Jumps / Gaps in .m4v converted from VIDEO_TS folder

Question

Using VIDEO_TS folders that I have burned to DVDs that work great, converting to Apple TV or iPhone formats results in video with consistent, short, irritating skips or gaps in the video and audio. Anyone having success converting VIDEO_TS folders to Apple TV or iPhone or is Toast 10.0.6 broken? [mac os x 10.6.2; toast titanium 10.0.6]

Just guessing but this may be due to Toast not handling time-code breaks properly in the source DVD. These can be a problem for DVDs recorded in video mode on standalone DVD recorders or DVD camcorders.

 

Here are a couple things to try:

 

One is to use the Toast Media Browser to extract the video from the VIDEO_TS folder. Choose DVD with the top button of the Media Browser and select the VIDEO_TS folder. Double-click on the folder's description to see the individual video titles (you can double-click on a title to see chapters within a title). Now drag what you want to the convert window with Video Files selected as the format. Now do the conversion to see if that makes a better version.

 

If the problem remains then you may need to use the application MPEG Streamclip to repair timecode breaks. MPEG Streamclip is freeware but requires Apple's $20 QuickTime MPEG2 Playback Component. After repairing the breaks in Streamclip choose Convert to MPEG in the File menu. Use that file in Toast.

The VIDEO_TS folder is encryption free video from a commercial concert DVD that I have, not from a DVD recorder or camcorder. I tried what you suggested as far as dragging a chapter from Media Browser to Convert / Video Files and then converted it. Interestingly, there was no audio - seemingly for the same reason that I cannot rip the audio successfully in Popcorn. See other post, which you (tsantee) kindly replied to - http://forums.support.roxio.com/index.php?showtopic=61294

 

I clicked the "Edit" button on the chapter in the Video Files pane and picked a Dolby Digital audio track instead of the DTS 5.1 track and converted it again. The sound is back but so are the gaps - exactly the same as when I converted the entire VIDEO_TS folder. It is puzzling why Toast picks up the non-DTS track in the VIDEO_TS folders convert dialog but not in the Video Files nor in Popcorn.

 

Any other thoughts?
