Thank you for this very useful program, as well as the time you spend here answering questions.

I have read all of the posts for 2010. I cannot find a definitive answer to a problem I am having.

I have one BD disc I cannot transfer to the hard drive.

I am using AnyDVD HD version 6.6.8.3 to read the disc. Then RipBot264 version 1.16.1 to transfer it to a file.

At the encoding stage I receive this error:

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

The error message is correct. There is no such file in that directory.

I do not have any other codecs installed. I have removed and reloaded all files ripbot264 uses. I have even reloaded the operating system.

The mkvinfo.txt file says:

“Error: The source file 'D:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\video.mkv' could not be opened successfully, or retrieving its size by seeking to the end did not work.”

The demuxlog.txt says:

I suggested this as I read elsewhere it fixed the issue for someone. you might want to change your mpeg2 codec. there's also a work-around here
http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1432806&postcount=8465

this is more likely what's causing your issue though

thanks for your quick answer.

leaving out the 'codec pack discussion':
so the solution is to uninstall / not install directvobsub, as it is the problematic component here, right?

maybe put a check of 'known problematic components' into the script which checks for haali, ffdshow etc. ?
yes i know this list could never be complete and up-to-date, and so on. just a thought.

the codec settings are within the FFDshow config options. and your issue is with an mpeg2, that's why I was sayin try changing that. the vc-1 codec shouldn't be relevant (since it's mpeg2, not vc-1)
also make sure you're choosing the right video track (sometimes blurays have secondary video tracks for commentary / behind the scenes kinda stuff), I say this because I see information in your log about standard def video...which you shouldn't have since you're encoding a bluray
if none of this is helpful like I said in that other post you can always just demux/remux yourself
or wait for Atak to answer

Thanks for the advice. This is a Blu-ray disc. I have transferred seven other Blu-ray discs without any problem using this same method so I assume it is something about just this disc. I just cannot figure out what it is so far.

@vaporizer
you don't need directvobsub because ffdshow already can do the same! Trust me all codec packs are useless. Haali Media Splitter + ffdshow is all you need for conversion/playback!

Hey guys I'm having a strange problem I hope one of you guys can help me out with..

I use DVBViewer to watch tv on my pc and all was fine but after running the newest ripbot I found that the video in DVBViewer goes blurry and the framerate appears to be lower.

If i reinstall K-Lite codec pack then the issue is fixed, but as soon as I run Ripbot again the output in DVBViewer again becomes blurry. Anyone got any idea what ripbot is changing to make this happen?

Thanks in advance!

video encoding can take few hours. 10min for audio is nothing.

I was thinking more along the lines of encoding for iPods and other portable devices, for example. With low resolution and complexity, the encodes are very fast (hundreds of frames per second), just seems to be a quite noticeable 'bottleneck' (if that's the correct term here) for people who batch encode for such devices. Most of the CPU does nothing for a good while before each encode starts, depending on length ofcourse.

I love your application regardless, was only suggesting it because I thought it would be a nice improvement for almost all users. :)

Hi,
Thank you for this program!
It came across my way while I was looking to convert mkv files with an uncompatible audio format to stream to my LG TV,or H264 files to mkv again for my TV.However,I am wondering is there is a batch function to the program that I am missing?I have 150 small files to convert and would like to do it with your program,but adding them one by one seems too painful...
Thanks.

I have a DVD - Das Boot - that defaults to German. It has an English version of the dialog. I can play it from the DVD using Windows Media Player. However, I cannot see where I select the English version in Ripbot264. Select Streams would seem to be the place, but it does not appear. What step am I missing?

Hi,

I have a problem that was discussed a couple of posts before.
First the proceeding:
I added the subtitles to the job, thereby converting from .sup to .sub. Then I assigned a language to the subtitles and started the conversion.
Result: Selectable subtitles embedded in a mkv container are selectable in VLC Player, but are actually not displayed. For other mkvs (not created with ripbot) it works - so it's no VLC issue. Is this problem a known issue with the current version of RipBot?

Thanks in advance

I am sure many of the users can live with installing real alternative to use RipBot264 to encode .rmvb source until ffdshow supports .rmvb.;)

if you really don't have those folders, your installation didn't go right. I suspect maybe you're not lookin in the install directory or something though



Changed: HD Audio is now decompressed directly to .w64 instead of intermediate .wav (eac3to 3.21 fixed bug in .w64 header)
fixed:Changed: HD Audio can now be demuxed and copied instead of always, retardedly being decompressed directly to .w64

eac3to cannot fix audio gaps while demuxing TrueHD.
24 bit DTS-MA+DTS-Core is just a waste of space. 16 bit FLAC is a better option and don't tell me that you hear difference between 24bit and 16bit.

pacaveli211
28th September 2010, 21:20
flac is not really option if you have a bluray player
it's also not if you like keeping things as unmodified / original as possible
DTS-HD MA is not a waste of space because it is lossless. however wav / PCM is a waste of space because it contains redundancies

I was unaware of eac3to not being able to fix gaps in TrueHD. I'm not sure I've run across a branched bluray with TrueHD though
it is able to fix them while demuxing / decompressing though?

