makemkv-oss should install the public headers

If makemkv oss is really an oss library that is meant for others to be able to use, it should install the headers so that it can e used as a C library and possibly also include a pkg-config setup, to make it easy to integrate.

thoughts?

Re: how do we retreave the AAC keys

so how does makemkv decrypt a protected backup (regular bluray, not UHD) without the physical disc being inside the drive? I should note, that when I asked this ages ago https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=19798&p=75581#p75581 mike didn't say my guess was wrong and that it was open sou...

Re: how do we retreave the AAC keys

so in other words, there's enough information in the file to calculate the vuk?

is that effectively different that what I said? if all the information needed to calculate the vuk is in the file, I'd argue tht the the vuk is effectively in the file.

Re: how do we retreave the AAC keys

considering you can decrypt a protected bluray backup without the original disc, how does it do that, if it doesn't calculate the vuk in advance?

Re: how do we retreave the AAC keys

no I'm asking how to use the program to extract them and put them in a separate file Nope. Can't be done. MakeMKV does the actual AACS key decryption process behind the scenes just like a standard blu-ray player would. that's not true. If you make a protected backup, I'm pretty sure it stores the V...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

there's been a lot of discussion that dolby vision causes problems for bluray authoring (bitrate limitations that vary based on potions of the disc when one gets into double and triple layers) and there's been much more uptake for it on streaming where it's easier to implement as constant bitrate li...

Re: Does makemkv fully remove region codeing from disc backups?

no, makemkv does not remove any region coding. all a disc backup is an aacs and bd+ (if needed) decrypted version of the contents on the disc. no modifications are made to remove region coding or remove any other form of protections. Many modern discs will play as is (assuming region of player is co...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

ive been thinking this over and it makes sense... Your CX is internally processing HDR via its app correctly, correct colours, correct tone map and as such it looks good. Dolby Vision from the shield is being processed by the shield (player led LLDV) and as such looks a little darker, you also have...

Re: Problem backing up certain 20th Century Fox Blu-ray discs

red screen is not a bug. It' working as the code says it should. MakeMKV doesn't modify the code, AnyDVD does. AnyDVD gives perfect rips for the blurays it supports (which is by far most in existence). Plenty of people are using hacked / cracked / warezed versions of anydvd and hence that's why it d...

Re: Ken Burns: The Vietnam War (2017)

many PBS discs have a form of screen pass. where many times only one episode per disc are obfuscated. DVDFab solves (or at least past tense) this ugly by hacking up the java code. AnyDVD solves this elegatly with the realization that the java code doesn't matter, they aren't really a BDJ disc, all t...

Re: Problem backing up certain 20th Century Fox Blu-ray discs

MakeMKV doesn't fix this problem. This is BD+ combined with java code on the bluray ensuring that BD+ is active. Its out of scope for MakeMKV to deal with it. while conceptually it could rewrite the java code, as I said, I believe its out of scope. If you want to make a full ISO rip with menus you n...

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.1

ah, ok. thanks, learned something. also, doesn't work with remote media (nas), must be locally attached (which makes sense I guess). and it behaves the same as plex. works fine for DV MP4s (from web) but doesn't quite work for DV MKVs on my Sony TV (triggers DV, but only displays in black and white,...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

given an makemkv created dv mkv, can one turn it into a valid dv mp4? or is that not possible?
