It just boggles the mind that developers often forget entirely to define important terms in the Help files of their software (or at least in the ReadMe file) for the many noobs who will try out but often discard apps that don't explain basic jargon used in them. Like, for instance, QuickTime Muxer/Flattener's developer, who never explains or defines the words 'mux' or 'demux' (which I think mean binding together or separating out, respectively, the video and audio elementary streams and sometimes subtitles and other parts of a digital movie file), and 'flatten' (which I think means processing a Macintosh QuickTime movie file so that it will play in QuickTime on Windows PCs by combining all of the parts in its resource fork and data fork into just one linear, 'flattened' file - please correct me if I'm wrong). After going through every letter in that app I still had to spend 15 minutes searching the Internet for definitions of those words. Annoying.

Sorry to post a negative review, but I can't get QTMF to work for me at all. I am trying to correct MPEG2-TS files (EyeTV 500 recordings) that have problems playing back from my Mac to my I-O Data LinkPlayer2 media player. All of these files play perfectly on my Mac via EyeTV software. Running the files through ProjectX.jar corrects the underlying problems, yielding playable files on the LinkPlayer, but ProjectX doesn't have a multiplexer so there's no audio playback. I've tried every possible combination of demuxed .ts source files but I just can't get QTMF to bring generate any output file from the *.ac3.mov and *.m2t.mov data. QTMF appears to look at the source files briefly before giving up. It doesn't report any error message... it just doesn't MUX or flatten the data.

Perhaps QTMF is not the right tool for the job. I wish the User's Guide provided a better idea of what QTMF's capabilities were.

I hope others have better success with this program than I did.
