yeah, I never watch movies in anything other than the original track either
might be a nice feature to add for those who want to add multiple tracks though (the multiple track could even be for something else, like commentary)

For any Anime lovers, how are you all doing your subtitles? For instance all my Funimation BD's each contain two sup files. One is usually the opening/closing audio track for the music and the other is the feature.

My output container is mp4 so I just embed the main feature subtitle track but was curious if there is a way to build both subtitle tracks onto the output video.

Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

RipBot264 is amazing! Does anyone know if there is a way to get it to demux the audio later in the process? So it doesn't do it right when you select a file. It would make encoding multiple files so much easier as you wouldn't have to wait for each file to demux before you start encoding. Thanks.

Hello all,

I just tried this pretty cool program but I was shocked to find out that Ripbot264 can not include more than one audio track in an MKV file.

For all people outside of english speaking countries this feature is absolutely essential!

Are there any plans to include support for multi audio MKVs in the future?
I'm guessing it's to keep ripbot as simple as possible. Less things to go wrong. But you can use mkvmerge, which is included in the ripbot package, to add multiple tracks and it takes just a few seconds.

@rc71

I see, but since it is possible to include "all subtitles" with Ripbot264, why isn't it possible to include *all* audiotracks as well??

This just doesn't make sense to me. And besides: It would be very, very useful to a lot of people.

Well.. maybe in a future version...

klopsknoedel
30th August 2011, 13:42
So you also have to encode all of them. The you also have to have the option set Standard-Flags for 1 Audio-Track.

A force-tag for Subtitles would be great so i don't have to build them into the movie itself.

pacaveli211
31st August 2011, 04:39
just because you include an audio track doesn't mean you have to encode it
also the stuff you guys want can be done via remuxing with mkvmerge. I know that's an extra step but that's what you'll need to do until ripbot can do the operations (if they get added)
It would be very, very useful to a lot of people.
it would surely be useful to some people. but just because you think it's the most important thing ever doesn't mean everyone needs it.
I'd never use it

Converting DTS to AC3... with quality, quick and easy.
For anyone who needs include dual audio... though the RipBot also converts.

Use my version... Here (http://goo.gl/pqVMR)

Just follow the two steps below:

1. Rename your DTS file to INPUT.dts audio and drag it for inside of the DTS2AC3 folder.

2. Run one of the "DTS2AC3.bat":
DTS2AC3-384kbit
DTS2AC3-448kbit
DTS2AC3-640kbit

The AC3 audio will be created and saved as you chose in the same folder, but with the name OUTPUT.ac3.

HI Jandor,

Ripbot doesnt calculate the conversion to fit under the DVD5 and DVD9 AVCHD format. Either if you convert it to .AC3, you need to calculate it manually.

I does like that (convert DTS to AC3 with EAC3toGUI that i copy into tools folder, and calculate manually:

Ex:
4475 - (ac3 size track 2) = ex. 4183, set 4175.
This example is for Multi AC3 Only, or audio I is DTS converted with ripbot.

For Multi DTS; ex:
8125 - (dts audio track #2) = ex. 7293mb, set it to 7175 (take out 100mb for conversion space, containers, etc.) and make an estimate to under 25mb range (ex. 4025mb, 4050mb, 4075mb).

In that way, i remux the output conversion with ripbot, add the second audio track, remux everything in AVCHD and everything fit under the DVD5/9 format with dual language.

That's the only one way i've found to add an second language.

If you had a more easy or faster way to do it, im open!:p

The problem is me because I always prefer original soundtrack + subtitles. I never liked hong kong movies with english soundtrack...


I understand but for a people like me that my primary language is something different that english (me is french) i prefer to listen first in my favorites language, and after listen in english. It's help to more understand after if i listen first in french. Also, my wife listen up in english, me in french. It's usefull to add the second language. Same for people how is primary language is French, Spanish, Portuguese.

Many people request that features. If you can took suggestions and on future think that it can be possible if many poeple is interested, we can wait the time you need to do it, sure we can wait.

Personnally, more than two years i've read over your thread and about 10 peoples ask that feature. I'Ve test HDConvertToX software that they are suppose to do it, but i experiencing many bugs so i prefer your software much stable and easy to use. I not like it, I LOVE IT! lol

Use 2-pass RipBot and control the size of the file containing an audio stream,
in ways that make room for the "remux" of the second audio.
Just need to know the size of the second audio stream.
I never liked 2-pass, but it is the way to enjoy the encoding of RipBot.

Really, RipBot264 and AVStoDVD, are my favorites.

