Anyone good at encoders or video conversion tools?
I have a number of oversized MPEG-TS videos that were encoded using the H.264 codec and I need to remux/re-encode them to 4.7Gb MKV each. These files also have AC3 or DTS audio streams that I also need it preserved in the final MKV file.
I could use tsMuxer to demux the H.264 video stream but I have yet to find a reliable tool to re-encode the H.264 file back to MKV.

Speak English man 😉
I used to spend time trying to perfect home-made videos but am rusty. I have used “Super” from Erightsoft.com for doing most (re)encoding but not sure if it can handle what you’re describing. There was also Gordian Knot, but I gave up with the technical stuff. From the sound of it you have the jargon so it might help.January 14, 2009 at 11:13 pm #2249Squid wrote:Speak English man 😉
I didn’t think anyone here would understand. I barely understand myself too. 🙂Squid wrote:I used to spend time trying to perfect home-made videos but am rusty.

I have tried all of those but I don’t remember them allowing a raw H.264 input. Very few do. That is why I want to find a tool that allows me to take the raw H.264 input and convert to a common video standard such as AVI so that I can re-encode the oversize AVI to a smaller size that fits into a 4.7Gb disc. The last thing I want is to waste 4 hours to convert the oversized MKV to AVI and then take another 4 hours to reencode the AVI back to standard MKV size.
Last resort of course is to store to DVD-DL discs. $10 a DL blank disc compare to $2 for 4.7Gb discs…January 15, 2009 at 10:54 pm #2250
I would suggest trying: VirtualDubMod http://sourceforge.net/projects/virtualdubmod/
In Linux I mostly use ffmpeg and it works great.. but for Windows (I presume you’re running Windows) that will do the job I hope.

I use VirtualDubMod for encoding too but VDM does not allow raw H.264 as input.
I used to use FFFMpeg many years ago but now I use VirtualDubMod because I can instruct it to use FFDShow to encode H.264 or X.264 videos.
