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.

what!?

is not important the audio in ripbot!?

if you don't insert in this case, two audio, the video is calculated by one audio, and when i remux .h264 and audio, i must remux only 1 audio with video, and not two, because the video have the dimension for 1 audio.

you understand..... ?

it's very very very very important the audio in ripbot, i don't convert it, i select copy stream, but is more useful to have the possibility to choose more audio...

No, I don't. :) Your original m2ts will still contain all the audio streams that came with it. So, just let RipBot264 convert the video, open the new stream with tsMuxeR, then add the original m2ts file, and select therein just the audio streams you want to keep, and remux the lot.

You understand...... ? :)

Great program Atak, a small request though would it be possible to add a 2.0 CT AAC LC 320 kbps option ?

Can it be done manually, there is a profiles folder but it seems for video only ?

Atak could you create a iPod classic (320 x 240) profile for the program? Also it would be helpful to make the text a bit more readable. Thanks for the cool program.

4th June 2008, 17:33
Cool thanks for the tip, as to why well maybe it's just my ears (or perception) but I hear a noticeable difference between 128k and 256/320 when converting movies & the Xbox 360 only supports AAC LC 2.0 so as size isn't an issue I'd like to to use 256 or 320 option.

Anyway thanks for that suggestion I will use that instead.

Added: 4GB splitting for Blu-Ray (Reason: FAT32 on flashdrives)

oh yes! I won't have to do it myself :)

Replaced: FGO with Psy RDO (Always enabled)
Updated: x264 r869 , MediaInfo v0.7.7.1

cool, I won't have to do it myself :)

next version dual audio ? :)

and substitle in .idx format ? (it will be hardsub, or converted using external tools.. don't know how to do it yet)

First off, great work on the GUI. It's nearly ready to replace AutoMKV as far as my needs go. Second, another mirror would be very helpful as Mediafire is being particularly slow lately. Here are some general thoughts:

Would it be possible to add AQ strength options to the Codec Settings or as a profile option in the future? This would allow a per profile AQ setting to better match source type (live action vs animated for example) since the AQ strength required varies depending on the type of source. Also, it would be great if a custom avisynth source could be specified in the profile. This would allow power users to easily (without manually editing the avisynth script) select DirectShowSource for avi and other formats thereby enabling ffdshow preprocessing on the source. This would offer a more generic filtering option than the MSU filtering already present in ripbot. I know these ideas are somewhat against your "Simple and Easy" ethos, but they would be a great help to us power users. Just some food for though.

Keep up the great work,
ebucha

Well, since you're apparently in an answering mood today, tell me, when encoding "The Matrix" (HD DVD), I keep seeing errors like these:

[x264] Warning: VBV underflow (-129124 bits)

So, are these Video Buffer Verifier serious? I mean, should I abort the encoding and change a setting?

Please, advise.

yes, two audio streams is perfect, if you can insert this in future release about ripbot, will be fantastic.

and for the bluray disc output, if i can advise you, would be able to perfect subtitles in. sub. idx -. srt (already present) and. sup

think is possible?

thanks anyway for the support and for your beautiful work.

@Atak_Snajpera

is it possible to desactivate the validation about the format when selecting bluray output ? Sometime I want to bluray outpur to burn it.. but most of the time it's only for watching.. and I want to keep the ac3 or dts audio track, so I can't choose the mp4 ouput.

@Atak,

Is there any possibility of ripbot264 getting the ability to encode by title from a DVD? I would like to be able to select which titles on a DVD I want encoded and also apply the same encode settings to each of the titles. This feature would be very helpful in encoding episodic DVDs. Or is this already a possibility with the current version?

Only application doing this is AutoGK, AutoMKV and Nero I think. It's only required for few DVDs so most authors don't bother to add such a feature.

You can prepare things manually with DVD Decrypter in IFO mode ripping titles. It's easy to rip doing something like surfing while ripping because DVD Decrypter shows a message box when finished with a title, you have to select and start another title then.

If you have a full rip on HD and titles don't have dedicated VOBs you can use PGCDemux or what I do is reauthor using DVD Shrink. This allows also to save titles in a single VOB file which most batch applications require. DVD Decrypter also allows to save as single VOB file, I'm not sure about PGCDemux.

Nice update - couldn't see anywhere for an option to split the bluray files into fat32 size ?

