The way you have it set up, your package conflicts with and removes mkvtoolnix and subsequently removes everything that depends on it, e.g. mkvtoolnix-gui. Is this just an oversight, or are there some irreconcilable differences between those two packages?
That's the intention. mkvtoolnix and mkvtoolnix-gui are the official packages in Debian and Ubuntu. My package is mkvtoolnix-mb and contains both the command line and the GUI versions. I just don't want to get in the way of the official packages.

You can use a hexeditor to look for "00 00 00 01 67". Make sure that the h264 file begins with that sequence and make sure that it ends directly "before" such a sequence. Then you should have a good and clean cut.

Just tested mkvmerge 2.0.0. The subtitles with short blocks problem I mentioned in this thread is apparently corrected. Thank you very much for this new version!

problem with muxing MPEG4 AVC ES into .mkv. mkvmerge GUI muxes it fine but no player that I have can play the muxed file. I tried VLC, MPC, Mplayer, and plain old windows built-in mplayer2 with haali's splitter and ffdshow, all players just play audio only. If I mux the same source ES first into .mp4 with mp4box then .mkv with mkvmerge GUI, it plays just fine.

Confirmed. I have such files, too.

Isochroma uploaded a file for me which seems to show exactly the behaviour you two are encountering. I'll try to fix this later this week. But if you could upload some more files to my FTP server then I'd be grateful. 10 MB or so should be enough, but you can also upload 50 MB or so.

First 20 MB of my file are on your ftp (folder: LaughingMan; name: "Elfen Lied - 01 - ...").

It muxes fine with simple block enabled, without it says the NALU size is to small.

Please read the error message. You can and must set the NALU size manually for such files.

The only alternative would be to always use bigger NALU sizes resulting in bigger files which I don't want to do.

I read it and did as it said however BOUTH files (the one with simple block enabled and with NALU 3) don't play. I should have been more exact.

When i open a H.264 .ts file with 2 AC3 audio tracks, only the video is added.

Is this a feature or a bug?

and an off topic question:
mplayer -dumpvideo -dumpfile raw.264 file.ts
mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile raw.ac3 file.ts

Doing that (those files mux perfect in .mkv now) will only extract 1 of the 2 AC3 tracks, how can i extract both?

Feature. Or a bug. Depends on your point of view. mkvmerge does NOT support transport streams! If it says it finds a h.264 es file then mkvmerge is mis-detecting the file, and I guess that the resulting .mkv is not playable.

Try selecting a different track with -aid in the second case.

Thanks for the quick answers, on all issues you were correct, helped a lot.

Very very sad you dont support .ts to .mkv directly, it would be the most perfect way to store satellite captures.
.ts to .mkv (if http://rickman.ri.funpic.de/ can calculate the audio delay, than so can you), then deselect any unwanted audio track, or all, and mux DD or DTS with the Video.

Cut the perfect end result file (who needs credits?), save some space on your HDD..... man i wish i never wake up.

Does anyone have specs for h.264 transport streams? And just as important: lots of sample files?

Additional it seems like who ever gave you the samples, wasn't using any of mine.
Muxing BBC-HD MBAFF raw.264 + raw.mp2 is giving glitches.
mplayer -dumpvideo -dumpfile raw.264 file.ts
mplayer -dumpaudio -dumpfile raw.mp2 file.ts

I tried on this sample: beyonce.at.the.bbc.1080mbaff.sample.ts

I got more samples:

Code:
all 19.0 MB (19,963,908 bytes) (dd if=source.ts of=result.ts bs=188 count=106191 skip=0)

00:07 premiere.hd.ts
00:08 bbc.hd.ts
00:09 anixe.hd.ts
00:09 sky.movies.9.hd.ts
00:13 astra.hd.ts
00:14 arte.hd.ts
00:16 euro1080.hd5.ts
00:16 prosieben.hd.ts
00:17 luxe.hd.ts
00:18 hd.forum.tf1.hd.ts

I can give you a PM if you are interested in these samples.

Edit:

Are you seriously working on this? That would be lovely, of course! I've lots of h.264 transport streams. But I guess most are just the same, because they're all captured with the same software from the same TV channel.

Thanks to your efforts, my problem is solved also... but one more thing, the test.264 that I muxed with Yamb, I set the fps to 23.976, and when the MP4 was merged into MKV, the framerate now showed as 24...

With the new MKVMerge, muxing directly the ES and setting its framerate to 23.976, the output MKV has a framerate of 24.975025? Strange...
