    If you have ffdshow/subtitle active, open the ffdshow video decoder config and on the top left select codec, and scroll
    down, see if there is a check mark in "subtitle" if so deselect it. You can use Graphstudio to open the MKV, and it will
    identify the subtitle filter. If it's dvobsub or some other standalone filter you can unregister or uninstall.

    In the examples below, you can see Divx subs active in a Divx file. The box on the right identifies the filter name.
    IN the second image, you can see the FFDShow decoder config with subtitles active. Deselect to turn them off.

    Depending on your comfort levels, may be easier to use the AVStoDVD method I described earlier,
    it will save you having to disrupt your system. In XP it's simple to temporarily unregister the filter, but in vista/7,
    certain operations have to be done in ADMIN mode, which complicates things...

  2. I removed AVStoDVD 2.4.2 along with all associated programs and, after defrag, installed 2.4.1 (I hadn’t realized 2.4.2 was a beta). Haali came with the install. Then I installed ffdshow. After that I transcoded the same AVI movie to DVD folder, and running the video_ts files on VLC media player now it looks good with natural looking movements. I have a few questions before I burn the DVD.

    For a bitrate of 4951 kbps, would I get better video quality if I forced HCenc VBR 2-pass? (using Video Encoding Profile in Title Edit)

    Does selecting Normalize Audio in Audio Preferences produce better sound?

    Can I burn a DVD from the files in the video_ts folder?

    If my burner’s top write speed is 8X, should I generally burn movies at 4X?

    Here is the log of successful transcoding to video_ts folder:

    I'll attempt to answer your questions:
    regarding HCenc 1-pass Vs. 2-pass, the 2-pass encode more accurately honors the chosen bitrate.
    In some tests I did, the 1-pass comes in a little low (perhaps 10 - 15% under) So if the bitrate is
    marginal, and you have footage with high detail or much motion, 2-pass should give better quality.

    Usually, maintain compliant audio should be chosen. If the source file already contains ac3, it is left as-is
    and copied it to the DVD. If the source is mp3, normalize does no harm, it maximizes the peaks,
    so it's potentially a little louder - not better

    To Burn the finished video_ts folder, open Imgburn select "write files/folders to disk" (you may need to select
    Mode/ez picker first)
    Drag the video_ts folder to the window. On the options tab, File System, select ISO 9600 + UDF .
    On the Device tab set the write speed. Set a label on the labels tab (optional. The program will pick one of
    you leave it) Burn the disK

    4x or 6x should be fine. I usually burn 16x media at 12 x

    PS you made two identical posts above, please delete one (EDIT it and remove the contents) - it makes reading the thread more difficult.

    What might cause this: the third of three clips in a project (this one was .mp4) makes Qu-Enc slow to less than a crawl. Many hours pass, the encoding fps dropping to .6, then .42, then .31. At this rate, it might complete around New Years. So, finally, I aborted the project. The video in question was more likely an indigestible codec (for Qu-Enc) than damaged, I'm guessing. I subsequently re-did the project in that other program, where the whole thing took less than 30 minutes, actually filled the SL disc (an uncommon surprise), and came out with pretty good quality. That makes this academic, but I'm still curious. I did not find anything informative in the AVS logs, and so did not keep them.

    Did you try encoding the troublesome file by itself, or perhaps reorder the titles.
    There are too many unknowns really. Did you check the CPU during the slowdown?
    Some other task using all the cycles?

    No, I could have tried those things -- also maybe forcing the use of HC-enc instead -- but given the not-so-great importance of the project, limited time and patience for testing, I did not in this case. I mainly let this job run on and on out of curiosity, to see what would happen. While all this was going on, I caught up on some paperwork, had dinner, then watched half of a preseason NBA game + a quarter of a football game + 1 movie downstairs, so it wasn't critical that the computer was tied up on this job that never panned out. And no other app of any consequence was running.

    Since I had a license for CX2D well before I switched to AVStoDVD as the mainstay program, I keep it around for situations like this. As I've noted many times before, it's good to have options. There will always be cases that one program succeeds where the other one fails. I generally don't rely on just one app in most other categories, either.

    On a different note, I just tried encoding a vid and used the Quenc 1 pass, as recommended by AVStoDVD.

