I finally started using the last revision of FU to see if this program had improved and I was once a fierce critic of it, but now I must say that the maker of this software has ironed out nearly all its bugs apart from using a dodgy ffmeg build which gives massive file issue sizes and crashes, but I never use it for 99.9% of my encodes and it was a test anyway. Despite the h264 being quite an old build the quality of the encodes are truly superb with excellent a/v synch unlike older FU builds. The inbuilt Xvid gives great quality too. What a pity development ceased? This program has a great GUI and deserves its praise. Just drops a point for the ffmeg option. Fantastic software!

I should have noted that in my files, the audio/video is not synced when .avi is the output. Like I said, the syncing is fine when the show is watched from the beginning, but when cueing, the audio stream is hopelessly lost. This is with DivX...
WinAmp seems to be able to handle this, I guess it interleaves the file when it's loaded (if I'm using the word correctly)...
If anyone

Solving problems of asynchrony in DVD files:

1) PgcDemux --> Joining VOBs
2) DVDAuthorgui --> File --> Creat ISO after Authoring

or

1) tsMuxeR --> Demux
2) DVDAuthorgui --> File --> Creat ISO after Authoring

or

Single process... Download DVD Shrink
1) Open DVD Shrink -> Edit -> Preferences -> Output Files -> uncheck the last two items
- Split VOB files into 1GB size chunks (recommended)
- Logical remapping of enabled streams.

2) Then click the tab Re-author
In "DVD Browser" find the DVD folder with VOB files.

3) Find the directory with the files on DVD

4) The VOB will appear aggregated into a single file -> click 2x on the file.

5) Double click "Title 1" to create the DVD file structure
The file is totaled transported to the window to the side.

6) In the Compression Settings tab -> Video -> change to No Compression

7) File tab -> click Backup ...
Once you open the window DVD Backup -> Target Device tab -> under Select backup target: leave as "ISO Image File"
Choose the destination to save the ISO image.

I have one problem with FairUse Wizard, which I've had with multiple machines: the fact that the audio is not correctly synced with the video. If I watch a show from the beginning it plays through fine with no problems, but if I try to cue or skip ahead, the audio is hopelessly out of sync, never to be gotten back, and the only fix is to watch it from the beginning again.
Now, the playing software makes a difference-- if I use WinAmp it can be cued or paused, but with DivX-- even the very latest versions, this syncing problem is terrible.
Can anyone come up with a suggestion, perhaps alternative encoding software?
Thanks ahead...

I emailed FairUse explaining my problem of not seeing the correct chapter,not expecting a reply or to be told the problem is at my end.
Well I got a reply the next day asking for the logfile which I duly sent. The following day Fairuse (thats how he/she signs the email) directed me to a French download site to try out a new version of the FU exe file.

I did and it worked! I swapped the exe files around to make sure it wasn't a happy coincidence and tested it on some other dvds. It worked perfectly.
Expect a FairUse upgrade soon.
I'm impressed
