MKV titles considered as M2TS

Post by myisland » Tue Jan 16, 2018 12:12 am

Streaming using Plex server, my Sony S5100 Blu-ray player accessing Plex is not playing some MKV titles which Plex lists as a M2TS file. The files are .mkv and play locally on the PC but I need to play them via the Blu-ray player. Why would a MKV file be mistaken for M2TS?

It is possible that the Plex profile for that device requires conversion of MKV to m2ts. Remember that a feature of Plex is on-the-fly conversions for compatibility.

Have you checked on the Plex forums?

All files were created using makemkv. All files have mkv extensions. Plex lists some as MKV and some as M2TS. The M2TS won't play. I don't think that the Sony Blu-ray player supports M2TS. Could newer version of makemkv have introduced a bug?

Bluray players better be able to handle m2ts, because that's what they find on BDs!

I have seen no examples of MakeMKV creating m2ts files unless you request a "backup", in which case the files WILL be a mix of play lists and transport stream files, with no MKV files.
