    Please can anyone help with regard to the following:
    I have used IfoEdit ,Vobedit and an Mpeg decoder in order for me to do some editing. What I don't understand is... how do I go about either creating new chapters or editing the old ones using the above software? I used the guide from this site called "DVD Authoring in IfoEdit", went through all the steps but dunno how to answer my question. Thanks

    I need help with the same problem. I don't want to recreate chapters or subtitles. I want to edit a movie and retain the original extras as much as possible. Is there a relatively painless way to do this? Do I need to become educated with IFO edit?

    I can tell you what doesn't work.

    FIRST ATTEMPT:
    Movie was decrypted with DVD Decrypter.
    Main movie was in one VOB file.
    VOB file was imported into MPEG Video Wizard (MVW)
    Minor edits made (less than 1% had to be re-encoded)
    New file (mpg) was substituted into origin VIDEO_TS
    mpg extension was changed to VOB
    DVD Shrink didn’t accept the fake extension and couldn't open the file

    SECOND ATTEMPT:
    Edited file (mpg) was converted to a legitimate VOB file using the option, Create DVD Folders in Ulead DVD Movie Factory.

    The new VOB file was then substituted into the original VIDEO_TS folder, but again, DVD shrink wouldn't accept it. Error message was that the handle was invalid. What handle? Huh?

    Can someone point me in the right direction?
