I´ll try to find a way for me to get directshow stuff (ffdshow, haali media splitter) run under crossover/wine and mac os x environment. But I am not so hopefull.
Never ever would I recommend to use parallels or vmfusion as those need to have an installed windows.

Good news for mac users by the way: tsMuxerGui is now available in a native version for mac os x. But of course I will continue to build menu based BDMV´s using multiAVCHD.

That's why I added it as option, so MacOS users (and those who don't have codecs/splitters) can continue using it with mplayer. It is half a solution, but in fact works great.

Thumbnail images are generated within +/- 3 seconds of the chapter jump point (5min) which is much better than mplayer + its crashing.

***

About the splitter - I'm not really sure if it is needed for framecapture, so AVC/VC1/MPEG2 decoder should suffice if you're not planning to watch these m2ts files using directshow.

The steps for generating thumbnails are: AviSynth script using Directshow source M2TS file (audio disabled) with ImageWriter and x264 to execute the script. Without the audio you may not need a splitter... I'm not really sure, though.

This extracts 5 thumbnails to use the 5th one with XMB:

Code:
directshowsource( M2TSFILE, audio=false, fps=XMBmtsFPS(M2TSFILE) ).trim( STARTFRAME , STARTFRAME+5 ).ConvertToRGB24()
ImageWriter(DEST_PATH, 1, 5, "jpg")
ConvertToYV12()
I'm adding support for those external/built-in chapters so they will be used in XMB instead of 5mins default.

About tsmuxerGUI for macOS... you still can't use it for MOV files, right?

At least I have to write out my final cut timeline as two files. The separated video and audio files are well accepted by tsMuxerGui.

But of course: your programm is much better ... I love it and use it ... but I think I´ll do it without xmb (as wrong thumbs could confuse people).

... mmh ... ok .... what AVC/VC1/MPEG2 decoder are recommanded? I would to some tests.

I've just tested the last version 467 with Directshow option, It works fine without error box message.
Thank you this issue.

I'm waiting now your add support for external/built-in chapter thumbail in xmb menu (if I understand well) :-)

hey deank, is there a program that will allow me to shrink a large m2ts file to mkv x264, which is smaller in size, but no loss in video quality, so i can use multiavchd to make a multiple title disk. I noticed some downloaded mkv files didnt work with your program, they werent compliant. Your program is the next "thing", i wish i could help you in your builds and i will donate

Unless you get your files with proper width (720/1280/1440/1920) you can't use them with multiAVCHD.

You can use other programs as mkv2vob or RipBot264 to reencode your files to compliant version.

I have no idea. If you install it and try to play a m2ts file does ffdshow engage? What options did you use while installing it?

i tried to play a m2ts file with media player classic under crossover after I installed ffdshow (activated all options during installation progress). It played in a very stuttering way, but it did play.

Do you see FFDSHOW icon appear? I really can't help with this as I don't have MacOS installed.

Can you try this:

paste this into x264-test.cmd and replace path_to_x264 with your real path

Code:
"C:\path_to_x264\x264.exe" --bitrate 14000 --keyint 24  --min-keyint 1 --ref 3 --mixed-refs --bframes 3 --weightb --subme 5 --partitions p8x8,b8x8,i4x4,i8x8 --8x8dct --ipratio 1.1 --pbratio 1.1 --vbv-bufsize 30000 --vbv-maxrate 30000 --qcomp 0.5 --merange 12 --threads auto --thread-input --progress --no-psnr --no-ssim --mvrange 511 --aud --sar 1:1 --output %1.264 %1 
pause
paste this into test.avs and replace "your_mts_file.mts" with the real file name:

Code:
directshowsource( "c:\your_mts_file.m2ts", audio=false, fps=23.976 ).trim( 1, 5 ).ConvertToRGB24()
ImageWriter("c:\", 1, 5, "jpg")
ConvertToYV12()
And then try to drag test.avs to x264-test.cmd to see what will happen...

Just done another film, using customised 'jump points', with 7 scenes, but multiAVCHD still created 12 'chapters' (thumbnails)! The last 5 are useless(ie. nothing happens when selected) Does it always create 12, or am I missing something?

Cheers, Dave.

ps. tried both directshow and the standard way!

It was not implemented, yet. If you took time to browse the last pages of the thread you would have known that.

***

Build 468:
* External/embedded chapters are used for chapter thumbnails in XMB style menu

I did some tests with ts/mkv/m2ts files... Please let me know if something is wrong.

You will see information in the progress bar about current chaptermark used while generating menu.

I've tested build 468, works fine with external chapter and chapter thumbails creation in xmb menu.
Thank !

I've a suggestion for menu button :
You use a "arrow" graphic button in your menu, It is avialable to use a frame surrounded the picture title (same thing for thumbail chapter) ?
It for a cosmetic better presentation, because arrows are not very easy displayed (specially in chapter selection = to small size).

And just a remark about button in the selection chapter, when I test with PowerDVD, if a use the arrows key on keyboard, the navigation buttons are OK. (like remote control with standalone player)
But if I use the mouse for selection button (in chapter thumbail element), I saw more arrows buttons than chapter thumbails created.
I try to explain :
With 4 chapters jump creation (4 thumbails created correctly on one line), with keyboard When I go to down of th line chapter, I return on title selection (OK).
But if I use the mouse, I can see another arrow button to point on nothing (blank thumabil without link navigation).
You what I try explain ?

I got an email few days ago with the same questions.

No, at this point I can't implement any other type of navigation.

About the mouse - I know - it is been this way since the beginning and it affects all types of menus (classic/thumbnail/xmb). multiAVCHD is primarily to be used in hardware players and there you can't use a mouse and everything is fine.

If I find some more time I may try to take care of it.

***

I was under the wrong impression that tsmuxer supports only HH:MM:SS format for chapters.

So in build 469 you can use either HH:MM:SS or HH:MM:SS.MLS (milliseconds)

You chapter files may contain either format, but NOT MIXED.

It's me another time.

A question about "poster image" :
For this picture, what is the size needed for poster image ? or you make a automatic resize ? (horizontal orientation only ?)

It would be better if the input image is 16:9.

Wow ... when using external/embedded chapters even under crossover/mac thumbnails in XMB menu are accurate (+/- 1 sec). But you have to integrate 00:00:00 as first chapter in your txt. I used for example in my 1:14 HDV clip: 00:00:00;00:00:10;00:00:25;00:00:40;00:01:02 ... and mplayer does a nearly perfect job.

Perhaps some people confirm this by using external chapter an disabling directshow option ....
