Re: MakeMKV drops non-empty audio tracks?

It comes down to how the disk is mastered - the only work around I have found for it is to rip both, and use MKVmerge to create a new MKV file with the combined audio and subtitle tracks.

I've only had to do it for BD releases, though.

Re: Unable to rip a blu-ray due to ccextrator error on Big Sur

Work around is to NOT select closed caption subtitles.

Or you can set the path to ccextractor to /bin/true which will cause it to be ignored.

Re: How do I create an MKV and maintain Dolby Vision

Top of the UHD Disk forum: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux (over 4,500 messages on how to make it work).

Also MakeMKV 1.15.4 and Dolby Vision and 1.15.1 discuss creating MKV files with DV in them (and what it takes to play them).

Re: How do I create an MKV and maintain Dolby Vision

There are two major topics covering making Dolby Vision playable, and it isn't a "do this and you're done" sort of thing.

There is no simple recipe, and you have to deal with some tools that do not have graphic interfaces.

Re: TV series disc not showing individual episodes?

Not all that unusual. Can be really "phun" when they put 50 or more episodes in a single playlist (Standard definition on a BD). The fix is to split them after the rip. I do it with handbrake, because EVERYTHING goes through handbrake before it gets dropped on the media server. But, it can be done w...

Re: MakeMKV misses a title?

More likely, the length of the title is smaller than your minimum title length. Slideshow titles have WEIRD times on them, in my experience.

If it didn't show up with zero for the time, it may be even weirder than the ones I've encountered.

Re: Ugly subtitles

MakeMKV copies the subtitles found on the disk (DVD, BD, UHD) to the MKV file. These are graphic images, with their style defined by the disk author. Unless your player is substituting its own subtitles in, what you see is what was on the original, "pretty" or "ugly". If you are using an external SR...

The log should have said to send the .tgz files to svq@makemkv.com for analysis. Anything else will slow the process down.

Re: Read Speeds? LG BP50NB40

Read speeds are marketing hype. They can be reached under certain conditions, but the general case isn't as rosey. There is a limit to how fast the disks can be spun. Besides the "fly apart explosively" speed limit, some drives do not get enough power to spin at their max rate. But, the linear bit d...

Re: Asus BW-16D1HT 3.10 on Unbuntu no longer reading Blu ray discs

Restarting your computer does not reset the computer hardware. Since they've dropped the reset button from most computers nowadays, you have to remove power to get the motherboard to actually reset hardware to a known state.

Re: Playback Regions?

Once it is in MKV format, there is no more region coding. Getting there depends on your drive. Most DVD drives can be made to ignore the region code during ripping. MakeMKV will tell you if it had an issue bypassing it. I haven't seen any of my Bluray drives complain about region coding (BD regions ...

Re: MakeMKV does not display englisch audio tracks

In the mkvtoolnix GUI, the header editor will do the trick for changing the metadata. I've been making extensive use of it recently, for different reasons.

Re: MakeMKV does not display englisch audio tracks

MakeMKV displays the metadata for the tracks. If there are none tagged as English, they won't be displayed as being English. Sometimes it depends on the play list. GKids movies often have different play lists for "English" and "Japanese", where only one language is available. To get a bilingual file...

Re: Transcode UHD mkv to JUST < 50GB to fit on 50GB BDR-DL: Best app / settings to shrink mkv & (retain DV / HDR)?

The handbrake forum is the place to check for improving your settings. The standard advice, though, is to start with the presets, and move on from there if needed.

Keeping HDR is relatively new; you're going to have to work with their nightly builds to do it.
