forget about a copyrights. you are not the first user who sends me sample for debuging.
besides i asked only for first 11 min of the movie.

like i said before open video.mkv in mmg.exe and prepare proper sample. without that forget about any help here. your choice.

After quite a bit of investigating I think I may have narrowed down what the problem is. Its not directly with your tool. The problem appears to be with Avisynth. I used virtualdub to load in the video.mkv file (and other test videos) with an avs script. On certain types of files when using the trim command if you trim on certain frames you will get three repeated frames at the beginning. On one file I noticed that it was every fourteenth frame. I was thinking this might be on keyframes, but that was just a guess. I was able to reproduce the error on a 1 minute segment. I don't mind sending a short clip like that. But I won't have time to send until tomorrow.

Hello Atak I was just wondering if higher audio bit rate for LC 2 channel will be added higher than 128kbps for MP4 encoding. The reason I ask is because when converting MKV files into MP4 format for Xbox360 the audio sounds low compared to the audio of 320Kbps on the PS3 and have to higher the volume drastically because Voice parts sound low while the action scenes sound louder than expected. Reason I use Xbox is because some movies contain Cinavia and therefore have to watch them on Xbox instead of PS3.

Atak_Snajpera

128 kbps AAC is transparent even for HydrogenAudio forum users. If you hear difference between 128 and 320 so it has to be something wrong with your equipment. Bitrate has nothing to do with low volume. Most likely dialog normalization has been removed.

A small bug,
in DE in the lower part of the window, displays fps & eta, which do not correspond to the sum of fps of the servers (or the server if there is one left) or the eta displayed in encoding chunks (or chunk)

Atak_Snajpera

basicly at the bottom you see average fps for all chunks. also eta is based on average fps.

Hi all,

I have a little problem with this great piece of software.....

A encoding server on one of my PC's switching between encoding and Idle . In the textbx the server displays :

"Encoding started" and then "encoding terminated" nothing else. The encoding client shows the IP "192.168.0.7:1000 ->Starting...." and then "Queue" without transfering the chunk. Share on the server pc is created (manually) and te network access is granted. The access from explorer to tempfile on the server pc is possible, but the folder is empty.

Any suggestions what I did wrong or how to solve this issue? Thx in advance.

Start an encoding session with that server as the only one...

then...

from the server that won't connect run the following from a command prompt window \\[servername]\ripbot264temp\job[x]\chunks\2.cmd

post the result if you can't determine the source of the problem...

@Atak :
thx for response - believe me, I watched the Tutorial mo0re then 1 time :-).... and distributed encoding works on 4 PC's without trouble - :thanks:

@Shrekage : I tried this on a PC where the encoding server is encoding - This folder/file is not existing on that PC which is not working as a encoding server - sadly. :(

What I wonder - when is the shared folder created with it's content normally (is it created automatically? I think normally yes..) - means when is the content transfered and what makes it impossible to transfer it?

Or did I have to run that command from the PC with the encoding client which distributes the chunks to encoding servers?

Atak_Snajpera

make sure that all pcs are in the same workgroup.

Shrekage
18th September 2012, 17:23
@Peter_mov

I think you are making this more difficult than it has to be...

I will use the following to identify the machines
Server - the PC that runs the encodingserver.exe program
client - the PC that runs ripbot.

The client machine should have a share as described in the turorial \\client\ripbot264temp should be accessable from the server. As Atak pointed out, they should be on the same workgroup, but you could be able to type in \\[client]\ripbot264temp from the server machine and be able to access the temp folder on the client PC. once you have that accomplished, you should be able to use DE assuming firewalls, etc... are configured correctly.

--- Help Please ----

I need some help here. I'm trying to encode a BluRay and the audio (DTS) will NOT cooperate. If I use AAC, the sound is always out of sync . If I encode it in AC3 or Ogg, it's synced up just fine. Does anyone know what is the problem or how to fix it? I suspect it's the encoder, but that's just a guess.

Use the "no audio" option, and then remux the final mkv with the oroginal audio

I'm trying to figure out how RipBot264 works it's magic so that I can do exactly the same thing using Perl scripts. Apparently, it uses other people's command line programs to do the actual conversions, compression etc. Therefore, it should be possible.

Here is what I've been able to figure out so far, using the compression of an exact copy (minus the copy protection) of a typical movie DVD as an example:

RipBot264: written in Delphi by Atak Snajpera

"Combining VOBs...": vjoin.exe (CombineVOBs.cmd) & eac3to.exe (VOBgetinfo.cmd)
"Indexing video stream...": DGindex.exe (No .cmd file created.)
"Demuxing subtitles...": VSRip_Launcher.exe & VSRip.exe (No .cmd file created.)
"Gathering information...": ? (No .cmd file created.)
"Extracting frame...": ? (No .cmd file created.)
----- User input -----
"Pass1...": avs2yuv.exe & x264_x64.exe (job1_EncodeVideoPass1.cmd)
"Muxing...": mkvmerge.exe (job1_MuxFiles.cmd)

The "Gathering information..." & "Extracting frame..." steps happen too fast for me to see what program is executing by looking at the Windows Task Manager list, but it could also be that no external program is used for those steps.

Pratyatosa
23rd September 2012, 14:17
RipBot264 is a brilliant program, but it could be improved as follows:

1. Allow the video track to be simply copied. Maybe all the user wants to do is to convert the audio to a different codec.

