Put all those files personally , with your own hands and do not be so lazy !!

I've created all 200+ files myself, and i'm looking for a faster way to re-encode all of them. If anyone knows a way it would be a huge help. I think the problem lies in the fact that each MKV would need to be demuxed before the video can be re-encoded.

Try HandBrake.

Otherwise, if all files are exactly the same, it should be very easy to write a batch of your own, if you have basic knowledge of batch and x264. If you use a patched x264 you could even circumvent spending any time on remuxing the video.
I could help writing a simple batch for you, but we better not do it inside this thread as it would be off topic, then.

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.


You can try MkvToMp4 (http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=163050).This program makes mp4 compatible with iPad. But 1080p will not sync via iTunes with iPad1, only iPad2.

When a SUP file is large (>100 MB), I get a 'Memory Error' when loading it in RipBot. Here's a sample (http://www.4shared.com/file/LRjA2RqV/Elf__2003__track3_eng.html) from Elf (2003) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0319343/).

Hi... simple question, how do I fix aspect ratio of the original 16:9 material to 4:3, after cropping it. In this particular case I am cropping a 1920:1080 frame to a 1440:1080 frame.

If I just crop and encode (mkv) then it still shows stretched and MPC reports it as 16:9 AR in the properties. I also tried re-muxing it via mkv-toolnix and setting the AR there but it doesn't fix things.

I don't want to resize the video using 4:3 profiles (although I tried that too, using custom resize that matches my targetted frame hoping that resize would just pass it through) but the end result was still being reported as 16:9.

Obviously I can fix the picture aspect on the TV and/or the player but that's beside the point.

Thanks! I've used RipBot for quite a while now and it really is good.

Atak_Snajpera
24th November 2011, 15:48
for that particular case you will have to manually edit jobx_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd and jobx_EncodeVideoPass2.cmd.

Change --sar x:x to --sar 1:1

1440x1080 in AVCHD camcorders / HDV / HD-TV is always 16:9.

ziimen
24th November 2011, 18:22
Yes, that worked exactly as expected. Perfect. Thank you. I am not sure though why 4:3 framed video would show up as 16:9 in avchd material.

Either way, would you consider adding "--sar" parameter to the GUI?

Atak_Snajpera
24th November 2011, 18:30
sar is calculated automatically.

200? I was on your side until that. You do know you can add files whilst it's encoding right? Start one encode and just add as you wish.

Simple answer. Use mkvedit. It's in the ripbot folder in the tools subfolder. With mkvedit you have two choices. You can recompile the file with your specs, takes a few seconds, or just edit the header info to display what you want. That's why I love MKV's. The header editor is in the FILE toolbar. I use those features all the time to fix AR.

You can probably check my posts, I've been bugging for changes and fixes, but remember what you are asking. Tweaks! Not redesigns. Atak has made it clear he will not use the NeroAAC encoder, but I need it as I have a sync problem. So I use MEGui when I need to. How useful would it be to start berating Ripbot?

Bottom line if you are a hardcore encoder, you don't need ripbot and you can be on your way. If you aren't, then you probably should show some respect.

I'm just going off what Atak said. He said he would not use NeroAAC since it's a commercial product. Or something like that. I wasn't the first to ask for NeroAAC. Personally I've never seen anything encoded with Ogg, but it's in ripbot so someone must use it.

Well I never used ogg vorbis until recently. Especially the builds with aotuv have really good sound quality and compression. Saves being tied into Nero. Also noticed from late last year a lot of manufacturers have started including support for vorbis and releasing firmware upgrades to support it.

Ripbot264 is perfect for me I have just a small suggestion to make:
- Increase the bitrate AAC 2.0 up to 256 Kbps & AAC 5.1 to 640 Kbps (for audiophiles)
- No encoding codecs (FFDShow -> MPlayer or other) ;)

In any case I find Ripbot264 Great with every encouragement Atak_Snajpera thank you

Hi, How to Use MTMode ?

Using multi-threading in AviSynth is not really trivial (with some bad luck it may even crash instead of speedup, or corrupt the video content). And it isn't a guaranteed speed boost either. If the script filtering is not the slowest part of the processing, multi-threading the script won't give you any remarkable boost. Then it's like a spoiler on a city car trying to equalize a pulled handbrake – wrong tuning target.

LigH
8th December 2011, 10:25
If you use DirectShowSource, and ffdshow is used as video decoder filters, it renders all the post processing filters for DirectShowSource which you also use in video playback.

Try to use an AviSynth native source plugin instead of DirectShowSource to avoid ffdshow being used in conversions.

Please, help me :)

I´m asking too ...

my CPU utilization is about 65-70 % when encoding 1080 material, when encoding SD material, utilization is close to 100 %

I´m converting my collection of DVDs to H264/AAC/MP4 with denoising(if needed) / (optionaly deinterlace) and resize to 1080

using intel Q8300@3GHz/6GB RAM/win7 x64 ultimate, GT430, RipBot,DGDecNV,FFT3DGPU

encoding fps with 1920x1080 is ~ 3, with 1440x1080 is ~4 -4.3

im doing resizing and deinterlacing with DGDecode ( for old movies, its enough )

I´m asking experienced users to help us speeding up our encoding process, It will be more useful, than waiting for new version of RipBot.

