You dumped a DVD to file.iso?

You will need to find the title on the dvd that you want.
You also need libdvdcss installed for content scrambling.
Example:
Code:
mplayer -dvd-device file.iso dvd://3 -dumpstream -dumpfile outfile.vob
Code:
ffmpeg -i outfile.vob -c:a copy -c:v libx264 -crf 18 -preset slow -s 768x432 out.mp4
See:
man mplayer
man ffmpeg

Check out 'handbrake' for DVD ripping.

Sorry I don't want to rip a DVD. I converted uif to .img then to iso file. Handbrake has no facility to iso to video
format. The code examples don't seem to work. Is there any other way.

Thanks

I don't know what you have now. You started with a proprietary image format and then converted it twice.

What is the output of
Code:
file myfile.iso
Can you mount the .iso to look at its file structure?
Code:
mount -o loop myfile.iso /mounting/point
If so do you see a dvd structure? Or wasn't this taken from a dvd at all? How about giving all of the relevent info this time.

I'm lost with this. Back to the start with this.

here is the title Complete Human Anatomy Primal 3D Interactive Series and here are the modules.

Foot & Ankle.uif
Hand.uif
Head & Neck.uif
Hip.uif
Knee.uif
Pelvis.uif
Shoulder.uif
Spine.uif
Thorax & Abdomen.uif

I used uif2iso to convert uif file to .img format. I had to use something else to convert .img format to iso format.
And this where i'm stuck. Everything is in uif format for the time being. Only one module is converted that is Spine.iso

If this dosen't work i will upload to MEGA.NZ and share the files to see if anybody else can figure this out.

I think you should back up a bit; what exactly is this DVD? Because it looks like it's an interactive DVD-ROM to explore various parts of the anatomy. If that's the case, that would explain why you started with UIF files, which is just a proprietary disk image format, much like ISO or IMG. Those files would likely be mounted by the actual software in order to use them as part of the program.

If it is indeed an interactive program and not an actual video, it isn't going to be possible to magically convert it into one. It's like if you had a copy of DOOM and said "make this into a video".

If I'm incorrect and it's supposed to be videos, the videos would be inside those UIF files. You need to mount them and see what's inside.

If this is your last version...

Read the man page
man uif2iso
Code:
uif2iso input.uif ouput.iso
Then reread posts 2 and 6 for mounting an .iso, or using a player like mplayer or mpv to dump the video to .vob, and reencoding to another format. dvd vobs are mpeg2 and ac3 audio.

Also see:
man mplayer
man mpv
man ffmpeg
or handbrakes docs if you want to use it.

I've used Acetoneiso to look inside. The DVD folder is empty the only thing left is windows executable file.

Next time you want to make an .iso out of a DVD, or if you can get those DVD's again.
Find out which device your optical drive is, then
Code:
 dd if=/dev/sr0 of=dvd_image.iso bs=2048
or
Code:
cat /dev/sr0 > dvd_image.iso
or for disks that won't read normally.
Code:
dd if=/dev/sr0 bs=2048 count=$(isosize -d 2048 /dev/sr0) conv=notrunc,noerror > dvd_imgage.iso
Then you will have an .iso that can be used to make another clone DVD just like the original
Code:
growisofs -dvd-compat -speed=8 -use-the-force-luke=tty -Z /dev/sr0=/path/dvd_image.iso
or mount it to see it's contents
or use the .iso to dump the video if it's a video DVD.
And that .iso can be used on anything that can read an .iso file.

If you use proprietary software to make proprietary formats then you may be stuck using it to read your output files.
Long live open source.

Have you tried to use wine to read those windows executables?
Or better yet, read them with a microsoft box, and the software that made them.

Good luck.
