Thank you Nick,

Which package has any2dvd - I can't find it in portage and it's not on my system (I have no Gnome libs on my machine).

I am sure the program developer (whose thread this basically is) will correct me if I am wrong, but...

http://mightylegends.zapto.org/dvd/ebuilds/media-video/ for ebuilds, there are also ebuilds at bugs.gentoo.org

I can't seem to get this to work.

RUnning an extremely basic command line:

any2dvd -i myvid.avi

My video is an xvid.

It seems my mplayer install can't use the -vo dummy option? The mplayer guys say that theres no such option for -vo, and I should be using -vo null.

Any tips?

Relevant log snippits:

Running: transcode -H0 -i "lrc-natm.r5.avi" -x mplayer="-mc 0",mplayer -f 25.000 -g 608x336 -n 0x1 -e 0,16,0 -y ffmpeg -F mpeg2 -Z 720x576 --export_asr 3 --pre_clip=no -j -2,0,-2,0 -J resample, -D0 -N 0x2000 -E 48000,16,2 -b 384 -s2 -m "tmp_any2dvd/lrc-natm.r5.ac3" -o "tmp_any2dvd/lrc-natm.r5" ...

Isn't the NTSC section supposed to have a frame rate of 29.97?

I have the same problem. I'm going to try down-grading transcode to 1.0.2-r2. My current version is 1.0.2-r3, which is stable.

Things used to work just fine for me, so I assume 'rate' has been deprecated or something... (no idea really).

I suppose 'rate' shouldn't be deprecated actually considering I've only moved from r2 to r3. I assume the version number change would be more significant if there were API changes.

EDIT:
Trying to re-emerge transcode v1.0.2-r2 failed. I get this error before the later errors:
Code:
ERROR: requirement failed: cannot compile ffmpeg/avcodec.h
ffmpeg/avcodec.h can be found in the following packages:
  FFmpeg  http://www.ffmpeg.org


When I examine the active use flags for ffmpeg I notice several are not enabled anymore. Perhaps a profile change altered things --I have no idea. The problem may involve use flags. I'm going to fiddle ;)...

Well, I can't figure out the problem at the moment. I doubt it's use flags.

I recompiled ffmpeg, but I still can't recompile transcode v1.0.2-r2 (not that I even know if down-grading would fix the problem.) Following are the transcode compile errors, the ffmpeg use flag settings and the transode use flag settings.

EDIT: One thing I'm going to check is compiling without mmx/sse/sse2 which are newly active use flags for some reason. I'm on a AMD64 system with (if I remember properly) no compatibility libraries (I don't think this would affect such things, but I'm at a loss).
EDIT 2: Didn't fix anything removing sse/mmx/sse2 us flags.

There is a new version of any2dvd (0.34) available from http://any2dvd.sf.net
An ebuild can be obtained from the usual places:
Either from http://mightylegends.org/dvd/ebuilds/media-video/any2dvd/ or http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126994

This is incorrect, MPlayer does indeed have a '-vo dummy' option. Try this as an example:
Code:
mplayer -vo dummy -identify somefile.avi

Now try this example using '-vo null -ao null' instead:
Code:
mplayer -vo null -ao null -identify somefile.avi

See the difference ?

The reason you are experiencing problems using the script is that MPlayer's text output has changed considerably in later versions. As such 0.32 will only work with old versions of MPlayer, while the new 0.34 version will work with both new and old versions of MPlayer.

[transcode] critical: invalid pcm parameter 'rate' for option -e


Once again, this is because of the MPlayer version changes to it's text output. A correct '-e' option would read '-e <rate>,<bits>,<channels>' (eg. '-e 44100,16,2'). Because the script has failed to extract the correct info from MPlayer, the arguments are invalid and it fails.

This is not the case with the newer 0.34 version, but I do stress that if you are having problems with the script in future to use the bug tracker on the script's project page at http://any2dvd.sf.net , thanks :)

at http://mightylegends.org/dvd/ebuilds/media-video/any2dvd/

The Manifest file is for version 3.2

I can update this myself, but maybe others can't or don't want to. Am I looking at the wrong website?

