the movie but on the encoded file, subtitles are couple of seconds behind. I even merged the extracted subtitles from the original file but that did not fix it either. So I'm guess, there is nothing going on with the encoded video.

Attached are the MediaInfo outputs for both files (remove .doc from the extension).

Any help would be appreciated.

I've tried MeGUI, but the result is not good as expected:

Then I came to use RipBot264 and stuck at deinterlacing method. In MeGUI, you can let the app analyse and suggest the best deinterlacing method, and also, let you choose the resizing filters. But I can't find these option in RipBot264 so I need help from you guys :thanks:

Old blu-ray was in fact AVCHD. I just changed label.

All I do is use the AVCHD option and when it completes then run that through tsMuxeR to make it a Blu-ray. Hope this helps.
This is only required if your bd-player does not like AVCHD structure. BTW. Majority of new players has no problems with AVCHD.

Use
1. TFF -> 29.97 FPS
or
2. TFF -> 59.94 FPS

Corrupted image could be caused by errors in stream. This is very common if you record something from TV station. It would also help if you could upload 50mb sample to www.mediafire.com. Use DGsplit.

Can someone please tell me if the fps on mpeg2 blu-rays is slightly slower than vc1?

Usually I get a constant 30fps, Now and again up to 45 but with mpeg2 it's a solid 25

Just wondering, thanks

Oh, also I stupidly encoded the same movie twice by mistake and the file sizes were very very slightly different. Only a few k but thought it was strange. Any thoughts?

pacaveli211
17th August 2010, 02:09
it's not going to encode exactly the same every time. being a bit different is 100% normal
all blurays (main movies) are 24fps (excluding a few 25fps things like BBC life and etc)
encoding fps depends on a lot more things than mpeg2 vs vc1 (and don't forget avc/mpeg4).
such as AR, resolution, and then some things in the movie itself. a lot of fast movements / changes will take longer. whereas a slower really dark movie should go faster

pacaveli211
17th August 2010, 03:47
hey Atak (or anyone else who might know) if I want to encode something over 25000kbps do I need to modify the profile?
I just noticed my last encode missed the target size by about 1.5GB. but I had set the bitrate to 27000 with the default 4.0 profile
it seems I should change the level to at least 4.1 and the max bitrate to 30000 or however high is necessary, is that correct?
should the buffer be changed to coincide with the max bitrate?
and lastly....having these settings as such (4.1 25000) shouldn't have any negative impact on lower bitrate encodes should they?
like if I use the same profile to encode a bd9

4.0 is limited to 25000. Anything higher requires you to switch to 4.1.

In the Movie Robots from 2005 I try to get the hole movie but cant seem to get the end with the after texts to be included! :(

I choose the appropriate mpls, in this case 00850.
mpls and choose the first angle. (tried both)

RipBot does what it should but the movie is missing the aftertexts that are aprox. 6min., what do I do ?

In the mpls i use it uses files:
00818.m2ts+00834.m2ts+00835.m2ts
, but the last part (aftertexts) is in 00821.m2ts! :(

How do I get the hole movie to be demuxed as one so I can encode the complete movie!

PLEASE HELP! :(

IS there anyway to tro to manually force together the separate files into one movie file, allready tryed all diffrent ways with TSmuxer, and nothing works, either crash at the end (usually with error msg:
"Reading buffer overflow. Possible container streams are not syncronized. Please, verify stream fps. File name: M:\BDMV\STREAM\00818.m2ts"

I have a question that does not pertain to any particular version of RipBot. I'm just curious (in basic terms) how RipBot determines the bitrates for mkv's? I just ripped a few episodes of "Generation Kill" from BD which are 1hr in length. Using CQ18 I ended up with file sizes around 4GB per episode in 720p. I just tried to do "Book of Eli" which is a 2hr movie and I end up with a file size of 2GB (also in 720p). The bitrate for Eli is only 2.5MB while Generation Kill is 5MBs. I'm just trying to understand how this works.

some movies require a higher bitrate to retain the same quality, while other movies can maintain the same quality with a much lower bitrate. lots of things will factor into this. the colors in the movie, how much action there is, etc. animated movies can be dropped A LOT and still look fine due to how the colors are.

