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?

Yeah I guess I do.

Quad Core Extreme 6850
4GB Ram
1TB Raid(stripping)

I usually pick 2 pass and use about the same settings.

You couldn't add that mkv due to bug in my app. (Videos without audio didn't work). It will be fixed in next version.

here you go, 37.5MB, 1280x720x119.88fps divx6.8 mp3
Decimate from 119,88 -> 23.976 will be also added.

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.)

Fixed. Wait for new version.

Just had problem with BluRay Chicken Little . Program finishes at the end of Pass 1 - with "all jobs done"- video.264 is zero bytes and no movie is created. Tried twice with same result. I tried manually running job1_EncodeVideoPass2.cmd before closing the program and cmd message is x264 error - cannot find job1 stats. Job1.stats.temp is in the temp\job1 directory tho.Text in pass2.cmd is:

Any suggestions to fix ?- I saved all the temp files before closing Ripbot.

Also - soory to ask again but is there a simple way to split my 4.2gb mp4 files - I actually have 2 of them and would rather not re-encode the whole movies again.
Thx for your help.

Well, after muxing in my AC3 with the VC-1 video into an MKV file, I can get Ripbot to open, read and prepare to re-encode them. It even allows me to select resizing them to 1280X720.

Now my last question: I want to burn it as a mini-Bluray (DVD-4). Is the blu ray selection an ISO, or does it generate the folder structure for burning?

Looks like a great product!! Just need to know what to expect when I get the finished product.

I just tried to run this (after updating all the tools) and x264.exe (826) rejected a command you sent. Reverting back to the original x264 encoder allowed it to start encoding. (still running)

Below is the log from the first attempt with the newest x264 engine:

Two questions?
1. Where do I get the newest .modified. versions of x264?
2. what does the --nal-hrd command do?

I'm running a newer, lower end PC (E6300 1.86Ghz Core2Duo, 3GB Ram), and I started the run 11 hours ago. The entire movie is 1:38. I still have at least another hour to go. Is this about the time I should expect per movie?

So far, this is the easiest tool for vc-1 to h264 conversion I've found!

After umpteen (12+) hours, the encode finished! .bluray created the entire folder structure. Burnt to disc with Imgburn. Disc plays flawlessly on my PC and testing on a friends PS3 (mine is on next month's budget) to ensure it plays.

Awesome and flawlessly simple!

Some feature requests?
1. Allow reading of EVOs (eac3to is already part of package)
2. Allow choice of single-pass, ABR encoding (for rush jobs)
3. Allow adding additional filters to the AVS script (I would love to add undot, for example, or a temporal smoother for extra grainy film sources).

Otherwise? LOVE IT!!!

2. Allow choice of single-pass, ABR encoding (for rush jobs)

Definitely a good idea - also it would be nice and time saving to choose the audio file and then demux (rather than demuxing all streams automatically - esp pcm-flac conversion and movies with many audio streams).
Tried 3 different gui's now and this is definitely the best in terms of simplicity and end product quality.
The above requests and any options that can help save time on the lengthy encoding process would be great.

BTW - the only movie i had trouble with was chicken little bluray. I did manage to encode by using the ripbot264's .cmd's manually . I only ran pass1 and mux files.By only doing the first pass the Movie was very good quality with pixelation only noticeable in the credits.

Can you add the ability to import the chapter list (like those created by eac3to) to allow skipping through the movie?

mpiper
30th April 2008, 02:44
If you use eac3to (and one of the GUIs, I like "eac3toGUI.exe" which I found on this board), it generates a full demux. Here is what I got from demuxing an HD-DVD I am encoding with your program:
PEVOB_1 - 3 - VC-1, 1080p.vc1
PEVOB_1 - 4 - E-AC3, English, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz.eac3
PEVOB_1 - 5 - E-AC3, French, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz.eac3
PEVOB_1 - 6 - E-AC3, Spanish, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz.eac3
PEVOB_1 - 7 - E-AC3, English, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz, 'Commentary'.eac3
PEVOB_1 - 8 - Subtitle, English, 'SDH'.sup
PEVOB_1 - 9 - Subtitle, French.sup
PEVOB_1 - 10 - Subtitle, Spanish.sup
PEVOB_1 - Chapters.txt

