Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Excellent work yusesope! May I ask you to do the same for MEL? Sure, over the weekend. But first it would be better if someone confirmed the correct functioning of the current file (otherwise it is useless to create other files). Not that we need it, as the custom version of ExoPlayer has been meet...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Plex uses ffmpeg primarily, so Exoplayer is only for format support on Android. We rarely see plex doing features for one platform only Ahhh most of the threads always talk about a custom version of ExoPlayer "unlocking" DV in Plex on the Shield (or at least the Plex plugin for Kodi). What would be...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

First of all, many thanks special to mike who made dv possible in mkv files. well done. I'm still a few days away and I'm looking forward to testing everything when I get back. If PGS subtitles with Plex would be possible that would save a lot of time in muxing. If I understand and remember that co...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Thanks jayper. I followed or at least tried to follow this from the beginning, but there are so many technical details, where I had to give up. To be honest, i could imagine that it will be a looong time before you see hardware supporting this way of using DV in mkv, besides the Shield, which uses ...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

So if i saved a backup using the feature in MakeMKV, I should be able to rip from that as well too right? Yes, backups are always like a source disc, everything is preserved, even if a backup was made by a two year old MakeMKV. Do you recommend holding off for 1.15.3 before I start pulling discs ou...

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 and 1.15.1

I am not sure 'Dolby Vision v2 Detection' is meant to imply that. I just tested 1.15.2 with Spartacus and I am not seeing DV listed in MediaInfo 20.03. Not to mention the MKV Dolby Vision spec wasn't completed until June and the last version of MediaInfo was April. You're right. The developer of Me...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I'd read the fine print there. And not get too excited. I would say we're at least weeks away if not more from seeing anything happen. That's if we're lucky.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

This is playing back with Plex on the 2019 Shield? I actually haven't heard of anyone getting it to work. You can mux them in, but with a PGS subtitle selected during playback, it might play for a second or so, and then it'll pop up with an error and the video will stop. Sorry, my mistake, actually...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Now that https://github.com/cellar-wg/matroska-specification/pull/390 has landed, mkv now has official, documented support for Dolby Vision in mkv, similar to what was already possible with MakeMKV. With this official spec now available, will MakeMKV be updating to use the official spec? Mike contr...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Hello guys. I'm new here. I'm curious about the possibility of Dolby Vision and MKV. A question, as I still don't quite understand the subject: When preparing a remux of BD 4K (HDR10/HDR10+ and DV) will be merged in just one video? Will this process reencode? Is it possible to join the two videos w...
