From a previous thread I explained how I recovered
TV shows from a DVD disc that was bad i.e.
either scratches on the surface of the DVD or
a DVD recorder that is faulty and not closing the
DVD correctly. See HERE


Now I will explain how I burnt it and kept the caption info intact.
The caption information is very important to me because
this is a French animated TV show 'Spirou' and I'm not fluent in French.
I've discovered (the hard way) through trial that the app
'ffmeg' mustn't be used to resize the frames of video
because the caption information is located at the top of the frame
and it gets destroyed if the frame is resized!!!


I dragged the Spirou TV show to a folder.

I launched the program pdvdsrab
(available on the forum HERE and explained HERE)
and filled it in as follows.



Click the execute button.

This program now creates a folder with two folders in it.
The audio folder you disregard. The other is named 'VIDEO_TS'
and it contains a combination of the video and control files.



Next I set up pburn to burn a DVD . This is easy.
Insert blank DVD in computer tray. Launch pburn.

In the pburn preferences make sure that your temporary
work area has lots of space.

Just add the folder named VIDEO_TS to right side of window.
Choose Burn Video on left side of window. Now click on big burn
icon to start the burn.



Some notes:

This burn example just involved one TV show.
Normally you have several shows that you want burnt to one DVD,
but I've found that this is difficult (but not impossible!!).

Because the mpeg video files that you have created from the bad
DVD disc are non-standard i.e. they have non-standard header
and tail code, there are problems Rolling Eyes Sometimes I can burn
multiple shows and sometimes I can't. Perhaps there
is a way around this problem such as opening the .mpg file
with a video editor and then do a 'Save As' to make the mpeg
'standard'.

I have read that text editors can change header code of video files,
but it's too difficult for me. Anybody with experience with
video files should post here to help explain.

It could probably be solved by just edit the ffmpeg command line when burning in Pburn? See the Advanced tab (in the burn options window).
Code:
ffmpeg -i \"01_spirou.mpg\" -aspect 4:3 -target pal-dvd 101.mpg
should be edited to
Code:
cp \"01_spirou.mpg\" 101.mpg

It was about a year ago when I did this, so my memory is
hazy....
but I used the command

Code:
ffmpg -i video.mpg -target dvd ../tmp2/video_converted.mpg


I remember that it took forever Crying or Very sad and the
frame size was much bigger(doubled) and the quality of the video
was poor i.e. the motion of people wasn't continuous
like frames had been left out. Maybe if I had told
ffmepg the frame size I wanted the results would
have been better.


...and I don't think the captions remained but it's so long ago
I can't be certain.