The command line I used was:
"L:\HD\eac3to\eac3to.exe" "L:\FullDisc\DVD_VOLUME\HVDVD_TS\PEVOB_1.EVO"+"L:\FullDisc\DVD_VOLUME\HVDVD_TS\PEVOB_2.EVO" "L:\FullDisc\DVD_VOLUME\HVDVD_TS\PEVOB_1vc1"-demux -stripPulldown


Hope this helps!

thanks for ripbot excellent program.

is there any possible way to fix audio sync issues? so far re-encoded two .TS files with MPEG2 and 5.1AC3 to H264. In both files there was sync issue with audio when output to blu-ray folder.

took the finished file loaded in tsmuxer, took the original audio stream muxed it back, and audio sync is fine.

mpiper
30th April 2008, 15:34
The two GUIs I use for demuxing EVOs are:
http://madshi.net/EAC3toGUI.zip - this does the best job of demuxing every stream and creating chapters. 192kbps AC3 never works with this GUI, don't know why.

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=135095 - This one does a great job of converting EAC3 to standard AC3 at 192kbps or lower.

This may seem like overkill, but here is what I am doing right now:
1. Installing Ripbot and the required AviSynth/FFDShow/Matroska programs. I created a folder in "Program FIles" and added a link on my start bar for Ripbot264, so it looks and operates is if it were "installed."
2. Update the "tools" (If there is a newer version of a file, I rename the current one "file.old.exe", then copy the new one in and rename to match the original filename. I keep the old in case the new "breaks" ripbot.)
3. Copy the two eac3to GUIs into the eac3to folder in "tools" and put a shortcut on the desktop/startbar.

Then, to convert an HD-DVD to BR I use only the Ripbot264 tools, no extras needed. The finished movie fits on DVDs (4 or 9, depending on movie length).
1. Use eac3to and the GUIs to split the video and "downsave" the EAC3 to AC3.
2. Use TsMuxer to remux the video and new AC3 into a M2TS file.
3. Start Ripbot264, load the new M2TS.
4. Set video properties to resize to 1280X720.
5. Add the .sup subtitles in 2nd page of properties.(in container,not in picture).
6. Set bitrate (manually) to either 5120, 5630 (DVD4, adjust to fit), 7680 or 8192 (DVD9, adjust as needed).
7. Build to the Bluray profile.

Taking a 1920X1080 HD movie to 1280X720 keeps tons of detail, and the reduced number of actual pixels allows the lower bitrate to match the same quality level as the original. If I kept the videos at 1920X1080, like I have seen some people do, the drop in bitrate from 15,000kbps to between 5000 and 8000kbps results in very blocky/ugly encodes.

Just wanted to share my method of using this great program. The resulting DVDs have played as BluRay disks on 4 different PCs perfectly. Final test is if they work on a PS3. (I've been told they play perfectly by other users, but testing mine will happen this week to be sure my process works 100%.)

Before encoding always check if your video stream in TS always starts at IDR-Frame! If not then you get sync problems. h264-cutter should help you next time.

Set bitrate (manually) to either 5120, 5630 (DVD4, adjust to fit), 7680 or 8192 (DVD9, adjust as needed).
Why do you set bitrate manually???? Lock size does not work or what???

mpiper
1st May 2008, 00:52
The only reason I manually set bitrate is that the finished video was slightly oversized on a previous encode. (I blame TsMuxer, since same thing happened on a previous effort with it before I found your program.)

The numbers are merely multiples of 1024 (5, 5.5, 7.5, and 8). I learned a long time ago that certain players and encoders work best with multiples of 2 in all aspects (i.e. width and height of video, bitrate, audio encoding bitrate, etc.) so I always try to use multiples of 2, or multiples of powers of 2 (32, 64, 128, 192, 640, 1024, etc.)

Newer programs and codecs may not be so sensitive to the binary rule, but I still follow it. I am not remotely saying people should not use the "lock size" feature. I was just giving an example of how I was using it, starting from an EVO file to a finished BR disk.

