Duplicate Files

Post by fabltd » Fri Feb 09, 2018 8:13 pm

Hello

I am converting some Blu-Ray backups into MKV files.

I am using the following command:

makemkvcon mkv file:/mnt/raw-movie/Frozen/ all /mnt/Movies/'Frozen (2014)' --minlength=600

This result is:

24G Feb 9 16:30 Frozen_t01.mkv
24G Feb 9 16:41 Frozen_t02.mkv
5.6G Feb 9 16:43 Frozen_t03.mkv
15G Feb 9 16:49 Frozen_t04.mkv

Why are there duplicated main features:

All 4 files seem to be the main feature.

Am i missing something.

Thanks

Disney movie. The difference between the first two files is what language the titles and credits are displayed in. Some will have three; English, French, and Spanish.

On almost all Disney movies, the first will be English.

Yes, they all have all the same audio and subtitle choices. It's just what you see on the opening/closing screens, USUALLY.

Exceptions would be scenes with a lot of signs or other text, they might swap those out for local language, but I haven't seen this on the movies I have.

Any idea how to tell. And to stop wasting time ripping multiple copies?

If it's a Disney animated title, the main ENGLISH feature will have 800 in its file name (displayed in the Info window when you highlight the title).

I think 801 is French, and 802 is Spanish. Might be the other way around.
