lokster:

-af volnorm=2:0.7 ... I often replace the 7 with 5 so less distortion...but can use 7...default is 0.25 I believe... so I use...

-af volnorm=2:0.5

MediaCoder which is based on mencoder and ffdshow has a dB setting that can be adjusted progressively like your other settings...I wonder if it is possible to incorporate this in your program? The only other adjustment that I use that I don't think you've included is a sharpness adjustment but this may not be possible?

Thanks so much for all your efforts !!! Your program is what I use preferrably. Great job !!! The FLV files seem to be converting at 320x240 consistently now.

In the next version of viDrop (which is on its way...) there will be options for setiing sharpness and amount of volume normalization.
I just need some time to add these features.

Hello, I wanted to say that I love this converter, a lot easier to use than the avi converter, but I'm having trouble converting some mp4 videos. For some reason the sides of the videos get cropped, but I'm using the same settings that I use on other videos and they work fine.



The only thing that I can think of that would cause this is the fact that the videos have more of a wide screen format. Is there a setting that would fix this?

Yes, there is. In "Advanced settings", in "Resize method" select "add borders". This way, if the movie's aspect ratio is different than the aspect of your player, the movie won't get cropped, but resized proportionally to the specified width, and then expanded vertically with black borders, so it's height is equal to the specified height. Here is an example of the three resize methods:

Pan&Scan:


Keep aspect:


Add borders:


For our RockChip based players, "Keep aspect" does not work, because the movie resolution must be equal to the player resolution.

I've just started into the world of mp4 players and converters, etc. I noticed on at least two of my conversions using this software (which works GREAT!) the sides are cropped a bit. Would the "add borders" fix this problem or am I using a different setting then I should? 320x240 seems to work well otherwise. Thanks!

roman,
just make sure aviconvertor is set to 220x176 and the video should play fine.
aviconvertor is set 320x240 by default, this is wrong, you need to change it to 220x176 BEFORE you start converting.

Hi folks!
I just released the new version of viDrop.
Hopefully, I have fixed the bug with some mpeg or flv movies not resizing correctly (which leads to "File format error" when played on the player). Also, fixed erroneous behavior of the "..." button for selecting subtitle font.

There are some new options:
- adjust subtitle font size
- rotate the picture
- flip the picture

For those of you who want to donate to the development of viDrop, there is a button "Donate!" in the "Information" tab, from which you can diectly donate via PayPal.

But REMEMBER: viDrop is FREEWARE, and always will be.

Here is a screenshot

You can download viDrop 0.53 here

Or use the "Check for update" button in viDrop "Information" tab.

I love your program.

It is really quick on most computers as well.

Just wondering how to select different chapters when ripping content of a DVD because at the moment i am trying to rip a DVD and it detects it but only converts the security warning and not the actual movie!

Perhaps in the next version you could provide more dvd ripping utilities.

Thanks for this fantastic program

Will

Exactly what problems do you have? Be more specific, otherwise I can't help you...

@wipsomass - about the dvd problems - try opening dvd://1 and press "Preview" (or dvd://2 or dvd://3 etc...), until you find the desired dvd title. According to mencoder manual, if you specify only dvd:// (without the title number), it will rip the largest track... You can try this too.

Also, if you want to specify the audio language of the dvd, add -alang lang to "Extra mencoder parameters", where "lang" is your language code - en for english, ru for russian, bg for bulgarian etc...
Sometimes, if you don't specify the audio language explicitly, certain dvd's will give you the directors commentary instead of the movie audio.
And if you want to specify the subtitle language, add -slang lang - again, "lang" is your language code.

Maybe in the next version I will add this functionality in the GUI...

Vob files.

The program will not recognize VOB files. The drop down menu in the Select av file does not include files of VOB type. I use "DVD Shrink" to extract the chapters or the Movie only from a DVD. I have to use "AviConverter (which does recognize VOB files) first, then redo those with your v.53 ViDrop to get the audio and video the way I want it.

Actually, viDrop recognizes VOB files. If you open windows explorer and then drag & drop the vob file to the green "Input A/V file" field in viDrop, it will recognize it.

The problem is that I forgot to add .vob file extension in the "Select input A/V file" dialog.....

This will be fixed in the next version.

:EDIT
If somebody wonders why the program is called "viDrop": it's short for "video drop" - because you drag&drop videos onto it Smile It has nothing to do with the linux "vi" editor Very Happy