2. Add an option to convert the audio to 2 channel AC3 if the input is, for example, 2 channel AAC.

3. Add an option to skip all user interaction and simply use the defaults. Perhaps more settings could be added to the .ini file.

4. Display what the bit rate is for the audio input, so an intelligent choice may be made for the output bit rate. Either that or don't allow illogical choices. It doesn't make sense to offer the user the option of 640kbps AC3 audio if, for example, the source file has 448kbps AAC audio. Why even offer such an option?

5. Stop stripping the dots (periods) out of the target file name.

This is only available for HDDVD/blu-ray sources

AC3 2.0 is only available for AVCHD. For other containers AAC is better than ancient AC3.

WRONG! 640kbps AC3 makes sense because AC3 is older and less efficient than AAC. So in order to limit further degradation in sound quality you need to use more bits!

5. Stop stripping the dots (periods) out of the target file name.
not all muxers like multiple periods in file name!

Atak,

The sharpen filter applied in this case makes no sense.

Please create an option to enable/disable via .ini file.

Okay Atak.

But here is the problem I have, I can't ALWAYS use AAC. I love it, but with certain source I ALWAYS get sync problems. So my options are use something else, NeroAAC seems to work for me, or use one of the other audio codecs like AC3 or Vorbis.

Yes. Step-by-step instructions on how to do this are given on <Tutorial: How to Convert DTS/AAC 5.1 Audio to 5.1 Dolby Digital (AC3) Within a Video File (http://llbest.com/?P=79)>.

However, there's a better way: Free Download & Tutorial: Batch/Multiple Subfolder Conversion of MKV/MP4/3GP/AVI/DIVX/M2TS/MOV/MPG/MPEG/OGV/TS/VOB/WEBM-DTS/AAC/MP3/OGG Video Files to MKV-AC3 (Dolby Digital), Preserving All Tracks! (http://llbest.com/?P=7i)

WRONG! 640kbps AC3 makes sense because AC3 is older and less efficient than AAC. So in order to limit further degradation in sound quality you need to use more bits!

Even if this is true, the RipBot264 software should be able to easily calculate what the ideal target file audio track bitrate is, depending upon what the source file bitrate is. So, why not have an INI file option to have the program choose the best bitrate to use?

Another thing is that one user is always going to want AAC audio in the target file. Another is going to always want AC3 audio, etc. So why not have the output audio track codec an INI file default setting, same as MP4 vs. MKV?

Pratyatosa
26th September 2012, 05:22
AC3 2.0 is only available for AVCHD. For other containers AAC is better than ancient AC3.

If I try to play a file with AAC audio on my home theater system, I get nothing but silence, because the "ancient" receiver that I use can only decode AC3 and DTS. Therefore, my standard is 100% MKV with AC3 audio, even if it's only 2 channels.

The "best" option is the highest. You can choose to lower it but they would be based on personal preference and who can create s formula to calculate personal preference?

I've been using RipBot264 for the last couple years and really appreciate the great work.

I have 2 feature requests:
Multiple Audio Streams
When I'm encoding a foreign film, I like to encode the movie into an MKV file and including the English audio track, the native audio track and the English subtitle track.
Currently I have to encode the movie with one of the audio files, then extract the 2nd audio file manually and then add it to the MKV file using MKVMerge.
I'd really appreciate it if I could select more than 1 audio track into a build.

Stopping Initial Scan
When I first click the Add button, RipBot begins analyzing the 1st video stream; especially when it comes to tv shows, the 1st stream may not be the stream I want.
I'd appreciate it if I could cancel the initial analysis, or have to click a button to initialize the scan.


Thanks for the great app :)

For example, if the source is MP4-192 kbps AAC audio, then it chooses MKV-192 kbps AC3 for the target file.

So, according to you, the author of ffmpeg doesn't know what he's doing, right?

Imagine that you have music encoded in HE-AAC@64kbps and for some reason you have to re-encode that file to MP3 format (older less efficient). What bitrate would you choose for MP3? 64kbps or 128kbps+?

If I try to play a file with AAC audio on my home theater system, I get nothing but silence, because the "ancient" receiver that I use can only decode AC3 and DTS. Therefore, my standard is 100% MKV with AC3 audio, even if it's only 2 channels.

Ancient or not, very, very, very, very few receivers can decode AAC. I spent better part of a day look at receivers and I only found a couple of very high end models that supported it. At that point, I switched all my encoded to AC3. Though for 2.0 sources, it's still AAC, and I'm hoping it will just stream PCM at that point.

Is anyone else having any problems with misplaced subs, when queuing up several encodes?

For instance, I'll queue up several movies/tv shows, etc, and sometimes the subs will be replaced with the subs from the next encode job, and sometimes vice versa, so in the end, some videos will have the wrong subs. I do check the settings before starting, and everything points to the right folder, but for some reason the subs will have been replaced.

It's not a consistent thing, but it does happen enough to be annoying.

If it helps, I only use .SRT & .ASS subs.

Bingo!

It was several months ago that I tried playing a video file with 2 audio tracks on my now discontinued Asus O!Play HDP-R1. I remember looking for an option on the menu, but I didn't think of the possibility that there might be a special key dedicated to the purpose. The icon on the key is very cryptic. I couldn't tell what it was supposed to represent until I already knew that it was the language button: the side of a head with a wave front coming from the mouth. It's on the very bottom of the remote.

I'm very grateful for your helpful hint, Chetwood.

