Re: Out of Date Keys?

The file is incorporated into _private_data.tar when it is downloaded. Yes, it appears that it is only downloaded when a UHD is inserted. So checking the date on _private_data.tar will show you when MakeMKV last saw the need for a key update. If you have debug logging turned on, you'll see the downl...

Re: Out of Date Keys?

If you're referring to the manual download, that file is not updated as frequently as the automatic download that MakeMKV tries to do, if you have not disallowed it. Or, if your system isn't BLOCKING it, which can happen, too.

Re: Copy Protection error on Lord of The Rings DVD

You only get 5 region changes with most drives, then you're "stuck" on that region. It is bad to change it unnecessarily, because MakeMKV can usually work around it. I have not had any disk that it couldn't work around, and I've had disks from regions 1, 2, and 3 through my drives.

Re: Might there be a way to flag the language for video streams?

Disney disks use 00800.mpls as the English play list. Same for all Disney/Pixar/Sony disks produced in the last 5+ years. The only difference between the 800, 801, and 802 (sometimes 803) play lists is the signs and titles. Same audio options available.

Re: Rise of Skywalker (blind) Stereo Audio Issues

You have discovered the "Descriptive Audio" track.

Allegedly, the higher-spec audio tracks should be compatible with stereo, but that depends on your playback environment.

Re: 1917

Hash keys for UHD disks get updated daily, sometimes multiple times per day, and MakeMKV will try to download the latest each time you start it.

Or, it is PFM ---- Pure F'n Magic. :)

Re: Star Wars Alien Subtitles

That does make sense, given that I've seen messages about subtitles causing problems with HDR and DV.

Re: Star Wars Alien Subtitles

The "foreign audio only" subtitle track on Star Wars disks varies between tracks 4 and 7. I used to have a list, but I gave it to someone else after I ripped and compressed my set. And Disney does not use the "forced" flag on subtitles, so that's why the "forced only" tracks were empty and deleted. ...

which of the 4 main file contents is the English Intro ?
The source file name that ends in 800 is English. 00800 is the most common one on Disney-distributed disks.

Re: License Key Not Working

Your best bet is to contact support@makemkv.com, and not anyone else. Only Mike can deal with key issues, if the key itself is wrong.

Re: License Key Not Working

If you used "copy/paste" to input the key, try typing it in, instead. Certain email programs, like ALL versions of Outlook, including the online version, will "copy" more than just the text. When you paste it in, you have invisible formatting characters in the mix. It's something I have to deal with...

Re: Confirming Compatibility

Firmware date: 2011-11-08 12:34:56
Drive too old. It will never be UHD-capable. And probably not LibreDrive capable.

Note that UHD capability is not a prerequisite for LD to be of benefit, but the older the drive, the less likely there will be LD-capable firmware available.

Re: Aussie ..The Rise Of Skywalker...

Probably because you already have them in the most recent hash key file you received; it's only newer disks that you would need to have the latest one. Check your DNS; if you're not using Google as one of your DNS servers, you may be getting bogus results for the domain that MakeMKV uses, due to "co...

Are you also getting this error? Automatic HK downloading is disabled or failed. If you have disabled contacting the web server for updates, or your have software preventing contacting it, you can't get the latest key file. Sometimes it's as simple as making sure your using a DNS server that doesn't...

Re: Aussie ..The Rise Of Skywalker...

Automatic HK downloading is disabled or failed.
You need to fix this part; otherwise, you can't get the keys that have been generated.
