@Adm. Kirk: Compare - you'll copy the MD5 checksum from the 1st post and then compare it with your file. I was introduced to this concept recently myself but it really is very useful for this stuff.

 

Okay--through MD5, the checksum for the file is e52cc005e48931ef3df336361dd1a142, which is identical to the one that's in the first post.

I am now officially lost--and my head is spinning!  :-)

Then it's probably a bad download. There are checksums in the first post, so you can try to use this to generate an MD5 checksum from your MKV to see if you have the correct, uncorrupted file.

 

I'll give it a whirl--never done this before!

In MD5, do I choose "Get a Checksum of a file" or do I choose "Compare file with checksum"?

Thanks!  :-)

Well, then something must have gone wrong during your conversion, because the ESB and SW MKVs are identical in terms of format.

I kind of figured. :-(

At one point I stopped the process in mid-conversion and had a partially completed m4v file for STAR WARS--roughly the first 9 minutes of the movie, and on a whim, I tested it out. It loaded into iTunes just fine--but of course, it was just the first 9 minutes. Then, when I went back in to convert the whole movie as a whole, I once again ran into the same problem I've been having all along.  The m4v version, upon completion of conversion, seems to be unplayable. 

I'm thinking something in the original files is somehow corrupted or damaged, but I wouldn't be able to figure out what it is, or how to fix it.

Well, if you had to use handbrake to recode it, it wasn't compatible.

 

But I used HandBrake to convert THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK into an m4v file, and there was no problem loading it into iTunes and then playing it through AppleTV.

I wouldn't be able to load an MKV file into iTunes for play on AppleTV, so no matter what, I have to do the conversion.

My main question is, how come it's not working when I do it with STAR WARS V2.5?

That's all I'm trying to find out.  :-)

Hi!

First time poster here, I just joined. Harmy, your work on these Despecialized Editions is mind-blowing. Congratulations--and many thanks.

Here's a couple of technical questions. I have a Mac OSX  Version 10.9.4.

I just downloaded STAR WARS version 2.5 and EMPIRE. 

I used HandBrake to convert both to mv4 files, with all of the various English audio tracks. 

I was able to load TESB into iTunes with no problem, and watched it on AppleTV. It worked great. 

But for some reason, STAR WARS 2.5 will not load into iTunes. Is anyone else having this problem? If so, how did you solve it?

Also--when I try to play EMPIRE in 5.1 sound, I only get standard stereo through the two front speakers and the subwoofer. Would anyone happen to know why? 

I appreciate the help!

Many thanks.
