How come I can't see a 'Q scale' in my options? Would it be called something else?

Angry Instant complete no Video

i have successfully completed the conversion of two dvds and have taken single episodes from a dvd also. So i noe the basics but recently i riped pirates of the caribbean: dead mans chest off a dvd and went to transcode it and it didn't work!! i tried seting the profile up to various settings to adjust for the widescreen but that didnt work.

When i click transcode it just completes instantly and then when i go to the file where it should be its 0bytes and wont play so where did i make my mistake in the dvd decyrpting or transcoding?

also im fairly sure i got the right file because it can play on my computer as a MPEG file thats is 6392098KB

That is why I have created this thread.

Those who use Videora and DVD Decrypter and are successful with them, PLEASE POST YOUR SUCCESSFUL AUDIO/VIDEO BITRATE COMBINATIONS HERE for the good of the forum! It will save a lot of threads and a lot of frustrated people.

Thank you!

EDIT: Here is the definitive post by Bodacious. Thanks for all the time you spent pulling this together.

Tip: If your video/audio is out of sync, try typing "-async 1" into the custom FFMPEG section on the setup screen. (Bodacious)

Even though we have a pretty comprehensive list, if you have any questions or more combinations, please feel free to post them here.

I must note that when I choose 2200kbps as the average bitrate for A-VBR i was basing this on a FQ-VBR (Quality 3) encoding of the chapter in Star Wars Episode I in which Obi Wan and Darth Maul fight and the Chapter in Star Wars Episode III just after the title scroll during the space battle and lightsaber fight against the droids in the hanger bay. Both scenes I'm sure require more detail than most and so basing my average bitrate for A-VBR on these tests would likely mean that 2200kbps would be higher than necessary for a entire film which wouldn't be full of action scenes and fast motion. A bitrate of 2000kbs for the average bitrate in A-VBR would most likely be more than acceptable

this has nothing to do with bitrates. just manually type in the framerate as 30 fps instead of 29.97. your audio and video will sync perfectly

No harm would be done at all to the ipod itself.

Yes, you will find some videos will have differing volumes to one another. You can edit the volume in two ways. Either encode the files all the same and then in iTunes right click on the video(s) in question and in their properties alter the volume there. Or, as you noted, alter it in videora.

The problem starts when you shove up the volume too much, you might end up making the signal louder than the pre-amp of the ipod (and likely anything else it's being played on) can handle, and so you will end up with a clipped signal which will be distorted no matter what volume you set the iPod or computer to play back at. So all in all take care when adjusting the volume

As a general note there have been many newer versions of Videora since 0.91 or whatever it was. I think the latest is 2.09. Go to the videora homepage and download the latest iPod converter. For people who just want to set up conversions easily there is a new system for that. For people who want to modify the settings then there are also ways to edit like previously. It is layed out in a different way but all the tools you need are still there, and if you start by editing one of the "advanced" profiles to make a custom one then, whilst encoding time will be slower, the quality will be even higher.

For anamorphic video in videora, I set:

top crop = 54
bottom crop = 56
add " -aspect 16:9"
MPEG4 video
Audio = 160
Volume = 200%
Bitrate = 1024
Size = 320x240

These settings are for making 4:3 video into 16x9 anamorphic (basically, removing the letterboxing and just cropping it)

If you have a DVD file that's already in 16x9, remove the crops.

(aspect 16:9 forces the video to be a 16x9 video in the 4x3 size -- it will play the video in a "squashed" format). If you use H264 instead, you have to use "-aspect 4:3" so that the resulting file plays back in a 4:3 ratio.

Also, for VOB files where it ends early or goes on forever, use VideoRedo and do a full remux of the video. The issue with that is the timestamps in the VOB file. If the file's timestamps go by chapter, it will show a length of 10 minutes or so for a full movie. If it goes by layer, it will show a length of 45 minutes or so. Remuxing it with VideoRedo helps to work around this.

Can anyone suggest settings for small filesize but with watchable quality on an iPod?

For example I have had episodes of family guy (20mins) at 30mb. Ideal size and the quality is very watchable.

I have repeatedly tried to rip The Dark Knight to my ipod (120 GB) with no good results. Audio keeps out of sync always. It is widescreen and I have tried video 1200 bitrate/ audio 160 bitrate. Also I have used 192, 128 for audio bitrate but they all seem to produce the same quality video with the same 1-sec out of sync error.

Any tips or comments, much appreciated.

P.S. I currently use something other than videora.

I will admit I did not read this whole thread.... what I found was that for windows format SUPER works the best. Going from AVI to ipod/appleTV format all you need to do is check framrate of the file you are converting and make sure it is set to convert at the same framerate. the audio should be synced properly. I will add i did not like videora at all.
