  1. I think we have found a workflow that works along side the settings on the smartphone. In all cases AVS2DVD is being used to do the final conversion to DVD which it does a great job. Just 1 question should the smart camera be set at 1080p or 720p for the closet resolution to DVD output I was thinking 720p as during conversions the frame resize should not by as much as it would if it was 1080p but its just a thought what you guys think?

  2. This is working great with PAL to NTSC and NTSC to PAL.

    Curious. If I were to convert an MKV to MPEG2, could I keep the resolution?

  3. Will avstodvd support type-1 dv avi files in the future? Type-2 sometimes cause audio to desync. It will be much easier than making an avisynth script for each file since there are many.

    Edit: Got it to work by changing track=0 to track=-1. Then use notepad to batch replace the project file.

    Glad you got it all working, Its one of the best programmes for converting files to dvd and to be honest I am finding myself using it more and more. I don't think it will keep the resolution of your mkv if you convert as AVS2DVD makes all files DVD compatible so if PAL the resolution will be 720x576 or if NTSC the resolution will be 720 x480 all at full D1.

    hope this helps

    you can PS, TS, or MTS streams with mpeg2 video in 720 or 1080
    but these are NOT dvd compliant and will be converted to DVD resolution when using avs2dvd to author dvds

    but you can use these streams for editing or archiving and play them on the PC and some media players

    IF you want to create hi-res Hi def discs then you will need to create BD disc formats, author / burn Blu-ray discs
    and play them in a Blu-ray player or blu-ray PC drive

  6. Got this error when trying to convert a type-1 DV file. Had to use directshowsource instead.
    FFAudioSource: Audio format change detected. This is currently unsupported. Channels: 2->2; Sample rate: 48000 -> 3200; sample format: 16-bit integer --> 16-bit integer

    New version of my AVStoDVD plugins, had to modify the FFmpeg_VBR plugin for the latest AVStoDVD_285_Alpha161027.

    could you upload a portion of the Type 1 DV file anywhere?

    Thanks

    Hi digicube,

    I played with your uploaded file, and you are right, FFmpegSource cannot handle the audio. But then again this is a very unusual audio format. A PCM file at 32 kHz sample rate with 12 bit resolution, I have not encountered such a file so far.

    Luckily DirectShowSource (or DSS2Mod) together with LAVFilters handles this audio without problems, so I see no reason why you should try to use FFmpegSource with this kind of audio. The main flaw of DirectShowSource is that it is not frame accurate with seek operations. But this only applies to video streams, for audio streams this is not a problem.

    So just do not use FFmpegSource for such audio streams, and you will be fine.


    Cheers

    Yup, that's what I did. Most mini DV camcorders record in this format I think. Just thinking if avstodvd can autodetect such things. If not, it's ok. I know what to do.

    On an unrelated issue, I usually delete the colormatrix line in the avisynth tab as it has caused some MKV encoding problems in the past. I don't think it's beneficial either.

    I am not too knowledgable with ColorMatrix, but what I know is that HD sources use a different color matrix than SD sources (DVD), and so the colors have to be converted when a DVD is created from a HD source. The usual code would be:
    Code:
    ColorMatrix(mode="Rec.709->Rec.601")
    Could you upload a problematic MKV where AVStoDVD does it wrong?

    I don't have the problematic MKV file anymore but I will post it if I encounter one again. Problem probably lies with the MKV as it only occurs on a small number of files. As for the code, this is what I see.

    Code:
    Video = Video.ColorMatrix(source=0,dest=2)

    According to the Colormatrix help file these two command line parameters do exactly the same thing.
    A possible issue could be the "clamp" parameter. A2D does not set it, so the default value of 3 is used. A couple of HD->SD scripts I have from the Internet all use "clamp=0". No idea if this makes a visual difference...

    Thanks for uploading the file. The issue actually cannot be addressed to FFMpegSource. The problem is that the DV file has 2 audio tracks and those tracks have 2 different stream identifiers each. See the MediaInfo report:

    Code:
    Audio #1
    Count                                    : 254

    AVStoDVD reads the Stream Order parameter from MediaInfo. For this DV file there is no such parameter, but 2 Stream Identifier parameters. AVStoDVD is messed up and passes to FFMS track id 0. Actually id 0 is the video track, hence FFMS complains. If you change the AVS script and put 1 instead of 0, then FFMS will accept the audio track w/o errors.

    I have to dig into MediaInfo parameters to better handle multiple audio stream identifiers for the same audio track...

    OK, got it. Either track=-1 or track=1 can be used.

    I just played a little more with this DV AVI, and it seems thoroughly broken to me...

    MKVMerge cannot open it, same for AviDemux. VirtualDubMod also refuses to open the file. AVStoDVD cannot demux the audio streams. Processing the audio with A2D using DirectShowSource only seems to work at first glance, but on a closer look you will see that both audio tracks are identical, they originate from the same source audio track.

    But I found a way to handle this file correctly. FFmpeg can repack the file into an MKV container with the correct Meta Data. I used dmMediaConverter for the task. Load the source AVI, specify "Copy" for all tracks and save into an MKV container. The resulting MKV can be used as a source in AVStoDVD, and there are no problems using FFmpgSource as the audio source filter.


    Cheers

  18. I don't think broken is the right word. Maybe incompatible. The video is recorded according to DV specs.

    HI all, I have been using AC3filter to get better sound from my speakers , but the problem is AVStoDVD does not like it.

    My question is there a way around this problem, where I can have both installed on my computer, thank you for ant assistance.

    What are the symptoms that "AVStoDVD does not like it"?

    If you have set up AC3Filter as your preferred DirectShow decoder for AC3 (maybe also for DTS) then AVStoDVD will use it including all the audio tweaks you specified in AC3Filter. If you want to use AC3Filter for your playback chain, but not for conversions with AVStoDVD, then the easiest way would be to force FFmpegSource for audio in the AVStoDVD preferences.

    Thanks manolito, when I had ac3filter enabled the audio was ok but green screen for picture, when I deleted it avstodvd worked fine.

    In the directshow filters graph ac3filter showed up as a connection to lav filters.

    Just tried to reproduce your issue, but I couldn't...

    Win7 64bit, latest AVStoDVD Alpha, curent stable LAV Filters. All preferred DirectShow filters set to LAV Filters.
    Installing the latest AC3Filters Full version did not alter the preferred DirectShow Codecs. The filter graph showed AC3Filter connected after the LAV Audio decoder, just before the Default DirectSound Device.

    I then converted two separate source files with these settings, no problems at all.

    What I do not understand is that you get video problems when AC3Filter is installed. AC3Filter has nothing to do with video, it only affects audio. The filter graph shows that for video only LAV Filters gets used. So I suspect that something must be wrong with your DirectShow video filters setup. What happens if you force FFmpegsource as your video source filter?

    Same os as yours, will install AVStoDVD alpha and stable version of Lav ( I might have the nightly version) and try another encode, if it fails will

    try FFmpegsource and report back.


    Thanks Mike.

    We are not getting anywhere this way...

    Please post your AVStoDVD log file, and also make a screen shot of your DirectShow Filter Graph and post it here.

    Cheers

    I tried it again and this time AC3filter was after Lav audio , it was successful with FFmpegsource ,

    albeit the file size was slightly higher ( 1.4% ) but everything looks good , will try another one later,

    sorry for any inconvenience manolito and thanks very much for your help.
