I have a small beef/suggestion that RipBot264 NEEDS... The Properties window is fantastic and has just about everything we need, however there is a small yet very important thing missing. And that is AddBorders(). As we all know Blu-Ray and AVCHD must be specifc sizes (eg 1920x1080, etc etc) and addborders is the easiest way to get a 1920x800 file to spec without any special work. The current way to do this in RipBot264 is with the resize pulldowns, but we don't want to resize... just add borders. So to do this we have to manually insert the AddBorders() to the bottom of the script to do what we want without resizing. I am sure there is a way for another pulldown option to allow us to add borders without manual insertion

Hi,

Does anyone on here encode their Blu-Rays to 720p?

I currently copy the m2ts movie file & drop it into Ripbot, I just would like some help with choosing the correct settings please?

Many Thanks

448 kbps is crap. at the very least I'd keep the cores 1536 DTS and 640 AC3
changing framerate is unnecessary and will only potentially cause problems


mbc0 keep in mind some blurays will not always have a single m2ts for the movie

448 kbps is crap. at the very least I'd keep the cores 1536 DTS and 640 AC3
changing framerate is unnecessary and will only potentially cause problems448kbps is hardly "crap", and it's virtually impossible to tell the difference between 640 and 448!

Still, if an audiotrack can be "cored" to 640 then that's typically what I'll do. If it's a 1536 DTS then I will convert to 448kbps DD. :p

Look at this article: (http://www.hemagazine.com/node/Dolby_TrueHD_DTS-MA_versus_Uncompressed_PCM?page=0%2C0)

The shocker came when we compared the lower 448 kbps Dolby Digital DVD bitrate to the original. There was an audible difference, but it was only ever-so-slightly noticeable (and this is with a high end audio system in an acoustically controlled environment that is so far beyond what typical home theater systems are capable of resolving).

pacaveli211

448 is still crap. an average trueHD track is 2500-3500kbps
ripbot has a 640kbps encode option too, you don't have to use 448

soneca
8th March 2011, 20:58
Of course they have that option with less compression will be the one I use!
Dolby Digital/448kbps never been bad, not even close ...
Forget the numbers a bit and listen more closely.

In the RipBot, there is no option for DUAL AUDIO...
That is very much asked by me and many people.

LigH
9th March 2011, 09:59
The limitation to 448 kbps will be related to the DVD era. DVD specs limited AC3 to 448 kbps even though AC3 alone (A-52a) would have supported up to 640 kbps. Unfortunately, AC3 decoder manufacturers made chips which also supported only up to 448 kbps, and so A/V receivers existed which were incompatible to e.g. AC3Filter/ffdshow on-the-fly recoding multi channel audio to AC3 with 640 kbps.

Modern Blu-ray Home Cinema sets should be compatible to 640 kbps AC3, though...

mbc0
9th March 2011, 10:35
Many Thanks For The Info Guys, This is pretty much what I have been doing and I have been using 640 on the AC3, I have had great results except I have hit a few 90 minute movies that came out close to the 10gb size!! for those I chose 2 pass 4000 kbps & got a 2.5-3gb file size & excellent results on the media center....I have already found a few of the split m2ts movies & used tsmuxer to make one big file....

Thanks Again

soneca
9th March 2011, 14:00
I have tested the DD 640kbps on some older receivers without problems.
Some of the first receivers with Dolby Digital decoder had a defect and can not accept this bitrate tracks, despite the limit of 640kbps always be part of the specifications Dolby Digital.

When doing an AVCHD in ripbot, does it put chapters in automatically, or is the an option somewhere so you can do them yourself?

I'm using RipBot264 1.16.4

I encoded a few short videos from m2ts to mp4, then exited. I decided to re-encode with a few different settings, but I can't Edit the jobs in the queue.

I get an error message:
Cannot Open file "C:\Apps(x86)\RibBot264\Tools\MediaInfo\.bmp"

Which, of course, is an invalid file name.

Any ideas?

Edit:
I re-created the jobs because I remember the settings. But something went wrong with RipBot anyway.

do a manual crop...

Thanks Paca. I tried the manual crop. The picture seems OK, but I now get black bars at the top and bottom of the picture, which I never had before. It makes me think the picture is 1920x816, but includes the black bars. If I crop automatically, it cuts off the picture. I've done a number of movies this way and never had this problem before. I don't understand what's going on here. Thanks for any help.

1. adding a pause button to the gui

2. when adding a new file remember the audio normalize as off

3. make the gui maximizable

specifically I want HD demux and copy
Dual audio wouldn't be useful to me, but by no means would it be a bad thing to have

zazon - after you set the manual crop did you set the options for the crop?
if it is in fact a 2.35:1 movie you should be cropping about 132px off the top and bottom
and as soneca said....you'll want to check (preview script) to make sure it all looks ok

When English is the original audio, for those who master it does not matter one second audio.
But for users from other countries, the second audio is necessary.

Just out of curiosity, are you planning on making ripbot work with an x64 version of ffdshow? I installed rev3771 x64 (SVN builds by clsid) and Ripbot still wouldn't run until I installed rev3500+ with a 32 bit build. Let me know asap! Love your work and would love to donate money to keep you going at it!

Uninstall everything again, restart the System and use the basic cleaning of the programs below, in the order.
Uninstall... AviSynth, Haali Splitter and ffdshow.
Following the steps below you can return to install everything again.

