Default How To Combine Video_ts Files Into A Single Dvd Video

Guys I have got Video_TS files that I burnt whilst i was still learning the art. I can play the rest of the movie in them but not as a single video, i get to open 6 files to see the rest of the movie using power dvd.

Can you please tell me how I can combine these files into a single dvd video.......I tried to use dvd shrink but it says its a wrong navigation structure........when i use nero the files do not pass the compliance test

Please help

Sounds like you've lost the IFOs & BUPs that go with those VOBs. The best solution is to re-rip the source DVDs. Otherwise, you'll need a mastering program like TMPGEnc's DVDAuthor.

I think that you're saying you want to merge those titles?
You can do so by using this method of joining the VOBs, and then creating the matching IFOs and BUPs.

Hope that is what you're trying to do and the info helps.

Guys I have used the guides to create a dvd from multiple files.......after I rename my files into VTS_01_001.VOB, VTS_01_002 and VTS_01_003 I used Vobedit to join the files and saved the ouput into new folder.

I do not get a single Vob after joinging them, I get new files renamed into VTS_01_01, VTS_01-02, VTS_01_03..........how come I dont get single file....this a first question

The second question is after I have this files I have to use Ifoedit to create ifo files........must I do this for each and every file or would it be just the first VTS_01_01 file only? does Ifoedit automatically creates BUP files when it asks if bup files should be created when saving or would I hve to create BUP files? Must I use nero or dvd shrink to put together the video when I am done. Please advice further

First question, depending on the file size, VobEdit can create more than one .vob file. For making this guide, I used only one sample clip and that why only one .vob was made

No, you only need to select the first .vob of the titleset

Of course, .bup file is the backup of .ifo file. Therefore, IfoEdit creates both of these files for you

You can use DVD Shrink after first to check your DVD is correctly created and seconf to reduce the filesize to fit if needed. You can then burn with Nero or create the image of your DVD with DVD Shrink and burn it with ImgBurn or DVD Decrypter.

Just remember to set the default language and run the Mockstrip after you are done with IfoEdit. Good luck

Thanks, I created the IFO and BUP files and burnt with Nero.......the video plays well.

Just for interest though and to improve....when I opened the Vts_folder where I created the IFO and BUP files, DVD_Shrink indicated invalid data on Vts 01_03. I then tried to perform the mock strip with Ifoedit on the file, when I opened the file there were no audio streams in it to check and strip.......I tried three time to click strip anyway and then it makes an era.

I summary then the file indicated as containing "invalid data" by dvdshrink that I have to perform mock strip on does not show any audio stream or subpictures to strip its empty.......how do u deal with this?

Does it play OK?

You don't mock strip a file - you mock strip a domain.

A mock strip is easy. Open the relevant IFO in IfoEdit. Click on VOB extras. Then click OK. In the following screens make sure everything is ticked and then click strip. When it is finished all the pointers should be OK.

If this is a bit complicated, just run the DVD through either FixVTS or if that doesn't work, VobBlanker.