Thank you all and Thank you Atak for your work

For DVD sources you can try this

#MT
SetMTMode(5,0)

#VideoSource
LoadPlugin("...\Tools\dgindex\DGDecode.dll")
video=MPEG2Source("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\job1.d2v")
SetMTMode(2)
#Deinterlace
...


if you use GPU denoising you must set back MT mode to 5!
GPU denosing does not work well with multiple instances.
#MT
SetMTMode(5,0)

#VideoSource
LoadPlugin("...\Tools\dgindex\DGDecode.dll")
video=MPEG2Source("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\job1.d2v")
SetMTMode(2)
#Deinterlace
...

SetMTMode(5)
#Denoise
LoadPlugin("...\Tools\AviSynth plugins\fft3dgpu\fft3dgpu.dll")
LoadPlugin("...\Tools\AviSynth plugins\gradfun2db\gradfun2db.dll")
video=FFT3DGPU(video,sigma=1.25).gradfun2db


First example will give you the highest cpu usage and encoding speed.

If you are more obsessed with cpu utilization than speed :

FastFirstPassin2passMode=0

ps. i´m not obssesed by CPU using, but i´m not happy, when there is a potential to speed up things. When there will be no space to speed up and fps will be still ~3 i will be happy (until i switch to powerfull HW ;) )

Remember the beauty of the i5 and i7 is that the multicore processing is hardware process. There fore they use multicore processing on none mulithreaded apps. That being said, you have 4 cores that is really 2 x 2. So software can use 4 cores/software or just hardware 2 cores/hardware.

lets continue talk about speeding-up things

using MT don´t bring expected effect, but it was expected (with using GPU filtering) :)

I tried to move CPU freq for another 500 MHz (from 2,5 to 3,0 to 3,5 GHz) and there is not problem with CPU, wprime runs without problems (but there are problems with memories DDR2-800 running on 952, i must start "overclock" also them).

other thing that help (little bit) was change process priority from normal to high, (x264-x64, avs2yuv, pipebuf) - maybe tip for future ripbot versions

what is the purpose of two last programs? i dont see them in for example in 64-bit version of x264 HD benchmark.

Ive been using the latest version of Ripbot for about a week now to encode all my original StarTrek TNG episodes. The profile Ive been using is High 4.0 HD Interlaced as my sources are MPEG's interlaced. Because I'm fairly new to encoding with Ripbot I would also like to know how I go about updating the x264 encoder?, is it just a case of going into the Tools folder and swapping out the x264 for latest one?.

I'd also like to give a personal thanks to the developer Atak Snajpera. I will be making a donation in due course as this program is one of the best out there.

Merry Xmas

Ideally I would like to convert to progressive, however I've not had any problems with the encodes that I now know to be MBAFF...

On MeWiki - x264 settings the following is stated under the tff section:

"Enable interlaced encoding and specify the top field is first. x264's interlaced encoding uses MBAFF, and is inherently less efficient than progressive encoding. For that reason, you should only encode interlaced if you intend to display the video on an interlaced display (or can't deinterlace the video before sending it to x264)."

My question is how is it less efficient exactly?.

in pal eveything is simpler. in your case you dont have to do any deinterlacing because both fields belong to the same frame so you should not see any horizontal lines. just use hd progressive profile

Hi Atak, Im in the process of encoding using just the progressive profile, I'll let you know how it goes :thanks:

Hi Atak, Ok I tried encoding with just the hd Progressive profile. Unfortunately I'm getting alot of combing during moving scense. Would it be just better to use interlaced?

Hello everyone, Just had a question. I had some HDD failure and had to reinstall everything. Now i am having trouble with ripbot when demuxing a blu-ray. i get a message saying cant open audio track when trying to encode to FLAC. I have uninstalled and reinstalled AviSynth, fdd, and Haali. and redownloaded Ripbot.

Just looking for any help. Im thinking maybe its just a settings error. I will post full error when demuxing is finished.

thanks everyone.

Hi Benjyv, Thanks for your reply. I very rarely use two pass encoding as I prefer Constant Quality.

Sadly encoding StarTrek TNG to progressive is not going to be as simple as picking a standard tff deinterlacer... This series is notorious for telecined content mixed with interlaced content within the same frame.

I just did a quick Google "startrek tng interlaced" and I got lots of hits on people having problems.

Well, in this case you must use a proof method....Have you tried QTGMC ? or others ?

I tried converting rmvb video to mp4 or mkv, and i ran into video/audio sync problem.
What I found was that the converted video ran too fast.

The original video is a 25fps rmvb at 46min 11s in length (69275 frames).
Everything set at default except correcting the aspect ratio by resize it from 720x480 to 852x480.

