View Full Version : [ubuntu] AcidRip/Mendcoder: New video has different colorspace/resolution

July 5th, 2008, 01:51 PM
Ok, I'm, trying to back up a DVD to my hard-drive, but I'm having some issues. When I tried using DVD::RIP, about 1 hour 30 minutes in, something would change and the video would look very different, and be basically unwatchable. Colours all wrong, that sort of thing.

I tried using AcidRip this time around, and it only did an hour and a half of the video. Figured it was a bit strange, so I checked the logs and found the message

New video file has different resolution or colorspace than the previous one.
FATAL: Cannot initialize video driver.


Anyone have any ideas on what's up with that? It's just one continuous 6-hour track on the DVD (or it appears to be anyway), which comes out as 4 VOB files. Possibly I need to compress and then combine each VOB file separately?

Thanks all.
