    So I got a French release of a Korean movie in the mail yesterday. It says it has English subs on the back cover, but it doesn't. I went looking for subs and found some that were timed and looked nice. It all muxed well in the VoxMac tsmuxer and such. I lifted the file (just video and appropriate language track, as usual) using MakeMKV. Completely standard procedure.

    But when I try to play the AVCHD folder on my Oppo BDP-83 using a USB stick (I always test this way before using a BD-R), there's no picture. I get sound and the subs work too, but the picture is just the Oppo logo, as it usually is on boot-up. I've encountered problems before putting subs on my movies (still haven't cracked Good Bye, Lenin, for some reason ), but this is a first. The AVCHD folder works fine in VLC on my Mac.

    As far as software goes, nothing has changed since last I succesfully nailed Snowpiercer. I also tried using multiAVCHD in Win XP through VM Fusion, but the end result when testing on the BD player was the same.

    Any suggestions would be very welcome.

    Maybe try tsmuxer 2.6.12 in winxp.

    What is the video codec? h264,vc1 or mpeg2?

    The codec is h.264.

    Trying tsmuxer in WinXP is definitely an option.

    Resolution, frame-rate, scan-type?

    I'm not sure if it's relevant, and I can see you're from Denmark, but most NTSC Blu ray players won't play 25fps interlaced h.264.

    1920*1080, 23.976, progressive.

    Nothing unusual as far as that goes. The Oppo does everything you can throw at it as well.

    Tried decrypting the disc with MakeMKV first. Also used a different set of subs. Same sh*t.

    Now trying the latest tsmuxer in WinXP. It's taking forever...

    Can you MediaInfo the final M2TS file for us?

    I don't really know where to check tbh.

    I'm working on the MediaInfo thing.

    Is this sufficient? I've only just tried MediaInfo for the first time.

    I have to split the files to make them compatible with the FAT32 USB stick.

  14. MediaInfo tells you the bit depth. Select View -> Text. Then look in the video section. One of the lines should read "Bit depth_______N bits".

  17. The video looks "normal" -- I don't see anything unusual. I wouldn't expect the Oppo to have trouble playing it. Have you tried remuxing it?

    I've muxed it several times now in different operating systems. Or do you mean something else specifically with "remux"?

    Load the .MPLS file into MMG and see if it can see it.

    The only oddity I can see in the MediaInfo output is that the Video is listed as 'English', it's a stretch but maybe it should match the audio so the Oppo knows what to play... ie, maybe the Oppo is TOO smart.

    I doubt it will achieve anything, but you could try loading the MKV into the MMG header editor and changing the video language to Korean. Unless someone has a better idea.

    You should be able to use a tool like h264tsCutter to cut out a short segment of the M2TS file. I think MMG has the ability to cut out a section from an MKV file -- I've never used it for that though.

    I was just thinking that there might be something up with the playlist file (.MPLS), which VLC ignores once it starts reading the M2TS...

    Don't we need to see the final result, rather than the ripped MKV file?

    I can't get H264tsCutter to like my m2ts file

    Can you somehow see if something's wrong?

    I honestly have no clue as to how to split a piece of the MKV using MMG

    Well, according to MediaInfo, other than the audio language, the fact that yours seems to be split into 5 parts and that the chapters seem to be incomplete, hidden or missing it looks identical to one I've made. However, I will say, I tried Tagging my MKV's with MetaX and part of that is adding images. After adding the Tags I remuxed them all to clean up the insides. After a year or so of this I finally took the time to look at a file that I'd supposably 'Tagged' only to find the image was missing. I checked everything I'd ever tagged to find not one of them had an image in them. So I looked at a file I'd just tagged and according to MetaX it had an image in it, according to MediaInfo it had an image in it, and most of the time VLC saw that there were images in them. However, whenever I loaded one of these files into anything MKVToolNix it reported that the image didn't exist. It turned out that Dan of MetaX hadn't been adding UIDs to his attachments. MetaX didn't care, because it didn't know any better, MediaInfo didn't care either, it probably didn't even check and neither did VLC. However, MKVToolNix saw the lack of a UID, decided it was incomplete and simply discarded it, so none of my remuxed files had an image in it.

    So my analysis of the playlist is inconclusive, apparently MediaInfo and VLC can see it properly, but that doesn't mean there's nothing wrong with it.

    I split Snowpiercer and all previous homesubs the exact same way so I could test it using my USB stick

    That means you don't have Windows' DirectShow set up to read and display M2TS files (you probably need an M2TS reader/splitter like Haali or LAV Filter, and maybe a DirectShow h.264 decoder). But I don't think you need to see the video to cut it (though obviously, it's easier). You can just mark off a 10 second clip in the middle of the file and save it.