Is there any benefit to using CoreAVC w/Cuda support to decode the video for Ripbot vs ffdshow's ffmpeg-mt?

I was just messing around with it last night and when using CoreAVC /Cuda the Video Engine load (as reported by GPU-Z) was around 10%-20% while ripbot was running and the x264 was at 98%-99% cpu usage and avysynth (I think that was the name anyway) was using around 1%-2%.

So by offloading the decoding to the nvidia card via Cuda does that provide any benefit to the encoding speed (assuming the decoding would be using roughly the same 10-20% of cpu instead of GPU - I'm a complete noob and have been looking these things up as I have time)? I did notice that while using ripbot and CoreAVC together Ripbot doesn't update progress and the window simply shows "not responding". I've seen a lot of posts about benchmarks on decoding speed...but not really any using it along with encoding for speed benefit.

I'm doing an encode right now just to see (Prince of Persia blu-ray) and when it's done I'm going to re-do it with the same settings only with CoreAVC.
I just figured I'd ask here to see if anyone had any thoughts if it was worth it or not or if the gains (if any) to be had were negligible.

Atak_Snajpera
29th September 2010, 10:50
flac is not really option if you have a bluray player
if you do BD50 -> BD25 conversion you can always use pcm (.w64).

DTS-HD MA is not a waste of space because it is lossless.
In comparision to FLAC it is not very efficient. (placebo 24bit + DTS-core)

it is able to fix them while demuxing / decompressing though?
eac3to can fix gaps only while decompressing to .wav/.w64

pacaveli211
29th September 2010, 17:40
if you do BD50 -> BD25 conversion you can always use pcm (.w64).
if I use PCM for a BD25 I waste GBs of space that could be used for video. and then it just doesn't sound the same. something to do with surround sound decoding the audio vs the bluray player. and once again...it's just unnecessary especially when I want to keep the original audio

In comparision to FLAC it is not very efficient. (placebo 24bit + DTS-core)
FLAC may compress better....but like I said, it doesn't matter because there are reasons you wouldn't want to use FLAC

eac3to can fix gaps only while decompressing to .wav/.w64
I assume we're still talkin about only TrueHD (i.e. it can fix gaps with DTS tracks)
I do have a question about that though....does eac3to automatically fix gaps? or does it require anything extra in the command to do so
in eac3to and more gui there's a "If Gaps File Found, Rerun Command Line For Affected Files" option
I don't see anything extra added to the command line and the log reads the same had I not checked it.
and this is eac3to fixing the overlaps right:[a04] Starting 2nd pass...

Hello Atak,

I've experience some movies burned with BDMV + CERTIFICATE folder burned after conversion of PS3 reading only has a file (seen only folders) need to navigate and select the m2ts file has a file.

Some LG Bluray readers of my mother can't read the disc! I tested to change medias type, brand, burner, it does the same.

Now i test to repack again with tsmuser to AVCHD format to reburn and see if the problem is resolved.

Did you get feedback of this issue from other members?

EDIT: when project is done, less folder having in the BDMV subfolder. Here an example˝:

eac3to can't fix gaps in trueHD. I'm not sure about DTS-MA though.

[a04] Realizing DTS gaps...

so how about giving a choice somewhere. whether to keep the original audio track or to demux to wav and then do flac or whatever else???
cuz I know I'm not the only one making bd25s nor the only one who likes too keep DTS-HD MA. and this way the person can choose what they'd prefer to do with the audio.

Atak_Snajpera
30th September 2010, 19:41
We all know that x264 encoder is extremly efficient so 20-25Mbps is more that enough for 1920x1080. BD25 has also enough space for uncompressed audio.
Quick example:
20Mbps (bitrate for video) / 8 = 2.5 MB/s
120 min movie = 7200 s

2.5MB/s * 7200 = 18000 MB

23830 MB (real BD25 size) - 18000 MB (video size) = 5830 MB (to be used by audio stream)

48000(Hz)*8(channels)*2(16bit)=750KB/s

750KB/s*7200s=5400000KB=5273 MB

18000MB + 5273 MB = 23273 MB

As you can see despite 8 channel audio uses only ~5GB on disc. Also don't forget that DTS-MA is not really supported in strict AVCHD structure.

pacaveli211
30th September 2010, 20:04
I don't mux to AVCHD for BD25's, I mux to bluray structure.
and once again....there are more reasons than just space to keep tracks like DTS-HDMA. So why does it even matter if you can fit uncompressed audio?
if you can fit the original DTS-HDMA track and use ~2GB less space it'd be stupid to waste that 2GB of space with PCM audio....
you have the same audio....and use less space, why is there any argument there?
with DTS-HDMA some movies still have to be dropped quite low to fit BD25. robin hood, for example, I had to drop under 16000. imagine if I'd wasted even more space using PCM

I don't understand why you always insist on arguing simply because you don't like something or you wouldn't personally want to use it. I know this is your tool and all that...but if it's something people would
use and can benefit from...why not add it?

The algorithm used by Dolby has always been more efficient ie same quality using less space.
The difference between HD and conventional audio(1536/640kbps) is minimal, just a blinded test.

