Hey guys,

I'm loving MakeMKV in particular using the FLAC option since I have a Raspberry Pi and it outputs it in PCM for me to get the best sound!!!.

question, is there a way i can change or alter the Quality of the FLAC that's made or is it set at it's best????

Thanks.

If you go into the Conversion profile there are two settings for FLAC "flac-fast" and "flac-best". It's set to use "flac-fast' by default. I've set mine to "flac-best" which I assume is better.

Code:
    <!-- Save DTS-HD as FLAC -->
    <trackSettings input="DTSHDMA-stereo">
        <output outputSettingsName="copy"
                defaultSelection="$app_DefaultSelectionString">
        </output>
        <output outputSettingsName="flac-best"
                defaultSelection="$app_DefaultSelectionString,+sel:true">
        </output>
    </trackSettings>


...and repeat with surround MA and TrueHD. I also set VobSubs and PGS to "copyzlib".

FLAC is lossless, so you can't alter the quality - only the compression efficiency. Using flac-best instead of flac-fast will save you a few bits, though on most streams, no more than a few percent (of the audio stream itself, not overall).

Hmmm.

So many things wrong with your statement.

FLAC is a lossless audio compression. Its sound quality is the same as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD MA found on Blu-ray.

And because it is lossless, no settings will affect its sound quality.

FLAC can be thought of a zip/7z like compression

Newbie to MKV and do not see where to access PROFILE in order to set output to FLAC rather than MKV.

How does one access PROFILE?

Preferences->General, make sure "Expert mode" is checked, and a number of new menus will become available to you.

Sorry, Woodstock, for the post on 2 forums. Not sure where I'd get a reply.

I did find where to select FLAC. Thanks for that.

Trying to get audio from 2 BDs:
Neil Young - Psychedelic Pill
Tom Petty & Heartbreakers - Damn The Torpedoes

Since I had numerous "MEDIUM ERROR" messages when trying to rip the discs with MakeMKV, I searched on the error and found the post about copying contents fo disc to another drive which I did.

Now, when I go to BDMV folder and click open, almost immediately MKV comes back (with both discs) and says...

"The volume key is unknown for this disc - video can't be decrypted.
Failed to open disc."

I will have to say that the 4 screenshots on the MKV site suggest that this process is much simpler than it actually is.
