Audio Description Only In MP4 Conversion ?

Dec 31, 2012 at 6:28 PM

I use MCEBuddy to automatically convert .WTV recordings to .MP4 files.  I've been using 1.x for 18 months now without a problem.  I just got a new HD tuner and whilst installing it,  updated MCEBuddy to 2.x in the process.

MCEBuddy 2.x is converting the HD video from .WTV to .MP4 without a problem.  However,  it's losing the audio and leaving me with just an audio description track.  The program I'm trying it with has been recorded in the UK from the BBC HD channel.  The .WTV file plays back just fine.

I found the Audio Language setting in the Convert to MP4 options and set that to 'English' (eng) but I'm still getting the audio description track only.

The audio on non-HD videos is converting fine.

Can anyone tell me how to get MCEBuddy to process the normal audio rather than the audio description track when converting HD videos ?

Kind regards,
Paul

1. Paul, you'll need to post the conversion log for the video is question.

2. When the file is in the queue, right Click and Select Media Info, see what Audio languages are present. You need to remember, the languages codes are set by the broadcaster and it's not always accurate. Just because the audio is english, does not necessarily mean the broadcast has tagged it as ENG. IT could be QAA or <Default>. Again, Media Info will give you detials on the audio tracks, then you can select the "correct" audio track in teh MP4 Conversion Options page. (you can use the 3 letter code displayed on the Media Info page as a shortcut in the Conversion Options page).

You can also try setting it to <Default>. This will allow MCEBuddy to use the Audio language with the highest number of audio channels, usually that's the main audio track.

Thank-you for your help.  The top part of the log is below which seems to be where the audio details are buried.

From using Media Info I can see the WTV file has two audio tracks - 1 and 2.  Both are coded to the same language - English (eng) - and have 2 channels so I guess MCEBuddy doesn't know which to choose and grabs the first one.  From trying to encode it using Handbrake,  it seems as though 1 is audio description and 2 is the normal audio.  This is the first HD program I've recorded and so I don't know yet if this is typical in the UK.

Kind regards,
Paul

I will n eed the complete log file, you'll need to upload it ot hte MCEBUddy server or open a Issue and attach the log file to it.

If you can upload the original file to the MCEBuddy server that would be great.

Jan 8, 2013 at 7:02 PM

Apologies - I couldn't see how to attach files here and failed to read the sticky post on getting help.  The log file (Ripper Street_BBC One HD_2012_12_30_20_58_00.wtv-Convert to MP4-2013-01-07T20-30-00.4481935+00-00) has just been uploaded to the FTP site.  Again,  it's only picked up the audio description channel.

Thanks for your help.

I see the issue, MCEBuddy looks for an audio stream that matches the language selected and teh looks for a track with the MOST number of audio channels. In your case both audio tracks are eng and both have 2 channels hence MCEBuddy takes the 1st track which happens to be the descriptive track.

I need to provide a way to be able to select the audio track number in MCEBuddy, will fix it in the next release 2.3.12 however I need your original file to test it, can you upload it to the MCEBuddy server.

I've put a patch - but cannot release it before testing against the original file, you can upload it into a folder and let me konw once it' done.

sorry to jump in here, but isnt there a way to include ALL audio tracks in the resulting mp4 files ?

All Media Center software ( eg. PLEX, VLC, XBMC etc ) have a way for user to pick and choose which audio track to play...
I'm just wondering why not encode both, especially if  user is doing everything automatically, they may not notice that wrong audio track is embedded and MCEBuddy might delete original file....

with 2.3.12 there will be a way.

 

If you select <Default> as the Audio Language AND change the profile to include "-map 0:a -map 0:v" in the ffmpeg-video section for the ffmpeg profile and it will copy/convert all audio tracks.

This will not work with handbrake and mencoder, since they do not support multi audio track conversion/copying.

For e.g. in 2.3.12, most profile will come enabled with multiple audio tracks in output if <Default> is selected in Conversion Options as the Audio Language.

However this will work with only FFMPEG based profile, so if you want MP4 with multiple Audio Tracks change the order to ffmpeg first in the MP4 profile.

Thanks.  I uploaded the file overnight.  Windows helpfully re-booted automatically to process updates but I think that was after the file uploaded.

Working like a charm in 2.3.12 You can download it from the EARLY ACCESS PROGRAM.

 

If you use a Mencoder or handbrake based profile it will select the "correct" audio track. If you use a FFMPEG profile it will keep ALL audio tracks.
