I don't think it is officially release until tomorrow. I think our copy will be arriving tomorrow unless Amazon is lying to me. Sounds like the same protection as the first one though. You can probably identify the correct playlist by runtime.

Yeah, got mine from Amazon a day early. Lots of playlists with the exact (correct) runtime of 2.26.15.

Got 904 reported as correct one, but also got a notice that there is new protection so full disk playback may not be possible.
Ripped it successfully and extracted main movie only successfully (I think), but haven’t watched it yet. Oh, the disk is Canadian.

I am going to upgrade my AVR soon to an X4000 which has networking capabilities, so this is now becoming interesting for me.

Thanks in advance!
Yes you can rip a 3d iso regardless of you blu ray rom drive type. I am not sure what you are referencing about the AVR, but note that I don't know of any that playback iso files. Or other video files for that matter. I don't know about the one you are referencing though. Maybe that is something new that does.

Ah, thanks mate, ok, well I will just have to use them as back up and burn if the original gets destroyed. I will have to check if my blu ray player will play MKV files, that may be the better way tó go then.

Cheers,

Media players have minimal buffers.

So maybe the new version of this server uses a drastically different NIC? I'm going to run that by Western Digital. I'm absolutely at my wit's end. I'm thinking of changing my router and switch, although I've seen reviews of my switch that seem to indicate that throughput is not an issue. Plus I bypassed the switch and that didn't help. So it's one of three things. The media players (I have two), the new servers, or the router (or some combination of the three).

For those of you looking at tweaking settings in Handbrake, I highly recommend you visit the handbrake forums. They have guys there who have played around with the settings and seem to know the exact settings to maximize PQ and compression.

Confirmed that you can copy a 3D blu to ISO in a 2d blu ray player on a PC with Any DVD HD.

Always look here first if you can't figure it out: https://forum.slysoft.com/forumdisplay.php?53-AnyDVD-HD-%28Blu-ray%29

The playlist listed there is the correct one.

Thanks... but, there seem to be varying reports on which playlist is correct. SlySoft forum indicates 00778.mpls. However, MakeMKV forum indicates 00861.mpls, 00198.mpls or title 35 (which is a different playlist I think).

I used 00778 and it worked fine. I trust Slysoft users a lot more than MakeMKV. They have never ever failed me.

Depends on whether it is retail or rental version. The playlist is often different between the two.

True, and variations between regional releases. I have the U.S. retail disc. Will wait and see what others post about this title.

Keep in mind there are almost always duplicate identical playlists and depending on your detection/decryption method you may find multiple playlists that all may be correct. The Hunger Games had 2 correct playlists that you could have used. So this can sometimes create conflicts between forums where one person may find one playlist to be correct while another find a different playlist that is also correct.

Are the running times of the top 3 all the same? I believe the correct is 1:42:13 (at least from my iTunes version). I'd rip the top 3 playlists via MakeMKV, then play back each one and see which one has titles/credits in English. That's the one you want.

I'm going to have to install the 4Tb HDD I have first. I'm out of room but could also use to get rid of a BUNCH of crap on my 17Tb of HDD's I have going already. I am seriously at a crunch on space right now, so much so that I couldn't rip all three if I wanted to do so right now.

With 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire', the mystery continues. BTW, SlySoft forum users are saying you can tell which playlist is right by looking at the 'Status' screen. If this is the drive tab when you click AnyDVD logo in taskbar, all I see is disc label with total size (sectors) and MBytes.

I found an old post from user itznfb that shows where to find this info for The Hunger Games (the first one).

Thank you! Mine (retail USA, from Amazon) shows 00778.mpls as indeed correct for 'Catching Fire'. Earlier, I was looking at 'status' for ripped and mounted ISO, but seems you need to do it via actual disc.

Additionally, you can pipe FIND to eac3to so you don't have to hunt for the playlist in the output.

^ This, that is how I could tell the correct playlist. Funny enough, even Clown_BD detected as it gave me the option to just use 778 instead of seeing the whole list

Frozen is just like the other Disney movies, 1 playlist for English, 1 for Spanish, and 1 for french. The Correct playlist is I think 800. Easy way to tell, look at the three playlists, see where the first seemless branch occurs, play that m2ts separately and it will be obvious (each playlist will have a different 2nd m2ts, one will say Frozen in English, one in Spanish, and one in French)
