Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

Neither of my Popcorn Hours (A-200 and C-200) support LPCM playback so any time I encounter a BD title with LPCM it has to be converted to a lossless format. DTS-HD MA is nice as it's supported on all modern receivers. I'm fine with FLAC too, but since I have the DTS-HD encoder I just use that. Roma...

Re: OSX Mountain Lion BDMV Folders

I just saw the other post in this forum about downloading the latest version of MakeMKV which can open the BDMV "packages" in Mountain Lion, so that's great. However, I am still getting Failed to open disc messages on a lot of movies now. Here is an example log message: DEBUG: Code 0 at gAY/Yd9#R\Pn...

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

Thanks Romansh! I'll give that a try soon. I know I should have just bitten the bullet and used ffmpeg to begin with. These GUIs are always lacking one or two things that I want to do. Wouldn't it be nice if there was one program that combined the best MakeMKV, mkvtoolnix, tsmuxer, eac3to and ffmpeg...

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

Bummer, I'll have to take that back... I didn't test the file thoroughly when I posted that. MKVExtract did extract the PCM track successfully, but after encoding to DTS-HD MA with the same number of channels (in this case it was 1.0 Mono), I just get garbled noise in the remuxed MKV. It probably ha...

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

That worked! :D With iMkvExtract I was able to extract just the PCM track, which created a file with a .??? extension in Mac OS. I then renamed the extension to .wav and was able to encode to other formats. Thanks for the tip!

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

That worked, thanks. Unfortunately the cleaned mkv still doesn't display a feature list in eac3to :( The file pays back fine in VLC, but because of that LPCM track, I can't get any audio via my receiver & Popcorn Hour. Guess ffmpeg is my last option.

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

Thanks! For Mac OS, it's not liking the double dash before remux. Is there a different command for Terminal users?

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

Thanks guys, but I'm kind of back where I started, in not being familiar with how to build/install these programs in order to run them at the command line. I'm a front end kind of guy what can I say :oops: Paulster, if you wouldn't mind could you explain how to install Mkclean?

Re: How to convert PCM into Flac

Hey guys, sorry for bumping an old thread, but I'm in desperate need of help. I've got a particular MKV that contains a LPCM track, and I've never had trouble before now in using the HdBrStreamExtractor GUI for eac3to to extract a LPCM track to separate WAV files. However this particular MKV simply ...

Re: Activation Key Doesn't Work For 1.7

I'm on Mac OS X and I can verify that setting back the system time does NOT get MakeMKV to work (I tried versions 1.7 and 1.6.2). I tried a day, a week and a month in the past and still get "Evaluation period has expired." I even deleted all MakeMKV files from my computer, rebooted, reinstalled diff...
