There was another way that I could get the video to pass through without tsmuxer, but I'm not sure what I was doing because I didn't write it down. It's just the same as when I was using the Ulead/Corel software I noticed that if the video stream is packaged in different ways it can determine if the software transcodes.

This is just me, but I would not trade away discrete 5.1 audio to have menus.

My opinion is that all the relatively inexpensive software I've tried still has one drawback or other. In the video department TotalMedia is the only commercial software that I've seen pass anything full resolution besides interlaced video for AVCHD with menus, so if they ever would match their competitors in being able to pass audio it would be my clear choice for AVCHD & BDMV.

When I played the disc in my Sony BDP-S350 it looks completely messed up. The image is doubled (like a ghost effect). There is a vertical line right down the middle of the screen and the picture looks stretched as well.


Is there something I am doing wrong? Has anyone ever experienced this before?

^bump


Anyone? The MKV file plays just fine in QuickTime Pro or VLC - it just doesn't work when burned to a DVD-DL. Help!

I'm new to blu-ray burning, I tried Tsmuxer with imgburn and the movie which was a mpeg-2 1080i transport stream played great but when i skipped ahead on the chapters the picture froze and the audio played fine after 10 seconds or so the picture caught up

and then played fine did i set something wrong or is this common?

dargo,


Was it .ts file from cable box?

Did you burn it to DVD-+R/RW or BD-R/RE?

What did you use to play it: stand alone, PS3, PC?


Many times .ts files from cable box have glitches and other problems. I always run my .ts files through MPEG2Repair (free), and then through VideoReDO ($50). VideoReDo is very good at fixing problems in .ts files. Then I use tsMuxeR to re-mux .ts file into .m2ts or into Blu-ray structure.


I archived a bunch of videos onto DVD+R/RW disks using tsMuxeR and Blu-ray disk option. I burned those disks mostly with Nero 8 with UDF 2.50. When I play those disks in PS3 and press NEXT on remote to skip to the next chapter, my PS3 is freezing sometimes for several seconds, and then starts playing again from that next chapter. But I don't have anything like you described.

I burn to BD-R playing on a Samsung 1400 I use video redo as well as MPEG2repair

have never had a issue with dvd's and sounds like you get the same thing advancing to the next chapter causes the video to freeze, wondering if authoring with dvdit HD pro would elimanate the problem? costs $300 may have no choice to get a really good BD

burn that does not freeze

Well, in my case it doesn't happen with every chapter. It happens with some chapters, and, as far as I remember, mostly on DVD+R DL disks. It doesn't happen on DVD+RW disks. I will double check when I get home.


With BD-RE disks I didn't have that problem at all. I used Ulead DMF6+ to author BDMV project and burned with Nero.

dargo,


Looks like there is a fix for chapter problems. I found this on Doom9 forum:

Quote:
There is a fix out right now for the seeking issues with the PS3, it's a separate application that fixes the clpi file in the Blu-ray structure. It can be found in this thread, it called fixclpi.exe, there is also a gui. It works very well.
http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.ph...89#post1211389


I found the files and attached zip to my post.


I didn't try it yet. I will report when I do that.


EDIT:


I applied the fix and burned BDMV structure to DVD+RW. Now PS3 skips back and forth between chapters instantly. Great!

Ditto. This is nice. Seems like fast forward and reverse got smoother as well.

I am having a problem burning a blu-ray disk with Nero 9. I can burn a short disk (12 GB)with no problems. But when I try to burn a longer disk (40GB), Nero just shuts down after about 3 days. I am not present when it shuts down so I don't know what happened. Anybody have a similar problem?

Nero is "bloatware?"


Psst...I couldn't have put it more succinctly. Glad to find out I'm not the only one. I think it is intrusive and hijackful as well. Never again.

I have Nero 8 and I don't have any problems. I do custom install and some other tips. So, here it goes.

Custom Installation of Nero 8


Select Custom Install.

Uncheck check box for browser toolbar plug-in (whatever its name is).

Select Nero Burning Rom and any other application you need (I also use Nero Vision and Nero ShowTime).

Install Nero.


At the end of installation you get window with several tabs, one of those is for video files association, and one for audio files. Unselect all for video and audio, so Nero won't hijack your Windows files associations. Finish installation.


Now, here are some tips on how to clean up your computer from Nero pests.


I use utility called Startup Control Panel that I use to edit registry without going to REGEDIT.


Start StartupControlPanel and delete NeroFilterCheck entry, which located in HKLM/Run registry key tab.


