Does it support closed-source programs? Remember, only part of MakeMKV is "open source".

Flathub include Steam, Discord, Spotify and other. All are proprietary.

Creating a flatpak recipe for makemkv is relatively easy. I've done it and it works well. There's a bit of a glitch in "building" the binary module. The eula script fails. I think this is because the flatpak-build sandbox may be closing stdin. Easily worked around by patching out the eula script, but not something I would distribute without the eula intact.
