I have a couple of questions:

1) Should I be posting this to the actual "mkv2vob" forums now? I noticed mkv2vob has its own domain.

2) Someone already asked about converting mkv2vob-converted mpg files back to .mkv. I wish to do the same since I no longer have a PS3 but have a collection of mpg files I have converted. .mkv files *are* compatible with my Oppo BDP-83 Blu-Ray player. It handles stand-alone media files very well and the .mkv format is best suited for my needs. Why not just refer to my source DVDs and reconvert them? Because I gave away most of them. It would be a shame to have the mpgs go to waste.

Is this tool still being developed? It seems anything muxed with mkvtoolnix 4.1 or greater breaks mkv2vob's ability to patch the DTS audio in an MKV for streaming to PS3. It therefore try's to re-convert it to AC3.

I'm having an interesting problem. I use MKV2VOB a lot for converting 1080p and 720p files all the time to avchd or vob to play on my ps3. However I also have some standard def mkv's that I'd like to play on my ps3 but need to convert to avchd first.

However on the standard def stuff when I convert to AVCHD or to file the audio is drastically out of sync with the video. However this is never the case with 1080p or 720p files, even when re-encoded to add subs. I've noticed that it does this with MultiAVCHD and MKV2VOB as well so It's not just a program glitch I'm guessing. Anyone care to shed any light on the situation??

converted using Megui from my DVD's

23.976 fps
using x264
.srt or .ass subs (I switched to .ass after I like the styling better)
aac audio encoded using Neroaac

I basically encode all my anime down using x264 to my hard drive and used to play it on my monitor. now that I have a ps3 I'd like to pop them on the ps3 using avchd on a 128gig usb stick or just stream the .vob/mpg etc.. files using my media server (damn ps3 not supporting softsubs and mkv)

avchd was the perfect mix because I could use the subs without re-encoding from some of my blu ray rips I made.

the only time this audio lag happens is with resolutions other than HD resolutions.

happens after it has to transcode. I had hard subbed a couple of my first encodes before I decided on softsubs so I converted those files without transcoding to file and the audio is fine even from aac to ac3. It only happens when I transcode the video to be avchd compliant or to encode to add the subtitle track. However only on the SD stuff, anything with an HD resolution can be transcoded just fine without any glitch.

That's a rule 6 violation no matter what your purpose is.

Greetings, all. Gents, it's been a while since I did this so clearly I have screwed something up. I had a number of sporting events in HD as mkv's and used mkv2vob to convert them to a file structure I could use to burn to DVD-R or duel layer DVD+r's with ImgBurn. In this case, I have a wedding video I was given as an mkv and want to make a playable disk for my wife.

Well, I have now created two duel layer coasters, as they have sound, but just a black screen for the picture. Whoops. What the heck am I doing wrong?

I am following these instructions, which are for Blu-Ray, but I had thought were interchangeable...
http://forum.imgburn.com/index.php?showtopic=9512

Maybe not? It's been so long since I did this I lost the instructions and used the above because they did seem right.

The actual mkv2vob conversion on the attempted video was made long ago. Back when I knew what I was doing. I just never got around to making the disk.

Also, I just tried something new (an mkv I had on the drive, it's less than 4 gig in size) and had the same result. Black video. But audio is fine.

I pop the disk into my PS3, it plays, but with a black screen.

Any ideas?

Here is the look of the file structure after mkv2vob does its thing (I blanked out the actual file name since it's the name of the bride).

You could try remuxing with tsmuxer, which offers similar features to mkv2vob (but no video or audio reencoding).

If you can't bring either of those softwares to output working discs, I recommend doing a proper encode using the manual in this thread (examples are currently down, sadly).

UPDATE: I successfully created a single layer burn. But then I did another (different title) and it had the same no video issue.

So I am completely confused.

More craziness. I really only have success using DVDfab. But not always. I'm going to look around at programs like PS3Muxer, etc. and start experimenting.

hi all - been using mkv2vob successfully for a long time, but after not using the app for a few months (ran out of HDD space on media server, so was storing up mkv's) I'm running into repeated problems patching the DTS. The first file I tried worked fine, patched DTS and playing on PS3 fine. However, I've tried about 6-7 more DTS files and 1 of 2 things keeps happening. Either it tries to transcode the DTS to ACS (option definitely not ticked) or it says "Patching DTS" for about a second, then switches to "muxing" so the DTS obviously isn't patched.

I've updated MKV tool nix and used MKV merge do re-mux with no encoding on the audio or video, with subs and chapters removed from the file, but the results are the same.

Can't think why this is happening, and since I have a shiny new Home Cinema system, I really need by DTS tracks!

Any help much appreciated!!
