am i correct when i say 59.94fps + DV is beyond HDMI2.0b standard?
no you are not.
no playback issue on bluray players. My x700 play that movie at 60fps in DV+ Atmos + subs just fine.
thinking of buying x700, does it play profile 7 .ts or .mp4 with atmos from network share or plex?
im also curious, how do you know its actually recognizing DV, when u have to enable DV in settings, we dont know that its triggering and playing it correctly?
thanks

Cool, I'm glad they worked for you. Here are the steps to create them. For this example, I used Birds of Prey which is MEL. Just change the inputs/outputs to your source.


1. Extract the BL and EL to separate hevc files and any audio tracks you want. I prefer to use eac3to for this task. You can use ffmpeg if you want. Here are both commands:

eac3to N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\BDMV\PLAYLIST\00800.mpls 1) 2: N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\BL.hevc 3: N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\EL.hevc 4: N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\audio.ac3 -core

ffmpeg -y -hide_banner -analyzeduration 999M -probesize 999M -playlist 00800 -i bluray:N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY -map 0:0 -c:v copy N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\BL.hevc -map 0:1 -c:v copy N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\EL.hevc -map 0:2 -c:a ac3 -b:a 640k N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\audio.ac3


2. Shrink the BL. I use NVencC64 for this using a bitrate of 25000k. The command is:

NVEncC_5.01_x64\NVEncC64 --avhw -i N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\BL.hevc --output-res 3840x2160 --fps 23.976 --codec h265 --preset quality --level 5.1 --profile main10 --tier high --output-depth 10 --lookahead 32 --vbrhq 25000 --output-buf 64 --aud --colorprim bt2020 --colormatrix bt2020nc --transfer smpte2084 --chromaloc 2 --master-display copy --max-cll copy -o N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\BL_shrunk.hevc


3. Then use mp4muxer to mux the BL, EL and audio to a mp4 file. The command is:

mp4muxer_64bits.exe --dv-profile 4 -i N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\BL_shrunk.hevc -i N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\EL.hevc -i N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\audio.ac3 --media-lang eng -o N:\BIRDS_OF_PREY\TEMP_FOLDER\Birds.of.Prey.(2020).2160p.UHDRip.(Dolby.Vision).HEVC.AC3.mp4


This should give you a re-encoded mp4 that is DV 04.06 with AC3 audio.

Here is the link for the Birds of Prey sample I created. It is DV 04.06 with ac3 audio.

Did anyone try this method of shrinking the BL and running in through yusetool?

it plays both mp4 and ts dual-layer profile 7 DV. But with Atmos + subs, only in a TS container.
it works via the network but not so well, thanks to the slow 100mbps ethernet port. No plex app, unfortunately.
the only downside is the bug that won't let you play 2 movies/files without having to reboot the player.

OSD says Dolby Vision HDR for real DV.
OSD says HDR only for fake DV.

I also made some screenshot comparison with the disc the mp4 and the ts... all identicals
Please forgive my weak English.

Nice, thanks for quick answer.
If not plex then what does it support? SMB? DLNA?
Ye i read about the 100mbps ethernet, in 2020... dont know what to say.
Probably better to use wifi then

Thats just it, i cant get it working.
Im running yusetool after shrinking the BL, which goes to 100% but the window remains open and i never get the "finished prompt".
When running mp4muxer after that, it never finishes for hours :/

Oh, then maybe there's something about the re-encoded file that yusecope's tool doesn't like. Can your device play profile 4? If so, then his tool is not needed.

It can play profile 4 ye, 2019 shield, its needed though because otherwise its dual-layer which shield cant play?

if kodi can play a profile 7 dolby vision, there's no reason it wont be able to play with menus, at least if it on a device that can run java. In this case, as an android device, it isn't a likely target (though I've been off and on investigating how to run a jvm on android for kodi to use). With that said, menus for UHDs are mostly pointless, as the vast majority of UHDs are movie only punting all the extras to the regular bluray disk (there are exceptions, but they prove the rule)
What was the conclusion of Ugoos AM6 Plus concerning DV playback?
And is there a thread or information about wether kodi19 is gonna support more then profile 5?

Sigh why doesn't dolby just release their own media player on pc that supports dolby vision and dolby atmos? They already got some form of that in their dolby access app, but that thing only plays some demo instead of any video files.

It's my first go today at doing this - I've made the MP4 but it isn't recognised by my LG E6 OLED when trying to play with a USB drive into the USB3 port. It looks like it tries to load (disk access light is flashing) but I just get the LG loading symbol and after a few minutes the error 'file cannot be played'. On the Shield TV it plays but as HDR which is normal I guess for profile 7.

I'd really just like a way to get DV playback from UHDs on my Shield TV ideally, but as I understand that's not possible with dual stream MP4 .If anything has changed I'd love to know. I've read through the threads but there is a lot of information and easy to miss developments.

I used the following command for mp4muxer - have I done something wrong? Does the version of tsMuxer matter to get the files from the BDMV backup I made in MakeMKV?

mp4muxer --dv-profile 7 --input-file base.hevc --input-file dv.hevc --input-file audio.ac3 --media-lang eng --output-file thematrix.mp4

because "pirates" and widows' implementation of HDR is abbysmal - which means app should be started with HDR on, in YCrCb4:2:0 (since movies use this) and display must support Dolby Vision

in bin folder use mp4muxer_64bits.exe
it works on my LG OLED
