Don't forget to use the --timecode-scale parameter. Otherwise it doesn't matter what you write in the timecodes file/etc, everything is rounded to 1ms by default.

Me too... but doesn't perfection include human limitations.

Arn't we looking for perfect 'human' solutions... a cat may see better and demand higher standards and perhaps in a million yrs time humans will have the capacity to appreciate movies with 1000 FPS, 100 megaPixel resolution and 128-bit colour detail.

Surely, mathematical solutions that go beyond human abilities to tell the difference... also fall into the realm of imperfection.

I see you released new test versions. I tried the one from 02.01.

According to the changelog:
* mkvmerge: bug fix: Rewrote the timecode application
code. Additionally force the "previous cluster timecodes" that
libmatroska uses to the current timecode. This seems to get rid of
libmatroska's assertions about the local timecode being to
small/big to fit into an int16. It also seems to get rid of some
of mkvmerge's errors about the packet queue not being empty.

if should now be possible to rewrite timestamps on mkv files created with GDSMux which previously failed most times.

I tested it on Ratatouille Blu-Ray. Steps:
Merge all movie files into one (copy /b ....)
Remux with TSRemux
Mux to MKV using GDSMux
Add audio stream and rewrite timecode with MKVMerge

Last step failes with:
The file 'D:\Ratatoille.mkv' has been opened for writing.
'die' called: common.cpp/safememdup() called from file src/common/common_memory.h, line 91: malloc() returned NULL for a size of 381332 bytes.

check (if you can playback that file until the error) if the glitches around ~40 mins are still present. if it doesnt work the way you did, then check it with copy /b and then demux the video stream with xport and remux it with mkvmerge (so dont use tsremux and gdsmux) please.

btw. where to find these test versions?

The resulting file has only 6kb so the error is at the very beginning.

Demuxing and remuxing gives async audio. It is sync at the beginning and end (I think) but not in the middle of the movie, so that's not an option.

Hi,
would it be possible with the upcoming release to force the Cues Section at the beginning of the file?

thanks

can someone please help me with an error I've been getting. I'm using MKVMerge GUI v.2.1.0 'Another Place to Fall' and the file plays fine in windows media player

Hi,
Don't know whether this has been asked before, since this is such a big thread to go through.
I'm now using mkvmerge GUI to cut a sample from a file, e.g. I want the part from 300s to 400s, when I split with mkvmerge, it returns 3 files, and only the one in the middle is what I want. So I have to delete the other 2 files manually.
Is there any way to prevent generating the other 2 parts what I don't want?
Thanks.

for me its in sync (or not that much desync that its already noticeable) with xport so long until these glitches occur and then it becomes noticably desync

No. Cutting out single parts is not what the function is designed for.

OK thanks.
Then I think I have to find another application to do this for me.

@Mosu:

How hard would it be to support .yuv files like these:
ftp://ftp.ldv.e-technik.tu-muenchen....quences/1080p/ ?

Quote from #matroska:
shouldn't be hard to add raw support
after all the size of each frame is fixed
all that's needed is the pixel format
the rest is known (width and height)

it would be awesome to add .yuv files to .mkv and simply play them, to compare x264-aq encodes with the original,

You can try AviDemux.

Maybe you can put in a feature request though Mosu is an ardent advocate of the KISS principle and vehemently avoids creeping featurism
which can ultimately destroy an otherwise simple but elegant piece of software.

Perhaps I should add my own feature request for "vertical signalling".
AR signalling works well for full screen but an 800x448 encode signalled with 1.7703 will display at 793x448 (window mode) instead of 800x452 .
Of course, you can avoid the "horizontal shrink phenomenon" by always over encoding the height... eg, 800x464 and all's well !!!

I guess it's more of an MKV spec issue !

Mosu, any chance of VC-1, DTS-HD High Resolution and DTS-HD Master Audio support in the future?

Something I just noticed, dunno if it's a bug or what. I demuxed MPEG-4 part 10 ES from Basic Instinct Blu-ray. Demuxed .avc plays fine itself but when I add it into .mkv it takes alot longer for wmp11 to load that .mkv comparing to other backups. When I seek it also takes forever for playback to start again. Also rainbow frames alot. If I mux that .avc into TS, everything works fine.

Same thing with Ratatouille (Blu-ray), Revolver (Blu-ray) and Million Dollar Baby (HD DVD). If remuxed with gdsmux you don't have the rainbow frames but the mkv is unsearchable and will not load in mkvmerge for rewriting timestamps

Have you tried the latest mkvtoolnix beta build? It has fixed the failing timestamp rewriting for me. See here:

Yes, does not work with Ratatouille or Revolver. Not tried with Million Dollar Baby yet.

Even if I don't rewrite the timestamps the rainbow frames are introduced when just running thoose titles through mkvmerge
