Friends Blu Ray Collection

Post by buzz234 »

Hi all,

Having a timely process of ripping the Friends Blu Ray collection! ... B0083SEZM0

Does anybody have a list of the titles to rip per disc? As each disc has 40 titles which are over 20mins long (episode time more or less) which then need to be named as they are randomized and some have directors commentary etc - the hard drive space required for S1-7 has been over 600GB so far before putting it into Handbrake etc..

many thanks!

(screenshot attached - 12 titles in season, 30 titles shown!)

Hmm… haven't tried with MakeMKV yet. HandBrake only lists as many ~20-minute titles as there are episodes, AFAIK (not tested S8D1 though).

Does the source file name always say .mpls or are some titles .m2ts?

Not sure if you have ripped it yet, but I am ripping mine right now, and I have found that the titles vary from disc to disc, as well as the order. The way I have been determining which titles to rip is based on the languages.

This first pic is a listing of the correct language layout for an episode.

This one appears to be correct, as it does not have Japanese, but note the 2.0 English.
Capture3.PNG (6.63 KiB) Viewed 112437 times
And This one is easily spotted as incorrect
Capture2.PNG (6.96 KiB) Viewed 112437 times
Basically, I have been opening the disc in a player, and watching the first 5-10 seconds, and from that figuring out what episode it is after I rip the correct 11-13 episodes from the disc.

Its painful, and slow, but it works.

To the above poster..

Do you have a guide as to what .mkv's are to what Ep's?
I think this would be very helpful. I'm currently trying to work it out based on your screen grabs but I am still having a very hard time working out what is what.

Any help with a guide of what is what would be amazing!

Anyone else have any ideas?
I can't work it out, and I'm quickly running out of space! So many eps but I can't work out what's what.

It's painful and slow, but you could use The TV DB to figure out what episodes are what.

So far...only on disk 3 but it looks like each disk episodes are 0071-0082 corresponding to to how many episodes are on the disk. For example, season 1 disk 1 , episode 1 is 0071, episode 2 is 0072, etc. They also save to the hard drive out of order and the trick I saw is simply to select each episode in Makemkv and note on the pane in the right what it is saved as (Friends_Season_2_Disc_1_t00.mkv might be the saved name of S02E12 and not S02E01 as logical file numbering would indicate for instance). I do this before ejecting the disk rather than waste time writing them down. It actually goes quite fast and there is no need to either preview the first few seconds or sort through the language menu's. Afterwards I rename each file "Friends S01E0X" and the run through FileBot (mac) to get the complete names. Renaming a whole disk in order takes about 3 minutes.

Got all mine ripped. Huge pain in the you know what.

I ended up doing it through Windows using AnyDVD HD and Handbrake. Pay careful attention to the audio tracks though. Some titles in Handbrake will be the directors commentary title. You'll know this by it being 2.0 not 5.1. For those, note the file and length then go to MakeMKV and select all titles with the same length eliminating the ones with 2.0 audio tracks and abnormal audio languages.

Took me a long time to get the entire series done. I had to manually match up the episodes then by playing a few seconds of each episode.

Glad I'm finally done with it.

As long as MakeMKV keeps the titles in the physical order on loading the disc this is quite random. I hope this helps: ... 089#p39089

I took the work from a lot of the previous posters and created a python script to automate the renaming process. I created two files: one that contains a dictionary for the renaming, and one that is the python script itself. The script renames the episodes according to the Plex file naming syntax, but it could be easily adapted for other formats as well.
it looks like each disk episodes are 0071-0082 corresponding to to how many episodes are on the disk
I found that to be true, except for a few disks when I needed to grab 0083 as well. I think it was from the seasons that have 25 episodes instead of 24.
just in case someone still finds this thread - that's what I came up with:

S01E01-Friends_Season_1_Disc_1_t04.mkv 2.879.720.178
S01E02-Friends_Season_1_Disc_1_t03.mkv 2.878.105.524
S01E03-Friends_Season_1_Disc_1_t02.mkv 2.876.395.858
This was a huge help in creating my script!! Thanks! I had a few small differences from this, all from one disk (I believe it was in season 2 disc 2).

Anyways... here are the two files: dictionary.txt and Just drop these two files in the same folder as all the episodes and it will rename them. If you see any errors/mistakes let me know and I will make sure to update!