When adding some blu ray rips to be encoded, something is eating up all my ram (4gigs) while it demuxes. Computer becomes unresponsive until it finishes and its really slow.

Then on others its fine and demuxes fine.

They are mkv's with 1 audio and 1 video track remuxed from blu rays. Non HD audio tracks regular dts and ac3

Any ideas?

Sometimes, when I try to encode FLV videos on Ripbot264, it always gives me an error saying that it can't detect the frame rate. To work around this I have to use another encoder like Megui to generate an AVS script so Ripbot can then get the framerate from there. This happens on most FLV videos I download on the internet.

Then, on most WMV files, Ripbot won't get past the 'gathering information' bit when it's analysing the file. It will just stay there.

I use RipBot264 quite often and I like it a lot! Great job!

Question. When I need to shrink the size of a Blu-ray disc (to fit on a 25GB disc) I always use RipBot to convert the Blu-ray stream using the AVCHD and the lock size options. My question is if there is a method, either using RipBot or any other software, to preserve the original VC-1 stream from the Blu-ray instead of converting it to AVCHD?

Thanks!

The existing files in that directory ( D: ) has each one a name like : 00000 , 00001 , 00002 , 00003 , etc.
Of course I've renamed the output files ( like : test 1 , test 2 , test 3 etc ) and I gave them another path ( C: ) , but the result was the same : the output files are identically with the greatest file encoded. the others are ignored.
Why ?
What should I do ???

When you choose either .m2ts RipBot automatically recognizes the main movie.
If you want to encode any other party other than the main movie will have to extract using tsMuxeR before.

you're not dropping your HD audio on these are you? such a shame if you are. just use tsMuxeR and mux the desired streams into bluray structure. I always pull the main playlist to do this (use bdinfo to find which one is the main one). this ensures you get the full movie (some discs have multiple m2ts files for the movie) and it has the original chapter list, which is nice to have. a decent amount of movies will fit without any encoding. if it's too large you'll have to re-encode the video track though

how are you separately adding them. I just tried to add a random m2ts from a bluray and ripbot just pops up the playlist and file for the main movie. this leads me to believe you need to remux them and/or move them outside of the bluray structure and then encode them. I just tried the move option and it seems to work. ripbot pops up info for that specific file rather than the whole bluray

"its auto hard mixed the subtitle on screen"
I do not know what this means
you can add hardcoded subs under the 2nd page of the picture properties (button next to encoding bitrate)

if you're getting a subtitle track that has forced subs mixed with normal subs it means the original track is that way and just has the forced flag for those necessary
if going to bluray you can just pull the original track and mux it in, it will keep the forced flags

Thanks for your input pacaveli211.

To answer your question - no I'm not encoding the audio. I just stream it out or merge it in later using tsMuxerGUI.

Your other suggestion, to use tsMuxer, is also something I'm doing, but sometimes (as you also mention) the movie itself is too large and you need to shrink it so that it fits on a 25GB Blu-ray disc, and this is where my previous questions comes in :)

the only way you can 'preserve the original stream' is if it fits. AVCHD is a format, not a codec. I think you mean keep it as vc-1 instead of encoding to h.264. I personally don't know of anything that encodes to vc-1.
not like it would do you any good anyways...it's not like you'll get better quality by keeping the same codec

Quick subtitle question, i've tried twice. I'm loading in the mt2s into Ripbot, and everything seems to load properly, and i'm selecting "English" in the subtitle drop down list from the "Blu-ray Structure" screen.

Then I do a custom ratio with manual crop, and encode to 720 without black bars. The resulting mkv looks great but the subtitles are not in the file. Am I missing a step, am I supposed to be "building them in picture" ? I always thought that meant they were hardcoded into the video stream and they are on the screen all the time, not just selectable?

