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()

Atak, I will try and get something to you in a couple days as I will be out of town until Thursday evening. I will need to encode a new test subject and then clip out the problem. As for source, well, I am not sure if there is some correlation or not. I have tried both VC-1 and AVC with equal effect.

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 the TV just a bit too fussy with some MKV settings.

Anyway, it works perfectly except for one file where I get Exception EConvertError in module RipBot264.exe at 000093E2, "is not a valid floating point value. Previous versions did not report this error and simply hung gathering information.

The file seems to be normal and plays correctly apart from the TV with built-in mkv player.

The frame size maybe causing the problem as it is 1802x1080. The correct aspect ratio in this case 1.75:1, so it probably should be 1890x1080.

First though, I need to open the file in RipBot264.

Any help would be appreciated.

So are you on Windows XP? What version of ffdshow did you install? Should be a version higher than 4225 on XP.

It's not my encode. According to imdb it should be 1.75:1 or 1890x1080.

Could the problem be the odd width/height ratio?

Do we have to use CQ for distributed encoding or can we use 2 pass encoding as well? I'm trying to get distribution going but when I connect to the second computer; it keeps saying Encoding Started... and then like 5 seconds later it says Encoding Terminated... Doesn't seem to want to send the data over to the second computer


*EDIT*
Okay for people having issues where encoding goes from Encoding to Idle:
1. Both computers MUST BE IN THE SAME HOMEGROUP(for some reason it doesn't work if it's not)
2. Check that both O/Ses run the same Bit version (i.e. if one of your computers is 32bit and your hosting server is 64bit, you will have to force the 64 bit server to use the 32bit version of x264)

1. did you use updatd files from soneca's post? what happens if you share ripbot264temp folder with Guest (READ/WRITE) instead of EVERYONE?

james2432
12th January 2012, 13:20
Yes I tried the update, no I did not try Guest, but I did have everyone read/write
also when I tried 2-pass encoding on sequence 5 it said invalid first frame (empty) and kept looping and the sequence before that only processed 1 out of 14400 frames, so far CQ is working

Basically ripbot264temp folder MUST be accessible for all computers . You can manually check if you can see content of ripbot264temp folder via explorer.

I am curious, has anyone actually looked at their encodes thoroughly after using distributed encoding? I didn't and only realized after doing numerous movies that they each had glitches in different 10 minutes spots. I find it hard to believe that I am the only person with the problem, but then again nothing would surprise me.

i just tried encoding an mkv file to an avchd with ripbot.

i forgot to change resolution to 1920x1080 from 1920x800, and ripbot told me, but then it totally kicked me out of ripbot and i had to add the file all over again.

i couldnt just go back and change resolution , all information was gone


this didnt happen in last ripbot???


it didnt save the info in ripbot temp :-(

Atak, I just did an encode and the results look very positive. The movie is over 2 hours and I checked each 10 minute segment and all were seamless. I will do another one and report the results. So far, so good. Thanks!

Update: The second movie I tested has some pixelated corruption at the 2nd ten minute break. I have encoded the same movie without the distributed encoding option and the corruption does not exist.

Unfortunately the issue is still there for me at the 10min mark, its slightly better now in some scenes but still quite bad in others obviously its where the chunks are joined.

I take it back about the old UI. After looking at the x264 settings page on the MEGUI wiki I can see the benefits of those x264 presets compared to my own. Been doing alot of reading on it and am now testing to compare the results with my own profile.

For starters im trying placebo + film setting for my SG Atlantis blu ray stuff. The source is very grainy but I want to get rid of it. Just to be sure Grain Tune is for PRESERVING grain right? I should just continue using Film Tune and your Denoise setting under properties right?

Im trying really hard to be efficient with it and try to squeeze as much quality out of just a 2 pass 1024 bitrate setting while keeping 720p. You guys think im wasting my time trying to get quality out of that low of bitrate?

then it sounds like you don't really have much of an issue at all other than a couple of your downloaded files just having some problems. prob not something you should be bothering atak with, especially if you can solve it with a simple remux

Hmm, interesting, I had many problems with AVC. I am trying it now with a test piece. I think the I-Frame idea is going to be the solution and "Bravo!" Atak for the solution. I hope it works as I would like to get some extra speed on the "Very Slow" preset :D

Update: First test was good on "Superfast". Run it through on "Very Slow" now.

Update: Superfast was 80fps with distributed encoding and Very Slow is 20fps. Just my 980x alone on Very Slow is 12.5fps. The 2500k is getting 8.5fps. I really hope this works!

Update: Well, two encodes down (both AVC) and all seems good. Need to dig up some MPEG-2 and VC1 discs to test.

@Atak_Snajpera:
...
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?

