Oppo BDP-83/93/95/103/105 DLNA/UPnP thread - Page 64

post #1891 of 2522
Re-reading 63 pages....
Finally able to get 5.0 channel DTS wav to play in Foobar by renaming extension to .dtswav. Who knew?
Thanks to Bubbleguuum for this info.

I am a newbie here and have been reading this thread. I would like to setup my BDP-83 to view my media collection over DLNA. I was wondering is there a recommended Router I should purchase. Also, is it possible to use an interface like XBMC or Plex to view my media when I have everything set up?

We are in the process or obtaining older Foobar2000 clients and foo_upnp components to ensure that the errors were not caused by an update by Foobar2000, as previously all of our players supported 24-bit LPCM over the network."

Any update on this?

What was the name of the new free software alternative to DVDFab? I looked through this thread a couple of times and couldn't find where someone had posted the link.

Looking for BluRay and DVD ripping to ISO for playback from USB connected hard drive on BDP-93.

Thanks!

There's nothing "free" AFAIK for decrypting BD discs. Many folks are using AnyDVD-HD.

Clown_BD is free, but doesn't decrypt.

Thanks - mainly looking to extract the dts hd ma music track from BR and the dts music tracks from regular dvd's.

For instance, I have Tom Petty's Damn The Torpedoes on BR in DTS HD MA that I want to stream via my Oppo. And I have a ton of DTS 20 bit regular DVD music discs that I want to do the same with.

Suggestions?

Thanks.

If it's not encrypted try eac3toHD-DVD/Blu-Ray Stream Extractor.

Pardon my denseness but how do I tell if it is encrypted (lift up its skirt)?

All (99.9%) commercial Blu-ray and DVDs are encrypted. Many tools will work with the contents after they are decrypted, but the tools that will do that for Blu-ray are: AnyDVD HD and DVDFab. They are not free.

OK Thanks.

I thought I remembered someone posting about a free one a few weeks back. It was posted as an alternative to DVDFab. I couldn't find the post and it sounds like no one else has heard of it either so I must have dreamed about it.

As Roseanne, Rosanna Danna said........"Nevermind".
post #1901 of 2522
DVDFab has a free version in addition to their pay version.

Look here.

How does it differ from the pay version? What are its limitations? Will it create an ISO?

Thanks.

DVDFab is probably the best way to go if the disc is encrypted.

AudioMuxer is free and will extract audio from a non-encrypted Blu ray or DVD video.
You can find it as well as a user guide at surroundbyus.com.
AudioMuxer can also be used to create audio DVD's or AVCHD's, and several other audio related functions.
Mostly a front end for several freeware programs it does require Net framework version 4 installed.

Thanks for everyone's help. I'm using DVDFab and it works fine.

Now, how do I rip my mulitichannel DTS CD's so they can be streamed via Twonky on my BDP-93? The files are cda file type and dbpoweramp wants to convert them to wave. Will I lose anything by converting to wave? Is there a way to just copy the cda files to hard disk and have the Oppo send them to my receiver in native format for dts decoding?

Thanks.

Just use any good ripping software like Exact Audio Copy, or open the CD in Foobar and it should let you extract to wav.
You will lose nothing by extracting to wav; just remember that DTS is lossy so don't convert to another lossy format or the sound will degrade.
I don't have a -93 but a friend that does tells me his 5.1 DTS wav files can be played through the Oppo using Foobar with the upnp plugin. I don't know exactly how he has Foobar setup just that it's doable.

After posting last night I used dbPowerAmp's CONVERT feature to save it to WAVE........Didn't think it was working right because it reported the file to be 16 bit 2 channel; However, the file size was pretty big so I tried one on the Oppo and it played just fine. My receiver showed all 6 channels coming in and it automatically switched to DTS mode. This was via a USB connected drive. I haven't uploaded to my NAS yet.

