  2. [QUICK START GUIDE]
    Screen Shots' explain most of everything you need to know.
    The way 'automatic' AUDIO & SUBTITLE selection works (SETTINGS & PROFILES) is explained below...

    MAIN BUTTONS


    JOB


    TRACKS


    [SETTINGS & PROFILES]
    Coming soon... (Wait a day - I'm tired. Been on a busy train all day.)

    FOR THE PROGRAMMING NERDS & CURIOUS USERS: (Input Procedure)

    Load File, or Files (Input Files placed in 'List(of String)')
    Background Worker used to scan the File using FFMPEG, file information obtained via FFMPEG JSON output.
    WORKER/JSON/FILE CHECKS: (All these happen to each File)
    • Check for WORKER ERROR - (An error that's a 'biggy') - stop all - Notify user.
    • Check for WORKER EMPTY - (No result (information) was received from the Background Worker) - stop all - Notify user.
    The checks that follow only notify you if there's a problem when loading an individual file (The 'FILE' button).
    I didn't want the program to stop in FOLDER (or DRAG 'N" DROP) mode just because there was a problem with one or two files.
    Imagine you drop 40 files and the whole thing stops just because of one file... Or you get notified of 10 files it can't load!
    Problem, or incompatible files, in FOLDER mode, or DRAG 'N' DROP mode, will just be skipped, you'll get no notification.
    • Check file 'Format' is available (NOTHING). If not, Notify user (Remember!, all these only notify in FILE mode).
    • Check file 'Streams' count. If there's no streams (tracks) then there's nothing I can do - skip - notify user!
    • Check file 'Programs' count. If there's multiple programs - skip - notify user!
    • Check file 'Duration'. If no duration, or less than 4 seconds - skip - notify user!
    • Check file 'Format'. If not supported - skip - notify user!
    • Check 'Video Stream' count. If it has no video, then I'm not interested - skip - notify user!
    • Check 'Video Codec'. Is it a H264 VP9 etc? If not - skip - notify user!
    These are the main 9 checks that are performed on each file you load in. If it gets past all these checks then your file will be added to the BOX4 list as a JOB.
    • Anything I missed with the input checks? Please comment if I have missed something.
    • Would you like any other breakdowns of what BOX4 does?
    ...sorry for any mistakes/typos. My half-assed VPN is playing havoc tonight.

  3. Great...all the fetaures I was expecting...thanks!!!

  4. Good to hear. Give it a good test when you have time and report back
    Quote Quote  
  5. Just tested it and it worked flawlessly...added a subtitle, set it as forced (as far as I know this is the only FFMpeg based remuxer allowing it). I personally like the new layout so...big congratz...great job indeed.

  6. No problems reported from previous BETA1
    Now updated to BOX4 version 3 (BETA-2)
    • Fixed mp4|mkv profile button same file (extention) I/O check.
    • Added the ability to edit the audio normaliser LOUDNORM parameters 'I|LRA|TP'.
    • Editible TextBoxes (Title & Normaliser 'dynaudnorm-loudnorm' options) highlight all on selection.
    • A few font changes to add a little continuity.
    • Simplified the input video|audio|subtitle|attachment format checks.
    • Some trivial GUI/control/geometry changes and alignments.
    • Various (too many to list and/or forgotten) small code improvements.

  7. If there's no errors/bugs/faults with this version, it will become version 3. (after extensive post-checking of course).

  8. Please note: "LOUDNORM" takes *a lot* longer that "DYNAUDNORM"

  9. Absolutely my favourite re-muxer...got rid of MKVToolnix and PopCorn MKV AudioConverter and finally I can use a single program for my need. Author attitude is a plus...he always listen and take in the right consideration suggestions and requests.

  10. Test still in progress but here are the first remarks: For now streaming reception and image quality are correct.
    I would return to complement my opinion because elements have not been tested, WiFi for example ...

    Streaming? Wifi? Are you referring to BOX4?

  14. This happens to me regularly and only with V3...when I process several files (simply copy process removing unneeded audio and subs tracks) the first few files are processed at impressive high speed then from file to file speed decrease noticeably and I'm talking from about 5000 fps to lower than 100...tought it was a ffmpeg problem but I re-processed the same files with exactly the same variable (same source and destination folders...different HDD and no other program running) with Xvid4PSP and the processing speed was constant...any idea?

  15. Hi there,

    Can we replace the FFMPEG libs etc with 4.1 versions while waiting for the next rls?

    seems that the exe is hardcoded to show 4.0.2...

    Yes and yes.
    I usually include the "shared" release of FFMPEG, not the "static", to save filesize as FFMPEG/FFPROBE both needed. Just delete the files and update them, all should be OK.
    Lastly, you're right, hardcoded, the FFMPEG version number is just the version that was originally included with the release of BOX4.

    Very good software, been using it for a while.
    Would it be possible in the future to add burn-in option for subtitles?
    Thanks.

    It's not a video encoder so the only way you can achieve your goal is using MKV as container and set desired subtitle as "Forced"

  21. update: beta 4

    Changed, updated, and shifted, the input/import scan worker procedures slightly.
    - Now all files load in almost instantly.
    Updated the input parsing routines. (both file input and subtitle import)
    Cleaned up the dialog message window.
    Cleaned up a few GUI properties.
    Amended some coding type conversions.
    Last Beta version.

  22. It would be perfect IMO if you could add:

    1 - Drag and Drop for folder
    2- Auto Selection for Subtitles with forced flag.


    Great program anyways...

    OK I agree, useful amendments, they've been added. Could you test the file I PM'd you and let me know if it works for you?

  24. Thanks video.baba...I have tested it and it works perfectly. Once set it automatically select the tracks I usually include (Video-my language Audio and my language Forced Subtitle)...time to go for the "Final" status IMHO.

    Thanks again

  25. BOX4 V3 (FINAL)
    (Changes since last beta 4)
    Allow folders, as well as files, to be 'drag and dropped' for input.
    By default, auto select (enable) subtitle track if its 'Forced' flag is set.
    Tidied up a couple of minor '.Opacity Fade' issues.
    Cleaned up the final bits of code.

  27. @Video. Baba: What about out of sync audio tracks?
    It's now possible to correct the delay of the desynchronized track?
    I miss a warning sound once the task list is finished.

    Regards.

    I don't know? What about them? Maybe you should fix that. Why do you have audio sync problems so much?

    Ah yes... Sorry, completely forgot about that.

    'Cause I usually convert mkv's (to MP4) with dual audio (Spanish and English)
    When they are just in English they don't usually have delay.

    If the Spanish tracks have some delay problem then you should fix that before using BOX4?