I'm not the best at understanding or explaining this, but I'll try: The reason for using multiples or exponents of 2 is based on 3 things:

1. Odd numbers tend to divide leaving remainders, which get rounded, causing "errors" or shifts. For example, a video that is 321X240 can crash Adobe's Media encoder if the wrong codec is used, but 320X240 or 322X240 both work fine. Many open source encoders can finish the encode through brute force, but if a brand name encoder can crash, should we use that resolution.
2. Exponents of 2 utilize the physical structure of memory better. Look at the range of colors in RGB, 0-255 = 256 total, a multiple of 2, and also an exponent. These settings aren't by accident. It's the easiest and most effective way to store binary data. 8 bits = 2 to the 8th power, which is 256. Any less and you waste bits, any more and you roll to using an entire second set of bits (8 of them) for the next level, which again wastes memory, since 2 sets of 8 = 2^16 = 65536. So using a number like 313 requires that enough space for 65536 be used, but leaves tons of empty space. That is why Photoshop uses 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit color spaces (I think).
3. What if the number you choose happenes to be a prime number? Most calculations done in encoding involve dividing data (Think about the 2X2, 4X4, etc. settings in filters, matrices, etc.) How do you divide a prime number?

Not sure if that made sense, since I barely understand the entire codec concept, especially matrices (mpeg1,2,4) and anything remotely related to h.264. And now that memory is cheap, I'm not sure how much the old binary exponents matter in efficient coding practices. But that's the best I can explain it.

Only recently discovered Ripbot264 and use it daily to covert videos for iphone. My only wish is I'd like to 480x320 (Native iPhone Res) added in size templates.That would really save some time. And the ability to save jobs list in sort of text based file, so I could edit same parameters (size/crop) to apply for multiple videos.

Hope it's not too much trouble.
Thanks in advance.

It's the easiest and most effective way to store binary data. 8 bits = 2 to the 8th power, which is 256. Any less and you waste bits, any more and you roll to using an entire second set of bits (8 of them) for the next level, which again wastes memory, since 2 sets of 8 = 2^16 = 65536. So using a number like 313 requires that enough space for 65536 be used, but leaves tons of empty space. That is why Photoshop uses 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit color spaces (I think).
3. What if the number you choose happenes to be a prime number? Most calculations done in encoding involve dividing data (Think about the 2X2, 4X4, etc. settings in filters, matrices, etc.) How do you divide a prime number?

Not sure if that made sense, since I barely understand the entire codec concept, especially matrices (mpeg1,2,4) and anything remotely related to h.264. And now that memory is cheap, I'm not sure how much the old binary exponents matter in efficient coding practices. But that's the best I can explain it.


Yes I learned this in my first few months of Tech school...

I am now in Grphics art and disign... Just picked up video encoding as a half paced effort on my part to learn about all the different ideas about 3 years ago...

Only recently discovered Ripbot264 and use it daily to covert videos for iphone. My only wish is I'd like to 480x320 (Native iPhone Res) added in size templates.That would really save some time. And the ability to save jobs list in sort of text based file, so I could edit same parameters (size/crop) to apply for multiple videos.

Hope it's not too much trouble.
Thanks in advance.


PSP has similar vertical resolution 480x272 (16:9 or 1.78) . iPhone has 480x320 (1.5). if your movie has 16:9 aspect ratio then You must use 480x272 resolution (PSP profile). If your source has 4:3 then you use iPod profile. Simple!

Atak, you're probably right!:) I'm still very used to the older stuff (mjpeg was the video editing codec when I learned video editing, and miniDV didn't hit the market until 6 months after we started doing videos for my company.). So I just follow old habits.

Has anyone ever had any issues with the locks disc sizes in RipBot? i.e. the DVD4 and DVD9 ones? If they never go over the locked size, I may make life easier and use that. I'm just not sure how loose the variable rate is with x264, so I worry that a difficult encode might result in an oversized movie, which must be re-encoded to fit on a disc. (At 12-18 hours per movie, I'm not into repeats :D )

I have basically been using the lock to see the MAX bitrate that can be used for my movie, then rounding down to the nearest 1024 multiple, to allow for excess in the VBR. If the algorythms in your prog and x264 itself are tight enough to garrantee no oversizing, I'll use it for simplicity's sake.

BTW, a friend at work has been helping test the movies, and he wants to use your program, so I am writing a tutorial that includes installing, ripping, demuxing and then finally encoding. Writing it also is helping me bulletproof my process. RipBot264 is the featured program, so I'll post the finished product here at Doom9. (And I won't include my personal "quirks," only proper steps to garantee working movies.)

You can edit the templates and save them as you wish you know...

No, you can't, only x264 settings are part of profile. All setting of particular job stored in temp dir, if that's what you are referring to.

