It is hilarious. I immediately pictured a mad scientist's laboratory. Thanks for explaining its origin.

Also seeing a disc with a rounded edge for the first time is kind of mind-bottling.
The disc reads from the inside outwards so the outside edge should have no effect. My real question is the "mind-bottling". Spell checker error or Cockney rhyming slang?

Re: Opening index.bdmv does nothing

Right again, Grauhaar!

Just opening the index.bdmv brings up all the available playlists. The disc button not needed. Just deselect any unwanted playlists and make an mkv of the selected one(s).

Yes, that is exactly what I'm doing. When I do this, nothing happens.
Just to be sure, after you open the index.bdmv file you do press the animated disc button in the lower left? No decoding/analyzing starts until that large button is pressed.

Re: Don't want to give up on makemkv, but...

Grauhaar is giving good advice. Is the movie listed in your log a concert recording? Maybe try a more common and recent movie. I did just verify the link in my first post to download the blu-ray keys and it does work. Make sure a recent dsall.svq is in your MakeMKV data directory. Other decrypting p...

Re: Don't want to give up on makemkv, but...

1. Have you downloaded the latest keys? 2. While the debug log is long there are often a few lines that will indicate the problem. Copy the text into a code window box in your next posting. 3. Sorry to be basic, but you do know the big disc button starts the decoding process? 4. Compression means zi...

Re: Don't want to give up on makemkv, but...

Not much information to work from. There is a MakeMKV setting that lets the program contact the server and download the latest Blu-ray keys. Make sure that is enabled or manually download https://www.makeMKV.com/svq/dsall.svq and put that in your data directory (also shown in MakeMKV settings. The t...

Re: I can't Rip some recorded movies

MakeMKV is used to remove encryption from commercial discs. If you made the disc yourself, it would not be encrypted. You should be able to open the disc with any file explorer.

Re: Makemkv hangs OS

You've tried the likely CDROM drive and power supply already.

I don't know the Linux equivalent to a system image but you may want to be ready if your hard drive or SSD is failing.

Re: Knives Out - Scene Out of Order

Welcome to playlist obfuscation. MakeMKV with Java runtime will select the correct "Main Feature" more than half the time but does fail on some movies. As Grauhaar suggests, it is wise to search the Blu-ray discs section with your movie title. Several members regularly post the correct .mpls playlis...

Re: Extract/backup specific M2TS file

Making a decrypted backup (under File, I think) of the Blu-Ray will give you a folder of all the .m2ts files. Yes, VLC can play the .m2ts files. Just right click on the .m2ts file and choose VLC for "Open With."

Re: New version looks fantastic

I haven't found the dark mode yet but with just a couple ticks in settings to copy a .dll into System32 and SysWOW64, VLC can now play Blu-Ray and UHD discs. Good work!

Re: Midway

Most of the fake playlists will have the correct first and last video sections. Lionsgate likes to switch short video sections in two or three places in the middle of the picture. Usually the rental disks do use the same playlist but you need to test the entire movie to verify.
