Create a DVDrip like aXXo
CHECK THAT THIS TORRENT HAS BEEN UPLOADED BY ME, IF NOT SCAN ALL THE FILES. (PRINT THIS GUIDE)

Axxo, don’t we all love him? let’s face it, the guy puts hundreds of movies up for us all to enjoy, and the quality is always spot on. I’m a big fan of aXXo’s, but I have one criticism about him/her, people like aXXo don’t want to share their secrets on how to do the movie rips, they want the fame all for themselves, and to be honest that’s not right. P2P and communities are meant so we can all share ideas and info, you do it, i do it, so why not aXXo?, I’ll tell you why, people like him think their some kind of celebrity, well, to be honest, he kind of is when it comes t o the world of P2P, but only because he/she refuses to show you how they do it. I asked aXXo a few times how he/she does their rips and was always ignored, but I found out anyway because after all it is the internet, and if you look hard enough you can find anything. The purpose of this guide is so that everyone can make quality rips and not just rely on one or two people, imagine the amount of quality films coming through if we all used this method, it’s as simple as going to a DVD rental store or site, getting the DVD and creating a perfect 700mb DVD rip for the rest of us to enjoy. Just remember that you’re not the only one who downloaded this guide, when you’ve made your new AVI file and make a torrent for it, please include [PAKG] in the torrent name, this is the name of this guide, people will know when they see that, that you have read the guide and the download will be of the same quality that axxo’s is. Remember people, help each other out in the comments section, if someone’s stuck on something and not clear, give them a hand if you can, it’s what P2P and Communities are about.

Anyway, enough talking, let’s get to it. You will need 4 bits of software, these are included in this guide. 1. 2. 3. 4. DVD Decrypter AGK AVImux_GUI (installation instructions at end of guide for this one) K-lite Codec Pack (if you already have a codec pack installed you can leave this one out)

paKKo
Step one: Installing the software Pretty easily done, just click, execute and follow all the instructions for the individual application, AGK will need to install various types of compressors, this is essential as it’s AGK which does all the file size compression.

Part 1 – Ripping the actual DVD to your Hard Drive

Step 1

paKKo
Open DVD Decrypter, the program should look similar to the image above. Source is the original DVD that is in your DVD Driver. Destination is the folder where the files will be stored. Make sure you select a folder on a hard drive that has enough storage space as the folder will be approx 3.0 – 4.3 GB in size.

Step 2

Place the DVD that you want to rip in your DVD Drive. Now select your DVD Drive from the source drop down box. As you can see, mines a LG HL-DT-ST. Label is what the DVD is named on the Disc. Region is what regional settings the disc is set to. As you can see, the disc that I’m using is region free, as it list all the regions. This disc also has no RCE protection. This DVD also doesn’t have a copyright protection system on it either. If your disc has the region set to one system and RCE Protection is set to yes, you can remove if by selecting the “Tool” menu, then clicking “Settings…”

paKKo
The setting dialog will then appear. Now tick the “Remove Macrovision Protection” check box, this will remove the Macrovision flag of the VOB files on the disc. RCE Protection Region should be set to the region your drive (or standalone DVD player) has. You can find the regions below.

DVD regions Region 1 - 1: U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories Region 2 - Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including Egypt) Region 3 - Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong) Region 4 - Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean Region 5 - Eastern Europe (Former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia Region 6 - Peoples Republic of China Region 7 - Reserved Region 8 - Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.) Step 3

Click the small folder with the magnify glass icon. The save dialog will then appear. Select a folder that you want the DVD to be ripped to. Remember to make sure you have enough space available on your hard drive. Step 4

paKKo

You are now ready to start the decryption process. Select all the files in the list as seen above (By pressing Ctrl + A). The small status at the bottom of the program tells you how many files are selected, which in this case there are 12. It also tells us the total size of all the files that are selected. This is a good indication on what space you will need available on your hard drive. Once they are all selected, all you have to do is click the big button on the bottom left of the program (The button with the DVD disc, Green arrow and Hard Drive icons). Step 5

paKKo

The program is now extracting the sectors, now all you have to do is wait until the process has finished. In other words, you can have a break for a while.

When this process is finished, this dialog will appear. Now go to the folder that you selected as your destination. All the files should be in the folder that you selected. You can test the files by opening your favourite DVD player software and testing the movie. Part 2 – Converting the DVD to AVI (Ripping)

paKKo

Open AutoGK, it should look like the one above. This program is very simple to use. Basically what is going to happen is: • Step 1 - Select an input file and output file • Step 2 – Select audio track and subtitle track • Step 3 – Select output size • Step 4 – (Optional): advance parameters • Step 5 – Converting Let’s get started then.

Step 1 – Selecting the Correct Input File and Output File

paKKo

Click the folder icon next to the input file box. The open dialog will then appear.

