My Blu-Ray Movie Burning Experiences... - Page 62

post #1831 of 2482
Is there some way for me to take a video short, create a Blu-Ray compatible disc using Nero or some similar BD authoring program, then burn the data onto a NORMAL DVD+R, and have it playback as High Definition on most if not all BluRay Players?

I have some video shorts I made in HD that I want to put on a normal DVD+R that most BluRay Players would play. Can someone let me know how to do that?

For the PS3 all I have to do is put the .mpeg files on a disc either in the root directory or a directory called VIDEO off the root and it works fine.

Is there something similar I can do that a regular BD player would recognize?

I guess AVCHD discs serve this purpose. Do all the newer BluRay Players play AVCHD discs?

u don't specify input video file type...
but tsMuxeR will DeMux-ReMux -> BluRay Form
burnable -> BD5/9 (DVD+R & DL) or BD-R (25gig)
burn using UDF 2.50 file system

smartLabs tsMuxeR: Transport Stream muxer

The procedure Mouw listed creates a sort of bastard AVCHD/Blu-ray file structure that most current players will play. I think BD-Rebuilder took the tsMuxer/TsRemux files, so you can probably look at the movie only section from http://forum.doom9.org/showthread.php?t=144674 to see a list of players that the files will play on and if any changes need to be made. For example, you might need to delete the AUXDATA folder for the disc to play on the newer Samsungs with current firmware. The Sony players will also play the tsMuxer output, but the Denon listed in the link might not because of the AVCHD info in the index.bdmv file.

From my experiences, you have to be careful with bit rates if you create AVCHD structures on DVD's. If the bit rate is too high (HD rates) then the drive cannot transfer data fast enough and you get stuttering. At least this is what I experienced on my PS3. I had to re-encode the video to a lower bit rate to play smoothly and sometimes go from 1080p to 720p.

I routinely create AVCHD structures on a USB drive to play on my PS3 and it works just fine, with TrueHD or DTS HD Master audio. But of course a USB2 drive is way faster than a DVD.

Not sure if the other standalone players have USB ports that allow this.

I'm trying to convert an .mkv file into a blu-ray iso image so that 'My Movies' will read it as such as well as PowerDVD 9???
post #1837 of 2482
Is that a question?
post #1838 of 2482
lol, sorry, i was in a rush and didn't even finish....

Yeah, how do i do this?? I have AnyDVD HD if that helps?
post #1839 of 2482
I'm guessing you could open with TSMuxer, which would demux the MKV into it's video and audio streams, mux it into .m2ts and generate a Blu-ray disc structure.

Creating an ISO from the BD file structure would then be easy with IMGBurn.

EDIT: After looking, yes, that's exactly how you could do it. Assuming your MKV uses standard BD compatible codecs. IMGBurn would need the BDMV & CERTIFICATE folders at the root, UDF 2.50 and the Recurse Directories option when generating the ISO.

AnyDVD HD would help if you had the original Blu-ray disk and a BD drive. In that case you could create an ISO straight from the disc and preserve video bitrate and HD audio. (I'm guessing you have a ~10GB 1080p rip with DTS 1.5mbps recoded or core audio).

What is the latest and greatest blu-ray burning software? I am leaning toward Nero 8 Ultimate and Power2Go.
post #1841 of 2482
Has anyone managed to integrate POWER DVD ULTRA 9 into VMC yet and get it to work if so,
Help!

IMGBURN

and it is free.

Remember to burn in UDF 2.5 format.

You are correct.

The DVD redbook standard only allowed for a max data transfer rate of 16Mb/s, so you have to keep your data under this if you are going to use DVD-R AVCHD format, as the discs will not spin any faster.

I have made a couple of 16Mb/s AVCHD on DVD-Rs, and they play fine on my Panny BD35 BRD player. The higher speed ones I tried do not play properly.

Yes.

I have used TSMUXER, then IMGBURN on several AVCHD on DVD-R (+ or-) and these played fine on a Panny BD35 and a Sony 350 player.

