View Full Version : [Wish] .MKV Profile 5.1 support

Currently BDP5100 supports .mkv up to profile L4.1. Please add support for MKV profile L5.1 and save us the trouble of converting the files ourselves.

I always support enhancements that make our life easier...

But you have to know, that than the firmware need to test if the maximum bitrate is not exceeded. Profile 5.1 was developed (as far as I know) for authoring purposes...

despite the fact MR.Toengel@Alex mentioned, I support to enhance it to L5.1 as we see more and more mkv file are of L5.1 instead of L4.1.

Sorry but I think the poll's answers are biased. There is no option like: No, people should learn to encode properly.

As Toengel@Alex says profile 5.1 is for authoring purposes and the supported resolution and bit rates are higher than 1920x1080p, adding "support" for profile 5.1 would actually mean that the TV should be capable of processing such video contents.

For me the solution would be not to check only profile information (to determine if a file is compatible or not with TV) as we know that this doesn't really give actual indications on the content's resolution, bitrate, etc. but check for these informations inside the file.