Thanks

Only minor issue: This behavior trusts I-Frame settings of source material. x264 theoretically could choose other I-Frames in unsplitted encode.
Same with bitratesettings in 2-pass while splitting. At moment each chunk get same bitrate, regardless of content.
In unsplitted encode bitrate is distributed over whole movie, now bitrate is only distributed over chunk.
Shouldn't have big effect, except in movies with changing content: Maybe "2001" with lots of black screens

That's why i didn't use smaller chunks. For CQ mode I could have used even 1 min chunk but for 2-pass that would be a disaster ;) 10 min seems to be optimal for both modes.
Also I think that x264farm works differently. I suppose that main computer does decoding for all servers.

Atak, any chance that distributed encoding could be made to work with MKV? I have my entire collection ripped to MKV (300+ BDs) using MakeMKV and it would be nice to utilize distributed encoding without having to re-rip. If I have to rip my entire collection over it might actually be faster to just use my main machine to run the encodes. Not complaining, just curious if it might even be an option in the future.

You shouldn't need Surcode to strip out the core track. Are you using the "-core" switch? You don't want to re-encode, just use the core track only.

Should look something like this:

Do the demuxing and add the new audio track to RipBot264. You might need to pick the correct language on the audio track before you start.

If you want to drop the DTS to a lower bitrate then you will need Surcode as that will be required for transcoding. My suggestion is that if you want lower bitrate DTS, just switch to 640kbps AC3. It is virtually impossible to tell the difference. In fact, you can do a straight transcode from DTS-HD MA to AC3 in a single step with eac3to.

It is actually a very simple program to run. If you are on Windows (which you would need to be to get it to run), pop open a command line window and check out the wiki guide I linked at the top of the page for instructions. It is an extremely versatile, powerful program and the basis for many encoding GUIs. Look here for even more info: http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=125966

I think that is a pretty obvious answer. To put it in perspective, my i7-980x is running at 4ghz and can churn through BluRay rips about 50% faster than my i5-2500k at 4.8ghz. The more threads you can throw at x264 the better. I would say something like an i7-2600k or i7-3820 would be the sweet spot for performance per dollar.

Is there a way to add this as an option between each mode? On longer movies, the 10 minutes isn't that bad, but on shorter tv shows it seems like I don't get much benefit out of this because of the larger chunk sizes.

My computers vary greatly in power, 8-Core FX, 2 quad Phenoms and a quad Phenom II. I use CQ and would love to have smaller 1 minute chunk sizes.

Also, if I have more than one file in my queue why doesn't it chunk all of the files at once? This way when encode 1 is finished the other computers aren't just idle.

I understand distributed is new, and I really do love it, but I'm just curious about those situations.

Hi, I am trying the latest version to copy the video as is but to include the forced subs as in Avatar BD but no luck. I select the main movie, only include chapters no audio for now, select subs to build in picture, the subs get converted and gathering information comes up. Then I select copy stream from profiles, select AVCHD for container output. When I start the process it goes into muxing for 24 mins and it's complete. Movie looks great but no subs. What am I doing wrong? I don't want to encode the movie as it streams natively to my PS3. Thank you for any suggestions.

I think to see the difference you must have a good audio system.

Not only a good audio system, but also an audience room specifically designed not to disturb the audio too much.

Any average furnished living room hardly meets the requirements for a room where you can separate AC3 from dts in bitrates usual for DVDs. All the furniture has its own resonances.

HD audio is mainly advertizing, not usually additional value. Especially because HD audio is subsequently wrecked by audio watermarks.

Believe I found a litlle bug in the encoding client. If the connection times out for some reason the connect button stays disabled. In my case it was the first run of the latest encoding client and it wasn't allowed in the firewall. So the connction timed out. The connect button should be enabled after the connection timed out so you can reconnect after fixing the problem with the connection. Had to enter the ip in server 3 to be able to start the encode on the second machine.

I sort of figured as much, but I never had it do that before for so long. Also, I am getting more "Starting..." chunk hang-ups than I was getting before. I am sure it has to do with the fact there are so many more chunks in CQ mode now. Simply increases the odds of a hang-up.

I use the "Very Slow" preset with the "Film" tune. I also use CQ 17.

Definitely having more problems with "Starting..." hang-ups after the CQ split change. Had an encode hang overnight when it stalled on a chunk. Basically turned what should have been a 2-3 hour encode into almost 8 hours.

@rc71 I had the same problem with some of my dvds. It's dgindex that generates that error. It has something to do with invalid characters in the filenames.
I used ifoedit to remove some streams and made a new ifo file. After that it ran smoothly. Don't know what it reacted to only that my tinkering solved the problem. Will take a look again at my copy of A Clockwork Orange to see if i can isolate the error.

