Hi Atak,

You never reply me about my troubleshooting.

1.10.3 & 1.10.4 Troubleshooting when playing the AVCHD blu-ray conversion in ps3 and blu-ray players. Audio track, sounds goes on/off tested with 2 different blu-ray players, and 1 ps3.

Probably something wrong with the conversion?

Thanks.


i have try with 3 movies. 2 mkv and one from blu-ray ripp directly.
Now tested with 1.10.1 and size output not ok. total size 2GB no 4480.

First-time user here.
I opened a large video file in RipBot and now it displays something like "please wait... gathering informations..."

It would be nice if RipBot could display a progress bar while it's waiting there.

i apologize if this has already been covered...i'm converting 1080p .m2ts files to .bluray to make avchd discs. I am getting between 7-9 fps on the second pass. Is there a file i can manually edit (x264 encoder settings) to speed the encodes w/o loosing too much quality?

i'm using a q6600 @ 3ghz.

7-9 fps is very fast for 1080p. I have only 3-4 fps on Core 2 Duo 3Ghz :)
Do not change anything because quality will suffer. Only agressive changes will give you higher speeds but it also means lower quality!

It would be nice if RipBot could display a progress bar while it's waiting there.
Not possible!

Now tested with 1.10.1 and size output not ok. total size 2GB no 4480.
Do you really think I care for older versions??? You should always use the latest.
Check if you have the same problem with audio during preview in ripbot

Use google. 64bit version should speed up to up 10 %

Will it be possible to choose which audio stream will be used when handling with an .avi file ?
As far as I know, now the first audio stream is used.

7-9 fps is very fast for 1080p. I have only 3-4 fps on Core 2 Duo 3Ghz :)

I've a slightly slower Core 2 Duo (it's a 2.6GHz IIRC) and I get around 2...3 fps in Pass 2. Yes, it's pretty slow.

Does RipBot scale up with the number of cores? Will it be able to use more than 2 cores efficiently?

E.g., my motherboard supports (after a BIOS update) the Phenom quad cores. If I upgrade to a quad at the same clock speed, will the fps go up significantly? (I'm hoping for a double speed, but I'll take any improvement at this point)

Hi Atak

Do you really think I care for older versions??? You should always use the latest.
Check if you have the same problem with audio during preview in ripbot

First, i have try with 1.10.4, with the latest ffdshow version, results, it's what i told you. I have try all my other version to be sure of what could be the trouble and have try until 1.10.1 to be sure that it is not the new version the trouble.

I always install the latest !! but i have just try something to try to understanding if it's ffdshow trouble, or the x264 version, so i try other older version.

My trouble is that:

I think it would be easier if you remuxed all avis to mkv. avi was not designed for multi audio streams.

womble2
16th July 2008, 21:31
Sure, that's not really a problem, because of just muxing it's lamost just copying the file.

So what I then would love to see is a button to play the demuxed Audio Files, even if it would just open my standard mp3 player.
Because now I have to check manually which is the stream (file) I want.

And have I already said that it would be a big save of time for me, if the resize option could be stored in the profile file ?
So that every file I add with a specifiec profile will be resized without hanging through the Properties ?



Thanks a lot again Atak ;)




Btw.:
does anybody know a good way (batch) to remux a lot ov avi files, even in different folders, into mkv ? Till now, I use the MKVtoolnix, but I don't think, they have an batch option, better it HAS one, but a very easy toll, that walks through a folder and subfolder just remuxing every file would be nice.

Ok, forget that, I wrote a little script using the mkvtoolnix command line ;)

Maybe I'm blind, but I don't see any way to include soft subtitles in a Blu-Ray to Blu-Ray rip.

I rip the BD with AnyDVD HD.
I open the main movie file in RipBot. It says "analysing" so I wait.
When it's done, I can select chapters, video and audio, but no subtitles.
I click Ok and then it's remuxing to mkv.
When it's done, there's a button labeled subtitles, but it doesn't seem to do anything useful: it just opens a new window, but there are no subtitles there to choose.

I'm confused because in tsMuxer I can select and include a subtitle track if I wish. But of course tsMuxer cannot shrink the video track.
RipBot has a subtitle button too, but it's not working.

What am I doing wrong?

I posted a question a few days ago about if avchd played on a samsung bdp1400 could have DTS audio. Well I found the answer. According to Wikipedia article on the avchd spec, it only supports audio DD up to 640kbps or LPCM but not DTS. This explains why my samsung will play all the ripbot avchd with dd but not dts. When I burn the ripbot avchd to a bd-re it plays even with dts so it must think its a bd, not avchd. If anyone has a panasonic or sony stand alone bd player (not ps3) have you been able to play a ripbot BD that had DTS and burned to a DVD9 or 5 succesfully?

Hi,

Yes AVCHD with DTS @ 1.5Mbps plays back no problem on a DVD+R DL via a Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu-Ray standalone deck.

Also the AVCHD spec does allow for DTS on AVCHD. The spec is upto 1.5mbps bit rate after compression and 1 - 7.1 channels.

The spec does not actually mention the DTS trademark, but it does say bit rate after compression 1.5mbps and upto 7.1 channels i.e. the DTS core sound track spec of DTS-HD sound track. Spec link here:

If I'm not mistaken, RipBot uses tsMuxer to author the BD structure, right?
Well, if that's the case, there's a problem. The disks authored with tsMuxer will play in a loop on the PS3. Insert disk, it starts playing, it reaches the end, it goes back to the beginning, plays the whole disk again, and so on. :angry:

Anybody knows how to fix this?

The installer has been updated to include an updater built originally by morphinapg for ASXgui Encoder.
He generously offered me the source after I asked and I modified it for use with RipBot264...

So big thanx to morphinapg...

Anyhow if you use it now it will just download The current build of RipBot264 so its kinda useless untill next release...

Currently Building a ffdshow and haali updater to include by 2.0 release. The 2.0 Installer will be the last one released until 3.0 comes around. So I want it to be self sustaining...

