Audio section? Square button with three dots? I don't know... You will have to figure out something.

I think the computer parts industry owes Atak a cut. How many of us have built new computers as a result of HD transcoding? :) Thanks again for all your work, Atak!

Ahh yes, I see it now, much appreciated!

Quick question. It says "Please Wait ...Converting TrueHD to FLAC..." on the bottom of the screen; however, I am able to change selections and click "done", even though that message is there.

Do I need to wait for this to disappear before clicking "done"? I only ask because when it demuxes, it shows a % completion, and everything is greyed out during that process.

Edit

nevermind, it finished the conversion and I will now start the process, thanks for all of your help!

I'll leave my post here in case someone else runs across the same question

I love this software for converting videos in mkv. I ripped many videos using ripbot but now Ripbot doesn't works. When I choose a video to rip in ripbot nothing happens. I can only see a window of new job and nothing else. The next step was, I suppose demultiplexing audio stream. When I delete the file ripbot264.ini and start the application, the audio demultiplexes but again nothing happens. I cannot choose destination file type and quality setting. Please help..................................................
I am using Windows 7 in my laptop with 1gb of RAM. Thanks....

I wonder, will there be support for blue ray 3ds?
I mean, will it be possible to demux a blue ray 3d movie and then encode it in 2d or 3d format?

maybe someday atak will succumb to our pleas and allow full hd track muxing =)

Many thanks for the new version atak. Keep up the great work.

Regarding retaining hd audio tracks, yes please is all i can say! Still not sure why it isn't being implemented? It's a legit feature which many other encoders have now.

It's a compliment to atak and ripbot that despite the above fact, we still remain with ripbot and don't defect!

Go on atak, put us out of our misery on v1.16.5! :)

hey atak,

:thanks:

thanks for the new version, it's great to see.
I second that: please put us out of our misery in 1.16.5.

Most of us realise that FLAC is lossless and has better compression than THD or DTSMA. I am still mesmerised by the blinking lights on my decoder. I would like to be able to mux in the dtsma or thd tracks without conversion to FLAC - though keeping this an option is essential.

Shot for creating the best gui by far.

Cheers
Jim

Now that MPCHC decodes blu-ray sup files. I would like to see that direct mux of sup files included in next version. will donate to have that option. have been doing manually all this time. including imbd url,and sup files as attachments, after encode. hows $20.00 sound? just from me. thx for the work you have been doing.
I have to admit.... Im getting used to paying for usefull apps in market, since android started taking over in smart phones\tablets.

In regards to the HD audio requests, is this coming from a non .mkv source? I have never had any issues compressing an already ripped .mkv file, and, the rip keeps the HD audio (my receiver lights up like it would if I put the blu ray in directly saying "HD Audio" or the like).

I did have an issue with one format, which was corrected in last release...or, are you guys referring to that issue?

of course ripbot works in win 7 =)
it sounds like it stops on gathering information?
usually, with my personal experience, this is a codec (FFDShow) problem. a full uninstall / reboot / reinstall may fix it. however you may want to search the thread, I know others have found other solutions.

HD audio doesn't usually work out so well in .mkv
most people have bluray source, not .mkv.
are you sure you actually have and keep HD audio though (DTS-HDMA or TrueHD)? sounds a bit weird...I may have to test that myself

I'll tell what I do know, and what my process has been.

1) Rip a blu ray using makemkv. I check the hd audio only for the audio track, and uncheck everything else during the burning process. I play this file on my htpc and it outputs HD audio as evident by the light lighting up on my Denon 4311 AVR.
2) I then open ripbot, select the same mkv as teh source, change the CQ to 18, leave the audio as X-Copy stream, and convert. About 6 hours later, I check the compressed file, and the light on my receiver lights up again.

I can definately tell when no HD audio is being used when I compare the same source together. I can output the same compressed mkv in a different player, one that does not bitstream, and then compare it to the one I ahve set up to bitstream, and there is a noticable difference when the HD audio is being outputted.

That's why I was wondering why everyone was talking about ripbot not being able to do HD audio, as I always have been able to.

Ripbot does not let you keep the original HD Audio track. So if you create an mkv with RipBot you do not get to keep the original DTS(MA) or TrueHD track. You can either keep as FLAC, core, AC3, or AAC

I just tested this (I put a DTS-HDMA track into an mkv and added to ripbot)
ripbot demuxed the track from the mkv and generated the job screen
It references the demuxed track and has a copy stream option
I checked the demuxed track itself, it is in fact still DTS-HDMA (i.e. not wav or flac or dts core)
so dzirkelb is correct, if you have HD audio in an mkv ripbot will allow you to copy it

on a side note the 'gathering information' seemed to take forever, and I don't have have a slow pc
guess it had something to do with the 26GB VC-1 track

pacaveli211
28th January 2011, 17:35
another note...if you browse to and select the demuxed audio track, it will just extract the core =P

This has always been the case for me, at least for the last year.

That being said, however, I had some issues with a couple movies that this would not work for. Here is an example of one that I had do to the FLAC for it to work (of my 150ish movie collection on my htpc, I had to do this for about 5).

how did you get your HTPC to output HD audio
as far as I know software won't play/output HD audio
especially WMP/Media Center

What makes you think that? With the correct hardware (i.e. AMD 5xxx/6xxx GPU, Clarkdale/Sandy Bridge, NVidia 430/450) it is easy to bitstream HD audio. I use FFDShow + MPC HC (http://www.mediasmartserver.net/2010/02/02/guide-setting-up-bitstreaming-with-your-windows-7-htpc-part-i/). Same goes for WMC as long as you shut off MF, etc...

dbone's guide is actually what I just *switched* to. I switched to that guide so I can bitstream HD audio using XBMC. Before I used shark codec pack and wmc classic.

All you need to do is either follow the guide above, or, download the latest windoes media player classic, download the latest shark codec pack, and then download mediabrowser. Install WMPC, install shark codec pack (tick the option for "use shark's recommended settings" after install), install mediabrowser (integrates with windows media center) and you are off.

I just switched to XBMC to give custom built intros to every movie, and I like the interface a littele better.

And, like dbone also said, you must have the correct hardware. I am using a MD 5570 and it works like a charm. For other GPU's, there will have to be different steps taken I'm sure.

anyone have any trouble with encodes doing like a frame shift kinda thing
this only applies to bluray players as it doesn't ever seem to have the issue (in the same place) on pcs
and seems to only happen in the movies that have heavy compression (i.e. bd9's but not bd25's)
this is something like what happens: http://i51.tinypic.com/2qco7wi.png
(this is just something I made, not a true snapshot of the issue, since it doesn't happen on PC)
it'll do this and then video playback halts for a few seconds...then resumes a few seconds ahead after skipping some video
anyone ever run into this / have any idea of the cause and/or a solution??
anyone know the answer / have a suggestion on this???

