Movies are easy and generally none hassle, but i am wondering if people in the community ever buy bluray tv shows. I find very little information on this and i have no idea if people are spending copious amounts of time i assume this would require to do bluray tv shows. Movies are easy. Doing a 13-26 episode per season tv show is going to take time. Right now I am likely looking at hundreds of episodes. Specifically finding a needle in a haystack which is forced subtitles. Odd episodes need forced subtitles. I have no idea which episodes would need them, all I know is even english tv shows on bluray often have occasional episodes with some foreign dialogue and forced subtitles.
My plan is to use xbmc.
I have a bunch of bluray tv folder rips, i am starting here. It also makes little sense in xbmc to click on a tv episode and then launch a disc with an entirely separate menu so I am remuxing each episode to mkv.
My issue and fear is forced subtitles. Originally I hoped to take the mt2s files per episode and could just use those. That however leaves me without chapters, and no forced subtitle detection.
I found another eac3to gui and it looked like the holy grail for what i wanted, but for some reason this apparently is 2 year old software no longer works. From what i can tell when it did work, it automatically muxed forced subtitles and chapters into a nice mkv with one touch and could do large batches. Blurip does this and its great, but I cant do or add multiple streams (tv episodes) per disc to the queue, and i dont want to sound lazy, but if i buy a bluray tv series, I dont want to be spending my entire weekend muxing 80 some episodes. . If blurip could do batch jobs, or the Queue option would actually do multiple streams (tv episode) per disc, I would be happy, since instead of doing 80 some episodes individually, i would instead only have to do 12 discs for example, but as of now, it only seems to allow you to do one stream (tv episode) at a time per disc and many bluray tv shows can have 3-7 episodes per disc. I just dont have that much free time on my hands to be doing this whenever I add a new tv show.
So I am hoping the users on here can recommend the least time consuming option, Clownbd looks closest but I am assuming I would have to do each single remux one by one still even if i do a batch demux it wont do it all like eac3to gui?
I am a bit overwhelmed I was looking at season 5 of the office for instance on bluray with 24 episodes alone in that season. To find forced subtitles, and then mux these seems to be a daunting task. Blurip would be the answer if it could do multiple steams per disc with one click, like makemkv but it cant, yet makemkv has no forced subtitle solution....I just wonder if anyone has experience with tv bluray shows and what would be the easiest quickest solution?
And yes i read all dbones guides, another eac3to gui was exactly what I wanted, but that option is gone.
