Iâ€™ve been playing around with DVDFab and Iâ€™m pretty impressed by its capabilities and features. Though Iâ€™ve encountered some problems which keep me from using it as my main backup tool. Iâ€™d like to share my experiences to help improving this great app!
DVDFabâ€™s output of â€œCustomize Splitâ€-Mode is not compatible with VLC 0.8.6h.
I backed up â€œCharmedâ€ Season 7 Disc 4 and tried to split it to two discs. On disc one episodes 1 and 2, on disc two episodes 3 and 4. I kept the menu and removed the unwanted stuff. See my settings in the screenshot below.
The output of DVD was set to â€œFolderâ€ and created two folders I called â€œCharmed S7D4.1â€ and â€œCharmed S7D4.2â€
VLC is able to open the DVD and jumps straight to the menu â€“ OK! But after I selected an episode (e.g. episode 1 or 2 on disc1) it just hangs! It â€œjumps aroundâ€ between two window modes â€“ see my screenshots below.
Though, Power DVD 8 Is able to play the files properly.
The new preview mode works fine after installing the latest ffdshow!
The only annoying thing is it always jumps to the beginning of the selected title after changing the audio streamâ€¦
Besides: ffdshow is OpenSource, isnâ€™t it? Why not integrating it by default? Iâ€™m not sure if every user wants to install the whole ffdshow, maybe it could cause problems on some setups. Maybe fengtao can â€œextractâ€ the necessary parts of it and integrate them into Fab.
