VIDEO_TS TO DV


JaimeMayol

Question

A couple of years ago I converted a vhs to DVD. Back then I believe I had Toast 6. I was able to convert the video_ts to DV with no problem. Toast 8 seems to have problems with this kind of Video_ts. Toast 8 works fine with original with original non-copy protected DVDs. Please advice.

 

 

Thanks;

Nope it didn't work. It should work just by dragging it to Toast. Like I said before this Video_ts is from VHS to DVD conversion. Toast 8 works fine with any other video_ts as long as the DVD is not copy protected. For instance Video_ts from VHS to DVD conversion it works great with the DVD from Video_TS feature in Toast 8, I even can see the preview. Toast 6 the export to DV works great because it reads the actual time of the Video_TS file. It most be a bug in 7 or 8. Thanks anyways.

Toast 7 and 8 are not designed to accept dragging VIDEO_TS folders directly to the Video window unless you were trying to burn a copy of the VIDEO_TS to DVD. If you want access to the MPEG files within the VIDEO_TS folder you must first extract them using the Media Browser as I stated previously.

 

There can be titles that work when dragging a VIDEO_TS directly to the Video window but most often it doesn't work. Oftentimes you get only part of the video; maybe just a few seconds.

Got both. Never heard Streamclip until now. I'm testing it right now. The great thing is that it can fix the timecode like you said and I can export to any format I want. Also can choose the size and resolution and it's free.

Google for MPEG Streamclip and you'll find it. You also can find it using Versiontracker.com. It is free but requires Apple's Quicktime MPEG 2 Component that you buy as a download from the Apple Store for $20.

 

The problem you describe in the second post strongly suggests the time code break issue which Streamclip will fix. Then choose Convert to MPEG from Streamclip's File menu. There is no re-encoding so the video quality is unchanged. Drag that exported MPEG to Toast's Video window with DVD video selected as the format.

Well at least the dragging worked with two other DVDs which had more than one video. But I did try the way you mention and didn't work. I guess because it's a copy from a vhs I guess it most have something that it doesn't read properly. It's a shame though that they don't have like in Toast 6. Maybe in future update of Toast 8 this matter will be fix.

When you say it didn't work to use the Media Browser, what happened (or didn't happen). I've used the Media Browser to extract MPEGs from all kinds of sources.

 

Was the source recorded by a standalone DVD recorder? (I have one of those, too). Those can have problems with frequent time code breaks. When those are present I use MPEG Streamclip to extract the MPEG instead of Toast. MPEG Streamclip has a command called Fix Timecode Breaks. Doing that before saving the MPEG makes a huge difference.

I just downloaded Toast 6 and is working great. I also downloaded Toast 7. So the problem is since Toast 7. The problem with Toast 7 and 8 is that it wont read the video_ts file properly. Example if the video has 34 minutes it will read as it has 20 seconds and it will exported as so. It won't export the whole file. But the DVD from Video_TS in Toast 8 and 7 (I imagine since I didn't try this with 7) reads it with no problem.

The way to do this in Toast 7 and 8 is to place the VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop or in the movies folder (but not inside any other folder). Select DVD with the top button of the Toast Media Browser. In a couple seconds a file will appear in the lower window. Use the lower button to go to either the title or chapter level. Select the title or chapter you want to convert to DV and add it to the Video window (with DVD video selected as the format). Toast extracts the MPEG from the VIDEO_TS and writes it to the Converted Items folder. When the extraction is complete you select the title in the Video window and choose Export.

Don't know what recorder since the place I went to has the equipment in a second floor and I can't go up. But probably this is what they use. The thing is Toast 6 reads it with no problems. But like I said before if it's an orginal non-copy protected DVD Toast 8 reads it with no problem. I hope Roxio realizes this and if it's a bug fix it. Tell where can I get Streamclip?
