mkv2vob cutting video short

post #1 of 12

Hello, now of so many files, when I try to convert a mkv file so I can play it on the PS3, that file gets cut short by 3 to 10 minutes. Anyone know why? Thanks.

From my experience there is a problem with the MKV file. Either the file is out of specs or something else. I have had a few of these and no program that would make it viewable on the PS3 would work. Usually in this case I either convert it to avi using AVIDEMUX or make it a DVD with ConvertXtoDVD.

What is weird is that it is every file I use now.

I've had that problem lately as well. It's been hit-or-miss but I've noticed that certain "authors" are better at preparing the files than others...

Try and see if you can use an older version. The newest I think had a few issues. Good Luck

Well it was a good idea but I tried it and sure enough it didn't work. Is everyone with doing mkv files intentionally screwing with mkv2vob? Seriously it went from being a couple files to now every single one. I can still use PS3 media server but I hate leaving my computer on like that, it's on enough as it is.

I found a way to fix it. I was getting this problem with only "Showtime" T.V. Shows (Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Dexter). I found this odd because i download HBO shows that have a longer duration with no cutoff after converting the MKV file. It pisses me off becuase the converted file cuts off the last 5-7 minutes, which is the most suspensful part of the show. So I was up until 6 a.m. trying to find a solution, just so I could see the last few minutes of Dexter. This is the guaranteed fix.

1. Download mkvmergeGui (Copy and paste link). This will remux the file and create a duplicate mkv. It's easy, just select the mkv file. Once you have
selected the file, select "Extra Options" and select "None" for uncompression on both video and sound. Then click on start Remuxing.

2. Once the file has finished remuxing from mkvmerge, convert it through mkv2vob (no change required for options). Once it has completed, the new converted file will play in its entire duration.

I did this and realized I got 5 hours of sleep just to see the last unsuspensful 6 minutes of Dexter.
