I'm trying to play an mp4 I found of The Matrix that has Dolby Vision in the second stream of an mp4 file. Is there a way to make this playable in mrmc?
Unfortunately MrMC can only playback dolby vision from single layer video files. Currently there is no public software available to create these types of files. However, depending on your TV / UHD-BD Player, you may be able to get DV from these dual layer mp4's using either usb or plex.
DVDFab 11.0.3.4 can now create single layer DV mp4's with ac3 5.1 audio that should play great in MrMC (the free trial gives you 3 converts). They are compressed however but not by a huge amount, less than the x265 bd rips you find. Add your movie, choose the MP4.DolbyVision profile (no passthrough), set the quality to max (50gb limit) and hit go (the MP4.DolbyVision passthrough profile will make a lossless video dual layer mp4 like mp4muxer does). I'm sure we can then just demux these single layer mp4s with dolby mp4demuxer then mux the video track with the lossless audio from the disc and make a single layer m2ts file for MrMC with hd audio as the ATV4K supports passthrough. This would be the first software to support dolby vision and hd-audio simultaneously (save for maybe plex on an LG TV with e-arc) as you currently need a uhd bd player for that. unfortunately my old crappy laptop doesn't cut it (hangs around 12% forever) for creating these single layer mp4s, but I've seen them work from others and the quality is awesome. if anyone wants to try, and be the first to achieve this feat, I will guide you through the whole process :)

Compressed DV sounds horrible. Whats better uncompressed HDR10 or compressed DV....I wouldnt call that a solution

compressed video vs compressed audio is usually dependent on your setup. if you have a 50" tv with a 7.2.4 sound system you'd want lossless audio+atmos. if you have a 75" tv with a soundbar you'd want lossless video. I'm just trying to provide options. there's never a perfect solution for everyone. compressed dv is still dolby vision though. the base hdr10 video track is compressed a bit yeah, but the specular highlights and the extra per frame dynamic range that dv offers is still just as beautiful. try watching a few new movies on Netflix in dolby vision. the dv is amazing (and the compression is actually getting a lot better these days). these single layer DV movies would look even better than that, but in full hd audio + atmos. it's definitely worth looking into, imo.

I have know have tried dvdfab and made a dolby vision rip from my venom disk. This file will only play sound no picture in mrmc. IT will not play in plex app on lg oled. I can only play IT direct from harddisk on lg oled.
Maybee I do something wrong. I have taken away copy and put the slider to Max.

Can you post the mediainfo for the mp4? It might still be dual layer if you didn't choose the correct profile.

Yea that's a proper single layer mp4. glad it works on your tv usb to confirm it plays right. now to get it working in MrMC I'm assuming you just need to turn it into a .ts file like the LG Demo's. here's how:
You should get a single layer ts file with dolby vision and hd-audio that hopefully plays everything right in MrMC / e-arc TV's :)
