    I bought David Attenborough Life on Earth in BluRay but it will not play in my Sony BDP-S3100 BluRay player, everything else I have is fine including other Blurays from BBC.

    If I rip the episodes to my media player they play fine but they are big so I shrunk them with Handbrake but they will not play.

    On my computer they play fine in VLC but in WMP I get video but no sound.

    I was wondering if anyone knew why they won't play on my player and why I can't encode them.

    Below in the output from MediaTab:

  2. You don't have a DirectShow DTS decoder.

    Take a look at your other BBC Blu-ray discs (the ones that work in your Sony player), and see if they also show up as 25fps and MBAFF scan type.

    Thanks for the great replies and sorry for not giving enough info for the Handbrake conversion.
    I installed a DirectShow DTS decoder and I can shrink them now.
    The fps for one that works is different it's 23.976 and so is the scan type, it's Progressive.

    Sony ntsc blu-ray players will not play pal blu-ray authored discs,just encode to mkv with handbrake and it will play pal mkv as long as you didn't use any weird encoding values.
    I think,therefore i am a hamster.