Doesn’t setting the audio profile to “x.x. COPY STREAM” not work for you as for me this prevents reencoding. I use this function to keep the DD core track that Ripbot extracted from DD-HD audio track as if I let it reencode, the sound levels are much lower. I also use it when I have a DTS audio track.

Shrunk a big 1080p VC-1 thing to DVD-9. When there's a big image change (cut from one angle to another, or from one scene to another) the image freezes for several seconds. Audio keeps playing normally. This is on a PS3.

Several possible causes:
- DVD+R DL is being read too slowly by the PS3
- bitrate after shrinking is too small for this video stream
- bug in x264

Any ideas?

I'll try to upload the .m2ts file to the PS3 directly (bypassing the DVD+R DL media) and we'll see what happens.

P.S.: I shrunk another one, same procedure, same DVD+R DL and it seems to be fine. Kind of eliminates the DVD from the list of suspects, but in this case the bitrate is a tiny bit smaller (7GB final size instead of 8). But the master in this case looks a bit more smooth.

Hello Atak,

thanks for your great work for the community!

I have a quick question: is there an option in the .ini files to set the x264 --keyint <int> and --min-keyint <int> parameters? Alternatively: do you have a HDDVD ini-file (similar to the Bluray one) which presets those parameters correctly? I'd like to create HDDVD compliant .264 raw files, and a couple of x264 parameters from the Bluray profile that I use at the moment have to be changed (e.g GOP <=36, and probably others).

Thanks.

Well, I don't know how picky HDDVD players are with out-of-spec streams. What I've encountered is that some authoring tools don't accept out of spec GOP values, hence my question. I try to author a HDDVD from a backup of my purchased BD, as I see it as a waste of ressources to dump a perfectly functioning HD player.

It would be nice if RipBot could display a progress bar while it's waiting there. Not possible!o0 any special reason why not? the audio normalizer and encoder gives percentages. you have the total # of frames and what frame x264 is working on, and a percentage for that. I know mkvmerge gives some sort of output because its own GUI has a progress bar. am I missing anything? Im not seeing any reason not to create a progress bar, or even a double progress bar (current process / total progress). I know its not a limitation of Delphi. Ive seen many Delphi programs with progress bars, ones which use CLI backends as well (Razorlame for one).

My friends, I'm sorry to interject, but I need some clarity. I wish to convert an MKV movie into a standard Bluray format, not MP4, mt2s, etc. Now, the resolution of said MKV is 1920 x 800, certainly not one Bluray players like very much.

I tried Ripbot264 on the MKV and I believe I configured all the settings as they should be. I wanted the final resolution to be Full HD, which in this case I chose the highest setting.

12 hours later, I got the final product. I burned the files properly using the correct settings utilizing ImgBurn. But alas, when I played the movie on PowerDVD I had audio but a black picture. 12 hours of encoding down the drain. I blame myself.

Now, I'm well aware that a very similar situation arose before in this forum, but perhaps someone can enlighten me...Perhaps someone with a higher understanding can point me in the right direction.

*sigh* after you learn everything there is to know about DVD encoding, along comes a new format and one has to begin from scratch...

^ does the m2ts file play OK? or is it also just a black screen?

ps. did u resize to full HD?

^^ Yeah you need to add blackborders in the Avisynth script.

E.g. If it's 1920x800, it needs to be 1920x1080. So 1080-800/2=140.

So put addborders(0,140,0,140) at the very bottom of the script.

... and make a test-encode of a 10min-segment first, before you waste another day ;)

Btw. I found a solution for my HDDVD authoring problem. Unfortunately cannot use RipBot264 due to the missing x264 target for HDDVD. But my current workflow is as follows:

1. .m2ts from ripped BD -> eac3to.exe
(creates a .264 elementary file, and the sound track as either .ac3 or .dts)
2. Re-Encode .264 with MeGUI and the Standalone_HD-DVD configuration
(creates a bitrate/GOP HDDVD compatible .264 file)
3. the resulting file needs the pulldown-flag to be set -> h264info.exe ("set 2:3 pulldown")
(creates a compliant .264 file)
4. author a standard content HDDVD using the .264 file from step 4 and the audio file from step 1

It would have been nice to have this automated with RipBot264, but the HDDVD muxer is still missing, therefor the workflow cannot be implemented completely with freeware tools.

Thank you for the expeditious response. Yes, the .mt2s file plays as it should in PowerDVD. Furthermore, to answer your post script, I did choose resize to full HD in the appropriate settings in the Picture Properties submenu.

^^ Yeah you need to add blackborders in the Avisynth script.

E.g. If it's 1920x800, it needs to be 1920x1080. So 1080-800/2=140.

So put addborders(0,140,0,140) at the very bottom of the script.

I noticed that the Avisynth script on the right hand side automatically added the borders for me i.e. addborders(0,140,0,140). However, this was not located at the very bottom of the script, but somewhere in the middle. It was located under: #Resize
video=Spline36Resize(video,1920,800).Sharpen(0.2).AddBorders(0,140,0,140)

... and make a test-encode of a 10min-segment first, before you waste another day ;)

I followed your advice and I am currently encoding a 10 minute segment of the MKV as suggested.

Thank you again, all of you.

Hello! I have a problem with a file m2ts:
http://demo21.ovh.com/d7cca9cd9a5c8d2f422e608197b71acaP/

Ripboat announces a problem: "is not a valid floating point value
there were 14 files m2ts
I joined the files m2ts with TSmuxer

With others videos, Ripboat functions correctly, but if I use Tsmuxer, Ripboat refuses to convert
What is the solution???

Atak_Snajpera
30th July 2008, 13:48
Do not use TSMuxer :) Import file directly from Blu-ray structure. Only in this case files will be joined together.

pitch.fr
30th July 2008, 15:18
is what I must work starting from the disc bluray or of the file copied from the hard drive?

Which file I must open in Ripboat: Stream,mpls or m2ts?

How does Ripboat manage to find the order of the sequences of a disc bluray?