Hey Atak thanks for the updates bro. Have one question though. Why doesn't your program handle the *.mpeg extension? Its just a little bug Ive noticed. Almost half of the material I encode comes in under that extension. Seems kinda a bother to have to rename everything.

Anyhow great job.

Just tested a DTS-HD MKV (output from MakeMKV), and i can confirm the copy stream option was there for the audio!

However, also tested a TrueHD MKV (again, from MakeMKV), but didn't even get audio. Just vid.

Wonder if this is a work in progress from atak? Just about to test a DTS-HD m2ts to see if it also works.

Cheers

[EDIT:] I see. From m2ts, I get the wave, flac, and core options so can't test. It appears when selecting MKV as source, it skips the select stream screen.

pacaveli211
29th January 2011, 15:26
it's not a work in progress. it just seems to be a minor....overlook. I'm guessing that ripbot just assumes mkv's wouldn't have dts-hd and so it just demuxes without really checking.

Thanks for the new version, spent a couple of hours this afternoon trying to work out how to convert a HD WTV file, only to later find Ripbot now supports WTV files.

But I have a problem.

Ripbot only extracts a 2 channel audio stream, when the WTV has a 6 channel stream, in fact I think there are more than one stream in there - see Green Button link below.

Here's the demux log


eac3to v3.24

eac3to processing took 31 seconds.
Done.

If you read this thread (http://thegreenbutton.com/forums/t/82765.aspx) (theres only 3 pages), which I was reading earlier before finding out that Ripbot supports WTV it will shed some light on the problem.

I dragged the WTV file into Graphstudio, but it only showed 2 channel, even though I know this file is 5.1.

Following the advice in the Greenbutton thread I changed the settings in Media Center to English (MCE Settings:TV:Audio), then again dragged the WTV file to graphstudio, it now showed 6 channels.

http://i672.photobucket.com/albums/vv87/Ronskiman/Computer/GraphStudio.jpg

Now I again tried Ripbot, but it still only extracted the 2 channel audio.

Any ideas how to get the 5.1 audio?

I'm gona install this new windows and I wanna know if Ripbot is compatible with..

Thanks !!!

of course ripbot works in win 7 =)

OK ,but under 64 bit ???

...and a question for Atak : this version ( 64bit) will help or allow Ripbot to encode faster ???
some friends of mine told me that many softs are working faster under win7 64bit

With regards to FLAC and TrueHD tracks, I am having issues.

I select the movie, it demuxes, and shows no audio. I then select the .thd file and it does it's thing, then it is ready to go. I start the conversion; however, when it says it is completed, the output file is nowhere to be found.

I just tried doing two seperate ones, one outputting to my "G" drive, and one outputting to my desktop. Both results were, it took the regular 5ish hours to do it's thing, but at the end, no file was visible / created.

Any ideas?

You are right. I use mkvmerge with special switch to check what kind of audio streams are inside mkv file. Unfortunately / fortunately mkvmerge does not see difference between plain dts and dts-ma. Both are flaged as A_DTS and therefore dtsma has .dts extension instead of .dtsma.

Here is the contents of job2.avs

I'm not sure this matters, or why this happens, but the installation of ripbot is in my c:\program files(x86) folder. But, my temp files are located in g:\temp, and sometimes located in f:\temp. G and F are two hard drives I have added to my computer.

The majority of the time, I tell the output of ripbot to be in G or F to avoid having to trasnfer the file after the compression. I have tried sending the output file to F, G, and my local desktop and none of them worked.

The file itself is always located in my D drive (a 2nd partition of my 750gb hard drive, 100gb is the system drive C partition). I do not think I have tried outputting the file to the D drive yet for FLAC compressions.

You will have to wait for newer version then or use COPY STREAM option instead for now

The COPY STREAM isn't an option when using FLAC. I always use the COPY STREAM when compressing all other videos, including all other HD audio movies; however, TrueHD is the only format I require to use FLAC on. And, when I use FLAC, the option to do COPY STREAM is not allowed. And, to make sure I am looking in the right place, this would be located under the Profile drop down, correct? if so, the entire drop down box is greyed out when doing FLAC.

Does this new version work under win 7 64 bit ??

I'm gona install this new windows and I wanna know if Ripbot is compatible with..

Thanks !!!



OK ,but under 64 bit ???

...and a question for Atak : this version ( 64bit) will help or allow Ripbot to encode faster ???
some friends of mine told me that many softs are working faster under win7 64bit

I've been running Win7 64 bit since the beginning without issue. A review of previous posts will show that Ripbot is not 64 bit software and requires 32 bit version of Java (or ffdshow, I forget which one). All that a 64bit version of an operating system does for you is allow you to address memory sizes of 4GB and up (which means you can load more programs into RAM). Where this comes in as an advantage to Ripbot is that Ripbot uses x264 and x264 has a 64bit version that is reported to run at least 10% faster (my guess is because it can load more into memory at any given time).

Since Ripbot is not an "Installed" program, then there is no harm in trying to run it on your 64bit O/S since it is run from its own directory and nothing else is installed other than Ripbot's prerequisites (i.e. Java, ffdshow, Halli, etc.). Windows 7 also has options to run a program as if it were running under an older O/S as well.

New installer just released. Sorry for the delay. I added a couple of things to this one. mainly a sub-folder in the start menu that gives access to tools not readily available because of location in the program files folder. I might be adding a shell that gives access to all the command line tools later but for now this should do... Enjoy... Oh yeah also includes a stable build of AVISynth MT...

Hi there! Few questions:

I was wondering, what does the CRF should be when encoding BD movies? I know lower is best quality / biger size. But should i go under 18 for a max quality? Or its not worth it? The option (Low Priority) on the ripbot, what does it do? And can ripbot convert TrueHD and DTS to AC3 600? Im talking about only the audio, no video. Thanks!

This is an excellent update for new users for sure! It makes it very easy to do the install.

I installed this new version and tried my compression with a TrueHD film using FLAC and I still have the issue where it completes the entire process, but the output file never appears. I don't think you addresses this in the new update, but in case you did, I am still having issues.

Just tested a DTS-HD MKV (output from MakeMKV), and i can confirm the copy stream option was there for the audio!

However, also tested a TrueHD MKV (again, from MakeMKV), but didn't even get audio. Just vid.

Wonder if this is a work in progress from atak? Just about to test a DTS-HD m2ts to see if it also works.

Cheers

[EDIT:] I see. From m2ts, I get the wave, flac, and core options so can't test. It appears when selecting MKV as source, it skips the select stream screen.

I usually encode the movie using Ripbot. Then after its done, open the movie .m2ts in tsmuxer. Mux out the HD track. Then use mkvtoolnix and open the .mkv of the movie you encoded. Then just add the HD track you muxed out, and uncheck the core, or flac track that Ripbot added. Done. Then I have a full True-HD or DTS-MA track that works with my receiver. Yeah its a little out of the way to do, but it works. :)

from mathematic point of view yes you should go as low as possible but from human point of view it won't make huge difference.

