Masterpiece Theatre: Little Women playlist

Post by nunit » Fri Jul 13, 2018 5:05 pm

Does anyone know the correct playlists for the 3 episodes of the Masterpiece Theatre Little Women blu-ray (US retail)? I tried figuring this out on my own after decrypting the entire disc with MakeMKV and then playing the disc in VLC. I was able to get the BD-J menu to work, but VLC is clearly not selecting the correct playlists as every episode appeared to show the same segments, including some with the "copy detected" message.

It looks like AnyDVD may been updated to accommodate this disc. Thanks in advance!

almost all of the PBS releases actually don't need BD-J. all the BD-J does is setup on registers that HDMV code uses to play the correct playlist. AnyDVD actually just short cuts all the BDJ code and just sets the registers "manually".

With that said, I literally just ripped it myself with anydvd and it reports 783,784,566

Thanks a bunch thetoad! I used the playlists you specified, then compared the extracted subtitles to a set downloaded from subscene. They matched, so I'm confident these playlists are correct. I found it odd that 783 and 784 each had only one segment, whereas 566 had 21, which is closer to what I expected for all of them.

Here are the full details for each:

Episode 1
Source file name: 00783.mpls
Duration: 1:01:23
Chapters count: 7
Size: 13.3 GB
Segment count: 1
Segment map: 8
File name: Little_Women_t94.mkv

Episode 2
Source file name: 00784.mpls
Duration: 1:00:23
Chapters count: 7
Size: 13.1 GB
Segment count: 1
Segment map: 12
File name: Little_Women_t206.mkv

Episode 3
Source file name: 00566.mpls
Duration: 1:02:02
Chapters count: 6
Size: 9.9 GB
Segment count: 21
Segment map: 506,519,502,509,500,503,507,514,513,510,516,511,517,504,512,520,518,505,515,508,501
File name: Little_Women_t140.mkv

One final note: the titles were not in numerical order, so hunting around for them was a pain. I dumped the output to a file using makemkvcon, then searched for the mpls number to get the title number. My title numbers are listed above but yours will probably be slightly different.

that's how PBS does all their releases, they scramble one episode.