Any advice would be appreciated.

pacaveli211

to hardcode subtitles you have to utilize the method I explained above: http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1428064&postcount=8394
otherwise they'll just be 'selectable' subtitles
also this page belongs to me >=)

someone a few pages back indicated some issues with raw h.264 encoding. I've noticed that when I encode raw h.264 my resulting bluray will play fine
but the navigation doesn't work properly (chapter skip, fast forward, etc). yet encoding the same file from within an mkv container seems to work fine and does not result in this issue.
bummer, that extra step to mux the video into mkv is time consuming

i want "selectable" english subtitles, which is why i wasn't sure what i was doing wrong. i thought i did everything right, but two times now they don't show up. hardcoding is not what i want, i was just asking about build in picture because i wasn't sure if that's what i needed for selectable subtitles, or if that meant hardcoding.

make sure after everything has demuxed and such that you click on the 'selectable subtitles' button (this is above the output file path, I'm encoding right now so I can't be more specific) and add any desired subtitles
I don't believe the drop down auto adds them as selectable, it just specifies that they should be demuxed, I may be wrong though

i think you're right. i just looked in the ripbot temp folder and there is a file named "9_subtitles_English_1080.sup"

i'm ganna load it in where you said, but last question. if i'm converting to 720p, does ripbot know to downconvert the subtitles too so everything fits where it should on the screen, or is that something i'd have to do with an external program?

well, this time i chose "all subtitles" in the original import into ripbot. then when it came time, i did "selectable subtitles" and went into the ripbot temp directory (which is what it defaulted opening too) and selected both english subtitle files.

now ripbot created these subtitle files (all .sups), so i don't know why there is any trouble.

yeah vlc will play sup stuff, at least in an m2ts, I haven't tried in an MKV.

depending on what you're doing you'll need to select the 'copy stream' option or do some manual muxing with tsmuxer prior or after encoding. if you need to lock size for BD9 or something you'll want to demux the core and then select that file for your audio track. if you want to keep the HD track you'll need to mux it in after the encode

@Atak_Snajpera - first off, let me just say thank you so much for writing this program - i love it and have been using it for about 2 years now. one issue i have though, (apologies if this has been mentioned but i cant go through 421 pages) is that i have been stuck using version 1.14.2 for a while now because every version released after that doesn't seem to work for me. Specifically what happens is that when I select a stream from a blu ray, it demuxes it and then once it hits 100%, it says "Gathering Informations" and just hangs there. I have literally let it sit there for over an hour on more than one occasion and nothing happens. The same thing happens in 1.14.2 when I select FLAC for audio also. I am using Win 7 x86 Ultimate. Please let me know how I can resolve this issue and if you need more info or want me to run any tests for you, just ask. Thanks so much for your help!

I assume you mean in the system tray:
technically there should only ever be one while encoding (unless you're watching a video at the same time).

if you mouse over it, it'll disappear

Hey Atak !!!

http://i34.tinypic.com/28tj0cm.jpg

These are 2 possibilities where a BD has 2 parts , both main parts.

How can I disable the function that chose the "main" file to be encoded ??? Can I ??? In my exemples both files are main ( part I and part II )
As per actual settings , Ripbot chose one file to be encoded , and for the second one I must copy to another location and to encode from there.
If I try to encode from original location , Ripbot will chose all the time the file that it considered to be MAIN....
This issue worries me because , as you can see from my exemples , the files are huge enough to be copied and occupy relatively more space so it can not be copied to another location every time..

Hi,

sorry for the question, but Im very new at this.

It would be nice to add multiple files of the same format (mov from my Panasonic TZ-5) at once.
(Perhaps dragn drop via folder)
Also it would be nice to have an option to store converted files in the same folder as source file.

So I can convert a lot of my Video files very fast to mkv an play it on my Dreambox 500HD.

Is this possible?

What's the easiest way to crop and resize while keeping Aspect Ratio intact?

For example, I'm cropping a source of 448x384 by 62 pixels from top and bottom and resizing the result to PSP 480x272, but the video comes out stretched horizontally. Same happens when I resize down. How do I avoid the stretching - do I have to do manual calculations for each video and crop, or is there a way to crop while resizing without losing AR?

