Import A Dvd To Make Youtube Files-From It


Henrik Simonsen
 Share

Question

Hi

I'm a total beginner using Toast 11 for what my topic title says.

I've ripped the dvd, I used the copy section, is that the way to do rip even though I do not intend to make a copy, just YouTube-files of some of the music?

But I cannot locate the file on the computer, where is it stored?

Therefore I used the dvd-disc but I think it stumbles and is not fast to work with, but ok, at least I could manage to get it imported to the Toast 11 window.

 

So won't it be a better idea to locate the ripped dvd and use that instead of the disc?

 

Regards

 

Henrik

Choose the Convert window when you want to convert videos for upload to YouTube. Once there you have many options which I'll explain. This all presumes the source is unencrypted.

 

Option 1: Use the DVD Disc setting and insert the source DVD. If you click Options after the disc is recognized by Toast you can select specific titles on the DVD that you want to send to YouTube. When you're ready click the Convert button and choose YouTube from the "Device" list.

 

Option 2: Same thing except use VIDEO_TS as the setting in the Convert window. In this case drag in a VIDEO_TS folder from an inserted DVD or one that has been ripped to hard drive.

 

Option 3: Choose Video Files as the format in the Convert window. This option is best when you want to upload a clip from a DVD title rather than an entire title. Insert the DVD, mount a DVD disc image or place a VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop or in the Movies folder. Go to the Toast Media Browser and click the Video tab. In the browser window you'll see DVD. Select it and you should see the individual titles that are on the DVD. Select one and click the + button or drag it to the main Toast window. In a few seconds a new window appears giving you the opportunity to select a specific start and end point (or the entire video). When you add this to the main Toast window you're ready to click the Convert button.

 

If you used the Copy window to save a disc image from the DVD it should appear as a .toast file somewhere. They show up in my Documents folder but it may be somewhere else.

ok, I made a Video_TS folder on my desktop, made a clip from that, tried to connect to Youtube. But when the login window to YT opended it would not accept username/password and I can't figure out why and I can't find any help for that on the Youtube page.

So I decided to make a mpeg-4 file and upload that from the Youtube homepage but Toast will not convert the clip "because of an error". No further description of the error. I tried some other formats too, Quicktime, same result.

Did you select the VIDEO_TS folder setting in the Convert window or did you choose the Video Files setting? It needs to be the VIDEO_TS folder setting. You also can still do the third option which is to have the VIDEO_TS folder on the desktop (or in the Movies folder) and use the Toast Media Browser to access the video. In this case you do want the Video Files setting. It may work where the other did not.

 

As for the error, I have seen Toast problems with DVDs ripped with RipIt. I also don't know why there was a problem logging into YouTube from Toast. Sorry this is being so troublesome.

Ok, there are some questions left:

 

can I use that copy that is just made as a copy on the desktop without using a rip-program?

 

why will toast not accept my login information so I can get on converting/uploading to Youtube, my clip? I can login to Youtube and I've tried to change the password

You should be able to use the ripped VIDEO_TS by placing it on the desktop or in the Movies folder (but not inside anything else). It should then show up in the DVD section of the Media Browser's Video tab. I'm clueless as to why Toast isn't allowing the YouTube login. Sorry.

it is on the desktop but it doesn't show up in the media browsers video tap?

 

I've tried to take a completely other video clip from the desk top that already are uploaded to YT. That doesn't show up in the media browser either but I can drag it into Toast like I can with one of the 4 Vob-files from the first video.

 

I'v tried to make a clip with both videos and tried to convert them to e.g. H.264 format, no Youtube, but a error message shows up, Toast cannot

convert........???

My only guess as to why it didn't appear in the browser is that you already had Toast open. You need to launch Toast after the VIDEO_TS folder is placed on the desktop in order to reset the Toast Media Browser. You then should see a small triangle next to DVD in the Video tab of the Media Browser. Clicking that reveals what the browser has found.

 

The problems with conversion are puzzling. I haven't encountered this. Was the original DVD created using a standalone DVD recorder or a DVD camcorder? Toast can have problems with timecode breaks that are common with those devices. There is a workaround I'll explain if that is what created the original DVDs.

good news, I'm getting closer. I've done two new things, got the latest version of Toast instead of 11.04 (sorry) and put my Video_ts-folder in my movie folder instead of on the desk top.

Now I can see the movies in the media browser, but it is the 4 vob-files instead of one long file, and there are some breaks that do not occur when I watch the dvd in Dvd-player on my iMac?

I tried to make a short clip, Toast would convert it now but still, Youtube will accept my login information. That's ok, I'll just use their normal webside BUT one last problem: Toast do not convert the clip I marked??? It has converted the first minutes of the dvd?? I've tried several times with exact the same result.???

thank's for your patience:-)

If Toast is seeing the VOBs in the Media Browser then it is likely you have the Data tab selected rather than the Video tab. When you have the Video tab selected you should see a list in the browser window that includes iMovie, Movies, DVD, AVCHD and Web Video (along with some others). Clicking the triangle next to DVD should show a line of text followed by thumbnail images of each title contained in the VIDEO_TS folder. (Double-clicking on a title will show thumbnails of individual chapters).

 

If Toast is not converting the entire selected video then the problem exists with timecode breaks. Fixing those requires the freeware application MPEG Streamclip (which in turn requires Apple's $20 QuickTime MPEG 2 Playback Component). Open the VIDEO_TS folder in Streamclip, choose the title you want, select Fix timecode breaks in the Edit menu, wait for that to complete and save the video in whatever format you like. For instance, you can use Streamclip to create the YouTube video. Or you can save it as an MPEG file to have Toast convert the saved file for YouTube (using Video Files as the format in the Toast convert window).

well, I had selected the video tap but the files is in the VIDEO_TS folder that I placed in the movies-folder. It does not work using the dvd, it stumples quite a lot.

 

Toast converts the first 3 minutes of the 1:19 long dvd and not the clip in the middle I had pinched out.

Very strange, by the way, if I look af the thumbnails of the vob-files, they are exactly the same.

 

Well, if I buy that Quciktime component, then I convert the file in that and then import that new fil into Toast and there I can cut it in the pieces I want??

MPEG Streamclip has an editor. You make one edit at a time (and can undo them). You wouldn't need Toast at all.