In the converted video, the video programming would end at 45min 5s; interestingly, from 45min 6s onwards, the last 66 seconds of the video was repeated.
So the total length of the video remains at 46min 11s with the same 69275 frames. But obviously, all the video/audio are getting more and more off sync as it plays.

I had no problems in other conversion such as blu-ray to MKV etc. It's the first time I tried with RMVB video.

Any pointers would be most appreciated.

Question for you all,
I'm backing up my Blurays and add the HD audio track with MKVMerge afterwards.
So is there any way to just grab the video from RipBot by skipping the demuxing of the audio?
Can I modify the ini for that?
Thanks!

Every time I'm encoding to mp4 file for PSP profile, with added subtitle (srt file), ripbot will not output the result and will generate an error. This is the last part of the log file:

Hi Atak, thanks for your reply.

I tried adding convertfps=true as instructed.
The video/audio is now in sync; but the new problem is that the video now looks like stop motion movie with stuttering similar to a 12fps or 15fps video instead of 25fps. I tried putting in fps=25, but it did not help.

I wonder why the convertfps is dropping so many frames.
Anything else I missed? TIA!

For audio use the box with ... same for video. Use the Properties button next to CQ 22 to adjust for source.

Thanks, but in the audio options, there is only AC3 384kbps (and above), which shouldn't be stereo... There is only AAC 192kbps, which is stereo, but i don't want AAC, i want AC3.

Also in the properties button next to CQ22, i don't see anywhere an option to set merange to 24 (nor preset slow).

I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to say? "Grab the video from Ripbot"?

If you just want the video, use MKVmerge to extract. If you don't want to encode the Audio, set the Audio to No Audio.

I still want to make the file smaller so I want to encode the video with Ripbot.
The only time I can set the audio to No Audio is after Ripbot demuxes the audio.
I would like No Audio as the default, can I do that?

I tried: Audio=0 in the .ini but no luck.

Ripbot264 accepts any AVS script as input, so yes, you can use any Avisynth filter ...

Just means you have to write the AVS script (and if you want to preview it use something like AvsPmod) ...

@Hobbe

Is very easy to CUT frames but it is impossible put in place or to increase frames after their cutting http://tracker.hdclub.com.ua/pic/smilies/wink.gif

Anyway try this:

http://www.spirton.com/interframe/

and

http://www.spirton.com/convert-videos-to-60fps/

I didn't try it , but I presume it is smth forced or faked...

Thats the avisynth script i'm trying to use. I paste this line in ripbot: InterFrame(FlowPath="C:\Bin\RipBot264v1.16.5\Tools\AviSynth plugins\InterFrame")
All Interframe dll's are in that folder... When I try to preview the script it just say: Script error: there is no function named "Interframe"

Atak,
Thank you once again!
Bugs related to distributed encoding have been fixed?
So far I can not test here.

I'm really excited about the distributed encoding capabilities of this new version, what a great idea! I've been trying to get it working with no luck. I've watched the tutorial and edited the INI properly but ripbot won't start the client portion when I click start. It loads the server when run but encodes the blu-ray as usual in its own window. I am on a domain so I've shared the temp folder (D:\Temp\RipBot264temp in my case) but don't have the security option to check under network settings as in the video. Any help would be appreciated!

Here is my ini:

[settings]
// TEMP=uses System temp ; C , D ... uses specific partition
StoreTempFilesin=D
KeepJobsQueue=1
---------------------
DefaultProfile=[HIGH 4.0] HD . Progressive
DefaultEncodingMode=CQ
DefaultModeValue=18
---------------------
//Directory must exists!!! D:\movies\ is correct but D:\movies is incorrect!
DefaultOutputPath=D:\DVD\
---------------------
// allowed values are mp4 , mkv , bluray , mkv-divxhd
DefaultContainer=mp4
---------------------
// in GiB (1GiB=1024 MiB) , 0 = no splitting
SplitM2TS=0
---------------------
FastFirstPassin2passMode=1
---------------------
//AnyDVD DVD/HD-DVD/Blu-Ray decryptor will be automatically activated with RipBot264
ExecuteAnyDVD=0
---------------------
//Blu-ray subtitles will be converted to SUB/IDX format for .mkv container. Smaller size and better compatibility with some players.
ConvertSUPtoSUB=1
---------------------
x264LowPriority=1
---------------------
// it will use 64bit version of x264 on 64bit Windows. up to 10% faster encoding speed.
Usex264x64=1
---------------------
// Only for DVD / HD-DVD / BD sources!
UseDistributedEncoding=1

Ok, got a little further. It now starts the encoding client and connects to both the localhost and a remote server I have set up. Unfortunately both of them flip back and forth between encoding and idle. The status flips back and forth between Starting... and Queue (about twice a second). If I open the server it flashes Encoding Terminated... over and over...

