Re: Ubuntu makemkv...no 'ccextractor'?! No way to uncheck.

On my Ubuntu install, ccextractor is blank. I'd suggest selecting Expert Mode on the General tab, then go to the Advanced tab and erase whatever is in the ccextractor executable location.

Re: Limit error retries

It looks to be set to 5 by default. Is that "per bad sector"? If there's a problem where the computer and drive are not talking correctly, wouldn't that mean makemkv just moves from sector to sector and retries all of them 5 times? Every once in a while I get errors like this: MSG:2003,0,3,"Error 'S...

Limit error retries

Is there any setting to limit the number/time makemkv will retry when getting a drive error? I've run into a couple of those scsi errors recently and it seems like makemkv just keeps trying over and over again. That can't be good for the drive.

Re: Does Integration Circumvent Region-locking, or Just Encryption?

Yeah, VLC still gripes if the region code doesn't match, but with Makemkv as the AACS driver you can get around it without changing the code in your drive. In VLC go to tools->preferences and select show settings all at the bottom. On the scrollable list of options on the left select Input Codecs->A...

Re: I wrote a bash script for automated, parallelized ripping

My first question would be, why is your wrapper script copying the Makemkv license into the config file? You should only have to do that once. Second question, where did you come up with the 1GB of storage for a blu ray and 500MB for a DVD? Makemkv just copies the data as is and, as far as I could s...

Re: Question to all: MakeMKV without GUI, console only

I use makemkvcon in a set of scripts that allow me to specify which titles to extract, and for each of those which audio tracks and which subtitle tracks. My scripts extract the title and then pass it to either handbrakecli or ffmpeg to transcode to x264 or x265. I write a control file for each disk...

Re: Playlist that is not equal is being dropped

My personal workaround was that I discovered the m2ts files that were lost when the supposedly duplicate playlist was dropped were also in separate titles all by themselves. I modified my script that sits on top of makemkvcon to set the minimum title length to 0, extract those separate titles and th...

Re: Direct blu ray playback minimum title length

Well, it's not quite set at 120 seconds. For the disc I'm currently working on, vlc lists titles that are 1:32 and 1:37 (92 and 97 seconds), but not ones that are 1:06 (66 seconds) and shorter. Is this a vlc "feature" or is this something MakeMKV is doing?

Direct blu ray playback minimum title length

How do I set the minimum title length for direct blu ray playback? When I open a disk with vlc, it seems to be defaulting to 120 seconds even though I have the MakeMKV gui set to a minimum title length of 0 seconds. Is there another copy of the settings somewhere?

Re: Deselect closed captions when using makemkvcon

To end this conversation I'm having with myself, I got it working. Apparently the MakeMKV text box that prompts you for ccextractor location actually wants the ccextractor executable. I'll nitpick a little here because to me "location" means where something is, as in what directory. Even the error m...

Re: Deselect closed captions when using makemkvcon

Okay, this is turning into a PITA. I found the deb file for ccextractor in the Ubuntu 18.10 repository, downloaded it and installed it on 18.04. The install didn't give any errors and when I run ccextractor from the command line with no parameters it gives a nice long list of options. It installed i...

Re: Deselect closed captions when using makemkvcon

The track selection rules supposedly support the following N - matches if Nth (or bigger) track of the same type and language But I couldn't find ANY examples of how to use that option. Since the closed captions were the 3rd subtitle, I figured if I could tell makemkvcon to only pull the first 2 sub...

Deselect closed captions when using makemkvcon

I've been merrily extracting dozens of DVDs using makemkvcon version 1.14.5 and then, boom, I ran into a disc that apparently has closed captioning subtitles. Makemkvcon gave me an error that it couldn't find ccextractor and aborted. I want to extract the regular subtitles, but not the closed captio...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

Correct. The BP50NB40 firmware (and MK firmware) are not UHD friendly. Yes, please try to flash the hybrid firmware to the drive. If it doesn't work directly from BP50NB40_1.02_MK, you should downgrade to BP50NB40_1.01_MK first. Once the HBD firmware has been flashed, your drive will be seen as a B...

Re: NEW OPTION: 'UHD Friendly' Firmware Downgrade / Cross-Flash Using Official (Modified) ASUS Flasher for ASUS & LG Dri

EDIT (03.09.2019): I have created 2 modified (hybrid = HBD) firmwares solely for the BP50NB40. Firmware BP60NB10_1.00_MK_HBD will allow you to flash your BP50NB40 to BP60NB10. Firmware BP50NB40-NB50_1.01_MK_HBD will allow you to go back to BP50NB40_1.01_MK if you ever require it. The firmware zip i...
