No Audio when extracting video from a folder set


Michael_C

Question

I have been trying to extract a vido from a DVD (folder set), and when I do, the audio fails to come accross correctly - When I play the video clip there is no audio. I drag the VIDEO_TS.IFO file from the folder set into Videowave 9.

 

Any idea on what might be the problem?

Thanks in advance,

Michael

Maybe I've misunderstood the problem, but I tried the following, with a nonprotected DVD (a freebie of Supersize me from my newspaper :-).

I put the DVD in my DVD player, opened Videowave, clicked Add photo/video, navigated to the DVD drive, selected the main VOB file VIDEO_TS.VOB,clicked open. A small window opened asking me what I wanted to import, the main movie or a trailer (also on the DVD). I chose the trailer. It took a minute or two, but it loaded, the file name shown in VideoWave was VIDEO_TS.IFO. It previewed but a bit choppy, but had both video and audio. I also exported it as a file (I just chose the top option, 3GP MPEG4/AMR. It rendered fine the file plays both video and sound correctly. Also, in Videowave opening the folder containing the rendered file, I right clicked, extract Audio, also went OK.

I then copied the DVD (in Windows Explorer) to the hard drive, repeated using the folder on the hard drive with same successful result (in fact a bit better as the preview was smooth).

 

Maybe the problem lies in your statement that you 'dragged the file' into Videowave, or is that your way of saying you clicked add Photo/Video?

Clicking on the Video tab should give you a dropdown box to pick the hardware you are capturing from. If it is a camcorder, connected to your computer via firewire, it should show up.

 

If I put a video DVD in my drive, I get the same result that you do. It reverts back to the original message. I am not sure why, but I suspect it is because EMC 9 can import the .vob files, directly into VideoWave, from the hard drive. Therefore, no capture is needed, from the DVD.

Thanks for the confirmation of getting the same results. I've seen a few behavioral problems here and there, and didn't know if it was another one of those, or operator error.

It should be the VOB files, not the IFO file. If you rename the vob file to mpg file, are you able to add that to VW?

I changed the extension to MPG as you suggested, but when I try to drag/drop it doesn't work. When I add via Videwave 9 (e.g., "Add Photo/Video" from the "Production" menu), I get the following dilalog:

"The files you selected contain missing or invalid video streams, and have not been added.

 

I tried the same process with a video I created - e.g, changed VOB to MPG, and dragged iit nto a Videowave production. I can drag it, but I don't get audio with that selection either - even though it was one from a video created using videowave, and MYDVD to create the folder set.

 

I have had more success dragging the IFO file. Generally, when I drag the IFO file both audio and video are added, but when I drag the IFO file from a DVD I didn't create the video is added, but the audio doesn't come across.

 

Is there a configuration setting that can exclude the audio? Any other thoughts?

Depending on what exactly was the source of you DVD folder set, there may be more than one audio stream present.

 

This will work but may be a PITA.

 

Burn your DVD folder set to a DVD (I would use a re-writable so I can use it again)

 

Use the Capture option. This will allow you to capture titles, chapters, and the different audio streams if they exist assuming that multiple audio streams is your problem to begin with.

 

I have never been able to figure out how to capture a DVD file set from a hard drive, maybe it doesn't exist.

Capturing from the hard drive was eliminated after version 7.5. Why in the world it was, is beyond me.

I can't successfully select the DVD drive from within Medai Import or Capture/Import (from within Videowave). When I select the DVD drive from the drop down, The dialog window clears, and the same text is re-displayed. If I select the Audio tab, I can select the DVD player, and will get a list of all the movie segments on the dvd - at which point, I can select which ones to import.

Is there a setting that needs to be changed to allow the same type of operation from within the Video tab?

You can try Disc Copier to create an mpg out of the DVD video folder set. The steps are the same one as listed in this post but instead of ISO, you use the video folder as the source.

Thank you - this gives good results.

I'm still interested in figuring out why I'm not able to get list of titles when trying the Capture option (earlier post) - if anyone else has any ideas.

 

Thanks again for tutorial on Disc Copier
