Help with MKV & Dolby TrueHD

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have started backing up my BD's using dvdfab so I can stream them. When ripping a BD with DTS-MA it rips and plays perfect but when I try rip a BD that has Dolby TrueHD dvdfab removes the HD audio and it only stream in ac3. I have converting them to MKV.

The last 2 days I have googling and reading post everywhere and it's doing my head in

All I want to know is, is there a way of making a MKV with Dolby TrueHD? If so what is the EASIEST way of doing this.

I have read bits and pieces on this forum but im a bit confused.

the best way I know to go from disk to MKV is a program called MakeMKV. It is fast, in the fact that it does not need to extract then create, and it can handle DD-THD/DTS-MA, subtitles, and everything else you would want in an MKV without any muss or fuss..
Definately worth trying out.

I follow the HD to MKV thread on this forum. Works perfectly every time. It's not a push and click rip, as you have to manually do everything, but I never have any problems.

I use eac3to + AnyDVD HD to rip the chapters, audio, video, and subtitles.
I use BDSup2Sub to find if any of the subtitles are forced.
I use mkvmerge to put everything together.

Perfect rips every time.

Are you sure MakeMKV rips Dolby TrueHD? I read a post somewhere that it doesn't but ill give it a try.

The other night I used HDStream Extractor to extract the main movie and the high def audio and then used MergMKV to remux them, worked OK. The only thing was the volume seemed a bit low.

I now want to try Another EAC3to GUI Plus.

Today i installed Another EAC3to GUI Plus but when I try to open the app is says access is denied and won't open?

Did i miss something?

Problem solved, working now.

makemkv definitely can rip dolby truehd. I have ripped several bd with truehd tracks and played them on my htpc no problem. I also double checked to make sure the truehd light is on for my receiver and it is.