First of all, let's eliminate some potential conflicts. Follow the steps...
It is essential and necessary that you use the two clean programs below.
MV RegClean 6.0 is an excellent cleaner for Windows, it follows an old tool from Microsoft. Very light and efficient.
Both are 100% Free, while the MV RegClean has a lot of advertisements and is maintained by donations. Not Spam.
The advertisements are extracted when registered through a donation negligible.
Even with the advertisements he usually works. MV RegClean surpasses 11 million downloads.

1º) MV RegClean 6.0 (Opt for version 6, 741KB, Portuguese language): http://www.velasco.com.br/velasco/html/produto.php?id=1

korn baby,

Until the moment that you quote the RipBot worked well ...
After that ... you remember the last program you installed on your PC?
Did you lose a lot if you use System Restore?
You think you'll miss something? What would you have installed after the effective functioning of RipBot?
It may be some extra program conflicted with the tools RipBot. We would have to figure out which.
I believe that you have already tried deleting and downloading again RipBot264 v1.16.4?

Log into "Windows Explorer" and type: Control Panel\All Items Control Panel\Recovery --> In... Open System Restore
Or "Start" -> and type ... rstrui.exe --> Enter
See first if this Will not delete anything important ... Make a backup first.

I would not be without using RipBot264...
Think ... no problem unsolved.

great program Atak. just going to add a few suggestions.

1. adding a pause button to the gui

2. when adding a new file remember the audio normalize as off

3. make the gui maximizable

+1 for the pause!! My compressions take around 6 hours each, and if I don't time it right, then the cpu is unusable for that day or I have to cancel it and start it all over again.

Another good idea, if it is even possible, is the option to put your computer to sleep after the compression is done. I always start a compression before I go to bed. It'd be nice if it would go to sleep when the compression is done.

However, I haven't done any testing to see if the cpu will just go to sleep when it is done on it's own or not.

silly question

Does that shutdown ripbot, or does it shutdown my computer? I access it remotely often throughout the day while at work, so I need the ability to wake it up, but I can't power it up when it is off I don't believe.

And, I will just test this myself sometime this week, just wondering :)

If you have a problem to open a MKV or MP4 (x264/H.264) or not ...
get used to do the Demux by tsMuxeR (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/tsMuxeR) and work with video files and separate audio (.264 + AC3 or DTS).
This procedure also helps to improve quality somewhat, without increasing the size of the file.

I've searched for help without any luck (google points me to a result here but the page tells me to bug off lol, and the form search doesn't take me to the page with the result on it just the this thread).

I've been using RipBot for a long time now, though recently I went from Win7 to Win7 64bit and downloaded the current version of RipBot, but now I'm getting an error and it doesn't work properly anymore, the error says, Failed to get data for 'isWhitelist' and nothing else, after that it opens but doesn't work correctly. Opening a MKV causes RipBot to sit there just saying Gathering information.... but nothing happens. Clicking abort gives me the error "External Exception C000071C", from then on it won't even exit giving that error again and the process has to be ended.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

edit..
If anyone is kind enough to reply with help, please add my name to the post so I can search for it, this thread is huge and it otherwise might be hard to find help, or PM me to let me know if you would, thanks again.

I have Windows 7 64bit and everything works perfectly for me... Blu-ray to MKV or MP4, MKV to MP4...
provided they contain audio AC3 or DTS.
I noticed now that I can not open the MKV with AAC in the RipBot.

Also I do not usually work from AAC.
The important thing for me is that the RipBot convert an AC3 or DTS to AAC, and he does it with great quality.


P.S.

Resolved: I did a mux with a MKVmerge to MP4 video with AAC audio and it worked well in RipBot.

Thanks alot, I thought I had a new version but was obviously behind. On a side note it wouldn't work after installing Java x64, only once I installed the 32 bit also.

Anyway I'm happy again and have a bunch of encoding to catch up on, thanks again.

Haali Matroska Splitter from 03/03/2011

klopsknoedel,

You tried to do a "Demux" with tsMuxeR and leave only the video and audio stream that interests you.
I think you gave a "knot" in eac3to, It has a lot of audio on your MKV or Blu-ray. rs rs rs
Enjoy you're in tsMuxer and cut only two minutes to test.
Try again, now that way.

klopsknoedel
25th March 2011, 14:32
That's what i've did.
In RipBot i've selected these streams:
Video: h264/AVC (left eye), 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
Audio: DTS Hi-Res, German, 5.1 channels, 24 bits, 2046kbps, 48kHz
(core: DTS, 5.1 channels, 24 bits, 1509kbps, 48kHz)
Subtitles: Subtitle (PGS), German

So these streams will be extracted.

I've seen that only one of my Blu-Ray-Discs produces this error.
It's the "Residen Evil: Afterlife" Blu-Ray. I haven't bought the 3D - Version, just the standard
one!! But i can see that there are 2 Video-Streams (left eye / right eye).
Is it possible that RipBot (eac3to / tsMuxeR) can't handle that?

UPDATE
Demux the whole movie with tsMuxer WITHOUT using RipBot worked perfectly. Seems that's a RipBot - Problem.

jandor
25th March 2011, 15:09
klopsknoedel,

Try to make a first Mux with this new version of MKVmerge (mmg) (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/MKVtoolnix), and then the Demux with tsMuxeR if you want.
The MKVmerge should show another video track.

Often, the files originated MKVmerge can not run in tsMuxeR.

In this case you would first...
1) MVmerge Mux
2) Mux to MKV in AVI-Mux GUI
3) tsMuxeR Demux.

After MKVmerge can also send direct to RipBot.