Atak_Snajpera
30th July 2008, 16:25
The simplest way to rip movies is:
1) install AnyDVD HD
2) select any .m2ts file from Blu-Ray disc

How does Ripboat manage to find the order of the sequences of a disc bluray?
eac3to does whole black work :)

Ajax_Undone
30th July 2008, 20:48
Hey Atak so you could avoid the issue of incorrect burning. If you could had either an ISO creation for re encoded BD structure or a burning engine to just burn the compilation to a disk rather then just structure out... Or even all three as options.

I would first off like to thank Atak_Snajpera for a superior job making the Ripbot tool. I can't tell you how many tools I have tried and tossed. All of them ruined the quality of the movie, even at their highest quality settings. This includes testing MainConcepts/Elecard solutions which seemed to attenuate some of the mid-tones and highlights in the movie.

Apart from being convenient, he has also worked out all the best settings and conveniently brought together the best of the best tools in the shell to create what I consider the only tool that can transcode a blu-ray from a staggering 30Gigs to a mere 5-7 gigs with nearly no perceptible loss in quality video. I leave the audio stream alone, so there is zero loss in audio.

My goal is not playing blu-ray on ps3 but simply reducing the data storage requirements and playing on MC or similar DirectShow only playback app. Also by reducing the file down to a fraction of it's original size. You don't need a powerhouse computer anymore for playback.

Very happy with this tool for this role. Except that some movies are out of sync with the audio. And it is not linear, so that a simple audio shift wont fix it. I have tried to find an answer by scouring these forums. But nothing with h264/ac3 streams. Some have said this is due to the 24.976 verses 24 fps. Do I need to re-encode with 24 fps? RibBot is indicating "copy stream" so I assume this means it hasn't altered the timing of audio.

Or do I need to run a tool outside of RipBot to re-sync? and if so, Is there a tool that can read a m2ts file and allow me to stretch audio?
Seems the audio is late by a half second during the start of the movie. And is correct at the end of the movie. Or am I doomed to demux and run it though some ac3 audio editor and remux. If so which one can do a stretch rather than a time shift?

This is a great program Atak. I'm finally able to encode stuff that for some reason didn't work properly using MeGUI, and this is much easier to use. I'm using it to convert mkvs, to 1280x720 blu-ray format and putting them on DVD-Rs to play on my PS3.

I did have two questions that I searched for but couldn't find any good information.

1) I'm encoding 23.976 (or whatever it is) film sources, and I'd like the output to stay 24fps. I have my PS3 setup to output 24fps and my LCD TV accepts 24fps so when watching a real blu-ray I see a display 1080p24. However the blu-rays I create don't appear to be sending 24fps from the PS3 as my TV shows it's receiving just regular 720p. Does the PS3 have some kind of limitation of when it can send 24fps content, or is the conversion converting to 30fps, or am I doing something else wrong which is preventing this from showing up properly?

2) I've got subtitles in these MKVs that were .ass format. RipBot correctly demuxes them and I can add them. However when the movie is played back, whenever the subs should be in Italics it looks like this: {\I1}this should be italicized{\I0} and whenever there should be a line break it just shows as "\N" and everything stays on one line. I checked the .ass format and that's how the subs are actually formatted. I converted those .ass to .srt which replaced the {\I1} crap with standard <I></I> symbols, but they still show up in the actual subtitles and nothing is italicized. Is there a way to get the formatting to show up, or is that just a limitation of this method so far?

24fps means also 23.976 fps . Try again but this time encode at 1080p instead of 720p

{\I1} codes will be automatically removed in next version (Tsmuxer supports only plain text) . I'm planing to remove \N code as well but I would need you to send me few examples (.ass files)

Mordred
1st August 2008, 02:22
Yeah, I'll try encoding at 1080 and see if the 1080p24 shows up on my TV. I guess it's possible there's no 720p24 output format, although that seems odd to me.

I'm attaching the .ass file that was showing up improperly. Stripping the {\I1}s and replacing the \N's with linebreaks would be awesome. These subs also use #s around song lyrics (which I think is kind of odd) but you'd need some kind of rule to strip the #s from the beginning and end of lines, but make sure that a # used in the middle of the line wasn't stripped I guess... although I doubt you'd see # in a subtitle normally anyway.

Apologies for the delayed response ( Only a moment ago, I returned home from a small trip during the week).

Yes, I did burn with UDF revision 2.5. Incidentally, I succesfully created a Blu-Ray ISO of the MKV, but now I have A/V sync issue with the Blu-Ray movie. The video is slowly drifting away from the audio. Towards the end of the film, the audio is approximately lagging behind one second. I am currently browsing the forum for an appropriate corrective measure.

Concerning my A/V Sync issue, I found out that back in April of this year, there was a member that went by the name of m0nkie, and he (or she) had a very similar A/V sync issue to my own. Atak's response to m0nkie's problem was:

@m0nkie
Use AssumeFPS -> 23.976 and everything will be ok.

It's not that it seemed like a vague response, it's just that I would like to know the purpose of taking this particular action. Does anyone have a response?

Great! But how to include the subtitles? RipBot does not allow to select the subtitle stream and it's not clear to me how to actually get the subtitle from the .m2ts from the BD (which software tools, what are the steps, etc).

P.S.: By the way, after I select the streams, when it says "please wait... remuxing blu-ray to mkv...", can you please add a Cancel button on that window? Right now I have to kill the RipBot program altogether to make it stop remuxing if I make a mistake.

P.P.S.: Also, would be nice to give the user a choice where to put the temporary mkv, instead of burying that choice in the configs (it's easy to forget about it). After selecting the streams, a window should pop-up asking "where to create temporary MKV?" or something like that, with the initial value deduced from the setting in the .ini file, but allowing the user to change it before the mkv starts being created. This would be very useful for people who have 2 hard-drives and always run this kind of big processing tasks like a ping-pong from one drive to the other (it's very fast when source and destination are different drives).

Good morning!

As recommended, I have been running stress test now 2 times: 5 hours in a row and 12 hours in a row. Looks like the hardware works fine.

I am happy to giva any information necessary to get RipBot264 running. If you are interested, let me know where to beginn so we can find out why my PC freezes or reboots after running RipBot for some time.

