I totally get how this is great for everybody that's not using it with a full surround sound setup, but like you said, not a perfect solution for me.Grencola wrote: ↑Thu Mar 14, 2019 2:02 amthat's correct. once you rip the full valerian disc contents (not mkv) go into its dir and put the largest .m2ts file from \bdmv\streams\ into its own folder. then run my app and point it to that folder and click install. wait about 1h15m ish. that's it. you'll be able to play the new mp4 directly from your TV's usb port via usb exfat hdd, or with the plex app (recommended for better gui) right on your tv streaming from your computer (direct play / direct stream on). both should be in DV and look just like playing the disc on your oppo. the audio will be downmixed to dd ac3 5.1. I'm not sure about about emby but give it a go for sure and let me know.
this is all obviously just a fun experiment though as it's a pointless process for you since you can just take a uhd disc and pop it in your udp-203 and get DV / hd-audio, rather than put it into your computer to rip and convert and then play with worse audio :p or if you were to rip it to the full folder structure of the disc, that too can be played in your oppo in DV / hd-audio :p
this is for people who can't afford an Oppo (especially now, my goodness). they either own an LG or Vizio TV with a non-atmos AVR. so adding DV while losing the atmos they never had anyway is a nice step up for a lot of people
I may have an Oppo, but I rarely put an actual disc in it. I usually use it for troubleshooting when I run into a problematic rip. Emby is a lot like plex, though I like it much better than plex. For me, I have a lot more flexibility and setup/browsing options with Emby and it's much easier to navigate the server interface than Plex. Where I like Plex better is if I'm actually streaming to my ipad/phone/etc...
I haven't even bothered with folder rips for DV yet. To my understanding, a folder rip is basically exactly like using a physical disc? Menus and all, correct? One of my main theater goals is to keep it as streamlined as possible. Browse my collection on the Emby phone app, hit play for a given movie, and the movie (just the movie) starts direct playing via DLNA. Wish Oppo had left their OS open for third party apps. Would be great to browse and play all straight from the remote. On well...
I am going to give a few go folder rips a try. I have a handful of atmos movies (seemless branching tracks... Mostly disney) that have lots of audio dropouts. Folder rip might be the best option. I might do the same for select DV discs as well.
Thanks for the feedback!
