Uploading to Youtube/Vimeo
« on: January 23, 2018, 12:31:24 PM »
Hello all.
I have several KF videos using KF movie  maker64 and then run through Handbrake.  I'd like to add an audio track,  any suggestions for software to combine both video and sound track? Tried windows movie maker  but resultant quality was blotchy though smooth running. Buying Adobe Premier won't happen either.   Thanks.

FFMPEG should do it (maybe comes with Handbrake?), something like this perhaps:
Code: [Select]
ffmpeg -i video.mp4 -i audio.wav -codec:v copy -codec:a aac -b:a 384k -movflags +faststart output.mp4The key part is not to re-encode the video, hence the copy codec there.  The faststart flag makes it easier to stream the file (it puts various metadata at the front).

Note that Youtube will probably mash your carefully crafted file into blotchy oblivion, not sure about Vimeo...

Re -encoding was my problem, I'll give ffmpeg a try and take another look at Handbrake again. Thanks for the quick response.

YouTube will hammer any uploads for sure Vimeo is a tad more flexible probably.  Animation is not my forte so trial and error is the way forward.

This worked a charm and very quick, the video clip and audio clip need to be the same time length.     https://mkvtoolnix.download/   did try ffmpeg but my days of command line ended with Windows NT and Dos.6.1  :D

I would also try VirtualDub; it's what I use to collate frames and add audio. :)
