Google, first match on "pcm_bluray mkv":


  pcm_bluray should only ever be put in Blu-ray-style m2ts files,
  Matroska has no format mapping for it anyway. Use normal PCM (ie.
  pcm_s16le or pcm_s24le depending on bitdepth). It contains the same
  data, just differently arranged.

Just convert it to some 24bit PCM - that conversion should be lossless.


I was tempted to create a link with LMGTFY of JFGI, but caught myself
being rude. Over and out.
