I've been using dvdfab for years without any problem. I'd look further for the cause of the audio issues before giving up on it. One of the best $80 investments I've made in this game.

I love dvdfab. It's powerful, flexible, and easy to use. I did the crazy "eight steps but its free" thing for a while, and I'm very pleased with the price I paid for this program. I don't use FLAC,...

I have to be the rare person to agree with the OP. I don't really care about the director's vision, and in my opinion, 1.78 is wide enough for home viewing. I don't go as far as zooming or scaling,...
