Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I seem to recall reading somewhere that it is possible for frames to get dropped when muxing to MKV. Has to do with timing, as I recall. (Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.) So, strictly speaking, TS is ideal, if bloated. This is also not a problem that a vast majority of people will ever noti...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

I know a couple of people at authoring houses. I'll see if some clips I can shoot (SDR and HDR) can get converted to DV using official equipment. Of course, I'd consider all this to be copyright-free (copyleft, IIRC?). :)

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I doubt MakeMKV will support conversion to other DV profiles. The policy has always been to just copy the data over into a new container, not to translate the data into other forms beyond what's absolutely necessary to get the data into MKV form. A more likely approach, IMO, would be for players to ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Hello beautiful people! Just a small update: I revised my code (Exoplayer) after the release of version 1.15.2. @shawnc22 has just tested (on the new Shield) an apk that i have prepared. The mkv test file is played correctly and Dolby Vision is successfully triggered. In the next few days I will re...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Weird question i guess but, anyone know of a player for androidtv/shield that can either playback 23.976p movies @ 24p, speed them up. Or if you know of an application that could speedup the video and audio without stripping the DV data? AFAIK, all you have to do is run everything through MKVToolni...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

On a related note, it looks like Nvidia 2019 Shield Pros are finally getting restocked. Just ordered one from B&H, and it looks like Newegg and Amazon have them too. Hurry if you want one too!

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I'm sorry to bumped up this question but no one seem to be giving me an overall idea on this Is this restriction on the player itself or the DV authoring prevent the "Zoom" happening but its possible still on HDR10 contains It's due to the processing chips being underpowered (or so Oppo claimed lon...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

So, my apologies if this has been brought up before, but Intel just released some drivers in the last week that enable Dolby Vision on their integrated graphics solutions going back to the UHD 610 (IIRC). I have no clue whatsoever how DV will be accessed via these drivers. Still, I suppose it's a go...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Personally, I'd hang onto the full backups, at least a little while longer. While I seriously doubt things will change significantly, there's always a chance that future solutions will, for whatever reasons, not work with these MKVs. I'm hanging onto my backups for awhile. Once we have a reasonable ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Thanks! Been waiting for this one for a long time. I'll have to fire up the Oppo and see how it handles the MKV. I'm not counting on anything but it would be awesome if it somehow used the DV layer. EDIT : As expected, the MKV plays only as HDR10 on the Oppo. A shame but very much expected. It's sti...

Re: Bridge on the River Kwai

It's just a tricky disc to rip. My LG and Asus full-size drives both choked on it, as I recall. I think I was finally able to rip it with my BU40N.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank everybody for their hard work. I'm super excited about the prospect of getting DV in an MKV container! :) Keep it up, everyone. This is awesome.

Re: AACS 2.1 support

Hi. First off, thanks to Mike for the support! Looking forward to picking up some AACS 2.1 discs now. :) I do have a question about the way that the support works. As I recall, there was a post where Mike simplified the concept of AACS 2.1. It had to do with some frames having alternate versions inc...
