7.1 DTS MKV to AAC 1536 7.1 MP4 Audio Conversion comes out choppy when using Windows 10 Pro Cast To

Post by Kyioto »

Description of problem or question:

I have tried a couple times to transform a couple MKV files from blu ray discs that I own to stream to my Samsung without needing to take the disc out using windows Cast To feature. The feature works great when I transform the file using 1920 X 1080 using the 5.1 DTS 1536 bitrate mixed down to AAC 1536 5.1 channels. However when I try to use the included 7.1 DTS option on the file or any files that contain 7.1 and do a DTS pass through
or decode to 1536 7.1 channels on AAC the sound covers over as choppy especially after you skip to another part of the mp4 file.


Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):

1. Choose MKV Source File with 7.1 DTS encoded
2. Summary > Format :MP4
3. Set dimensions to 1920 X 1080
4. Anamorphic – None; Modulus = 2 Cropping: Automatic
5. Filters: All Off – 0 Rotate
6. Video Codec: H.264 (X264); Framerate: Same as Source; Constant Quality: 22;
Constant Frame Framerate; 2 pass encoding & Turbo First pass checked
Encoder Turne: Film; Fast Decode unchecked; Encoder Profile: High; Encoder Level: 4.1
Advanced options: ref=5:bframes=5
7. Audio: English (DTS-HD MA) (7.1 ch) Codec Mixed down to AAC Bitrate 1536 7.1 channels sample rate auto DRC & Gain both 0
8. Subtitles: None
9. Chapters: Default
10. Start Encode
11. Encode Finishes
12. Right click on MP4 choose Cast To
13. Select Samsung Device (which connects to Yamaha RX-A870BL receiver) This receiver is DTS 5.1and 7.1 compatible and works just fine with 5.1 decoded mp4 files at 1536


HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):

1.3.3 (2020061300)

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Windows 10 Pro 64-Bit Version 2004 OS Buld 19041.508

Re: 7.1 DTS MKV to AAC 1536 7.1 MP4 Audio Conversion comes out choppy when using Windows 10 Pro Cast To

Are you sure your Cast To will even pass 7.1 AAC?
If not, it needs to downsample in real time, which accounts for your playback issue.

Not sure. I know have tried using DTS HD MA and DTS pass through 7.1 but 7.1 doesn't get recognized and Handbrake defaults the encode to 2 channel stereo