P. S.
Oops! Your file is Blu-ray.

klopsknoedel
25th March 2011, 15:34
It's a little bit more complicated.
On the Blu-Ray RipBot recognizes the .mpls - file which contains the chapters, .m2ts - files and anything else.
So RipBot loads these 2 files:
00000.m2ts -> 15,3 GB; contains 1 video-stream (right-eye); all 3 audio-streams; 1 PGS-Stream
00013.m2ts -> 24 KB; contains 1 video-stream (left-eye); 0 audio-streams; 0 PGS

The strange thing is that the 00013.m2ts is far to small to have the whole left-eye-video-stream included. So it seems that this m2ts is used as a placeholder for the 3D - BluRay or something similar.
Because of the missing stream. RipBot (eac3to) crashes.

I've did the follow workaround:

1. added the 00000.m2ts to tsMuxer
2. deselected the streams i don't need
3. muxed the remaining streams into a new .m2ts - File
4. loaded that new file with ripbot and everything works fine

So it seems that on the "Resident Evil: Afterlife" - BluRay (Standard-Version) are to video-streams. A real video-stream which is located in the 00000.m2ts file and a DUMMY-video-stream in the 00013.m2ts for the 3D - Version.

I think that on the 3D-Version of that BluRay the 00013.m2ts contains a real stream.
So RipBot should check if a .m2ts is big enough to contain a Full-HD, 90min Video-Stream. IF NOT this stream shouldn't be selectable.


UPDATE
I've added the log-files

jandor
25th March 2011, 15:49
klopsknoedel,

If the file is an original Blu-ray ...
The last alternative would be if you use DVDFab or BD Rebuilder to separate only the main video and audio. And subtitles, if you prefer.
I guess you can not make the decrypter in BD Rebuilder, DVDFab I know that does this.

klopsknoedel
25th March 2011, 15:52
yes it's an original bought blu-ray.

i would try this. thanks for your help.

Would be great if Atak could give a statement

UPDATE
It doesn't matter which stream (left-eye/right-eye) i select, RipBot (eac3to) crashes.
My guess: RipBot things that the whole audio-stream is included in both files, the 00000.m2ts and 00013.m2ts. But it's not so RipBot says that the audio-stream is corrupt which is not!

So for now I go with the workaround to demux the 00000.m2ts externaly in tsmuxer and load the demuxed streams into RipBot. That works.

klopsknoedel
25th March 2011, 16:56
I know but this bluray is NO 3D-BluRay at all.
It's just authored as one.
The "Resident Evil: Afterlife" was released in 2 Versions.
Standard-Version
3D-Version
I bought the standard-Version which got authored as a 3D-BluRay. So this version also contains the SSIF-Folder with it's files. But the 00013.m2ts - files, which contains the video-stream for the other eye only provides a dummy-stream.

Is it the same or is there another flag to use to get Interlaced?

Hi guys, I'm having the same problem as GSingh but I didn't see a response solution. Diff is my OS is Vista 32 bit. I've never had this issue before and have used RB for many yrs (but never denoise feature). The only change is that I updated Ribot to latest version. I had an old version (pre-divx output). For me the result was an 1.91GB AVCHD with no actual video when played, although media info said "BDAV: 1.91GB 2hr 34mins Video: 161 kbs avc" If I don't mess with the denoise option it works fine. FYI, I did read the 1st post about having directX 9.0c, I currently have ver 10. Surely you don't mean downgrade to version 9, right? I have old vid card Nvidia GeForce 7800 GTX with drivers dated from 07/10/2010.

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

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

Any solution?


Also, I saw someone else post another issue that I had as well regarding when adding subtitles sometimes it would freeze (unabe to quit, "OK" button was greyed/unable to close and therefore unable to close the add subtitle dialog window). I would have to quit program via task manager then restart windows and then it would the add subtitles function would work again (but it would eventually give me the same error again and would have to reboot, again).

Any solutions or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks! :thanks:

I'll do it.
Then I return here to say if it worked.
Actually, this is a problem of another person.

Thank you.

P.S.
The installation of the DirectX did not solve. It needed to exchange the graphic card.

HOW DO I CROP ????

PLS , A LITTLE HELP !!!!!

It seems that automatic crop do not work :(

What resolution and aspect ratio of your original video?
You want to resize the resolution to which format?
I have to leave now, maybe I'm not here to answer it.


Atak,

I need to convert a DVD 720 x 480 - Aspect Ratio 4:3 without distortion (perfectly)...
Still missing in RipBot an automatic option to convert 4:3 to 16:9. Thus there would be no need for "Manually" CROP, just resizing.
No need to resize to 720 x 540 and then cut Top=70 + Bottom=70. That would be correct, but...

At the moment I need to simulate a blu-ray using tsMuxeR, and the BD Rebuilder to convert 4:3 --> 16:9
Need to enter Setup BDRebuilder and adjust some settings. The whole process is very fast.
Then simply use the RipBot and apply the Automatically CROP --> Size --> Custom [x.xx:1] --> 720 x 400 or 720 x 406
The Aspect Ratio shown by RipBot remains 1.33:1. Do not worry.
Adding all these tasks are generated approximately 25GB of temp files (garbage).

