Re: Life of Pi

I was able to resolve the issue (I think). I had anydvd in the machine so I started it first and then started makeMKV. The process completed normally and ripped the disk. I opened about 1 minute in my theater and started correctly so the Pressure is off. I presume what I sent will assist you in impr...

You should be getting an email at svq@makemkv.com with a link to the file. If that does not work let me know.

How will I know when the issue is resolved?

Re: Life of Pi

Sorry But I can not find any links to an svq or any instructions. I did pull out a text file from the dump that was titled log.txt. It is here: Debug log started at Mon Mar 11 18:53:27 2013 , written by MakeMKV v1.8.0 win(x64-release) Using 524544KB for read cache. 001005:0000 MakeMKV v1.8.0 win(x64...

Re: Proper way to convert existing files to MKV

This might be better handled off line. My name is "barry". I own the domain "the-gordons.net" so my email address should be obvious. I don't do anything fancy. My goal is to have just the movie, no trailers, No FBI warnings, no ... Just the movie. I tell MakeMKV to skip any file segment that is 10 m...

Re: Subtitles and forced subtitles

Thanks for the reply. That helps. I would have liked to use MKVtools, but from what I see there is onkly a MAC version, and I do my work on a PC based system.

Subtitles and forced subtitles

I have several questions on forced subtitles and subtitles in general in various scenarios. I have ripped all my DVD's and BR disk to ISO folders (Blurays have BDMV folder BDMV\Strean etc., DVD's have a folder with Video_TS .ifo, .bup and all the .vob files.) I have no issue having MKV re-process th...

Re: Proper way to convert existing files to MKV

Well I am about 1/4 of the way through my DVD collection (523 total movies/TV shows). I wrote a program that does it all automatically using Makemkv in command line mode. I just run it all night and most of the time during the day. It is somewhat tailored to my NAS configuration but I can modify it ...

Proper way to convert existing files to MKV

BR files: I have converted all my BR disks to decrypted BR format on my NAS. I converted one disk, Avatar, by giving MakeMKV the file \BDMV\Stream\00000.m2ts. The conversion went smoothly and the reultant file seems to play perfectly (I only sampled the begining). I am new to MakeMKV and read here t...

File Size

I had ripped a Blu Ray disk to Blu ray format using another ripper before I discovered MakeMKV. The resultant m2ts file was about 27 Gbytes. I then asked MakeMKV to convert that file to mkv format (I pointed makemkv to the stream.index file). It read and processed the file but the rsultant file was ...