Great program, just one little strange thing. When I use it on the computer with two monitors, RipBot opens on the second monitor, which I do not always have turned on. I can drag it to the first monitor, but when I click ADD, that also opens on the second monitor. I am using "extend my desktop" for the second monitor which is a DLP HDTV used for playing files. Is there any setting I can change to get Ribbot to open only on the first monitor?

This because you have asked RipBot to encode the DTS-HD-MA track to AC3 640kpbs, you cannot do this as it needs to be converted into AC3. You have 2 options:
1.
Leave the audio profile as x.x copy stream and the final project will have a DTS-HD-MA audio track. Although this will play in some older versions of PowerDVD and the latest version of WinDVD it will not play in the latest versions of PowerDVD or a standalone Blu-Ray player as you have not made a AVCHD disk to spec. You will get just sound and no video or the reverse or a unknown format type error come up.

The AVCHD spec does not support DTS audio tracks, only AC3 5.1 upto 640kbps or LCPM 7.1 upto 1.5mbps:

http://www.avchd-info.org/format/index.html

2.
Demux the DTS audio track out, convert to AC3 with eac3to and remux AC3 audio track back and then feed this new .m2ts back into Ripbot

Discoboy

CQ is for Consistent Quality if you are looking for an exact file size try Bit-rate Encoding...

Thanks - I always use the 2 pass Bitrate method - I just wondered if there was any way to force a file size on a CQ encode.

Adub
7th May 2008, 05:24
There isn't. In order to keep with the "Constant Quality", every frame is the same general quality, but not the same quantizer. Thus if the quant varies from frame to frame, they have different sizes, resulting in a unpredictable file size. The only way to predict is to encode it atleast one or two times, and check the file size. Then adjust the crf value up or down, resulting in less or greater file size.

Sorry if that was a little fuzzy. Essentially you can't predict file size with CQ, only with n-th pass encodes.

Sharc
7th May 2008, 06:53
Size / crf predictions could possibly be made by producing sample clips using every 10th frame (or similar) of the movie only. This would shorten the time needed to estimate the final crf value.
Same method is used for mpeg2 1-pass encodes to find the appropriate Q value btw.

hi,
i just tested your app for the first time, 1.9.3 simple extract from 7z file

i'm a Megui user but i'm looking for a good powerful Gui but simple enough so i can recommand it to other people.

ripbot looks great.
i just opened one of my hdv clips, applied deinterlace, film denoise and encoded (2 pass).
the preview looked great but the encode failed during the 2nd pass (but doesn't report the error)

i looked at the log, it says this :
x264 [error]: failed to rename "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\job1.stats.temp" to "C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\job1.stats"

Could it be because my default temp folder is located on an other drive ?

Later i installed the 1.9.2 version from installer and it worked (without the denoiser, obviously)


i also didn't find the way to tell ripbot that i wanted my output to be anamorphic (hdv is 1440x1080i anamorphic 16:9, i'd like to keep the ratio without resizing)

i hope the feedback helps making your little software better

I gave it a try and I did different tests. there is still something not working properly, I think.
Now the audio section of most of my divx movies and tv episodes is correctly processed but it takes a loooooot of time (well at least compared to previous ripbot versions!). After adding a divx file ripbot says: PLEASE WAIT DEMUXING AUDIO STREAMS... This takes about 30 seconds to complete sometimes and in some cases it does not complete at all and after a long wait a warning window tells me:

FILE COULD NOT BE OPENED! (C:\Temp\Ripbot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 4).

The same divx file opened with ripbot 264 v1.9.2 works like a charm and audio is processed very quickly.

Custom/ import Chapter List - like the .txt file created by eac3to.exe
Allow custom matrix - esp. prestige for very grainy/old sources where keeping grain is desired
Include FGO - The newest modified x264 builds seem to be including a Film Grain Optimization feature. Increases compression, while preventing banding.

The Prestige and FGO are suggestions based on this thread:

I normally like to clean up grain, especially since the smoother the image, the better the compression will be, allowing more detail for the same file size. However, on the 5th page, there is an example of a 17Mbps source (300) with a 13Mbps copy, and a 9Mbps copy. The 9Mbps copy used Prestige and FGO, and resulted in a copy that fit on a DVD9 and still maintained the origional look of the film.

Honestly, the biggest request I have is for the chapter import, using the chapter list created by eac3to.exe.
Please! :thanks: Please!!!!!