Download DGSplit and create 50 mb sample (original .wtv). File send me to www.mediafire.com

Since posting I've tried a couple more files. I've found one's from BBC HD that don't produce an error have AC3, whilst ITV HD files have just 2 channel sound.

I've uploaded three files to MediaFire (http://www.mediafire.com/?tw22qndm45o5m).

The BBC HD file gives an error as shown below
The BBC HD with AC3 works fine
The ITV HD file only shows in Ripbot as having 2 channel sound

Here's the error I get with the BBC HD file

I just do not understand what this is all about. yes, the quote said wait for new version, it also said "or use COPY STREAM.". Key word is "or". I get the fact that the new version will fix it, I replied to the copy stream portion. That isn't an option, or, if it is, then I am not seeing it, and am simply asking for guidance.

If, however, the copy stream is not an option, nor will it fix any issue, then please just say "copy stream won't work, regardless of what was posted". Or, if it will, then tell me how it will.

Bottom line, i get a new version will fix the issue. From what I am understanding, the copy stream portion either was misposted, will fix the issue but I need guidance on how to do it, or, say that copy stream will not fix it and that I flat out have to wait for a new version, and I will ignore that portion of the post all together.

that's the option i use to dump to a single 6-8 channel wav file but i still have to use eac3to with this command (eac3to.exe "x:\a\a.w64" "x:\a\6channel.wavs") yes wavs which outputs an independent wav for each channel. 6channel.L.wav, 6channel.C.wav, 6channel.R.wav and so on. it would be awesome if you could add an option to have ripbot264 do this so i cant cut out the extra conversion step. thanks again.

Hi Atak_Snajpera!

Thx for your wonderful work once again! :)

Could I ask of you if you would mind adding the possibility to keep the DTS-MA (HD) or TrueHD track in the complete rip as of choice? As u now can with the other sounds like DTS and so on?
Or even better to have thoose above and also have DTS or AC3 in the same release, I mean in the end, like DTS-HD set to "Default Track Flag: Yes" and on the same ouput "Default Track Flag: Default", that would set DTS-HD as the first to play! :)
Since as of now I allways have to mux that one back to get a complete release!
One more thing... could u make the list of subtitles "strechable" so one can see more of the subtiltles added and for easyer overview for us to sort them ? ;)

Hi Atak_Snajpera.

Hi. I was told to use Ripbot for what I want to do but don't see how. I have some 720p .mkv movies that are 6 to 8 meg and I want to resize them down to 4.37 to fit on 1 dvd-r. Will Ripbot do this and if so can someone tell me what I need to do please? I went thru all the settings and didn't see any option for file size output. Or should I be using something else for this. I tried Handbrake but after the convertions, the .srt subtitles are out of sinc and I can't get them back in sinc. Maybe I'm not doing correctly. I'm a noob at all of this still. Thanks.

The RipBot v1.16.4 not recognize the audio on some containers MKV with AC3 audio when I select the output MP4 or MKV.
When he recognizes the AC3 audio from a MKV, the synchronization does not work well while converting to AAC in a container of MP4.

@alpine_92, I've also noticed that with the recent x264 builds.

Atak_Snajpera
9th February 2011, 20:36
r1867
VFR/framerate-aware ratecontrol, part 2
MB-tree and qcomp complexity estimation now consider the duration of a frame in their calculations.
This is very important for visual optimizations, as frames that last longer are inherently more important quality-wise.
Improves VFR-aware PSNR as much as 1-2db on extreme test cases, ~0.5db on more ordinary VFR clips (e.g. deduped anime episodes).

WARNING: This change redefines x264's internal quality measurement.
x264 will now scale its quality based on the framerate of the video due to the aforementioned frame duration logic.
That is, --crf X will give lower quality per frame for a 60fps video than for a 30fps one.
This will make --crf closer to constant perceptual quality than previously.
The "center" for this change is 25fps: that is, videos lower than 25fps will go up in quality at the same CRF and videos above will go down.
This choice is completely arbitrary.

Note that to take full advantage of this, x264 must encode your video at the correct framerate, with the correct timestamps.

pacaveli211
10th February 2011, 02:33
doesn't handbrake use x264 as well?
if so then they're not really going to come out any better (quality wise) being that they're encoded using the same thing
it's just about setting the correct x264 options and ease of application use =)

CrazyBricker
10th February 2011, 03:39
Yes, Handbrake uses x264. What I mean by better is the subtitles being in sync after I make them smaller in size. The quality was fine, just the subtitles were not. I left the default settings and only changed the filesize. Hopefully, that's all I need to do. Or do I need to adjust the frames and other things? I opened the .mkv with MediaInfo and it shows the encoding settings. Should I be trying to match the encoding settings in Ripbot or Handbrake? Thanks.

I just started 2 and am going to crash. I'll know how it goes when I wake up.

EDIT: So far so good. Have 1 done and it looks great and subtitles still in sinc. Awesome! Thank you again! :D Next one goes from 1080p to 720p.

LigH
10th February 2011, 09:13
@ alpine_92:

1) CRF is a rather constant rate between an "optimal" quality and a desired quality. If one movie is very easy to compress (e.g. little motion, little sharpness), it needs less bitrate to preserve a given fraction of the "optimal" video quality because already the optimum needs less bitrate. More motion and more details (sharpness) need more bitrate to be preserved good enough.

2) The definition of the optimum and its fraction changed in the latest x264 versions supporting variable framerates. They now depend on the framerate.

Hi,

I just wrote a guide for Ripbot and converting a Blu-ray to MKV here:
http://www.dvd-guides.com/guides/blu-ray-rip/252-rip-blu-ray-to-mkv

It clears some questions, but still I have some issues, for example why can't I get a COPY STREAM option when the Blu-ray audio is DTS?

If you have any suggestions please PM me.

I can't say I've ever seen a bluray with just DTS, so I'll assume you mean DTS-HDMA or DTS-HDHR. in which case you'll need to make sure you're choosing the 'core' option.

I'll try later and update the guide. However these options should be explained in the GUI. You don't know that you have to choose core for DTS or that FLAC doesn't work the same as WAV. And testing in order to find out takes a lot of time.

eh, it's a free app man. and the options (at least these that we're talkin about) are kinda self explanatory...
wav decodes / decompresses the audio to wav
flac encodes it to flac
core extracts the core

there's always google if you don't understand what things are / what they mean

3: will this convert from a dts-ma entire source or just the dts-core?

Thanks.

