eac3to.exe -test

This will direct eac3to to find all the external filters that it uses and will tell you if it can't find something or if its not working correctly. Let me know how it goes.

Will do. Also, the issue I was previously having of the movie randomly pausing and jumping around was somehow caused by my wireless mouse. I plugged in a USB mouse and everything played fine. (Of course this was after I deleted what I thought were corrupt files)

Next up (and again, I'm sorry for all the questions, I just want to make sure I'm doing all this right)

[a04] Audio overlaps for 27ms at playtime 0:58:18
[a04] Audio overlaps for 23ms at playtime 1:53:11
[a04] The audio file was demuxed without making use of the gap/overlap information.
[a04] Please rerun the same eac3to command line. That will correct the gaps/overlaps.

and then it gave me those same lines but with [a07] at the beginning. Do I need to do anything for that?

No problem John that is what we are all here for. So the gap/overlaps section of eac3to is for correcting delay problems (usually occurs when joining multiple m2ts files together) ....this is not a essential and in fact most of the time if you play the file then you will find that it plays just fine. If however it doesn't and the gaps etc are detectable then you need to run eac3to again to correct. Basically what its telling you is that their is a gap in all demuxed audio streams and you need to re-run eac3to on each stream to correct for it. So to answer your Qs yes you do need to do it for track 7 as well as track 4 *If the delay is notisable to you*. Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Jiff.

Hi Jiff, here is what I got when eac3to (version 2.75) analyzed the source,

M2TS, 1 video track, 7 audio tracks, 9 subtitle tracks, 2:23:16
1: Chapters, 17 chapters
2: h264/AVC, 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
3: RAW/PCM, English, 5.1 channels, 24 bits, 48khz, -1ms
4: AC3 EX, English, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz, -9ms
5: AC3 EX, French, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz, -9ms
6: AC3 EX, Spanish, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz, -9ms
7: AC3, English, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz, -9ms
8: AC3, English, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz
9: AC3, English, 2.0 channels, 192kbps, 48khz, -9ms

Also, about suprip I don't think I explain myself very well. It's not that I expect everythiing to be OCRed, I don't mind typing in the characters, but this is what happens. So I don't even get a chance to type the characters. I played with all 3 settings on the lower left and that's the most characters I can get it to recognize. I'm using suprip 1.01. It looks to me that maybe it doesn't recognize the font and therefore doesn't know which are letters.

Hi prozak,
Ok so there is no dialognorm with the track that you specify (track 4, ac3) that is why when you tell eac3to to extract the ac3 file you do not get any message to tell you its being removed. You did everything correctly, you should get a .ac3 file out and that can be used directly. For future reference, if you have dialnorm etc on a track it will be removed automatically it will be shown as a number in db after the other track details (using your example) it would look something like this:

4: AC3 EX, English, 5.1 channels, 640kbps, 48khz, -9ms, -27 db

Note that since this has not been decoded you will have to apply the audio delay in mkvmerge.

Now on to subrip ...this is strange. I have never had a track like this. So you say you are using version 1.01, which of the pirates movies are you doing? I'll rip the subs out myself and see if I can recreate the problem to give more insight. Hope that is helpful, any more Qs I'll do my best to help.
Cheers,
Jiff.

I'm trying to rip a HD DVD that has a Dolby Digital Plus soundtrack. I find that eac3to only produces an .eac3 file thus not converting to flac. How do I get it to do that?

Thanks

I'm trying to rip the first Pirates movie, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl". On a bit of a side note, is dialog normalization a requirement from dolby? I thought it was but not sure now since this didn't have it. Also, thankyou once again for your help, I appreciate it.

You have to tell it to encode to flac (It doesn't do it with lossy tracks by default) ....I'll assume you are using guide 1 since this situation has arrisen. If I were you I would use the second guide its far easier to manipulate. For this you have to give eac3to your track number that you want to convert and then the path where it should be writen with the extention .flac. e.g.

3:"C:\\yourfilename.flac"

You can also do this with the .bat method by adding a simular line to the script after the video portion but the problem is without knowing exactly what track number it is eac3to will do conversions with all available audio. Hope that was helpful.
Cheers,
Jiff.

