I’m trying to use DVDShrink in conjunction with XMPEG to basically edit the DVD before I encode the VOB. The problem that I’m having is that XMPEG crashes every time I try to load a VOB created by DVDShrink. What’s wrong? Is there anything I can do?
I had the same problem. I don’t know if is a bug of DVD shrink or of XMPEG, but every time I try to use XMPEG on a “shrinked” file application crashes. However, XMPEG is under development for a new version (is out in beta right now). Maybe new version will solve this problem .
Ok, I found a solution. For whatever reason XMPEG doesn’t like that you have one large VOB file instead of several. I also turned off most of the other functions that DVD Shrink does and now XMPEG isn’t throwing a fit when I sak it to look at Shrink’s VOB’s. If you dink around with shrink, you CAN get XMPEG to like the files. I also am using Shrink to take the VOB’s directly off the DVD (I don’t think that makes any difference however).
I never have a single large vob file; every time I tried to use XMPEG on a “shrinked” movie, XMPEG crashes.
I hope that new version correct this bug.
This happen even if I don’t do any operation on the movie, i.e also on ripped movies without any “shrinking”. Only movies ripped with DVD decrypter can be converted in avi with XMPEG.
apperantly not. I’ll post the exact setting I have with Shrink.
First I have version 188.8.131.52
I have checked ‘automatically open video_TS subfolders’ and ‘Run analysis and backup in low priority mode to improve multi-tasking’
‘Enable video and audio preview’ is checked
stereo/system Default Renderer
.The only thing I have checked is Split VOB files into 1 GB chunks (recommended).’ is the only thing I have checked.
Under ‘Stream Selections’
all languages and AC3 or LPCM
Nothing checked under File I/O
Sorry but I don’t know how to get any more specific than that. I rip the movie directly from the DVD with Shrink, and don’t use DVDDecrypter at all in this process.
I’m using the newest XMPEG and DivX codec 6 (ripping with insane quality). For whatever reason the XMPEG seems to accept these shrinked files perfectly. Hope this helps.
For me the solution is avoid to rip with shrink; I rip with DVD decrypter, and all is fine
