Re: Conversion profile for anyone interested.

I'm late to the party here. Should I be using this custom profile or is the standard flac profile the ticket? I'm looking to playback raw mkv files directly from USB into the TV or sound bar but it's not liking the compressed multi channel audio. I'm obviously missing a step, like reprocessing the ...

Re: Conversion profile for anyone interested.

No, the quality is not the same, it's not lossless when you change the bit depth...

Increasse the compression ratio with the options I talked about earlier if you want to increase the compression ratio.

Re: DCADec

Yeah, it doesn't support downmixing, or sample rates above 96khz yet, but it's lossless with 5.1, 7.1 48khz, and 96khz content.

DCADec

you should switch from using Arcsoft's DTSDecoderdll.dll, to DCADec an open source, lossless DTS-HD decoder.

it's available on github.com/foo86/dcadec

Re: Conversion profile for anyone interested.

Yeah, I prefer to keep lossless audio, but if there is no lossless track, I'll manually select the best lossy track available.

Yup, just find the truehd/dtsma section and change <output outputSettingsName="FLAC" to <output outputSettingsName="copy"

Re: Feature Request: DVD-A and Blu-ray Audio support?

So, are you going to implement this feature? all you'd have to do is extract the chapters from the disc, and use the ffmpeg command -ss to seek to the start of the track (from the chapter time), and -to to the start of the next chapter time, and save everything between those two. however the last ch...

Feature Request: DVD-A and Blu-ray Audio support?

Can you include support for Audio only Blu-ray and DVD? Basically, an Audio-only DVD (aka DVD-A) is a DVD that includes no/little video, with most of the disc being used to store audio, in the PCM or MLP codec (very similar to TrueHD, FFmpeg supports it) and instead of the title being stored in the ...

Re: Bug reports

I'm using version 1.8.4 for Mac on mac (obviously). as in, if I try to open a m2ts file, I can't select it, only MKVs and BDMV folders are selectable. also, there are blu-ray's being released with no video, only audio (it's called High Fidelity Pure Audio by Universal Music Group as of now) and it'd...

Bug reports

and one feature request :p add m2ts demuxing support, it's a pain in the ass to have to mix from m2ts, to mkv, just to reencode the mkv for the final (3rd) time. The Matroska container uses the file extensions .mkv, .mka, .mks, and .mk3d, yet MakeMKV only supports opening .mkv files, and it's also a...

Conversion profile if else logic?

I want to have MakeMKV encode the flac audio using only the nessacary bits, no more of that 24 bit audio takes up 32 bits stuff, I found how to do that in FFmpeg using the pcm_s24le flag, but how can I make sure that 16 bit audio is encoded as 16 bit instead of 24? When I figure that out I plan on e...

Batch MKV conversion with FFmpeg?

Basically, what I want to do is that all the MKVs I've got, have ffmpeg open them up, convert the FLAC to FLAC with the best compression possible, then remove the original flac from the MKV, and mux in the new flac in it's place, how can I do this? and of course, I want ffmpeg to find ths MKVs itsel...

Re: FLAC settings?

Okay, right now in my profile, I have flac set to compression level 12, but the ffmpeg flac converter allows you to "search" for the best compression per sample, basically it compresses each one every possible way, then chooses the smallest one, it sounds like it'll use a lot of performance hit, but...

Re: DTS-HD HRA (XBR) decoding fails

Oh, so it's not even the lossless version that you're trying to convert to FLAC?
