DVDFab beta not working

vbimport

#1

I have been trying to convert Narnia from PAL to NTSC. I purchased on ebay not knowing about the diff. It was suggested that I use DVDFab to remove the security. I was using older copy of DVD-Decrypter.

I downloaded and installed the beta to test it out and I cannot get it to run. The splash screen displays for a split second then nothing… Any ideas?

On another note, there are many suggestions here about PAL->NTSC, I tried IFEdit, but did not have success. I am not a video guru by any means. IFOEdit seems to change the format in the IFO file, but if I use GSpot to check the format of the movie, when I drop a VOB file on it, it still says PAL. I am sure I just don’t understand how all of this works… Any suggestions are appreciated.

If you are going to play it on a PC it doesn’t really matter. To play on a NTSC (USA) TV, try ConvertXtoDVD from VSO Software. It made this conversion at one time and I think it still does. DVDFab does not. Changing the IFO file does not change the way the video is encoded. There may be other ways to do this that are better, I’ve only done it as an experiment with ConvertX.

Thanks. I downloaded the ConvertX program and gave it a try. It failed…
It claims no sound, but I can play the movie fine with VLC…
Here is the log file…

Well, it looks like it gave it a good try and was set up correctly according to the log. The problem may be that the video was encrypted if you were using the disc as a source (I don’t think ConvertX removes any copy protection). Try decrypting to a VIDEO_TS folder with DVDFab, then running the conversion on that. This is done by selecting the folder icon on the Target line in the upper part of the DVDFab screen.


#5

I think Signals is correct. Certainly you must use DVDFab, or whatever to rip to your hard drive. ConvertXtoDVD does not remove copy protection, nor will it work on a copy protected DVD.

I have processed a few PAL discs with no problem in conversion to NTSC. While not perfect, CX2DVD does it simply.


#6

Thanks to all. I purchased ConvertXtoDVD3. However, it seems like I have to re-author the disc. I am not interested in doing that. I did one movie by removing all but the main movie (titlesets) and it worked great. Now I want to do a movie for my kids (Shrek3) and wish to keep all of the extra stuff. It is not clear how to do this and keep the new disc same as original .


#7

You cannot make the disc the same. You will lose all the menus, that is for sure. And I do not think you can easily select two audio streams, so directors comments should be forgotten about. To keep extra’s like deleted scenes you are going to have to create a menu yourself and title each thing properly.

Painful yes as there is a certain learning curve … but if you do the movie all by itself, no problem.


#8

ConvertXtoDVD is for changing the file format to make a compliant DVD to play on your standalone DVD Player. Like changing a .avi to MPEG2. You can add titles and other things, you can take your home made movies from a camera and make a DVD also. If you want to make a backup of Shrek3, buy the original disc and use Fab to make a full backup. Its as easy as that. You keep everything. Have a Happy Holiday.


#9

I already bought original, unfortunately from ebay and it is PAL. I need NTSC, hence the need for ConvertXtoDVD…

Thanks anyway.
Mike


#10

I now the easiest way to do this. Have a dvd player that is capable of playing both NTSC and PAL formats. Simple, easy and no hassles


#11

I think it would be easier just to spend 18.99 and buy an NTSC disc, and donate the other to charity in the UK. Just j/king.:wink:


#12

you right that is easier alan


#13

Bought many from ebay from same seller. Didn’t realize or think about the PAL vs. NTSC thing. Would need to replace about 20 dvd’s. Worth the $30 for ConvertX2DVD and the cost of some blanks… :iagree:

Thanks to all for input.
Mike


#14

actually I think PAL is a much better video quality than NTSC but in region 1 we have NTSC so when buying a TV or dvd player I always make sure they can play both formats. I just think that is easier than spending the extra time converting the format to something that will be even less quality than having the dual format TV and dvd player. But as long as you are happy that is what counts. Happy burning knichel


#15

I agree, Happy Holidays and Happy Burning.:wink:


#16

There are many Narnia DVDs that are NTSC on ebay. I wonder how you miss that. Shrek3 is supposedly cheap by now.

As for the CXD log from post #3, if you plan to do movie only choose VTS3 only and select only the needed audio and subtitle streams. However, given that there are too many frames duplicated and dropped, I’d suggest you rerip the DVD with DvdFab and try the conversion again.

The conversion failed when processing VTS6, look at the error entry. This VTS is probably useless. Don’t include it in the conversion.
