Re: Conversion profile for anyone interested.

I'm late to the party here. Should I be using this custom profile or is the standard flac profile the ticket? I'm looking to playback raw mkv files directly from USB into the TV or sound bar but it's not liking the compressed multi channel audio. I'm obviously missing a step, like reprocessing the f...

Re: What are your playback setups?

I've been playing back these huge mkv files with the VLC player which will happily stream to my Sony TVs, Sound Bars, whatever Android device happens to be listening. Since I'm still quite new with the UHD blu ray ripping, well OK ripping of any media, I've not quite figured out the makemkv program ...

Re: .M4v to .MP4

I use the noteburner stuff for stripping the drm off Apple Music files and rented movies. The apps don't work on High Sierra yet, at least the M4V Converter Plus and are buggy as shit on Windows. Honestly, I hate them, but I did pay for them and have stripped probably 30K songs grabbed from Apple Mu...

Re: UHD Drive

Yes, Produplicator is the name of the seller on Amazon, the price was $100.00. Yeah he's not buying his stock from fry's that's for sure, or he's losing money on every sale. Damnit I wonder if Fry's will price match amazon, methinks no. The WH16NS40 is $53 today. Well a few more days I'm going to t...

Re: What is the correct play list [insert title here]?

The correct method is to use MediaInfo?

VLC is an unreliable method. VLC "guesses" the correct title and is not always right. Also, it has been my experience that even when right, the title number is off by 1.[/quote]

Re: Are there any drives left with the right specs?

What's going to happen when the supply of friendly drives finally dries up? People can start cross-flashing. I personally have crossed my LG WH16NS60 (fw 1.00, svc code NS60) to a WH14NS40 fw 1.00 Hopefully in the future there will be other methods of flashing that will make it easier for people. A...

Re: UHD Drive

That's encouraging to hear. Is produplicator the "available from these sellers" name on Amazon? How much did it end up costing you?

Re: UHD - Thor: Ragnarok - Correct Playlist

What do you guys do for audio for this? Suppose I want just the atmos track since I copy the mkv files to a usb stick and play them through my x800 player or st5000 sound bar (both Sony products). I've not yet learned how to name the audio tracks, not sure if it can be done just using the mkv file a...

Audio track selection.

I'm a relatively new makemkv user. I like to playback the files off a USB stick into my UHD players USB port. I've not figured out how to label which audio track is which and my playback system is not being helpful either. As an experiment I selected to rip only the 7.1 ATMOS Surround track so I'm a...

Re: What did I do wrong here with Java?

I have the same question. Looks like we both has our paths set incorrectly.
