Video Splitter / Hanging during splitting
« on: May 15, 2016, 11:08:47 PM »
I am trying to cut a video into fragments for use in another app, hence being interested in the "smart rendering" feature where only the part between K frames is rerendered. Unfortunately I can only do between 0 and 5 of these for each time I launch the program - the issue described here: is basically what I am seeing - that dialog appears and the progress bar never increases. Sometimes the Cancel button works, sometimes not and I have to End Task. This is not a new problem (I bought Solveig MM Video Splitter Home Edition in November 2015) and is persisting between versions. If I can successfully Cancel a failed fragment save, then the same thing happens again when I try to save it again. I have to close the program and reopen it in order to save the fragment. After doing that, I can usually save 1-2 fragments, but sometimes it's 0, sometimes it might be up to 5, before the same issue reappears.

It is, to put it nicely, utterly infuriating.

If I try to Save All Fragments As (which I would much rather do) instead of individual Save Selected Fragment As, the first 0-4 are usually OK, but then a couple of "junk" files get created (not valid video, size varies, often 356 or 752 bytes, maybe a couple of kb), and it eventually reverts to the stuck dialog behaviour above.

System & file details:
Machine: i7-6700K, 16GB RAM, Windows 10 Home 64bit
Currently, SolveigMM Video Splitter Home Edition v5.2.1603.25 (but has happened with every version since I bought it)

As you can see from above, it's quite large so posting the video is pretty much out of the question.

I am cutting up video from Twitch (, which is where all the files I work with are from. The same issue has happened on every single one I've used.

Is there a debug console I can run to find out what it's dying on? It seems like some internal process fails and never tells the front end there's an error. Anything else I can do?
