What I want to do is automaticaly separate my Music DVDs to create in sense separate Music Videos.

Is any one out there already doing this?  Any recomendations on how I go about this.

Now these will all be from DVDs I own - But I don't care what the end file is as my popcorn hour will be able to handle it.

Cheers Shane

I have done it using DVDShrink to create individual .vob files that I just renamed to .mpeg to play back in MediaPortal. Works well and I dont lose any quality.

Handbrake will allow you to rip videos by chapter (or groups of chapters)

I havn't tried DVD shrink yet - Lack of time.

But Handbrake worked a charm. The only issue I had was it wouldn't read my test dvd - And gave me a Anti copying warning.

But as I have done full DVD structure rips of my music DVDs - Handbrake was able to open and process those perfectly without any dramas.

+1 use handbrake

to get past your 'other problem' you can use anydvd to rip it to HDD and then use handbrake to re-encode.

I actually use DVD Fab - Do a DVD9 to DVD9 copy - When it asks me to insert a blank DVD I pop into the DVD Fab temp folder and copy the files out. Then cancel the Insert DVD request.

Works a dream.
