Re: Corrupt or invalid at offset 89866240 - 89585664

Cleaning the disk will probably help a lot. The longer disks are stored, the more likely they're contaminated with chemicals from the packaging process.

Re: Slow converting

Best answer I can give is, "It depends!" Using an external drive, you have multiple factors involved, including the speed of the connection of the drive. With an LG drive, you add the possibility that it is currently "rate limited" by the firmware to about 2X ripping of video content. And some BDs a...

Re: Audio issues ripping Region A disks, to play on region B blu ray player.

When ripping, you can have MakeMKV also copy the lossy core of the DTS-HD MA track to its own track, specifically because some software and devices cannot handle the lossless version. The "full" track contains the lossy part for compatibility with older devices, but... let's just say that not everyt...

Re: Audio issues ripping Region A disks, to play on region B blu ray player.

Did you rip the disk to MKV files, or do a backup? Backup will preserve the region information, but usually you'll see a message about "wrong region" instead of the audio being mush. It is possible your player isn't capable of dealing with the audio codec, and tries to pass it off to the TV, which a...

Re: AV synchronization issues since last update to 1.14.7

The player shows no audio tracks, or no audio plays?

What player are you using? I know that some (all?) versions of VLC have issues with DTS-HD MA tracks. Windows needs "codec packs" for the Microsoft player apps.

Re: AV synchronization issues since last update to 1.14.7

Because the AVsync messages are a bug in the display of the "no forced subtitles" message. If there really were AVsync issues, there would be information about how far out of sync the audio was, and what was done to correct it. It will not prevent audio being put into the MKV file. Lack of audio is ...

This isn't the same issue.

Did you recently tell MakeMKV you have a "preferred language", in Preferences->Language?

Re: What do you guys do with your DVD copies from Blu-ray/DVD combo packs?

I do the same thing with the DVDs as I do with the BDs, put them in a storage box with the others. Neither is coming out of the box unless there is a reason to rip it again, because I discover that I screwed up something in encoding it and have already deleted the raw rip. The DVDs don't leave the c...

Re: multiple dvds not ripping

Sigh. It's a bug what was not manifesting itself. It happens only on discs that falsely claim closed-captions subtitles. Two workarounds, if you encounter a disc like that: 1. when selecting tracks, deselect the "cc->text" subtitle steams, as they are empty anyway. This is the easiest and fastest w...

Re: 4K Avengers Endgame error

If the errors were about not being able to read sectors, the only thing that can help that is cleaning or replacement.

However, if you do a backup of the disk, and that completes without error, you can have MakeMKV read that to make an MKV with the audio track you want.

Re: Home Alone (Italian BD+) does not decode

There are rarely answers to submission emails; primarily, the response is an updated SVQ file being available that MakeMKV can pull when needed. Assuming you have "contact web server for updates" enabled, and it still isn't decoding, there may be an issue with it. With debug logging turned on, there...

Re: Issue Ripping Babylon 4 S1 Disc 4

Best bet if you've cleaned it is if you have someone local that has, and knows how to operate , a disk resurfacing machine. Prior to that, however, you can try my old stand-by... cleaning with Pledge furniture polish. It is a water-soluble wax that can fill minor surface scratches. Spray it on, rub ...
