Re: Number of licenses

Additionally, if you ever want to upgrade the hardware on one (or both) of your computers,
MakeMKV will keep working for you (at least this is true for Linux, where I had to replace
the motherboard on my desktop), and MakeMKV didn't blink at all, it just kept working.

Re: Recovering from read errors in Linux

Can't I just tell makeMKV to ignore corrupt data and get everything ripped that's fine? No, you can't. MakeMKV will only succeed if it can read every bit correctly. Similarly, if you download a PCLOS *iso file, you need every single bit to be correct: there's no way to say "oh heck, that's close en...

Re: playback on PLEX skipping a second or two....

You'll likely get better answers if you post your question in the Plex forums. That being said, I don't know why you copying entire directory structures over instead of just the mkv file that MakeMKV created. When (if) you post your question to the Plex forum, you should explain what client you are ...

Re: Back up greyed out

Double check that you didn't try to back up a DVD (instead of a Blu-Ray Disc).

Re: Workflow issue

Doesn't "subler" expect an mp4 or m4v (not a mkv) file as input?

Re: Original RAW MKV vs. Handbrake Recompression?

All the streaming services (eg, Netflix) use compression. Are you satisfied with the quality of Netflix? If yes, then Handbrake is a great tool, but does (as already mentioned) require a lot of CPU and/or time to process a movie. If no, then you'll have to pony up and buy more space. I don't think t...

Re: Mageia 7- won't run

Congratulations, I'm happy you got it working. I think you could now undo what you just did: in other words, you could uninstall what you just installed, and re-install what you un-installed, and makemkv would continue to run. I think you only need to have the old version of openssl devel installed ...

Re: Mageia 7- won't run

I don't know Mageia packaging. Check what version of openssl headers you are using. MakeMKV requires an old version, 0.9.8 I recall. And as I recall, that doesn't mean "0.9.8 or greater", it means "0.9.8" exactly. I speculate that Mageia 5 is using 0.9.8 and Mageia 7 has upgraded to something newer....

Have you tried playing the DVD directly and see what the episodes look like?
Are you sure your source is a legitimate DVD?

Re: Friends s04e23 & 24, how to handle?

I also use Plex, which retrieves the metadata/episode descriptions from thetvdb.com. I like to read the episode description before viewing an episode. I use makemkv to create the mkv for the "double" episode, and then I split the mkv into 2 parts (episodes). There are different options/tools to spli...

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.
