Re: When to decrypt backup, and when not to decrypt

Do you want to play it? Decrypt. If you don't, any device you decide to play the file will have to understand BD encryption. The other question you don't ask, "Why use backup, rather than open/write to MKV files?" Since decrypting from HD is faster than disk, am I good getting a "1:1" copy if I dec...

Re: When to decrypt backup, and when not to decrypt

movie extras for backup, I usually dont save them when writing main title.
Also, in case I miss a forced sub. my process has evolved, and now I write all subs.

When to decrypt backup, and when not to decrypt

What is the general consensus when backing up BD (or UHD) discs? Decrypt or not? Ive seen a few posts that some programs want the original "signatures", so in those cases don't. Should I be decrypting all, with the exception being for some (or vice versa)? My workflow is backup disk (no decryption),...

Re: Ken Burns: The Vietnam War

My initial run for this Lionsgate DVD was met with partial errors, so I searched and found this thread (linked from another: Question on DVD obfuscation https://makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=17806) This method helped for me with Juliet, Dead. However it varied: First play was from PS3, Title...

Re: 100% Firmware Downgrade for ASUS BW-16D1HT and LG BH16NS55

Theres some werid "grinding" sounds, like laser tracking is off (laser is at end of track with motor still moving to progress it). Anyway, not sure if I should try a difference firmware. This happens as MakeMKV terminates the backup &/or I exit the program.

Thoughts?

1) 3.01 or 3.02 modded fw make your unit to be UHD friendly. 2) Yes, it supports any MediaTek MT1939/MT1959 chipset (mainly LG, ASUS). 3) Win7-PE, as the name suggests, is a Windows 7 Portable Edition, which is needed to properly execute DOSFLASH32. If you carefully read my own guide, you'll find a...

Re: Conversion profiles missing in upgrade to 1.12.3

Thanks for the confirmation. I tried extracting a tar in the default install directory, but there were nested tarballs and I didn’t see any XML files so I gave up. I’ll double check tonight. It would probably be helpful to others to update the custom profile sticky to reflect this change. VLC is my ...
