select multiple preferred languages

Currently, one can select a preferred language and MakeMKV will automatically deselect any language that doesn't match that. This makes life easy. However, if we want multiple languages (say we are english speakers, but if we want to get practice reading or hearing spanish, we might want to automati...

automatically disable core audio checking?

So for a lot of DTA-MA audio, makemkv will always select both for me, the extension and the core, when all I want is the MA stream in my mkv. Can we get an option to not automatically select the core? I understand why some want it, but many of us do not need it so an option to avoid extra clicking w...

Re: stream mode removed, but documentation not updated

I know all that, I'm using libbluray to parse it, which feeds me the title, but loses the metadata that isn't part of the m2ts stream. I'm in the process of teaching myself m2ts so I can edit the stream on the fly adding the metadata back in. In my case, the change doesn't help me as the libmmbd onl...

Re: stream mode removed, but documentation not updated

now to explain why I was looking at this. I'm trying to enable decrypted bluray images (stored on my nas) to be streamed, which is actually surprisingly easy to do (i.e. libbluray data dumped to http output). however, the resulting m2ts output is stripped of language (and chapter) metadata as it isn...

Re: HD DVD Discussions Forum? Bitrot & ddrescue?

yes, I use ddrescue all the time for blurays and dvds on linux. For dvds I need to auth the disc on rpc2 drives (lsdvd /dev/dvd does the trick). For blurays don't have to do anything (assuming one has the vuk elsewhere) if not a bus encryption drive or disc. If a bus encryption drive, for blurays I ...

Re: MakeMKV files vs original VIDEO_TS/.IFO for archival/future proofing purposes?

the main advantage of mkv over ifo/iso structure is that ifo/iso structure hides multiple things inside of it, this doesn't play nice with "media centers" like kodi / plex, which only provide one entry per media the main advantage(s) of keeping it in info structure is if you like menus and if you wa...

Re: Why no full backup for DVDs?

the reason makemkv does full bluray backups and not DVD, is because there is value in makemkv doing a "protected" backup for blurays (i.e. doesn't have the keys to decrypt it yet) and doing an unprotected backup is just easy. While for DVDs, there's little need for it as can basically be always be b...

Re: Why no full backup for DVDs?

In linux its very very easy to make an encrypted backup of a DVD 1) install libdvdcss 2) run lsdvd <dvd device> # uses libdvdcss to authenticate the disc ot the drive, without doing this, will get many read failures 3) ddrescue <dev device> test.iso test.log this will write out the image to test.iso...

make a decrypted backup from encrypted backup?

It seems impossible to take an encrypted backup and turn it into a decrypted backup. (i.e. makemkv goes directly to the title selection and makemkvcon backup requires a disc input). Any chance support for taking an encrypted backup and turning it into a decrypted backup can be added? edit: take the ...
