If there is a need for a quick overview of devices capable of handling the playback of MakeMKV's UHD BD Rips, this is an attempt to create one:


  • Code: Select all

    Fabricator	Model		Device type	FW / OS-Version		SW / App	SW-Version		video playback	HDR handling	24p video mode	audio: TrueHD	DTS-HD MA	AC3	dts		subtitles	submitter
    
    Microsoft	Xbox One S	game console	v10.0.17763.4088	Media Player	v2.6.425.0		OK		OK		NO, 60p			FAIL	FAIL		OK	FAIL		FAIL
    Microsoft	Xbox One S	game console	v10.0.17763.4088	Film & TV	v10.19021.1041.70	OK		OK		NO, 60p			FAIL	FAIL		OK	FAIL		OK
    Microsoft	Xbox One S	game console	v10.0.17763.4088	VLC		v3.1.0.70		FAIL		-		-			OK	FAIL		OK	OK		FAIL
    
    Panasonic	DMP-UB314	disc player	v1.80			-		-			OK		OK		NO, 60p			FAIL	FAIL		OK	OK
    
    Dune HD		Pro 4K		set-top box	Android 7.01		?		?			OK		OK		YES, 24p		OK	OK		OK	OK				spl147
    NVIDIA		Shield (TV/Pro)	set-top box	Android 8.x		Kodi		18.1			OK		OK		YES, 24p		OK	OK		OK	OK		?		spl147
    MINIX		NEO U9-H	set-top box	Android 7.1.1		Kodi		18.1			OK		OK		YES, 24p		OK	OK		OK	OK		?		Grencola

Additional categories like subtitle support or chapter recognition could be added.
Looking forward to add all sort of devices like smartphones and tablets with MHL, SlimPort or USB-C [alternate modes] support.

One last thing: let's just leave PCs out of it, at least for now or until the Playstation (Pro) catches up ;-).

Why are we leaving PC's out of the discussion ? The list for an HTPC is pretty short:

HTPC: Does everything ? A: Yes

:D

As far as MKV playback that is. It's kind of funny that PC's have falled off the grid when it comes to streaming. It's really a platform that COULD do everything (streaming wise) if only the streaming services/Windows would give it some love. Because it lacks in the streaming area I have a Roku Ultra (4K) for all the other stuff.

yippie yi yo ... the list is growing

Because the variations are sheer endless: starting with the correct GPU, the os, the os patch level, the driver, the optimal driver settings, the playback software, the sw accelerated mode, the signal connection (HDMI, DP), the monitor etc.

Let's focus on uniformed environments, on which people can easily reproduce the playback capability.

MY bets are on Raspberry Pi 5 or 6 with a full 4K HEVC HDR decoding capability (hopefully) :roll: .


Last but not least, where are the smartphone nerds? A fairly recent Snapdragon, Android 8.x and a USB-C to HDMI adapter cable should do the job.
