Re: "Fake playlist" protection - help needed

I am archiving some of my Blu-rays as I have bought the 4K versions. In the case of The Expendables, the 4K discs I bought do not include the Blu-rays, so I am making a rip of the Blu-ray so that I still have access to the HD version of the movie should I ever need it for any reason. Anyway, when I insert the disc, I am greeted with probably 40 titles or so, only 2 of which are of decent size. The largest of the 2 is 25.9 GB, and a play time of 2:01:00, which is considerably longer than the run time listed on the cover, buy about 18 minutes! All it contains for audio is DD Stereo and cover jpg. The segment map is completely random, but the tipper that it is a fake playlist is that it doesn't have any HD Audio tracks. The next playlist seems to be the right run time and surprisingly the segment map is all in sequence, not random.
Am I looking at a not quite perfect situation? I do have Java installed so I presume it is processing and eliminating the remaining bad playlists?

Just tried Expendables 2, got the jre run process, and still have too many titles to pick from. So, this OLD title, which playlist is correct? Why is it not auto-selecting?

(FPL_MainFeature) is the one MakeMKV chose and moved towards the top.

The auto-select isn't going to stop the display of all the possible play lists, it's just trying to get the best candidate to the top.

Does anyone know the correct playlist for Angel Has Fallen (2019)? Im getting a ton of playlists. Ive uploaded the necessary files without the stream to the support email. I also have links to the file if that is needed/allowed to post.

Just FYI, I used handbrake on my decrypted disc copy and it chose playlist 191. I have a copy that I need to test, but so far it appears like the right one. I will confirm, but so far, playlist 191 is the one to choose.

Hi,
I can't work out how to have Make MKV identify the correct playlist. No information comes up that identifies the main feature. When the movie is being processed, the program indicates that java is being utilised. The movie I'm having issues with is "Wonder". I see other posts that Make MKV does select the correct playlist for this movie. I have installed a new version of java and Make MKV. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.
