Getting Faster Blu Ray RIPS

I'm looking for a way to accelerate RIP times. It seems like some discs take twice as long as others. And of course if there are 100 obfuscated main titles you might choose to backup the disc as an interim step. I use a recent iMac and the RIP speed to a network volume (over wifi) seems no slower th...

The Counselor (2013), Which Playlist?

It looks like there are just two possibilities for this disc that contains just the Theatrical release.

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Original RAW MKV vs. Handbrake Recompression?

How many of you are keeping all of your Blu Ray rips in their original form (full quality, original compression) and not recompressing with Handbrake? Do you see or hear a real quality difference via Plex? In recent history, I've been ripping my collection without recompression, preserving all possi...

Re: Correct MKV segment map for SPY

Actually, are they not both valid? I think there is a theatrical release and the Extended version... Yes?

Also, did you notice that the BD menu did not show ANY extras but they were on the disc, did I miss something? Have you seen it before like this?

Re: Which Mac Blu-ray Player Software?

Don't you have a software player so that you can review the disc without the disc loaded?

BTW: my retail copy of Let's Be Cops does not show extras via hardware BD player.... but MakeMKV did reveal Special Features. Have you seen that before?

Thanks

Which Mac Blu-ray Player Software?

I have the need to view my Blu-ray Disc backups such that I can see the menus as it would normally play in a regular BD player. Can you recommend a software player that will allow me to view my BD backups on my Mac? I was demoing one application (Blu-ray Player Pro) which looked promising at first b...

Fastest DVD Backup (Mac)?

Long ago I used MacTheRipper for DVD backups (decrypting the DVD). Sometimes I still want to backup the DVD, which I believe would be the fastest way to process (get it on the hard drive) the DVD disc. So, since MakeMKV does not do backups of DVDs what options do I have as a Mac user for software to...

Re: Is the extraction time in the log?

Thanks for the reply but I would not expect that to be accurate.
