What does it exactly mean? Are you adjusting the angle/ILVU pointers inside the VOB?

Also when and how would you use this feature? After keeping one angle?

This is an experimental feature, which you can use if you're only keeping 1 angle. Note that FixVTS will not modify the IFOs accordingly (i.e., you'll have to reset the angle flags, make sure all the cells for the other angles are no longer referenced etc). As I said, that's experimental.
@jsoto, no, I don't update the angle pointers in the vob! I reset them, that's somewhat easier ! But that's all you need to do to keep 1 angle (and the ifo cleanup).

FixVTS Version Beta 1.22
Here's the latest beta for FixVTS.
  • Fixed a problem that occurred when the last cell(s) in a vob was/were removed and prevented Shrink from opening the DVD.

Sorry about the multiple releases....

Thanks Jean - little error (not bug) - it still says 1.17 when you hover the mouse over it.

Regards

while you are at it,
in the config file there is no line for reset all angle/ILVUs pointers.
as it was before.

That's right and it's by design. You really don't want the app to remember that!!! Imagine that, you process another DVD and suddenly FixVTS removes the angle pointers from under you!? BAAAAD.
At the moment, this option is only available through the command line. If there's enough demand for it, I can work a bit more on it (make it so FixVTS does what's necessary in the IFOs), and offer it on the UI...

Jean, since the purpose of FixVTS is to fix discs that won't load in DVDShrink, I thought I'd report this incidence:

I'm helping a friend repairing some of his old backups, which won't play properly on his new standalone. The problem is that he has done a lot of butchering when he initially backed up the discs. For example, in a particular backup the main movie is located in VTS_01. In order to save space to avoid shrinking, he has simply deleted VTS_02_0.VOB, VTS_02_1.VOB and VTS_03_0.VOB, VTS_03_1.VOB and so on, in Windows Explorer...!!

This results (of course) in a fatal error in DVDShrink ("Missing vobs"). Nothing is changed when I run it through FixVTS... I can fix it in PgcEdit, by blanking out the menu and title domains of the missing VTS, one by one, which will put in empty 10 KBs VOB files and update the IFOs - but maybe you could also take such deleted/missing VOBs into account in FixVTS? At least by issuing a warning to the user...?

mmm, well, it's true that fixvts will not fix the IFOs if it does not find a vob to process... I guess I could add that to the "Full DVD" option... I'll think about it...

I added the feature that CoNS suggested. In "FullDVD" mode, if FixVTS encounters an empty vob, but an existing IFO, it will update the IFO to clear up the C_ADT and VOBU_ADMAT tables. Note that this just makes it possible to run in through shrink, but it does not mean the DVD is valid! Especially if some PGCs reference the missing vob!
Anyway... Find the exe here:

Beta 1.23

oh no problem, it works fine! Don't worry about it. I simply didn't do a new official release because for most people the new feature isn't going to mean much (and besides, "I'm lazy", to quote our friend jsoto!).

Thx. Ok, I see... If FixVTS should really fix the DVD and make it valid in case of a missing VOB, it should insert an empty 10KB VOB file, right?

IMO, as you made it, this feature is dangerous. For example if a VOB file is missing because the user has not copied it, it's easy to fix the problem by copying the missing file. IMO, you should display a warning, and ask the user if the tables should be removed or kept. (But maybe it's the way it works right now? I haven't tested it.)

No, there's no warning... Maybe you're right, maybe it's not a useful/desirable feature...

Yep, I've also though on it in VobBlanker, but I prefered to keep it as it is (because I'm lazy, for sure... ). VobBlanker complains about the missing VOB, but you always can select all the PGCs and blank it, so VobBlanker will produce a VOB, plenty of blank cells, but matching with the IFOs.
