Error: Too Short
« on: December 31, 2016, 11:49:57 AM »
When trying to save edited video (recording of a live stream, removed pauses) I get "Too Short" error and the video is not saved properly. Exact error:
Code: [Select]
---------------------------
Too short
---------------------------
The video has been saved but seems to be incomplete.
---------------------------

Video information: see attachment. Avidemux: 2.6.16 64-bit version from official site.

You are using this method: Fast Edit with Copy Mode (3'14) ?

If not what is the selected:
- Video Output (Mpeg ...)
- Audio Output (AAC ...)
- Output Format (MKV ...)

Do please check the audio track in Avidemux Menu: Audio: Select Track.

Could be a mono issue, ...

I think yes. I open the video (it says the decoder is "Lavcodec RGB". Video and audio are set to copy mode, output format - to "MP4 muxer". I delete (not cut) the pieces I don't need and save the result.

Try mp4v2 instead of mp4.

If this does not work, try method from video:
cut lead out:
- go to where you want to start your video
- mark end of lead in block: keyboard arrow up, keyboard arrow down, mark with [ B]
- block should be marked from start of video to where you want to start video, press keyboard simultaneous [Ctrl][x], lead in is cut.

remove 1st block in video (similar for next blocks you want to remove)
- go to start of next block you wan to cut:  keyboard arrow up, keyboard arrow down, mark with [A ]
- go to end of this block you wan to cut:  keyboard arrow up, keyboard arrow down, mark with [ B]
- only block you wan to cut should be marked, press keyboard simultaneous [Ctrl][x], marked block is cut.

- go to where you want to end your video
- keyboard arrow up, keyboard arrow down, mark with [ B]
- save the video

repeat for as many blocks you want to remove.

important: select cutting points only with keyboard arrow up, keyboard arrow down. Don't use left or right keyboard arrows.

Saving to mp4v2 helped.

Test with avidemux 2.6.18, this could be fixed?
- Release: https://www.fosshub.com/Avidemux.html/
- Nightly: http://www.avidemux.org/nightly/

Saving as MP4 (not v2) still fails with "too short" error.

Could be normal, mp4  not saving and mp4 v2 is saving.
