I noticed a problem with mkvmerge, it can't read mkv files created by latest VDubMod 126.96.36.199 (build 2066). I reproduced a problem with both converted old avi files created via direct stream copy and using a new clip created from scratch using this avs script: ==== blank.avs
I compressed it with divx 5.0.5 and saved as an mkv file from VDM. When trying to read the file with mkvmerge the following error
C:>mkvmerge -i test1.mkv Error: Demultiplexer failed to initialize:
matroska_reader: Failed to read the headers.
This is really annoying because VDM does not have a knob to adjust aspect ratio of video streams, and the shell extension also fails to set that info with an error message.
The trouble is probably caused by VDM writing wrong headers, however MPC 188.8.131.52 plays such files without any problem, and mkvinfo does not
show anything abnormal:
- EBML head
If you need any additional info, please tell me. I also attached a small clip (38KB) that exibits such a problem.
