Why two copies of the same UHD movie when ripped?

Post by Qaenos » Wed Oct 21, 2020 4:49 pm

I notice that a lot of UHD rips end up with two .mkv copies of the same main movie. The size is 1 KB different between the two files, but other than that I can't tell the difference.

Does anyone know why there are two copies of the main movie ripped into seperate .mkv files and why one is 1KB more than the other?

That would depend on the movie... Disney disks will have 2, sometimes more, copies, where the only difference is what language is used for the titles and credits.

It's also worth looking at the include languages and subtitles per playlist. Japanese language and subtitles tracks are often isolated to a specific playlist.
