Let's get a quick and simple question out of the way, which if possible could save me a bunch of time: is there a way to get an entire season of RvB in one big chunk off the DVD, without buying any additinal software?
Ok, time for the technical help.
I already know how to download the individual episodes and convert them and get them on my Ipod. That's easy. What I want is a nice, big file entitled "RvB: Season X", and have it play as one, long movie. I don't want to scroll through 100+ files.
I have no other ideas than the one I just tried, which follows.
I have Pinnacle Studio 12 and a video capture card. I put Season 1 into my 360, hooked it up to my capture card, and it 'Play' and 'Capture' and left it alone. I stopped the capture after the end credits, and I then (using Pinnacle) converted the raw video files into mpeg-4. I synced it to my Ipod, and at first, I thought i was a genuis. It played perfectly, just like a DVD player....right up until 20 minutes in, about where Church assigns Caboose to guard the flag, the video suddenly speeds up, like it's in fast forward. The audio continues like nothing happened, but suddenly the video is blurring past.
I tried to fast forward to a new part, but when I released the FF button, it suddenly skipped forward in 30 minute segments to 2:30:37. The video file is 1:16:32. The video continued at a fast forwarded pace, somwhere around Episode 9, while the audio was still around Episode 4.
What the hell?
Technical help, ideas on how I can get entire seasons onto my Ipod, any of that would be etremely helpful. Posts that have you verbally abusing my request for help would not be.
Thanks in advance.
