Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Hello, little news. I made a mkv dv profile 8 file which didn't play on the Zidoo Z9x, with audio track and subtitle, it blocked the zidoo altogether. With the help of a colleague (Ramutcho) who was able to test, by removing the pgs (subtitle) the mkv goes well in dv. It would be necessary to test ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

My 2nd question is thus, are FEL to MEL conversions played by a TV's onboard player known to be any more or less accurate in playback than a straight FEL .mkv via the Shield at this point? The MEL conversion played backed on the TV will be more accurate than the playback of the FEL file via the Shi...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Sorry in advance. Fairly novice user here. I've got some mkv remux's with 2 streams, 4k video and 1080p DV. Would this update mean they can convert in to a single stream? Would that look bad if played on an non DV tv? My goal is to take these remuxed mkv files and compress them to a friendlier file...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Woaaa Horsey... Get the pro version, have you not read the reviews of the tube? I have. Actually, I found much more negative reviews, especially regarding Wifi on the pro version. I don't need more internal storage, the USB-Ports are useless, 1GB more Ram will also not make much of a difference, I ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I successfully converted one GOT episode to MEL, HDR10+ was not present --> ISO --> back to mkv --> mkvmerge all audio tracks and subtitles pgs and srt. I compared DoVi MEL with the Fire TV Stick 4k and plex from my qnap nas with the original FEL muxed in mp4 (2 video streams), which plays directly...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Was away for a few weeks, could not log in to check the updates. My understanding is there is a good proven method of creating DV MEL files for both MEL and FEL>MEL for devices like Fire TV 4K Stick and Nvidia Shield in MKV through Plex. Can someone summarize how to get it done step by step? I woul...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I have no idea. Owners of other devices do not complain about this problem. When I have time and you are available maybe we could do some tests together to understand where the problem lies. But first I have to extend GAMMA support to Linux too, fix the creation of the mp4 DTDL files, add chapter s...

Can't spot any "red push" issues. :D
Played nicely by the latest Plex

I really like it as HDR demo, so much colours :shock:

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Hi Yusesope. It would seem that MKV FEL converted to 8.1 with Beta 004 triggers Dolby Vision on the new Zidoo products. MKV FEL to 8.1 with Gamma doesn't trigger Dolby Vision on the new ZIdoo products. Is there a reason for this, what is the difference? Thank you. I have no idea. Owners of other de...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I’m trying to make a dual track mp4 file of watchmen with the old version of mp4muxer which worked fine for many movies (at least 20). The issue I’m having with Watchmen is that mp4muxer stops immediately without any error message, it juste creates a 0mb mp4 file and stops instantly. I really think...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Sorry to be "that guy", but is there a method to convert a DV .mp4 file to a DV .mkv file which plays on the shield 2019 hidden somewhere? Came across something interesting to try out :P On the first post of the Makemkv 1.5.3 thread Mike gives a ffmpeg command line to convert back to MKV then run i...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

How does that process work with GAMMA? Now the -exp switch also accepts the path of a BluRay folder as input (the address of the folder that contains the BDMV folder). Download the new version from the original GAMMA post I also added the -playlist switch to be able to select the playlist of intere...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I believe it uses the last (or biggest or something). Not necessarily the right MPLS. I would like to specify... Hi, I have previously posted if you know what playlist you need you can ‘temporary remove’ the other playlists from the playlist folder and ffmpeg will then process the correct one, it a...