Edit : Now that is clever it does it automatically. Please share the method - I have been looking for a way to split .m2ts files like this and yet still have them played automatically in order via the Bluray structure. How can I do this with existing .m2ts files without re-encoding again?

Hmm, I'm getting less optimistic. These constant errors keep slowing down encoding significantly (< 2fps), and the new AVC file is already twice the size of the original VC-1 stream.

OK, first off - absolutely great app! Now, for the questions (which were hopefully not previously answered - meaning I missed 'em):

How about a setting for video/audio of just 'copy' to be used with the resizing/adding borders to get PS3 compliant videos - or set the profile for PS3 and just 'copy' without having to re-encode? Basically, just adding the borders to get to the proper PS3 size?

Did the set output size go away on this latest version (7)?

Oh, yeah: Great App!!!

just poppin by to say that i love the app.

only have one problem with it... and i'm sure it's easily fixed...

is there any way that I can have the app autosize the video based on my preferred width?

say if I want all my vids to have the width of 720 or 704, i would like the app to be able to tell me what I should correctly be resizing my height to and still preserving the aspect ratio...

thanks!

because I find MeGUI to be glitchy. i'm still pretty new at this so i might not be doing things right, but it seems like I can only rip 4 out of 5 DVDs successfully, and then I turn to another program... i would love to just do it all in one program and not waste a lot of time...

i'm sure it wouldn't take any time at all to add this funtionality, and it can be ignored by casual users...

ok, this doesnt make any sense...

so i encoded a 2 hour movie with a bitrate of 1100 and got a filesize of 787 MB, which is completely wrong and is not 1100 kbps... so i upped the bitrate and reencoded with the same settings @ 1300 kbps and I ended up with a filesize of 787 MB again!

so what is going on? why is my bitrate being ignored?

my first pass is:

Custom matrices are useless since we have AQ and PsyRDO (enabled by default)
For god sake why do you use --vbv-bufsize 768 --vbv-maxrate 5000?????

i would like the app to be able to tell me what I should correctly be resizing my height to and still preserving the aspect ratio...
hmmmmm..... This should be easy.......

The HD-DVD.mkv file I have when the error message pops up is only 1KB.
I was very lazy and I assumed that video stream is always on first track. In your example on first are chapters :) It's very easy to fix.

As you can see bitrate in DTS is very inaccurate. This is main reason why my calculating formula is not working well. With those data I should be able to fix this for good :)

well, without --vbv-bufsize 768 --vbv-maxrate 5000 playback on the Xbox running XBMC stutters like crazy. with it, it plays just fine. not sure why this setting does what it does, but it seems to be the best setting after 50 or so test encodes with various different settings.

also, i am just trying to acheive a specific video bitrate, (i'm not worried about overall bitrate / just vid bitrate)... how can I get RipBot264 to properly use the bitrate i set? it ignores it everytime and outputs the same exact filesize every time regardless of bitrate... you see, setting the proper bitrate is key to achieving stutterless playback of h.264 on XBMC -- the higher the res, the lower my bitrate, and the lower the res, the higher I can go...

Hello Masters!!! :)

Just for an comment. I search over 5 weeks, tested all the video programs and utility for backuping my blu-ray titles on a dvd9 or dvd5 format. I have downloaded the update, 1.9.6, use an decryptor + tsmuxer to remux in m2ts just 1 language and 1 video, ripbot reconvert sucessfully my video for Blu.Ray ouput with specific size.

Everything work perfectly. Thanks for a great main programs like that. It's long, but quality is AWESOME. Im happy. Now i will can transfer an AVCHD camera output in the way.

Continous your great work. IF any question, message me. Thanks!

Sorry for mistakes in english :)

Atak_Snajpera, could you answer my previous question about the bitrate? I'm going crazy over here because none of my encodes follow the bitrate I set -- it seems like they are fixed and never change... the only way I can achieve closer to the bitrate in mind is trying to find the CRF value that comes close to what I'm looking for... It would be nice just to know or not if others are having this problem, because then I would know its something I'm doing wrong...

Thanks a lot... great app by the way -- I like it more than MeGUI, Handbrake, and StaxRip because of its ease of use and it just works (in most areas!) There are a couple things that could be added like the ability to input custom x264 settings that arent available in the GUI. this isn't as big of a deal tho as not being able to turn off the turbo 1st pass! i always like 2 FULL passes on my material. can you make this a setting in the INI or maybe even the GUI?