Hi there Atak. I am really stuck and wonder if you can help. I use your program alot and find it amazing but everything i encode to 1080p always goes wrong. I either end up with a H264 error message or the file encodes fine but the audio cuts out half way through the movie.
This happens for alot of files not just a perticular one. Is there a known problem when encoding to 1080p. Alot of the times i am down sampling the audio from DTS to AC3.
Any help would be really appritiated.
Many thanks again for such a great program.

Ok... I am using MKV files that are 1080p. I am encoding to BluRay. I have to add borders using the option in the software and then i set ripbot to encode. Now when complete the file is usually around the 7.6gb mark and ends up with part audio missing. If i try to run it through tsmuxergui to add chapters it comes back as buffer overflow. Possible container streams are not syncronized.
Also some times when re encoding to bluray i get a windows error box pop up saying x264 has encountered an error.
Does this make sense ??? :)

Having a problem with audio from a camera-based MJPEG (avi) with PCM audio.

Programs says it's demuxing, says it's converting LPCM to FLAC and then when it gets to it, says NO Audio. I have also tried converting audio to a number of different formats with avidemux but RipBot still says No Audio.

I did, in desperation, try SUPER which worked flawlessly but have since uninstalled which may be causing some issues. I have reinstalled the latest 1.9.4 installer and avisynth 2.5.7 since then.

Anything I can do to fix the problem?

Ok, thanks. It's not me then.

Happened to try Staxrip in the meantime, the encoded file came out with slowed down audio (something else to sort out )but it left the .wav file handy so I'm now trying RipBot with it. Encoding atm.

I assume new version will be when it's done?

Edit2: Cutting the track out with avidemux (as I use it as my initial clip editor) works a treat it seems. Besides the little audio problem, everything looks sweet. Nowhere to donate?

Well, after experimenting a little with Virtualdub, I discovered the issue with the encodes. I am using WMV9 to decode. However, encoding a 1920X1080 to a mjpg (I have a comercial version that is incredibly fast) at 1920X1080 with the MSU denoise filer (set at 75,35) was going to take 2 days, 22 hours and some minutes. So, if you add any additional work (i.e. re-encoding to h264), you're looking at encoding times beyond belief! Just a side effect of the resolution and my processor speed I guess. After all, 1920X1080 is 6 times the pixelcount per frame.

I'm trying a similar encode but with a 1280X720 resize, which should cut down the encoding time by about half.

Just going to try out the denoiser with some older movies - but there are no profiles for this in the profiles directory. Where can i get the 2 denoiser profiles mentioned on page 1 or how do i activate denoising? Thx.

mpiper
14th May 2008, 04:09
Jamd1,

Once you load the video, click "Properties." The denoise function and profiles are on the third page of properties. This is VERY slow. However, it is PHENOMINAL! in what it can do to clean a noisy source.

To see the original source and an example (using SD video) the website is:
http://compression.ru/video/denoising/index_en.html

I love this filter, especially since they got GPU functionality added. The old one was VERY slow, even on DVD/ SD sources. The only problem is 720X480 video is only .3 megapixels perframe, while HD is 2.1 megapixels, a 700% increase in resolution and pixel count, meaning a very slow process for HD video. But if you have the processor (or time) to support it, this is an incredible way to clean film grain without sacrificing detail.

Hi


first of all: I like RipBot very much ;)
I tried doing the hole thing by myself (setting up a avisynth script and start x264 with right parameters)
but it didn't work out.
So RipBot is my choice.

There are just some little things, I would like to know:
i edited the .ini so that the iPod/iPhone profile is default.
When I convert a Video, I klick on "Add", search the Video, and then there is the "tricky" part: I need to resize my videos.
Because I have to do this with a lot of files, it would be nice if I could add the resize option
to the iPod/iPhone profile. That would save me 50% of klicks.

And it would also be nice, if there would be an option "convert all movies in directory xxxx".
If that would be possible, and RipBot would use the default profile with the resize, that would be almost perfect !


So if anything could be done, I would be very thankfull.

If I remux the .m2ts first ,downsampling the audio to ac3 with TSmuxer then Ripbot cuts the audio demuxing short ( by different amounts on every attempt- sometimes after 1min - sometimes after 5 or 7?????).