@ jandor:

Your DTS2AC3 uses Aften as AC3 encoder. Because Aften has no really complex psycho-acoustic model yet, its efficiency is rather limited. High bitrates are recommended to preserve quality (with the limitation that "DVD Video" only supports AC3 up to 448 kbps; but current at-least-slightly Blu-ray compatible allround players and A/V Receivers should handle 640 kbps AC3).

jandor
1st September 2011, 13:33
Hi, @LigH

I see no difference to Aften conversion of the DTS2AC3 compared to other converters.
It may be strange, but I encode DVD-9 with AC3 640 kbps.
Which the best encoder AC3? Which of them does better quality print? I already know the eac3to.

Thanks!

klopsknoedel
1st September 2011, 13:35
eac3to also use the libAften.dll

LigH
1st September 2011, 14:39
I don't know any really free AC3 encoder with any halfway complex psycho-acoustic model (similar to e.g. the one the LAME MP3 encoder uses). All the more complex AC3 encoders I know are commercial. So regarding freeware, Aften is still the best we have. And I did not say it is bad; it just could be better, and you may hear the limits when the bitrate gets sparse - like only 384 kbps for 5.1 audio, or even less.

640 kbps is not part of the DVD Video specs; there may be DVD authoring tools which reject such streams, there may be DVD players which contain AC3 decoders which are limited to at most 448 kbps.

I just suddenly started error messages when trying to run mkvs through ripbot. After the stream is demuxed two error messages follow:

"avs2avi.exe" has stopped working
"test.exe" has stopped working

I tested a few mkvs and it appears h264 mkvs get processed fine but when I try to add a VC-1 mkv to Ripbot this is when I get the errors.

However, about a week ago I ran several VC-1 mkvs through Ripbot without an issue, and I have never had an issue in the past. I can think of anything I have done to my PC in the last week or so that would have screwed things up.

Any ideas?

If this is towards me Windows 7 x64. The mkvs are my VC-1 Blu-rays. I used MakeMKV to extract the individual episodes (TV Show Blu-ray) and then use Ripbot to process the individual mkvs. I have never had an issue in teh past doing it this way. I tried extracting the VC-1 track from the mkv and adding it to Ripbot as well, and get the same errors.

I have a question that no one has ever answered. I am running Windows 7 x64, and Ripbot 1.16.5, and all the latest codecs and Java 32, an 64 bit installed. I am noticing after a new complete install of my OS (fresh). When I choose to make a AVCHD and choose the option of 2-Pass. When it does it's first pass everything is smooth with ffdshow and haali splitter, but when it starts to go to the 2nd pass two more of the ffdshow and haali splitter icons appear on the task bar near the clock in which it causes glitches in the final rip of the movie. But, if I'm there at the PC when it fixing to start the 2nd pass and wave my mouse over the two new icons (remember there are 4 of them as the 2nd pass starts), they go away and everything the final rip is good. But, I'm not always around when it starts to go to the 2nd pass. So what is causing this and how do I resolve it? All suggestions would be appreciated. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the codecs, but a no fix. I also made a folder in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Ripbot, and right clicked on Ripbot icon and chose to pin to start button. To keep desktop clean of icons. PLEASE HELP!!!!!! Should I install a codec and reboot, and then install the next, reboot, and install the last then reboot? The video will freeze and audio keeps going. I'm burning my AVCHD onto $ony DVD+R's and DVDR+DL's. I also on buring with 4x with IMGBurn.

I recently noticed some pixelation/blockiness in some Ripbot files produced from Bluray Discs. They did not occur on every rip, but only some. After inspecting a number of my rips I noticed it only seems to be happening from VC-1 Blurays.

For the record I am converting to 720p MKV's with a CRF of 20. I used auto crop with custom size (1280 x XXX)- everything else is left at the default 4.0 profile settings.

Doing a google search, I found this thread that explains the exact problem I am seeing and has photo examples: How to avoid this kind of blocks? (https://forum.handbrake.fr/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=21603)

I did a test with Handbrake and the resulting file produced the same type of blocks as Ripbot. According to the Handbrake thread it could be a decoding problem caused by a bug in libav? I am not totally tech savy on this, but could this be the same case with Ripbot? Reading through the threads here it seems Ripbot uses FFDshow which uses wmv9 for VC-1, not libav? - So, I don't know why I would see the same result with both programs.

Obviously, I am not prolific in the technicalities of these programs and I am hoping someone can shed some light- most importantly a fix- for this picture degradation I am experiencing.

The mp4 is 29.97 and so is the output mkv.

I've tried muxing the original audio track with the new video but I'm having the same problem, even though the new video file is the same time (length) as the old
Very strange since most files don't have any issues.

Thanks for the reply pacaveli211, I have tried 18 and 20- both produce the blockiness.

I am using ffdshow rev3974 which appears to be more recent than the one in the link you provided (3914). I got 3974 from videohelp.com I believe. I recently upgraded to 3974, I will have to check and compare older encodes to see if they exhibit the same blocks as the recent ones- I am not sure if all of the ones I saw the problem on where from 3974. This could be a solution.

