  1. Hi,

    I just convert the complete Battlestar Galactica to mkv file with Handbrake. Everything was fine until the last episode... This episode is running 2h26 minutes.

    I ripped it and it was running fine with VLC but with my DVD player (DLNA), I get a File cannot play message. With the same settings, I created a preview and it was working correctly.

    So the difference between this episode and the others is the duration. The file size is pretty big (around 2.5Gb).

    Any suggestion?

  2. Maybe your player doesn't play files over 2 GB.

    Are you using a DVD player or a BluRay player? It may be part of the problem. DVD players usually don't support H.264 video at all, so I am very surprised if you have one that does. In your case, the file size may be a problem and 2 GB may be the largest file it can play. Some of this has to do with FAT32 limitations. BluRay players usually support NTFS, which allows for larger file sizes. If all your files that play OK are under 2 GB, I think this is probably your problem. You'll have to use a lower video bit rate to get the file under 2 GB so it can play.

    I don't see anything in your MediaInfo data that looks like a problem, although the fact that it is in French may cause some of our members to not even try to read it. I took a year of French in college and studied Spanish so it's OK for me, but in the future it would be better to put this information in English.

    I tried again with some chapters on one file and the other on another one. Same result...

    Thanks,
    I am using a blueray player. I have another file with slithly higher that 2GB and it was working.
    I tried again by putting chapters on different files and the problem is still present.

  6. Keep in mind that 2 GB is 2,147,483,648 bytes. So a slightly larger than 2,000,000,000 byte file may not really be larger than 2 GB.

    I totally agree. But like I said previously, I created 2 files with chapter 1 to 9 and 10 to 17 so they are lower now than 2GB. Same problem. This is strange. Why the preview was working?

  8. You were right! Max 2GB
    So what should I do to rip movies longer than 2 hours?

    You encode them at a lower bitrate or divide them into two parts.

    (BTW, as is frequently pointed out here, "ripping" is simply copying the material. You are converting or reencoding. Everyone knows what you mean in this case, but the difference is often important.)

  10. Would someone explain me what is this 2GB limitation? There is no HD in bluray. Is it a DLNA limitation?

  11. The 2 GB limitation comes about because the player uses 32 bit integers for indexing. Unsigned 32 bit integers can range from 0 to +4 GB. Signed integers range from -2 GB to +2 GB. Their lazy programmers probably didn't want to go through the code to make it properly support unsigned integers to allow 4 GB files, or even better, use 64 bit integers for even larger files (the CPU used in the TV may not support 64 bit ints).