Need help! I'm trying to re-encode VC1 bluray video to AVC or MPEG2. Using RipBot264, I've been able to do this sucessfully. However, the final product has a bitrate far below the original. I've tried changing most of the setting within RipBot and ffdshow without sucess. I start out with up to 25Mbps on the original and end up with 3 - 5 Mbps, just about DVD quality. I'm trying to solve the problem of streaming VC1 encoded video to the PS3. I have another solution, but it's also not without issues. Any thoughts?

Well, the resolution is 1920x1080P and I see no place to specify bitrate. Only a place to specify "MAX BITRATE" which I have set to 100000 (previously 10000). But the transcoding never reached the default MAX BITRATE.

You may also edit the originals but doing so is not recommended or supported unless you know what you are doing...

The GUI has Bit-Rate and CQ mode... CQ is the best way to get good quality, bit-rate is manly used if you want a certain size (ie 700MBCD~4500MBDVD)... (Lower CQ = Better Quality)

I never said Read The Entire Thread I simply said to read up on some of the stuff b4 you go about encoding so the attitude is worthless and miss aimed...

The creator of this GUI Project Works very hard in his free time to make it as simple as he can so dolts like you can easily encode Video to mp4 mkv and BluRay...

(The presets are there to save you time and effort and are set to give you the best quality)

Bit-rate doesn't mean quality... I could encode a video from 30Mbps to a Variable using CQ between 15 to 6Mbps and never miss anything in quality

Atac is a great guy for not charging upwards of 50USD for this app plus one on one help to figure out the problems you are having... (so do us all a favor and loose the attitude b4 you inquire again)

I came here asking for the same thing: high-quality VC-1 -> AVC transcoding. Atak kindly advised me to use ESA + RDO Level 2. So I did. And now I use CQ and CRF = 18 (which I read is near lossless). Then I copied the HD-Bluray profile into a custom MAX profile with these settings, and now everything is super-shiny. :)

I'm quite a newbie too, so I'm sure Atak will occassionally have a hard time dealing with the frustrations of us noobs. :) But I hope he keeps remembering that his program exists precisely because not everyone is a video expert. :) I, for one, like to think of myself as so many of my friends: knowledgeable to work DVD Rebuilder and such reasonably sensibly, but not much beyond that. Stepping into the HD world, I assure you, can be a bit daunting at first. :)

Sorry for posting so many times, but just wanted to report back that after 2 more encodes everything seems to be working! However, I think I could squeeze a little more quality out of my files if I were able to turn off the Turbo 1st Pass you are forcing us to use. I know I asked this before, but I never got a reply... is there any way I can manually turn this off? I know I shouldn't be editing the commandline generated by the app, but I really need this turned off!

Oh, and can anyone tell me what the "--nf" setting does. I know MeGUI adds it to the commandline when "Deblocking" is turned off. It seems that if you turn off Deblocking in Handbrake, it really doesn't turn off Deblocking, but it just keeps it at a setting of 0,0... So the only way to get around this is forcing --nf in the options box. Now, I would love to know how RipBot264 is handling this option, because it doesn't seem like it is turning off Deblocking at all, but also just keeping it at 0,0. So is there any way I can force using the --nf setting? -- Of course, without editing the commandline generated by the app!

It would be awesome to be able to do these two things, because to encode for the Xbox you need just a little more control in order to get a "skipless" file. Files skip like crazy when Deblocking is set at 0,0. You can tell by what MediaInfo tells you about the file... files that play fine have "deblock=0:0:0", files that don't work have "deblock=1:0:0". It would even be nice to be able to know what MediaInfo has to say about files encoded with RipBot264, but it doesn't generate the same results...

And actually, that brings me to my last question... how come I can see my "Encoding Settings" of all my other videos encoded with other applications, but I cannot see the Encoding Settings of anything generated by RipBot? I really would like this option so I could "debug" my encodes and find out what settings are making the file skip, and what settings are not.

I know all of this may be asking too much, but I just really love this app and how easy it is to use! I was able to teach my girlfriend in like ten minutes, and I have never been able to fully get her to understand MeGUI. So I'm not asking you to overcomplicate your app, and I'm not telling you what to put in your app, but as a user, I think just adding this little extra functionality I have mentioned would add SO MUCH to an already awesome app! If its too much, that's cool -- just point me in the right direction that works as good as this one! I mean, seriously... I'm a newb and I can't get MeGUI to load anything but DVD's without crashing, but this app literally takes anything I throw at it like a champ!

