Has any member had any degree of success using this program to convert the main movie to .MKV, in conjunction with (NOT asking about standard DVDs) either HD-DVDs or BluRay discs (either directly from the original discs or from hard drive rips of your original discs)?

Presently, this appears to only be a partially successful standard DVD ripper/converter to MKV (Partially, because it's not able to deal with the most recent standard DVD releases), with no true BluRay/HD capability. At this stage, I'm speculating that nothing new will happen, if at all, until a "for pay" version with some true BluRay/HD functionality appears.

Oh well...

I apologize for the silence. While not updating information here, things do happen. Detection of "fake" titles was improved so wall-e and caspian can now be opened just fine. The failures with already decrypted discs were fixed, and today's update brings multi-angle DVD, latest AACS keys and proper VC-1 support. Again, I apologize - something happened with my notification settings so I assumed there was no activity in this topic.

Failed to decode audio/video data for title #0 - invalid mux or internal error, title skipped.":

Casino, Four Brothers, Ratlle & Hum, Harry Potter-Order of the Phoenix, Bourne Identity, Bourne Supremacy, King Kong, Last Samurai, Beowulf - and the list goes on.

Also as noted by "SvT", the titles that the program did manage to generate were SILENT versions of some trailers and some extras.

Additionally, for Beowulf, after generating all errors, it indicated "Unable to open disc".

Additionally, for Rattle & Hum (which momentarily made me optimistic), after generating "just a few" error messages (no sarcasm - just a few, compared to the other discs), the program indicated that it was about to generate a single 16.1Gb title. After about 20 seconds of apparently doing so, it terminated with "Unable to open disc".

The program was not able to generate the main title of any of the discs listed here (Not even a silent version). All discs were tested using beta versions 630, 634, and 650.

Please advise...
Well, Hd-Dvd support is poor. Currently the program can't open any of "HD" sound tracks from hd-dvds, and it can't process VC-1 streams without explicit frame reorder info (on Hd-DVDs). In short, it can convert a movie that has "old" AC3/DTS audio and MPEG2/MPEG4 video (and _sometimes_ VC-1) , but it can't convert E-AC3 to AC3 for example. So it is rahter limited with HD-DVDs, but HD-DVD is dead anyways. Making VC-1 work for HD-DVDs is not easy and there are better areas to spend resources (BD+ support for instance).

On the other hand it looks like it fails for the disc that has "regular" audo tracks, while it should work. King kong should work without any problems since I've tested it personally. Can you please download the latest version (1.2), enable "log debug messages" in settings, restart the program, try to open any non-VC1 disk and post the error log either here or via PM - that should provide some insight. Thanks!

Actually, from what I've read, there seems to be a fair-sized base of early adapters that own a large number of HD-DVDs and would love to have the ability to readily backup their discs - and since your program already contains the beginnings of such ability, why not complete that portion, knowing that once it's completed, it won't require further updating?

Perhaps you've checked a different HD-DVD version of "King Kong" personally. Mine yields the same old, "Can't process VC-1", "Failed to open disk" messages. here's the actual log:

@ Mike,

Can your program take other input besides a Disc ... for example a Folder or a file!?!?

Thanks,

G!

@gonwk

Have you examined the actual running program? Click on either the "File" dropdown menu, where you'll see an option to "Open files", or click on the "folder" icon.

BTW, if you read my most recent post to the new makeMKV-related thread in the Decrypting sub-forum, you'll see that in my last post, this has proven to be 100% UNsuccessful...
