MKV header compression

MKV header compression   

Postby bigworm » Sat Jul 31, 2010 9:48 am

Is this something b-rad or someone can implement in the firmware or we have to wait for WD ?

Basically a new setting in MKVmerge makes files which the audio does not play on the WDTV and other media players and PS3 etc...

The fix is discussed there, but no info on possibly adding the capability to the firmware..

zero, unless you are skilled with modifying signed & encrypted binaries.

Unfortunately, WD seems more interested in pushing out new versions of the WD device than updating the firmware that runs it.

I agree that it's stupid to do the new header compression, but it's the new 'thing' I guess. PS3 either already got, or will have an update very soon to fix the issue. I heard the XB360 will also be updated very soon. Would be awesome if WD would get it fixed for the WDTV so I don't have to remux everything new I get.

As far as I know, there are mainly two methods to compress video file

Method one: Compress MKV by converting MKV to MP4, AVI, 3GP or other video formats

In the same video quality situation, the MKV file size is much larger than other video formats like MP4. To shrink MKV without loss of video quality, we may convert MKV to MP4, 3GP, AVI and etc. If you do not want to change the video format, you may refer to Method two.

Method two: Shrink MKV by adjusting MKV video bit rate, resolution, frame rate etc

This method helps to resize MKV files to get a good balance of quality and file size. And you may choose to compress MKV as well as keep the MKV as the output video format. You may also choose to shrink and convert MKV to other video format.

If you don't know what you're talking about just shut up.
THis thread is about MKV header compression and has nothing to do with encoding size, quality or codec.
