Toast Errors in Popcorn?

Question

I recently purchased Toast and unfortunately it's not functioning as I'd hoped. Whenever I try to export Video_TS file to an iPod friendly format I get a -9011 Result Error. This was supposedly fixed in

8.0.3 but according to this thread in the Toast forum, the bug still exists. I'm competent with mac/techno issues to a degree, but solving this issue reaches beyond my understanding (Not to mention the fact that I bought Toast in order to simplify the process rather than complicate it).

 

So, anyway, I have two questions:

 

1) Does Popcorn have this same problem (the -9011 error)?

 

and

 

2) If not, should I save $50 by "downgrading" to Popcorn? I primary want to burn Video-TS files to DVDs and export my own DVDs to an iPod format, so is there any benefit to having Toast in this situation?

 

Thanks for any input!

What is the source for the VIDEO_TS folder (is it a ripped movie?) and what kind of Mac & OS are you using? Maybe I can test to see if this is happening for me with either Toast or Popcorn 3 with a similar source.

 

As far as "downgrading" I prefer to use Popcorn for any of the things it does. If you have time to evaluate both I suggest getting Popcorn 3 and then decide which one to keep and which one to get your refund.

I just did a test with both Popcorn 3.0.2 and Toast 8.0.3 on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.5.1. I chose the iPod export for titles from a VIDEO_TS folder ripped from a concert DVD that had PCM audio. Both worked perfectly. In Toast 8.0.1 I would have received the -9011 error.

 

By the way, it is easier to export to different formats from a VIDEO_TS folder using Popcorn 3 than it is using Toast 8. Popcorn 3 allows exporting after simply dragging the VIDEO_TS folder into the main window (after choosing "VIDEO_TS Folders" in the Player section). Toast 8 requires placing the VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop, selecting it in the Media Browser and extracting the desired titles as MPEG files into the Video window with DVD-video selected as the format before the titles can be exported to other formats.

Thanks so much for the advice! Maybe I should go ahead and test Popcorn out--I just got Toast yesterday so I'm well within my 30-day time limit.

 

Meanwhile, I have been able to export a few folders without incident (BTW-I acquired the VIDEO_TS files via MTR and I'm running Tiger on my MacBook). Out of curiosity, what's the general percentage of files that have the PCM audio problem? because if it's infrequent I might be less bothered by the whole thing. I just really want to consolidate all of these functions into a single program (other than MTR) because right now I've got handbrake, isquint and a few other random goodies taking up space on my HD along with iDVD and I'd rather just keep it simple.

 

 

:) Thanks again!

PCM audio is very uncommon in commercial video DVDs. It is present on a few music concert DVDs because PCM audio is uncompressed so it may sound better. Also, iDVD only creates video DVDs with PCM audio so you can encounter this format with home-made discs. As I noted, this isn't appearing as a problem for me with either Popcorn 3.0.2 or Toast 8.0.3.

 

When you used Toast with the VIDEO_TS folder did you extract the titles using the Media browser before trying to convert them to iPod format?

Yes, I did extract using the Media Browser. I've actually been able to export a few new VIDEO_TS folders to iPod format since yesterday, but there is a new and interesting development: I'm still getting an error on some exports but now the result code is -208 instead of -9011. Strange, n'est pas?

When ripping a DVD with popcorn to an ipod, popcorn gives the error "couldn't complete the last command because of a mac error. result=9011." Same error you get in Toast.

 

I've actually extrated the video from DVD many times with no problem.

 

But now a week later I get the error (even on some of the discs that have previously been succesful).

 

Miraculously after updating Quicktime it worked again with no errors but then I exported some shows to iPod from eyeTV and I'm back to Popcorn errors.

 

I'm using a Powerbook G4 1GHz 768 MB DDR SDRAM OS X 10.4.11 and use an Elgato Turbo.264 (vers 1.2 build 262) Popcorn Vers 3.02.
