I'm about to convert all my movies to MKV. My entire movie collection is folder rips... DVD and Bluray. As it is now, my HTPC is stock. Meaning no codec packs at all. I built this HTPC to be as plug and play as possible, but would like to consolidate my ever growing collection to require less HDD space. As much as I don't want to... I will need Shark007 installed to playback the best quality audio.
My questions is... Can I configure my HTPC to output both DTS-HD and TrueHD (with Shark007) easily without screwing up playback from TMT5?? I like the fact that playing a folder rip, TMT5 plays it beautifully. No swtching or fiddling with the audio to output what I like. I've always been turned off by MKV, mainly because (back in the day when I used to DL MKVs) it seemed one MKV was created differently than another. But beings how this is MY collection... I can convert them the same way EVERY time.
I'd like to think that Im experienced converting movies, should I use TSMuxer or MakeMKV?? I'm testing out MakeMKV right now... I like the ease of it.
Playback will eventually be 100% VLC, I like how it plays anything you throw at it. I am currently testing with it and found some shortfalls. VLC doesn't playback DTS-HD or TrueHD audio, so thats where Shark007 will have to come in. The HD audio is in the container, TMT5 plays it back beautifully. I'd like VLC to do the same.
@Assassin- I used your Bitstreaming Setup Guide
, VLC still not passing through HD audio.
Anyone with knowledge with Shark007, please help.
