I tried to give MPEG Mediator 1.4. Right away I had a problem.
See, I Smartripped a DVD to separate chapter VOBs and I got 37 VOBs out of that. I did that so I can create 2 D2Vs, chapters 1 - 19 and the other 20 - 37. Mediator can't select ALL of them for me to get the full movie wav file.

Is MPEG Mediator so limited Also do I have select the each vob in sequence? I didn't try to see what would happen if I selected 1,5,3,7 and I didn't see any auto sort.

Select them individually by holding down "CTRL" + click. Also, to select all, you select them in "reverse" order an then it sorts them in ascending order.

kwag,

That's the first thing I did but the selection doesn't hold. When I press "open", the vobs get deselected.

The problem is indeed some limitation of MPEG Mediator. The list of files that can be imported as a single stream is limited to 16. My assumption when coding this was that every vob of a movie (except the last of course) would be 1 gig in size. So 16 files in this case would mean a *very* long movie. Obviously I was wrong....

PS and OT: MPEG Mediator is going to Sourceforge in the near future, so it will be easier for other people to join the development.

Hello mediator,

Yeeah sourceforge.net. That's great , so many people can get their teeth into the code. Count me on

Sometimes Mpeg Mediator extracts the wav out of sync. Maybe some
answers could be found when digging into the code.

I gave up on Mediator 1.4 but went back to check it out though. I previously said that Mediator couldn't select all my 37 VOBs and that's still true if i selected them all at one time. After playing with it for about 5 minutes, I got the work around. Mediator can only open up 9 VOBs at a time, just like DVD2AVI.

When Smartripper extracted to separate VOBs, it puts the chapter number at the end of the file name by default, eg. vob_1, vob_2, vob_3. Anyway, to make it easier for me, I went and renamed the VOBs 1-9 as vob_01, vob_02,vob_03,... Doing that way, it'll be easier to select them in Mediator. I just don't like having to select a bunch of VOBs in reverse order. By doing this, all the VOBs are numerically in sequence.

As I said earlier, I can only select 9 VOBs max so the pattern of opening is...

1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9
10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19
20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,28,29
30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37

Whew...all that work just for that project.
