I looked at activity monitor while transcoding. The QT process never used more than 100% of the CPU which means it was only using a single CPU.

And MPlayer remains the best movie player on Mac... Perian 1.1 can't recognize the sound in one of my MKVs apparently. And it somehow manages far worse H264 performance when using the same codec.

What's the sound encoded in?

Thumbs up

Thanks so much for this thread. It saved me so much headache with the overlapping subtitles! VLC was a mess with this, and when the subs did show up, they looked extremely fugly.

This Mplayer build is light years ahead of the crappy Sourceforge version I was using up until now too.

Both of these are Apple's bugs. If your file is HE-AAC they'll hopefully both be fixed soon; I'm waiting to see if they fix their dev tools bugs along with the iPhone SDK before making an update. Otherwise get me the file and I'll fix it.

Am i the only one with problems with Mplayer + wireless?

On tiger i could sucessfully view a MKV file via wireless without any problems, lately on Leopard i've noticed that i can't do the same thing again... i don't remember if i could do it with 10.5 but i'm almost sure that 10.5.1 couldn't.

Anyone got the same problem?

It's Real Media's format. If you have an Intel mac, MPlayer should be able to do it with the aid of a windows DLL. If you've got a PPC Mac, I... am not sure but you might have to download Real's own player (highly evil).

Realplayer on OS X isn't evil. It just kind of sucks. The beta of 11 isn't horrible.

Realplayer on Mac is actually really awesome. It's just a player - nothing more, nothing less. Unlike the windows version, which proceeds to tentacle rape your system and lay eggs the minute you install the damn thing.

Does any body who use 2.1 speakers have problem with video that comes in 6.1 channel?

On my machine (macbook C2D and 2 speakers system), the main sounds (voice) just comes out only on my left speaker (just like center speaker on 5.1 system), and the right speakers will only give background sound which works (like a rear speaker in the 5.1 system.) How can I change this back to normal 2.1 channel? I know one can change this easily in VLC.

Try:
Code:
-channels 2
If you really insist on 2.1 you need to use -af channels but that's not for the faint of heart (read the manpage if you want to get your brain tied into a pretzel).

Hey thanks, that's a bit better. I have no problem with 5.1 sounds, just 6.1. So I won't use this command that often!

@ sk3

What kind of wireless link are we talking about here? 802.11n, I hope? I know that Leopard has had some major issues (read: kernel panics) with sustained high bandwidth wifi transfers, so I wonder if you're running into something nasty in the networking stack. That aside, are you having issues with other data transfers across your network?

H.264 video (avc1) and AAC audio (mp4a). As for sending you the file, the video isn't exactly legal to distribute to others since it's a backup for one of my DVDs. Thanks for the offer, though. If this is on Apple's side, hopefully their next update will fix it.

Does not compute, you're on a forum whose very existence is based on people distributing files to each other in a highly illegal fashion. If you can't be assed to upload it, just say so, it's OK to be lazy.

(by the way I'm quite sure that at least in the US, distributing a backup copy to only one other person is akin to lending them the DVD or something and falls under fair use)

This forum's printed rules seem to disagree with your statement. I'd hardly call following those rules being lazy. It's not like getting a Megaupload or something similar takes more than a minute to set up, so I'm not sure where this jumped-to conclusion and this hostility are coming from.

The forum rules say "all Messages requesting, providing, or otherwise discussing information about the use of illegally obtained media, or any service that aids in the illegal acquisition of such media, is expressly forbidden" which does not conflict with PM'ing MrVacBob a link to a legal backup copy of a legally obtained DVD. There's also the fact that you're not trying to distribute the file but to get a software bug fixed; I have a hard time seeing why the mods would infract you for that.
Incidentally, citing the rules for this is kind of shaky ground to stand on, because said rules contradict themselves (all fansubs are most definitely illegally obtained and distributing them is most definitely illegal). Contradictions and hypocrisy is the traditional Fansub Way. That's offtopic though.

The first few MB is enough, anyway.
Plus if you can run mkvinfo, and the codec name is in the list in http://trac.perian.org/changeset/811, I already fixed it!

Thanks, the codec is indeed in that list (A_AAC/MPEG2/LC/SBR). You guys are really on top of things!
