I have been using DVDFAB Platinum (option: mobile) for some time now currently using version 18.104.22.168 with lifetime activation (paid up of course).
I always use the “generic” option followed by vob pass through (which I believe is 100% quality), I don’t split the file I create one single file.
I have a MG450HD media player (2 in fact) which plays the vob files created by DVDFAB really well.
However there are some movies (for example Wall-E, Chicken Little, Monster House to name a few) which exhibit a very odd fault at certain intervals during playback.
This fault is as follows (I’ll try my best to explain) it is similar to a micro fast forward of about 2, 3 or 10 seconds worth of play time. It almost appears like a micro skip both video & audio “micro skip” generally speaking the movie will continue to play without any problem. Wall-E for example suffers it the most whilst Monster House suffers the fault less.
This fault does not appear to occur when there is a chapter change (compared to the original DVD) remember I convert my movies to one single vob file.
I have tried running DVDFAB on an XP system, a 32bit & a 64bit Vista system all using different drives. I’ve also tried different configurations of DVDFAB (ie: path player always on or off etc, changing the cache option etc).
No matter what I do the “skips” always seem to occur & at the same place. I have over 200 titles currently on my NAS & most do not suffer this (for example Transformers & The Incredibles). To say this is frustrating the hell out of me is putting it mildly, I feel incredibly “newbie” & have tried searching this forum & Google for any answers or people suffering the same problem.
I recently learned (I tried this on my Vista Ultimate 64bit PC) if I rename my vob files to name.mpg Vista’s in-built media player plays them no problem. However the “skips” are worse when playing through WMPlayer as the skip tends to fast forward a lot further.
Apologies for the long post but I really have tried to find the answers before posting & really have no idea what could be causing this. BTW I have also tried purchasing another copy of my originals just in case I had a dud, still no change!
Any help on this would be immensely appreciated!
