eac3to don't change the fps of video streams unless you specify a new one. For instance:

eac3to INPUT 1: output.h264 -changeTo23.976

and only fix values like -changeTo23.976, 24.000, 25.000, ... are available.
You never can change to 27.730 with eac3to.

Put a MediaInfo of your source.

Yes, "process" was probably a poor choice of words. But this is what I noticed when I looked at the log for "Deep Rising":

And what is the fps of extracted video?:

[v02] Creating file "H:\Mux\Video_2.h264"...

Is 27.730p? Or 2: h264/AVC, 1080p 24 /1.001 (16:9)?

I think than the 27.730p is only a wrong info but the video is not changed.

Please use MediaInfo with the two 00008.m2ts and 00004.m2ts in Advanced Mode, to see durations in seconds, not only minutes.
Maybe the audio tracks are different.

The 27.730p comes from trying to interpret the m2ts packet time stamps. *Usually* this matches the video fps, but sometimes not. You can safely ignore this information. It's probably eac3to misunderstanding the timestamps somehow, or the timestamps containing unusually high jitter or something...

I've figured out why there's an incorrect audio delay. The problem is that the DTS track begins playing at the very beginning of the file (00008.m2ts, which is supposed to be a silent 11-second title card), even though it isn't supposed to start until the actual movie (00004.m2ts).

I'm not sure where the issue stems from, since the 00004.mpls file itself is fine. Could it actually be a problem with mkvmerge?

When the first m2ts don't have the same audio streams, eac3to most the times crash.

If not you can forget the first 11-second credit and work only with the 00004.m2ts, or delay all streams not present in 00008.m2ts.

eac3to "H:\Mux\Audio_3_Undetermined.DTS" "H:\Mux\Audio_3_Delayed.DTS" +11100ms
...

Hello there, I'm having question to BR demuxing.
If the media contains two or more surround audio tracks being DTS-HD Master Audio and TrueHD, which one is expected the have lossless layer more fidelity?
And is eac3to always using the lossless layer when extracting to PCM/FLAC/WAV?
Last question, how do I view which codec is eac3to using to decode DTS(HD) and TrueHD, can I configure it?

As both are lossless audio formats, they have the capability of sounding exactly the same.

Freeze at "Muxing video to Matroska"

I am using EAC3TO 3.34 with a GUI and using Staxrip 1.9 with version 3.34.

I am using a bluray ISO file which I have ripped and want to encode to a smaller MKV file.

If I use either software, I am able to choose the playlist I want to perform work on and then I select only the video portion, no audio and no subtitle (have tried both ways) and the process stops after a few seconds.

There is no log file generated. The size or playlist or bluray file do not matter.

This same process works on one 2015 Macbook Pro and one 2010 custom desktop, but not on newer 2017 Macbook Pro and 2017 iMac. All these computers are running Windows 10 natively via bootcamp.

If I change the output from MKV to h264, the process completes, but not vice versa.

Copy of status window is below and last line is the last status print out at 1% with no further progress even after hours.

Can anyone advise how to extract a bluray playlist to MKV given this issue? I have tried every version of EAC3TO over the last 1 year with the same results.


M2TS, 1 video track, 6 audio tracks, 10 subtitle tracks, 1:48:06, 24p /1.001
1: Chapters, 28 chapters
2: h264/AVC, 1080p24 /1.001 (16:9)
3: DTS Master Audio, English, 7.1 (strange setup) channels, 24 bits, 48kHz
(core: DTS-ES, 5.1 channels, 1509kbps, 48kHz)
4: AC3, English, 5.1 channels, 448kbps, 48kHz
5: AC3, Spanish, 5.1 channels, 448kbps, 48kHz
6: AC3, French, 5.1 channels, 448kbps, 48kHz

Why not use MKVToolnix GUI to do the job if there's no need to process audio but use it as it is? Eac3to is really not a muxing tool.

I want to use Staxrip to compress using h265 and either convert the audio or transfer it over depending on what I want to use the smaller file to do.

The trial without the audio was to focus on the fact that I can't create a MKV regardless of the options I choose and it is linked to issues with EAC3TO whether being called through Staxrip or as a stand along program.

Usually with the eternal beta version of makeMKV. The purpose of eac3to is mainly to process audio only, not everything.