It's not for 0.32 per se, but it barfs if the 0.32 ebuild file isn't there.

emerge =any2dvd-0.34 seems to fix it fine; perhaps it chose 0.32 because of ~x86 masking, I'm not sure.

Cheers!

Any tips?


This is incorrect, MPlayer does indeed have a '-vo dummy' option. Try this as an example:
Code:
mplayer -vo dummy -identify somefile.avi

Now try this example using '-vo null -ao null' instead:
Code:
mplayer -vo null -ao null -identify somefile.avi

See the difference ?


I can't get this to work either, the "-vo dummy" option isn't recognised, and the command just plays audio.

This is a different issue and is due to the use of an MPlayer SVN snapshot.
In the stable/formal releases of MPlayer, using '-vo dummy' also assumes '-ao dummy', but not so for the SVN.

For the SVN version of MPlayer that you are using you would use:
Code:
mplayer -vo dummy -ao dummy -identify Freaky_Eaters_E3_Cheese. avi
to achieve the same result.

The errors you are experiencing with:
Code:
ERR:  widescreen conversion should not be set to either noletterbox or nopanscan for 4:3 source material.
are due to dvdauthor being more strict on 4:3 material in later versions (have updated the guide noting this).

You have two options here, either edit the XML file located at tmp_any2dvd/xml/any2dvd.xml and remove all instances of
Code:
<video widescreen="nopanscan" />
for 4:3 aspect material and re-run
Code:
rm -rf tmp_any2dvd/DVD/* && dvdauthor -x tmp_any2dvd/xml/any2dvd.xml
OR

Downgrade dvdauthor back to 0.6.11

Cheers

Hi, sorry for the delay in responding, but I've been away for some weeks. I'm using mplayer-1.0_rc2_pre20070321-r4 ~amd64 in portage, as suggested in the guide. Your suggestion here does not work, the said command trys to play but fails!

mplayer-bin does work, but I'd rather not use it.

Excellent, that's exactly what it's supposed to do.
Remember that you are trying to gain info from the file by using '-identify', not play the file. :roll:

Hi Guys,

Anyone know how to one can predict how much space a combination of files will take up on the DVD?

Reason for this is that I'm converting AVI's but then finding out I don't have enough space on the DVD for all the files I wanted...

Thank you in advance,

J

Hide the button_highlight layer & save the background layer.
Do this by selecting the button_highlight layer and using the Opacity slider in the 'Layers, Channels & Paths' dialog box to make it disappear.
[...]
Save the button_highlight layer in the same way. Use the opacity slider to bring the button_highlight layer back up, and hide the background layer.

Just a quick tip: it is a lot easier to hide the layer by clicking on "eye" icon just at left of layer name. Maybe you should edit the first post to point this easier way of hiding layers.

I have created this block in title the logic is correct --- xml excerpt

<pgc>
<vob file="C:\MYSTUFF\MY C++ PROGRAMS\TITLEWRITER\TOOLS\dummy.vob" chapters="00:00:00" />
<pre>
if(g0==123) {g1=12346;g0+=0;call vmgm menu entry title;}
g0=123;
if(g1==12346){g1=12345;jump chapter 1;}
</pre>
<post>{g0=1;call vmgm menu entry title;}</post>
</pgc>

in this statement if(g1==12346){g1=12345;jump chapter 1;}
Dvdauthor is only using the first command g1=12345; the second seems to vanish (shown below)
No errors no warnings

Heres the result from PgcEdit (after dvdauthor is done)

1 if ( gprm(0) != 123 ) then { Goto line 5 }
2 Set gprm(1) =(mov) 12346
3 Set gprm(0) +=(add) 0
4 (CallSS) Call the VMGM Title menu, resume cell 1
5 Set gprm(0) =(mov) 123
6 if ( gprm(1) == 12346 ) then { Set gprm(1) =(mov) 12345 }
********** post commands:
1 Set gprm(0) =(mov) 1
2 (CallSS) Call the VMGM Title menu, resume cell 1

I cannot create a seperate dummy pgc in titles block because of the discontinuity problem
I've deleted the first set command and DvdAuthor then created the LinkPtt (but I need the g1 reset before the chapter jump
I cannot use the Jump title 1,chapter n syntax as it restarts the ttn pre
And it won't let me create a dummy menu without content

I'm Stumped
