Hi Inc,

I recently ripped an episode off my Simpsons DVD and converted it in Packshot.

I forgot to one huge VOB and 2 VOBs were ripped so I converted them one by one.

I used the DOS command copy /b movie1.m2v + movie2.m2v

But this produced a bitrate too high and DVD-Lab produced an error warning me of this.

Both the movies m2v files were 2001 kbps which is fine but when I merged them with that DOS command i got a bitrate of 13219.

Obiviously the DOS command doesnt work is there another way I can merge the two video files, the audio files seemed to merge o.k.

Any info on my prob would be a great help.

Thanks.

I never knew that merging files will affect bitrates

Well

a) Which Version of DVDlab do you use?? As DVDlab related to compatibility SUCKS! I do use MaestroDVD and TmpgEnc DVD Author ... as I had also other Probs when using DVDlab in the past.

b) Wich max Bitrate did you enter in Packshot?

I have the Pro version 1.4 beta 1.

I noticed another prob after authoring. It starts playing the the Simpsons Intro Music and freezes half way through.

I dont know why

Probably a glitch at the merge (joined) point.
Check your VOB with Bitrate Viewer, and see if you see a big spike at that point.