For now I've rolled back to the release on the 16th. There seems to be fewer problems with that version, at least for the encodes that I've been doing. I'll check out Leaving Las Vegas and Willy Wonka after those encodes are done and report back.

Is there a way to keep the audio compressed? It's so loud after using RipBot. No matter which output I choose, wav or flac, there are parts of the movie that are too loud (the action) and there are parts in the movie that are too soft (the dialog).

Also, does anyone know why I'm getting demux issues ever since the release of these newer versions of RipBot? It's failing in the demux due to an error encountered in EAC3TO. Let me see if I can generate a log. The logs I had were lost when I tried this newest version.

Here's what I get:

That's funny. I asked the opposite question I find that after recoding, the volume isn't as loud as before. No one had any ideas on how to boost the volume.

thanks. i think you are right. When I looked at the temp folder there were tons of files when the decoded DVD only had a handful I think it's getting confused with alternate track and commentary and trying to remake entire DVDs out of each version. The temp folder was definitely bigger the original DVD.

Maybe you have set some options in "FFDshow Audio Settings"
FFDShow for example defaults to 2.0 Sound by installation and downsamples DTS 7.1 to Flac conversion, so you get 2.0 as result, even if you want 5.1 AC3 as result.
Just go to FFDshow audio decoder settings and disable any modification.

@rc71 I think I have isolated the problem with the "Couldn't open input file in HIDE mode! Existing" error on some movies. The Exorcist is one of the movies I have that gives this error.

When the CombineVOBs.cmd is ran and it should be one large vob file it instead makes two vob files and the VOBgetinfo is missing the filename to get the info from.

It looks like this:
"F:\-=01 RipBot264 DVD-Settings=-\Tools\eac3to\eac3to.exe" -log="G:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job2\vobinfo.txt"

Instead of like this:
"F:\-=01 RipBot264 DVD-Settings=-\Tools\eac3to\eac3to.exe" "G:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\VTS_01_1_001.VOB" -log="G:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\vobinfo.txt"

The input file is missing in the command.

I don't now why PgcDemux generates more than one file.
The inner workings of RipBot264 is unknown to me but I think that without vobinfo.txt it can't demux the files the way it supposed to or maybe the filename/names are missing there too somehow.

Maybe Atak can shed some light on this issue. I will try another movie that doesn't work to see if it also generates multiple vobs from pgc demux.

Update on the latest Distributed Encoding release. I did a test with Dances With Wolves and at nearly 4 hours with subtitles, I thought that would be a good acid test. Unfortunately, it did not pass the test. I found a few splits that were corrupt with pixellated frames.

I was wondering if you could implement a sorting feature where you can change the encoding job order by adding a 'sort by length', 'sort by size' etc kind of feature. It'd be like a priority where the smallest sized files or the shortest length files get encoded first while the bigger files are left for later?

@rc71 I think found the cause to our problem. The two movies I've been having the problem with have more than one VOB ID and therefore are combined to more than one VOB with PgcDemux. Both are by the way released by WB in 2001 The Exorcist Directors Cut and Clockwork Orange. The main movie is split over 4 VOB ids. The first probobly being the menu. The second and the third being the main movie and the fourth being something else (Haven't checked).

Since PgcDemux generates two combined VOBS instead of one like it should RipBot264 isn't able to create the files like it should. Maybe this will be addressed in future releases of RipBot264 but until then this is what i did.

1. Download VIDChanger from http://download.videohelp.com/jsoto/dvdtools.htm
2. Choose your troublesome ifo.
3. Choose your Output folder and hit PROCESS!
4. Wait for it to finish.
5. Use RipBot264 on the modified VOB files.
6. Wait for RipBot264 to finish.

You can check the original VOBs with PgcDemuxer to see if the movie has more than one VOB id and if it has the solution above should make it work fine.
This worked on Clockwork Orange will now check The Exorcist.

If this works on both my movies and rc71's maybe VIDChanger should be implemented into the processing of the VOBs before the combine of the VOBs.
Will let you know how it goes with it.
Both movies worked flawlessly during the add process.
The converted file contained no unwanted parts just like it should.

Went through my movies and found four more movies released by WB

Deep Blue Sea 1999 More than one VOB id
The Green Mile 2000 More than one VOB id
Outbreak 1998 One VOB id Works!
Copycat 1999 One VOB id

DVD release years not Movie release years :)
Will check theese to see if the have the same structure as Clockwork and Exorcist.

Will let you know how it goes.

I've been a user of RipBot264 for years and have not a single complaint. The only thing I haven't been able to solve is how to encode E-AC3 from TrueHD or DTSMA to preserve 7.1 channels and keep the file sizes small. That's a discussion for another day...

My latest problem is trying to get the distributed encoding to work. I was very excited to see this as an option to get around the typical 2 hour 720p encodes.

