Hi there.

I'm trying to dump my LD games but I have some problems using it with openMSX. It appears sound scratches, or the image freezes and some more issues.

I follow the next steps:

- Capturing the video with a video capture (Elgato Game Capture HD) in .mp4 (at highest params).
- Captured using the Elgato app or OBS.
- Converting to .ogv container with ffmpeg.exe manually or VLC.

The results viewing with a video player is very good, the sound and the image are perfectly clear, but when I try to use in openMSX, allways appears some issues.

Is there a way to dump easely?, how are dumped the games that are preserved, any guide to do it?.

Thanks and regards.

If you have issues loading the software in the MSX, perhaps the sound is somehow not okay. Did you use any compression or filtering for the sound channels?

Which discs are you trying to dump?

No no, the problem comes with the video, the software load with no problem.
I'm trying with different games.

Some games need extra metadata, did you add it? See http://openmsx.org/manual/setup.html#laserdisc
