Try muxing the h263 stream into a mp4 with yamb and rename the final file as .mov, as suggested many pages before.


Thanx my italian bro, i try it very soon smile.gif

The "mkv > h264 > yamb > mp4 > mov" method works for sure but i noticed a weird thing:

Load the original 23.976fps .mkv into tmpgenc is not equal to load the .mov + .ac3


There is a 2 frame difference between the original and the mov file, that means the audio should be corrected by 2*1000/23.976 = 83,416ms (83ms or 84ms)

Try it for yourself.

Re-packing to the mp4 container is much faster than re-encoding to wmv just to keep 5.1 sound. I can convert a movie to mp4 in less than 10 minutes using gotsent. WMV takes way too long.

by virtue of 360's limitation/crippling to mp4 H.264s:

1 - Less than 4GB
2 - 720p max
3 - less than 10mbit bitrate
4 - Level 4.1
5 - AAC LC 2 Channel

I wouldn't worry too much about dismissing this thread. wmv-hd is still the way to go, if one wants best PQ of HD on the 360. pop.gif


The 360 supports 1080p with h264.

Does anyone have a copy of the first couple items he lists? Apparently the king has fallen since the links are dead.

You don't need anything other than tmpgen xpress, it's all I use and my hd-wmv files come out perfectly imo biggrin.gif

For those of you who want the TMPGEnc4 Xpress 1080p and 720p templates along with the PDF guide, I have uploaded it HERE. This guide does not require conversion to MOV, and it works great with CoreAvc + AC3Filter.

Note that I have yet to change the source frame rate to 24fps as suggested and so far so good. Ive been planning to do a test of a 20min segment since this is when its supposed to stutter.

I just gave it a test and it is noticeably BETTER when you set the *SOURCE* frame rate to 24fps as suggested by the guide. It doesn't make much sense why you have to do it, but you definitely should.

You can try XVID4PSP to encode to a format for the 360 and PS3. You can use this in conujunction with the other tools to rip the subtitles.

Is this still a good method to use to convert mkv to wmv?

i see this thread was created in 07.. just wondering.

are there better methods than this?

I have a bunch of mkv files that I want to convert for playback in WMC on the 360.

I'm on Windows 7 as well so if you know a working method please let me know.

Hey there Rodoga,

I ran through what you suggested for doing this all from the command line and it worked AWESOME for my 29.970 frame rate mkv files but for my 23.976 mkvs it seems to only encode the audio and ignore the video, even though Mediainfo says that the video is there and at the correct frame rate...

Any idea why I'm running into this and what might solve it? It's very consistant.

Thanks again for your awesome command line based solution!!! I plan on wrapping it into a perl script so that I can have it run through a whole directory worth of stuff.

On a slightly different not a guy named darick created this gui wrapper for the same process you created called Video Encoder, as seen here: http://videoencoder.codeplex.com/

It too works GREAT for someone that doesn't want to mess with the command line. Unfortunately for me it has the same results as your command line batch file.

Any ideas would be very welcome, thanks again!

And apparently I totally forgot where I got the link to go get Video Encoder and as it turns out it's the post directly above my post which pretty much makes me look like moron... :-P

If I could edit it out of my post I would but since I can't I'll post this instead!

Thanks crazyshiza! Video Encoder rocks!

More information!
When I installed CoreAVC for doing the h.264 encoding and AC3 Filter for the AC3 it no longer glitches but the ending video is both glitchy with audio and video.

If I remove the subtitle track from the original MKV file then I can correctly redo with just FFDShow but I don't know whether or not that is going to correct my Audio/Video glitching issues.

Anyone have some suggestions regarding the audio/video glitching?

Thanks!!
Iskondi
