Ok – can you give me a link for some 1080P .mkv you have trouble viewing and I will test it.
I will check my videoclips with Mediainfo and post here when I know more…
UPDATE: Movieclips checked with Mediainfo, I cannot see bitrate for The Dark Knight clip but for others I can see it. I only downloaded these clips to test 1080P and the highest bitrate I have in any of the files is 10.1Mbps, this is a .mov file and runs smoothly at 24fps with no dropped frames (trailer for The Watchmen). I don’t have a .mkv file with that high bitrate though to test with – anyone know where to download such a clip?
@Rsaeire: For testing I downloaded the latest version of Media Player Classic Home Cinema and The Dark Knight does not run very well on that one, the clip is jerky and the sound comes and goes.
I am running Media Player Classic version 188.8.131.52 and this one seems better.
The Dark Knight HD-trailers, .mov files, not .mkv. Are these good enough to test with? The trailers I’ve tested with before are .mkv – I’m trying to find the homepage I downloaded them from…
I tested “The Dark Knight” 1080p H.264 mkv file, as mentioned in my last post, using Media Player Classic 184.108.40.206 and CoreAVC Pro 1.8.5 and experienced stuttered playback. I have also tested the 1st “The Dark Knight” 1080p mov trailer from the link you provided, specifically “TDK_TRL2_best.mov”, using Media Player Classic 220.127.116.11 and CoreAVC Pro 1.8.5 and experienced flawless playback, no stuttering or dropped frames.
Using Media Info to view the details of both files, the main difference, besides the file format, is the bitrate. The mov file has a video bitrate of 6.5 Mbps, while the mkv file has a video bitrate of 11 Mbps. This is the only discernible difference I can see that could be causing the stuttered playback, the increased bitrate.
