Encoding Fps drops to 0.0- ripping stops after a few tasks!

vbimport

#1

I’m using DVDFab Platinum to rip DVD’s to WMV files (XBox360 format), and splitting the Chapters.

This generates a list of tasks corresponding to each Chapter I’m ripping.

DVDFab seems to rip several chapters with no problem, but when I look at the Processing screen after a while, I see that it is in the middle of a task, but the Encoding Fps has dropped to Zero, and no progress is being made!

I have tried to pause and resume, or even Finish and start again, but to no avail! I have to quit DVDFab entirely and start it up again to get it to start processing again!

When I look at the log files, it just shows the last task running normally, and then “User Cancelled” when I finally gave up!

Any clues why it just stops encoding??? I’ve let it run all night to see if it starts again, but it doesn’t . . .

Thanks!

This seems to happen around the 8th task or so . . . it rips a number of chapters successfully, and then just stops encoding . . . no error messages . . . just no activity.

Usually, the PC has nothing else running, but it doesn’t seem to matter. I’ve tried two different Vista PC’s, and I get the same result!

Can anyone offer some concrete suggestions?

Thanks!

It’s still happening with the new Beta release!

I’ve narrowed it down- it happens on the 2nd pass- the progress gauge stays at 0.0%, and the encoding fps slowly drops from 60+ down to 0.

What is going on???


#4

I have this issue as well. Is there any resolution?

I typically use Ipod profiles for conversions and personally, I haven’t seen this behavior for awhile.
As I recall, it was usually more prevalent with XBox360 profiles.
Regardless though, this behavior was confined to specific “buggy” versions.

There are only a few things I can think of to affect any change on the user end…

  1. Rip the dvd to your hdd first and then try the conversion.

  2. Forget the 2-pass process and use 1-pass until the bug is fixed.
    I’m guessing you’re not going to see a big difference anyway…at least I don’t.

  3. Revert to a version that’s reliable
