Working playlists for "Woodfall – A Revolution in British Cinema"

Post by Hofmeister » Tue Mar 26, 2019 8:59 am

The bfi box set "Woodfall – A Revolution in British Cinema" contains 8 films on 9 discs (with two cuts of TOM JONES). Two of the discs are straightforward (with a single playlist for the main feature), the others yield enormous numbers of fake titles. Unlike other users, I have never seen MakeMKV suggest a main feature on my setup (MakeMKV v1.14.2, macOS 10.14.3), and identify the playlists in question on my own.

These are the correct playlists for the films in the set, I hope they're of use for someone:

Delayed response, but... Thanks for this—these were the first discs where I’ve encountered the issue, so your post saved me a lot of time.

Out of curiosity, how did you determine the correct playlists? I’ve found two more boxsets in my collection—the BFI Alan Clarke set and one of Indicator’s Hammer Films sets—with the same playlist issue, and I don’t see any indications as to which is the correct one. I also haven’t found any more info by googling their titles, probably because they’re relatively niche releases.

Sorry to reply so late, I should visit the forum more often.

I determined the playlists manually by looking at the segments' starts and endings. This will tell you the one valid sequence to look for. Then I admit I waded through the segment maps on offer (you get into the habit quickly and get used to skimming the list for just likely candidates) until I saw the good map and selected that.

The process can be tedious (or meditative :wink: ) . I am sure there are discs out there from other labels (with endless misleading maps) where this is not a viable way to go. With bfi releases it's not too bad.

If you know of a less time-consuming mode that works, I'm listening!
