Blu ray cover art

Post by redstang » Mon Sep 21, 2015 12:12 am

I have started ripping my blu rays, and when extracting disks I always choose the cover art cover.jpg attachment. I have done several now however just noticed that no cover art appears to be added to the mkv files. I looked in the faq and searched this forum but have not found anything that discusses how or if makemkv will add cover art, and if so, if it can be made visible in windows and/or if Plex will see it.

Secondly, is the cover art jpg file in most blu-rays not really the cover art? The last couple I looked at were not.

Otherwise, is the only solution to manually add it yourself using some other tool?

It is added as an attachment inside MKV file. VLC, for example, will display it.

But the jpgs aren't being added, that's why I'm asking. They images don't display in VLC, and also in looking for a solution I downloaded MKVtoolnix and opened the mkv files and that doesn't show that there are any attachments in the container.

Has this been resolved? I am seeing the same thing. I select the "attachment" .jpg file to be included but it is not getting included.

MakeMKV seems to have the same issue here ( running version 1.10.8 ). I always check select art to be included when backing up blu-rays, but the art doesn't seem to be there no matter what software I use to access the MKV files.
