Re: Incredibles 2

In this instance, I had no issues ripping Incredibles 2...once I figured out which of the 3 titles MakeMKV listed was the correct one. How did you figure this out? Each title is showing a slightly different segment map but I have no idea what the actual difference would be between the three version...

Re: Playing back UHD rips on Windows 10

Since posting, other research I've done suggests that smooth UHD playback pretty much requires hardware support for HEVC (the video compression used by UHD). I only have a partial understanding of when Intel have started adding this and, in some situations, it appears to be a partial implementation ...

Playing back UHD rips on Windows 10

I've got a 2015 NUC which I think is too old, hardware-wise, to properly play back UHD rips when connected to otherwise appropriate display hardware (i.e. new Denon AV amp and new Samsung UHD TV). The reason I say this is because everything I've read about correct HDR playback suggests that HDMI 2.0...

Re: Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

Curiously, in my default.mmcp.xml file, I also have: ignoreForcedSubtitlesFlag="true" I'm not at all sure what this is supposed to mean! Setting that to "false" and re-doing the conversion results in my second request being fulfilled, namely that the forced subtitles track created by MakeMKV has th...

Re: Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

Do you mean, the forced track is muxed twice into the MKV? I think I have seen this before. Yes, that's what I mean. The MIGP Blu-ray has three subtitle tracks. The MKV created by MakeMKV has four subtitle tracks. #3 & #4 are identical. The corresponding track in the MKV files does not have the "fo...

Re: Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

I've just done some testing with another Blu-ray - Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. This disc has three English subtitle tracks, the third of which is the forced subtitles track. Unlike The Avengers, the forced subtitles track on MIGP does have the forced attribute on each subtitle. There are two...

Re: Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

I am now as certain as I can be that the 3rd subtitle track on the Avengers Blu-ray, despite definitely containing the "forced" subtitles, doesn't have the forced flag set on any of the subtitles. This would explain why MakeMKV isn't doing anything special with that track and why Kodi doesn't displa...

Re: Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

OK ... I'm sharing my findings as I do the research into the subtitles on The Avengers. One of the reasons for picking this Blu-Ray is because there are a number of forum posts on the Kodi forums as well about it so I want to really get to the bottom of this ... According to tsMuxeR, for 00800.m2ts ...

Re: Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

I've been doing some more testing using my Avengers Blu-Ray as I know where the forced subtitles exist in that film. If I use PowerDVD, the forced subtitles are displayed correctly without me needing to do anything. I'm going to take that to mean that there is an algorithm that can be followed in or...

Forced subtitles - flag not being set in MKV file?

I've been doing a lot of forum reading to try and understand why the movies I've been ripping from Blu-Ray aren't showing the forced subtitles in Kodi. There have been some really helpful posts and I now appreciate the fact that the m2ts file can contain a subtitle track with both forced and unforce...

Re: New twist in anti-copy technology

A tip I was given was to use Process Monitor (ProcMon - https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/lib ... 96645.aspx) while playing the Blu-Ray in a software Blu-Ray player. You then watch ProcMon to identify the name of the mpls file that the software player opens when you play a specific episode. You ca...

For my education, would you mind explaining why?

Many thanks.

Re: Hancock BR - 4 videos but which one to pick?

Many thanks, Ripman. Out of interest, was there a method you used to know which one was which? Since posting yesterday, I've now found more of my Blu-Rays (which I'm freshly converting to MKV) have multiple playlists, e.g. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows (both parts) plus other BRs. If there is...

Hancock BR - 4 videos but which one to pick?

I'm guessing that the disc contains different versions, e.g. uncut, but I just want to keep the one that would play if I wanted to watch the main version off the Blu-Ray menu. They are actually different versions because the sizes are slightly different. How can I find out which one that is, please?...
