Re: super slow rip

I was getting the extremely slow rips, and found that if I unselected the CC track that the rips returned to normal speed.

Re: File output capped at 5580.5 MB

Let me guess, the drive you are writing to is formatted FAT? You need to reformat it to NTFS or exFAT (or if using linux EXT4).

A FAT filesystem limits filesize to 4GB.

Re: Venom playlist

I've seen this error before, it's usually Java crashing. I've worked around it (on Linux Mint) by temporarily renaming the java executable. Try

Code: Select all

sudo mv /usr/bin/java /usr/bin/java.save
and then rip. Once done don't forget to

Code: Select all

sudo mv /usr/bin/java.save /usr/bin/java

Re: The House with a clock in its walls - dump

I was able to rip the retail version (purchased at Walmart) with no issues.

Re: Bluray - hearing impairment commentary frustrations

Thanks - helpful. I wasnt intending to Handbrake transcode to MP4 as happy with the quality of MKV - or do you keep your files in MKV and just use Handbrake for the edit you mention? Cheers Instead of using Handbrake you can use MKVToolNix to remove un-wanted audio tracks and subs. Only takes a few...

Re: UHD standard mainstream?

And don't forget the camp who contend that all physical (optical) media is headed 'the way of the dodo', in favor of streamed media. People have many opinions... :) And sadly the powers that make these kinds of decisions don't live somewhere like I do where streaming over the internet is impossible...

Re: Unable to execute external program 'ccextractor' on V1.14.1

My bad, I didn't search first...

But a comment, either there needs to be info about how to install ccextractor on linux, or the option should be disabled by default (or not cause a rip failure) if ccextractor is not installed.

Re: UHD rips error out part-way through

I find it very hard to believe that all of these discs have a defect or are dirty at the same point in the disc. Why is it hard to believe that at the layer switch the read starts failing? I've gotten into the habit to clean every new disc before attempting to rip. I've only run into one disc that ...

Re: "Subtitles"

This is what is working for me. I select all of the English (language of your choice of course!) Forced Tracks. You then need to actually set the track to forced in the MKV: forced-settings.jpg MakeMKV always seems to show the forced subs, even if there are none on that track, don't worry it's OK as...

I thought that bug had been fixed? I've ripped over 30 UHDs and this is the first time it's happened.

Re: jigsaw 4k disc

I had problems with the US version of Jigsaw. The disc would load and show the content fine, and while on the content selection screen, suddenly something would start accessing the disc. The drive would spin up to full speed for a few seconds and then I'd get 'no disc inserted'. I could not get the ...

Re: Source Code 'fake playlist'

Thanks for spending so much time searching!!! I was going crazy; the search engine isn't really that good, is it.

Things like + don't seem to work properly, searching +Wonder +2017 returned all kinds of results that didn't have 2017 in it. Ran into the same thing with Source Code....

Source Code 'fake playlist'

This is my bad day for ripping blurays....

Second disc today with a fake playlist, Source Code (2011). Anyone know the correct title?
