Once you download the files / disc, you can play it via your computer or even stream the individual clips... So in other words -- there is really not a requirement or need for a Blu-Ray burner. Pretty much anyone wanting to test the demo material can do so.

HELP,

Burned Visual BD9 Demo disc on Falcon DVD+R DL media @ 6X on my Asus DRW-24B burner. On my OPPO BDP-103 plays fine except the Baraka clip starts to jitter and the sound goes off and stutters about 1 minute in. Almost as if it cannot handle the bit rate.

On my Sony BDP-S360 nothing plays properly. Everything stutters.

Any ideas?

BTW these discs are great. Thank you!! Any threads on how to author our own?

Thanks,

Andrew

I haven't used my Sony in a long time, but, IIRC, there was a setting in the menus under audio that I needed to change to "direct" (or change to the option besides direct, I don't remember) to get several discs to play. Something that you wouldn't expect to have any effect on anything, but that did the trick.

 

Okay, I won't be lazy (I'm not sleeping tonight, anyway ;)).

Your manual, page 45, BD Audio Setting:

Mix and Direct. Mix is the default. Try changing it to Direct.

Unfortunately, some players are particular about the discs they play. You might need to try another brand of media.

 

 

Authoring your own disc, especially at this level (http://www.avsforum.com/t/1475769/demonstration-blu-ray-discs-independently-authored), is a royal PITA, not to be undertaken lightly. The software is very expensive and very difficult to use. The learning curve is steep and the work itself very tedious.

You can probably play individual m2ts files on your Oppo via USB, so you would be able to make your own clips with tsMuxeR (http://www.videohelp.com/tools/tsMuxeR) [RECENTLY UPDATED!!! :D], and select them individually for your own enjoyment, but producing a disc like this is a thankless task. So thank the people who've done it!

I found that if I checked the "verify" option when I was burning mine it told me if it would play properly. If it encountered any errors, that was it, the disc would have problems no matter what you did. Using the verify option pretty much doubles the time it takes to burn a disc, but its better than having to try to play every scene to make sure they all play perfectly. Also dont try burning anything off an external drive. I have a 256 gig SSD in my pc, and a 1T E-SATA external drive that I had the disc image on, and it failed verification FOUR discs in a row on me, I wasnt too happy. As soon as I copied the image from the external to my SSD it burned perfect.

As for the audio/video sync issues, I seem to get it quite often with blurays too. Its annoying as hell, I have to go in the options on the player and change it from Bitstream to LPCM and that usually cures it. This has happened on a PS3 and an OPPO BDP-103, I dont know why it happens, or why some full movie blurays do it but the demo disc doesnt do it every time, but whatever is causing it drives me up the wall. I just CANT watch a movie with the audio and video not in sync.

Just finished the creating the BD50 disk. All I can say is WOW! I want to thank anyone who had a hand in making this project. It is obvious to me that they put a lot of time and effort in creating it. As far as I can tell the only ones who may not be happy with this are my neighbors:D. There are a lot of clips that I hadn't had an opportunity to sample prior to creating the disk.

post #1326 of 1344

I forgot to mention, If anyone needs this project seeded, PM me and I will start it up at infinite speed as I have moved it to my secondary computer. There weren't too many out there when I did it on Sunday.

Just in case you haven't check the OPPO's thread...

I'll be better to play it through an external drive.

Every demo bd I've tried does not work on the xbox one. Dedicated bd player works fine. Just curious if anyone else have any luck or similar issue?

Xbox one does NOT support any BD-R or BD-RE disc. They only support "commercial BD"... Stupid, I know.

Yeah, I read anything authored privately. Hopefully they fix it with an update but doubt it since most ppl stream content these days instead of using a burned bd. But if you got a bd from your wedding video, family videos, etc, you're out of luck if you bought the xbone as ur only media player.

Agreed... Streaming still doesn't have the quality of physical media for audio and video that we "demand" for real enthusiasts or for demo material like this, but like you mentioned the gaming systems don't cater to us. They cater to the masses that can't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p and are OK with Dolby surround as long as they can browse from their couch.

Let alone Streaming is at the mercy of the ISP.. which seems to know when to stop working whenever I need it smile.gif

Does anyone have the URL to the torrent for download?

Never mind, found it, but no seeds. frown.gif

You are a little late to the party.

You may want to try some of the newer stuff:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1475769/demonstration-blu-ray-discs-independently-authored

But asking, as you have been, in each thread, is appropriate and will, hopefully, get some response. There's a lot of good stuff here!

post #1335 of 1344
O.k.. super silly question.

I burned the best of the best to a DVD-RL and it plays nicely, but I only get Multi-Ch out of my Oppo to my Onkyo. Is that the best audio I am going to get?

BTW, LOVE THE Demo Disc! Awesome work.....

Thanks,

Mark
post #1336 of 1344

No, you should get full HD sound (True/Master/whatever). You probably need to change a setting on your Oppo, for which you should probably ask in the Oppo thread.

Good luck, and thanks.

Michael

Set the oppo to bitstream and disable secondary audio
post #1338 of 1344
I downloaded the BD50 and extracted using 7-zip. When I play the files on my computer through the stream folder about 1/3 don't work. I also tried extracting with WinRAR with the same result. I am using VLC media player to play the files. Does anyone have a suggestion to get more files to work before I burn it to a disk?

Thanks!

What is it that does not work? Is is audio, video, stuttering?
A little more info might help to diagnose the problem.
post #1340 of 1344
Audio and video both don't work for clips 1, 11, 12, 22, 23, 33, 34, 44, 45, 46, 52 and 53 (ok, that's not really 1/3). The torrent for those files doesn't give any clues as to why they don't work and there were no obvious errors during the extraction. The audio for 37 is a static sound for the entire clip. The audio and video of the other files is fine, though a few other files are missing the little film preview picture when viewed in windows explorer.
post #1341 of 1344

Not all the files present on a disc are "active" files. Count the number of files that play properly and compare that to the menu for the disc.

And, just because everyone's expecting it ;), I strongly recommend buying a couple of rewritable discs.

You probably don't need 10, but at $3.50 each, I got these:

There was a time not long ago that they were much more expensive.

If you download Michael's file, it tells you what files are what and what files are the actual clips. Other way that you might be able to tell is by size.
The discs contains 5 segments, and 8 clips per segment, plus one background clip per segment and the main menu. Thus there should be 46 playable files. smile.gif , all the other files are created by the authoring process.
post #1343 of 1344
Well, it looks like I have found problems where there were none! I burned the disc without problems and it looks great. Thanks for your help Leo and LastButNotLeast - I appreciate it.
post #1344 of 1344

Another solution looking for a problem?

Glad it's working for you.

Michael
