Re: Backing up a 4K disk correctly

Did you set your drive to unlimited read speed? I can rip a UHD with my Asus drive in about 30 minutes.

Re: Simple hack makes USB DVD drive usable

Why do you need to do this? I can rip using a DVD with no issues.

Re: Application failed to initialize

Try running makemkv from the command line, it will show more errors and may give you a clue what's happening.

Re: Correct way to convert 4k HDR rips?

I recently got a bunch of 4k HDR movies and after ripping them my 1TB drive is about full. Usually with 1080p videos I re-encode them to make them smaller, but from what I've seen I can't use handbrake because it has an 8-bit internal pipeline. Is there any other software I could use as an alternat...

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

I see that 1.15.3 is out, so I decided to waste several hours of my life installing it. :o

Once downloaded and extracted it took me 1 minute, 14 seconds.

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

I try not to say anything on a forum that might offend someone, but I can't bite my tongue on this one. Building makemkv for Linux is trivial. If you're not up to the task, you probably should be running Windows or MacOS. I was almost going to say that in my response... The first build can be a lit...

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

It takes about 2-4 hours work. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. DO IT and stop wasting our time! Really, 2-4 hours of work??? Let's look at the real numbers. Done from my Linux Mint laptop (I didn't include download time, as you'd have to download regardless of how it's distributed): brian@auton ~/Downloads/makem...

Hi, I have been "distrohopping" and whenever i install makemkv regardless if it is snap/flatpak, ppa or from source everytime on the first run when i change the default destination to semi-auto and home/user/videos folder.

Re: Can't rip to another drive/mount point

Came across this thread while searching for a solution to the same problem yesterday. I figured out a suitable workaround in case anyone is still dealing with this: I can confirm this is not a permissions issue, it seems that MakeMKV is only "aware" of certain root directories no matter who owns it...

nk, this is for the *GUI*. I am a tech geek and use the *command line version* (makemkvcon) in script
Did you add the key to your .MakeMKV/settings.conf file? That's all that should be needed.

Re: Could someone help me to install on ubuntu? QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR error

Hi, I'm trying to install on Ubuntu
It would help to know what version of Ubuntu you are running, and what desktop environment that you are using.

Re: Problem while working with BDMV

Did you try as I suggested to the OP and connect a monitor or use X Forwarding?

I've never used makemkvcon, but out of curiosity I gave it a try on my Linux Mint server and it works fine with 1.15.1.

Re: Windows doesn’t display thumbnail after DVD Rip

Plex has no problems with mkv support that I've ever heard of.
But it starting to seem like apps that will play these MKV files are few.
mkv is well supported. Complain to Micro$oft about their refusal to recognize it.
