Hello to all,

I have searched this thread and i apologize if there is an obvious answer. Can the ripbot ini be configured to place the temp folder on a NAS accessed by a cifs share.

Can anyone help me with this? I tried searching through the thread but wasn't able to find anything. I am currently ripping a separate file with MakeMKV and merging them with MKVmerge but would really like to eliminate that step from my process.

Just mux them in manually, for god's sake.

That's what I do now and am looking to remove from the process. If you don't want to help, keep your comments to yourself. Thanks.

Just wondering if there would be any advantage in having Ripbot's temp folder, all on it's own, on a separate hi speed HDD or SSD ???

I've noticed that way too often when I start a job/queue, it can take a very long time to do the "copying to shared folder" & "indexing" process, even when you have nothing else is using the HDD that the temp folder is on.

Any suggestions ???

Thanks for reply, Atak, I will give it a try with a separate 7200rpm HDD 1st, and if it's "good", I will try an SSD.

Still having problems with the newest x264 builds (official), not reporting the x264 [info] in the generated log file. The last build that report the info (eg. Avg QP, Final Ratefactor, etc) was build 2345.

I'm currently trying out build 2377, it sometimes reports ONLY the 2nd pass, and that's with 20-30 min shows, but with longer movies, it only reports on the settings used, what it muxed & how long the encode took.

ANY help would be appreciated.

Not using DE mode, just normal 1 machine encoding, but I'm guessing the problems are related.

I've been getting that 0000494A error for awhile now. I noticed that the videos usually have an odd resolution. I've been reencoding the mkv files and that usually does it. I have had maybe one of the last 10 that it didn't get rid of the error. What version of Haali Media Splitter should I be using, just in case the one I'm using is wrong???

Hello all. I may be asking a question that was once answered but my apologize as I can't seem to locate it.

I would like to change my temp folder to another drive other than "C". Is this possible. I tried changing it in the ini file but got errors.

Reason is that my "C" dive is a low capacity SSD that I simply use for quick booting purposes. I installed everything including program & data on "D", "E" & "F".

:thanks:

@Viper714
In the RipBot264.ini change "StoreTempFilesin=" to the drive letter of your choice in my case it's F.
So the line would read:

StoreTempFilesin=F

First of all - I really like RipBot264 and have recommended it to numerous friends. Thanks for this extremely useful tool!

I made the mistake of recording my FIL's memorial service with breaks at 30-minute intervals to keep file sizes under 4GB each. The basic specs for the camcorder's resulting video files are:

MPEG4 Video (H264) 1920x1080 29.97fps [Video]
Audio: Dolby AC3 48000Hz stereo 256kbps [Audio]

The plan was to join them when I got home in a lossless manner with a tool I'm most familiar with that does it - VideoRedo TVSuite 4 - and then cut if/where necessary into a file(s) that could then be re-encoded to various filesizes with RipBot264.

So far I don't seem to have a problem re-encoding the original 30-minute segments with RB264, but it seems that once they've been altered in any way by VRD (even just a no-re-encode save), they can no longer be re-encoded by RB264 without issues. The issues are that the audio and video either get out of synch or the job "finishes" prior to the video being re-encoded. This is something that never happens when re-encoding with VRD, but I can't get anywhere near the same resulting quality per filesize as with RB264 (most notable at severe compressions).

So I guess I could simply use RB264 to re-encode from the original files only, but this really limits the flexibility I have to give people the kind of files they prefer. Besides, I'd really like to have an understanding of what's going on so I can avoid such issues in the future.

For reference, I've attached the MediaInfo details for an original file out of the camcorder (MediaInfo - JVC.txt) and what it looks like after being lossless saved out of VideoRedo TVSuite 4 (MediaInfo - VRD.txt).

-------------------
Edit: Well, VidCoder seems to be re-encoding the non-re-encoded VRD files, so hopefully any quality difference will be negligible.

Well, I am having nothing but issues with RipBot264. I have been using it since 1.17.3 and it has worked fine before. At first I wanted to use a machine just to handle the main task of farming out the tasks to other high powered machines in my home. That is the reason I want to use a different drive because i have an SSD in the Main machine. So I have One Master and three slave machines. I run two servers on each of the slaves and the master maintains and hands out the queues. The master .ini file placed the temp on drive E and writes the final mkv on drive E as well.

