    As you can see the video track is 22:03 as well as both audio tracks, and there is no delay. Subtitle tracks are 22:04 (still no delay) and 18:58 for the forced subtitle track (no delay either). However in the general tab duration is 25:50 ? Windows also reports a video duration of 25:50, but MPC reports 22:03. Do you know why this is happening? Have I made a mistake muxing this file?

  2. I think the "Duration" of the tracks is not counted from a virtual point zero on the timeline but from the first packet of said track. In case of a subtitle track that would be its first line. So it is possible for the first line of e.g. the Track with ID 6 to be at 06m52s. Then because the "Duration" is 18m58s the end would be 06m52s+18m58s=25m50s. So it would not be an error of MediaInfo or MKVToolNix but a misinterpretation by the user. The "fix" would be to remove any lines/line endings after 22m3s.

    But then, wouldn't the video be playing for 25:50? There should be some subtitle at the very end of the file, well after the video has ended, but it isn't the case.

    No, not necessarily. Depends on the player.

    How did you determine that "it isn't the case"?

  5. Well unless MPC is doing some weird magic, I should be able to tell by watching the video. It ends at 22:03 and the last subtitle appears at 21:27. Considering MediaInfo reports a duration of 25:50 I would expect MPC to play for that duration, including 3:47 minutes of black frames at the end, and a final subtitle somewhere near the end that would explain this extra duration.

    EDIT: But I've recently had trouble with VsRip, could be that the subtitle track has dangling information, not real subpic but garbage data maybe.

  6. I've extracted the subtitle tracks with a different software and everything is in order, def something wrong with VsRip. Thanks for the pointers sneaker.

  7. What does "in order" mean?

    You could try MKVToolNix GUI's Info tool. Look into the last clusters to see what track(s) they belong to and what timecodes they have.
