Why do you convert mkv with mkv2vob??????? Use m2ts from bluray structure instead. (I assume you have PS3). Log file should be in /Logs Directory

I am trying to stream to the ps3 via tversity... it does not recognize m2ts (from wut i kno) and when u do just change the container to say mpeg i get picture that pixelates and breakes up... and i also dont get the audio desired... the audio is in highdef and not compatible with the streaming capabilities of the ps3.. thus that is y i use mkv2vob... unless there is another option i have failed to acknowledge please fill me in... thanks for your help

heres the log i got for converting the m2ts to mkv:

hello again Atak_Snajpera.

i ran into another problem.. im not good at this kinda stuff so please bear with me.. >.<

i tried to encode this file :
http://freetexthost.com/o43cnswtfv

but everytime i do so, mpc pops up and give me this :
DirectShowSource: couldn't open file E:\<titleofvideofile-h264.aac>.mkv:
No combination of filter could be found to render the stream.
(C:\DOCUME~1\Xaero\LOCAS~1\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 1)

Yes, I just realised that you created a GUI for that app but Zenitram is the actual Author of that application.

I know that we can look at that MediaInfo application to see what encoding options are enabled in the h264 file. From there we can identify it's "true" level. It would be nice to have an application that could automate this though.

Something that could just scan a h264 file and state if it is Blu-ray stand alone/PS3 compatible or not.

Hmmm... I wish I knew how to create software. Atak, where can I start to learn about acquiring such a skill like yours?

What does avinaptic do? I am looking for a tool that scans a h264 file and even if it is tagged or encoded in the 5.1 level profile, it can identify if it can indeed be tagged as 4.1 and fit into that profile correctly?

In other words something that can identify the h264 streams true profile level by scanning the encoding options used, not something that simply reads the metadata.

For example... We can change the metadata to label a h264 stream as baseline profile, level 3.0 (or below) but that doesn't mean it will play on an iPod. Changing the metadata, doesn't "make" it fit into that profile.

Atak made a GUI for MediaInfo as I mentioned. Atak's GUI is labelled MediaInfoRaw...

@Atak_Snajpera

another requests for you .. with theses you won't sleep soon :)

#1 - be able to add multiple audio track (was requested by me few days ago. I have a mkv in english and french. I want to create a bluray with the two audio track)

#2 - when you detect audio track in a mkv, if you found subtitles, extract them too and add a option in the main menu, not in the properties(now we have to extract them manually and import them manually)

#3 - support tsmuxer 1.6b (it had the split file .. yéééé)

#4 - be able to add multiple input in the same bluray output. Liek include job 1,job2,job3,job5 into one output (a new option in the jobs list screen). It will be really usefull for anime bluray.

#5 - add a feature in the .ini. Like Last avs script line. Like that you could add filters into the avs and it's only for advanced users :)

I've noticed that Roman is going to implement srt support in near future so this feature will get the highest priority.

#5 - add a feature in the .ini. Like Last avs script line. Like that you could add filters into the avs and it's only for advanced users

This should be easy to implement.

#3 - support tsmuxer 1.6b (it had the split file .. yéééé)

I still see no reason for doing that. If you want to split file use TSMuxer directly.

Why do you need two audio tracks in HD rip?

it's really important for me. in tsmuxer 1.6b Roman had the feature that I requested. the 000001.m2ts can be split into smaller files. Really usefull when you want to copy the ouput on a FAT32 system. it's all done by tsmuxer, but you have to pass the parameters.


--split-size=4GB

why.. easy. I speak french. I almost always watch movies in there original release. English in english, french in french and jap in jap subtitle :)

but I'm not only here. so when I got a movie with dual audio track, I want to keep them both. Right now the only option is to burn 2 DVD, one with each track... ok with tsmuxer I can include them both, but that's mean I'll have to do job1 in english, after that job2 in french.. but kill the process just after the audio encoding. mux them manually..

Yesterday, I converted Transformers 1080p to mp4. Original file was about 13Gb but after the conversion the mp4 file ended up being 1.5 GB only and when I played it on Ps3 it looked HORRIBLE with lots of microblocking and tearing.

In trying to encode a few bluray discs w/ripbot, keep getting innacurate size time information from the original .m2ts files. They were decrypter w/AnyDVD HD. Also were muxed with TSMuxer to remove unwanted audio and subs. The resulting .m2ts file plays and display the correct total time on with Nero Showtime, however Ripbot shows only a few minutes of play time. Am I missing something. Happens on Hitman, and Live Free or Die Hard...