In all probability, yes, it will be limited to 2.0 sources. Looking at the receiver you posted, it looks like it will decode music audio AAC through the USB, and probably only 2.0 channels. It says nothing about decoding AAC for any other source.

Hi Atak,

I seem to have a bit of a problem with the output of blu-ray sources that are 4x3. I have a few Criterion collection 4x3 sources that when they are muxed, the output is 16x9. This is also occurring with the recent release of Metropolis. Copping the selection by 240 left and right, and setting the size to 1440x1080 does not seem to produce the output as 4x3. It's still stretched to 16x9. Usually I have to use mkvmerge gui to remux it to get it to display 4x3 (and even then, there is still another line showing that the original display aspect ration is 16x9 according to the video section in mediainfo:

1440x1080 is always 16:9 in hdtv. the same with 1280x1080 (LUXETE channel was using this weird resolution for 16:9 content)

for 4/3 sources you can just force --sar 1:1 in .cmd file

Thank you. After a hour or so of digging I found out about the header compression. I was finally able to use mkvmerge-gui to make a playable file again.

The command option --sar 1:1, would that be put in the MuxFiles.cmd?

Since 4x3 sources will be 1440x1080 in Blu-ray format, could I ask for a feature enhancement to force a certain aspect ratio or Anamorphic option in the GUI properties? I had no idea that someone would actually be doing a form of Anamorphic with HD content.

Atak,

First off great program! I have requested this feature before and wanted to do so again.

Sometimes when encoding in batch mode, I will have errors with the muxing. Since the program over writes the audio and video portions, I lose all the work that has been done. I do try to keep checking when I am home, but the other weekend I left the computer doing about 40 blu-ray episodes and when I got home, only 3 had been saved.

What I was hoping for is a feature that will store the temp audio and video files in the job directory before starting the next job.

Say the final output file is Lost S01E01, it would add -audio and -video to the names and move them into the job directory.

Thanks for your consideration.

bluray source requires user interaction so it cannot be added.

Suppose that I want to simply compress some of the "extras" on a Blu-ray disk. Therefore, I copy a number of smaller M2TS files to a separate folder. The way it is now, I have to "fool" RipBot264 by changing all of the M2TS containers to MKV containers using http://llbest.com/?P=7i (use http://llbest.com/?P=7i). Then batch mode works just fine, and I'm very grateful that you have added it.

But don't you think that having to do this time-consuming extra step is a little silly?

Hey Atak,

I had posted a few months ago about certain videos being corrupted when using Distributed Encoding. Well it seems to be doing it again. Except the corruption looks different now. Instead of the scene being slightly pixelated, the whole screen will go completely grey in color for 1 second. Usually only once in the whole movie. So far this has happened with Sherlock Holmes Game of Shadows, and Wrath of the Titans.

Just let me know what you need to see what the problem is and I will send it. Thanks!

It seams that those movies were encoded in AVC according to uncle google. You will have to prepare sample where grey frames occur. This maybe difficult though if this does not happen at the begining of the movie.

First you will have to locate at what chunk (frame index) grey frames show up. Then you will have to cut out sample with mmg.exe from previous chunk to next not corrupted chunk.

Example:
Chunk (OK) -> 1000,1439
Chunk (Grey frames) -> 1440,2879
Chunk (OK) -> 2880,4318

So proper sample should start from frame 1000 and should end at frame 4318.

copy all good x.264 files to some safe location. also

start again encoding from the very begining.

terminate encoding after preparing chunks message.

go to chunks folder and manually execute x.cmd

modify x.cmd ( replace --pass 1 with --pass 2 and --O NUL with --O C:/temp/ripbot264temp/jobx/chunks/x.264)

execute again modified x.cmd

now copy again all good x.264 and combinechunks.cmd to chunks folder.

execute now combinechunks.cmd and then jobx_muxfiles.cmd

Been using ripbot with distrubuted encoding and have had the luck to be able to use 5 encoding servers..

Now something ive noticed when doing batch encodes of tv episodes that are around 20 min , is that when processing the first episode of the batch , it will split the load of a 20 min episode over 2 encoding servers while 3 servers are idle , and the 3 idle servers are not continueing with the next episode in the batch.


Is this a function that would be possible to implement in future version of ripbot? to avoid having any servers idle at any time.

something like ripbot would split the load of an episode or movie (regardless of runtime) over the numbers of encoding servers being used , that way no servers would be idle and waste uptime

Would be a great function if it was addes to you already great app :)

I'm using makemkv to rip my movies and then add them in. I've also tried using ripbot+anydvdhd to rip them. I've run into a couple discs that can't be ripped by either setup and I've run into a disc that can be ripped by one program, but not the other.

Do you have any other suggestions I might try?

Thanks!

@Zeruel
in 2-PASS mode encoding client uses 10 min chunks. smaller chunk would only reduce quality.

however in CQ MODE this problem does not exist so encoding client will use 1 min chunks.

@GABES
national characters are not supported.

@USELTONM
send me 1min sample of problematic .mkv

i will have to see if i can reproduce your issue.

Some questions if anyone could help

When ripbot is set to ouput in AVCHD does it already take the overhead into account?

Does anyone know what the overhead is?

Im making myself DTS-MA BD25 AVCHD's so I calculate it by subtracting the lossless sound total in megabytes from the 23830 megabytes that ripbot shows and encode with no sound.
The issue is that sometime the result is ending with an oversize encode once the sound is muxed back in, any help would be great.