Recently I bought the Spider Man trilogy.
While with Spider Man I & 3 everything went fine, I got an avisynth error with Spider Man 2 and particularly I followed the next steps:

1) With anydvd HD and tsmuxer I created a blue ray disk on the hard drive.
By looking inside the STREAM folder of the blue ray disk there are multiple smaller files and not just a big one to select (inside the initial blue ray disk).

we're not discussing DTS vs AC3. And back when TV's and monitors were CRT/standard def you couldn't really tell the difference between xvid rips and dvd....doesn't mean there's not a difference.
I'm aware AC3 is more efficient.....I also know DTS always seems to sound better. lastly burning a bluray and dropping HD sound would be stupid.

I installed AnyDVDHD v.6660, it didn't make any difference.
I uninstall everything (avisynth,ffdshow,haali media splitter).
I rebooted and installed everything again, also made no difference both with AnyDVDHD v.6660 and v.6710.
I changed VC-1 codec from wmv9 to libavodec, still the problem existed.
After searching around in this thread I found a previous post by Atak saying that simpler solutions are often the best and particularly by selecting ANY .m2ts from Blu-Ray disc in ripbot264.
That was the solution.:)
Using AnyDVDHD v.6710 I selected an m2ts file (anyone) directly from the blue ray disk and the selected streams were demuxed successfully.
Now I'm happy encoding. :thanks: for the help.

Thanks, but not what I meant. If I install the 64 bit version of ffdshow (and not the 32 bit), RipBot won't detect ffdshow as installed. It won't run.

In order to run RipBot, I have to install the 32 bit version of ffdshow.

Ok, I did not understand.

But if I'm not mistaken, for while the RipBot only supports 32-bit version of ffdshow.

please try the sample video i got problem with
http://www.mediafire.com/?4z2as0yjvnjoage

Try a previous version of x264, see if the artifacts are still there.
I will check out your sample when I get home.:)

Update: The artifacts appears even when I open the original source file when I open it in MPC-HC, it seems that the problem lies with how ffdshowmt decode the file.
The earlier version of RipBot works fine as it index the file with DGAVCIndex before encoding.
Things changed since v1.13.0.

v1.13.0
Added: support for x264 64bit (up to 10% faster encoding)
Added: if COPY STREAM is not selected assumeFPS will also adjust audio speed (easy 25 -> 23.976 conversion)
Added: custom resize profile with locked aspect ratio
Added: always first VST_01_x.vob will be indexed instead of VIDEO_TS.VOB
Added: language combobox for audio stream
Added: support for .sup subtitles (Warning!!! Original 1080p .sup WILL NOT be visible in 720p!!!)
Added: support for .ass .ssa subtitles in mkv container
Added: chapter extraction from .mp4
Added: UAC manifest (from now on you don't have to disable UAC)
Added: FFDshow DV decoder will be automatically enabled if necessary
Added: BD-25 size
Changed: Audio delay for convenient moved to Properties
Changed: .ts and .m2t files will be decoded via DirectShowSource instead of DGIndex or DGAVCdec (Reason: Faster decoding with FFDshow MT)
Changed: Audio from .ts and .m2t files will be demuxed in one pass
Changed: A/V same length combobox removed. CUT function is now always on (Audio and Video will always have the same lenght)
Changed: 'Tahoma' font to 'Consolas' (Installed by default in Windows Vista and 7)
Fixed: Bug which always resets VC-1 decoder to libavcodec. Default decoder is now wmv9 (Reason: Supports interlaced material)
Fixed: error 'Couldn't import DownMix2Stereo.avs'
Fixed: jobs.ini will be created immediately after creating new job
Update: x264 r1092M , eac3to v3.06 , Oggenc 2.85 aoTuVb5.61 , MediaInfo v0.7.10

I am have tried to make a .mkv from a BD, Batman The Dark Knight. It contains a Dolby TrueHD track. I tried to make a .mkv that can play on my Xtreamer.

In the latest Ripbot246 version after demuxing the videostream it only shows up 5.1 PCM that can be converted to AC3 or AAC, but I cannot choose direct stream copy. Why? Am I doing something wrong? Is there limitations to the mkv container that it cannot contain Dolby TrueHD.

Otherwise it works fine, and I really like this software Atak has made!

Error to Report:

Subtitles get a strange import; when it try to add a subtitle, it add an "_" caracter at the end of the name. If i rename it, it add another "_" at the end and get crashed ripbot264 and can't get out of the subtitles import box. I need to force close. but the error is in the import command.

***edit***IF it's demuxed with 1.16.3; 1.16.2 can't add it too... i test it with 1.16.2 right now and it works if it was demuxed by version 1.16.2. It happen sometimes in the old version, i just need to delete the job and re-create and it's corrected. But the version 1.16.3, it happen strongly!

I tried to read this thread but don't follow:

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=152030

The Batman Dark Knight contains a Dolby TrueHD that is either demuxed as a .flac file or .w64, depending on wheter you cecked the Flac option or not . If not checked I get the option to use AC3 5.1 640 kbit/s. So ripbot264 uncompress the TrueHd track to a multichannel PCM (.w64?) which is a lossless lossless step, and then encoded to lossy 5.1 AC3. Correct?