@ Atak and all other encoding experts
I need a little advice and sorry if this is a little off topic.
I use Ripbot264 with great satisfaction to convert divx tv episodes to mp4 for my iphone/ipod Touch. Unfortunately I have lot of problems when I want to convert a DVD movie directly to mp4. Using CLONE DVD Mobile with 2 passes and maximum bitrate I have a good coversion but full of artifacts (green dots and lines) while if I use any other famous DVD ripping program I have better results about image quality but wrong format of view (that is the picture is wider than the original or distorted in some way).
Now I thought to use a program to convert in the best possible way the DVD movie to divx format and then use Ripbot264 to convert to mp4 since Ripbot does an excellent job and leaves the format of view as it is.
What is, in your opinion, the best program to convert a DVD movie to divx (possibly one with 2 or more passes for better quality)?
Last question: can you suggest an excellent program to add subtitles to a divx without loosing too much in quality? is sub2divx good enough?
thank you in advance for everybody's support. :thanks:

~bT~

i believe they must be burnt in as PSP wont allow you to select subs.

Even though your software is straight forward, I'm not having 100% success in conversion because I do not know what all the options mean and which ones should I select.

hi there,

very nice prog...been followin a while, but now i actually tried a bd encode and had an issue:

ripbot264 1.8.10 detects correct ac3 audio in my ts file and demux to ac3 file.

ripbot264 latest version demux the same ts file to aac, but detects ac3 (i think this is done via mediainfo). so what happens is that i cannot select copy stream for bd, only recode although it is not needed.

with version 1.8.10 this works correctly but i cannot do a direct bd encode. am i doing something wrong ?

btw, tsmuxer detects everything correct, but i cannot shrink obviously.

Tutorial about what settings to use for converting 720p and 1080p files for Ps3 without the loss of PQ or surround sound.

Just do some research on the x264 codec and learn what the settings mean. Then research DTS and AC3 audio... Google, google and more google. :)

If you are unclear about output formats, look up (google) these terms m2ts, Blu-ray and AVCHD.

From there you should be clued in enough to use RipBot264 and get the desired results.

Oh and by the way use google!

Do you really think Atak is lazy with all the improvements he is making to RipBot264?

I said it as a joke too and it was not meant to disrespect anyone. As for me asking about the tutorials, I just thought that it would be beneficial for all the new people to learn from the experiences of people like you(currently reading your threads on Afterdawn forum) and Atak instead of them spending many hours learning it themselves cuz after all not everyone has the same level of intelligence :).

As for me being lazy, I've spent COUNTLESS hours reading different forums (to a point where my girl is getting annoyed because I spend more time reading forums than watching movies that we already have on Blu-ray :p) and trying out different software/scripts to make things work and I'm still not 100% successful and that's why I wanted input for the the experts so that I at least have one side covered, while I learn/understand other ways of doing the same process.

Ok just watched the tut. Good stuff !! Now I have the following question

1) Why did you select output as "Blu-ray Disc" ? Wouldn't mp4 be better if I just want to copy the file to Ps3 instead of creating the whole Blu-ray structure (my understanding is that "Blu-ray Disc" output creates the whole file structure for a Blu-ray" and that's only if I want to "burn" the movie to a disc")

2) What does "CQ" under mode and "CRF" means ? Do we ever use that for converting movies for Ps3 ?

3) Why do we have to select "Lock Size" and "Size" (on the properties page?

Sorry for the newbie question and thanks again for the tut.

1) in order to get *.m2ts (AVC+5.1 sound). It can be copied on PS3 HD.
2) CQ means Constant Quality. CRF = Constant Rate Factor.
3) In order to use whole space on disc. Blu-Ray allows only two resolutions 1080p and 720p

Thanks for the reply.

1) So if I use *.mp4, I will not get 5.1 sound ? Also, the Blu-ray mode outputs a folder, is the *.m2ts file inside it ? If so, I can just copy that file to Ps3 and everything will be ok ?

2) So we do not use CQ or CRF for blu-ray ?

PS3 probably still downmix to 2.0. ( I haven't checked that with latest firmware ...)

If you don't care about final size use CQ@22 otherwise if you are going to fit your movie on DVD then you must use 2-pass!

I converted Rush Hour 3 to mp4 with AC3 audio and Ps3 info showed 5.1 Dolby (that was before the latest update). Also, since I'm not gonna burn a movie to DVD, will using SQ@22 take more time than the other option ?

Will the quality be the same with 2-pass or CQ@22 ?

(I'm sure I'm starting to annoy you with all the questions :( )

1) So if I use *.mp4, I will not get 5.1 sound ? Also, the Blu-ray mode outputs a folder, is the *.m2ts file inside it ? If so, I can just copy that file to Ps3 and everything will be ok ?