Ah. I had misunderstood how the batch mode worked. Interesting. Though it doesn't appear to have a way to specify you want to include subtitles and have to go back and add that manually. And everything gets named video.mp4/mkv.

Hi Atak, I did a "DE" from an original blu-ray and the final file is corrupt at the same place where the chunks are. For example if I use CQ, I'll get a "drop" exactly at every minutes in my final file. If I use 2-pass I get the drop every 10 minutes. Did the test with MKV and AVCHD.

thanks

No but that's because it doesn't know the complexity of the film and bits required in advance. Doesn't matter though just use 2 pass mode and set the final output size.

Atak,

Forgive if this has been asked before, but is the copy stream supposed to just copy over the original audio stream?

I have done a few encodes and it always seems to be downmixing or reencoding the audio from DTS-MA etc.

I really want to keep the original audio whereever possible, if you say to use certain settings and it will sound the same Ill believe you, but so far it has not or I'm doing something wrong.

FWIW I am going from my Blu-Ray discs > MKV which is played through XBMC to my Sony 7.1 receiver, which can decode all the major audio standards and is connected to my HTPC via HDMI.

Great product and thanks for any help you can provide, if the answer is here in the forums feel free to tell me to search and I will.

:)

Atak, I now see the error of my ways as I did not know that MKV does not support certain audio formats. Guess ill have to do some tests to determine the best audio to use for maintaining all the channels with MKV files.

Thanks.

Pitbull_Raven
2nd November 2012, 09:16
So I've noticed that the app makes more chunks in CQ mode and less in 2-pass. I guess this is because it needs something to analyze in 2-pass. But Is there any way I can "force" the creation of more chunks in 2 pass?

Atak_Snajpera
2nd November 2012, 10:41
smaller chunks for 2pass mode will only reduce quality because bitrate distribution will be too flatten. vbr will become more like cbr. basically this means that high motion scenes and static less detailed scenes will get moreorless the save amount of bits. 10 min chunks is just a compromise.

ttringle
2nd November 2012, 12:25
Atak,

I know that most sites claim that HD Audio streams such as DTS MA-HD and TRUEHD cant be placed into an MKV container. Yet BD Rebuilder creates MKV files while leaving the audio intact.

Is there a chance down the road you will add an option at the first stage to copy stream or better yet an intact audio option as JDobbs has?

Better yet why do we even have to make those choices Pre demux anyway? I would think that adding the title would provide all the elementary streams and then on the next page you could choose all the options for output. As it stands now if you make any mistake on the first page you have to sit through the entire Demux again.

If i am missing something or am totally wrong please feel free to point out my mistake, as I'm sure I'll learn something from it.

Dear Atak,

I used ripbot 1.17.2 and 1.17.3 - in both versions I get the same error:

---------------------------
Application Error
---------------------------
Exception EOutOfResources in module RipBot264.exe at 0004CBCC.
RichEdit line insertion error.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

see attachment. My OS is Windows 7 x64, I am logged under a user who is in administrators group.

I do the following: I add many mts files which are in different folders (path to them look like this D:\Pictures\_Pics_2012\2012-01-10\mts\20120110231512.MTS - they are groupped by dates) and then I set up following conversion parameters:
profile 4.0
2 pass 6000 kbps
resize to 1280*720
deinterlace tff 50
audio - xcopy
output mkv to D:\Pictures\_Pics_2012\_mkv\

As I see in C:\temp\RipBot264temp\jobs.list
the last line is [Job84] 20120122230840.MTS -> 20120122230840.mkv

but there are 85 folders - the last one is job85. So, most probably the last one has problems. The files in job85 folders are not all - there are just 6 of them:

11/04/2012 01:18 AM 1,689,856 2_audio_Undetermined.ac3
11/04/2012 01:18 AM 707 demuxlog.txt
11/04/2012 01:18 AM 407 job85.avs
11/04/2012 01:18 AM 245 TSExtract.cmd
11/04/2012 01:18 AM 168 TSgetinfo.cmd
11/04/2012 01:18 AM 431 tsinfo.txt

I see no files with more details about any exceptions neither in the job85 folder, nor in the ripbot folder.

I am sure on 100% that this is an interface bug with RichEdit control where you adding some data which it doesn't expect.

I want to help you reproduce the problem. You may send to my email (ibobak at gmail dot com) the "debug" version which will output some additional log files with traces, exceptions, etc.

check your free space
this is not the case: I have 50 GB of free space on disk c and same amount on disk d.

besides, the application doesn't stop working on this error. it asks me "do you want to stop conversion?" (something like that). No matter if I press yes or no, it CONTINUES its work and converts all the files except the one on which the problem was.

ibobak
4th November 2012, 09:32
moreover, when it finishes its work, I remove all jobs, add that mts file (that it crashed on it previous time), start conversion again - AND IT WORKS.

So, the problem is not in the file. The problem is Delphi bug or wrong usage of RichEdit.

I am a programmer. If author gives me the sources, I can debug for him and help him fix it. OR, alternatively, give me the version which ourputs a trace to a file.

Hi there.

