Thread: dvdrip (transcode) : video freezes after first few seconds

    Exclamation dvdrip (transcode) : video freezes after first few seconds

    i tried using dvdrip to rip dvd, it does the job but the resulting avi file starts good and after first few seconds (like just after the movie shows the statue of liberty in movies..(sorry ) )
    it freezes the video to one frame and continues the movie with only sound and one frozen picture. it resumes the video after few minutes... (the av sync difference is nearly about 1-2 minutes which i cannot correct using the players). The ripped vob files are just fine but only the transcoded avi files are not good.
    why???

    Not a direct answer... but you could consider possibly an
    alternative to using dvd::rip... download mplayer from packman and the
    w32codecs (?? might not need that) and install them.


    Then:

    mplayer -dumpstream -dumpfile movie.vob dvd://1
    (in general)

    to rip to mpeg2.

    You can also do avi.

    mencoder movie.vob -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -oac mp3lame \
    -lameopts cbr:br=128 -vf-add dsize=720:-2,scale=480:272,crop=480:272 \
    -delay .02 -ffourcc DIVX -o movie.avi

    (adjust the size and scaling to what you need... my PMP does 480x272... remove the vf-add
    stuff if you don't want to scale)

    Replace movie.vob with dvd://1 (in general) if you want to go straight from DVD to avi.

    The delay is to adjust for minor sync issues... tune to whatever you need.

    thank you. but it was handy with dvdrip. It used to work well. I dont know what is going on here. i will try to convert it to other formats and see what happens.(instead of transcoding to avi..) (the problem has to be occuring while transcoding.)any one who have faced similar problems before??
