Re: Alex Cross MPLS file

A competitor's program (which is used only for ripping, and lacks mkv muxing), is able to tell which is the correct playlist on this type of disc. Out of respect, I will not name the program. The other program (which I also use for this purpose) does this very well. If you're going to use this meth...

Re: Feature request: don't open output file in exclusive mod

That's because they download in linear fashion with the headers already intact at the start of the download. MakeMKV has to go back and modify the headers at the end of processing to remove things like empty subtitle tracks, so it has to write over areas you could already be playing or at least chan...

Re: Set output filenames from title00.mkv, etc., to actual t

Enable Expert mode (View -> Preferences -> General).

You'll see a drop-down box in the right-hand pane which defaults to 'Name'. Click on that and choose 'Filename'. Then in the box to its right you enter the filename you want for each title.

Re: Paranormal Activity 4 Blyray flashed drive?

You're not on the newest version of MakeMKV. 1.7.71 should have been named 1.7.7.1 as it was a second build of 1.7.7.

1.7.10 is newer.

Re: Fie Naming

The default on every field is the metadata so it makes sense, from a consistency point of view, to have it change the metadata for the title name as well by default. You think the filename is more important, but that's in your use case scenario, not everybody's. I don't want to rip a title, realise ...

Re: Fie Naming

Respectfully, I disagree. Mkvtoolnix header editor is not difficult to use. No, it's not difficult to use. But you have to install it, and it is certainly more difficult than a simple operating system rename. The whole point of naming files from with in MakeMKV is to not have to rename them in the ...

Re: Fie Naming

Shouldn't File Name be the default and not Name ? Then derive Name from File Name instead of the other way around? That depends whether your own specific file naming will result in a meaningful title name that gets embedded in the file (for instance some people use periods instead of spaces and inc...

Blu-rays average 25GB for the couple of hundred I've ripped. DVDs around 7GB.

Re: Fie Naming

It's not the name of the movie you need to change, it's the filename. Ensure you have expert mode enabled and next to the movie name is a drop down box. Click on that and select 'filename' instead of 'name'. Then you can select the output filename you want.

Re: Fie Naming

I thought Mike fixed that long ago. I never use it though as I find it quicker to rename the files afterwards outside of MakeMKV.

View -> Preferences -> General -> Expert Mode

Then you'll find a drop-down box under Properties, which allows you to see/change the filename.

Re: Joining chapters of one film from two disc's.

In the chapter editor in MKVmerge open the second file. Then, starting with the last chapter and working backwards, rename them all. Then choose Save from the chapters menu. You need to do them in reverse order because it won't let you have two chapters with the same names. Once you've done that, go...

Re: Joining chapters of one film from two disc's.

I've found that when I appended files, chapters with the same name in the second file are discarded, so you have to rename (renumber) the chapters in the second MKV file prior to appending.

Then, in my experience, it's just worked fine straight out of the box.

Re: MKV file renaming?

Enable advanced mode in preferences and you'll get a dropdown alongside the title name which allows you to switch to choosing the filename instead.

There is one on the context menu. Just right-click and it's there.
