MakeMKV beta 1.7.8
« on: October 15, 2012, 10:13:40 PM »
MakeMKV beta 1.7.8 What makes this release different is that it has a means to encode the .mkv using ffmpeg.  In Preferences General Tab if you enable Expert Mode, then an Advanced Tab appears. You may select WDTV profile.  Seems it requires you to set the path to ffmpeg on your system.

Change log

I haven't tried the WDTV profile mechanism yet.

I've been using makemkv for everything and just saying I'll buy more space after my initial problems with encoding.  I might try this though- if I can keep two copies of everything for backup purposes, I'll be happier than just cherry picking my backups.

Looks like it needs a Corel dll for DTS processing. Oh well. I'm not so enhused for long encoding jobs anymore anyway. I usually take the easy way out with an app that processes the audio and just remuxes.

Let me know how it seems if you try the compression.

Thank you for your sharing ;D

You're welcome. I bought MakeMKV Feb. 2010. Glad I'm getting my money's worth. :)

It seems FFMpeg is used for audio conversion such as flac pcm or wav output. Looks like this release of MakeMKV doesn't get into video compression.  Also 1.7.8 includes 32 and 64 bit versions of FFMpeg. Sorry I gave the wrong info.  I just surmised by looking at the settings dialog(always dangerous.)  :)

For video compression it looks like BDRB or some other is still required.

It does have profiles for controlling things such as audio output, stuff to do with subtitles like forced,default etc..  setting an audio track as default yadda yadda.

There's a subforum on the MakeMKV forum for advanced usage.  What profile settings are available and how to use etc..
