I was able to rip a UHD-BD to the Harddrive successfully via MakeMKV. Creating a new .mkv-File via MakeMKV worked fine as well and both my UBP-X800 and the Xbox One S played it fine via USB including HDR. Even my Sony Android TV was able to play this .mkv-File successfully via USB from the internal “Movies”-App and it even switched the Picture Mode automaticlly to HDR like on the UBP-X800 and on the XBS1. I’m impressed!
But I have to be honest to you, I was never a fan of playing a DVD/BD from a USB-Stick by creating a .mkv/.mp4 or any other M2TS-Stream as a file only. I’m more the “Old School-Guy” who liked to remove unnecessary Languages, Subtitles and the Main Menu itself, so I always burned the main movie with my prefered Language(s) and Subtitle(s) onto a DVD-R or BD-R and I enjoyed the Movie in High Quality as well while saving my Original Copy. I know that there is probably no difference comparing the Quality from a .mkv-File with a BDMV-Disc but I’m even more dissapointed now because the File Manager from the Xbox One S doesn’t allow to copy such large files onto the internal Harddrive, even when you have the 2TB Lanuch Edition (I have one and it refuses to copy my created .mkv-File with 37.6 GB).
I know, I could connect a external Harddrive or streaming the File via DLNA but since I don’t like this method(s), I tried to burn my Movie, which was ripped via MakeMKV onto a BD-R but it seems that this is way more difficult compared to Standard BD-Movies, since I thought it would be cool to reduce the File Size from the Original files (54.4 GB in my Example), so I could burn it onto a Double-Layer BD-R like on those old CloneDVD days).
So I tried it as always via TSMuxer but I know for myself that the last Update from TSMuxer was from 2014 and I doubt that this recognize 4K Movies properly. I saw from the Disc Structure that 4K Movies and 2K Movies has the same structure and TSMuxer recognized the Movie from my Harddrive as well. It was able to recognize that my Files are encoded in H.265 but there is no HDR and the Audio is Faster than the Video (desynch).
Sorry that this is getting so long but did anyone tried this as well with success? I would appreciate it if someone other could test to burn a UHD-Movie onto a BD-R, so we could find a solution.
Thanks in Advance.
