Best way to rip HD DVDs?

Postby Stryker412 » Tue Feb 24, 2009 3:01 pm

I can rip my BD fine, but I tried for the first time last night to rip some of my HD DVDs. I successfully made an mkv with AC3 audio, and it plays fine in Windows. However when I try to play it via PMS it says data is corrupted.

Most likely the audio is either E-AC3 which i dont think PMS supports, or the video codec is VC-1, which about 90% of HD DVD movies are. PS3 does not support VC-1 streamed, period. Any movie on VC-1 on both formats, just grab a re-encode of it, there is no way around this. Also, even HD DVD movies in AVC have issues streaming, they are encoded with 29.97 instead of 23.97 like Blu-rays are and PMS does not like them at all. Just a heads up. When it comes to anything HD DVD, just grab a re-encode and forget that format ever existed like the rest of the world already did.

p.s. - If you want to transcode the VC-1 into mpeg2 with mencoder, you can, but you will need the vc-1 wmv dll in the PMS codec folder. Do a search, the url got posted earlier. My comment above was strictly for streaming without transcoding, which is always the best way to handle streaming to the ps3.

Thank you quepaso that was very informative. I guess I'll have to rent the BD version of the HD DVDs I own.
