Does anyone have any recommendations for converting/extracting .mkv files for vidding purposes when MKVExtract and MKVCleaner have failed you?

Specifically I have .mkv files of the Bluray seasons of Agent Carter but my normal method of extracting the video using MKVExtract isn't working.

Firstly, thank you for writing a fic or making a vid for me. I can't wait to see what you create!

So I was thrilled when we got a Peggy Carter TV show since I loved the character in First Avenger.

The first season was pretty great but I'll be honest, I was not too fond of Season 2. It had some great moments but overall I found it lacking.

I kinda hated Peggy/Daniel a lot. I hated after being turned down for drinks Daniel apparently had a tantrum, moved across the country, ignored Peggy, got engaged and then broke off the engagement, and we're somehow supposed to believe Peggy still likes him and this is supposedly a romantic story?

So, uh, normally I don't do this but please don't include their in my gift. Either by writing it out or just pretending it never existed. How the show created their relationship really annoys me. I'm sorry if you like them :( :( :(

I also hated how they seemed to screw over their female characters. I hated how Angie wasn't there despite the season being set in LA and it would make perfect sense for her to have move out there. I hated how Violet just seemed to disappear after Daniel broke up with her. I hated how Whitney's story was resolved. She started off such a great villian and then it all just fizzled out. I hated how Ana's plotline about not being able to have kids seemed to be more about giving Jarvis angst then how it affected her.

But there were things I liked about Season 2 (which tended to be what I liked from Season 1). I love Peggy, of course. I liked Peggy and Jarvis' relationship. I liked Howard Stark (not so much as a person but he was great fun to watch as a character). I loved Dottie (the only reason I am not requesting her is because I got a lovely fic about her last year). I liked the new characters we got and the ones we got to see more of: Ana, Jason, Rose, and Whitney. I don't mind Daniel and Jack in a working relationship but I don't really care about them romantically or as focus characters.

General Likes/Dislikes

I always find it really hard to list anything here.

In general I don't really want anything with a high rating in regards to violence, dark themes, noncon, etc. But I don't mind a high rating in regards to sex. And despite how little I liked Daniel in Season 2 I don't want any "character bashing".

The list of things I like in fic is too varied but hopefully the notes above and below give you an idea of the kind of stories I like.

In regards to vids. I like vids that flow to the music and I don't like vids that are heavy on effects or "talky" face.

Music wise I'm up for any song choice as long as it suits the vid both in tone and lyrics. But I like songs for Agent Carter that have a little "old-timey" feel if you know what I mean.

Specific prompts

Peggy Carter

Yeah, so I ♥ Peggy Carter. Anything that focuses on her would be great. I don't have any specific request in mind. It can't be during the war, during working at the SSR, during working at SHIELD, during an AU where she mysteriously ends up in modern day. It's all good!

I like seeing her relationships with the other female characters or with Steve, Howard, Jarvis and the Howling Commandos. But anything focusing just on her is still good.

Peggy Carter & Angie Martinelli

I loved their relationship in Season 1. Anything that explores this further would be great. I would love a story where Angie gets caught up in one of Peggy's missions and seeing just how awesome Peggy is and just what her job entails.

Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli

As above, I loved their relationship and I have no preference whether it's platonic or romantic.

Peggy Carter & Violet

As above, I hated what happened with Violet. Not only how she just disappeared but how it seems like she only existed to give Daniel angst.

So I would love a story that sees Peggy and Violet becoming friends and exploring who Violet is further. After all, having a nurse as a friend probably has some perks considering Peggy's line of work.

Peggy Carter/Jason Wilkes

I really loved Jason's character and if Peggy had to be in a romantic relationship I was totally rooting for him. So any story with them working together or getting together romantically, or both, would be great. I loved how every time they saw each other they just seemed to smile so widely at each other. Like I said above I don't want any character bashing, so while I do want Daniel out of the picture I would prefer he wasn't vilified in order to get Peggy and Jason together.

Peggy Carter/Gabe Jones

I know Peggy married Gabe in the comics but I haven't actually read them and don't know much more than that. But I really liked Peggy's relationship with the Howling Commandos in episode 1x05 and it speaks of a much stronger relationship then what we saw in the First Avenger. So I would love to see a story about Peggy building a relationship with Gabe but also seeing her with the rest of the Howlies.

Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

I love Steve/Peggy so much and I am devastated we never got to explore their relationship further. So any kind of fic or vid about them would be delightful. I don't care when or where or how AU it is, I just love them together.

I don't really see either of them settling down in to a "typical" relationship ie. get married, kids, white picket fence, etc. So it would be interesting to see how they navigate their relationship among their unique jobs. Nor would I expect their relationship to be completely smooth sailing either. I think both of them are far too stubborn for that.

Angie Martinelli/Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

I've only read one story with this pairing but I thought it would be interesting. Angie and Steve are both clearly important to Peggy so it would be interesting to see how a relationship works out. And I think it would be interesting to see how Steve and Angie would interact. They could bond over the theatre and performing!

Also, I think it would be funny because Steve doesn't really know how to interact with one woman, let alone two.

Dear Equinoxxer (is that the term?),

Firstly, thank you for making a vid for me. You will see my fandom choices below with some extra details if you are after prompts but really, any kind of vid in any of the fandoms will be great!

I'm also fairly easy going with music. I have no favourite genres but I do like "unique" music choices for vids, ones that you wouldn't normally expect.

So yeah, have fun and thank you again!

Farscape

This is the show of my heart ♥ I love it so much and have continued to love it after all these years. It's the show that introduced me to fandom, to fanfiction, and to vidding.

