Missing Chapters from Toast 8


JT7

Question

I am working with VOB files. I use MPEG Streamclip to fix the time code breaks and then Convert to MPEG with MP2 audio. When I watch the MPEGs in Quicktime player they run fine but when I burn them and play them in my DVD player (and on my Mac) some of the chapters are missing. Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Toast doesn't accept VOBs unless they are inside a VIDEO_TS folder. If they are you place the VIDEO_TS on the desktop or inside your Movies folder and choose DVD with the top button of the Browser to access the content. Toast extracts the MPEG from the VIDEO_TS when you drag the titles from the Browser to the Video window.

 

Toast 8 accepted the VOB files just fine. I will have to wait and see if the time codes breaks remain. Thanks

Fixing time code breaks will mess up the chapter markers. Have you tried adding the tracks from the VIDEO_TS folder to Toast using the Media Browser instead of going through Streamclip. I know Toast works with video DVDs I record with my Pioneer standalone recorder that have a big problem with timecode breaks, yet Toast seems to work fine with those and keeps the chapter markers.

 

Also, just choose Convert to MPEG in Streamclip's File menu rather than saving as separate video and audio. That might also retain the chapter markers because it doesn't demux the audio and video before arriving in Toast.

I have tried using the media browser, but when I do it tells me that a VOB, that is 1 hour, is only 3 minutes long. Will toast fix the time code breaks and burn correctly? Thanks

If the VOBs are not in a VIDEO_TS folder then your decision to use Streamclip makes sense. Also, there are times when the timecode breaks do cause problems for Toast. So try my other suggestion to choose Convert to MPEG from the Streamclip File menu after fixing the timecode breaks so you keep the video and audio together in on file.
