Default RatDVD support

I'm sure many of you have heard by now about possibly the future MP3 for movies - RatDVD.

It is a video as well as a music encoder that takes an entire DVD (if it's protected, you must break it with some other program first) and compresses its video and audio into one single file - with a RatDVD extension - that maintains the subtitles, menus, soundtracks, etc.

The video encoder is based on XviD and the audio is a virtual AC3.

To tell you the truth, I still haven't found a RatDVD file so I can't test it with BSPlayer. I mean, who knows, it might even work (RatDVD officialy works with Windows Media Player 10, but I don't know how).

Anyway, can the authors comment here whether BSPlayer officially works with RatDVD files and if not, will it work with them in the future?
Remember that not only must it support the RatDVD file's video and audio, but the special DVD features too, which, once again - unlike DivX/XviD - are internal.

Just so you know, RatDVD's site provides an open code for video players' programmers to implement in their programs in order to support it.

If this is truly the next big thing, surely you want to be among the first to join the wagon.

RatDVD's site claims BSPlayer IS supported!
However, I can't seem to see the video!

Is it officially supported? Please comment!

Hi,

I just made a try with ratDVD. It works almost perfectly with BSplayer. I found a couple of problems, however:

- When you start a ratDVD file, BSplayer sends an error message about 'unknown file format', then some other popup error messages appear. I just have to ingore these warnings, and the movie starts playing. This is just what is written on the ratDVD homepage. I think BSplayer should handle ratDVD without any eror messages by now. Windows Media Player works perfectly.. :-(

- The movie is shown in am "ActiveMovie window". This means that you cannot view the film in fullscreen mode, the window border, heading and the taskbar is alwas visible. However, the picture is in perfect fullscreen mode on my TV when I use two screen in "theater mode".

- ratDVD takes over the full control, so most of BSplayer's menus and buttons do not work.

- An older 1.0 version of BSplayer displayed the movie sometimes a bit slowly. There are no speed errors with version 1.3.


I agree that ratDVD is a great invention. I think BSplayer should pay more attention to fully support this new format.

I don't know what to tell you.
I've installed RatDVD and tried to play a RatDVD movie and all I could hear in BSPlayer (and other players, for that matter) was the sound.

In general, I can see stuff like DivX & XviD without a scratch.

Hi,

Are you sure that the ratDVD file that you want to play is free of errors? Did anyone else managed to play it? Have you tried several ratDVD files, or just this one?

Maybe you should check your settigs at "Options/preferences/video/video rendering...". Wrong overlay settings can cause that you hear the sound but no picture. Although your DivX and Xvid files work well, ratDVD might need different settings. I'm not an expert, so I'm not sure. (My BSpalayer video rendering settings are: 1st, 2nd, 4th options are checked.)

I hope it helps, because it is worth. For me it seems that ratDVD has better video quality than DivX or Xvid, not to mention the sound.

Good luck,

Coix

Can you provide a link to a sample file?
I've never saw a ratDVD file before, so I can't test..
If you can provide link I can see if something is possible to do to make it more compatible..
