Re: "Fake playlist" protection - help needed

If a movie has fake playlists, you'll know it when you go to rip it. Knives Out , for example, appears to have 100 or more various versions of the movie. Most movies only have somewhere between 1 to 3 titles that could be the movie. For example, Léon: The Professional , has two titles. One is the th...

Re: No Drive Logic Found - LG & Windows VM

You should be able to flash a drive from MacOS.

Re: Asus bw-16d1h-u external Uhd friendly?

I have an ASUS BW-16D1HT that's been flashed to 3.10 MK firmware and it works well.

Re: Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection UHD Rips with Playback Issues

The earlier suggestion to try MPV is still a good one I think. VLC seems to hide any errors it encounters during playback, but MPV will spew them out on the command line you launched it from. (At least, that's the case on my Mac.) Let me see if I understand the state of things. Please correct me whe...

Re: Question about read speed of WH16NS40

MakeMKV has a thing called Speed Control. Also, reading UHDs is 'harder' than reading a regular blu-ray. There's more data crammed into the same physical space. If your drive is working fine, I'd be inclined to leave it alone.

Re: WH14NS40 Question

Hopefully you've read this: https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic ... 16&t=19634

As I understand it, WH14NS40 1.05 is encrypted. There is a MK version of that firmware. Put on the MK version and you should be good to go.

Re: "Fake playlist" protection - help needed

I assume Mike still wants emails when MakeMKV determines the incorrect 'main feature.' I emailed the requested data for Knives Out this morning. I'm pretty sure I found the right playlist from the relevant thread on this forum, but I'll have to watch the movie to confirm.

Re: Jurassic World 5-Movie Collection UHD Rips with Playback Issues

Someone else on the forum was recently having an issue where the .mkv files produced by MakeMKV were full of errors. Ultimately, the thing that fixed it was realizing they were on 1.15.3, deleting it and reinstalling 1.15.4. Then things worked fine. https://www.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=16&t...

Re: Dolby Vision Rips Playback with Apple TV 4K?

The short, short version of a long nuanced conversation is this… The Apple TV 4K supports Dolby Vision profile 5. This is the version of DV that streaming like Netflix uses. UHDs with Dolby Vision use profile 7, which is what MakeMKV produces. Apple TV does not support profile 7 and it is up to Appl...

Re: Problem with UHD rips from BE16NU50 - Visual Blocking & Stuttering

I have now played the first couple minutes of vila2k's rip of The Rise of Skywalker . That file has serious problems. Assuming the authoring of the UHD isn't screwed up (it probably is fine), something gets mangled between the bits on the optical disc and the resulting .mkv file. I don't think the f...

Re: Problem with UHD rips from BE16NU50 - Visual Blocking & Stuttering

I made some more rips (from my same decrypted backup). There are 3 English audio tracks, the TrueHD track, the lossy DD core and a DD stereo track, which is the descriptive audio. I made 3 rips, each with only one audio track selected. In two of the three, I got an AV Sync error in 'stream 1' at abo...

This included 'Star Wars A New Hope' which i had previously tried to rip 3 times in the OSX version of makemkv each time wi...
