The Expanse Season 1 [UK] Episode Rips Have Hidden Extra Video

Bit of an odd one here, probably more of an authoring issue but I wonder whether MakeMKV could be processing it differently.

For the UK release of The Expanse season 1, when compared to playing via bluray player each ripped episode has an extra chapter included which has a "Textless Elements" title card followed by video without sound. I assume it quite literally is parts of the episode without any onscreen textual graphics but quite why they'd include it hidden on bluray when it can't normally be played?

So for example with episode 1, playing from bluray player menu it's runtime is 44:49 with 5 chapters but stops at the end of the 4th chapter while the rip (00004.mpls with just one segment map of 3) includes the 5th chapter for a runtime of 51:22. Easily fixed all the episodes by splitting at the last chapter.

Code: Select all

MakeMKV v1.14.4 linux(x64-release) started
Using direct disc access mode
Using LibreDrive mode (v05 id=97A57DF98E20)
Loaded content hash table, will verify integrity of M2TS files.
File 00007.mpls was added as title #0
Title #00000.mpls has length of 106 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 600 seconds and was therefore skipped
File 00005.mpls was added as title #1
File 00004.mpls was added as title #2
Title 00003.mpls is equal to title 00004.mpls and was skipped
Title 00003.mpls(1) is equal to title 00005.mpls and was skipped

Title #00010.m2ts has length of 10 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 600 seconds and was therefore skipped
Title #00001.m2ts has length of 53 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 600 seconds and was therefore skipped
Title #00000.m2ts has length of 53 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 600 seconds and was therefore skipped
Title #00008.m2ts has length of 3 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 600 seconds and was therefore skipped
Title #00002.m2ts has length of 11 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 600 seconds and was therefore skipped
Title 00003.mpls(2) is equal to title 00006.mpls and was skipped
Operation successfully completed
Searching the forum, this might be similar to Thor The Dark World mpls (though now quite an old post) where equal titles are not always quite equal.

Sorry but it's like you read the title and not the actual post. Easter eggs, if this could remotely be classified as such, are irrelevant. The issue is the stream played by hardware players versus what MakeMKV ripped.
