I am not sure what genius app you are referring to, but I have had good luck playing BDMV folders, including 4k with Dolby Vision, by putting them under an AVCHD folder with my Oppo 203 player. I am not sure why 3D would be any different in this regard. I dont have a 3 D TV so can't try this, though I do have a few 3D discs I can try with.I tried this briefly earlier today using both sets of ISO and they do work So now i have a way to extract the DVD-Audios and also as a SACD backup to ISO2DSD which isn't 100% reliable. Thanks all!
Now...for my next quandary on my attempt to play 100% of my backups on the 205: the ultra tricky 3D blu-ray. Sure there's ISO, but does anyone know a way to play BDMV 3D folders? Yes you can "MakeMKV "it (and then you need to convert that to m2ts for Oppo play)...but i prefer the entire thing with all the extras etc. Plus my discerning eyes in a compare tell me the MKV version loses some of the depth... Anyway, of course a regular BDMV folder can be made to play with that genius app someone came up with...but anyone figure out how play do a 3D version successfully?
DVDAE will read the DVDA ISO file structure if you first open the ISO in Windows Explorer (double click on the ISO in Windows Explorer). You can then use the DVDAE option to Open Files, navigate to the opened ISO which gets a temporary drive letter.DVD-Audio extractor for one doesn't read ISO as source
Some devices can’t do multichannel but most do. Have you set the Kodi audio output to ‘HDMI Passthrough’ and ‘Number of Channels’ to 5.1? For bitstreaming DTS and Dolby you need to set those to options on in Kodi audio settings and in Video settings set the sync option to sync screen to video input.I actually do have a couple that should work....Himedia Q10 Pro and Zidoo X9s...
Yes. Indeed. I rip all my blurays 4k & otherwise to disc with the their full directory structures via makemkv. They can be played back on several of the Android based players or PC based ( NUCs or otherwise). On PCs, MPC-HC, Kodi or VLC work well.I believe you can rip the entire BD to its unprotected disk folder/file structure and play it back from a hard drive with Kodi media player software using the disc menus, but I’ve not tried.
Kodi can run on many devices from PCs to tiny SOCs.
I just bought a new Odroid N2 from South Korea (about 130 USD incl shipping) which runs Kodi and supports 4K/1080p video and Atmos/DTS-HDMA Passthrough via HDMI. It arrives on Monday so will post here on QQ once it’s up and running. It’s also got a good stereo DAC built in.
There’s another interesting device coming in August: Khadas VIM3 that will also run Kodi it’s more expensive but comes completely built, minus a case and power supply. I’m probably going to buy that too, just to check it out. That could be the killer media player as no assembly of internals.
