Hello. I am new to dvd editing in general and mydvdedit in particular.

I am trying to use mydvdedit to correct the aspect ratio. Video is filmed in widescreen. The quicktime movie shows up 4:3. mydvdedit appears to be the fix. I follow the steps, but when asked to select aspect ratio, mydsvdedit quits. Have tried many times, with same result.

It was suggested to me that I repair the permissions on the mac, using system utilities. I did that, but it only seems to delay the quitting by a nanosecond.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
Mike

Send me your DVD files (.IFO and .DUP, not the .VOBs files)

zip them and send the zip file to jerome <at> <siteweb name without www>

Thank You Jerome.

I thought I had this one solved, but apparently not. So I come back to you. I have to ask you to explain in a little more detail. I have not been able to find the dvd files. Where do I find them? (the IFO and DUP) And, what do I do to zip them. Sorry to be so ignorant, but this is all new to me.

Thanks again

Mike

In the folder of you DVD, you should found a VIDEO_TS forder.
- Copy it on your hard drive
- Open the new VIDEO_TS folder and delete all the VOB files.
- Go back to the parent folder
- Select the VIDEO_TS folder, click left and select "Compress <<VIDEO_TS>>"

You should now have a VIDEO_TS.zip file, send it to me.

I used MacTheRipper to rip a movie, and then used myDVDEdit to change the beginning of the DVD to jump to title 1. Then saved it.

How can I open it in iMovie? So I can pick and choose clips, so that I can add music to those clips? Since I used iMovie (version 6) to open the VIDEO_ST and iMovie didn't see it (it was gray).

Thanx
Windsor

iMovie cannot edit VOB files.
You have to extract them with MpegStreamclip.

Please search in video dedicated forums to get your answers
