Trying to convert MKV to DVD without having to convert to avi then to dvd with DVDSanta. Any ideas?

Thanks reply

The matroska pack and filters makes matroska contents readable in Windows Media Player, and possibly other DirectShow applications. What I don’t know is if it’ll make it readable under all applications (we never know - DVDSanta could be using VFW instead of DirectShow). You could give it a try and report your results for others who want to try the same.

TMPGencoder has a nice DirectShowSource reader filter, so you can ecnode anyhting into MPEG2 ( DVD ) that your Windows Mediaplayer can play ... reply


I think you meant DirectShow Multimedia File Reader because I looked up the latter. Still, this plug-in doesn’t allow us to open mkv along with ogm files. reply

If the MKV files with Mediaplayer, TMPG can open it.

Ok. TMpgEnc is really able to open my 4.3 gb MKV, so it is a really kewl solution. reply

I’ve got MKV and OGM files containing multiple audio streams and subtitle streams... extracting the video and a single audio stream and making VOBs isn’t a problem for me... I use VirtualDubMod to make an AVI of the video and a selected audio stream, and then NeroVision to convert the AVI to VOBs for burning to DVD-R.

The question I have is this:
Does anyone have an easy way to take a video stream and multiple audio and subtitle streams and create VOBs for burning? This way, as with any commercially bought DVD, my resulting DVD will have the option of toggling audio and subtitles. reply

I have DVDShrink, but I’m not trying to copy a DVD; I’m trying to author my own, and it doesn’t accept AVI and MP3 stream inputs. I found a program on that site, though, that I’m trying out right now... looks like it might work.

if tmpgenc wont read it you have to go in to enviormental settings and make sure the directshow vfapi is top priority, latest xp codec pack will help also. reply

TMPEGencoder will only work with Gabest’s matroska splitter from http://sf.net/projects/guliverkli installed, not with Haali’s splitter which is coming by default in the matroska DirectShow playback packs from http://packs.matroska.org.
We don’t know why that is, and the TMPEG guys refuse to work with us to find the problem. However, there are two alternative ways :

1. One is by using DVD Santa 4, a DVD burning program that also has a DirectShow frontend and will work fine with Haali splitter, unless the picture resolution isn’t higher than DVD resolution (causing problems with some modern HD-TV MKV files in h.264 compression) or unless one or all of the audio tracks in the file have more than 2 channels, like some of the 5.1 Dolby surround AC3 or AAC audio tracks. Here a Guide : http://www.matroska.org/technical/guides/dvd/index.html

2. The other method is a more advanced way, using a brand new and powerful program called Mediacoder : http://mediacoder.sourceforge.net/ . This app is currently the most powerful file converter out there, its based on Linux' mencoder and will allow you to convert basically everything (OGM, AVI, MKV, MPEG) into DVD compatible MPEG2 files, for the DVD authoring process. In principal, it should be possible to use it for multi-audio files also, if you convert the video alone, than every audio track separate, but you need a powerful DVD authoring tool that will allow you to create Video DVDs with more than one audio track.

I’m having problems with subtitles and MKV files and using TMPEGE. Media Player Classic works just fine for playing them, but if I want to use TMPEGE to turn them to MPEG2, I can’t see subtitles.

Using Haali’s splitter (as you mentioned) doesn’t work right in TMPEGE. Each time I load an MKV file with subtitles, it asks “do you want to load the subtitles” 4-6 times (not once). But no matter how many times I click “YES” it never shows the subtitles. So I uninstalled it.

Then I saw your post here, and went and installed Gabest’s MatroskaSplitter. TMPEGE works “fine” with it -- but NOT if there are subtitles. It works fine, but the subtitles never appear (and there is no option I can find to make them appear). So if it’s an MKV file with no subtitles it works, but that kind of defeats the purpose of using MKV anyway, instead of the old AVI.

Any idea on how I can take an MKV file that has subtitles and get it to work with TMPEGE so that the subtitles will be “displayed” and rendered along with the picture? Media Player Classic works fine, but I can’t find anything that will bring up the subtitles on an MKV file with TMPEGE.
Thanks reply

Your only chance to to do this with TMPEG is by using Avisynth and its 'DirectShowSource' command, as TMPEG will always supress subs (don’t know why). More info about this program is on forum.doom9.org

Hello, I see that this forum is at least relativly active so I thought I would post a quick question here. I have several multi-audio and subtitled OGM files that I am looking to be able to author onto a DVD. I read everything prior and have tried out TMPGEnc as well as VirtualDubMod and several other programs but all to know avail. One combination I used got me a file with video and audio (one stream only) but no subtitles after about an hour of tinkering. So my basic question is just this, is there any way to get my OGM files into DVD mode with the subtitles intact? I dont really care about the multiple audio streams, just one is fine, but I do need the subtitles. Any suggestions? Thanks. reply

okay the question i have is with mediacoder... i can actually open mkv files within tmpgenc but, as mentioned previously, the problem arises with multiple audio streams and subtitles, as i would like to keep all streams and subs intact,these 2 problems would seem to be remedied by mediacoder... but the one feature that i love about tmpgenc is that i can take 8 or so mkvs, (sadly only one audio, and no subs on each)and have the end coversion fit onto a single 4.7 dvd. i would love to use mediacoder, but is there some way that mediacoder has a batch conversion with a built in calculator for all of the audio and subtitle streams so that i can batch convert 8 or so mkvs to fit onto 1 dvd once i load all the audio, subs, and video file into a “high end” dvd production software? reply

@ Addison Ulhaq :

Sorry, not yet, but for sure there will be such a feature in a future version of mediacoder.
