Re: Large MKV files on iphone: No reliable Rewind or FF, and regular freezing

Also rewind works perfectly with files on PlayerXtreme, which plays MKVs. Thank you Rodeo, musicvid, and Handbrake community.

Re: Large MKV files on iphone: No reliable Rewind or FF, and regular freezing

Hi musicvid, I ran 4 audio tracks last time using only AACs for my English, French, Portuguese, & Spanish. I also did it at 1080p30 rather than 2160p60 4K HEVC Surround. As I mentioned, I also converted VOBs from something else to MP4s with Handbrake, and VLC on the iphone has the same issue: no rew...

Re: Large MKV files on iphone: No reliable Rewind or FF, and regular freezing

Thank you again musicvid. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem, but it did improve it. No more freezing, but absolutely no rewind function in VLC on the iphone. Interestingly, I also converted VOBs from something else to MP4s with Handbrake, and VLC on the iphone has the same issue: no rewind....

Re: Large MKV files on iphone: No reliable Rewind or FF, and regular freezing

Sorry for the delay. (I am in the middle of a house move. ) I tried it but it did not help. For other reasons, I recently had to wipe the phone and restore from icloud. So it's a fresh install of VLC. If I try to reincode the MKV files with Handbrake, are there any settings I should change? Perhaps ...

Re: Large MKV files on iphone: No reliable Rewind or FF, and regular freezing

Don't know if it makes a difference, but I put VLC got onto to the new iphone via the synch I did with it to itunes to get everything from my old phone onto the new phone. I installed VLC on the old iphone 5s a week or so ago. It’s 3.1.9 (325). I would hate to delete and reinstall VLC on the new iph...

Re: Large MKV files on iphone: No reliable Rewind or FF, and regular freezing

By the way, I also moved VOBs of Field of Dreams (3.9 GB) -- that I created perhaps 12 years ago -- to VLC on the new iphone and they play, rewind, and FF perfectly. (except that I have to play the VOBs individually.)

Thank you for responding. Great question that I considered this morning. The answer is no, there are no such problems playing the same MKV files in VLC under macOS.

Re: No Subtitles on mp4s I created with Hankbrake

To create an MKV file instead of an MP4, select MKV from the Format: pulldown on the summary page. That will open up the options as far as audio and subtitle codecs that can be included. The downside is that not all playback software and devices support MKV files. You cannot play them on Apple devi...

If you want switchable subtitles, you'll have to output MKV files.
Thank you Woodstock. Will I use Handbrake to do that? And what kind of file size will be produced?