My method crazy to work in RipBot, but it works.
1) DVDFab - DVD Decrypter (DVD-9 no compression)
2) Create a folder to save a separate copy of the muxing tsMuxeR. This folder should be empty.
3) tsMuxeR - "Add " VTS_01_1 and "Join" the other... VTS_01_2, VTS_01_3... --> muxing "Blu-ray disc"
4) BD Rebuilder - Create the files folder Blu-ray
5) RipBot - Add...
6) Open the folder generated by BD Rebuilder --> WORKFILES folder --> VID_00000 --> AUD_00000_4352
In RipBot --> Use Level: (High 3.0 or 3.1) Custom.

You can not delete anything without first finishing the encode by RipBot.

Presets BD Rebuilder:
Settings --> Output Options --> Select Target Size BD-9 (DVD-9)
Settings --> Encoder Settings --> Disable Automatic Quality Settings
Settings --> Encoder Settings --> Hight Quality (Deafault)
Settings --> Setup --> Select in...

Video Encoding Options:
- Use DEINTERLACER on interlaced sources
- Convert 4:3 to 16:9 (w/clipping)

Audio Encoding Options:
- Use 448 Kbs for AC3 encoding

General Encoding Options:
- Movie Only Playback Loop
- IVTC sources with 3.2 pulldown


Other...

Original DVD 720 x 480 - Aspect Ratio 16:9
Automatically CROP --> Size --> Custom 1,78:1 --> 720 x 406

Original RIP 640 x 480 - Aspect Ratio 4:3
Manually CROP --> Top=60 and Bottom=60 --> Size --> Custom 1,78:1 --> 640 x 360
For Variable (VBR) audio, use "Copy stream". This prevents a delay.

Original Rip 640 x 464 - Aspect Ratio 1,379
Manually CROP --> Top=52 and Bottom=52 --> Size --> Custom 1,78:1 --> 640 x 360
For Variable (VBR) audio, use "Copy stream". This prevents a delay.

I hope I have been clear in my explanation.

Great, pacaveli211!
The RipBot does not resize correctly from 4:3 to 16:9, the CROP does not solve one pass.
I need to resize to 720 x 540 first, then return and reencoding.
That's why I have to use extra tools, so I do not need two encodings.
Using the BD Rebuilder before taking to the RipBot, this process is straightforward.
I can not just cut Top=40 + Bottom=40, because a 4:3 aspect ratio is not correct.
If it was 720 x 480 Aspect Ratio 16:9, I resize to 720 x 400 direct, without cuts.

pacaveli211,
From the BDRip and BRRip I always use the demux tsMuxeR.
From the original DVD 720 x 480 Aspect Ratio 16:9, always choose the latter VOB.

Before... Aspect Ratio 4:3
http://img27.imageshack.us/img27/4463/www1i.jpg

After... Aspect Ratio 16:9 - Perfect
Originated from BD Rebuilder (4:3 to 16:9) for RipBot --> Automatically CROP --> Size --> Custom x,xx:1 --> 720 x 400
http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/9089/www2a.jpg

The tsMuxeR has this function but does not work for RipBot.
http://img860.imageshack.us/img860/7500/semttulo1111111.jpg

It changes the aspect ratio to 1.78:1, but when you resize to 720 x 406 at the end he presents as shown below.
Originated from tsMuxeR (4:3 to 16:9) for RipBot --> Automatically CROP --> Size --> Custom 1,78:1 --> 720 x 406
Besides the aspect ratio incorrect, still caused a delay with no possibility of adjustment.
http://img806.imageshack.us/img806/1042/www3.jpg

Meanwhile, I am going to keep my method crazy, which always worked well.
I always have some left over 30GB for the whole process ... :):)
Until someone show me another simpler solution, which can operate in RipBot.
I always prefer to convert my old DVDs or any video using the RipBot.
This was the only way found. I'll never give up the RipBot.

pacaveli211
31st March 2011, 02:42
yeah I still don't understand why you're going through all that
why not just make a dvd copy?
it's not like you're getting better quality.
and I 100% disagree with cropping out parts of the video...that's no good
bluray players will play 4:3 AR material...even if you insist on burning a BD9 / BD5 or whatever you're doing
just encode to 960x720 or 1440x1080

jandor
31st March 2011, 04:36
pacaveli211
It's just a suggestion, among other possible variations.
I also prefer the original aspect ratio.

Thanks!

pacaveli211
31st March 2011, 05:03
the one you showed as incorrect you chose auto crop...auto crop isn't going to crop the movie
it cropped the pillar bars out like it should've and then resized it to 16:9 as specified
this could be played and then adjusted via your tv settings back to 4:3 if wanted
or you could change to a manual crop and add appropriate cropping to the top and bottom to achieve a 'zoom' effect to avoid the stretching
however....as I was saying, this will result in loss of some of the video

jandor
31st March 2011, 13:24
Yes, I know. pacaveli211
I just tried to copy the method of BD Rebuilder.
Nor is it possible to do what you say ... is not so simple.
The cut of a video 720x480 AR 4:3 when you force to AR 16:9 will always be greater.
In this particular case, the BD Rebuilder does all this automatically: It computes, resize and crop.
This issue of CROP is the most tedious in the coding.

The RipBot is very good because it automatically recognizes the Aspect Ratio and gives you the best resolution. Only in this case it does not.