I found a strange suggestion to some of my sync problems. Some suggested manually putting in the info using mkv merge. Naming the tracks and putting in the fourcc code.

The weird thing is that worked for an mp4 in a mkv container. Everything is in sync.

No luck with reEcoding that mkv though.

Ripbot seems to have problem with some AC3 - >AAC issues. The channels to map properly. Nero encodes them properly, but trying to reencode that file still causes sync errors.

The sync problem also happens about half way through at a chapter point. And it's all of a sudden so I can't just do and audio delay for the whole file. (Removing chapters
doesn't help.)


Please. Anyone? I've recoded dozens of shows with nero recode and they are all oversized to get full quality. Getting this working would save me hundreds of gigs of space.

are you encoding from a bluray?
is the vc-1 in an MKV?

I am encoding from a VC-1 Bluray to MKV. For some reason the mpeg4 AVC blurays don't seem to have as noticeable of a problem (there is still some blockiness in dark areas, but no where near as much as from VC1 blurays). I use the 4.0 profile @ cq 20 and encode at 720p instead of 1080. Should I change anything else, or do you feel those settings should not produce the blocks I am seeing?

I guess VC1 is a problem for the decoding and/or encoding?

It's your decoder setup, am betting you haven't bypassed MediaFoundation ...

what good is doing all that other than the fact that it suggests to install some dumb codec pack that'll probably mess things up?

shanndogg - you should make sure ffdshow vc-1 is set to wmv9 and not anything else
I thought I had you check that already - but it was someone else I'd said that to.
prob not the issue since it does it with other software which doesn't use FFDShow....but just in case

Yes, ffdshow has VC-1 decoder listed as wmv9.

Hello,
Once ripbot demuxes your MT2S into Audio Video and subs... instead of reencoding the streams then muxing them into MKV can it not simply let me remux (without any encoding done) the streams that I need to MKV - same way as say MKVmerge does.

All I need is strip whats not needed like foreign languages and foreign subs and keep what I need.

This would be amazing and quite simple to do I would have thought - basically in the encoder settings you would have an option to leave all the settings the same as the original resulting in just a quick remux job...

I am hoping that this is already possible (in Ripbot) and someone would just tell me how stupid I am for not seeing it - please don;t tell me to go back to the old archai ways of demuxing manually with eac3to then remuxing again manually with mkvmerge .. I wanna do batch queues !!! :)

eac3to is archaic?
btw, it seems you can have eac3to automatically mux to MKV for you, rather than using mkvmerge

what good is doing all that

Cause the guy is clueless and just setting FFDShow to WMV9 is not enough, on Windows 7 you need to tell MediaFoundation not to decode VC-1 (or it will by default, not matter what is installed or what DirectShow options are) ...

So the very least he needs to ensure wmv9 is set and run the preferred filter tweak that disables MediaFoundation ...

My VC-1 decodes were once badly macroblocking and the above link step-by-step actually fixed the problem when the collective brain trust here couldn't ;)

A noob question:
How can I add an additional audio profile of 48 kbps in the drop down list of RipBot since I can find the lowest value 64 kbps?
Its crazy to edit 'job#_EncodeAudio.cmd' for every single job and change the value to 49152.

Any idea? Thanx.

How many MB do you save by using 48kbps versus 64kbps?

64kbps - 48kbps = 16kbps
16kbps / 8 = 2KB/s

7200s (120min movie) * 2KB/s = 14MB !!!

I see no reason to go below 64kbps.

Hi Atak,

i've got some display-issues with *.sub - Subtitles within an MKV while playing it on a Blu-Ray-Player (LG BD550).
Even if I add this MKV in tsmuxer to mux to an AVCHD tsmuxer can't read these subtitle-tracks.

If I exchange these *.sub-files with the original *.sup everything works fine. Whithin the Player AND tsmuxer.

Thanks for the help, haven't tried the suggested K-lite/mediafoundation tweak yet, but there has been a strange development in my situation:

Normally, I do the encode with Ripbot and quickly scan through it using WMP12 to make sure it came out OK. In WMP12, I get the major macro-blocking. I downloaded VLC media player to see if there was a difference and there is.

WMP12 would show the blocking/pixelation always in the same spots and scenes. This macro-blocking in the specific areas is gone when playing back in VLC, BUT the overall quality is worse as the blocking/distortion will seem like it is starting to fade in- then all of a sudden it will snap off and the picture will look normal. Then after a time it will repeat the process of the distortion starting to appear, then disappears. The level of distortion varies.

Any thoughts on my situation now, or have any of you experienced this and were able to fix it?

7ekno
13th September 2011, 11:35
WMP12 using MediaFoundation decoding, VLC has internals ...

Check with DXVA turned off as well (there was a DXVA bug that could cause macroblocking in certain versions) ...

