I guess Gavin is stumped then :(

If it only happens with the one file, then it's something to do with the way that specific file is encoded.

Check if any others work for me, then ill see if I can pinpoint what is wrong with that one file.

When you downloaded it did you run the .exe from your desktop ? does a black icon appear once it has been installed ?

Matthew

I just ran the .exe as an installer, then launched the program from the Start menu.

Hmm... my 1080p copy of Transformers looks awful after transcoding... I couldn't get screenshots of the same frames, but you can still see how weird the encoded copy is:

The unencoded x264 version: http://www.troist.com/normal.png (This pic is not 56k friendly)

The mkv2vob encoded version: http://www.troist.com/encoded.jpg

Is this just a problem with the current 1080p playback? I used the x264 transcoding option. The outputted file was about a tenth of the size of the original copy.

It's not worked then. Sounds like you selected Divx :/

If you transcode with the x264 option the output file should be around the same size give or take.

What codec pack have you installed on your PC? I recommend you clean out your PC and install CCCP I linked to in the 1st post.

I believe others in this topic have done 1080 Transformers before?

My muxing is constantly failing, this is beginning to drive me crazy.

I'm using the settings listed in the opening post, and I've installed CCCP.

With more than 1 file?

If so you must not have space for the mux, or something else on your PC is interfering.

With the program at the build it's at, it's either the way the file is encoded or something not set up right.

There really isn't any more bugs left in it, and hundreds if not thousands of people use it :p

It's the same file over and over, it's the only file I actually want to use.

It can't be a size issue, there's 80GB free on the drive.

Can you get another rip of the movie?

Also one last thing you can try, http://www.smlabs.net/tsMuxer/tsMuxeR_1.4.6(b).zip

Put the newest tsmuxer in your mkv2vob tools folder and overwrite the previous - Longshot as the change from 1.3.6 (which MKV2VOB uses) to 1.4.6 doesn't really have anything that would help us in mkv muxing.

Try it anyway if all else fails.

I have another thing you can try if the above doesn't work, get back to me.

By the way is it 720p or 1080p?

The cutting off is happening with every movie that i stream and they are fine when i play them on the PC. I also have 100gb free on my drive so i cant see that being the issue.

It's either TVersity setting or your connection.

I had the same problem with my copy of transformers, the x264 option always seemed to produce a file a 10th the size of the original. I had a look at the bitrate of the converted x264 file and noticed that it was a 10th of the original bitrate found on the source file, it would seem as though mkv2vob is using a lower bit rate when transcoding using the x264 option. I have tried other 1080p files including; Bourne Ultimatum and Harry Potter OoTP, both produce the same results. However using the XviD option produces files that are of 1080 resolution and with a good bit-rate and quality but sometimes the filesizes can be almost double the original.

3r1c had stated on the Doom9 forums that this could occur if mkv2vob is unable to read the header of the x264 file or the appropriate information is not in the header file (eg. resolution, bit-rate etc.).

I have been trying to find the exact command line inputs that mkv2vob uses to transcode the source x264 file to the PS3 compliant x264 file with little luck, if anyone knows the exact input to use with the x264 encoder please post it, thanks.

Yes im streaming wireless however i have a popcorn media tank in another room and it streams perfectly, so i dont think it has anything to with the network. I think it could be something to do with TVersity.

If you read what MKV2VOB recommends, it actually says MPG has the "best compatibility".

I now use MPG, all ive really found though is WMP now plays the file - Previously VOBS were hit or miss in WMP.

Not noticed anything on the PS3 side, but I'd say it's worth putting all your movies in the MPG container if 3r1c recommends so.

      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.
