Video Splitter / Aspect ratio problems in Video Splitter
« on: May 20, 2008, 07:01:36 AM »

Firstly thank you for this great little program that does big things extremely well!

But: I'm trimming PAL TV-programs and find that the aspect ratio is wrong in trimmed files. You can see the difference just by looking the resulting video (of course :) ) and from the properties of the file being played. These captures are from Windows Media Player 10.

As you can see, the aspect ratio is not all that is lost, also audio & video codec information is gone too.

I think that this has something to do with the functionality which copies file information (title, description etc.) while trimming, since when I try to trim with earlier version of video trimmer without this function aspect ratio remains correct. I studied this issue little and found out that the aspect ratio can be written in many places in a single video file and they have a certain order where one supercedes another. My suspect is ASF headers, because among other things they have a possibility to choose  non-square pixels unlike many other header types:

I do think that the copying file info is a very useful function but unfortunately in this case it makes the video image look bad. So could you please take a look into this? If no quick solution is no available could you please add option where user can choose if the header information is copied or not?

Thank you in advance!

Video Splitter / Video Splitter and file metadata
« on: January 03, 2007, 12:30:24 PM »

I've been using Video Splitter for a while now and I'd like to suggest that you add a functionality to transfer all of the source files metadata (name, description, year etc.) to the trimmed one (if user decides so).

I use splitter a lot with files containing metadata and it is frustrating to copy these manyally, since I believe that it would require next to nothing to implement this functionality ;)

So how about it?

Video Splitter / Video Splitter problems
« on: October 09, 2006, 10:56:07 PM »

I recently bought the Video Splitter and two separate problems have arised:

Firstly, when I try to move in the wmv file towards the end using arrow keys and there are black frames in the movie the program slows down dramatically and the processor load rises well above normal, sometimes nearly 100 %. I use the latest updates of Windows and have re-installed all of the WM codecs without luck.

Secondly, when I try to use the batch convert the following problem occurs: I drag-and-drop multiple files to the program thus creating a batch queue. I edit individual files and when trying to start the batch trim only the first one gets converted and the others just get "ran through", meaning that the progress indicator moves really fast through all of the files on the list yet doing nothing.

I've noticed that when opening the .xtl file I can see that the program adds " as_value="00:07:09.49"" parameter to each "track"-object. Removing this from all of the "track" objects seems to solve the problem in most cases. But where does this as_value come from?

Please try to help to fix these problems, because I really like this program and it's user interface.
