      Forum stability   03/21/2018

      There was an unintended side effect as a result of the recent server maintenance carried out to increase its performance and update its SSL/TLS security layer. Immediately following the maintenance, some people started to experience intermittent periods of lag and even some experiencing "504 Gateway Timeout" errors.   I had to leave what was there in place for the time being so I could figure out where the issue was. I'm happy to say that I THINK I figured it out and made the necessary adjustments to the backend process manager. Most, if not all of these issues, should have cleared up as of late today. However, if you still happen to notice highly abnormal lag/dropouts/timeout errors anywhere on the forum, please report it to me in PM with the URL you were trying to visit when the problem occurred. I can't guarantee immediate responses, but rest assured that every report you send will be investigated.   You have my sincerest apologies for this bit of a rough ride post-maintenance. This is a fairly new backend configuration we're using that, while thorough tested, can be somewhat trickier to tune properly, and often times adjustments have to be made to it. It's pretty much a balancing game, just gotta find which settings work best overall...which I HOPE I've found finally.

  1. I'd propose starting with something like: #1 VideoSlimmer.py --mkvmerge <path> --media <path> --lang jpn --keep-all-subtitles If you already know which track the singsong subtitle that you don't want is, do: #2 with a .bat in the appropriate folder: for %%a in ("*.mkv") do mkvpropedit.exe "%%a" --edit track:<no> --set codec-id=DISABLED to hack-disable a subtitle, though it doesn't always work. mkvpropedit doesn't edit the entire file, just the mkv parameters so operations don't redo the whole file and are very fast. Note that instead of --edit track:<no> you can use --edit track:s<no>, e.g. --edit track:s2 would be the 2nd subtitle track. You can do something like: --edit track:s1 --set flag-default=0 --edit track:s2 --set flag-default=1 You can guess what that does. You could also fake-change the audio language to 'eng' (--set language=eng), run VideoSlimmer again to remove non-English subs (VideoSlimmer leaves unidentified subs in place), then change the audio back to 'jpn.' Or just modify the python script a little. All of the above with mkvpropedit. Sorry for rambling, got to split.
  2. I dropped ffmpeg.exe in the same directory and used the following in command prompt ffmpeg.exe -i "dawson part 1.mkv" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -ss 00:00:00 -t 00:00:16.18 cut_01.mkv ffmpeg.exe -i "dawson part 2.mkv" -vcodec copy -acodec copy -ss 00:00:16.24 cut_02.mkv Then with MKVtoolnix I added cut_01.mkv, clicked it, appended cut_02.mkv and outputted a file. I'm not sure if the result is what you intended: https://1fichier.com/?db0k6ogexc
  3. Whoops, skimmed and misread, so ignore this as to good advice. I'll just point out https://github.com/binhex/videoslimmer is a fast command-line script to remove unwanted audio/subtitle languages by keeping a single language, but whether it works or can be modified for potatows' purposes depends on the precise MKV language tags used for the tracks. Note that it doesn't retain the original files so keep that in mind if you ever find it useful.
