Okay, I'm not sure on how to explain this. For example: Let's just say that I want to take JUST "Kingyo Hanabi" from Ai Otsuka's Live DVD and transfer it onto my computer. How do I do that? Do I need a program? Confused

Ripping stuff from DVD can be very troublesome due to DVD protection, especially those coming from avex. I'll give you a brief idea how can it be done, but it is quite tiring and I have lots of problem myself when I tried to rip from DVD last time. Tongue

My method might not be the best but at least it works:
1. Use DVD Shrink to rip the whole DVD onto your HDD
2. Open the desired .vob file (now in your HDD) with VirtualDub
3. Select the range of video you would like to "cut" out
4. Choose the encoding setting such as bitrate and codec (you need encoder from K-Lite Mega Codec Pack, see Media Guide)
5. Start ripping and wait till it finish, can take up to hours depending on your comp speed

To know precisely what range you would like to cut out, you need tools such as Media Player Classic that has the "Go To..." feature, which you can input the precise time and it will jump straight to that frame. Once you figure out the precise starting and ending time of the frame you want to cut out, input them to your VirtualDub. Smile

Good luck! I know it's not very simple. Tongue

Thanks. However this DVD is Japanese. Should I use my English laptop or Japanese laptop?

It doesn't matter. If you've been using your Japanese laptop to open Japanese DVD, I would say go with the Japanese one because DVD drive usually comes with regions, and you can only change the region code 5 times.

No. I live in the U.S, but was orginally from Japan. ^^
My dad bought a regional DVD in Japan, I think...I'm not sure,
It can play both English and Japanese DVD's.

OK, thanks eyn for your help. I couldnt' find a good program to use. Everyone says to use DVD Decryptor, but every time the ripped vobs would play incorrectly. Now DVDShrink rips perfectly.

Well, now i need help with the next step. How do i make the vob into an .avi file?

Thanks,
Rokit

To make vob into avi files, you need VirtualDub-MPEG2. VirtualDub is a simple yet powerful video editing software, as long as you have those encoder installed into your computer. I suggest you install the latest K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and pick full installation if you have plenty of space to spare and doesn't have enough knowledge to pick only the ones you need.

I'll teach you how to encode into x264 for now, it's the best codec available right now that offers smallest size for maximum quality:
  1. Open the .vob file you want to convert
  2. Video > Fast recompress
  3. Video > Compression > x264 - H264/AVC encoder > Configure
  4. Multipass - First Pass; Target Bitrate: 1600
  5. Audio > Full Processing Mode
  6. Audio > Compression > Lame MP3 > 192kbps CBR
  7. File > Save as AVI...
  8. Pick a name, check "Don't run this job now; add it to job control so I can run in batch mode"
  9. Video > Compression >x264 - H264/AVC encoder > Configure
  10. Multipass > Nth Pass; Target Bitrate: 1600
  11. File > Save as AVI...
  12. Pick a name, check "Don't run this job now; add it to job control so I can run in batch mode"
  13. File > Job control... > Start
  14. Once it finished, your file is ready!
Good luck! Giggle

Thanks for your help.

I did all the steps you asked, and the final file came down to:

size: 6.90 MB
length: 4.55
bitrate: 192kbps
Res: 720x480

That's impossible. It can't be that low in file size, shoudlnt' it be around 80MB or so? The file doesn't open so im' not sure. The only step i didn't do, is the audio compression since i can't find on the list Lame mp3.

I selected AC-3 ACM Codec and 192 kbps through that.

I downloaded the k lite package too. Also, through the installationg process, it made me uninstall quicktime and divx package, is that necessary? Now the video files on this computer are default to the old version of windows media player. How do i change that?

I'm not sure what's wrong with the 6.9mb file you got, it should be at least 50mb or above. It doesn't matter if you're using AC3, the filesize shouldn't change much.

I suggest you uninstall every single codec you have installed before installing the K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. The more codec in your computer the more likely they will interfere with each other, so uninstall everything else and install a fresh clean K-Lite Mega Codec Pack. During the installation it will ask if you want to associate certain filetype to Media Player Classic, you can do the changes there.

Ok, I re-installed the programs. Also, i just realized that I left step 9-11 out because it thought you accedently repeated. but seeing as the video compression changed to "nth" instead of "first pass," it worked correctly this time.

I have one thing to say:

It squishes the original aspect ratio. The original video presintation is at:
960 x 536, and it encodes it at 720 x 480. That's almost close but the widths are sucked in squeezing the image. How do i fix this?

Thanks for your help.

It might be the problem of x264 codec, some codec only supports certain aspect ratio, but I'm not sure if this is the reason why it doesn't work for you. You might want to try encode in XviD MPEG-4 Codec, the procedure is almost the same, set the bitrate and encode, first time in first pass mode while the 2nd time in 2nd pass mode. Good luck!

Hey,

I have a question now about viewing the videos with the selected options you listed. I'm on my computer now, not the computer i used to rip. The videos i ripped from the other computer don't work on my computer. It's missing the Intel ITU H.264 (H264) codec, but i tried looking for it and can't find it. Any suggestions?

codec packs...

I think most people will recommend K-Lite Codec Pack. Specifically for h264 i used Combined Community Codec Pack.

Sorry I don't have the links for these, but you can google them.

I have a question similar to the topic, so I didn't wanna start a new thread. Smile
Ok, my question...
I have some DVDs, (The Ai am BEST one, Yumekui, etc.) and I'd like to rip the PVs from these into my laptop, and finally into my iPod. I already have a program that can change the videos into a format iPod can read, I just need a way of getting the PVs off the desk and into the laptop. Confused Should I use the program eyn linked to in his first post, (second in the thread) or is there a different one I should use? Confused Any help would be appreciated, thanks. Smile
