First, here’s what I want to do, I want to copy certain music videos off my DVDs. I want to make a Video juke box on my PC. I am only copying some videos, the ones I like, not the entire DVD.
When I rip the DVD using CloneDVD2 I get an Audio_TS folder and a Video_TS folder. The Audio_ts folder is always empty, hmmm. I have been opening the VOB files in the Video_TS folder one at a time, then using VideoReDo to cut out the videos I want. Then I save them in the VOB format so as preserve the DD and or DTS (I think). At least the sound seems to be OK. I’ll experiment further.
What I have left to fiqure out is how to keep subtitles. It seems once I chop up a VOB file then the corresponding IFO file is no longer “good”. In the one instnace that I tried, the video was jittery, as if the associated IFO file was causing it problems (?).
I really don’t care too much about subtitles for music videos, but if someone knows how to cut up VOB files and keep subtitles I’d sure like to know.
Also is VideoReDo the way to go as far as chopping up the VOBs?
