How to Convert Video_TS Folder into One Video File

I usually download movies from the net and view them in my pc or in my home theatre. The movie files that I download are usually in .avi formats. Well, such files are great as far as pc is concerned as you’ll have the whole movie in just one .avi file. Moreover, it’s easy to store and consumes less space too. But unfortunately my home theatre doesn’t play .avi files. I have to convert the file in to Video_TS and Audio_TS and then burn in the form of a DVD for viewing in my home theatre. But if you are a lucky guy who has a home theatre which plays Divx files then you don’t need to go through all this conversion mess as it will play the .avi file without any problem.

If you have a particular movie in a DVD then it will usually be in two folders, i.e., Video_TS and Audio_TS. You might like to convert these folders into a single file to play it in your pc and to store it even more easily instead of copying both the folders in to your pc. There’s a software known as AutoGK which makes our job easy. Just follow the below steps to convert the folders in to a single .avi file using AutoGK:

1. To start with click on the Browse icon in the Input File row and select the IFO file of the Video_TS folder that points to the full movie. It usually contains the same digit as the largest amount of VOB files in the folder.

2. If you selected the right IFO file, AutoGK will display the playtime of the selected movie. If the DVD has more than one main track then you need to repeat the step and merge the files later on.

3. Check/ Uncheck the available languages and subtitles.

4. Now, select the output file and size for the video that will be created. The output file size can be selected by picking a predefined size that ranges from 1/4 CD (175 MB) to 3 CDs (2100 MB). Several additional options are available for DVDr sizes. The user can also select a custom size if he likes but most should find a suitable one among the predefined sizes.

5. The output file is simply a link to the .avi file that will be created.

6. You can also configure several optional parameters in the advanced settings. This ranges from selecting an output width to a selection of the video codec and output format.

7. Lastly, add the process as a job to the job queue and click on the Start button to encode all jobs in the queue. You can also add additional jobs and let them run overnight. Once the conversion process is done, you’ll get a single .avi file.

    AutoGK is a good program; however, I am still trying to get the quality my AVI files to be as good as I get them in CloneDVD mobile. The problem for me seems to be pixilation when I convert my DVDs to AVI files. Using the same resolution and aspect ratios, I get a better picture with CDM. If anyone can point me to a good AutoGK tutorial, I would really appreciate it.

    Just buy a $35 Philips DVD Player and it’ll play Divx & Xvid files directly. Lots of other cheap DVD players will as well.
