Remux MKV to single layer Dolby Vision


Recommended Posts


Just posting this for info - as it's something I wasn't aware of and may be useful to others.

As you may be aware, there is no way to currently play dual layer DV files (those with a primary 4K HEVC and a secondary 1080p HEVC DV stream in them) via emby - however ..

Using MakeMKV v1.15.4 you can actually remux these previous Dual Layer Dolby Vision MKV's into a 'single layer' maintaining the DV information 👍

These appear to play perfectly on the Shield 2019 with the latest Emby Beta client.

Just use the MKV as the input file for MakeMKV and the resulting file will  then be playable with DV - this is probably quicker than re-ripping the original media.
