Black frames on top and sides of 16:9 video

I used makeMKV to save my DVDs of the old series "Westwing". Seasons 1 and 2 with several DVDs are ripped perfectly. But season 3 is ripped in 16:9 with black frames all around the image (top, bottom and sides). --- Weirdly, one short scene at the beginning is displayed in 4:3 with black just at the...

Re: Broken after upgrade to 18.10

Thanks, but that's weird. I never had to do this. I just upgraded every time it said so.

Broken after upgrade to 18.10

I upraded my Lubuntu from 18.04 to 18.10.

When trying to start MakeMKV it gave an error "failed to initialise". So I downloaded the two files and went through the installation. Now it starts up but says I have to download a newer version.

Any hints?

Re: One Title missing but log shows all titles have been added

I was now able to extract the missing title by using the right keyword for opening up the title manually: 15:1 I am still curious why both titles of that kind had been skipped. Using direct disc access mode Open DVD manually : "15:1 15:2 16:1 16:2 8:1 8:2" Title #15 was added (1 cell(s), 0:03:58) Ti...

One Title missing but log shows all titles have been added

Hi, my DVD has 16 titles. MakeMKV does just show 15 Titles after opening the disk. As you can see the log shows that 33 titels are checke, number 33 is dismissed (too short), which leaves 32 titels and then each title is double so every second title of one VTS is skipped (16 titels are skipped). Thi...

Problems with Sound (AC3) since libmakemkv v1.10.2

Since the update to v1.10.2 in end of 2016 I experience problems with my 5.1 sound. Background noises are too loud and blending into the dialogues. I have seasons of the same series that sound differently, e.g. the first season of Story of Film is okay, the second one is not okay. The first season o...

Re: Automatically Name Forced Sub Tracks to Forced?

Hi, can I join the conversation? For the first time now I try to add forced subtitels (Narcos, they are speaking Spanish often, I want English forced subtitles). But MakeMKV shows me in the German version of the DVD just three subtitles: two German and one English. So how can I find forced subtitles...

Re: Story Of Film

Awesome! I can check the mkv for the audio and other properties. I did it once but can't remember the way. I also can check the TV model tomorrow.

Re: Story Of Film

Thanks! I do indeed use the advanced mode, but just for the selection rule ("-sel:all,+sel:(favlang|nolang|single),-sel:(havemulti|havecore),-sel:mvcvideo,=100:all,-10:favlang,-sel:subtitle") and the profile above it is set to "default". So, what you are saying is that this one dvd(box) probably use...

Re: Story Of Film

Hey Woodstock, I saw you answering my other posting regarding the same issue (after ripping a second DVD from that box). I am not doing something with FLAC, i guess. But I would be curious to where this would be chosen in the settings. So I can make sure it is not the problem. So, to what section of...

Re: Volume of Sound fluctuating after upgrade to v1.10.1

Thank you for your answers and sorry for my late reply. I don't think I do something like processing to FLAC. I use normal settings and my only advanced settings are regarding the automatic selection of language and subtitles. Also, the second opinion might not be my problem, because the sound is ba...

Why do I need to play a DVD in VLC to make it "openable"

I experience that MakeMKV fails to open DVDs. I have to play them in VLC, first. Then, after they have been played once, MakeMKV can open them without failure. I have two PCs running Ubuntu 16.04 and I only experience this on one of them. I remember to have been reading something about it and maybe ...
