Client wants his DVD published to his video streaming website.
First I worked for a while with
effmpeg, but kept getting errors.
ffmpeg -i concat:VIDEO_TS.VOB\|VTS_01_0.VOB\|VTS_01_1.VOB -vcodec libxvid -q:v 5 -s 640x480 -aspect 640:480 -r 30 -g 300 -bf 2 -acodec libmp3lame -ab 160k -ar 32000 -async 32000 -ac 2 ~/Documents/Clients/Client/test.mp4
[ac3 @ 0x7fae3c027400] exponent 25 is out-of-range [ac3 @ 0x7fae3c027400] error decoding the audio block Error while decoding stream #0:4: Error number -16976906 occurred
Realized it’s because the DVD is encrypted.
Came across this post suggesting that if I
brew install libdvdcss, then use the France-based Handbrake application (free) I’ll be able to export decent quality
mp4 files (same file type as
m4v–you can actually just swap out the extension).
