Ping Pong The Animation – 09

I re-installed my desktop last week and lost the passwords to a few things. DDL link as soon as I figure out the pass to that one. Also:

<~Quattro> Ping Pong will be delayed next week.
<~Quattro> and it’ll be all my fault
<~Quattro> well, maybe no later than it was this week
<~Quattro> but i’ll be away thursday to sunday night

    Thank you so much!

  2. Anon says:

    How come you had to reinstall your OS? Also, whynot use a password manager like Keepass?
    Either way, thanks for the episode, appreciate it.

  3. W!nd says:

    Is it just me, or this torrent doesnt have subs in it :s?

  4. Anonymous says:

    There’s no subs in the file. That’s it I’m going with the horriblesubs this week. I just can’t bear to wait any longer.

  5. Anon says:

    Anonymous & W!nd: Are you sure? It worked fine when I watched it, could be your player.

  6. betr10u says:

    The CRC matches but there still are no subs…

  7. W!nd says:

    Using mpc-hc, Had no such problem with anything so far. The file doesnt start on its own anyway, I have to skip ahead few secs in order to watch something, but for me there are no subs in this it. I already watched horrible this week so whatever, hopefully i can fix it soon, as I see not everyone is affected with this problem.

    • Quattro says:

      I’m having zero problems whatsoever.

      What’s your playback set up?

      • W!nd says:

        I updated madVR, Halli’s, LAV filers. Still doesnt work, unfortunately.

        • Quattro says:

          That doesn’t really answer the question. And none of those are your subtitle renderer.

          • W!nd says:

            I use MPC-HC with madVR. Just the default sub renderer from media player I guess. If that’s what this is about.

            Playback from options and OSD.

          • Quattro says:

            MPC-HC is the player. madVR is the video renderer. What subtitle renderer do you use? Because there really isn’t anything wrong with the file. It’s possible the typesets in the script are causing it to lag if you’ve got an older machine. Check the mediainfo or extract the subs.

          • anon42 says:

            MPC-HC has a built in subtitle renderer, which is probably how W!nd has it setup. I personally have MPC-HC setup to use its internal subtitle renderer and an unable to view the subs on your release (which I only had this exact issue with another release from another group that released a bad release).

          • Quattro says:

            First, you should never use the internal renderer. It’s awful. Go get xy-vsfilter. It even comes standard with CCCP and most codec packs. And the most likely cause is that it can’t handle the typesets or something, because not a single person on staff so far has had any problem playing it.

          • anon42 says:

            if I extract the subs from your release, it plays with the subs but without the font. So it’s not an issue with the subtitles. Most likely is due to an issue with how it was encoded or the fonts.

            And IMHO codec packs are bloated and completely unnecessary.

          • Quattro says:

            The encoding is completely unrelated to subtitle playback. You’re probably referring to muxing.

            And I meant that even codec packs come with a better subtitle renderer than the ISR. If you know what you’re doing, you can do better than a codec pack, but cccp is still worth using. Only shitty codec packs are bloated anyway. Since you were still using the ISR, I’d recommend installing cccp.

          • anon42 says:

            No I mean the encoding, because as W!nd already stated the video doesn’t start on its own (it gets stuck on the first frame) and I’ve already demuxed & remuxed your release with the issue persisting.

            I do know what I’m doing and the internal renderer in MPC-HC is fine (which BTW, the internal renderer is an updated version of VSFilterMod).

          • Quattro says:

            Right, that’d be the muxing, not the encode. The encode itself is also fine. If the mux was somehow corrupted, then you wouldn’t be able to remux and fix it though. And either way, heavy typesets can cause it to lag while loading.

            MPC-HC’s ISR is not fine either. It very poorly handles modern fansubs. Something like xy-VSFilter is far better. There was a good comparison before, but the group’s site seems to be gone. Go and read up a bit here instead: https://code.google.com/p/xy-vsfilter/ or just ask literally anyone invloved in fansubbing.

          • W!nd says:

            Like anon42 said, I was using internal sub renderer, unfortunately installing xy-VSfiler didnt solve the problem. The video still doesnt start on its own (need to skip few frames ahead), when I can extract the subs from the file, but when I’m playing the video there are no subs to pick from.

          • Quattro says:

            Well, it’s a good thing to use xy-vsfilter anyway. It doesn’t sound like a subtitle or subtitle renderer problem at this point anymore. I’m at a loss.

            Either way, remuxing with the original encode for the batch should solve whatever weird muxing problem occurred, if that’s what it is.

  8. Wonko says:

    See, my problem is that there is literally no subtitle file in the .mkv envelope. CRC is as expected, still no subs. http://i.imgur.com/wPBC2jk.jpg

    Also, it’s been playing for a full minute and a half now with no audio or video; just a black screen. skipping ahead to anywhere else in the file gives me picture and sound, but linear play yields nothing.

    • Quattro says:

      That’s very weird, because every metric I have to check such a thing tells me there is a subtitle file. Mediainfo shows it. I can demux it. I can remux it. It plays with no issue.

      This doesn’t sound like a subtitle renderer problem either. I really have no idea what is going on for those of you having problems. It may be a muxing error that some of you can’t play on whatever setup you’re using. It may be something else entirely. I’ll use the original encode to make the v2 for the batch just to make sure we avoid whatever this is.

    • AsuraE says:

      Just to be sure, you’re checking the CRC with a program on your end and not just comparing the CRC in the filename of your file to the filename online, right? It sounds stupid, but this has happened before.

  9. ZH says:

    Mind providing the .ass or .mks file? Right click on Haali Media Splitter tray icon and it says “No subtitles.” The video doesn’t even play unless you skip forward.

  10. ZH says:

    Never mind. Using outdated CCCP was the problem. Update. Now.

  11. noobhunterd says:

    i had the same problems like the subs wont load and had to skip forward for playback

    go options > internal filters
    then check Mastroka under source filters.
