Hi there, I Am trying to make a â€œDTS/Dobly Digitalâ€ sound demo CD, by ripping favourite clips from some movies, in order that I can use this DVD as a â€œreference audioâ€ demo CD to use when friends come over and wanna check out my system.
For example, to show off the bass I use the tank scene from â€œGoldeneyeâ€, to show off the surround capabilities I use the fight scene from â€œGladiatorâ€, etc.
Anyways, my problem is this: when I used the program â€œDVD Decryptorâ€ to rip tracks from some DVDâ€™s, and I burned these tracks to a blank DVD-R using the authoring program, on some of my video clips, there would be no audio present.
Now I know there was audio ripped properly in the â€œ.vobâ€ file, since when I play the ripped â€œ.vobâ€ file off my hard drive using â€œpowerDVDâ€ it tells me that the alternative audio (DTS or DD) is there, so the problem seems to be with my authoring program improperly importing the audio when I am making the DVD-R.
I noticed that all the clips where I ripped a DD5.1 (AC3 6 channel) encoded video clip from worked fine, but I think that none of the clips I ripped that had a DTS 6 channel track did not play with any sound being present. In order to save room on the DVD-R, I chose only to rip the 6 channel DTS tracks first, and a DD5.1 track if available second, but I never ripped any of the 2 channel audio tracks.
**** The questions:
Is DVD Decyptor the best program for ripping video clips? I havenâ€™t had any complaints with it so far, but just wondering...
What program is the best/easiest to use in order to import all the video clips I take onto a DVD-R (For use in a stand-alone DVD player)? I need the following features to work:
a. I need to be able to specify which audio track is to be played back as the default track. I.e. when I rip only a single audio track (by using the program in question 1) I need to be able to specify that that audio track is to be the primary (default) track, since I will often just be ripping the DTS or AC-3 (6 channel) track.
This way, when the video clip is run off a stand alone DVD player, it always plays the default audio track that I want (usually DTS 6 channel audio).
b. I need to be able to link some video clips together as multiple chapters, so that for example, when video clip #1 finishes it will automatically either start playing video clip#2, or go to the DVD menu, depending what I specify.
c. I need a DVD a DVD-authoring program that supports not just 2 channel or 6 AC-3, but DTS audio as well since the program I currently use doesnâ€™t seem to handle DTS encoded .vob files properly.
d. The program needs to intelligently handle .vob or .ifo files or have very good documentation, since I honestly donâ€™t know what to do or how to edit the .ifo file.
Thanks for the help.
