i have very little skill and no good software

MakeMKV converts DVDs/AVCHDs/BDs to MKV.

AVI2DVD converts MKVs to DVD format

DVD Shrink drops the file size to DVD5 (if you tell it to)

ImgBurn burns the data to a disc.

 

oh... and Handbrake encodes nearly any movie format to MKV/M4V, while dropping the file size to a managably portable/streamable size without greatly reducing picture quality.

 

All of these programs are free.

Also tsMuxer which is free as well.

I don't suppose anyone has any suggestions for doing this on a Mac do they? I recently made the (mistaken?) decision to switch to Mac and I feel like I've lost limbs in the transition. 

m2ts is not my format of choice because VLC on Mac refuses to stream subtitles with m2ts - and I am afraid converting the file will introduce picture artifacts that defeat the whole point of Harmy's hard work. Won't it?

You can remux the file to whatever container you like without conversion i.e. without quality loss.

I've had some issues playing M2TS on MPlayer2, but usually they are resolved - including the visibility of subs - by converting losslessly to mkv using mkvmerge.

Well, I finally grabbed the 2.0 release to see what initial improvements there were over the HDTV version.  Overall it looks pretty promising, though I'm not sure about some of the skin colors in the dessert scenes, but considering how much work you've done since then, I'm sure the colors will be exactly as they should be.

One thing I just noticed, though, which may need to be looked into, about 7 seconds into the start of the cantina scene, I heard something weird in the rear right audio channel (EDIT: looks like it is in front and rear right channels), it sounds kind of like a person accidentally recorded himself talking for a second.  Am I crazy or does this stick out to anyone else?

EDIT 2: Looks like it is in at least 3 of the audio tracks, so I guess it is supposed to be there, but it still sounds out of place in a way...

Oh, and if anyone could toss a new myspleen invite my way, I'd greatly appreciate the PM.  Thanks.

May I request a myspleen invite too, please? This looks like incredible work.

Thanks for the invites guys, it is nice to be prepared for Harmy's sure to be amazing release.  And with how little there's probably left to be done on the community input side of things to help Harmy get ready at this point, it isn't too over the top to expect for a page or two of comments to be taken over by spleen invites, the excitement is just palpable, I think.

If the Empire thread gets taken over by such requests, that's where I'd draw a line, since that's likely to be the next happenin' place with lots of valuable input to be had.

Anyway, very excited here, I can't wait to see how Harmy can possibly improve over the 2.0, the de-midichlorian'd Force is strong with him.

Thanks for keeping us updated Harmy, we eagerly await the results of your hard work.

As for the eventual BD, you say that you'll release the M2TS and the BD structure separately, my question about that is multi-layered, firstly is that due to alleviating confusion or just lessening how much has to be downloaded for those wanting .mkv?  If it is about space, then I'd like to inquire how large of a BD you're planning to encode?  I remember you talking about including many fantastic bonus features, but I'm not sure where you landed on including them on each feature release or as one supplemental BD at the end, etc.  Mostly wondering if I should prepare for burning a BD-25 or BD-50.

Also, with your most recent semester over, are you planning to jump into ESB hardcore, while there are less distractions, or take a [deserved] break and pace yourself?
