dvd chapters shuffling?

Post by davekr »

new to this forum, but I have been using HB 0.9.4 x86_64 on an intel mac w/VLC....
I usually save to m4v for apple tv with the standard selections....

several DVD have ended up with chapters all out of order, quite disturbing when
I pull up the movie on ATV and then realize that everything is out of order....

what am I doing wrong?

You're not doing anything wrong, as such. This is a copy protection measure used on quite a few DVD's manufactured over the last 18 months. The disc is filled with dozens of duplicate dummy titles masquerading as the main film, but with the chapters shuffled. There's a thread in the General forum that shows how to identify the correct title.

Not reading the FAQ. Or prior posts.

No, he was correctly pointing out that you failed to abide by the rules of the forum found in the "Must Read" link in that big red box at the top of the page. If you had, you'd have quickly discovered the post that TedJ generously pointed out to you.

I saw TedJ's post, I was just disagreeing with him.