If the decode is the same with and without DXVA in VLC, then it's in the encode, in which case you will have to bypass MediaFoundation for the decode process before the encode :P

I also recommend MPC-HC. Can be downloaded over here (http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/). Very lightweight and powerfull with the ability to use external decoders like the ffdshow ones.

If you have problems with H.264 in MPC-HC go to "Properties -> Internal Filters" and uncheck the H264/AVC and VC1 filter to force external decoding by ffdshow (or others you've selected using Win7DSFilterTweaker).

Tried with VLC GPU acceleration on and off (believe this is the DXVA setting) and it gave me the same appearing/disappearing blocky result. I followed the 7 steps you previously linked using the K-lite mega codec pack and Win7DSFilter Tweak and did another encode with Ripbot. Same results.

Downloaded MPC-HC and it provides the same type of problems I was having with WMP12. Tried playing the encodes pre and post the k-lite/media foundation tweak method- all have same results.

I also recommend MPC-HC. Can be downloaded over here (http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/). Very lightweight and powerfull with the ability to use external decoders like the ffdshow ones.

If you have problems with H.264 in MPC-HC go to "Properties -> Internal Filters" and uncheck the H264/AVC and VC1 filter to force external decoding by ffdshow (or others you've selected using Win7DSFilterTweaker).

Tried playing the files with H264/AVC and VC1 checked and unchecked- no change.

I also downloaded a version of the encode so I could compare it to the one I did directly from disc and it too had the same picture problems. Thus, it would seem that my encode(s) are fine. So, I either have some type of playback problem on my computer or some discs can't be encoded that well. Since I found that link in the Handbrake forums posted by someone else, at least I know I'm not the only one with this problem- it would obviously just be better if there was a solution.

One other thing I wanted to mention is that I usually watch my encodes via Boxee Box on a 46" LCD and rarely notice any of the blocks/pixelation that I do on certain files when playing them on my computer (the blocks may not even be there when playing back via Boxee as I can't see them and they are pretty obvious on the computer). Not sure why that would be, but having the blocks on the computer doesn't really make sense as it is. Thanks for all the help!

I have an 8800GTX and am running the latest driver 280.26. I also have DirectX9c installed.

The playing length of the video I have been testing most is 1 hour 45 minutes and I encode it to 720p (from 1080p bluray source) and the file comes out to 2.41 GB. This is done at CRF 20.

Trying to do that now- can't find a program to edit out a part of the mkv- tried AVIdemux but it keeps crashing. Will probably just encode a chapter that has severe blocks, but it will probably have to be with Handbrake.

- In Ripbot encoding takes also 30 minutes ( 7 min PASS1 and 23 minutes PASS2 )
- Why did you choose just AAC HE 64K in stead of " copy stream " ???

However, Ripbot works perfectly , here it is ( btw , same resolution ) :

Well that's good news at least. It must be something on my systems that I'm installing everytime.

Appreciate the help. At least I know there is a fix since it's my system.

Any ideas why MeGUI which, uses NeroAAC, encodes the audio fine, but not with Ripbot? I suspect the extraction. When had channel mix ups, Left is rear, right is sub,etc, the problem starts at the extractor, mp4box.

Yes, at first. However, when I was reading up on what to encode at from guides, forums, etc. the general consensus was that a CRF of 22-20 was recommended for HD sources and 20-18 for DVD. I prefer quality over file size so I went with 20 for HD sources and 18 for DVD.

I was amazed to see most of the 1080p sources coming out at about 2.5gb 720p files and thought that was really small. I was concerned when the average bitrates showed more in the 2500 kpbs range when I read that for 720p you usually want around 6000 kpbs (or 8000 kpbs for 1080p). When I played the 720p files done at crf 20 they looked great. I was amazed and a true believer in how good 264 is so I thought that even though the bitrate seemed low, it didn't matter as the picture looked so good.

Aside from all that, the problem I am referring to in the sample is present whether I encode at crf 20, 18, or 2 pass at 6144 kpbs. In addition, this excessive blockiness only seems to occur from VC1 sources. Could it be that some sources (this one in particular) requires a much higher kpbs in order to remove the blocks?

I am very interested to hear your take on my understanding of what crf should be used vs overall bitrate and, more importantly, were you able to reproduce the blockiness I am referring to when playing back the sample.

OK budy , waiting for good news ;-)

That didn't work. It still hangs for a little bit, but not as long as it did before. I never had these problem till I upgraded to 1.16.4, and converted to a x64 bit processor. This is frustrating.

You said you haven't installed a Codec Pack at all but VLC includes a Codec-Pack!
Please try MPC-HC from here (http://mpc-hc.sourceforge.net/) and disable H.264 and VC.1 insite MPC-HC to force external encoders (Preferences -> Internal Filters).
Let us know if you still have these problems.