Note- the Sony player was a little fussy, but this was solved when I dropped my burn speed down to 1x.

VLC player (free) and KMPlayer (free community project) both play .mkv, mt2s etc etc etc files OK.

What is the best way to copy/backup blu-ray movie with the limited 25 GB blank disc? I want to backup Kungfu Panda for my kid. Kungfu Panda is roughly 43 GB. I want to store the original disc away.

I have Lite-On BD-RE, Power2go, and AnyDVD HD software. I copy Kungfu Panda files using AnyDVD HD to HDD. There are two folders on my HDD (BDMV and CERT).

Um, I didn't know there was any way to "back up" a BD movie.

RipBot264 will COMPRESS movie only -> DVD5/9 or BD-R 25gb

BD_Rebuilder SHRINKS movie OR whole-disc -> DVD5/9 & BD-R

ImgBurn v2.4.2.0 -> LG GGW-H20L (6X) -> Memorex BluRay 25GB BD-R (4X)

burning at MAX speed (4+) plays back fine on Sony BDP-S350

looks like NEW version ImgBurn v2.4.3.0 Released

I'll wait for thing to settle down, and hopefully somebody can come up with friendly software to shrink blu-ray movie. It is still too complicated. If I have a lot of time, I don't mind it but I'm too busy with the twin boys to hackle through the software. For now, I stick with the Power2go and AnyDVD HD to copy the 43 GB movie on the 50 GB BD-RE disc. The 50 GB BD-RE is pricey, but it is no headache. I can re-use it too.

Hi all

I'm really getting interesting in authoring my own BR discs. I'm on a Mac, and it seems the only software that supports this is the new version of Toast. Has anyone used this, and can you comment on how easy/difficult it is to make BR discs? I've already used iDVD quite a bit, as well as Roxio Easy Media Creator on the windows side of things.

I have many concerts on Blu-Ray and HD-DVD. Is there any way to record the songs that I like from each to a Blu-Ray disc using a Blu-ray burner? Thanks.

Jim

What are media prices around these days?

And shrinking a BD movie, isn't it the point to have the best PQ and AQ so you want to preserve the bitrates of the studio encode?

Or is there such a large delta between 25 and 50 GB media?

Your best chance of just converting/creating m2ts files might be "Video Converter" at http://www.iskysoft.com/video-converter-windows.html

Alternatively, the new Corel Video Studio (used to be Ulead Video Studio) can create/edit all types of video files (including Hi-Def).

I have VS11X2Pro and I'm pretty sure it doesn't output VC-1 though.

That time is here: RipBot264. I know, it's been talked about here for a few months, but I have been looking around for ways to "shrink" a BD disk down for either iPod or PC use (like watching movies on a plane) and successfully did this w/RipBot and it's gang of other freeware utils this week. I'm running a (pretty fast) Vista laptop, and created a (movie only) 720p AVCHD DVD+R D/L that played on my Samsung 2550 without a hitch. All it takes is time.

I have a question maybe someone can help. I just burned my first BD-R Movie. I used Tsmuxer to create a blu-ray disc from a M2TS file of the movie only sin city. I first copied the main movie with anydvd in place on my hard drive. I then used imageburn with all the correct setting.

So, the disc plays perfectly on powerDVD but when I play it im my PS3 I get to about 80min and then the movie freezes.

I have an LG Burner and am using ridata bd-r 2x disc. I'm assuming there is a problem with the ps3 reading the disc since power dvd will play it perfectly. Any thoughts?

Thanks
post #1859 of 2482
I think your assumption is correct. If you can play the disc at all in the PS3 (and I haven't used TSmuxer), then it should play all the way through. I've read reports of PS3 Blu-Ray drives failing, and you've described one of the symptoms.

Yup, disc plays perfectly audio and video until about 80 min. If this is the case I hope eventually the PS3 will have updates to better support bd-r discs.
