Jerky video is fixed in 8.0.3

The mono sound track is one that is now in most UK broadcasts of digital terrestrial television. It is a track that tells people with visual impairment what is happening on the screen if the other track is quiet. The track may be silent for the majority of some TV programmes, so it will seem like it is a blank track, but it always appears to be in mono. I don't know what was happening when I first upgraded, but Toast now seems to be picking up the correct audio tracks (though I haven't changed anything).

I tried the workaround of exporting the video from EyeTV then importing it into Toast in the old version. I haven't tried it in this version yet. I know that Popcorn was fixed, so I am hoping Toast is too, now. Popcorn's crashing was no good since you couldn't save your disc settings before it crashed. At least with Toast, when it crashes, you can get your (sometimes complex) disc settings back again. I'll try the new version with my PAL EyeTV files in anamorphic, since it was guaranteed that these would always skip.

I have finished checking, and my PAL MPEG-2 720x576, 25fps video encodes without the jerking or juddering in 8.0.3 and there is no need to export it first.

 

The issue it has thrown up is that the language "fix" that appeared to have picked up the correct language tracks for each video (most video is broadcast in the UK with a mono commentary track and the actual video track in stereo, so I had to go and swap all the mono for stereo tracks where it had picked up the wrong one) so I merrily burned the DVD to find that it had said it had the stereo track but had actually still picked up the mono one (wrong language). When I went to adjust them, the pull-down menu to select the audio track showed both tracks as the same (both stereo english) and when you switched to the "other" track, it would show them both as mono, even though the stereo one was selected. This is going to be a real pain to select audio tracks or spot when they are wrong. At least we have fixed the skipping problem...

 

Atlantic,

 

I think the problem is with the EyeTV stream rather than Toast. Occasionally I used to get no sound at all, but in Toast7 I always did a get-info in the video pane and if the sound was labelled "mono", I knew I had to Export to Toast and then drop the file in the pane. I've noticed that in Toast 8 the info is already in view, so I'm looking out for "mono" there. We'll see if it works, although I suspect simply changing the language pop-up won't do. Elgato told me that the video stream probably has a glitch, and that if the sound is ok in the EyeTV playback, exporting to Toast first will resolve the problem. By the way, I also get problems with Film4. The video stream is Always re-encoded when burning to Toast. This seems to be the way the stream is broadcast, and Elgato told me is was something Roxio would need to look at.
