  1. This video I got using Tubedigger:
    However, when I play the video with vlc (2.2.4) there is no elapsed time/total time. I can seek any part of the video no problem.
    But when I play the video with Media Player Classic Home Cinema (, the elapsed/total time is shown.
    My questions are:
    1) Why does vlc not show elapsed/total time?
    2) What (free) software could be used on the video to correct this problem?

    Maybe VLC doesn't handle the varible bitrate video well.

  4. remux to mkv or mp4
    I would like to remux to mp4. I assume remux involves no time consuming recoding. Can you suggest what (free) software to do this and a brief explanation.

  5. You could use ffmpeg. Put this in a batch file:

    "g:\program files\ffmpeg\bin\ffmpeg" -i %1 -vcodec copy -acodec copy -absf aac_adtstoasc "%~dpn1.mp4"
    Change the path to ffmpeg to match where it is on your computer. Then you can drag/drop files onto it to remux to mp4. The mp4 file will be created in the same folder as the source file.

    If you put the batch file in your SendTo folder you can right click on a video file in Explorere and select Send To -> BatchName.bat.

  6. OK, I figured it out with the info here in post #2:
    You can use tsMuxeR software; use the option "Demux" in "Output". Start demuxing. Then convert the demuxed audio in aac format and finally use the "Mux" function in My MP4Box GUI software.
    Since there is no recoding, the process goes instantly.
    1) (See screenshot 1) I used tsMuxeR_2.6.12 , input the original file and select "demux" and select "start demuxing"
    this gives a video and audio file (see screenshot 2 red circles)
    2) I used My MP4Box GUI (select "mux" tab)and inputed the video and audio files. The output (green circle) plays perfectly with vlc

  7. Yes, you can do it that way too. But that's two steps with two different programs. Using the batch file method (especially with the SendTo folder) is much simpler if you have to do this regularly.

  8. Alternative method as suggested by jagabo:
    I used this code:
    ffmpeg -i badry1.ts -vcodec copy -acodec copy -absf aac_adtstoasc badry.mp4
    See screenshot at bottom of post. Red circle is original input video. Green circle is output file that plays perfectly with vlc.
