Re: Best backup options?

I'm not really sure I understand your question, sorry. I don't use Plex, so maybe that's why. I have always only used MakeMKV (registered user) and never had any problems. I rip to MKV, choosing highest quality audio for the rip if there's choices (plus commentaries where they exist) as well as subt...

Re: Shannara Chronicles Season 2 - UK release

^ Cool, thanks for the update re: mkvtoolnix.

Still hoping that this can be addressed in MakeMKV in the future, even though it's quite a rare occurrence.

Re: Video Commentary PiP Overlays - Shrek & Doctor Who

I'm not sure if this is related or not in terms of how they author this on the Blu-ray disc, but on possibly a similar or related note, I posted some findings about video PiP overlays on the Toy Story 3 Blu-ray:

Re: Board style discussion

I guess it's AllanStyle-SUBSILVER for me. It's the least garish and the simplest, and probably the closest in color to the previous style. One of the thing I dislike about these newer phpbb themes (seen them on too many forums) is the larger percentage of space that they give to the Author column. I...

Board style discussion

The board style topic said to discuss here, but it linked to the forum and not a topic, so I guess I'll start one... I liked it just fine the way it used to look... is there an option for the old appearance? I could point out specific things I don't like about the new feel - for example, I'm not a f...

Re: Shannara Chronicles Season 2 - UK release

Ah, thanks for the explanation, glad to know it's a known issue.

Test dumps submitted.

I'm pretty sure I have another disc with similar issue that I now believe would be this same issue - I just can't remember what the disc was!

Re: Shannara Chronicles Season 2 - UK release

This is what takes up a minute and a half at the top of each episode...

And of course with the ear piercing test signal sound :)

Shannara Chronicles Season 2 - UK release

MakeMKV appears to pick the wrong playlists for all episodes on all 3 discs, possibly ruling out the correct ones as duplicates. The episode playlists available for ripping all have a 1:30 leader with a test signal, as well as an episode title card from the production company, at the top of the epis...

Re: Backup to Blu-ray ISO files

That would depend on the playback software you choose, which has nothing to do with MakeMKV.

Re: 3D bluray mkv letterboxing

Not a big. You are only seeing one eye when you watch it in 2D. Depending on the distance, you'll get horizontal offset like that. A 3D disc really isn't meant for watching in 2D. That's why 3D movies, except for some of the earliest ones, always come in a combo pack together with the regular Blu-ray.

Re: The Divergent Series Blu-ray Digital Copy

And I love in-depth documentaries - which is the ~12 GB, 2-hour documentary that takes away from space that should have been used for the movie itself on the Insurgent disc - but I find this documentary unwatchable due to having the constant picture-in-picture ruining all the fantastic behind-the-sc...

Re: The Divergent Series Blu-ray Digital Copy

So turns out Insurgent is not the correct playlist as stated. I clicked on the "main feature" copy and it jumps scenes around 14 minutes in. I only noticed when one moment Tris is wearing a dress then next pants then a dress again then back to pants all in span of 2 minutes. The Java-acquired title...

Re: Baby Driver - Strange First Chapter with Duration 4:47

Yup, those are standard calibration images - from your description (images aren't loading), I've seen that sequence on many discs. But why they're part of a movie playlist is odd!

Re: First Ultra HD Blu-ray PC Drive

I think you want this subforum here:

http://makemkv.com/forum2/viewforum.php?f=16

MakeMKV supports UHDs. You don't want an official drive if you're going to rip UHDs - you want a "friendly" drive.

Re: Region 2 DVD won't unlock

I suggest you mention specifically what the disc is, since others may have the same disc.
