VOB Adding opening and ending themes to episodes?

I have a DVD im ripping thats set up like this


Opening Theme
Episode 1
Episode 2
Episode 3
Episode 4
Closing Theme


I want to make it so that all episodes have the opening and ending theme at the beginning and end of each episode. As of now its only the opening for episode 1 and closing for episode 4. I want them on all episodes.


I currently rip the DVD's chapters separately to get a VOB for each episode individually with DVDDecrypter, then I use Megui to file index the VOB with built in DGINDEX. I then use the .d2v file that file indexer created to write a script in AVISynth with MeGui and save it. Then I load the script .avs file into MeGui and encode the video and audio separately. Once done I use MKVMerge to mux the video and audio files I encoded into an MKV file.


I have ripped just the opening and just the ending into separate VOB files, I have also encoded them just as I would the episodes as well so I have both VOB and MKV for them. How can I put the opening at the beginning of the episode I encode and closing theme at the end of the episode I encode so their all 3 just one MKV file?



Also, I just thought of something. is there a way to edit the VOB so that I can split the opening theme and then paste it at the beginning of each episode and still keep it a VOB file? That way when I encode like I usually do it will be part of the VOB I work with?

IMO, it is more efficient to encode the intro, all episodes and the closing theme separately, then load the encoded intro in MkvMerge, and use its Append feature to append the episode and the closing theme. That way, you will have to encode the intro amd closing theme only once.

As I said above, with the Append button of MkvMerge.

Use VobMerge. But take in mind that you cannot simply replace the VOBs of the original DVD with the new ones.

I never noticed an Append button in MKVmerge and if I did I never knew what it was for. Thanks, Ill give that a shot and see how it works out.
