No, strangely enough. Not always. I've tried the same titles on Windows and still had no luck.

DVDFab has to phone home for keys; maybe they have database issues.

I've learned with DVDFab to keep a couple of versions on hand. Some versions will have issues with particular titles where others will not, it's not unlike them to come out with a messed up update.

I have Any DVD HD and I made full backups of my library.
Now I am running out of room and tired of previews etc.
So I tried just using anydvd to get rid of all the previews etc onto another drive.
It was quick but it would not play.
Thinking I needed to do this from a disk and not the files I tried with the original disk.
Same thing when I check all the boxes in anydvd to get rid of all the junk it sure does but the movie won't play LOL

1) should it work ?
2) should it work using the ripped full disk files on the HD ?
3) anyone know a way to get this to work I don't care about menus extras and junk just the movies, I am giving up on I want it all thinking.
My new way of thinking is that its the future anyway with media players.
If possible I want to use the HD files its about 10 times faster than ripping from the disk.

Did you backup to ISO or folders? ClownBD should be able to help.

I used the folder option with everything from anydvd HD.
I will play these back on different tv's one with dedicated stereo amp, one with soundbar and might play back on a standard tv.
What audio options should I be conserned about? This was one of the reasons I originally just dumped the entire disk.
Kinda stupid when I look back on it, ok it seemed good at the time I can do it all.

fast skip on preview after preview and oh wait thats another preview, but its special it said feature, then it said preview.
Ok I am going just movie like the old pirate thing shows my popcorn is cold my coke is flat and still can't get to the movie.


I will dl the full clownBD and give it a shot...thank you

Does DVDFab HD Decrypter operate in the background like AnyDVD HD does ... with respect to using Clown_BD?

No, they have a program called dvdfab virtual drive that works like anydvd:

Understandable ... they have a confusing array of products and a confusing array of licensing deals. HD Decrypter does not work like AnyDVD (in the background). I looked at Passkey and the free version is crippled. That's understandable, but makes its use questionable. So I might as well cough up for AnyDVD HD.

AnyDVD-HD +lifetime license was easily the best piece of software I have ever purchased.

ok instead of working on my library right now I just got Prometheus and going to test both makemkv and clown to determine which I like best copying the disk to my nas.

is the only problem with either determining the main movie when there are multiple listings of it?
Again do I need to copy AC3 and DTS to use on myltiple types of sound players on dbones guilde it shows DTS master (checked) and AC3 only listed with other languages and none are checked.
then on the right hand side it shows DTS and AC3 under audio Both checked.

Determining the audio is a piece of cake - go for the lossless, i.e. DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby TrueHD or, for the older titles, PCM. Picking the main movie video when it is not obvious can be a challenge. Sometimes you just need to consult the internet. smile.gif

I mostly agree with that but as usual it will come down to what equipment you will be using. In my case for example: a WDTV hooked straight to a bedroom television, with movies that have TrueHD I have to also rip the AC3 with them, since the WDTV passes through TrueHD and my Panasonic TV has no clue how to decode it I wouldn't get audio otherwise. With AC3 taking up such little space anyway it's not a big deal and may save some headache down the road if needed.

To confirm the main movie try running through BDRebuilder first to see what playlist it pulls. This should confirm for you.

As pepar mentioned as well, use the internet. If there are multiple playlists with different timecodes sites like Amazon, etc... should show the correct timecode (doesn't always work if the difference is in seconds). Otherwise, newsgroups work out well

I love using Netflix to figure out TV series episodes smile.gif

Triage this for us, if you will please. At what point is merely looking at it in Clown not sufficient, requiring ... what's next .. forum or BDRebuilder?

And how does BDRebuilder know??

I use bdrebuilder already. You just simply download, run, point to the disc , choose the main movie option. BDRebuilder will analyze the disc and show yo only the main movie playlist. How it knows tbh, I have no idea (it must have the same logic built into it that a BD Player has?). I know blackssr does this method as well and works for him (he actually suggested it)

The issue with CLown is that it will present all the playlists, so if the studios are trying to get tricky they will throw a lot of bad playlists in there to keep you guessing what the main movie is.

Yes I do the same thing, Any DVD HD lifetime plus I use IMGBurn, even though Any DVD HD can rip to an ISO by itself.

As I but that will change w/Cinevia. If your player gets 'updated' to it and if the original disc had it you won't be able to play that rip anymore.

The only player I have that has Cinavia is the PS3 but that can't play my BD ISOs. I thought we were safe with the PCH products, Boxee Boxe, etc. from Cinavia? I thought it only has to be included if the newer player does full BDmenus?

This is one reason I plan on picking up an A300. Something a little newer for full BD menus to use instead of my C200.
post #1795 of 5693
You're safe w/the A400 etc since since it won't support full BD ISO menus. I don't have an A300 so I'm not sure if it does support full BD ISO menu support: I'd ask someone who has it to be sure (someone did post the A300 does but I can't recall if they said they had one).

A300 supports full BD menus. None of the current players (200 and 300 series) will get updated with Cinavia (same goes for the Dune Smart series)

Yup - I confused myself: A300 supports full BD ISO menu's but NOT 3D BD ISO's.

Thanks. Adding bdrebuilder to my arsenal.

Follow-up question - Lee Ritenour Overtime has two playlists. One was filmed/recorded in a studio and the other at the Montreaux Jazz Festival. Both comprise the title. (I have not watched it yet to see if there is any content I want to lose.) How would you proceed with a title like this?

Thanks again!

Not sure I follow, which playlist do you want? I assume they would have different timecodes to determine which is which

Both playlists comprise the title, and I would want them both. Rip the entire disc?
