mpeg2 mkv to x264 mp4 always heavy artifacts
#11
Somehow, when I switch Config>containers>FFmpeg instead of MP4Box, everything is excellent! Everything plays nicely, fluent, deinterlaced, no artifacts. Are there any downsides using ffmpeg instead of MP4BOX?

Some programs have problems with mp4box others with ffmpeg muxes mp4/mov files.
Since most programs handle mp4box better, Hybrid by default uses mp4box.

I attached the filter settings.
Not sure whether the original was PAL or NTSC, so I used sRestore to go for NTSC instead of PAL.
Also note that there are probably way better filtering settings, but this is what I would start with. Smile

Cu Selur, thank you very much for your hard work! I have managed to solve the artifacting issue! It was problem in my computer, MPC-HC told me I was missing some codecs, I was not using MPC-HC before, I was using VLC which didn't told me anything. I was blaming the program and it was my PC.
So the last problem I have, Hybrid doesn't load audio tracks when ripping DVDs. It is not a major issue as I can rip DVDs with makemkv and than load it into Hybrid.
I have also installed Hybrid to dad's PC and there also does not load audio track.
If you would like to take a look on this issue, I have uploaded whole DVD image:
https://www.uschovna.cz/en/zasilka/HNBZGU2RXG35I8VA-A7I
I have also one question bothering me, I would like to know, which codec would you prefer, if you would have to choose between VP9 or h264.

Anyway, thank you very much for spending time and answering my noob questions. Hybrid is now my new primary encoding software.

Will look at the dvd later.
I would always use H.264 over VP9.

Also Selur why, when I load file into Hybrid, Pixel aspect ratio is not 1X1 but sometimes 2000x1000 or 16x15

   

Hybrid tells me default is 1:1 so why it always resets ? In my MKV file, it is 16x15 when I leave it and reencode it, the final video is 5:4 and not original 4:3.
I was trying to find answers on internet but couldn't find any.

Input pixel aspect ratio, shows the pixel aspect ration of the source that was imported.
This aspect ration is read from the headers of the file using media info.

Quote:when I leave it and reencode it, the final video is 5:4 and not original 4:3.
You are mixing Pixel Aspect Ratio with Display Aspect Ratio.
-> if you don't know the difference you should read up on that.
[INFO] About pixel aspect ratios,.. + Wikis in you language about pixel aspect ratio etc.
When feeding Hybrid with anamorphic content the pixel aspect ratio is not 1:1 (true for most DVD from the last 10+ years)

If you want square pixel (1:1) output, enable 'Convert output to PAR' and set it to 'Square Pixel (1:1)', this way Hybrid will enable resizing to archive 1:1 PAR while maintaining not causing stretched or squeezed heads. Smile

Okay, I loaded the the DVD into Hybrid and I can confirm that Hybrid ignores the audio since mplayer reports:
Quote:ds_fill_buffer: EOF reached (stream: audio)
MPEG: No audio stream found -> no sound.
I'll try to find a workaround for this.

Think I found a workaround.

Thank you very much Cu Selur, this is all I needed to know.

edit: I confirm DVD audio extraction is working