While I know it's overkill to have a home domain, I have for many many years and it serves me well. I have Windows 7 desktops and recently changed to a Windows 2008 r2 server, up from Win2k3.

I've tried for the better part of a week to get the client/server model to work with no luck. I always get the ENCODING/IDLE "dance" at start-up. I think the automatic discovery of the RipBot264temp is my biggest problem. Whenever I share the folder, it is shared as \\COMPUTERNAME\RipBot264temp on whichever workstation I choose. Whenever the programs tries to access the folder it is looking for \\DOMAIN\RipBot264temp.

I've tried many hacks to try to allow it to find the share correctly, even creating folders on the server and trying to make \\DOMAIN\RipBot264temp a valid path. I have yet to get into DFS pointers which may work. I know this was designed with HomeGroups in mind, and I'm guessing the HomeGroup and Domain are picked up in the same fashion and that is why his happens, but I wondered if it would be possible for a configuration option where perhaps you could say the share is located on the same IP address as Server X.

I'm not sure that I completely understand if each workstation is supposed to have it's own share, or if one is shared by all workstations.

Is there any way to make this work without a HomeGroup? I would be more than willing to help out with any beta testing and give a donation.

Any help is much appreciated! Maybe I'm just being stupid about this... :cool:

I updated the ripbot264.exe and encodingclient.exe from 10622. I deleted the jobs I had saved and created a new job. My ini file has StoreTempFilesin=C. I shared the RipBot264temp and verified it is accessible. When I start a job it still seems to be pointing at a domain path if I monitor the thread for EncodingServer.exe. I posted a log below, renaming my computer running RipBot264 to COMPUTER, the server hosting the domain to SERVER, and the domain name to DOMAIN. I am only using the localhost server for this test.

Ok back to the drawing board. It seems that PgcDemux ignores the lack of the "b" option in the command line and splits by VOB Id anyway.
So removing it while combining the vobs still generates one file per VOB Id. The same result occurs when using the Gui and the "One file per VID" is unchecked. Will take a look at the source code for PgcDemux and see if it can be updated to work like it should.

In the meantime VIDChanger will have to do.

@Trayman,

I always try to separate the main movie (DVD), and so I had never any problem with the PGCDemux.
For me it works perfectly.

Trayman
22nd January 2012, 08:08
@jandor I think you missunderstod me. The main movie is choosen but it has several VOB Ids. I'm not talking about the filenames (VTS_01_1.VOB, VTS_01_2.VOB and so on). I'm talking about the inner structure of the VOBs. In the case of "The Exorcist" the main movie is contained in seven VOBs VTS_01_1.VOB - VTS_01_7.VOB. Inside those VOBs it has three PGC (#01 The main movie (02:06:44.23), #02 The menu ? (00:00:12.20) and #03 Something else (00:01:51.14)). PGC #01 is clearly the movie so no problem there. The problem is that PGC #01 has two different VOB Ids (VOB Id = VID) and
VID 01 (01)--> 00:00:12.20 clearly PGC #02,
VID 02 (02)--> 00:52:02.04 The first 52 minutes of the movie that generates the first VOB outputed by PgcDemux,
VID 03 (03)--> 01:14:42.19 The remaiuning 75 minutes of the movie that generates the second VOB outputed by PgcDemux
VID 04 (04)--> 00:01:51.14 clearly PGC #03

VID 02 and 03 should be VID 02 (02)--> 02:06:44.23 The entire movie length.

There is an option in PgcDemux to create one file per VID this is by default turned off. Which should generate one cutom VOB but it doesn't. It still creates one per VID regardless if "One file per VID" is checked or not or if the "b" option is supplied through the commandline or not. This is clearly a bug in Pgcdemux which in turn makes RipBot264 not function properly.

But running it through VIDChanger makes one VID 01 (01)--> 02:08:49.07 of th prvious four VIDs and PgcDemux generates one VOB like it should.

I tried ripping bluray subtitles from a bluray. It ripped the .sup file but when I looked in the .mkv the subtitles were not merged into it.
I manually had to rip the sup file to srt and mux it in with SupRip and mkvmerge from the .sup file that was created by ripbot

Jimmy,I'll be interested to hear how you get on , I don't use home group either and have a Windows home server 2011, which is on 24/7 so old like to make use of it for distributed encoding overnight.

I've been a user of RipBot264 for years and have not a single complaint. The only thing I haven't been able to solve is how to encode E-AC3 from TrueHD or DTSMA to preserve 7.1 channels and keep the file sizes small. That's a discussion for another day...

My latest problem is trying to get the distributed encoding to work. I was very excited to see this as an option to get around the typical 2 hour 720p encodes.

