post #691 of 852
I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, or what. I don't want to spend money on discs, so I am playing with MakeMKV and there is no structure. All the video files are separate mkvs. I just want them to be in 1 master mkv file, like I have with a majority of my blurays I have bought and ripped to MKV's. This is annoying

Does that actually help him out? Using MakeMKV is pretty straight forward. Heck, I've ripped over 360 movies from my Blu-Ray and DVD collection, but these demo discs spit out a separate .mkv ifle for each demo scene.

that's exactly it, It's not structured like a regular Bluray where makemkv rips 1 mkv file, it rips every single scene into it's own MKV which sucks. I have no issue making my own MKV's now, I've ripped about 10 blurays in the past few weeks and have them on my stream server for XBMC, but i'm still having issues playing ISO/Bluray movies directly from XBMC.
post #696 of 852
Oh, I thought he meant ripping in general, not ripping the demo disc specifically... yeah, the demo disc is not structured like a normal movie disc...

I misinterpreted his question, sorry...

I know renaming mkv's is a bit of a chore, but I have provided the link between the .m2ts filenames and the scene names a few posts ago. This can be used to rename the .mkv's I guess. With renamed mkv's, it should be super-usable in XBMC (though you'd miss the menu itself).

What do you guys use to play MVC MKV's? Can MPC-HC/BE handle MVC playback?

The link to 2nd volume torrent is not working for me from media fire. I've tried entering the mediafire url directly into bit torrent as download from url and it says it's not valid. When I go to mediafire and try to download the link itself I get spam installers asking me to install them. Surely I don't have to install crapware to get the torrent link from mediafire?

The spam is just a pop-up window that opens up after you click download. You can just close that window and ignore it.

Regardless, I've attached the file for you smile.gif TheULTIMATEBassDemoDiscVol2.torrent.txt 115k .txt file

Just remove the .txt extension (.torrent is not on the list of approved extensions it accepts), then open it up with your torrent client (i recommend µTorrent).

Thread Starter 
If anyone is using Chrome or Firefox for a web browser, I highly recommend that you use AdBlock. It will let you go to sites like Mediafire and no ads will appear. Since I use AdBlock, I did not know there was this kind of trouble in downloading it. Thanks shiptz!

Whoever played the mt2s on their WDTVs, did you guys experience any stutters during some of the scenes?
post #704 of 852
I have not kept up on the titles of the demo material, but am curious if anyone has suggested Michael Buble's "Home"? There are some bass notes in there that are simply subterranean - deeply moving (as in earthmoving) if you have the right equipment.

I used Virtual Clone Drive to mount the iso and then Handbrake to convert to mkv. Easy peasy.

Basic tutorial

Virtual Clone Drive

Handrake
post #707 of 852
Now that I think about it... Does converting to mkv reduce the audio quality?
post #708 of 852

No, as long as you select the appropriate tracks in MakeMKV.

I used Handbrake instead of MakeMKV, but I selected DTS-HD passthrough.

Then that's what you (should ;)) get.

Hey guys - I downloaded this and the sound quality is extremely low... to the point where I can't even watch the clips as it is too distorted.... Any suggestions?

We need more information. Did you burn this to a disc? Mount it as an image? Playing it back on a computer? On a gaming system?

The clips either work or don't, it isn't like they download at a lower quality, it is the playback method/system, thus my questions above...
post #713 of 852
The torrent wouldn't complete to 100% if the download is not 100% identical to the image shared, so it can't be a case of a bad image. No one else complained before, and personally I have no issues in playback, so it has to be something on your end.

Did you burn the BD or are you playing the ISO on the PC? Which player are you using? Does the AVR show the proper codec when playing clips?
post #714 of 852
Sorry for the vague complaint.

Speakers are all b&w with a DIY stereo integrity 18" subwoofer in ported box using a high end pioneer AVR connected via the stereo out (red + white jacks to 3.5mm headphone) to my laptop which I downloaded the torrent from.

I tried mounting the ISO using some free mounting software and it sounded like crap, so I next downloaded the ISO to mkv converter that was recommended a few posts back with the same results.

I have a ps3 that I ideally would like to play this on but I don't know what to convert the ISO to to enable t to play on my ps3.

I bought a pack of dual layer blu ray bd-r discs ($$$) and unfortunately my burner reads blu rays but isn't able to burn them... Only can burn regular DVDs...

Make sure you have the codecs to play DTS-HD and Dolby TrueHD.

For the PS3, if you want to play the individual files, the files inside the STREAM folder (m2ts) will need to be converted to TS files, which is just a different type of container, there would be no transcoding just a file change. You can use TsMuxer for this. Or, run the BDMV folder through MultiAVCHD and then copy the the AVCHD folder to a FAT32 formatted external drive, plug it into the PS3 and play it from there. Here is the link for how to do this -- http://www.avsforum.com/t/1469192/reference-2-blu-ray-demo-disc-bd9s-bd50#post_23227070

You still haven't told us which codecs are displayed on the AVR during playback... smile.gif

Also, how are you connected from PC to AVR? via HDMI? Open up Sound in control panel, then compare your tabs to mine:



Did you try different DSP modes?
post #717 of 852
Oh, also, which video/graphics card do you have?
post #718 of 852
Thanks for the help guys... Unfortunately my laptop doesn't have HDMI so I am just using the 3.5mm headphone jack cross red/white banana plug stereo input on my avr.

I am working now but will try your suggestions when I get home.

I have no idea as to what codecs I am using. I just downloaded the big ass torrent and tried to play it.

Thanks though I will comment back this evening.

LOL, I just fell off my seat... stereo jack smile.gif

If your laptop has display port (DP), you can get a converter from DP to HDMI, that should do the trick...
