  1. Here's what I did:

    DVD Decrypter to get the .VOB

    StaxRip to encode.

    The VOB's length is 11:36, but my rip is 35:17. If you try to go past 11:36 it just cuts to 35:17 and the video ends. Why is this happening, and how do I fix it?

  2. VOBs aren't meant to stand alone. You need the IFO files to determine how they should be accessed. Use a program like VOB2MPG to extract titles from a VOB/IFO set. The resulting MPG files will be just the data you want.

    I do have the IFO files. I used DVD Decrypter in IFO mode.

    DVDDecrypter hasn't been updated in YEARS. Decrypt/copy with something else.

    MakeMKV (currently free) can decrypt a DVD and create an MKV containing just the main movie in MPEG-2 format, with characteristics that are identical the video stored on the original DVD. I don't use Staxrip but I am guessing that it will accept an MKV containing MPEG-2 video as input and output an MKV containing AVC video.

    Updates don't matter.
    The DVD format hasn't been updated in 20+ years either. VOB is VOB, IFO is IFO.

    The ONLY thing that Decrypter fails at are those weird anti-copy schemes that literally broke the disc data integrity. While DVDs are still made, I've not seen any of that hair-brained BS in years. It was just a few big studios that did it, and they're now focusing on streaming protections (not even really caring much about Blu-ray, nothing new to report there in years either).

    Or truly fubar discs, data corrupt.

    I didn't get any errors decrpyting the VOB.

    But if the disk was decrypted correctly you would have the run time of the vob the same as the final mp4. Is it so ? The encoder appears to think so.

    or the issue is not the vob but the final encoder. You can test that with a different program. Even a different codec. If you then get a mp4 of 11 mins then you know where the issue lays.

    The encoder is StaxRip. I'll try some other stuff

  10. What happens when you play the VOB file? Does it play for 11:36 and stop (ore repeat if you player is set to repeat)? Does something abnormal happen after 11:36?

    Like others have said most newer discs ironically rip fine now with DVD shrink etc. Is this a multi angle disc? If so you may need to rip with DVD shrink or makemkv so it makes a output with only one angle. Just grabbing the VOB in this case may not work as it has no way of knowing its just a segment that isn't part of the main film
    if all else fails read the manual

    No. Not on source. It's only the MKV rip that screws up
    Quote Quote  
  14. Why don't you just cut the bad part off the end of the MKV? Or edit the VOB with Mpg2Cut2, save out an MPG file with just the part you want, and convert that?

    You need to quit using the wrong terms.

    Rip = extracting digital data unmolested from a (usually) container-less media, or a media that prevents staight-forward copying.

    Therefore:
    - CD Audio = rip
    - DVD-Video = rip
    - VHS = not rip (capture)
    - MKV = not rip (encode)

    You've simply screwed up your encoding settings.
    Or the program is crap, and doesn't properly understand the source.
    Or both.

    The original DVD has nothing to do with the problem you're facing.

    Isn't Rip = encode and Remux = lossless? I am using the right terms. I know it's the encode. I'm using StaxRip.

    The issue these days is that you see these illegal copies of dvds/blu-rays converted to another medium and described as 'DVDRip' etc.

    It's done out of ignorance since, as lordsmurf points out, the true meaning of 'Rip' is a 1:1 copy of the contents of digital media to a HDD.

    So your initial action using dvddecrypter is the rip. The second process from the vob to mkv is an encode. Does not help with a program named ***Rip.

    Now none of this helps you. Have you actually tried another program as you stated earlier ?

    No.

    In fact, you're sentence is nonsense. rip, lossless, encode, remux ... those are indeed video jargon terms. But whatever you're saying is not just wrong, but messed-up wrong.

    - remux has nothing to do with lossless.
    - rip has nothing to do with encoding.

    It's like saying "my car's steering manifold needs a jump start". It's so out of whack that you don't even know how to begin explaining what was wrong with that sentence. All you can do is think "WTF?" And that's what we have here in this thread.

    Perhaps start again by reading/understanding what those terms mean.

  19. Lossless means "without loss", where all pixels on screen while playing (original and encoded file) are the same as original.
    You have to encode using lossless codec , like utvideo, lagarith huffyuv or even x264 (but forcing it to encode lossless, for example: --qp 0 --profile high444) to get encoded video the same as original is (size would ballooned up, but nevertheless)

    Ah fun with terms. You can also mean both based on the program so terminology is really important. I.E I'm going to rip a disc using makemkv, then encode with handbrake using mkv as the output container.
    if all else fails read the manual

    Well if makemkv does nothing to the original source _ codec-wise/bitrate - it can be considered, as far as this forum is concerned, and that is all that matters here, a rip.

    Alter the original then it is an encode.

    After I posted the above I considered a real world example of when you can consider the correct terminology for a rip. I came up with the following:-

    If you rip a pair of jeans then they are still jeans. They do not magically become trousers (or pants depending on which side of the pond you are located - over here pants mean somat totally different)

    A rip is lossless since it's an exact bit for bit copy of the audio/video files on the original disc. So is a remux since you're placing the bit for bit copy (rip) into a new container. Once you do anything to a file (apply filters, trim, deinterlace, etc) and encode, even if you use a lossless codec or settings, it may be lossless, but it's no longer a bit for bit copy of the original.

    One of my many pet peeves is when posters talk about "ripping to <codec> (e.g. x264, .x265, mp4, etc)". This is ripping AND encoding.

    A DVD or Blu-ray rip can only be to a disc image container (.ISO, NRG, .IMG, etc) or folders (for DVD - AUDIO (usually empty), VIDEO and for Blu-Ray - BDMV and CERTIFICATE, which both contain multiple subfolders)

    As DB83 stated, MakeMKV can rip AND remux into an .MKV container. It can't rip to an disc image container or individual folders.

    You've stated you believe Staxrip is the issue and are planning to use other programs. If you're still having issues, it's possible there's something wrong with your rip. Bad rips do happen and the files are corrupted. List what programs you've used and you're trying to achieve (i.e. filters, filesize, etc) so someone can suggest better programs / settings to use.
