Re: Central subtitle rip/don't rip info???

There is no automatic way to know what kind of "text" is in the subtitle tracks. Also the selection depends on the used player (Hard or Soft), some respects the mkv header flags (default and/or forced), others play always the first subttle track. The best way is to list the mkv file content with "Me...

Re: best way to get small high quality rips?

My new issue that drove me nuts is a lot of my DVD rips were 6:9 in Make MKV, but changed to 2.35.1 once converted in vidcoder and handbrake. VideoCoder does not change an can not the Aspect Ratio. What happens if you view the file with VLC? Did you still see the black filling bars on top and butto...

Re: NAS Drive Project and large backup

The DUNE Media Players can works with NFS or SMB shares. I use SMB (use Synology and Dune) because it works better with timesouts (Box is offline). To get SMB running you must add a userid on the NAS and give them at least READ access to the SHARE. In the Dune specify the share with HOSTNAME or IP a...

The relative file naming depends on the min title length settings.

Re: Fringe: Season 1

If the episodes are each in one m2ts file (maybe it works also with the append option if some m2ts files are one episode), you can load the m2ts stream element file in MKVToolNIX to create an mkv file from it.

Re: How to disable automatic subtitles

but how do you set the rip so that it keeps the subtitles but doesn't automatically turn them on? All what you can do is to set the default and forced flag to "False or No". You can do this with "MKVTooolNIX GUI", select the Header Editor part, select the file, goto the subtitle section and switch ...

Re: Extract/backup specific M2TS file

Sometimes the wanted m2ts segment part is listed in the title selection list, but sometimes not. The first titles part with chapters is related to mpls (playlist) files, the part without chapters are the m2ts files (sorted by the number). It depends also on the minimum m2ts time (in the settings) if...

Re: Changes Aspect Ratio

Set width to 16, height to 9, unit to 3 (aspect ratio), and remuxed. Plex still plays 4:3. No Idea what you did (changed this n the header edtor?) and then remux? The Header editor data can only be saved but not remuxed. But it should work if you load the file in the "MKVToolNIX GUI" muxxer window,...

Re: Subtitle default mkv flag handling

So maybe it's best to have them all default to off as you suggest (or set the flags manually in the GUI so you can skip MKVToolnixs header editor) and implement a routine that can identify forced subs by size (like BD2AVCHD did). Wrote some logic to identify most (but not all) forced subtitle track...

Re: Subtitle default mkv flag handling

For me it makes no sense to set a subtitle track as "default", because this can be correct nor not. If a subtitle track is set to default, the player should show the subtitles, but it makes in most cases no sense. VLC is also a bad example, because if a subtitle language is set in the settings, it a...
