MKV image speeding up and out of sync

Postby Wern » Tue Sep 24, 2013 11:47 pm


I've been experiencing a problem while watching MKVs in PMS for quite some time (in several different PMS releases). What happens is while I'm watching a MKV video file sometimes the image speeds up going out of sync, while the audio stays normal; this happens irregularly, one day I may be watching a whole MKV of 2 hours length without this happening, but another day I may be watching the same MKV again and this problem happens every 3/5 mins. As far as I am aware, this happens with every MKV.
I tried several things to no avail: closed the MKV and played it again, restarted my PS3, closed and started PMS again... I searched this forum for solutions and only found topics describing this same problem (from 2 or 3 years ago) but with no one telling a final solution for this matter. I tried one suggestion, from one of those topics, which was to activate the "Force framerate parsed from FFMpeg" in MEncoder, but the problem remains.

Is there any solution for this?

I have the latest PMS (1.90.1), java is up to date and I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (also up to date).
I'm using MEncoder (at least that's the info that shows up when I open the MKVs in my PS3).
My PS3 is connected directly through a cable to my router and the same goes for my PC.

I have the same issue, yet none of the forum topics with this similar issue ever get replys....
