avidemux 2.73
« on: April 07, 2019, 02:05:49 AM »
What I want is that when converting a mkv file of 1280 x 720p it comes out with the same dimensions in 720p otherwise it leaves it in 1280x573 nominally     that when converting it is in the same dimension if 1280x 720p that is the same conversion dimension

It always does unless you add the crop filter.

How can I keep the scale 16: 9

You mean probably the display aspect ratio. Avidemux always assumes square pixels, so without user intervention 1280x720 will be stored as 16:9. For any deeper going deliberations, you should have followed my request and posted a JPG export of a video frame from Avidemux.

By the way, MediaInfo provides purely textual information. No need to post screenshots.

does not support vide vp9 audio opus mkv

I can't follow you, Avidemux supports both VP9 video and Opus audio tracks in MKV, reading as well as writing.

Okay, assuming the source is not stretched or squeezed: You should not modify pixel aspect ratio in the "output 1" tab of the x264 configuration dialog. It should stay at the default value of 1:1. Additionally, you may set "force aspect ratio" in the configuration of the MKV muxer to 16:9.

Most video players ignore the pixel aspect ratio in the video stream and follow only the display aspect ratio stored at the container (MKV, mp4 etc.) level.

This works just fine for me with the limitation that YouTube offers VP9 encoded videos as video-only .webm. The audio track has to be retrieved separately (also a .webm in case of Opus). Avidemux can use neither .webm nor raw Opus stream as external audio track, so both have to be muxed together using e.g. FFmpeg. Avidemux loaded the resulting .mkv file impeccably in my testing, including cutting in copy mode.

So please explain how to get unsupported VP9 video files from YouTube.

Here's an example using a small clip:

243          webm       480x360    360p  307k , vp9, 30fps, video only, 5.47MiB
135          mp4        640x480    480p  530k , avc1.4d401e, 30fps, video only, 8.03MiB

43           webm       640x360    medium , vp8.0, vorbis@128k, 19.03MiB
18           mp4        480x360    medium  398k , avc1.42001E, mp4a.40.2@ 96k (44100Hz), 11.02MiB (best)

The two formats I'll use are f244 (vp9) and f251 (opus).  We can d/l both and, if ffmpeg.exe is also in the PATH or in the current directory, it will then be automatically invoked to mux these two streams into the container specified in the output file extension:

youtube-dl.exe -f244+251  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7Hzd9In7J4  -o "JJ Cale After Midnight_both.mkv"

This is the easiest way, but you could do it separately. A problem arises in that both f244 (VP9 video) and f251 (opus audio), when downloaded are both titled ""JJ Cale After Midnight.webm". So after downloading one of these streams, youtube-dl will baulk when you go to download the 2nd stream as it thinks this has already been downloaded.  The solution is to explicitly name one or both streams:

youtube-dl.exe -f244  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7Hzd9In7J4  -o "JJ Cale After Midnight_video.webm"

youtube-dl.exe -f251 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q7Hzd9In7J4  -o "JJ Cale After Midnight_audio.webm"

ffmpeg -i "JJ Cale After Midnight_video.webm" -i "JJ Cale After Midnight_audio.webm" -c:v copy -c:a copy "JJ Cale After Midnight_combined.mkv"


The MKV file loads fine in ADM.

I had no problems dowmloading this file, converting it to mkv (see below) and then opening it in either ADM versions 2.71 or 2.73 VC++.

I chose the 247 VP9 and 251 Opus streams.   I noticed that even when I specified MKV as the output extention using the "-o filename" option, it was being ignored, So the downloaded file was still a WEBM fie named "D:\youtube_dl\Snow Tha Product - Bilingue (Official Music Video).mkv.webm". I'm used to how FFMEG operates, so I had to look at YOUTUBE-DL more carefully. It was not clearly communicating to FFMPEG that it was to use a MKV container when it merged the two streams, but this can be done by adding the "--merge-output-format mkv" option. So the command I used was:

d:\YouTube_dl>youtube-dl.exe -f247+251 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCK44VKzeS4  --merge-output-format mkv
Code: [Select]
[youtube] jCK44VKzeS4: Downloading webpage

[download] Destination: D:\youtube_dl\Snow Tha Product - Bilingue (Official Music Video).f251.webm

Deleting original file D:\youtube_dl\Snow Tha Product - Bilingue (Official Music Video).f251.webm (pass -k to keep)

Then I checked what was the result of the download:

d:\YouTube_dl>dir  sno*

Volume in drive D is Main Storage


 Directory of d:\YouTube_dl\sno*

20/03/2019  10:30 AM        31,487,620 Snow Tha Product - Bilingue (Official Music Video).mkv
