Key Expired Early?

Started in on ripping a new series of movies tonight. The first two went fine, and the third one was rejected because the key had expired. I'm using the currently posted key good through end of July '17, Ubuntu 16.04, makemkv 1.10.6 Anyone have any solutions? I've verified that the time/date on the ...

Re: Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

I built a tool to help , getdvdtitle reads the checksum of the dvd then queries the microsoft media player api to return the dvd title. https://github.com/donaldsteele/getDVDTitle if you can think of other features just let me know or submit a pull request. I've been using this sort of thing and fo...

Anyone built a web front-end for makemkvcon ?

I've built a headless (no GUI installed) server with MakeMKV on it. I only use the makemkvcon executable (linux) in an automated fashion to rip discs. I've been thinking of building a web front-end to interact with the non-GUI executable so that I could still have some level of interaction from a re...

Re: Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

Correction - a BD can contain a file which can include title information. There is no guarantee that it will be there or that it will have what a reasonable person would consider "valid information". Again, it's down to disk authoring, and some companies are particularly bad at it. True. ...

Re: Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

A crowd-sourced DB is almost certainly the only way it will work. TMDB already has a -LOT- of info, if only they would add fields for the various DVD signatures and language combos... We could query that directly. Since I have been ripping my BR collection to LAN storage (NAS), for me it's really n...

Re: Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

The theory is simple - a "signature" for a disk is obtained, and someone inputs the information for that disk's signature into the database. Someone else can query it, based on the signature, and get back information. I've seen people post about doing just that for as long as I've been ri...

Re: Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

That's fairly inaccurate / unreliable / useless. :) Actually, the fact that the disc label is SO unreliable is why I'm wondering if there's information stored either on the disc or buried in the media files. BluRay discs have information in a text file. SOME plain DVD's have a "disc.id" fi...

Re: Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

"Where" is the info located or available from? In other words, how would I be able to tell if MakeMKV were able to locate data to use for a title or not? The closest I've seen with the GUI version was it naming the movie files according to the disc name (which isn't always the movie title).

Can MakeMKV Determine Movie Title from DVD?

I know that BluRay discs have a text file on them with some relevant information that pertains to the Movie Title of the disc (Like Jaws or Taken 2). Does MakeMKV have a consistent way to determine the movie name of a movie that's on a standard DVD? I've built a Linux host to automatically rip my en...

Current Recommendations for BD Drive for Linux?

Looking for some suggestions for currently available INTERNAL BD Drives that will work in Linux so that I can rip my BluRay collection to disk.