PS3 probably still downmix to 2.0. ( I haven't checked that with latest firmware ...)

The reason that the PS3 downmixes from the mp4 container is as follows...

As you are aware mp4 can not contain ac3 audio so aac must be used. It is possible to create a 5.1 channel aac stream but there are very few AV receivers that can decode this audio format (they do exist but are not very common).

So to get aac to play the PS3 knows that it must be decoded on board to PCM. Now here we face a little problem. 5.1 PCM has a bitrate of 4608Kbps (16 bit). An optical or coaxial cable are limited to the bandwidth of 1536Kbps, so that's just right for 2 channel PCM (or standard Dolby Digital/DTS). This is probably why you only hear 2 channels when decoding a 5.1 channel aac stream on board.

To get 5.1 channel PCM working you will need to have a HDMI v1.3 (10.2Gbps bandwidth limit) AV receiver and output the audio via your HDMI cable.

I am not 100% sure that the PS3 can decode 5.1 aac to 5.1 PCM as I don't have a HDMI v1.3 AV receiver. If anyone can add to this information... Please do. :)

Note: The PS3 is not capable of TrueHD bitstream either, it must be decoded on board and output as PCM.

Thanks for the reply.

Fortunately, I do own a HDMI capable receiver and my Ps3 is connected to it via HDMI maybe that's why I was able to hear 5.1 in mp4 file. I also noticed that when I played that file, my receiver was showing "Multi Channel" which is the exact same display that I get when I play Blu-ray movies so I think its safe to assume that I was getting 5.1 PCM.

HDMI is not good enough. You need a HDMI v1.3 AV Receiver. These receivers usually cost about $2000+. Are you saying you have one of these AV receivers? From what you are saying, it sounds like you do. :)

Just a thought, my AV receiver also displays multi channel whenever it receives a digital audio stream (including 2.0 channel audio). 2.0 channel audio is then output to all speakers via Dolby Pro Logic II. However when it receives a 5.1 channel stream, it identifies this by highlighting all the speakers in the little diagram on the LED. Also, a little blue light turns on when it recieves a 5.1 stream.

Note: If you are unsure about the different HDMI versions, check out this page at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HDMI

Anyway, back to your original question that inspired these posts. You asked why you shouldn't just output mp4 instead of Blu-ray... Blu-ray output supports a wider variety of elementary streams (including switchable subtitles) and as such is a better choice.

1.3 receivers do not cost that much. You can get Onkyo 605 for less than $500 :)

As for the original question, when you select output as Blu-ray...doesn't it create a whole folder and not just a single video file ?

Yes, it seems you are right about that AV receiver supporting HDMI v1.3. I was quoting Australian dollars previously. I just did a quick google search on that Onkyo receiver and it looks like the Onkyo TX-SR 605 is about $1,300 here, still quite a bit more than the $500 (or less?) like you claimed. Is that the AV receiver you actually own or were you just referring to it? If it is, you must have found a fantastic bargain.

As for the original question, when you select output as Blu-ray...doesn't it create a whole folder and not just a single video file ?

That still doesn't take away from the fact that Blu-ray output is a better choice. You simply need to burn those folders as a UDF v2.5 disc.

thanks for this great app.

but.. i need help solving my a/v sync problem which only happens if i use mkv as source (everything is ok if avi used). ripbot demuxes video and audio. and then i see that audio is longer than video what cannot possibly be, i guess. cause video and audio are from the same source. i tried to cut the audio, stretch it (doesnt make sense though), make a delay. the resulting file still has audio running too fast.

no such problem if using automkv for example. but id like to ripbot264 work as well.

thanks in advance.

Hello mOnkie, could you tell us more about your original file? Do you have any other information about the file? Maybe where it was sourced from originally?

You could use MediaInfoRaw to show us what the elementary streams are: http://www.mediafire.com/?ochgfxmjbzt

Paste the information it gives you here and let's see what we can come up with. :)

Atak or anybody else would love to help but we need to know more about what is happening before we can diagnose the problem.

My guess is that it could be a framerate discrepancy but we can't confirm until we know the origins of the media.

You will need to use the TextSub command in AVIsynth (vsfilter.dll) to overlay the subtitles over the video, so when you frameserve the video to the encoder it will be encoded with the subtitles embedded in the picture.

In regards to the audio, for the iPod it must be AAC-LC (AAC=Advanced Audio Codec, LC=Low Complexity) and the maximum bitrate it supports is 160Kbs. You also must select stereo not 5.1.

@m0nkie - your mediainfo results report a running time discrepancy between audio & video in the source - this could be why ripbot264 is also reporting a difference.

