OS X :: How To Split A Mkv Video File?

What I have been trying to do is transfer a .mkv video file which is 4.37 GB in size from a hard drive which is format NAT32 to one that is FAT32. So what I am wanting to do is split the video file in 2 so that I can transfer it to the FAT32 because I dont mind watching 1 part then the other.

So is there any application out there which will allow me to do this?

Mac QuickTime :: Mkv Not Playing On Even With Perian - How To Open Default Mkv Files
Downloaded .mkv files do not open on QuickTime although Perian is installed.

I thought Perian is supposed to work with .mkv.

Clicking on the file results in opening Miro but not QuickTime.

Is there any way to open/play .mkv's on QuickTime by default?

Software :: Using Airtunes (airport Express) And Video (MKV) Files?
I'm quite happy with all the apple products. Yesterday I bought the airport, for the reason to play video's (MKV format) visualy on my MBP, while i send the sound thrue airport express (airport) to my remote speakers.

I feel I'm "tricked", because this is the reason why i bought the airtunes. Only to find out it -like it actually advertises- really only plays sound thrue itunes. I do not want to trick my files to have itunes be able to play the MKV. (Besides, even if they play, the sounds stays on the laptop, whether i click sounds to the airtunes or not..).

Is there a simple -FREE- way to do this? I feel scammed for using airfoil, since they charge money for this option

As much as I hoped i wouldn't be alone with this questions, i can find little info about this. I've searched the forum and couldnt find it, nor is there a clear answer thrue google)

MacBook Pro :: Extracting Subtitle Files From MKV File?
I'm trying to rip my blu-ray library with MakeMKV and convert it with Handbrake (which is the best option I've come across for a mac user like myself) but when it comes to extracting .srt files from the resulting .mkv file I come to a brick wall. When I've thought I successfully extracted them using MKVTools (the only way I'm aware of on a mac) I can't find them anywhere on my computer, thus I can't utilize the "add external .srt" option in Handbrake.

Mac QuickTime :: MKV - Watching Multiple Video Tracks Simultaneously
I have a load of Matroska files which contain a few (about 5) short video clips and an audio track. The video clips in each file are of the same event from different angles, so I want to watch all clips simultaneously. I have installed Perian and while the files open, I can only see one track, and I don't hear any audio. (MKVinfo tells me there are definitely multiple tracks.) Is it possible to use Perian/QuickTime to watch all video tracks simultaneously? I've tried VLC, and while this also opens the files (and shows all tracks), it invariably crashes soon after opening.

Mac QuickTime :: Playing .mkv Files Video Works Fine - Sound Distorted
What I'm trying to do is open some .mkv files in Quicktime 7 so that I can export it as an mp4 with AAC audio (instead of AC3, 5.1). The audio during playback ends up sounding like a helicopter or what you'd hear if you stuck a piece of sandpaper in a box fan. When I play the files in VLC the audio is as it should be. I'm at a loss as to what the problem could be. I have version 1.2.1 of Perian installed.

MacBook Pro :: VLC Lagging When Playing X264 1080p Mkv File Without Installed A Battery?
I'm here to share this experience if you have been experiencing lagging/blocking on VLC x264 1080p playback on Macbook Pro 15' AND you have detached your battery for routine operation. You better to attach your battery back. Of course, it would dying your battery more rapidly while using it in a fully-charged status with a Power Adapter connected. But it is the only way to get smoothly your playback on x264 1080p movie file.

Software :: Any Way To Split AVI File?
I have an AVI file that is just a tad too big to be burned onto a single-layer DVD, even at the "most efficient" setting (forgot the exact wording) of iDVD. I would like to do one of two things: Lower the quality just a bit (I'm just a bit over the 4.7GB limit), or split the AVI I'm trying to put on a DVD in two and end up with two DVDs. I just don't want to spend the money on DL DVDs for this!

I have googled "split AVI" and tried Bananasplitter. Perhaps, due to its age, it failed to work. Anyone have any suggestions on accomplishing this. Especially lowering the quality a bit more on iDVD so that it'll fit on one DVD? I would love to get rid of that "Revolution Main" theme and simply have the AVI play immediately upon disc insertion. Perhaps that alone would allow the movie to fit on one single-layer DVD.

