  1. Hello everybody, I have this 1080p video, which is very very important to me. My cpu can't handle its load, video freezes, I'm not a video expert but I know mkv is a container. So is it possible to remove the container so there will be less system load? Or is it possible to convert it looslessly to another format which need less decompression while playing?

    I tried mkvtoolnix(mkvextract tracks mymovie 1:vid.avi 2:aud.ogg 3:sub.srt) , I wasn't able to play extracted files. I got the feeling that container have no compression at all.

    What are your PC specs including display card?

    What software player are you using?

  3. specs:
    [GeForce 7300 GT]
    Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz

    I tried VLC totem mplayer, mplayer gave the best speeds,

    VLC bombards with me this in debug;

    Code:
    of reference frames exceeds max (probably corrupt input), discarding one
    number of reference frames exceeds max (probably corrupt input), discarding one
    number of reference frames exceeds max (probably corrupt input), discarding one
    [0xb06d2ccc] avcodec decoder error: more than 5 seconds of late video -> dropping frame (computer too slow ?)
    number of reference frames exceeds max (probably corrupt input), discarding one
    number of reference frames exceeds max (probably corrupt input), discarding one

    Your Pentium 4 isn't enough for software decoding and the GT-7300 lacks PureVideo HD (support for AVC decode assist).

    Keep the current file but re-encode to MPeg2 at ~10-14 Mb/s for a chance of playback on that machine. If that doesn't work, reduce size to 1280x720p.

    Try MPCHC for player.

    This pdf summarizes the Purevideo features on your 7300GT. It still requires considerable CPU load for AVC.
    http://www.nvidia.com/docs/CP/11036/PureVideo_Product_Comparison.pdf

    Be sure to inverse telecine and encode to 23.976 fps since the 7300GT lacks hardware inverse telecine.

    Purevideo HD absorbs most of the load from the CPU.

    The 7300GT lacks hardware inverse telecine for HD so you should inverse telecine convert to 23.976p before encoding.

    I'll let others suggest best ffmpeg encode settings.

    Just noticed this file is 23.976p already.

  8. keep getting 6channel error, what would be a good audio codec to take care of 6channels?

  9. The audio is DTS , so you need a DTS decoder e.g. ffdshow , or use a media player that has installed codecs e.g. smplayer

    You won't be able to play it back with that hardware . It will drop frames and be laggy.

    The container has very little effect for playback . You could change to mp4 container or transport stream with little differnce because the problem is your hardware

    That is why I suggested a recode to MPeg2 whch that card can handle. If it boggs down at 1080p/23.976 downsize to 720p/23.976

  11. I worked around the audio by stripping mkv container AUD.ogg VID.avi SUB.srt than encoding VID.avi with with ffmpeg and mkvmerge them back.

    At the %50 of encoding (which took almost 4 terrible hours), I got "missing picture in access unit" error and ffmpeg crashed. I mkvmerge d the half file and it worked pretty fine, yet other half is missing I used

    Code:
    "ffmpeg -i VID -vcodec mpeg2video -sameq -copyts VIDrenc.mpg
    I tried to make another file for the rest of the video and mkv merge it with skipped audio ,but same error still happens "ffmpeg -ss 6200 -i VID -vcodec mpeg2video -sameq -copyts VIDrenctest.mpg "
    also for the possibility of corrupt file I deleted the stripped VID file and restripped it from the md5 checked original. Same happened

    After a whole night of encoding which started from scratch, I wake up to find that

    Code:
    [h264 @ 0x936b710]missing picture in access unit
    happened at %50 of encoding