Does the source file play correctly on your PC?

If you demux the audio with mkvextractgui, what is the actual running time of audio?

no need to demux it myself cause this is what ripbot does everytime i open the file. i can see its actions from temp dir.

maybe there is anything in avs file (automatically generated by ripbot264) that prevents from correct muxing or whatever... any thoughts?

Hi all and I wonder if you can help. Im very new to this tool RipBot and it is one amazing tool, just what i have been looking for, but the problem being is this.. How do add chapters when encoding from mkv to bluray....???
I know in ts remux its possible but every thing i have done so far has no chapters to it.
Am I doing something wrong.
Thanks again for this wonderfull bit of kit. :p

Ok thanks... but how do you add chapters to a mkv then. Sorry if this sounds noobish but im new to the whole mkv scene lol. Is it possible to add them to one so when re encoded in RipBot it has these in there or can RipBot do this for you ;)

Only logical solution is to load fresh copy of the OS and try again. that's something that I will do in a week or two, assembling new box, so no point of di$king around with this one. I used mkv2vob app w/o any problems, but RipBot264 gives me a lot more options, especially since some of content that I have is in various formats and isn't cooperating with PS3.

Anyone tried using RipBot on Vista 64bit?

The movies still looks better than any store boughten DVD, and when put in our home blu-ray player, it says now loading Blu-Ray. WOW! Now my kids can watch a Blu-Ray movie on a single DVD-DL disc and when it gets scratched it won't cost me another $30 to replace it... THANKS A MILLION!!!

@ Atak

any chance of adding a N95 profile please? the meGUI one doesn't work very well..

Just use DivX (with mobile profile) in VirtualDub, Use a horizontal resolution of no more than 320 pixels, and adjust the vertical resolution to the correct aspect ratio (16:9=320 x 176, 2.35:1=320 x 128). Use a video bitrate of no more than 500Kbs, and use a frame rate half of the original. For example if you have 24fps material, use 12fps. For 25fps material, use 12.5fps. From what I understand, a mobile phone can handle up to about 18fps (some can handle more) but I would recommend using half the orignal framerate to ensure the sampling is done at the same tempo and framerate remains jitter free.

Then encode your audio with AAC-LC. I use 48Khz @ 128Kbs, so when I use headphones I still get high quality sound. Finally use YAMB or MeGUI to mux the streams into MP4 container.

That's it, this should work on most modern mobile phones.

Ryu77
8th April 2008, 05:57
@ Ryu77

N95 can handle upto 640x480 res @ 30fps according to reviews..

Then just use those parameters instead... However, keep in mind that if you want to share your videos or change phones, that the videos may not be compatible. As ajamils said, the screen is only 320 x 240, so unless you plan on displaying the videos on an external display then there really isn't much point increasing the resolution.

Also, do you know what max bitrate the N95 is capable of decoding? Sometimes using a higher resolution on a restricted bitrate allowance can make the video look worse.

PS: If that's the case for the N95 and you want to use the full resolution, framerate etc., why don't you try the iPod profile in RipBot264? It sounds like it could have similar decoding specs.

I have a question: I have a VOB file at 29.97 fps interlaced. However, DGIndex keeps forcing it to film mode and the result in 23.976 fps displayed in RipBot. I want to encoding it at 29.97 fps. So I open DGIndex, and chang the FIELD_OPERATION to "Honor Pulldown" but it doesn't have any effect on RipBot.

(I remember a few versions back you use to be able to change it in DGIndex)

I have bluray disks that I would like to rip to my hard drive.

I would love to save space and be able to convert to MP4 or MKV but keep subtitles.

When I click on options > subtitles I have two options to choose from.

Either options looks for certain files for the subs, but when I navigate to the bluray disk it cannot find any files with those extensions.

Do I need to use a different proggy to strip the subtitles from the bluray disk first?

Are the subtitles part of the .M2TS files on a bluray disk?

Sparkey,

What process are you using to backup your Blu-Ray and strip streams from them? I would love to do this, but haven't quite gotten there yet...

I have gotten it down to using the latest tsMuxeR to strip out the unwanted sound tracks, using only the 5.1 or ac3, not using dts and others because they are too large and will take more away from the video quailty. After this just click on the -output- button "M2TS muxing" and hit the "start muxing". Once the muxing is finished, load the M2TS into RipBot, make sure you have ALL the latest updates to the files/programs used by RipBot, use -2pass-, put a check mark in -Lock Size (mb)- select size 8150 the -save as- -Blu-Ray Disc- select -done- then -start- Once this is all finished load Nero Burning ROM, I'm using version 8, select -DVD-ROM (UDF)- copy the two subdirectories RipBot made called BDMV & CERTIFICATE into the ROOT directory of DVD-DL disc and you are done. You must use a DVD Dual Layer Disc if you are going to select 8150 in RipBot.

