    I have 3 DVD's that Handbrake/iFlicks both crash at the same point. There is a small glitch in the video that makes both programs stop the encoding. Has anyone run into this before? I figure I have to do some kind of re-encoding of the original files in order for this to work, but I am at a loss here. If anyone has any advice/fixes I am open...thanks!

    Are you trying to encode from disc (the optical drive) or are they already ripped to your hard drive? If ripped, is it just a clone ie VIDEO_TS folders?

    Sounds like there could be some 0:00 length cells on the DVD. Do you have the program DVD2oneX? I use this program along with Fairmount to create a clean VIDEO_TS file when handbrake is not encoding correctly.

    Are you trying to rip? If so, try mac the ripper or rip it.

    I already copied the DVD's to the HD, and these are not copy protected. I was able to just drag/drop the VIDEO_TS folder from the DVD to the HD (I have tried MacTheRipper and RipIt as well and both yielded the same results in handbrake/iFlicks) I have also tried DVD2OneX as well and no change. Very puzzling....and frustrating.

    Try using Handbrake version 0.9.2, instead of the newest, 0.9.4. If you google it, you can find it.
    Good luck!

    Was there an audio folder along with that video folder. Not 100% sure but think that folder needs to accompany the video folder.

    When you used DVD2OneX did you find any zero length cells?

    No, there is only 1 cell.

    I appreciate everyone's help in order for me to get this DVD ripped, and right now I am back to copying the original DVD to the HD and noticed that the DVD will not copy correctly. I first tried to use the superdrive and it failed, then my additional dvd burner and it failed. Only after I use ripit or mactheripper will the dvd copy (it doesn't have protection), so I am pretty sure now the DVD is at fault. I need a new copy of this DVD, which will be super tough as its a concert rip from a show I went to back in 2003. I was almost positive this DVD copied fine, but apparently I am wrong. Thanks to everyone who chimed in with things to try, unfortunately, its the media.

    Just to let everyone know, I found out that 2 files were not copying in finder for whatever reason (no scratches on the disc). So I went to terminal to copy the files and it worked perfectly! Now trying the encode again, and crossing my fingers!!

    Word to the wise - when finder fails copying, try terminal! :D

    WOO HOO!!! After I copied the files via terminal (that failed when using finder) Handbrake encoded the video 100%!!! MacTheRipper/RipIt both would copy the DVD fine but handbrake would bomb out right at the end every time...but when using terminal to copy the files, it worked. I am not reading into this as I am just happy its done!
