I wish to convert some DVD's to ReplayTV mpegs so that I can serve them from my DVArchive server. Primarily DVD's where I'm not interested in menus, extras, etc. Really, DVD's I'm just too lazy to run upstairs and grab. :D I also want to use ffmpeg so that I can script the process.
The source movie is 4 VOB files. I am able to convert them individually into mpeg files, then run them through rtvconvert. The question is, how to combine them with ffmpeg??? (I am
able to combine them with either Womble or VideoReDo, but AFAIK
, you can't script those).
This doesn't work . .
cat *VOB | ffmpeg -i - -target dvd -aspect 4:3 h3.mpg
Nor does this:
ffmpeg -i 1VOB -i 2VOB -i 3VOB -i 4VOB -target dvd -aspect 4:3 h3.mpg
Any suggestions? Is ffmpeg the wrong tool for the job? Am I nuts for attempting this?
