Avidemux crashes while editing a very large remuxed MKV
« on: April 19, 2015, 05:21:35 PM »
I had to remuxed a very large MOV video, that I've been photographed (787MB, 11:00 mins, 480p).
Once I try to edit, play or save this video with Avidemux, it crashes.
This is the second time that I've encounters this problem.
Why this is happening?

I should not be happening. On regular basis I work with 9 GB to over 36 GB 720p video (MPEG-TS). (core i7 3770K 32 GB ram + nvidia videocard GT-520, GTX960)
DSLR remuxed MOV? This could be an issue/source of the problem. Perhaps other users have other info on this.

Don't worry about your hardware. The only effect  is a slower encoding.
If your video is with the h.264 (MPEG-4 AVC) codec try Avidemux 2.6.

If you could upload a sample video somewhere that would help

Mediainfo details of the video.
I'm using Avidemux 2.6.8 v2.

Uninstalled the old version and installed the lastest version.
Still crashes + Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library, when openning the remuxed MKV: The same error as with the MOV, which didn't occured with the older version.

Shoot a 10 sec video and see if that triggers the problem
If yes, upload it to mega or similar

Avidemux don't crashes with smaller and shorter videos.
I can't upload sample videos to the forum, as the limit of the files is 128KB.

I just see audio issues.
See if this helps as work around, until a possible solution within avidemux is available.

With audacity http://web.audacityteam.org/ download @ http://web.audacityteam.org/download/windows . Download the program installer and the FFmpeg import/export library. Install both. When installed test these steps:
- Drag & drop your video (MVI_0042.MOV) on to audacity, wait until audio track is extracted.
- in audacity Menu: File -> Export Audio -> Select @ bottom right hand corner of Export Audio pop-up window: MP2 files and click [Save].
- The audio track should now be save with the same name as the video with the extension .mp2 (MVI_0042.mp2).
- close audacity.

With avidemux 2.6.8
- Load the video  (MVI_0042.MOV).
- In Menu: Audio-> Select Track.
- In pop-up window: Audio track Configuration.
-- Leave Track 1 [v] marked.
-- Change [Track 0 from video (PCM, Stereo, 1536 kbps)] to [.... Add Audio Track].
--- In pop-up Select audio file: Location, browse to the new audio file (MVI_0042.mp2), select it and press [OK]. Audio should be in the same location as your video.
--- Select in Output Format the wanted muxer (AVI, MP4v2, MKV, ...).
--- Save the new video. Leave Video en Audio Output in [Copy].
You should now have a workable/editable video.

ps: Developer(s) & users may have other solutions, views to this issue.