What is that talk about AC3 core and DTS core?
Can someone explain?

Thanks,

pacaveli211
6th October 2010, 17:57
the only way to have HD audio with ribpot is to use PCM or FLAC
if you want to grab just the core track (this is a lossy track contained within the HD track for compatibility with older equipment) you can demux with tsMuxeR and check the 'downconvert' option
both DTS-HD and TrueHD tracks have this. DTS-HD usually has a 1536kbps DTS and TrueHD has a 640kbps AC3
if you want to keep the original TrueHD track you will need to demux / remux it into your competed file outside of ripbot

Not absolutely sure of what empty folders you are referring to, if you are referring to the jobs folder, uncheck keep jobs queue in RipBot.

Also, there might be a problem/bug with RipBot since it's stuck at gathering information while decoding a video with MP42 video codec.
It couldn't be ffdshow since it can decode MP42 perfectly fine.

I only managed to encode your file by manually running DGAVCIndex from RipBot's tool folder.
Using DGAVCIndex, I opened up your .ts file, saved and demux the file.
Then, I open the demuxed .264 file with RipBot and select the demuxed audio as well.
After setting the audio delay to 14ms, I got a decent synchronized output.

Until today with a specific video, the x264 application crashes at about 60% through the 2nd pass.

The video is an HDTV recording I made at a high bitrate so I could trim out adverts and compress it (with Ripbot) later.

Oh, it was very technical link and very much text...

If I understand it correctly, it is a debate whether it is possible to hear any difference betwen 24 bits and 16 bits?

When I add a job (1080p MKV) while RipBot is encoding, it takes a long time for demuxing. When I set "low priority" on, demuxing is much faster. RipBot should automatically activate "low priority" when adding a job, and change to normal priority when the "add job" window is closed. Just an idea.

Well, you already have the option of doing that (change to low priority just before adding the new job, back to normal when the job is added), and without too much trouble... and some people might prefer not to sacrifice their encoding time/performance for the sake of adding jobs faster... I think it's perfectly fine as it is. I would like an option to have jobs be deleted automatically as they're finished, but I won't insist on it, since the funcionality is there, now, just not automatic. =)

@Atak,

I know you are against using TrueHD/DTS-HD, and go the route of flac, however i thought i would beg again! :)

Please would you reconsider, and add support for retaining TrueHD/DTS-HD audio? I'm sure there are plenty of users out there who have to go the long route of encoding video with RipBot, demuxing TrueHD/DTS-HD, remuxing the lot to MKV.

Of course, there are other video encoding tools out there that can do this, however as a compliment to you, i'm only interested in using RipBot!

You could save people a stack of time! Surely this is a legit feature request and would be well served?

Many thanks

I think I've got it sorted now, thanks :). For some reason, the encoding will fail when outputting the file to an SSD. I changed the output directory to one on a regular HDD and it worked fine.

Hi Atak,

The RipBot is crashing when I try to normalize the audio using the base 3.0 for iPod.
Showing "Please wait... Initializing" forever.
Without normalization have no problems.

Edit
Working perfectly.
How is the first time I had to normalize the audio, I did not know who took the time(Please wait... Initializing) to scan the file.

I spoke too soon! It's still happening, but it seems to be fine when running it over remote desktop from my laptop. I guess there's something running in the background that Ripbot doesn't like. Oh well, at least it's working :).
Knowing my luck, it'll probably start failing again using this method too.

Just out of curiosity... Why would I prefer 2-Pass mode over CQ, other than to limit file size? (No criticism meant, at all. Just curious. I always use CQ mode by default, but just now had to use 2-Pass to limit file size, and was wondering what other advantages it might have.)

takmaze

From what I understand, it takes longer but gives a better quality:compression ratio.

Yep, 2-Pass to predict size.

pacaveli211
13th October 2010, 16:50
2pass is just to encode to a certain size / bitrate
CQ is to encode to a certain quality
neither of them are 'better' in terms of output quality. it's all relative to the settings you use along with them.

@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!

a couple of people tried to help me solve this problem but nothing has worked. does anyone else have any ideas? this is killing me! i would really like to be using the latest version.

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Haali and Avisynth? I would uninstall all of that, including ffdshow, and reinstall it all to see if you can fix your problem.

I don't recall the order of installation ever affecting me. I honestly can't remember in what order I installed Avisynth and Haali.

Hi Atak ! I really like the new version (adding jobs while encoding :)) !

I was wondering if it would be possible in a future release to use hardware-accelerated decoding ? For those who have an ATI/nVidia video card. Encoding will be faster because the CPU will only be used to encode. That sounds awesome, isn't it ?

Is it possible to make it happen :D ?.

Thanks again for your great software,

you checked to make sure it wasn't an issue with your current anydvd version?
tried changing (VC-1) codecs with ffdshow?
full uninstall of FFDshow / reboot / reinstall?
someone had a list of install order a few pages back. might want to find that. it seemed to help a few people when installing things in a specific order

i dont think it could have to do with anydvd because i have the most current version and i rip blu rays to my hard drive before using ripbot.

i havent tried changing vc-1 codecs but it happens with blu rays that arent vc-1 too and i dont have any trouble playing vc-1 files so i dont think that is it either.

i tried uninstalling ffdshow and i tried installing everything in the order specified but that didnt work either :confused:

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling Haali and Avisynth? I would uninstall all of that, including ffdshow, and reinstall it all to see if you can fix your problem.

