    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

    Need help with Blu-ray viewing/ripping

    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.
  5. 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.

    Ripping Nick.com Videos?

    The last time I tried ripping from nick, the best quality I could get was 720p. Is that still the case, or is it possible to grab 1080p?

    Purchase Mega Account with Prepaid Gift Card?

    I was just having this conversation with someone earlier today. Different websites go through different amounts of verification for purchases with credit cards. Some just confirm the card number is valid with enough balance available, others will accept your Vanilla Gift Card and only verify the zip code you registered it with, then there are the ones that want to verify your complete name, address, phone number, the whole works. I believe you can register a full name and address with a pre-paid Mastercard and also with the prepaid VISA that Walmart sells. Prepaid AMEX wont let you register anything, and as I said the Vanilla Visa only allows a zip code. You can obviously register those pre-paid cards using FAKE info if you want to. As long as the info matches up, nobody is the wiser. If you ever do a Mail-in-Rebate, they usually send you a pre-paid card with your info assigned to the card already. Those pass even the strictest of security checks. Hope that helps.

    Camp Candy

    I would be interested in seeing this series again as well. You should create a thread in the "REQUESTS" section for this @Shaggydomer .
  11. While I dont like the idea of having another service you have to pay extra for, as apposed to simply airing the content on their current cable channel, I am excited that they are going to create new Looney Tunes cartoons.

    Glad to hear its being renewed. I enjoy it, as well as pretty much any post apocalyptic TV Show or Movie.

    Capcom Reveals 'Resident Evil 7' and a trailer

    Its about time they officially announced the game. Been looking forward to it. Although the trailer looks more like a generic horror game as apposed to a Resident Evil game. They are supposed to be working on a RE2 Remake as well, which I feel was the best game in the series.