Custom [x,xx:1]

BTW. correct aspect ratios thesedays are

pacaveli211

it does it automatically. when you choose an m2ts from within the BD structure it auto scans and gives you this screen:
http://i37.tinypic.com/21wz9g.png
and from there you must select the proper playlist for the movie
some blurays will have multiple cuts (theatrical vs directors) there will be a playlist that coincides for each

Not a question or request - just making an observation...

If you have multiple fullstops in the file name, these are all removed and replaced with spaces.
I assume this relates to the automation for the --title part of the muxfiles.cmd ???
Just means if you want to have movie.year.mkv for example you have to edit the muxfiles.cmd file manually before you click start (so that title has with spaces, and filename has . as entered)

However, the final result is 1080p/29.97 (output file (http://www.mediafire.com/?d1za766t9jfjisb)) even though I didn't specify interlace or decimate. As I recalled, older versions for RipBot264 didn't do this.

Sometimes Playlist don't appears to me or is not activated...
Why ???
Should be activated all the time ???
I've tried and checked 3 BDs , all of them having playlist , but none is shown in that screen as in your exemple....
When I clicked on " ADD " directed me to BDMV / STREAM / m2ts file.... Here all the time I chose the biggest one file , which is the main one....
How to do to appear that Playlist windows activated ??
There are necessary suplimentary setting to do ??
Thanks !

Recently, I tried to re-encode Sound Stage: Seal (sample) to AVCHD. It's a 1080i/29.97 source file and I would like to keep it like that. I didn't specify decimate
Source is progressive 29.97fps. It is only marked as interlaced for blu-ray compatibility.

something I have noticed after encoding quite a few of my movies..............

The normalize setting seems to randomly go between 100% and off. I just loaded in an .m2ts file and after it demuxed the streams the normalize went to off. I then shut the program down and did it again. Same movie, but this time the normalize stayed at 100%. Weird.

Can I tell which of my movies have the normalize on? is there some kind of marker within the audio stream which will tell me which of my movies has it on or off?

Thanks

maybe your bluray structure is incorrect or some of your playlist files are missing?
did you try scanning it with BDinfo?
maybe ripbot is just having trouble with that disc/bluray for some reason?

if you can't get ripbot to pull the playlist up it's only going to encode whichever m2ts you've chosen
so....you'll want to just manually join / demux / remux the movie and then encode it

Hi,

sorry for the question again, but Im very new at this.

It would be nice to add multiple files of the same format (mov from my Panasonic TZ-5) at once.
(Perhaps dragn drop via folder)
Also it would be nice to have an option to store converted files in the same folder as source file.

So I can convert a lot of my Video files very fast to mkv an play it on my Dreambox 500HD.

Is this possible?

you don't need 4.1 to burn anything to disk. I've burned 100's of discs with 4.0
you only need 4.1 if you need bitrates higher than 20000.
to get 4.1 or higher in ripbot you have to create a custom profile
TSMuxeR should be able to demux any bluray stuff, I've not tried it on 3d....but I don't see it having a problem with it
it should just have faster framerates

I am using RipBot264 to convert from M2TS file to MP4 to play on PS3. My PS3 is connected to TV using component
video, and a toslink optical cable for audio.

The MP4 file does not play any audio on PS3 if ripbot264 audio output is set to:
5.1 CT AAC-LC 256 kbps [abr]
5.1 CT AAC-LC 320 kbps [abr]

It does play if set below these two, for example, it works fine if using:
5.1 CT AAC-HE 192 kbps [abr]
no other changes except this...and audio works.

I was wondering why this is? Or perhaps I am doing something wrong. Thank you for your help.

Hi,
I just started using this program and found it to be the best by far for ripping BR to MKV when said BR has TrueHD sound instead of the normal DTS.

One question I have to ask is will it ever support DTS?
As in at the moment if I rip a BR that has DTS sound it converts it to AC3.

But I want to be able to keep DTS within the MKV without having to use a different program to extract the DTS track from the blu-ray and then mux it after RipBot has finished.

