That I did not expect. So in order for me to go from a film-based 23.9 Hz mkv to BD using the available tools, I must lose the native frame rate?
That would seem to defeat the whole purpose. Just like I wouldn't want to lose the new DTS 5.1 lossless track, I would not want to discard the original frame rate.
I know it appears that 47.9 is roughly twice the 23.9 frame rate and I know that there are other cases when working with video-based encoding that the difference between 30 and 60 Hz is not a problem, but I just don't know how my Blu-Ray player will handle a film-based BD that is not coded at 23.9 Hz.
So, then regarding my choppy playback and erratic chapter skipping, is this also normal when reviewing a Blu-Ray disc in VLC? How do I know my iso is not damaged?
Also, will my actual Blu-Ray player (set top box) still report the 23.9/24 Hz playback with the disc I create?
