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?

Re: Friends s04e23 & 24, how to handle?

>>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. When you get to a chapter that's approx 1/2 way, that should be where the second episode begins. You're right, There won't be any opener for i...

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

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?

>>] is the code instantly e-mailled or does it take time (days?) to generate and email?

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:

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.

Re: Dumb Question - Can't find MakeMKV

In Linux, it's located here:

/usr/bin/makemkv

Hopefully it's the same location for Mac
