Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Is it really creating a single layer DV from the dual layer DV track? If that is the case, the code for doing this available for anyone to use. Could be added into Makemkv, an option to create a single layer DV track. I don't really think it's doing that. The command line options seem to imply there...

Re: WANTED: Results of UHD Rips with Dolby Vision

That 1920x1080 'HDR' layer is the Dolby Vision Metadata. I don't know why folks say MKV doesn't support a separate DV track alongside the HDR track. I've taken a full disk rip (of my legally purchased Valerian UHD), and used MKVtoolnix to mux the HDR and DV tracks from the main .M2TS file together i...

Re: macOS 10.14 Mojave Compatibility

No SCSI errors here with Mojave, just a nice errorless copy.

Re: WANTED: Results of UHD Rips with Dolby Vision

Dolby might be lessening their restrictions on requiring specific hardware to decode their proprietary HDR. This should pave the way for media players based on the Nvidia Shield Tv, Apple Tv, and others to merge the video tracks into the proper format for presentation. This article is dated Feb 2017...

Re: Hasked Key silently updated

That's not the newest update. 1.12.3 is downloading a copy and putting it either in a different location, different file format, or both. If I had to guess, it's now part of '_private_data.tar' which appeared to be the only new file in my MakeMKV data directory. This new location/format is incompati...

Re: G.I Joe Rise of the Cobra & Retaliation

I had same issue with Cars 3 UHD. 12.2.3 failed with a hash check error on an ASUS drive, and a LG drive. Reverting back to 12.2.2 and it ripped fine with no errors.

Re: MakeMKV to Handbrake for 4K (UHD)???

Some of us who have paid for these UHD disks want the video quality we paid for, so the movies don't get run through Handbrake and degraded to lower quality video. If you are going to do HEVC encoding you'll need hardware support to accomplish it. Thank you for your reply. I know it isn't a Handbrak...

Re: UHD playback on new VLC 3.0

Ironically my mac pro 2013 is playing back 24fps UHD movies with no frame skipping at all, but brand new imacs with hardware support built into the Intel chips are skipping frames.

This is loads better than VLC 2.0. I couldn't play UHD disks at all.

Re: UHD drives

I did the same thing. Removable media drives don't last forever, and this hole will eventually be plugged by the drive manufacturers. Decided to buy a second ASUS BW-16D1HT for peace of mind. First one was Dec 2016 3.00. New one is Jan 2017 3.00, and is also working just fine. My regular Blu-ray dri...

Re: How to Convert MKV to M2TS

I don't think your going to be able to view HDR content on a non-HDR TV without it looking washed out. It's just not going to look right.

Re: UHD support

Looks like Asus has just brought out 3.0.2 firmware for the asus BW-16D1HT as of 1/15/2018. I bet it closes the hole.

Re: UHD drives

You need a drive that is UHD 'friendly'. That is, it's not completely compliant with the security used to protect these disks. It's this non-compliance that allows the OS to read from these disks. Here's the 'UHD friendly' list from the DEUHD folks: LG BE16NU50(external, USB, recommended) LG WH16NS4...

Re: Adding Keys?

Another slew of keys published on doom9 today, but with the cryptic comment "The magic spring dries out".

That doesn't sound good.
