"I'm using PowerDVD 18 Ultra. I've done some research, and it won't do 4K without Intel SGX (which is only found in Intel Kaby Lake processors and newer) and HAS to use integrated graphics (so even normal video cards from AMD and…"

UHD Blu-ray playback software

Hi guys,I may need to start doing UHD Blu-rays in the coming months, and I'm currently in "exploratory phase." Right now I'm just buying players, upgrading my gear, and a few commercial discs to get started.Unfortunately, I've discovered that PowerDVD 18 is kind of a mess when it comes to UHD BD support, and won't work on an AMD-based PC. (I literally JUST BUILT myself a new Ryzen Threadripper workstation.) I've heard it also has issues with NVidia GPUs, which is what most people use. So it…See More

"Hi all, I'm using ffmpeg with x264 since a long time for BD authoring without any known issue. I use the pipe function for that. For a 24 fps video: ffmpeg -i VideoIn.mov -f rawvideo -pix_fmt yuv420p - | x264 --demuxer raw  --bitrate…"

"Update: Our first disc with this encoder, despite passing all verification tests, had some major stuttering issues on PS4. Don't use this. Back to the drawing board."

"Thank you very much! I always encode chapter points as I-frames. It's more reliable to jump to right chapter point."

Justin Sevakis replied to Justin Sevakis's discussion Encoding with ffmpeg
"Andreas, it looks like defining chapter points is not possible under ffmpeg. You'll have to do without, I'm afraid (though to be honest, I never bother with this even with x264)."

Justin Sevakis replied to Justin Sevakis's discussion Encoding with ffmpeg
"Yes, I agree, if you're using AVIsynth for IVTC, there's no point to using ffmpeg."

Andreas Gumm replied to Justin Sevakis's discussion Encoding with ffmpeg
"Thanks. BTW, I let AVISynth do the reverse telecine process which works very well."

"480i/29.97 is now verified also... (Below is for 16x9 video, if you need 4x3 change sar=40/33 to sar=10/11, and also field order if necessary) ffmpeg -I input.file -c:v libx264 -pass 1 -b:v XXXXX -tune film -level 41 -g 30 -r 30000/1001 -flags…"

Justin Sevakis replied to Justin Sevakis's discussion Encoding with ffmpeg
"Andreas, fakeinterlaced appears to work, but we're still testing for verification on those. I'll update in a week or so. However, it looks like ffmpeg doesn't pass -pulldown settings properly, so 480p/24 is out. I'm trying to…"
Aug 23, 2018
Andreas Gumm replied to Justin Sevakis's discussion Encoding with ffmpeg
"Sounds good! Is it possible anyhow to define a similar parameter to set "fakeinterlaced" for progressive content? How do you define chapter points? Is it possible to define a timecode list?"
