View Skipped Titles?

Post by sdwood » Thu Mar 08, 2012 10:21 pm

I have a BD (Easy A) that MakeMKV (v1.7.2) finds that playlist 1 is equal to playlist 30 and so it skips playlist 1. Both playlists point to the main title but the thing is according to BDInfo playlist 1 has 16 chapters (the correct number) while playlist 30 has 106 chapters. I would rather have playlist 1 but MakeMKV is skipping that one in favor of playlist 30. Is there any way to stop MakeMKV from skipping titles?

I'm having the same exact issue with this disc (Easy A Blu-ray).

MakeMKV skips playlist 1 even though playlist 1 is the main title.

This is unfortunately a known problem. The only workaround available is a bit lengthy:

1. Make a full disc backup with MakeMKV, encrypted or decrypted, doesn't matter
2. Navigate into backup folder, then into BDMV, PLAYLIST and delete the file 00030.mpls
3. Open produced backup with MakeMKV and make MKV out of it.

Genius, I wouldn't have thought of doing that.

Good fix, thanks Mike.

Thanks Mike. That worked for me and was relatively painless.

Hello,
Has there been any update to MakeMKV to disable skipping titles?

There is a title I want to rip, but it was skipped during the scan because MakeMKV identifies it as the same as identical to another title.

If it is a DVD, you can use manual DVD mode: /manualdvd/

It is a Blu-ray, so unfortunatly manual mode won't work.

Hello,
I'm wondering if anyone has found a way to view the titles that are skipped by MakeMKV, or if MakeMKV developers are planning to update the program to allow this (perhaps in advanced mode).

I wish there was a way to view all titles.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more attention to this issue. It seems like being able to choose the title is a core functionality of this software. There are so many advanced features and yet this basic functionality is overlooked. What is the major road block with not being able to fix this?

Maybe the reason Mike hasn't stepped up to fix it is that he is approaching the issue differently?

Much of the visible efforts he's put into MakeMKV is to make it "more automatic" at finding the correct stuff to rip. To that end, if the program is locking out titles incorrectly, the "proper" way to fix it is to find out why it made the wrong choice, and correct that.

With that mindset, the "proper" thing would to fall back to obtaining information, i.e., making use of submitted disk information, when the selection is wrong. To that end, the FAQ link in my signature.

This, of course, defies the mindset most of us have, which is, "Give me a [ expletive deleted ] way to override MakeMKV's decisions, and worry about the other later!!!!!"

We can only hope he gives in to us, eventually!

Thanks! This workaround works well and was pretty quick and easy.

Tip: In Windows 10 I had to right click "run as administrator" in order for MakeMKV to access the optical drives.
