Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Hello Alpha and Omega testers! :lol: :lol: New day, new apk ( HERE )! This time the focus is completely shifted to the audio sector. This version therefore DOES NOT INCLUDE the code to play DV movies. Two main points: maybe I have found a way to distinguish DTS audio from DTS HD audio within an mkv ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Hello people! After mike published some test files ( HERE ) I was pointed out that the file with profile 8 was not playing correctly. My mistake: I had forgotten to implement a version of DV used for files with profile >7. This apk should work around the problem (uninstall the current Exoplayer firs...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

@yusesope In some movies some audio tracks are greyed out even if they are part of the mkv. Examples: Trolls World Tour (english) atmos 7.1 and ac3 5.1 The deer hunter all tracks (dts hd master stereo english and italian) Jaws italian ac3 5.1 Midway dts hd master 5.1 (english and italian) and so on...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Exopleyer has no samba library. I didn't add it. It means that Kodi performs the smb -> http conversion or mounts samba share directly on the device. Good to know. I don't understand then what the problem is that ragico is encountering The SHIELD itself mounts the SMB share and makes it available t...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Make sure you use the DLNA protocol and not Samba (for Samba you need an application that do the smb -> http conversion). Read the posts (and related discussion) that I reported earlier in my previous message. I actually mounted my NAS onto my Shield through smb and that's where all my test files a...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

That was with Kodi 18.7.1 on a Firestick 4K, DLNA for the file. LG C8 for the TV. All DV files produced by MakeMKV are dvhe.07. Firestick cannot play this type of file "Playback failed" on screen message. Make sure you use the DLNA protocol and not Samba (for Samba you need an application that do t...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Patience. I'm pretty sure yusesope is planning on releasing an exoplayer apk once the code is cleaned up. I didn't realize that you guys were still interested in my apk (given the pull request already present on the exoplayer github page). If you want I can upload the apk tomorrow (because I'm not ...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Looks like somebody might've beaten yusecope to the punch: https://github.com/google/ExoPlayer/pull/7667 I was able to build an apk out of this pull request and it does seem to be working as far triggering DV on the 2019 Shield goes for 1.15.2 mkvs. Pretty good news overall that things are progress...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Hello beautiful people! Just a small update: I revised my code (Exoplayer) after the release of version 1.15.2. @shawnc22 has just tested (on the new Shield) an apk that i have prepared. The mkv test file is played correctly and Dolby Vision is successfully triggered. In the next few days I will rel...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

... Hello, i quoted you on a random post to "ping you", i was wondering, can you see a reason why i cannot encode/shrink the BL only and then try to use -mode2 with your tool? It goes to 100% but i get no prompt like "enter to finish", and when i later try to mp4muxer it all together, it just stand...

Exactly. Too bad steffen has scared him and no one else gets to try this out.
Come on!
"Scared" :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

However, I hope you find out about how to implement frame change.
The Amazon code looks really well done.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

I meant with your mods so it works with MKVs with DV haha! Do you want me dead :lol: :lol: :lol: ? For tonight I finished sharing :) But I will give you one last gift for your future project! I started taking a look at the code that you find here: https://developer.amazon.com/it/docs/fire-tv/4k-api...