Go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Computer Management, Services, and disable NMIndexingService.


Using Windows Explorer click on Program Files, click search, and type NM*.exe. Search will find a bunch of files that start with NM in file name:


NMBgMonitor.exe

NMFirstStart.exe

NMIndexingService.exe

NMIndexStoreSvr.exe

NMTVRecorder.exe

NMTvWizard.exe


Rename those files. I usually replace last e with _ (underscore) in the file extension.


Next, go to Start/All Programs/Nero 8/Nero Toolkit/ and click on "Nero Control Center". In Nero Control Center, click on the Update icon (Green arrow). Uncheck "Check for updates every: " box. Click "OK" button.


You can also disable key checking if you want. Look for a file named NeroPatentActivation.exe The path to that file can be found here: C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Nero\\Shared\\NL3\\NeroPatentActivation.exe. You need to either delete this file or rename it. If you decide to rename it, rename it something like this: NeroPatentActivation.exe.bak


And this is how you can Un-install NeroScout from your computer permanently:


Click Start, Run and type this:


regsvr32 /u "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Nero\\Lib\\MediaLibraryNSE.dll"


Enjoy your Nero without bloatware.

You can also run msconfig.exe and selectively disable the nerofiltercheck, and other bloatware, so that it just bypasses all of it on startup.


When you boot, you'll get a nag screen that windows has blocked some startup programs, which you can make go away by right-clicking on it and choosing "exit."


There's a few things I like Nero for, the burning rom of course, but also the wav editor for audio is easy.


Forgive me for taking the opportunity to pounce on Nero, but I think I know what they are, and they suk. I also think it's "bugware" that doesn't get fixed before the next release that you have to pay for. At least that's what happened to me when version 9 came out about a week after I paid for version 8, and they want, I forget the exact amount but about $99 or so to upgrade to 9.


I have Vegas Pro 8.0(c), and I have Video Redo, and I have Movie Factory, and I have Nero, and maybe some others, but if I had to keep only ONE, the one that really does the most things with the most speed and simplicity, it's Womble MPEG Video Wizard DVD. If you combine that with TSmuxeR and ImgBurn, I think you probably have the most versatile collection of toolsets for the minimalist for mpeg-2, including AC3 5.1, multiplex and demultiplexing streams, smart rendering, fast scrubbing timeline editor. Womble is really fast and easy. It's only 8 bit so you don't want to use it for color grading, but it has a nice library of transitions, a simple title editor, basic audio controls, a basic h.264 encoder, DVD authoring some useful utilities and more. It's only for mpeg, not AVCHD.


I'll shoot a 1920x1080/p24 video in Sony XDCAM 35 mbps VBR, use Vegas Pro to color grade, and mix a discrete 5.1 dolby digital audio track, export the the video and audio streams separately, but thereafter use Womble to finish the project, mux it all back together and get it ready for TSmuxeR.

Hey Everyone.


Has anyone tried the latest version of pinnacle to try and make menus work with AVCHD. I can get my Panasonic BDP-30 to play the AVCHD Disks but I can't get it play them if I use a menu.


Thanks.

T.

I've never used the product because they don't offer a trial and generally these programs have too many little issues to blind buy in my opinion. When the program came out the reports were that it didn't do menus with AVCHD, only BDMV, but http://pinnacle.custhelp.com/cgi-bin...?p_faqid=17983 says that it does menus now. I thought the Panasonic played AVCHD with menus, but there are too many players to keep track of what plays what anymore. Have you tried an AVCHD with menus from another product? The AVCHD in the link below was created with Arcsoft that you could try to determine if it's the player or software.

I have been using tsmuxer for some time now to burn HD OTA recordings (MPEG II) and HD-PVR recordings (MEPG IV) to blu-ray on DVD-DL. I use the blu-ray option in tsmuxer and then burn the folders it creates to DVD-DL using nero (udf 2.5).


I now have a blu-ray burner. I did the exact same thing but this time the resultant BDMV (on 25 GB blu-ray disk) does not play back. All I get is a black screen (on the PS3) and a pause/play flicker on top of a black screen with my Samsung BDP-1500. I've read throught he thread. Can anyone provide me any suggestions as to where I've gone wrong? I've read through the thread and can't seem to find an answer.

I'm very interested in how this turns out for you. I don't think TSmuXer is going to work because it's making an AVCHD wrapper. I'm reading about some rather abysmal player compatibility with BD-R/RE media, but the Samsung 1500 was one of the players that was working in the case I read about.


Do you have something else to try, maybe Corel Movie Factory?
