Did you notice we’re tralking about the Gen2 (ready my lips: Gen two)
Did you notice I offered a solution to the Gen2 issue? Instead of waiting for WD to fix it?
And if you’re encoding the files yourself, knowing that it won’t play with compressed headers, but still compressing the headers, then that seems like just pure stupidity.
“Gee this last one won’t work 'cuz I compressed the headers… maybe if I compress them in this next one it will work… nope… maybe the next one?.. nope…”
It just seems logical that the people who complain about having a mountain of “broken” files, and more and more showing up every day, are downloading encodes that others have made, as opposed to encoding the files themselves.
But where the files come from is rather irrelevant as to whether the issue can be worked around. The fix works just as well with legit files as it does with pirated files.
I never said any of mine were pirated. The difference is, once I’d made an encode with a new version of mkvmerge and it didn’t work, I found out why it wasn’t working and stopped making them that way. I never ended up with a mountain I had to fix… but even if I had, they could all be re-muxed in minutes.
The same fix for the Gen1 will work for the Gen2. Thus it’s relevant to issues users are having with their Gen2.