My guess: One of the tools ued is the reason. Because during several tries, I do get separate video and audio files, but the whole process never ran through.

Could be disc errors. It happened to me before causing reboots and crashes when encodeing movies. If using xp or vista preform a disc check on all drives tick automatically fix file system errors and scan for an attempt recovery of bad sectors. reboot your machine and let it run it may take a while

dm1105, I think "BluBoy" had the same problem you describe. Did you try that suggestion you mention, and did it work?

I have read Blu-boy's only comment he ever had in this forum, and it seems that he and I have an identical problem. Unfortunately, it seems that nobody came to Blu-boy's aid. Maybe nobody knew what to say to him, or perhaps this is still an issue within the program...I don't know. But I do know that I did in fact use the "AssumeFPS -> 23.976" setting, but to no avail: the problem persists.

Interestingly enough, when I first acquired and played the MKV for the first time ever, which was a few days ago, it had the same problem the final Blu-ray movie has now: the video slowly drifted away from the audio. I corrected this by stretching the audio utilizing MKVmerge. It produced a copy of the MKV, only this time there was no A/V Sync issue. I discarded the original MKV and kept the new one, but oddly enough, the problem has returned.

I was able to point to the file within "ITunes" and say convert but would much rather use your proggy instead :)

I'm currently on a business trip, but I will return home tomorrow. When I do, I will take a different MKV, encode & convert it into a Blu-ray disc. Hopefully, the resultant disc won't have A/V Sync issues.

I'm pretty sure that the fact that the the Blu-ray disc I created using RipBot had A/V Sync issues was merely a fluke. I'm sure that I will get a more promising result using an MKV that had no problems with it to start with. Still, I appreciate all the suggestions that I have received so far. And if anyone has a suggestion as to correct my A/V Sync issue, I would be glad to hear it. After all, we're all here to learn.

The x264 options for Blu-Ray used by the current version of RipBot (1.10.4) are less than ideal. I made two movies so far, first one is played fine by the PS3, the second one the image freezes every few seconds, when there's a lot of motion or a scene change. There might be more to it than just that, but one difference is that the first movie looks softer and there's less motion.

The current (1.10.4) Blu-Ray x264 options in RipBot are similar to the Blu-Ray preset in Sharktooth's archive of MeGUI presets:

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=139765

But the problem is this: RipBot's "Blu-Ray" profile is in reality for AVCHD disks, not for Blu-Ray. That's because the disk size target is 8150 MB, which indicates an AVCHD disk (2-layer DVD) not Blu-Ray (BD disk, 25 GB).

There's no doubt about that: the PS3 recognizes the 2-layer DVD as an AVCHD disk, not as a BD.

The difference between BD and AVCHD is that the AVCHD standard only allows for smaller max bitrate and smaller buffer size. In creating AVCHD disks with a Blu-Ray encoding profile, RipBot violates the AVCHD standard.

And that's exactly what happens on my PS3. The freezing stuttering image is exactly what happens with a decoder overwhelmed by a too high bitrate or a too high buffer size. It looks at the physical support, it sees it's a DVD, so it expects an MPEG4 stream compatible with AVCHD. Instead, it gets a BD-compatible stream, at a higher max bitrate.

Here's the proof: I encoded the same movie with MeGUI, using Sharktooth's Standalone-AVC-HD preset. Then muxed and authored the disk with tsmuxer. This time it worked very well, no stuttering.

Here are the x264 options generated by the AVCHD preset (slightly edited for privacy):

x264.exe --pass 1 --bitrate 8045 --stats job1.stats --level 4.1 --keyint 24 --min-keyint 1 --bframes 3 --direct auto --subme 1 --partitions none --ipratio 1.1 --pbratio 1.1 --vbv-bufsize 14000 --vbv-maxrate 16500 --qcomp 0.5 --me dia --threads auto --thread-input --sar 1:1 --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim --output NUL job1.avs --mvrange 511 --aud --nal-hrd --sar 1:1

x264.exe --pass 2 --bitrate 8045 --stats job1.stats --level 4.1 --keyint 24 --min-keyint 1 --ref 3 --mixed-refs --bframes 3 --b-rdo --bime --weightb --direct auto --subme 6 --partitions p8x8,b8x8,i4x4,i8x8 --8x8dct --ipratio 1.1 --pbratio 1.1 --vbv-bufsize 14000 --vbv-maxrate 16500 --qcomp 0.5 --me umh --threads auto --thread-input --sar 1:1 --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim --output job1.264 job1.avs --mvrange 511 --aud --nal-hrd --sar 1:1

As you can see, it uses smaller values for bufsize and maxrate than RipBot. As a result, the video is played just fine by the PS3. The image quality is not worse than with the Blu-Ray profile. The encoding speed is about the same.

There are some other differences, e.g. MeGUI doesn't generate a video file in the first pass, it just sends the output to NUL, which is faster.

Conclusion: if the target is DVD (8150 MB or less), an AVCHD profile must be used, with the lower maxrate and all that stuff. Otherwise it may create a disk that cannot be played on some (all?) standalone players.

If the target would be true Blu-Ray (25 GB) then fine, use a bigger buffer and maxrate if you wish.

Interesting but I don't agree about using tsmuxer. I have made 50+ bluray rips with ripbot - all for ps3 use. Rips( dvd5 and dvd9 ) made soley using ripbot encoding and muxing all play perfectly without stuttering. If I use tsmuxer either before or after a ripbot encode the resulting AVCHD stutters and plays poorly. (DVD5 i use a bitrate 3500-6000 - DVD9 i use a bitrate 6500-9000 ).

Atak - could you include an option to cut the movie length in the next release - i.e. to remove credits and therefore allow more space for the main part of the movie? (Using tsmuxer on a ripbotted file causes playback problems).

The following question goes out to the knowledgeable:

Is there any way for RipBot to continue from where it left off with the encoding process after the computer shuts off during a power outage?

Such is my dilemma. I only had under two hours left in the encoding process using RipBot when suddenly the power goes out. It was only a matter of time when the uninterruptible power supply ran out of battery power to run my computer.

