Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

All you need for Atmos is the "TrueHD" and the "DD" underneath it. Dolby Vision is kept by default, nothing you need to select or de-select. Also, if all you want is Dolby Atmos, instead of both Atmos and DTS, deselect the "DTS" tracks for a smaller file. thanks, pardon me for being a noob but just ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

What's a recommended app for side loading APK's onto the Nvidia Shield TV, so I can run exoplayer under Kodi and watch my DV MKVs?

Re: Best media player for Nvidia Shield TV (2019)

MrMC is a good Kodi variant.

Koying, of the SPMC Kodia variant fame, handles the android/Nvidia Shield TV versions.

Re: Catalina and Makemkv

Well, I did a upgraded a spare HD I have as a test. Makemkv was able to decrypt the TOC of a UHD disk and list out all the tracts to extract. so.. it seems to work. I didn't go as far as ripping anything to storage though.

OSX says it's a 64 bit kernel extension, but unsigned. wonder what's different about Catalina that would interfere? Kernel extensions have been depreciated, but they should still work...

Catalina and Makemkv

So, I'd really like to upgrade to OSX Catalina, but would rather not lose the ability to backup my UHD/Bluray media.

Can anyone confirm that Makemkv can rip UHD/Bluray disks running under Catalina?

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Is it really creating a single layer DV from the dual layer DV track? If that is the case, the code for doing this available for anyone to use. Could be added into Makemkv, an option to create a single layer DV track. I don't really think it's doing that. The command line options seem to imply there...

Re: WANTED: Results of UHD Rips with Dolby Vision

That 1920x1080 'HDR' layer is the Dolby Vision Metadata. I don't know why folks say MKV doesn't support a separate DV track alongside the HDR track. I've taken a full disk rip (of my legally purchased Valerian UHD), and used MKVtoolnix to mux the HDR and DV tracks from the main .M2TS file together i...

No SCSI errors here with Mojave, just a nice errorless copy.

Re: WANTED: Results of UHD Rips with Dolby Vision

Dolby might be lessening their restrictions on requiring specific hardware to decode their proprietary HDR. This should pave the way for media players based on the Nvidia Shield Tv, Apple Tv, and others to merge the video tracks into the proper format for presentation. This article is dated Feb 2017...

Re: Hasked Key silently updated

That's not the newest update. 1.12.3 is downloading a copy and putting it either in a different location, different file format, or both. If I had to guess, it's now part of '_private_data.tar' which appeared to be the only new file in my MakeMKV data directory. This new location/format is incompati...

Re: G.I Joe Rise of the Cobra & Retaliation

I had same issue with Cars 3 UHD. 12.2.3 failed with a hash check error on an ASUS drive, and a LG drive. Reverting back to 12.2.2 and it ripped fine with no errors.

Re: MakeMKV to Handbrake for 4K (UHD)???

Some of us who have paid for these UHD disks want the video quality we paid for, so the movies don't get run through Handbrake and degraded to lower quality video. If you are going to do HEVC encoding you'll need hardware support to accomplish it. Thank you for your reply. I know it isn't a Handbrak...

Re: UHD playback on new VLC 3.0

Ironically my mac pro 2013 is playing back 24fps UHD movies with no frame skipping at all, but brand new imacs with hardware support built into the Intel chips are skipping frames.

This is loads better than VLC 2.0. I couldn't play UHD disks at all.
