Re: Fix Corrupted video

Here is the video in question (10MB) It's a 3gp file and it seems to be pretty messed up. Tried ffmpeg, mkvmerge and mp4box on it and none was able to generate a complete playable file. Avidemux however was capable of simply remuxing the streams without complaint (use unsafe mode), producing a stab...

Re: PGS to VobSub

FFmpeg can convert from pgs to vobsub but does currently
not support muxing to the idx/sub container format.

It can be used with an mkv container though:

Code: Select all

ffmpeg -i source.sup -c:s dvd_subtitle target.mkv

Re: Subtitle line break flags

Seems to be a limitation of the Oppo BDP-83 not supporting unicode text. The subtitles you are working with are text based and text can be encoded in different formats. The standard text encoding for .mkv files is utf-8 which is unicode. As a workaround for your player you could probably extract or ...

Re: Ripping Video CD on Mac

Thanks for the suggestion on vcdgear. When you say to run from Command line, you're talking about a Windows based machine? I'm assuming I would use Terminal if I were running on a Mac.

Unfortunately your log is incomplete, but your source file seems to be corrupted (frame drops galore).

Re: Ripping Video CD on Mac

HandBrake is not a ripper, but you should be able to copy the *.DAT file(s) from your Video CD to your computer. The *.DAT file contains an mpeg stream. Not sure if you can feed the *.DAT file directly to HandBrake. Otherwise there is a little command line helper than can extract to mpeg: vcdgear -d...

Re: Audio is bad and not sync with video while converting .avi to .mp4

I don't know why, it's really weird for me. The avi container was not designed with more advanced encoding techniques like inter frames or variable bitrate in mind. To put streams using such techniques into an avi container, the format was extended or rather hacked. In short it can work, but would ...

Re: How to export 1920x1020 landscape to 1020x1920 portrait for Apple App Store Preview video?

That is not a HandBrake issue. You have to produce and upload a landscape and a portrait version of your video, to be displayed correctly in the corresponding device orientation mode. For iOS devices, you can submit a landscape and portrait version of your video. https://developer.apple.com/support/...

Re: Keeps converting to a PDF

Right click on the file that HandBrake produced,
select "Properties",
click on the "Change" button next to "Opens with:",
select your favourite video player (i.e. VLC),

This .AVI file might be an iPhoto package. If you right click on the "file" there should be an option to show the package contents.
Inside you should find the actual .avi file.

Re: old mpg files "no valid source found"

Sounds like these are CD-ROM XA tracks from SVCDs. To extract the MPEG streams from these you would require special software. There is an old set of VCD commandline tools called VCDImager containing cdxa2mpeg which can do the job. Or vcdgear: http://www.vcdgear.com/ Or maybe Project-X could be of he...

Re: Weird side effect when converting from Lagarith

Codec related problems aside, I also had to convert some video with strobe light flashing once.
The result was nearly pure black video.
After some fiddling it turned out that the deinterlacer happily discarded all the bright frames.

Turning off all decomb/deinterlacing did solve the issue.

Re: How can I avoid 2-px color combing (upsampling error)?

Judging from your screenshots, the field order of your source material is upper field first. But the field dominance of DV video is by standard lower field first. So, I guess, the fields are sent to the deinterlacer in the wrong order. Did you set the field dominance in JES Deinterlacer to upper fie...
