Hello folks. I’ve got a couple of questions I’m hoping some bright mind might help me out with.
I converted one of my favorite TV series to mkv with Handbrake’s High Profile using AC3 passthru for sound. The problem is, out of 24 episodes, a few of them have the video running at almost 2x the speed thereby de-synchronizing the video with the sound. To fix this I ran the files through the AVI-Mux GUI program. It fixes the files quite nicely thereby de-muxing, re-muxing the files with the correct synchronization. My question (Part A): Why would Handbrake do this for some episodes from the same disk but not the others? (Part B): I read that running the files through mkvmerge 4.0 will do the same thing. Why perform this second step if Handbrake is supposed to create compatible files anyway for the WD TV Live?
Along the lines of the first question, I’ve embedded the original subtitles into the mkv. The good thing about it is, the subtitles are synchronized properly, but for some reason, some of the subtitles appear perfectly solid while others only appear as black outlines. Is there anyway of fixing these with either AVI-Mux GUI or mkvmerge?
Thanks in advance for your help!
