Sefy's Complete DVD Backup Guide v2.6
Using - DVDx - VideoServer to CCE Standalone - Direct from DVD

This program can encode to VCD/SVCD and also output to AVI and use external plugins, in this example, it will be used to access the DVD movie directly from the DVD drive to encode the movie using Video-CD format.

Step 1a - Select "Open DVD root" and then select the drive which contains your DVD movie, and select the VIDEO_TS folder and press the OK button when you are done.

Step 1b - DVDx will automaticly choose the longest running program on your DVD, click on the selected title and press the "Select " button, and this will choose that specific title. (* NOTE: Sometimes the special features are longer then the actuall movie! *)

Input Settings step - After you have selected the currect title, set the "Output Frame Rate", and the "Subtitle" and also here you can choose which Audio Track to use from the pulldown menu in the " Audio" settings, when you are done, press the "OK " button.

Step 2 - Press File and then the "Select Output" option, and select the location of the file and also type the name of the filename.

Step 3b - Press on the "Premiere plugin encoder " pulldown list and select "Video Server" then press on the "Plus settings" to set Video Server. Also, make sure you remember to click on the "Whole" button so ALL the frames from the movie will be selected, or you will end up with a movie that contains what you last did with DVDx.

Step 3d/3e - On the "Frame Server" menu set the "Server mode" to "AVIWrapper" and in the "WRAPPER Server Settings" set the output "Filename" location (using the "Browse ") and keep the same name (3d) in the "Audio" / "PostPro " and "General" disable all the settings so they are grayed out ( 3e).
