I am experiencing an issue on every DVD that I try to rip to “Generic” in the DVD to Mobile module.
I insert DVD, I choose Generic. From the Title listing, I select the main movie, then hit Next. On the next screen I select the main movie track, and click Configure. On the Configure screen, I choose ps3 device. I go down to Video Format and choose “High Quality Encoding” and “Fixed Bitrate”. For the Bitrate I type in “3072”. I save this new configuration as “ps3.default”. Then I hit OK. Then, if I click directly on Configure again, and look at the Video Format box, it has switched back to “Fixed File Size” and the bitrate is now “3070”. <-this number varies actually
Why does it do this? So, every time I rip a movie, I have to manually select Fixed Bitrate and make sure it says 3072. Why isn’t it saving under my ps3.default profile? This is especially annoying and tedious when I’m doing a tv series, and have to do these steps continually for each episode in the list. I should be able to just hit PS3.default and expect my settings to be the same each time.
I don’t know if this is a known bug or what… I did a little searching and could not find it. Anyone else seeing this issue? FWIW, I’m using the PS3 setting to make videos that are compatible with my XBOX360 and Zune80. I wish these “devices” were in the list but I have to settle for “PS3”.