While I know it's overkill to have a home domain, I have for many many years and it serves me well. I have Windows 7 desktops and recently changed to a Windows 2008 r2 server, up from Win2k3.

I've tried for the better part of a week to get the client/server model to work with no luck. I always get the ENCODING/IDLE "dance" at start-up. I think the automatic discovery of the RipBot264temp is my biggest problem. Whenever I share the folder, it is shared as \\COMPUTERNAME\RipBot264temp on whichever workstation I choose. Whenever the programs tries to access the folder it is looking for \\DOMAIN\RipBot264temp.

I've tried many hacks to try to allow it to find the share correctly, even creating folders on the server and trying to make \\DOMAIN\RipBot264temp a valid path. I have yet to get into DFS pointers which may work. I know this was designed with HomeGroups in mind, and I'm guessing the HomeGroup and Domain are picked up in the same fashion and that is why his happens, but I wondered if it would be possible for a configuration option where perhaps you could say the share is located on the same IP address as Server X.

I'm not sure that I completely understand if each workstation is supposed to have it's own share, or if one is shared by all workstations.

Is there any way to make this work without a HomeGroup? I would be more than willing to help out with any beta testing and give a donation.

Any help is much appreciated! Maybe I'm just being stupid about this... :cool:

Hi Atak,

Is there any chance you could add some 2.0 AC3 options for MKV (or even just 2.0 192kbps)? I realise that bitrate for bitrate AAC is superior, however my blu ray player only supports AC3 or DTS within MKV files.

Ronski
23rd January 2012, 20:19
Hi Atak, could you add the option to sleep when finished encoding, or even just the option to run a BAT file will suffice please?

Can't use the Sleep when idle option in W7, as MS can't seem to work out that 4 cores running at 100% is not idle, and it just goes to sleep whilst encoding, so i have to disable sleep when using Ripbot.

Hi, Atak,

thx for you work at first.
Please, why is ripbot v1.17 auto-renaming my Sony camcorder´s files from "anything.m2ts" to just "video.mkv" ?
Before it worked as expected from test1.m2ts to test1.mkv, test2.m2ts to test2.mkv etc...
I have usually 16 files from one recorded miniDVD, its boring to rename them back manualy.
Could you fix it for me, please?

24th January 2012, 06:42
@james2432, that's correct. RipBot demuxes the audio, subtitles and video out into individual files for re-encoding. You can use mkvmerge to combine them again into a mkv container if that's what you want.

BTW, MPC-HC plays mkv with .sup files without any problems. I'm not sure about media players like Dune or Popcorn Hour.

soneca

The Dune HD plays perfectly subtitles(.sup) embedded in the mkv created with RipBot.

Hello,

which profile would you prefer for encoding DVD-series like "Dexter" to mkv?

In the past I used [MAIN 4.0] HD but I can't hardly see any difference in the resulting files compared to [MAIN 3.0] SD, both with CQ 20 which produces smaller mkv's.

Any suggestions?

I'm a bit confused why the distributed part is not working right now. I'm running the latest code from the 20th. I just finished four encodes using 16.5 to finish up the VC-1 encodes.

I'm starting encoding the entire blu-ray series of Lost. 36 blu-ray discs (yea me :( )
According to Blu-ray.com, it's encoded in 1080i AVC.

The queue was completely empty. I just put the first disc in the queue. Queued up the four episodes. Told it to start, but it's encoding only by itself and not through the distributed tool. I've tried stopping and starting it a few times to no avail. So I'm at a bit of a loss. It was working a couple of days ago. Any ideas?

Edit: It started working again. Cue Twilight Zone Theme

The xbox360 does not support 5.1 sound using h.264. Only WMV files are supported with 5.1 sound. If you want to use h.264, it's stereo only with the 360. There are lots of threads on the Internet that spell this out.

My suggestion is to buy a Western Digital Live Media Hub and watch anything you like at that point. The 360 is not a very good media playback device.

I am a huge fan of Ripbot, and recently updated to 1.17.0.

2 questions:-

Can't for the life of me figure out how, and what is really the use for the distributed encoding...........:o

And also, checking the shutdown box, no longer works for me, I had it checked after I had installed 1.17.0, which should have turned the pc off approx 1 am, but to my annoyance, it was still idling along at 7 am, so it had be on unnecessarily, for 6 hours, it had finished all the encodes, but didn't turn off :(

Might have to go back to 1.16.5...no problems with that version.

There was a bugfix update that cured this problem, there may be another bugfix update newer than the one below, have a look back over the last few pages.

I'd like a sleep option, others have also asked, but we get no feed back at all!

PS Distrubuted encoding allows you to make use of multiple computers on your home network, therefore decreasing encoding time. As to the how, the video guide is only half the instructions, you need to have the encoding server running on the other PC.

