MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
I also have this issue. Also using an LG external, but on the mac. Maybe this is related to drive speed? I know the macs aren't exactly known for drive speed so maybe this is it...
Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
Interesting....thanks for posting !
You could try the following:
Use a different software for ripping the BDs on your mac.
If you can confirm similar behaviour (MakeMKV "dies" but BluRay ripper works) then we have at least some sort of confirmation that not neccessarily the BD or BDdrive are corrupt.
I still doubt that any of the BDs or my drive are corrupt in any way.

You don't need to use any special software to verify  bluray discs are always readable. Just try copying all files from the disc in finder. If it fails  you have a hardware problem.
Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
Mike, I do not feel like argueing with you....you are the expert in this field.
I did just share my observations as Enduser.
I have one BD behaving strange with MakeMKV which really had issues (Predator Hunter Edition). When ripping this huge set of BDs for a friend I experienced such issues several times (MakeMKV "died" while Bluray Ripper from DVDFab could rip) that I can hardly believe all those BDs had any sort of defect. I also doubt that my BD drive has a defect because it still works fine with the majority of BDs / DVDs I am ripping.
Even if people tell me to clean the BDs, tell me that either the BDs or my BD drive are corrupt, I find this hard to believe.
Even more when some kind of pattern shows up (Software A rips while software B dies). May be DVDFabs Stuff uses different approaches to read / access the BDs ? I dunno....
I would like to see Vilago's results.
@Vilago: OK, do a double crosscheck.
Try to copy the encrypted files from the specific BD to your HDD and try as well to rip it with BDCopier for the Mac from DVDFab.

Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
atomic7431,
it would be interesting what happens when you try to copy the encrypted files from the BD over to your PC or may be simply generate an ISO from the BD ?

Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
ok quick and odd reply, i noticed my mkvs were changed to autoplay back using acestream otherwise known as torrentstream, i changed this back to vlc player and the speed increased to a normal 4.4x, so i then changed it back to ace stream and voila 0.0x changed back to vlc and the speed increased again! must be torrent stream trying to access the file for streaming even though i havent told it too and so causing slow down in ripping speeds. hope this helps some
Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
So I other words you do not have the issues I described about ripping BD to MKV without any additional programm accessing the drive ?

Re: MakeMKV slows down during ripping till it "dies" ?
it wasnt accessing the drive but the file being created. ie the default program used to play back that file type had been altered so i changed it back and all was then well.
The bluray now finished ripping without fault after changing the default file playback (right click on the file, open with  chose default program  picked vlc again)