Hope this works for ya... so far I have backed up around 15 of our kid's blu-rays to DVD-DL disc and all work perfectly in our home blu-ray payer. Of course you know these types of DVDs will NOT play in a standard DVD player... :)

Good luck!

Why not importing m2ts directly in RipBot? After demuxing you may choose which audio track you want.

Why not importing m2ts directly in RipBot? After demuxing you may choose which audio track you want.

First I use AnyDVD&HD to rip the blu-ray to the hard drive, then when I try to add the main .M2TS movie file into RipBot, it will give me a message "Couldn't open input file in HIDE mode! Exiting." almost all the time. However, when I use tsMuxeR first, then I can add the .M2TS file into RipBot with no problems. For example the movies Cars & Sky Captain both gives this message above and some other moives I have tried. So I just got into the habbit of using tsMuxeR first, then RipBot...

@ Atak_Snajpera

Hi, I have a problem with my m2ts files on the PS3 and you might have some experience with it. Seeking only works for me when I do not use "--aud" in contrast to what you wrote in the changelog of version 1.8.6 of RipBot264:

"fixed: M2TS seeking on PS3 (added --aud switch in encoder command line)"

I know that seeking works when these m2ts files are in a Blu-ray structure but no luck when playing standalone m2ts files. Also tested that with a Simpsons trailer and RipBot 1.9.2. I even remuxed the m2ts of the Blu-Ray output with tsMuxer.

Any idea why seeking does not work on the PS3 2.20 with standalone m2ts files containing a h264 stream created with --aud?

I really like to keep --aud set as it seems to be required in transport streams in general and for Encore, Scenarist, etc. import.

I've found solution. In TsMuxer uncheck Continually insert SPS/PPS

Thanks but already tried that. In fact I tried all the combinations concerning the video stream (also using picture timing setting). This does not work for me. Double checked with output form RipBot264. The PS3 still goes to a black screen and does not forward at all.

When not using --aud everything is fine even when leaving both of the video stream options checked. Same is also true for using a file with --aud in a mp4 container.

Atak_Snajpera
12th April 2008, 19:21
It does work! I imported raw .264 file and .ac3 in TSMuxer. Then I unchecked Continually insert SPS/PPS and suddenly seeking started to work.

Edit: I will check later if Blu-Ray structure works without --aud. If Yes I will remove that from command line in next version.

Warrex
12th April 2008, 20:05
Ah, got it!

Stupid me did not realize that these settings change the video stream irreversibly (so it seems). I thought these just affected muxing. I used a m2ts (which was created with the SPS/PPS option) and just remuxed it without the setting. This does not work!

PLEASE DO NOT remove --aud even if the Blu-Ray structure works! Like I said I read here many times that it is required in m2ts streams. Scenarist and Encore will not import files without it!

Look here (I assume this applies to m2ts too): http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=708112&highlight=access+unit+delimiter#post708112

BTW: Do --aud and SPS/PPS do the same thing? Or are they similar?
BTW2: Getting m2ts only output back would be cool...

I think there is some problem with the new version RipBot264 that I download from Ajax_Undone's signature.
I can't encode the audio anymore.
The final output has a horrible sound.

Hi there. I have come accross a problem that i cant seem to crack so i wonder if any of you guys can help.
I am encoding a mkv file to bluray with ripbot and i need to add subtitles to it.
I have the subs in .srt format which i then enable in ripbot and choose "Build in Picture". I then let ripbot do its stuff, but when its finally all done there are no subs hard coded into the movie.
I played the file on pc and ps3 and there are definatly no subs there.
What am i doing wrong ????

First, thank you for the program very nice, clean, easy to use program.

I wanted to use this program to convert my blu-ray discs into something that is less of a hassle to play on my HTPC.

I did "I am Legend", I used the 4.1 profile, set CQ to 16, and converted the audio to the highest bitrate AC3, using mkv. I did not change any other settings, this worked perfectly.

Last night I tried to do "The fifth Element" all the same settings. It seemed to work perfectly again, but I found out that 1 minute 30 seconds into the film, the audio just cuts out for the rest of the movie. Until that time my reciever detects the AC3 audio, and it sounds perfect.

The Fifth Element has an LPCM audio track and Ripbot did convert the LPCM to flac.

