Re: I want a mkv in h264, no vc1.

thanks but i like best quality and Handbrake not lossless copy 1:1 Sorry if I didn't make it clear but since the disk is vc1 and your tv doesn't support vc1 then you can either: 1) reencode with handbrake or similar ffmpeg/x264 gui Or 2) buy a new playback device that supports vc1 those are your op...

Re: One success, two failures

Hi, try playing back with mplayer instead. VLC is known to suck with mkv.

Re: Subtitles and forced subtitles

Hi, you can use mkvextract (part of official MKVtoolnix) to extract the sup file. Free open source, and cross platform. I believe there is also a gui for windows. http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/ *no need to use the payware crap from above... which has stolen its code from ffmpeg and mkv...

Use MakeMKV on the Original bluray disc without anydvd and see if the problem persists.

Re: Compression

Hi, compression inherently takes a long time and handbrake is one of the more "noob friendly" GUI's available (All free tools are based on the same set of tools. x264 and ffmpeg). You can make handbrake go very fast though. But if you want good compression at reasonable file sizes: 1.) resize to 720...

Re: Invalid MIT-MAGIC-COOKIE-1 keymakemkv: cannot connect to

What version of debian? All packages up to date? Post console log...

You cant just say "it doesnt work" and expect us to figure out whats wrong!

btw /usr/bin/ should be included in your $PATH, so you can just call makemkv from anywhere.

Re: MakeMKV to NMT

I have a NMT!

The main movie is made from a playlist which may contain alternate scenes. MakeMKV puts alternate scenes in a separate mkv file.

Re: Direct video streaming

No, PS3 will not play mkv natively. It will play m2ts which is what makemkv exposes in the streaming feature.

Re: makemkv doesnt work - kubuntu 10.10

Hi, yes it appears to be a bug. Weather it is with makemkv, or with the kubuntu provided Qt library files I do not know. My only advice is to:
1.) update system
2.) ask in ubuntu forums, or in their IRC channel
3.) wait for mike to respond.