If you are trying to reach a specific bitrate without going over or under, then I think a 2-Pass is a must. And I might be wrong, but I personally feel like videos encoded without a Turbo 1st Pass look a lot better. I'm not worried about the encode time, I'm worried about the overall integrity of my videos in the future...

You won't notice difference in quality.

Ok, cool... I removed every codec from my computer, reinstalled the Haali Media Splitter and the newest FFDShow (updated today) and everything worked out! It must have been an issue with the Haali Media Splitter that came with the codec pack... Thanks a lot for all the input!
Believe me you are not first person who has problems with shity codec packs. Unfortunately some users use them like crazy. K-Lite shit + CCCP + Vista codec shit = total havok in os

Just because DirectShowSource can't render a file doesn't mean there is a bug in a codec pack, there could be many other reasons.

You should open m2ts directly not via avisynth script.



This is the error I get when I select the source in ripbot264's add job window where it is trying to gather information.

You won't notice difference in quality.

Yes, you are right... you won't *notice* a difference, but there is a difference in quality. Check out Handbrake's manual... "If taking twice as long doesn't sound like a good idea to you, look towards the Turbo checkbox. By enabling this, when encoding 2-pass with x264, you can cut down the time of the first pass by 50%-75%. There will be a drop in quality, but so slight as to be imperceptible to the eye."

Either way, after a couple of tests with Handbrake I think I see less artifacting with two full passes... On a 50 inch HDTV I see every imperfection of the video, so quality is the number one factor for me... so please do not alienate your users by ignoring a very important feature of encoding!

9th June 2008, 21:36
im just a fellow user, but personally, if this much tweaking is needed, maybe megui would be a better choice? you can max out the settings using the insane profile and get every teeny increase possible.

JPSiemer
9th June 2008, 22:32
Haha, well the tweaking MeGUI's insane profile would give me a video that I cannot use on the Xbox. I can encode an Xbox-compatible file with MeGUI just fine, but that isn't the point. The point is that MeGUI cannot handle all the files I throw at it -- RipBot264 can. It's the only program that I have successfully gotten to work with any file I import. If MeGUI was updated so that it didn't crash when I imported these files then I wouldn't be asking.

Anyways, its not like these two features are changing the program in any way. In fact, the "--nf" setting should be enabled if you don't want deblocking. And in my experience, deblocking is a huge reason why slower processors skip the playback of H.264 files. Also, files encoded with deblocking look worse when the decoder is set to disable deblocking, while files encoded with no deblocking do not lose quality when deblocking is disabled. (Check out this thread for an example: http://xbmc.org/forum/showpost.php?p=120936&postcount=28)

Bottom line is, it's almost a must-have feature when encoding specifically for consoles that don't neccessary have the processing power that a computer might have...

And well, the turbo pass thing... that is just a user preference -- not neccessarily the end of the world if I don't have it, but I definitely am noticing a difference between two encodes upscaled from SD to 720P on my TV -- one with turbo 1st pass and one without. The one without wins everytime, no matter what settings...

So please consider the facts before dismissing that these features aren't "neccessary"...

MeGUI and probably HandBrake use --subme 1 but after reading a little bit I decided to use --subme 2 and belive me this makes big difference.

I'm a bit of a newbie in this encoding stuff
is there a manual some where that explain some of the options in ripbot stuff like CQ crf and what it actually doing

I just encoding a video using 2pass but I like to know what other options actually do and have a bit of play and try tinker with it a little and see if there are difference in quality/size etc..

:thanks:

JPSiemer
10th June 2008, 03:21
Atak, I think you are missing the point about the Turbo 1st Pass. This is a major feature of the POWERFUL x264 encoders, and RipBot264 is a POWERFUL x264 encoder, so why not have it as a feature? It's not like you would make it a default setting, you just would give the user the option to choose. And as a user, I like both my passes to have a motion estimation of 7 -- even if that means a 4 hour encode. Anyways, I don't have screenshots at the moment because I delete all my bad test encodes, but I will make one for you...

