Re: BIN file from LG Drive flash EXE file

I picked this drive up few years ago and MakeMKV software noted that it was possible to use it for LibreDrive, so I thought I would give it a Go. Thank you for the .bin files. It looks like it is not really allowing me to flash it in Windows as I get the same error: "Checksum is mismatched. Drive w...

This means that MakeMKV GUI just exited normally, without crash. Do you see MakeMKV window open at all?

Re: BIN file from LG Drive flash EXE file

Amazing. I've never seen any single reference to NS48 drive, not a single FW dump or reference. Are these drives being made?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I have rendered every single frame of a FEL (Terminator) and an MEL (Joker) stream. Thanks for doing this! This is amazing discovery that sums it up nicely. However, I believe it is appropriate to keep it. 100% Agree, MakeMKV will never do "dvd fab method" - the cost of keeping EL is negligible and...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

So what does all this mean exactly :lol: Are we going to be able to make DV files in Makemkv and convert them to .TS? Yes, in the next version. But, hopefully, even with current MKV samples we will be able to bug and poke firmware and playback software authors, so they add support for MKV container...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I converted the mkv files you posted to ts with tsMuxer, and they both playback correctly triggering Dolby Vision on the 2019 Shield. So this IS just a container check, and hardware can use this encoding method. We're good! I too converted your files with tsmuxer. In firestick 4k both files trigger...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I believe that it is not possible to discard anything. Regardless of the type of EL (fEL or mEL), in the case of a dvhe.04 or dvhe.07 profile, the Dolby Vision Composer accepts synchronized decoded BL and EL video frames and metadata information and uses metadata to reconstruct 12bit Dolby Vision v...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Here are several clips of 23 seconds each relating to the Joker movie First of all , thanks a lot for doing this! You did write the history. Now, to avoid some confusion, let me sum it up and please correct me if I'm wrong on any account. DV streams may have different profiles and configurations. S...

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

No, that's something else... MakeMKV currently has problems remuxing movies with atmos sound and seamless branching (Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, many many more). The audio problems happen at the branchpoints, and Kodi plays them without crashing - but the AVR or whatever is actually d...

Re: Old code

@mike admin: Yes, I installed hundreds of XP. I was in the IT sector for a very long time. Apologies, that was a bad irony on my part.

Re: MakeMKV 1.15.0 libmmbd.dll integration option

Oh, a bug...
Does it work if you delete makemkvcon64.exe and copy makemkvcon.exe to makemkvcon64.exe?
