Job 'Transcoding video - title #1, pass 1' failed.

Executed command: mkdir -m 0775 -p '/windows/C/SocioSiniestro/tmp' && cd /windows/C/SocioSiniestro/tmp && dr_exec transcode -H 10 -a 0 -x vob -i /windows/C/SocioSiniestro/vob/001 -w 875,50 -b 128,0,0 -s 2.735 --a52_drc_off -f 24,1 -M 2 -Y 4,0,4,0 -Z 640x360 -R 1 -y xvid4,null -o /dev/null --print_status 20 && echo DVDRIP_SUCCESS

My first guess is that /dev/dvd is not symlinked to your actual DVD drive. There may also be a problem trying to write to your windows partitions, but that's probably not the primary reason for this error.

Try the program vobcopy. It is command line, but it is much better than DVD::Rip. You also have the option of ripping the DVD into one .vob file, instead of having to condense them later with cat.

Install it (should be available for your distro) and then use this command :

vobcopy -l /dev/hdc (replace hdc with your dvd reader drive)

That will automatically rip the first title to a vob file (the -l switch (that is an L, not an I btw) tells it to rip to one large .vob file instead of a bunch of smaller ones). If you want it to be numerous vob files like in DVD::Rip, remove the -l switch.

Also, if you want to rip a different title....lets use title 3, you would do the command like this :

vobcopy -l -n 3 /dev/hdc

What exactly are you using DVD::Rip for? Backing up DVDs? If so, reply back and let me know, I'll tell you how to use command tools and k3b to make a dvd backup. DVD::Rip has left me with numerous coasters....I have yet to have a problem with vobcopy+transcode+dvdauthor/dvdstyler. (To use vobcopy on an encrypted DVD, you must have libdvdcss installed.)

Anyways, post back and let me know. your Windows partition an NTFS partition by any chance?

I'm using DVD::Rip to rip my DVD and to "compress" it with XviD. The program u mention only rips the DVD into vob files
Anyway, i fixed the problem. I had to install a new version of XviD

Possible Solution

Sorry to gravedig, but here's a potential solution for anyone finding this in Google.

I'm using two Ubuntu machines in clustered mode, and the remote machine came up with a similar error: [] No libxvidcore API4 found

I found that installing the package "libxvidcore4" solved this problem. For Ubuntu or Debian users that's "sudo apt-get install libxvidcore4" on the command line.


dvdrip, solution, xvid
