View Full Version : mencoder wont encode entire dvd

11th August 2008, 03:54 AM
I typically use the following command to convert my dvd's to an avi format playable on my mp3 player. Its worked a dozen times before,
but with the movie V for Vendetta it only encodes the first two chapters (about 9 minutes). The dvd plays fine both on the PC and home dvd player.
mencoder dvd://1 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=512:vhq:keyint=250:threads=1 :vpass=1 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=128 -ffourcc XVID -vf scale=320:-2,crop=320:240,expand=320:240 -o OUTFILE.avi
Any suggestions?

thanks, paul

mencoder dvd://1
Seems to me that you're instructing it to rip precisely the first and only the first title from the disk. Though this may be correct it some cases, are you sure that its correct in this case?

Thanks for the reply. According to lsdvd title 1 is the main movie with 33 chapters.
