With Java installed, MakeMKV identified this playlist as the main feature:

515,504,508,501,512,511,502,507,514,503,509,513,510

Testing it now.

Stupid me forgot to list the actual playlist, which is 667. Sorry...

Netflix has 00667.mpls and MakeMKV adds it as title #3 (I exclude any title length <1100 seconds) and not in the numerical order, interestingly enough. 00664.mpls is title # 145 and 00676.mpls is title #146.

has anyone determined the REDBOX version? the disk doesn't look to be a rental version but it still populate so many fake playlists. I tried 667 but the audio is broken throughout the movie.

My Mac won't play DD TrueHD soundtracks. They cut in and out. DD plays fine. Also, I seem to recall that with DD TrueHD you have to save both HD and regular DD soundtracks for the HD soundtrack to work.

I can confirm that 667 is correct for RedBox. The TrueHD soundtrack worked fine, with both it and the DD extracted. You also want to enable the second English subtitle.

Can you explain to me what you did to have MakeMKV identify which item is the main feature?

On my laptop, if I play with VLC, TrueHD tracks will cut in and out as you say. But if I use mpv.io, there's no playback issues. So it could be your Mac's processing ability, but it could also be the processing ability of the software you use.

My understanding is that TrueHD 7.1 has a 5.1 core, and if your Blu-ray player/receiver setup is non-Atmos, it will use the 5.1 core as a fallback if there are no other audio tracks. Some discs also add a dedicated 5.1 track.

If you rip both the 7.1 and the nested 5.1, in the resulting MKV file you are going to wind up with two separate audio tracks, both tracks taking up the full amount of space. If you only want the 7.1, you don't need to select the nested 5.1 as well.

Thankfully looks like no playlist hassles on the UK release. Single m2ts with a playlist that uses it, and the rest of the playlists ruled out by MakeMKV as duplicates.

A quick correction; the receiver only needs to process high-resolution audio codecs like Dolby TrueHD and DTS Master Audio to play back .mkv files that have these audio tracks, otherwise it can or will need to default to the core standard Dolby Digital or DTS tracks. The receiver does not have to be Dolby Atmos or DTS:X capable to handle Dolby TrueHD or DTS Master Audio.

Ah, thanks - I meant playback off disc as general info before getting into the MKV side of things, but your point may still apply. I don't have enough knowledge on the sound side of things since I don't own any sound hardware at the moment, I tend to focus my knowledge on the picture side of things :)

I just, again, tried configuring MakeMKV with various versions of the JRE to have it auto-identify the main title for Valerian and it doesn't seem to do anything. How does this main track auto-detection work?
