Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

DV support in Plex for Android has been out of beta for weeks now. It was a staged rollout so not everyone might've gotten it at the same time, but it's definitely out now. Can it work on the Sony A9G which allows installing android apps? It's probably the same release yeah, but don't expect it to ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

It's just not going to be the same even if it's released on iTunes; the audio and video quality will both be inferior. If you have a good sound system that can make use of the lossless audio, I would seriously consider investing in a Shield Pro. Otherwise, losing out on the lossless audio is ultima...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

This sort of coding is probably over my head, but I'll take a look and see if tinkering around turns into some fun. Thanks :-) I have a lot to re-do, sadly. I'll probably just rip fresh files and start from there. It's a real shame I've to swap in SRT subtitles for the PGS, and losing the lossless ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Hi. Sorry to ask for help in my first post, but after trawling through this (awesome and very long) thread, I haven't been able to find steps that work for me… Is there any way to convert a STDL MKV file with Dolby Vision into something the LG C8 will play with Dolby Vision? I looked at the test fi...

DV support in Plex for Android has been out of beta for weeks now. It was a staged rollout so not everyone might've gotten it at the same time, but it's definitely out now. So if I picked up a 2019 shield I would ready to roll? Or does the android version through shield differ then other platforms?...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

The MEL conversion played backed on the TV will be more accurate than the playback of the FEL file via the Shield. The Shield has color issues. I don't know for certain that you can say that the MEL conversion will be more accurate. On the one hand, there are proven issues with color with the Shiel...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Forgive me if I have missed something but I have read through this forum and am using the newest version of MakeMkv and am trying my best to test Dolby Vision working with Plex. I have ripped my disc copy of back to the future and can confirm I have ripped the proper title with chapters and choice ...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Sorry if I missed it in a previous post, but I'm trying to make sure I'm ripping a UHD with DV right using MakeMKV. I'm using MakeMKV 1.15.3, and I'm ripping Atomic Blonde as a self-lesson on this. In MakeMKV, I see duplicate titles with the exact same setup except the second title doesn't have Cha...

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: All 4K Releases Spreadsheet

Also a couple versions of films I noticed are missing are the StudioCanal releases of Leon the Professional and Cliffhanger that include DV. You have to remember that not all versions of a particular film do include DV. Terminator: Dark Fate is an example where the US release features DV but the Au...

Re: All 4K Releases Spreadsheet

Great work on the spreadsheet! Not sure where the information is being pulled from but a few things from first glance: *1917 is definitely not in 60fps. *Beverly Hills Cop 3 Movie Collection is only in Bluray, not UHD. The first movie is the only one being released in a week. *A couple versions of f...

Have you guys tried the tool created by @domy94 here?

It sounds like Mike might be incorporating his methods into the next release.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Been hearing some pretty negative things about this release over at the blu-ray forums. It sounds like it wasn't a very good encode by the StudioCanal folks. Let's see what the Lionsgate release (assuming it's a different encode) in two weeks looks like. Shuttle scene is atrocious indeed But with t...