1. yes you can manually specify any x264 switches and save them. each profile has a corresponding text file...or you can edit the profile in ripbot itself

2. yes you must install / have things: ffdshow, avisynth, haali, Java

3. you can do either

Hi

I've been using Ripbot 1.16.3 for a while now and have switched to 1.16.4. I have noticed that MP4box isn't addressing files over 2Gb. Then I compared the two versions and realized that 1.16.3 has the gpac patch and another dll library and that isn't included in 1.16.4. Although the newer version of mp4box is significantly bigger. Maybe the dynamic library and patch are included but isn't working? Anyone else having this problem?

I was also wondering if someone could tell me the difference between the three audio options; wave, flac and core. Is core, the 1.5mb/s, 5.1 core version of TrueHD. It sounds like wave rips a separate wave file for each audio channel. And flac, well, flac is lossless and sounds like it compresses better. I have a nice home theater setup at home and would like to have the best possible audio, whether that be Dolby-THD or DTS MA. But it doesn't seem like Ripbot supports that currently.

So I'm wondering which option is better, and is it possible to keep the original best audio track. An hour episode on blu ray is like 9Gb with a crf of 20. The audio track is about 200Mb for ac3. I'd rather keep the best track possible. Thanks.

dude, the audio options were just discussed. while you obviously can't be expected to go through 455 pages of posts you could try checking the page you're on / the one before it.
fyi TrueHD does not have a 1.5mbps core, it (generally) has a 640kbps core. DTS-HD HR/MA will (once again, generally) have a 1.5mbps core. Lossless and compression do not simultaneously coincide. with compression is quality loss, even if in negligible or minimal amounts. Depending on your home theater setup you probably can't play FLAC...unless you have something like a WDTV / HTPC / some other media player. RipBot doesn't support HD audio stream copying, if you want to keep them just mux them in after encoding.

OK, so just as a rough guide aac audio @ 128kbps@=approximately same as mp3 @240kbps.

Any1 here got bit-rate Vs quality with aac vs flac, or flac vs Lpcm, ogg... etc.

Also, in AC3. ..... ac3 is the container but what is the audio codec/whatever inside?

pacaveli211: thanks for the reply. Sorry about the double post, I guess I didn't refresh the page since yesterday. I'm actually using an Apple TV2 and streaming from my server. I've tested a few encoded MP4's with the flac option and it seems to work fine.
I was going to start ripping to MKV and I see the option for copy stream. Is this the same as tsmuxing the HD track (DTS-MA or Dolby THD), then mkvmerge'ing the the audio to the encoded video?

ripbot doesn't support copying HD audio (excluding the exception someone found the other day in which it'll copy DTS-HDMA from an mkv). so if you're seeing 'copy stream' it's just referring to the core or whatever is in the job folder

erm, ok....Ripbot looking ok for now, I did notice that when trying to select flac as audio i got an error from eac3to saying that MSVCP71.dll was missing

i found that dll on google, BUT it wont play ball
i know the process of what i`m doing is ok, as i re-registered an existing .dll that was allready there.

I assume i`ve got the wrong type of dll ?


I have Win7 Home Premium 64Bit

so do i look for a 32bit/64bit dll ?
also there seems to be .com + .net types too.......confused ! LOL

any1 got a link to a GOOD dll ? (since theres bound to be ppl here run into the same issue)

According to this:
http://www.dts.com/DownloadDocument.aspx?q=a7beda1e-cfe6-4ca4-b6b2-cda9554bb6a5

DTS Core is the "legacy" audio provided for systems that do not support the Extension. In older systems, you just listen to the Core. In modern systems, the decoder takes the core (lossy), then compares the data with the Extension (lossless) and applies the extra data that needs to be played and are lost in the core to deliver the best possible audio experience.

Bottom line, if you don't have a decoder that support DTS-HD (and I mean a hardware one), just using the Core option to demux and then copy stream, you will hear the exact same sound you would hear by demuxing the DTS-HD channel and mux it in the mkv yourself. Minus about 1GB of audio data.

So unless you have a home theater equipment (decoder) that supports it, just copy the Core.

Hey DJ-1

I had that msvcp71.dll problem too. The way I fixed it was I just moved the downloaded .dll to windows\system32. Ripbot also complained about a msvcr71.dll file too. I downloaded and moved it there too and haven't had a problem since.

yes, just manually demux / remux it back in
if your source is true bluray you should get used to scanning with bdinfo / and demuxing using the playlist via eac3to
this is sometimes necessary because of multi m2ts/branched movies and audio overlaps

Yes, just demux with tsMuxeR, encode with Ripbot264 (or Handbrake) the video and then mux with mkvmerge.

If you will convert Blu-rays regularly I have found that DVDFab Blu-ray Ripper greates nice quality MKV files, with CUDA support (much faster than Ripbot if you have nVidia card) and will copy the DTS-HD intact.

would it be possible to include an option in the next version to encode an entire folder full of files?

I've tried Mediacoder for this as it supports it as well as cuda based encoding...but it's crap. It's dressed up nicely...but still crap. The results are blockiness and files that generally end up LARGER than the original. If i try to keep the same bitrate as the original, there is tons of blocks and ghosting. Total waste of time.

Also tried DVDFab as it has Cuda support as well...same thing. File size was the same/larger...and quality was not as good.

Why Cuda based encoding is such crap is beyond me.

Ripbot gets it right every time and all I have to do is add the movie and select the ipad profile. It would just make it more convenient if it had the ability to be given a folder and it would enumerate the files within.

Supporting CUDA is very difficult programing-wise. That is why most encoders are still way behind x264.

However I have found that DVDFab in high quality mode, using CUDA, provides nice files, in about half the time x264 does.

The file sizes are not standard, as DVD Fab calculates just video bitrate - size and then adds audio.

nst6563
13th February 2011, 17:04
I just ran a file (spongebob episode) through dvdfab and was watching GPU-Z and when run through high quality mode(2pass) there was no GPU usage on my 8800gts or GTX260. It did encode fast...but roughly the same speed as ripbot on the same file.

Given that, Ripbot still produced better results.

Hell if I had the skills I'd love to help out on the Cuda side of encoding. It would be awesome to see HD content encoded using both CPU and GPU and getting FPS in the hundreds.

Anyway, I still think the idea of folder support in Ripbot would be useful for more people than just myself. I wouldn't think it's that hard to implement either...but then again, I'm just familiar with vbscript and vb.net... I have no clue how Ripbot is coded to handle things.

I assume theres a seperate app called `Dvdfab Bluray ripper`

i hope its not what i`ve been looking at so far as it takes around 5mins just to launch the app!, each option change in the set-up panel needs an application restart, only to find it HASN`T applied the setting at al........Bloody awfull !!

