"The Best Of The Demo Discs Demo Disc" BD9/DVD-DL - Page 3

post #61 of 159
I downloaded torrent and unzipped and followed instructions from here http://www.avsforum.com/t/1469192/reference-2-blu-ray-demo-disc-bd9s-bd50#post_23227070

All went ok with MultiAVCHD. After it was done, the folder that cointains all the files and folder is 62.2 gb. I thought it was going to be 8 gb but its 62 gb. There is no way to burn this much of data. According to instructions on the link, I'm supposed to drag and drop the folder but that won't work for sure. Advice please.
Thanks.

You should not have used MultiAVCHD. The torrent download should be two folders: BDMV and CERTIFICATE.
Should be about 8GB; burn those.

I Was able to burn the disk using Image Burner with PS3 option. PS3 is also able to play without any issue but some clips not all. About half of the clips when I play get stuck and then play a bit and then get stuck. Other half are playing absolutely fine. Could it be the burn speed issue? I did choose 2.5 version of UDF.
Thanks

Hopefully, someone with a PS3 will chime in soon.

For the PS3 I would recommend putting the files on to an external USB stick/drive. You can always try re-burning the disc at a lower speed, but that might not fix the stuttering where as using a USB device will work flawlessly.

Unfortunately is hit or miss with AVCHD (BD9) discs and player compatibility. Hope this helps.

So just copy BDMV and CERTIFICATE folders to USB and that is it?

I think they need to be in a folder, but I don't know. Fortunately, it's easy enough to try either way.

They need to be inside an AVCHD folder.

Which just means you need to rename "New Folder" to "AVCHD," then put BDMV and CERTIFICATE in that.

I feel the same way. I though the rating of "average" is way too low for this disc... Regardless of the review its a great disc!

I have no idea how they came up with that rating of average:

Video: 5/5
Audio 5/5
Menu: 3/5

Overall rating: 3/5

WTF ?!?!?!? The rating is solely based on the *interface* to the actual content rather than on the content itself ?? Remind me to never put any value into their rating system. PFFFT !

Are you certain of that? I have been using AVCHD on external USB HDD for years and have never heard of this shortcut. That doesn't mean it doesn't exist though! I added the BD50s (Reference Disc 1 & 2) to multiAVCHD and "re-authored" and it worked perfectly that way for both. MultiAVCHD threw an error when I tried to make a AVCHD compatible project for the "Best of" when I tried to add the files/folder.

Sorry for double post, but I am unable to edit the previous post and append this information to it.

How do you play thru USB? Do you go to Video menu and select USB --> Display Al --> Go to folder --> Select Stream file to play?


I tried it using usb. I was able to play videos by going to Video menu and selecting USB but then lost sound :-(. I started looking into the folder and realized that it didn't have Certificate folder. I might have deleted it by mistake and there is a possibility that it caused some clips to play slow. I also burned another dvd with slowest speed (4x) and still same issue and exactly same clips get slow. Some work fine and some slow down.

I have no PS3 experience, so I'm afraid I can't help.

caper, any thoughts?

No. When you create a properly created AVCHD folder, you will go under "Video → USB Device → AVCHD" and then it should behave like you just started playing a blu-ray. The screen will vanish and it will either start with the menu from the project or start with a top-menu that multiavchd creates. If it isn't a proper AVCHD structure, then it won't play, and you can only browse the files and try and stream each M2TS file individually, which won't work on older PS3's because they can't play DTS MA via streaming interface inside the PS3. The proper AVCHD structure on the USB device tricks the PS3 into using the Blu-ray player instead of the streaming interface inside the machine. Yes, they are different hardwares. Cheers.

Thx Caper. What is the proper AVCHD structure?

thx will but. But if I'm not wrong, this download is already in BDMV format. Taking a quick look at the links shows that it shows you how to decode a BD. I believe a more appropriate approach in this case (where you already have BD contents available) is to follow this link http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=143631

To use it on a PS3 with a USB external memory device, you will need to run it through multiAVCHD. I have been doing this for years, and it worked for Ref Disc 1 & 2. For some reason an error was thrown with the Best-Of ref Disc.
That link you provided probably does the same thing multiAVCHD does.
Here is a quote from that thread
Quote:
Your program converts file names to 8.3, then runs fixclpi.exe and then does the equivalent to deank's fixclipinf.exe
It changes the format slightly so the PS3 will play the external device by using the Blu-ray player, instead of the internal streaming interface.
I may try it and see if I can get it to work since I don't like using optical media anymore if I don't have to.
Cheers.

I tested AVCHDMe and was successfully able to play thru USB. Steps are very simple
1 - Create a folder named AVCHD.
2 - Copy BDMV and Certificate folder into AVCHD
3 - Run AVCHD.
4 - Click on Browse button and select BDMV button.
5 - AVCHDMe will show 3 points and they all should have correct mark. If any of them has a cross mark then its not in right format. Click on Fix it button and it will fix it.
6 - Copy AVCHD folder to USB.

Enjoy the movie.

Now one thing I wand to do is to have multiple movies on usb. My usb is 35 GB and I want to copy more. Does anyone know if I can copy multiple movies on USB?

I, for one, need a break. Steve, I think, had more than enough aggravation with his that he's not interested. Leo is helping Chris with his second "Ultimate Bass" disc, which might be out by the end of the year.

You, however, are more than welcome to grab the baton and run with it.

I'd be interested in doing a 3d disc, the only problem is that I don't have a 3d display. Always assumed I'd get to it whenever I got one.

I'm pretty sure you'd get enough input that you don't need to have one of your own. ;)

Of course, you wouldn't be able to enjoy it much after you produced it. :D

I just upgraded my tv, well some one I know would say that I downgraded (he is write but that is a whole other subject), it is a 3d display and the ps3 is 3d too. However, I have one 3d disc that my wife got for me, very thoughtfull of her because I had no intention on testing 3d, but now with that disc... I HAVE to!

I've very casually researched creatin 3d menus, what I found is that it's complicated and requires software that I don't have and that I am not familiar with, so IF I developed an interest in 3d and find the time I might do a test disc... BIG IF though.
