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.

Re: Dolby Atmos player for Blu-ray rips

You could use a Pi with OSMC. Or if you want 4K playback capabilities a Vero 4K+ is a great little media center.

Re: Does it convert - transform truehd into ac3??

Wow, you are a rude one.

I guess you don't understand what MakeMKV is for. It's for Ripping DVD/BD's, not for transcoding MKVs.

Also, I'd suggest that you read your post. I quote you here:
Can this program convert truehd mkv or blueray
That reads to me as ripping a bluray.

Re: Does it convert - transform truehd into ac3??

A 1 minute file should not take long at all to rip. If it's taking that long for you then either you have a dirty/damaged disc, or your drive is defective. The audio format makes no difference as it's just copying the tracks without change.

Re: makemkv crashes upon request to cancel

I've seen this also on Linux Mint 19.3. It's never really bothered me since I rarely cancel a rip so I haven't reported it. If wanted I'll reproduce the problem with logging turned on.

Re: Can't start the program, always prompted for key

Sounds like your settings file may have been corrupted.

What does ~/.MakeMKV/settings.conf look like? Or, just rename it, start MakeMKV and add your key again and a new file will be created.

Re: Libredrive version v6

I tested a few BD and DVDs and Wow, what a difference. Then for fun I tried a few of my UHDs that would not rip due to disc errors (even after a good cleaning). 2 of the 4 that I tried now rip. One of the discs was Call of the Wild, so I only tried it a week ago. Before updating to LD 6 it would not...

Re: Region B cause any issues for Region A watcher?

I would guess it was just the disc. I've ripped a Doctor Who Bluray that was region B and it worked fine for me.

Just try another disc and find out is the best way to know for sure!!!

Re: Problem while working with BDMV

I'd suggest the you connect a monitor (or you should be able to SSH in with X forwarding turned on) and try makemkv via the gui to verify if it's makemkvcon not reading the file, or another problem.

Re: How to rip a DVD-Audio disc

Thanks for the hint. I tried DVDAExplorer in Wine, but it didn't work. So thinking back, I tried foobar2000 with the DVD-Audio addon. Then I was able to rip to an uncompressed WAV.

From there I can use Audacity to convert to FLAC.

Re: How to rip a DVD-Audio disc

Yes that's enabled. I was able to rip the 'flip side' of the disc (the DVD-Video) with no problems. I looks to me like MakeMKV just doesn't like DVD-Audio discs.

BTW, I'm running MakeMKV on linux.

How to rip a DVD-Audio disc

I've searched the forum and can't find any information about this. I just got a DVD-Audio disc (Mannheim Steamroller Fresh Aire 8 ) and would like to rip it to FLAC. But MakeMKV will not open the disc. This is what I get 001003:0020 DEBUG: Code 0 at Fi:8.YS^z0_#RDnJ/Oz 3Q:29393631 No SDF v06d: hp_DV...

My settings.conf looks like this:

Code: Select all

app_Key = "[i]my_key[/i]"
Is that really what the app key entry looks like? The

Code: Select all

[i][/i]
should not be there.

This is what mine looks like

Code: Select all

app_Key = "my_key"
