Been a while since I posted, but I am curious:
My DVRMS converted file, Titanic either has errors in it, since the CCExtractor 0.59... won't extract past the first cut commerical break, or the alternative option I want to try (before re-watching the film for timecode cuts and edits next time) gives me some guff about something known as a required component called Hallai Muxer, needed to be installed.
Ok, let me back up a little: I converted my source .wtv recording, to a source file with the .dvr-ms extension... just like I used to in prior times; second, I used DTBVE to find the commercial timecodes needing cut and produced a commercial-free .dvr-ms file of Titanic. (So instead of a 16GB, 4.5 hour "TV recording", I cut it down to a 10.5GB, 185 minute "TV recording").
Now, because that 185-minute "dvr-ms" recording won't extract the CC data, in the latest version of CCExtractor... yet the source .dvr-ms file will, I'm a little bit puzzled.
So attempting to fix this problem, I would like to know (before re-viewing the show and placing those time-codes again) where and how to find this "Haali Muxer" add-in, to fully enable the features of DTBVE. These features in DTBVE could prove easy and useful for me (e.g. splitting files, extracting CC, and video conversion)... so it'd be my first choice to pursue an MKV conversion in VE, for my future files.
My questions for this post require some sort of advice; I only just began discovering the power and benefits of the MKV format: Quality and Compression equivalent to MPEG-4 video, and with a little more exploration, the CCs could be used as Caption data in my AVCHD disc (from Nero 10+ Platinum) output.
What are answers to these questions/scenarios:
1. I cannot seem to resolve the error message in the DTB Video Editor, in order to pursue an extraction and conversion to MKV within the application. This may be my preferred method for handling .wtv/.dvr-ms source files.
2. I am curious if I need to start with a .wtv source file extension, and not a .dvr-ms file before working on it; if .wtv is the way to go, what would I need to find/install to support .wtv files' edits
3. Are there known bugs in 188.8.131.52 version and/or CCExtractor 0.59+, which you may be aware of (and I am not), requiring a revert to 184.108.40.206, the associated DTB Add-in file and/or CCExtractor 0.58 as a solution.
If none of those solutions work, please suggest how I should go about this process in-general.
I am just trying to author, maybe convert these to output to disc. I may stick with SD discs in AVC encoded (720x480) WS, files... or maybe the Basic HD (1280x720) WS res.; it's my personal choice. All I care about is a DVD disc of my recordings, with some high quality, yet compressed files before burning, WS res. and CC data (as either "English subtitle" style or equivalent display).
That's all I'm after. I know how to prepare these captions, convert the video, author & burn the discs, etc. I just need some basic instructions to these minor problems. Hey, even MKV files are new to me so far... (I literally just found out about this file, through a Best Buy Geek Squad agent's suggestion).
Okay, I know that's alot of info, but I hope it provides enough details for now.
My system is Win 7. Ult. (32-bit), 4 GB memory, and Pentium 4 proc. (I know my system needs upgrading soon for speed and performance...).
Thank-You for reading this,
