VLC transcoding from a source with errors

From: "Robert A. Kelly III" 
When you are actually playing back media, VLC handles errors really
well. You can play a scratched up DVD and you may notice some glitches
when it hits a bad spot, but it recovers and continues playing. I have
seen VLC play some discs that other media players refused to. However,
if you are trying to transcode from a disc that is scratched, or a
source file that has some form of corruption, it seems to transcode
until it hits an error and simply stops. Is there any way to get the
more resilient behaviour when transcoding, so that it will finish even
if there are glitches in the finished output? It would be better to have
a complete video with a few glitches, than to have only half a video.

=============================================================== From: wes ------------------------------------------------------ I may be talking out the wrong orifice here, but my version of VLC has a "convert/save" menu item. Perhaps this could be helpful to you? -wes

=============================================================== From: "Robert A. Kelly III" ------------------------------------------------------ That is precisely the feature I'm using. But the issue is that if the source is damaged, it simply stops when it encounters and error and the output file only has half of the original video. But the same file can be played all the way through if you are actually watching the video. There may be some glitches, but the video keeps playing. I'm looking for a way to get that same kind of resiliency when using the convert/save feature.
