I was trying to put an m2ts file into multiavchd and it was not going to keep the LPCM. It took a long time and when it finished, the file had no audio; just video

here is what it was saying in the multiavchd


[17:07:04] Detected video: ID#4113:V_MPEG-2 1920x1080, fps=29.970
[17:07:04] Encoding [LPCM] audio to AC3...
[17:07:04] eac3to refused to convert audio!
[17:07:04] Trying to demux audio...
[17:18:46] Parsing to NicAudio/aften (avisynth)...
[17:18:48] DELETE EXCEPTION: Should not touch file! (c:\multiavchd\_temp\multitemp-20140312\beating heart today show audio.m2ts.t2.ac3.mpa)
[17:18:48] Encoding to AC3 (second try)...
[17:18:48] All tries to demux/encode audio failed!
[17:18:48] Total of 2 tracks found in this file.
[17:18:48] Creating clip and playlist info (tsMuxeR)...

I also notice now that either multiavchd will pass thru the lpcm or it will fail to demux and when it finishes, the file will have no audio, just video

so now it is all or nothing.

I am using the latest version

So there's no video with pcm at all that MultiAVCHD has demuxed and transcoded to AC3?

Really?

I wonder if that is because the audiostream could not be demuxed.

I don't know what the problem is (if any) with the last file you posted. Both MultiAVCHD and the older tsMuxer it uses, have issues. I think a lot of people would like the creator of the tool to update it, but as I understand the forums didn't hear from him for a long time. Let's hope he is okay.

With media that don't work I'm afraid you have to do things manually. This can be quite some work though.

keep in mind that some files pass thru the LPCM 5.1 fine and others don't. I can't figure out any explanation for this
I have mostly 29.97 frame rate files . This doesn't make any sense

Yes, things can appear quite "not logical" sometimes. Of course there is a logical reason to the issue but sometimes we just don't know.
Now this is a leap in the dark, but can't you try to replace the tsmuxer.exe in MultiAVCHD's tool folder with the most recent one? Just a thought, don't really expect it to work...

Just download the last TSMuxer version, drag&drop it where the old one is (C:\multiAVCHD\tools on my pc) and accept the replacement. But copy first the old one, you may need to put it there again.

I did replace the tsmuxer in the avchd tools but when I tried a file, it did the same thing eac refused to convert and the when it finished, the file had no audio
I tried another file with lpcm 5.1 just now and that file passe thru quickly with no problem

I thought replacing the tsmuxer was a great idea but it did not change anything

I would love to try other methods as well

As a last resort, I believe you can replace the problematic title (without audio or with compressed audio while you don't want the sound to be compressed) with BDedit ;

I don't know how it works but I know it can do many things and you could maybe find some tutorials.

As far as MultiAVCHD handling things automatically concerned, I'm running out of options to.
The only way for some media is do demuxing, transcoding and maybe remuxing again manually. There are great, free tools at your disposal but you have to put in some effort.
Of course in each step there will always be issues and it takes time to get the hang of things.

Where do you adjust the placement of added subtitles in multiAVCHD?

Everything worked perfectly for me adding a set of subtitles (.srt) but when I view the blu-ray in my Oppo the subtitles are too low. I can just barely see the upper tip of the the second line. I basically need to move them up a whole line.

Apologies of this has been covered extensively. I honestly tried to search to find out about this my best but I felt like I was looking for a needle in a haystack.

Thanks in advance.

I never tried to create sup from srt with multiAVCHD but all I can say is that Subtitle Edit does it very well ;
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=162721
Open your srt, chose export, Blu-ray sup, try some settings, especially bottom margin and line height, then click on export all lines and open the sup in multiAVCHD as external subtitle or mux it into ts with TSMuxer and open the ts in multiAVCHD.

Did you take a look @ the Subtitles & Audio tab?

There you can adjust about everything for text-based subs and preview the result in a window.

Thanks for responding.

Yeah, I might be blind, but I only see sizing and a slider for horizontal alignment... Nothing for vertical alignment. Is it possible?

EDIT: I found it. It's called Offset, right next to font size. It's default to 45 and when I set it to 100 it worked.

A lot of tv-sets have overscan. The picture is zoomed into for a few percent and projected. At least with old analog tv's this can be quite significant.
If your tv is a modern flatscreen maybe there is this option to disable overscan and see the full picture. Also various auto "zoom" or "screenfill" functions of widescreen tv's can have a negative effect.
