Constant image size/constrast adjusting throughout movie playback.

Whenever I play blu ray dvds off my playstation 3 on my Philips 32inch 720p, the picture constantly adjusts throughout the movie (every minute or 5 minutes) and the contrast does the same. Any help is greatly appreciated.

To remove region code on Maxmade blu-ray player so I can play both DVDs and B-Rs which I have bought from various regions


Actually, you can use a Free and all-sided Blu-ray Player which can play Blu-ray/DVD disc, folder or ISO on Windows & Mac.

Leawo Blu-ray player acts like hardware Blu-ray player to play Blu-ray discs, folders and ISO files on PC to enhance your Blu-ray movie experience. As a region free Blu-ray player software program, it could help you easily play back the latest released Blu-ray discs without quality loss. It's also a free DVD player to play back DVD discs/folders, an ISO player to directly play back ISO files, a free video player to play up to 1080P HD videos and a free audio player to play even DTS-5.1 audio in lossless quality. During playback, this professional Blu-ray player software allows you to select/load subtitles and adjust video and audio. It even provides detailed playback navigation to let you fully control media playback.

Just for suggestion. Hope it helps. :)

How to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies to QuickTime Player compatible format on...



bdrippermac_quicktime_20100430.jpg

Apple has detailed it clearly on its official site that QuickTime will attempt to open files with file extensions associated with audio or video formats listed as below:

Video formats:
QuickTime Movie (.mov), MPEG-4 (.mp4, .m4v), MPEG-1, 3GPP, 3GPP2, AVI, DV

Audio formats:
iTunes Audio (.m4a, .m4b, .m4p), MP3, Core Audio (.caf), AIFF, AU, SD2, WAV, SND, AMR

More than that, QuickTime can play movies using the following codecs:

Video Codecs:
MPEG-4 (Part 2), H.264, H.263, H.261, Apple ProRes, Apple Pixlet, Animation, Cinepak, Component Video, DV, DVC Pro, Graphics, Motion JPEG, Photo JPEG, Sorenson Video 2, Sorenson Video 3

Audio Codecs:
AAC (MPEG-4 Audio), HE-AAC, Apple Lossless, MP3, AMR Narrowband, MS ADPCM, QDesign Music 2, Qualcomm PureVoice (QCELP), IMA 4:1, MACE 3:1, MACE 6:1, ALaw 2:1, ULaw 2:1, 24-Bit Integer, 32-Bit Integer, 32-Bit Floating Point, 64-Bit Floating Point

Obviously, Blu-ray (.m2ts) and DVD (.vob) are out of the above mentioned range. Even though you purchase QuickTime MPEG-2 Playback Component from online Apple Store and install it on your Mac, it is still unable to play commercial DVDs (such as Hollywood movies), because they are usually encrypted with special CSS anti-piracy technology, not to mention the much more strictly protected Blu-ray movies. However, that doesn’t means you are totally banned to watch Blu-ray and DVD movies in QuickTime. Actually, an available Blu-ray and DVD ripper for Mac will definitely do you a favor to remove copy protections, and rip the movies to a Mac QuickTime Player compatible format. Go to find a step-by-step tutorial about how to convert Blu-ray and DVD movies to Mac QuickTime Player supported format.

The decryption software we recommended is Pavtube Blu-Ray DVD Ripper for Mac. It is an independent and professional utility to rip both Blu-ray discs and general DVDs to your wanted HD or SD media formats. With full Blu-ray disc support, it is able to remove copyright protections of your BD disc, no matter BD+, or AACS, even the latest MKB V17 is supported as well. See the detailed tutorial as below.

Step 1: Free download, install and launch this blue ray ripper Mac.
Once you run it, click "BD/DVD Folder" or "IFO File" to load your BD or DVD files.

bdrippermac_total_20100430.jpg

Step 2: Select H.264 Video (*.mp4) as output format for QuickTime
Follow "Common Video" > "H.264 Video (*.mp4)":
bdrippermac_format_20100430.jpg

Step 3: Click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters
Notice that which parameter to select has close relationship with the hardware configurations of your computer, so before your adjustment, read the following info attentively.

To play HD video, a large amount of data must be processed by your computer. A powerful system will deliver the best playback quality.
Recommended hardware configurations for H.264 HD playback on Macintosh:

For 1280x720 (720p) video at 24-30 frames per second:
[*]1.8 GHz PowerMac G5 or 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo or faster Macintosh computer

[*]At least 256MB of RAM
[*]64 MB or greater video card

For 1920x1080 (1080p) video at 24 frames per second:
[*]Dual 2.0 GHz PowerMac G5 or 2.0 GHz Intel Core Duo or faster Macintosh computer
[*]At least 512MB of RAM
[*]128MB or greater video card

Now you are ready to set advanced settings according to the hardware configurations of your computer. Our computer satisfies the above mentioned "1280x720 (720p) video at 24-30 frames per second", so we changed the settings as below:

bdrippermac_settings_20100430.jpg

Step 4: Click "Convert" button to start Mac Blu-ray ripping.
Once the ripping task is completed, you can click "Open" button to get the output H.264 .mp4 videos for your QuickTime Player effortlessly. Have fun.

