A Note About Remuxing Audio with Framerate Change
#1
This may be common knowledge to most, but I figured it might be worth noting. The last two syncs I did both had 24 FPS video sources while the audio was from a 23.976. Since preservation is the name of our game I didn't want to alter the audio, so I chose to change the video framerate instead. This can be easily done with MKVToolnix when you remux with the video by setting Default Duration/FPS to 24000/1001.

Here's the thing though - that option is only setting the MKV container parameter, not the framerate actually embedded in the video stream. For most PC players that might actually be enough, but I ran into the problem where my main player was ignoring it and using the one in the stream. Luckily, we can also alter that without re-encoding by checking the box labeled Fix bitstream Timing info. With these two set, you should be good to go on any player Smile

I appreciate this guide. I use MKVToolnix a lot, especially lately and it is helpful info. Thanks!

Note: it can be done easily also on TSmuxeR, if you ever need the file to be muxed into a .ts or .m2ts - for Blu-ray.
Sadly my projects are lost due to an HDD crash... Sad

The better way to change the video framerate is in the element stream rather than the container. One easy way to do this is with My MP4 Box gui - take your video stream, and set the fps and mux to .mp4. Then take the resulting .mp4 and re-mux the video file into your mkv container.

I thought -slowdown is only for 25fps, pal speeddown. Shouldn't it be -24.000 -changeTo23.976?.

Bronan, if you want to keep all the other tracks from the 4k bluray of the The Fog, I assume all of them need slowing down as well including sup and also don't the chapters need manuallly re-timing?.

-slowdown will output 23,976fps regardless of original frame-rate

This is awesome. I knew I can set it but I didn't know about the "fix bitsream timing info". Very useful!

Isn't that the reason why he mentions that "fix bitstream timing info" checkbox? Or is that something different again?

Yea, that's what I was going to say, it's the hidden fix bitstream timing info that is most important. I highlighted it up above so you can't miss it now Smile
