Re: Poor stream quality, perfect rip quality -- any ideas?

There have been past reports that a large buffer makes it harder to get smooth streaming, because the operating system lets the disk spin down more often. In Preferences->IO, you can set a smaller read buffer. The default is "auto", which is great for ripping, but maybe not so great for streaming. ...

Re: Poor stream quality, perfect rip quality -- any ideas?

Hi I had the same issue, maybe not as severe as you, on my Archlinux system and a BH10LS30 LG drive. I reported in http://www.makemkv.com/forum2/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=10625 that streaming was leading blocky and chopped videos (using an AACS protected BR disc, NOT BD+), and that after that ripping to a...

Re: X-Files complete collection UK BR, AACS MKBv50

Hi I can confirm that it now works fine, but that the Stream function may have affected the capability to rip. Without using the stream, the rip is a lot faster, suggesting that the drive was busy playing and ripping at the same time, leading to this issue. Is this possible? I wish I could find a wa...

Re: X-Files complete collection UK BR, AACS MKBv50

I just restarted my computer again, and this time the rip went ahead fine. Does makemkv uses the EYDB.cfg file in .config/aacs/vuk by any chance? Another thing that may be related: the first time I had this issue, I used the stream functionality first, and had blocky video in VLC. Then I stopped it ...

Re: X-Files complete collection UK BR, AACS MKBv50

It would be helpful to know which version of MakeMKV you are running. And the debug log of the rip will help. If it is BD+, you should have gotten a message about not being able to create FUTs (Fix Up Tables), and a .tgz file would have been created to send to svq@makemkv.com for analysis. Hi, I ap...

X-Files complete collection - likely a buffering problem

Hi, I just received my boxset of The X-Files inBlu-Ray and immediately tried to dump titles with MakeMKV under Linux. aacskeys confirmed the MKB being of version 50, but there is no PK available to decrypt using the open source program. Anyway, the mkv was showing blocks, it looks most certainly a p...
