Re: Use only Playlists for titles

I'm pretty sure the m2ts files ARE from playlists, it's just the playlists point to a single m2ts file and don't add chapters or anything special, meaning there's no difference between muxing the playlists and muxing the m2ts files... so it just lists the file instead. If setting the minimum duratio...

Re: AAC Profile for 5.1

If you set the "outputChannelLayout" in an "audioMixSettings" to "5.1b" and add that to your "-multi" profile entries you can use the default AAC encoder (libfdk_aac) which has better compression than aac-gpl. It will also downmix 7.1 to 5.1. As to what it will do to 4.0 or 5.0... you'd have to deal...

Re: live streaming Blu-ray

I don't know how it works in Linux, but in windows all you need to do is copy the libmmbd/libmmbd64 dlls in the MakeMKV directory into the VLC/Kodi directories as libaacs.dll and libbdplus.dll. I'm assuming there's some similar functionality for Linux. This is a script that applies the Windows metho...

Re: Convert PGS to VOBSUB

You could also try OCRing the things with SubtitleEdit or DVD Subextractor and then converting the text to VobSub (or just keep the text if your player supports it... and has a decent renderer), but from experience that method is prone to errors. PGS has more resolution than VobSub anyway, so tends ...

Re: Unexpected Bonus Files

For what it's worth, the DVD ought to have 608 captions which MakeMKV doesn't rip, if you want to get at them you'd need to rip the discs using DVDShrink re-author mode first and convert the captions using CCExtractor. If you're going to decide to keep the files with the intros, just in case you int...

Re: Unexpected Bonus Files

If you go to the "episodes" submenu on the first disc, then select the first episode "esteemsters" you'll see that it gives two options, with "Daria Day intro" and without.

Re: Can I get a case string for Basilisk disks 1, 2, 4?

Handbrake re-encodes... there's no reason it should be limited to splitting on key frames... MakeMKV DOES put chapters on key frames though, but you could always move them. I don't know if Handbrake would work properly then... What you could do is split the file using AVIDemux into a lossless HUFFYU...

Re: Mkv File Format to DVD File Format

Extract the MPEG2 track using MKVExtract, run the stream through ReStream to change the aspect ratio to 16:9, remux the video back into the original MKV using MKVMerge, MKVMerge should set the MKV aspect ratio correctly from there. You could just load the MKV into the MKVToolNix GUI header editor an...

Re: Field Order

The only other possibility is your disc is NTSC with a top field first flag or PAL with a bottom field first flag and whatever dvd players you're using are ignoring it and sticking with the "standard" field orders for the respective formats.

Re: Field Order

This page describes the structure of an ifo file: http://www.mpucoder.com/DVD/ifo.html It lists the aspect ratio (everyone on this forum should be well aware that MakeMKV doesn't use the aspect ratio listed there) but there's absolutely no mention of a field order. Unless you have evidence against t...

Re: Field Order

The field order ought to be declared in the MPEG2 stream itself, adding it to the Matroska headers should be unnecessary. If the wrong field order is declared in the MPEG2 stream, then the DVD should play back incorrectly too. There's nothing MakeMKV could do about it in any case, since it doesn't a...

Re: Automatically Name Forced Sub Tracks to Forced?

Like I said, you just have to look for sequential "track numbers" to find the subtitles MakeMKV thinks are "forced". If you're using windows a simple powershell script using MKVMerge -J identification should be able to rename all the subtitles created from flagged forced subtitles quite easily. You ...

Re: Automatically Name Forced Sub Tracks to Forced?

Forced subtitles are created for every subtitles track, the ones that turn out to be empty are removed. The crux being each of those subtitle tracks were assigned "track numbers" and it's impossible to change the "track number" after the file has been ripped because it's repeated in every packet tha...
