Re: Ripping blurays onto a diskdriveless iMac

A while back, I had to reformat old external hard drives from windows to mac to be able to transfer files so I didn't know exactly how that process would translate to the USB bluray. :| More than likely that was just a filesystem issue, since NTFS support on OS X/macOS has been either third-party-o...

Re: Ripping blurays onto a diskdriveless iMac

Well, it is at least possible to cut out the backup step. As long as you have the timecode information for whatever chapter it is in the corresponding playlist (mediainfo can do this if you know which playlist you need to query), you can have mpv convert it to [insert format here] straight from the ...

Re: Ripping blurays onto a diskdriveless iMac

True. After checking CDJapan, there's currently not very much anime that's been released in 4K yet anyway. Most of it looks like things either old enough to have been re-scanned from film, or new enough that it may have been produced in 4K. I'm still not working in 1080p, and a fair amount of anime...

Re: Ripping blurays onto a diskdriveless iMac

The two 4K discs I own had their keys added to the publicly available KEYDB.cfg to use with MakeMKV, and I have the BW-16D1HT. So that let me test it out; I couldn't find any immediate problem with the output, except that neither of my mini-PCs were able to keep up with decoding 10bit HEVC in 4K (m...

Re: Ripping blurays onto a diskdriveless iMac

I'm thinking DeUHD have already managed it (maybe; the distinction between 'UHD Friendly' or not was originally theirs), and DVD Fab apparently uses DeUHD's 4K support now. I'm not exactly sure how rigorous that support is, though. It's eventually a design goal for MakeMKV as stated on the forum the...

Re: Ripping blurays onto a diskdriveless iMac

Ripping UHD discs is currently trickier. You need a 'UHD Friendly' drive (read: pre-AACS2.0 drive that can still read BDXL media), and you also need the keys for the particular title you want to rip, at least as far as MakeMKV (or playback with libaacs and KEYDB.cfg through VLC or mpv) goes. Other r...

Re: VirtualDub won't import AviSynth

Don't use DGAVCDec. It's not even remotely up to date*, and was discontinued almost ten years ago (partially due to licensing conflicts over how it used FFmpeg's libs). FFMS2, LSMASHSource, or DGSource are your options today. *like FFMS2 and LSMASHSource, it used libavcodec to decode things. The dif...

Re: What's the last thing you bought yourself?

Not technically the last thing I've bought, but the most recent thing that arrived in the mail was a copy of Magikano Vol.3. I'd picked up the first two volumes years ago during one of RightStuf's clearance sales for $3 or $4 apiece, but the asking prices for new copies of Vol.3 at the time (and whi...

Re: What are you playing?

Since I bought a refurbished Wii U after Christmas, mostly switching among Metroid Prime Trilogy and Other M*, and Splatoon. I also bought Yoshi's Wooly World and New Super Mario Bros. U to go along with it for variety. Getting a Switch can wait for a while longer (despite already having preordered ...

Re: Audio sourcing

And the format you download it in isn't rights protected? There's no process you have to go through to start editing with it? Amazon uses MP3. MP3 can't be encrypted and still be playable by MP3 players. iTunes uses AAC. While the files were distributed with encryption at the beginning of the iTune...

It's interesting to see how this is determined in other places - is it just based on engine size or are there other conditions to determine whether one needs motorcycle-specific licensing?

Re: What's the last thing you bought yourself?

Inasmuch as a 50cc scooter counts, yeah. I've had my motorcycle license since February of last year, but I wanted to pace myself before getting anything larger. After I few months, I was (and after over a year now, am) more than ready to get something larger, but I don't have the money. Especially s...
