I'm using MakeMKV on a Ubuntu 16.04 VM on my Qnap NAS.

In the past I always copied my edited default.mmcp.xml file to "/usr/share/MakeMKV/" and it worked just fine.

However, after installing version v1.12.0 I'm getting an error that there are multiple default profiles upon start of MakeMKV. When I delete my default profile in "/usr/share/MakeMKV/" I dont get the message again. So it seems that makemkv changed the location for the profile with the latest version.
I already searched for the default profile on my VM but I couldn't find where it is stored.

Can anybody tell me the new location of the profiles?

Your MakeMKV data directory is where you should put any files you have CHANGED. The original files can remain in the program directory.

You should NOT name a modified profile "default", because it will cause this error.

Thanks :)
Not the answer I was hoping for as it worked flawlessly before ;)

I tried to rename the file itself and also the third line:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<profile>
    <!-- profile name - Myprofile -->
    <name lang="mogz">:5086</name>


But I'm getting the same error. So I ended up just adding my profile manually via:

"-sel:all,+sel:(eng|nolang),-sel:core,-sel:havelossless,+sel:mvcvideo,-sel:subtitle*(all),+sel:(forced*(eng)),-sel:special"

Which might be the easiest way of them all, but somehow I wanted to complicate things^^

Your profile isn't named "MyProfile" in your example, it's named ":5086", which may be invalid. What you want is:

Code:
    <name lang="eng">MyProfile</name>


The important part is that the name in the <name> tag is unique among the profile files in the MakeMKV program and data directories. MakeMKV will search both during start-up.

Profiles that are invalid will generate error messages, and not be allowed in the pull-down. Duplicates lose out to originals, because the program directory is searched first.

Thansk, that make sense then although I find it wird that the name is 5086 when its displayed within Makemkv as "default".

The leading colon, I believe, makes the name invalid, so it is likely that "default" is substituted.

But that's just a guess on my part, based on a lot of XML work. Mike would have the definitive answer.