I have started the encoding off now, and again avs2yuv has crashed at 18.7% on the first pass (it's a different progress each time). I don't believe this to be an issue with RipBot264 itself, but potentially an issue between avs2yuv and the C++ runtime library. Given the fact that the runtime is the same dll regardless of the OS, I am hedging my bets that AVS2YUV is calling on a particular function that is not recognised through some compatibility issue with Windows 8. Either way, Windows 8 is officially released and people have started upgrading already :)

Also, thanks for the response, Atak. I waited 5 days to be able to post, only to receive an abrupt response from you. I'm sorry if I said something wrong, but maybe a small point in the right direction may have helped :) I even provided all the information I could. Hopefully someone a little more helpful may be able to lend a hand :)

@ibobak

I will do it after I will encode all these mts files.
But I don't think I have so much avi's.

if you could give me a version which dumps debug info between every line of code with variable values, etc, and which does

try{
dump variables;
some action(variables);
line_number = 1;
dump more variables;
another_action(variables);
line_number = 2;
}
catch{
dump into a file the line_number
}

- then I would be able to give you all the dump when it crashes next time.

I don't believe the problem is in avi or in mts or in file format. As we can see from exception, it tells "RichEdit line insertion error."

If we google it, we'll find this
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10474883/why-am-i-getting-richedit-line-insertion-error-when-i-call-delete-in-onchange-ev

I was programming on Delphi long ago (I am C# developer for past 10 years), so I don't remember those technical details. But it seems as it is related to some control's problem.

I just tried RipBot and like it, just two questions:

1. I'd like to use a custom deinterlacer (qtgmc). I can edit the avisynth script in single file mode and it works just fine, but in batch mode only the stock deinterlacing options are available (tff/.../ivtc). Is it possible to add a custom script part to this list like the x264 get pulled from the profile subdirectory? If not, more customizations on the avisynth scripts snippets would be nice.

2. Is it possible to make RipBot recognize & run with x64 Java? (Sorry if this has been answered before, I could only find the question but not the answer)

Disclaimer: Yes, I do understand x64 doesn't double the speed and that the plugins aren't available in x64 yadayadayada, but it is a hassle to update both x86 and x64 Java all the time so I managed to make every Java program (like Azureus) to use the x64 vm. Since it's just the vm this really shouldn't be a problem w/ RipBot, too?

3. Bug report: On multiple mp4 files import after "Please wait... gathering information..." I'm also getting the error "Exception EConvertError in module RipBot264.exe at 0000949A. " is not a valid floating point value."

My workflow is like this:

Windows Movie Maker (wmv) --> Ripbot (mkv) --> mkvmerg (add chapters)

Is there currently a way to add chapters while authoring the mkv in ripbot? I know Ripbot utilizes mkvmerge, and I think the ability to add chapters along with subtitles would be a nice addition, and I imagine it would also be fairly easy to implement.

I hadn't used ripbot in a while and just grabbed the latest version. Looking good! It's nice when developers continue to improve their work. Keep it up!

I also use MKVmerge to grab the HD audio (DTS-MA or TrueHD) after ripping with Makemkv and I merge the video I created with ripbot with the HD audio from Makemkv - is there a way I can cut this step out? Whenever I select the checkbox for the core, it isn't the same track. I'm guessing there is a way to do this and I just don't have a full understanding so if that's the case, can someone please help me out? I need untouched HD audio. Thanks!

Hey all.

First, I'd like to thank Atak_Snajpera for his great contribution to the community. Your tool is a godsend and probably one of the best thing to happen to the video community since the appearance of DIVX. Also, the fact that you have kept it free is fantastic and in my opinion has made you something of a god in my eyes. So even though I know it's not worth anything, I'd like you to know I really appreciate your work. I thank you. And I am pretty sure there are countless others out there that thank you too.

That said, the reason I am here. Lately, I discovered the advantages and wonders of distributed encoding :D
My main work machine is my notebook:
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core i7 720QM @ 1.60GHz; Clarksfield 45nm Technology
RAM: 4,00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 665MHz (9-9-9-24)

Optical Drives: MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ890AS; MagicISO Virtual DVD-ROM0000
Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio

Second PC, is a fixed PC:

Operating System:Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 @ 1.86GHz; Conroe 65nm Technology
RAM: 3,00 GB Single-Channel DDR2 @ 266MHz (4-4-4-12)
Motherboard: ABIT FP-IN9 SLI(C55-MCP51) (Socket 775)
Graphics: 512MB GeForce 9600 GT (ASUStek Computer Inc)
Hard Drives: 1397GB SAMSUNG HD154UI SCSI Disk Device (RAID); 298GB NVIDIA STRIPE 298.10G (RAID)
Optical Drives: SAMSUNG CD-R/RW SW-252B ATA Device; PHILIPS SPD6000L1 ATA Device; MagicISO Virtual DVD-ROM0000
Audio: Realtek High Definition Audio

Pretty unimpressive, I know. My notebook, not much I can do to change it. I have to keep thing like they are software wise because of compatibility issues with other software I use.
The second PC, well it's just lying there and I don't use it for much lately, so I want to rededicate it and make it a dedicated encoder. A encoding server. The notebook will run as client and master. My question is, in terms of software, what should I do? How can I squeeze the most out of it? What op sys would you recommend? Win7? XP? Barebones? Nothing on it except RipBot? I'd really love to hear from ppl that have been through this process before.
Thanks in advance for any and all help and answers. I'd even appreciate it if you could point me to a post where this has been covered before (my search results didn't turn up anything too useful, maybe because I wasn't using the correct search terms).

:thanks:

I'm sorry if this was already answered, but browsing through nearly 600 pages is a bit tiring >.<
Anyway, I started having an issue with Ripbot, where after the encoding was done, the file wouldn't show up on the destination(output) folder. I tried to change the output folder many times but it didn't work. I also tried to shorten the file's name, running it as Admin, refreshing the folder, rebooting after the encode but nothing worked. (I'm using Windows 7 64-bit, RipBot264v1.17.0 (8Bits)).