Hi atak any chance of adding a few more options to the gui please ?
1. custom cqm option
2 dead zones options
3 b-frame mode option
4 and maybe --fgo
5 aq strength
or if not a custom cmd line would be great
It would make it easier for me and others not to have to edit the job
cmd files all the time for e.g low dead zones for grain preservation
perhaps these options could be hidden from the average user and available to the more advanced user by editing the ini file like a hidden section
I know i could use megui but i like the way ripbot makes thing easy
by doing your muxing and working out bitrate and m2ts overhead thanks

Hi, thanks for the program, I've found it excellent in calculating bluray output with AC3 and srt.

However I've been having some oversize issues using DTS and bluray output. The two different movies I've tested so far have been 63-64 MB oversized. Both used target sizes of 4480MB(720p) and 8150MB(1080p). Could more accurate calculations with DTS to bluray output possibly be looked into?

Also, is there any plans for sup (original subs tsmuxer and xport+ spit out) support? In the 5 tests I've done I've concluded: <sum of all sup files> + 2-3 MB per sup file = m2ts file size increase.

I'll continue to do more tests. If more results and\or more accurate results could help I'm more than willing to share.

jamd1
16th May 2008, 22:53
In my above problem getting Ripbot to fully demux the audio from a remuxed .m2ts - the only way i could do it was split the 2 hour movies into 6 parts and ripbot each part - then join the re-encoded files back together. The 2 blu-ray movies with TrueHD sound i had problems with were "Across The Universe" and "Welcome To The Jungle". Whenever rejoining .m2ts files there is always a glitch on the join. Rather than joining and remuxing .m2ts files are there any tools to make a .mpls playlist for a reauthored bluray that will play the separate .m2ts files seamlessly.

Well I have a dual boot xp/vista setup. I rarely use vista but I thought I'd try Ripbot out with my problem movies. Surprise- The audio demux ran through perfectly first time. The only thing that was changed In my setup was that I installed the latest beta of ffdshow on vista (on xp I have the latest stable Dec07 version). Is this likely a Vista benefit or could the later ffdshow be the reason it worked?

@Atak_Snajpera:

Hi again. Since I've installed the new 1.9.4, all my newly generated AVC/H.264 files have not been able to be played by Apple QuickTime player. My previous version 1.9.2 has no problem producing files playable on QuickTime player.

QT player simply reports "Invalid sample description" and refuses to play it. VLC player on Mac has no problem playing it.

So I decided to use GSpot to check the video/4CCs and audio codec stored in the new mp4 files. I noticed one difference in the audio codec reported by GSpot. In the mp4 files produced by 1.9.2, audio was set to "mp4a: MPEG-4 AAC LC", whereas 1.9.4 set it to "mp4a: MPEG-2 AAC LC"

"mp4a: MPEG-2 AAC LC" is clearly an invalid codec in a MP4 container

Ref: http://wiki.multimedia.cx/index.php?title=Category:Audio_Codecs

Is there any reason for the change? Could you change it back to "mp4a: MPEG-4"?

Thanks a lot!

EDIT: Additional info - the video I was converting from is AVI DivX+MPEG1 Layer 3. While 1.9.4 insisted on demuxing my audio, 1.9.2 didn't and converted the audio directly from AVI to AAC. I hope this will help you debugging it.

Wow... I am amazed, what I was looking for was right here under my nose; I didn't expect your GUI "RipBot" to do what I wanted. Simply because I was under the impression that it would be like the rest of the application programs. I was wrong and I’m glad I was because I got what I was looking for, to be able to play one "MPEG4" file in both PSP and PS3 and at good quality for a great size is just what I wanted... First off Thank you Atak_Snajpera for making such a thing possible but I must know in order to appreciate your hard work... can you please teach me the way it works, i like to understand the ins and outs of how things work. I love to learn but I don't know where to start can you please give me an explanation I would be totally grateful for you. You don’t know the frustration of trying to Encode a video file that will work on both systems (PSP, PS3) I tried many different applications and all of them would work on only one or thy other two days of reading and fiddling around other programs lead me to giving up but a ray of hope shine me to yours. And I was just so happy and full of joy. I just want to know what the settings, limitations and requirements needed in order to play a proper MPEG4 for both PSP and PS3. Finding something and having it work is great, but learning how it works and why it works makes it even better. I hope you can understand me and my desire to learn please guide me to a idiot proof guidance because I’m not very Knowledgeable in a/v formats and encoding but I’m a fast learner.

