Hi
I am trying to author to ISO a .wtv stream-fixed file. Keeps failing with Audio Ring Buffer Overflow. I have defined 6 cuts, if that's relevant.

Pls help?

v4.21.3.667

Thanks!

Hold Shift and click Tools->Options. This will bring up a hidden list of options. Double the values for #13 and #14. If you still get the error double them again. If you still get the error let me know and I'll investigate further.

Thanks for the quick reply!
I doubled and re-doubled, but same error.
It happens around the start of the second scene of the second pass, consistently.

OK one more thing. Try running the file through Tools->Quick Stream Fix but save to a MPEG2 Program Stream instead. Then edit that and save to ISO. Want to make sure it's not the WTV format causing the problem.

I got ARBOs when upgrading earlier beta versions without uninstalling first. Not sure if that issue has been resolved with the later versions but you may want to consider uninstalling VRD, rebooting, then installing it. Worked for me.

Always a good suggestion. When uninstalled, VRD will reinstall with new defaults if they have been changed from the previous version installed.

I quick stream fixed to .mpeg PS, but it still quit with ARBO at the first scene, second pass. Also tried it with upped buffer numbers but then it quit with '!'

I could try reinstalling, but I never installed a beta, so not sure if a re-install would help...

Unless I'm mistaken, .667 is a beta version. The suggestion to uninstall and reinstall still stands.

Second pass? Are you forcing a recode? If so why? The resolution, bitrate and file size should all be compatible with DVD without recoding.

Hmm. I selected second pass to improve quality. Sounds like that's not right? The iso dialogue indicated the file would fit on a regular dvd (approx 4gb).

You shouldn't see any yellow icons in the Output Options list except next to "Max GOP". If you see any others then you're recoding. The only reason this would happen with your file is if you were cropping or if you specifically set a different resolution or bitrate. Your original file is already DVD complaint so it shouldn't need to recode at all.

here we go:

I had 'major recode' by Output Quality. I went in to 'change output options' and altered bitrate to 'no change'. The ISO was created fine.

I have another file I am trying to ISO, and that also defaulted to 'major recode' for Output Quality with bitrate 3.55 mbps, and also Resolution with 352 x 576, against this initial file. Setting output options to 'no change' in this case doesn't seem to 'stick', unless I tick 'non-compliant dvd'. Why is that?

You need to select "allow non-complaint". The DVD standard only allows a few resolutions. In the case of PAL video the only two allowed are 352x576 and 720x576. However most DVD players don't actually care and will play video with any width between those two values. The "allow non-complaint" option was specifically added for that purpose.

Excellent. Got it

One last thing, do I still have to specify a max GOP if I have selected non-compliant?

Thanks for your guidance.

Just leave the max GOP setting. That setting will only kick in if the GOP length of the original exceeds the DVD spec. In most cases it wont do anything.
