Re: How to tell which title is which episode of TV series?

Ah, gotcha.

I'll tinker around and report back once I have a more definite answer.

Re: How to tell which title is which episode of TV series?

Bitjam, Very interesting! So essentially, if you were to sort the mpls files in ascending order, and pair this up with the m2ts that they correspond to, this would tell you what order the titles are in? I think I might have to dust off my shell scripting and see what I can do with that... Very cool,...

Re: FEATURE REQUEST: Display Original Title # in GUI

+1 to this. This would be extremely helpful when doing discs with multiple episodes.

Is this possible for blu-ray discs as well, or only for DVDs?

Re: How to tell which title is which episode of TV series?

Yeah, I don't think there's any way to do this based on what it's currently returning. I tried the IMDB thing, but it was tending to give me the full run time with commercials (e.g. 60:00) rather than the exact length of just the episode (e.g. 44:02). Really wish there was a better way to do this. I...

Re: How to tell which title is which episode of TV series?

Hmmm... I've definitely had this issue. The biggest offender so far has been Mad Men.

Any suggestions on how I can tell which title is which episode?

How to tell which title is which episode of TV series?

Hi all, I'm in the process of ripping some TV shows using MakeMKV. What I am wondering is if there is a way of knowing which title on the disc (e.g. title01, title02, etc) corresponds with which episode. It seems that the numerical order of the titles is not always in line with the actual order that...

Re: Simple Howto for re-encoding (bluray) MKV's (linux)

Knock on wood, but I *think* it worked--at the least, it made it all the way through without failing, and there's no obvious distortion/artifacts--far better than the last time around! So my next question is this--we compiled ffmpeg with almost everything disabled. Why not just enable everything? Wh...

Re: Quantum of Solace - MakeMKV rip fine, but can't transcod

Trying that right now. We'll see how that works--it's showing me percent complete and ETA, which is a change from before, so that's a start at least... What could be causing it to do this? Is there a logile generated by x264 anywhere that I can look at? I've scoured the web looking for it's logfile ...

Re: Simple Howto for re-encoding (bluray) MKV's (linux)

Thanks, I'll give that a shot.

Is there a logfile created anywhere that I can look at to get more info as to why this might be failing 2/3 through? Any idea why x264 could be having so much trouble with the MakeMKV generated file?

Quantum of Solace - MakeMKV rip fine, but can't transcode

Hi all, I've been trying to work on Quantum of Solace BluRay, and while MakeMKV seems to have done it's job and the resulting file works fine, when I try to transcode it, nothing I do seems to work. I wanted to see if anyone here had had similar issues or had any ideas about what might be causing th...

Re: Simple Howto for re-encoding (bluray) MKV's (linux)

The updated ./configure seems to work for me. FYI, you have a typo in it though--it says "--enable-ecoder", when it should be "--enable-encoder". Thanks for the quick response! A couple of quick questions: If we're only calling x264 in the encode (not resizing or piping), does ffmpeg still need to b...

Re: Simple Howto for re-encoding (bluray) MKV's (linux)

That did it! Thanks for the help... Don't know why I didn't think to try an older version, I feel a bit silly now.

FYI, looks like there is a bug listed by ffmpeg for just this error: https://roundup.ffmpeg.org/issue2042

Hopefully they'll fix it soon!
