Re: checking for ff_ac3_encoder... no

https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224 details how to build ffmpeg. You have a lot more configure options than are used above, and you haven't set --prefix. I suggest you try the options as described above and see if it changes what you are currently seeing. Like you, I don't know if ...

Re: command line 'info' gives no information about disk?

Under linux, the command would be:

makemkvcon -r info dev:/dev/rdisk2

If the same is true on MacOS, you are missing the "dev:"
before "/dev/rdisk2"

Re: Product Expired?

In my case (about 3 years ago), the key came via email pretty much instantly.
I assume the process is the same today, but I don't have any personal experience.

Re: openssl test 00FC failed

I've learned the problem is related to the version of openssl. Previously, when everything was working for me, openssl was on version 1.0.2m. PCLinuxOS jumped the version to 1.1.0j, and when makemkv is compiled against 1.1.0j (on PCLinuxOS anyway, can't speak to any other distribution), makemkv will...

openssl test 00FC failed

I've been compiling MakeMKV from source on a desktop running PCLinuxOS for a few years. I was running version 14.1 and did a full backup of that desktop. I upgraded to 14.2 a while back with no problem, but never did another backup. 14.2 was working fine. Today I tried to upgrade to 14.3. It compile...

Re: MakeMKV broken after upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04

Nothing complicated, I'm probably using non-standard terminology.

Create a new (and therefor empty) directory, eg,

rm -rf $HOME/BUILD
mkdir $HOME/BUILD

unpack the makemkv source in $HOME/BUILD

then build it (in $HOME/BUILD)

Re: MakeMKV broken after upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04

First, be sure you started in an empty node when you built makemkv. If you not sure, just build it again and see what happens. If you still have the problem, you could then try this: cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu ln -s libavcodec.so.58.18.100 libavcodec.so.57 and see what happens when you run makemkv...

Did you try this:

ls -l /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libavcodec.so.57*

?

Re: MakeMKV broken after upgrade to Ubuntu 18.04

Hm. Not what I expected. I'm not an expert, just throwing out ideas trying to help. It would appear you have something linked to libavcodec.so.57* try this: ls -l /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libavcodec.so.57* I don't know how many files you'll find, but it won't be a lot. For each of the files you fin...

Re: Dumb Question - Can't find MakeMKV

In Linux, it's located here:

/usr/bin/makemkv

Hopefully it's the same location for Mac

Re: Simple way with GUI to Re-encode from VC-1 to h264, h65 or anything "Plexable"?

https://forums.plex.tv/t/batch-converting-vc1-to-h264-mkv/166921/3 says you can do it with mkvtools. YMMV. This is a CPU intensive job; it will likely take many hours to complete depending on your PC. I personally wouldn't get too hung up on requiring lossless video. The streaming services (eg, Netf...
