Description Kai Damm 2011-09-18 16:45:12 UTC
With transcode versions after 1.0.7, I cannot rip a DVD if I want more then one  audio track. I use media-video/dvdrip, container format AVI, video codec xvid.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert a DVD with a multi language movie.
2. Run media-video/dvdrip.
3. Create a new project, scan the drive and rip the suggested track.
4. Change to "Transcode" tab.
5. Under "Audio options", press "Multi" and select second source track as first target track, and first source track as second target track.
6. Press "Transcode" Button.

Actual Results:  
After a while, the process fails with an error message from avilib stating "file has no video output"

Expected Results:  
Successful transcoding of video and second source audio track, subsequent merge of first source audio track.

Dvdrip transcodes the second target audio track separately and then merges. The merge exits with a failure, but the actual problem is the first step: It creates an AVI file without a video track. Dvdrip does not catch the error, but stops on the unexpected resulting file.

This is the transcode command line and output, when run on its own:

$ transcode -Y 52,0,50,0 -A --progress_rate 25 -D 0 -w 1035,25 --progress_meter 2 -i /home/kai/dvdrip-data/Matrix/vob/001/ -y xvid -N 0x2000 -Z 720x406 -M 3 -x vob -a 1 -H 10 -o /home/kai/dvdrip-data/Matrix/avi/001/Matrix-001.avi -f 25.000

[decoder.c] cancelling the import threads
[transcode] encoded 0 frames (0 dropped, 0 cloned), clip length   0.00 s

The same with "-a 0" works. The text output until "libmpeg2 acceleration: mmxext" is the same. Then transcode spams the console with "[audio_trans.c] critical: Sorry, only PCM audio is supported for processing", but the resulting video file seems okay, including the DVD's first audio track.

Comment 1 Kai Damm 2011-09-18 16:48:49 UTC
I forgot to mention that audio format is AC3 (passthrough) for both audio tracks (between steps 5 and 6).
Comment 2 Kai Damm 2011-10-15 10:35:58 UTC
tcextract seems to be broken. Commands are from transcode's output:

$ tccat -i "/home/kai/dvdrip-data/Matrix/vob/001/" -t vob -d 0 -S 0 | tcdemux -M 1 -a 1 -x ac3 -S 0 -d 0 > audio1.ac3
[iodir.c] warning: left out 3 directory entries

The above command creates an AC3 file with only the second audio track. If I add the next step (the first of two tcextract commands):

$ tccat -i "/home/kai/dvdrip-data/Matrix/vob/001/" -t vob -d 0 -S 0 | tcdemux -M 1 -a 1 -x ac3 -S 0 -d 0 | tcextract -t vob -a 0 -x ac3 -d 1 > audio1.ac3
[iodir.c] warning: left out 3 directory entries

This creates a 0-Byte audio1.ac3.
Comment 3 Samuli Suominen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2011-12-06 07:51:59 UTC
How is transcode-1.1.7?
Comment 4 Kai Damm 2011-12-06 10:08:44 UTC
No, same problem with transcode-1.1.7.
Comment 5 Pacho Ramos gentoo-dev 2015-03-21 16:24:57 UTC
Are you sure this is a transcode fault and not simply dvdrip breaking because of being stalled for some ages? (and then not being adapted to the recent tools) :/