So, is there a easy to disable MKV header compression in the ripbot264 interface? I think it involves

I have been using ripbot for a while to do both video and audio with no issues. But lately I've been using eac3to to get dtsma, truehd audio etc, and ripbot for just the video. Then use mkvmerge. But I've noticed on all of the videos there is the slightest of sync problems. The audio is always slightly ahead of the video. Again it's not way off, but when comparing to the original blu-ray I can see the difference. I know I can add delay in mkvmerge but that's hit or miss. I am trying the same video in handbrake and will see if I have the same issues. Are there any suggestions on what else to try? Thanks for the help.

pacaveli211
1st April 2011, 16:26
pull the playlist from the original bluray into tsmuxer and look at the audio track
does it have delay on the original disc itself?
are you messing with the framerate at all? perhaps changing 24fps to 23.976fps

rantonio
1st April 2011, 16:42
tsmuxer nor eac3to show any delay (eac3to normally fixes this). Also I dont change much of anything in ripbot. Just doing a 2 pass to mkv. I looked back at the job and the framerate was greyed out 23.976, but I've never changed it (and can't seem to).

pacaveli211
1st April 2011, 17:22
yeah in order to change the framerate you would have to go into properties for the vid stream

I'd verify the source is at 23.976 as well
eac3to should tell you this I believe, TSmuxer will also

I'm new to creating my own videos. My only need is, a few times a year, I have some a dvd's vob's, but there's no avi or mkv version available, so I have to create my own. I just used RipBot to create mkv's out of a DVD's vob's, then used mkvmerge to put them together. The result is 734MB, but the original vob's sum to 4.3GB. The small mkv looks to be the same quality as the vob's. Is mkv always this good? Is there something I'm not understanding here about losing/preserving quality?

there are a lot of factors to consider here
you are probably dropping multiple audio / subtitle tracks (maybe even a secondary video track)
so that's going to drop the size down.
you're probably encoding the movie only, where as the original dvd may have a bunch of extras and such
if you're encoding animated stuff it can be compressed A LOT without losing any noticeable quality

I don't know what settings you're using for resolution or quality or audio. these all impact filesize as well

just putting something in an MKV container doesn't really give you a substantial reduction in filesize. the encoding is what's dropping the filesize. h264 is better than MPEG2 though.

personally I'd suggest that you set your CQ value lower (lower CQ # = higher quality)
or if you really want lossless...just remux the vobs to mkv without doing any encoding

@pacaveli211:

Thanks for your guidance. But I've already struggled with YAMB. I have YAMB 2.0 installed, it appears very unstable in my system.

Yeah, I've found the File Tagger tool earlier also, but it always fails to edit tags showing an error : "Access violation at address 00594AE2 in module 'Yamb.exe'. Read of address 00000030." Don't know what that means. Seems like it is encountering with some miscommunication related to system memory allocation. Even if it can edit the tag once in a blue moon; there are multiple places to include images: one is the left side of the main pane of tagger and other under 'more' where you can add multiple graphics to mp4 metadata. None worked for me.

If I encode a video using RipBot and include poster through it; Windows shows the poster included at the thumbnail of encoded mp4 instead of showing first (or sequel) preview frame. YAMB muxed files don't act that way even after successfully including the graphic in metadata.

Since RipBot itself can do the magic, can anybody tell me what is the trick?

ripbot does it during the mux with mp4box
for example:

check your job<number>_MuxFiles.cmd

Should I make additional settings comparing with settings for 720p ???

Can someone explain me what's happened ???
Could be a player mistake ??? I don't think so , because the ORIGINAL BD plays very well...

I saw that within deinterlace section there are 4 options..Should I use one of them depending on certain parameters of the original movie ???

The reason I asked is because there are now 2 4.1 profiles (One is progressive which you would use for 1080p, and one is interlaced which you would use for 1080i). Wasn't sure which profile you used (the new profiles exist with the latest build Atak just released)

I see , NO , I'm used progressive 4.1 profile for 1080p.
The new one I never used because I must test it first....
well , now can you help me to solve the mystery ???

Not sure TBH. So far with the latest RipBot I have only tested the 4.1 Interlaced profile, haven't tested the Progressive profile

I don't think this is a proper way but it is the only one that works.
Maybe I didn't found a proper version for these two softs ( you can help me with a link !!! )

Can you have another solution to solve this issue ?

PS : I must tell you that I'm using these settings for MPCHomecinema because I also have a CUDA device ( http://imouto.my/watching-h264-video...itecture-cuda/ ) and this is the only one I found as a tutorial for my settings.. I'm obsessed with this , especially since Atak_Snajpera told someone that he uses from the beginning win7 x64 for Ripbot and also ffdshow, but I did not understand which version of it :hmmm:

Thanks for any help , including Atak's ;-) !!!

I also use Windows 7 64 bit long ago and never used the MPC-HC 64 bit version, it was never mandatory.

For I know the Atak always uses the latest available revision of ffdshow 32 bit.

What is the old Video Profile "[HIGH 4.0] HD . Bluray . Consoles" considered to be?
Is it now what is called [HIGH 4.0] HD . Interlaced ?
Or is it now what is now called [HIGH 4.0] HD . Progressive ?
Thank you in Advance.

[HIGH 4.0] HD . Progressive

OK, this may sound like a simple question, but now I'm confused with these new 4.0 profiles. I don't encode HD blu rays, but instead the good old fashioned standard def DVD. In the past, I've always used High 4.0 Profile and had to check each video to see if there was interlacing and then make the appropriate adjustments (inverse telecine, restore 23.976 fps, etc). I've searched all over the internet (including this 10-mile long thread) for an answer to know prevail, so I need to ask after all these years. What profile should I actually be using for standard def DVD's? Should I be using Main 3.0 Profile? I always thought the profile was based on what type of player you'd be using and its capabilities to decode the video (I actually use a WDTV to play my MKV files), not the source video itself (i.e. 1080i, 1080p, 720p, 480p, 480i). But now these new 4.0 profiles (progressive / interlaced) lead to me to believe the profile choice should be based on the video source. I would appreciate any clarity on what the ideal profile should be for 480p/i standard def DVDs. Thanks.

