I want to burn a movie (.mkv) to a Blu-Ray disc.

What I've done

First, I generate a Blu-Ray BDMV directory structure from the .mkv with tsMuxeR GUI (2.6.16-dev).

Next, for how to burn to the disc, I'm working off of this guide, which recommends using K3b along with the cdrecord writing medium.

I make a Data Project, and add the directories I generated from tsMuxeR, and then begin burning. When the burning hits 50%, the write fails with 'mkisofs crashed', as shown below:

I pasted more detailed output from K3b here


How can I burn a .mkv file to a Blu-ray Bisk so that I can put it in a Playstation 4 and watch it?


Can be a permissions issue, try opening a terminal and typing these one at a time.

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/wodim

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdrdao

sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/growisofs

    I ran sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/wodim; sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/cdrdao; sudo chmod 4711 /usr/bin/growisofs instead and it worked. If you could add the growisofs part, I think it could help others using this answer.