Everything seems to go well until I get half way through Pass 2 and it just freezes. The encoding dialog says "RipBot264 Client (Not Responding).
http://i361.photobucket.com/albums/oo54/pcubillos/Snapbucket/11-24-2013205-49-5620PM2.jpg

So I decided to change the Temp back to C drive. Same issue. I decided to have my desktop PC to not only act as a slave in converting but be the master machine as well in handing out the queue. The original master is still holding the original rip created by AnyDVD. Same problem.

Also noticed the server windows on the other slave machines are also frozen and (not Responding). Have to force closed. Just fyi I have a cat "6' network for added throughput.

Can some one please advise what would be my next step??

Hi Everybody,

Got some problems now that i'm under windows 8.
Launch Ripbot, add a task, quit, launch Ripbot .. the task list is empty.
My temp folder is in the D drive, looking in it i can see that the "job1" folder is deleted as soon as i quit Ripbot... ?!!?

I've tried launching tha application in Windows 7 compatibility mode, same, with administrator rights ... not better..

Isn't there an ini file in the temp folder with all pending jobs in it... ? Cause i can't see any...

does it always hang at the same point? does encoding client hang even with one local server? can you try runnig ripbot on other machines in order to isolate any stabilty issues?

1st December 2013, 21:24
Atak: Thank you for the quick response!!


Majority of the times it hangs on Pass 2.
I have tried encoding 2 different AnyDVD (2 different movies) rips on two different machines. One a 64 bit and the other is a 32 bit (.ini file : "Usex264x64=0").
Sometimes the encoding works, but sometime it crashes. Very Strange. No set reason.
Haven't tried running it on one PC by itself. Will try that overnight.
I did get one crash where three of the four computers had a avs2yuv.exe crash.


I do notice that when it crashes, all of the servers on all of the machines become non-responsive. It is not until I kill the program on the main computer/server.

Would any kind of a log help you.

Atak_Snajpera
1st December 2013, 21:41
when avs2yuv.exe crashes this means that decoder crashed (fms2) . are you sure your cpu is 100 perent stable? i'm asking becauese first pass went without problem.

Viper714
1st December 2013, 22:51
Atak:
As far as stability stability I would have to say yes. All four machines are stock and are not overclocked in any way. Further more I have converted several blu-rays in the past. This has only recently begun to happen. I would say within the last two weeks. The 32 bit machine i mentioned is a clean machine with Media center and Shark007 Codecs.

Not sure if that would be of some informational use. I can sent you a Belarc Advisors profile of my 64 bit system if you can provide me a secure email to send it to ...

Is there a way to change the size of the chunks that the distributed server will make? It would be nice to shrink the job size to more chunks for when you have a bunch of servers.

Atak_Snajpera
7th December 2013, 11:41
smaller chunk size may not be optimal.
in 2-pass mode shorter chunk may noticeable reduce quality (flattened overall bitrate)
in cq mode it may increase total encoding time (starting process steals few seconds)

Thanks for the quick reply!

Yeah...I have 2TB available and was just only doing 1 job. I am trying again...

Also...I am doing this on a WD 2TB black drive, so it is speedy but the indexing is incredibly slow. It took 2 hours to index before finally going into DE. I did an HD tune on the drive and avg 85.9 MB/sec xfer rates. I tried it on the SSD (150 MB/sec avg) as well, but still took almost just as long. System is a dual-quad Xeon 2.5ghz server.

Went into resource manager and noticed that the ffmsindex always avgs 3 MB/sec during the index. I don't remember ever being that slow when I used ripbot last year.

When you get that error check whether all chunks (x.264 files) are created or not.

Trayman
10th December 2013, 19:23
If there is a file missing vjoin reports Not all input files exist.
So it shouldn't crash if a file is missing.
But if one of the files is removed during the join it crashes.

I will add a check for drive space before starting the join and check again before trying to open the file to mend the "lost" file crash.

The new version can be found here vjoin-3.0.0.4.zip (http://tray2.se/files/vjoin-3.0.0.4.zip)

Cheers Trayman.

