MASSIVE update to MKV2VOB,

V2.0.1 beta 22/Feb/2008

Added boost AAC/DTS volume option.

Fixed overflow crash.

Fixed file splitting cut off after 2gb.

V2.0.0 beta 22/Feb/2008

Im making this a beta because its untested with windows xp (i only have vista)

Completely new GUI with tons of features so I probably forgot to list them all.

Allows set temp directory.

Set preferred audio language.

File splitting (FAT32, DVD-R etc...)

Select a rar file and it automatically unrar and convert the mkv.

Queue multiple files for batch processing.

Queue entire directory for batch processing.

Support files with AAC audio (converts to AC3).

Checks if enough free disk space before each step.

Faster mpeg2 transcoding.

Automatically checks for and downloads updates each time its started.

Fixed bug with mpeg2 stuttering in the beginning and then out of sync.

Fixed bug with files encoded with latest x264.exe might be unnecessarily transcoded.

KNOWN BUG: tsmuxer crashes after muxing mpeg2 video, i have worked around this for vista by autoclose the crash window, for xp you probably have to click end task manually.

KNOWN BUG: split files might have a few seconds of video corruption in the beginning, i dont know how to find the keyframes sorry, i worked around this by duplicating the first few seconds at the end of the previous file.

POSSIBLE BUG: The filesize used for splitting is done using file sizes from specifications on wikipedia, i have not tested if it actually fits on fat32,dvd-r etc..

WARNING: Be careful with the "delete file/folder" after convert option, it might not detect all possible failures/crashes of the conversion tools.

http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=131782

Going to be testing it out just now, and if everything works well, I'll be overhauling my guide again to relfect the new version.

ps. (Much requested change "temp" folder option in new build, file splitting and AAC support!!) :)

It is a beta and you can expect some more versions to roll out over the next few days no doubt - Tsmuxer, one of the programs MKV2VOB uses has gone through quite a big update, so one of the updates to MKV2VOB will be to include that.

Also for the subtitle prayers,

mkv2vob does not use ffdshow it uses mencoder for mpeg2.

edit: mencoder has hardcode subtitles option, ill check this out sunday/monday when i have some free time.

i will add the hardcoded subtitles option sunday/monday but it will only be for transcoded video.

This program right now literally makes the PS3 10x more lucrative ;)

Quick update to my guide before I go to bed.

It's just a rough one, to help out anyone new who downloads MKV2VOB and has never used it before.

I'll do a biiig update tomorrow, remove stuff not needed anymore, finish off explaining the new MKV2VOB and finally get the PSP remote play section done.

For now, best of luck getting everything to work ;)

GOTSent has been dropped out of my guide completely, Sentry23 made a great app, but MKV2VOB just does it better now. (Y) to him for all his work, but it now makes things easier for everyone that one program can do it all.

I think the way it does things changed for better compatibility.

However good news is, as I said above a new version of tsmuxer is out. One of the new features of it, is it can change things to profile 4.1 on the fly, something ANOTHER program in MKV2VOB has do to just now. That other program takes longer.

3r1c is testing it out, and if it works ok, it means you'll only need 1x the space of your MKV, and the whole process will be a loooot faster than it is just now.

He said expect an update today/tomorrow on this.

Is it a DTS file?

Some others have complained about that bug happening when using an MKV with DTS. Some guy says he has 50GB free and it still says insufficient space.

I'd expect another update today, mainly to update to new tsmuxer but I think 3r1c will fix some of these bugs as well.

Even after having 50GB free HDD, it will continue to say Insufficient Disk Space... , I previously stated it was 8GB but the file is only 6.56GB.
I will do some actual testing but i just looked over the free disk space code and it looks ok.

Can you tell me how far does it go before it gets to the error.

only thing i can think of is it uses the movie time length and maybe this file is reporting a very long time in error.

If you're wanting to watch the movie just now, best thing you can try is converting the DTS audio to AC3 yourself and rebuilding the MKV, and then running the new MKV with AC3 audio through MKV2VOB.

I can help you do that, little bit time consuming (not hours, but more work(.

If not, I'd just wait till later today when we'll no doubt see an MKV2VOB update to fix the space requirement issue and include the new build of tsmuxer.

Direct mkv remuxing (300% faster) and subtitles already done and working :)

Expect an update soon!

Direct MKV remuxing is awesome, files will be done in no time now!

Subtitle support is also great, but as said earlier it will only work if you transcode - The only downers there, are a small loss in quality and a file 1.5 - 2x the size, but how many movies will you NEED subtitles in? - Very few, but having the option is (Y)

you guys using the beta right? For me for some reason it takes longer =( anyone else?

I really couldn't tell if you if it took any longer :/

It might have, but I have quite a decent rig for calculations/processing/file movement (eg CPU and RAM are good) - It's just my graphics card that's a little dated :laugh:

So the process only ever took me 10-15mins I'd say anyway.

Not to worry, if you see what I wrote above, direct MKV remuxing is coming, which means for everyone, things will be really fast (Y)

V2.0.2 beta 24/Feb/2008

Added subtitles support.

Removed need for h264info.

Updated tsmuxer.

Remux now 300-400% faster.

Updated disk space check to ignore 0 result, and provide a more detailed error.

Tweaked loader.exe so it does not set off nod32.

Note about subtitles:

Subtitles are added if the following 2 conditions are met.

1. A subtitle found in the mkv matches the language selected in config tab.

2. The subtitle language is different from the audio language in the mkv.

Enabling subtitles causes the video to always transcode regardless of transcode setting.

