Topic: Converting Mkv to avi.

I have some MKV files as well, I can figure out how to choose one audio from the 2 available tracks, but when I try to add subtitles to the transcoded file, they never show up. I don't know what I am doing wrong. MKV, like most modern container formats (.mkv, .ogm, .mp4), have the ability to store ...

Normally, you can gather the x264 and the settings used in making an x264 video by using a hex editor and look for the header in a video. Unfortunately, the mencoder's x264 output didn't contain the revision number of the x264 used although it did state that the core is the same as the current build...

Where did you come up with the conclusion I was transcoding to an h.264 video? I didn't. It was just "For example, when encoding ..." If there were no error messages within the text in the Console Window after a failed encode, then there is no way anybody can help debug this problem. We have the in...

[0.5.1-r9] Mplayer not stopping when told to stop

In the 0.5.1-r9, iianm, MediaCoder has a bug where if you cancel transcoding with an x264 backend with mplayer as the source, mplayer tends to continue consuming your processor cycles in the background.

Load the Console Window (hotkey: F6) and try an encode. If there was any detailed error messages to be had, it will be somewhere in that morass of characters. For example, when encoding with the x264 backend + avs, x264 will fail and state that it needs the video's resolution to do the job. In that ...

You don't want to use an MPEG-4 video codec in your output? Choose something other than XviD, DivX and x264. Those three are MPEG-4 codecs - XviD and DivX is MPEG-4 ASP and x264 is H.264/MPEG-4 AVC. Try Theora or WM7/8/9. I can't think of any good reason to specify "anything as long as its not MPEG-...

MP3 96 kbps can be noticeably metallic in sound. I suggest trying MP3 or Vorbis at 112 kbps. Unless you intend to burn to play on a DVD player, in which case stick with MP3.

Vorbis will sound better, even at 96 kbps, but can be more challenging to use - AVI won't support Vorbis, only MKV or OGM.

What x264 version is in the mencoder?

Huang, is your mencoder's x264 using at least x264's r614 code? I have a video that needs mplayer's pullup filter to deinterlace properly because I can't find any AviSynth or VirtualDub filter that will do the job. And I would also like to use x264 r614 or above, due to its better multithreading cod...

Try going to the "Video" tab on the bottom left and set the "Codec" to "Bypass". MediaCoder should then only create the audio file.

Alternatively, you can extract the audio first, compress them, then process the video alone, and finally merge the audio and video streams as one.

Depending on your needs, you might have to calculate the desired bitrates by hand if you did this.
