Re: How To Rip a 3d bluray?

Yes, the MVC track was ripped; however, the resulting file does not play properly on my Epson. I'm using a Mac so that software isn't an option for me. I don't understand the mechanics of this process. Does the video software need to "pass-through" the video to the projector for decoding, similar to...

Re: How To Rip a 3d bluray?

I'm still stuck. I ripped the 3D movie and it should still be frame packed, right? It's the Mpeg4-MVC-3D file from the disc. My Epson 3700 is supposed to have native frame pack decoding but the only options I see are TB and LR. Glasses are synced to the projector fine. However, the video clearly has...

Re: How To Rip a 3d bluray?

If you have a projector that understands frame-packing, I'd stick with that instead of performing a conversion. Yes, my Epson 3700 has native 1080p frame-packing built in. The question I have, though, is do I need special software for my Mac to send the file to the projector to get 3d? Ideally, I'd...

Re: How To Rip a 3d bluray?

I convert the 3D MKV file to SBS (side by side), if you go this route you can use any standard playback software if your projector or TV has SBS - most do. Does it matter if it's left-right or right-left encoding? This is for an Epson 3700 projector. The manual says: Frame Packing Side by Side Top ...

Re: UHD playback on new VLC 3.0

VLC3 still stutters on my MacBook Pro dual core i7 (2017 model). On the other hand, IINA (Mac only) plays 4k MKV rips with no trouble at all. It has hardware decoding of HEVC. It is now my go-to app for playback.

What glasses do you use for SBS playback? How's the quality of the image?

Re: How To Rip a 3d bluray?

Thanks for the reply. I am encouraged by it! I have an Epson 3700 projector which will do 1080p SBS. So, I should rip a 3D movie (I don't have any yet) with MakeMKV, then use BD3D2MK3D.7z (I have a Windows 7 VM on my Mac) to convert it to SBS, then it can play back in Plex? Or do I need VLC or MPV? ...

Re: How To Rip a 3d bluray?

Bringing this thread back to life... So, the steps are: 1. Use MakeMKV to rip the 3D video as described in post 2 2. Use software that can display 3D file 3. Have a TV or projector that is 3D capable Is this correct? If so, do you know of software that can be used for 3D for shutter glasses on a Mac?

Re: Ex Machina

It seems to handle the DTS audio just fine in the 1080p rip as well as the 4k Handbrake file. Is there something different about the DTS track in the original 4k rip? I only extracted the 5.1 DTS audio from the 7.1 DTS-MA.

Ex Machina

Ripped Ex Machina 4k UHD using the current keys_hashed.txt file in my MakeMKV directory. Funny, though, my 3.2 gHz 6-core i7 Coffee Lake/UHD 630 gpu (8700/Asus BW-16D1HT) struggles playing the rip with VLC for some reason. I would have thought this chip would have handled the file just fine. Passed ...

Re: Unable to get UPnP working with Plex

I don't want to rip the disc to my hard drive, I want to play the movie straight off of the disc using UPnP. I tried with XBMC and it has the same problem.

Unable to get UPnP working with Plex

I am unable to get MakeMKV 1.5 to stream to Plex using UPnP. Here's what I'm doing: 1. Set up auto-discover UPnP in Plex 2. Insert Blu-ray disc ( Star Trek ), open it with Make MKV then start the streaming server 3. Back in Plex, choose the UPnP share ; EyeTV and Make MKV both show up 4. Open Make M...

Re: Playback

I'd like to add support to this as well. It would be rather trivial to add a function to Plex that could access the m2ts file or the appropriate playlist of a Blu-ray disc for playback. Plex already handles the three video codecs fine and it would probably be pretty easy to extract AC3 and DTS cores...