Now locate the destination folder that you used in Part 1, when you were using DVD Decrypter. Open the “VIDEO_TS” folder. The files should look something like the above. Now what we are going to do is change the view of this folder. This can be done by clicking and selecting the “Details” option.

Now that you have changed the view, the open dialog should look like the one below.

paKKo

The input file that we are going to select is an *.INO file. As you can see from the above image, there are 3 *.IFO in the folder • VIDEO_TS.IFO • VTS_01_0.IFO • VTS_01_0.IFO

paKKo

The way to determine which file to select is by the file sizes of the files. Think of VTS_01.IFO as a set. This set has 5 VOB files associated with, this set has the largest file sizes in it, and so we select VTS_01_0.IFO as the input file. Now click the “Open” button. • VTS_01_0 • VTS_01_1 • VTS_01_2 • VTS_01_3 • VTS_01_4 Next, click the small folder button next to the “Output file:” text box. The “Save As” dialog will appear. Save the file as whatever you want to call it and in the location that you want.

paKKo
Step 2 - Selecting the audio and subtitles

As you can see from the image above, the program lists the audio tracks that are available and the subtitle tracks that are available. Select the language that you want your DVDRip to have. You can also rip the subtitle tracks also. To do so, just tick what subtitles you want. As you can see, I selected English AC3 6ch. I always choose the 6ch option over the 2ch. 6ch is surround sound and 2ch is just your basic left and right sound. Step 3 – Selecting output size

When creating a DVDRip most people tend to have a file size set to around 700mb. So place a check in the “Custom size (MB):” radio check box. Then type in 700 in the box next to it. So the outcome of the DVDRip will be 700mb. You can change the file size, the more MB that you add, generally the clearer the DVDRip will be.

paKKo
Step 4 – Advance Parameters

Click the Advance Settings button like above to show the Advance options dialog.

For “Output resolution settings” I usually select Auto width. For “Codec” I personally prefer XviD over DivX, it seems to produce a better image quality, so choose XviD. For “Output audio type”, I normally leave it set to Auto. If you are ripping music videos from a DVD, i suggest you select “Original” as it would produce a lot better sound quality then normal. For “Output format” select AVI. For subtitle options, I don’t tick any of the boxes. Click the “OK” button to save your settings. Step 5 – Converting Now that everything is setup correctly, you may begin the converting process. Click the “Add Job” button, to add it to the Job queue.

As you can see, the job is now in the Job queue.

Now all you have to do is click the Start button to begin converting.

paKKo
It will take a while for the converting to be done, so be patient, and once you click start in the AKG window, at first it will look like not much is happening, but make sure you keep an eye on your explorer bar (or whatever it’s called) here’s a pic of it:

See that part circled in red? That’s AGK telling the other parts of the compressors it installed to get going, this will appear approx 5 mins after you click start, can be longer, can be shorter. it will crush the movie about 2 times before it will be ready, you’ll also see a couple of CMD windows, open these up an you’ll see AGK compressing the frame rate, But to be honest it’s better to just leave it now until the movies finished being made. Note: the first time you use this method, after you click start in AGK you will need to keep an eye out for that logo circled in red, because it’s the first time it’s been used it comes up with a welcome screen, just click it and then it will continue to do the movie, once you have done that, you will never have to do it again. Just leave it a while and then when the movie is done (you’ll know because that logo circled in red will go) you can delete all those files you extracted with DVD Decrypter.

Before we finish there is one fial part, hopefully you won’t have to use this but you might do, ever seen those avi’s where the picture quality is great but the sound is out of sync? That’s where AVIMux comes in. Once the conversion process is all done, check your new AVI, 99 times out of ten the sound will be fine, sometimes though it can be out of sync, if it is don’t worry, it can be fixed in a matter of minutes, here’s how. Firstly:
http://www.alexander-noe.com/video/amg/ for some info on the program you want it. If not just follow the steps set out below.

paKKo

step 2: extract the zip into it's own folder (i just called it avimux gui) step 3: click exe file step 4: drag the avi file into the top section step 5: highlight it step 6: click generate data source from files step 7: 2 parts appear video and audio, select audio step 8: on the right hand side it says delay (ms) enter 180 (this will be different for every movie, you may need to play around with this rate a little until you get it right. step 9: click start, select a save as file name and location step 10: click save, wait around 60 seconds - full in sync copy of Avi file

Note: this can be used on ANY avi file, so if you’ve downloaded one that isn’t in sync, just play around with it in this until you got the sync right.

That’s it guys your all done. Just remember that you’re not the only one who downloaded this guide, when you’ve made your new AVI file and upload the torrent to it, in the file name just put [PAKG] this is the name of this guide, people will know when they see that, that you have read the guide and the download will be of the same quality that axxo’s is. Remember people, help each other out in the comments section, if someone’s stuck on something and not clear, give them a hand if you san, it’s what P2P and Communities are about. Happy ripping and let’s see some more great rips out there!
