    Hey there,
    I've some questions as to what to do after ripping a movie I've bought yesterday. How can I convert these files to a mkv file with a resolution of 1280 x 720 (720p)? Can you give me some tips, for example what tools I need except from AnyDVD HD?

    Hope you can help me!

    Thanks in advance,

    There is no "one size fits all" tool, sadly.

    I followed the instructions, and used my own (albeit limited) video editing skills, along with instructions/links to instructions/instructions on what to google for, from here and am able to, fairly reliably, backup my HD-DVDs and Blu-Rays to x264.

    If someone honestly comes in here and walks you through every step, I'd love to see it... the way I'm doing is awkward, convoluted, and hardly worth the time IMHO, but I've not looked into other methods. If you're looking for an "HD-DVD Shrink" type program, it doesn't exist... yet :D

    Good luck!

    Hi hotdog,
    thanks for your post. Of course I'm not looking for a one-click-tool. ;) I was rather looking for some kind of tool packages, including all (!) the tools I'll need to convert a ripped HDDVD to 720p!

    Regards,

    Hey again,
    here's a short tutorial I found.

    Does anyone of you know if this works?

    It works as well as any of the guides; it was the one I used as a launching point.

    This is another good one. Honestly, they're all semi-out dated, it's kind of odd, hehe.

    if you have nero installed you can import an avc encoded hd dvd and recode it to 720p. You can do this with or without the nero hd plug-in. HOWEVER the audio does not work, just the video gets recoded. have not tried any of my vc-1 encoded movies yet.

    Interesting. How do you go about getting the audio added on then? Any steps you normally take? Or just the old fashioned fun of VirtualDub :D?

    got it to work on a trailer evo file usinf the above method plus, eac3to and yamb. tough to tell if the audio was in sync do to the trailer having a lot of fast motion and maybe 1 second of speaking where you actually get to see lips moving. trying the full movie now, only another 3 hrs before vision is done then i need to put the audio in. will let you know. you DO need the nero hd plugin for eac3to to work though.

    didnt work, tried a bunch of tools but cant get the audio into the feature mp4. for some reason when i try and convert the ac3 audio file into any format (mp4, mp3, wav) it is only 13 minutes. but if i play the ac3 directly it is the full length so i know the original is fine. keep playing though. will report if i get a working process.
