I completely redid my MakeMKV Guide (free) over at my blog. It is asked on AVS not infrequently how to use MakeMKV and I felt that I should expand this guide. This is the result. Enjoy.http://assassinhtpcblog.com/?page_id=39#guide3
Hey Assassin, I'm just curious as to what you changed from your original MakeMKV guide that makes this one a complete redo. I read the old one over a year ago so I cant quite remember what the differences are. I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything since I havent modified anything in MakeMKV besides the updates for over a year.
Thanks for the guides. I have both your HTPC and Server guides and they are very helpful.
On a further rant about ripping with MakeMKV, whats with all the recent titles lately that put the forced subtitle track on a seperate track that is flaged as NOT forced when ripped with MakeMKV? Usually a tell that it is non forced is when the main menu asks which laguage you select (such as Star Wars or Avengers). My latest 2 rips did not ask which language (Zero Dark Thirty & Argo, and I know Kill Bill is also like this) yet both forced tracks were flagged as NOT forced when I ripped with MakeMKV. I had to change the flag with MKV Merge and remux the movie to get it to show as forced (after I had to go through the sub tracks one by one to figure out which one was the intended forced track which is just time consuming). However my BR playersoftware had no ploblem knowing which track was suposed to be forced.
Is there an easier way to do this?
What if i had not watched the blu ray disc first? I would have no clue weather or not I was even suposed to have subtitles.