    Though it seems to me QuEnc is supposed to have multi threading support, Task Manager showed only 2 threads were used on my i3. HCEnc uses all 4 CPU threads, no problem.

    There doesn't seem to be any QuEnc multithread setting in AVStoDVD I can find.

    As this stands, 2 pass VBR doesn't take much longer than 1 pass CBR to encode.

    Is there a way to change this?

    Never mind last post, found it. Though I must say enabling "Use Trellis quant" to enable multithreading seems a wee bit hacky.

    Greetings! This is my first forum post. I have followed this forum for many months, and I have
    learned a great deal from the interaction of the community. AVStoDVD has performed flawlessly for
    me on my Vista 32-bit HP laptop, so much so that I have abandoned and uninstalled all other
    authoring tools that I have used in the past (e.g., DVDStyler. DVDFlick, multiAVCHD, etc.), and
    now I use AVStoDVD exclusively. Thank you, MrC, for such a great tool!

    Recently, though, an interesting issue has come up. For ease of travel, I bought a Toshiba
    netbook running Windows 7 Starter Edition, and increased the RAM to 2GB. I installed AVStoDVD
    and, while the Intel Atom N455 processor is slow, it eventually gets the job done. Until now, I
    have processed several relatively small files (Xvid, MPEG-1 Audio layer 3, wrapped in an AVI
    container). AVStoDVD does its work and completes the projects successfully. I use VLC to preview
    the finished VIDEO_TS file set, and then I build and write the DVD using ImgBurn. Result: success
    every time!! The DVD is playable on my netbook, and on every other computer or DVD player I own.

    Feeling bold, I decided to try processing a larger file wrapped in a MKV container (AVC 1280x720
    video stream, DTS 6-ch audio stream). My little netbook takes forever, but AVStoDVD seemingly
    creates a successfully completed project. Unfortunately, the audio is "present, but unheard."
    Let me explain: As usual, I use VLC to preview the finished VIDEO_TS file set. The video plays
    but there is no sound. Curiously, VLC recognizes that a 5.1 audio stream is available; I even
    monitor the audio and video streams in VLC's Media Information Statistics section, and it shows
    that both audio and video streams are being decoded and played--still no sound. Testing further,
    I select a .vob file from the VIDEO-TS folder and let VLC play it--same results: video, but no
    audio.

    Thinking VLC may be the culprit, I next try to play a .vob file in Media Player Classic--same
    results: video, but no audio. I examine the .vob files with GSpot, and GSpot detects both the
    video and audio streams. Thinking now that my little netbook is the culprit, I transport the
    files to my trusty HP laptop and repeat all of the tests, step by step outlined above--same
    results: video, but no audio. As a final test, I let ImgBurn build and write the DVD from my
    "AVStoDVD on netbook"-created VIDEO_TS folder. I play the resulting disk in all of my computers
    and stand-alone DVD players . . . and, you guessed it--same results: video, but no audio.

    Frustrated and wanting to see the darn movie, I let AVStoDVD process the source file on my
    workhorse HP laptop. When successfully completed, I preview the movie in VLC (so far, so good;
    video plus audio). I let ImgBurn build and write the DVD; and then play the resulting disk.
    Result: a perfect DVD!!

    To summarize: (1) AVStoDVD works flawlessly on my HP laptop with every kind of source file I
    throw at it. (2) AVStoDVD works flawlessly on my Toshiba netbook when I process Xvid/MPEG-1 AVI
    container source files. (3) AVStoDVD "appears" to successfully finish projects on my Toshiba
    netbook when I process AVC/DTS MKV container files, but the resulting VIDEO-TS folder contains
    .vob files that have detectable audio streams which cannot be "heard" on any computer, or by any
    DVD player when the authored DVD is burned to disc. (4) One last point about the source files
    themselves: before I let AVStoDVD process them into DVDs, I play them using VLC. VLC plays all of
    them flawlessly, be they on my HP laptop or on my Toshiba netbook.

    Sorry for the lengthy post--I wanted to be as detailed as possible. I suspect you'll eventually
    want to see log files--I will re-process the source file (and save the logs this time!). Until
    then, any initial ideas about the "present, but unheard" audio streams in .vob files generated by
    the AVStoDVD suite installed on my netbook with Windows 7 Starter Edition? Your insights would be
    appreciated by this newbie. Thanks!

