Re: "automatic sdf downloading is disabled or failed" while decrypting

What is the web server hostname? I have pi-hole and pfBlockerNG running to filter DNS requests. Is there any way to white-list entire MakeMKV? I short, it can use any DNS address and it can change at any time. Is it a serious problem that I should look at fixing? I don't know what SDF is so some co...

Re: What is the correct play list [insert title here]?

If MakeMKV can sniff out the main feature, it will move its play list to the top, with a comment of "(FPL_MainFeature) next to it in the selection window (left part of screen). This wasn't the case for me for the title "Valerian". It ( MakeMkv 1.12.3 for Mac ) put the FPL_MainFeature as the 4th tit...

Bad Santa 2 - fpl_mainfeature_r vs fpl_mainfeature_ur?

Makemkv found 2 track on the blue-ray that appear to be the main title. fpl_mainfeature_r - 26GB fpl_mainfeature_ur - 29.1GB I didn't know the difference between the 2 so went with the larger file size. That seems to be the safe bet. However, this picques my interest. What is the difference between ...

How can you tell aspect ratio of inserted Blu-Ray DVD?

Usually the top / labelled side of the BD has video with the 16:9 aspect ratio, but I ran into one that had 4:3 on the "top" side and 16:9 on the "bottom". I look all over the case, the disc, and the MKV details screen, but I did't see the aspect ratio anywhere. Is there a way to tell what aspect ra...
