Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

Hello everyone, newbie here. When I play the new DV MKVs by 1.15.3 with the Shield, there's inconsistency. Sometimes it is direct playing DV and lossless Atmos / DTS:X fine, sometimes it is transcoding. And it gets worse -- when I play a DV file then switch to an HDR one then back to a DV file, it ...

Usually works with or without Libredrive but there are some rare cases that it does not mostly for DVDs I believe
Thank you. I'll only be importing Blurays. I'm not buying DVDs these days.

Region Coding

Does Libredrive enable reading and ripping of region codes A, B and C for normal Blurays?

Or this fuctionality part of MakeMKV anyway and nothing to do with Libredrive?

I have never tried ripping anything outside of my region (B) so am curious to know before importing some region A discs.

TIA.

Plex Server (1.20.3.3401) can detect DV in mkv files
Re-Analyze file to get this info

Thanks for this. I had rescanned my library but not analysed the individual files. I see the DV metadata now.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Further testing gave me and unknown HDR mode with a red tint - this happened for both Top Gun and Gladiator but not Universal Soldier. Were you streaming from a Shield? That's also a known problem, but with the Shield itself, unrelated to Plex. They're working on that and there's a hotfix available...

Re: GetMPLS - An Application to help find the correct playlist for BD / UHD

I've only just come across this thread and app. It looks handy, not that I have really had too many issues with playlist obfuscation so far, but my first thought would be to integrate its functionality into MakeMKV. Or is that already happening?

Re: Ultimate UHD Drives Guide Updated 2020

All the versions of this drive are slim. I have a workstation (tower PC) that I think will be difficult to install. How difficult would it be to install? Also, after I buy this drive what should I flash it with? Is there a tutorial on doing this? I'm using an LG BH16NS55. This has worked well for m...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I follow the information in this (and other threads) but I have neither the time nor the skill to undertake what is required so I'm happy to wait for native support to arrive in Plex for my Shield TV Pro.

OT: do native English speakers understand me when I say film instead of movie?
Perfectly, since the word is 'film' not 'movie' for a native English speaker :D.
