Re: Who does the translations?

Who translates this program to other languages? I can't seem to find anywhere to sign up to help with translations, and there is a particular word in the Danish translation that really bothers me (in the preferences, "Video" is translated to "vedeo" - not only is it all lowercase, it is not even a ...

Re: Quality of internal AC3 encoding

It is likely impossible to do that compression in an unnoticeable way. I'm not aware of any quality problems with audio encoding in FFmpeg. Yes, exactly. It's just a really lossy format. But, AC-3 is widely supported and highly portable. MakeMKV can also do AAC encoding - all profiles, using fdk_aa...

Re: Quality of internal AC3 encoding

Yes, maybe it uses ffmpeg's libraries for AC3 encoding as well. I'm just curious if the AC3 encoding quality could be improved by some additional flag or switch (at the cost of some encoding time). It does use ffmpeg. You can specify any ffmpeg encoder options in conversion profile (look for a flac...

As for the hardware, here is the recipe (assuming you've flashed a LibreDrive firmware) That's just it, is it possible to flash my drive (HL-DT-ST BD-RE WP50NB40) and what does flashing the drive do exactly? Yes, your drive can be flashed. You have to read this - https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewt...

Re: Mac user. I wish to have my "BD-RE WP50NB40" region free. Can anyone help?

Thanks for your help. Can I ask you a question: why does MakeMKV.app say "DVD all regions: Possible (with patched firmware)" for my drive? Can't I do this? You have to understand the concept of RPC-II, and how region coding is enforced. In short, it is enforced by both hardware (your drive) and sof...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Then you have somehow tell MakeMKV to keep re-encoded base, but extract DV EL+RPU from another track. This is easy to do technically, the question is about UI. The easiest way probably would be the track ordering as well: if the second track contains Base+EL+RPU, then discard base, extract EL+RPU a...

Re: Only 7.1 and 5.1 audio (No stereo)

You can do this with MakeMKV - it has audio down-mix feature. Enable expert mode, and select AAC-stereo profile . For each audio track you will have an option to save the original AND/OR stereo copy. And you can do this for already existing MKV file, just open the MKV file in MakeMKV.

Re: MakeMKV privacy question

Hi all, new here. Can you say me if MakeMKV includes any personal info when it creates the MKV file? No. Each MKV file has a unique random ID (16 bytes in header) and file creation date. These are only two fields in MKV header that should be different when you create an MKV file from the same sourc...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Open an MKV file that contains two(2) video tracks. The first track is the (re-encoded) DV base layer. The second track is the DV enhanced layer. Then merge the two tracks into a single track that is DV single layer compliant. This is already done in upcoming 1.15.4 , but it was done mostly to plea...

Re: Official Dolby Vision MKV spec support

Is it possible to re-encode MKV with Dolby Vision to get a smaller file and still get Dolby Atmos + Dolby Vision? Short Answer: Not with MakeMKV Long Answer: Other tools allow you to re-encode the base layer and then merge that resulting file with the extended layer (the Dolby Vision layer). There'...

Does anyone know what the encoding for 1x speed is? I know 0=8 means limiting the drive to 2x across all media types but is 1x 0=4?
There is none. MTK1959 hardware can only go at even speeds - minimum is 2x, next is 4x and so on. It just physically can't spin at 1x
