Anybody had any luck copying Bali movies?

Every time I try to back them up the aspect Ratio is wrong yet Nero Recode does the job.

What is wrong?

Maid
Do they look stretched or squashed?
What are you playing it with that produces the wrong aspect ratio?

Hello Signals,

That is a very good question they are neither but the movie is too wide for the screen. Things that should be in the middle are off to the side.

I have converted over 500 movies and play them with Jriver.

I have never had this problem before with normal DVD’s just my new Bali ones.

Cheers

Sorry to jump in to this so late in the discussion.

I’m c o n f u s e d!

When you say [B]just my new Bali ones[/B], are you referring to the Bob Hope/Bing Crosby Road films, or films produce for and/or by India film makers?

That explains it…

From the sounds of it, the movies were mastered in PAL format.

Because of PALs greater number of scan lines, when played back on an NTSC analog set, the left side starts where it should, and the rest of the picture looks like it extends some inches to the right of the screen (thus moving images which should be the centre of the of the screen off to the right), if it’ll play at all. Are you getting any sound?

If in you’re playing these on an analog TV, see if you can find any neighbours who have an analog to digital converter (and are willing to let you try it) - that may correct your problem.

If you’re playing these back on a digital, or ready for digital TV, then I’m afraid the only solution will be to have them converted from PAL to NTSC, as they may not be completely DVD compliant. (If they are compliant, they’ll play back fine on either a Digital TV or an analog with an inline digital converter.)

Hello I am converting these movies to avi and Nero recode does a good job.

It seems I am going to have to continue that way and forget DVDFAB as it does not seem to be a problem for anyone else.

Thanks for trying

Cheers


#13

Are you trying to play them on a TV or your PC?

Hello.

Quite true… DVDFab will not handle to format conversion for you. If Nero recode is working, by all means, continue using it.

Nero recode is a commercial release… to use it, the DVD you are converting must either:
1.) Have no copy protection on it
2.) Have had it removed by another program.

1.) In this day and age (and this is my provincialism speaking) I find that hard to believe.

2.) Much more believeable.

Does one of these apply to you? Just curious, as DVDFab will at least handle that part…

[quote=maid;2189004]Hello.

TV.

Cheers[/quote]Indonesia uses the PAL/B broadcast system, so unless your TV is built for that system the video will not play on your TV (but should play on your PC). For use with a US-type TV, you will need to make a PAL->NTSC conversion using software (Recode or ConvertXtoDVD) or something similar. You can also buy DVD players that will make the conversion for you as they play the DVDs. To help us help you, put one of the DVDs from Bali in your PC drive and open DVDFab. Click on the green checkmark in the upper right, which will display the Info screen. Using your mouse, highlight all of the text in the window and select Copy by right clicking. Paste it into a post so we can see some information about these DVDs.

If that info screen is from the original DVD it is a counterfeit version and may not be authored correctly. I am still not clear on whether you are trying to make a DVD backup or an AVI or other file type using DVD to Mobile. Bob Hope and Bing Crosby starred in a series of movies that are called “Road” pictures–one of them was “The Road to Bali”. Hence the confusion.
