Problems With Converting Video_Ts Files

Question

A friend gave me some DVD-R mini discs to rip the video files off of. Each of the discs have several chapters because they were

recorded on a camcorder that uses the mini DVD-Rs.

 

This size disc will not work in my MBP. So I tried this:

 

-Put the disc into a windows laptop

-Put the VIDEO_TS folder on a jump drive then transfered it to my MBP

-Used Toast 11 to convert the folder into a Quicktime Movie

 

After the conversion is complete all I get is a short 20 second clip of the video I should have gotten.

 

So I tried this:

 

-Used Toast 11 to burn the VIDEO_TS folder to a regular DVD-R

-The DVDs worked, I could open them up in the video player, could view the chapters and play each of them.

-Tried to rip the video off of the new dvd and had the same results as before, just got the short 20 second clip again.

 

How can I rip all of the chapters off of these DVDs, or convert the VIDEO_TS folders so I get the whole video?

Select Video Files as the format in the Convert window. There's now a couple of ways to do the next step. The one I recommend is to insert the DVD and click the Video tab in the Toast Media Browser. Click and hold on the button that reads iMovie & Movies and scroll down to "DVD". There you'll see individual titles on the DVD. If you select a title you will get thumbnails of individual chapters. The titles and chapters can be previewed by clicking the arrow button at the bottom of the browser. Select any titles or chapters you want to convert and click the + button or drag them to the main window.

 

What you'll see next is a window that lets you customize your selection. If you selected individual chapters in the media browser they should already be listed as individual chapters in this window and all you need to do is click okay to move everything into the main window. All that is left to do then is give the items useful names and click the Save button.

Same problem here. Able to select chapters I want to convert but when attempting to put them in the main window Toast crashes!

Please provide more details. Is this from a DVD or a VIDEO_TS folder on the hard drive? Did you drag chapters from the Media Browser? Which OS are you using?

I was attempting to convert from a DVD, dragging chapters from the Media Browser. I did manage to do this from the 'Data' tab in the Media Browser and locating the Video-TS folder on the DVD though I then encountered the breaks in timecode which resulted in only 20 secs being converted. I used MPEG Streamclip to fix timecode (having to purchase the Apple Quicktime MPEG-2 Playback component) and converted the DVD through MPEG Streamclip! Am sure like myself, many users see Toast as a one-stop solution for burning and conversion and I don't understand why the timecode fix isn't part of Toast - especially as its apparent many users are having the same problem. Having to use 3rd party software and purchase additional components to fix this is not what I would expect to do given the relatively high cost of purchasing Toast - which I have been using for many years now!! Hopefully this will be a future upgrade.

The timecode issue has long been a problem for Toast with DVDs created by standalone DVD recorders. My standalone recorder has the option of burning VR=mode (rather than Video mode) to DVD-RW media. When I do this and use the DVD setting in the Toast Media Browser to extract the video from the disc there are no timecode breaks. In addition, I don't have to finalize the disc. However, there are no chapters when doing it that way. I need to use Toast 11's new edit window to mark segments as different titles which is just as useful to me as is transferring chapters.
