Ah that does seem like a plausible explanation. I personally have never gotten profile 7 files to work on my B9, but people previously in this thread have reported that dual track dual layer profile 7 mp4 remuxes made with mp4muxer play without issue on their LG C# internal players. If anyone with a C# TV can try a mp4 prof7 remux of an FEL movie, that would be helpful.
I just watched Knives Out which is FEL on the LG C8.
This was Profile 7 with DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio.

Zero issues.
Could you please share the commands you've used to create these profile 7 muxes?

Now some testing using an usb disk on my C8.

For Gemini Man 2019 (FEL/HFR), I have:

bl.hevc (base layer)
el.hevc (enhanced layer)
gemini_mode1.hevc (created with yusesope's tool BL+EL+RPU)
gemini_mode2.hevc (created with yusesope's tool BL+RPU)
gemini_thd.ac3 (TrueHD + Core AC3 audio)
gemini.ec3 (Dolby Digital Plus audio)

The first one I created was single layer profile 04 using gemini_mode1.hevc and gemini.ec3:

Code: Select all

# Create profile 04 mux with mp4muxer
mp4muxer -i gemini_mode1.hevc --dv-profile 4 -o gemini_sl_04.mp4
# Add E-AC3 audio with mp4box
MP4Box -add ./gemini_sl_04.mp4:rate=0 -add ./gemini.ec3#audio:lang=en-EN -tmp /home/mastag -brand mp42isom -ab dby1 -no-iod gemini_sl_04_audio.mp4
Result:

This one stutters, which was expected.
I'm not going to hex-edit it to profile 06, since @shawnc22 already tried that.


Second try single layer but this time profile 07 using gemini_mode1.hevc and gemini.ec3:

Code: Select all

# Create profile 07 mux with mp4muxer
mp4muxer -i gemini_mode1.hevc --dv-profile 7 -o gemini_sl_07.mp4
# Add E-AC3 audio with mp4box

This one also stutters, like profile 04, so more proof that profiles don't make a difference.
I think that the "mode 1" (BL+EL+RPU) merges of movies with a "FEL" are either not fully compatible with LG televisions (as they do play on the Shield).
Or the LG televisions are simply not powerful enough to process these FEL movies.


Now here comes the thing I don't understand.
I've tried to create an old fashioned profile 07 dual layer mp4 mux using bl.hevc, el.hevc and gemini.ec3:

Code: Select all

# Create profile 07 mux with mp4muxer
mp4muxer -i bl.hevc -i el.hevc --dv-profile 7 -o gemini_dl_07.mp4
# Add E-AC3 audio with mp4box
MP4Box -add ./gemini_dl_07.mp4:rate=0 -add ./gemini.ec3#audio:lang=en-EN -tmp /home/mastag -brand mp42isom -ab dby1 -no-iod gemini_dl_07_audio.mp4

Now I've seen multiple members claiming this works for them.
Dual track FEL movies created with mp4muxer.
But for me it does not play at all.. all I get is a black screen and a spinner, both in Emby and from usb disk using the builtin mediaplayer.
Something wrong with the above steps or commands?
Any help would be nice :)


Now just for fun I created a TS movie using gemini_mode2.hevc, gemini_thd.ac3 and gemini.ec3.
I used TsMuxer compiled with jcdr428's PR: https://github.com/justdan96/tsMuxer/pull/269 (but without the last commit where he fixes the compatibility ID).
So this is BL+RPU with both TrueHD+Core-AC3 and E-AC3 audio.

This one without the FEL layer works perfectly fine as expected.
Of course I cannot play Atmos on my C8, but DD+ is better than nothing.

Now here comes the thing I don't understand.
I've tried to create an old fashioned profile 07 dual layer mp4 mux using bl.hevc, el.hevc and gemini.ec3:

Code: Select all

# Create profile 07 mux with mp4muxer
mp4muxer -i bl.hevc -i el.hevc --dv-profile 7 -o gemini_dl_07.mp4
# Add E-AC3 audio with mp4box
MP4Box -add ./gemini_dl_07.mp4:rate=0 -add ./gemini.ec3#audio:lang=en-EN -tmp /home/mastag -brand mp42isom -ab dby1 -no-iod gemini_dl_07_audio.mp4

Now I've seen multiple members claiming this works for them.
Dual track FEL movies created with mp4muxer.
But for me it does not play at all.. all I get is a black screen and a spinner, both in Emby and from usb disk using the builtin mediaplayer.
Something wrong with the above steps or commands?
Any help would be nice :)
I have also never gotten this method to work for any titles on my B9. I figured it was just because of the inferior processor on the B series, resulting in a lack of hardware support to decode dual track files. In your case, I wonder if it's the 60fps that's causing the problem. Have you tried a different FEL title with regular 24fps?

Ah that does seem like a plausible explanation. I personally have never gotten profile 7 files to work on my B9, but people previously in this thread have reported that dual track dual layer profile 7 mp4 remuxes made with mp4muxer play without issue on their LG C# internal players. If anyone with a C# TV can try a mp4 prof7 remux of an FEL movie, that would be helpful.
I just watched Knives Out which is FEL on the LG C8.
This was Profile 7 with DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio.

Zero issues.
Could you please share the commands you've used to create these profile 7 muxes?

Sure.
Demux BL & EL using eac3to

Use mp4muxer with the profile 7 tag
mp4muxer_64bits.exe --dv-profile 7 --input-file BL.hevc --input-file EL.hevc --media-lang eng --output-file nameofmovie.mp4

I create DTS-HD MA 7.1 audio using the Atmos track (using DTS-HD Audio Suite) which I then run through mkvtoolnix to make an .mka file.
Then use this command to make it a .mp4
ffmpeg.exe -i path\to\file\audio.mka -map 0:0 -c copy path\to\file\audio.mp4

then I use mp4box to bring it all together.
mp4box.exe -add %userprofile%\Desktop\work\movie.mp4:rate=0 -add %userprofile%\Desktop\work\movieaudio.mp4:disable -brand mp42isom -ab dby1 -no-iod %userprofile%\Desktop\work\output.mp4

This produces a .mp4 Profile 7 with HD Audio (not Atmos) DTS-HD MA 7.1

Plays flawless on the C8 (of course it only uses the core dts track) but sounds fine with my setup.

**If you just want the core audio that is .ac3 just do this.
mp4muxer_64bits.exe --dv-profile 7 --input-file BL.hevc --input-file EL.hevc --input-file audio.ac3 --media-lang eng --output-file nameofmovie.mp4

Thank you. Where can I get the all the tools and other useful commands?

Extract BL EL (try without audio first)

Code: Select all

ffmpeg.exe -i F:\BDMV\STREAM\00058.m2ts -map 0:0 -c copy BL.hevc -map 0:1 -c copy EL.hevc
mux the mp4 video profile 7

Code: Select all

mp4muxer_64bits.exe --dv-profile 7 --input-file BL.hevc --input-file EL.hevc --output-file mp4_dv.mp4
Play mp4_dv.mp4 on the LG player (by usb or dlna) and see if it works.

some FEL movies i made:
Terminator 6
Hunter Killer
Watchmen
Fast & Furious - Hobbs & Shaw
Aquaman
John Wick - Chapitre 3
Fast & Furious 8
Mission Impossible 1-2-3-4-5-6
Jurassic World 2 - Fallen Kingdom
Gladiator
Transformers 1-2-3-4-5

note: Geminy Man DV track is MEL (3%) and can't be play in DV on LG without stutter.

Dual track dual layer profile 7 mp4 remuxes made with mp4muxer play without any problem on internal player of my c7, c8 and now c9. Except Gemini Man. Still can’t figure out a way to play it smoothly at correct 60fps. The hdr10 version plays fine but not the dolby vision version.

My mp4 mux of Gemini man with ac3 audio has always played fine on my C9 via internal Plex app, Plex server is hosted on shield 2019 pro on same local network.
You need to turn of all internal processing on your TV for DV 60fps.

I'll try to disable processing on my TV then.
To be honest I never changed a single thing apart from the OLED brightness, since it's far too bright when watching TV at night.

Maybe Plex or Shield can handle Gemini man but the tv’s internal player can’t. I turned everything off but it never looks like true 60 fps.

My personal opinion of 60fps is why????
I sat watching the film and turned it off, it just looked like ‘soap opera’ it was just too smooth and TV like.

Has anyone had success creating a DV MP4 from a remuxed .mkv? I demux the video streams and AC3 audio from the .mkv, put it through mp4muxer, and it runs fine. However, on my TV, it's just a black screen. The raw .m2ts, however, will work fine. Any ideas?

I make DV MP4 from remuxed .mkv all the time and it works fine on my c9. I no longer use the .m2ts structure because for some films the main video is split into multiple files.
