    Hello,

    is there a software available to save damaged .VOB-files? I have a DVD camcorder and sometimes I have crc-check errors on the recorded files, I belive it´s due to cheap and maybe low quality DVD-RWs :oops: So I need a tool that has access to the files and can save them in any way, skipping damaged frames would also be a solution.

    Thank you,
    TravelRec.

    There's a program called VideoRedo that has a "Quickstream Fix" for VOB's. Don't know if it will help you, but you could try it.

    What it's normally for is the last VOB on a disk that is an odd size.....it "fixes it" so you can edit it.

    Here's what the help file in VideoRedo says about "quickstream fix":

    This dialog is used to re-multiplex an MPEG2 program stream. It will copy the input file to the output file through the VideoReDo stream processing routines. This means that all the time stamps in the output file, such as PTS and GOP headers, will be re-calculated. In addition, all the processing parameters as specified on the Advanced Stream Dialog will be honored as well. In other words the output file will be MPEG2 compliant file.

    The key purpose of QuickStream Fix is to re-align the time stamps in the output file. Sometimes, video captured from DVB Satellite or sourced from DVD VOB or VRO files may have internal time stamps that are not sequential. When you normally open a file in VideoReDo it will search for these non-sequential time stamps and handle them gracefully. Occasionally it is unable to do so effectively and the QuickStream Fix function will prove useful.
    ----------------------------

    We use this program to edit ads out recorded TV shows....works GREAT!

    Thank you for pointing me on that. The tool is able to read the damaged file until the error occurs and I can save it then. Skipping frames to get the part after the error is unfortunately not possible but anyway - it helps me a lot.