Distributed encoding looks awesome but I don't think I should bother trying it with my 2600k desktop with my c2d laptop, doubt the speed difference will be significant.
Pretty excited about the batch feature, it's what everyone has been waiting for.

Shall try it out when I have the time. :)

Got an application error running batch mode doing some AVI to MP4 conversions.

I set it to do all the pre-processing then encode. Doing so, there's no log file.

I am starting to feel a bit mentally handicapped this morning with the Distributed Encode feature. Do I need to have anything running on the other machines? I have managed to get the server and client windows to show an encode in progress on the localhost, but when I try to connect to one of my other two computers it just keeps telling me they are offline. I have checked the network settings on these machines and they are completely open. It seems like there needs to be something running on the other end. Honestly, I have no idea exactly how this works so I am guessing. Anyone successfully get this running that can give me some pointers? I have already watched the tutorial numerous times and yet I just can't get my other computers to start encoding.

Thanks in advance.

@Balthazar2k4:
You have to run EncodingServer on the other machines too!
Because I have RipBot264 installed on all machines I don't know if you need all codecs etc. too.

@Atak_Snajpera:
Thanks for this wonderfull new feature!!!
But I have some questions too:
x264farm had the ability to find out I-Frames and split encodes there.
Because 1st pass had fixed split of movieparts (without overhead of around 240 frames to find I-Frames between) and 2nd pass splitted encodes at the same point, so I don't think Ripbot264 has same ability. Am I wrong? Do you plan to implement it?
What does other machines need? For example, if I use your Denoise-function (based on GPU-Avisynth-Plugin) do I need a capable graphiccard in each machine? or is it only used on first machine?
Because I have some Servers with VMware ESXi and Windows VMs (which doesn't support these GPU-features)

Thanks Wishbringer! I thought that was most likely the issue, but the tutorial video I guess just assumed that. Works like a charm now!

@Atak_Snajpera, I never tire of praising the RipBot. Thank you.

@soneca, you're sure.
Indeed, when the "Shutdown when finished" is selected it is blocking the GUI.

So, first tests are done:
Encoded an episode of 24 minutes with two machines, worked fine.
Then added two further machines and encoded another episode.
Only the first two machines in the list started encoding, the other two stayed idle:
0-14399 frames: first machine
14400-36000 frames: 2nd machine
I expected at least three machines working:
0-14399: first
14400-28799: second
28800-36000: third

Will start another encode of a 4 hours movie, maybe then all machines get a job.
btw, when changing client-list, the new machines encode too. So it's not a problem of the new machines. Only the first two in the list starts jobs here.

Edit:
When disconnecting one of the first two machines, then encode starts at third machine. So it seems there are only two parallel encodes atm.

@wishbringer
client always splits movie into 10 min chunks. for obvious reasons last part must be longer. (we don't want have last chunk to be 1 frame long)

@SONECA
already fixed . i will send you new build tomorrow.

Ok, worked with longer movies, have now around 40 jobs in the Clientqueue. It was the 24 minutes episode that made only two machines to run.

A solution to avoid your scenario would be:
to take length of movie (in frames),
divide by 14400,
round up the result (never below the count of the machines),
divide frames of movie by this result to get a new job length (in frames)
and add modula (frames of movie - new job length * count of jobs) to last part.

Been watching the video about Distributed Encoding and I have a problem. On the client, the local host stays IDLE while RipBot264 is encoding.
Frames and status remain blank.
Of course I can't connect another client. What did I miss?

Ripbot worked perfect on windows 7 64 bit.

maybe it is a sign to forget about xp. it is 2012 and last sp was released almost 4 years ago. windows xp itself is 10 years old. i have no access to xp so i can not do anything with that.

Well at first, everything was working fine with the Encoding Client, but now, at the end of every encode, I get this error:

http://img860.imageshack.us/img860/9034/ripbot264encodingclient.png

After hitting OK, RipBot264 muxes the file just fine & moves on to the next. Wouldn't be so bad, but sitting & watching an encode is beyond boring, please help.

when does this happen exactly? after 'combing chunks' stage or before? it would be very helpful if you could record a video using camstudio or fraps. upload video to www.mediafire.com

when does this happen exactly? after 'combing chunks' stage or before? it would be very helpful if you could record a video using camstudio or fraps. upload video to www.mediafire.com

I happens before combing chunks, just after the 2 machines finish encoding.

I would send you a video cap, but I gave up & just encoded the remaining videos separately, then deleted the sources.

But I will video cap the next time it happens.

Ive seen this problem. The issue is the location of the Temp folder that you are sharing out. It has to be on the machine you are running Ripbot.exe from. After that check your share permissions.

Ok, got a little further. It now starts the encoding client and connects to both the localhost and a remote server I have set up. Unfortunately both of them flip back and forth between encoding and idle. The status flips back and forth between Starting... and Queue (about twice a second). If I open the server it flashes Encoding Terminated... over and over...

