when i'm using dvd mf to make dvds with multiple shows, one of the steps that i have to do is a simple mux in tmpgenc. i can automate most of the rest of it up to that point, but the mux is a time waster.

is there any way to batch simlpe mux (or other mpeg tools jobs) in tmpgenc, or will one of the other commad line tools do the job?

thanks,

ronny

Funny, I've been looking for the exact same thing from TMPGEnc. I have to use TMPGEnc because mplex messes up on files > 2 gig (and yes, i use the %d option). Anyway, I went searching and found that there is no command line support for TMPGEnc.

I guess it will be offered in their "TMPGEnc Server" project which has not been released. But the Free and Plus versions don't have the option of command line or batching of anything in the MPEG Tools submenu.

Others have said they use Windows automation software which simulates you being there. Though I think thats way too much work.. :)

So if you can't batch mux, what is the batch project part of tmpgenc for? I have tried to get it to batch mux and it only does one...

The batch feature for TMPGEnc is for encodes, not muxes unfortunately. For an alternative, you can batch mux with bbmpeg.

So maybe I'm not understanding. What is the real difference in this context? If I have an m2v that complies, an m2a that needs changing from 48khz to 44.1khz, and want the end result to be an svcd complant mpeg, is that true muxing or is it transcoding?

Here (http://www.innsys.com.au/doylie/cat_Development/TMPEG_Batcher/TMPEG_List.asp) is a link to a batch creator front end for TMPGEnc. I haven't tried it yet, but it seems you'd have to create a template first that matches what simple remux does. I have no clue what that is.

YMMV

I'll give it a shot. The desc says it's mostly for converting avi to svcd but we'll see if I can get it to work for this.

You could just get a version of mplex compiled with large file support... or make one yourself. The one I found on the net after much searching had no large file support... so I got the mjpegtools source and compiled the mplex part under cygwin, it only took a few minutes to get it working and now I have mplex working just fine on 2.1GB+ streams with no stupid splitting at the 2.1GB mark... in fact it just muxed a 6GB+ MPEG for me...

I'd post my compile here but I don't know what all is required to get it working, it might just be the cygwin dll, but I'm not sure...
