If you wish to use your receiver's Toslink jack and surround sound you'll need to feed it a stream it knows what to do with --- AC-3 or DTS as it sits on the DVD. I suppose this means an .avi file with AC-3 passthrough for example, played back via VLC. Or forget converting altogether and just playba...

Re: stuttering video

Forcing HB to use 29.97fps instead of "Same as source" fixed this problem for each video that had the stutter problem. That would be because I think it was rhester who clarified that "same as source" is simply mislabled. That setting is actually always 23.97fps (i.e. film) --- HB doesn't really sen...

It's been a long time, but I think the idea with DVD2OneX is to uncheck any cells that are 0MB. Excluding them=bypassing them.

Re: Noob question about zero cells

Empty cells are decoys, plain and simple --- inserted to fool computer DVD rippers to create an unusable, or nearly so, result. ...

The available audio codec you encode to depends upon the container you choose from the File Format and then Codecs popups.

Only the sampling rate and bitrate are optionally editable --- and that should be true for HB/VisualHub etc.

If you want the same file to play on both iPod and in Quicktime, do not choose anamorphic.

"Same as source" = 23.97fps always , so you're fine there since you're working with a film source.

You might be experiencing the audio bugaboo in the "no audio" thread since encoding fps tanks as a symptom of this. Read through that thread.