OS X Leopard :: Compress And Split File Into Several Parts
There's this nifty free application on windows called 7-zip that can compress a file and split the file into several parts. I've been searching for a very long time for something like that for mac. The closest I've seen is simplyrar, but it was buggy as it did not allow me to define the file sizes. I've been wanting to do this because I have a fat32 drive (simply for mac/windows compatibility) and being fat32 the maximum file size is 4 GB. Thus I wanted to split a larger file so that I can store it on the external drive. Are there any other free alternatives for mac?

Final Cut Pro :: Locked Split-screen Between Two Different Video Tracks?
I'm creating two time-lapse videos and then I'm planning to to play them side-by-side in one sequence.The way I was planning to do this was to scoot one video track over using the "center" tool in the motion panel, and then crop it on its right-hand edge to reveal the other video track beneath.

The problem with doing this however is that, as the camera gets bumped or moved slightly as the months go on, and I then have to cut and reposition the "center" location for the clip, I have to then adjust the amount of crop on that video clip since I've moved its position. This means the center split-screen location keeps changing as I move the video around.

Is there a way where I can just lock the split screen smack in the middle of the frame as I tinker with each side of the frame (video track) independently? I tried adding a split-screen transition in the very beginning to the top track, but I can't make cuts on a transition to then adjust the motion attributes.

Any ideas on how to simplify this process would really be appreciated. Originally, I thought there was no easier way to do this, but I was so blown away by all the answers to my motion effects question today (and all the things I never knew about FCP) that I thought it wouldn't hurt to see if someone out there had one more ace up their sleeve. If not, I'll assume this is one of those things that can't be simplified anymore than what I'm doing.

Xserve :: Best To Split File Serving Onto One Disk, And Use Another For Client Profiles / Email / Calenders?
I am currently working in a medium sized architecture practice. We are looking at upgrading our server, currently an old ethernet disk. We run around 16 imac's and 2 printers (large and small format) on our network and I am not sure whether an xserve is overkill for an office this size. We would be looking to use the server for email for all staff, a small website (100mb max) and storage of all office files (probably 500mb - 1TB) with room for expansion.

If Xserve is appropriate in this case, what is also the best backup solution - a RAID system or time machine using external disks, or other? Is it also best to split file serving onto one disk, and use another for client profiles / email / calenders etc?

Final Cut / DVD Studio :: Compressor Output Corrupted - Split Video In 4 Parts
I am trying to compress 30 minute video made in FCP. I have configured Qmaster cluster. Cluster controller is G5, and the node is mac mini with intel processor. The output is black screen with green lines appearing randomly on every frame. Compressor setting is mpeg-2-vbr and dolby. FCP output is 1920x1080, and compressor output is 720x480. My question is could be because of mixing G5 and intel? Compressor splits video in 4 parts. Some done on G5 and some on mac mini, and merged afterward.

Final Cut Pro :: Getting A Rendering Error "No Video In File" And Now Corrupted Video File?
I've been working with some video footage in Final Cut that I recorded directly to my hdd using adobe Onlocation. I used the chroma key filter on it and then added an animation clip from After Effects, in the form of a .mov file to my timeline. When trying to render my timeline I get the "no video in file error." I used the render manager and trashed all the render files, then I manually searched my hdd and trashed any other render files I could find. Still getting the same error message. Gave up and decided to start from scratch except that now my original video file that I recorded with Onlocation is corrupted and I can't preview it in Quicktime nor play it in Onlocation. It also imports into final cut as a white screen.
This is the only copy of the file I have (I know, stupid me right?)

Mac Mini :: New Mac Mini - Choppy Video Playback In VLC For Mkv Or Avi Files
Just bought the new mac mini with HDMI out - 2.66Ghz, 8 Gb RAM, 500 Gb HDD

A lot of mkv or avi files I playback appear pretty choppy in VLC - my primary app for watching movies and tv shows.

I have a Drobo with two 2 TB SATA drives where I store all my stuff and which is connected to my mini via firewire 800.

I've tried playing the same video back from both the Drobo and from the internal hard drive, to see if the choppiness was on account of the external drive or not. No difference really. A choppy video remains choppy from either place.

It's pretty strange because some 1080p videos play just fine, with no choppiness whatsoever, while other 720p videos or even standard definition divx files are still choppy.

OS X :: Playing Mkv Files On Realplayer?
I notice that MKV files are getting more and more popular around us.

But it looks that these files are not supported very well on MAC.

Maybe it's because many MKV files use ReadVideo9 as video codec, which is not popular in MAC world.

As far as I know, the only software to decode Real Media File is RealPlayer, and RealPlayer do not support MKV files. So ...!!