Hello, I'm fairly new to Ripbot and I have a question.
What exactly is the new option Core for the audio?
I'm trying to back up my BD of Eternal Sunshine... from 1080p to 720p.
I added 2 different jobs in my queue:
1. I did not choose Core but 5.1 aften AC3 640 kbps. Choosing 2 pass with a target size of 6 gigs I get 7133 kbps (frames?)
Looking in the job folder I see the audio file is 3.46 gigs.

2. I chose Core. Selecting 2 pass with a target of 6 gigs gives me 6243 kbps. Looking in the job folder, the audio file is only 1.13 gigs.

So what is Core? Is it the lossy dts track on the BD? And seeing the size of it, is it less than 640 kbps? I'm confused...
Looking at my 2 examples, am I right to assume option number 1 will give me the best audio?
I would try both but considering a job takes about 18-20 hours, that seems like a waste just for a test.

Thanks in advance...

nst6563
14th February 2011, 05:20
I haven't used the new Core option, but I would assume it's for the HD audio track - I'm probably wrong tho ;)

As for your test, drop the settings to something totally awful. I do that when doing a test encode on titles which seem to be difficult for whatever reason (I think District 9 was being obnoxious due to subtitles). I dropped all settings to minimum and let it run. I went from the avg 6-10fps on a Bluray title to the 60's. Once I got the subs the way I wanted, I cranked up the settings and did a final encode. 2-3 hours is a lot easier to waste than 18-20 ;)

Yes it is the lossy track of DTS. But it shouldn't be that small, it usually is around 1500kbps check your original BD.

Hi,

what do you mean with main movie? This is what I would do in your case:

-Extract ALL the data with PowerISO.
-Run BDInfo, load your BDMV folder to see which playlist contains the movie.
-Load that playlist in tsMuxeR and demux all the streams you need. (check the attachment for the correct settings)
-Load the demuxed streams in Ripbot and encode.

You can find downloads for all the tools you need here (http://www.dvd-guides.com/downloads/category/9-blu-ray-rip).

@fusebyte
There isn't a 64bit version of RipBot264 as of now.
The 32bit version of RipBot264 works with 64bit perfectly fine, it uses the 64bit version of x264 to encode video on a 64bit Operating System and utilizes multiple core when encoding.
x264 is the one doing the encoding, RipBot264 is the GUI that allows you to set your preference of the encoded output easily.

when encode with RIPBOT264 my CPU works around 98-100% and temperature 85°-100° celsius
when encode with MEDIACODER_x64 my CPU works around 60-70% max and temperature max 67° celsius.
I thought that my CPU with ripbot264 seeks more because it does not work in multithreading mode, but if you tell me that RIPBOT264 works with all CPU's core...

But since I prefer to work with RIPBOT264, I ask U , how can i set x264_x64?

Lighto,thanks so much!

Actually, higher CPU usage is better as the encoding finishes faster. So Ripbot does a better job than Mediacoder.

As to how to enable it, the answer is just one page prior:

---------------------
// it will use 64bit version of x264 on 64bit Windows. Up to 10% faster encoding speed.
Usex264x64=1
---------------------
RipBot264.ini

Usex264x64=1

Please forgive my ignorance, how and where do I enable Usex264x64 = 1?

14th February 2011, 20:59
It's in RipBot264.ini as it says in the quote. Should be already enabled if you have 64bit Windows.

you can always open task manager (ctrl+shift+esc) and check the performance tab to see what's going on with each of your cores, as far as usage

Both the installer version and the 7z version have x64 enabled by default. The setting is there I believe for people who wish to set it to zero in x64 windows to test how the speed differs.
Overall the x64 codec only goes at average 10~11% faster then the x86 and yes both x86 and x64 versions of the codec are mutithreaded.

Great program, best so far by mile!.

couple of question...
1:when in 2pass mode does the bitrate cover both passes, or does one pass get most of the attention more than the other ?

2: possible to have 1 pass `Bitrate mode, I.E: VBR-Contant or Average`.... make it a bit more flexible the QR mode that way ?

3:is there any good sources of info on some of the terminology for some of the advanced profile options, for instance, i know somw like QPEL, De-blocking etc...some apps give `info` if you hover over the selection...would be a nice touch :)

Wave, Flac or Core???

What is the difference?

Basically I use Ripbot to make BD9 from my blurays. I just want to keep 5.1 surround and do not worry to much about HD audio.

Which should I be choosing from the start, Wave, Flac or Core?

Thanks :)

Ive used both Flac and Wave and havent heard a difference between either one. Core is just the core part of the DTS-HD Audio track but I think Flac and Wave convert the whole thing. Not sure though.

Yes it is the lossy track of DTS. But it shouldn't be that small, it usually is around 1500kbps check your original BD.

Also read:
http://www.dvd-guides.com/guides/blu-ray-rip/254-dts-hd-how-to-rip-it
Thanks afonic for the guide. It makes more sense now.

Also, I ripped an episode of The Pacific from my BD as a test. First time using the Core audio and the second time using the 5.1 Aften AC3 @640kbps.
The latter sounds better, am I crazy or what? Shouldn't the Core be the better one of the 2?
How can I find out exactly what's the bitrate of the Core audio?

Short info about audio options:
WAVE - Whole lossless DTS-MA/TrueHD will be decompressed to wave
FLAC - similar as above but with Flac (Free Lossless Audio Codec) compression. Better compression than DTS-MA/TrueHD but only compatible with .mkv container!
CORE - This option will extract only lossy core part. DTS 1,5 Mbps if source is DTS-MA or AC3 640 kbps if source is TrueHD

If you don't know what to choose leave default WAVE option!

Hey Atak,

Is it poss to get confirmation that you are planning/considering on implementing the option to retain TrueHD/DTS-HD audio on mkv in a future version?

I'm a pain in the arse, i know! :D

Hi,

three questions,

1)When selected wave in DTSHD, does it use the lossless DTS-HD stream or does it require a commercial decoder like Arcsoft otherwise falls back to Core?

2)I selected the Core option for a TrueHD Blu-ray just now, but I didn't get a "copy stream" option in mkv format.

3)Would you suggest extracting the HD audio and reencode or just keep the Core?

I assume from the log below that I'm able to decode the full lossless DTS-HD MA soundtrack converted to a wav as Arcsoft is shown as in use, but it seems it reduces the bit depth from 24bit to 16bit.
12033
Once the lossless DTS MA audio is decoded, I'll usually want to convert it to a 24bit 640kbps AC3 file, is it possible for Ripbot to leave the decoded DTS MA audio at 24bit or will I have to use eac3to outside of Ripbot to get a 24bit 640kbps ac3 file? Thanks

Well Arcsoft is being used alright, do you have any of their programs installed or does Ripbot contain it somehow?

It's in the Ripbot Tools, ax folder.

Having looked at the ac3 file from a recently converted project, it seems that the resulting dolby audio is 24 bit, so Ripbot through eac3to has downsampled the 24bit DTSMA audio from 24bit to 16bit and then upsamples it from 16 to 24bit in the Aften ac3 conversion. That's obviously not desireable as you've lost the original 24bit quality in the downsample.

