So I'm using the program "Handbrake" for DVD ripping. I did a test on my nonanamorphic SNAKE EYES DVD and it made it anamorphic. Very cool. Hope I have a DVD burner on this MacBook of mine. I'm gonna use a flash drive and test it on my HDTV.

Hell, I may do this for my theatrical version Star Wars DVDs.

That's what I did with STAR WARS as well, I love that Handbreak also keeps the chapter breaks intact.

I noticed that. I think my SNAKE EYES has 5.1. This is fantastic!

Handbrake is awesome, especially if you've gone Apple-centric for you home/portable entertainment.

Just a word of caution. When you're taking a non-anamorphic DVD and scaling it up, you're not gaining any new detail. Using Handbrake also means you're re-compressing everything, which will take varying degrees of forever depending on how fast your computer is.

If you just want to watch non-anamorphic DVD's in widescreen on your TV, just buy an HDMI cable for your laptop and fire up VLC. Easier and faster.

I have a Blu-ray player with a "zoom" feature so I can just literally zoom in and have the image fit the screen properly. I actually have two Blu-ray players, and only the older, non-WiFi one has that. The other will just stretch a nonanamorphic picture and look like shit.

As for no new detail, yeah I know. I tested SNAKE EYES on my HDTV and it looks passable until a Blu-ray comes out. The Star Wars movies look acceptible. I'll take a softer Sebastian Shaw over a razor-sharp Hayden Christensen any f-ing day.

I suppose it would depend on how good your scaler on your TV/Blu Ray player is. Some are better than others. I swear the software on my computer does a better job at enlarging a video image than 90% of the TV's I've seen.

I'm trying to get it to do a larger size file. It comes out 636x274

After testing out STAR WARS, I think it looks better when I zimply zoom in with my older Blu-ray player. Still, SNAKE EYES looks pretty good. And this Handbreak thing has some nice applications.

Ya know what I can do now? I can go to my local video place http://www.wandwvideo.com/ and rent their rare and out of print titles so I can have my own copies. Frankenheimer's SECONDS shall be mine. Hopefully I can get the commentary on it too. Hmmm.

And THE MAGNIFICENT AMBERSONS. Yay!

Pardon me, I'm new to this ripping stuff.

I'm curious, why are you ripping DVDs? Aren't Blu-Ray rips better? Especially if done around 1920x800 specs or 1280x544 thereabouts. These are the type that were ripped en masse and stored on filehosts before the FEDS busted Megaupload and scared the shit out of everyone.

Still, an HD rip looks good on a widescreen TV even at 10%-20% the original file size.

My Mac doesn't read Blu-rays. And I only need to rip some titles for specific reasons. I have no need to rip Blus at the moment.

Ripping Blu Rays is a bitch on a Mac. Not to mention the additional investment in a Blu Ray drive.

It ain't worth it for me. I have no need to rip Blu-rays. Well, not yet. If that store I linked to had some hard to find and expensive Blu-rays... Oh well.

There are only a few reasons to rip/back up movies anyways:

-To watch them while traveling and not have to carry a massive DVD wallet with you
-The creation of a home media server so you can access any video anywhere in your house
-Back ups in case of some asshole breaking your discs
-Copying as many discs as possible before rental stores/Netflix catches on

I kinda like the flexibility of backing up your optical discs and then creating a video file for portable use. The lack of doing that with Blu Rays in my current setup is the only real hurdle I have with the format. Buying a BD player is easy, getting the hardware to back them up is hard.

I've been building a collection for my home media box (the Dvico TVIX HD), most are straight rips using the PC prog 'AnyDVD HD' which sorts region coding and more. Recently I have been remuxing the dvds (with tsmuxer) to straight .m2ts files as it makes them cross compaitble with my PS3 and Panasonic TV (with its built in media server function.

What I would like is a program than splits dvd .vobs into their constituent episodes so I can make them individual .m2ts file......anyone any recommendations?

Sharky wanted to see some goofy Schifrin music put to CASINO ROYALE. Well, iMovie is being a pain in the ass, so this is the best I can do right now without spending undue time trying to figure out the program.

It cuts out when they're on the crane. Maybe I'll give it another try sometime. Probably not. It's kinda funny at 1:11. And it works pretty well at 2:04. All in all, it turns Bond into a 70's cop show.

Question. I'm ripping myself a copy of SECONDS (which is OOP and I rented), but I also want the Frankenheimer commentary. Can I do another pass on a different VOB file to get a different audio?

EON seems to be very lax on Bond fan videos though, so I don't think you'll get in any trouble. I have five Bond related videos uploaded and I never got a notice or anything.

Deleted it. Jesus. Maybe because it had "royale" in the title? How could MGM have seen it if it's fecking private? Unless EON is trolling these forums. tongue
