  1. I'm just trying to create a DVD compliant image / directory that will mux a wav file with an mpv. The tutorials I have found here use tools that no longer seem to work. I tried MEncoder and finally got it to work after installing a very old version of .NET Framework but then it would not take the .wav / pcm file which seems to be HD - next I tried DVDAuthorgui but it too won't run on Windows 10. Is there any utility that is being maintained that can still mux mpeg video with wav to make DVD compliant files / iso / directories?

    Try having a look for AVStoDVD, it should take pretty much any audio/video input and also uses hcenc so the quality is very high and allows you to do a lot more as it also uses avisynth. Its 100% free and requires no other installations except avisynth or avisynth+

    DVDStyler should also work

  3. I was hoping I could just find a muxer - I really don't want to do any re-encoding - just looking for something simple, but if I cant find it I'll try a more advanced tool - just looking for a simple muxer that supports regular DVD.

  4. To be more clear, this is a DVD that was was converted to MKV by MakeMKV - it has the original video and audio but when I demux it I just get one video and one audio file - so I don't what to chanage any bit rates or aspect ratios etc - just trying to get it back into a DVD compliant format.

    Well if you created that mkv straight from the dvd then the files will be compliant since it does not typically do any re-encoding in that direct process. Avstodvd will not re-encode compliant assets.


    If in doubt, post a mediainfo report here (text mode) of both the video and audio.


    But if you just want a muxer then try muxman. That is what avstodvd uses.

    Well that file looks dvd-compliant to me.


    And you really have nothing to lose by trying avstodvd. You will soon know if it is re-encoding due to on-screen messages.

    AVStoDVD includes settings that prevent re-encoding video and audio that are already DVD compliant. These settings are presented to users when the "AVStoDVD Quick Set-Up Tutorial" window is displayed, under "Encoding Preferences". The checkboxes should be ticked to keep compliant video and audio streams intact when imported into AVStoDVD.

  9. I still don't use Windows 10 on any of my twelve computers, but in other versions of Windows there are "compatibility modes" you can use to allow the older program or utility to run under the current Windows version. Have you tried this? I have at least 3-4 muxers that would do the job for you, and the job you are doing shouldn't take very long or be very difficult.

    So, right click on the older utility you want to use (the icon or the EXE) and look for a compatibility setting.

    Well gee, last night I tried it and got an error from MuxMan - but it must have been something I did - because I tried again this morning and avstodvd worked perfectly with no errors. Thanks for your help!

    Yes, I had not set preferences prior to using avstodvd last nite - after a good nights sleep I got it right! Thanks!