Replys no disc while operating


- Disc is not burned in the ISO 9660 Joliet format.
- The movie encoded using some incompatible DivX settings. Philips DVD players does not play movies encoded in 720p or 1080p HD format.
- There should be some dust accumulated over the laser pickup. Use a CD lens cleaner.
- Rarely, the transport mechanism could be facing some fault moving the laser head to-fro. This requires opening the box and taking a peek inside.

Watch Blu-ray and DVD movies on Palm Pre Plus with your desired file size


One feature of smart phones is that enables users to play back digital video and audio on the go, here we just focus on the newly released Palm Pre Plus. This little device has a vivid and bright capacitive touch screen, which is made out of hard plastic, although not as good as glass, holds up fine. The screen is 3.1 inch, at 320 x 480 pixels, with multitouch capabilities. Besides this, Palm Pre Plus has doubled internal memory from 8GB to 16GB, so you can store more videos, music, and photos on it, and access them whenever and wherever at will.
To enjoy Blu-ray and DVD movies on the Pre Plus, two things you need consider: firstly, the file format, secondly, the capacity of your device. First off, let’s see the Pre Plus supported file formats:
Playback Digital Video Formats: H.264, MPEG-4, H.263 video and AMR audio
Supported Digital Audio Standards: AAC, AMR, MP3, WAV, AAC +, eAAC+
In addition to copy protections (CSS, AACS, BD+), DVD movies, especially the Blu-rays always has large file size, so we need a tool to assist us to remove protections as well as compress file size, or select a specific clip for playback. When it refers to this function, Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper is recommended.
Part one: About Pavtube Blu-Ray Ripper:
It is an all-in-one Blu-ray and DVD ripper, converter and editor. With this application you can directly rip Blu-ray and protected DVD movie from the discs without other decryption software and convert them to compatible video and audio formats to transfer to Palm Pre Plus, iPod, iPhone, PSP, Apple TV, Blackberry, Gphone, 3GP, Zune, Xbox 360, Creative Zen, Archos, Nokia, DV, Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas etc for playback and editing.
It supports both HD and SD output formats and allows you to customize video size, aspect ratio, bitrate, frame rate, audio channel, etc. Movie collectors would be glad to find that Pavtube Blu-ray Ripper removes the protections of Blu-Ray movies and protected DVD when back them up for collection.
The ripper handles all versions of Blu-ray discs/DVDs, and allows you to select your desired subtitle and audio track, so you will never miss *********** language.
Part two: How to rip Blu-ray and DVD movies for Palm Pre Plus with your required file size

Step 1: Launch Pavtube Blu-Ray ripper and import Blu-ray/DVD files to it
There are three ways to load Blu-ray and DVD files: through "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" and "IFO/ISO".
Step 2: Select output format for Palm Pre Plus
Since Palm Pre Plus supports playback H.264, MPEG-4, H.263 video, here I choose "H.264 Video (*.mp4)" as output format.

Step 3: Customize file quality and file size
Click "Settings" button, and then the following interface will show up, on which you are able to adjust bit rate, frame rate, sample rate, aspect ratio, etc. to make control of the output file size and quality. To compress the file size, what you should do is changing the figures of these options to be smaller only. One more thing you must be sure that there will be some quality loss if you compress them to be a much smaller size, which means you’d better make a balance between the size and image quality. At least the output video quality should be acceptable by yourselves.

Step 4: Start Blu-ray/DVD ripping
As long as the former three steps are set well, then you can click "Convert" button to start Blu-ray/DVD ripping. Once finished, you can find out the output files via clicking "Open" button. After that the generated files are prepared for playback on your Palm Pre Plus.
Additional tips:
How to select a specific video duration to rip
You can click on the "Edit" button on the main interface firstly, and then click on "Trim" icon. After that you can drag the slider bars below the preview window to mark the beginning and the end of your clip during the preview, or you can input the certain time into "Start" and "End" boxes directly to do your selections.

Update player to play all blue ray dvd


The firmware updates for the Blu-Ray players are available directly from the manufacturers' websites - I won't be able to give you an exact website, because we don't know your manufacturer or model #. Not all firmware updates will resolve all issues with Blu-Ray playback. For instance, even the most recent updates for the Philips and Sony Blu-Ray players do not allow you to watch every single Blu-Ray - but this could change at any point in the future. Unfortunately, Blu-Ray is an evolving technology, and each studio is using a slightly different version of the Blu-Ray format - this has caused numerous conflicts and playability issues. For my money, the Playstation 3 is the best Blu-Ray player on the market - it is future-proof.

Dvd player only plays some movies


it might be sevral reasons:
1. Check if region code is the same for movies you playing and DVD player
2. If you using video CDs or copyed DVDs, player might be preventing to playback those kind of discs, due to copyright laws or due to different speed settings for DVD player and discks you using (for intsrance you player can playback DVD/CD+R, and you using DVD/CD-R, or mximum allowed playback speed is 16 you using disk recorded at 24, but this is in case you using burned/copied CD/DVDs)
3. Check it lens is durty. For that use CD/DVD lens cleaning disk
($6 in Walmart, if you are in US)
4. Check if movies you are have the same coloring system, i.e NTSC for US
5. Check CD/DVD for scratches, some DVD players can not playback scratched disks
Please kindly let me know if my information was helpfull for you or you need more info