I'm not trying to watch my avchd on my desktop. I am watching these on my $ony standalone bluray player. So why do I need to install another media player? I don't watch movies on my desktop. I need this issue resolved so I can enjoy my AVCHD on my HTS.

- Have you pushed the .exe button for installing DirectX ???
- What NET Framework version do you have installed on your OS ???

uhhh, someone correct me if I'm wrong...but there's a significant difference between VLC and a codec pack. VLC uses internal / it's own codecs. it doesn't register them globally on your machine, VLC just uses them. i.e. installing VLC is NOT installing a codec pack.

Here is a link to a sample file I have been talking about that has massive blockiness:
http://www.mediafire.com/?01ekii73a0226q9

Please fast forward to 6:10 and you can see the blocks in the shadows and particularly at the shot of the bed on both the left and right sides. Also, in the last shot of the guy in the hat you can see the blocks on the left hand side in the black area (particularly at the top) and the right side in the blue area.

Let me know how it plays back for you. Thanks!

Thanks, I would be interested to hear what your bd25 looks like compared to the sample file.

Especially, since I found this thread (http://forum.videohelp.com/threads/338855-how-does-Ripbot264-think) on Videohelp that seems to discuss the exact problem I brought up starting at post #7. From the thread and my own experience, it seems like the problem is one of two things: either there is some type of decode and/or encode problem with VC1 sources, or it's working as intended and your monitor black levels need to be at a certain setting. I would lean towards the former as non-VC1 sources seem to come out ok.

Hey Atak ,

Can you tell us where do we find parameters like that one shown above ( keyint 24 ) ????
Reading this site I saw that are much more such "extra" parameters .... I'm interested in them . Are these new parameters made by you or we can find them on a list or smth like that ??
Default Ripbot has few parameters ; where do we find the other ones ???

Thanks for replay !!

PS : I've already tried few times to put some extra parameteres within code box but most of them gave errors....It must be sort of special syntax ....
If you agree I can send to you those few extra parameters I need , to show me their syntax for Ripbot .

YIPPPY. I found a solution, work around, to my audio sync issues. There is this program called Reclock that deals with the PAL 25fps issue, but it does other FPS's and it keeps things at the correct fps. Well Reclock makes x264, avs2avi and Bepipe stay at the proper fps. Success. In sync file.

@Atak So with this info, what do you think I have a bad .Net install, driver, ripbot, or what? I uninstalled everything and reinstalled only the required ripbot software + MPC and I still had sync issues. Any guesses?

Hi, quick question. Is there any way to get Ripbot to send the computer to sleep rather than shutdown when finished jobs? Its not a major issue but i like my PC to sleep when not in use, but i have to get it to shutdown every time i leave a batch running if i know im going to be out or busy when the queue is finished.

Sorry but i dont always want my PC to sleep when its idle, sometimes i do though and that is why i asked this question. If ripbot has the ability to turn off the PC when it is finished, surely adding sleep, lock, hibernate functions is possible, and wont hurt it.

Is it possible with Ripbot to have completely lossless conversion. Like could you use a custom CQ level of below 18?. I am currently using a program called Bytecopy which offers 100% lossless conversion. I do not care at all about file size as some movies could could be between 20gb - 35gb. Is there any custom settings I could use as I think the user interface on Ripbot264 is amazing! However I want completely Lossless conversion

That's what I love to see too.
Copy the Video and Audio - Source to merge them in an mkv-file.

For now I have to do it this way:

1. Demux the Main-Movie: adding the *.pls (use RipBot to find the correct main-movie-one) to tsmuxer
2. Get the chapters out of tsmuxer and copy/paste them into a .txt-file
3. convert the chapters with "TxtToChap (http://www.gurgle.be/java/txt2chap/txt2chap.html)"
4. load the converted chapter-file in mkvmerge -> Chapter Editor -> load
5. save the chapters for use in mkv: mkvmerge -> Chapter Editor -> save
6. add the saved chapter-xml in mkvmerge -> Global -> Chapter-File
7. Add your source-files in mkvmerge as usual
8. set language for audio- and sup-file
9. set forced-flag to the sup-stream if needed

RipBot allready have the ability to do all those anoying steps automatically, The only things which has to be added is "Copy Video-Stream" and the abillity to force subtitles. And that's it.

Dude that's built into windows. It's best to learn about the sleep settings on your PC than adding another piece of software to do what Windows already does.

All you have to is set the idle time. When the programs are idle for the set time, your machine will go to sleep. That goes for HD.

I know Ripbot is done because my PC is asleep.

@ muhadi:

Not as simple as it seems. Some users prefer technically correct conversions via ITU-R matrices, PC/TV scale (coring), etc.; if you don't care too much about that, you may want to compare the AviSynth functions Levels(gamma) and Tweak(contrast, brightness).

