Mmh, not on DTS, I see this only with AC3 tracks (Mediainfo 0.7.72)?If you switch to tree mode in media info it shows what percentage of the file size is video so figuring the audio portion is easy enough it seems.

I posted a trio of pics a few pages back. Go view them on your TV and see if you can tell a difference. Now, those are just stills mind you. It looks a lot better when viewed in motion, as you are meant to see it.So 4gb...ok, I looked at the few BD's I have for TV shows and it looks like they are averaging about twice that. So my questions is, what is you opinion of the viewing quality of those compressed shows. Would you say they are still better than an up-scaled version of a reg dvd but not as good as an uncompressed BD? I'm watching them on a 70in TV so I'm curious what quality drop, if any, I would see.
You shouldn't give a final file size due to differing source material. Things like darkness level, motion level, grain level and noise level are just a few things that will affect final file size if all other things are equal.You can re-encode a BD file between 15 to 32 GB to about 4GB and still have good picture quality. However, I would suggest only doing DTS or DD 5.1 sound rather than doing HD sound since a DTSMA or TrueHD sound track can be over 10GB.
You'll start noticing degrading PQ with bigger HDTV's. I used to worried about space when I started ripping my movies / tv shows. Thereafter, I did some research and ended up building an UnRaid server. At the moment I've got 15 TB, and I will be adding 3 TB more since I'm running out of space. BD movies with HD sound tracks take some space.
Because you can always do a lot more, when talking about recompression, when you are cutting vs adding. Taking bits away is so much simpler than adding "phantom" bits.And that's my question. Just how good is good quality? Obviously it's no longer BD quality, but how much better than up-scaled dvd quality is it? Going through all my ripped TV shows just now, it really depends on how the darn show was filmed. A show like Haven looks quite a bit softer than it's BD counterpart, but a show like Lost is downright sharp on the reg dvd version. I'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between reg and BD so why purchase a BD of it and compress it? Not trying to be argumentative here, just curious what everyone thinks about this.
I've been running 3tb Reds 24/7 since they've come out.
Do you know what the effects are when tweaking --keyint, VBV, --aq, --dct-decimate, or any number of x264 options do to a non-grainy dark source? How about to a lightly colored static source? If the answer is no to any of these, then you shouldn't make statements like that because people reading your posts will be more apt to believe what you post even if it isn't true.I highly doubt that. Not for ripping. However, Home Theater equipment then I do agree. I've got a lot to learn for that.
I could have done that for you real quick if I had noticed this...I'll need to check my Akira BD. That has a six channel 24/192 track. And I have a couple of Chris Botti BDs that have 24/96 six channel tracks I can look at.
The BD info program showed that it was under 10GB for just the Japanese Dolby True HD track for just the movie. But if the two English True HD tracks are added then the total audio file size goes over 12GB for the movie.I could have done that for you real quick if I had noticed this...
192kHz TrueHD track demuxed: 12.4GB
192kHz TrueHD track converted to FLAC: 12.1GB
This is the for the JAP audio track. I would ***** slap anyone that listens to that horrible translated ENG track.The BD info program showed that it was under 10GB for just the Japanese Dolby True HD track for just the movie. But if the two English True HD tracks are added then the total audio file size goes over 12GB for the movie.
SO is there a difference between the 25th Anniversary and the original maybe? I was going by the information that the BDinfo program showed me. So I'm wondering if the BDinfo program does not give the proper sizes?This is the for the JAP audio track. I would ***** slap anyone that listens to that horrible translated ENG track.
AHHHH!!!!! I did not know you guys were talking about the 25th Anniv. Edition.SO is there a difference between the 25th Anniversary and the original maybe? I was going by the information that the BDinfo program showed me. So I'm wondering if the BDinfo program does not give the proper sizes?
I used to have a copy of the original BD release but I misplaced it so I purchased the 25th Anniversary version to replace it last year.
There is no easy solution. The first question is what types of forced subs, if any, your playback device supports. I'm not familiar with the WDTV Live SMP so I hope someone else can answer that. Once we figure that out we can give a lot better advice.Can someone point me in the direction of how to manage forced subs? I use the wdtv live smp, using dvdfabhd, main-movie BD ISO. I don't mind using MKV either. I'm looking for an easy solution without loosing any picture quality. Screenshots definitely help
By searching back in this thread. This subject has been discussed extensively several times. It seems it comes up every couple months.I didnt know there were different types of forced subs. How can i find this out?