Thanks.

^ if u still have the temp files and finished 1st pass (assuming it was 2 pass) then just go to the temp folder and double click the 2nd pass batch file. once that's completed, you will need to click on mux batch file too.

Thank you for your helpful advice ~bT~, but I decided to start the project all over again before I was able to receive your response. However, I don't feel too bad because I meant to put subtitles into the movie the first time around, and now I have the chance to do so.

I now know what to do the next time this ever occurs. Thank you again.

Atak - first off, great program. I have been able to convert several Blu Rays into MKVs without a problem. I just recently ripped 30 Days Of Night (Blu Ray) to my HDD. I am now trying to use Ripbot to create an MKV, and I get the following error message during the demuxing:

"FFmpegSource: Couldn't open c:\temp\Ripbot264temp\job1\video.mkv (C:\temp\RipBot264temp\job1\getinfo.avs, line 2)"

Any idea what this error message is, as I mentioned I have been able to use Ripbot264 in the past without any problems. I am simply selecting the main m2ts file. For the Blu Ray Structure, the m2ts file shows up under playlist, Chapters: 16 Chapters; Video: h264/AVC 1080p24/1.001 (16:9) ; Audio: TrueHD/AC3, English, 5.1 Channels, 48khz.

I notice --nal-hrd is back in 1.10.5 is this because of a compatibility issue?

Personally I've tested most of the main stream players and it didn't make a difference with or without --nal-hrd during playback and seeking. I wouldn't be bringing it up except I've noticed it uses quite a few bits, thus lowering the available bits for the video in 2 pass mode or signifigantly raising the size in CRF (5-10% larger in the few clips I tested)

Also looks like you were able to test out P4x4, nice to see, I was only able to test on 2 players so far and there wasn't a problem.

Removing --aud also worked fine on the 2 players as long as picture timing info and SPS/PPS were checked in TSMuxer, without these 2 there was seeking issues. I don't notice any signifigant change by using --aud except a a few bits to the bitstream but insignifigant.

Remux your file in Tsmuxer. Then it will work. Unfortunetely current version of DGAVCDec (libavcodec) cannot proper decode that kind of interlaced stream. You will see blocks from time to time.

Why the hell does it always hang after encoding audio? It just sits there saying "Normalizing audio..." even after I have double checked that I have not selected it. And even if I have selected it. Anyone have a clue as to why this is happening and how to solve it? Oh, and btw, my Task Manager shows it's running BePipe for over an hour now and the total audio file is a little over 25 minutes, using a Core2Duo e6300.

Atak - thanks. So just to clarify, I should remux the file with TSMuxer so I get a 264/AVC video file and an AC3 audio file. I would then use Ripbot, feed the individual video and audio file in to create the MKV? Sorry if this is a question you have answered many times, I really haven't needed to use TsMuxer more then a couple of times as Ripbot has handled everything I have thrown at it so far.

I recently added subtitles to a Blu-Ray movie I created using RipBot. I selected two different subtitles: one English and the other Spanish (and in that order).

However, whenever I attempt to choose the English subtitles on the Blu-ray movie, nothing shows up. The Spanish subtitles are the only ones that can be displayed.

I decided to use MediaInfo to see if the English subtitles were even placed into the movie to begin with. They were. However, I found something odd in the information it gave me about the subtitles. Here is the info I gathered concerning the subtiltes:

I can't run RipBot, since MP4box crashes when I try to open the input file. It's an mp4, it's 3.6 Gb and Windows Media Player says it contains the following:
Video: MPEG4 Video (H264) 1136x640 [Video]
Audio: AAC 48000Hz stereo 1536Kbps [Audio]

What's wrong?
I've tried removing codec packs, still no go.
Are there size limits? Limits on filenames?

I start RipBot, try to load the file, MP4box crashes and RipBot says the audio is missing. I have no logs.

Oh, and how do I update all the tools used by RipBot?

Hi! I am trying to encode m2ts into H.264.
RipBot264v1.10.5
ffdshow_rev2063_20080804_clsid
Vista

Other required componets are installed.

An m2ts file is loaded ok.
Audio is AAC.

Finished, created .m2ts, not mp4.
I checked "save as mp4" in the menu.

The log is attached.

Any other components are missing ?

edit--------------
I forgot to change the default output directory. In Vista C: cannot be used.
I changed it to p:, now it is ok. mp4 is created.
But with no audio. Is AAC 2ch audio in m2ts not supported ?

Where did you get .m2ts with AAC audio? I have newer seen blu-ray/AVCHD video with AAC audio.

In Japan, HiVision(High Definition) SAT broadcast is m2ts and AAC 2ch or 5.1ch.

I read that it can be done with RipBot264. Many users did that. But not here.

This time .m2ts is converted to .ts with AAC audio using tsMuxeR. The resulting .ts is palyed ok with sound with VLC.
Then .ts is fed into RipBot264. The resulting mp4 does not have sound when played with VLC or SMPlayer.

Does the AAC has to be remuxed and converted to AC-3 or wav for RipBot264 to encode in H.264 ?

mpeg4.ts -> mpeg4_new.ts

Atak - Hello. I muxed the file to .ts using TSMuxer (I down converted the DTS audio stream to AC3 as i think that is what may have been causing the issue). WHen I then use the new .TS file with Ripbot, Ripbot tells me there is no audio source available, only video to convert. Do I have to convert the video using Ripbot, then use TSMuxer to get the AC3 stream, and use MKVMerge to then get the Audio stream with the Ripbot video file in MKV? Thanks

Nice work! I've made several successful backups to type 5 and 9 Blu-Ray, and now I'm working on converting HD DVD to BD. I had to drop in and give you credit where it's due. This is truly a great and successful effort on your part. I'm curious. I live in Florida where the weather is sometimes volatile. I had previously finished the remuxing stage which I minimize until bedtime, but a power outage that lasted for almost two hours wiped it out. Would it be possible to add a way to save the setup stage for later re-encoding in such cases? If not no big deal, it's still a great addition to the world video backup. HLG

For god sake! You were supposed to remux whole broken ts file without even touching audio! New TS file must have the same streams!

