I might do some slight modifications to the DVD case images so they fit in a bluray case. If so I’ll share with everyone.

I took the DVD case art and resized it to fit a bluray (also swapped the DVD logo out and added a bluray logo). There’s basically just a bunch of extra blank space now, but at least it will fit a bluray case properly.

Sorry for the rush job on this. Please let me know if anybody does a better one later.

For those with trouble getting the Bluray to play, even after checking that SEI\VUI setting, I have a solution for you.

I took the m2ts file out of the BDMV\Stream folder that tsmuxer creates and ran it through AVCHDCoder (also shrinking the file ever so slightly so it fits on a disc). For me, that disc still didn’t play in one of my bluray players, but after I ran the m2ts file AVCHDCoder outputed through tsmuxer again, everything is great!

I assume I lost some quality by having AVCHDCoder re-encode the video, but I looked very closely and can’t tell the difference myself.

I can’t stress how happy I am with your edit! It’s well worth the time (and extra discs) it took me to figure out how to play it. 😃

I’m glad I didn’t remove the alternate language tracks because I’m listening to your commentary now and quite enjoying it. You do a great job of explaining why you made the choices you did (like keeping the virgin birth scene)

I loved your edit of the movie too, it will definitely be my go-to version for watching. The only thing I didn’t like was the deleted scene you re-added. Your comment about how you did it for pacing makes sense - the only reason I don’t like it is teh picture quality is slightly worse, and the CGI of Anakin’s buddy is really poor.

I’m really looking forward to your takes on Episodes 2 & 3. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to wait for V4’s, or if I’ll dive in soon on the V3’s.

“Do not change SEI and VUI data” in tsmuxer.

I had the same issue (with V4 of Ep1). I followed the tip and my bluray now works on my computer and one of my 2 bluray players (strangely it’s my old player that has no issue).

The resulting file is slightly too large for my disc, but I burned it anyway. It failed when it got to the end of my disc space, but it still plays (freezing with 1.5 minutes of credits left at the end).

Thanks for the quick response. Turns out I have V3 of all 3 episodes. Pretty good, but knowing that there is a V4 for episode 1, I want it!

I went to fanedit.info and am now using jdownloader to get V4 of episode 1. It’s coming way faster than the torrent did so I regret not doing that in the first place.

I’m also ordering bluray writer for my computer so I’ll be able to copy them all to disc and play them anywhere. Is anybody aware of any guides on how to do that? Preferably with free software.

I plan on re-watching all the Star Wars movies in anticipation of episode VII. Seems like most people agree that your versions are the way to go (and then the despecialized versions of the OT).

I have a few questions though:

  1. Is there an easy way to identify which versions I have? I recently downloaded the 21GB 1080p versions from a popular torrent site, but now I’m afraid they are outdated. By the sounds of it, maybe I should re-download episode 1 through the link from fanedit.info, and then wait a couple of weeks for your updated episode 2 and 3’s (and maybe watch the V3’s depending on when V4’s are released).
  2. Do you recommend watching in episode order (1,2,3,4,5,6) or something like 4,5,1,2,3,6? The advantage of the second is it gives me more time to wait for your V4’s of 2 and 3.
  3. I found cover art in case I want to burn to disc. They all say “DVD” on the case art though, are you aware of any bluray artwork?

Thanks!
