Here's the situation. I have a PB G4 and iMovie HD. I made a movie with my digital video camera. I needed the tape for something else, so I used iMovie to burn a DVD (that works in my computer's DVD player). Now, I want to import it back into another iMovie project. I downloaded HandBrake after reading another thread like this. I ripped the file to .mp4 at 100% constant quality. Did it 2x, and each time it gave the following type error: QT unable to parse -2048. The file that HB ripped is 6.2 gig. QT just says, "QT cannot read the file". I downloaded FFMPEGX, but it's pretty complicated, and I'm not sure how to use it. When I tried to place the .ts file into the program, it said it couldn't read that type. So, here's my question. How do I rip this DVD to .mp4? Others on the HB forum were having a similar problem that they weren't able to address. One thought I had was instead of ripping the file at 100%, maybe I could tell HB avg bitrate or some other way of defining the file size. I'd like to do it with as near accurate transfer as possible. Any suggestions? Please?
