Re: Forced Subtitle Only Selection Rule

It is fine to leave both checked - I do it all the time. My selection rule is "all tracks", no language filter (sometimes tracks are mislabeled). The worst thing that will happen is seeing messages about the empty subtitle track being removed. And, if you happen to find a movie that uses forced flag...

Re: Forced Subtitle Only Selection Rule

If you select both, you will almost certainly end up with ONE track, as the "forced only" track will be deleted as empty. This is because use of forced subtitle flags are rare. I know of one movie (Avatar) that does it; I've heard of a couple of others. The usual scheme is that there are two tracks ...

Re: Two macs, and two different results.

"Backup" and "make MKV files" are two separate functions. Which are you trying to accomplish? The big one that looks like a disk drive and "spins" when a disk is loading, will open the disk and give you a list of titles to select for conversion to MKV files. The Backup button will copy the directory...

Re: file format

That depends on what buttons you click on.

The Backup button will copy the directory structure of the disk to a directory on your drive...

Re: Robot Carnival won't rip with Audio

MakeMKV has no specific problem with LPCM audio; I rip disks with both 16- and and 24-bit LCPM regularly (yes, usually anime).

Are you attempting to convert the LPCM to something else during the rip?

Re: Trying to enable Direct DVD playback and get this error

So, did you verify that you didn't already have a file or link /usr/lib/libmmbd.so.0 ?

Re: Shine A Light

On multiple attempts, does it always fail at the same offset, or "in the area"? When doing a backup, the drive usually isn't sent off to random places, so seeks should go to legal parts of the disk. Breaking at the same offset each time could point to a defect in the disk. Things like this can happe...

Re: Audio issues

Having ripped these disks, with audio, some questions: How do you know there is no audio? Some players cannot handle more modern audio codecs like DTS-HD MA without help, so they "have no audio", even though it is in the file. Using a player like VLC can allow you to confirm this. Sometimes people s...

Re: MakeMKV License Help

The email from avangate.com should not be encrypted... I've never heard of that before.

If you cannot find the avangate email, contact mike at support@makemkv.com with your information and he can get your key for you.

Re: Automatically deselect certain titles based on title comment?

"Simple feature" as decided by whom? Regular expressions are not particularly simple, as evidenced by how hard the programmers who work for me try to avoid them, and how often I have to fix them for them. Just the macro substitution that Mike put in MakeMKV file naming requires extensive explanation...

Re: Mystery Road - failed to open disc

Lots of ideas, but which ones apply to your situation would be dependent on why it failed to open the disk.

See the FAQ link in my signature and give us some more information to work with.

Re: March of the Penguins DVD

First step is cleaning the disk; hardware time-outs on modern drives often happens because the drive is trying REALLY HARD to read a sector, and the operating system thinks it has gone off-line. Too many, and the operating system can decide there is no disk present.

Re: MKV can't open good disk copy. Do devlopers want a copy?

If the encryption has been removed, you can USUALLY use other tools, such as handbrake or mkvtoolnix. MakeMKV works just fine opening ISO files, either encrypted or unencrypted, where the DVD file structure is intact. The file structures left over by some random, non-related product are not nearly a...

Re: Star Trek TNG

Can't say for sure if they'll go away with handbrake - my handbrake script only took audio tracks 1 and 3, and that still comes up with the "false time".