So, any thoughts would be appreciated, and I will gladly provide any other info you need.

thanks

Hey Atak_Snajpera. So I just finished testing it out and I am very happy with the way your software works. It operates so smoothly on my machine. And it was so easy to use. I really like it a lot.

I'm going to use this software to encode all my Anime DVDs. Maybe you can take a look at this sample of one of my anime series that I will encode.

http://www.mediafire.com/?scs2mgccdw9

Right now I will use the [ level 4.1 ] HD . BluRay . Consoles profile to encode this. But maybe you can see the source that I uploaded above and recommend me some changes to make to the profile to encode this particular one better. Unless maybe this profile is already good for my source. I don't know much about it because I am no expert.

Anyway, also, how can I know which deinterlace setting to use? Is there a way for me to find out? And how can I know if I need to use decimate? Those are really the two main options that I never know anything about :(

Well, thanks for everything!

edit:
See, when I'm done encoding I'm am seeing alot of frames that look like this:

http://img520.imageshack.us/img520/4185/samplees9.th.jpg (http://img520.imageshack.us/my.php?image=samplees9.jpg)

I have ripped a few movies (BD50) down to the main movie and the HD audio (DD true hd , DTS master HD, uncompressed LPCM) and they came out to between 26 and 30 GB. With the price of 1 layer BD-RE dropping fast I think it is only a matter of time that this would be preferred rather than burning to a DVD-R. The BD-RE has arounf 22GB of usable space. If you could include that in the fike size options that would be fantastic. Thanks for your great program

i used the properties window out of media player classsic. (its never failed me before). the orginal file posts this:

"Video: DivX 5 320x240 29.97fps 769Kbps [Video 0]
Audio: MPEG Audio Layer 3 44100Hz stereo 159Kbps [Audio 1]"

The file made with ripbot reports this:

"Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 320x240 [GPAC ISO Video Handler]
Audio: AAC 44100Hz 6ch 157Kbps [GPAC ISO Audio Handler]"

again i used the iphone/ipod profile for video and then the 2.0 96kbs constant profile for audio. Its an episode of season 2 good eats. I did 12 episodes all of which play on the computer fine but when you trnasfer them to the iphone you get video no sound because its being reported as a muliti audio source in itunes and a 6 channel source in mpc.

I tried rencoding the audio in megui with the faac codec (same file that i put into ripbot) and it came out with the correct channels...2. i muxed the audio into the orginal mp4 container that ripbot made and synced it to my phone an it played fine.

SO the problem must be with the encoding codec that ripbot uses.

Updated installer links take advantage of the shared folder it has other stuff that might interest you...

New:
Added recursive Directory add/remove so no more individual folder search for new/old files In the Setup Projects.7z

Killed the abort sequence that killed previous installers if a firewall blocked them from the Internet... (Needing a loop sequence for retry not yet implemented)

PreRun sequence is now automated in all installers...

*Soon to be added:
Uninstallation of old FFDshow before new one gets installed same with Haali and if need be Avisynth as well...

Also, sometimes when I encode my DVDs I like to keep the original AC3 audio track. So that would also be another good example of when someone would want to keep the untouched audio.

Select copy stream. AC3 is not allowed in MP4!

The audio is already 96kbps/OGG so if I transcode it, it will only give me worse quality. So I'm better off just keep the audio as it is.


OGG is only allowed in MKV!

Thx for a nice simple app that does the job nicely - Just used to make an mp4 from an AnyDVD rip of Fifth Element Blu-ray. Quality is very good and appears in sinc.
Using a Core 2 Duo E6600 2 gb ram it took 16 hours to make an mp4 using 2 passes at 2048 kbps. 1st pass encoded at about 10.5 fps - second pass at 4.7 fps.
Couple of newbie questions:
1. In order to save processing time is it neccessary to do 2 passses?
2. Does the encoding generally take longer or shorter for .mkv production instead of .mp4?
3. Would I save much time encoding at the default 1024 kbps instead of 2048?
Thx for the help and any tips.

deets
24th April 2008, 02:22
im awake so ill give your questions a go :D

1. no, 2 pass is only for making it fit a desired file size. If you are not concerned with the end file size you can try CRF mode which is one pass.
2. it wont make any difference to encoding time, the raw video file is the same in either mkv or mp4
3. maybe so, i only encode for PSP and i think it takes longer for higher bitrate, but i could be completely wrong :)

Atak or anyone else.

I'm very close to getting this great app to work perfectly for me, but I've got a couple of questions.

I'm trying to rip blu-ray movies to play on a Sage media extender. Doesn't seem to handle the full bit rate of m2ts files so want to encode to mkv as it seems to handle those well. I've done one encode that worked for the first 20 minutes of the movie (I'm using spiderman3 for my tests) but after about 20 minutes the audio stops altogether and the video plays at about 2x speed. I've read a bunch of this thread and figure this might be a codec pack I had (klite) so uninstalled that.

