mkv/ogm files?

Post by wallflower » May 9th, '07, 03:04

I have a question regarding mkv and ogm files -- it seems like the subtitles aren't hardsubbed in it.. Although I'm not 100% because it's not like softsubs where it has a seperate file. But I can tell it's softsubbed due to the font - I can change it manually on my player. Well, anyway, for both of those files, how do you remove the subtitles when converting it to, say, an avi?

If they subtitles are not hardsubbed in, I would think you could just turn them off and then copy it. If you're playing a mkv/ogm in VideoLan (VLC) there's an option under the video tab to turn subtitles on and off.
...or did you already try that?

using virtualdubmod, go to streams and you'll see that the subtitles are in there.

alternatively, there are OGM splitters on videohelp.com that will demux(separate) the file into video, audio, and i THINK srt.

you should be able to do a direct copy w/o any conversion. however, i think the audio will be in OGM or something so you might want to convert it to mp3 or something.

it's been a while since i've touched virtualdub, so all of this is being pulled from the back of my head. you may have to do some tinkering beyond what i've mentioned.

Thanks a bunch. Your memory is quite reliable. :lol

Hey, adding on to my question, and I hope you don't mind, I wanted to know how to make it convert WITH sound. I'm basically making a fanvid, so no sound needed, but there's a part where she talks and I enable sound. However, I have a subsitute way on how to get sound there, but it's a lot of work, so I was wondering if there's a shortcut by just converting w/ sound.
Oh, and, can vdub convert in batches?

lol, glad my memory still serves me well. you mean convert the OGM audio to MP3 from within virtualdub? i think you right click the audio stream, set it to full conversion or something, and change the compression to what you want. i dont remember it being able to use the LAME mp3 codec that a lot of people use, though. if it doesnt, rip the audio and convert it with some other program...audacity i think is the popular free audio program. if you convert the audio before the video conversion, add the stream in. if you convert the audio after you already did your video converion, just open the video, add the audio stream, set both to direct stream copy, and it'll just mux them together with no additional encoding. should take like 10 seconds to depending on your system.

let's hope my memory was still good when i wrote this reply ^_~

Din't try to convert MKV or OGM but I usually used this way to convert files.. try it it may works with u..
Open the file u want to convert in Virtualdub >> Video >> comperssion >> then choose the codec ( Xvid , x264 , Divx) then when u choose the codec there is a button ( configuration) here u need to fill more info about the file to minimize the output but if u don't know what to fill in just choose the codec >> ok & go to file >> save as avi .. It'll take a time depend on the codec u have been choosen :-)
Taking break for quite a long time.. :-)

^^what he said :-)

you can get that tool here: http://www.matroska.org/downloads/windows.html

Not sure but I don't think VirtualDub supports MKV filetypes based on your finding but VirtualDubMOD does, which you can also download at that link above. With it you can view the streams audio/subtitles within the file but as it says on the website, newer version of MKV files aren't supported as VirtualDub/VirtualDubMOD aren't being worked on anymore.
