still image galleries - how to rip?

i've been pulling a lot of "extras" off my UHDs recently and there are several that are image galleries. if I backup every playlist identified by makeMKV, the image galleries never come through. playing the disc, it seems it is playing a multi-chapter video file, but i suspect something else is goin...

Re: Deadpool 2

this situation happens to me on a semi regular basis. disc cleaning sometimes works, though i wonder if it is really just a random occurance that the drive has trouble reading the disc. prior to uhd, i never had to clean a disc. i find switching drives to be more helpful. i have an asus and an lg, u...

Re: Attention. Ver 2.1 protection out

Your choice of course. Keep in mind: there have been two titles to date with AACS 2.1. Two out of how many? Any new titles don't seem to be continuing to use it. Who knows what will happen in the long run (well we do know: physical media will die). I suspect if you do care for 4k, grab the movies no...

Re: Attention. Ver 2.1 protection out

Cinavia is another kind of copy protection that is "in the video", and yet it matters naught when played on anything EXCEPT an "official Blu-ray specification" player. Same with AACS 2.1 FM - no "negative" effects except that the decrypted FMTS file encodes your player serial number (or rather the ...

Re: Attention. Ver 2.1 protection out

Give Mike some time. Mike never said it was not possible, only that it is not CURRENTLY possible. Not even that - it is impossible with current version of MakeMKV, as new decryption code needs to be written. Key-wise it is possible even now - the same magic that unlocks 2.0 MKBv61 can unlock 2.1 MK...

Re: What are your playback setups?

I rip everything to a custom built NAS running Snapraid 10 on Ubuntu 14LTS. Currently pushing 36TB of storage with 8 TB reserved for parity. Have space for another 12 TB (3 open drive bays; 4TB drives sitting idly by). That is served to various devices: The main Home Theater is: JRiver Media Center ...

Same with The Patriot. Both are Sony titles... + 1, unable to rip Fury uhd and the patriot uhd George Everyone needs to relax. It's been a few days. There are two discs. There will be more. It took time to get AACS 2.0 worked-around and it may take some time here. Who knows - may be impossible. But...

Re: Unable to Use keys_hashed.txt File. What Am I Doing Wron

I downloaded the keys_hashed.txt file and placed it in my .MakeMKV directory where my KeyDB.cfg is (and has been working). If I try to rip a disc with the KeyDB.cfg file in the dir, it works fine. If I take that file out and place the keys_hashed.txt in that directory, I can't rip any discs includi...

Re: 1080p vs 2160P

Yes, your HDR backups will look like washed out crap when your TV doesn't recognize that HDR content is being presented to it. I would recommend getting an Nvidia Shield with the Kodi or SPMC apps to properly play back your 4k HDR content. Recommended settings for the Shield and SPMC/Kodi are: http...

So comparing this to the KEYDB file, I see this layout:

<SHA1 Key> = <Title> | V | <some hash> ; AACS 2.0 MKB v<57,60 or 61>

Do you know what the rest of this stuff means? just curious...

Re: Asus BW-16D1HT Firmware

How does one match the UPC? I haven't seen any information about that - I haven't seen UPCs posted. I suppose it's still possible that discs with different keys are sold under the same UPC. not only possible but absolutely done. we are keeping track here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ......
