Re: Change container to VOB with FFMpeg and preserve chapters?

If I am recalling correctly, VOB files themselves don't have chapter info. That is kept in other files in the VIDEO_TS directory. Did you save the complete backup?

Re: Update MakeMKV?

When I ran a distribution that did not provide MakeMKV I would build it manually according to the instructions, but now I run a linux that does provide it, so I wait for the repository to catch up. For me it is usually only a day or two.

Am using Arch Linux, MakeMKV is in the AUR.

Redbox doesn't seem to have the Blu-ray.

Can anyone verify that 00741.mpls (Midway_t168.mkv) is the correct playlist for the Redbox Blu-ray version?
Yes, that is correct.

Why doesn't Java find the correct title? Shouldn't it?
It's not infallible. It can be improved.

Re: Midway

It's Midway in 4K. This other thread https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=12&t=21505 says another program found #504 to be the correct playlist, this disc does have that one so I'm trying it. Also interestingly all my playlists have 7 numbers for segment map rather than 10. Ok, I don't fol...

Hmmm weird, and yeah there's a huge list.
Thinking... is it the correct title? Redbox also has Dauntless: The Battle Of Midway, although it is DVD-only where I am. Don't know about nationally.

Re: Midway

I rented the Redbox version and neither 00539.mpls or 00741.mpls were even on the disc. I also couldn't find a playlist with the same segment map as in the screenshot. Anybody have any ideas? My Redbox rental has both and 741 matches the map shown above. Have not watched the movie, but quick testin...

Re: How can I make clips from a MKV?

mkvmerge will cut an mkv file into segments. You can split by time stamp, duration, chapter, etc.

Re: Audio issues ripping Region A disks, to play on region B blu ray player.

Note that Criterion often uses LPCM audio. Could be your older player doesn't like that in an MKV container.

Re: Read Error Question

Use the MakeMKV "Open File" menu selection.

For Blu-ray select the index.bdmv file.

For DVD, select video_ts.ifo.

Using /usr/bin/true as the executable dummies out the operation. Not many cycles wasted.

Re: Complete DVD backup

I have used dvdbackup in the past, and vobcopy will also mirror an entire disc. The result is a VIDEO_TS folder; you can make an ISO with the mkisofs utility. Remember to use the -dvd-video flag.

It is old but vobcopy has worked for years without error for me.
