Okay, I've got DVDFab Platinum 188.8.131.52 with Mobile option.
It works great, except I've got this one issue. Sometimes when I'm ripping episodes of TV shows off DVD, one of two things happens:
1) There are 7 episodes on the disc, all of which show up as frame resolution 624x480 and aspect ratio of 1.300000 (4:3). When I set the kbps to 2000, some show a bits/pixel ratio of .279 and other show one of .223. When I rip them, the .279 is fine and the .223 looks like crap, even though the final kbps is ~2000 and the file size is the exact same.
What's causing this? Why do I need to up the kbps on some of the episodes to 2500 and leave some at 2000? They should be exactly the same.
2) On other TV show DVDs, sometimes the list of available frame resolutions is different for one or two episodes out of the bunch. That is, all will be available at 624x480, except one which only goes as high as 608x464...
Why is this happening? Shouldn't they be exactly the same?
