Bit of a frustrating problem, someone gave me a home recorded DVD that has severe problems in its structure. Video won't open with shrink, or will only appear to be 11 seconds long (when it's obviously longer). I managed eventually to get the full mpg2 out of it with vob2mpg in vob-mode.

But I lost the CC subtitles in that process. CC Extractor after 1 line just encounters a long stream of "unsupported XDS packet" messages. I am sure that is because of the problems in the DVD. I briefly tried to have ifoedit make new ifo and bup files but no improvement.

Before I give up completely, does anyone have any more ideas if the CC cannot be salvaged? I can make the files available if necessary - for the sole purpose of solving the issue of course.
