Topic: Simple, straightforward way to rip DVD to Mp4?
I've been DJing for years but am a newbie with digital DJing. I've looked around the forum so I'm sorry if this is a repost question....... I just want my Mp4's. Thats all. This is killing me! I WILL BE buying the PRO license soon, I just need a few weeks of practice at home before I buy, install and hit the road. No more having to carry CD's and DVD's will be nice..................

1) Use DVD Decrypter to rip each chapter (each music video) to an individual VOB. To do this..... Open DVD Decrypter, on the toolbar choose "Tools", "Settings", "IFO MODE" tab, "FILE SPLITTING: BY CHAPTER", click "OKAY", back to the toolbar choose "MODE", "IFO", check the box for each desired chapter, click the DVD to HDD button to rip)
2) Open Handbrake
3) Drag and drop the first VOB (or browse to it)
4) Check "Keep Aspect Ratio" box, "Anamorphic: None", "Modulus: 16", "Cropping" Automatic"
5) On "Video Filters" tab, everything should be off except "Decomb: Automatic"
6) Click "Add to Queue" and then "Start"
7) Repeat step 3 - 6 (all settings should actually be retained, and you don't need to click start again)
I've been using these settings for quite awhile and they work great. Handbrake does an excellent job of retaining quality. Filesizes can vary quite a bit, but that is because Handbrake is doing its job of giving extra size only when needed.
If there is a better quality ripping for filesize, I haven't found it. And after you get used to using the method above, it becomes pretty simple.

Try these settings below.
Launch dvd decrypter and select "tools" then "settings". Under the "general" tab you should have :-
"File System To Parse" AUTO
"Remove Macrovision Protection" checked
"Check For Structure Protection" checked
"Hide Pack header Warnings" checked
under the "Other" heading, all should be checked
Anything else can be left at default.
Next click the "IFO Mode" tab.
"Select Main Movie" unchecked
"Enable Stream Processing" checked
"Uncheck Suspect Cells" checked
Set "File Splitting" to "By Chapter"
"Copy IFO File" checked
"Remove RC Protection" checked
"Remove RCE Protection" checked
Patch M2V Timecode" Checked
Everything else under "IFO Mode" should be unchecked.
NEXT, Click the "File Mode" tab
"Select Files" none
"Stream processing" set to "show all"
"File Splitting" set to "By VOB ID"
"Ignore Unreferenced VTS Sets" checkedy
"Remove IFO Structure Protection" checked
"Remove IFO RC Protection" checked
"Remove IFO RCE Protection" checked
"Patch M2V Timecode" checked
Click the "Stream Processing" tab and make sure "Convert PCM to WAV" is checked.
That's it! click "OK" and back to the main interface.
Next I'll describe how to rip a shared vob type disc. For this example I'll use a Mixmash disk.
Launch DVD Decrypter and from the "MODE" menu select "IFO". Put your chosen DVD into your DVD Reader, after accessing the disk you will see tick boxes appear in the "Input" tab that will say something like "VTS_01" Imaging the "VTS" as being a folder in windows explorer, click the little + at the left and it will branch out into something like "PGC 1" Imaging the PGC as being another folder 'within' the "VTS" one. Click the "PGC" and in the bottom left box you will see a list of "chapters". These are your individual tracks and as a default they should all be ticked. An average Mixmash disk has 15 tracks so you 'should' have 15 chapters showing.
GET INTO THE HABIT OF NEXT CLICKING THE "STREAM PROCESSING" TAB!
When you do this, you will see "enable stream processing" is 'unchecked'. CHECK IT Now in the little window underneath you will see your two streams, one being the video stream and one being the stereo audio stream, these will be ticked by default. MORE ON STREAMS LATER (this is important)
On the left side of the interface, click the little picture of a folder to select your destination on your hard drive. When you've done that, click the green arrow in between the pictures of a DVD and a hard drive. After a while your individual tracks will be ripped to the folder as seperate vob files. JOB DONE

With the exception of the last track on the disc will often not rip. comes out as a 0- byte file??
you have to name the tracks manually but it automatically seperates all the chapters into seperate VOB's and then you just convert, viola!

thinking of just leaving them as vob as they are playing perfect in vdj...
are there pro,s and con,s of converting to mp4 format
Posted Wed 23 Feb 11 @ 1:20 pm
Use to be that mp4 was able to be tagged for VDJ import, now you'll be able to globally tag within VDJ....
