    Does your mkv have an embedded subtitle stream or are you using an external SRT?

    With my test file with embedded subs I see this in the log, as it should be:


    Code:
    <9/30/2021 10:04:18 PM>
    DVD CHAPTERS CREATION OPERATIONS
    Title 1 Input Chapters List: 3639 12295 19975 27241
    Title 1 Output Chapters List: 4548 15368 24968 34051 
    Created File: S:\Video\testfile_testfile_Chapters.txt (29 Byte)
    <>
    <9/30/2021 10:04:18 PM>

                          <snip>

    -progfr "S:\Video\testfile_testfile_Chapters.txt"
    -chapfr "S:\Video\testfile_testfile_Chapters.txt"
    and it corresponds with the title edit/chapters tab

  2. Subtitles are embedded. I'm seeing something very similar to what you are in my "Chapters" tab

    You should post the whole log

  4. Fair enough. Here's the log. In this case, all three MKV files have embedded chapters & subtitles.

    My attempt to recreate your scenario prior to you posting the log was inaccurate,
    didn't realize you had DVD spec mpeg-2 inside the mkv, so no re-encoding necessary.

    I'll see if I can find, or create a similar file to attempt this myself

  6. That's correct, in fact they're taken straight from other DVDs using MakeMKV. Thanks!

    I have not been able to reproduce the problem yet, but I do see you're running version 2.88.
    I would uninstall and update to version 2.89, there were a bunch of fixes in there.

    Some other guy had similar problems last year

    Hi i was trying to make a dvd out of some old stuff i downloaded and the video converts fine but when it gets to subtitles part i get a error its. Image
    [Attachment 61077 - Click to enlarge]
    I thought it was how the title is named so i renamed it and this error keeps coming up. These was mp4s with srt seprate subs so i muxed the sub into mkv. I cannot add srt with the mp4. into the program comes up error. How can i fix or bypass the error?

    SRT is probably bad. It should be just clear text. Open it in Notepad and take a look

    Load the SRT in Subtitle Edit and see what it says

    Checked into this, not the issue. AVStoDVD won't burn chapters for my MKVs no matter what, even if I use the auto-finding chapters feature and ignore the ones already in the file. I updated to 2.89, no luck.

    I added a short video (5 minutes 15 seconds) and left the chapter creation at default. Wrote to ISO, which I mounted.
    Used MakeMKV to produce the MKV from the ISO, which I fed to AVStoDVD as the source and I see the
    chapter(s) were picked up and is working as I expected.

    Can you provide the recent log, and if possible create a short MKV that has the prblem and upload that too

    I can provide the log again if that will help, but I cannot provide the full MKV as it contains copyrighted content. I'm making these DVDs for personal use only, not distributing them.

    I also can't seem to replicate the issue...if I create a new MKV file with chapters myself, it works fine. Additionally, if I remove the chapters from the MKV (which was ripped from a commercial DVD) and re-add them myself, it works fine.

    So, it seems like there's an issue with the way the chapters are muxed on these particular MKV files.

    I can show you the XML file that MKVCleaver gives me when I export the chapters. They look slightly different. Here is a working one and here is a non-working one.

    Something to note is that, on the working one, each <ChapterAtom> tag contains within it a <ChapterFlagHidden> and <ChapterFlagEnabled> tag, as I've pointed out with arrows here:
    Code:
    <ChapterAtom>
          <ChapterUID>4720342913198446197</ChapterUID>
          <ChapterTimeStart>00:03:46.676000000</ChapterTimeStart>
          <ChapterTimeEnd>00:12:28.571000000</ChapterTimeEnd>
          <ChapterFlagHidden>0</ChapterFlagHidden> <-------------------------|
          <ChapterFlagEnabled>1</ChapterFlagEnabled> <-----------------------|
          <ChapterDisplay>
            <ChapterString>Act 1
    </ChapterString>
            <ChapterLanguage>und</ChapterLanguage>
          </ChapterDisplay>
        </ChapterAtom>
    Whereas the non-working one does not have those tags at all.

    Code:
    <ChapterAtom>
          <ChapterUID>1804031295723516397</ChapterUID>
          <ChapterTimeStart>00:03:29.008800000</ChapterTimeStart>
          <ChapterTimeEnd>00:13:34.013200000</ChapterTimeEnd>
          <ChapterDisplay>
            <ChapterString>Act 1</ChapterString>
            <ChapterLanguage>eng</ChapterLanguage>
          </ChapterDisplay>
        </ChapterAtom>
    Could this be the culprit? I noticed that if you stop AVStoDVD mid-stream, and open the .m2v file it creates, it doesn't have chapters. So, something is happening when it is converted with FFMpeg. Is there a command line argument I can pass to fix this?

    The m2v would not have the chapters, they're processed separately and handed off to authoring stage.
    Can you create a 10 - 15 minute clip as a sample? No need to worry about copyright in such a case
    Quote Quote  
  16. Hey Dave,

    Here's a sample clip. Let me know once you've had a chance to take a look at it, and I'll take it down (not intended for public distribution).

    At this point, I'm mostly just interested in what I can do to "fix" the MKVs so AVStoDVD doesn't have this issue. Let me know if you notice anything weird!

    EDIT: Removed the link to the clip

    Thanks,
    Sean

    OK I got it, I'll let you know what I find

    There seems to be something wrong with the video. Try re-encoding it in the project instead of using the stream as is.

  18. Huh, interesting. Any insights as to what specifically is "wrong"? Would rather not re-encode if at all possible.

    I have not pinned it down yet, hope to have something more concrete soon.
    One thing that makes it difficult, but I'm hoping the clue is there somewhere, I am not the author of the code
    so I can only work backwards from what I see, like a detective. On examples where the demux and chapters work
    you see this:
    Code:
    END VIDEO DEMUXING OPERATIONS
    Created File: C:\Users\davex\Videos\DVD_1_title_t00.m2v (441.2 MB)
    Ouput Video Info: MPEG-2 Video - 4992 kbps - 720x480 - DAR 16:9 - 29.97 fps - 8 bit - Progressive (TFF) - 12:21 minutes - 22217 frames
    <>
    and in your file where it doesn't work, this:
    Code:
    <10/1/2021 1:24:30 AM>
    END VIDEO DEMUXING OPERATIONS
    Created File: C:\Users\Sean\Videos\DVD_1_Title_01_movie1.m2v (1197.2 MB)
    <>
    where the line that says "output video info" is missing completely. Probably the author of the code could tell us
    what that implies, but have not seen him in the forum for a while

    If you keep the demuxed video and audio and use those as the source,
    it works. I made a post in the doom9 forum about this

    Weird. Does it have to be demuxed by AVStoDVD? Lends further credence to this being a muxing issue...

    I dont think so, probably using something like MKVcleaver would work. If you want a2d to do it, set it up like this and they'll be preserved
    in the "DVD assets" folder from the preferences
    But you'll have to find another way to import the chapters.
    You could open the original file in A2d, save the chapter points in a text file then close the project.
    Load the m2v/ac3 and the saved chapters
