    Have you experienced sync issues with this approach?

    No, the lossless encode has complete information for every single frames so as long as you join the lossless stuff back before doing the final encode, it should be perfectly synced since the number of frames won't change which is what would desync the audio(but even with a lossy encode, it shouldn't cause sync issue in MeguIVit since it loads the video with a reliable filter that won't change the amount of frames, unlike encoding softwares that load them with directshow). The only thing that might be problematic is the deinterlacing quality at the trim points since qtgmc uses a few frames ahead to do its interpolation. I always encode 50 extra frame(before and after) and cut those out when I join them back. Might not be really noticeable but I prefer not to take chances personally.

    The only thing that would cause sync issues is if you mess up your trims and duplicate or omit some section of the video.

    Having problems starting the program. Running MeguIVit.exe results in a loading circle then nothing. Running megui.exe directly gives this error message. How should I troubleshoot this further? Folder has been excluded from antivirus.

    You could try running it from a shorter path name, although I don't think you're hitting the limit there but it's hard to tell.

    Could be a live protection from your antivirus blocking the execution of the virtual stuff, you could try disabling it completely(or looking for a live feature to add an exception/temporarily disable) to see if that fixes it.

    I'm assuming you're using windows 10 from the look of that error box style and I'm not sure if someone else tested it on it so could be the issue. It was released 4-5 months before I made the fix so it should support it but maybe not.
    Edit: Read back a bit and someone did make it work on win 10 so unless an update screwed it up, that shouldn't be the issue.

    Disabled Defender real-time protection, run from shorter path name => no dice

    Windows 10 64 v1803. Would be great if anyone else could corroborate whether it works or doesn't work on their system.

    Tried different megui builds: Megui 2836-32 from April runs.

    Tried older systems: beta 4 2015-12-02 runs on a fresh 8.1 install.

    What could be going on with Windows 10 v1803? I guess dual booting is a workaround for now.

    Did you ever figure out the IV tweaks? After reading through the thread I am also thinking of biting the bullet and scripting commands out like SamKook.

    Has anyone been able to get this to run in Win10 v1803? I'd rather not dual boot to 8.1 just to encode DVDs or Blu-rays.

    Casshern2 Senior Member...I think

    Instead of dual boot, can you run a VM?

    It's nothing Handbrake can't do... I use that for all encoding I require.

    The whole point of this is to make it easy to get the best quality possible. The deinterlacing methods included with handbrake are all lower quality than tgmc(the deinterlacer used by MeguIV)/qtmgc(the deinterlacer used by MeguIVit).

    While it is possible to use qtgmc with handbrake, it's far from simple and if you're good enough to do it, you don't really need handbrake in the first place, might as well use the command line encoder directly.

    I might look into repacking it with a newer version of the software to see if that fixes the issues with it not working in up-to-date win10 but that's not gonna be now, got too much to deal with atm.

    Just confirming that Sam's repackaging from 12/2015 won't run on Win10 x64 v1803. Since I only tried this application a single time at very different moments throughtout the years, I have never ever got it to run in any of my systems. It seems I am always too late; bummer!