Why is there a need to convert the DTSHD-MA audio when importing (unless you just want the core)? If you've got the Arcsoft encoder installed, can't it just be demuxed to a dtshd file and then converted as required in the output side?

yeah, i wondered about this, why not dump the raw audio , AC3 or PCM straight to HDD when demuxing, then (assuming output file is gonna have audio conversion) Audio is only converted once ??

I am not sure how legal this is, but I don't want to be a deal breaker anyway so let it be.

If you download eac3to plus some GUI you will see what the various options are and what audio it produces. What it does is decoding (not demuxing) the audio to wave format and then uses that to re-encode to AC3.

If you ask me, the audio options are not so clear in Ripbot so I just use the Core option and keep the Core track in my mkv files, since I am just passing through via sp/dif to a DTS decoder that doesn't support HD. Staxrip has more complex audio configurations with exact eac3to settings.

i just try to decode a ".m2ts" file into "mp4".
The program end the decoding without errors, but...
in the output directory i have nothing!!

here is the info on the ini file:
//Directory must exists!!! D:\movies\ is correct but D:\movies is incorrect!
DefaultOutputPath=D:\TempBluRay1\

and, of course, directory "TempBluRay1" on drive "D:" exist!!

I have been just keeping the DTS core file, but at 1509kbps it's a fairly big file. An ac3 file at 640kbps is a lot smaller but produces similar sound quality, so then I've got a better video bitrate bearing in mind that on these particular videos I'm looking at 3.95gb 720p MKV to fit on a FAT32 HDD. I guess I'll just have to convert the lossless DTSHD audio to ac3 in eac3to outside of Ripbot and then mux it to the BD before opening it in Ripbot, this way I'll avoid the loss in quality from the original lossless file (24bit down to 16bit) which Ripbot seems to introduce into the process.

Yes that would be a good choice. Actually as Ripbot does use Arcsoft and uses the whole lossless part, you are fine just selecting Wave and then let it convert your audio to AC3.

In my case I don't really care about the file size so I leave the Core.

No I'm not, that was my issue, when doing that in Ripbot, it downsamples from 24bit to 16bit.

I too have started getting "mp4box.exe has stopped working". Unfortunately I have not had the time to examine the output files (if any are there). The settings I use are just CQ=22 or 20 (depending on the output I want) and set my audio (always 5.1 for me).

Has anyone else received the MP4BOX.EXE error?

MP4Box had some known bug with files over a size limit. Thought it may have to do with the file size as in your second attemp you use a higher bitrate, hence a bigger file.

Well you must be right, It must be some sort of bug. Maybe a fix for this in the next version? I would really like to be able to utilize the full bitrate from the input file to the final file. Anyway I guess I will have to settle for -3000 bitrate vids(this still looks amazing)

Demux with DGIndex & have it create an AVS script (it has a template function) ....

Feed DGIndex generated AVS script into Ripbot264, select the demuxed audio track for audio muxing ...

You will need to adjust the DGIndex AVS template to include the function that you want performed with Avisynth ...

I will run a test today and I'll let you know.

You can always use mkv instead. :)

I would use mkv but Im trying to .mp4 for xbox 360 playback

Thanks, I will try it out. I've tried using GOTSent, XenonMKV and all that sort of stuff but to be honest, if i can get RipBot264 to work with full bitrate I won't be going back to any of them, as this has the best looking GUI, best settings and is so simple to use.

Please,

The RipBot v1.16.4 not recognize the audio on some containers MKV with AC3 audio when I select the output MP4 or MKV.
When he recognizes the AC3 audio from a MKV, the synchronization does not work well while converting to AAC in a container of MP4.
I use o Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

Excellent software. Congratulations!

Solved by making the DEMUX with tsMuxeR, from the MKV file.

Thanks!

smokerdalejash,

I gave it a try and it produced an error. However I think I have the solution to your problem.

Download this file:
http://cid-23d230fef2480b61.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/pub/misc/mp4box-20091004.7z

Then go in Ripbot264/Tools rename the mp4box folder to mp4box_old or something, extract this file and rename its folder to mp4box.

It should now create over 4GB Mp4 files correctly.

If you haven't delete the temp files from your previous project, just open a command line and copy paste this line from your log:
C:\>"C:\Users\Callum\Desktop\RipBot264\tools\mp4box\mp4box.exe" -tmp "C:\temp\RipBot264temp" -add "C:\temp\RipBot264temp\video.264":name="title02" -fps 25 -add "C:\temp\RipBot264temp\audio.aac":lang=eng -mpeg4 -chap "C:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\chapters.txt" -new "C:\Users\Callum\Desktop\title02.mp4"
and it should create the mp4 file just fine without re-encoding.

************************************************
and few questions regarding a 1080p encode :
- is this normal ?? 18 Mbps and subme 7
or
Encoding settings : cabac=1 / ref=3 / deblock=1:0:0 / analyse=0x3:0x133 / me=umh /
subme=7 / psy=1 / psy_rd=1.00:0.00 / mixed_ref=1 / me_range=16 / chroma_me=1 / trellis=1 /
8x8dct=1 / cqm=0 / deadzone=21,11 / fast_pskip=1 / chroma_qp_offset=-2 / threads=6 /
sliced_threads=0 / nr=0 /....

many people say that " If CPU is not good enough, you can set subme 9 and me umh " and better is 10 ;-)

- also many people say that must be used a Ref. Frames of min 4-5 and not 3 as is usually used..just for watching on different media players like egreat, popcornhour, a.s.o.

What is your oppinion about these problems ???

Sounds about right. This movie has simple, slow paced scenes, so the bitrate stays low most of the time.

Suggestion

Occurred while opening a VOB file...

1) Properties > Audio Delay (ms) = Change sequence of 50, 100, 150,... for 0, 1, 2, 3,... 999
Not allowed to do the exact adjustment of synchronization.

2) Video length in milliseconds
The length remains in decimal, with the rounding of time.

About Delay:
Constant audio: The length of the audio is changed.
Variable audio (untouchable): The length of the video is changed.
As the RipBot working with these two situations of delay?

12089 - 11968 = 121 delay
Currently I can not adjust the delay of 121. The closest value allowed is 100 or 150

I can usually rip a 1080p Blu-ray in about 8 hours. I know that the Avatar Collector's Edition is 3 hours long but it's taking more than 24 hours to do the rip, with the same high profile and quality target setting.

Is there something special about that Blu-ray that's causing it to encode very slowly?

Okay so finally I found out the issue. My motherboard was somehow killing my CPU power. Was causing problems in games as well. Replaced it and things are speedy again.

