Cant play some MKV's

Post by kouklo on Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:41 am

Hi all!
1st things 1st I just want to say I have been using K Light for a few years now and I love it.
For the past little while I have been having some issues, some of my MKV's wont play. I have no idea when it exactly started, but I have tried the Standard, Full and Mega versions with the same results.
Like I said its not for all of them, maybe about %40ish of them. VLC and MPC-BE plays everything fine. Im not sure if this means anything or not but I have noticed that the MKV's that play actually use a scene from within the file kind of like a thumbnail, whereas the ones that dont play just use a generic MPC-HC picture. (the one that says 3 2 1 on it.)
I forgot to add im on a Win 7 computer.

any help would be amazing! thanks!

This would probably help as well.

Please cut a 30 MB sample with DGSplit and upload it for me.

The developers should be able to fix the problem once they have a sample.

No problem, it will be the 1st thing I do when I get home. Hopefully it's not too hard to use. Should I use the same video I used for the mediainfo or use another random one that doesn't work? Does it even matter?

Any of the problem files would be fine. The cutting tool is easy to use.

ok i did it, BUT something strange happened. i can play the 30MB file i made. it doesn't make any sense how I can play the small file but not the original. From what I have read about this DGSplit program its not supposed to alter the file in any way. I hope you guys can help me out with this.

Correct. DGSplit will just cut a sample using the exact data from the original file. It literally just makes a cut.

I am not sure what kind of strange thing is happening.

Test these things:
1) What happens if you make a copy of the file and play the copy?
2) What happens if you move it to another folder?
3) What happens if you rename it from .mkv to .xyz (and play it by dragging it onto an open MPC-HC)?

I tried everything you said, still nothing. I also tried something of my own. Have you ever heard of mkvmerge GUI? I use it from time to time to get rid of subtitles or audio streams i dont want. I loaded one of the non-palying movies in to it BUT i didnt touch a single setting, I just hit the start muxing button. when it was done I could play the new MKV.

So i tried it on another movie just to make sure im not crazy, same thing. I figured you might want to see the mediainfo info for it.
the 1st one is the original and the 2ed one is is the same MKV that has been through mkvmerge GUI untouched.

Re: Cant play some MKV's

The 'broken' file was modified by Media Center Master. I am not sure why the sample that you cut doesn't have the same problems, but perhaps you can intentionally break the sample. Add the small file to your movie library and let Media Center Master update the metadata of the file. Hopefully that damages it. If it does re-upload that file for me.

In case you don't use Media Center Master yourself, and this is the original file that you downloaded somewhere, could you link to the torrent that you use?

It seems to be a know bug in MCM.
https://forums.plex.tv/index.php/topic/126495-broken-movies/
https://code.google.com/p/mediacentermaster/issues/detail?id=1467

There is probably an option to disable writing metadata to the files.

you good sir are a genius!!! LOL.
it never "clicked" before, but now that im looking at my collection it seems to be only movies that i downloaded over 6 months to a year ago.
do you know of any way to fix all of them without going one by one in mkvmerge GUI?

Create a .bat file with the following content:
Code:
C:\mkvtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe -o "%1_fixed.mkv" "%1"
move /Y "%1_fixed.mkv" "%1"
Now just drag&drop a broken file onto this .bat file and it will be processed. If successful it will delete the input and rename the output back to the original filename.

Or even more automatic...

Put all broken files in a folder. For example c:\brokenvideos

Another .bat file
Code:
for %%F in (c:\brokenvideos\*.mkv) do (
C:\mkvtoolnix\mkvmerge.exe -o "%%~dpnF_fixed.mkv" "%%~dpnF.mkv"
move /Y "%%~dpnF_fixed.mkv" "%%~dpnF.mkv"
)
Then just double click the .bat file and it will process all files in that folder.
