I'd like to test that too, but I dont know how I can mux MPEG1/2 into MKV on Windows. Could you please explain that? I tried GraphEdit but my MatroskaMuxer doesnt like to eat MPEG vid...tyia.

Aah! OK, thank you. I missed it.

Edit: Tested .m2v->mkv->mkv. Worked. Seeking is awesome, even in a big file (like 2-3 GBytes)

Did you notice that the MPEG files are smaller when put in MKV ?

RealAudio (A_REAL/COOK) inside mkv doesn't work. AFAIK there is only gabest's RealAudio Decoder that can handle this, but it connects only to MEDIASUBTYPE_COOK, while haali's Splitter provides only the wFormatTag.

Is there any special reason writing this new Splitter as a Source Filter instead of a Parser/Splitter? IMHO a Splitter would be more suitable, since it allows to connect from any available Source (File/HTTP/XCD..)

Does anyone have tested the new experimental Haali filters (HaaliSubtitler & HaaliVobsubDecoder) ??

I tested them but without success for me...

I finally got around to test the new splitter ... It looks promising.

Anyway, a few remarks:

- while the files play fine from the beginning, they start to stutter really badly after searching
- switching audio takes a long time and doesn't work at all sometimes (silence ...)
- the internal subtitler eats cpu for breakfast ... it also doesn't work with zoomplayer (produces garbage), but this is probably an issue with zp's internal switcher
- jumping to chapters works perfectly

I tested with several mkvs, all of them with several audio and subtitle streams, the latter were vobsubs. I registered both HaaliMatroskaSplitter.ax and HaaliVobsubDecoder.ax and unregistered the plain Matroska splitter and VSfilter.ax

I wouldn't consider the splitter as stable yet, but it looks promising :-)

just as a matter of interest - has the development if this splitter stopped? That would be quite sad ...

Stopped ?

If all goes well, this splitter will allow us to introduce the matroska menue system. Haali is modifying it heavily to be able to handle segmented files, being a primary condition to support our menue system.

In the meantime, robux4 is about to finish his DVDXtractor tool. We released an alpha version already, but not here as robux4 is currently not allowed to post on Doom9, and there is no sense in having a thread when the main developer cant post to it. Mosu has started to implement muxing of the XML files outputted by DVDXtractor into mkvmerge.

All in all we estimate that the whole process will take another 2 - 3 months, and hopefully until the end of the year ( maybe Christmas ) matroska files can be made and played with menues .....

Interesting, but why isn't robux4 allowed to post here? If it is any of our business, that is..

I'd imagine it's this.

good news, then. Since there were no new posts for a long time, it just looked like this nice splitter has been abandoned ... good to see it's not.
About this alexnoe vs. koepi vs. robux ogm-war: well, they should just calm down a bit ... If they were to discuss this non-issue in a pub, I'd happily buy them a beer :-)

Some news from Haali in Matroska-Devel ML :

Quote:
I think it's time for more public testing of my new code, the binaries are available at http://haali.cs.msu.ru/mkv/.new/ .There are two mkx.dll avi.dll and slitter.ax, all of these need to be registered. I've also prepared an installer that does just that: MatroskaSplitter.exe. Since splitter IDs are hardcoded in VSFilter, there is a new build of VSFilter with new splitter support.

This is a complete rewrite from scratch to have better design and better maintainability. DShow interfacing was completely separated from actual file parsing via COM interfaces, so one common DShow code can be used with many file formats. I've implemented AVI support in one weekend using that framework as a proof of concept. AVI splitter is not registered by default but the DShow filter will open avi files, so you can play with it in graphedit, or do something evil like copy /b file1.mkv + file2.avi file3.mkv

Major new features:
* Multisegment files support, you can produce those by running copy /b file1.mkv + file2.mkv multiseg.mkv
* Files with multiple video tracks are supported, streams can be switched via tray menu.
* Pre/post chapter commands, framework is in place, but only one command is implemented so far: NextSegment is executed at the end of current segment.
* Internal stream switching with WMP9/10 support, can't be turned off due to the way it is implemented, so you'll need to use my tray icon or WMP :]
* Probably some other stuff that I forgot about.

Known issues:
* Switching from a segment with sound to a soundless one doesn't work.
* Switching some video stream formats results in a crash in ffdshow, e.g. mpeg4->huffyuv. I didn't try debugging this yet.


I expect some minor bugs to show up, hopefully nothing major will happen. I'd appreciate it if you try this new code and report any problems andfeature requests either to ML or to me privately. Thanks in advance.

some comments from a short test:

* Loading of file seems to take longer time than Gabest's filter
* After opening 700MB file (DivX, two AAC tracks, SRT, VobSub and SSA subs) and playing with stream switching a bit the filter tends to freeze on seek. Very hardly reproducible on exact spot, but consistent (exactly the hardest bug type to eliminate...)
