I've had it with Transcode 360. 50% of the time when watching a transcoded movie it just ends about 20 minutes before the actual ending of the movie. This is very frustrating. I've been dealing with this app a long time now, trying to make it work for myself, and others. I've had it though. I'm tired of all the problems, I'm tried of movies stopping pre-maturely.
My new approach is to use VideoRedo TV-Suite.
With this application I can convert my ripped DVDs to dvr-ms format in about 7 minutes. The movie is NOT re-encoded. No quality is lost in the process. The .vobs are joined. The timestamps are fixed. The movies work beautifully on our extenders.
Other bonuses to going with dvr-ms format is you can actually fastforward and rewind! Using the bumpers on the xbox 360 remotes allows for up to 4 speeds for FF and RW. The triggers allow for 30 seconds jumps. Movies can be paused and resumed. The only thing missing are subtitles.
If people are interested I can write a guide for batch conversion of movies using VideoRedo. If you want to check out VideoRedo, there is a free demo available. VideoRedo supports more than what I am using it for. Movies can be converted to different formats, TV shows can have the commercials removed, and there is a COM interface for those of you who would like to program or script your VideoRedo tasks.
I'm going to leave up all of my Transcode 360 blog stuff, but I just wanted to let you know I've had it with t360 and I am giving up on it. The new MyMovies 3 won't even support t360. t360 has not been actively developed for years. The problems and issues are getting old and tiresome.