So, first question, what settings should I use to maintain the highest quality as file size is not that big an issue?

EDIT
I tried Blu-ray profile with CQ of 24 or 26 whichever is highest. That gave me a smaller file size then 20 or 22 whichever I tried first, so next time I'll go CQ with 16, that should give me least recompression, correct?
END EDIT

Second and this is the biggy, Spidey has TrueHD and a 5.1 uncompressed 5.1 sound tracks. I'd like to use either of these to create a 5.1 AC3 sound track. Is this possible? That sound track will work if I playback through my dolby digital (but not dts) decoding receiver, or if I dump straight to my TV via hdmi as my Sage extender will down convert for me to 2 channels.

If this is possilbe what's the right way to do it?

EDIT
Watched the process a little more closely this time and I think I've figured out that ripbot is actually converting the LPCM track to flac and then when I choose aften 5.1 it's changing it back to AC3, correct?

So, if that's right how does ripbot know which sound track to use? I guess the LPCM one has only one version and is English.
END EDIT

NEW QUESTION
Last question, so this next try even with smaller file size and my better understanding still created an MKV that has the audio die about 15 to 18 minutes into the movie (exact same point.)

Some way to fix this??

Also, should it take 45 minutes or so for Rip Bot to parse through the audio files and do the flac conversion before you get to make your mkv choices and start the re-encode??
END NEW QUESTION.

Thanks very much and again, great tool.

thanks

Remove all codec paks from your system and then use Ajax installer.

I did do it and I got the same problem with PlayStation3

I tried Blu-ray profile with CQ of 24 or 26 whichever is highest. That gave me a smaller file size then 20 or 22 whichever I tried first, so next time I'll go CQ with 16, that should give me least recompression, correct?
Lower value means better quality (bigger size). If I were you I would stay with CQ22.

Last question, so this next try even with smaller file size and my better understanding still created an MKV that has the audio die about 15 to 18 minutes into the movie (exact same point.)

I had the same problem with Casino Royale DVD. I will try to find solution.

So, if that's right how does ripbot know which sound track to use? I guess the LPCM one has only one version and is English.
User chooses track from the list not ripbot :)

When this error occurs show me also getinfo.avs

If your source is huge (bluray) with many soundtracks and your HDD is not very fast...Why not.

I'm using 1.9.2 and so far it's a nice program, but I'm finding a few things either broken or lacking.
broken:

decimation - it seems to be disabled no matter what. I'd have to guess it's something you're still working on.
sorry, it seems to just not like certain frame rates, very odd. it works fine for 29.976 video, but there's only the choice to decimate to 23.976. this is most definitely an odd case, but I have a 120fps video, and I'd like to be able to decimate it to 24, but no-go
subtitles - MKVs can hold SRT, SSA or ASS, but the only option available for "mux in container" is SRT

lacking:

saving new profiles - how? I'd like to save my custom profile, but there doesn't seem to be an option for it.
free-form bitrate control for the video - why be stuck with a drop down list of bitrates?
audio format and bitrates - 6 choices??? why not make a chooser between ogg, aac-lc and aac-he, and have a slider for either cq or bitrate?
normalizer - 100% or 200%? what if someone wants to normalize somwhere below, inbetween, or above those marks?
3-pass encoding - why not?

It looks like you didn't do your homework very well :)

1) Modifiy name (in codec settings) and click ok. Profile always shows in Profile directory. Is it that complicated ???
2) Did you even bother to enter bitrate manually???
3) Simplicity Amigo, Simplicity. Tell me Who encode for instance AC3 audio at 345kbps???
4) What is point to normalize audio below 100%??? 200% was added ONLY for PSP users. It helps a little bit to increase audio volume but it is not RECOMMENDED in other task.
5) Huge waste of time!!! Human being won't see difference between 2-pass and 3-pass. Unless you are cyborg.

decimate is available ONLY if source has 29.97 fps or 59.94fps!
SRT subs are alot more popular than SSA or ASS.