@Balthazar2k4:

With the new version I keep receiving a 'floating point' error. I have tried to different sources but receive the same error both times. On WinXP SP3 32 bit.

http://i988.photobucket.com/albums/af10/Sayth_Renshaw/ripboterror.png

I get this problem only with certain(random) files. It's rare, but I just ignore those and don't encode them. I've encoded about 800 files with the new version and got this error about 4 or 5 times. If you have this every time, there must be something on your machine that ripbot doesn't like. (Personally suspect some codec.) Sorry, I don't have any more useful info.

maybe it is a sign to forget about xp. it is 2012 and last sp was released almost 4 years ago. windows xp itself is 10 years old. i have no access to xp so i can not do anything with that.

The last SP might have been 4 years ago, but the last update was two days ago and Microsoft has agreed to fully support XP for two more years because of it popularity.

If you have a old XP install, there are likely to be more issues with everything than with a newer install of almost any OS.

Most people think their NEW computer or their NEW OS has solved their problem, but a lot of times it is just a fresh install has removed the crap that was slowing/crashing the PC.

***At the end of 2011, "OVER half of the PC's had Windows 7 or Vista." That means the rest have XP or such. (Minus Linux boxes.) ***

Trying to encode Kill Bill Vol1 from Bluray to mkv 2pass using distrubuted encoding. On the second pass on the last chunk it stops claiming that the second pass has more frames than the first pass 15288 vs 15287. I tried a cq20 encode and it ran perfectly. Any suggestions to solve this problem ?

Will try a single machine encode to see if that works.

Can you try again with Usex264x64=0

Re-create job after that change!

Trayman
4th January 2012, 12:35
Ok will try that and let you know how it goes.

It's on it's way now indexing...
First pass finished...
Second pass started ETA 57 minutes...
x264_X86 has crashed 2 times already once during the first pass and once during the second on the Vista machine.

Update on the problem.
Using x264x64=0 the problem still exists. I changed the setting on both machines.


The movie has 159288 frames and the last chunk ends on 159288 so one frame is left out in the avs chunk creation it seems.
As for the lost episode i'm trying now has 61968 frames and the last chunk ends at 61967.
So i believe it will generate the same error.

No it didn't. stupid me it counts from 0 and not 1... so the previuos thought is invalid.

Will try direct from the bluray instead of the files on harddrive.

I wish it were that easy, but all other encodes so far have worked just fine. I'm going to try remuxing the DVD into a bluray container & see if that fixes it.

Seriously. I went through the same thing with Atak. The instructions didn't make it clear to me where everything was supposed to be and what was supposed to be run where.
When I changed the location of the temp/ripbot temp folder it started to to work. The problem was the way ripbot wants to use the share. ie. If you make temp folder and share it out, you might be looking at temp/temp/ripbot temp, but you put something slightly diff in the .ini file. Once I got the shares lined up, poof, it was off.

I had a video that I sent Atak of the problem, but my sent files folder is empty her at Doom9.

Sure. NP. But like I said it's rare. It usually happens when I'm encoding some trash old file that's been cut/reEcoded/resized/etc.

I don't know if it's a bug or it's supposed to work this way. The Keep Jobs In Queue feature; It's all or nothing. That is to say, if you clear the check box, ALL jobs disappear including UNprocessed jobs. (When you close/reopen) I expected that if the box was cleared, that jobs would disappear as they were processed, that way you could see only jobs to be processed, or at least when you close/reopen ripbot, only to be processed jobs would remain.

I assume you are talking about the AVCHD option.
Do you really have that many files you want to convert to AVCHD that you need that as an option?

Regardless, if you hit the edit button on any job, you can easily select AVCHD.

When adding a Win2008R2 Server as 4th client, i get this "idle repeat" problem.
I Win2008R2 clients window it says, it can't load avisynth gpu plugin.
Win2008R2 Server has newest drivers (Radeon 6450) and newest DirectX installed, so it should work.
Maybe a security issue with Win2008R2, not able to run dlls from shares?!

The *.MTS files are coming from my video camera so yes, there can be quite a few at a time. I simply changed the extension to *.TS and I was then able to add them all at once as a batch.

@Atak_Snajpera: Could you add the *.MTS format to the batch please?

Thank you!

Some suggestions that at least I would like implemented.

1. Encoding settings/profiles. Lets say i want my movie dvds to be encoded to mkv with the CQ20 settings but my Tv-series dvds to be encoded to mkv with the 2pass settings and an output size 700Mb. Same goes with Bluray movies i want mkv 2pass with the output size of 4480Mb and 720p but my bluray tv episodes i want mkv 2pass with the output size of 1024Mb 720p. So the ability to create these "settings" in an ini like file would be awesome.

2. Subtitle support on dvds just like on blurays.

3. Default subtitle language to be used if available and if they should be forced or selectable.

4. Que managment in the Distributed Encoding Client for debugging purposes. If you have a problem with a certain chunk you don't want to wait several hours to see if the problem is solved. If it's the last part it takes a while to get there.

