I didn't notice if it was mentioned or not but XenonMKV I find works for 95% of the mkvs I throw at at. Out of about 100 conversions only 4-5 wouldn't convert due to incompatible AVC and would have needed re-encoding.

Hi,

Not sure if this is the right place to ask but...

I'm using the latest version of GOTSent to convert MKV to MP4 to play on my 360.

I've converted a few MKVs to MP4 and all are split into 2 or 3 chunks, all less than 3GB. I am playing the MP4s from an external USB drive plugged into the xbox 360 and they play perfectly, no issues with picture or sound quality. The problem is right at the end of the movie, about 3 or 4 mins from the end the xbox throws up an error and won't play the last bit. This has happened on 3 out of 3 that I've tried.

So for example I have a movie split over 3 MP4s, the first 2 parts play fine until the end, then about 3 or 4 mins from the end of the last part (the end of the movie) it gives an error and won't play any more. I can't remember the error right now, something about not being a compatible format (I'll get the full error message later).

Has anyone seen this before? If so, is there a fix?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Try using XenonMKV instead, I find it is a better app overall. You can change which version of MP4box it uses from the GUI which may help in your situation, amongst a lot of other audio options. Worth a shot, it's free!

you're gonna take a high quality mkv with 5.1 audio and convert it to mp4 with 2 channel audio? Talk about a waste of time, at least convert to highdef wmv with 5.1 audio

I'm uncertain as to how ANYONE could follow this tutorial, could not be more vague, no instructions on what to do on each step..


Step 1: There is NO demux option in MKVmerge, only "Start muxing" which if I am not mistaken, is the opposite of what I want to do.

I'm stuck at step 1. Thanks.

PLEASE edit the first post of this tutorial to explain steps in a little more detail.

For anyone else that is having trouble following this tutorial, here is a much better one that actually explains each step, (What a concept.)

Yes, going to take a high quality mkv and convert it to high quality mp4 with 2.0 stereo, instead of 5.1. Not as many people can make use of 5.1 as you might think. Not to mention converting to mp4/2.0 takes around 10-20 times less than conerting to wmv/5.1, depending on your setup of course.

Wondering if anyone else is having the same problem I'm having. I've looked for a solution but I can't find it anywhere.

I've got YAMB to split an mp4 file over 4GB but whatever I do the first part of the split file is unreadable on Xbox 360. Both files play fine on my PC but only the second part will play on 360. I've burned both parts to disc and most un-split files under 4GB play on my 360 with no problems but for some reason my 360 doesn't like the first part no matter what I do.

The log file says that the splitting is successful but that a tagger is missing. I don't know if that has any direct effect on the output.

Thanks in advance for any help. blink.gif Sorry for my noobishness...

So basically,we can't get 5.1 audio using Gotsent?I used WME Assistant and it gave me 5.1 audio and a perfect picture but it took 1.5 hours to convert.

People, I need help. My mp4 won't play. I demuxed the mkv and muxed it into an mp4 container (2 channel aac audio and 1080p avc video) with yamb, but it won't play. It says unsupported format. I stream that mp4 with Tversity. Here are the specs of the file:

VIDEO: AVC 1920x800 , 11.8 Mbps (8,77 GB)

AUDIO: AAC LC - 129 kbps - 2Ch - 48.0 KHz (99,2 MB )

If you think the problem is in the bitrate, I don't think so because my xbox plays a sample of that video which has a bitrate of 12.3 Mbps

I really need help and been trying to watch it for a few days now and it just won't work sad.gif . It' s very important

I'd imagine it's the file size. 4GB limit!

I tried it with Gotsent this time and it works (i just stopped it after few minutes of working to get a sample).
But when it was processing the whole video i got an error at 99%. It says mp4box needs to be closed...
I don't think that there's a size limit when streaming

That's an MP4Box bug that it crashes at 99%, though it shouldn't affect the output. Why not try XenonMKV? There is an option to choose from 3 different versions of MP4Box in that.