That's whats odd...I just let the program run overnight and I woke up to that error, so I know I didn't inadvertently move a file...there is another job wrapping up soon, so I will see if it does the same thing.

Also...thanks for the updated vjoin.

11th December 2013, 14:40
Ok...I tried to encode my movie again last night. I realized I had the wrong version of FFDshow, so I had fixed that on all my clients as well as updating Trayman's vjoin.

Everything worked fine, but still after the encoding was complete, ripbot just hung there "Gathering information" for like 20-30 minutes. I check resource monitor under memory/disk use and the system was basically idling. There were no processes by ripbot being used. I went back to the directory where movie .x264 should have been stored and didn't see it.

So I don't know what's going on.

You can mux it manually if you have the temp files

You need to run CombineAllChunks.cmd inside folder jobx\Chunks and then run jobx_MuxFiles.cmd inside folder jobx

BUT i can't find the .mp4 data on my Computer. I really don't know what this is, I hope you can help me :(

Edit: Ok, i think you're right, my C partition just has got like 4 GB, the problem is, that Rip bot decodes the video and audio in the "temp" folder.
So i got a 2 GB video.264 data and a audio data, then he muxes both together but still on the C partition and then sends the final video to the output folder.
Can i change the RipBot264temps folder?

After DE finishes, the server just sits there, w/o even any error. Doesn't mux or anything.

Interestingly, even muxing manually doesn't appear to work though chunks are all there.

Wtf?

This makes the program in effect unusable.

Perhaps this can shed some light? Found it in the Logs folder:

Firstly, I'd like to say thanks for all your efforts on this excellent piece of software. I have been using it for a year or so now and it makes my life so much simpler and is very easy to use. Please keep up the great work! :)

I've recently started using distributed encoding but I am finding that on my main PC it isn't using all the CPU properly - only utilizing 1 or 4 cores.

I either need to get it to use all four cores or I need to increase the number or instances of the Encoding Server running. I'd prefer the first option if it's possible.

Also, are there any command-line arguments for the encoding server so that I can specify the IP address and port number to use?

Thanks
Tony

Unfortunately resizer is single threaded (bottleneck effect)

Ah, ok - that's a pity. Multiple instances are working so at least I can get around it.

One last question: why does it have to copy the tools and the source video file to a shared folder every time? I have shared the RipBot tools folder and the source video folder is also shared. What am I missing?

Cheers
Tony

Atak_Snajpera
1st January 2014, 16:11
Because all remote PCs must have access to those tools and video file. Besides it is easier for me to have all necessary files in one Job folder (paths and so on). For better stability source file is also remuxed to .mkv (audio and subtitles are discarded to save space). Indexer works better with mkv files.

1st January 2014, 19:05
I would also like to express my thanks for your wonderful software. Once I figured out the interface, especially the forced sub-titles, I've had a very easy time recoding to mkv.

However, even though I have a hex-core Intel processor which OC'd to 4.2 GHz, and 32 GB of 2133 RAM running at full speed, I'd like to see if the recoding process will run faster. Therefore, I'd like to know if redirecting the temporary files for the recode from a SATA3 HD (7200 RPM) onto a suitably sized SSD (SATA3) would appreciably increase the throughput, resulting in a reduction of recode time. Any assistance you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Best regards and Happy New Year! The Beagle

Hi Atak, was there a particular reason for not using the latest x264 r2377? Thanks for adding Opus audio, i'm also wondering if there would be a way for me to use QAAC without manually editing job"x"_encodeaudio.cmd in the temp directory before starting the encode. Is there a way to use command line options inside of ripbot264 for the audio compressors, i'd like to use VBR modes instead of CBR. Thanks again, always excited to see an update from you.

Yes, the fraunhofer compressor clips at lower frequencies in both its cbr and vbr modes. In this example I used both fraunhofer and qaac in 320kbps cbr mode and their max vbr modes. Click on images for original size.

