Hello. Question, maybe be a bit basic but here goes.
Had a film my friend sent me from the England. I had to convert it from PAL to NTSC to view it. Problem is, the DVD was a copy made from a video tape, and included all the tape hiss, commercials, and other stuff.
This isn't a problem, as I am not worried about all that. The issue is, due to a bit of bad tape the DVD file has a spot where the tape went all crazy due to the age of the video it was taken from. This means, everytime I run a program to convert it from NTSC to PAL (I have used a few), the scene after the bad spot that was recorded on the tape ends up about half a second off with the audio track.
Now, after multiple attempts to use other software to convert, I thought of editing the VOB files directly. I have the original MPEGs, but due to their size and this machine, editing the MPEGs directly are impossible. I authored a new DVD, split the VOBs into smaller chunks, and got the one I needed in a small 400 meg file which I then used Womble MPEG edit to directly edit the VOB file.
IT worked brilliant. Only problem is now, when I copied the new VOB file back to the VIDEO_TS directory and try to view the DVD, it dies right at the scene where the edited VOB file is. I can view the VOB file fine in various browsers, but everytime I try to view the full DVD in the VIDEO_TS folder, it dies at the point the edited VOB file begins.
So I'm thinking after browsing through all the posts and forums here that I need to re-do the IFO files, and I have IFO edit, but was wondering how I could quickly and easily fix the IFO info, if that indeed is the issue.
Thanks in advance!
