Similar to the above, the ISO for SW DE 2.7 (the MD5s of which all check out 100%) mounts as a DVD in Windows 10. If I try to play the actual film itself from the menu, it fails. When I manually mount it as a Blu-ray specifically in software, it still fails to play the film. Manually playing the relevant .m2ts fails. Copy the .m2ts out of the ISO and playing it from another location fails.

Apologies for the necropost, but does anybody out here have any ideas?

EDIT: It doesn’t work at all in VLC but it does play (from the beginning anyway) in Leawo… but trying to navigate through the file at all crashes the player so only audio works.

I’m wondering if it has something to do with the sheer number of audio tracks muxed into the film’s .m2ts. I’ll try muxing out some of the audio tracks (languages that aren’t English, for example) and see if that improves compatibility…

EDIT 2: Yep, that was it. If I mux some audio tracks out, it plays fine in VLC (both from .m2ts and after recreating ISO from the smaller .m2ts with fewer tracks). Guess that could be handy if anyone else is having the same problem.

I’m having the same issue. I’ve got the movies and bonus content downloaded and the checksums for the movies check out. Though the movie won’t play on the computer, though the bonus stuff will. On some movie players I’ve tried out, the movie will be a garbage mess, though the default English audio track plays fine when I skip around.

What program are you using to remove the foreign language audio tracks? Also is it possible to also remove the audio files that are used for the Harmy title card and for the menu? I’d prefer that to be silent. Though I wouldn’t mind putting in the disc menu audio from the 2011 Blu-Rays on the disc menu on these. Though I don’t have the new 4K Blu-Rays, so don’t know if the menu audio on those are better.
