    I ripped my tv shows to MKV and they don't play.

    I decided to rip my tv show dvds and have available on a DLNA server and then I bought the BDP 5200/12 and thought I would be able to play all my ripped files. I chose to rip it in MKV so I could have subtitle and multiple audio tracks. It plays for half a second and then stops.

    here is some kind of a transcript from mediainfo

    is there something that I missed? Is there some obvious reason the blu-ray player doesn't play these files?

    Dearest regards

    Hi,

    is your player updated to the latest firmware (see support webpage). Does the MKV work, if you play it via USB connected HDD?

    I just updated to the latest firmware, no change in playability. It does not play from USB or DLNA. None of the shows / movies I ripped recently (using Handbrake) to MKV work.

    I just thought MKV is the most decent container, since it can house much more than AVI and M4V, this way I can just keep storing my DVD's in boxes and just have the ripped version on the DLNA server.

    Is there maybe something simple I can fix with MKVmerge? hopefully I don't have to re-rip all this stuff.

    Sincerely,

    Hallur Orn

    Hi,

    I don't know - but the framerate is VERY strange... Maybe, the BDP cannot cope with variable framerates. Try a file with fixed framerate.

    I do have another file that is 25 frames that doesn't work either. Maybe the framerate is funky because I used detelecine on it when ripping, it seemed to help get rid of some of those overly interlaced frames.

    You sir are a genius! Thank you! I DO have to re-rip all my Harvey Birdman collection, but at least I know what the problem is...I never thought to look at the framerate setting in Handbrake. I set it to constant and re-ripped one episode, works like a charm now.

    Noticed this myself too.
    If framerate is variable BDP5200 wont play it
    Either mp4 or mkv.
    Too bad since i have ripped pretty much hundreds of video files with that setting.

    There is no real reason (hardware/software) why variable framerate could not be played.
    Just a piece of code in firmware which the player interprets "not supported format"

    I concider this as a bug and hoping it will be corrected.

    Not sure, this is pretty standard, no?
    Read through Samsung's spec table- they have almost the same requirement for frame rate.
