Unhappy Ripping/Playback woes, MKV at 24p...

I'm about to give up on ripping my Blu-rays to server and just saying screw it and relying on disc playback. It seems every combination of format/playback hardware has some flaw preventing it from working. I've tried using a WDTV Live and an HTPC running XBMC.


WDTV Live - Doesn't support forced subtitle flag, won't display any subtitle tracks other than the first one if multiple are present.


XBMC - Supports forced subtitles, works pretty good, but requires a PC.


Here's where my problems grow:


MKV playback at 24p has lip sync problems. Any MKV I play at 24p does this. It does the same thing on WDTV as it does on XBMC. Playing them at 60p results in no lip sync problems. Remuxing the MKV files to M2TS resolves this problem. I can play M2TS files at 24p without any lip sync problem on both platforms.


Next problem? There doesn't seem to be a way to set the forced flag for subtitles in M2TS files. I can set it in an MKV file using MKVMerge but if I remux to M2TS it goes away.


I just can't find that 'perfect' solution that works for everything - 24p, forced subtitles. How exactly do people do it?

Personally MKV+PC. Lip sync problem of MKVs created with MakeMKV is discussed in this thread. I haven't seen this problem, however. Using eac3to may be a solution (BluRip is a nice front end of eac3to/mkvmerge, that handles forced subtitles properly).

I use MakeMKV and Media Browser Theater and Server and never have had synch issues. Never had a problem with force subs on this set up either.

Same here, but I also use the Media Browser Classic client as well as MPC-HC as an external player to MB Classic/WMC and haven't had those issues.