5. Support for the swedish letters åäö in the output file. Maybe there is a workaround to this that i haven't found without editing the command files.

6. Support for more than one audio track.


Please at least consider some of these suggestions that i think would improve this already awesome app :)

Either try the new client or read the solution a few posts back. It has to do with the share path with the new client attempts to resolve.

As for your avisynth plug in, You are using win2008. I assuming you are using it because it's different, so maybe there is your problem. Different means you get the headache. Good luck. Sorry for no useful advice on that.

@Atak The Kill Bill Vol 1 issue I've been having. I think i found what the problem is. The last frame is empty and i found this in the log

error: FFVideoSource: Insanity detected: decoder returned an empty frame occurred while reading frame 15287


Since I done this encode in "local mode" with the previous release of ripbot264 without a glitch. It ought to be something with the creation of the .avs and .cmd files for second pass. They don't catch the error and remove the last frame.

This is the last entry in the 11.stats file

in:15286 out:15286 type:P dur:2 cpbdur:2 q:16.57 tex:0 mv:0 misc:384 imb:0 pmb:0 smb:3600 d:- ref:0 ;

Since it should go from 144000 to 159287 which makes 15288 frames it only goes from 144000 to 159286 which makes 15287 frames.

I changed the 11.avs file and the 11.cmd files to one less frame and it seems to be running fine.

Will update you on the issue tomorrow when the encode is finished.

*Update* It ran perfectly after changing the number of frames in 11.avs and in 11.cmd. *Update*

@Atak_Snajpera

Look, I do not know if this has to do with something that has already been reported here.
The version of MKVToolnix 5.2.0 in the subfolder Tools differs for this mkvtoolnix-unicode-5.2.0.7z (http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/win32/.dirindex.php?sort=date&order=desc)
I noticed that this latest version is more stable. Especially in regard to MKVExtract.

Turns out I tried to update the YAMB (http://forum.doom9.org/showpost.php?p=1495596&postcount=9535),
and MKVExtractGUI-2 did not work with the version 5.2.0 of MKVextract which is inside the RipBot264.
Only with the version of the Website, which has the same reference, but is different in KB.

Recalling that the MKVExtractGUI-2 did not work with MKVToolnix 5.2.1 as well.

If this does not interfere with anything, then please disregard. I'm just trying to help.
Now I'm using in the RipbBot the same MKVToolnix 5.2.0 of the bunkus.org

I've used this program in the past, and like some of the features it has. Namely subtitle abilities. I'd like to use it again, but a newer(Beta-Generic) version of FFDSHOW is apparently required to use it (4200+). BD rebuilder is currently using 3882. So clearly I'm gonna have to hope, that the new version does not hinder BD rebuilder in some way. Because I see no way of bypassing the version requirement for Ripbot264? Or I can simply spend a lot of time installing and reinstalling different versions of FFDSHOW.

I'm gonna run 4206 and see what happens :)

I get this problem only with certain(random) files. It's rare, but I just ignore those and don't encode them. I've encoded about 800 files with the new version and got this error about 4 or 5 times. If you have this every time, there must be something on your machine that ripbot doesn't like. (Personally suspect some codec.) Sorry, I don't have any more useful info.

I actually have managed to resolve this issue. It's not ripbot. I changed ffdshow from clsid 4206 to version clsid rev 4225 http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow-tryout/files/SVN%20builds%20by%20clsid/generic%20builds/and the same files that created that error before no longer do.

Okay, trying hard to get this to work and have watched the YouTube vid a dozen times - no luck!

Encoding server is running on two machines. Encoding client is running on the same machine as RipBot (beta version). Client is connected to Localhost but not yet to second machine (this doesn't seem to matter). RipBot is using the F:\temp\RipBot264temp for it's temp files and I see a Job1 being created there. This folder is shared to "everyone" R/W and password protection has been turned off <shiver>. The output folder is f:\Ripbot which isn't shared. When I first ran RipBot I got a dialog about the firewall which I accepted - firewall for local machines is turned off anyway.

Each time I launch RipBot I see the job I've created (as expected) but when I kick it off it waits a few seconds and then begins to encode in standalone mode :( When I attempt to Abort RipBot hangs and I must kill the window. What have I done wrong that it's not chunking the video and distributing it? I see nothing being created in the log directory unfortunately :(

Thoughts?

What file are you trying to load? if its an mkv it wont work with distributed encoding. I tried an mkv and was left scratching my head for a while until i realized, i would need to remux it to an m2ts file, so the file could be indexed first.

Not really anything to record.
1) Open RipBot
2) Click Add
3) Select file
--I've tried a ton of different files. .avi mjpg, .avi huffy, .mp4 h.264 none of them work.
4) Open the file
5) Bottom says it demuxes audio - appears to work, since working sound file appears in temp folder.
6) Bottom switches to "Please Wait... Gathering information...", video and audio fields fill.
7) Error pops up immediately.
8) Hit OK.
9) Wait for like 5 minutes to see if anything happens - nothing. A 37 second mjpg in .avi shouldn't take that long to analyze.

