    PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    I have another question regarding the old movies that I have downloaded in an MP4 wrapper. 


    Occasionally, a file when imported into Studio is incomplete, with the end of the movie concerned not included. There is obviously something that Studio does not like about these particular files, although it seems odd that it does not reject the entire file.

     Do I need to re-process these offending files in Avidemux in order for Sudio to accept them or is there some other magic cure?

    You mean that, for example, if the downloaded file is 1 minute long, once imported in Studio, the length can be like 50s ?

    Yes Yann. Most movies run for around 70 minutes but some imports only show 30 minutes imported. If I check in VLC player, the complete movie file has been downloaded.

    Import was done in Link or Copy mode ?

    Hi Yann The downnloader that I use requires the copying of the link.

    Would you provide a step by step of the way you import these files in Studio from scratch ?

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    I use the quick import procedure by accessing the video file and then dragging it to the timeline.

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    So, the file is already downloaded and present in your hard drive. The quick import is always in Link mode. This means that basically, all that Studio is doing is creating a new entry for this file in its database with the path to its location on your PC and some infos about this file.

    It makes no sense that it is shorter in Studio than in Windows explorer.  Huh?

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    Yes Yann, very baffling. I had originally assumed that the download had been incomplete and re-downloaded the files, but when I got precisely the same result from the new files, I checked further by looking at the movie in VLC Media Player and found it to be complete.

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    Is it a public download link you can share or even in private message ?

    I'd like to conduct some tests on my systems.

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    Yes Yann, they are public downloads from a Russian website called ok.ru.

    Here is one of the offending links.  https://ok.ru/video/2618495928834

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    How do you download from this page ?
  •  04-08-2022, 6:38 821567 in reply to 821566

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    Perhaps it's 25fps playing back at 30 but I think you would see other artifacts if it was like that? 


    (Edit: I missed that sometimes it's half the length, never mind)

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    With the downloader that I have (Wonderfox Pro) I simply right click on the playing video and it provides a 'copy link' box for me to paste the URL into the downloader. It works fine for the majority of downloads, with just the odd ones causing the problem.

    Download keeps failing on my PC.

    I relaunched it several times.

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    I can download it onto my desktop and it is after that when I have the problem. I will see if I can find another one for you to try if you don't mind spending the time on it. I am grateful for your help. Give me a bit of time to come up with another as I have some chores to do first.

    Yes, of course. Take your time.

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    How odd. I wonder if there has been some attempt to block downloads from Russian sites in France, given what is going on. I cannot see otherwise why they should work for me and not for you.
  •  04-10-2022, 9:39 821604 in reply to 821602

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    No blocking.

    Download starts, and approximately between 200 and 250 MB on a total of 3036 Mb, it fails.

    I don't understand either.

    Don't you have a personnal Google Drive, One Drive or Dropbox where you could upload one of these files and share a link with us ?

    I have a free Drop Box account. If it is within the permitted file size I could upload it. I will have a look.

    DYTY:

    Scattergood Baines 1941

     https://cloud.mail.ru/public/b4oF/5dFMxThnr

    What is your question, and why would anyone download from that link? 

  •  04-14-2022, 14:37 821695 in reply to 821681

    Re: Re:PS 25 Fails To Import Complete File

    Thanks to the download link provided by DYTY I could get Scattergood Baines 1941.mp4

    Assuming this file is exactly the same as the one you have downloaded from https://ok.ru/video/2618495928834, I confirm that play back is complete with this file in my PS25.

    The only oddity I find with Mediainfo about it is that GOP length is 91. Very unusual and I must add that it makes no sense.
