Windows 7: Encoding Speed

I'm not positive that it is what you are referring to, but from what I read, this is what once was called dvd-region free:

DVD Region+CSS Free - Watch & Copy Any DVD! Remove Region, CSS, ARccOS, etc.

I haven't worked with it yet, so I can't say if it solves anything or not.

EDIT: After thinking about it, I don't think that the problem has anything to do with regions, because all of my DVDs are either region 1 or region-free. In fact most, if not all of the DVDs that had problems in DVDFab were regionless.

Actually on the page that I found the link to it, it specifically said that it is the program previously known as DVD Region-Free. Apparently, DVDFab acquired it, and added a bit more to it.

Since no one has responded to this question, does that mean that it can't be done?

TBH, Im not sure exactly what you mean.


Is this noise present in the original?

If so, then the only way would perhaps edit the original in a Audio Editing Program like Audacity, or Neros Wave Editor/Soundtrax.

Then encode it to the format you prefer.

The only time Ive had mine come out with extra noise, was if the original was that way.

Yes but not with dvdfab but with dvd rebuilder if you know how to use it. Some of the encoders it comes with have all kinds of noise reduction and audio settings....
I did install DVD Rebuilder yesterday, but all that I did was to stare at the interface. Apparently, it requires dependencies for it to work, and I haven't had time to figure it out.

EDIT: I did a little tinkering with it a bit ago, but really didn't know what I was doing. I just selected one of the encoders that it apparently did have, loaded a DVD, selected the prepare button (which finished reasonaby quickly), pressed the encode button (which after indicating that it started, gave no indication of progress), after perhaps 30 minutes, I pressed the abort button, and the overall progress suddenly indicated 13%. I never got to the rebuild button, so I don't know what that would do, but since it didn't have a selection for the file format to use, nor ever asked for it, I got the feeling that it was still going to spit out a file in a form and size that I did not want.

Will this end up with a .mpg or .mkv with nothing but the main movie at some point?

I can understand the direction that you are coming from, and would consider doing as you suggest, except that I do not want to spend a lot of time trying to learn something that will not provide what I'm looking for in the first place. That is why I asked if DVD Rebuilder, if used properly, will end up with either a .mpg or .mkv file, containing only the movie, in a compact fashion? If you would answer this, I could then decide whether to toil with it or not.

EDIT: I should have added to my question the time factor...to obtain the final result, how long does it take for the average movie?

EDIT 2: Somehow, I missed your last statement, before I posted...you say that the end result is an iso. That would mean that it would require a virtual drive for it to be played...right?

I don't care how good the program performs, if it takes 8 hours to finish, I will do something else. I even consider two hours a long time, which I would only consider if necessary to deal with a problem on a certain video. I'm very glad that I asked, and that you answered my question in this regard, because I seriously doubt that I will spend the time necessary to learn the program. Thanks.

I've finished encoding the entire collection, except for 15 DVDs that had problems in both DVDFab and WinX DVD Ripper. I decided to take another whack at them, using other alternatives...I ran into some strange problems on the very first one. I tried it once more with DVDFab, but booted in W7, instead of XP, hoping there would be a difference. There was, but not one that provided a solution. Instead of DVDFab simply not starting on the disk, it encoded the first few minutes, and then stopped. Instead of ripping, I then tried to copy both the main movie, and then the entire disk with DVDFab, but that failed in a similar fashion, therefore I'm unable to use MeGUI.

Since the movie played perfectly when I first got it (using PowerDVD), I decided to try playing it again...first with VLC, but that popped the error window in the screenshot below, at about the same amount of time into the movie as with the encoders. I then ran it with Media Player, and it ran the entire movie perfectly without even a hiccup.

I don't know if the problem is some kind of protection on the disk or some kind of software problem common to the encoders and OSs that I've used? The only thing that I can think of now, is if there is some kind of recorder that would simply copy the screen and sound while playing the move...something like you do recording sound on a Creative sound card with What U Hear (It would need to be What U See And Hear)?

This problem has caused me to postpone trying the other movies, because they may have the same problem as this one.

I just tried both to rip and to copy the main movie on the only BD movie that I have, with DVDFab, and despite the fact that it appeared to proceed normally, and the program reported that it was successful, both the audio and video stuttered significantly on play back. I have no idea if this is a matter of settings or what?

I just tried that same BD in another ripper that I downloaded, and it played perfectly. Unfortunately, the evaluation function only allowed the first 5 minutes to be encoded, but at least that seemed to rule out problems with the BD player or something else.
