v 0.9.5 - Error Reading NAV packet - Non commercial DVD

Post by Shadow2198 »

Hey guys

I've read the forums and seen people having this message in relation to commercial DVD with copyright or encryption on them and so alternative tools are required.

I however have an issue with DVDs created myself of home movies. I had 5 which were created at the same time quite some time ago and not want to have them available on my computer. The first 2 worked fine usng HandBrake but it now seems to of stopped working and this error is appearing. The activity log is copied below; a number of different errors seem to appear but the Error Reading AV packet starts to appear quite a way down the list

Any assistance would be appreciated.

Apologies, the Activity Log was too long, hopefully I've done the Pastebin thing right, link is below:

I'm assuming the DVD plays fine on a standalone player / in a DVD app?

If so, try disabling "libdvdnav" in the preferences window. You'll need to restart Handbrake for it to take effect. Does that allow the encode to succeed?

Previously I wsn't even able to start the encode (selected the DVD as the Source but was then unable to select the Title. Having disabled "libdvdnav" I am now able to get beyond that stage and begin the encode, however one of my DVDs only got to 1% while the other got to 45% complete then just hung and didn't move again (link to the log is below). The couple of errors that come up are: "libdvdread: CHECK_VALUE failed in nav_read.c:264" and "dvd: vobu read error blk"

The DVDs can freeze halfway through on my standalone DVD player but plays fine all the way through on my computer (Windows Media Player).

Sounds like a damaged DVD and/or bad encoding. Someone with more expertise can weigh in, but I don't think it would be possible to get beyond that.