And that's it.

Ah ha, okay that's the problem - Argh! I wondered if the format might be the issue :( This is going to be way less useful than I'd hoped but I'll try it on some other files and see how it works.

Thanks!

Edit: Hrm, I can go right from BD media though and skip the step I've been doing to pull the video onto my HD. Assuming I can get the profile where I want it this just might work. I do wish the portion where I choose the stream I want etc. was a little more like the eac3to front-end meGUI uses where I'm presented with .mpls to choose from though since the default stream RipBot chooses and analyzes isn't always correct for me and I have to wait through another analyze cycle. Fingers crossed that this time it works though!

Question: How does RipBot handle Forced Subtitles? I see the option to include specific subs but it's not clear how I can obtain JUST the forced subs that aren't burned in... Alright I may see the answer to this - some of the .CMD files have commands being send to BDsup2Sub and appear to retain the FORCED subs - sweet!

8th January 2012, 03:01
i don't understand why you are so surpried. it clearly says dvd/hddvd/bd sources only! (STRUCTURE)

Well, I may just give up for the night. I put in a BD that I've been working with but which didn't have the first file as being the one I wanted (Toy Story 3). This is an example of a BD "structure" yes? I pointed RipBot at the drive, drilled down to the Stream folder, selected the first M2tS file of the set I wanted, waited while RipBot analyzed the wrong playlist, selected the right one - waited again. Selected the subtitles I wanted and told it I wanted FLAC audio. Mind you the title of this dialog says Blu-Ray structure so I was pretty sure I was getting there!

When that was done "analyzing" and I clicked okay I was at the New Job dialog and it was ripping apart the streams - "Demuxing Selected Streams". I could see a video.mkv file being created and when it hit 100% it went back to 0% and started building the .flac audio file. This all took quite awhile but when done I added a poster to the job, adjusted the CRF and input my desired profile. At last I was ready!

At the main window I could see my job sitting there and I hit the Start button. Nothing occurred in my Encoding Server nor my Encoding Client. Instead RipBot informed me it was Muxing and a few minutes later said it was done :scared:

I looked in the output folder and found a less than 1Gig file that contains sound and a short bit of video. I still had all of the intermediate files to include an 18gig .MKV file that the program built when it was "analyzing".

Looking at the logs (http://pastebin.com/1ZYYrX1Q) it looks like it tried to mux in a video file from one of the previous attempts where it ran standalone and had to be terminated when Abort wouldn't work. That file is now gone. Multiple attempts to get this to run properly by editing the existing job fail and the log file ends telling me it cannot find a .264 file to work with.

I've spent about 3hours on this now and watched the tutorial multiple times. That tutorial video works with .VOB files and leaves me with no clue as to how to work with a BD disk but I'm all ears, especially if there's a way to do this without waiting ages for various background eac3to jobs to run. How is anyone else doing this?

Surely I'm missing something but heck if I know what. I'd like to be able to insert a BD disk into a drive, select the main movie I want to encode, keep forced subs, maybe compress DTS to FLAC keeping 5.1, and fire it off against two different machines. However I see no attempt to Chunk anything and RipBot simply creates a .MKV which I think we've pretty well established cannot be spread across multiple machines.

P.S. Tried this on a BD rip folder sitting on my drive and got the similar results. As soon as I leave the "Blu-Ray structure" dialog it begins Demuxing and creating a video.mkv file. Upon starting the job it encodes my DTS to AC3(?!), and finishes in seconds. the log (http://pastebin.com/SVbfDgh5) again says it cannot find a video.264 file:confused: where and what creates this .264 file? It seemed to be created fine when I was attempting to encode MKV files previously.

@BLKMGK

Pardon, did you really want to say this? Or can I have understood badly?
As mentioned by you in the penultimate paragraph...
"I'd like to be able to insert a BD disk into a drive,..."

First you must do the decrypt of the BD disk by copying it for the HDD using AnyDVD HD or DVDFab, or both.
You must do this to remove all protections.
From the HDD, the RipBot takes care of the encoding.

Atak_Snajpera

@Atak

When I mentioned the "HD", I meant HDD. It was an expression error, sorry.
I've made ​​the correction of "HD" to HDD.
This really interfered in the meaning of my answer, as well as his.

omegaman7
8th January 2012, 18:47
Yes, they decrypt on the fly. Which is quite handy most the time. But there have been discs in the past, that were so plagued with protection schemes, they could not be done on the fly. Which is one of the reasons ripping to disk is a function.

BLKMGK
8th January 2012, 18:49
anydvd hd and dvdfab can decrypt on fly. you are wasting time if copy first whole disc to hdd.

Correct, this is exactly how I generally work with BD - I don't first rip them unless the formatting of the streams is such that I cannot easily figure out which is which... fingers crossed that one day BD Menu support will be available on software I'm willing to run :)

Anyway, thoughts as to why my trying to pull directly from a BD didn't correctly parse to multiple machines?

jandor
8th January 2012, 18:59
I find much more safe when I send to the HDD.

