It appears that the file wasn’t ripped correctly. The file info also shows 4h 2mn as a duration. You may want to try ripping it again and check what video files are included.

Mkv containers support having multiple cuts in a single file called „editions“ through seamless branching. I don‘t think Infuse currently supports this. In some media players you can select which edition to play through the splitter (MPC-HC for example).

When the editions aren‘t read properly, all video in the file just gets played in the order that it is saved in the file. Usually one cut is in one piece first and then additional footage that gets inserted or replaces certain parts are at the end. You can probably still play the video and one version will play correctly but you can‘t select which one to play.

If this mkv had multiple videos wouldn’t it show as video id 2 and video 3 etc in the file info instead of just video id 1?

I think it is handled through chapters that get played at different times or skipped depending on how the edition defines it. Not really sure of the implementation. This page has some more details:

I would love for Infuse to support this!

I’ve been trying to find a sample MKV file that has multiple videos and have had zero luck. Honestly, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of a multi video mkv and it’s never been an issue I’ve run across. That’s why I’m curious to find one and have a chance to work with one.

This isn’t supported right now, but is something we’ll be looking into once things settle down after the upcoming 6.0 release.

Ping on support. Would be nice. :slight_smile:

This would be very much appreciated!

Hello everyone,
I just bought the latest Star Wars Movie and stumbled across this. Infuse 6 is out for a while now: So has this been added?

Background: I created a version of the Star Wars Movie with the German and the English scrolling text at the beginning. The file also has two EDITIONS in the mkv chapter information so I can switch between the two text versions. Works great on VLC on my Mac. I would to some more movies (Avatar, Gladiator, …) now, if I know it works in Infuse or is coming anytime soon (as promised by James above)
