Any alternatives to tsmuxer for losslessly converting a mkv to BD iso?

I’ve been running into a lot of problems with tsmuxer flat-out not working lately and I was wondering if anyone has experience with alternatives. I’m trying to put ESB Revisited and Hal’s edits on BD and not having much luck. Adywan’s converts to an iso just fine but shows no video when I play it on my PS4 (audio works fine). Hal’s TFA edit just stops at 90% due to an undisclosed error.

I can tell you exactly why for Revisited:

It’s not 1280x720 or 1920x1080. That is, the letterboxing is cropped off, but Blu-Ray format requires a full 1920x1080 or 1280x720 frame size, so black bars are necessary.

In other words, you can’t burn ESB:R to disc without reencoding.

As for Hal’s edits, even the full 1920x1080 versions don’t play nice with BD format and never have. I gave up trying a long time ago. Something to do with Hal making them on a Mac - there are a couple solutions that have worked for some people, but I’ve never been successful.

facepalm Don’t know why I didn’t think of that. Thanks. I just assumed it was blu-ray complaint for some reason.

I’m still not sure what’s going on with Hal’s but maybe I should just bite the bullet and re-encode.

I remember people saying something about checking or unchecking a box about inserting SEI value or something like that. But like I said, that didn’t work for me when I tried it and I got sick of making coasters.

Good luck!

A bit late to the party but I’ve had errors with the latest release of TS Muxer doing weird things to certain videos. I reverted to version 1.12.3 and it solved my issue.