But I can't help you about how to use them in RipBot264.

turn the brightness up on your tv / monitor, simple fix
some, more advanced players, will also allow on the fly adjustments. VLC, for example, has some video filtering such as brightness/contrast/sharpness, etc

Hello everyone. I was wondering if anyone had a ideas on how to do something. I need to DENOISE something, but the ripbot denoise is it's a bit too strong for this file. Is there another way to do a denoise so that I can control the settings a little more?? Maybe some encoder settings like deblocking or something? Thanks

If you select properties on the main Ripbot screen, it will open up some choices. The third screen has COLORs. Choose TWEAK and there you'll see settings for contrast and hue and brightness.
Good Luck.

While I have had the same issues, the recommendation you have given doesn't seem to be necessary as the version that is recommend is 1.1.0.0 from 2008 which is what ripbot seem to be currently using.

"... And yes - there is a problem. The 1.1.0.0 version of the Arcsoft DTS decoder applies the wrong channel matrix for any 7.1 content (you heard it here first ;-). The 1.1.0.8 is fine regarding any channel layout BUT isn't able to decode 6.1 streams at all. So there you have it - no version works for everything.."

Keep reading the next page ;)

There are TWO versions of 1.1.0.0, one dated 21-Apr-2008 and one dated 25-Apr-2008 ...

The 21-Apr-2008 version swaps the 7.1 channels, the 25-Apr-2008 version doesn't (ripbot264 is using the 21-Apr-2008 version and hence the channel swap) :P

use ffdshow/ blur and NR/gradual denoise

its on the left pane of ffdshow, try when choosing to preview script in ripbot, video must be playing


or use 0,0 deblock and above so up to +3,+3

That's good to know. You would think with all the freaken numbers they could have 1.1.1.0 of something. Anyway, I haven't found is 25apr08 one. If you have it, throw it up on mediafire (no timers, no captcha) so we can all share. For now it's just vaporware.

I have a BluRay disc with a small scratch on it, so I ripped it using ddrescue on Linux to create an image of the original disc. ddrescue reports that there was about 2MB of data on the BluRay that were unreadable. I'd like to still rip and convert the movie, ignoring the few errors on the disc (I'll live with missing video).

However, when I try to rip with RipBot, it still fails due to errors in the bitstream:


[s07] The source file seems to be damaged (sync byte missing). <WARNING>
[s07] The SUP reader received unknown data. <ERROR>
[a03] [0:16:45] The source file seems to be damaged (discontinuity). <WARNING>
[a03] The ArcSoft DTS Decoder reported an error while decoding. <ERROR>
Aborted at file position 5044699136. <ERROR>


Is there anyway to have it ignore the errors? If not RipBot, is there some other ripping method I should try that might be less sensitive to the errors in the original bitstream?

Avisynth with either FFMS2 or DGDec (cause they are frame accurate), use the trim() command to skip around the damaged part, feed the AVS file into Ripbot264 ...

Audio may glitch, but can use the same trim() trick for that ...

Hi Atak,

Would you consider putting a setting under MKV for complete lossless conversion of Blu-rays for people who don't care about file size? The only program I have found to do this is Byte Copy by Pavtube. However Ripbot264 is superior in many other ways so I was hoping that in the next build you might consider a completely lossless setting.

Makemkv seems defunct hasn't been updated in over 3 years. Another EAC3ToGui I had never heard of but lists as one of its requirements as AnyDVD-HD.

probably easier just to rip the files and use mkvmerge to get your loseless files.

Try to understand which reasons could exist why the CPU is used with obviously less than 100%: Usually because the CPU has so little efforts that it mostly waits for hardware (reading from disk, accessing RAM, writing to disk).

You could try to disable the "Turbo mode" for the first pass, that could help you wasting more electricity; but you may not gain visible quality.

hi
i have a question about the audio profile

why is the audio bit rate limited to 64 , 96 and 128 kbps ????

it would be great if the whole options are included i mean from 32 to 320 kbps

giving the user more audio bit rate options is what missing from this great wonderful software

Atak_Snajpera
30th October 2011, 10:19
because it does not make sense. for instenance have you ever seen stereo ac3 encoded at 384,448,640 kbps. higher bitrate is only useful for streams with more channels.

ahmad2008
30th October 2011, 10:36
i was not talking about ac3 but about the 2 channels.

i meant more audio bit rate options for the 2 channels from 32 to 320 kbps just like mp3

Atak_Snajpera

why? because you like placebo effect? aac 128kps gives better quality than mp3 192kbps.

More freedom of choice for the bit rate from 32 to 320kbps is so much better than to be limited to only 3 choices (64,96,128 ) for all your videos encoding even if aac 128kps gives better quality than mp3 192kbps.