I was able to put AAC audio into mp4.
The original .m2ts with aac was converted to .ts with tsMuxeR.
.ts was remuxed to .mpv and .aac with tsMuxeR.
.ts and .aac were fed into RipBot264 and mp4 was created which has audio.

If the resolution is set to 1280, .mp4 is played smoothly with VLC and SMPlayer.
But if the resolution is set to 1980 ( the original is 1980) , VLC and SMPlayer cannot play it smoothly. Audio is ok.

This PC is dual core 2.4GHz with 3GB RAM. The .mp4 file is stored in eSATA drive. OS is Vista.

Looking at Performance Monitor, CPU load goes up to 80% at the peak.

Does this mean that this PC is incapable of playing 1980 mp4 smoothly ?
Or is there any workaroound ? Will other H.264 codec improve playing performance ?

Please respond to these questions.

Depends on screen resolution and the capability of your video card I'd think...

Here is your answer


Remux your file in Tsmuxer. Then it will work. Unfortunetely current version of DGAVCDec (libavcodec) cannot proper decode that kind of interlaced stream. You will see blocks from time to time.

Atak - Remuxed and now RipBot264 can open the file - but only the video field is populated in the Encoding settings. Do I select the same file (TS) for Audio or demux the Audio into AC3 and then add that file into the Audio field?

Thanks.

Thanks for your post.

The Graphic Card is NVIDIA 8600 GT with 256MB video RAM.

The desktop resolution is 1920x1200. Changing it to 1280x1024 does not improve.

Please recommend better graphics card, 8700 or 8800 ?

I have exactly that video card and an HP 22" LCD 1680x1050 and the screen quality are verry good.

What i can suggest you, check if your monitor has good (LCD with 5ms and less for sure, high quality 1680 new generation) and the last recommandation, Don't Use VLC player, video is not the same has "PowerDVD 8.0 Ultra". I have tested many software. Try to read with "Media Player Classic" was on the ripbot264/tools/mpc folders.

Seriously, you must have an very up to date pc! I have an Blu-ray player and two 8600GT in SLI and quality is verry nice!

Try with PowerDVD 8.0 !!! :o i have experience many softwares and PowerDVD 8.0 has an HARDWARE acceleration for nvidia cars are helpfull for video playback with HDCP compliant.

I have that card and the only one think i can comment is i don't think the videocard will make difference for video quality. Not about 8600GT and 8700GT... some little difference but don't sure it can be visible.

Personnally my setup are equalized. 4GB DDR2 800mhz at Dual Kit, 2x SATA2 raid configuration for speed support, and 8600GT pci-e. What i have seen, it could depend with which software he used and monitor lcd generation. 1680x1050 last year generation are more helpfull for playing HD contents, pixel are ultra fine and more details.

Thanks all who commented !

The LCD is Ben-Q HDCP compliant one. It plays 1920 HD .m2ts with PowerDVD 7.3 very smoothly.

.mp4 created by RipBot264 (1980 HD) has problem.

I installed Media Player Classic and FRAPS, now the .mp4 (1980 HD) is played very smoothly, 30fps max.

So 8600GT is not a problem and the 2.4GHz Dual Core is not a problem. The problem is in the VLC H.264 decoder. The LCD monitor is not a problem.

BTW PowerDVD 7.3 cannot play this .mp4. The original .m2ts is played ok.

Is the Media Player Classic the only player which uses ffdshow ?

No there is a plethora of players out there that use DirectShow & filters/codecs like FFDshow! VLC usually comes with all codecs pre-configured for paying the video's that it supports I do not know of its abilities because I've never gone as far as to use it for anything in Video encoding...

Any directshow media player can and if installed will likely use FFDshow to play the file.. FDD being the codec Directshow being the method of image transport...

it must be the renderer/codec used. use MPC-HC or KMPlayer that should do the job fine.

Atak: Thanks for a real gem of a utility, which has been a great timesaver for me.

I have run into a minor issue with encoding from NTSC DVDs which have several television episodes combined in a single VOB file. For example, Futurama Volume 1 Disc 1 (US) contains four episodes, all of which are stored in VTS_04_{0,1,2,3,4,5}.VOB as four separate program chains (PGCs). As near as I can tell, the most popular utility for spliting a VOB into separate PGCs is pgc.NET. (I have version 2.0.0.0 which appears to be the most recent version.) I can use pgc.NET to strip out the appropriate program chain, which it stores in a separate file, e.g., VTS_04_PGC_01_1.VOB in the case of episode 1. The VOB file created by pgc.NET contains just the single episode represented by the selected program chain.

The problem is this. Futurama is interlaced, and the episodes look like crap without de-interlacing. If in RipBot, I select the whole VOB file, I am able to select deinterlace and decimate via the video properties button. The downside is that all four episodes are joined together, and I cannot select just the one episode I want.

On the other hand, if I select the single-episode VOB file created by pgc.NET, the options to deinterlace and to decimate are disabled (greyed out) so that I cannot activate them. If I had to guess, it looks like pgc.NET may not be copying certain information into the single episode (or single program chain) file, so maybe RipBot does not recognize that the video is interlaced.

If anyone can help with the above issue, I would very much appreciate it.

rb264 is gr8 for hd stuff but i didn't find it easy for episodic dvd.

Or use Handbrake. For Futurama I believe you want to leave the deinterlacer settings alone and use the vfr setting.

Atak,

Just one quick question for you.

I am trying to make a BD9 of No Country for Old Men with the latest release v1.10.5.

I picked the english option for subtitles at the first pop-up screen.

Will these subtitles be automatically demuxed into the movie or do I have to do something else after picking the correct language from the first pop-up screen?

Thanks

IS there a way having the subtitles switchable on the PS3 by using Ripbot. I have tried and all i can achieve is that the subtitles are embedded with the movie.