Read: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.264#Levels

Based on the tables on this site, does it mean there is no benefit encoding standard def DVDs (mostly 720x480) using Level 4.0 if there's no upsampling (or whatever it's called) to a higher resolution (720p/1080p)? I don't understand most of the stuff on that wiki page (but I'm slowly learning). However, the table leads me to believe if I'm encoding 480p source material, then I should be using Level 3.0 (which is the Main profile in Ripbot's settings). Yet, something tells me that's not right either.

Is there not a simple answer to my question? What is the appropriate profile for standard def DVDs?

q: What does 4.1 profile do over 4.0 and would 4.1 be better for working with hd dvd/blu ray discs?
A: According to wiki maximum bitrate in 4.0 high profile is limited to 25mbps. 4.1 is limited to 62.5mbps. That's all!

That's what I always thought.

If that is the case, then what is the purpose of the two new profiles in v1.16.5? Are [High 4.0] HD, Interlaced and [High 4.0] HD, Progressive output specific? To me it sounds like these two new profiles are input specific based on the source of the HD material. Hence my confusion.

http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1487587&postcount=9330

OK, so let me get this straight. All of the profiles up until this latest release were designed with the "end results" in mind based on decoder support (Ipod/Ipad/AppleTV/Consoles/HD Players/etc). But these new HD profiles are designed based on the "beginning source" in mind (interlaced/progressive HD sources). That's going to confuse a lot of newbies like me. I don't see the need for this interlaced profile if the setting already exists in the video property page under deinterlace options where one can activate tff or inverse telecine if you have an interlaced source. What happens if you activate the switch in the video properties settings AND choose the HD Interlace profile? Do they cancel each other out?

And shouldn't inverse telecine be used more frequently for interlaced films instead of TFF? Don't most interlaced films use 2:3 pulldown? I always thought inverse telecine and restore 23.9 fps (decimate option turns on by default when inverse telecine is selected) should be used when interlaced sourced film was detected with a 2:3 pulldown pattern, and that TFF should be used for other interlaced sources with no pattern, like TV shows and other higher fps source material.

Obviously I need help. My questions have expanded beyond "what profile should I use for SD DVDs", which by the way still hasn't been answered.

pacaveli211
6th April 2011, 23:51
I didn't really read all you said there
but the interlaced profile is to OUTPUT interlaced video ( that's silly...why would anyone do that, right? seems there's a need for it in for certain things =P )
and the progressive one is the same as the previous 4.0...it's just called progressive now to better differentiate between it and the interlaced one

@ Atak:

I’ve been using RipBot for the last few days and honestly I’m gonna started loving it. But there are lack of options which lead me to use other tools. There are some specific requirements which RipBot obviously can (as it is powered by those tools only), but doesn’t due to lack of options. Please consider the followings in your future release so that we; the RipBot lovers can stick on a single great application.

• Include option ‘As-is’. Sometimes it is required to re-encode the audio stream only leaving the video stream intact or vice versa or editing the individual streams.
• ‘Append’ option to include for joining multiple files (supported by ‘mkvMerge’).
• Mux-Unmux options to include (supported by ‘mp4box’).
• Trimming the part of the video (if possible: like removing the end credits).
• More file support required (like ‘.dat’, ‘m4v’, raw audio, ‘aac’, ‘ac3’ etc).
• Tagging: some options are there but not full-fledged like mp4box.
• What is the use of ‘Queue’ button? Include it in ‘Encoding Settings’ dialogue as ‘Add to Queue’.
• ‘?’ button should not redirect to the forum. Prepare a real good help guideline for the morons like what is ‘Deinterlace’ or ‘Decimate’ and what exactly they are meant for – SERIOUSLY!!!
• Preview doesn’t show the exact output quality (like ‘HandBrake’) using the ‘Preview Script’ option.
• Extraction of the contents besides de-mux (like poster) from existing file.
• Up-Down buttons are buggy and malfunctions often.
• Temp folder should be user specific.

It may be lengthy but I think; as a developer you should listen to the user requirements.

You do realize that Atak puts hard work into Ripbot for the low low price of... free (or donations). As for yelling out "SERIOUSLY", I believe that most of us are capable of googling Deinterlace or Decimate instead of demanding that Atak create documentation for those that are unable to google.

Temp folder could possibly be made user specific if you use %USERNAME% or %USERPROFILE% or for Windows Vista or 7 - %HOMEPATH% (a quick google got me the exact variable name) in the config file

Thanks Atak for the continued hard work on this great product! :thanks:

I have done a few conversions already and most seem to workfine, where I use profile 4. Now there are a few that won't play on the Xbox and it generates either one or another error code. I have looked at these and beleive it is an audio problem. I have tried different audio conversion settings but it dosen't seem to help.

If anyone has any settings that work 100% of the time it would be a great help.

I can encode (to 1080p BD25) in about 5-6 hours with the AMD 1090t
this is probably about the longest encode you can do. as you wouldn't be encoding for BD50 and anything else (1080p BD9/DVD9 and 720p) would be faster
the 2500 and 2600 intels should do them even faster than the AMD

here's an article I found before:

HI Atak !!

