    Thank you very much. I do try. :-D

    Yes, basically Blu-ray is a format built upon AVCHD. As we've discussed, Blu-ray has a wider specification and has larger mandatory codec support.

    I'm sorry but I can't help you there. My Blu-ray player is a PS3.

    I agree with LOCOENG. Ryu's been very helpful.:)Thanks for your answers thus far.
    Yeah, I guess what's fully playable in a PS3 is not necessarily compatible with all BD players. The PS3 is the ultimate multimedia machine no doubt. Nevertheless, in the meantime I will prepare some tiny samples, post them (assuming it's Ok with Mods) and hopefully some other kind folk who has just an "ordinary" BD player can report back.:)

    Ryu77,
    Is there a way to merge two video files? Some of the D/Ls I have come in part 1 and part 2, just wondering if I can make them in to one file.

    Ryu77 thanks for this great thread. I've been searching the web for a couple weeks and this is by far the most comprehensive collection of HD back-up info available. All your responses in other threads have been very informative.

    I'm in the process of buying a PS3 (40Gb) and upgrading my computer (I currently have a E6600 OC'd to 3.2ghz) and I want to make 720p DVD's playable on my PS3 from 4.4gb mkv files, which are readily available on the web.

    From my understanding all the mkv files need to transcoded/re-encoded to play. And the transcoding process makes the files slightly larger and won't fit on a DVD5. So they need to re-encoded at lower bitrate, which takes hours. Am I right so far? Has anyone tried to overburn the trancoded files on to a DVD+R? They can typically hold 4.6gb. LINK

    Alternately, if the overburning doesn't work. What type of computer system do you recommend for the conversion process? I have a core 2 duo now, but I'm considering a Q6600, E8400 or Q9450. Does the re-encoding programs take advantage of SSE4 and the quad core? And how long does it take a 2 hour movie to re-encode.

    thanks again.

    I aquired a copy of Scenarist myself. I gave it a try by following the user guide that came with it, only to find out I did something wrong along the way. It really seems like a lot of work just to get subs on to a 720p movie. I think this is a little beyond my understanding at this point. It does however look like a really good authoring program that I would like to utilize at some point.

    Please let me know how your project went, I am curious to see if everything worked out for you.

    Go quad core! Using Nero recode it takes about 2-4 hours to recode a 2 hour movie. No hiccups while running other apps either.

    I thought that the steps were quite self explanatory. I have started a MeGUI guide which I hope to extend to a full guide explaining the above conversion in more detail. The only problem is I am working many hours lately. I recently made a career change. I am now working in a large Audio/Visual electrical appliance store and I am dedicating all of my energy to becoming the best that I can in my new choice of career. In my first 2 weeks in the store (having never worked in a retail electrical appliance store before) I have sold about $75,000 worth of A/V equipment myself. So needless to say, I can see a bright future here and that is certianly my highest priority at the moment.

    I will continue to work on a guide in my spare time but I can't give any indication as to when I might complete this. I actually have a day off tomorrow for the first time in a while, so I plan to have a good crack at my guide tomorrow. I can not guarantee it's completion though. I'm sorry if this disappoints you but I also feel that given a little patience and dedication that you should be able to complete the above process without photos. Instead of looking for a guide, you could also try doing research on each of the applications I have mentioned. That way you could become familiar with each individual application and that inherently will make your efforts a much smoother process.

    Hello,

    I have some Region A concert Blu-ray discs that I want to watch in my Region B PS3. Can I achieve that using one of these methods?

    Thanks!
