A 1:1 video copy option

Post by starforce »

Is there a way to get a 1:1 copy video and just change audio tracks? Some kind of Video Passthru? Thanks for your awesome tool.

Handbrake is intended for video encoding, so a "pass through" option for video isn't in the project's goals.

You can use the command line version of ffmpeg to do exactly what you're asking, though.

If all you need to do is switch out audio tracks, AVIDemux (free) should do the trick.

To remux (repack) to .mkv, use MKVToolnix GUI.
To demux (extract) from .mkv, use MKVCleaver or similar (MKVToolnix needs to be installed
To remux (repack) to .mpg, avi, 3gp etc., use My MP4Box GUI.
To demux (extract) from .mp4, avi, 3gp and others, use MP4Box GUI.

MKV files and other types, like MP4, avi etc. are just containers for audio, video and subtitle streams. You use the tools to extract or repack the streams into different containers. It's lossless because of that and only limited in speed by your harddrive.
