Anyway to have MakeMKV auto select the correct main title?

I have my dad using MakeMKV/Handbrake for his AppleTV conversions. We are doing near lossless rips of BD-Roms and DVDs. Storage is not an issue for him. He does NOT have a Mac (yet), however all of his mobile devices and HT setup is Apple based (iPad2, iPhone 4S and AppleTV). The main problem he is finding is how to select the right title in MakeMKV. Too many times he will select the wrong title and wast 2+ hours of conversions.

Is there any way to have MakeMKV select the right title for your region? I know DVDFab does this and he is very close to making the switch. Before he goes drastic swapping programs and needing a new work flow, I wondered if MakeMKV can do the same.

Thanks!

First set it up to only search for your language tracks. Second, I have it set to discard any track smaller than 3600 seconds. Finally, if you have more than 1 track after ripping, play the mkv in vlc and note what track it plays. When you load it into HB, select the track # you noted from vlc.

Video (pull-down)>Video Track

If there are multiple tracks, look for the one that is checked. It will accurately reflect the track # in the HB menu.

Yup, VLC is your friend. Check Audio tracks, subtitle tracks, and like mic j said, video tracks. I always double check my rips.

So are you saying you use MakeMKV and rip ALL titles of the larger size? So if there are essentially 3 titles that could be the main movie, you rip all 3 then verify the correct title in VLC?