Atak_Snajpera
5th September 2010, 10:52
Ripbot264 is set to always convert DTS-MA to uncompressed .w64 instead of DTS-CORE. AC3 640kbps = DTS CORE 1536kbps in terms of quality.
So it is better to convert .w64 to AC3 640kbps. No need to waste space for bigger DTS-core.

you only need 4.1 if you need bitrates higher than 20000.
25000 not 20000

I am using RipBot264 to convert from M2TS file to MP4 to play on PS3. My PS3 is connected to TV using component
video, and a toslink optical cable for audio.
Use AVCHD format instead of mp4. Then copy .m2ts file to PS3 hard drive.

5th September 2010, 16:00
yeah, my bad. 4.1 is for 25000 and higher not 20000. must've confused it with the other bitrate wiki lists for 4.0

Mutant - probably not going to happen, for a few reasons:
Atak is an AC3 supporter
DTS stuff doesn't seem to be as open / free as AC3. i.e. you have to purchase special software for encoding it an such

benjyv - I answered your question already. And with retail media you always need some type of decryption software (such as AnyDVD)

bigggt - I don't see how the video codec could relate to an audio issue as they're both separate tracks
what type of audio does the bluray usually have / which audio track are you choosing?
is your source actually bluray?

bigggt
5th September 2010, 16:33
yep its bluray and most of the time the audio is dts ma

If i use eac3togui it works no problem

pacaveli211
5th September 2010, 17:03
hmmm, well I'm really not sure. make sure the full audio track is being demuxed to your temp folder. (should be somewhere around 3-6GB depending on bitrate and movie length)
if you haven't done so make sure everything is up to date / recent (ripbot / FFDShow / Haali)
you probably know as a work around you can demux and keep the DTS core or use eac3to to transcode it
otherwise wait and see if anyone else here might know

something I just noticed is that the file is EXACTLY 5MB
that might be indicative of....something, or did you split/cut it just for upload sample?

bigggt
5th September 2010, 18:13
Yes i split the file to make easier to upload

I just deleted all my temp files so i can't check the size but will next time

what it also does is when i play the converted file it makes the playtime over 10 hours or something like that

Like i said its no big deal as i know a workaround , i was just wondering if anyone knew the problem

8th September 2010, 00:34
I wonder if anyone can help me solve this most persistent and irritating of problems. I've been using ripbot to transcode my BluRays to MKV for my NAS for about 6 months now. Originally I got an error with VC-1 files:

DirectShowSource: couldn't open file F:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv:
The system cannot find the file specified.
(F:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)

We're all familiar with it. I eventually solved it by installing avisynth, haali and ffdshow in that specific order as prescribed here by 8ternity (thanks , btw :-)). Transcoding to MKVs was a breeze and the program worked flawlessly for about 100 blurays. However, I recently reinstalled the OS (Win 7 professional x64 ) and now I can't get it to work on VC-1s again. Same error. I've trawled this forum but no solution seems to get rid of the error. I currently have Ajax's latest installer's versions installed but no joy. (avisynth 258, Haali splitter v1.9.42.1, ffdshow rev 3516 and ripbot v1.16.2). I uninstalled everything first, restarted and then reinstalled as frequently recommended - but no luck. VC-1 is set to wmv9 - still no luck. Am now tearing out hair and swearing at computer, but that doesn't seem to help either. Windows is fully up to date and DirectX is installed and up to date.

The problem is mega frustrating as I know it can do it, but somehow I can't make it work again. Using the files I used the first time and in the same order mysteriously doesn't work either. I can see loads of people have had this problem - pacaveli211, 8ternity etc. What am I doing wrong?

Atak - it would be very helpful if you could add links to the latest proven compatible support files to your signature. That way we'd mostly all be using the same versions and singing from the same hymn sheet, so to speak. They'd only need to be updated when you bring out a new version, and maybe not even then. I know there are links from within ripbot, but these don't point to the most recent [B]compatible versions specifically - just to the latest versions. What does everyone think?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

pacaveli211

change VC-1 to libavcodec
also, as a work around, you can try demuxing / remuxing into MKV prior to encoding

CT-AAC encoder sometimes encodes at lower bitrate than specified in command line. I had to increase bitrate in order to achive more accurate bitrate.