Ok, I'll encode it once again and read the logs, I doubt I'll understand anything but I don't I'll paste it here via pastebin.

Also, the file I'm trying to encode has no national characters, assuming you're talking about accents such as or , so no I'm not using those. The file's name is also pretty small.

Atak, thanks again for such a great program. You have singled handedly allowed me to convert my 1000 blu-ray collection to files in the best possible time with the best possible quality. You have always been supportive and extremely knowledgeable about all your tools and software. It has been very appreciated as I feel my files have come out the best they can be at this point. Kudos and two thumbs up.

I have a avi video with a frame rate of 0.04fps. In RipBot264 Video Properties I define Output Speed "Assume ->25 FPS" which results in a Video Duration of 0:1:15.6.
When I add an Audio file which is originally over 3 minutes long, then RipBot264 will reduce its length to 344ms.

RipBot264 clearly uses the speed defined for video in Audio processing too.

This doesn't make sense, because output speed is just a property of video. This way it will never be possible to correctly mix an audio with video.

Thank you for this answer. With this hint I was able to circumvent the problem. But it is a little cumbersome having to edit the script. I really think you should consider using the same default as avisynth, which is NOT to change the audiorate in AssumeFPS.
Just to be precise there are 2 solutions to problem. My script, if Output Speed specified, looks like this:

#MT


#VideoSource

video=DirectShowSource("F:\Photo\TimeLapse\2011-07-19\TimeLapse_2011_0719_0747.avi",audio=false).ConvertToYV12()

#Deinterlace



#Decimate



#Crop



#Resize



#Colors



#Denoise




#Subtitles



#AudioSource
LoadPlugin("C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Kevin\Eigene Dateien\Downloads\RipBot264v1.17.3\tools\AviSynth plugins\NicAudio\NicAudio.dll")
audio=NicMPG123Source("C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Kevin\Eigene Dateien\SMIL\BSG21\testsuite\media\pitx-adeste_fideles_5.mp3")
audio=ResampleAudio(audio,48000)
#DownMix



#Delay
audio=DelayAudio(audio,0)


#Tempo
video=AssumeFPS(video,"pal_video")
audio=TimeStretch(audio,tempo=25/1.000/0.04*100)

#Normalize



#AudioDub
audio=ConvertAudioTo16bit(audio)
AudioDub(video,audio)

#Triming



#AVSameLength
Trim(0,0)


#ColorSpace

So Solution 1 is: specify Output Speed and delete the line "...TimeStretch...".

Solution2: Your proposal was not to use OutputSpeed and insert AssumeFPS manually.

Hi Atak,

I contacted you via YouTube whilst waiting for my doom9 account to become active. Any progress/update/thoughts on implementing ProRes and DNxHD input? Both of these professional intermediate formats are readable by ffmpeg although I'm not sure what role that plays in your software. Would be amazing to make your software available to video editors who encode for the web, such as myself... I haven't found another bit of software that looks as promising as yours.

Many thanks

Atak_Snajpera
20th November 2012, 15:37
I was wondering if you could swap ProRes/DNxHD with AVC-Intra. I will describe my workflow on Windows 7.
1) first i've installed x264 VFW codec
2) in Sony Vegas I configured x264 codec to encode only in intra mode (example : --preset superfast --tune fastdecode --keyint 1 --bitrate xxxxxx)
3) my destination container is .avi

once .avi is created it can be used in DE mode.

I suppose you can do the same on mac. Just install x264 codec and then select .mp4 as output container.

Found an issue with Windows8.
When creating storage spaces in Win8 and setting temp dir of Ripbot to one of that spaces, demuxing stalls at some early percent.
Doesn't appear with normal drives and volumes, only with new Win8 feature.

Hi Atak,
i love ripbot but i have still not figured out the subtitle problem i always encounter, so maybe im doing something wrong here, and if i am maybe someone can set me straight?

this seems to happen on all rips i seem to do, the subs when displayed end up half way up the screen, a temporary fix for this is to rip the film, with out adding any cropping, which sort of makes it a bit useless really, as the automatic cropping feature of ripbot is fantastic, by the way i never resize the rips i make its a straight blu ray image to 1080 untouched, size wise rip

here are some screen shot of this problem, (ive cropped the black bars slightly in paint so its actually worse than it looks!)

http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll311/ceet12/subtitlesproblem.jpg

http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll311/ceet12/subtitlesproblem2.jpg

as you can see the subs are placed very high up in the picture of both films more so in the harry brown example

if anyone can suggest any help or advice, id like to be able to crop the films automatically with ripbot, and have the subs appear lower like they do on the actual bluray/dvd disc movie itself, like there supposed to.

those screen shots were only taken on a pc, so you can imagine how high up they look on a 42 inch tv!

its seems strange as previous versions of ripbot didnt seems to be as bad as this for this problem, well for me anyway

any help would be appreciated!

I have a lot of JapaneseChinese films that I burn the subtitles in. I also do no like the way the the makers of the DVD/Blu-ray end up putting the subtitles on the picture. There is no way to "fix" the subtitles by using Ripbot. Ripbot is just putting placing the subtitles where the subtitles tells it to put them. Ripbot cannot change this as the subtitles are just bitmapped images.

However, I have worked out a solution that I've been doing when I encode my movies. It's a several step solution and I've been very pleased with the results.

