  1. I have the MKVMerge guide by Bunkus in front of me.

    But the program is saying I haven't got the split defined correctly.

    Also the difference between duration and timecode has me confused. How does duration differ from timecode.

    In the box I have selected
    split at duration
    the duration is defined as 01:34:44:00
    Max number of files 2
    and no Link box checked.

    It keeps telling me that the format of the split time code duration is invalid. I can't see where my error is.

    It tells you in the documentation; The notation is HH:MM:SS.ms . Notice the period at the last entry before ms, not a colon. You should have 01:34:44.00

    split by duration means after every interval, it will produce a new file.
    e.g --split duration:00:60:00.000 means it will try to split after every hour. If you have a 4 hour long source, you should get 4 pieces

    split by timecode means you provide the list of times that it will try to split at
    eg. --split timecodes:00:45:00.000,01:20:00.250 means it will split at 45 minutes , and 1 hour 20 minutes, 250ms. So you should get 3 pieces

    You can only split at keyframes, so the "cuts" are not always accurate depending on the source file characteristics

  3. Thanks for prompt reply.

    That's pretty subtle. Time for a 'margin note' on my part.

    As to key frame the goal with the split is at a fade to black act break. I'll report back any success.

  4. A little experimentation was needed with the time. I must have found the keyframe.
    The split looks ok.

    Explanation of 'duration' was very helpful.
