    Firstly, “huh.. took weeks to reply”… I’m not your personal full-time encoder/muxer, I have a life outside of the internet nor am I an official part of the team behind The Digital Theater, I’m simply a participant who has no obligation to post here.

    Secondly, I or anyone in the threads that I’ve started hasn’t been negative to you in any way. There is no need for you
    to be rude because you didn’t get an encode/mux that works with your specific player.
    I tried to fix the problems that you’re having, however, it is very hard to troubleshoot a problem with a device that I do not have in my possession.

    I believe I’ve found the issues, although, I do not own an OPPO-203 to test my encodes.
    I think the source of the problems is that since I left the extra compression setting in MKVToolNix to “Determine
    automatically” last time I think it chose to add extra compression, therefore, giving the “File is not supported” message that you’ve described.

    I’ve also repackaged the stereo PCM data into a .wav file and then muxed that with the video tracks because previously
    I was muxing the PCM track directly from the ProRes master that comes from the studio for the press. I believe that the
    format that it was in was causing the white noise like audio on the stereo track which I was also able to recreate through my media player hence ruling this out as an issue specifically with the OPPO-203. The OPPO should have no problem decoding PCM because the OPPO supports standard Blu-ray which also supports PCM.

    The ProRes mux contains the original ProRes track that I sourced from the electronic press kit site EPK TV.
    This means that I did not encode this track because it was encoded by the studio, therefore, the problem is not that the video encoding is bad, it’s that
    the OPPO doesn’t support data compression or at least that’s why I’ve hypothesized because I cannot find information on whether the OPPO supports data compression or not.

    My next post will have the things I’ve mentioned fixed.
    I hope this fixes the issues with the 203 and other players that may have a similar issue.
    I will also factor in hardware that can’t decode HEVC by providing an AVC encode for 1080p trailers.

    An OPPO-203 shouldn’t have issues playing this file back unless they’re picky about encode parameters, although, I’m unsure what hardware the 203 uses to decode 4K Blu-ray.

    Do you mind sharing what settings you used to encode this 4GB file?

    Also, I encode with mostly HTPCs in mind. I don’t tune my encodes to play the best on any specific hardware player, however, a 50mbps, 1080p, HEVC stream should be a walk in the park for media players that can decode 4K Blu-ray considering that 4K Blu-ray uses a higher resolution and bit-rate unless it is running into the issue.

    What issue are you having?

    Great, thanks for the studio 5.1. I’ve been looking for official 5.1 tracks ever since I found that Matt Reeves posted 4K ProRes masters with stereo PCM audio for these trailers on his Vimeo page through Vimeo’s download function.