I don't recall the order of installation ever affecting me. I honestly can't remember in what order I installed Avisynth and Haali.

yes i tried that, with no luck

Tell us about your system configuration , pls !!!

There could be the problem...RipBot264 v1.16.3 does not require a specific installing order.
You can try to DELETE all adjacent softs that compete in operation of this program ,and re-install latest versions of them...

what do you want to know about my system config? i am running win 7 ultimate x86. let me know what other info you need.

But as I know , here is not a language meeting or a forum for linguistic mistakes , and nobody asked you to intervene and make grammatical corrections .
If you know to help that user ,OK , if no , pls , stand back and never put in question elsewhere.
I've noticed that you've become a Knowing, as Atak's lawyer, which is an awkward position, especially when you do not know anything and try to give advice, confusing people.

pacaveli211 was correct, it was difficult to understand what you were implying and this has nothing to do with a "language forum" (as you so put it), just common sense. When you don't describe something to someone properly and use the proper terms, then there is a chance that they will either still not understand you or mess something up because you described it wrong. I've been reading these posts for quite sometime now and honestly, Benjyv, you have been rude, degrading, and unappreciative of the help people have tried to give you. It's OK if you go ahead and "ignore" this post but for someone who is not really technically inclined in this field, I think that you are the last one who should try to help someone, especially with the bad attitude and condescending tone that you bring to the board.

Oh, and in our country (as in most countries including most likely your own), you don't have to be a specialist to use well-known or specialized terms. People in this country are allowed to use any terms they like to.

With that said, Atak, thank you very much for this program. I've been enjoying it for quite sometime now and it works wonderfully. And also thank you to all of the other regular posters who really try to assist people without trying to make them feel stupid or ridiculed.

and I have not checked a/v sync in preview, the computer that renders videos doesn't have speakers, is just a "render" box.

a/v sync is ok when original video is played in WMP or PowerDVD.

Hey Atak, thanks for your updates.

But I have to disagree with you, PSP "listens" in fact to --SAR values. When I encode straight from avisynth to x264, i give them and no problems, except for the fact that the PSP only cares about those 2 standard values:

-720x480 (16/9)= --SAR 40:33
-720x480 (4/3)= --SAR 10:11

Any other proportion won't work.

In 640x480 also there are a couple of values that work, being 640x480 (16/9)= --SAR 4:3 and for aspect 4/3 you don't need to give it, as it's 1:1

Funny, I was wondering to ask you to implement the possibility of modify the command line, just to add those sar values on my own.

Thanks.

PS: Those AR values also work with mp4box, using --par in the commandline. That's what I used to do with the resulting ripbot files.

True. Nevertheless according to my math --sar 1185:1000 is more accurate than --sar 40:33.
1.185 * 720 = 853
853 / 480 = 1.777 (~16:9)

0.889 * 720 = 640
640 / 480 = 1.333 (4:3)

Right, and sometimes you can even feel it, that the widescreen effect it's a little awkward or not precise, but that's what sony left us to deal with (as many other things)

I've managed to tweak the PSP profile with the SAR value and now it's better than never, not having to touch the resulting file, unless I need a second audio language.

Thanks for your work.

By the way, I have an issue. From certain time to now, I cannot get decent preview, it's not just a problem of sync, but also jerky playback. I've tried uninstalling ffdshow, avisynth and haali, rebooting and reinstalling new version, but nothing works. DirectX update to the last, and I can't think of anything else. It started to happen, I think, with ffdshow 3300 or higher, but Im not sure.

Any thoughts?

I fired up Ripbot, pointed it to a Bluray folder on one of my HDs, Ripbot recognizes the main stream, Audio, and Subtitles...but once I click OK I get a pop up that I'm missing MSCVP71.DLL. I get this pop up three times, then the demuxing begins. I noticed that the temp files "job1" got stored on D:\, where as the RipBot program is located in C:\. demuxing finishes and I can choose the custom output, which I select MP4. Click done and click start, I get initializing then all jobs finished within about 2 seconds without any output file produced.

I apologize for my delay in posting this but I wanted to bring this to your attention and see if it is an issue. A couple of months ago, I had two videos that I was recoding from Blu-ray to MKV. I had the option to choose either the 3-channel audio or a single channel audio version of the movie. When I chose the 3-channel audio version, Ripbot would finish completely (after about 5 or 6 hours work) and not report any error messages, however there would be no output file. If I chose the single channel audio and kept every other option the same, the recoding would work, no problem. This was true of both movies that I tried that had foreign language 3-channel audio. Here are the files that pertain to both options (from one of the movies) for you to examine, screenshots and logs included...

--slices 4 and --min-keyint 1 --keyint 24.
--sclices 4 divides frame by 4. Each splice is decoded independently by decoder. (Multithreading decoding)
--keyint 24 forces key frame every second. Short gop reduces compression and may cause 'frame pulsing' issue with low bitrate.

