Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Does makemkv not show BL+FEL+RPU when opening the disk? Does the new mediainfo not detect dolby vision? No and no. And to doubly test it, I downloaded a full complete UHD copy and tried it with MKV and same result. I also tried on multiple computers all with the latest (registered) version of MakeM...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I have just purchased the UHD 4K of Terminator Dark Fate which supports Dolby Vision and indeed works on my UHD Panasonic Bluray player. However, when using MakeMKV to backup my disc, it refuses to copy across Dolby Vision. Plex will only ever play it in HDR. Is there something particular with this...

Re: Saving Private Ryan "light leak"

are you playing this in dolby vision and the nvidia shield? if so, there’s a known issue that this movie will flicker throughout. not sure if that’s what you’re referring to, but it’s well documented in the other threads.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Anyone managed to find ExoPlayer v2.12.0 (2020-09-11) the .apk file? If you are referring to the latest release build of exoplayer on github, then you are not going to find one. The project on github is an API used by other applications. The only apk that you can build out of it is a demo that can ...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

I have a worse problem than that 'red push'. I have the Shield Pro 2019 as well and the latest Plex installed. When I get DV playback on the Shield Pro / Plex, seems there are two ‘modes’. One is brighter than the other. And the dimmer one looks very dark. Not even HDR lvl, with Dynamic Tone Mappin...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Ok Guys, I have another question. I have the full UHD rips of the BTTF Trilogy ..... Any idea why i dont see 2 video? normally there are 2 video right? Is it a good rip/remux? I did not use any other tools. Check Plex player and Plex Server versions. Does Plex Server detect DoVi data? Check file in...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Now, as for DTX, I realise I can't convert it to TrueHD Atmos, but I am wondering whether I can convert it to TrueHD 7.1 (non ATMOS). Likewise for DTS-MA 7.1 to True HD 7.1. That's what I am looking at now. Like I said, you can't. The best you can do is the experimental ffmpeg truehd encoder which ...

Re: Update 1.15.1 creating larger file sizes with HDR10 discs?

Thanks for the reply. To clarify, I would not see this same level of difference on standard HDR10 discs that I've ripped in say July 2019? Meaning, it's not a software/firmware shift in producing larger/full file size rips....but this is more directly tied to the DV layer on said discs. Thanks agai...

Re: Update 1.15.1 creating larger file sizes with HDR10 discs?

Hi there, I was going back and re-ripping some discs to enable Dolby Vision on my older HDR10 only MKV rips. I began noticing a 3-5GB file size difference from my previous HDR10 only rips that I had done a 6mo - 1yr ago. Is anyone else noticing this sort of difference on their MKVs? I didn't realiz...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Fair enough. I do know I can support True HD 5.1 (better than E-AC3). However, I tried to extract the True HD 5.1 from a DTS X, and when I tried to play it back I got silence on my Sonos ARC. I do know True HD 5.1 works as I have other titles where it definitely works. The sound profile on ones tha...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Yeah, it definitely supports TrueHD. I often play content with TrueHD 7.1 and TrueHD 5.1 but someone else has encoded it. In fact, it supports up to TrueHD 7.1 which got me thinking. I should transfer DTS-X to TrueHD 7.1 and DTS-HD to TrueHD 5.1. Have you got a command for me to try that? Also, are...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Are these libraries still needed? I forgot to save them and the link is already dead. I'm just asking because for some reason I've encountered 4 movies (War of the Worlds, Terminator Genisys, Terminator Dark Fate, Valerian) in a row that were unplayable on LG C8 and M9702 after converted to MEL. I ...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Using a Shield Pro 2019 and Plex, I have so far only been able to get DV playback from MEL content. Is this the best I can do at the moment with this setup? No FEL playback? The 2019 Shield has no issues playing back FEL and MEL content. Whether or not it's doing it properly is a whole another disc...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Hi, I have lot of MKVs that I made in the past with MKVToolnix keeping Dolby Vision layer as a second track (in the hope it could be handled some day), I've tried with the latest version of MakeMKV but it doesn't recognize it, any ideas? You should just be able to open that .mkv in 1.15.3 let MakeM...
