"Manual" mode for blurays

So TV show blurays (I've seen it on Animes), doesn't have per episode playlists, but simply a single playlist that it jumps into the middle of for individual episodes (and hence will continue playing from that point till end of playlists). This is suboptimal for ripping to MKV. It be nice if one cou...

Re: MakeMKV is case sensitive on file extension

as far as I can tell (perhaps I've missed it), on Linux, you can't specify this. Hence, I view this as sort of a bug report. It seems my instinct was wrong and one can't make it case insensitive with a simple boolean, others have the same issues in different QT programs. also my issue might be in pa...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

Weird question. read this as future looking, if not possible today, the question is what's reasonable to expect in future (i.e. is it just a software engineering problem to be solved as people know how to do it, just it hasn't been done yet) is it possible to convert easily (losslessly?) between dif...

Re: MakeMKV is case sensitive on file extension

MakeMKV is as case-sensitive as the operating system it is running on.To be able to fake case-insensitivity in the browse window on Linux, you would have to search for "*.[iI][sS][oO]" you can't specify extension when trying to open an iso (or at least I don't see how to). The file picker can speci...

MakeMKV is case sensitive on file extension

wanted to open an iso file that had an ISO extension (got messed up on a case insenstive file system) and the file browser / chooser in MakeMKV on linux didn't display it. When I renamed it to .iso, it instantly appeared in the open browser/chooser. my guess is that the case sensitive flag should no...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

Have just created an ATMOS/DV for Gemini Man and have a few questions for the group. My process is simple: Clean ISO -> MPLS -> TSMuxer->TS or M2TS. Questions: 1) Why is the M2TS file 1.5GB larger? The same source file was used for both results - I simply used a different muxing option (TS vs M2TS)...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

If one open a Dolby Vision mkv created with 1.51.1 with 1.15.1, there's no indication that the video is dolby vision, it just shows Codec: MpegH HEVC Main10@L5.1 while somewhat cosmetic, it probably should show the dolby vision? There's no support yet in any playback software or mediainfo to detect...

Re: LibMMBD Integration Only for Blu-Ray Discs?

dvd's are well understood. css has been broken for a long time, it can be brute forced off an iso (works mostly except for small VOBs where it sometimes doesn't have enough data) or with a key negoation if a physical disk in the drive. so, a) libbmmbd doesn't do libdecss, just libaacs and libbdplus ...

Re: Curious, How do Extended Editions Work on BD? MKV files Larger than OG BD?

I agree that blurays are conceptually simpler than what dvd implemented. all i was saying was that it be interesting if makemkv could recognize the situation where bluray playlists were sharing streams and give the ability to create these "ordered chapters" mkv files.

Re: Exporting physical blurays

its one mount point per bluray (physical or image). you would see a lot of m2ts files, but if you knew the right playlist was X, you would just play X.m2ts yea relaized my initial post was unclear. this "mounts" a bluray but instead of seeing the blurays file system, this contents of the mounted fil...

Re: Curious, How do Extended Editions Work on BD? MKV files Larger than OG BD?

from the olden days https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=897 but I'm not sure how well all players will play these mkvs. It be interesting if MakeMKV could recognize when you have a seamless branching title and group them in the UI and allow you to select more than one as well as marking wh...

Re: Uncut Gems / New Redbx movies Copy Protection Screen issue.

Isn't uncut gems a screenpass protected release and hence one has to pick the right playlist (title in MakeMKV speak). MakeMKV can't be guaranteed to pick the right one.

Exporting physical blurays

built a fuse file system (in go) that enables one to take their physical buray in their drive and mount decrypted m2ts files (1 per playlist). this can then be further exported via samba (tested by playing on kodi on my android tv) https://github.com/sjpotter/bluray-http-server/tree/bd-fs (i.e. bran...
