Re: Enabling MKV subtitles in LG webos video player

Alternatively use Notepad++ to convert between encoding types. While I think it's a bit of overkill in the context of this experiment, I've seen it recommended numerous times over the years but never got around to trying it. Now that I have, I'm kicking myself for dragging my feet. All the nifty fe...

Re: Why People Complain About Registration Key Not Working

Although the general air of entitlement in these cases kinda bugs me, it's really the unwillingness of anyone to use search to see if this has ever happened before that sticks in my craw. It's not like there aren't hundreds (understated, yes) of examples... and every 2 months there are MANY more suc...

Re: Enabling MKV subtitles in LG webos video player

@ibtrue, after reading endless (OK, not quite) discussions on WebOS-related fora, character encoding is often discussed as the possible culprit, but no one ever seems to report back on success/failure... the threads just die. Rather than uploading a copy of the .srt file, please try this (I'm assumi...

Re: Enabling MKV subtitles in LG webos video player

Hi d00zah, I was successful with adding the srt subtitles to the MKV files. Played fine in VLC but when I tried to play in my lg projector, the SUB button is still grayed out and there’s no way to add the subtitle like you have to do in VLC. It not being recognized. The lg website says this: For su...

Re: I canceled mid-backup and now I'm locked out.

In the interim, Woodstock often recommends setting the system clock back a few days in order to use MakeMKV while waiting for the new key. It's worth a shot & would confirm the speculation that your issue is due to key expiration.

Re: I canceled mid-backup and now I'm locked out.

The ~ early expiration also happens every ~2 months. "... until the end of..." has never been a precise event & July 30, 2018 does, in fact, qualify as the 'end of July, 2018'. Others have begun reporting it, as well.

I suspect that when the new key is issued,your problem will resolve itself.

Re: I canceled mid-backup and now I'm locked out.

This happens every ~2 months (like clockwork). MakeMKV is released with the current beta key embedded, & it lets you know when the key expires. This isn't a free tool, just one that the dev is kind enough to make available 'while in beta'. The current beta key is always found here: http://www.makemk...

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

I got it working !!! Shark codecs> recommended settings > DXVA2- copy back > auto change to full screen in MPC-BE> 24hz refresh rate on desktop resolution. That did the trick. I have found that I can handle 24fps content like a dream however 60fps HDR content is choppy. Still I'm happy with the res...

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Poked around in the Shark007 64-bit settings app (in my case)...

- Navigate to the 'H264/5' tab & select 'Use LAV H264/5' & the 'Configuration' radio
button.

- Select 'NVIDIA CUVID' from the Hardware Acceleration pull-down & check all the relevant boxes.

- Retest.

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Sorry for not having any 1st-hand experience but others have gone through this. Here are some sample results I found. Apparently, getting HW acceleration configured helps (CUVID for Nvidia GPUs).

Re: Hashed Keys don´t work. Makemkv only works with AnydvdHD

You say " I copied them as in the instructions in the Makemkv folder"...

You should be placing the 'keys_hashed.txt' file in the 'MakeMKV data directory' defined under Preferences > General.

Unlike the main program directory, the contents of this directory survive program updates.

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

Not willing to pop for the necessary NAS space ATM, so aside from getting 'my ducks in a row' & reading everything I can find, UHD remains a thought experiment at present.

Re: Can you get HDR on windows 7 4K UHD MKV playback ?

IF you got the version that includes madVR, just make sure it's selected as the renderer in the MPC-BE video options... MPC-BE_madVR (Small).jpg madVR settings should have a start menu shortcut after install. Other than that, herr Shark contends it's preconfigured. I suggest wandering thru config op...