Thanks I'll look into it ...dialnorm is supposed to be part of the spec but I have come across a few titles now that didn't have it. Go figure - could just be a urban legend, I've not seen anything official.

Don't know what I was thinking. I had selected AC3, not flac, as the output format in eac3to and More GUI.

Now I get all the various formats converted to flac in the .mkv container.

Get the latest vesrion of Haali media splitter so that the muxer can be updated ....I did DH4 a while back and there were no problems so as long as a fairly recent version haali is installed you should be fine.

Download the MadFlac decoder (link at the top of Guide 1) ...when you install it, extract it to your C drive (programs folder would be best) and then click on the install.bat (but do not delete the folder once its installed, its functional).

Jiff.

i created two mkv files. both have avc video (original not reencode) and flac audio.

when i open the files in graphedit, one shows audio going through madflac and then ac3filter. the original audio was pcm.

in graphedit, the other file shows the audio going through madflac only. the original audio was dts ma.

a) how do these files end up with a different graph to begin with?

b) how can i get rid of the ac3filter after madflac? (i need ac3filtesr installed for other files that use it correctly) i can fix the graph but i cannot figure out how to associate the changes with the file.

EDIT: did a bit more reading to understand directshow filters better. "Intelligent Connect" put ac3filter in the graph. changing properties of ac3filter in graphedit to disable pcm removes it from its position in the graph after madflac. it was missing in the graph of the other mkv file because that one was 24bit 7.1.

Argh, I need some help here guys. I am trying to rip my Blurays to MKV and am getting nothing but audio sync problems.

This is what I used to rip Pirates 1

Added fps value to MKV header.
Video track 2 contains 206070 frames.
eac3to processing took 41 minutes, 31 seconds.
Done.

Then after I recombine it with mkvmerge the audio is out of sync. I put in the -9ms delay as it states but it doesn't help.

Any help is appreciated!

No madflac is a directshow filter and as such should work with any directshow capable player i.e. TMT, WMP, VMC, Zoom etc

Quote:

ffdshow is the best FREE decoder but the renderer also plays a huge part of the final picture quality ....make sure you have either haali, VMR9 or EVR selected to draw your pictures. With regard to Graphedit you are correct that the reason for ac3filter appearing in the graph is due to the output type of madflac (16 vs 24 bit PCM) with the different files. Ac3filter shouldn't mess with the sound as long as its not directed to downsample the audio but from your post it doesn't seem that is the case.

Quote:

Your method is correct, I see no problem with that ....I can only assume its a hardware issue. Need more detail on what you are using, graphics, refresh rate (I'm assuming that your playing @60Hz otherwise you wouldn't have this problem), operating system, screen type (model etc). If you supply this then I can help you get it sorted. Sounds to me like the audio is being played at a different rate than the video (it happens on my system if played @60Hz).
Cheers,
Jiff.

Thank you JiffOrange for this guide. At the moment it appears to be the only way to get HD audio from Blu-ray.

I really want to hear my Iron Man disc in all it's glory, so I tried your guide starting with eac3to. Unfortunately it aborted after apparently running all the way through the .M2TS file.

Any idea's what is wrong here?

Thanks,

Any idea's what is wrong here?

Uh oh. Do I need to have Haali installed for this to work? I am using Vista x64, is there an x64-compatible version?

Will the Guliverkli Matroska splitter work? Apparently there is a version for Vista x64.

Ac3filter shouldn't mess with the sound as long as its not directed to downsample the audio but from your post it doesn't seem that is the case.

...

what i thought was a problem with avc decoding went away when i stopped including chapter information in the mkv. it was freezing and had audio sync problems.

although I was looking in the wrong place for a solution, it was worth the study to understand how "Intelligent Connect" works. now i can use ac3filter to downsample/remix audio intentionally. i tested avisynth -> quenc with a grf that uses ac3filter to convert hd flac to 2 channel ac3. it makes a nice sd mpg file from mkv(1080p/avc/flac) in one shot.

