Question

Okay, two questions that are keeping bugging me currently, maybe somebody can help:

 

1) I have a blue ray disc of one of my films - no copy protection - and I would like to convert the contend to a "smaller" mp4 or mov format with Toast 11. Is that possible and how? Currently Toast 11 pro only allows me to copy.

 

2) Toast tells me it wants to update, loads the update, starts installing but then tells me it is not able to proceed to the end. Any idea what I shall do?

 

Thank you in advance....

Somewhere in the Blu-ray disc's folders is a mts video file. Find it and drag it to the Toast Convert window.

Go to the Roxio Software Updates page and download the latest Toast 11 update. It includes everything that is in the Toast standard folder so you can use it to replace your existing Toast 11 folder. It also includes an update to Spin Doctor.

Done that, Toast refuses to process, asks me for the right codec (VC-1) - so it seems that there is the problem. See if it will get better with the new download.

had downloaded today when purchasing Toast 11 and thought it was the newest version. Will see if I can get through by downloading the way you described.

Should be in something like:

 

<Disk> -> BDMV -> STREAM -> 0000x.m2ts

 

where x is >= 1, so may be multiple files. I tried to start conversion of one of my BR .m2ts files to mp4 and seems to start OK (using Toast 11.0.3 beta). DIdn't get error after started. I stopped conversion after that so don't know if would have completed OK. Hope this helps.

I find the .m2ts stream - no problem - but it still refuses to load and/or convert it. Maybe it's the missing (?) vc-1 codec. And I have no idea how to get that one. Maybe I try the beta-version. Thanx for the tip.

Blu-ray supports three video codecs (H.264, MPEG-2, VC-1), of which two are supported by Toast (H.264, MPEG-2).

 

It is said that Flip4Mac supports VC-1 (Windows Media 9 Advanced Profile), but I don't think the free player version will allow conversions. Perhaps Flip4Mac Player Pro does, but I have no experience with that, nor how well it behaves as a QuickTime component for HD video in Toast.

Even the pro-version of Flip4Mac (just bought it because I am under a bit of pressure) allows only for about 30 seconds of conversion - it seems to have issues working with Toast or there is something wrong with the setup. This really is annoying with an otherwise very nice program like Toast.

I thought the 30 sec (or half the duration of the clip, whichever comes first) was a limit of an unregistered Flip4Mac. Did you enter the serial number in the Prefs pane? (Just checking...)

Yes, entered that. And it's distinctively less than 30 seconds that get's transcoded. And my "clip" is 88:30 minutes. I will check with the guys who produced the Bluray if they have any idea. It's a codec jungle out there, it seems.... ;-)

Check with the Flip4Mac folks, too. They may have some insight.
