Converting Blu Ray Rips from VC-1 to H264

Post by MrBfJohn »

Description of problem or question:
I'm trying to convert a bunch of blu ray files I ripped in MKV format, as they're in a VC-1 format, which my new Firestick 4K can't play. The fire stick CAN play the H264 blu ray rips I have, so I was hoping to do a near as possible like for like conversion. They all have the usual HD audio tracks or high bitrate PCM, as well as lower quality DD and DTS audio tracks.
I tried converting a movie using a slightly modified version of one of the 1080p presets, but the file size dropped from 23.2GB down to 6GB, and all the audio tracks were converted to AC3.
Obviously I messed up :lol: , but I'm not sure where.
Could anyone possibly point me in the right direction?
Thanks in advance.
John.

Re: Converting Blu Ray Rips from VC-1 to H264

Post by Woodstock »

Your audio is pcm_s16le, which is not a supported pass-through codec; it was converted to the fallback codec for your installation (AC3).

If I can't keep the PCM as it is, could it possibly be converted to Dolby True HD or DTS Master HD to retain the audio quality?

Nope. In HandBrake, your only option for lossless audio is FLAC.

There is no GPL-compatible TrueHD nor DTS-HD MA encoder that I know of, so those two options are out.

No, the only lossless encoder currently supported is FLAC, and a lot of playback environments do not support FLAC.

I see. Looks like I'll have to try different options. Thanks for the clarification though :D
