Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Any idea if the new software clients from Plex/Kodi etc will allow us to select HDR10 instead of DV for certain titles? I'm thinking of cases where there was a poor implementation of DV and the HDR10 layer does a better job with the video. Yes, most TV's come with the option to turn Dolby Vision On/...

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

That is the same location of "fixed position" dropouts that one or more of Exoplayer/Shield updates fixed. It looks like the Kodi devs haven't addressed this in their player yet.

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

This issue has been bothering me more than it should over the last few months, so I ended up writing my own tool because still no demuxer (including MakeMKV 1.15.1) handles TrueHD flawlessly. https://github.com/domyd/mlp The core issue was never Atmos or high bitrate. It is simply caused by demuxer...

Re: Issue with UK Masters Of Cinema Blu-rays. Maybe others?

Had a similar issue ripping The Expanse UK S1 and S2 blurays having similar title cards (with the S1 episodes additionally having a wasteful 15 minutes tail of soundless video after the end credits). Mastering error or laziness? Depends how the publisher handle the provided upstream video. Just use...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Looks like ExoPlayer guys are not in the mood of give support to DV to MKV any time soon, they are suggesting to others make a pull request instead, https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer/issues/7267#issuecomment-628588167 I wonder if we have here in this forum someone capable of take a look into thei...

Re: Issue with UK Masters Of Cinema Blu-rays. Maybe others?

Thanks for the info, Grauhaar.

Hopefully, Mike can take care of this issue or at least offer an option to only remux the intended video signal. It doesn't make sense to remux the entire video when parts of it were never meant to be viewed.

Grauhaar, do you know what thread this was in? I searched the forum before posting and couldn't find any details on this issue.

Issue with UK Masters Of Cinema Blu-rays. Maybe others?

I've just started noticing an issue with some UK Master of Cinema discs that contain an extra video "segment" that is usually 1 minute long before the movie starts. This "segment" can include things like colour bars, title cards containing technical info, blank video etc. Similarly, I've noticed tha...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Why is [2019 shield tube] the wrong one, they both offer Dolby Vision support. If you are looking to use it to run a Plex server or need the extra memory then I agree the pro version is the one to get. For myself, I already run my Plex server on dedicated hardware so I just need the DV support in t...

Re: Ripping Dolby Atmos into MKV

Just thought I would add some info I've read lately to help those trying to troubleshoot Dolby Atmos/TrueHD audio dropout issue many are/were experiencing, especially on Disney titles. As well, this should help those who believe all their dropout issues are due to MakeMKV. The latest MakeMKV release...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I'm going back and remuxing some UHD's to make sure the Dolby Vision layer is handled by MakeMKV and any Atmos tracks are properly output now that the latest version handles both of these items. I will often remux my UHD disc and then use MKVTOOLNIX to combine tracks from other MKV's. For example, m...