The stream select page in RopBot just shows no chapters, an empty video box, no audio and no subtitles for 2 movie playlists. Any idea what's going wrong?

@Pacaveli211

Thank you very much for suggestions. Unfortunately, changing VC-1 to libavcodec made no difference - same error. I think RipBot now changes it automatically to wmv9 on startup. As for manually demuxing and remuxing...

a) I don't know how to do that (yet)
b) This was working 3 weeks ago on exactly the same bluray so I would love to restore the original functionality if possible.

It may come to manual demuxing and remuxing - but am not ready to admit defeat yet.

I'm sure it's a simple problem, but I'm damned if I know the solution.

Try this:
1) make sure that you have latest AnyDVD-HD version running in background
2) select .m2ts directly from disc in ripbot

This was an excellent suggestion. As it turns out I did actually have the latest version of AnyDVD-HD installed (6683) - but the problem didn't exist before I updated it...

So I rolled it back to 6680 - same problem...

So I rolled it back to 6660 - PROBLEM SOLVED.

My copy of AnyDVD-HD is fully legit, by the way, so there really is a problem with the software screwing up the video as it decrypts the Blu Ray disc, which seems to have arisen in 6680 and not been fixed in 6683.

I can't tell you how many times I've installed and reinstalled everything over the past week, thinking it was the original problem I had had coming back. Anyway, thanks a million for Jedi computer skills, and for great program. You rock.

Oh, and thanks to Ajax for his installer - it really makes it a LOT easier installing compatible versions of the necessary files for Ripbot.

Atak,
Once again thank you for this great software. I am having one problem and it only occurs when I attempt to use normalize function. I am attempting using normalize as I am playing back on a samsung galaxy 2 (Sprint Epic) and volumes have been low. So attempting normalize 200% I am getting what looks like a hang up on "initialing please wait'. I had had version 1.15, where this also hung, and recently updated to most current to see if that was the problem. it is still occurring. This is a dts track being converted down to 2.0 ct aac-lc at 128.

Is there a known common issue? something I should check that commonly causes this problem? I do not see a log file generated after abort.
Thank you for the program and any help you can offer with my problem.

I haven't searched the entire thread, but from what I have searched I haven't found an answer.

Is there a way to use the "xcopy stream" method when encoding a blu-ray/m2ts? When I encode a dvd/vob, I can simply selec the xcopy stream and get the original DTS/AC3 stream which the receiver can decode. When I chose to encode a blu-ray/m2ts I have the option to transcode the audio or convert to FLAC. Is there no way to simply copy the original DTSHD/TRUEHD stream into the mkv? -or am I missing/misinterpreting an option?

Thanks,

Are there known issues with processing? I mean it really doesn't make sense to me that m2ts files from the Band of Brothers Bluray run at different rates.

Not sure if I'm wrong to read it this way but I don't see why some files are stuck around 3.9 fps while others average above 5.5fps. If it's the right way to read it, it still seems like some m2ts files take a lot longer than others do from the same set

futurex
14th September 2010, 05:16
Is there a way to make Ripbot encode the audio and video simultaneously? On longer files it can take 10 minutes and up to encode the audio since it's only using one CPU core, before the video encoding actually starts.

Any thoughts on this? :)

Would definitely be a nice speed increase for those with more than one CPU core.

I just installed Windows 7 recently and ripbot is giving me problems. Same goes for my friends computer as well. first off, if I try to denoise a video, it says "LoadPlugin: unable to load "D:\Program Files\ripbot264\tools\avisynth plugins\fft3dgpu\fft3dgpu.dll" (S:\temp\ripbot264temp\job1\job1_preview.avs"

and if I just try to do a straight up 2 pass encode without any cropping or any other tweaks, it just stops at the end of the first pass.

Any solution?

Dynamic movies with full 16:9 frame (without black bars) will require more time to encode due to more data to be analyzed.