As you can see strict blu-ray profile will give worse quality than regular 4.0. Your choice :)

I thought I'd try to bump this once since I didn't get any replies. Are chapter markers just not possible in MP4s with RipBot?

Yes, it seems to put chapter markers in MP4s for playback in VLC where you can skip to the next chapter.

What I was looking for though is the chapter list pop-up when playing back on Apple devices like and iPad or in iTunes. The typical "Digital Copy" mp4/m4v you get with a BD or DVD has this and I wanted to see if I could get it with RipBot. Handbrake does it but it doesn't do BDs of course.

pacaveli211
26th October 2010, 00:18
thanks for the reply atak, I see what you mean that they'd make it worse.
seems like it'd be better to let the key frames be made whenever necessary....not every second
and the slice thing just seems unnecessary
so I guess I'll just leave my 4.1 profile as is! thnx again for the info

Hi,

I've created my own profile, which includes the parameters --keyint 24 --min-keyint 1. However, after encoding I checked the job log and it says --min-keyint 24 --keyint 240 as well as my parameters. When encoding what is it using? Example command from log:

why......Atak and I both just discussed this saying a profile/encode is better off without these
maybe if you used a bluray player you'd want these...but your use of crf indicates that's not the case

does your profile still have the correct switches?
I see the correct switches in your log there, as well as the alternate ones. the 24/240 I think is x264's default

Hi,

The reason is simple - at the moment I am playing back through my PC, but in the future I may want to remux to blu ray structure and burn to disc to play in a stand-alone player. Therefore blu ray compatibility is essential for me. Normally I would encode 2-pass, but as per my original post, this is an example log to demonstrate my question (basically I'm testing the profile at the moment).

The question is, is 24/240 being used, or are my settings over-riding them? How can I tell?

I'm having a problem with some subtitles. The .idx file it's creating has negative timings, and apparently matroksa doesn't handle those properly, so the subtitles aren't showing. I tried fixing them with SubResync, but short of manually editing each single timing, I can't figure out how to do it. Halp?

Hi,

The reason is simple - at the moment I am playing back through my PC, but in the future I may want to remux to blu ray structure and burn to disc to play in a stand-alone player. Therefore blu ray compatibility is essential for me. Normally I would encode 2-pass, but as per my original post, this is an example log to demonstrate my question (basically I'm testing the profile at the moment).

The question is, is 24/240 being used, or are my settings over-riding them? How can I tell?
oh, good idea. I'm not sure on your keyframe issue. All of my encodes have been done without having them though, and they still play.
You do also know that video needs to be 1920x1080 or 1280x720 (there are a couple others but those are the main 2) for bluray compliance, right?

I've done negative timings with audio before but never tried it with subtitles, mkvmerge might consider it a 'video track'. I can tell you than you can easily edit timecodes using a subtitle tool such as subtitle workshop. or specifically for your case it even has a 'delay' setting where you can put in negative delay

Hi,

I have a Blu-ray structure on my hdd. I want to convert it to mkv. I have converted another source before and it was successful. But i have a problem now.
I've opened the source with ripbot. The program analyzed the source and gave me a panel with some choice. There is about 10 audio track in the list. I only want the english DTS. I chosed it then clicked OK. After that ripbot started to demux. After demux i got the main window of ripbot. I set the video size and the method...etc. But i could not choose the "direct steam copy" in the audio section if I clicked on the mkv format. Only if i choose the avchd format. In mkv format ripbot wants to convert the audio to ac3 os something else. I searched the temporary files and I found that the demuxed video is in mkv format already but the demuxed DTS has a .w36 (im not sure but someting like this) extension.

I have tried another way. In that panel where i choosed the dts audio there was an FLAC switch. I have tried that too. I switched it on and restart the entire process. It started to demux but insted of 20 minutes it ran all night but there was no result. I just saw the "Gathering information..." string.

Anyone can help?

thx

Hi pacaveli211 - yes of course, I'm not cropping the video at all.

If 24/240 is default to x264, or even to either --preset medium or --level 4.1, I wouldn't have expected to see it in the log as an additional parameter? I thought I'd only see it in the log if I've specifically typed these parameters in my command line - which I obviously did with 1/24 to over-ride the default. I have a feeling that RipBot is entering 24/240 in my command line. Atak, could you confirm if this is the case?

EDIT: I asked this question over at Doom10 and someone replied that if there are duplicate options in the command line, x264 will use the ones given last.

Does anyone know why the UI on my RipBot264 is messed up as in picture attached here. There is no text in the list boxes and see that corruption near the CQ quality area? Thanks.