If anyone else wants to do this, just use the CONVERT feature of dbPowerAmp and leave all the bits and rates AS SOURCE. You just select all the CDA files and it will convert them all to WAVE format. Takes about 5 minutes to do an entire disc. Resulting files should be in the MB range as WAVE files.

Edit: Converted from WAVE to FLAC and they sound fine - still play DTS format, all 6 channels. I did this so I could tag and add album art for Twonky.

Oppo BDP80 with MKV files. I use Vortexbox with Serviio for my DLNA software. I recently noticed that playback will be jerky at times and the DTS logo on the receiver will go in/out(lose sound and video is jerky)

So I decided to test the WDTV Live plus on the same network and it seems to be playing the same file fine.

So the question becomes is it the software(Serviio) or something with the oppo.

This is a BluRay file that I ripped with Makemkv for some testing purposes.

Anyone know of an Android or iOS app for remote control of the Oppo BDP-93? Can see a potential to use tablet for playback/control of streaming.

Does not exist. Oppo has stated that they have no immediate plans to support IP controls. Playback through such an app is a completely different thing and will never be possible. The player cannot "push" content, only "pull". IP control would essentially be just a different way to enter the same commands available on the player's remote.

So one of those DLNA android apps wouldn't do the trick?

I have a Windows Home Server and am in need of a DLNA server for it for my Oppo BDP-95E. Ideally it should be one that integrates into the WHS Console so it can be started/stopped etc. from there.

I'm looking for a simple DLNA server. I don't need transcoding, if the Oppo won't play the file then I'll transcode it manually. At the moment I want to play .flac (including hi-res and 5.1) and .mkv files (usually H.264 with AC3 audio). I don't want complex tagging and sorting, really I don't want a DLNA server I want a filing system. I just want all the sub-directories in a couple of root directories that I nominate (one for audio, one for video) to be visible on the Oppo as if browsing them from a connected hard disc. I don't want any files omitted from the view just because they're supposadly not playable, that's my problem to sort out.

So are there any DLNA servers that meet my desires above and work with the Oppo 95, and if not what's the closest I can get? I'd read the forum, but the sheer number of pages makes that daunting.

Servers I've tried that don't do the job:

* Builtin Microsoft one - won't serve .mkv or .flac files.

* Asset UPnP - won't serve .mkv files, navigation very slow, too keen on complex file management based on tags. Did sucessfully serve .flac to Oppo.

* Logitech Media Server 7.7.1 - would be ideal since I have Squeezeboxes, and it successfully serves .mkv files to the Oppo. But .flac just hangs the Oppo and it has to be power cycled.

Thanks, I'll do some reading up on those three. Of the three Twonky is the one I see people talk about the most often so if I can't see much difference I'll probably start with Twonky.

It's a bit frustrating that I have three UPnP servers that came pre-installed on the WHS box and none of them does the job!

I could have sworn Twonky was free, it's included in the unofficial firmware for the Humax HDR Fox T2. But the Twonky site seems clear that you have to pay for it. Am I confused or have I found a fake site that will take my money and then supply me with software that should be free?

(I don't mind paying for stuff if it's genuine commercial software, but there are a lot of scams out there.)

Like all pleasures, Twonky must be paid for. There is a free trial period, although on linux I couldn't get certain settings to work until I bought a license.

Bizarre, Twonky is definitely part of the free community replacement firmware for the Humax HDR Fox T2.

I'll probably start with Serviio as it's the only one that's completely free and makes the Windows Home Server Console add-in obvious. Twonky clearly states it has no WHS Console support.

It's an operating system with a TCP/IP stack. I fail to see how it being Windows causes any of the problems running DLNA servers. This code is all running at the IP stack layer.

Anyone know if it is possible to extract the DTS HD MA track from a BluRay that would be in a format playable via attached USB device or via network (NAS) on the Oppo BDP 93?

Apparently DVDFab does not have this ability or if it does, I am missing something. I don't want to spend the time and hard drive space to rip the entire audio & video BluRay just for the audio track.

Thanks.
