I got this idea when I saw you have the checkbox option "Always use simple blocks" under the "Settings" tab.
I can certainly do this. I've been planning to move the "settings" tab to its own dialog because it's growing with each release. In such a dialog I'll also add an input box in which the user can set default options which will be added to the command line.

2) Another thing i regularly do when muxing files to mkv is naming it in the "file/segment title" textbox under the "Global" tab. The only thing missing is an additional separate "creator/author" textbox and I was wondering if you could add that in your next version. Having a "title" and "author" textboxes is really useful for providing very basic file information. I find this simple, fast, and convenient rather than going through the trouble of creating tags, which I think should be reserved for those users who want to provide more detailed file information.
I can do that as well. This information would still have to be put into the tags because there's no other place in a Matroska file for this kind of information. The segment title is different; there's an element for this in the segment headers. But it would at least be a convenient way to add some basic information. Maybe I'll offer a complete tab "basic tags" or something like this... I'll have to think about it.

Note that neither change will happen soon. I'm also in the process of rewriting mmg using the Qt toolkit, and this takes precedence over huge changes to the current GUI.

Most of all, keep up the good work, your program just rocks. As an avid mkv user, I really enjoy using it...very easy and straightforward at creating mkv files.[/QUOTE]

@millvus: I already tried the avc_tc package. It was time-consuming, and no matter what I did the end result was a file that didn't play right - the audio was always going out of sync.

@Mosu: will give it a try!

Will there be VC1 support annytime soon?
Then mkvtoolnix would be the first application for muxing vc1 (demuxed from evob) to a new container (maybe with another-language audio stream).

I was muxing a file with mmg and it fails with code 2 errors, without displaying the error message. I had to use command line to see it :
Quote:
mkvmerge v2.0.0 ('After The Rain Has Fallen') built on Jan 17 2007 10:43:41

Error: Error: Simple chapter parser: 'CHAPTER01NAME=Chapitre n
Shouldn't the GUI display it ?

Hmm I don't have any information about VC1, nor sample files, nor is there a CodecId for it... So... Probably not.

Would it help, if i would upload sample files?

A working ID could be WVC1. At least thats what mkvtoolnix recognized in this case.
(I could even upload one of the files mentioned in the post)

Samples files always help. I'll also need a way to play back the files. Meaning a decoder and some demuxer that can handle evobs. I think mplayer cannot really do that yet, even with current SVN...

Oh, AND I need files with LOWER resolutions. My computer cannot handle HDTV resolutions.

You don't need HDTV resolutions to be able to just play the files. I could play 1080i on a 17inch display with a resolution of 1280x1024.

Well, what I meant is that my PC can only decode 1900x1200 resolutions with 3 or 4 frames per second Definitely not enough to see if the muxed file is OK or not.

Unfortunately i got no vc1 file with lower resolution. I could test for you, if you can get mkvtoolnix to mux a whole file (for now it doesn't recognize the file and with haali matroska muxer i can't get a whole file muxed neither).

The new build works great; one minor item I noticed, however, is that the muxed file shows in its properties (MatroskaProp) 119.880127 fps.

I have done some VFR MP4 to MKV muxing before, and in those cases the fps shows as something like 27.2 or similar, so I was wondering why it still shows 119.880127?

I just experimented a bit with "--engage native_mpeg4".
Some of my files get out of sync after muxing them with "--engage native_mpeg4" enabled and at least one seams to drop some frames. When remuxing the mkvs both show a warning like this:

Code:
pr_generic.cpp/generic_packetizer_c::add_packet(): timecode < last_timecode (00:00:00.083 < 00:00:00.167) for 1 of 'N:\Bearbeiten\Death Note\[subs4u]_DeathNote_01HQ_(Xvid,ger.sub)[F53CD5E2].mkv'. This should not have happened.
No problem with vfw.

I'll upload a sample if needed.

I've downloaded a couple of samples from mplayer's server. Maybe I can start with those.

Note: Don't hold your breath. This will take lots of time.

mkvmerge just uses the AVI's FPS field. It doesn't re-calculate or guess the actual number of frames that aren't dropped. For MP4 files it's similar... Only MP4 files don't really have a FPS field; they have something similar to Matroska's default duration.

Yeah, a sample file would be nice. Maybe it's time to fix native MPEG4 mode for good.

Sample is up (DeathNote_01HQ).

And an other thing: Once you have muxed an H.264 AVI with NALU 3 you have to demux it first to set the NALU to 4 in case the decoder does not work with 3 (maybe command line works to but not with GUI). It would be nice to be able to set the NALU for mkv (and mp4), too.

I've noticed that the same mpeg-4 asp .avi (dx50, xvid, etc.) muxed in mkv with native and vfw modes, uses more cpu on playback in native mode than vfw mode.

Hmmmmmmmmmmm I see your point. Might not be that hard to implement.