Flac Lossless 1.62GiB, nothing clipped up to 24khz full-range :)
http://i.imgur.com/lP1PPfFl.png (http://imgur.com/lP1PPfF)

Fraunhofer CBR 320 328MiB, clipped at just under 16khz.
http://i.imgur.com/cFk0zmXl.png (http://imgur.com/cFk0zmX)

Fraunhofer VBR 6 615MiB, clipped at 22khz.
http://i.imgur.com/86Px54Vl.png (http://imgur.com/86Px54V)

Qaac CBR 320 328MiB, clipped at just under 17khz.
http://i.imgur.com/MEqeN8Ml.png (http://imgur.com/MEqeN8M)

Qaac TVBR 127 734MiB, represents up to 24khz full-range.
http://i.imgur.com/hUt2C3Il.png (http://imgur.com/hUt2C3I)

Im suggesting a switch to Qaac as it does have a mode that can support the upper frequencies and even its cbr mode handles better as well. There was a listening test over at hyrdrogenaudio forum that favored Qaac too, although those tests were performed at 96kbps.

My Qaac settings look as follows: "E:\ripbot264\Tools\qaac\qaac.exe" --tvbr 127 --quality 2 --adts --threading --silent --ignorelength - -o "E:\Temp\RipBot264temp\audio.aac"

Sorry but your method does not measure all aspects of perceived quality. QAAC preservers extra 0.75kHz-1kHz but does this mean that it always sound better than Fraunhofer's encoder? For example HE-AAC 128 kbps can "preserve" (SBR) whole range (22.1kHz/24kHz) but does this mean it will sound better than LC-AAC 128 kbps with cut off point at 16kHz/17kHz?

I know my method is just a visual representation but, several listening tests have been done as well, the following has a couple compiled together http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?p=1574350#post1574350 SBR is only an approximation and will never sound as good. The audible differences are noticeable between them in their max quality modes, qaac being the better sounding, bass response is better and transients are sharper.

True, opus is the best for anything that isn't over 20khz, however it is hard limited at 20 by their developers and isn't best for preserving the upper range. Your example doesn't feature a track that goes above 20Khz and most modern movies do go up to 24Khz. I'm not asking that fraunhofer or opus be replaced but to add the option to use an external encoder with a script.

CoreAudioToolbox.dll and CoreFoundation.dll found in Apple Application Support.msi If you have iTunes installed you already have the files and QAAC will use them. If you are like me and don't particularly like apple ;) You can download Itunes and extract the "AppleApplicationSupport.msi" file and install just that portion.

I have a constant problem in attempting to encode a BD which is MPEG-2, not AVC as usual.

I don't know what else might affect it but once my encode is done, it skips frames, or delays them and at times it's like there's two frames present at the same time in rapid succession.

It's very hard to explain. Atm I'm trying with Mulder's GUI if same stuff remains, but if not, it's something with RipBot.

edit: Tested. Encode w/o problems when encoding with Mulder's GUI. Apparently Ripbot doesn't like BDs with MPEG-2 coding...

@chane2k1: Thank you, I appreciate it.

However, I think frankly you can chalk it up, like Atak usually does, to me not cherishing the robust nature of the program enough.

My avs scripts are constantly modified and even though it always works (though Atak believes it shouldn't) and I haven't had many problems I couldn't have solved on my own,

I think at this moment it's the case of employing, say, MAnalyse/MDegrain in conjunction with BD MPEG-2 source (still officially m2ts, but not 'structured' like AVC) which blows everything up.

I don't know what else to think because the exact same script worked flawlessly in Mulder GUI.

Don't want to clutter this thread. If you want to, I can PM my script, or keep the conversation there, whichever you guys see fit.

Hi Atak,

The problem with DTA-MA audio that made the Ripbot264 Crashed, not resolved in the new version.

"Exception EConvertError in module Ripbot264.exe at 0000949A.
'Unknow / 1509000' is not valid floating point value.

Thanks.

Helloes!

I'm trying to convert a wmv video file to mkv but ripbot says it cannot determine the fps and i must use the fps paramater in the .avs script.

OK so this looks pretty easy to follow, I find the temp folder, I edit the .avs file with notepad, add a fps parameter and then I save and exit. But the contents from the temp folder get deleted afterwards and then... I'm kinda confused with this and I'm probably missing something very obvious.

