@Yusesope
Your new file plays correctly in firestick, ugoos am6plus and shield.
In sony x700, via usb, it does not start and the counter stays at 000.

Thanks for the tests
The .pgs subtitles works with exoplayer and firestick?

@yusesope maybe this method never work with x700 because is an "official player" I don't know

In the mp4 files I did not add subtitles so don't know if they are displayed in firestick.
In the DV Mkv played in shield/ugoos am6plus via kodi/exoplayer, the pgs subs work and are displayed correctly.

But normally, does the x700 play mp4 obtained with my tool (Single Track Double Layer)?

Could you please try to extract the hevc video stream from this latter mp4 file, demux it using my "DEMUX.bat", import the two bl.hevc (as first) and el_rpu.hevc (as second) into TsMuxeR and create a m2ts file to try on the Sony?

Thank you!

Thr m2ts file plays in sony x700 via usb.
Dolby vision is triggered a couple of seconds after the play starts.
There is some heavy flickering here and there.

If I use FEL -> MEL then the resulting file size is the same as without that conversion. Is that right?
Normally MEL EL-file sizes are much lower.

Parameter -mode 2 doesn't delete EL data. Getting not a file BL+RPU.hevc, only BL+EL+RPU.hevc with similar size.

I'm using profile 5 on Windows 10 using mp4muxer. Only this works.

EDIT: Done!
But you didn't let us know if it works on LG or not :lol: .
A little tip: if you don't need to make cuts, you can extract video and audio with a single command

Code: Select all

ffmpeg.exe -i \path\to\file -map 0:0 -c copy \path\to\BL.hevc -map 0:1 -c copy \path\to\EL.hevc -map 0:XXX -bsf:a truehd_core -c:a copy \path\to\AUDIO.ac3
Clearly replace "XXX" with the correct TrueHD (with ac3 core) audio stream id
Didn't knew, ffmpeg could also extract the core ac3 from truehd.
Thanks for that mate :)

Unfortunately the Gemini Man movie still lags very hard, like the TV has trouble decoding it somehow.
So it doesn't have anything to do with MEL or FEL.
I guess it simply cannot handle 60fps DV.

yes, MEL Single Track Double Layer made with your tool plays on the x700... but not the FEL ones and not the converted MEL ones.
Please forgive my weak English.

I’ll try and test over the weekend :D
Let us know!
Tested, didn’t have any problems with the .bat files with the added libraries. I used the MI6 bathroom scene that’s been floating around here (recut from my own disc). Seems to have worked fine.

I only have an LG cx and shield to test with at the moment. LG TV didn’t seem to like the file, not sure if that’s expected, I’ve never really tried that hard to get it to play files due to the audio limitations.

The shield played the file. I can’t tell if the colour issue is still there though, I was struggling to see the red push on both the MEL mp4 and the FEL mkv. I don’t think the intention of this experiment was to ‘fix’ any of that? This was more for other devices, e.g. firestick?
