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
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.
