A: This is not a policy on our part. It is now required by Gracenote (the company who owns and operates the CDDB service) in order to access their new CDDB2 database.

Q32: What's the difference between CDDB and CD-Text?

A: CDDB, short for Compact Disc Database, is a licensed trademark of Gracenote, Inc. It is a database for software applications to look up audio CD (compact disc) information over the Internet. This is performed by a client who calculates a (nearly) unique disc ID and then queries the database. As a result, the client is able to display the artist name, CD title, track list and some additional information. The database is used primarily by media players and CD ripper software. If a CD is not recognized by a media player or CD ripper it can be added to the database if you fill in the names and artists etc. in a media player.

CD-Text is an extension of the Red Book Compact Disc specifications standard for audio CDs. It allows for storage of additional information (e.g. album name, song name, and artist) on a standards-compliant audio CD. The information is stored either in the lead-in area of the CD, where there is roughly five kilobytes of space available or in the Subchannels R to W on the disc, which can store about 31 megabytes. The latter areas are not used by strict Red Book CDs. The text is stored in a format usable by the Interactive Text Transmission System (ITTS). Utilities exist to automatically rip CD-Text data, and insert it into CDDB or freedb. CD Text information can be encoded on a CD during mastering or replication. Most mastering facilities will encode CD Text free of charge, while CD replicators may charge extra for this service. CD Text information will include CD title, track titles and artist's name. However, be advised that only compatible players can display CD Text. These may include car systems, home Hi-Fi systems, some DVD players, portable CD players, etc. Not all CD/DVD players are CD Text compatible.

Q33: What is VIDEO_TS?

A: VIDEO_TS, short for video transport stream, is one folder of most video DVDS. When you insert a video DVD into your computer, you can open the DVD and view the contents just like a folder on your hard drive. Most video DVDs have two folders in the root directory - AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS. The VIDEO_TS folder contains all the DVD's video data and playback information, including .VOB (video object) files, .IFO (information) files and .BUP (backup) files.

Q34: I just want to backup my DVD on my PC. What is the best choice of the output format for me to choose? I just want to play it on my PC and I would like to get the smallest size with better quality.

Q46: I can only generate the default slideshow. Why is that?

A: This happens when slideshow.swf can't recognize the content of the source file. The source file must be free of errors, or it'll generate unrecognizable data. Make sure the source file is constructed in exactly the same way shown in the tutorial.

Q48: What can I do with this generator?

A: You can make watermark-free animated GIFs to yourself or your website.

Q49: Why is the timing of my GIF incorrect?

A: Some videos uploaded on YouTube are rendered in the wrong manner and thus causing the time of the video to be off. We suggest playing with the time and previewing the GIF before making it. For example, if what you're trying to create starts at 25 seconds and ends at 35 seconds, try putting 27 seconds as the start time and 37 seconds as the end time.

Q50: How can I make my GIFs generate faster while maintaining quality?

A: Every option except for "speed" will make GIF creation slower when you crank it up. However, you can make all creations faster if you minimize the length of the original video, and if you use videos whose size is similar to your final GIF. So don't upload a full HD video, and then expect a 200x200 2 second clip to generate quickly.
