Wait. AnyDVDHD decrypts UHD (4K) BD Discs?

*Just* purchased a lifetime subscription and am looking forward to getting back to ripping my library, and then resurrecting my unRAID and JRiver.

Yes, and thanks to @aaronwt for bringing CloneBD to my attention, as I no longer have to hunt on the MKV forum for the proper title number for discs that use obfuscation to hide the main feature.

For your UHD drive, try hitting up @alexcoluzzi32 he has been known to help out forum members in need of UHD Friendly drives.

It appears to modify some bits about 8 words into that file and then it also adds about 12 words to the end of the file. Those 12 words appear to be just padding as they look the same to the naked eye for all 3 movies I examined.

The bit twiddling is different for each movie.
First one went from 0000 to 00b4.
Sec. one went from 0000 to 024c.
3rd. one went from 0000 to 0108.

Need to figure out what that means.

Yeah, I don't need that. I just need a simple utility to zap the index.bdmv so it will play on an OPPO.

Just a quick post for a halloween giveaway by WinxDVD Platinum:


https://www.winxdvd.com/giveaway/


Don't know what others may think about 'quality', but it is a 8.1x version. Site claims 500 per day & there is a countdown for when it ends; asof today, 8+ days more to go.


I was looking for doing ripping to iso & found a reference to the site & grabbed one. No updates(?) but think that a $30 lifetime license is available.

Here's another two movies
4th one went from 0000 to 00fc
5th one went from 0000 to 0138

Pattern isn't particularly obvious.

Why is this relevant to ripping Blu-rays? I went back to it first being raised and still didn’t understand.

It's relevant, IMO, because if you use MakeMKV to create a BD backup it won't play on an OPPO. With this information one can modify the rip so that it can play.

I hope you'll agree to its relevance now.

If not, I can desist from posting any more information about how to get the MakeMKV BD backups to be able to be played.

.

Odd, I thought I had at least once used MakeMKV to produce an mkv file I played on my Oppo 95.


I have definitely used DVDFab to create mkv files, which did(still do) play on my Oppo 95.


It did cause problems, though. When I navigated to any such file, the Oppo needed a long time (10-20 seconds) to recognise the file. If I tried to select/play the file within that time, the Oppo would hang, but if I waited long enough, the Oppo would either happily play the file, or allow me to navigate away from it.


So I stuck to simply doing 1-1 rips, and contented myself to simply navigation to within the "Stream" folder and played the .m2ts file, until I got my Nvidia Shield and then ripped to ISO files, which the Shield will play, while the Oppo won't.

MakeMKV created .mkv files play fine on my OPPO. And for content where the BluRay does not have anything extra of interest that's the way to go.

The manipulation is necessary only for what MakeMKV calls "disc backup." In that case the index.bdmv needs to be "updated" for the OPPO to play it.

I probably didn’t go back far enough to for the relevance .. which I now understand. Thanks. For bonus points, please explain HOW it gets the Oppo to play the file.

That is beyond the ken of mortal men.

My plan is to write a little utility in C that does the update and try it out a couple times. Should only be like 5 lines of C, ignoring any error checking.

Now, to dust off my 20yo rustified C...

bdmv modifier is only needed for the 1080p "full disc backup" bdmv folders and not for the uhd folders in my experience.


Interesting you guys are on this topic, i just wrote Oppo today asking if they'd do us a solid and design a little box with one USB input and one HDMI output solely for the purpose of bdmv folder playback. I've yet to find software or hardware that does such an excellent job with bdmv folder playback. (this would be where someone says hey dummy, xxx works just fine


The Oppo guy told me yes it would be elementary to do but we no longer manufacture products. Sounded suspiciously to me like "bring me lunch tomorrow and we'll disucss it further I know a bunch of out of work engineers ;-)"


And lest I be taken seriously and reported to the powers that be I was just making a funny.

does anyone own or know someone who owns an LG slim BU30N drive?
Looking for an image of it's firmware. I am very passionate about finding this. Thank you.

Maybe pick a different drive from the friendly list? BU30N seems abandoned.

Totally, but apparently getting a dump of the firmware off the 30 will enable the 40 and 50 to be made friendly.

Attached is what I came up with. Seems like updating the "size" field is all that's necessary.

Feel free to try it out. I suppose I should include some documentation but basically:

Compile the program with a C compiler.
Run it by giving it the path to the index.bdmv file. It will make a new one with the updated field and save the old one with the name <name>.original.

It only works on one file at a time. On a unix-like machine you can use find to do a bunch at the same time.

My apologies if this is the wrong place for this. I figured I’d have the best chance of an answer here.

I’ve been using DVD Audio Extractor to rip audio tracks from DVDs to my music server/streamer. I have one DVD (not the BD version...I don’t think the BD version has this?), Apollo 13 Collectors Edition, that plays the entire music score when displaying the menu.

When DVDAE reads and displays the audio titles/chapters from this DVD, I’m unable to tell which title/chapter includes this music score.

I don’t suppose anyone here has successfully identified and ripped the music score from this DVD?

Thanks.

To play the entire score, wouldn't it need to be as long as the movie?

I hauled out my Apollo 13 DVD, and although it is a two-disc set, I don't believe it is the Collectors Edition. I checked both discs with makemkv, but couldn't find anything as you describe; also played the discs with VLC, but the menus were very short.

You could try makemkv on your discs; it allows to rip any selected audio track without the video.
