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...

Re: Latest release broke havecore rule

Okay, I think I figured this out. Profiles are still supported, it's just the syntax has changed slightly so that referbacks such as "$app_DefaultSelectionString" no longer work. I copied the selection rules from DefaultSelectionString into the track settings, like this <trackSettings input="default...

Re: Latest release broke havecore rule

Where would I find that information. There's nothing in the version change history that mentions removing support for profiles and the announcements forum has little of anything in it. Are you saying the selection rules are now set in the GUI and the batch program, makemkvcon, pulls them from somewh...

Latest release broke havecore rule

I just updated to the 1.14.2 release from 1.12.2 and the havecore exclusion is no longer working with the command line app - makemkvcon. I'm now seeing 2 audio tracks for each language where before I was seeing just one. I reran an extract of an anime disc that worked a couple of weeks ago and inste...

Timestamps on Announcement postings

Why do the announcement postings show up with ancient dates on them? For example, the "MakeMKV beta 1.10.5 released" post shows a date of "Thu Mar 04, 2010 7:56 am". Is it because a posting is being updated in place instead of a new post added? This makes it harder to keep track of when a release ca...

Re: Playlist that is not equal is being dropped

I submitted a problem report when I first had the problem on the Lucky Star discs. I included the PLAYLIST and CLIPINF files, the makemkv log output and whatever else was requested. Is there anything else I need to do? Does he normally look at problems within a certain period of time and would I exp...