If you are using the subtitles directly from Blu-ray or DVD, you need to extract them, OCR, them, and convert them into a .ass file. There are many advantages in doing it this way. You have absolute control of the subtitle now and can manipulate them in any way you see fit. Size, position, color, font used, etc.

Steps:

* Use SubExtractor to convert the Blu-ray/DVD .sup/.sub subtitles to .ass (and srt just to have it). This will OCR the bitmapped subtitles into text.
http://subextractor.codeplex.com/

* Use Aegisub to modify the .ass file to your hearts content. I also spell check the subtitles from here as well.
http://www.aegisub.org/

I'm pretty much a perfectionist when it comes to putting the subtitles into the film. In fact, I've found I'd rather not crop the video but actually put the subtitle in the black bars itself and not have them lay on the movie whatsoever. I can also make them smaller as I find some movies' subtitles far too large.

Example of before and after:
Original Subtitles:
http://www.chrisdos.com/Example_Original.jpg


Modified Subtitles:
http://www.chrisdos.com/Example_Modified.jpg

I can actually get two lines of text in the uncropped black area without it overlapping the movie. It's quite a bit more time consuming but the results are worth it.

how do you add subtitles ?

Hi atak, i add subtitles once adding the movie, this is different from using burned in for foreign speaking parts

so basically i just add subtitles the standard way i add the bluray stream let ripbot demux etc and then usually rip to mkv use xx copy stream for audio, and the i varie from cq setting 16-20 using hd progressive 4.0 and 4.1 profile

then i just click selectable subtitles choose English and press ok and that it, the subs are than added to the output mkv.

but are always extremly high up in the film, when automatic cropping is selected in properties

the source is never resized, just cropping is set to automatic.

@ryushin
Hello thanks for your reply

There is no way to "fix" the subtitles by using Ripbot. Ripbot is just putting placing the subtitles where the subtitles tells it to put them. Ripbot cannot change this as the subtitles are just bitmapped images.

i dont no whether i made myself clear so i appolgise, there is usually nothing wrong with the source bluray subtitles, if i watch the bluray back on the pc or on my ps3/bluray player on the tv the subtitles are placed low down at the bottom of the film, (well in this case a lot lot lower than my rips made with ripbot)

so what your saying isnt the case it my instance because the subtitles are appearing significatnly higher on my rips made with ripbot, than what they do when they are played back when viewing them on the actual bluray disc. so ripbot is doing something to make them appear higher? that what im trying to find out.

looking at your original subtitles picture looks so much better than mine, becasue my rips the subs appear to high in the movie, so something isnt working right for me, whether im doing something wrong i dont no

thanks for the advice regarding the ocr subs and programs im going to look into that and download the apps and read up on it, as well,

butr hopefully first i can get to the bottom of this

But you HAVE to resize to 1920/1080 or 1920/800 or whichever is suitable

There is no point in cropping if you don't resize

maybe thats were im going wrong?

but if i have a bluray image and i want to make an exact 1080 rip i dont want to resize i want to leave it the same as source, isnt cropping also used as reducing black bars? or am i mistaken here?

EDIT: WHEN I RIPPED harry brown i did it twice once with cropping set to automatic and one with no cropping both without resizing, the video left untouched.

accroding to mediainfo the results of both sizes are, size with cropping = 1920x804, size without cropping = 1920x1080

so clearly cropping is doing something here and this is without resizing and just selecting cropping to automatic, so what your saying doesnt add up, or im way of mark here.

a few guides ive followed on the new have stated this way?

one of many again states the cropping can just be used to remove the black bars without the resizing being touched

http://www.scribd.com/doc/92970322/RipBot-Guide

again i could be wrong here, because when the cropping is left alone, the subs do appear lower

any help greatly appreciated ATAK

26th November 2012, 06:15
@billspice Either you do as Ruyshin suggest or you don't crop the video. You can crop and resize to 1080p but that would stretch the image so it would look like crap.
I usually don't touch the video when using subs.

Good luck,

the problem is in fact in how your video player renders bitmap based subtitles.

you have 1920x804 video but subtitles are still in 1920x1080.

it looks like subtitle renderer in video player first puts subs on video area starting from bottom edge and then sends procesed image to the screen.

I've been using RipBot for a few years now, mostly it's worked well, but lately I've been having trouble with it. I've been using DVDFab Blu-ray ripper to rip Blu-rays, which I've used many times before, to rip the .m2ts file. I've gotten it work a couple times, but mostly when I put the .m2ts file into RipBot, it tells me there no audio. When I play the .m2ts file in Media Player Classic or VLC, the audio is there, though a bit jerky. I don't know if it's ripping software or RipBot that's the problem. The few times I did get it to work, it kept telling me MSVCP71.DLL was not installed, it was. I've been doing this for a while and don't know why it no longer works or how to fix it. Anyone have a suggestion? Thanks for any help.

For Bluray Structures it works fine (.mkv in TEMP Folder). But how do I convert TS files, MKV, or even the raw .264 Stream I extract from a Bluray by TSMuxer? Ripbot always create .avs files in this case and i am not able to use DE.

mkv is supported , raw .264 will work if put it into mkv container. ts is not supported because most of tv stations use interlaced encoding. ffms2 decoder has still some issues with those streams.

