Please Help, Vob Converted to mp4 file wont play

Post by Pizzax »

Description of problem or question:
My vob file that was converted to mp4 won't play unless the mp4 size is lower than the original vob size. My vob file sized ripped by DVD Decrypter was about 3.89 GB. If I run it through handbrake with a low RF slider value( lets says 15-20) , it will not play. However, if I set the RF slider higher to about 20-25, it produces a mp4 file size below 3.89 GB and I CAN play it but I lose the quality of the video. I don't want to lose quality out of my vobs so I want to select a low RF value but if I do then the mp4 file can't play.



Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):
Get a vob file
set setting so it converts to mp4
Set RF Slider low value so it produces an mp4 size is higher than the vob. My vob was about 3.89GB and when I converted it, the mp4 file size was greater than 4GB and when I tried to play it, it doesn't play.

1. you will always loose some quality
2. your input is MPEG2, your output is x264 which by definition will already have smaller file sizes (depending on RF setting), so it's not bad having a smaller file size
3. your log states "MP4ERROR: File size exceeded 4 GB; output unplayable. Enable "Large file size" to fix it."

I'm not sure if 3. is something from the format itself or from handbrake.

Rename your .vob to .mpg if all you want to do is play it.

That won't fix the problem with his HandBrake-encoded MP4 output though. He needs to check the "large file size" checkbox, or better yet, instell the current version of HandBrake which does it automatically.

I just have a problem because the vob files that are over 4GB, I have to set the RF Slider to like 23 or more or else they wont play. I feel like I'm losing too much quality by setting the RF slider that high. Thanks Rodeo. But yes I will try to check the "large file size" box and check if it works. If I check the "large file size" check box does it affect anything else?
Again thank you for all your responses, I didn't know I would get these responses that fast.

If you use the latest version you should have no issues plus a more up to date program.

Okay i will try to use the new version, everything looks different on the newer version so it'll take some time to learn but I was checking a video on how to use the latest version and under summary and under format there are checkboxes saying Web Optimized, Align A/V Start,and iPod 5g Support but I dont see an automatically checked Large file size box like you guys mentioned. Under the output settings (under destination file) on Handbrake version 0.9.8(old) there is a check box for Large File Size, Web Optimized, and iPod 5G Support.

I wasn't specific enough. Rephrased:
"Rename your .vob to .mpg if all you want to do is play it locally."
This isn't meant to suggest encoding with Handbrake, nor does he state a premise for doing so.

@Pizzax - What is the intended use for your file -- local playback, streaming, upload, sharing, portable playback?

The latest version will do the large file size automatically.

My vob file i just keep as a backup incase my mp4 files become corrupt or broken. I plan on using it for sharing with family. They are family videos.