So really, any Farscape vid would be AMAAAAZZZZING!

However, John and Aeryn are my favourite characters and John/Aeryn is my OTP of OTPs. So a vid focusing on one of them or both would be great. But seriously, any kind of Farscape vid. (Except for Crais, I never really liked him.)

Firefly

Firefly is also a favourite show of mine. Again, any kind of Firefly vid would be great. I really liked the combo of the two different themes: space and westerns. I thought that was really cool.

So yeah, any Firefly vid is cool.

I did list River Tam as the only character in my request because if I had to pick a character I would like a vid about her. But seriously, any kind of Firefly vid would be cool. (Except for Jayne, mostly because I don't like the actor anymore.)

Star Wars

I have to admit, I never really got in to the Star Wars movies as a fandom. I was too young when the original series came out and the prequels were fun but I never really connected.

However, after Episode VII (which I did very much enjoy) I started learning more about Leia and Carrie Fisher. One of the things that struck me was Carrie mentioning the fact that they had to soften Leia down for Episode VI because she was perceived as too much of a "space bitch". Which is buuulllshiiit but I would love a vid about Leia that spans from the original series to Force Awakens that embraces the "space bitch" and any other injustice down to her character ie. Leia having her entire planet blown up but Luke is the one who gets comforted when Obi-Wan dies. And not to say that there is anything wrong with softness but not when it's forced upon you.

Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens (2015)

So like I said above, yeah, I never really got in to Star Wars but I did really enjoy The Force Awakens and I would love a video about Rey or Finn or Poe or all three. I thought all of them were delightful!

Stargate SG-1

Stargate SG-1 is also a favourite scifi show. Not quite up there with Farscape but definitely close. Again, any kind of Stargate vid is fine. I do prefer the original four team members though.

However, if you could do some sort of crossover with Farscape, that would be amazing!!! Either a direct crossover where the Ancients from both shows are one and the same, or some weird dimension tripping crossover thing where the actors that were on both shows are one and the same. Or something. Good luck with that!

Firstly, as always, thank you Festividder for making me a vid! I'm sure I will love anything you make.

I don't really have any specific likes or dislikes about vids in general except for saying that I like unique music choices and editing that really flows to the beat of the music.

Below are my nominations. I don't really have many specific requests and I may have spent more time hunting down the gifs then writing any helpful information about the sources. But really, any kind of vid from any of the fandoms is going to be totally awesome. I've noted my favourite thing out of each if it helps (it probably doesn't) but seriously, vid what works for you.

And as always, treats are awesome!

Black Swan, Bob's Burgers, Discworld, Galavant, Inside & Monument ValleyCollapse )
Have fun!

Festivids reveals are up! I made vid for the movie Push starring Chris Evans.



Comment and download on Youtube / Reblog on Tumblr

Hilariously, my Festividder turned out to be my Festividdee so we ended up making a vid for each other. So I now know that [archiveofourown.org profile] himundergreen made my Edge of Tomorrow vid.

And I also know now that [personal profile] violace made my Limbo. Which I totally guessed! In my head.

But thank you again to both of you :)

Now I shall go back to lurking under my rock.

Festivids is live!

I sadly only made vid this year. My vidding mofo deserted me but I was still pleased with the vid I made.

I luckily received two awesome vids this year:

Full Metal March (Cambreadth to the Edge) - a Rita themed Edge of Tomorrow vid.
A Forest - a Limbo game vid

I have an idea as to who made the Limbo vid but we'll see when reveals come. Either way, they were both great vids and than you again to the vidders.

Hopefully, now that the stress of making the Festivids deadline is over, I can get back to some other vids.

So I made 9 posts here last year. One of which was my 2014 review post. Heh.

Vids made this year:

Yellow Flicker Beat [Transistor] for Festivids
Tuning Out [Van Helsing] for Festivids
The Draw [Teen Wolf; Derek/Scott] for the Teen Wolf Rare Pair Exchange
The Pit [Guardians of the Galaxy; Peter Quill] for Space Swap
Ghost [Teen Wolf; Allison/Lydia] for the Allydia Reverse Bang
When I get my hands on you [Marvel; Steve/Peggy]
I bet my life [Teen Wolf; Family feels] for the Vividcon Auction
Everybody wants to rule the world [Guardians of the Galaxy; Gamora & Nebula]

Favourite vid:

The Draw, hands down. It was easy to make. It was fun to make. I felt it had a concise flow. It had a good reception. Inwardly, I am still applauding myself for it.

Pluses:

I made two more vids this year than last. I started making graphics and stuff on Tumblr and am doing pretty well. It's pretty awesome when my posts start hitting over 1000 notes.

Minuses:

I accomplished none of the goals I made for 2015, lolololol. I still have thoughts about making a vidding land comm. I still have thoughts about making recs and things. I still have thoughts about commenting and posting more. But we'll see what happens. Lololololol.

Current fandoms:

I think it's safe to say I am no longer in the Supernatural fandom and plan to make no more vids in it. I haven't seen the last two seasons though so it's possible that if I get around to watching it I will get hit with more feels. Although, 11 seasons of footage, ugh.

I am also probably also out of the Teen Wolf fandom although I do still have plans to finish off my current vid bunnies. I haven't seen the last season and am kinda low key hoping the series gets cancelled so that I have a finite amount of footage to work from.

I am currently in the Marvel fandom and am desperately looking forward to Civil War. I have a bunch of Marvel vids I want to make all generally centered around Steve Rogers so hopefully I get the motivation to make them. Ugh, vidding is hard.
