Re: The Alfred Hitchcock Classics Collection

I just got this set today, and was able to rip all 4 UHD discs. I did have a couple of odd issues. Both Rear Window and The Birds failed to load the first time. I got the fast disc spinning problem (that I haven't seen in ages). The second attempt for both worked. On Vertigo, the disc wasn't recogni...

There are 4 main titles. I'm guessing that since it's a Disney disc that the correct one is 800. I guess I'll find out shortly!.
800 seemed to be the correct title.

Re: Raya and the Last Dragon (2021)

UHD from Walmart decrypted OK. There are 4 main titles. I'm guessing that since it's a Disney disc that the correct one is 800. I guess I'll find out shortly!.

Re: Backing up a 4K disk correctly

Did you set your drive to unlimited read speed? I can rip a UHD with my Asus drive in about 30 minutes.

Re: Simple hack makes USB DVD drive usable

Why do you need to do this? I can rip using a DVD with no issues.

Re: Application failed to initialize

Try running makemkv from the command line, it will show more errors and may give you a clue what's happening.

Re: Correct way to convert 4k HDR rips?

I recently got a bunch of 4k HDR movies and after ripping them my 1TB drive is about full. Usually with 1080p videos I re-encode them to make them smaller, but from what I've seen I can't use handbrake because it has an 8-bit internal pipeline. Is there any other software I could use as an alternat...

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

I see that 1.15.3 is out, so I decided to waste several hours of my life installing it. :o

Once downloaded and extracted it took me 1 minute, 14 seconds.

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

I try not to say anything on a forum that might offend someone, but I can't bite my tongue on this one. Building makemkv for Linux is trivial. If you're not up to the task, you probably should be running Windows or MacOS. I was almost going to say that in my response... The first build can be a lit...

Re: Please learn how to distribute packages

It takes about 2-4 hours work. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. DO IT and stop wasting our time! Really, 2-4 hours of work??? Let's look at the real numbers. Done from my Linux Mint laptop (I didn't include download time, as you'd have to download regardless of how it's distributed): brian@auton ~/Downloads/makem...