Please, I would need someone to guide me step by step.

Hello All,

I keep receiving the EAccessViolation in the Encoding client. I only get the message on certain Blu-Rays and after doing some research it fails everyone that has DolbyTrue HD as the audio track. Does not matter if you try down convert or copy stream. It fails after indexing at the point where the chunks are to be created (none are created). However, the program does convert these in stand alone mode without a problem. The conversion format is AVCHD.

Summary, DTS titles DE works but fails on TrueHD titles but will convert them in stand alone (non-DE) mode.

Thanks to all,
Atak (great program!) and everyone else for their responses.

Record your desktop with fraps or other similar software and upload video to www.mediafire.com. I want to see what is happening on your pc.
BTW. I do not think it has something to do with audio because audio is not encoded by client.

Sir,
Here is the link http://www.mediafire.com/download/rjd4q5twyqrc4cq/ripbot.avi. I restarted the process from the beginning with the new version. Same result.

I agree with you on the audio but this is the third Blu-Ray that has failed DE and all were Dolby TrueHD. I know it sounds odd to me also, but I encode one with DTS-MA after to check and all is fine.

The previous version 1.17.4 was the one that gave me the original error. It is identical to the one I recorded and fails in the exact same place with the exact same error.

As a long shot, you didn't happen to throw in a verbose log or debug switch in the program?

My HTPC had the older version of RipBot installed and it gives me the same error. I also noticed that when previewing the script there is no audio on the TrueHD files but there is audio on the DTS files. NicAudio problem? Haali also shows there isn't an audio channel being processed.

I can't add wmv files in mmg.exe
I have tried remuxing the wmvs to mkv with dsmux and the muxing fails at a specific time. This makes me believe that something else is problematic in the videos.

What I noticed, let's say my file is 20 minutes long, I remux it, it fails at certain point but creates a 5:39 minutes file.
When I open my original 20 minutes video, I notice that my player kinda skips a second (it goes faster than a second from 5:38 to 5:39) right at the 5:39 mark.

That worked like a charm. Even down converted the audio and video (IPOD Classic) just to give a try and no problems. Of course the info in the encoding settings window is still wrong but DE works. Awesome!
I did look at the Nicaudio page and as of its last update the TODO list was for Dolby to support Dolby Digital Plus so I can assume it's a no go for Dolby TrueHD. I guess that leaves eac3to using libav to get the info if possible.

Thanks for all the work!

Thank you in advance!

Even clsid (one of the supporters of ffdshow) states that ffdshow tryouts are halted and LAV is superior to them.

Nothing stops you from having ffdshow as well. I have both and everything works.

Wishbringer
18th January 2014, 10:46
@aldix:
That was not the question. We too have ffdshow, and we also have LAV installed. But ffdshow it isn't further developed. LAV is better.
But Ripbot demands ffdshow. It would be nice to switch to LAV and remove ffdshow.
It's like having VC2013+ installed and a programm still demands VC6.

In many things ppl can customize Ripbot (of course without support of Atak).
e.g. changing to newer x264, using newer tsmuxer, newer mediainfo, newer mkvtoolnix, newer mpc and so on.
Ripbot doesn't check their versions. It's on customizers to have a working system and useable output.
But ffdshow was slowly developed and bugfixed.
Example: in the past with release of Win8 all my encodes were flipped topdown because of ffdshow, so I had to use a win7 VM to further use Ripbot

aldix
19th January 2014, 02:00
Well, personally I use ffvideosource primarily (DSS does all kinds of odd things for me) and that appears to link directly to LAV, I don't see ffdshow ever getting active like with DSS.

There's lots of stuff, upgrade-like, to want from RipBot (personally I'd like to see DGIndexNV implemented), but this isn't, after all, a pay product and one shouldn't treat it like one.
Ultimately, whatever happens / changes is Atak's personal choice.

Hmm, I've been having constant troubles with TS.

Program demuxes the audio track, but doesn't transfer demuxed video into the job folder, but instead leaves the source marker (for lack of more adequate phrase) to point at original TS location.

Because of that encode either doesn't start at all, or just starts locally w/o DE mode.

