Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

I try not to say anything on a forum that might offend someone, but I can't bite my tongue on this one. Building makemkv for Linux is trivial. If you're not up to the task, you probably should be running Windows or MacOS. I was almost going to say that in my response... The first build can be a lit...

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

It takes about 2-4 hours work. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. DO IT and stop wasting our time! Really, 2-4 hours of work??? Let's look at the real numbers. Done from my Linux Mint laptop (I didn't include download time, as you'd have to download regardless of how it's distributed): brian@auton ~/Downloads/makem...

Re: Can't rip to another drive/mount point

Came across this thread while searching for a solution to the same problem yesterday. I figured out a suitable workaround in case anyone is still dealing with this: I can confirm this is not a permissions issue, it seems that MakeMKV is only "aware" of certain root directories no matter who owns it...

nk, this is for the *GUI*. I am a tech geek and use the *command line version* (makemkvcon) in script
Did you add the key to your .MakeMKV/settings.conf file? That's all that should be needed.

Hi, I'm trying to install on Ubuntu
It would help to know what version of Ubuntu you are running, and what desktop environment that you are using.

Re: Problem while working with BDMV

Did you try as I suggested to the OP and connect a monitor or use X Forwarding?

I've never used makemkvcon, but out of curiosity I gave it a try on my Linux Mint server and it works fine with 1.15.1.

Re: Windows doesn’t display thumbnail after DVD Rip

Plex has no problems with mkv support that I've ever heard of.
But it starting to seem like apps that will play these MKV files are few.
mkv is well supported. Complain to Micro$oft about their refusal to recognize it.

Re: Dolby Atmos player for Blu-ray rips

You could use a Pi with OSMC. Or if you want 4K playback capabilities a Vero 4K+ is a great little media center.

Re: Does it convert - transform truehd into ac3??

Wow, you are a rude one.

I guess you don't understand what MakeMKV is for. It's for Ripping DVD/BD's, not for transcoding MKVs.

Also, I'd suggest that you read your post. I quote you here:
Can this program convert truehd mkv or blueray
That reads to me as ripping a bluray.

Re: Does it convert - transform truehd into ac3??

A 1 minute file should not take long at all to rip. If it's taking that long for you then either you have a dirty/damaged disc, or your drive is defective. The audio format makes no difference as it's just copying the tracks without change.

Re: makemkv crashes upon request to cancel

I've seen this also on Linux Mint 19.3. It's never really bothered me since I rarely cancel a rip so I haven't reported it. If wanted I'll reproduce the problem with logging turned on.

Re: Can't start the program, always prompted for key

Sounds like your settings file may have been corrupted.

What does ~/.MakeMKV/settings.conf look like? Or, just rename it, start MakeMKV and add your key again and a new file will be created.

Re: Libredrive version v6

I tested a few BD and DVDs and Wow, what a difference. Then for fun I tried a few of my UHDs that would not rip due to disc errors (even after a good cleaning). 2 of the 4 that I tried now rip. One of the discs was Call of the Wild, so I only tried it a week ago. Before updating to LD 6 it would not...
