    Hello

    I'm trying to remove some logo's using DeLogo filter in Virtualdub MPEG2. I have a DVD "VOB format" and i use the frame server funktion in Virtualdub MPEG2. I open the server file in
    TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 and follow the wizard.....

    Now to the problem.

    When I press Start output button, it says:

    Unsupported file. (error code 0x80048003)"

    Output preview is okay, subtitles and audio is appears and its running well.

    Please help me how to make it works, thanks

    I don't think frameserving works from Virtualdub to Tmpgenc V3.
    Have you *ever* got it to work ?

    You have successfully encoded a video in TmpgEnc 3 frameserved
    from Vdub ?? I was never able to get it to work.

    A possible work around is to install AVISYNTH an create a simple script
    to open the VDR. Then open the script in Tmpg.

    See this for more info:

    Frameserving directly from Vdub to Tmpgenc 3 does not work.
    I've seen quite a few posts - nobody, as far as I know could resolve it.
    As you say, you can browse the preview but the encode always fails.
    The workaround with avisynth works well. Why not try it.
    Here are the details.
    Install avisynth.
    Setup virtualdub as before, start the frameserving and save the VDR
    signpost file.
    Open NOTEPAD and create a one line file with the following contents:
    avisource("C:\your_path\your_file.vdr")

    (obviously put in the proper path and filename)

    Save the text file, and rename it to my_file.avs

    Open the my_file.avs in Tmpgenc. I just tried it and seems to work.

    Will this Avisync let me keep the DVD "VOB format"?
    I will try it, but can you maybe help me with a guide step by step how to do. I get confuse about:
    "Open NOTEPAD and create a one line file with the following contents:
    avisource("C:\your_path\your_file.vdr")

    (obviously put in the proper path and filename)

    Save the text file, and rename it to my_file.avs

    Open the my_file.avs in Tmpgenc. I just tried it and seems to work."

    My signpost file is named server.vdr.avi
    thanks for helping me

    It's simple - if you're using server.vdr.avi ,
    Open notepad and type this one line.

    avisource("C:\server.vdr.avi")

    (modify the above to reflect the actual file location)

    Save it as a TXT file,then rename it my_file.AVS.

    Open that avs file in Tmpgenc as the source.

    The VOB file and the server.vdr.avi file is in this location:

    G:\news\movie

    How do i?

    avisource("G:\news\movie\VTS_01_1.VOB\server.vdr")

    VTS_01_1.VOB= is the file name
    server.vdr.avi is the one i make in virtualdubMpeg
    and i use TMPGEnc DVD Author 3 or shall i use the TMPGEnc ??

    no, you don't need to reference the vob file in the
    avisource statement. The VOB is already opened in Virtualdub,
    and is framserved in order to get it to work.
    It looks like this:
    (vob source)>virtualdub> VDR> AVS file source > avisynth> tmpgenc

    So it should look something like this:
    avisource("G:\news\movie\server.vdr")

    Make sure you have windows to not "hide extensions for known filetypes",
    because it's confusing when they're hidden. You'll find this setting
    in control panel/folder options.

    Then in virtualdub, set the signpost to server.VDR - no need to
    add the .avi

    You're taking 2 VOB's out of a Video_ts folder, re-encoding them,
    and you want to replace the original VOB's with the two you created?

    I don't think this will work as-is, you may need to reauthor the DVD,
    and I think you may lose the original menu.

    But this is not an area I'm that experienced with . If I were you,
    when you're ready, make a new thread in the dvd video-authoring
    forum. http://forums.afterdawn.com/forum_view.cfm/126
    Include as much detail as possible - what you did, and what
    you want to see. Somebody else will help you.

    Hi again davexnet.
    Do you know why TMPGEnc DVD Author makes 2 dvd "VOB format" files in the output even if the input only has one file??? How can i do, so the input and the output is same size?

    Since it's an authoring app., it must be creating the video_ts folder
    and contents to the DVD specification.

    The spec says that each VOB can only be up to 1GB in size.
    The continuation goes onto succeeding VOBs. For example,
    VTS_01_1.VOB continues onto VTS_01_2.VOB.

    ok, but still it make the VOB files bigger then the original? I have to get some software which can combine all VOB files to one DVD so i can burn it out and see the movie on my dvd player...

    Well you can set the bit-rate to what ever you want (within the dvd
    spec) when you do the encoding. If it's bigger than it was, it's
    set too high.

    One way of finding the bit-rate to use is to open the original VOB's in virtualdub and look at file/info. It will tell you there,
    just use those values in the encoder.


    Then make a post in the dvd-authoring forum as I mentioned before.
