Baffling home movie DVDs.

Ok so, I've got these 2 dvds. As far as I can tell, they're blank, but they're actually not. They are those blank DVDs you use to burn things onto, and on each disc is a series of digitized VHS footage from home videos done in the 80s-90s-00s. Now, if I put it into any PC I have access to, it reads ...

Re: Explain TV Series Ripping.

Update! I have cracked the code. I found this web page here: https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/17364 ... oolnix-gui Though following that to the letter doesn't work, I was able to use it as a starting point and through trial and error, I was able to figure it out. Starting with disc 1 of Code Geass,...

Re: Explain TV Series Ripping.

Alot of people some years ago would refer to using Merge for TV series when looking up this issue, but no one specified how or anything. Just "You can". As for my processor, it's 2 cores at 3.6 ghz. If it's all about the processor, then I guess that explains why it's so slow, but at the sa...

Re: Explain TV Series Ripping.

Just for the hell of it, I tried re-ripping the episode with the same name in the same place. The program asked me if I wanted to overwrite, and I said yes. Normally this doesn't work for broken files, but it did for this one. Once it was done, I was able to rename and do whatever with it, and the b...

Re: Explain TV Series Ripping.

As for Explorer crashing, I have not had that problem, but it has been reported before. It depends upon what you have configured to play MKV files; Explorer is rather attached to the idea of OPENING every file to find out what it is when it takes a directory, and the wrong "handler" for M...

Re: Explain TV Series Ripping.

So, I used Handbrake to rip disc 1 of Eva. 1 episodes took about 3 hours to finish, and when it was done, the video had a bunch of horizontal lines on everything that moved. Doing a few searches, apparently Handbrake sucks at "interlaced" video files. I won't pretend to know what that mean...

Re: Explain TV Series Ripping.

I decided to pop in Neon Genesis Evangelion. I have the Platinum pack that went out of print way back, and Handbrake found each episode easily, so I'll start there. So, we know that every episode except the final one is 5 chapters in Trigun, for sure? And if the last is different, how many chapters ...

Explain TV Series Ripping.

So. I have a whole bookshelf of anime, shows, movies, etc that I've collected over time. I've decided to start going through en-mass and ripping them so I can more easily use them. I'm the kind of person who wants to directly own a series I buy, rather than paying for services like Netflix or Hulu, ...