EncodingClient does not allow me to choose which NIC to communicate from causing the scenario below:
Scenario:

Server1 = NIC1 / NIC2 <- Server 2012
Server2 = NIC1 / NIC2 <- Server 2012
Workstation1 = NIC1 <- Windows 8
Workstation2 = NIC2 <- Windows 7

Server1 and Server2 can connect to each other with no issues, but can not connect to Workstation1 or Workstation2 as the default NIC/IP is one of the network that the workstations do not participate in (iSCSI).

Workstation1 and Workstation2 can connect to each other, and to Server1 and Server2. This is likely because the EncodingServer is listening on all NIC's.

So I can better distribute the load to all systems if I start the process from my workstations. It would be nice if I could somehow specify the network that the EncodingClient uses to connect to the remote systems.

Hey Atak,

When using distributed encoding I see a general drop in fps encoding on a per machine basis (aggregate is still higher of course), For example,

On my hexa-core main machine I see roughly these results (BD -> MKV using 2pass)

pass1
1) Non-distributed ~ 55fps
2) distributed, client running on other machine ~30fps
3) distributed, client running on same machine ~20fps

Is this expected? If so, can you explain why, and if not, can you suggest a way to troubleshoot?

Thanks.

For pass1 I never see 100%. For case 3 (the worst case) it is somewhere around 15-20% I think. Out of the 12 logical cores, I see loading on less than half.

Pass2 is closer to non-distributed performance. Distributed it bounces around 80-100% utilization whereas non distributed is always pegged at 100% for all 12 logical cores.

Is there a log file that shows the command line calls as well as FPS upon completion?

For pass1 I never see 100%. For case 3 (the worst case) it is somewhere around 15-20% I think. Out of the 12 logical cores, I see loading on less than half.

Pass2 is closer to non-distributed performance. Distributed it bounces around 80-100% utilization whereas non distributed is always pegged at 100% for all 12 logical cores.

Is there a log file that shows the command line calls as well as FPS upon completion?

Try again with extra server running on the same machine.

v1.17.3
Added: WakeOnLan support in Encoding Client (valid MAC ADDRESSES must be specified in EncodingClient.ini)
Added: DE mode will now also work correctly on mixed 32bit/64bit systems (for example Client on x64 , Server on x86)
Added: Support for password protected sharing (valid username and password must be specified in EncodingClient.ini)
Added: Multiple Encoding Servers can be activated on single PC (Maybe usefull if for some reason CPU usage is not at 100%)
Changed: renamed Poster label to Cover and poster.jpg to cover.jpg in job folder (reason: Icaros 2.1 only extracts cover.jpg from .mkv!)
Updated: FhG AAC 2012-06-24, FFmpeg 2012-07-30, FFmpegSource r700, MKVToolnix 5.7.0, VSFilter 2.41.5626, x264 r2008

Trim is added automatically under #AVSameLength according to a/v duration.

Hi Atak,

So how DO you set up an extra server on the same machine ??

Are there instructions somewhere that I've missed, because I see this happening a bit on my 2 PC set up.

Hi Atak,

OK, I tried this, and all it does is "Waiting for connection"

My main server's IP is 192.168.1.180:1000, when I select "additional server", it gives it an IP of 192.168.1.180:2000, and that's it, nothing else seems to happen.

There must be something else that needs to be done ?!?!?

You have to enable it on the encoding client so it knows it is available now.

maybe you should enter 192.168.1.180:2000 in encoding client ? ;)

Your subtle hint's. :sly:

Well, I have just been able to suss it out, it didn't like 192.168.1.180:2000, but I have a 2nd NIC in the PC, so I used it's address, 192.168.0.25:2000, and it worked, so then I went to the client PC, and added an additional server, and that worked straight away, so I have double (quadrupled) the processing power, so the encode I'm doing now is running at 120fps (only an avi)

So you're excellent piece of software just keeps on giving :)

Cheers

I can't see that button "Additional server" on v.1.17.3

EDIT
Figured it out, nevermind!

Anyone using RipBot on Windows 8 yet? I don't see my mapped drives in the Save dialog anymore, although I can use share names '\\server\share'. I do see mapped drives in windows apps like notepad. I think it must be a windows 8 security issue. If anyone has figured this out, please post the solution.
Thanks

I've run into a couple issues running RipBot and hopefully someone can help. First, I've been getting this dialog box most times I pop in a .m2ts file into RipBot:

http://www3.picturepush.com/photo/a/11761661/img/11761661.jpg (http://picturepush.com/public/11761661)

Is there some way I can fix this. I'm running Windows 7 x64 if that helps.

Second, I have a .m2ts file of Sunset Boulevard. When I play the file in Media Player Classic or VLC, it plays normal, but for some reason RipBot picks the commentary as the audio track for the movie. Media Player Classic only shows one audio track while VLC has two, the audio and the commentary. Is there some way I can force RipBot to pick the correct track? There's only one option in the original settings box, so I don't know how to make it pick the correct track.

Thanks for any help.

Demux the track with tsmuxer and add it manually

Thanks Zorro and Slalom. I can't believe I forgot about tsmuxer.

If I might ask one more question? I have a few older movies that are in the 4:3 format like the Sunset Boulevard I mentioned above, and Casablanca to name a couple. When I put them through RipBot and set the resolution to 1440x1080, which I believe is 4:3 1080 resolution, they still for some reason come out widescreen. I've tried cropping them manually and automatically, but with the same results, a widescreen aspect ratio. The source .m2ts file is 4:3 so I don't understand why the output is not. Can anyone offer a solution to this problem? Thanks again for any help.