For the record, I had to take the \Tools\Fonts\consola.ttf and install it in the C:\windows\fonts folder and all is back to normal. Tx.

ripbot doesn't support copying HD audio tracks. if you want the HD track, or just the core even, you'll need to do some work outside of ripbot
for the full HD track, encode the video only and then mux it in after the encode
if you just want the core, use tsMuxeR or eac3to to extract the core and then choose that as your audio track with ripbot
it will allow you to 'copy stream' with it

i have read a lot of things about it an you're right.
But I have another problem now. I tried to put my files to TSMuxer but I have 120 files in the stream directory. TS muxer dont allow multiple drag and drop. How can I easily demux the DTS audio from the entire movie?

most blurays have the main movie in a single m2ts file (it's going to be the 25GB+ one, switch your folder view to details)
if you're still unsure or if you have a bluray which has seamless branching (which will usually have multiple m2ts for the main movie)
you can scan it with BDinfo and find which playlist is for the main movie and then drop that into tsmuxer
also...when demuxing audio from a bluray with seamless branching you may want to use eac3to in case of audio overlaps

can you add a way to mux a video already encoded to console specification and just encode the audio if its 5.1 audio format

pacaveli211
1st November 2010, 05:10
ripbot does the audio encoding first. so you could just add the job....run it till the audio finishes and then cancel it (grab the audio track before you cancel or it'll get deleted)
the audio track will be in your temp folder
this will leave you needing to do the mux yourself
or....you could just encode the audio with eac3to - this is probably what ripbot uses to encode the audio anyways

Because I always get video and audio that is out of sync when converting a Naruto Episode from Taka for my PSP.

pacaveli211
1st November 2010, 21:13
ripbot doesn't change framerate unless you have an unusual/non-standard framerate, like 18fps or something weird. or....unless you tell it to, obviously.
what is the framerate of your video?

Raily
2nd November 2010, 17:14
MediaInfo reports it as a 24fps video but Ripbot recognizes it as 25fps.
Changing it to 24 sets the audio tabs duration to 0:00.
Right duration should be 23min 24s 672ms.

Encoding with 25fps gives no audio.

Oh sorry said it wrong. Encoding with 25fps results in A/V out of sync
Encoding with 24 creates a video with no audio.
Hmm remuxing would take me too long. Using Handbrake for now.

Don't know what the problem is hope another one can have a look at it.

are pipebuf and avs2yuv even needed anymore, i though x264 had native avs support integrated a while back. if they are required is there anyway to use the ffdshow dxva plugin to decode the image before encoding because both pipebuf and avs2yuv use up one of my cores just by themselves.

Howdy, I have been having issues with ripbot, at first I thought It was my rip but here's what's happening.

using dvdfab (latest) I rip the main movie to the hdd. I add the stream to rip bot etc... when i look at the preview about 45 mins into any movie the audio goes out (by at least 5 sec). I can play the ripped streams on the pc fine and there is no audio lag, I can't put in a delay etc because the first part of the movie is in sysc. This has happened to about three movies so far, eg Shrlock Holmes, Iron man 2, Gamer,

any help is appreciated

I'm having a problem using RipBot264 to rip some BBC-sourced blurays; specifically those that are:

VC1-interlaced
Frame rate 29.97

Normally I use handbrake, but it depends on ffmpeg to read its input files, and that can't deal with *interlaced* VC1. Hence RipBot.

Now, The BBC create their programming for transmission in the UK at 25fps interlaced (aka 1080i@50), but *some* of the blurays they produce for their programmes are modified to play at 29.97fps. Those that *aren't* and are instead left at 25fps, eg: Life, Wonders of the Solar System, rip beautifully and perfectly in RipBot264 (though I might wish for a HandBrake-like "decomb" filter; I don't want to use a full unconditional deinterlace and halve my vertical resolution). But those that are are giving me problems:

An important example (for me!) is the Doctor Who season 4 specials. The artifact I'm getting is that on smooth-motion shots there's an obvious and almost literally sickening regular judder in the motion.

Here's an example: http://madison.strangenoises.org/~rachel/Doctor%20Who/

Here are several files. They're all of the first two minutes of The End of Time Part 1.This is useful because it demonstrates the problem almost right from the start, in the course of the first two shots. This does also occur on a number of other discs; just this one is the most convenient demonstrator.

The largest file, "end of time 2 mins.mkv" is the raw rip out of MakeMKV, truncated to two minutes using MKVMerge. The others are generated from that first using RipBot264, named according to what settings I tried (from a base of using the BluRay preset). None of them helped. :-) The ones where I force the frame-rate to 29.97 are because upon load RipBot264 sometimes seemed confused about what the source frame rate was in the original (non-truncated) makemkv rip. Play any of them. What's noticeable in the first two shots, and unbearable in the second, in the pan-and-track down onto a street, past a brass band, is a regular judder or 'dragging' motion.

Watching the first shot frame-by-frame, (of the Earth against a starfield), on some frames the stars are doubled-up, I believe because two interlaced or telecined frames have been rendered into a single progressive frame.

Now, the actual bluray in an actual bluray player connected to an actual HD TV, plays fine, but I want a playable version in my vault. I'm only running Windows in a VM (by choice I'm a Linux/Mac user) so I can't really test playback of the source file in Windows well enough to be sure, but it looks like in Window Media Player the source shows the same problem as the transcodes I can see properly on other viewers.

My theory so far is that what's happened to these disks is this: The BBC made the programmes, as they make all their programming for broadcast here in the UK, in interlaced 25fps; but in mastering the Blurays, presumably for some international marketing purpose, they're set to play back at 29.97fps. And I think this is accomplished using telecine.

