    Still sound cuts in "Coco" and "Inside Out" :(
    I didn't test "The Incredibles 2" that has the same issue. Apparently this new firmware is still presenting this problem. But even considering these occasional bugs it's one great media player.

    This is seamless branching which is actually happening:
    • For movies that have more than version (extended, director's cut, etc.), because some scenes will exist in several versions
    • For movies which title is different depending on countries, and is displayed at the beginning or at the end
    • For cartoons that contain translatable text in some scenes (those parts will exist in several versions)
    As a result it happens a lot more for cartoons than for movies, as Pixar for example translates the text in images almost systematically.

    Thanks for the information! Apparently there's no way to solve this at the moment. When I'm seeing theses movies I have to go over a couple of seconds forward in the sound cuts part to recover the audio again.

    I feel they are working hard on this and that it will be solved for sure. Excellent player indeed as you say even with this nasty flaw.

    Nice Monkey I totally agree with you. I had several media players and sometimes when I see a lot of criticism around this player I just don't see the point. People try to use this equipment has the ultimate perfect technology media player which doesn't exist (yet). :)

    Waiting for this issue to be resolved, I decided to transform to MKV all movies containing multiple M2TS. I keep the original ISOs in order to restore once this is solved... It’s a long and painful process, but entirely doable.

    Other question: is this firmware only for the Z10 or can I test it on my Z1000?

    no doubt as soon as an official release for the Z9s / Z10 s they will all follow later .

    It is clearly a Zidoo strategy to try beta versions first on Z9S (occasionally Z10 too) and later release it for their top models.
    So for sure it will come for the when nobody can tell.

    I hope so! I've just seen "Toy Story 4" and there's a few sound cuts related to seamless branching. Then, instead of using MakeMKV, I used MKVToolNix and I didn't have sound cuts so far. I'll try the same procedure with "Incredible 2" and "Coco".

    RESOLVED:
    I've just used MKVtoolnix in all the films with sound cuts and it played with no flaws! Finally

    Good to hear. :)
    This is not what I call solved but BYPASSED. ;) It is up to Zidoo to solve it.

    I've done the same: used BDInfo on all my BR Rips, and whenever the main movie (or main movies - very often it's because there are 2 versions) had more than 1 used MkvToolnix on the main MPLS to rip it as an mkv.

    Yes, agree with Nice Monkey here, it's a temporary bypass, I keep the original ISO and will restore it once this problem is fixed. Indeed, when extracting the main movie as an MKV, even though video quality is essentially the same (MkvToolnix does not transcode), you lose a big part of the Blu-Ray interest as you have lost the menus, and bonuses for ex. If you want to keep the multiple versions (theatrical and director cut for ex), you end up with 2 MKVs which take a whole lot more space than the original ISO.

    Yes and did! You're right. Anyway it's a solution to avoid the unpleasant sound cuts when you're viewing a film

    I understand what you're saying and makes total sense! In my case I don't really care about menus and, most of the time, I choose the Theatrical Version of a film. The Bonus/Extras I see them in the ISO file, with the BD menu (although with occasional bugs), and then delete the ISO keeping just the MKV version of the film.

    When running 1080p BD-Remux - the movie freezes after a few seconds of starting.
    When running 4k BD-Remux - shows movie ok.

    No new firmware for 2 months? Disappointing to spend so much on this and it not be supported.

    They are clearly focussing on FW (e.g. music player 5) for their new UHD2000 top model. Sooner or later that will drip down.
