* Option to automatically pick Lossless Audio tracks only instead of having to check them one at a time
* Automatically name Lossless Audio tracks based on format and channels, such as "DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1" for a DTS-HD MA track with 6 channels instead of "Lossless"

DTS-HD Master Audio (EX)
DTS-HD High Resolution Audio
DTS
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital Plus
Dolby TrueHD

* Automatically label Forced tracks as "Forced" and set the Forced mkvflag on it by default
* Ask to re-rip stream if MAJOR errors were encountered

This is coming. Not sure when, but it's on the list.

Why. Please describe when and how it should be useful.

MKToolnix also defaults to compressing PGS subs which suggests that compressed subs are more compatible (WD's ineptitude notwithstanding).

Last I read they turned off all compression in the last few updates of mkvmerge. Everything is compatible now. Guess they figured it was useless too.

Not a major issue for me as I still have to run it through mkvmerge after makemkv is done.

It's in the changelog if you search for compression. http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoo ... /ChangeLog

I was requesting a user friendly checkbox in the Options rather than a lengthy read of another thread. Thanks, I'll look into it. Hope we get a checkbox in the options. I only remux with lossless tracks. The others go in the garbage.

If something rips incorrectly, I'd like to know that I should rip it again. If the same error happens twice at the exact same spot, then I'll know it's a problem with the disc or drive rather than a bad remux. I ripped a movie and it completed OK, but when watching it there was a glitch in the video. Ripped it on another drive and it came out fine.

As for the subtitles, whatever it produces are not compatible. Running it through mkvmerge fixes it. It's not a big deal as I need to run it through again anyway to remove the subs I don't want as they sometimes repeat if there's more than one English subtitle track.

mkvmerge uses zlib compression by default, MakeMKV doesn't. But MakeMKV will use zlib compression if you use the WD TV profile.

Hello,

I too have been having trouble with the BluRay pgs subtitles playing on wdtv. I've looked at these boards and others and found two primary suggestions:
1) Use the WDTV profile on makemkv: Unfortunately, I can't find this option anywhere. Perhaps it is no longer available (I have latest version v1.8.3)
2) Use mkvtoolnix to run the mkv file through it, setting zlib compression for the subtitles: This does work to get the subtitles to show but the audio then gets wrecked (garbled and choppy). I also tried running it through without selecting the zlib compression; unfortunately this didn't work either.

I'd love to set up makemkv to use the "wdtv profile" since if this works, it will obviously reduce future rips to one step. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Ron

Do you have Expert mode enabled in the Preferences, General tab? The selection of profiles is part of the Advanced tab, which is only visible if you have Expert mode turned on.

The WD profile has been part of each distribution for some time.

I have an "updated" profile that tweaks the WD profile for my uses.

+1 on naming lossless audio tracks based on channel please.

That's just header removal compression. zlib compression of bitmap-based subtitles is still enabled.

True...zlib is actually needed for subs to display.

Just a little feature :

Be able to drag & drop the iso into the soft would be greatly appreciate. :)

New feature request...

Kind of a useless feature, but it looks cool during the ripping process. Use online database to show cover, info of movie/tv show being ripped.

Took 2 seconds to make this mockup...so don't shoot me.