But has anyone gotten the normal English forced subtitles to work? When I burn them in, it burns at the wrong time, a few minutes off. When I try to make them selectable, It screws up and just keeps the first line that shows up on there forever.

pacaveli211
22nd February 2011, 06:01
subtitles have to be the most annoying thing ever
especially when you start getting into the forced tracks.
what is your target? you could just extract and keep the sup if you have something that will support them
or manually use something like suprip if you can't get them working properly in ripbot
I actually have an .ssa file I made for avatar. I used a papyrus font so it looks fairly close to the original subs
you're welcome to check it out / use it if you'd like: http://hotfile.com/dl/87910066/91c158f/avatar2.ssa
fyi avatar is the current winner for taking the most encode time compared to other stuff I've done.
so regardless of the issue you had...avatar often will take substantially longer

@ jandor:

A difference of durations is not a delay. It is possible that an audio stream is shorter/longer than a video stream. Their "granularities" are different. Accept it.

a difference in durations CAN be a delay. however it's fairly common that the audio stream will be a bit shorter. it usually cuts off before the video actually does

Entering in:

By selecting "Film", the "Preview Script" is too slow, and perhaps the encoding.
Someone could explain why this slowness?

pacaveli211
22nd February 2011, 21:40
did you consider that maybe it's the extra load on the cpu to perform the denoise that's causing the lag?...
or just the general script processing itself

it's not gonna change the framerate or anything like that

you could always test encode a small section if you're worried

Anyone else using AVG Free getting told that Ripbot264.exe is dangerous malware?

It comes up fine when you scan it from the file menu, but when you run it, it sets AVG off and it wants to quarantine Ripbot264.exe, MP4BOX.exe & SetACL_x64.exe. (I think it is actually SetACL_x64.exe that sets it off).

Don't get me wrong, I have been a Ripbot264 for years now, so I don't think Atak Snajpera is up to anything shifty. I think that the latest AVG update has made it a bit too sensitive.

Did anybody look into this problem?

I've looked through the thread and can't see any replies relating to it.

Since posting I've tried a couple more files. I've found one's from BBC HD that don't produce an error have AC3, whilst ITV HD files have just 2 channel sound.

I've uploaded three files to MediaFire (http://www.mediafire.com/?tw22qndm45o5m).

The BBC HD file gives an error as shown below
The BBC HD with AC3 works fine
The ITV HD file only shows in Ripbot as having 2 channel sound

Here's the error I get with the BBC HD file

DirectShowSource: couldn't open file E:\temp\RipBot264temp\job10\BBC HD.ts:
The system cannot find the file specified.

http://cid-23d230fef2480b61.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/pub/misc/mp4box-20091004.7z

Then go in Ripbot264/Tools rename the mp4box folder to mp4box_old or something, extract this file and rename its folder to mp4box.

It should now create over 4GB Mp4 files correctly.

If you haven't delete the temp files from your previous project, just open a command line and copy paste this line from your log:

Thanks, the new Mp4Box works great.
P.S. You can also use Mp4Box GUI to recover

yeah I previously suggested that ripbot should be able to 'pillar box' 4:3 ar stuff into a 16:9 resolution
fyi bluray players will play 4:3 stuff, like 1440x1080, or whatever the standard is
you'll just probably have to adjust your tv/player when watching it

I know but in the past i was able to convert a 4:3 1.33 size to fit on a 16:9 1:35 ratio and play has a 1080P 16:9 format but only display the 4:3 image.

Took the example of Fantasia HD 16:9 Bluray released in that same situation, is the same.

So i just would like to know if ripbot is not able or just a setting method to took 1080P image.

It is the first movie that happened such an out-of-sync....Can someone explain me what are the reasons for such an error ??
There are special settings to do before encoding ???

Thanks for replay !

PS : If it's necesary I can give you more details ,just tell me !!!

In some cases, when I did a "TS muxing" in a MKV with the tsMuxeR to obtain a TS, the RipBot accused some delay problems.
When I began using the "Demux" I had no problems of delay.
It was the way I managed to escape from the TS format, which in my case here, he is not very well accepted by RipBot.
I do not exchange the RipBot264 for any other, he is excellent.

its probably been asked in here already, can Ripbot do 4:3 --> 16:9, or 1:85 conversion ?
i want to convert old tv shows etc, but some of the old content is 4:3

muxing doesn't need codecs (as far as I know). it's decoding / playing that does
did you check the log for errors? does your destination drive have enough space for it to finish?
try a manual mux using the .264 from the temp (the audio and subs will be in the job folder itself)

Just a noob typ question. I often have MKV containers that have 24fps or 25fps that I need to change 23.976 the problem we all know is the audio becoming un-synced. I've done a search on this and I believe the only answer is use eac3to. I've recently downloaded the latest version (I was using ver. 1.1.4.6 and much has improved). Is there a way of doing this within Ripbot now? I know it has the assume --> 23.976 but I don't see an option to stretch or shrink the audio to match the new video. If I choose the assume option will it automatically adjust the audio? If it doesn't have this ability yet, Atak do you think this is something that could be added in the future?

thanks again!

pacaveli211
1st March 2011, 02:46
yeah, ripbot has never done it as far as I know
and eac3to is the only thing I know of that will do it
btw anything that plays 23.967fps should play 24fps just fine

1) Last week when i was encoding a t.v show episode it got stuck on muxing am i missing a codec

A "codec" is a converter for video or audio formats, implemented as loadable plugin, integrated in a software or operating system.

Multiplexing combines several streams and wraps them into a container; it does not "convert", so a multiplexer does not use any "codec".

If the multiplexing process gets stuck, the multiplexer doesn't work correctly. Depending on your target format, there are different multiplexer tools used. But as long as you don't tell us details (which contained formats to be multiplexed into which container format), your report doesn't tell us anything.


2) i encoded a movie file the original rip was blu-ray which was encoded to avi not by me i grabbed it from torrents ...

is it possible to include crop, resolution, fps, in customer profile aswell as the usual stuff in the profile?
this way if I have a queue of things with resolution change/whatever I don't have to go and edit output options of each job in queue if they're all the same?

cheers

pacaveli211
1st March 2011, 16:10
crop and resolution both seem to be done through avisynth
so they're not something you can put in the profile. there may be a way to create a custom script or something...but someone else would need to help you with that
there is a --fps 24000/1001 switch in the x264 cmd...so you may be able to to specify that in the profile

RipBot does it, that's the reason I started using it!

On the 'Edit Job' dialog hit "Properties", then next button - at the bottom is a drop down box for "Output Speed." Select "Assume -> 23.976 FPS"

It will slow down the audio from 25 FPS to 23.97 FPS no problem.

I also use eac3to for this, if I'm not otherwise using RibBot.

@jandor

Thanks !!

But maybe you use "m2ts muxing" option instead of Demux..Using Demux means to split image from sound , to encode separatelly and finally to paste them...I've tried this but no good results , just same error :(

I remember that Atak told smb few time ago to change extension , but I'm not sure......