    I think you're going to need the LOG to get any further with this. Another thing you could do is provide the Mediainfo display
    (in view/text mode) of the source MKV file.

    "Thank you" to Davexnet for the quick reply to my audio conundrum. I am happy to report that the problem
    appears to be "solved," but I must admit that I am not sure exactly how or why.

    The first step in diagnosing and troubleshooting the problem of video/audio streams that could be "seen but
    not heard" was to untick the "Delete temporary DVD assets files" box in the Advanced Project Settings area,
    thus preserving both the .m2v video and the .ac3 audio files that would be subsequently muxed by MuxMan.
    Previously I had only unticked the "Delete AVStoDVD working files" box to preserve some logs.

    Now, with access to the ac3 file created by the AVStoDVD suite, I discovered why my VOB files contained an
    audio stream that could not be "heard" by any of my players (e.g., VLC and Media Player Classic): The ac3
    file itself was also "silent" (i.e., while attempting to play it in VLC, for example, I could see that VLC
    was decoding and "playing" something, but no sound was actually being rendered). By the way, when I tried
    to play the ac3 file on my other computer, no sound could be heard there either. I still do not understand
    why this was happening, but I thought it must be codec related.

    Here is what I did to "solve" the problem on my little Toshiba netbook running Windows 7 Starter. Knowing
    that AVStoDVD worked flawlessly on my HP laptop running Vista, I examined what I had installed on that
    machine in addition to the AVStoDVD package. The Program Files folder revealed two applications that I had
    not installed on my netbook: AC3Filter and ffdshow. Thinking "what the heck, it couldn't hurt," I
    downloaded AC3Filter from (http://ac3filter.net/) and the latest build of ffdshow at
    (http://www.afterdawn.com/software/audio_video/codecs/ffdshow.cfm), and I installed both on my netbook. I
    then started another AVStoDVD project with my problem mkv source file, and went to bed. When I woke up
    several hours later, AVStoDVD had successfully completed the project AND the VIDEO_TS folder contained a
    vob file set that could be heard!! Not believing my eyes and ears, I played only the ac3 file in VLC and
    it played--at last, sound that could now be "seen AND heard"!!

    I still do not understand why the installation of AC3Filter and/or ffdshow solved my audio issue, but
    apparently one or the other (or both) did. If anyone can educate me as to the WHY of all of this, I would
    be interested in learning the details. And if you still want me to post the AVStoDVD logs for both my
    unsuccessful and successful projects, I can do that, too.

    Having now gone through all of this, I must say that I probably won't be using my netbook too often to author
    DVDs because the processor is so slow and the conversion process takes so long, but I treat this as a
    learning opportunity, and it's always a great feeling when you can get something to work!

    Thanks!

    Glad you fixed it. FFDshow is recommended by MrC, the author of AVStoDVD. AC3filter is optional,
    since if you configure the audio section of FFDshow (codec/mixer) it does a similar task.

    The usual recommendation of this forum is not to use codec packs; instead just FFDShow and the Haali media splitter.

    See the AVStoDVD help/general info/requirements for more info.

    I didn't know of the existence of such a terrific DVD authoring software. I could solve a weird subtitle issue using AVStoDVD after Baldrick's recommendation. Thank you very much, _MrC_!

    Is there any tutorial or information web site that explains how codecs, FFDShow, splitters, etc. all work together? Not necessarily just for AVStoDVD, but how & why a video has to be taken apart & put back together. Something like why do I need Haali media splitter, and what does FFDShow do that other codecs may not do.

    The series of filters and splitters is just the way directshow works. Open some media files with graphstudio to see the graphs.
    FFDshow is simpler that the other codec packs; it's really just a few programs (libavcodec and others) that provides the decoding.
    You can configure it with the supplied config tools.

    Haali is the splitter for MKV and MP4; I don't know if directshsow could access those types without it.

    You are welcome!

    For more details about ffdshow works, see here. Be patient and read carefully, there's a lot of knowledge behind.