I'm guessing it's to keep ripbot as simple as possible. Less things to go wrong. But you can use mkvmerge, which is included in the ripbot package, to add multiple tracks and it takes just a few seconds.

I see your point a little, but if you really need something that big, why are you bothering with ripbot? The point is to make things smaller.
If you need 320k MP3's, maybe Ripbot might not be right for you.

If you are a 64k MP3 Pro person, this is the game for you.

Ultimately, you can manually go in to the jobs queue and change the number to whatever you want. Just open up the .bat file and go at it.

First, 'I want quality, but if quality drops, that doesn't matter.' Huh?

Anyway, if you use CQ mode with NO filters, you get 100%. If you touch it in anyway, you get 30%. That tells me it's not a System issue, but a program issue. It seems that the x264 encoder doesn't like to use external filters or settings.

CQ mode is actually encoding. First pass, by default, is a fast pass, not an actual encode.

i hope i find it in the next releaseI can understand WHY you would want the full list of available bitrates, but it's not going to happen in RipBot. This program is about total simplicity and introducing too many tweaks/bithead options will not stop if something like this request is allowed.

Seriously, if you can do some ABX tests and show that you really need more than 128K on two channel content, that might convince Atak to add more, but until that time it's not gonna happen. Check out the tests of music (much more difficult than effects in movies) at hydrogenaudio.org and tell me you need more than 128K. Maybe, just maybe adding 160 to placate those wanting more, but it's not necessary.

@ Zorro70:

Always unterstand that the encoder can only encode as fast as it receives the uncompressed video it shall process.

What exactly is your source? (MediaInfo analysis please.) Which decoder do you use to decode it for x264, if it is compressed?

If the source is compressed, the bottleneck might be the decoder running in one thread only, or the filtering, before the final video arrives in the encoder.

If the source is completely uncompressed, the bottleneck might be the harddisk, but you will know how many GB per minute you stored.
__

THEY ARE BETTER QUALITY THAN THE ORIGINALs.

It may look better, but can't be better. That is the difference between "subjective quality" (how annoying the flaws appear) and "objective quality" (any difference is a loss, no matter if it looks more convenient).

rc71
1st November 2011, 14:59
While I understand what you are trying to say about something being recompressed being better, "It may look better, but can't be better." since this is video and it's subjective quality is visual, if it looks better than it is better. :)

@ Zorro70:

I'll have to investigate that. Sounds like a promising lead. As for the other suggestions, remember that CPU usage only drops when you change the profile away from CQ. Either with filters or by making it two pass. Since with CQ/no filters vs. CQ/filter CPU usage drops from 98% to 30%, that doesn't suggest it's a system bottleneck.

Also at least for me, I'm using the 32bit version. This might different for 64bit.

There is a new version of x264.exe that was released last week. You could try it. Didn't seem to do much for me. CPU usage has increased from a bit more with No increase or real change in FPS.

LigH
1st November 2011, 15:42
1) If you believe it looks much better, enjoy. But don't try to measure anything with "quality metrics" – they will call any kind of difference a "quality loss". ;)

2) x264 will probably be the most efficient link in the encoding chain, spreading its efforts across all available CPU cores. If it can't use all of them all the time, then it must have to wait for something else before...

rc71
1st November 2011, 16:12
Update. The New x264 file does do better with different settings. I'm using custom settings and NO filters, but I'm rocking 98% CPU so it's better than before.

@dbart: check your CPU temperatures and frequency during encoding... I had similar problem with my i7-920, originally there was only a standard boxed cooler mounted and it didn't provide enough cooling effect. Once the encoding process started and all cores were fully loaded the temperatures raised to max and CPU throttled its frequency drastically to prevent over-heating. When I replaced that lame CPU cooler with better one all problems disappeared.

Can someone explain to me why just using Film Denoising in Ripbot saves a lot of space by using less bitrate when everything is equal? It seems like the Film - Denoise causes a lot of gradient problems in dark scenes.. it can be a little annoying but it's nothing major.. The space savings at the end of a decode almost make it seem worth it.

I'm not fully sure what you're saying / asking here...but:
when running anything through ripbot you are encoding it (not decoding). anything that has been run through will be, technically, less superior in quality. there is no 'equal' setting.
and, obviously, if the bitrate is lower, so is the quality (and size)

klopsknoedel
5th November 2011, 17:05
@pacaveli211 that was not the question

@Noisrevid
Of course denoised encodings have a much smaller size than those without.
The reason is that the encoder is looking at the grainy/noisy source-material and treats these noise/grain as wanted details. So the encoder needs a very high bitrate to prevent those "details" from being muddy.
If you denoise it befor you send it to the encoder you will have much more clean areas on which the encoder can use a lot smaller bitrate. So the encoded movie has a smaller file-size.

