Dear Apple TV and Home Theater Forum,

Okay part question, part rant.

So, tsMuxeR v1.10.6 is not Snow Leopard compatible, very sad.

I've been messing around with MakeMKV and it's internal cli, but the app is really frustrating. The cli doesn't give enough info about the structure of the disc and I've gotten a few failures on particular titles.

Anyway, IMO tsMuxeR is the best BD mac utility I've found so far and I'm glad SM Labs brought it to the mac platform.

However (and I say this partly in jest), that developers must realize that if they want to develop mac software, they must also bear the burden of supporting impatient and generally high maintenance Mac users!

I mean come on, Snow Leopard's been out for a week already!;)

And, don't even get me started on Plex's incompatibilities.:D

So, has anyone heard of a fix, hack, super-secret beta, or alternative tsMuxer like app (GUI or CLI)?

Signed, Super Needy.

This is killing, anyone have any progress or a good alternative to this? I tried MKVtools but the audio went out of sync and the video lagged.

What does work, however, is running the windows version with cross over. I've already worked with about 10 files muxed at full speed on snow leopard using this method. I have the full version of crossover, but I think you could probably get it to work with the open source version made for google chrome here: http://www.labnol.org/software/download-google-chrome-for-mac-linux/4555/

According to the SmartLabs Forum running an older version of tsmuxer also works. Older versions work with Snow Leopard. There is even link on their forum to download an older version.

Care for a link to the forum?

I've been waiting for a fix and I've toyed with the s/w a bit.
The GUI is whats broken. tsmuxer runs in Mac OS X 10.6.1 in terminal, but you need to know the command line stuff. Or you could use a meta file to remux your videos. Thats a bit hard to do. Now if someone or the s/w devs would just fix the GUI (there's open source code for it here: http://www.smlabs.net/tsMuxer/tsMuxerGUI_1.9.9.src.zip) then we could be all set. Or integrate tsmuxer to mkvtoolnix.
So I downloaded tsMuxeR_1.8.30b.dmg from:
(http://www.videohelp.com/tools/tsMuxeR/old-versions

Version 1.8.30(b):

Bug fixed: ts/m2ts splitting fixedddd
Bug fixed: FINE/COARSE table in clpi file fixed
Bug fixed: track type for DD+ fixed
Bug fixed: Append button in GUI fixed
Bug fixed: Drag&drop for macOsX fixed
Bug fixed: some other minoir bug fixed

Sorry, spoke too soon, 1.8.30b has problems detection audio stream in an mkv

TsMuxer can now be used on Snow Leopard.
Somwone called VoxMac has created a custom GUI that runs without issue on snow Leopard

Take a look at the blog here for dowload link

Yeah, VoxMac really did a nice thing: http://blog.smartlabs.tv/2009/03/new-tsmuxer-1824-is-released.html?showComment=1262119885485#c5326914102944236024

You may also have to delete a few random font files that give tsMuxer errors; read through the comments if you have trouble.

Guess I should have read the "readme" last night when I installed it....;)

First of all, thanks VoxMac for enabling the tsmuxer on Snow Leopard. I am still going through some audio hiccups (missing audio on some tracks) and was wondering if there is any way of converting the audio without the need to use eac3to on the Windows end? Or, is there some setting in tsmuxer that needs to be tweaked other than making sure Audio is no greater than 4.1?

The Beta of iFlicks allows you to remux mkv files and add aac tracks. Its pretty nice and has been well worth the $15 or $20 that it cost me...

If your using Handbrake, the latest nightly build should convert DTS now.

I personally use MakeMVK and just convert in HandBrake from there.....

Hi guys. Just found PS3MediaServer tonight :confused: but I have a question regarding transcoding.

I am going through my DVD collection and turning them into MKV files, encoded with H264 and AC3 audio for the most part. Is there a way to get that streaming right to the PS3 without encoding? I notice on my PS3 that it's being transcoded as it's coming up as an MPEG2 stream.

If I take my MKV files, mux them into m2ts with tsmuxer by hand, they play fine through the PS3. I'd like to get this type of result to keep quality as I encoded it, and not have to mux all my files with tsmuxer beforehand.

Can this be set up?

AFAIK PS3 will not support AC3 or DTS. In order to package your mkv's for streaming to a PS3 you should use an AAC audio format. See http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/video/filetypes.html for details.