At the moment subtitles will be only demuxed to temp folder. Use SUPread to convert .sup file to .srt

On the other hand, if I select the single-episode VOB file created by pgc.NET, the options to deinterlace and to decimate are disabled (greyed out) so that I cannot activate them.
Those options are disabled if source has already 23.976fps.(FILM)
BTW. Could you send me 50MB sample ? (untouched VTS_04_1.VOB ). It seams that pgc.NET correctly detected original fps but not RipBot :( (29.97fps instead of 23.976)

If you are ripping the video file at the same resolution as the original file then the resulting .m2ts will play the demuxed subtitles properly. For some reason Atak has chosen not to do this at the moment . But you can manually edit the tsmuxer.meta file in your ripbot264temp\job1 directory. Add this to the end of the file with a text editor (notepad):

S_HDMV/PGS, "F:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\xxxx.sup", fps=23.976

Where xxxx.sup is the name of your subtitle and F is the drive where the temp files are stored.

Note that if you are downsampling the movie from say 1920 to 720 the subtitles will appear garbled. The only way to add subtitles to a downsampled rip is by first converting to .srt ( which is a painstaking process). If a movie has lots of subtitles I keep the original resolution and remux as above.

Hi,

this is a realy great tool. didn't need more then 10 minutes to do my first encode.

now i have a problem with my apple tv. if i take a *.m2ts or a *.ts HD h.264 file and convert it with the apple tv setting the picture is juddering on the apple tv. even if i reduce resolution.

how can i solve this? is there a possibllity to reduce bandwith?

Regards :thanks:

If you are ripping the video file at the same resolution as the original file then the resulting .m2ts will play the demuxed subtitles properly. For some reason Atak has chosen not to do this at the moment . But you can manually edit the tsmuxer.meta file in your ripbot264temp\job1 directory. Add this to the end of the file with a text editor (notepad):

S_HDMV/PGS, "F:\Temp\RipBot264temp\job1\xxxx.sup", fps=23.976

Where xxxx.sup is the name of your subtitle and F is the drive where the temp files are stored.

Note that if you are downsampling the movie from say 1920 to 720 the subtitles will appear garbled. The only way to add subtitles to a downsampled rip is by first converting to .srt ( which is a painstaking process). If a movie has lots of subtitles I keep the original resolution and remux as above.

I am talking about an .MKV file using the 2 pass option (with lock size+ blu ray format) and not the actual ripping.

Okay tried to reduce the bandwith with a higher value of cq like 24. gave me a smaller file, but no viewable improvement.

I also tried 2pass with 4kbps. also no improvement there. can anyone help? who tried converting hdtv to apple tv?

For god sake! You were supposed to remux whole broken ts file without even touching audio! New TS file must have the same streams!

Atak - stupid on my part. I was able to remux without touching Audio, and after that Ripbot worked like a charm. As always, thanks for your help

I've been working on Rambo 2 and keep getting an audio sync issue. I've tried both the DTS HD MA track as well as the English AC3 5.1 track and both outputs have the same audio sync issue. I am currently trying to set the audio delay and was wondering if there is a systematic way to try and gauge the correct delay versus taking a random guess.

Thanks for the help. I do have project files if anyone needs to see them. Profile used is the one for atv.

Here is a quick question I thought I would ask if anyone has any insight. To create a 1080p MKV (4.1 Blu Ray Console setting in Ripbot), does the source file have to be a blu ray/hd-dvd 1080p, or can you take a standard DVD and upconvert it to 1080p (or some hi def equivalent)?

Is delay constant?

Upscaling is useless. It won't give you better quality (576p or 480p -> 1080p).

Why the hell does it always hang after encoding audio? It just sits there saying "Normalizing audio..." even after I have double checked that I have not selected it. And even if I have selected it. Anyone have a clue as to why this is happening and how to solve it? Oh, and btw, my Task Manager shows it's running BePipe for over an hour now and the total audio file is a little over 25 minutes, using a Core2Duo e6300. Shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes.

Sorry to bring this up again, but I still haven't found a solution. Could anyone help out?

Thanks for the reply. I fixed the problem with the audio back in my old post. If I am not mistaken it was a megui issue. I solved it. I was giving RipBot a try. But since I can't get past the audio issue, I guess I am going to have to give up. It only happens if I use a avs script as video source, even though I do manually select the ac3 file as audio source. The problem is that I need to use the avs as video source in order to burn the subs into the video.

I made a few Blu-ray movies into MKV files that I am viewing on the PC only using RipBot264. I use either VLC player or PowerDVD 8 for playback viewing. What I noticed is that when I try to skip a scene or move forward a little the movies freeze to the point where I have to close the players and restart the movie. I used Xvid4PSP for 2 of these movies and Ripbot264 for 3. Each one does the same thing when trying to skip through the movies. Is this normal or did I miss something during the encoding process? Other than that, they all play well if I just watch them through and sound is perfect as well as video. Thanks. Just curious.

Hi Atak

I've mastered using Ripbot264 for Blu-Rays but would appreciate your help using it for ripped HD DVD's. I always convert to MKV, using 2-Pass to fit a 8.5gb DVD, Copy audio Stream, either Full HD or HD depending on the size of the bitrate.

If I import a ripped EVO with a Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack into Ripbot264 and select Copy Stream for audio, will Ripbot convert the Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack to standard Dolby Digital 640kbps? I know I could use the Aften option but I don't want to compress the audio from an already compressed soundtrack which Dolby Digital Plus is.

Thanks

DD+ (eac3) is automatically converted to flac. So if you want ac3 do not select copy stream because you will get flac in your MKV.

Atak heres one for you. I know you said HD DVD is dead to you but I just stumbled across a disc that looks like it has an intro before the movie starts and the playlist shows the intro + the main movie. Problem is for audio it only shows 2 channel source which I presume is because of the intro.

I have uploaded the job file for you if you wish to take a look.

I recently installed Windows Server 2008 on a Vmware machine (because Windows Server 2008 supports more than 2 CPU's). I try to do my rendering on that machine now, to off-load my regular one. Okay, installed RipBot264, and tried my first VC-1 source. Getting an error (from Media Player Classic):

"Cannot play back the video stream: no suitable decompressor could be found."

