    A question.

    I want to burn a 1920x1080 25 frame rate to bluray.

    I have attempted BD to AVC. Multi AVCHD (which wouldn't play in my Sony UBP-X800) and ripbot264.

    The discs that playback do so at 1080/50.

    What causes this? The Sony player or is there something I'm missing?

    Would write files/folders to disc via IMG Burn solve the problem?

    Are you talking about burning to a blu-ray disc? If so, there's no reason to do anything to change the resolution or the format of the original video.

    However, a 25 fps is PAL. If the region of your player is set to NTSC, you would have to change it to play PAL. You can change it up to 5 times but, the next time you change it it would be permanent. If you want to check it, go here-

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/5oo902exn1yrntq/Nero11infotool-11.0.00500.exe?dl=0

    Download and install the file. Then, run it. You can skip the drive tests. Open the Drive section, select your drive and take a screenshot. Attach the screenshot here. This assumes the drive is attached to your computer.

    To do a PAL to NTSC conversion, you could use something like this-

    I use Nero Video but it's not free.

    "I want to burn a 1920x1080 25 frame rate to bluray."

    What format is the source in? Is it on disc or is it in a portable format such as MP4?

    The source is an MKV. I omitted that from my original post.

    I'm playing back the resulting disc on a Sony UBP X-800.

    I'll trial Nero Video. I'm not attempting to convert from pal to ntsc. It's my Sony 4k Player that's playing it back to 50fps.
    When I play the file on my laptop, it plays at 24.

    Nero Video threw up an error "Burn process failed with status 3"

    According to the specs of your BD player it can play MKV. So is your problem burning the file to a BD disc? The structure of a Blu-Ray format is not dependent on the disc, meaning a Blu-Ray movie can be compressed to fit on a standard DVD recordable, and a BD player will recognize it as a BD disc. If your MKV files is able to fit on a DVD single or dual layer that might be a good place to start. Blu-Ray is a structure more than a physical outcome and if you're playing a portable format off of a disc, then the physical media format probably won't matter. So try burning the file to DVD media as a data file and then let's see if your player can recognize it.

    If you're using a trial version of Nero Video, it won't likely burn a MKV. Certain formats such as mp4, etc. which require licensing to use, require a paid version.

    That said, the "status 3" error is a generic error at the end of the log file for the burn. I would need to see the whole log to determine the real problem. We can do that later, if necessary.

    Would you mind uploading your .mkv to a cloud service such as dropbox, one drive, wetransfer, etc.; share it; get a link and post the link here?
