City of God - Incorrect File Length

Post by andykai »

Creating this for anyone else who might run into this issue with the City of God blu ray and how I resolved the issue.

I have the Region B blu ray for City of God. Upon playing back after ripping I noticed that there was something wrong. There is multicoloured bars shown, followed by a black screen for the first couple minutes before the movie starts. Also after the final credits there was about 10 minutes of random scenes being played back to back without any audio. The correct movie length is 2 hours 9 minutes and 49 seconds. The file ripped from the disk is 2 hours 23 minutes and 18 seconds. I have attached a couple screenshots of what is occurring for anyone interested. The 10.6GB file is only 56 minutes and 40 seconds, so that can't be the right file. Strangely when playing in my ps4, the blu ray plays at the correct length, without any problems. But I lent the blu ray to my Dad and he says he was met with the multicoloured bars etc on his blu ray player. Not sure what is going on there.

I fixed this by running the file through handbrake and manually setting the Range [seconds] to 00:02:08 - 02:11:57. This deletes the first chapter and starts, and ends, the movie at the correct time. I encoded the movie twice through handbrake trying to get the blu rays subtitles to burn into the new MKV file but never had any success. So I downloaded a bunch of subtitles through subscene and eventually found an srt that syncs perfectly with the newly created handbrake file. The link to that srt file is; ... sh/1834296

Hopefully this helps if anyone else comes across this problem :D

Sounds like the same issue as with the UK release of Shannara Chronicles Season 2 and Indicator/Powerhouse’s version of Mad Magician 3D:
