Re: Thor 3 & Others - Skipping and Video Problems

I have never used an NAS before and I'm not sure what those are or how to operate them. Any information you have can help out. One thing I should tell you is the only reason I have those two 8TB external hard drives is because there was such a good sale I was able to purchase them for a low price. I...

Sound Error in LPCM of the movie Unbreakable

SUBJECT: Possible error in the 16-bit LPCM format of the Blu-ray movie called "Unbreakable." I bought Unbreakable and successfully converted it to MKV. I thought everything was fine. I then started watching the movie using MPC-BE. At 8 Minutes 30 Seconds into the movie, there is a "static crackling"...

Re: Ash vs Evil Dead: No Commentary Track

I just bought the Ash vs Evil Dead boxed set and experienced the exact same problem. Here is what I found. Each episode has 5 Chapters. Chapter #5 in each episode lasts about 2 Minutes 20 Seconds and is nothing but a black screen. This black screen doesn't even let you fast forward to watch it. This...

Re: Constant vs Variable Inconsistency with Handbrake

UPDATE: I found the answer. In Avengers Infinity War, I decided to do a test in Handbrake. As a result of this test, I found the answer to the problem. First, I did the movie in the MP4 format. As usual, I got this same "Variable" result for the frame rate, even though I had actually selected "Same ...

Constant vs Variable Inconsistency with Handbrake

I recently converted several of my Marvel Blu-rays such as Thor 2, Deadpool, and Deadpool 2 to MKV. Each of them ended up with the "Constant" framerate of 23.976, which is 100% fine. The problem is, each of those movies has "Subtitles" in them. So, I decided to use Handbrake to "Burn" the Subtitles ...

The Butterfly Effect - Which File Name is Correct?

I wanted to use MakeMKV on my copy of the blu-ray called The Butterfly Effect. ... But, there was a problem. There are four different versions of the Director's Cut version of The Butterfly Effect. There is only one version of the Theatrical Cut version of The Butterfly Effect. Does anyone know whic...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I have some interesting updates for you. First, I had to give up on trying to get MPC-BE and MadVR to display at 24 frames per second. I entered the resolutions of "1920x1080p24" and "1920x1080p23" but nothing would work. In Settings, Windows 10 would have the Desktop resolution at 1600x900,...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Hi, d00zah. I have some updates. I was able to download the Shark 007 codecs. I literally have to say I would not have been able to do so if you had not given such good instructions. That one website is nothing but a maze of advertisements. Unfortunately, the Shark 007 and MadVR additions did not ch...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Thank you, d00zah. This would explain why the movie Event Horizon could be played on MPC-BE in Dolby True HD without any audio dropouts - it uses Dolby TrueHD, but not Dolby Atmos. This would also explain why the movies such as Creed 2, The Nun, and Total Recall from 2012 had audio dropouts - they u...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I just thought I would mention this to you because it seems to have more to do with Dolby TrueHD than it does any one particular player. I turned the 2012 version of Total Recall into a MakeMKV. I tried watching the 2012 version of Total Recall with MPC-BE. Dolby TrueHD 5.1 is the default au...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I was able to get MadVR installed and set up so it appears in MPC-BE. ... However, I'm still having trouble with Shark 007 because of all those advertisements on that page. Any help with Shark 007 would be appreciated.

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

Hi, d00zah. Thank you for the advice. I am trying to download the Shark007 via the link you placed here. ... The problem is, I have no idea how. The entire website for Shark 007 is a group of advertisements - all of them say things such as "Download Here" and "Start Process Here" but they are nothin...

Re: Dolby True HD problems with Creed 2 and The Nun

Hi Grauhaar, Thank you for taking the time to write back and help. ... I should clarify a couple things. 1. When I mentioned that I was only using "two speakers" I was referring to when the 7.1 Dolby True HD was being watched directly on my laptop on the laptop screen. The only two speakers on the l...

Re: Choppy Framerate from HD-DVD in MKV at 29.97fps

d00zah, I think you are correct that the problem may be with MPC-BE. ... In the past this was difficult to confirm because no other players I have can play MKV files. However, today I downloaded VLC just to see what would happen. VLC "plays" MKV files and they look "choppy," so that is why I didn't ...

d00zah, it sounds like you know what you are talking about regarding technical things. I have another question for you. I recently ripped Creed 2 using MakeMKV. ... While watching Creed 2 on Blu-ray, the Dolby TrueHD sound was fine. ... And when I listened to the Dolby True HD on the two speakers of...
