[RESOLVED] Seamless branching issues?

Post by renols » Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:50 am

Hi.

Disney have just released a bunch of their animation movies on 4k. I got one of them, Cars 2, and wanted to make a compressed mkv file for my home system, while leaving the physical disk on my shelf.

This disk however has no less than 74 m2ts files in the english playlist. Yes, 74.

When I demux the video and the audio with dgdindexnv I end up with a h265 file a thd file, an a3c file named embedded, and a bunch of other ac3 files. And also some .sup files.

If I take these files and mux them together with mkvtoolnix and play back the file, the thd file seems to be in perfect sync, and the subs also seems to be in perfect sync. But the embedded ac3 file is in sync at the start, but at the end they are several seconds out of sync.
Whats strange about this mux is that my player, MPC-HC reports a thd and two ac3 files, eventhough I have only muxed in the thd file and the embedded ac3 file. I am not quite sure why MPC-HC shows 2 ac3 files. I can choose both, and one is way louder than the other.

I believe that is is related to the huge number of m2ts files. I don't have the technical knowledge about ac3 to speculate as to what might happen.

If i use eac3to to demux video and audio, I end up with a h265 file, a thd+ac3 file and a bunch of other ac3 files and sup files.
With this mux my player MPC-HC only shows a thd file and one ac3 file as expected.

If I mux those files with mkvtoolnix I end up with an mkv file where both the thd and the ac3 audio are in sync all the way through, but the subs are out of sync (which we have established aerlier and fixed in dgindexnv).

If I open the files in mediainfo, it only shows the thd file and one ac3 file for each of the muxed mkv files.

The source is more than 65 GB. It has been decrypted with makemkv to be able to get files that I can work with. Otherwise I am not able to make a x265 compressed mkv for my home system.

If I can help in any way to figure out whats going on just let me know.

If this is out of the scope of dgindexnv, because I am using decryppted data from a disk I have bought, then just delete the message.
I don't have 65 GB of space on my home system to store each 4k movie though, so I have to make them smaller.

I am using degdec 186.

Can you please give me a link to purchase the exact same disk you have? Will I need a UHD capable drive to rip it with MAKEMKV?

Hi.

I bought it from amazon.com.

https://www.amazon.com/CARS-Blu-ray-Lar ... 223&sr=8-1

It has English Dolby Atmos and Spanish Dolby Digital Plus audio tracks.

To decrypt it you need a UHD "friendly" drive. I bought mine long ago, so haven't really followed which ones are "friendly" now.
But I can look at makemkv forum and see if I can figure out which one would suffice.

Thank you very much for looking into it.

Sorry to hear that drive didn't work.

Hopefully the next one will work.

If not, I will take up your offer to provide the stream. I need to have UHD capability in house.

Replacement disk is in hand. I'll install it tonight and try to rip it.

Sounds great.

Hope you get the same result as I did, so we can get it sorted :-)

Drive seems to be working. Please tell me in detail how to rip it and then reproduce your issue. I'm guessing AnyDVD. If so I'll have to get that as well. I've been meaning to get AnyDVD in any case but the bitcoin nonsense was an obstacle. They have a 21 day trial so that may be enough.
