Re: A Better Way To Find The Correct Playlist/Segment Map

I think everyone needs multiple methods to find the correct playlist. A "best" method does not exist. For example the German Blu-Ray of X-Men: Days of Future Past has two relevant playlists. Finally it differs in two m2ts streams. One where you can see the nacked backside of Wolverine and one where ...

How to cut MKV on the exact frame / before sound starts?

I'm using usually MKVToolNix to cut MKVs without the need to transcode them. But MKVToolnix does not have any preview or wave analyzer built-in. Sometimes I really like to cut at the exact position and not only at second X. Which tool could I use instead or how could I determine the exact Nanosecond...

Re: Total Recall (2012)

A playlist (.mpls) does not only contain a table, which of the "STREAM" files in which order should be used. It also has tables that define, which subtitles and which audio tracks from the stream file(s) should be available to the player software. I know that. The question is how to determine the c...

Batch / Command Line Conversion of SUP to SRT

Sometimes its really funny. I'm rippping several weeks now. In this time I tried to find out if there is any app out there being able to batch convert multiple graphical VobSUB (DVD) and PGS SUP (Blu-Ray) subtitles to SRT (text). It seemed that there is no solution out there and even the most popula...

Re: MKVsortbyAudio bash shell script to sort MKVs by audio codec

As you can see this MKV is moved to the "AC3" folder as the best German audio track is "AC3 Stereo": 2019-11-22 17_57_23.jpg Instead, this MKV has been moved to "DTS" as the German "AC3 Stereo" track has less channels than the 5.1 DTS track (and finally is an AC3 stereo track that follows a 5.1 trac...

MKVsortbyAudio bash shell script to sort MKVs by audio codec

One of the steps I need after MakeMKV generated the MKV is to add a missing AC3 audio track to avoid transcoding through Plex as most of my clients to not support DTS. I do not like the internal conversion of MakeMKV as it takes ages to rip and convert multiple discs. Instead I create the discs and ...

Why I prefer AC3 over AAC

Many people use Plex, Emby, Kodi etc to play their movies. These players are able to convert for example a DTS track while playing the movie to AAC or AC3 if the client does not support DTS. Many people add an AAC track to avoid this transcoding. Of course this is a good idea, but instead you should...

Multiple MKVs per movie are supported as well: While exporting all subtitles: 2019-11-20 00_30_26.jpg Result: 2019-11-20 00_32_49.jpg Because of that it supports TV shows as well, but only if your episodes are not located in season subfolders as mkv2sub does not crawl those sub-subfolders (not yet, ...

Re: mkv2sup - Auto export and determine forced subtitles

Finally you can drag & drop the SUP files into Subtitle Edit and convert them to SRT:

mkv2sup - Auto export and determine forced subtitles

I finished this "little" bash script to automatically export all subtitles of all MKVs and determine the forced subtitles of them. Forced subtitles are determined by their filesize (<3MB works for 99% of my Blu-Ray rips) or if the subtitle track name already has the track name "Forced". For example ...
