well h264info will keep this header.

if you could make a program to figure out these values by process the stream that would be excellent, but something like that is beyond me at the moment. im sure it certainly would be useful to figure out what settings hd-dvd/blu-ray are encoded with too.

I havent tested your version but I did some research and 1080p files work on ps3 if:
- number of reference is 4 AND number of bframes is 0
OR
- number or reference frames is lower or equal to 3

Maybe this would help

thanks i already figured that our out, its related to the number of refrence and bframes. too many reference frames puts it over the 4.1 level limit and the ps3 only plays upto level 4.1 even with level spoofing.

This program detects the h264 level and "supposedly" change it,

http://ambamo.free.fr/temp/mp4/H264_Level.exe

The creator hasn't work a lot on it so changing fails a lot, but I think detection is ok

I hope it helps

One request. if the stream is not valide instead of transcoding it to mpeg2, I would prefer reencode it with x264 in 4.1 profile. I have a command line for PS3 (with the build 669i pulldown).

I get a black screen even if I say YES to mpeg2 transcoding



if I understand what your program do is this :

#1 - extract the mkv
#2 - h264info top patch to 4.1
#3 - ffmpeg : somethign like that :
ffmpeg -r 23.976 -f h264 -i input.h264 -f ac3 -i input.ac3 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -f vob output.vob

right ?

dts

past version converted DTS 1500 bitrate to AC3 332 bitrate..so I used Tranzcode, then softencode to make AC3 640 bitrate. Does the latest version produce a larger DTS bitrate? Thanks again.

this will take a very long time on most pcs. i made it use mpeg2 because its fast and filesize doenst really matter when streaming.

i will check out the problem with that mkv

Latest mkv2vob would always transcode the second MKV part of the file to MPEG-2, but not the first one

So, an Enemy of the State 720p.001.mkv and 002.mkv

mkv2vob would only remux 001.mkv very quickly, but would always transcode 002.mkv

Any ideas?

Update 1: Have just ran mkv2vob 1.02 on the same files and performs as expected without transcoding. I presume something has changed in 1.03 when it tries to determine whether the file is playable on the PS3 and for some reason decides it's not and transcodes.

I am also trying to convert mkv into vob for play on ps3 through a fat32 hdd. Is it really better to split the .mkv rathe then the .vob? I had trouble finding a prog that could split a .vob. I used HDBDSplitGUI and it did split the .vob into 2 parts smaller then 4gb but the second part would not play on ps3 (or on the pc i dont think either). So i'm trying mkvmergegui to split the mkv first and then run mkv2vob on both parts.

I think mkv2vob 1.3 fixes the previous problem with a split .mkv as long as you hit no to transcoding to mpeg2 or whatever.

having to split the mkv and then run mkv2vob on both is a bit of work but it still is much quicker then encoding an mkv into wmv.

There is a way to convert a 29.97fps to 23.976 fps without the sound been too slow ? I try to convert a movie to 23.976, the video is OK, but the sound is like a robot speaking

survivant001, i have tested the file you mentioned and there is no problem playing it.

it is playable so no matter if you click yes/no it is remuxed to vob h264/ac3 and plays perfectly on the ps3.
If you have firmware 2.10 highlight the file, click trianagle, click start from beginning.

@3r1c

is it possible to have a command line interface ?

mkv2vob -i input.mkv -o output.vob (or .m2t)

the human intervention is really limited.. so it can be done par command line, and it will be easier to use in a script..

Does the new version always use 100% CPU on 1080p files...& do you have to encode to mpeg2 with 1080p?
Thanks

mkv2avc?

saw another program called mkv2avc
http://forums.maxconsole.net/showthread.php?t=87199.

does the same thing as this program, but it seems it was never updated and it might be older now and can't do 1080p.

seems you can rename the .vob to .m2ts (avchd) or .mpg correct?

but that wont allow the file to be ffwd or rwnd though right?

so that is pretty much the only limitation right now with mkv2vob and .vob .m2ts .mpg files remuxed from mkv using this prog.

Also, I am still wondering what the best way to split a file into parts 4gb or smaller for use with a fat32 ext hdd on ps3. Seems the couple other ppl here that were using a fat32 , just split the mkv file first using mkvMergegui and then make a .vob of both.

is that still the best way? isn't there anyway to split the .vob, .m2ts or .mpg? once already remuxed from mkv.

the program is great, great updates , especially the latest update which allows you to say no to transcoding if you have split the mkv. This is relatively fast even if you have to split and seems to be right now the best way to watch mkv on a console (ps3 or 360) as encoding mkv to wmv takes a very long time.

once again all that needs to be done is fix the ffwd, rwnd problem though that is probably on sony's end and then of course find a way around the fat32 hdd 4gb limit (also sonys fault). shame hfs+ doesn't work as it does on 360.

Hello,
at first Thank you very much for the new update of this program. But I have a problem. I have a mkv file which is 8GB big. I splitted the file with MKVmerge to 2 x 4GB Files.
After that I used MKV2vob. The mkv file needs to be transcoded to mpeg2. But when mkv2vob finished the file which was before 4GB big is now 6,68gb big. Is that OK so?

The way this program was intended to be used was to convert to a file on your computer hdd (windows NTFS) and then streamed to the ps3 via local network, this way filesize does not matter, an 8gb file will play fine.

I would be forever grateful to you 3r1c if you could add AAC support to your program.

I have a few MKV files that are in 720p, here are their specs:

Resolution: 1280 x 720
Framerate: 23.976
Video Codec: x264 r667 3918kbps
Audio Codec: AAC 5.1 VBR 320 kbps
Aspect Ratio: 1.778:1

Whenever I try to use your program to convert this MKV file I get an error saying "Unsupported Audio Codec: A_AAC"

All the MKV files I have tried are giving me this error. I actually thought that by updating my PS3 with the 2.10 firmware it would now be alot easier to play MKV or AVI or other files, but I guess I was wrong...

Oh, and for everyone that would like to split their files into smaller pieces, I have the perfect solution for you, its called "The File Splitter", download it here: http://www.dekabyte.com/filesplitter...plitter131.exe

What this program does is let you take ANY file and split it by any size you want, and then at the end it make a small "merge" file, so when you split your files and transfer them to your external hard drive, just put the small "merge" file in the same directory and run the "merge" file. It will put all the files back into one piece without messing up anything.
