SmartRipper

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the author of SmartRipper? I have some requests for changes in the product.

Here's what I do:

Rip a DVD into separate streams, creating two files, .m2v and .ac3. I load these two files into SpruceUp, create menus, etc., and then use PrimoDVD to burn to DVD-R.

My problem is with a movie that is longer than about 135 mins. If I choose to split the output files into 4GB sections, the ac3 file is not split as well. This would be a very usefull feature for me at least. When the m2v file is split, the sc3 should be at the same time to create four files.

Any help?

Thanks,
Dean

Hi-If I understand the question correctly, can't you decrypt by chapters? That is-decrypt half the chapters along with the AC3 stream first, and then go back and rip the rest of the chapters.

Why would you want to split the file into 4gb sections?
An operating system limitation perhaps? Maybe you should consider moving over to Windows 2000 / XP.

I personally cannot see any reason why someone would want to merge vob files when they are limited to 4 gb anyway. Surely that defeats the purpose of the merge in the first place?

As for contacting tron, i seem to rememeber Doom9 saying is email is 100% private. You'd be better off looking for him on one of the german dvd forums. I believe he hangs out on one of them but I cant rememeber the exact url - sorry.

DVD -> DVD-R

Hey guys! Here is what I do:

SmartRipper -> rip the complete movie to the HD.

DVD2AVI -> load the VOB's, save as project file.

TEMPenc -> encode to mpg2 file.

SpruceUp -> author with menus and such, make DVD image file.

PrimoDVD -> burn to disk.

This works like a charm!

Thanks,
Dean

ugh...

okay, in that case, I'll put out my questions here and see what I get back...

Questions about SmartRipper 2.41:

1) Does anyone know if there are undocumented codes to specify a specific "Program Chain" and/or "Angle" when using the commandline?

2) When running SmartRipper 2.41, if you set it to separate by chapter and select the audio stream and set it to demux, you get a single ac3 file for the whole movie anyway. I've gotten around this, by manually selecting the chapters and demuxing the AC3 for each one. Is there anyway to automate the AC3 demux for each chapter as it does for the vob's?

1) Did you check the txt file that comes with it?

2) Dont think its possible.

BTW, both of these CAN be done with DVD Decrypter.

Yes, that's why I said "undocumented", because they are not options listed in the text file.

too bad.


I had suspected that "no" would be the answer to both... That was why I was hoping Tron was still around and working on the prog.

I'm still fairly new to this, and found the interface for SmartRipper to be much more intuitive, but now that I'm getting to understand the process a little better, I may take another look at DVD Decrypter.

more intuitive?! They are virtually the same!


As for the undocumented features...sorry, I just assumed they would be in the text file and perhaps it wasnt included with the version you downloaded. I'd have thought they were the most basic of cli commands needed - oh well!
