Re: Best settings for Direct Play on Plex?

There are three solutions here:
1. Figure out if there's a single set of codecs all your clients can play.
2. Have multiple video/audio codecs in your containers, to suit all your clients.
3. Have a server which is powerfull enough to transcode on the fly for multiple clients.

Re: Why does MakeMKV open the Terminal

I've never seen it, despite using the app hundreds of times.

Likely still in the DMG in your Downloads folder.

Re: "Fake playlist" protection - help needed

You can improve isolation by increasing the Minimum title length (seconds) to something high. I use 1800. Not really, since all playlist obfuscations are usually in the same order timewise. YMMV but I sent files earlier this year for Patriot's Day and Deepwater Horizon and the latest MakeMKV still ...

Re: Encoding while Ripping - is that ok?

I've done this for hundreds of files, without problems. Ripping does not appear to be slower either.

Re: New User

You are running the app from a virtual disk image, which is why it disappears, as the virtual disc becomes unmounted upon system shut down.

Solution: Copy the binary to your application folder.

Also, please provide a proper title next time you create a thread.

Re: Can Repeatedly Generate FATAL ERROR

I do regularly see crashes on macOS like you describe, which happens when MakeMKV can't read the disc properly, so you are not alone. Maybe I should start getting my USB stick out of my arse, and start sending in logs.. :P

Re: Can't decrypt "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban"?

Try cleaning the discs with a bit of soap. Fixes these kind of errors for me in 50% of the time.

Re: MKV and Plex

Are you following Plexs file and folder naming guidelines for adding media to the server? Because this should be a non-issue.

I use MakeMKV and MKVTool*nix extensively, and have never encountered this issue.

Re: Keep Orginal MKVs or Recompressed?

I only rip english and my native language tracks/subtitles (Unless of course, some other language is the only audio track), to save space. I always run them through Handbrake to compress the video track, because honestly, I can't tell the difference visually, and I prefer M4V containers over MKV for...

Re: No mkv Support in Future macOS 10.15.....

Apple has never supported MKV's ever, so they can't remove what they don't support. You might be mixing it up with macOS 10.15 likely only supporting 64 bit software, and the fact that MakeMKV needs 64 support in order to run? And even in that respect, there's no problem, since MakeMKV already is 64...

Re: Using Java Runtime Environment to get around obfuscation

I'm a bit confused here. I'm using linux and the log shows it finds java but it never identifies the correct play list even though others with the same disk have posted on this forum that it works for them (I think they used windows). What it shows in the log is: Found java version=1.8.0.191 path=/...