Ripbot setted as default is perfect for 720p encodes....
But for 1080p ???
Should I do some supplementary settings ,should I change some settings ???
What do you think about these parameters used for 1080p encodes ???

ref=4 for 1920x1080
deblock=-3:-3 for better grain and detail retention
subme=9 this is a MINIMUM for keeping good quality
me_range=32 but 16 isn't that bad
bframes=6 at least 5 for good compressibility
b_pyramid=2 turning on an advanced algorithm of compression
aq=1:0.80 lower adaptive quantizers for much better grain and detail retention

and of course : trellis = 2.....

Well if I'm doing such changes do I need another changes I missed here ????
Or the default settings are enough for 1080p encodes , too ???

Thanks for help !!!

you'll want DDR3 (if there's anything else that even shows up)
I'd try to get one with lots of sata ports
USB 3.0
Sata III
and at least 2 PCIe 2.0 x16
is there some reason you wanted the 960 instead of one of the sandy bridge (2500k or 2600k ones?

Just wanted to know if anyone has encountered this before....
If I load the .vob to RipBot and let it index using dgindex, the length of the video is not accurate.(longer by 7 seconds)
The only way I could get the correct video length was to use MakeMKV on the DVD first then open the file with RipBot.
Another way will be to use HandBrake to open the DVD .vob folder.

Is this a dgindex issue or am I doing it wrong?

Not really, I was just going by prices on pricewatch, the i960 is more expensive than the 2600k so I thought it was better, it's not?

it doesn't actually list a 960...but I'm assuming it should be between the 950 and 975

from my understanding the K models are unlocked and therefore OC-able. so make sure you grab a 'k' one

I am sure all the .vob has been included.
I made a mistake in my previous post, only tools such as Hybrid and HandBrake were able to get the correct video length.

Cut out CloneDVD2 and just select a vob in the dvd that is one of a chain of vobs

http://img689.imageshack.us/img689/4558/dvdstruct.jpg (http://img689.imageshack.us/i/dvdstruct.jpg/)

that are ~1gb in size. ripbot264 will index it and then all you need to do is put your setting in and click encode and your done.
Or you can with anydvd running copy the Video_TS folder from the dvd to your hard drive and follow the steps above. ^

is the difference because after the main movie plays a 4 second something is referenced?
like a 'Rated PG13' screen or something?
this might be something that's not in the movie vobs themselves but somehow referenced in the index file so it plays immediately after the movie

@ Lighto:

Your mistake is probably to copy the VOBs as they are. VOBs may contain several logical units called "Program Chains" (PGCs) – like an FBI warning or a studio trailer in front of the main movie; but DGMPGDec can only handle one PGC (and only one video angle). You need to extract the main movie PGC out of the VOBs. DVD rippers called this the "Movie mode" or the "IFO mode". If you already copied all files to your harddisk (including IFOs), you may as well use PGCDemux to extract the main movie PGC afterwards.

Concatenating VOB segments is certainly not necessary. Those tools which can handle VOBs as input also know that they have to be handled contiguously. And those who prefer elemental streams can get them concatenated after demultiplexing (a.k.a. "Stream processing" in the older DVD rippers).

Thanks for the tip, didn't know it could be done this way.:thanks:

Did what you said using the PgcDemux method but the demuxed .wav is still 1:14:41, the demuxed .m2v is 00:57:24.

The encode will be 1:14:41 due to the audio but this causes the chapters to not be accurate as it is meant for 1:14:37.

Don't trust the time values guessed by tools which just look into the MPEG header, read the maximum bitrate the MPEG encoder was set to, and divide that with the filesize to roughly guess a playing time. The bitrate of the *.m2v is variable. To measure its playing time exactly, one has to count the frames in each GOP, which hardly any program does (because it takes too much time).

Compare with the nonsense "26 hours" reported for VOB 3 and 4.

What is the time after indexing the *.m2v with DGIndex.exe and loading the AviSynth script into VirtualDub? This script should know the frame count from the *.d2v index file and the frame rate.

Just a suggestion...
Would it be possible to include the PgcDemux of 288KB in the tools of the RipBot?
The PgcDemux really stabilizes, while joining the VOB files, ending any asynchrony. He works from the IFO file.
He does the same thing as DVD Shrink > Re-author, which is also very good. Cited by soneca.

Thank you all for your help, I decided to rip the DVD using a "workaround".

The problem is that the indexed video and output is longer than what is should be.
Therefore the chapters extracted from the .IFO file are not working well on the encoded video.

Fortunately, the chapter file generated by MakeMKV sort of account for the change in video length and eliminates the problem of "inaccurate" chapters.

Therefore I just encode the DVD and mux in the chapter generated by MakeMKV.

Speaking of which, MakeMKV is like the only tool I found that could fix my "video length/chapter" problem and my wrong subtitle colour problem (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1490641#post1490641).

Show me difference between mp4 and m4v! SERIOUSLY!!!

As far I know m4v is the iPod / iTunes friendly version of mp4.

There is no difference between those two filetypes while you play them in computer; even you can simply change the extension from m4v to mp4, it still works fine. But there are differences when you play an mp4 in an iPod-5G : Video stops in between, Audio-video sync issues arrives ...

Test it, take an iPod-5G compatible m4v, demux apart the audio and video and re-mux : you can't adjust sync. if it matchs at beginning, doesn't match at the end. I've generated two files from the same source : an .mp4 and an iPod-5G compatible .m4v and studied the demuxed aac-s in an audio grapher. The difference what I found hardly is aac from m4v is sometimes silent part removed, may be it syncs with video using some time tagging technique during playback, I'm not sure.

