Is it allowed? The rules say that aud HD videos must be posted as fully authored Blu-Ray. But I've seen some aud .mkv uploads in HD-video section as well. I have no time or need to create Blu-Rays of my videos. I keep them on HDD as mkv files.

i believe that mkv files are only allowed for HD TV captures...per the FAQ:

http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/faq.php?faq=new_faq_item#faq_hdrules

2. Permitted file formats.

High Definition Transport Stream (.ts) and Matroska container (.mkv) is preferred format for straight digital captures of HD TV broadcasts.
-- The file needs to be checked before uploading against discontinuity errors. If possible, please attach a log file from your capturing program or dedicated software. If possible, please attach a log file from your capturing program or dedicated software.
--Unnecessary data, like doubled the same audio stream should be stripped to keep the file as small as possible. Commercials, and non music related contents must be cut out.
--Please note that the Transport Stream format is not permitted for standard definition video (DVD), and high definition audience video.
--The seeding policy concerning High Definition Transport Stream is subject to change when a quality consumer software for Blu-ray format authoring is available.

Blu-ray (BR) must be fully authored with menu(s) and chapter marks, and ready to burn Blu-ray video.
--It must have a properly named Blu-ray files and folders structure – see: http://www.videohelp.com/hd
--Not permitted is rough not authored .m2ts file due it larger size than the transport stream (.ts) format.
--Please check if your authoring software does not re-encode the stream, which is currently a case for Nero Vision, Ulead MovieFactory [perhaps others too, need to be checked]


High definition audience video has to be in form of authored and ready to burn Blu-ray (BR) video only.


however it may be allowed since yer the taper, i'll let the Video Mods know and hopefully one of them will respond later today or tomorrow

So... Can I post the video?

Maybe I better contact a moderator myself? And who should it be?

If you can't post 'em here you can share 'em at dimeadozen.org since their rules aren't as strict as they are here.

Problem solved. I'm gonna seed it. Thanks everybody for their help.

If I could I would, but the artist is prohibited at Dime. :rolleyes:

Anyway, TTD is a lot nicer than Dime (:thumbsup), I decided to seed here for a change.

Did you just convert the .mts files to .mkv and seed them that way?

I have some .mts files that Im not sure what to do with, have no need or time to get them converted and authored in Blu-Ray....

Does anyone know the easiest way to burn .mts as standard DVD?
I did a few with the program I got with the camera, Sony Play Memories Home, but they are somehow copy-protected, very weird?

Yes. m2ts -> MKVMerge -> mkv. Very fast and no reencoding. Plays fine on my media-player. And MKVMerge can also cut/join files without reencoding. Very handy sometimes.