As for the -6 , -6 deblocking... this wouldn't work because it would produce a file with deblock=1:-6:-6. The Xbox is only compatible with deblock=0:0:0. The only way around this is turning off deblocking with the "--nf" setting, which I can't do because editing the commandline generated by the app screws up the whole encode!

binh25, this isn't a guide for RipBot264, but seeing as RipBot has the same options and features you can use this as a great reference for encoding video using RipBot...

http://gabextreme.googlepages.com/DeathTheSheep_x264_VfW_guide.html

It's a guide by DeathTheSheep and he does an awesome job at breaking down all the options and the terms for newbs. Specifically, there are two huge sections in there about CQ CRF and Multipass encoding...

To quote a couple things...

"I recommend multipass mode for all of encodes you wish to reach a certain filesize. That's right, if you require your final filesize to be exactly 170.00MB, for instance, you're going to have to do a 2- or 3-pass encode. 1-pass mode is strictly for those who are severely short of time or do not expect to attain high-quality output. 2 passes tends to be sufficient for most people's needs, producing high-quality files with accurate filesizes. However, single-pass mode is sometimes used to produce constant quality output."

"For people interested in doing 3 passes for optimal quality, consider the use of the “fast” first pass. For 2-pass encodes, I suggest use of the standard first pass mode. The quality of encodes using fast over standard first pass does not decrease to any catastrophic degree by most standards, but I nevertheless recommend using the standard mode for 2-pass encodes to ensure optimal quality for the largest variety of videos and encoding situations." -- A "standard" 2-Pass encode is one that does not throttle the first pass!

"Inherent in the AVC format is an exceptionally useful feature which reduces blocking and other encoding artifacts that have so plagued many of the predecessors of AVC. It is extremely useful in AVC encoding, and due to the fact that AVC is built around this filter and you may experience excessive amounts of blocking and video artifacts (bad stuff), this deblocker should generally not be disabled for normal use. However, due to the fact that it takes up immense amounts of decoding time, you may consider disabling it to achieve the fastest possible decoding speed (Xbox, handheld, etc) if the decoder doesn't support disabling it on the fly.

Useful info - I've done about 30 blurays but still consider myself a newbie. All these guides are very helpful. I often wonder on the need for multiple passes. I know some people would frown on this - but if I am pushed for time I use ripbot to just do the first of a 2 pass encode and burn this to an AVCHD dvd. On a 42 inch HD tv it looks pretty good and far better than a standard DVD. Some people may not mind tying up their PC for 20 hours. But to me there are few movies worth this time. For example running the first pass only (on a 2 pass setting) on a 2hr movie at 1080p locking filesize to a DVD9 produces a better result than 2 passes at 720p locking filesize to a DVD5. On my system the 1 pass 1080 encode takes about 5 hours - whereas the full 2 pass 720 encode takes about 10 hours.
You have to be selective on the type of movie when doing this though. If there are lots of dark scenes it can sometimes be blocky - light ,colourful and Cartoon/CGI movies turn out ok . Either way the result is still way better than watching an ordinary DVD.
I've looked at the CQ 1 pass method but this does take considerably longer and also is no good if you want to fit the movie on a DVD5/9.
Any feedback on the pros and cons of this method much appreciated.

JPSiemer
10th June 2008, 18:24
For me, a full 2-pass of a 720P movie and converting it down to standard definition 720x480 only takes less than 4 hours and looks way better than DVD rips on popular torrent sites. In fact, it looks just as good as the DVD. With the faster 1st pass, it takes about an hour and a half but has noticeable blocking in the gradients and in darker scenes.

I do not have experience creating AVCHD DVD's, but I would imagine it would take my system about double the time to do the same jobs -- which works for me! I work for a video production studio and we are constantly digitizing, encoding, editing, etc... so I know that working with video can take a lot of time, but it is best to do it right the first time so you don't have to redo it for the client in the future.

I'm using the latest version 1.98.
I've been using this tool for a while and I'm wondering about a thing:
I usually set the 2 pass encoding and look the file size increasing; for example I have a movie now that will be 7844 Mbytes with a bitrate of 6450kbps at a resolution of 1920x1080. If I set the resize to 1280x720 at the same bitrate of 6450kbps I should have a file smaller than before, am I right? So why the gui always tells me it's the same file size? Even thought I set the resolution at 380x180 the result never change. How can I have a realistic value of the file size whenever I change the resolution?
Do I have to edit some avs file or something else?

Hope you can help.

Thanks a lot.

Bye.

