I recently used my Xbox 360 HD-DVD player to convert about 30 HD-DVD movies into MKV files.

The MKV HD-DVD conversions have a frame rate of 29.97.

When the MKV HD-DVD conversions are watched in MPC-HC there is a "noticeable" amount of choppiness and stuttering in the frame rate.

When the MKV HD-DVD conversions are watched in VLC Media Player there is a "significant" amount of severe choppiness and severe stuttering in the frame rate.

When I use Handbrake to convert the HD-DVD movies, the frame rate switches to 23.976 and the file is played perfectly smooth in both MPC-HC and VLC Media Player. The Handbrake settings I use for Frame Rate are "Constant" and "Same As Source."

In comparison, here is what happens when I use my laptop to convert standard DVD movies into MKV files.

The MKV standard DVD conversions have a frame rate of 29.97.

When the MKV standard DVD conversions are watched in MPC-HC at a Frame Rate of 29.97, the movies play smoothly. The only time there is even a slight "stutter" is when scrolling occurs for movie credits at the end of the movie.

When the MKV standard DVD conversions are watched in VLC Media Player at a Frame Rate of 29.97, the movies play smoothly. The only time there is even a slight "stutter" is when scrolling occurs for movie credits at the end of the movie.

When I use Handbrake to convert standard DVD movies, the frame rate either switches to 23.976 or remains at 29.97 depending on the movie, and the file is played perfectly smooth in both MPC-HC and VLC Media Player. If the Frame Rate has changed from 29.97 to 23.976, there has been a slight improvement and there is no longer even a slight "stutter" when scrolling occurs for movie credits at the end of the movie. If the frame rate has remained at 29.97, the smoothness has remained the same - including at the end of the movie when scrolling credits occur.

In other words, standard DVDs play perfectly smoothly at all times regardless of frame rate, format, or media player. In comparison, the HD-DVD conversions suffer from problems at 29.97 frames per second in MKV format, and the problems are far worse in VLC Media Player than they are in MPC-HC.

I have read online that these same types of problems I'm talking about with HD-DVD files also occur with Blu-ray conversions to MKV format. In other words, these problems with a choppy frame rate occur with all HD files - both HD-DVD and Blu-ray.

Can someone please tell me how to correct this problem when the files are converted to MKV format? ... I really do not want to spend the HUGE amount of time converting all those HD files using Handbrake. Space is not an issue, because I have an 8TB Hard Drive. I simply want to quickly convert the HD files using Make MKV. But as of right now it is very annoying that there is such choppiness and stuttering in the frame rates.

All help is appreciated. ... Thank you.

EXAMPLES:

* All HD-DVD movies I have seen so far have a frame rate of 23.976 on the disc; however, MakeMKV converts the files to 29.97 frames per second. Handbrake then converts the MakeMKV files back to 23.976 where they were supposed to be.

* Terminator 2: Ultimate Edition on DVD has a frame rate of 29.97 on the disc. MakeMKV allows this file to remain at 29.97. Handbrake also keeps the file at 29.97. The credits in the movie scroll at the end and are smooth on the disc, smooth when watching the converted file from MKV, and smooth when watching the Handbrake file.

* The Terminator on DVD has a frame rate of 23.976; however, MakeMKV converts the files to 29.97 frames per second. Handbrake then converts the MakeMKV files back to 23.976 where they were supposed to be. The credits in the movie scroll perfectly smoothly on the disc and perfectly smooth on handbrake, but slightly "stutter" in the MakeMKV file that runs at the different frame rate of 29.97.

UPDATE:

I recently converted my first MakeMKV Blu-ray, which is Terminator Genisys. The Terminator Genisys on Blu-ray runs at 23.976 frames per second. I expected MakeMKV to convert this at a frame rate of 29.97; however, that is not what happened. Make MKV converted Terminator Genisys at a rate of 23.976. The entire movie, including the scrolling credits, runs smoothly in both MPC-HC and VLC Media Player.