Added: MKV can also be used in Distributed Encoding Mode.
Changed: 1 min chunks for CQ mode instead of 10 min
Fixed: not working 'Shutdown when Finished'
Fixed: error message in batch mode. Broken video file will be automatically discarded

Fixed: corruption at the begining of the chunk. (Encoding Client will first analyze video and then prepare chunks according to I-Frame (key frame) position.)

Jimmy,I'll be interested to hear how you get on , I don't use home group either and have a Windows home server 2011, which is on 24/7 so old like to make use of it for distributed encoding overnight.

Still no luck. I've been trying to get this to work non-stop a little each day. Even though there is mention in one of the fix releases of the domain name changed to computer name, my version of the encodingserver.exe insists on using the domain name instead of the computer name. I've verified and re-verified I have the fixed version of the encodingclient.exe and the RipBot executable. I've also recreated a job from scratch with the new versions.

I've been trying to point the call for the domain to a share on the server hosting the domain with some "trickery" but it won't work.

I feel like I'm 99% there, but this one glitch is preventing me from having any fun with this! :confused:

I just want to publicly thank ATAK for the new version. I will hit my 4,000th encode in a day or so. I could NEVER have done it without the batch mode and the 25fps -> 23.976 correction. BTW, I'm having much FEWER sync problems with new audio codec.

I could not figure out how to do batch encodes for the ripped blu-rays I have on the hard drive. I'm doing the 123 episodes of the Lost TV Series right now. It would be nice to have RipBot batch convert every video on the disk that is greater then a certain time, with certain settings. Like CQ, Subtitles, Denoise, etc. As it is, I'm adding each episode one at a time.

There was a bugfix update that cured this problem, there may be another bugfix update newer than the one below, have a look back over the last few pages.

I'd like a sleep option, others have also asked, but we get no feed back at all!

Hi Atak,

when I add a job, select as output filename "testöäü.mkv", the name of the file is "test÷õ³.mkv". BTW, I´m using german Windows.

My job1_MuxFiles.cmd:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\RipBot264\tools\mkvtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe" -o "D:\testöäü.mkv" --compression 0:none --title "testöäü" --default-duration 0:25fps "D:\temp\RipBot264temp\video.264" --compression 0:none --language 0:ger --aac-is-sbr 0:1 "D:\temp\RipBot264temp\audio.aac"

The problem is, the job1_MuxFiles.cmd is saved in ANSI, but should be saved in DOS Codepage. I edited the job1_MuxFiles.cmd with EDIT from MS-DOS, saved, doubleclick and voilà, the filename is testöäü.mkv.

I'm assuming you've done the standard update FFshow stuff? If you haven't that may solve your problem. That being said, what are you converting them from? In the past I've had horrific problems with AC3 -> AAC, which apparently isn't that uncommon. When that happens I have to break down and get out MeGUI. That tool using NeroAAC which I find usually solves my sound issues. Usually. Ironically, check out my post that follows...

I have a small sound problem. I have 12 files with dual audio. About half have no problem, but the other half have NO sound when encoded. Just for kicks I've tried both tracks and no sound. The file that is produced says there is a sound file, but there is no sound. Even in the preview there is no sound. But the original source files all read the same. One track is AC3 6 ch and the other is AC3 2 ch, but again no sound in the encoded file. Needless to say the originals seem fine. Does anyone have any suggestions?

This is very similar to my problem. I'am trying to recode for android. source is mp4 avc/aac 6 ch. yes i have lastest ffdshow.
The no audio, in my case, comes from when ripbot264 demuxs the source. If you check the working directory and try to play the demuxed file there is no sound. ripbot264 encodes this 'blank' file ending up with a video file with no sound yet it does contain an audio track.

I'm about to start doing Battlestar Galactica from blu-ray. Seasons 1 and 3 are VC-1 and 2 and 4 are AVC. I'll start with seasons 2 and 4 until you have figured out what is causing denoising to cause VC-1 encoding corruption.

Well not being able to play the demuxed file was the fault of media player HC. However I was still getting bad aac files, just not the one in the job folder. It happens when you select normalize. Here is the log file for when the error occurs.
It's working great as long as I dont try to normalize the audio.

All 22 of the temporary folders are still on the G: drive, how can I get RipBot to see them again?

I am using the latest release as of February 3. I'm receiving corruption almost every minute. It's odd, sometimes I'm getting corruption every minute, other times, it might be clean for a minute before occurring again. This occurred while encoding Cold Mountain which is AVC:
http://www.blu-ray.com/movies/Cold-Mountain-Blu-ray/33169/

But this corruption does not seem to have occurred with Lost which is also AVC.

