    what should i look for a fix
    Other videos play fine in both the medias.

  2. wild guess: video might be vfr and tv might not properly handle those properly,..
    -> post the MediaInfo characteristics of the file that causes the problems

    Hi, i enclose the media infor in text form.
    It seems that the video does not have vfr, but please confirm it as i do not know much about it.
    if vfr is there, what should i do to fix it.
    This is the first video, that accepts the format , but plays fast.

  4. The file is vfr:
    Code:
    Frame rate mode                          : Variable
    Frame rate                               : 23.976 (24000/1001) FPS
    Minimum frame rate                       : 23.976 FPS
    Maximum frame rate                       : 1000 000.000 FPS
    seeing those min&max values the file is probably not totally fine.

    Since the file was created using VLC stream output, the first thing I would recommend is remux either to mp4 using MP4Box/FFmpeg or to mkv using mkvtoolnix.

    Only way to get cfr if the content really is vfr would be to reencode it.
    For the future: make sure to capture at a fixed frame rate.

    Hi, thanks for the useful tips.
    but , are some videos are having vfr by default
    or vlc played a role in it while i convert it.
    Normallyl media downloads are not having and if i want to give subtitles , i use vlc to embed the srt files and i leave the vlc to convert and save with h 264 and mp3, even when the video is in h 264. i did not check the ffr or cfr in any of the settings. I just do it for all the videos, i would like to give sub titles.
    Is that the video itself has vfr or it changed to vfr while vonverting with vlc.
    Downloading the file is not with vlc media player and i only use vlc for conversion and play the video as it plays all formats.
    please tell, if the video would normallyl contain variable frame rate.

    Some videos are converted in vfr mode even though they have a constant framerate,what i do is set the the fps to 23.976 or 29.97 depending on the video and remux that setting with tsmuxer and if there's no error messages being sent then i put the file back through mkvmerge.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.

    Hi, Johns, yes i got the point. i just converted the vfr video with handbrake , which is having a setting for cfr, not by default, to the same mp4 format.
    i checked and tested and the tv [;aued ffine.
    But , there is another problem,
    while playing video, the audio just disconnects and vidoe plays with video and subtitles.
    i have to go back to tv mode and then again go to the scene to play. It plays again and there is another disconnect of audio.
    the audio is in mp3format and video in h264.
    what should i check now.
    is there a setting in vlc media player , to make a cfr in the video settings or we have to use alternative tooldsl
    the mp3 is having 128 kbps speed
    please give me the solution to this annoying problem

    ...disconnect of audio.
    Do realize: the audio(s) and the video(s) are separate (independent) streams in essence.

    So are the subtitles, miscellaneous, etc.

    Did you try running the original file in tsmuxer and changed the fps to 23.976 or 29.97 to see it came out ok?This doesn't convert it,just remuxes it to ts.

  11. Try remuxing using the audio from the original file and the video from the processed file.

    Hi, i usually like vlc media player to convert.
    Is there any settings that would give me a constant or fixed frame rate of 29.97, so that i need not use so many softwares for easy editing.
    Regarding johns , reply , i wish to point out that video codec is supported in my tv, but mp4aor m4a or sometimes even aac audio is not correcly playing in samsung tv, so i invariably has to change the audio to mp3 universal format.
    if there is a setting in vlc , please say, so that i could change the frame rate to the above.]i do not want to set for individual file, for which i know the existence of setting in vlc. please

  13. i have to go back to tv mode and then again go to the scene to play. It plays again and there is another disconnect of audio.
    the audio is in mp3format and video in h264.
    Which is not compliant with the MP4 format specifications AFAIK.

    That is weird. How old is that TV ? A workaround would be to play such media files through a standalone media player like the inexpensive and well regarded WD Live TV, or a blu-ray disk player with USB input ; in my experience LG BRD players have very good playback capabilities, I gave one to my brother years ago, a BD550, and purchased a newer and smaller one recently, a BP250 I paid 30€ used. But I remember having a similar issue with the BD550 and a MKV file flagged with "variable framerate" ; I tried many things (including remuxing to MP4 with Avidemux or ffmpeg or mp4box and to MKV with MKVToolNix) and eventually the solution proposed by johns0 above (using TSMuxer to set the framerate flag to the correct value then remuxing back to MKV) did the trick.
    Strangely, the same MKV file which was then described as having a variable framerate (when I asked about it in 2015 – damn was I otherwordlily wordy back then ! O_O) now appears with a constant framerate with MediaInfo 18.08.1. Why is that ?

    Hi, aboli, do you mean to say that mp3 audio not cokpatible with the mp4, h264 , or
    you mean that mp4 is compatible with aac, which is taken by softwares, while converting the avcodecs.
    please clarify
    My tv is samsung tv of 2015, which is having usb port support.
    while converting to mp3, should l also change the bit rate to 128, or it will take the audio bitrate of 128 kpbs.
    Mostly , the vlc media player when i play a downloaded video, shows, h2+4 with mp4a or m4a which is advanced form of audio
    Hi, aboli, is it ideal to change all video to be converted to uniform 29.97 frame rate. what if a video has a frame rate of 15. will it play in this frame rate.

    Those standards are only referential. You can simply ignore them all as long as you have a capable decoder.

    Actually I'm not so sure since MP3 is listed among the audio codecs supported by the MP4 container on this official ffmpeg article.


    Those standards are only referential. You can simply ignore them all as long as you have a capable decoder.
    Aren't there real technical incompatibilities between particular audio/video formats and particular containers ? I don't think that a H.265 stream can be put in a MPEG or AVI container...

    You mean encoding videos using VLC and enforcing CFR?..

    I don't know how exactly. (but IIRC you can specify FFmpeg CLI options somewhere in the "Advanced Preferences")

    hi, gdgs, i raised the query , as i was not able to play a video having more than 45 fps and i remember ,sent the information on media info to this site.
    Someone correctly pointed out about the vfr not playing in samsung tv.
    i then went to my samsung tv manual and found that it supports on vlc but not on samsung , which supports only 30. he has advised to convert the fps and then i was able to play that in my samsung without any problem. The conversion was made with handbrake, which has a provision.
    i generallyl use vlc media player for play, and so i ask for a setting in vlc media player.
    Normally ,the settings made for one file repeats for other files, unless you go and uncheck in vlc, but i tried one coversion and it did , but the result was not 30fps rate.
    So, i ask the query and i found no mention in advanced settings option also.

    i will raise this query with vlc forum
