Easy Get Blu-Ray Playback on Mountain Lion with or without Conversion

Overview:

Again, the release of new Mac OS X system, Mountain lion, did not deliver Blu Ray playback support. The lack of Mountain Lion for Blu-ray support doesn’t mean Blu-ray is dead. Blu-ray still has its place and Blu-ray is currently the best available format in terms of Picture Quality, as well as Audio Quality. It simply means that Mac users have come to terms with the fact that Blu Ray support on Mac is never coming and they will have to make other arrangements.

To get Blu Ray supported on Mountain Lion, there are two popular methods:

  • Method 1: Convert Blu Ray to Mountain Lion supported MP4, H.264, MOV, M4V video formats;
  • Method 2: Download Blu Ray Player for Mac OS X Mountain Lion Application.

Method one, ripping Blu Ray to Mountain Lion enables you to play, backup Blu Ray disc on Mountain Lion. It also enables you to add Blu Ray to iTunes on Mountain Lion to transfer to iPad, iPod, iPhone for enjoy on the go, even add to Apple TV for airplay to HDTV.

Problem

After upgrading Mountain Lion, you might find odd problems such as Safari crashing, or the system not showing the appropriate cursor at times, either in Safari or in other programs like Microsoft Office. When you might expect to see the standard arrow as the mouse pointer, the cursor will instead look like a crosshair or another alternate cursor.

Reason

This problem is not widespread by any means, and seems to be rooted around the user installing an incompatible Adobe PDF viewer Web browser plug-in.

Since Safari provides built-in PDF compatibility, for most people there has been no real need for an alternative PDF viewer plug-in. If you do need an alternative, though, then Adobe does offer a compatible plug-in with its latest Adobe Reader for OS X; however, those who have older versions of Adobe’s CS suite or Acrobat Pro program may inadvertently install the plug-in when either repairing their current installation or reinstalling the program from scratch, steps that might commonly be done after upgrading OS X.

Users with such configurations have reported black browser screens when viewing PDF files, and in Mountain Lion have more recently seen odd cursor problems and browser crashes, and uninstalling the plug-in has resulted in these problems going away.

Convert 6 Channel Audio only AAC, WAV, DTS to AC3, MP3, WMA and Convert 6 Channel Audio in Video AVI, MKV, MP4 to AC3, MP3 Stereo or 6 Channel

Overview

Convert AAC to AC3 5.1

“I have an MKV with 5.1 AAC soundtrack. I want to play it through PCH in its full 5.1 glory. I understand that PCH can only play it in PCM stereo. That’s why, I have extracted the AAC soundtrack and now I want to convert it to AC3 file and mux it back into MKV.

To my shock, I have discovered that there are NO tools available (either free or paid) that can easily convert 5.1 AAC to 5.1 AC3. Some people have listed on internet, long and time consuming methods that convert 5.1 AAC to 6-channel WAV file, which then needs to be converted to AC3 with manual mapping of channels. Apparently there is channel assignment mismatch while conversion from multichannel AAC to AC3.”

This article solves:

  • Convert audio only AAC/WAV/DTS, etc to 5.1 AC3/MP3 or stereo AC3/MP3
  • Convert audio only AAC/WAV/DTS, etc to 5.1 MP3, WAV, WMA or stereo
  • Convert MKV with 5.1 AAC/DTS soundtrack to MKV AC3 5.1 or MKV AC3 stereo
  • Convert MKV with 5.1 AAC/DTS soundtrack to MP4/MOV/M4V/AVI AC5.1 or stereo
  • Convert AVI with 5.1 AAC soundtrack to MP4/MOV/M4V/AVI AV3 5.1 or stereo
  • Convert between all kinds of video formats
  • Convert between all kinds of audio formats
  • Extract audio from video and convert to desired audio formats

Overview

“I have Perian as my AC3 Dolby Codec and it was working fine until I upgraded to Mountain Lion. It seems as if there aren’t any Dolby AC3 codecs compatible with Mountain Lion.”

“I tried to open some avi movies with AC3 and there’s no sound since I’ve installed Mountain Lion. I read that Perian will stop developing updates so I think this problem will continue unless apple provides a codec for quicktime playing avi files with sound…”

Interesting thing is that QuickTime Player 7 can play MP4 AC3, MOV AC3 just fine on Mac OS X Mountain lion. In fact, it is not strange at all if you get to know that Dolby Digital audio AC3 is a paid audio codec. QuickTime has got an ac-3 decoder from Apple, but other apps like VLC, Perian can’t use the AC3 codec due to copyright issue.

The Fix

To solve this issue, you can remux the MKV, AVI with AC3 to AAC by Subler. However, Subler currently also runs into the issue of AC3 codec support on Mountain Lion.

With some tricks, we can get Subler to remux MKV, AVI with AC3 to MKV, AVI AAC stereo, but AC3 surround sound 5.1 (6 channel) still cannot be supported.

If you care about the audio quality, you will need to convert MKV or AVI to MP4 AC3 5.1 or MP4 AC3 stereo or MP4 AAC 5.1 to play MKV or AVI with QuickTime player.

The common use for Mac OS X users with Subler is to remux MKV or MOV file to MP4 with AC3 passthrough. Thanks to Subler, it saves tons of time and there is no more headach for video files conversion.

However, with the realease of Mountain Lion, many Mountain Lion users just find that Subler no longer work on Mountain Lion. Some users may find it even won’t start on Mountain Lion. Some users get “Audio Converter Error – The Audio Converter can not be initialized” when trying to convert the MKV file to MP4 with setting the Action “AC-3 to AAC”.

The issue is related to a52codec, the ac3 core audio component that is bundled with perian.

Easy Convert QCP to Popular Audio Formats

Overview

QCP file format was initially created by the Voice Memo feature on a Palm, later adopted by LG and Motorola for mobie phone voice recording storing. Some phones from Samsung like Samsung Intensity II also use QCP as the voice record format.

QCP files are typically encoded with QCELP or EVRC. Some QCP files may be encoded with tia is-127 enhanced variable rate codec. QCP file is not compatible with most media player and not supported by Windows and Mac. It will end in fail if you try to play the recorded QCP file with Windows Media Player, iTunes, QuickTime on Windows or Mac computer. Even the popular free and powerful media player VLC cannot play most of QCP files.

Free way to Convert QCP?

I tried the suggested free way by some forums using Windows Movie Maker, QuickTime, MPEG Stream even the online QCP Converter mediaconverter.org but only found QCP files cannot even be loaded, let alone convert the QCP files.

I then tried some paid software including the CNET download listed QCP Converter, Amadeus Pro and Aiseesoft Audio Converter. Aiseesoft Audio Converter wins my favor for its support for all kinds of QCP files, professional functions and last but not least the price advantage.
