Re: Vob file fail to convert

If nothing else works rip all the VOBs into one VOB with only the english audio. Either burn on a RW disc and use DVD Decrypter in IFO mode or try something like Smartripper that does it from hard drive.

Re: Change Aspect Ratio Only

If the devices you use read the DAR, just change it with MPEG4Modifier or MKVMerge and resave. I think black bars and the proper aspect ratio looks better than people out of proportion, myself. 8) It looks "oddly stretched" because it is. The video will fill the screen, but everyone will be tall and...

Re: combine two avi's into one?

Sometimes you can APPEND 2 avis with the same codecs with Virtual Dub and stream copy. If the audio is VBR, this does not always work, in which case try copying video and redoing audio to CBR mp3 or ac3 with MC. The Join selection may work or try VDub again.

Re: AVI/xvid/ac3-copy video re-compress audio

Try getting a bitrate calculator: A video of 1hour 44 minutes with audio of 448kbps - the audio alone is 333mb ! So dropping the audio bit rate is definitely enough to fit the video on a cd. A bitrate of 128kbps =95mb + overhead so might be the trick. Try CBR MP3 - lame or helix (if that is still an...

Re: New at this (Converting VOB to AVI, progress? Errors)

Copy Video mpeg2 to an avi container will probably not work, as you discovered. Some players read the aspect ratio in the header, some just play back from the actual dimensions = 720x480 or 720x576

Resizing with square pixels is the only way to be sure of all players.