Which on its own would mean, use detelecine, or inverse telecine (correct me if I'm wrong, they're the same thing? HandBrake offers the former, RipBot264 the latter). But in one of the example outputs included above I tried inverse telecine and it seemed not to help.

So I think it wants to be decimated too, to return it to its original 25fps-interlaced state. But the RipBot264 GUI only offers "Do not decimate" or "Restore -> 23.976fps". A note I found somewhere from the author seemed to indicate he thought this was the only situation where it would be needed; ie: 24fps movies telecined for NTSC.

I think, for these disks, we need a "Restore -> 25fps" option.

I'm not sure that really is the cause of the problem, and that this would be the solution, but it's the best I can think of and I welcome input. Best of all a "no, do this" hint. :-)

I also don't know if this would alter the speed of the video (thus putting it out of sync with the sound) or whether the frame lengths would be automagically stretched so it plays at the same speed. But if it fixes the video but leaves it at a different speed to the sound, that at least moves the problem to something that'll probably be easier to fix. :-)

An alternative would be for RipBot264 to be able to output h.264 *interlaced*; ie: preserving the interlaced/telecined fields of the original. In that case I could try running through RipBot264 at a ludicrously high quality setting in order to run the result through HandBrake to sort out the detelecine its way. Yes, I know double-transcoding would be horribly sub-optimal. :-) Another option would be to just use the resulting interlaced transcode as my final viewing file, which might work.

(I've no idea if HandBrake *would* be able to sort this out - I haven't seen the BBC pull this framerate change on any of their blurays that aren't vc1-interlaced and thus could handbrake directly... or if I have, I haven't noticed because it Just Worked. I suspect the former. :-))

I was going to try just setting --interlaced=1 or --tff in the x264 options string in RipBot264, but it seems the option string field in which to enter that has disappeared in the most recent version. :-)

Does anyone know why 1st Pass during 2-Pass target size seems to only use between 25-40% of processing resources? I rip all my movies to blu-ray (.m2ts) in 2-Pass mode every time. When converting to 1080p, I get about 45fps on 1st pass. On 720p, it's usually around 60fps. On 2nd pass, I get around 25fps on 720p and around 18-19fps on 1080p.

This is on an i7 920 OC'ed to 4.0GHz. Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

recorded .ts could be damaged. Probably decoder during decoding droped some frames. Try this. change extension to .m2ts.(This will force remuxing to .mkv by eac3to)

about the a/v sync, i took the .ts file remuxed it to m2ts and did the encode again, file had no a/v sync issue.

for some reason .ts did have sync issue, but m2ts (remuxed from .ts) did not.

when the .ts was loaded in the preview, a/v sync was fine.

Hi, Atak_Snajpera.
I'm trying to encode an iPad-compatible MP4 using the available preset. The video is 1024x576 @ 24fps.
The encoder seems to complete the 1st pass but never get to 2nd. It remains stuck with the Abort button forever.

return vid.LanczosResize(1024,576).ConvertToYV12()

First pass is really a scan to get a feel for the file. 2nd scan does the full encoding and will use 100% of your CPU no matter how good your computer is.

Question if I may? I don't understand how I should be setting the KBPS on the encoding settings. I think the higher it is, the bigger the files. The guide I found had it set at 6930, which is what I used, but I'm not sure that is optimal? Can anyone explain this? Thanks for any help.

LigH
10th November 2010, 13:01
That's the hardest question for all beginners, zazon.

As many movies are out there, as many different bitrates they "need" to be encoded with a satisfying quality. This is squared by the different people watching movies and having different preferences how much quality they need. And even cubed by the many options you can use to set up the encoding efforts and time consumption, the wanted dimensions (width*height), filtering...

To limit the complexity, first divide your problem into two: Do you really need to get the result down to a file size which fits on a specific media?

If yes, calculate the required bitrate by the capacity of the media, divided by the playing time, and subtract some amount required for anything that is not the video of the movie (audio streams, subtitles, multiplexing overhead, maybe even menus - depending on the target format). There are "bitrate calculators" (maybe included in the convertor, maybe additional ones) to help you here.

If no (e.g. you will store the result on a harddisk anyway) ... don't care about bitrates at all. Only care about the available quality metrics of the encoder. x264 has a kind of "constant quality" mode, more exactly a "constant rate factor" (CRF) ... test for yourself which value in a range around 18 and 22 is satisfying for your quality preferences. Other formats may not have such a feature, here it may be harder to find "a very similar quality for many different movies".

Yes, the resulting file will most likely sit on my media server. Size is not of paramount importance, but I don't want to make them twice as big as they should be. Does this mean I should use the CQ instead of the two pass? I am assuming the CQ uses whatever bit rate it needs and the file may be bigger or smaller.

Another question if I may? I have a Blu-ray of the Godfather. Parts of the film are in a foreign language. I used RipBot to embed the subtitles, but when I played in in VLC, there was no way to turn them on or off. Is there some way to set that up? Thanks for any help.

I also tried the CQ setting for the bit rate. Personally I think it looked worse than using a variable bit rate set at 6930, which I what I was doing. I don't know if it was the film or something else and the file size was about the same size anyway. Anyone got a clue here? Thanks for any help.
