Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for Handbrake MKV files that work nicely with the C200?
I read a thread (a long time ago) and used the recipe and on most movies it works ok. It is basically just choose high profile, then MKV container and set the constant quality at RF:22. In Audio I also add a 3rd track for DTS Passthru.
Here would be the media info for Beauty and the Beast
, I don't want to litter the thread with it. This movie visually drops frames per second down to about 15fps constantly. What I need to do is pause it for a couple seconds and then hit play again. That or stop the movie and select it again (it picks up where it left off) and it plays fine for a while. Eventually it will start bogging down to (what I loosely estimate) to be around 15fps, very boggy. Audio never studders, it's just the video, and it never pauses to buffer or anything, just continues bogging until I pause/play it.
Some movies play fine the whole time, but all I really use this unit for is my kids movies and it's all Pixar stuff, and that's where most of the issues come from.
For the record it bogs equally being fed off an internal 1TB ext3/nmt 7200.12 drive as well as an external WD USB 1.5TB drive.
The MKV is typically 3-6GB for a full blu-ray movie. The ISO that I make the MKV from is an AnyDVD HD rip that sits around 40GB-55GB. The ISO plays perfectly fine and never studders. It's clearly a MKV encoding issue. If it can play a 55GB file flawlessly, certainly can't be a hardware issue playing a 3GB MKV.
Any tips on a good MKV recipe with Handbrake (or any other software aside MakeMKV) are appreciated!
