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!
The option “Play selected title automatically” has no function. It starts to play whether this options is ticked or not.
The volumen control of the preview mode does work correctly. If I change the volumen it just mutes the sound. Only setting the slider to maximum brings back the sound.
The progress bar does not work correctly in “Split” Mode. It goes to ~50 and stucks there.
See my screenshot.
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.
Fixed in this release:
The new preview mode works fine with the latest ffdshow!
Now it does not jump to the beginning of the selected title after changing the audio streamâ€¦
with best regards
