I am new to the ripping/encoding thing. But, have managed to rip Thor bluray successfully using DVD fab to an m2ts file. From what I’ve read so far I could do that and shrink that 29G file down to something a lot smaller using Handbrake. So I took my m2ts file (which plays fine on my WDTVLiveHub fine), ran it through the HB high profile setting pretty much leaving most if not all in the default settings and shrank to a 6+Gb mkv. It starts, then freezes at the Paramount intro. I tried the same thing using MakeMKV to a 29G mkv (which also plays fine), then used HB again…same result.
I’ve tried searching the forum and others to find an answer but haven’t found anything that seems to mirror my particular situation. I’m sure it’s probably been discussed. So, if anyone found point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated. Thx.
