i hadn't used MeGUI in a bit, but when i did I got usual updates along with one that caught my eye, pgcdemux.
i looked in log and see this:
2135 [PGC Demux] added pgcdemux for DVD PGC processing

but my question is where do i access this from?
this is a great tool to implement into MeGUI, but I can't seem to find it. it isn't in the tools drop-down list or anywhere else that I can find.

please guide me, thanks

Are you planning update to Xvid 132?

Sorry for my bad English.
Thanks!

As soon as there is a xvid_encraw which supports XVID 1.3x and AVI files > 2GB I will update it. But I fear that this will never happen.

I have problem.. Xvid 1.3.2 can't create output files bigger than 2 Gb. I've just tested it. How to fix this problem?

I would be very grateful if you could help solve this problem.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

thanks for your message. From the links you sent, I don't think that there
is a problem with Xvid 1.3.x. It's just that in general, AVI 1.0 files
simply cannot be larger than 2 GB by design.

And xvid_encraw produces AVI 1.0 output because it uses Microsoft's AVIFile
API under Windows to write AVI files. But it always did like this (also in
older versions than 1.3.x). AVIFile unfortunately supports only AVI 1.0,
so the AVI output from xvid_encraw cannot be larger than 2 GB.

If you want AVI files larger than 2 GB, you need to mux them into AVI 2.0,
aka "OpenDML", format. You can achieve this by encoding your video with
xvid_encraw into a raw MPEG-4 elementary stream ("-o output.m4v"; do not
use "-avi" option). After encoding, you can then mux the video stream
(e.g. "output.m4v") together with your audio track into an OpenDML AVI
using a separate muxing tool like Avi-Mux GUI:


The resulting AVI file can then be larger than 2 GB.

Some GUI tools can automatize the above workflow. I'd expect that megui
would do this too but I don't know the internals of megui at all. So I
can't tell why megui doesn't work anymore as expected after replacing
its bundled (older) xvid_encraw with xvid_encraw from v1.3.2. My guess is
that the (older) xvid_encraw binary bundled with megui had some custom
modification, which megui relies on. In this case, megui would need to
be updated to work with newer versions of xvid_encraw...

It is basically possible to implement OpenDML AVI also in xvid_encraw
directly. However to do so, we'd need to write our own AVI muxer. This
would bloat xvid_encraw's source code pretty much. And xvid_encraw is
mainly intended to be an example app, so its code should be simple.

Further, because xvid_encraw does not support audio encoding, you'll
still need to remux its output again anyway to add in your audio track.
So I think it's really most convenient to encode to a MPEG-4 elementary
stream ("-o output.m4v") and then remux (and also add audio) with an
OpenDML capable AVI muxing tool like Avi-Mux GUI if you need >2GB AVI.

Best regards,
Michael

It is possible to use xvid 1.3.2 in megui without it being officially supported.
Just replace existing xvid_encraw.exe and xvidcore.dll with files from 1.3.2 version. Also make sure you select 'none' in HVS masking and maybe add -masking 2 in 'custom command line' to be able to use VAQ (it is off by default I think).

But new xvid is some 30% slower than 1.2.1, at least on my set-up.

Bad idea. Old aviwriter.dll are not supported of new build Xvid (xvid_encraw.exe)

Doesn't look like anyone has reported this bug yet.

Starting with rev 2144 I have had trouble with the audio portion of WMV files using one click processing.

I get the following error:

Code:
---[Error] [5/1/2012 12:01:59 PM] Exception message: starting job failed with error 'Required file 'G:\To Process\Test - [0].WMA.unknown' is missing.'
---[Error] [5/1/2012 12:01:59 PM] Stacktrace:    at MeGUI.core.gui.JobWorker.startEncoding(TaggedJob job)
---[Error] [5/1/2012 12:01:59 PM] Inner exception: null
The file is there, but it looks like the ".unknown" is being mistakenly appended to the end of the filename?

Happens with all the .WMV files I have, but not other formats (eg .mkv or .mp4)

After muxing the audio with the avi, that 'error' will disappear.
You can erase aviwriter.dll if you use xvid 1.3.2.
It is not needed.

Download MeGUI (latest stable - http://sourceforge.net/projects/megui/files/latest) and extract it to a new and empty directory. Does it still not open?

Try to watch the processes e.g. using ProcessExplorer while starting it. It happened to me once that the .NET compiler kept starting over and over.

I keep on getting an error while trying to encode Planet Terror. No other movies give me any problems. I've tried re-ripping the movie with dvd decrypter and dvdfab. Makes no difference.

This is the error portion of the log

I've tried different crop settings, nothing changes it. Same error every time. Using the latest development version of megui with all updates (this happened in older versions as well).

I cant see anything suspicious in ProcessExplorer... is there a way to check if my .NET framework is installed correct?

@ Penecho:

"Nothing suspicious" means that the MeGUI process is just terminated right after starting, without spawning sub processes for a while? Explain as detailed as you can what you discover.

I do not see a specific error message in your log - and that is quite strange. Usually there is a line with the exit code or something like that.

Can you please disable the usage of the 64bit x264 in the MeGUI settings and give this a try?
