Re: Time to rip 4K

Sometimes I think 4K discs are just upscaled HD masters at massive filesize absolutely on purpose to discourage ripping and no other reason. 90GB per movie is just way too much storage space on hard drives. 20-30GB per Bluray is bad enough. I'm not even going to bother trying to put my 4K discs on s...

Re: Price of MakeMKV license

$50 is 45.59 Euro

So why are we being charged 61.50 Euro when trying to buy it in EU? And don't say taxes... do the americans not have to pay taxes too on the $50?

Re: Getting Faster Blu Ray RIPS

I got some special firmware for my Sony drive donkeys years ago - it isn't nerfed when it detects a rip like reading pattern like the default commercial one is (on purpose)

Re: Why Do I Need a Beta Key to Rip DVDs?

Your DVDs/BDs will not explode or run away in the small timeframe you have to wait for the key to be updated by Mike. Speaking as someone who's found during this backup process that a large number of my discs have rotted and are unreadable...not necessarily true. I had an entire series of a show I ...

Re: 3D MVC Option

I've only had success using Intel 3D stereo and nvidia with Stereoscopic Player. Never tried AMD but make sure the drivers are the most recent as always. Well from what I read NVidia appears to have some sort of 3D setup and test pages in its drivers config software, whereas there is NO mention of ...

Re: 3D MVC Option

I have a HTPC with many bluray MKVs and also 3D MVC MKVs from my own Blurays and I just bought a licence for that Stereoscopic Player which i thought would allow me to play these 3D MVC MKVs to my Sony HW-40ES 3D projector but it doesn't appear to work at all. The HTPC has an AMD 7000 series card sp...

Re: American Hustle BD - Which Playlist

It is really pointless for anyone to tell you eg. it's playlist 808 or 835, because this disc appears to have been made with many different playlists so what works for someone else will most likely not be right for your disc. Usually if the protection is what's called Java BD then some programs will...

American Hustle BD - Which Playlist

I am having trouble with this one. It contains many, many playlists - the usual protection (same title length, correct chapters count etc.) but.... unlike Hunger Games which uses Java BD protection on its many playlists and so AnyDVD can tell which is a good playlist, this title doesn't appear to be...

Re: Life of Pi fails to copy

The drive can't read the disc. This is not a copy protection issue. Either your drive is failing or your disc is bad. Take the easy option first and swap the disc for a new one. Sorry you didn't read what I said carefully. I said I already got a replacement disc - ie. two original Blurays of the fi...

Life of Pi fails to copy

I have tried two different copies of film discs now to be sure it wasn't a single disc read error. Both completely separate discs give the same error and fail to copy the main movie. Also tried leaving out the DTS-HD track which sometimes works but made no difference. There is nothing wrong with my ...

Re: Ice Age 4 3D strange 3d format

Thanks for sending the requested files. This disc is indeed very special, it's the first and only 3D multi-angle disc we've seen. The next version of MakeMKV will be able to handle multi-angle 3D video in general and this disc in particular. That's great news! I wonder did they master it in this fo...
