    My primary playback methods are to use Dune boxes, as they are the most consistent experience for me so far playing Blu-ray ISO files and mkv's over my LAN. That said - some of the content I have is in this 10 bit format which the Dune devices can't play back.
    Does anyone know of a reasonably automated/easy method to convert these to be more compatible?

    Probably one of the best and easiest to use is VidCoder.

    http://vidcoder.codeplex.com/

    1.4.16 is the most current. Pretty easy to input one MKV, output another, based on whatever rules you want, including conversion, reduction, etc.

    Matt - does VidCoder preserve subtitles? One of the major problems I have is with imported anime Blu-ray's that I ripped to 10 bit accidentally.

    If you tell it to, yes. You can go through the options and preserve subtitles, etc.

    Your method also works, and that's a stream method. The issue with that is you get high quality but not a lot of benefits for storage. It's up to you. ;)
