I have been ripping my Blu-rays and trying to get the video file size down a bit while maintaining the original lossless audio.
...The problem I have is the video of the output file just stays at 0:00 in VLC when I hit play with no sound or video. Somewhere along the line something is off because the re-encoded video & the original rip both play flawlessly by themselves.
- Basically I encode the video only in handbrake
- Demux the handbrake encoded video stream with TSMuxer
- Open the original ripped Blu-ray with mkvmerge
- Deselect the original video file
- Add the re-encoded video file
- Start muxing
Can someone please double check my settings to see if I am possibly missing something obvious ?

Why are you extracting the encoded video? Why not just open the MKV which HandBrake created with mkvmerge, add the original MKV, deselect the original video and resave it as a fresh MKV?
The frame rate of 90000fps displayed by tsmuxer seems a little optimistic to me. That's possibly the problem. You may need to tell tsmuxer the correct frame rate, or try not using HandBrake's variable frame rate option (if you do), given the video will have a constant frame rate anyway. Maybe that has tsmuxer confused. When I'm ruler of the world, HandBrake's constant frame rate setting will have to be the default.
You could also try moving the encoded video up to the top of the list. Whether it makes a difference to players or not, I have no idea. I always make the video the first stream in the list out of habit.
Anyway, just opening the "encoded" MKV and adding the original MKV (you can add other file types such as MP4 or AVI etc too if need be) rather than extracting the video first should work fine.
