Windows 7: Splicing video

Splicing video

The output from a movie that I just encoded, came out atypically, in that instead of a single file, it had four, as seen in the screenshot. Of course, I can play the sections together as a batch, but for reasons that don't see any point in going into, I want to splice these sections into one file as they should be.

After a bit of Googling, it seemed that the common answer to this problem was to use Windows Movie Maker, but of course, in Windows 7 that means Windows Live Movie Maker (don't know if there is a difference or not?).

When selecting that wlmp file, all that it does is to reopen the files in WLMM, where it will play the files in sequence, but is notin a fashion usable in VLC. How does one create a TRUE splice, useable in any player of choice?

MKV and MP4 Files - Merge into a Single File

Recoding would be a lst resort IMO, as its times consuming, and you end up with more quality loss.
This just remuxes, and is rather quick.


As far as the encode coming out in Multiple files, is ther an option in the encoder you are using to "Split" ?
Perhaps disable it if so, or change it to a really high value, like 50GB.

Ive actually not had this happen before, so a bit confused as to why it would encoding it that way.

I shall reply by saying that I don't think that the problem was produced by any settings used in the encoder, because they are the same as I've always used, and this is a first for this problem. Actually, it failed altogether with WinX DVD Ripper Platinum, because it always terminated with a *success* window, after only running a couple of minutes. After going through their FAQ, it seemed that the only viable answer that there was something odd in the fashion that the DVD was written. I suppose that is possible, since the DVD was produced in Korea.

What I did show in the screenshot above, was made using DVDFab, and though it has failed in a variety of ways, never quite like this. I will now try the link that you provided and cross my fingers.

At first, it appeared that it worked properly, but after noting the warnings as seen in the screenshot, I ran the first few minutes of the movie to check. It started out as expected, but in short order, the voice audio disappeared, while the music played on. After maybe a minute, the voice audio continued, but where it had left off, not where it should have been. The gap between audio and video was so great, that not even calling it out of sync would be a good description.

The warning in the screenshot was so vague to me, that it is useless, unless you understand it better?

Remux is the wrong word to use in this situation.
Remux is what you do when you combine different signals back together, like an Audio, Video, and Subtitle file into one file.

I've used this program to join some video clips in the past,
Video Joiner/Merger to join video, AVI Joiner, MPEG joiner, join AVI,join MPEG.

Thanks, but the trial version will allow only 2 files to be merged, and I'm not inclined to buy it just to test it out.

join 2, then join the joined one with one more and then do it one more time.

Hmm, after thinking about it, I decided to give BoilSoft another shot, by doing multiple joinings of sequential files, two by two. However that produced an error, saying that merging wasn't possible, because the files were of a different frame rate. Rechecking the main window, the first file was at 29.97 FPS, as expected, but the second was only 23.976 FPS, even though all of these files were created at the same time, without changing any settings.

As too often is the case, the more that I dig, the deeper that I get, without finding the bottom.


EDIT: Didn't see your last post before posting this, but we seem to have been on the same frequency.

If by time frame, you mean the FPS, then yes I can choose, but oddly enough, when I just reencoded the video from scratch, I found that the first section was 876 bps, while the trailing 3 sections were only 768 bps. If I understand correctly, those rates can be translated into FPS, such as 29.97FPS, so I sped up the later three sections to equal the speed of the first.

After completing the encode, I played each section for a few minutes, and while not noticing much, if any difference in the audio or video character in the last 3 sections, the first one was still messed up by there not being any voice audio, only music and sound effects. I hate to think it, but I'm beginning to feel that this video is a lost cause, and will only be able to play it directly from the DVD.
