Re: Failed to open disc: audio DVD

MakeMKV is for ripping video, not audio so it cannot handle DVD-Audio discs. (I've run into this before).

Re: Profile: FLAC vs Default

I can only speak to my experience with audio FLAC. I have several albums that are FLAC 5.1. They play perfect on my Yamaha AVR.

I don't know how something like Atmos will translate to FLAC 7.1.

Sure.
But what I can't find is the shared folder on the NAS.
I've looked in /mnt and /media and they are empty.
We have no way of knowing how you have the NAS mounted to your system. This has nothing to do with MakeMKV, it's purely you learning how to use linux.

Re: Can't allocated folder on NAS to save projects

You are looking in the .MakeMKV directory.

You need to look in the directory where you have the NAS drive mounted. Probably in /media or possible /mnt. So on the left pane you'd click on Computer and then check /mount

Re: Linux ripping

As dcoke22 said, RAM and CPU are not as important as the drive. But he forgot to mention since you will be using a NAS is the network. If it only has a 100M network that will slow things way down. Hopefully it has a 1G network. As to the Linux distro, my personal choice is Linux Mint. Second would b...

Re: he's a special type of guy

I can also vouch that I've had nothing but a good experience with Alex. Based on my experiences, I'm sure any less-than-perfect interactions were not of malicious intent. I know we all want our business transactions to go perfectly, but I try to remember these forum deals are typically a one-man sh...

Re: MakeMKV not writing Dolby Vision

I don't use MakeMKV on Linux, so I'm guessing a little bit. That said, I think MakeMKV links to some libraries on your system and those libraries might be out of date. The Linux build post ( https://forum.makemkv.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=224 ) has talk about libavcodec among other things. ...

The Ubuntu version I have is 1.16.7. Is that not the newest version?
21.09 (or in my case 22.03) is the mediainfo version. 1.16.7 is the current MakeMKV version.

Re: MakeMKV not writing Dolby Vision

Opps, I missed that he was on 21.09.

So I guess the question then is why when I rip on linux that I get DV and the OP does not?

Re: MakeMKV not writing Dolby Vision

I have an old version of mediainfo: 19.09, so that explains it. Also it's probable why OP thinks DV isn't being written. The Ubuntu version is very old. EDIT: updated to Mediainfo 22.03 and this is what the file looks like now: Video ID : 1 ID in the original source medium : 4113 (0x1011) Format : H...

Re: MakeMKV not writing Dolby Vision

Mediainfo doesn't directly show DV. Here's an example from a DV file: Video ID : 1 ID in the original source medium : 4113 (0x1011) Format : HEVC Format/Info : High Efficiency Video Coding Format profile : Main 10@L5.1@High HDR format : SMPTE ST 2086, HDR10 compatible Codec ID : V_MPEGH/ISO/HEVC I u...

Re: MakeMKV not writing Dolby Vision

DV rips fine for me on Mint. I'd suggest building it yourself.

How are you verifying that the DV layer is present in the MKV?
