scratch that. Certain parts of the dvds work, but others dont. The parts that I've already used that work, still work, but there are certain other parts taken from the same dvds that do not work. All were ripped at the same time using the same program in the same format, in original mpeg. some chapters work just fine, others don't and I have no clue why. They're identical except for the frame rate, the ones that work have a frame rate of 23.976fps, the ones that dont have a frame rate of 26.64fps. I have no clue why the frame rate is different, or why they don't work
that helps, but I'm still not sure for a solution. I already am working with mpeg files that I ripped from the VOB with a different program. I realized early on that using VOB wouldn't work well and converted everything to mpeg before importing them to premiere. I'm currently reripping the dvd to see if there's any definable variable that causes the different frame rates among the chapters or if its just a random fluke of the ripping and conversion process.
Some ripping software, like some conversion software, will do a better job, than some others will.
If you have both PAL and NTSC, then you might have to do some conversions there for Frame Rates.
Hi, I've had a similar problem in CS5 with simple MPEG fles recorded by regular point-and shoot camera.
The files would play fine on my laptop under CS3 but will freeze in CS5 and only the sound would play.
I solved the problem by upgrading the MPEG codec that is used by Windows.
My suggestions is - use the 'G-Spot' freeware program to determine what codec you need and if you have it installed on your comp.
Then go and download the latest version of the codec and install it.
Hope this helps.