Can anyone confirm this and/or help me out somehow?

edit: doesn't even work locally. Sits at 'Please wait...' for about 30 seconds and then just finishes. Script is as basic as it gets:


#MT


#VideoSource

video=DirectShowSource("\\[redacted]\test.ts",audio=false).ConvertToYV12()

#Deinterlace

Hello all! i recently upgraded to a dual xeon processor workstation and was hoping to get a little help here. i have been using ripbot for several years now and it is by far the best solution IMO. my old rig was an i5 2500k and ripbot kept the processor pegged at 100% which was good. i move to a dual xeon and now ripbot keeps them pegged at 50%, so i am assuming it is only utilizing one processor. looked through the .ini and dont see anything i can modify. where can i designate the number of cores i want used? i would like to throttle them both at 100% if possible. thanks in advance!

Just enable distributed encoding and add additional encoding server sessions until your CPU is pegged as high as you want. For me it takes 3 sessions, but I've only one CPU (albeit quad core).

However, it's very unfortunate. I suppose I'll have to use something else and kludge it through remote connection (2nd PC is more used for encoding than first one).

ripbot searches for the demux the file "demuxlog.txt". strange, when I load a file in ripbot, there's no demuxlod.txt .. a bug, it is not. this message appears each video file which you load in ripbot or only this one?

Moreover, ripbot displays in the background that there is no audio. possibly this is the error that is causing this message ..

maybe it recognizes in you the audio file is not in the video.

Scroll some up and you'll see that Atak told someplace that he won't ever go beyond 2345, some compatibility issues or somesuch.

Nonetheless, you can always swap the relevant x264 files in the intended folder. It'll just be one of these (admittedly many) things you wouldn't get any support for in case something goes sideways.

that being said, i would like some clarification. ripbot has no problems with .ts files, just distributed encoding? i really want to find a way to utilize both xeon processors (e5607) in this machine. ripbot only pegs them at 50%, and it is actually slower than my single processor machine with an i5 2500k. twin processors should chew through these files like nobody's business!! is there any way i can use tsmuxer to create a file that ripbot can use in distributed encoding? thanks in advance!!

Wow, that's a great system you've got there, and very generous. I've done some coding recently for the community, and when you get rewarded for all the hard work you put in its a great feeling. Enjoy :-)

My old Q6600@3Ghz with 4GB can retire now ;)

I can't wait to see results in x264 FHD Benchmark :)

This Xeon is really fast or not?:D

Ultra fast ;) 3x faster than my old Q6600@3Ghz :) In Linx I get even 4x more GFLOPS (135 GFLOPS).

That's right, I expect this performance according to the tests I've seen. ;)
This cooler does a good job, and Poland also helps a lot with low temps.

Exception EFOpenError in Module RipBot264.exe at 000235DA.
Cannot open file ".....\job1\test.log".

There are at lest 2 older forum entries where people had the same problems, but the remedy was not clear.

I tried to deinstall RipBOT264 (Which is just a delete of a directory) and a reinstall. But this didn't help.

The following 4 files get created

getAVSerror.cmd
getinfo.avs
info.txt
job1.avs

The file getAVSerror.cmd has as contents:

C:
cd "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1"
"C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Kevin\Eigene Dateien\Downloads\RipBot264_1.17.5\Tools\avs2yuv\test.exe" "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs"

I am really lost because version 17.4 worked really well. Even after installing 17.5 yesterday i was able to encode some files, but today it doesn't work any more.

Just a side note: Instead of using two separate commands...
C:
cd "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1"

...you can simply do:
cd /d "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1"

Or alternatively:
pushd "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1"

The latter one has the advantage that you can go back via "popd" ;)

The file getAVSerror.cmd is generated by RipBot264.
So above comment is rather directed to developer of RipBot264.

Thank you for your answer

Yes I reinstalled all three. I even switched back to avisynth 2.5.8. I now tried out with simplest avs file having only 1 line, namely "Version()" and get error message quite fast. So error is not related to avs contents.

Some additional info for case where a "real" avs is used:

Ripbot264 processes to the point where it creates subtitles (a ssa file which is created by my avs script too). This means that Ripbot processes entire avs file. It also creates a .d2a file for mp3 which is included in avs script. So something goes wrong after all this processing.

