I'm curious, when you do it this way, does mkvmerge demux the files temporarily before remuxing? I'd assume so as even makemkv works that way and its makemkv is just a different GUI for mkvmerge.
Mkvmerge creates and starts writing to the new file immediately, not 100% sure if that means no intermediate steps but that's what I've been thinking. Works well for me regardless, and as I posted earlier I also use mkvmerge to strip out unneeded subtitle tracks (after determining which track represents english foreign language "forced" subs) so it's an easy workflow for me.

However I see that the standalone mkvmerge gui app is scheduled to be deprecated in an upcoming release, with those features rolled into a new mktvtooolnix gui. So, another program to learn, and those screenshots I posted will probably not be much good in a few weeks lol.

I hope you all understand that you are all breaking the law when you are ripping your Blu Rays!! That's why I never did this not worth it!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crimin..._United_States

There is a service that allows you to do that legally in the US

VUDU to GO

How do I get started using the In-home Disc to Digital service?
The In-home Disc to Digital service is a new feature of our VUDU To Go application. The process is quick and easy and allows you to start storing your DVDs in the cloud in minutes. Put your movies in the cloud in just few simple steps:
  1. Download the VUDU To Go application.
  2. Click the "Disc to Digital" option tab in the application.
  3. Insert a disc.
  4. Pick your quality (SD or HD).
  5. Repeat step 3 for another disc.
  6. Complete the checkout process.
You're ready to enjoy your movies anytime, anywhere, on any VUDU-enabled device!

Or move to the UK or France

A law has come into effect that permits UK citizens to make copies of CDs, MP3s, DVDs, Blu-rays and e-books.
Consumers are allowed to keep the duplicates on local storage or in the cloud. https://www.gov.uk/government/public...rivate-copying



While it is legal to make back-ups for personal use, it remains an offence to share the data with friends or family.
Making such copies - including ripping CDs to iTunes - had previously qualified as copyright infringement, although cases were rarely prosecuted.
The changes were detailed in June, when the Intellectual Property Office (IPO) issued guidance, but had not come into effect until now.


"These changes are going to bring our IP [intellectual property] laws into the 21st century," said the minister for Intellectual Property, Baroness Neville-Rolfe.
"They will mean that the UK IP regime will now be responsive to the modern business environment and more flexible for consumers."
The change to the law also allows the parody of copyright works. Previously, there has been a risk of being sued for breach of copyright if clips of films, TV shows or songs were used without consent.

Interesting since CBP will not do anything to anyone bringing counterfeit movies in the USA (and they are paid to enforce the laws) unless there is over $40k (retail) in movies in a shipment. Are digital copies even as good as a ripped BR?

Hmm you bring up an interesting point. So let's help clarify that point. The first line in your shared wiki link reads "Criminal copyright laws exist to protect the creative property of people in the United States"... so with that being said, how does it violate the copyright law if someone rips a movie to their hard drive so that they can enjoy that movie more conveniently and without the need to stream via a service like Vudu? How is that violating a "protection" afforded to copyrighted material? It isn't!

Additionally, if what you speculate is true (that it is unlawful to rip a DVD movie to ones hard drive) then it is equally unlawful to DVR/record a movie (say HBO/Showtime/Streampix etc.) and enjoy that movie in the same manner as a ripped DVD/BD.

Your argument and/or thesis is invalid. It is unlawful as soon as the copied/reproduced copyrighted material is duplicated for distribution. It is NOT unlawful to rip a movie to your hard drive and therefore you don't have to worry... it is ok.. Uncle Sam is not going to be knocking at your door anytime soon asking to see your personal media collection (unless of course you have a subscription based Plex service with that personal media collection )

To be honest, I'm not sure what the point of wse's post was.

True, however, what I quoted from his post is what I was referring to. With that said, his post seems a little contradictory. I'm still wondering what the motivation was posting something insinuating we are all breaking the law.

I agree...they are only interested in the big counterfeiters not someone copying for their own personal use.

Exactly, it was contradictory and why I was confused as well what the post was trying to say.

I cant imagine the poster was concerned about our wellbeing, or the rights of the intellectual property owners. So, the motive remains unclear. Stakeholder in Vudu?
