Well then, *if* what Oppo-203 is reporting is true, what makes DV's native 12-bit into 10-bit in the process? After all, optimal muxing is about not touching quality but retaining pristine original bit for bit data.
*If* Oppo-203's reporting is false, then any other way to verify integrity of DV's native quality ?
No need for an apology. However, your misunderstanding goes a few posts above before I mentioned anything about MP4 being borked. It started with your panel nonsense.
I've been with AVS Forum since 2002. I can't seem to find threads/posts related to this DV MP4 mux. Can you provide a link?Grencola wrote: ↑Fri May 24, 2019 3:46 ambut I have read on avsforum of people saying the same thing with 12-bit content showing up as 10-bit, while others replying not to worry as there's no difference, citing links to various tests etc. (basically where I got my influences from heh). Anyway regardless of all that, I've only tried with Vizio's p65 and m65 (usb) and LG's C8 (plex) displays so I'm definitely not the best person to be determining what's really going on. I'll try and find the forum link so you can talk to people with more experience.
That being said, people claiming no differences between native 12-bit DV disc and degraded(?) 10-bit (if true) MP4 files are irrelevant. After all, there are many, many, many people who cannot tell the difference between 128kbps mp3s and redbook CDs.
I think important points to consider are:
1. To investigate and find out *if* DV is really degraded from its native 12-bit into 10-bit during the muxing process.
2. The root cause of color depth change in the muxing process.
Some food for thoughts.
