Hey cdfreaks team, need your help! My buddy’s wedding is coming up this week, and they need some emergency help in an area I myself am not too familiar in. So, here I am They need a home DVD converted to MPEG or AVI so that the slideshow maker can do his thing.
My friend recorded the VHS tapes to DVD using a component liteOn dvd recorder. It was finalized. It works on his computer using WMP and stand-alone dvd player. It was a DVD+R.
When you open the disc contents in windows,
3 Folders open (and respective files in ()'s)
Video_RM (1 video_rm.bup , 1 video_rm.ifo)
(1 video_ts.bup , vts_01_0 video_ts.ifo ,vts_01.0.ifo , video_ts.vob vts_01_1.vob vts_01_2.vob vts_01_3.vob)
The DVD has chapters from the liteon player (created everytime he hit stop)
To make the slideshow, the guy needs the DVD converted to either AVI or MPG -
** This is where we are stuck, and are confused as to which program free / commercial?
** what files to select from these two folders?
** Will the file be 1 large avi? or mpeg? Can we see each chapter before conversion?
Will AutoGK work? If so, would we select the same .ifo & .vob file names for input/output respectively?
Well, if you have the moment to give some useful guidance, would be amazing. Thank you as always. We are both in different locations so I will have to telephone him this information! I don’t have the DVD here, it is with him in another state
