I'm curious, when you do it this way, does mkvmerge demux the files temporarily before remuxing? I'd assume so as even makemkv works that way and its makemkv is just a different GUI for mkvmerge.
Mkvmerge creates and starts writing to the new file immediately, not 100% sure if that means no intermediate steps but that's what I've been thinking. Works well for me regardless, and as I posted earlier I also use mkvmerge to strip out unneeded subtitle tracks (after determining which track represents english foreign language "forced" subs) so it's an easy workflow for me.

However I see that the standalone mkvmerge gui app is scheduled to be deprecated in an upcoming release, with those features rolled into a new mktvtooolnix gui. So, another program to learn, and those screenshots I posted will probably not be much good in a few weeks lol.

This thread has been rolled back to the most recent on-topic post. Some legitimate posts may have been lost in the rollback. For that, I apologize.

Stay on topic, please.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.

For you Handbrake aficionados:
I'm experimenting with converting HDTV MPEG-2 captures from my TiVo's into H.264/AVC. The TiVo transfer software, kmttg has the option to decrypt and run Handbrake on the file to do it all in 1 shot from a single batch interface. kmttg runs Handbrake from the CLI and so the various Handbrake encoding "profiles" available in kmttg are just text strings of the Handbrake command line parameters. I can modify or create my own kmttg Handbrake "profiles".

  • What is the directionality of the CRF factor? The profile I'm experimenting with has CRF=21 and appears to over-compress the source. If I want better quality with less compression do I increase or decrease the CRF.
  • If I install and run the Handbrake GUI to set up a bunch of parameters, can I get the CLI parameter string out of the GUI without actually running Handbrake, so I can use it to create my own kmttg profile?

The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of the low price is forgotten . . . life is too short to drink bad wine
