Who has Blu-ray? I suppose some people must - Denaniel for instance - but I don't know anyone who has one or even wants one. Maybe we're all cheapskates where I live .

However, I don't use a DVD player either, I use a very simple method for watching porn - stick it on a USB flashdrive and stick the flashdrive into the side of the TV. No more disk burning for me ha ha! It can play avi, mpeg, mp4 and mkv - though depending on the codec. The only real problem I have with mkv is that I create clip compilations for myself and mkv files are a bugger to edit with any degree of accuracy - despite the claims of many programs. The TV also doesn't play AAC audio. Basically it means conversion is required. It's unfortunate because Denaniel consistently posts outstanding rips of great films but for me a lower-quality avi is the way to go if it is available.

EDIT: When I said AAC I meant to say ac3. Not that it makes a difference, the TV can't play either one lol

I just convert them to avi, because I have difficulty editing 264. It's not that hard to do.

I haven't yet tried it, but this app claims to convert mkv:

I know how to convert and have the tools for it, but converting takes time so if there's a reasonable quality alternative I'll use that. I spend too long as it is mucking about with video files to want to convert more than I have to. Of course there are exceptions for special films or versions and for those I will do whatever is necessary

I have Blu-ray. Actually, I have two Blu-ray players, a Panasonic player and a PS3. Content by purely internet download is still some way off in the future for me, so its cheaper to buy discs.

I can't understand how someone can live without blu-ray today. The quality difference is significant and blu ray players are becoming quite cheap. Though I watch my porn on my computer so I haven't bothered to make my SD stuff blu-ray compliant yet. I also have a Western Digital Live Player that can play most files and upscale to 1080 if need be. 4 Tb of HD porn looks surely better on a ""50...

I have to confess that I don't have a blu-ray player yet. When I first switched from encoding in XviD to x264, I wanted to ensure that my newly encoded vids could play on a standalone player in addition to a PC or Mac. I've since learned that even the MP4 files I've made that are not "blu-ray compliant" will often play on blu-ray players anyway.

The reason for this is that most blu-ray players can not only play commercial blu-ray discs, but also MKV and MP4 files that meet the H.264 standard, e.g. files encoded with x264. Turns out "blu-ray compliant" really means that the compliant file can be used in blu-ray authoring software to compile a standard blu-ray disc for playing in any blu-ray standalone player.

This is equivalent to converting an AVI file to standard DVD format (VOB, IFO and BUP files in a VIDEO_TS folder) for playing in a standalone DVD player. You could convert an AVI file to MPEG-2 to create DVD-compliant files that can be used by DVD authoring software, just as you could use my blu-ray compliant MP4 files in blu-ray authoring software.

But just as many standalone DVD players will also play AVI files, most blu-ray players will also play MP4 files, regardless of whether they are "blu-ray compliant". When I first began encoding in x264, I didn't realize this, and so I made all of my earliest MP4 files to be blu-ray compliant. You could probably convert those MP4 files to standard blu-ray format, but there is really no need to do so.

That's interesting news Denaniel. It probably means my SD x264 stuff in mp4 container could play on stand alone players without me having to to do the proper adjustments to my encoder settings. Though I use my PS3 for blu ray stuff. .and it is probably more picky than newer versatile Blu ray players so I don't expect it to run mp4 files that are not properly ps3 profile encoded.

I made experiments with "Je Suis A Prendre". Thank you for instructions.

1. If I add JeSuisAPrendre_english_audio.mp4 directly to list (h264 + aac filles from original mp4) then size of output file has been increased approx. twice. Morever I received 4 tracks (2 English & 2 French). I got rid of this effect if I extracted aac from JeSuisAPrendre_english_audio.mp4 ( commentary file) and added to list not mp4 file but just aac file.

2. I could not return to main screen by pressing "Back" twice. This method lead me to nowhere and process could be killed only from Windows Task Manager. I pressed button "Finish". Then Yamb asked me if I really want to close application. I press "No" and returned to main screen of Yamb

That's quite easy. After being a victim of HD-DVD, I no longer play around with expensive formats anymore. Plus, I'm not that anal about video quality to the point where a nicely encoded Xvid or DivX will also do the trick.

No, I'm going to have to agree with gordian knot here. Blu ray isn't for everybody.

We seem to disagree what is expensive formats here. I find $2oo for a blu ray player acceptable when you consider what you get in return.
