Thanks for the replies.
Right now my blu-rays are around 45 GB each... converting to mkv will have the following advantages: less space (around 10GB less for each movie if not more), and the movie starts playing immediately instead of having to go through trailers, forbidden actions, menu and so on. I have around 300 blu-rays and that I think is a huge saving in space.
I've heard of madVR and will give it a try. Haven't heard of jinc3+AR.. what does it do? Also heard of LAV but again, I don't know what it does. if anyone could explain what these 2 do?
Also regarding subtitle... I am like you Sammy. I use both forced subs and the english for hearing impaired and i won't them both on at the same time and displayed when necessary.
So you are saying that MPC-HC does recognise the forced flag? So you just need to switch on the subtitle for english for hearing impaired and you will see both. And even with english for hearing impaired off, the forced sub would show?
What program should I buy to start ripping the blurays to mkv (my collection consists of both BD ISO and BDMV structure blurays)?
I also need to know about the refresh rate. Will MPC-HC recognise the refresh rate and change the graphics card refresh rate accordingly? I got a NVIDIA GTX 460 graphics card.
Cause right now TMT5 is stuttering like crazy (especially visible with subtitles on) and I can't stand it anymore, so need MPC-HC to be configured to not stutter.
