Ex Machina

Post by Cave Man »

Ripped Ex Machina 4k UHD using the current keys_hashed.txt file in my MakeMKV directory. Funny, though, my 3.2 gHz 6-core i7 Coffee Lake/UHD 630 gpu (8700/Asus BW-16D1HT) struggles playing the rip with VLC for some reason. I would have thought this chip would have handled the file just fine. Passed the file through Handbrake to make an h.264/DTS Passthrough file and VLC handles without any trouble.

VLC has problems with DTS audio.

It seems to handle the DTS audio just fine in the 1080p rip as well as the 4k Handbrake file. Is there something different about the DTS track in the original 4k rip? I only extracted the 5.1 DTS audio from the 7.1 DTS-MA.

VLC 3.0 should be out soon. It's much more robust than 2.2. You can download a nightly build if you can't wait. This file is the newest one as of this writing but obviously that'll change in a few hours.

Thanks, I will give it a try. Does it also handle HDR ok?

As recommended in the FAQ thread, http://mpv.io

Cross platform, handles high resolution audio better than VLC, has tone mapping for HDR.
