Failed encoding "Too Short" ?
« on: February 04, 2014, 02:38:22 PM »
I have only recently started using Avidemux to convert a couple MKV files to mp4 containers with mp3 audio. This is so they can be played via usb on a bravia TV. I tried with one file and it worked great. But I'm having trouble with another file where by it stops encoding half way through and just says,
"Too short, video has saved but seems to be incomplete"

It refuses to get past about 45%. This is using exactly the same settings as the file conversion that worked before so I'm not entirely sure what is wrong?

Your input file has errors in its stream (due to reception). You can either cut the small portion giving trouble, or send a sample (with error) on the forum so that Mean can have a look at it.

The answer seems the very reason... but how to detect the wrong area ?
It could be only few frames...

Look at it with Mediainfo and post the data.
Was the original source captured DVB video?
If so was there some recoding or remuxing of that transport stream into MKV?

Try with r9042, a similar issue has been solved with latest release. It does perhaps solves your issue to?

You do have enough free hard disc space (over 3x times the size of video you work with)? If your video is over 4 GB in size, working on fat32 may cause this message to?

Using version 2.6.7, the MP4v2 muxer resolves the error for me. Just don't ask me why...

(is this the main "too short"-thread?)

same situation here:
tried to recode the audio track (video copy) of a MP4/AVC file which was encoded b4
with avidemux/X.264.
It failed with MP4-muxer but I succeeded on MP4v2 muxer.

Several other/different  "too short" problem files (MPEG2 and MPEG4) renderd on Xmedia-Recode
(X.264 too) without problems but got stuck on avidemux.
Same behavier on 2.6.8/r9050 (X64-based) or older releases (32b/86-based)
No visible problems on these files in MPC-HC, SMplayer or VLC.

Any newer solutions?