Here is the link for the first 90 seconds of Cold Mountain. You can see the corruption at 1:00. I am using denoising on both Could Mountain and Lost:
http://www.mediafire.com/?3xoxqhhe848d3w9

I will upload the first 3 minutes and 30 seconds of the video.mkv source as well. I'll edit this post when it's uploaded as well.

I noticed something when using ffmpeg to cut out the piece of the video.mkv file. I'm receiving an error under linux:
[matroska @ 0x97db240] Application provided invalid, non monotonically increasing dts to muxer in stream 0: 83 >= 42
Under the latest nightly build of ffmpeg for windows I'm receiving a different error:
[matroska @ 00000000045BB010] pts < dts in stream 0
av_interleaved_write_frame(): Invalid argument

Finding this ticket:
http://www.avcodec.org/trac/ffmpeg/ticket/960
At the bottom it says:
As you've already noticed, the timestamps in this stream are not valid. The duplicate timestamps happen many, many times in this file. The file is broken.

So I'm going to cut the 3:30 seconds from the original m2ts source and upload it.

edit: Here is the 3:30 seconds of Cold Mountain from the m2ts file. I used mediafire.com this time :) and dgsplit (anyone know if dgsplit is compatible with unix split?)

I took the exact same job, just removed denoising, and the problem is still there.

I'm leaning towards there being a demuxing problem since the video.mkv file shows errors with ffmpeg.

I'm still trying to get the original source uploaded. I'll update my original post once it's done.

edit:
I guess the best test would be to take the same job and open it under 16.5 to see what happens.

edit2: Re-encoded using 16.5 and everything looks fine. Perhaps the issue lies when splitting the source? I have no idea at this point? Please let me know if there is anything else I can provide.

That did it. I used mkvmerge to remove everything except the video and the ONE English track. Ripbot encoded it fine. I'm not sure what happened, but does seem to be an AC3 -> AAC issue. Checking the sound fine that is extracted, there was some audio in it. Almost sounded like the LFE channel, but that is all. There has been channel mapping problems before with AC3 so this might be a version of it.

Hi,

Not sure if its possible (although I'm sure it could be), qpfile support for AVCHD output would be awesome. At the moment I'm creating a qpfile with Shon3i's ChapterGen tool, placing it in the RipBot job** folder and manually adding the --qpfile switch to the encoding command. Would be great if RipBot could do this automatically for AVCHD output.

While trying to convert a DVD; I'm hitting the generic "Couldn't open input file in HIDE mode!" error from dgindex. Like earlier posters have noted this is occurring because the command line argument for the input file is missing. However; while some other posts talk about DVDs where PgcDemux is generating multiple vobs during the combine stage - in this case only one very small vob is created. Based on a manual run of PgcDemux is appears that this occurs because Ripbot264 is not passing the "-pgc" argument so it defaults to 1. In the case of this movie there are four PGCs. The first three are trivial lengths while 4 represents the actual movie.

Is Ripbot264 expected to detect the correct PGC (perhaps by looking for the longest one) in this scenario or is the omission of "-pgc" deliberate and something else is going wrong? (In this particular case I worked around the issue manually by using PgcDemux directly to create a new single vob and then processing that with RipBot264).

BTW I'm using version 1.17.0.

Thanks,
Jeff

if the width is divisble by 4. So

but
704 / 4 = 176 with no remainder so it would be sweet.

I would like to see some additions with ripbot in the future, wether any of them will ever appear depends on Atak of course.

1. A pause button
2. Ability to have more than one audio stream
3. Lossless streams (DTS-HD & TrueHD)
4. Being able to merge m2ts files & create chapters (Im working on South Park at the mo and its a nightmare)

2. Ability to have more than one audio stream
3. x264 qpfile support for accurate chapter seeking
4. 2.0 AC3 audio option for MKV

All four can be worked around but would be good if RipBot could do this natively to save a lot of time. I think however if Atak was interested in these, especially 1, 2 and 4, they would have been added by now. 1 and 2 have been requested almost weekly by different people :)

RipBot is a great tool that Atak has done a great job with, but with these additions RipBot would be the complete tool for me.

Thats good to know, I love the program. I build all my AVCHD's with it, maybe Blu-rays in the future.
I would like to see some additions with ripbot in the future, wether any of them will ever appear depends on Atak of course.

1. A pause button
2. Ability to have more than one audio stream
3. Lossless streams (DTS-HD & TrueHD)
4. Being able to merge m2ts files & create chapters (Im working on South Park at the mo and its a nightmare)

Thoughts and feedback would be interesting

You DON'T need a pause button. I play Civ5 while encoding. It just drops down to 1 fps. No problems with the game and no problems with ripbot so, why do you need a pause button? I know the instinct is stop the encode, but low priority works just fine.
As for chapters, I've never had a problem transferring chapters to my encoded file. If you are asking for ripbot to create chapters... the point of ripbot is it's simple elegance.