Hi lifespeed,
Yes you do need haali installed if you want to manipulate the video. You should be able to just use the x86 version of haali if you just want to use it with eac3to, x64 platforms have support for both 32 bit and 64 bit filters. You will just not be able to use it with any x64 application but since eac3to has 32 bit source then you should be fine. In this instance you can't use it with VMC for but if you install the 32 bit MPC it should be fine. If you wanted you could install haali just for eac3to and the Guliverkli Matroska splitter for file parsing in VMC or simular. You could try the 64 bit splitter but eac3to will probably not recognise it since it was written to use haali.
Let me know how you get on with it, been thinking about moving to x64 version of Windows server 2008. After you have installed haali use the following command to see if eac3to recognises it:

eac3to.exe -test

P.S. The TrueHD track on Iron Man sounds amazing ....really felt immersed in the film . Hope that helps.
Cheers,
Jiff.

Strange ...never come across that one before. Are you running at 60 Hz by any chance? I always had audio drift problems at this refresh but they went away when I started to use multiples of 24. I may try that myself to see if the chapter info is causing the audio and video to go out of sync.

ac3filter is a very useful little program ...I used to use it to output ac3/5.1@640 kbps over SPDIF before I got the capability of multichannel PCM out via HDMI. Lots of options

i am using hdmi 5.1 for audio in my home theater, but not other places. for example my laptop has hdmi audio but only 2 channel.

i run at the best display mode i can use on several different playback devices and displays. only one display supports 24p or multiples so i mostly don't use those display modes. i am looking for the setting/methods that support the most devices possible with the least amount of effort/time/software.

i didn't use any fancy settings for the mkv file.....

eac3to.exe e: 1) 1:"D:\\Videos A\\chapters.txt" 2:"D:\\Videos A\ est.mkv" 3:"D:\\Videos A\ est.flac"

(if possible, it would be nice to just pick two tracks and output video + flac audio in one shot into mkv without a merge after. i could live with that except for foreign language titles. simple/fast/standard/no options)

mkvmerge with chapters = playback was a mess. the exact same files without chapters = perfection.

i don't normally care about chapters and i just threw them into the mix. they worked ok on one file. someday i will investigate further to see what the issue is.

Thanks! I had been planning to simply play back the resulting MKV file in TMT (I think I read in here that TMT does not downsample MKVs), which I have been using for BD playback. In this case I might only need Haali for the remuxing process.

If I can get a working MKV with high def audio I'll look into enabling VMC and WMP to play the MKV using a 64-bit splitter.

Thanks your your reply ....I'll investigate further weather my systems exibit the same issue. Never occured to me it could be the chapters screwing with the sync at 60Hz. I'll report back what I find.

Yeah that will be fine ...TMT doesn't downsample audio on mkvs so all good (install madflac tho). Let me know how it goes mate.

Hey Jiff. I was wondering, were you able to reproduce the subtitle error? I've been reading more about converting subtitles but it seems its still very problematic. I heard of a solution where you can have supread convert blu-ray to hd .sup and then have subtitle creator convert those to vobsub. Since you are converting to 480p though you lose image quality on the text but theres no OCR involved. I tried this but Supread displays a black picture only with pirates1 and pirates2.

Anyways, since we are dealing with pictures, instead of doing all of this OCR stuff. Couldn't we export the pictures in another format and have a feature in media players that could lay these pictures over our film? I'm not sure if any of this stuff exist but I wonder if this would be a better way of displaying subtitles.

On a side note. My first conversion looks fantastic, Pirates 1. I compared this with the source and I really can't tell the difference between the two. I'm very satisfied with the conversion. Once you have all the programs installed and know what to do its rather easy. I have a spare laptop doing the lifting, it's a 1.6 core2duo and I have some high settings so it takes 30 hours to do a conversion but the results are great. I just hope that having my second computer run like that is ok. I'm thinking of getting an external hard drive so the internal hard drive doesn't work so hard.

*edit*

Ok I just found out that suprip can output the files to png. I think I could think use subtitle creator to convert to vobsub. I don't know how to use command lines though :/ Could you tell me how to do this Jiff? This is from suprips website.

SupRip has just one command line option
suprip [titles_per_image] [spacing]
This command outputs the content of the sup file to a series of PNG images that can then be passed to another OCR software.
titles_per_image is an optional value that sets how many lines should be added to a PNG before the next one starts (default 20)
spacing is an option value for how many empty pixels should be added between subtitles (default 100)

What is it I need to type in? I know how to use the command line to point it to the suprip.exe but I have no idea what to do after that.
