Multiple Titles - which is the correct title ID to use?

Post by platypusman » Sat Jan 12, 2019 11:18 pm

I've read through other posts on this topic but can't seem to find an answer...

Following an article ( https://mysolutions.tech/2017/11/right- ... e_on_macOS ) I can use VLC to identify the correct title number, when there are multiple duplicates.

The problem is, in Make MKV, that title number is not listed.

For example VLC menu plays title 70. In Make MKV, the titles are 57, 58, 59, 61, 63, and 65. None of the titles listed has a duration that matches the correct title in VLC. Also they have one less chapter.

Is there another way to identify which title is the right one?

If you want title numbers to match VLC in MakeMKV, you have to set the minimum title length to zero seconds. Otherwise, the shorter titles aren't counted... but VLC counts them.

Thanks. I changed that setting to zero seconds, but it didn't seem to work (or even make any difference in the outcome of the scan).

Here is what I'm seeing in Make MKV:

VLC and MakeMKV uses different technics to "count" the titles. For me it's only a number and not comparable.
You should check the identified titles in MakeMKV which "Segment-Map" (in your picture 6-22) is included, also which Audio and Subtitle tracks are included. Best is to rip all 6 titles and compare the contens later with VLC. I do this always if ripping DVDs or Blu-rays with seasons or multiple content.
