MKVtoAVI GUI (Playstation 2, Playstation 3) - BluRay/AVCHD support for PS3

Just another gui I guess. (current ver 2.2, build 101)

Reasons for creating this application were to make a simple (yet configurable) user interface, that could let users convert video material from one container/format to another. Keeping it simple, small and not fancy is what I will stick to. It will not include dozens of encoding options, nor will try to 'outrun' some of the existing gui's. I was a MeGUI fan, until the no-go with Vista, so... mymkv2avi_gui is a tool you would start, wait (it takes long sometimes) and then get your result, without worrying if the final video is what you need. It was my desire to make one-step conversion for videos for my Playstation2 and Playstation3 consoles, divx compatible players and other devices that yet not support mkv containers, so here is the result.

Main application of the GUI is to:

* Convert any video stream inside a MKV container to XviD video in AVI container (via DirectShow)
--- Keep selected original audio stream or
--- Convert DTS/AAC/MP3 audio streams to AC3 with bitrate conversion and downmixing or
--- Convert AC3 audio streams to Dolby Pro Logic II (2ch downmix) with bitrate conversion
--- (first video stream and selected audio stream are muxed into the final output AVI container)


* Create Blu-Ray / AVCHD compatible output (using tsmuxer) without re-encoding.
--- Compatible with PS3 with AVC profiles up to 4.1
--- If Blu-Ray or AVCHD buttons are used, no re-encoding is performed.
--- Selected audio track is included in final compilation
--- All subtitle tracks from the source mkv are included
--- If .srt files with same name as the source mkv are found, they are added, too
--- For best results, use these buttons if your source video is full 16:9 (1280x720 or 1920x1080)

( Check my other gui for creating multiple tracks AVCHD -> multiAVCHD )

It supports various options suitable both for experienced users and 'home-appliance-type' ones.

Full package is available (15MB): mkv2avi.rar (16MB)

Executable for autoupdate (95KB): mkv2aviupdate.exe (included in tools folder)

Web page: http://mkv2avi.deanbg.com/

mymkv2avi GUI depends on external packages (all included):

* avisynth (2.58)
* mkv splitter (haali media)
* mkv_toolnix (mkvinfo and mkvextract)
* avc decoder
* eac3to
* xvid_encraw
* avimux_gui
* tsmuxer

Updates for builds 68-94:
* Added: Support for BluRay and AVCHD formats. You can now create BD/AVCHD compatible output and burn DVDs or copy to MemoryStick or USB drive or stick (Playstation 3 compatible).
* Added: tsmuxer support and meta file creation
* Added: Files with no audio can be re-encoded
* Added: XSUBs support for PC, Playstation 2, Playstation 3 and standalone hardware DivX Ultra6 compatible players (PC option)
* Added: Keyboard shortcuts (ALT-<key>) for faster access to various options
* Added: option to skip video re-encoding for DivX/XviD streams inside mkv
* Added: Support for DivX XSUB(r) subtitles with AviAddXSUBs (fixed CP setting for PS3)
* Updated: update procedure, server links and mkv2aviupdate.exe
* Fixed: Wrongly enabled "downmix" checkbox with DTS sources, when DTS to AC3 re-encoding is not selected
* Fixed: If mux is unsuccessful and [x] Delete temp files is selected, encoded video and audio will not be deleted.
* Known-bug: AVIMux_GUI crashes if muxed output full path (folder+filename) length exceeds certain length (over 200 symbols)

Updates for builds 50 thru 67:
* Fixed: long names causing errors (when longer than 500 symbols - thanks to naj for all the testing!)
* Fixed: sometimes wrong parsing of audio/video tracks information
* Fixed: open-dml and avi riff headers for avimux_gui when output exceeds 4GBs
* Fixed: unnecessary AC3 to AC3 encoding on some occasions
* Added: audio tracks now show language information
* Added: STOP button (it will leave all temporary files untouched)
* Added: upscale options
* Added: new custom size options for muxed video
* Added: CBR one pass xvid encoding
* Added: Temp folder option
* Added: Autoupdate option and executable added in full package (otherwise download mkv2aviupdate.exe)

* To-do: one-click profiles for:
-  Playstation 2 (PS2 with SMS Player),
-  Playstation 3 (PS3 with firmware 2.20+)
-  Playstation Portable (PSP with firmware 3+) and 
-  Hardware DivX players
* To-do: encoding for Playstation Portable (PSP) with embeded subtitles (it is ready but it is undergoing tests)
* To-do: progress indicator (don't count on it more than I do (-: )
* To-do: Installation procedure (Installer)
There is one of a million/billion people happy to use it, so I'm satisfied.
