Did it create a 264 file with reasonable filesize that plays in VLC? If so I don't understand why DGAVCDec don't run after mkvextract, it does here. If there is a 264 file what happens if you open this manually with StaxRip?

It creates a 264 file that's viewable in VLC, but if I add that file as a source it gives me the same error: "The format is not supported".

If you create a mkv x264 file with StaxRip and then open it with StaxRip, does it load?

It does. I think there is something particular about this file, as another mkv just opened perfectly. I tried creating a new version of the original non-working file with MKVMerge, but the same error happens.

*Scratch that. Just tried a third mkv - same error. So that's two that produce the same error now.

I can reproduce it so I can investigate it.

Problem is the DGAVCDec preparer is restricted to AVC format but MediaInfo don't return AVC as format for the 264 file, likely a MediaInfo bug, to workaround remove the AVC restriction in the options, I'll make a bug report to MediaInfo.

Thanks for the research into this issue. How would I go about applying the workaround? Is this something I can do myself?

Like I stated you have to remove the AVC format from the input format list of the DGAVCDec preparer so all formats get handled.

Yeah, I tried that and it doesn't stick. If I delete AVC and click ok, then click Edit again it's still there.

Nice, that works now, thank you.

Unrelated issue regarding DTS tracks: What's the best way to have StaxRip handle those? Should I be converting before bringing into the app, or is there a method in which it can encode directly from DTS to AAC 2ch?

@Albo

I've changed the defaults now to workaround the problem, there is now one DGAVCDec preparer handling the extensions 264, h264 and avc regardless of the format returned by MediaInfo and then there is a second DGAVCDec preparer that handles the extensions ts and m2ts in case MediaInfo returns AVC as format. I've not uploaded it yet however (I don't want to shutdown uTorrent right now).

Great! Look forward to using the new version. I've also solved my DTS issue by using a Mac-based solution for the re-encoding, and then muxing to an mp4 in Windows.
