I have had success ripping DVD's and converting them to a format that TVersity can serve out to mediashare. Here is what I did.. 1. Rip DVD (dont include 5.1 audio it wont work) (I use dvdfab) 2. merge the vobs using vobmerge (http://evilmaster.net/index.php?page=tools) into one vob. 2. Convert to a mp2 mpg file using ffmpeg and the below command: ffmpeg -i combined.vob -target dvd -aspect 16:9 -b 4096k -bufsize 4096k -acodec mp2 -ab 192k converted.mpg Note: This will only work when ripped with AC-3/1 audio only. If I rip it with AC-3/5.1 audio the movie will not play when served.. If anyone can tell me how to fix this I would appreciate it.