I would like to get sample :) At least 50 MB
I managed to finally encode these 2 movies with ripbot - only using Vista though. I have used Ripbot 1.92 on other movies with True HD - and Ripbot has just ignored the TrueHD stream - only demuxing other audio. ( Beowulf worked ok with just 5.1 audio stream).
On these 2 True HD movies Ripbot 1.94 made an attempt at encoding the audio but using xp it cut the demuxing short before"gathering information". I tried it at leaset 20 times and a 2hr movie stopped demuxing after anywhere from 5 mins to 1hr 50 mins. When I finally got it working with vista - pass1 ran ok and pass2 ran with 1 vbv buffer underflow error - movie encoded ok. Sorry don't have the log any more.
Also a small sample might not be any good as the demuxing often ran well into several gb of .m2ts data.
This may be an isolated problem - although I have only done a few True HD movies.

After every encode finishes I get this error: "MP4Box.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.", but the encode still finishes and outputs the file. This is very annoying because if I don't click "Close" on the dialog with the error message RipBot will not continue encoding the other videos in the queue, which defeats the purpose of a batch encoder.

If you see characteristic horizontal lines in source then you must use deinterlace function to get rid of them.
If you notice that video is not smooth because contains repeated frames then you should use decimate function to delete cloned frames.

If you see characteristic horizontal lines in source then you must use deinterlace function to get rid of them.
If you notice that video is not smooth because contains repeated frames then you should use decimate function to delete cloned frames.

that is the case with the ntsc mpeg2 videos i have
but i just want to know whether to use top field first 29.97 or bottom field first 29.97

for this 1 minute sample i uploaded, top field first 29.97 seemed to give smoother video than bottom field first 29.97
for other ntsc video providing i am planing to ivtc them, should i always stick with top field first 29.97 ?
or it depend on each ntsc mpeg2 video ?
this is an important thing for me as i am planing to batch a lot of ntsc mpeg2 videos in 1 go

ok Im obviously missing a step or something somewhere. I have a couple blu-ray discs that I need to convert the vc-1 video to h.264 so I can stream it thru the ps3. I have them ripped to my hard drive and they are currently stored as m2ts files. I try inputing them into ripbot264 but im getting an error after a few minutes of it saying demuxing audio stream. The error im getting is as follows: DirectShowSource: RenderFile, the filter graph manager won't talk to me (C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 1)

Do i have to convert my video/audio file to another type first? If so could u give in depth info as I am very new to this. Thanks!

Atak - just tried ripbot on a few more True HD movies - same problem- The True HD stream demuxes with ripbot to a silent audio stream with what looks like the correct filesize. If I remux the movie with TSmuxer and downsample the audio to ac3 then the demuxing with ripbot using win xp cuts the demuxing short. Don't know if ripbot is supposed to support True HD audio - but if you want a small sample (20mb like the HD dts one i gave you) -let me know. Movies are spiderman 1 and 2 bluray.

Just tried demuxing True HD audio only (without downsampling) using both tsmuxer and tsremux - both produce different file sizes - yet both are silent.
It seems there is no way at the moment to preserve True HD when remuxing or riping bluray??

I have a filename error, I think it's related to the program ripbot is using to demux MP3 audio, but I'm not sure. with any files where I have an inverted question mark [ ¿ ] (I use them in place of normal ones), the audio fails to demux, and ripbot reports "NO AUDIO" in the audio profile box.
it's not a major problem, but it really shouldn't be having it

Remember. Some tools (and AviSynth as well) are not designed for unicode chars.

You have single core. What did you expect? You should invest in quad-core.

Yes, I figured maybe four times as long as a quad, but not over ten times longer. I just wanted to make sure this was normal.

Also, the program is awesome but I find selecting the audio tracks annoying. It would be great if you had a little player embedded in ripbot that would play the selected audio track from the drop down so you could determine quickly if it was Spanish, German, English, etc. Also, often I find the drop down is not wide enough to display the full path to the audio files. Perhaps making this a bit wider would help in determining which audio file you are selecting.

Keep up the great work.

One question, though, is there a lossless Profile? I couldn't find one (v. 1.9.6). If not, how can I max out the quality? I want the absolute best quality there is (as I'm not interested in compression, but merely need an AVC stream for compatibility reasons with the PS3).

Hello all,

very good work, thx!!!