For Example:
I've encoded an old movie with a lot of grain in it with CQ 22 and i had an overall bitrate of 14 Mb/s -> a huge file-size.

Then i've encoded an anime which usually have clean colored areas. On that I could set the CQ to !14! and the overall bitrate was around 8 Mb/s -> smaller file-size.

I hope this answered your question.

My next area of issue is this..

I want to conform my Blu-Ray collection to 720p MKV files.

The problem is that the settings I use for one movie can output to a reasonable 3gb when i'm done.. and then another Blu Ray rip comes out to 7gb. I want to keep my movies around the same quality and reasonably close together in size. I'm not sure what the common practices is here.. I don't have a powerful enough machine to keep testing my encodes with different CRF values until I get the desired file size. I need a method that conforms my videos to a within reasonable sizes without any huge quality loss.

I understand that x264 is seeing scenes in movies that require more bitrate than others.. and action, high paced movies versus a drama is going to net a higher sized file at the end.

When i've downloaded movies, I see some people 2 passing their 1080p flicks to 8gb (or whatever size fits on a dual layer dvd).

For 720p, for what I want, should I just 2 pass every single movie to 4.7gb (for single layer dvd archiving purposes). For most movies, there will be more than enough bitrate allocated for ANY movie..

Leaving a CRF of 18 for every movie gives me extremely way off results depending on the source material.. I can't seem to find any happy medium or process that gives me end result file sizes within 25% of each other.

Thoughts? Help? Thanks!

As I told you many times , smth strange happens with Ripbot from time to time....
For instance : when I try to encode a .ts file , after I changed extention into m2ts , Ripbot continue to give errors....and that because I changed in tools the "264" files from 01.04 with 01.11 and that generates errors...
It seems that last versions do not accept to be updated and also do not accept some modifications within encoding parameters....
I trying to make some tests and I'll tell you results...as soon as possible....

Take care !! ;-)

I have installed RipBot and AVisynth, ffdshow, haali media splitter and .Net Framework, but am unable to get very far with RipBot. My son has had great success with this program, and I am hoping to, as well.

I open RibBot and try to point it to a file on a movie DVD. That is as far as I can get before getting the following error messages:

Decoding Error
Evaluate: System Exception - Access Violation (c:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line2)

Error
Too many pictures per GOP (>=500). BGIndex will terminate. [OK]

I have uninstalled and installed all of the above programs, but it makes no difference. I have searched this forum for help before posting this query, but could not locate anything applicable. My apologies if I missed something.

Thanks for your interest and advice!

"Too many pictures per GOP" - on a (legacy) DVD-Video? That sounds like RipBot is unable to decode the video correctly. Possibly because it is CSS-encrypted on the DVD?

Despite the suggesting name, RipBot is not responsible for "ripping from optical disc to harddisk", especially not for the decoding of encrypted video.

Stopping encoding such stuff is not a solution:(
We must fight for discovering the secret and for working well as other kinda files....
I'm doing lot of tests , but for the moment NO good results:(...still that bloody "out of sinc" between sound and image. I know how to solve it - by additional maneuvers , by handling additional softs, even this is not a convenient solution...
Ripbot MUST do it itself , without external help ;-)

Why don't you upload 50 MB sample to www.mediafire.com ???

I never said I stopped encoding anything. I just stopped renaming between .m2ts and .ts
it's not a necessity

Filename extensions should not cause a different file handling per se, anyway: They may be a hint which content you may expect, but they can always be wrong, so a content analysis is the only certain way to identify the required steps. In this case, *.ts vs. *.m2ts may give a hint about 188 vs. 192 byte Transport Stream format (without or with timestamps), but doesn't need to. It is just a Windows specific habit to use them to assign applications, and therefore give them an indirect meaning at all.

How many people e.g. renamed *.mkv to *.avi to enable playback out of a file manager, instead of additionally registering the *.mkv extension with a player; that is no solution, that is hardly a workaround... but you have to know that file extension registrations can and should be edited in Windows to assign "default applications" to open files with a specific extension.

That makes the experience with a specific OS. Before I knew that file types in MacOS 8/9 were handled via FourCCs in metadata, I was surprised that renaming extensions had no effect at all...

I have a folder full of MKVs that I want to convert to iPad format. All the MKVs have the same properties: 1080p AVC (High@L4.0) video & 640 Kbps AC-3 audio.
All I want to do is change each file from (High@L4.0) to (Main@L3.1) & from AC-3 to 128 Kbps AAC (LC) ... Also changing from MKV to MP4.

I know how to do all of this in Ripbot, my question is: Can I apply these settings to multiple files in the same folder without having to load each one into RipBot individually?

Well , Ripbot is not yet like Bayer aspirin: to go directly and look for painful place ...
Put all those files personally , with your own hands and do not be so lazy !!

Good luck !
