DVD with Commentary

Post by jdcollier » Wed May 29, 2019 12:25 am


I am ripping a DVD where the producer is narrating commentary over the entire length of the episode. When I rip this the commentary is not present. I ahve notice that as a bonus feature on the DVD there is a click "off" or "on" for the commentary.

Any idea is there is a setting to pull the commentary?

The Descriptive Audio and commentary audio track can have better specifications than the movie audio, so MakeMKV's default selection rules can give them priority over movie audio. Or it could exclude them completely.

This will explain how to select other audio tracks for inclusion: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16405

Generally, I have MakeMKV select ALL audio and subtitle tracks, then use VLC to chose the ones I want, and finally have handbrake compress the file with just what I want in it.
