Ripping episodes into separate files

Post by Anametureenthisiast » Sun Mar 24, 2019 6:14 pm

Hi All

I have lots of bluray series, is it possible to rip individual episodes into separate files without having to rerun the ripping process multiple times?

Thanks

Woodstock

On DVD, you can do a "manual disk open", and supply the parameters for the "individual episode" separation. Bluray, you cannot do that at this time, and it would be much more complex.

However, you can split the files apart with handbrake or mkvtoolnix. I use handbrake because it will also reduce the size of the files through better encoding. I posted a message in a topic about Death Note with an example of splitting the 7- and 8-episode MKV files into individual episodes, using the handbrake command line interface (CLI) program.
