What is "SEG"?

Post by swampdaddy » Fri Jul 31, 2020 5:52 pm

I'm looking at Addams Family BD and I see "SF" and SEG". I'm assuming that SF = Special Features and that DS = Deleted Scenes. But, what is "SEG"?

Thanks.

Where do you even see those flags?

I've seen screenshots of HD DVDs in this forum where MakeMKV was able to tell, which track had which name. Always assumed that's something special with HD DVDs.

I renamed like thousands of 01234.mkv files to the original name by playing the disc and just checking, which Extra on the BluRay had which title length and renaming the appropriate file.

I always assumed segment as well.

My understanding is that these "Comments" appear for discs where MakeMKV uses Java to process BD+ code, notably fake playlist discs. (Although it seems that the Main Feature is not always being identified correctly.)

I never ever have seen those names, and I processed hundreds of BluRays with MakeMKV so far, and I never had any problem ripping any of the discs either. I'm kinda confused :(

I always have had a Java installed, currently Java 1.8.0_251 both x86 and x64.

Yes, my MakeMKV is allowed to contact web server for updates
No, I have not set up a Custom Java executable location (and MakeMKV never asked me for one either, so it must have found the former mentioned installed Java)

Does it have to do with the Output file name template somehow? Do I need to write something specific in there?
