Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Post by realbabilu »

Research playing DV on my cheapest Android TV Hisense 55E7G:

1. Dolby Vision MP4 remux always works, subtitle should be outside same name, on srt or ass version. all normals at FF/RW
2. Dolby Vision TS remux by TSmuxer nightly, sometimes smooth, sometimes can't be played at all(even in PC!), subtitle not in sync. Buggy.

To Dovi script author.

1. For MKV to MP4, with PGS Subtitle included, it shall be continue process with asking for additonal SRT file instead stop it. And there is a workway just remux the audio stream, EAC/AC3 with Atmos, no need of decoding or convert it. OR there is mkv muxer script with removing SUP subtitle and adding SRT instead.

Mode 5 - MKV to TS,
Failed to auto-detect SRT encoding : falling back to the active code page
Invalid SRT format. "PG" is invalid timing info
Decoding E-AC3 (DD+) stream (track 2): Bitrate: 538Kbps (core 0Kbps) Sample Rate: 48KHz Channels: 7.1

2. For MP4 muxing from Mode.M4
Only 1 SRT subtitle can be added. Cant add more?
Seems not working on my Hisense for showing subtitle inside.
I Will try with subler for comparison instead, but need a hackintosh for use it. Usually worked for my old HD samsung TV.

I have an Apple TV 4K 2021 and an iPhone 12 Pro Max, so I can help.
I've added profile 8.4 generation based on iPhone 13 RPU samples.

Profile 8.4 L2 tests: https://mega.nz/file/0RMX1I5b#eULlLdOrg ... BRERfgWICw
It might need to be remuxed depending on your device.

Also remade the L2 test file in CM v4.x with the minimum required blocks, so it's still L2 only.
Profile 8.1: https://mega.nz/file/tc0nkBjY#LsBfxDMUh ... EUXe2vjCgg

For profile 8.4 HLG I tested it on my side and it works. I can't see a difference between 8.1 and 8.4 by eye.
FireTV Stick 4K Max (2021, latest update): plays in Dolby Vision, L2 metadata works.
FireTV Stick 4K (2018, old update): plays in HLG, wrong colours.

I've blocked updates on my 2018 stick, so I can't test if it was added.

If anyone wants to test on other devices, feel welcome.

@quietvoid thank you

@box4m
I had the CCWGTV for only a few days and it did play FEL MKVs in PLEX but the problem was that if you FF/RW/resume, the EL went out of sync.
Also, it defaults to LLDV instead of regular TV-LED.

it was a while ago, so it may have been fixed by now.

My TV can not do TV-LED DV anyway so thats not a problem for me.
But the out of sync might be

Maybe someone else will comment on this
Or i will just buy and try

update to the latest version, it sounds like you're using an older version. I did many changes in the mp4muxer mode recently.

1:
-MKV P7 to MP4 (workflows 4-5) now includes SRT subtitles only if present in the source (no more external option). And sorry, I'm not converting PGS to SRT and wont add support for that. In my experience, OCR always needs manual verification.
-MP4 modes are not converting audio if the input contains AC3 or EC3 track.

Mode 5 - MKV to TS:
MKV to TS batch mode is working on my end... did you try the file in tsmuxer? some SRT track wont works sometimes.

Code: Select all

--This workflow will mux up to 13 DoVi MKV to TS, (video / audio / sub)

That's strange, I assume you tried my scripts?
if not then try the mp4muxer P8 modes or nightly tsmuxer.

mmm, L1/L2 is ignored in LLDV... @manix just tested the Shield, x700 and Dune player.
so the LLDV bug is even worse than we thought??

got curious after reading this comment on the nvidia forum:

you have to remux your BD with nightly tsmuxer and then you'll get true DV with m2ts/ts files. The x700 osd will confirm it
https://github.com/justdan96/tsMuxer/releases
I tried the latest version, but it's still not triggering DV. I remuxed as "blu-ray disc". Do I need to change the mux settings?

I guess. Did it work with the previous test version?

We did not test LLDV with the first version but @GREMez comment is about it.

Interestingly, it may be a different problem than the one described in Vincent video because with the Dune player set to LLDV in the display settings(instead of using the vertex), now L1/L2 is working.
There are no LLDV options on the Shield/x700, it can only be forced with an hdfury device or a LLDV TV.

you remuxed as bluray folder and tried to play the m2ts ? that's the problem.
You have to mux your BD straight to TS or M2TS.

This is expected and not a bug then. I don't think the vertex actually processes the input image.
It's supposed to be done by the device.

@GREMez has no l1/l2 response with the shield without using any vertex.

As you said, the Shield doesn't support LLDV.
So the TV expects to receive the preprocessed image as input, which the Shield isn't doing.

At least that's how I understand it.