VirtualDub plays the avs file without problems. I tried with StaxRip, MeGui and avanti and they all encoded without problems. But RipBot is really my favorite, and I would like to continue to use it.

Would it be possible to know which tool causes the specific error message? Wich tool wants to write (or read?) this file test.log? I noticed that in directory avs2yuv such a file exists, but it is created when RipBot264 is installed.:o

1) open cmd.exe as administrator
2) run getAVSerror.cmd from console
3) Has test.log been created in C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1 ?

No, console log is (I inserted a PAUSE)


C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1>C:

C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1>cd "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1"

C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1>"C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Kevin\Eigene Dateien\Downloads\RipBot264v1.17.5\Tools\avs2yuv\test.exe" "C:\Temp\RipBot264t
emp\job1\getinfo.avs"
Reading 1 / 1

C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1>PAUSE
Drücken Sie eine beliebige Taste . . .

and this creates in "...\job1" a file called

info.txt

with contents:

240
24.000000
0
0
0
440
80

was for avs with only version() statement. This seems logical as getinfo.avs contains


Import("C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Kevin\Eigene Dateien\SMIL\BSG10\Version.avs").ConvertToYV12()
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","Framecount")
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","Framerate")
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","AudioRate")
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","AudioChannels")
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","AudioLength")
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","Width")
WriteFile("C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\info.txt","Height ")
Trim(0,-1)

Finally I got RipBot264 1.17.5 working again. I cannot pinpoint the cause of the problem.

As last resort I moved the whole RipBot264 directory to another disk, and starting RipBot264 from there got it working.

configure ffdshow like this

Perhaps your OS does not have Windows Media Player with vc-1 decoder installed like Windows 7.

Audio
Format : Speex
Codec ID : 11
Duration : 1h 21mn
Channel(s) : 1 channel
Sampling rate : 11.025 KHz
Bit depth : 16 bits
Compression mode : Lossy


Is it possible somehow to make Ripbot recognize audio compressed with Speex codec ? Was just wondering since player recognizes it fine but when I load file in ripbot it tells me there is no audio track

Since I´ve updated my Ripbot it doesn´t work. :(

I´ve a Single PC without LAN-Connection.

Ripbot try to start always the Server Client and get the error
"Source File could not be Indexed". :eek:

I don´t need this Server-Lan-fuction. How can I deaktivate the Sever-Lan function???? :confused:

OK
you mean ....
change this in ripbot264.ini:

---------------------
// Supported input formats AVI / FLV / MP4 / MKV / DVD / HD-DVD / Blu-ray
UseDistributedEncoding=0
----------------------------

What is about supported input formats (AVI,FLV,MP4,DVD,HD-DVD,BD) ?

Are this the Input formats only for DistributedEncoding?
Or are they now deaktivated for whole Ripbot?

PS:
After change to 0 it works.
:helpful:

Atak, I'm very pleased that you got a new setup from such a generous Metaphor. Your hard work in creating the incredible software that we use is just outstanding. I also am very grateful as all of my Blu-rays have been converted with your incredible software.

If you have a moment, for the first time in a long time, I'm experiencing a problem. I did re-arrange my physical temp drives around. But the drive letter is the same. But now, when I'm trying to add a blu-ray to the queue, it hangs on "Please Wait... Demuxing selected streams... 1%" and never moves from there. Hunger Games: Catching Fire, actually never got past Analyzing Streams...

I've searched through the thread, but I could gain any insight into this problem. Thanks very everything, again. Your work and software is incredibly appreciated.

First thought. Bad rip ? New encryption not removed correctly by AnyDVD ? Are you using win8? I'm guessing now.

I do have AnyDVD installed on this computer, but for the most part, I do not use it to rip anything on it. I've tried three different discs with all of the same results. I even have an old rip sitting on the server that I tried.

Win8, not a chance. I'm not that masochistic.

Do you still have a debug version available? It's not putting anything in the Logs folder yet.

Try ripping your BDs with latest AnyDVD. Also you can manually execute Blu-Ray_ExtractStreams.cmd in /Job1/ folder to see if there is any error message in console.