2) Did you even bother to enter bitrate manually???>_> whoops…
3) Simplicity Amigo, Simplicity. Tell me Who encode for instance AC3 audio at 345kbps???
not anyone sane, I didn't mean for encoding that high or or arbitrary a bitrate either, but I think limiting the choice to 64HE, 96LC and 128LC is a little silly, I'd just like to be able to use 112kbps or 192 in both profiles at least. neither profile are limited to those bitrates are they? I know Vorbis isn't.
4) What is point to normalize audio below 100%??? 200% was added ONLY for PSP users. It helps a little bit to increase audio volume but it is not RECOMMENDED in other task.
below 100%: if the source audio is too loud, you'd want to lower it
between 100 and 200%: if the source audio is too quiet, but not so quiet that you'd want to boost it by 200%
over 200%: ya got me, the hard of hearing?
5) Huge waste of time!!! Human being won't see difference between 2-pass and 3-pass. Unless you are cyborg.
I'm not quite a cyborg, but I do notice little slight differences, I know most people don't see them, but I do. it's not a major thing, I would've liked the option though.
decimate is available ONLY if source has 29.97 fps or 59.94fps!
is that a limitation of AVISynth (or something else ripbot uses)?
SRT subs are alot more popular than SSA or ASS.maybe that doesn't apply to anime subbers, since I've only ever seen SSA or ASS used in them. but besides that, MKV is still compatible with all 3 (and USF, I wish that wasn't abandoned), why limit people to one format? if MP4 or BlueRay are limited to SRT, limit those, but MKV isn't and shouldn't be.

Is it somehow possible to convert avi files with FLV1? When I try to open one generated from FLV extract Media Player classic opens displaying that FLV1 is not supported. Is it somehow possible though?

Atak_Snajpera - thx again for the app. Having made a few rips with it now - experimenting with different bit rates and resolutions and working out conversion times. There is a big time saving using 1280x720 over 1920x1080 - more significant than using the same resolution with half the bitrate.
So "generally speaking" would i get a better picture with a 1280x720 file with 8192 Bit rate compared to a 1920x1080 file with 4096 Bit rate? Or am I better off with the full HD resolution at the lower bit rate.
Thx for any advice.

50 mb is enough

AAC is very efficient codec. 128kbps is comparable to 192 mp3 so i see no reason to use higher bitrate. The same rule applies to ogg as well. I also see no reason to use 112kbps. 128-112=16. You would save whole 16kbps :) Silly

below 100%: if the source audio is too loud, you'd want to lower it
between 100 and 200%: if the source audio is too quiet, but not so quiet that you'd want to boost it by 200%
over 200%: ya got me, the hard of hearing?
200% = always distorted sound. You increase audio volume above scale.
If your source was normalized above scale lowering volume won't fix that. Audio will always remain distorted.
Lesson for: 200% for PSP ,100% for rest.

I doubt

next version will support SSA and ASS...

If you did your math you would know that Full HD footage has ~2 times more pixels to encode therefore it requires proportional higher bitrate. HD should have 4Mbps and FullHD should have 8192.
Conclusion is that 720p at 8Mbps will always look better than FullHD at 4Mbps!

Because, most of my videos are interlace.

Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telecine#2:3_pulldownOK, while one of the more important forms of telecine, 2:3 pulldown isn't the only form of frame decimation. I actually wasn't kidding about the 120fps video I've got (119.88, to be exact, it was probably interlaced 59.94 originally)

After I cut it to 50Mb using TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 with DivX Authoring, I can rip that 50Mb video by RipBot.
So I guess there is no point to upload it.

Is there a way to add the ability to open EVO files?

Or, at least, to open MKV files that contain VC-1 video?

I'm trying to archive my Hd-DVDs (since they are now officially extinct :) ) and most seem to be VC-1. So ifVC-1 can be added, that would be the greatest thing since they invented sliced bread!!:p

Thanks!

This request pertains to all the conversion GUI's. I have read through most of the pages of this and the other GUI threads but not seen any terminology guides. For people used to only one click conerters like DVD shrink an explanation on each of the main settings and how they effect conversion and movie quality would be very useful . If someone has the time it would be much appreciated.
All codec settings, bitrates, buffer sizes etc
Thanks for any help

I have the same problem witha PS3 mp4 I made - size is 4.2gb - plays on PC but PS3 shows as corrupted data . Same reason I guess? If so is it because consoles not using NTFS file system?
Rather than re-encode the whole file (took 20 hours lol) - Is there a simple way to split the mp4 file into 2 parts without losing any quality?

20 hours???

I have heard this from a lot of people here.

I wonder why it only takes 4 to 6 hours on my machine?

I am going to re-encode from the original disk with only one pass keeping the original size.

This should keep the re-encode time down greatly.

Hopefully this will work for streaming to XBOX360.

20 HOURS - was encoding a 2 hr movie ( dog day afternoon ) 4m bitrate 1920x1080 HD using the PS3 4.1 profile - Core2duo E6600 2gb ram . Do you have a much more powerful PC or are you encoding to lower settings?