Thats why there are special options in 'HandBrake':

I've tried with J River Media Center. Its tagging feature is good.

That's why YAMB didn't show it.

I think mp4box itself is a tagger and YAMB (Yet Another MP4Box Graphical Interface for Windows Users.) is a GUI of it powered by addl. tools (like mkvextract, eac3to etc.)

This is the file encoded with poster using Ripbot, Windows showing the thumbnail:

http://img1.imagehousing.com/37/8f827a1442921f50e4f24baff119591d.jpg (http://www.imagehousing.com/)

When I open it using YAMB 'File Tagger'(setting mp4box as a tagger), the poster is not shown.

http://img1.imagehousing.com/5/7efc46660550a3a9016f56fc409e1809.jpg (http://www.imagehousing.com/)

I go for advanced tagging of file properties clicking 'More' button; the image is still absent under 'artwork' tab.

http://img1.imagehousing.com/97/6236fb315881c4dc0d5d55edf7b784eb.jpg (http://www.imagehousing.com/)

Even if I set a picture by the 'Add' button (indicated above) to a fresh mp4 and save the tag; the poster is not displayed in Windows thumbnail (as the first image).

I'm confused between these three kinds of artworks handled by mp4box:
1. One added by RipBot during encoding (or simply calling mp4box from commandline : "<path>\mp4box.exe" -tmp "<path>\temp" -add "<path>\video.mp4" -itags cover="<path>\poster.jpg" -new "<path>\New_video.mp4" : thanx to 'pacaveli211').
2. The picture shown at the left side of file tagger of YAMB.
3. The pictures under "artworks" (supports multiple pictures) tab of properties box of YAMB.

Atak, a feature request: in the audio conversion options for .mkv, can you provide an option for converting DTS 1.5mbps streams to legacy DTS 754kbps? That cuts the file size by half--1.5mbps stream can sometimes seem unnecessary for some soundtracks--while still keeping a DTS track. 640kbps ac3 is a perfectly good alternative, but 754kbps DTS would also be a nice option to have, and with EAC3 already in the tools perhaps this, I hope, wouldn't be too difficult to implement.

Atak_Snajpera
20th April 2011, 19:48
This does not make sense because DTS 768 kbps would sound worse than AC3 448 kbps. According to tests DTS 1,5Mbps sounds as good as AC3 640kbps if encoded from lossless format. Also don't forget that re-encoding lossy format to another lossy will cause futher degradation in quality.

yeah...if you're lookin to save space by doing something with a dts 1.5mbps track...you should encode to AC3 640. DTS 768 would be dumb

How can I change some other settings like : Adaptive Quantizers strength , M.E. Range , M.E. Algorithm , Psy-RD strength , a.s.o. ????

How can I attach a .sup file ( after demuxing it , of course) to a movie , without re-encoding ???

I forgot to select it in the begining :(

Hope this time will answer somebody who REALLY knows the true answers !!! ;-)

In command line box below in encoder settings GUI.

From input add mp4 add audio add subtitles
and mux

@hopstiii

Thanks but here we're talking about Ripbot and its specific settings :(

Following your advice I must give up to Ripbot and use classical MeGui...I know very well to use MeGui and do settings there..

Here is the issue ,on Ripbot ;-)

Thank you for RipBot264!
Discovered two errors in RipBot264.
1. Not correct expose aspect ratio (720x480-704x480)
Source 720x480.avs (1.5 = 15:10) -> 720x480 (1.77 = 16:9) :(
Source 712x480.avs (1.5 = 15:10) -> 712x480 (1.5 = 15:10) OK! :)
Source 704x480.avs (1.5 = 15:10) -> 704x480 (1.77 = 16:9) :(

2. Not correct determine the fps H264 in avi.
If the source x264.avi (x264 23.976fps), RipBot264 defines 25fps. :(
If the source Xvid.avi (Xvid 23.976fps), RipBot264 determine correctly 23.976fps. OK! :)
Sorry for my English (Google Translate)

No need,
they are 2 different programs for different tasks.
Both programs are very good for what they do.

Sure just mux would be awesome feature in RipBot264.

Just remembering ... http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1493298&postcount=9466
I have done some encoding of DVD, and I can say that the tool PgcDemux was primordial to the success of all.
Without making the demux by PgcDemux or DVD Shrink (Re-author) is impossible to succeed at all.

B-Pyramid - Normal.
--b-pyramid <string> Keep some B-frames as references [normal]
- none: Disabled
- strict: Strictly hierarchical pyramid
- normal: Non-strict (not Blu-ray compatible)

Adaptive Quantizers strength
--aq-strength <float> Reduces blocking and blurring in flat and
textured areas. [1.0]

M.E. Range
--merange <integer> Maximum motion vector search range [40 for 720p, 60 for 1080p]

M.E. Algorithm
--me <string> Integer pixel motion estimation method ["hex"]
- dia: diamond search, radius 1 (fast)
- hex: hexagonal search, radius 2
- umh: uneven multi-hexagon search
- esa: exhaustive search
- tesa: hadamard exhaustive search (slow)

Psy-RD strength
--psy-rd Strength of psychovisual optimization ["1.0:0.0"]
#1: RD (requires subme>=6)
#2: Trellis (requires trellis, experimental)

Example:
--b-pyramid strict --aq-strength 0 --merange 60 --me umh --psy-rd 1

That will go in code box.
