Hey guys,

I've got some footy footage my mate needs to chuck on youtube. So I have used handbrake in the past but I cant rip all vobs from the DVD to one avi/mp4. Is there a trick? I've done this before I'm sure of it.

Do I need another app? mac the ripper?

Cheers,

Without having done it - perhaps import all the ripped avis/mp4 into something like iMovie / iDVD, then export as afinal stream?

(Knee response sorry, been a whilesince I've played with this sort of stuff ...)

You're on the right track.
Use Mac The Ripper to do a Full Disk Extraction.
Then Handbrake to rip the main feature to the avi/mp4 format of choice.
Youtube has a page suggesting the best formats and sizes to upload.
In terms of getting the best quality video to youtube, I would set the output file size the maximum file size you wish to upload.
Take advantage of H264 also!

Cheers,
Joseph.

That'd just get the "main" VOB though.

I haven't done this for a while either, but I'd suggest using MTR to get all the VOBs onto your hard drive, and then MPEG Streamclip to concatenate them. I believe that you can export directly from Streamclip to MPEG-4.

yeah my problem is that it only rips one vob. so mpeg streamclip will consolidate them all?

If you are using Handbrake.
Choose the VIDEO_TS folder, as the source, Handbrake should then give you analyze the "disk" and you will be able to choose with the "Title" popup, which video title you wish to rip.
If it is the main feature, then you just need to choose the title with the longest length (hh:mm:ss)

To Jofizz. Sorry a bit off topic but with Handbreak (which does work well for ripping DVDs and encoding to mp4!). When you say take advantage of H264 what does that mean? Is that so you can rip a SD (standard definition) DVD and encode to HD (High Definition) MP4?

H264 is just another codec really, it's the standard now for Youtube video, and gives good video quality for a smaller file size. It does require a more powerful processor to encode or decode. (I am certainly not an expert tho!)
You can encode either HD or SD content using H264.

And just to clarify re uploading from Youtube, they recommend:
Resolution Recommended: 1280 x 720 (16x9 HD) and 640 x 480 (4:3 SD)
Codec H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 preferred.

So if your source is SD, I don't think you will gain anything by exporting/encoding to HD or 720p.

Cheers,
Joseph.

Thanks Joseph. That clears things up for me.

From Youtube best formats for uploading ->

Video Format: H.264, MPEG-2 or MPEG-4 preferred
Aspect Ratio: Native aspect ratio without letterboxing (examples: 4:3, 16:9)
Resolution: 640x360 (16:9) or 480x360 (4:3) recommended
Audio Format: MP3 or AAC preferred
Frames per second: 30
Maximum length: 10 minutes (we recommend 2-3 minutes)
Maximum file size: 1 GB
