    Is it possible to play an .avi that is larger than 10 minutes? Also, it's not possible to convert a 2D video into 3D, is it? Thanks in advance for any help.

    Also which is the best video converter?

    I personally feel the one in my signature is better.

    BTW, you can't play videos over 10 minutes, but my converter will automatically split longer videos into 10 minute sections so they can be played (most converters do this I think). And there are tools to convert 2D videos to 3D, but I cannot vouch for their success as I have never used one. I cannot imagine them being very good to be honest.

    It's not possible to convert blue and red 3d videos, right?

    Again, there is software to convert red/blue to side-by-side (as with 2D->3D), but you will definitely lose some colour (lack of green prevents full colour, plus the parts that are only in one camera angle will miss either red or blue as well), may even only be possible to black and white. And again, I'm not sure how good the conversion would be.

    But as with 2D->3D, you will have to rely on separate software, and you'll probably have to look for it yourself as I don't know any of this software off hand I'm afraid.

    Thanks SifJar, you've been very helpful, and the converter is great.

    Converter isn't all my work, Below_Zero and amzg helped a lot too, particularly in the later versions.

    I heard Zero!
    Anyway, why are the videos I convert to 3D such a large file size? Like I get a 1.4GB file.

    Because you are using high quality. Reduce the quality, reduce the file size.

    I presume, as the 3DS doesn't support subtitles, you'd have to make them a part of the actual video (thus unable to disable them). There may be tools out there to do this? :unsure:

    yeah, the subtitles wasn't a seperate file, it seems intergrated with the .mkv, but clearly not intergrated enough to exist during the conversion,

    But you can still disable it right? That means it is not part of the actual video (the stuff you're seeing on screen).

    MeGUI can do it, among other things.

    If I remember correctly, you cant hardsub with an MKV file. You would have to switch it to something like an MP4.


    Think of MKV as a box. It takes the video and subtitles and places them in the box(MKV), but it does not merge them. This is called SoftSubbing (in the anime community). You need to find a container that can be hardsubbed (Merges subtitles with video). Like I said, MP4 works pretty well.

    so is there an easy way for me to make them hard subs without having to download a different file?

    You will need some sort of encoding program, but you have two routes:

    Simple:
    If you have the script(subs) and the video file, then you can get a simple program that will merge the two.

    Difficult:
    If you dont have a seperate script then you will have to encode the MKV video to another format.

    Take this with a grain of salt though. My knowledge of encoding is little.

    It's solely a .mkv file, I was thinking going the route of converting it into another format that keeps the subs then converting it to 3ds format. So difficult road time, here we go?
