Hello,

I am trying to encode some Blu Ray movies that I ripped so I could watch them on my laptop. I'm using DVDFab HD Decryptor and Handbrake to Rip and encode the movies. All is well and fine through the encoding until I go to open the movie file. I have tried it with three different media players. Quicktime says the file is not one that Quicktime understands, Xbox video says that the video is not a supported format, and VLC Media player refuses to play completely. I have changed no setting from the default in Handbrake, the video is an MP4 file encoded using the H.264 codec. This is unfamiliar territory for me, but I'm nonetheless trying. My setup is as follows;

Intel Core i7-920
12GB Corsair Dominator GT RAM
Dual ATI Radeon HD5770s in Crossfire
MSI Eclipse X58 Mobo
and a crappy Maxtor 300GB Hard Drive

Thanks for the help!

I use anydvdhd now but have used dvdfab in the past. both work. I rip to an .ISO and mount the ISO with Virtual CloneDrive.

in handbrake, for video what I do is choose High Profile, MKV container, H.264, FPS - check Same as Source, and check Constant Framerate.

for audio I choose passthru for whatever format the original was (DTS passtru, AC3 passthru, whatever) and delete the other tracks.

everything else I leave be.

then VLC or XBMC to play it.

works great for me.

Make is real easy on yourself, fire up MakeMKV. One tool and done.

I prefer to shrink the size down a bit, makemkv leaves it the same size, does it not?

handbrake converts a 45 gig bluray to 3-10 gigs, depending, with very little degradation in video quality.

of course Im no videophile so the trading size for video quality is fine by me (to a point anyway). Im more interested in keeping the audio bit perfect, which passthu does.
