    Reverse TyTools = slooTyT ?

    TyTools is a brilliant all-in-one solution for going from TiVo>Ty>MPG>VOB>DVD.

    Does anyone know of a simple solution to reverse this process, at least as far as MPG. In other words go from DVD>VOB>MPG where you have one big MPG file that contains the whole movie?

    My goal is not necessarily to re-insert to a TiVo (although that would be nice) it is more to create MPEG files of my DVDs that can be displayed on my computer or on my Gateway Connected DVD player.

    There are some good ripping tools (SmartRipper, DVD Decrypter) that go from DVD to VOB, but then how do you get from VOB to MPEG? Can this be done without a lot of re-encoding?

    Tytools might be able to do it

    I think that when a few bugs are fixed in tytools you will be able to mux the vob's from a dvd into an mpeg. Unfortunately right now I think that the indexing is broken so you wouldn't be able to.

    Other than that I think you are stuck transcoding the vobs to mpeg which takes a while.

    First step is to do a web search...

    Believe me, I have done a lot of that. I have also looked on HTPC forums where people have set up DVD jukeboxes. The usual routine is something like this:

    1. Rip DVD to HD with DVD Decrypter or SmartRipper.
    2. Use DVD Shrink to get rid of stuff (i.e. languages, etxtras) that you don't want.
    3. Re-author the VOBs.
    4. Use Daemon Tools or other similar software to mount the VOB files so that your PC thinks that they are running from a DVD drive.

    or use FlaskMPEG or TMPGEnc tools that take hours and hours to re-encode and have a >50% probability of crashing before finishing.

    Since a VOB file is basically an MPEG-2 file it should be fairly simple to go from a VOB to an MPEG-2 of the same resolution and bitrate, shouldn't it? Audio could cause a problem, but re-encoding of all of the video shouldn't really be required, should it?

    ok, well, I'm convinced you looked. Surprised you didn't figure this out.

    Load your VOBs into GOPEditor and process to multiplex. You can find a multitude of free MPEG joiners at places like doom9.org

    Following your post I tried this and TyTools died every time when trying to make a key file out of a VOB. I tried with several VOBs from 2 different DVDs ripped with different rippers. A previous post in this thread by malfunct mentions problems with indexing which is probably the issue.

    What a minute. When you typed "reverse the process", did you mean a VOB from a tytool-created IFO file set or a standard DVD?
