Ok what is the best FREE alternative to makemkv? I am having trouble getting Expendables 3 to open. Makemkv says it cannot open the disc because the disc uses a newer version of AACS protection. I opened a thread at makemkv picking their brains to see what the deal is. This is the 3rd disc I have tried on two different computers all with the latest version of makemkv.
I rip only the main title with all English subs. I like my files to be MKV. So far as I can tell AnyDVD doesn't have the same functionality as makemkv as far as only ripping main title into a single file container. Handbrake would work but I need to have something running in the background correct? Also I want the file to be a mirror copy of the main film and am wondering if simply placing Handbrakes RF value to 0 would accomplish this.
