magnetism Wrote:Ok, so when you type makemkvcon in the commandline it works. Hmmm, strange. I don't see anything wrong in the logs. It creates the right command to start stream an inserted blu ray disc.
there seams to be something wrong...
EDIT:// I think I found the problem I forgot to also install the makemkv_v1.6.3_oss.tar.gz. Doing it now.
EDIT2 :// Works now perfectly. Is there a possibility to make it faster? Less precaching?

No,at least not in xbmc . It makemkv that is slow cause it's parsing all items on the disc.

btw. will all the blurays work or are there any limitations?

You upgraded from the previous stable? If so, you'll need to install the new addon.

Tried to play my Avatar 3d iso and it loaded up to 100% then failed.
I am running the most current of the script and the most current version of makemkv.

Nothing in the logs that suggests failure. Can you try from the command line:
"makemkvcon" stream iso:/mnt/Movies0/AVATAR_3D.iso
let me know what the output is. If it seems to start the streams successfully, can you try to play them in xbmc then?
makemkv doesn't seem to be necessary - zoydberg - 2011-01-09 22:06
i only have 1 iso that wont play natively and its bluray. all i needed to do was mount the iso with the following command:
mount -o loop -t udf pathtobluray.iso /media/cdrom
i used /media/cdrom, but i think it could be any arbitrary mount point, just make sure the folder exists
then on xbmc just browse to the mount point(local or smb works), and find the largest m2ts file and it should play just fine without the use of makemkv.
optional: you can go one step further if you want to, copy the correct m2ts file to your video folder (noting the name), then delete the iso file. what your left with is a video file that xbmc will natively play without any headaches

yep ... I guess a iso without any drm protection can be played without any problem .-)
Insert a native bluray into the drive and this disc will not play.