You are completely wrong! 6450kbps=806 KB/s
Multiply that by duration. Let' say 7200 seconds (120min) and you always get the same File Size. It doesn't matter if you choose lower or higher resolution. Bit-rate decides about everything!

I can't undestand actually. I have a bd to rip, I first encode it at 1920x1080 and then at 1280x720 but I want the same good quality for both: I should use the same bitrate for both? How could the high res movie be as good as the lower if I get the same file size? I think that a higher res movie needs more bitrate and then will be larger. Where am I mistaking?

is this normal?

also my MKV play back constantly use above 60% CPU with peak 80-100% to play back video.. Other HD MKV I got doesn't use any where near that sort of CPU. around 20% - 40%

You have to use 2-pass because crf does care about buffer size or maximum bitrate. At the moment only 2-pass work well with max bitrate.

Yes the processor does have the specs marked on the box but that's only 1 in a chain of 100 Billion reasons why it would be going slow...

Who are "WE" anyhow... The point being made is if You want the video encoded it will take time on a slower system period.

You speak of logic though your initial question has none.:confused: besides that my answer is as logical as it gets ask anyone...

No one can tell you how long its going to take or why... It is truly a variable that goes up and down dependently...

At your level of questioning everything comes into play...

The System:
Operating system, Software, fragmentation of the disks, disk seek speed, ram latency, ram frequency, Processor cash load, size of cash, math processor frequency, ram controller frequency, Processor frequency, how many cores, hard drive cache size, how much ram is used, Hard drive cashing, How much ram you have,

The video:
Size, fps, darc matter, Mbps/kbps, type, progressive or interlaced, sound quality, output size, output fps, output mode (ie CQ crf or Bitrate), ect... the list goes on...

Everything comes into play...

Seriously how do you solve for the Numeral variable X in the equation X+Z=P. X could be anything from -9^ to 9^...

Impossible to tell...:rolleyes:

There is no definitive answer to your illogical question. So to that I will say this. You will forever remain in limbo until you realize that there is no answer to a variable with out and end in site...

Now please try to understand we all want it to work just as fast as possible... Sometimes it does and sometimes not...

The best I can tell you is kill all un-nessarry processes in the background clear *your system tray of all icons related to software you have installed* (Except antivirus). Uninstall all codec packs and only install the packages in the installer Provided in my signature. defrag your hard drive clean out any un-nessasery files. And from there you might see a change...

Atak-

Thank you very much for an excellent program.

I'm having problems with certain BD disc output streams from TSmuxer. If I open m2ts stream (from TSmuxer) on some movies, I get a very low count of frames and a low duration. (H:M:S)

Say the movie is 2 hours, and I get a duration of 9-15 minutes and a low number of frames.

Do you have any idea what is wrong?

Thanks!

Atak, can you PLEASE add the ability to remove deblocking with the --nf setting?!?! I'm experiencing major stutter with my encodes when playing back on the Xbox. If you don't feel like making it a GUI setting, at least let me add the setting manually to the profile INI's.

Thanks!

Hi.
I have an Intel Core 2 Duo E6700.
I used it to encode a movie whose duration is 2h 34m.
I set the 2 pass encode and the HD.Bluray.Consoles profile.
Resolution 1920x1080.

Is it normal that it took almost 24 hours to complete the process?

The first pass was more quick but the second one was very longer.

I'm not an expert in encoding and x.264 is a new planet for me. Would you be so kind to tell me, or explain or link me to a page where I can understand which parameters slow down the process, improve quality and so on and so forth?

I usually watch my movie by my ps3 so I would like to know wich parameters are to be set to encode a ps3 compatible movie and why.

Hope not to have asked too much... :)

Thanks a lot.

Nice app but I'd like to check if it is possible now (or in the near future) to convert the Audio track from DD+ / DTS to (L)PCM. I want to preserve the quality and have a format that can be played my most devices (I don't care about the extra disk space).
Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply.
I'll give that a shot tonight.

Would it be possible to allow Ripbot to accecpt .264 files? (Since this is the video output of TsMuxer in demux mode)

Thanks again for this great software and support!

... duration is 2h 34m... HD.Bluray.Consoles profile... took almost 24 hours to complete the process

Should be normal!
On my Quad at 3.2GHz it took around 5 hours to encode around 90mins:
24h/(2h34m/90m)/(3.2GHz/2.66GHz)/(4cores/2cores)=5h50m

The first pass was more quick but the second one was very longer.

1st pass is "only" an analyzing pass, in the 2nd the "real" encoding is done, so it needs more time.

... which parameters slow down the process, improve quality ...

RDO and multihex take most time, but give better results, and they are used in RipBot to give a decent quality of encodes.

... wich parameters are to be set to encode a ps3 compatible movie and why.

Why? Ask Sony! (It's a feature) :) They decided to set restrictions in playback to Level4.1, no b-pyramid, ref-frames, bframes and so on.
Look into profile in RipBot.
You can lower settings like RDO and multihex to increase speed, or set RDO2, exhausive to increase quality and encoding time.
All other settings you can lower, but shouldn't increase because of compatiblity.

My advice: leave settings as is, start encode in the evening, watch tv, go to bed, go to work, play with your girlfriend and then look if encode is finished.
2nd advice: overclock or buy better cpu

I still get wrong number of frames in video section. Audio is correct.

If I mux the .264 video portion with TsMuxer, and output as .m2ts, then try to import video only with ripbot, I get this Script error:There is no function named "ugin"(C:\Temp\Ripbot264temp\getinfo.avs,line 1)

First pass is done at lowest possible settings (nearly), profile is for 2nd pass

I only asked for some more information.
My "why" belongs to "which parameters to be compatible and why?".
Parameters are resticted by AVC Level. PS3 uses Level 4.1 and has some other restrictions. We tested them by trial and error encodes. We don't know, why PS3 has them.
Best advise was to look into profile(s) of RipBot or maybe MeGUI. In AVC forum was a very long thread how to encode PS3 movies.

I only wanted some explainations about the encoding process. I know that I could buy more powerfull cpu. I'm not used to overclock instead. :)

x264 is a very powerfull codec, but a very complex too. Compared to xvid and mpeg2 it is slow.
Look at the x264 forum (mpeg4 avc).
There are several threads about settings and benefits.

Atak_Snajpera made this tool to get high quality encodes for some platforms.
If you want to experiment with x264 settings, it would be better to use MeGUI. :)

Hi Atak,

Any chance you're going to add Anamorphic control to Ripbot264 at some point?

I know I can set it to resize to 640x360 to get a 16:9 aspect from my 720x480 anamorphic source, but then I'm losing quite a bit of vertical resolution and on my 55" screen that's not a good thing. I could just adjust the aspect ratio later in the player, but that's a pain that would be unnecessary if Ripbot could set the flags properly for 720x480 anamorphic material.

I've been using staxrip instead, since it supports anamorphic, but I prefer the simplicity of the Ripbot interface.

Solution 2: Remux your_problematic.m2ts in eac3to to mkv

I haven't encoded yet, but that seemed to do the trick! H:M:S duration is now equal for video/audio.

Why does this happen on some movies and not others? Is TsMuxer producing corrupt .m2ts files? AutoMKV & Staxrip also had problems with this particular file.

Thanks again for your help!

hi, back with some test results for dts files from v1.9.8, I hope things didn't change with the later versions.

1:34:14 720 + 1.066.609.488 DTS = 4.735.914.172
2:01:34 720 + 1.375.992.716 DTS = 4.748.594.844
2:01:34 720 + 687.996.358 768DTS = 4.695.412.380
1:53:18 720 + 1,282,241,564 DTS = 4,743,831,552
1:53:18 1080 + 1,282,241,564 DTS = 8,584,415,232
1:27:37 720 + 991,658,464 DTS = 4,733,134,848
1:27:37 1080 + 991,658,464 DTS = 8,580,200,448
1:26:52 720 + 983,650,437 DTS = 4,733,054,976
1:26:52 1080 + 983,650,437 DTS = 8,581,066,752
1:36:34 720 + 1,092,854,016 DTS = 4,737,312,768

1:45:48 720 + 598,731,966 768DTS = 4,695,705,600
1:45:48 1080 + 598,731,966 768DTS = 8,536,418,304

720 = 4480 target
1080 = 8150 target
DTS = 1536 DTS

good news is 768 DTS is calculating nicely, bad news is 1536 DTS is roughly 30-40 MB oversized.

Also I've ran into an issue on windows server 2003. If it's not an administrator account ripbot264 doesn't detect avisynth and haali even though they are installed and are working. Could there possibly be a way to bypass that check through the .ini?

