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.

Re: Price

In Avangate's world. The same Avangate that doesn't respond to emails or PMs, and seemingly offers the worst customer service of any retailer in the known world.

But, unfortunately, we're stuck with them for the time being.

Re: Problem backup blu-ray to mkv with VC-1 interlaced

Use a different player. Interlaced VC-1 is a problem for a number of players. The MKV file itself is fine.

Re: Subtitles and MakeMKV

MakeMKV doesn't set the forced subtitle flag; you have to do it yourself. A lot of players don't handle forced subs very well (some will switch on all forced subs or the highest numbered stream when there is more than one track flagged as forced, for instance) so it extracts them but doesn't flag th...

Re: HD-DVD Headaches

eac3to (free) can pull out the video track and remove the pulldown flags at the same time. Then MKVtoolnix (also free) can merge the video stream back into the MKV in place of the original stream. Since I've done this to all my files to get true 24p video you might find that the process of demuxing ...

Re: HD-DVD Headaches

I've ripped 20 or so for playback on the Popcorn Hour and had no real problems. To get 24p video you need to demux, remove the pulldown flags and remux, but that wouldn't stop it playing. And subs cause an issue but they can easily be converted to PGS. One thought though: are you using an AV decoder...

Re: Best Quality help

MakeMKV doesn't alter the video or audio streams at all (hence its processing speed) so the quality will be identical to the original source disc.

Re: Star Wars: The Complete Saga Bluray visual impaired trac

Is there more than one title on the disc? You might find you've actually selected the wrong title.

Re: Am I missing something?

I think you'll find the majority of people that use MakeMKV want the 30GB files for ultimate quality, but don't want the Blu-ray container or all the extras and other fripperies that purely waste disk space.

It's the same reason why I'd never consider ripping my CDs to MP3.

Re: Bluray with 3D and 2D on one disc

Is there a checkbox for the MVC extension by the video selection, or something along those lines? The MVC extension is what turns the 2D video into a 3D one. Disable that and you'll be left with a 2D file.

I don't have any 3D Blu-rays either so I haven't seen the option myself.

Re: Bluray Region Codes

MKVs don't have region codes, so your player and/or TV won't have an issue with the MKV file unless it can't actually play the particular format of the video (24p, 50i, 60i, 50p or 60p) that's in the MKV file.
