Agreed - AppleScript is the way forward! If you have even basic scripting skills, it's pretty easy to customise a script to your own workflow and make sure you input the minimum data. FYI This might have changed with the most recent release of iTunes, but these scripts you are talking about, they d...

...I actually didn't get ANY of my movies or TV shows disc to show 23.976. I tested The Office, 24, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force and then for movies Blood Diamond, The Departed, and Stranger Than Fiction. I guess what I'm trying to ultimately find out is which framerate is more prevalent and what I s...

I do like the scrolling instead of switching through tabs or opening new windows. But, I think this project is not short on ideas, but instead it needs more experienced developers contributing to the code.

Well, it looks like the bottom line then is use same as source, since I'm ripping movies, which brings me back to the initial problem Glor Not all 'movies' are 23.976 (esp. older ones '30s, '40s), but anyway. I have not seen any blurring on my ATV. Sometimes I will get some stuttering during high a...

However, when I then try to read this video_ts file with handbrake, it finds no titles to rip.

Any help there?
Can you play this folder with the DVD player on your computer?

I had the exact same issue with The Rock and after DTOX it works... The Rock (first edition) has a known mastering problem (read about it on the web years ago), something to do with the layer change.

You could guess. Most movies are 23. TV Shows, it all depends. But, if it is interlaced (which you can see), then you know its 29, if its not, then it is 23.
I don't know if this holds true for all content, though.

You may have to resort to some less technical means to make this work. Got a DVD/VCR combo? No, I don't. And the word VCR gives me a headache. I have already spent way too much time on these episodes. I think I will cut my losses and move on to my other discs. Seasons 1-4 gave me no problems. Seaso...

I use ffmpegX, just drop a VOB file into it and it will give you the frames per second. But, you must be careful; sometimes the first VOB file in the set will start out at 29.9 (studio logo, etc) but will then drop to 23.9 for the actual movie. So I usually drop a VOB file from the middle of the set.

No. DVD2OneX produces a VOB set that is short by five minutes even though it reads the time correctly.

I think this may be related to the "Zero Cell" issue. If you have DVD2OneX, look at the file in question on the DVD and see what is there. MTR 3 r14 doesn't seem to work on everything you'd expect it to as far as I can tell. No zero cells. These discs have no advanced copy protection. Also, MTR mak...

Mastering ‘errors’ prevent encoding

Just thought I’d share this in case others are having problems encoding from certain discs. To make a long story short, I am unable to completely encode certain episodes of Voyager. It appears there is a mastering ‘error’ in some of the VOBs that prevent an episode to encode entirely. MTR full disc ...

To whatever your source material is, either 23 or 29 for region 1 discs, can't speak for PAL discs.

Never use 'same as source'. Set the fps manually. This might not be your problem but you should do it anyway.

I can only suggest that you determine your fps and set it yourself, don't use ‘same as source’. A long time ago (Sep '06) I encoded some South Park for my iPod using ‘same as source’ and they would not transfer. Went back and set the fps myself and they transferred. The problem is that it was so lon...

Interesting. What do you mean by "re-authorized". I am also on windows so I don't have mac the ripper readily available... Can I use anyDVD somehow to do this? The VIDEO_TS folder needs to be re-written with just the title you are intrested in. This requires the full disc to be on your hard drive. ...

This might be due to timecode breaks. For MPEG Streamclip to encode certain VOBs it has to correct these breaks.

DVD2oneX can merge DVD titles together. You don't want to re-encode when using QuickTime, have it passthrough the video and audio. I don't see a problem with .mov files, they are compatible with the iPod and AppleTV. Non-Apple products might have a problem with them though. Take note that DVD specia...

I've updated the patch referred above so that it correctly handles lengthy files (like VOBs 8-). It also now opens .VOB/.vob suffix files - no need to rename them. There is however an apparent bug with the duration calculation code - it seems for many VOBs (other than perhaps little chapter extract...

Use movie only mode in DVD2oneX, Dual Layer option. This will create a VIDEO_TS folder with only one title (uncompressed) and will be seen by Handbrake.