The request for streaming audio/video might make it in because that doesn't change ripbot. It simply removes a feature when you don't need it.

I would just like Ripbot to be the only program I need to use. Its such a wonderful piece of software.

tsMuxer can join m2ts files but if too many are added you get OOS issues so currently (as with South Park) I have to take 14 m2ts files, run them through tsMuxer, join them with a script I found online (Thanks to Atom) to stop the OOS issues, put them back into tsMuxer and create an m2ts with it changing chapters at the end of each episode, a lot of watching for when each episode ends and creating custom chapters there. You can see where im going.

A choice of a 2nd audio stream so if I wanted to add a second language or directors commentry it would be just another drop down box without having to calculate the amount of space left.

Lossless stream abilty is self explanatory, not overly need yet but in future for BD25s I would want to use ripbot.

I have not tried re-encoding cold mountain yet. I'll be able to do that today or tomorrow. I am encoding the Season 2 of Downton Abbey and I got a new error during the encoding process:

Application Error:
Exception EInvalidPointer in module EncodingClient.exe at 00002B04. Invalid pointer operation. After clicking the okay button on the error, it started the muxing process.

you can ask for screen recording and system properties like processor type (AMD, INTEL), overclock or not overclock, OS info, errrrr..... software installed, etc... network config... maybe you need not a sample but full movie to check i guess ...

I wonder if it's the software I have installed. I installed the software AviSynth , Haali Media Spliter , ffdshow that you provided links for a few weeks ago. Is there a particular version that I should test with.

A few other minor bugs that I thought I would bring your attention to.

If I use a VPN on the master machine, the EncodingClient won't be able to connect to the other machines on the local network with the IP address (not the name). I can still ping them though. One time when I was on the VPN and started the client, it showed a local IP of the VPN's network and not the local one specified in the ini file.. I "think" even if I specified 127.0.0.1 as the IP of the local machine, it still showing the LAN IP in the EncodingClient. If I make sure I'm not connected to the VPN during the start of the EncodingClient's distributed encoding, I can then connect to the VPN and encoding will continue happening as expected until it starts the next job.

The other minor bug comes when you edit the file result location of a job that was already in the queue. The second time you edit it, it shows the job folder and not the location of what it was originally set to.

The third minor bug comes from after you just submitted a job, and you click on to edit it, it selects a different job to edit. If you I click on the last job again, it then selects the last job.

edit:
I was also looking at the Donation link on the first post, and I for the life of me can't find the United States listed and make it show English. Do you have a different donation link, such as through Google Wallet (checkout) that I can use?

I keep reading about Paypal screwing over projects with "donate" buttons because donate is a US legal term indicating the recipient is an IRS sanctioned and authorized non-profit charitable organization. Paypal is a necessary evil, and they are definitely evil.

Edit - mp3tag.de accepts donations via Paypal. Ask Florian.

I was reading the guide to create the donation link where there are options for country and language and Poland comes with two options for links > Polish and English.

I had an error on a last night's encoding
"Error: Simple chapter parser: 'CHAPTER27NAME=Robert Inspects the Border' is not a CHAPTERxx=... line."
The PC auto-shutted down and I found the message today. Obviously it's a chapter issue, but I lost the video that was produced, so I'll have to do it again today.

Can you make it to keep also the temporary video file, until the job is completed with no errors?
Then delete the temp file or leave it there for the user to find and work around the problem

Thanks in advance

Only if the source is MKV. From a blu ray structure source, it cannot.

I followed the video tutorial to the letter (or is it picture?) for distributed encoding and when I try it Ripbot will still only locally encode. Are there more detailed instructions somewhere?

@fantasmanegro Keep Jobs in queue only keeps the "Job" in the queue not the finished "work" it has done. That gets muxed to the location you specify.

I too have had to re-encode jobs because of an error. weather it be an error with subs or chapters. On these the only solution is to not use the sub/chapter, or try to fix the prob, and have it as the only thing in the queue. that way if it does error, you still have the finished 264 and aac in the temp dir. otherwise the next job will del/over write the work it has done. Hope this helps.

Hi,

After an update from version 1.16.4 to latest 1.17 version i have an odd problem with mkv files. Sound is not available. If i open an avi or mp4 or ts file it is showing sound.
I checked the mkv files with mkvtool and there are sound tracks available. I am running win7 64bit with latest avisynth,ffdshow and haali 32 bit versions.
I also have deinstalled the programms and installed them again but problem still excist. :confused:

Hi,

Would it be possible to add (maybe as an .ini setting) an option to default to a chosen language for when the audio track is 'undetermined'?