The guys a machine!

Enjoy guys :D

Does anyone want to test subs?

ps. Looks like the DTS space issues are fixed as well!

Took me 3 minutes to do a 720p movie! (AC3 MKV, DTS MKV will take a little longer as it has to be converted to AC3)

      Sony has acquired the PC porting specialized studio Nixxes
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe



      Only days after Sony Interactive Entertainment announced it was welcoming Housemarque to PlayStation Studios, it has revealed another studio acquisition, this time bringing in the Netherlands-based developer Nixxes Software. Since its inception in the late 90s, the company has focused solely on providing support for other studios, often porting games to more platforms.

      Until now, Nixxes has only given support to Square Enix-published games, developing the PC ports. The work range from classics like Legacy of Cain to most recently Marvel's Avengers. It has also helped with Crystal Dynamic's Tomb Raider games, both new and old lineups, as well as Eidos Montreal's Deus Ex series.

      "I highly respect Nixxes and am excited for this very experienced team to become part of the world-class development community at SIE," PlayStation Studios head Hermen Hulst said regarding the latest acquisition. "They have a passion for improving games and for delivering the best possible experience for gamers. Nixxes will be a strong asset for everyone across PlayStation Studios, helping our teams focus on their most important goal, which is to create unique PlayStation content at the best possible quality.”

      Adding to that, Nixxes founder and senior director Jurjen Katsman said:

      Much like previous acquisitions of Sony, details surrounding the deal, such as pricing, have not been made public.

      It is an interesting pick up for Sony. Considering Nixxes' experience with porting, the studio may serve as the company's go-to place for bringing over more PlayStation exclusives to PC — something Sony is now more focused on — without having to divert too much manpower from the original developer.

      Returnal developer Housemarque is now a part of PlayStation Studios
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      PlayStation Studios has grown to include one more developer as Sony today announced the addition of Housemarque to its first-party studios family. Primarily being a PlayStation focused developer for some time now with eight Sony console-exclusive projects under its belt, the Finnish studio put forth the roguelike Returnal earlier this year solely for the PlayStation 5.

      "Today I’m thrilled to welcome a new member to the PlayStation Studios family," said head of PlayStation Studios Hermen Hulst in the announcement blog post. "I have been a fan of Housemarque since the studio’s early days when they introduced Super Stardust HD to PlayStation fans. Housemarque’s recent release of Returnal proves the studio is one with incredible vision, capable of creating memorable new games that resonate with our community."

      "After more than 15 years of successfully collaborating, we’re excited to amplify our potential even further and join PlayStation Studios," added co-founder and managing director of Housemarque Ilari Kuittinen. "Returnal is a testament to our strong relationship with PlayStation Studios and the organization believing in us to take a risk and give us the freedom to explore our creativity and develop something unique. We can’t wait to bring PlayStation fans more fresh, new experiences."

      The cost of the acquisition has not been made public. Housemarque's current leadership will remain at the studio, who will work alongside PlayStation Studios External Development team for continuing day-to-day operations.

      The move marks Housemarque as the 13th studio to move under Sony's umbrella of game development companies, which already touts heavy hitters like Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, and Santa Monica Studio among its ranks. The other most recent major acquisition by Sony happened two years ago when Spider-Man — and more recently, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart — developer Insomniac Games was picked up.

      Also, Sony may be preparing an acquisition announcement for Bluepoint Games, the developer of multiple remakes of PlayStation exclusives such as Demon's Souls and Shadow of the Colossus. A now-removed tweet by PlayStation Japan had clearly shown Bluepoint as another new addition to PlayStation Studios. It may have been an announcement that was slated to arrive a little later than dropping right alongside Housemarque's reveal, so expect it to re-emerge soon.

      The Sony Xperia 1 III will be up for pre-order in the US from July 1 for $1,300
      by Chandrakant Isi



      Sony's mobile division might be down but is certainly not out, as the company has announced pre-order details for its latest smartphone the Xperia 1 III. If you put aside a weird numbering scheme, the Xperia 1 III has some impressive features to offer.

      For starters, the smartphone is powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 888 chipset which supports 5G NR (mmWave). Based on the 5 nm fabrication process, it packs in eight Kryo cores paired with the Adreno 660 GPU. It comes with 12 GB of RAM with the option to choose from 256 GB and 512 GB internal storage.



      The Xperia 1 III sports a 6.5-inch 4K OLED display. It has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and supports HDR. Sony claims that the display is 10-bit equivalent, which is a fancy way of saying that it is an 8-bit panel with dithering.

      According to Sony, the Xperia 1 III's triple camera setup was developed with the help of its Alpha 9 series camera team. It uses optics from the German company ZEISS. The setup comprises of 12 MP standard, 12 MP wide, and 12 MP telephoto lenses. Plus, there's a 0.3 MP TOF 3D depth sensor. The phone supports 4K HDR video recording with up to 120 fps. For selfies, you get an 8 MP snapper.



      The handset is rated IP65/IP68 for dust and water resistance. Head over to this link to find out more about these IP ratings. The Xperia 1 III has a side-mounted fingerprint sensor. The phone houses a 4,500 mAh battery with 30 W fast-charging support.

      The Sony Xperia 1 III comes in Frosted Black and Frosted Purple. With a starting price of $1,299.99, you can view the entire specs and sign up to be notified of pre-order in the US, starting from July 1, here. However, the company is tight-lipped about its shipping dates.
