Hey,
I just ripped Life of pi UHD-BD to a MKV file file and it worked great, but it contains a chapter 29 which is not playable in any player I tried yet.
It is not needed for the movie, since the movie is 02:07:xx long. The chapter is added after the movie. Is that a known issue of the disc or you need any more info like a log or anything?

I also had this same issue when I had my hard drive plugged directly into my LG B7 Oled. Now I use my PC as my Plex server and Life of Pi plays fine. It would freeze the TV's OS when it got to that part. Could be a hardware limitation. Nothing is wrong with the file though. Like you said its not a part of the movie just a short video of different animals.

MakeMKV, MediaInfo and all players I tested show the longer duration. Compare the reported time of the movie of the 1080p Blu-ray with the reported time of the 4K UHD Blu-ray.

I used MKVToolNix to cut off the wrong chapter, but I am really interested if that is an error of any kind, I think of an mastering error.
