DVD after installing AOA DVD Ripper? What's wrong?
AOA DVD Ripper automatically installs the latest version
of the ASPI driver during installation. If your software
DVD player doesn't support the latest version of ASPI,
it won't work. You don't have to uninstall AOA DVD Ripper,
just reinstall your DVD player software to restore ASPI.
Q11. I have not had any problems
with the process of copying DVD to AVI, but I have found
that when I play these files back that the video is
not in sync with the audio. I did a complete movie and
it was fine, but when I did only a couple of chapters
it had this problem.
There are two solutions.
1) Change some settings in the Settings window.
In the Output page, set output frame rate at 23.976
(NTSC) and resolution at lower value, such as
640/432. In the Advanced Options page, check the Audio/Video
Try it on a 2 minutes piece and see how it plays. If
it still doesn't work, try the second solution.
2) Try remixing the AVI. Load the AVI in to virtualdub
(you can search it on the Internet) and
stream both audio and video (so no re-encoding). In
the audio options you can set an audio delay
(positive or negative) so you can align the video and
audio back in sync.
Q12. Is there any limit about
the DVD format?
No. There is no restriction to the DVD format. But AoA
DVD Ripper is for personal backups only. If you don't
own the DVD's that you are backing up, it is illegal
to copy them, and we are not liable for consequence
due to the use of our product for such purposes.
