Determining vdeo and audio bitrate and audio codec

I am hoping to seed a nice 3 DVD set of Bruce Springsteen in Passaic on September 20, 1978. I took a set I downloaded a couple of years ago and reauthored it.

It looks like I need the video bitrate and the audio bitrate and codec. I read somewhere that G Spot could tell you this. I installed G Spot and picked one of the .VOB files, but it didn't show any of this information.

Am I picking the wrong file, or do I need to do something else? Thanks in advance.

Re: Determining vdeo and audio bitrate and audio codec

the info will be displayed in the main window [i don't have a PC set up right now to give more specifics]...audio should say PCM or AC3 [most likely] with a bit rate [typically 1.5Mbps for PCM, or 256 and up kbps for AC3] ...video should be either VBR or CBR with a Mbps [i think Gspot lists it in kbps, so it'll read a few thousand kbps, if i remember correct]

Re: Determining vdeo and audio bitrate and audio codec

Thanks, AAR.oner, but the problem is that both the video and audio sections on the right of the main window do not contain information. All of the sections have n.a., which I assume means 'not applicable'. I am selecting various .VOB files to get this result.

Do I have to select a different file, or how can I select the whole disk? If there is some other tool that can give me the info, I'll get it and start.

If I use IfoEdit, I get that the audio is Dolby AC-3 at 48Kbps, and can't find any video info, aside from MPEG-2 7210x480. Is this what I need?

Re: Determining vdeo and audio bitrate and audio codec

i ran across that a few times using GSpot, dunno a fix...maybe some else does

typically, AC3 audio is somewhere between 128kbps and 384kbps...i wonder if the 48K yer seeing is reffereing to 48kHz

as for the video info, thats telling you that the files are MPEG2 [standard DVD format] and 720x480 is the frame rate for NTSC format [fwiw, PAL is 720x576]

hopefully someone else can recommend a prog you can use for Windows machines...if you have PowerDVD as a viewer it'll give you specs, as will Nero's Showtime viewer

Re: Determining vdeo and audio bitrate and audio codec

Thanks again, AAR.oner. I grabbed the trial version of PowerDVD and got the info I think I need. Once I get through with checking the master md5 file, I'll start to seed.

Re: Determining vdeo and audio bitrate and audio codec

I wonder if perhaps you need to reinstall it? The VOB you need to use is one of the big ones (the ones close to 1GB). Unfortunately, like Aaron, I'm a Mac user too so I won't be much help for you.