I tried to "shrink" my Die Hard 4.0 (Euro) bluray disc to a blu-DVD9 as a first test run ;-)
AnyDVD ripped it to the hard disc, no problem so far. I chose the 4.1 profile, 8150 as target size and the german DTS source. I created a ISO image with imgburn, mounted it with daemon tools and tried to play it with PowerDVD 7.3 (latest update). PowerDVD recognized the image and started to play, but only for a few seconds. I can search/skip, no problem, but the video stops playing after 2-10 seconds depending to the scene, audio will play.

Any ideas? Is it a problem in PowerDVD, deamon tools ... ? Should I try it to burn in on DVD-9 disc?

unable to add aac audio (in mp4 container produced by megui) into mkv or mp4.

no support for d2v input? no option of saving jobs list?

I don't let RipBot264 do my audio. Why bother? When it's all done, I just use tsMuxeR to join the new AVC stream with the original audio track.

Playing the 00001.m2ts (in dir STREAM) as "standalone" with mpc, it's working perfect! Audio AND video are playing until I press stop ;-)

The 00001.m2ts plays also in PowerDVD without disruption, but here only video ...

I think this is probably more related to x264 itself, and I'll post a note there also, but, it seems that it's taking very little if any advantage of my multi-core system. on my single CPU Athlon64 2.20Ghz (Athlon 64 3400+) a 720x480 video will run at between 2.6 and 6.8fps taking a 24minute video roughly 2 to 3 hours to encode. using the same source file and the same options, on my dual-core athlon x2 1.68Ghz system, it does just about the same, which could be easily explained by sse3, ssse3 and the improved design of of an x2's single CPUs, but it seems that there's no gain from the second CPU at all. does x264 maybe need a command line option to use a second CPU?

Well, it better do something with my quad-core, as I physically see all 4 cores at 100%. :) But it would be nice to get some confirmation on this.

hrmm, how fast do your encodes run?

Depends. A 1080i source, all with insane high settings, around 10 hours; a full 1080p movie around 20 hours.

so my reply from the x264 thread was that it is a command line option which is off by default
--threads auto
I think the default is "--threads auto", which will detect the optimal number of threads for your computer (threads = 3/2 * cores)Default is singlethreaded, which, well, I disagree with that default :pis that being used?

So now, yes, please, let's hear back from the RipBot264 guy, and see what he actually uses. :)

Wow, RipBot264 seems the only program so far that managed to do what I wanted, hassle-free: convert 1080p VC-1 stream to AVC. Thanks!

One question, though, is there a lossless Profile? I couldn't find one (v. 1.9.6). If not, how can I max out the quality? I want the absolute best quality there is (as I'm not interested in compression, but merely need an AVC stream for compatibility reasons with the PS3).

Again, thanks!

Nero 8 will do it too, but the process is a little convoluted and takes just as long. I usually use Nero to convert the stream to an MPEG2 file. It's a bigger file but takes less time.

I'm gonna use RipBot tomorrow. I'll let you know how long it takes on a single core 3.8G. Got a reference file with the time it took?

No I have one with a 320x240 screen, I thought the ipod profile was for the new ipod touches.

Thank you I appreciate it. Could we get a "ipod classic" profile author?

I set Ripbot off yesterday evening processing a 50 minute m2ts file to blu-ray. The original was 7GB and I wanted it to fit on a standard dvdr.

The first pass had both cores of my c2d 2.33gzh at 100% and it took about 4 hours. Since it started phase 2 x264.exe has only been using 50% of each core and Ripbot no longer predicts how long the process will take.

Is there any way I can tell if it is still doing something or stuck in some endless loop? The process has taken 20 hours so far!

I've tried that. It just gives me the path to the original file and the path to its temp file which is worryingly only 1kb.

sorry guys, i have a little question

i use ripbot for convert my bluray in .m2ts, because megui don't do this, but with ripbot is possibile choose more audio file? or is possibile choose only 1 file .ac3 or .dts ? because i want make a m2ts movie with more languages.

thanks for the support.

Hmm, I guess subtitles are a bit of a no-go. :(

I tried adding a .sup file ("Build in"), but RipBot264 trips on it, and says (in preview):

TextSub: "Can't open R:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\0006.sup"

Riight. And then RipBot264 just says it's "Done" with the job altogether. Riight.

Anyone know of a solution?

I'd do what I do: don't bother with audio in RipBot264. Just let it convert video; then use tsMuxeR to remux an audio stream (or more) in later.
