Unofficial Haali Media Splitter bug tracker

In this topic I would like to document known bugs in Haali Media Splitter.

I encourage everyone to post detailed bug reports here in this topic. Please include a sample file whenever possible.

If you want to cut a sample from a large file, then use DGSplit:
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=143963

Good sites for uploading sample files are:
http://www.mediafire.com

Download:
Version 1.11.96.14 (2011-03-03)

Bugs in all recent versions:
  • MKV's with DTS-HD MA created by mkvmerge (mkvtoolnix) are not bitstreamed correctly by ffdshow (stuttering). Sample.
  • AC3 inside MP4 container gives error "MP4: could not find dac3 box" with files created by QuickTime. Sample.
  • Files with a large number of tracks (>32 ?) won't load.
  • Configuration can't be accessed through the 64-bit splitter (rundll32.exe splitter.x64.ax,Configure).
  • The splitter does not link matroska files if opened using AviSynth or Direct264. See this thread.
  • (MPEG-TS) DTS-HD audio is not recognized. Sample (has 5 audio tracks! one DTS-HD, two DTS, two AC3).
  • TrueHD detect issue: post
  • AC3 detect issue: post

Solution for the DTS-HD problem:
You can fix your file by remuxing it with MkvToolnix (version 4.4.0 build 20101115 or newer is required). This will add the "Default duration" element to the Matroska header for the audio track.

I meant the version "11/01/09".

And since I have read really-bad things about the very-latest releases, I didn't even give a try to them.

This has been tested on a clean install of XP SP3.
Well, bug #2 has been fixed in version 1.10.120.15. That's progress, I guess...

I like that TrueHD is supported now but why is DTS-HD MA disabled with the latest 1.10.120.15 version? DTS-HD MA worked in the old version 1.9.42.1 but TrueHD not.

Which container? MKV or MPEG-TS? Do you have a sample file? That could be helpful for Haali.

I'll bet this is the problem:
Code:
Format profile                   : QuickTime
Codec ID                         : qt
....
Writing library                  : Apple QuickTime 7.6.0
com.apple.quicktime.player.movie : (Binary)
If you want to use Haali's splitter, remux the file with mp4box and it should work fine (otherwise use mpc's splitter).

Yep, I know, but if Gabest splitter can, so Haali should too

In my opinion the bug is that the best mkv splitter out there it's embedded with other splitter when many people are looking just for a better (than Gabest's) / best mkv splitter ! especially now with windows 7.
So since most of the bugs are related to the other embedded splitters and to the installer I think it will better for everyone to release the mkv splitter separately and fix the Explorer integration (thumbnail feature) for mkv files (not working with the current version and, at least, Windows 7 64-bit)

Just a thought !

I'm all for healty competition in the form of one upstream splitter for each format, and an infinite number of forks from that are for specific niche's.

I hope that Haali will open the source of the splitter, or at least work on mpc-hc's splitters instead so we can have the best of both worlds in a single splitter.

It already is possible to use only part of the Haali Media Splitter functionality. With for example the K-Lite Codec Pack you can select which splitter gets used for each container. You can even change your splitter preferences at any time post-installation.

Thumbnails work fine on Windows 7 without Haali's shell extension. There are just two limitations: 1) ffdshow must be set as the preferred decoder for H.264, and 2) thumbnails will always show the first frame of the video.

It is possible to use Haali's shell extension with recent versions of the splitter. Just install the old version and manually replace the files with the ones from the latest installer. You can extract them with 7-zip. But keep in mind that it was removed for a reason. It can cause instability.

That seems like a lot of work just to get working thumbnails. I would be happy with just a fully functioning splitter.

how can I replace the mkunicode.dll? even when starting windows in safe mode it says its being used by another process and therefore cannot be replaced.
