Re: Bombshell (2019)

I extracted both the 942.mpls (which my java said was the main feature) and 619.mpls (which the first post said was the correct file for rental (I have a netflix disc). I ran both side by side along with the actual bluray playing in a third window. I didn't watch every second, but did check back ev...

Re: MakeMKV Blu-Ray rips can't play on Roku, remux fixes it??

I can't offer any insights, but I can confirm this happens to me as well on the same Roku model using Emby and direct play. It doesn't happen with every file, but definitely happens. This never happened before on this device - it started sometime early this year. So it's either due to a recent firmw...

Re: Bombshell

And for Netflix? Update 2: I checked the transitions from the end of each segment to the start of the next, and the following seems to be correct. The scenes flow together at least. So 00619.mpls appears to be correct for Netflix Title information Name: Bombshell (English) Source file name: 00619.m...

Re: VLC Media Player won't play blu-ray's in Ubuntu 20.04? (Running latest MakeMKV)

Debian, Ubuntu and derivatives have been supporting multiple architectures using a Multiarch layout (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MultiarchSpec) for many years now. The instructions for adding libmmbd support are outdated/incomplete. The correct place to put the symlink on modern 64-bit Debian-based syst...

Re: Output file name template: Source file type?

So after testing a bunch of DVDs and Blu-ray discs (with minimum title length=0), I've come to the following conclusion about source file number: 1. For DVDs it doesn't seem to provide much in the way of consistently useful information. Some DVDs have one title per source file, others can have multi...

Re: Output file name template: Source file type?

Yeah good point. It's a workaround that's far from ideal, but that would work in principle. Thank goodness makemkvcon has minimum title length as an option so you can pass in a value that's suitable for the disc in question. That can't be done with the GUI, so it's either edit the config file or ope...

Re: Output file name template: Source file type?

Thanks for the reply, Woodstock. I'm aware of that variable - that's the 'title id' and which I personally have come to refer to as 'relative title id'. The problem with that variable is it is assigned by MakeMKV, changes depending on the settings and is not consistently reproducible for a given dis...

Re: Output file name template: Source file type?

Hmm. After playing around a bit with a few more discs and some DVDs as well, source file number + sourcefile type doesn't quite do the trick for producing a unique filename. Perhaps I should re-frame the question as: what is the minimal set of attributes of a disc sufficient to create a reproducible...

Output file name template: Source file type?

Hi, I've been adjusting the output filename template in an effort to get reproducible filenames for a given disc. The title id used in the current default template can vary in response to changes in settings that change the track order (eg. track weight) or number of tracks (eg. minimum title length...
