I mostly use BDRebuilder instead of ClownBD because I like to compress somewhat. I havent' been able to tell the difference between the compressed and uncompressed on my 65" TV. Most of my movies are compressed down to 22GB. Of course one can compress them down to 8.5GB and put them on a DVD, but I'm a little pickier than that.

I generally stream my movies via iso to my HT in the living room, but on vacation, I copy them to my laptop and it took me awhile to find a free solution. I found a player called VSO which does a great job, but with no menus. I really didn't want to spend $50 or more for a player I only use once in awhile.

Is it possible, when ripping to a media server, to move subtitles to fit within the Scope image, e.g. 2.35:1, when using vertical stretch and an anamorphic lens?

Thanks,
Jeff

Yes... I have an anamorphic lens for my pj along with a 2.35 screen and I use ClownBD and the BDSup2Sub program (actually a java jar) used by it to manipulate subtitles can also move subtitles (up or down as necessary) so that they are wholly contained inside a selected aspect ratio (say 2.33). It can also deal with oddball subtitles (such as those with Mesrine: Public Enemy #1 which for some inexplicable reason were generated at the full 1920x1080 resolution) that are fullscreen by allowing one to scale them (I found for Mesrine a Y scaling of .85 was sufficient to bring the titles into the 2.33 area) since they are not allowed to be moved.

Long time DVDFab user here. I just rip the main movie and HD audio to .iso using the DVDFab. I could care less about chapters or extras. No muss, no fuss, 1 application, a couple clicks and it just works.

Yes, nice software. But they are on a subscription model and I like free or pay once.

DVDFab does have a free version, and I believe you can just pay once (lifetime option)

AnyDVD HD or DVDFab's DVD Copy is what is used to transfer Blu-rays to a media server, right? No freeware/shareware does it? And DVDFab's DVD Copy is needed to back up one's DVD-Audio to ISO, right ... nothing else does it?

The basic DVD or Bluray ripper in DVDFab is free as far as I can see. Its kind of confusing because a screen pops up telling you various things have expired, but I have been using the free version to rip DVDs and Blurays for some time.

Also MakeMKV is free while in beta, which has been for the last few years. You can rip the main feature to a MKV container with whatever audio and subtitle tracks you want. Provided you don't want menus or special features it is a great method.

Yes, there is a 30 day trial period per each individual module. And then there is a fee for each of them as well.

No, the trial period is for the other modules. As far as I know the basic HD Decrypter function is free and works beyond the 30 day period.

Yes, the basic HD Decrypter is free after your 30 day trial expires, but there is a catch. Although you can continue to install and use new releases as they roll out, any new cracks for new copy protections and new BD+ generation are disabled for the non-paying users and won't be enabled for several months.

From the DVD Fab forum dated October 2009:

Quote:


Dear All,

Effective with DVDFab v6.1.2.5, the updates for the free version of the product, DVDFab HD Decrypter, will no longer be linked to updates of the registered version. There are many reasons for this, some of which are explained below.

The effect of this new policy is that some of the features, fixes and updates in the release notes will not apply to the HD Decrypter version of the product immediately. Users attempting to use a feature that has not been updated will receive a message to that effect. This includes updates to copy protection schemes for both DVD and Blu-ray. Specifically, for V6.1.2.5, the protection removal for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is not included in DVDFab HD Decrypter. For Blu-ray to Blu-ray, only through MKB10 is supported, while MKB11-16 have been added to the registered version.

This new policy was developed in part due to the increased staff workload in maintaining all the versions and defeating the new protections of both Blu-ray and standard DVDs. We also feel that the registered users who support product development financially should have the most timely access to new features. These and other business factors will make it more feasible for us to continue to offer the free version of DVDFab on an ongoing basis.

DVDFab HD Decrypter will continue to receive immediate bug fixes, and new protection removal will be updated generally within 30-60 days of initial release to registered users. Thank you for understanding this new policy and we hope you will continue to use and enjoy DVDFab products.

Best regards,
Fengtao
DVDFab Architect

I think that's pretty fair to be honest.

LOL, how can free be unfair. I've been using DVD Fab forever and have always been amazed that they provided a basic version for free.

The free HD Decrypter has been working for me so far, although I'm sure I'll eventually hit some new releases that it can't handle. But there's a 20% discount on all DVDFab products right now, so I think I'll probably get Blu-ray Copy.

Thanks for the tip. I'm going to need it, so I might as well buy it now.

Use MKVMergeGUI for all your muxing, splitting and joining tasks.

Download the MKVToolnix package to get it.

The author of this program will probably not give support for playback issues with the resulting file."

When I ripped both disc (usin makemkv) I selected only dts-hd on both disc. Did I mess up somewhere? Thanks

If you used the suggested trim times then this post in the slysoft forum contains the chapter times for all three movies. They are nearly perfect.

To add m2c:
I like to rip BR to ~8000 bitrate encoded video and keep HD audio (HD-DTS preferred) and have subtitles. Hence mkv files are the best way to go for me. I use a $20 program from Pavtube (it was on sale at the time). It's like MakeMKV but it also allows encoding the movie.
The file size is between 8-15 GB per movie. To me PQ is indistinguisable from the original BR disc (having HD sound is a lot more important to me) and these files I can stream wirelessly with no stuttering/hiccups. The one drawback: titles with forged subtitles do not play nice occasionally. In those cases I tend to sacrifice the HD sound and rip to mp4 files with subtitles burned in.

Not sure I follow, with forced subtitles why do you need to go with mp4, you can still burn in subtitles with mkvs and keep the hd audio

I'll have to double-check if that Pavtube program allows it. I really like the Pavtube program as it is so simple and it will spit out an mkv with HD sound and near HD PQ. All while generating a "reasonable" file size.

In my personal experience (and I am only slightly well-informed), whenever I have an original English-speaking movie with foreign language scenes, when using English subtitles (for the hard hearing), this is where I lost the foreign language subtitles. I'm sure you're right that you could burn in the foreign language scene, and than have English subtitles for the other scenes, I just haven't discovered a program that will do this (while maintaining HD sound etc) and is still relatively simple to use (like e.g. MakeMKV). If I am not mistaken, Handbrake will do this for regular DVDs but last time I checked it couldn't rip BR...

Update: just looked at handbrake.fr and it seems it can handle BR now. Cool.
HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows.
Supported Sources:
Most common multimedia files that libavformat and libavcodec support.
Any DVD or Bluray-like source which is NOT copy-protected. (removal of copy protection is not supported)

handbrake can rip blu rays now, as well as Blu rip and ripbot264

So I looked into it a bit more. Unfortunately, Handbrake still doesn't output HD audio

For those interested, the Pavtube program is called ByteCopy. Works very well for me

Hmmm... for some reason I thought HD Audio support was added. I don't encode my Blu rays unless I am trying to make a mobile copy so I never look at the HD Audio option (I believe there is a passthru choice though)