    Running AVStoDVD version 2.4.1, I attempt to hard-code subtitles by unticking "Auto Subtitles Setup" and ticking "Hard Encoded." HCenc 0.25 launches and almost immediately ceases, and the generic Windows error warning appears: "MPEG2 encoder has stopped working." Curious as to whether the default setting would work, I return to the Subtitles/Title Edit box, untick "Hard Coded," re-tick "Auto Subtitles Setup," and restart the project. The project concludes without incident, yielding a perfect DVD with multiplexed subtitles that can be viewed by using the Subtitles function on my video player's remote control (but, of course, subtitles were not hard coded).

    I uninstalled version 2.4.1 and installed version 2.4.2. Following the same procedures outlined above, I received the same results: A Windows error message stating "MPEG2 encoder has stopped working" when trying to hard code subtitles, but I get a perfectly rendered DVD with multiplexed subtitles when using the default setting.

    Testing AVStoDVD on another machine, AVStoDVD 2.4.2 flawlessly hard-coded the subtitles! Obviously, I must have some conflict on the problematic machine that wasn't cured by uninstalling and re-installing AVStoDVD, but I am at a loss to understand where or why. What might be happening that could cause HCenc to choke when trying to hard code subtitles (but allows subtitles to be multiplexed when using the default setting)? Any ideas or advice would be appreciated. The log from the failed attempt is shown below. Thanks for your assistance. Glenn

    Have you installed VSFilter (DirectVobSub) in your system? If yes, try to uninstall it (or update it to more recent release) and run again the AVStoDVD project.

    If you still get problems, try to unistall and re-install AviSynth.

    Mr. C . . .

    I installed the latest VSFilter.dll (1.5.3.3904) over the version (1.5.2.3903) that comes with the AVStoDVD 2.4.2 installer package. No joy. Then I uninstalled AviSynth, and re-installed the latest stable AviSynth (2.58) per your suggestion. AVStoDVD's subtitle hard-code routine now works properly!! I knew it wasn't the AVStoDVD suite that was the problem; but I didn't realize AviSynth might be the culprit. Looks like it was the uninstall/re-install of AviSynth that did the trick -- Mr. C., you are a gentleman and a scholar!! Thank you for AVStoDVD, and thank you for your expertise and timeliness in helping us arrive at solutions to our gremlins.

    First post on this site:

    Trying to Burn an .mkv file with 2 audio tracks (EN and JAP) and Eng subtitles to a DVD.

    AVStoDVD will not transcode. It gives me errors saying the AVIsynth cant process the file becuase of an unsupported audio format. Here is the log file.

    How can we fix this???

    Make sure you have installed Haali Media Splitter and a good directshow codecs suite (like ffdshow stable releases).

    I installed the AVStoDVD program and all the other helper programs that came with it. I would assume thats all I would need to work correctly since it all came bundled. I have the Haali media splitter and I will have to check for ffdshow.

    A good habit is to have a look at the readme.txt file that comes with a freshly installed software. Especially the Software Requirements section

    Please check ffdshow and let me know.

    I ended up taking the file to work and installing AVStoDVD and FFDshow on my i7 2600k 16gb AVID edit station at work and it seems like its working. Recognized all audio and sub tracks and it encoding as we speak with HCenc I will see how this turns out. May have been becuase my computer at home is an ancient dinosaur and is still running a P4 3.06ghz hyper threading LOL. I will see how this turns out and try and replicate it at home and see what happens.

    Well, it didnt work this time but I got farther.

    I imported the video clip into AVS and demuxed the english audio track from it. It saved it as an MP3 file. I then went back into a new project in AVS, imported ONLY video, then added the MP3 file of english audio to it and the subtitles file. The encoding worked but then it failed when it opened up muxman. Here is the AVS and Muxman log. I put in bold the section of the AVS log where the problem is. I tried to author it wil WAV LPCM audio since it was coming from an MP3 file I thought that would be a better conversion to try.

    Process aborted during DVD AUTHORING operations!

    DVD Authoring operation failed, probably caused by excessive bitrate.

    There does seem to be a bug in the program. I added a couple of titles, calculated bitrate 6509, audio 192/ ac3.

    I edited the title settings and changed the two audio settings to LPCM/1536 .
    Problem is, the calculated video bitrate stayed the same (6509).

    I ended up getting it to work. I imported video only, then added separate .mp3 audio track. I changed the video settings to CBR one pass with HCenc. Then I changed to MP2 audio at 192kbps by using Quenc only audio encoder. Worked perfectly.
