MKVMerge always splits files at the wrong time.

I have been using MKVMerge to split STAR DRIVER BD and have had nothing but problems. I use BluRip to demux, and encode. I've done that 3 times now, and still when I input the time duration to 24:14 it always splits at 24:14 for the first episode in the stream. 24:16 for the second episode, and 24:21 for the last episode in the stream. I ran it through AVSP saved a script ran that through Virtualdub to get timecodes and I input those into MKVMerge and that doesn't work either.

I've also used AVIDemux to rebuild frames, and that does not work either.

I've also re-ripped the BDMV several times now and cannot figure out why MKVMerge constantly splits at the incorrect time for all of my files.

mkvmerge only splits at keyframes, it cannot split at arbitrary frames. This is a limitation of formats with P- and B-frames.

Is there any reason why you choose to split after encoding? It's better to do it beforehand to avoid this problem. If you really want to split after encoding you can force x264 to use IDR-frames on the cut points by using a qpfile.

How do I split with BluRip? Should I use MEGUI?

MeGUI cannot be used for cutting or splitting. It does ENCODING only!