Hey i got a question. Converting DTS to AC3 640, is it worth it? It can save up to 1-4gig per movie, and i think the sound is still great. How much exacly do u loose? I dont want to regret after i encode 25 BD's. And what is the diference between eac3to and aften? Are they the same?

DTS and AC3 are both supposed to be transparent
DTS-HDMA and DTS are NOT the same thing
if you're encoding DTS-HD to AC3 you're dropping HD audio
and from what you've said...I'm guessing that's what you're doing since you wouldn't be dropping 1-4GB by simply encoding a DTS 1536 core to AC3
personally I look very negatively on such things...but it's all up to you. if you have a nice home theater setup and such, I would suggest you keep the HD audio. if you're watching movies on your grandma's 26" CRT tv....


eac3to and aften are just different softwares that can be used for AC3 encoding (eac3to also capable of much more)...obviously they're not the same.
I have no idea how their encoding compares though.

That's great Atak, thanks! Obvious question, if original audio is dts then the only opton is, if you want the audio speed adjusted, is to convert to ac3 right? It doesn't appear to give a dts to dts conversion/adjust audio speed.

smokerdalejash,

I gave it a try and it produced an error. However I think I have the solution to your problem.

Download this file:
http://cid-23d230fef2480b61.skydrive.live.com/self.aspx/pub/misc/mp4box-20091004.7z

Then go in Ripbot264/Tools rename the mp4box folder to mp4box_old or something, extract this file and rename its folder to mp4box.

It should now create over 4GB Mp4 files correctly.

If you haven't delete the temp files from your previous project, just open a command line and copy paste this line from your log:

and it should create the mp4 file just fine without re-encoding.

Great info! :thanks:

Hey quick question. After muxing a BD movie to mkv, then encode it to 18, it has a size of 6-12gig. If you take the file you have just encoded, and encode it to 18 again, will the file size be exacly the same? Or it will drop more down?

Lighto
6th March 2011, 04:32
@alphine_92
File size will probably drop along with the video quality.

Ajax_Undone
6th March 2011, 19:57
You might want to just stick with the default setting of 22 as there is no real notable differences other then the over abundantly large file size.

Plus you wont end up needing to re encode and damage video quality to gain a smaller file size.

I am having an issue with ripbot stopping when it gets to "Please wait... Gathering information" after demuxing. This issue began to occur after I updated from 1.16.3 to 1.16.4. It apears that there may have been some leftover data that is causing the issue. I have tried uninstalling all required software, updating all the software and reinstalling in the recommended order (i found this info from another thread on here). I've tried going back to 1.16.3 and it still gives me the same problem. I have found a workaround solution by moving the ripbot 1.16.4 folder to my D: drive. It works fine on my D: drive by not on C: (my OS drive). Do you have any ideas what could be causing the issue?

I've been using Ripbot to encode my Blu-rays for a long time. I am now using the latest version. I generally am very pleased with the results, except that I notice banding in backgrounds. It's certainly bearable, and is more noticeable some times than others. I capture using the default setting of 22 and setting denoise to film. I have noticed this across versions of Ripbot and from several video sources, monitor, HDTV, and projector using different computers and different software players. Is there something I can do that will reduce the banding? I imagine encoding without the denoise would help, but I like the clean look and better encoding compression that I get with it. Any help would be appreciated!

It sounds like it could be something mechanically at fault.
One drive vs another in this situation tells me that the software is working. the Drive on the other hand may be near failing. (Age of the drive doesn't matter).

I would clone the C: drive to a new hard drive and boot off the new drive to see if the problem continues.

If it is caused by the denoise filter then there is something wrong with the filter. Maybe downloading an updated version that has had this bug worked out or else stop using it.

I bought a copy of Dark City, which I'd like to re-encode for my HTPCs, but RipBot is not cropping it correctly. It's supposed to be 2.35:1, which should be 1920x816, but when I set it to that in RipBot, it crops off a good portion of the top and bottom. Is there anything I can look at to fix this? It plays fine in VLC and MPC. Thanks for any help.

Hi,

I have been using Ripbot for the last few days after thinking I had FINALLY found a solution (after using Vidcoder, Xvid4PSP top name a few of probably a dozen programs) I have been using the AVCHD setting choosing 1280X720 as the resolution & 640Kbps for 6 Channel Sound & CQ 18 for maximum quality. I have been getting fantastic results in both quality & file sizes...for example

A Bugs Life 2.2GB
Cats & Dogs 2.7GB
Zombieland 2.6GB
Wild Hogs 2.6GB

But now the problem I have is that for the following movies I am getting great quality but ridiculous file sizes

Black Death 9.6GB
Juno 10.2GB
Bend It Like Beckham 8.6GB

I have checked the output with mediainfo & they are definately 1280X720 & 640kbps like the rest but approx 2 times the file size. This is due to the video stream now becoming 10.1 mbps instead of the usual 3500 - 5000 I have been getting on the other films.

Can someone please point me in the right direction as to the best solution to this as even on my Quad Core it is taking 4 hours for each movie (the previous movies were taking about 2)

Many Thanks for those that take the time to read my post...

- hqdn3d() can be tweaked (no need to keep the strong defaults if you have near-clean anime already), and is just so fast compared to the others that I prefer it over, say, fft3dfilter.

I'm not denoising anime but would it be of use for me to lower the defaults so that the denoising would be a little more gentle? I should be able to do this pretty simply from the script that Ripbot produces. Are there any good setting suggestions... or should I try some to see what works?

I'm having a crazy issue with RipBot: None of the AVS scripts will run, whether in the application or running the CMD files in the temp folder.

I just reinstalled Windows 7 x64. I download RipBot 1.16.4 and dutifully installed all 4 required applications using the four links on the startup page. The problem is that none of the scripts do anything. At the video Properties screen, it cannot create a frame.bmp, when clicking OK on the screen (which runs getinfo.avs), nothing happens and RipBot just says "Gathering Information...". If I pull up some left over jobs from my old Windows drive, I get click Start but it just says Initializing and in task manager I see avs2yuv and pipebuf using almost no RAM and no CPU at all. I even left it like that for a full day just to make sure.

I've reinstalled ffdshow, the splitter, and AVISynth 2.5.8 ST a dozen times and nothing is working. I'm really frustrated because everything worked just fine on my old Windows 7 install and I still have some jobs waiting to be processed.

What's really odd is that the Preview Script works just fine and I can watch the video in MPC x64.

Any ideas what's going on?

Actually, that's not the case. The video was ripped on my old installation of Windows 7 and the encode started just fine on that system. I just canceled it in order to install Windows 7 on my new SSD.

The same problem also happens on 4 existing rips that I already converted on my old Windows 7 system.