Another thing is would it be possible to add an entry to the ini where if ripbot264 is closed it doesnt automatically kill all x264 processes?

Thanks for the efforts so far.

Nobody wants to oversimplify the UI. We just are telling the author what features the users want! I don't see how anything that has been requested would complicate the UI in any way...

I, for one, cannot use RipBot anymore until there is an ability to turn off deblocking! :mad: CABAC and Deblocking are the two most CPU intensive features of the codec -- CABAC works fine on Xbox, but Deblocking stutters like crazy (even on -6,-6).

It makes me mad because I love this program and it would take Atak ten minutes to add this feature. I'm not sure why this isn't even on there anyways, because a lot of iPhone users are encoding without deblocking as well...

HI,

Could somebody help me with my trouble please in ripbot264.

I have a soft trouble while convert blu-ray movies to Blu-Ray AVCHD DVD9. I have a trouble with all mouvements, like the picture move with a little sacades. When somebody moves, like he move not natturally.

I would like to know if it's an setting to change or something like that. If i read the m2ts from the blu-ray before the conversion, everything is good.

Could somebody can help me with that please?

Sorry for my english and thanks for your work with ripbot264. Super software!

Another question, did they have a way with ripbot264 to add a second language AC3 channel? In the software they read 2, but when conversion done, only one language.

I'm pretty sure they know about it, but they probably aren't going to fix it because it might be an error with Groove rather than an error with MeGUI.

Is that why I get this error (when loading video into Ripbot) on some of my PCs but not others?

Script error:There is no function named "ugin"(C:\Temp\Ripbot264temp\getinfo.avs,line 1)

No, sorry.

Do you have any idea why I sometimes get this error even if I have muxed my .m2ts to .mkv with eac3to? The problem PC has a XP pro fresh install on it with Ripbot installed with Ajax_Undone's installer.

Thanks!

Doing the King Kong HD DVD.

It demuxed everything into .MKV and .EAC3's files, after demuxing, RIPBOT264 reported "NO AUDIO". I had to manually launch EAC3TO.EXE to converted the DD+ track into AC3 and load the AC3 track into RIPBOT264.

Everything is great afterwards.

Great Job :thanks:

PS: hmm.... I've noticed that the DGIndex option is gone from the ripbot264.ini file, is it intentional?

It is already fixed. E-AC3 is automatically converted to flac

Thank you very much for sorting out my Planet Earth HD DVD conversions – they now work perfectly.

I am now trying to convert The Bourne Supremacy HD DVD but I am only being given one choice of audio track, the Director's commentary. Would you mind having a look at it please?

Take and cut the evo files to a tolerable size (ie 2-3 MB) then archive the entire structure ripped from the disk by anydvd/dvdfab... Upload the archive to www.mediafire.com...

So you don't care the contents of the EVO files but just the directory structures then.

I will get them zip up to you.

PS: what's the best way to cut large files into smaller chunks? Can I just create a new empty file with notepad using the same file name? Is the first few MB's of the EVO's important to you?

i got a quick question for you

Movie Four Brothers about 15gb MPEG2 file straight form BD with AC3 audio

while playing back the re-encoded H264 copy from RipBot 1.9.10 there is slight playback issue

Movie seems to be skipping few frames from time to time. Do you have any idea what could be causing this?

Don't post the logs as attachments use the word. Code inside [] at the beginning paste the log text after that then put /Code inside [] at the end of the text.

That way we can see the log files with out waiting for them to be approved...

Hi guys !

I just updated my old RipBot 1.8.10 to 1.9.10, and whatever the video file I choose, I get the following error message into a MPC windows :
"Script error: there is no function named "ugin" (C:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 1)"

The line in question is : "ugin("C:\RipBot264v1.9.10\Tools\AviSynth plugins\FFmpegSource\FFmpegSource.dll")"

I've the lastest versions of ffdshow and avisynth, and no idea where this error could come from !
Any idea ?

just poppin by to say that i love the app.

only have one problem with it... and i'm sure it's easily fixed...

is there any way that I can have the app autosize the video based on my preferred width?

say if I want all my vids to have the width of 720 or 704, i would like the app to be able to tell me what I should correctly be resizing my height to and still preserving the aspect ratio...

thanks!

Just wondering if this is going to be added :)

Don't ask me why or how this fixes the problem, but try installing Autogk installer.
