    I am by background an editor, but I have joined a start-up for TVOD.

    We are getting content from some Asian companies and will deliver to some on demand providers.

    I got some specs which I understand. However, the first few titles have come as formatted DVDs.

    Here are the specs:

    Codec: MPEG 2 Long GOP
    Container: MPEG 2 Transport Stream

    Video Bit Rate – 8-20 Mbps CBR
    Audio Codec – AC3 (2 Ch)
    For Dual Audio  use AC3 streams:
    Stream 1: English 5.1
    Stream 2: English 2.0
    Stream 3: LAS 2.0
    Audio Sample Rate
    Frame Rate
    Color Sampling
    1 second of black at head and tail

    Am I correct that we’ll need some additional software/hardware solutions in order to take from a DVD (with VOB files) and provide these specs?

    I know there are solutions like Digital Rapids or Telestream. But is there a way to do this just for one or two titles?

    I need to rip the DVD, and then stitch the files together.

    I may be Way Way off on this. But I hope you can tell me what I am missing so that I can convince the other people here that we need to invest in a hardware solution.

    Thanks for the reply. I’m working on using that now.

    I have copied the DVD as a folder containing VIDEO_TS AUDIO_TS to my desktop.

    So now I can just use Streamclip with those settings? I guess it’ll be two exports, one for audio and one for video.

    I was concerned that I would have to go to ProRes and then back out to m2v and Ac3 streams.

    Anyway, I’m trying things now, but if I am missing a key, let me know. Thanks,

    I am trying “Convert to TS” in Streamclip menu. Is that correct?

    I assumed I would be sending the client a m2v file

    I’ve never worked with the .ts extension.
