Why does MB hate the Transformers? - Page 2

post #31 of 44
Can't Speak for dropkick (but he may be as well) using Lav Filters 0.51.1.

I have never used Graphstudio, if someone wants to give me a quick rundown on what to do i will run it.

Thanks

Things like this are one of the reasons why I just stick to ISOs.

I dunno what to tell you, it works just fine for me.

I installed MakeMKV, and ripped my copy of Transformers 3 to disc, with only the Video and the TrueHD audio track.
I don't have MB, so i tried in WMC directly, and it plays just fine. I'm not bitstreaming though, i would suggest to turn that off as the first thing when you notice some kind of trouble.

This setup is of course LAV Splitter with LAV Audio (and Microsofts H264 decoder, because i was too lazy to override that)

I got some playback failure when i accidentally had Haali setup as the MKV splitter from some earlier testing, though, but thats to be expected, it doesnt do too well with TrueHD. I'm not sure what big benefits Haali has in the peoples minds producing those codec packs, the only feature not present in LAV is the "Ordered Chapters" in MKVs, but the only people that ever use that are Anime people, which i would claim are not in a majority (of course i could be wrong tongue.gif)

What does playing a file from iso vs mkv have to do with getting TrueHD 7.1 to decode? You either have your HTPC set up right to do it or you don't. The file container doesn't change that.

The Haali tray icon which allows selection of a certain audio track from rips containg more than 1 track is the main reason I still default to the Haali splitter for MKV's. Media Center and WMP do not have a provision to do this like other, more popular players allow.

Also the set up an use is in assassin's $25 guide which is worth far more than $25.

With MPC-HC, I can toggle audio tracks with my remote. I've never used the WMC player so IDK how that works. I don't use Haali either.

LAV does everything I need. Thanks Nev!

I'm watching Ghost Protocol right now. I didn't realize it was True HD 7.1 until someone here mentioned it. This movie works fine so there goes that theory.

OK....

I will try using LAV Audio and Lav Splitter only...

I assumed that the Lav video was required for the MKV playback. (and since its in the lav filters install). If it works without Lav video...when would i need to use lav video then??


I have tried removing all the bitstreaming, but that didn't change a thing.

Thanks

Ok,

So a long troubleshooting story short...

I tried what Nevcairiel said his setup was (thanks nev) and tried lav splitter and lav audio in windows media center only and relized that wmc cannot see .mkv files in its library. So, i found, downloaded and installed the registry edit from hack7mc.com....and it now it plays in wmc and mediabrowser now...so installed all the x64 Lav filters and setup for bitstreaming and CUDA accelleration (everything i had before) and EVERYTHING WORKS!!

Thanks everyone for the help.

I've tried to stop myself from fiddling with my setup now that everything is working. This would be a reason to fiddle

I have this same problem with Transformers and also with 'The Other Guys', I figured it was some kind of copy protection on those two movies.
