This project contains two separate interfaces for Windows and Mac OS to
download. They essentially do the same thing.
Select a source folder with some video clips (or several files in the
Mac version). The program will change the container to the selected
output without reencoding. For Windows, ffmpeg needs to be installed on
your system, it is included in the Mac download.
For a short video demonstration of the Mac version, go to:
Windows version does not work it does the same as marcolopes states. I ended up writing a bat file that does the same. @echo off mkdir converting for %%f in (*.mkv) do ffmpeg.exe -i "%%~nf.mkv" -c:v copy -c:a copy "converting\%%~nf.mp4" move converting\* rmdir \q converting cls set /p userinp=Delete originals?(y/n) set userinp=%userinp:~0,1% if "%userinp%"=="y" goto delete goto end :delete del *.mkv :end
Windows interface does not work. FFmpeg folder is well defined, Video folder also, input files are loaded, then, it just quits when doing OK...
Unfortunately, I failed using video container switcher to convert a "modern video" from the container "transport stream" (.ts) to MP4 (.mp4) ... This video is UHD HDR HEVC type and I would have to convert it to MP4 to be correctly played by my TV set. Samples can be found at demo-uhd3d.com site into HDR UHD Videos category. It seems that this application requires an update to support this type of files that will quickly become widespread
Perfect. I use it on OSX to switch from mp4 to mkv. Works like a breeze. The end of useless re-encodings.
Hi there, I can't get the converted files to play on a ps3. Once converted from MKV they are saved as .mkv.mp4. Media info shows the files are mp4 but the ps3 says the files are unsupported, for that matter I can't play them on a USB capable TV either, for the same reason. Any thoughts on what I maybe doing wrong. I have ffmpeg installed and VCS is referenced to it and sees it as I get a cmd window showing the conversion.
