HD to mkv .....the options are endless!!!! - Page 124

post #3691 of 3740
I found AVS Video editor that does exactly what I need but unfortunately since it's a paid app the demo puts in an audio watermark. Anyone know what other free tool will let me do this?

Anyone have issues with Handbrake lately? I have an MKV that I am converting to an m4V for the iPad. We're going on a trip so I wanted some movies to take with me. I have converted 4 movies fine, but one is a two hour movie of which Handbrake stops at 1hr20 everytime. I can't figure out why, and have never had issues before. I have tried to run it 3x now and each time it says the encoding is finished.

What is the media info of the mkv?

Here you go. I'm running it through Ripbot now to see if it'll go. Not sure why I had issues with Handbrake.
post #3695 of 3740
Hmmm ... nothing sticks out, I was wondering if it was an interlaced video. I assume you haven't watched the mkv to see if it is corrupt? Also, did you try different profiles? I forget which version HB i am using but I usually upgrade to the latest overnight build every few weeks.
post #3696 of 3740
I didn't watch it yet so I haven't checked the MKV (don't want to spoil anything). I did skip to the end of the MKV to at least be sure the credits were there, which they were. I'm running the latest stable Handbrake 0.9.8.

Maybe test with the latest nightly build (I have never had issues with the nightly builds)

Worked fine in Ripbot, I'll try the nightly build of Handbrake to see. Thanks.
post #3699 of 3740
Is this guide still the preferred method for ripping and processing bluray? It's been quite a while since i've done this and was wondering if there's been any changes to the software being used today?
post #3700 of 3740
There's 3700 posts in this thread starting 5 years ago.

Basically the simplest thing to use is makeMKV which is good about 98% of the time. When that fails or if you have other issues to deal with then my second thing is to use MKVtoolnix and/or MKVMerge. After that it is ClownBD which pretty much has dealt with everything I need to do.
post #3701 of 3740
Yup, MakeMKV is the tool you should consider first. If it does not work for some BDs, try the method stated in the thread, i.e. Haali Media Splitter + eac3to + mkvmerge with a single GUI such as BluRip.
post #3702 of 3740
+1 I have been using the original method for five years. There is a learning curve but once learned it is easy to repeat. There are a small number of blu-rays that are complex or I want everything on the disc and there I use slysoft and rip to an .iso. If there is a problem with eac3to.exe just run eac3to.exe /test and you will get a report on what to fix.
post #3703 of 3740
I have not used BluRip. I suppose I should take a gander at that. Is there a link or guide in this thread? I have not read it all so may have missed it.

Here is my BluRip guide from a while back, not sure if anything has changed since:

http://www.mediasmartserver.net/2010/08/24/mkvmania-ripping-to-mkv-with-blurip/

My go to is still Clown_BD + mkvmerge for mkvs.

Quick question about file size. The MakeMKV site mentions something to the effect of "For exactly the same content MKV files are roughly 40% smaller than Blu-ray files." I did not notice this when I made an MKV from one of my blu-rays. Does the encryption (in this case lack of it) make the difference?

Thanks.

If you leave behind all the audio languages and subtitles you don't need as well as the extras it can be smaller, but 40% smaller seems to be a reach.
post #3708 of 3740
Hey guys,

Having an issue with MakeMKV ripping Rock of Ages. I have tried two different times and have been unsuccessful in getting a GOOD rip. Both times I get an error message saying it Failed.
What are my options to get this movie ripped to MKV format?

I have only used MakeMKV and it has worked flawlessly until now......anyone have some suggestions?

Thanks,
Toys

Well, that's just the thing. It claims the 40% reduction "for exactly the same content".

I do rip out the audio languages, menus, etc I don't need with tsMuxer and turn them to ISO with ImgBurn. I've been using that process for a long time and it all works fine. I was looking for some way to save space without having to go through any extra steps for compressing the video and came across that claim. I thought it was odd because I understood MKV was just a wrapper for the content, essentially.

Yes but you must be using other software to remove the encryption from your disk as clownbd does not do this.

Do you use DVDFAB instead to remove the encryption? If not, then what do you use?

For the issue disc try using MakeMKV to do a full disc backup instead of creating an mkv (curious if it would work). AnyDVD and DVDFab would be the other two programs you would use to remove the encryption.

In the process of doing that right now. Didn't know this was a function until today! Will let you know how it goes......

Ended up watching the disc - it gets stuck at chapter 5.........BAD disc, no wonder why it wouldn't rip. And there are no signs of damage or scratch.
Going to return it........