BLKMGK
9th January 2012, 02:25
When you work from the HDD and have to do multiple iterations to try and find the right stream or you want to pull multiple versions\create a multi-path MKV then yes working from the HDD can speed things. you go through just one painful copy and then it's done - Toy Story 3 and Source Code would be two examples of this IMO. However generally I'm just pulling off one obvious video stream to a MKV, reencoding it, then putting that result and the audio(s) into a MKV container with chapters and maybe forced subs, sometimes director's soundtrack. In that case it's much faster to not copy the entire BD - having done this a few hundred times I've got it down. What I'd like to do is try to see if I can speed up encoding, I use pretty high quality and would like to try and get more than the 16-22FPS I get now. Spreading this load to another machine that's idle would be helpful if it's possible, I've just yet to figure it out for BDs, has anyone?

Omega - I've yet to find a disk that AnyDVD-HD won't properly decrypt if the Slysoft folks have seen it. New releases often lag a little but I'm okay with that since it can take awhile for those to hit the used market anyway so I seldom have them the first day anyway. Can you give any examples? I'd be interested to see if I've seen them already. Forced subs and goofy language streams are what get me most often, same with the streams that have "extras" like one of the X-Men movies I bought when it first came out. After waiting forever to encode I found it was certainly NOT the movie version I wanted :P

omegaman7
9th January 2012, 02:32
I'm afraid I don't recall the titles I had to rip to disk. They were DVD's though. Dvd shrink had trouble working with the disk, unless it were ripped via anydvd first. I don't use dvd shrink exactly though. I use it for viewing purposes only. (also note that I backup full discs, not just the main movie).
I just got into the habit of ripping straight to the disk. Since I have 13+ terabytes of hard drive space, I don't need to worry about it :p

Sorry I couldn't be more help :(

I have a problem with subtitles. I want to rip a bluray movie to a MP4 container with subtitles.

I load my bluray into RipBot264 and in the job1 folder it has the sup files. I thought it would of converted them to sub files? in the ini file it has the following section:

---------------------
//Blu-ray subtitles will be converted to SUB/IDX format for .mkv container. Smaller size and better compatibility with some players.
ConvertSUPtoSUB=1
---------------------

I have also tried to download some SRT subs from a 1080p rip and they always turn out to be really smaller on the final encode take a look at the screenshot below:

So I have been barreling through encodes with the distributed encode feature and finally sat down to watch my first movie and noticed some problems. Basically the movie has either stuttering or pixellation at almost every 10 minute mark (14400 frame break point). The movies were all encoded at CQ and I have noticed issues with some, but not all of the movies I have done thus far. This is clearly a problem for me using the distributed model if these are my results. Has anyone else noticed this? I am trying an updated client and app that Atak posted previously to see if that fixes the issues.

UPDATE: Tried the latest RipBot264.exe end EncodingClient.exe posted by Atak and the problem still exists. My test movie encode had pixellation at the very first 10 minute segment point. I guess it is back to one machine encoding for now. Cool idea, but needs the kinks worked out.

I just watched the tutorial video and it look awesome! I haven't tried it yet I will try it with my next encode to see if it works for me :)

Never had this problem pixellation.
For those videos with a lot of action, or with many sudden movements, change to CQ=18 so you can avoid the pixellation in any encoding.
Romance, drama, etc.. can use CQ = 20 and even 22.

Thanks Jandor. The pixellation or stuttering I am referring to is not a direct result of the encode itself. I am using the new Distributed Encode feature to split the encode between my 980x and 2500k. The problems arrive at the split points (which are every 14400 frames). When the "chunks" are reassembled the transitions are not always fluid and there were clearly issues with the encoding of the final frame in the 1st segment or the first frame of the 2nd segment and so forth. It appears to be a problem in the split itself and I am not really sure how that can be remedied. I have gone back to VidCoder for now.

Thanks.

I understand, this is also one of the reasons for the pixellation.
I also can not say more because I still could not test this new process.

balthazar can you send short sample where pixelation occurs? most likely ffms2 has still some bugs. does pixelation occur for specific source (MPEG2 , VC1 , AVC). alternatively i could try to use dss2() instead of ffvideosource()

I already miss the old profile interface you had before. The old bars and drop down boxes with labels made it easy for a noob like me to google what each of those settings did so I could make own profile setting.

Good thing I did have them made before so I just put them into the new version. Should still work right? Same old commands?

Yup, would most certainly agree, I do miss the old way of creating profiles.

Any chance on finding a way to merge the old & new method of creating profiles?

I have the latest RipBot and find it useful for converting mkvs that will not play on my TV that plays MKV from USB - I guess it's just a bit too fussy with some settings.

Anyway, it works perfectly except for one file where it reports Exception EConverter

Any information on said file? Maybe it contains petrakian verse or french drama?
