    Ripping from Amazon Video

    Sounds like someone who claims to have purchased it on there is saying its an OLD tool. The last post is an image file containing the download link, but its already dead so no way to confirm. Most likely just another scammer.

    Should Energy Drinks be banned

    I stopped drinking Energy Drinks after seeing how badly they can damage your teeth by softening the enamel during consumption. However I still need my Caffeine fix so I drink Green and Black Tea (which just stains them instead, lol). Now should they actually be "Banned" or not, IDK. Personally I would like to see all "Artificial" ingredients removed from food products. So take out all the Artificial Colors, Flavors, Sweeteners etc, and if you can still make the product without them then be my guest.

    Ripping from Amazon Video

    And yet, YOU are one of the most active people in this thread. In fact, every single one of your 56 total posts have been in this thread talking about ripping from Amazon. Do you even visit any other part of this forum? I think @EccentricOne was right about you.

    Is x265 encoding worth it?

    In my opinion the only real benefit to H265 is HDR. The UltraHD Blurays look good, but I do not see the same results from h265 encodes (or should I say Transcodes) I have seen online. It also takes a ridiculous amount of time to Transcode, so I hope you have a newer High end processor. I tried it twice now myself, and both times it took nearly a whole day to finish transcoding a short video. Personally I am more interested in the new Open Source Codecs being worked on, "AV1" is the main one, and I just read about another one recently called "xvc".

    NETFLIX DL (source) ?

    There is a person on another forum, going by the username "Mark Baker", who claims to be the developer of the newer FlixGrab+. Here is a quote from the user: To be honest, I am the father of both applications. The freegrabapp command stole my code and is now using it. I always wanted to create a good software for users. I created flixgrab, and posted it on the site of my friends. When people began to buy the application, the old team stole the code and continued to sell. I wanted to apply the policy that if the user checked all the necessary functionality and he likes it, then he can buy a subscription and support the development team. If the user finds errors, then we fix and release the new version. guys who sell simple flixgrab have another point of view. Maybe you noticed that we solve problems faster when Netflix changes something. And we try to understand the user's problem. Because in each country Netflix works specifically. Now flixgrab and flixgrab + differences are minimal, the last flixgrab + better handles network errors and netflix errors.

    Ripping from Amazon Video

    I am having the same problem as @EccentricOne. Setup everything as per the instructions. Using the Portable version of Chrome 55.0.2883.87. The 64bit version tells me that there is a problem with widevine and it needs to updated, so it never plays the video. Just shows the error page instead. The 32bit version does the same thing but also crashes widevine in the browser and I get a Microsoft error popup relating to widevinecdmadapter.dll

    Thanks a lot for those instructions @CMOS . Just confirmed it does work with the Bluray MENU as well.

    4k HDR encode/playback on 1080p display

    I am having a similar problem. I usually encode Bluray movies, but wanted to try UltraHD Blurays as well. However when playing them on my 1080p Computer Monitor, there is a Blue/Grey tint or Filter look to the entire video. I am guessing this is because of HDR. I originally tried playing the UltraHD Bluray .m2ts file in Media Player Classic, and it had the blue/grey filter look. However then I tried the new version of VLC player (since it claims to be compatible with HDR) and the video looked better. However when I try to encode the UltraHD Bluray (which of course is h265 HEVC) to x264 (and downscale to 1080p) and encode has that blue/grey filter look no matter what video player I use. It sounds like that is because the UltraHD Bluray has HDR and needs to be converted to SDR during the encoding process. Is that right? @wizisi2k you mentioned being able to use a filter during encoding to try and achieve this. I found reference to another AviSynth filter that claims to be able to help with that as well called "DGTonemap Filter" which can be found here: http://rationalqm.us/mine.html While I do encode using MeGUI, I have never actually added or used any additional filters, so I am not sure how to do it. It looks like you also have to use a different version of Avisynth as well, as apposed to the version that comes with MeGUI. The site specifies v2.5, but the documentation that comes with the filter claims you need the Multi-Threaded version "Avisynth+ MT". Again, not sure how to install a different version of Avisynth so that MeGUI will know to use it instead. BTW .... here are some screenshots showing the blue/grey filter look I am talking about: Example 1: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/114853 Example 2: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/114854 I have recently seen some torrents for 2160p SDR encodes, so apparently some people have figured out how to solve this problem.

    Heath issues due to wifi signals

    People are asking those same questions again now that 5G Wireless for phones is up and coming. While it might all be harmless, who knows if there could realistically be any long term effects.
  13. I was very surprised to hear this, since Smallville used to be a favorite show of mine. Obviously, as fans, we really only know the Character they play and not the Actor/Actress themselves, but I was still rather shocked by the news. Saw a mention of it on TV the other night and I was like "WTF ....... rewind". Honestly if its true, then its a real shame.

    Need help with Blu-ray viewing/ripping

    +1 for using AnyDVD for decryption. It is constantly updated for new Bluray movies, and can even do SOME 4K UHD Bluray Discs as well. (Since its looks like your drive can do UHD Discs) ArcSoft Total Media Theater is one of the Very Few Players can that play the Full Bluray with Menu Support (just FYI) Simply using MKVToolNix on the corresponding .m2ts or .mpls file will result in a REMUX in a mkv container.
