  1. Hope someone can shed some light here..

    I'ved ripped my son's collection of Bluray's with MakeMKV (no issues) but a few of them are too large to fit on a standard 25GB disc and my player doesn't like my 50GB discs too much. I used handbrake on the MKVs I've made with zero success as my player gives me the finger after inserting the disc. My uncompressed MKVs that I run through TSMuxer work fine but after handbraking them it's a straight no-go.

    I've tried the High Profile (h.264) with changing the frame rate to CFR and electing for DTS or AC3 passthrough (TSmux yells at me for AAC for bluray iso)
    I can play the compressed MKV with VLC, etc.. with no issues but the conversion from MKV to the ISO through TSmux is failing. I can only imagine it's my compression settings.....

    Is their a recommended setting for both video and audio for an MKV so that it can be easily muxed back into an iso for burning??
    I know I cant be the only A-hole that has run into this problem but my Google-fu is not strong today.

    Again, I've made many successful bluray's from MKVs but they were straight from MakeMKV to TSMUXER..My issue is with handbrake being involved. Should I be selecting MPEG2 instead of h.264?

    Thanks in advance

    Handbrake is probably producing non-compliant files. Try using BD-Rebuilder

  3. Very cool....I'm rolling that now (with some errors but I'll Google that).

    For my own knowledge, is it that TS-muxer is not converting the h.264 encoded video back to the m2ts correctly that's causing my player not to recognize it? If I use handbrake in the future should I use the MPEG-2 codec in lieu of h.264 to avoid this issue in the future?

    TsMuxer just repackages the files into a BD structure, it doesn'y "convert" anything. The issue is probably the settings in Handbrake
    MPEG2 will have the same problems with the same settings.

    Just because a video is encoded with H264 doesn't mean that it has been made compliant to Blu-ray specifications, which are rather stringent in many areas. tsMuxeR will not be able to differentiate between those that are compliant and those that are not.

    Using BD Rebuilder is the easiest way to avoid these kind of problems when compressing a Blu-ray rip.
