cool. that said still kinda stinks as i have tons of files over 4 GBS but hey it is what it is and touchpads don't have much space anyways so not a big deal.

The file size limits on the Touchpad, whatever they are 2gbs or 4gbs, still apply so it would have to be an acceptable size but it's pretty fast.
oh another point is if i recall correctly this reencodes any audio to 2 channels because it is a tool aimed at xbox users and the xbox lacks 5.1 support for some containers. but i doubt that's a big deal since i don't think touchpads use 5.1 surround either.
For most stuff though i now use mkvextract if i have to extract, Yamb if i need to mux extracted files to an mp4. If i want to make an mkv i use mkvmerge.
