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....

Re: Big Bang Theory Season 11 - Compressed?

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

>>Splitting this double episode does not seem like an option because there is no opener for the second episode... no obvious place to cut Chapter skip ahead.

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: checking for ff_ac3_encoder... no

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)
