Re: Have a TV Episode DVD which shows as one file in MakeMKV

Thx! Actually I was able to do it with MKVToolNix GUI! I play the exported large MKV in VLC and step forward by Chapters until I find the beginning of each episode and record the timecodes. A little time consuming but it works perfectly! Thx to everyone for the advice and tips! You don't need the t...

Re: Disc Not inserted Blu-Rays

I had a similar issue, and it seems that sometimes the BD functions will fail.

Does your drive work with other programs when you use BD media? If not, you might need a replacement drive.

Re: Force output file to MKV (H.264)

I'm going to venture to guess that when you ran the source discs through CloneDVD that the source files were converted to h264, and then when you ripped those discs with MakeMKV, you had MKV files which had h264 video streams. As for using MakeMKV to determine the video stream type, open the disc wi...

Re: Combining multiple titles to one movie.mkv file

The idea of combining all of the titles on a disc into one file is silly to say the least. The next time you try to rip a Disney disc and you run out of space because each of the bogus titles is 20GB and there are twenty (or more) bogus titles, or titles with different language scenes, you'll really...

Re: SlySoft DEAD

I'm sorry to see AnyDVD go! Granted I've only used it a couple of times since I started using MakeMKV, it's still a great loss to consumers! But, if MakeMKV is based on AnyDVD HD, why are there warnings about the way AnyDVD HD does things in MakeMKV? When you have two different companies working on ...

Re: MakeMKV lifetime license ?

1 - For HD, it's a month. For SD, it's forever.
2 - I don't know.
3 - If you mean in German/Deutsch, if it isn't currently, I doubt it will be in the future.
4 - You're welcome!
5 - Check my sig for the link. You can also buy it in the program.

Re: Two identical streams for main movie - which to pick?

Instead of making MP4s, why not make smaller MKV files which will support all the good stuff that the MP4 container doesn't?

Re: Ripping Ironman 3 failed, ASUS BW-12B1S crashes & disapp

That appears to be an external drive, so make sure it isn't bus powered, and is plugged into a power adapter.

This was just recently posted to the Plex twitter stream:

Re: New to Makemvk and have a few questions...

Subtitles are a pain in the backside. Expect to have to go through plenty of trial and error to find the correct ones on occasions.

Re: How to tell which title to use

What a former user used to suggest was the copy the disc and then play the files and see what works. In this case, each of the 28GB files has Segment #11. Then you have two that are 536 and then 11, and one that is 537 and then 11. Maybe rip the first one and see if it starts with the beginning of t...

Re: Black bars - Image squashed

Your display is not 1.85, it's 1.78. That means that you will get black bars on the top and the bottom of the screen for anything with an aspect ratio greater than 1.78. You will get black bars on the sides of the screen for anything with an aspect ratio less than 1.78. Also, 2001 is not 1.85, it's ...

You could also alter the information in the mkv file with mkvtoolnix, rather than transcode the video.

Re: X Files (Both Movies), Skyfall and Live, Die, Repeat Fai

I had no problem with Skyfall, and I don't have those other movies.

Perhaps enabling the debugging option and posting the log will help us to figure out why it's not working.

MakeMKV does not back up DVDs, as it will only make MKV files of the content from DVD.