I tried installing a Vista Codex pack, but to no avail. Same error. There's nothing in the RipBot264 log, either. Anyone know what I should add/do to make this error go away? Obviously, a codec issue of sorts, but obviously not clear which one.

Thanks.

Vista 64 supports multiple cpus (more then two) Server 2008 though great for virtualization (new feature by the way) and server tasks Sucks for video encoding...

The FFDshow filters have not been made to run in a virtualized environment hence
"Cannot play back the video stream: no suitable decompressor could be found." error.. Though it has been known to work...

Hi I tried that; when I play the movie the subtitles are displayed correctly but I cannot toggle them off or on."They seemed to be burned in"

When I press the triangle on the PS3 it says that there are no subtitle option.

I must be doing something wrong or picking the wrong option when I choose the subtitles.

The copy /b cmd worked great at combining the two evo files. When I told RB to open the file I could see 5.1 audio from the drop down list. However when it went to mux it to mkv I noticed this am it did not create the video file. Looking at the logs I saw some traces back to my original source directory. Since I had a pending job in queue I couldnt close the app to flush the memory so I will give that a try this evening and post back the results.

Thanks for the quick suggestion.

It would be great to have a 25gb BD-R preset, I guess it's about the 23gb mark. Although it can be added manually, I just need to know waht the exact file size should be. Blank Blu-Ray's are still too expensive to get a coaster cos your file size is too big!

Bug:

Selecting 2.0 CT AAC-LC @ 96kbps audio still produces multichannel audio.

Hi I tried that; when I play the movie the subtitles are displayed correctly but I cannot toggle them off or on."They seemed to be burned in"

When I press the triangle on the PS3 it says that there are no subtitle option.

I must be doing something wrong or picking the wrong option when I choose the subtitles.

Any thoughts Anyone ?

Hey ...

big thx tried them already:

1280x720-23_976fps.mp4 and 1280x720-25fps.mp4 are working. The other won't be played and itunes wants to convert them. But I just get a white video. Playback in itunes is working with all of them. Could you tell me the Settings u used please..

Regards

@Atak_Snajpera please post your settings...:thanks:

is it possible in any way to add more than one video (i want to create a trailer disc in blu structure) i cant find a way of adding more than one video
or if that isnt possible if i merge them all into one file is there a way of changing the chaptering to make each trailer a seperate chapter?
love the prog btw U GENIUS!!

i usually make an mkv file (use append in mmg.exe) with all the files and also create a chapter.txt file which solves my probs.

Is it possible to have all three?

BD5, BD9, and BD25.

A few of us have been asking, begging :), for this option but I would not hold your breath.

A BD9 looks perfect to me on my 67" DLP. DL-DVD's are a lot cheaper and l dont even need a Blu-ray burner!!!

Ummmm.....just manually enter your deisired size in MB. I think BD-25s are around 22500 MB.

BD5=4480 MB BD9=8150 MB (these already exist)

Not really that difficult.

SWEEEEET!

I did not ever try and manually enter a desired size before.

I thought that the presets were the only choices.

Thanks for the info :)

How would you enter the desired size? Only way I see doing it is figure out the bitrate for encoding to get the desired file size for the video either using a bitrate calculater or the old fashion way and enter that in the bitrate and dont lock a size

As the price of blank BD-R's start to fall (not soon enough I hasten to add!), we'd probably like to see Ripbot264 morph into a Blu-Ray version of DVD Shrink, i.e shrink the main movie and possibly keep the original menus onto a single layer BD-R.

Hopefully it won't be long beofre DVD-ROM's are thought of as the CD-R's of optical media! Aparently Pioneer have already developed a 500gb Blu-Ray disc!

Dude there is a complex plethora of things that need to be looked at b4 it will ever get to that point...


PS upon later versions use the updater in your start menu directory I will usually have the next updated version on the server any where from 1-12 hours... I have been redesigning the installer set because I was left with out any of my prior code by version 2.0 I will have a new installer that will be made for this project and others...

Well it's definately going it the right direction and I for one really appreciate the only piece software that makes HD authoring a bit easier. Cheers!

As a hi-fi enthusiast, I spent a fair bit of money on my surround amp, speakers and cabling. Whilst I'm happy to compress a 1080p video a bit, it would be nice if copy stream meant copy stream rather than converting HD audio to a lesser format. Do you think it would be possible in future versions of Ripbot264 to allow more audio choice, i.e have more than one audio track and keep HD audio unmolested? Again this all ties in to the lowering price of BD-R's and the desire to keep as much of the original Blu-Ray content as possible.

I have a question about converting video's for my iPod Classic.

I've converted 3 different music videos and they all have the same total bit rate of 1152kbps. Now, I've download 4 music video's from iTunes Music Store and they all have different total bit rates (1541kbps, 1553kbps, 1607kbps & 1640kbps). Is there anyway to make my converted videos have a variable bitrate like the videos from the iTunes Music Store?

And one more question. How would I go about editing the audio of a video? The first few seconds are static and I'd like to make them silent with Audacity. Would I just go to the temp folder after RipBot demuxes the audio stream and edit the .mp3? Audio Identifier says the mp3's bitrate is 128kbps encoded with Lame 3.97 so I'm assuming it'd be find to edit the mp3 and reencode it with Lame 3.97 and put it pack into the temp folder and proceed with the video conversion.

Does anyone know how I can convert a demuxed HD DVD Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack to 23.976fps?

I'll use Ripbot264 to convert the HD DVD video to Blu-Ray, but don't want the audio converted to FLAC. I assume if I demux the DD+ soundtrack from the HD DVD, change the FPS to Blu-Ray 23.976fps and then mux it back with the Ripbot converted HD DVD video I'll get a Blu-Ray with compliant DD+ soundtrack.

Thanks for your help.

2-pass and constant quality mode gives always variable bitrate! 1152kbps is avarage value not constant.

How would you enter the desired size?
Don't make me laugh. Use keyboard maybe.
