Re: IMAX Format Question

That's really a question for the Handbrake Forum, but I do know the answer - Handbrake won't switch resolutions during an encode. That's why you had to do the cropping, to make it fit.

Re: ILLEGAL REQUEST:MEDIA REGION CODE IS MISMATCHED TO LOGICAL UNIT REGION on non forerin films

MakeMKV won't change the region in the drive, so you will need to do it at the system level. Some players will change it as needed, but you want to be careful, as drives have a limit to the number of times they can change regions (usually 5). Personally, if I were limited to just a DVD drive AND I w...

Re: WH14NS40 - Flashed to Official 1.05, now reads "No Disc"

The new one should say it was built in the last 6 months, so it will be capable of UHD. And compatible with flashing with new firmware. Any drive built prior to the end of 2015 is not going to be capable of UHD ripping at the hardware level. The original firmware, though, may be capable of LibreDriv...

2012 or 2021? A 2012 drive won't work with firmware intended for a new drive.

Re: ILLEGAL REQUEST:MEDIA REGION CODE IS MISMATCHED TO LOGICAL UNIT REGION on non forerin films

Is there another error given prior to that, about the drive having RPC that cannot be bypassed? MakeMKV can brute-force most region protection, but some drives refuse that. My guess is that some program has set the drive's region code to something other than your local one (region 1 for North Americ...

Re: Ripping tv series

Even when there are chapters it can be a pain. Some series always use X chapters per episode, except that the first episode of a season has X+1 chapters (extra for "previously on" lead-ins), and X-1 or -2 on end of series episodes (no "next time"). Viewing the file in a player th...

Re: Ripping tv series

As mentioned, mkvtoolnix is one way. I go directly to having handbrake doing the splitting, because I'm also going for better compression.

Just wait until you find a disk that is "SD on BD", standard definition on a Bluray disk. 24+ episodes per file are common.

Re: My Disc Drive no longer reads discs - "No Disc"

Host key revocation applies to the key the "player" software uses. MakeMKV's key is different than AnyDVD's, so even if AnyDVD was revoked, MakeMKV's should still work.

But a revoked host key should not result in "no disk".

Re: Burned movie from Bluray has stutter when flashes occur on screen

MakeMKV doesn't care about the bitrate. It's your playback software that cares. Have you tried different players? Both VLC and Kodi are available for a wide variety of hardware, and are pretty good at dealing with high-bandwidth video, unless the hardware is slow.

Re: Does any Blu Ray drive work?

Different answers for different criteria. Yes, MakeMKV will work for regular BDs with just about any major-brand BD player, but some are more "future proof" than others. A BD drive that has a LibreDrive-compatible firmware will be less susceptible to player key revocation and any complaint...

Re: Burned movie from Bluray has stutter when flashes occur on screen

The main thing to understand is how video is "shrunk". Except in the case of raw video from a camera, you do not have complete, individual pictures for video stream. Ignoring the official terminology, you have an "initial frame" that is complete, followed a series of "differ...

Re: I created a site to help people know what titles to rip from discs

Using WebAssembly will give a number of people pause, in and of itself. The security-inclined among us have it disabled. It does NOT have a good reputation.

Re: Disc rips perfectly, but has playback issues

Most likely the disk has areas that are hard to read, but do eventually decode. Playback falters while the drive is trying to read it in "real time".

When playing the MKV, do you have glitches, too, or just when doing a real-time playback?

Re: Doubts about Intel processors compatibility with LGWH16NS60

Ripping UHDs isn't processor-dependent. There are people ripping with ARM-based machines, including the new M1 Macs and Raspberry Pi boards. Playback with "Certified UHD software", such as PowerDVD, is going to enforce the "certified UHD hardware" requirements. Other H.265-compli...
