I might need to pull all the source discs and maybe Remux a subtitle and move to MKV. Ugh.
I've been using media servers for at over 15 years now, through DVD, BluRay and now UHD BluRay, and my main motivation was originally to get rid of all the menu nonsense and forced playlists and just get straight to the movie in the most elegant manner possible.
A few years ago when I was using 2K on a Mede8er, I used to use TSMuxer to create movie only BDMV folders - force of habit because I was used to the structure.
Then one day I asked myself why on earth was I doing that - as I say, habit as much as anything else.
Anyway, I moved to MKV and have never looked back. Dead simple - you keep what you need and discard what you don't and you have a single wrapper without all the needless overhead, and best of all, generally everything just works so you don't need to spend half your life on forums wondering why the BDA just moved the goal posts and made everyone's life difficult yet again.
With the greatest of respect, it seems that the majority of people moaning about this that or the other are those struggling with ISO rips and particularly (for reasons I really can't fathom), menus etc etc etc.
Those of us using MKVs just seem to keep our heads down and enjoy watching great movies.
My advice; give it a go. You might like it.
