Question-2 Q: Encode mkv to mkv

Hi guys,

sorry for bothering you, but I didn't succeed in solving this problem myself:

I want to encode a mkv file to a mkv file with specific bitrate etc.
In the end it should look like this:

Because my computer is able to play this file but not the one I know want to reencode.
Could you please tell me what to put in meGUI (or any other encoder/GUI)
to get a file exactly like that? With all those command lines I feel like

Thanks in advance!

You could try this:
http://www.videohelp.com/tools/Quick_AVI_Creator

it uses x264 encoder. When it pops up the video encode window, just enter the bitrate. Also you should use the Preview Window to get the last frame number, or the frame number where the end credits starts, so it will encode the end credits with fewer bits. If you don't want to bother with that just enter the number of the last frame. Then it will use the bitrate across the whole file.

Unfortunately QAC crashes when I'm trying to load my video.
I'll have to try something different.

Must be a problem vid. I don't recall it crashing on any avi or mkv I've run with it.

edit: I'm assuming you have AviSynth installed? I don't think it installs that. Just AvsP app.

Also you could try doing x264 "by hand." Use a demuxer to split off the audio. Process the video by itself, remux audio and video. That is if the audio is ok as it is. If it's AC3 I usually run ac3fix on it just to check for bad frames.

You can use the mkvtoolnix and related guis to mux/demux
