When I compiled MakeMKV from source, it could not get past the "Loading" state when reading a disk.
So I uninstalled that and tried using the MakeMKV flatpak instead. This seems to be working great so far.
A challenge with the flatpak version though seems to be how to get it to integrate with VLC. The solution I went with was:
* Take the libmmd.so.0 from my earlier build attempt and copy it back into /usr/lib.
* Create an executable "makemkvcon" script in /usr/bin that has this content:
(This is on elementary OS which is an Ubuntu 18 variant.)
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh /usr/bin/flatpak run --branch=stable --arch=x86_64 --command=makemkvcon com.makemkv.MakeMKV "$@"
So far so good!
