Ripping DVD into a single MKV file

Post by BenNoir » Wed Nov 02, 2016 8:11 pm

I'm new so sorry if this has previously been answered.
I'm using the MacOS version of MakeMKV, and I'm ripping DVDs. One DVD per episode of an older TV show.
It seems to rip fine, but it produces a folder for each episode with individual MKV files for each title in the episode.
Is there a way to rip each DVD so it produces a single MKV file per episode?

thanks

Are you specifying the same directory for the output? You would also need to make sure the files have different names.

MakeMKV was working correctly. It was making one MKV file per episode (just as I desired) but there are more than one episode per DVD. My bad. So far, great tool.
