I'd like to have some information about the capabilities of megui to directly convert a .dv (sony) into a .mkv(using of course the x264 codec and if possible a good aac audio compression).

I have already consulted the pages dedicated to the .dv ripping but I have not found the answers to my questions.
I really want to use Megui because it is the most powerful and comprehensive ripping program I know and because it uses the x264 codec which is for me the best video codec.

I know how to rip DVDs and re-encode videos but I have not found how to do so with a DV file. I have failed to find a solution with google that is why I ask it in this post.

The program refuses to process the .dv from the first step, when creating a avisynth script.

When I select the video input, the following message appears :

Unable to render the file.
You probably don't have the correct filters installed

My problem seems to be that this .dv is not readable by directshow, so avisynth cannot open it, and I should try to find a filter reading the .dv
I can't read these files with media player classic which uses the directshow filters (I have installed the K lite mega codec pack), although I can read them with VLC that uses built in filters.
so maybe could I find the proper filter in VLC and import it in Avisynth??

I have already tried to search for such a filter all over the internet but I have found nothing. All that I know is that the .dv video is coming from a sony handy cam.

To conclude:
- is the finding of a .dv directshow filter the proper solution, and if yes do such a filter exist or not?

Thanks answers of your answers

Trying to find and download individual codecs is a fools errand. IMHO, FFDShow is the only way to go. If you already have a recent version of FFDShow installed, you might already have what you need installed.

Also IMHO, the CCCP Codec pack is far superior to KLite.

My recomendation is to completely uninstall all codecs, codec packs, filters and spliters, and do a clean install of CCCP with Media Player Classic. This is now my standard recomendation for EVERYONE, even friends and family of limited technical knowledge.

This might fix your problem right away, or you might have to configure FFDShow. Either way, you correctly diagnosed your problem: you need a DV decoder.

Make sure that you are using the default servers, not check's auto2 one. That is no longer available.

My entire server's DNS was updated late last night, It won't be back until the nameservers propogate through the interwebs to your ISPs' DNS server and it rerequests records.

MeGUI wont check past the first successful hit, and in mine the first in the list is:


which hasn't been updated since 27-Mar-2007

So either take the stable off or wait for another stable release.

If you change the top dropdown from stable to development, it'll use the others. (Admittedly I didn't realize it would happen until I played with it a bit.)

Hey guys, I've been wondering how do I get the vobsubber to work? I run the vob file through it and it gives me a .vobsub file. What do i do to this, so i can mux it into a mkv w/the audio and video?

I looked at using DVDsubEdit & SubRip using .sup files but mkvmerge doesnt seem to recongize .sup files.

I'm at my wits end with this updating business...I got the latest build, I try to update it, and these 13 files never get updated correctly...

I note that they seem to be avisynth plugins...but when I actually was able to get megui working last (months ago) you didn't need to install avisynth seperately so unless something has changed I can't rightly figure out what I'm doing wrong...I tried updating the core manually and put "upgrade.xml" in the megui directory but nothing helps at all. Help please?

you always need avisynth installed It's basically a useless program without avisynth.

That's very odd...something must have been automated somewhere along the line which has since been un-automated that I wasn't aware of. Thanks.

Hi guys !

I'm trying to encode a .ts into .mkv, but for the first time I have a problem.
DGIndex tell me: "No video sequence header found. No data. Check your PIDs."

What's wrong ?

It occurs when your ts contains MPEG-4 AVC stream instead of MPEG-2! DGIndex supports only MPEG-2!!!!!

Is it possible to bring back that little checkbox or perhaps radio-boxes on the queue-page? I often change the after-encoding-behavior and nearly as often I forget to set it back to "do nothing". Therefore my pc shuts down sometimes after encoding while I on the contrary want to work on it ...
I just wanted to bring this little feature back to discussion - with a little addition:

How about giving a default value for the behavior in the settings dialog and a "only once"-behavior in a radio box on the queue page?

Example: I put the default behavior on the settings page to "do nothing" and work with it. If I want to convert a movie at night, I can set the "only once"-radio box on the queue page to "shutdown". After the encoding, the computer shuts down and the next time I start MeGUI, it is set back to "do nothing".

That would IMHO be a great feature!

Anyone else seconding that?

try using the non SSE2 version of the encoder, it looks like the nero encoder is having problems.

^ thnxs.

problem looks like to have resolved as of now. It was related to settings or something I may have messed up somewhere previously. Did again afresh and it seems to have started working now.

I got a question...
How many people develop or help develop (in the sense that they contribute code) to the project?
OS: Paldo (Linux)
AviSynth for Linux, go go go!

i have a problem using megui :

i'm not sure it's related to megui (maybe filters, you tell me) but on certains HDDVDs i don't have the end of the movie after the encode.

here's what i use :
. evodemux to rip the HDVD on my hard drive.
. graphedit (file source async, sonic hd demuxer, sonic videodecoder 4.2)
. avisynth (DirectShowSource("file.GRF",audio=false,fps=23.976,seekzero=false,seek=true).trim(0,166245)
. megui (avs loaded in, with manual correction of the framecount because it showed ~145000 instead of 166245)

i had this problem on 2 HDDVDs, but it was correct for 3 others.

thx in advance guys,
i want to believe...
