@jcsston : Is there any chance to make use of DaveEL's code for a MKV
encoding tool which will output native MPEG4 MKV files ? avs2matroska
had XviD statically linked in the code, so i guess this will be the
biggest obstacle, as this way we cant distribute binaries safely, and
this is a no-go right now, given the publicity the matroska project has
We needed to find a way to use xvid-core.dll dynamically from this tool,
and thats maybe making most of DaveEL's existing code unsuable, and its
better to start all over ? In the first alpha versions of avs2matroska i
had to load the XviD VCM codec from Virtualdub to make the settings, and
so i could make only one pass after the other. But for some hard core
matroska users this is certainly acceptable, if they get the long
awaited native files that way.
@spyder : Is MILK usable for this already ?
Thanks for caring guys. With Mosu being busy currently, so he cant work
on the native transmuxer in mkvmerge, i guess it could be well worth it
to have a look in this. Furthermore, we will release the first alpha of
DVDto MKV this week, and this program could 100% replace VirtualdubMod
in it, and even create native files !!
