MKV Yellow Exclamation Mark During Output

I'm using VRDTVS v5.0.2.707
I have a .mkv file that I wanted to increase the audio on.
It gets to 8% about a minute after starting and that is when the yellow exclamation mark appears.
After about 4 minutes, it says that it has an hour to go and the time is constantly increasing by the milliseconds.
I aborted the save after 10 minutes when it said it had 2 hours to go.

I done the same audio increase in VRDTVS v4.21.10.681 with no problems.

Is anyone else seeing this issue?

Is this occurring on just one file or all files when you increase the volume?

What are the file properties? Load a file into VideoReDo and press Ctrl+L, press the "Copy to Clipboard" button and paste the results here.

How much of a volume bump?

It's not happening here, I tried increasing audio in multiple files and all finished (and then played Back) fine.

Try saving the file without the audio increase, that will tell us if it's the file itself having the issue or the audio recode triggered by the volume increase.

Ok, Just to try and see what happens I made a short MPG MKV file and
increased the audio volume by 5X. It played louder in VRD V5 but not the saved file.

V4 did seem to increase the volume. Got quite distorted on the second 5X.
Audacity showed a huge difference in the V4 volume increased files.


EDIT... I also increased the V5 volume of a h264 AC3 MKV and the audio stayed AC3!
So it's not working.

I thought I already fixed that bug.

When you saved did it have the message saying that an audio recode was required?

Once I upped the volume I did get a "audio recode was required" message but the saved file still
had AC3 audio.

I've increased the volume by 14.0db.

Saving without the audio increase still produces the same problem.

This looks very similar to what I experienced using the elementary stream muxer, which I reported in another thread!
I uploaded files per request but have not seen a reply regarding the issue.

When I try to use the elementary stream muxer in V:5.0.2.707 with a .264 video and mp4 audio to mp4, no recode required, I get the yellow exclamation point too!
When I use v4:21.10.681 the same files mux successfully.

Try going to Tools->Options->H.264 and increasing the "IDR cut secs" to 10 and see if that helps.

That worked Dan however the audio increase did not happen in the saved file. As a test, I decreased the audio to 0 and the audio level is the same volume as the original file.
