Re: Delete Statistics Tags Issue

It should be worth it in the long run. You're missing out on 7 years of progress.

Do the makemkv files play fine? That could be a clue.

Re: Delete Statistics Tags Issue

You don't need to use the command line. If you use the GUI there's an "additional options" option in the Merge Tool>>Output tab that lets you try each of the options using nothing more than a checkbox. Try each of them, if you find one that works add it to MKVToolNix GUI>>Preferences>>Default Values...

Re: Delete Statistics Tags Issue

The MKVMerge version you're using is ancient, it's not capable of dealing with the tags properly.

Unless you have a VERY good reason for using that particular version of MKVMerge you should be using the current one.

He used "output file" as a singular, otherwise I wouldn't have said anything.

Re: How do you make the output file smaller?

?

Any given file created by MakeMKV should be smaller than the files that it was created from. Unless of course seamless branching causes a single m2ts file to be used multiple times within a single playlist, which is possible but not likely, especially in this case.

Re: How do you make the output file smaller?

The resulting file is NOT bigger than the source. That's simply not possible unless you've duplicated audio streams. MakeMKV copies the media data unaltered from the blu ray m2ts files into MKVs, and MKV overhead is much smaller, therefore the resulting files will be smaller.

Re: 4:3 video looks bad

25 fps wasn't a fast enough frame rate and the original CRT technology didn't allow for 50 full frames per second, so instead the engineers of the time decided to transmit 50 half frames per second. DVDs combine those half frames into full frames, they're supposed to be deinterlaced on playback but ...

Re: Inconsistent output from MakeMKV (2016)

Each chapter requires a unique unique ID, otherwise if you try to append the files MKVMerge will mess up your chapters by design. I don't know if MakeMKV assigns unique unique IDs to attachments, but that could be a consideration too. If a chapter or attachment UID happens to fit in a smaller number...

Re: makemkvcon access via DiscId?

You can request anything you like, as whether Mike implements it, from what I've learned sitting on this forum for the last two years it's highly unlikely. I'm not even sure that's the official way you're supposed to get the DiscID, it's just the only combination of commands I've found that doesn't ...

Re: DTS:X decoding bug in MakeMKV 1.9.7 / libdca

You'll find it interesting to know that I encountered a FLAC file made by MakeMKV from a non-DTS:X DTS-MA stream that EAC3To decided had clipping and ran through a second pass. Apparently when MakeMKV encounters clipping in MA it ignores it and just writes it into the destination codec, or at least ...

If you want a list of drives, you get it like this: makemkvcon -r info disc MSG:1003,32,3,"DEBUG: Code 32 at y_&$8m<rv8,eR8UTI~2oL:29393884","DEBUG: Code %1 at %2:%3","32","y_&$8m<rv8,eR8UTI~2oL","29393884" MSG:1003,32,3,"DEBUG: Code 32 at y_&$8m<rv8,eR8UTI~2oL:29393884","DEBUG: Code %1 at %2:%3","3...

Re: makemkvcon access via DiscId?

I've gone through the exe with a hex editor and there's no command called 'list'.

It either means something other than the obvious or it's wrong.

Re: Several titles in the same file

That shouldn't happen.

If there's five titles on five separate lines in the list, then by definition you should get five titles output as files.

Maybe you should explain a little better.