Ripbot264 is set to always convert DTS-MA to uncompressed .w64 instead of DTS-CORE. AC3 640kbps = DTS CORE 1536kbps in terms of quality.
So it is better to convert .w64 to AC3 640kbps. No need to waste space for bigger DTS-core.

I have Flight of th ePheonix Bluray that has a MPV (MPEGII - 1080 video) & DTS-MA for audio.

When I use Ripbot 1.16.2, I get an avisynth error unless I choose, no audio and no chapters. In the past if a Bluray had DTS-MA, I would only have OGG & AAC options, no AC3 options.

Lastly, a poster above mentioned Atak is a AC3 guy, however, I understand DTS encoding might take other SW, but TSMuxer will strip the MA from a DTS file and make it a plain DTS 5.1 file. Then Ripbot could have the "copy audio" option.

Currently, I have to take my DTS-MA Blurays and:

Use TSMuxer to demux the DTS-MA to DTS
Use Ripbot to select the m2ts stream without audio
Let Ripbot encode the Video only
Open MKVMerge and combine the video and dts stream

I've had bunch of problems with mkvtoolnix and muxing with it lately. My stand-alone player doesn't seem to like recent changes that has been done to mkvtoolnix and now I have bunch of movies waiting for remuxing...

No. Maybe try reverting to an earlier version of mkvmerge before you started having problems. Also, are you sure the problems are not related to header compression?

ripbot is an encoding tool use eac3to/tsmuxer/mkvmerge/etc for muxing stuff
download the older mkvtoolnix if the new one gives you issues....(or figure out why, it might be a simple setting)

Use TSMuxer to demux the DTS-MA to DTS
Use Ripbot to select the m2ts stream without audio
Let Ripbot encode the Video only
Open MKVMerge and combine the video and dts stream


Hi Mr. Monte,

In such cases I

Use the eac3to to extract DTS core
Ripbot to select the m2ts and DTS extracted
Ripbot to encode and combine the video and the DTS track

soneca,

Why do you use Eac3to instead of TsMuxer? (If any reason at all)
Looks almost th esame..except saves one step..thanks

Just curious, and of course Atak does not have to do it..it's his app and it's free. So I am not in any way trying to "expect" it. just wondering why AC3 audio has a copy mode, but DTS does not. TSMuxer is used by Ripbot and could do th esteps above that I do manually.

Thanks again

Curious, when you select the DTS extracted in Ripbot, you only get AC3 or AAC. How do you get Ripbot to mux the DTS track with the encode without re-encoding the audio?

Thanks

If you select the DTS track extracted, will have the option "x.x copy stream" available on RipBot.

how come the audio profiles go up to 128kbps on 2.0 can you add 192kbps

no need to waste space for higher bitrate. Don't forget that AAC is more efficient than old mp3.

No, it's just a matter of habit.
But eac3to is a more comprehensive tool to handle audio tracks.

All of a sudden i get hardsubbed video output from ripbot264 1.16.2.
After checking, sources were .mkv with one subtitle track flagged 'default: yes', sometimes also 'forced: yes'.
No subtitle things set in ripbot, only video and audio parameters.

The only thing i changed on my system (regarding video stuff)
was to update win7codecs, which did not include a dvobsub update.

I do not remember if the files i encoded prior to this hardsub-error-happening had no default setting.

My temporary solution is to:
1) remux the sourcefile to a video+audio only mkv, no subs, therefore no confusing flags or settings.
2) This 'no confusing stuff in it'-file gets encoded then.
3) The resultfile gets muxed with the source file, replacing the source's video + audio streams

i guess this happens due to the fact that ripbot makes use of the mkv via directshowsource in 'job1.avs',
instead of extracting the video stream to job1 directory. (however, i do not question this decision, it's ok)

Here are my questions:
- Has anyone else this problem?
- Does Ripbot tell haali or vobsub not to use subs while encoding? If so, why does vobsub ignore it, matter of settings?
Or is this behaviour intentional?
- Any other help or tips?

sorry for my crap english, it's late, and its my first post on a video-related forum.
