Where to find the default profiles on PC?

Post by StripLV » Sat Nov 17, 2018 2:53 am

I want to create a new Profile. I searched for the Default ones (Default, AAC-Stereo, Flac, WDTV) but I can´t find them on my whole PC.
I searched for all .XML files on my PC and for all with the ending mmcp.xml but there is None.

I thougt they has to be the here if I read correct here in the forum:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MakeMKV

and from there I want to copy it to here and change my parameters :
C:\Users\User\.MakeMKV

Please tell me where to find the "Default" one or post here the Content.

Thanks

The default profiles have been stored in the file appdata.tar, found in the MakeMKV program directory.

A program that understands .tar files is necessary to pull them out; I extracted them with the tar utility that comes with Linux and MacOS, but there are several programs (like 7zip) for Windows that can read them, too.

The profiles for 1.14.x have changed, but I haven't extracted them yet. You can see the earlier profiles in this thread:

This is the contents that I found when I used `tar xfv appdata.tar`:

Code: Select all

Note the 4 XML files, default.mmcp.xml, flac.mmcp.xml, wdtv.mmcp.xml, and aac-st.mmcp.xml.

Their contents are as follows:
