Re: update mkv writing librarys

Does the OP mean the data shown by MediaInfo? Writing application : MakeMKV v1.15.3 darwin(x64-release) Writing library : libmakemkv v1.15.3 (1.3.10/1.5.2) darwin(x64-release) As near as I can tell, they track closely with the version of MakeMKV. But maybe things are different on Linux or Windows?

Re: Two copies of a Movie on UHD Disc

In this case, the one you want is undoubtedly the one with chapters, not the one without.

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

I have an LG C8 with an AppleTV. I've had zero luck producing MP4s that play in Dolby Vision, so I figured I'd at least archive the 8 season boxset as Dolby Vision MKVs, get the benefit of HDR10, and then figure out some way get DV MP4s working in future. But, when I watch these MKVs on my LG C8 th...

Re: USB DVD Drives

My drive is connected via USB and MakeMKV works just fine. Try some other discs. It might be that the one you tried is dirty.

I'm not on Big Sur yet, but I assume one just has to adjust the gatekeeper options, just like on Catalina.

Re: Quality of internal AC3 encoding

I'm going to guess that he's referring to going from the lossless DTS track to a compressed AC-3 track, which is limited to 640 kbit/s. It is likely impossible to do that compression in an unnoticeable way. But, AC-3 is widely supported and highly portable. I'm not aware of any quality problems with...

Re: Dolby Vision now possible through MP4 Mux.

On a Mac, one can use MKVToolNix or ffmpeg to remux a MP4 into a MKV container.

Re: Dolby Vision and 1.15.3

I run a Plex server on a Raspberry Pi 4 with an external USB drive for storage. It does Direct Play of 4K stuff just fine.

Re: Makemkv Ripping Issue in Mac OS

I often make decrypted Blu-ray backups on my Mac. The resulting folder structure often looks like this: <Movie Name> BDMV CERTIFICATE MAKEMKV AACS CMAP discattd.dat So yes, there is an AACS folder, but it lives inside the MAKEMKV folder. Is that where your AACS folder is?

Re: XBox 360 HD-DVD Drive Issues

I don't think Windows 10 knows how to play HD DVDs. I don't think it knows how to play a Blu-ray by default either.

Does MakeMKV recognize the optical drive? Can you rip your HD DVD content using MakeMKV?

Re: Disc just won’t open or recognize

I assume you still have the Asus BW-16D1HT 3.00 you mentioned when you were having trouble with Get Out. I also see in your posts about Ralph Breaks The Internet, that Billycar11 concluded that your drive was starting to fail: an asus drive slowing down at the midway point at the layer switch on bd-...

Re: Back to the Future UHD - Retail

Have you tried cleaning the disc? I know the disc is new probably looks clean, but there are often nearly invisible films or residue on the surface. I like the warm water & dish soap method, though other people like using isopropyl alcohol.
