problems converting WTV to MP4

Postby timnic » 25. Jan 2012, 21:43

Hi

I have used MC-TV converter once successfully when I tried a second time on a different WTV file it finished after a short period only coverting a few minutes

I have copied the debug file here

What do I need to do to get reliable conversion?

thanks

Hi and welcome! Thanks for the log!
If you want to install JAVA, this may fix the problem, because another tool is used for conversion then (which is also a LOT faster!).
If you don't want to install JAVA or the error persists, you can try to set cut points for conversion - say start 5 or 10 sec. after recording or directly try to cut only the part you want to keep.
Another possibility would be, to change the profile. Open the "profiles.ini", search for "[hidden_tshq]" and change the command from this profile from:
Code: Select all
command=-deinterlace -vcodec mpeg2video -sameq -acodec ac3 -ab 384k -ac 6 -async 48000

to:

Code: Select all
command=-deinterlace -vcodec mpeg2video -sameq -acodec copy -async 48000


OR (this will convert audio to stereo but maybe works best for you (this stream is stereo anyway):
Code: Select all
command=-deinterlace -vcodec mpeg2video -sameq -acodec libmp3lame -ar 48000 -ab 128k -ac 2 -async 48000


Problem is, that ffmpeg gets errors on the audio stream and aborts conversion then.
Let me know if one of these works for you!
