How / what are you capturing?kevbo said:Well, that's what bothers me, because I tried just that: save the clip as a VOB, named .mpg, and fed it to GUI_for_dvdauthor, and I still had the same problem. Very very weird.
I wonder if it is my capture somehow...
I tend to capture using a Hauppauge WinTV PVR USB2, and pretty much exclusively using wintvcap. Briefly flirted with GB-PVR when I first got the PVR thingmy.kevbo said:Just TV from my Hauppauge WinTV-PVR 500, using a free package called GB-PVR. Nothing exotic...
Have now found what settings I used before VideoReDo had it's VOB type save:-Lester Burnham said:Well before VideoReDo had the same as VOB option I used mplex to create an mpg input file with a compliant header for dvdauthor.
If you're interested in this option, I'll try and find the options I used - but it'll probably be tomorrow before I can find them.
And you haven't even bought me dinner... ;-)Anole said:Lester Burnham uses DVDauthor and seems to have it working pretty well.
I assume he can beat you 'till ya make it work, too.
He sure doesn't seem too shy.
Well that rather depends on your perception of the term VOB - there's doing what VRD does now, or the discussed future possibility of it also providing a limited authoring process.Anole said:I know DVDauthor will or can take VOB output by VRD, but in the bigger scheme of things, having VRD put out VOB files isn't really very useful.
(hopefully, someone will come to defend that attack, and you can hear the other side)
That's because what's output by VRD at present, isn't a fully fledged VOB - it's simply an mpeg file (of specific type - I'm thinking in the headers) and with blank / empty NAV packets.Anole said:People seem to get caught up thinking VOBs are good.
Not when output by an editor.
Only when output by an authoring program.
But where it's of use and not much extra effort, then why not have the functionality. The problem being the terminology. At the time, I campaigned against using the terminology of VOB in VRD, but was seemingly overruled.Anole said:You can search for some old discussions on how the VOBs put out have blank fields to be filled in by DVDauthor.
No other authoring programs that I know of, use this feature/format!
Yes. Here are the steps I am using. I open my original file, select the scenes to keep, and save to mpg. I then open that mpg file, the selection start and stop defaults to the whole file, so I just click add selection. Then I save to type vob (giving it an mpg extension to keep gui_for_dvdauthor happy).kevbo said:Thanks for waking this up again. I just came to post and ask about this again, and saw your post.
What do you mean by "select all"? Inside of VideoRedo? So, if you basically make VideoRedo process a vob a second time, it works?
That kind of leads me to believe it is something in VideoRedo's output that it corrects a second time.

If I follow those steps, and use dvdauthor 0.6.10, I don't get errors, at least so far. It does appear to be something VRD is doing, as the errors occur where commercials were cut out.
