Ripping Blu-Rays II - Page 36

post #1051 of 5691
The fog is beginning to lift for me. accident posted this reply on NMT forum and the light went on:

"Now that data is generally not used by the jukebox software except to scan/import/create the "jukebox". The jukebox is the working copy and also gets data your missing from internet sources. the nfo/artwork that media managers save is the "original" and those remain untouched/read only. This is why you see yamj making a new jukebox fodler with copies. NMJ also makes a database and saves artwork copies ready for tv usage. It's just how this software works."

Yup, that is what I just said as well It is important to separate the jukebox folder from the actual metatdata/pic files saved with your media.

For me, the ideal scenario (and what I do) is I rather worry about the metadata myself instead of YAMJ. So I use metabrowser, EMM, whatever to make sure my metadata is exactly how it should be, and then YAMJ respects this. I have it working for the most part but do periodically run into bumps where YAMJ doesn't want to play by the rules. I honestly have zero need for YAMJ to go out and scrape data, just create the jukebox with my files.

And your concern with YAY and TOMY is that they will somehow muck up your jukebox files, so you use a tool that does everything except touch/edit the jukebox files ... which you leave for YAMJ ... ?

Thank you.
I downloaded and ran Ember. It took my A300/YAMJ to another level.
Unfortunately, with a 400+ database finding and fixing the newly wrong entries was a bit of a challenge, but it got all the popular movies right automatically, all of the originals of the remakes were wrong, and hit or miss on the 'classics'. It also insisted to rename all the foreign films with their original names, but that was easy to find and fix.

I wish there was better documentation for ember.

I've used EMM for quite sometime and I'm very familiar with most of its functionality - it really is about as good as it gets, and it's free

A simple query in Google for 'ember media manager user guide' will bring up a few decent results

Anyone having trouble with Warrior and Clown_bd.
It is Playlist # 789
This keeps the movie in correct order.

I was having issues with AnyDVD HD, but after they did an update, I was able to do it.

The issue was not ripping. It was an issue of scenes being out of order when ripping only main movie with Clown_bd. This is a another failed attempt by studies to confuse ripping tools.

I think he meant studios, not studies. They try to make it difficult for the software to correctly order the tracks.

Is there a list of movies that are known to have this problem? And what is the workaround for that?

No list. The workaround is simple, choose the right playlist, or wait until blackssr surfaces

Maybe we could start a list? D you should start the list since you are the "Yoda" of ripping.

There were 46 different playlists on Warrior. It take about 10 minutes to rule out 90% of them. The rest is just putting the correct order together. I just do it on my editing PC by watching the clips to make sure they flow correctly from one scene to the other. Usually it is only 2 or 3 clips that are out of order. Once those are found the list of correct possiblities is limited to only one or two at most.

OK, my workaround is to avoid the movie!

Then the Studios win.... Not on my watch!

Warrior is a great movie. I highly recommend it.

If you had no issues with the initial rip, then can I assume you made a full ISo using just AnyDVDHD?

Nope, I used ClownBD and rip main movie only as I do with all of my BDs.

None. I only had two options the main movie, and some 30 min. previews. The only movies, I've had to choose a playlist from are Disney Movies.

Retail or Rental version?

But I also have over 100TB of storage available at home between my WHS, unRAID and RAID5 arrays so storage isn't an issue for me.

Full ISOs are a waste of time and space. "Ripped ISOs" load in seconds on my Dunes as opposed to minutes with full ISOs.

Retail. I bought it at Walmart for $10 dollars on sale. It comes with bluray disk only.

I've notice that 95% of the bluray disk only movies I've bought (mainly at Walmart) do not have multiple playlist. This includes about 3 disney titles I've bough at Walmart as well.

The other movies I've bought at Best Buy when the movies is first release have more video tracks to choose from.

I wonder if this is the reason why this bluray movies are $10 bucks lol.

Interesting for sure. I wonder how many versions exist in the wild?

If I want to reduce a size of a ripped blu-ray, does eliminating everything except the film and one audio option do that?
