MAKEMKVCON(1)		FreeBSD	General	Commands Manual		 MAKEMKVCON(1)

NAME
     makemkvcon	-- read	video from DVD or Bluray disc and convert to mkv for-
     mat

SYNOPSIS
     makemkvcon	[--minlength=seconds] info source_spec
     makemkvcon	[--minlength=seconds] mkv source_spec title_spec
		target_directory

DESCRIPTION
     The makemkvcon utility shows information about a video disc in an optical
     drive, the	mkv subcommand also converts selected titles from the disc to
     .mkv files	in a given location.

     The arguments are as follows:

     --minlength=seconds
	     Only consider video titles	with a minimal length of seconds. If
	     you use the mkv subcommand	after the info subcommand, make	sure
	     to	pass the same value for	seconds, as filtering out titles with
	     a smaller length happens before numbering the titles.

     source_spec
	     Read video	disc from the given source.  Use "disc:0" here to have
	     makemkvcon	read from the first video disc it can find.

     title_spec
	     Determines	which titles to	read.  This can	be either a whole num-
	     ber from 0	to n-1 for a disc with n titles	to read	exactly	one
	     title, or the string "all"	to read	all titles found.

     target_directory
	     The path where to store the converted .mkv	files.

FILES
     ~/.MakeMKV/settings.conf
	     You may put a license key in this file in the following format:
		   app_Key = "XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX..."
	     You can either buy	a license or use the key, that is freely
	     available as long as MakeMKV is in	beta from
	     https://www.makemkv.com/forum/

EXAMPLES
	   % makemkvcon	mkv disc:0 0 .

     This command reads	the first title	from the first disc it can find	and
     stores a converted	.mkv file in the current directory.

SEE ALSO
     This manpage only describes the most commonly used	options.  A more com-
     plete documentation is available online at
     https://www.makemkv.com/developers/usage.txt

     For some examples what you	can put	in your	configuration file, see

BUGS
     On	FreeBSD, makemkvcon crashes with a signal 11 (segmentation fault) af-
     ter finishing its job.  Be	aware this might leave a .core file on your
     file system.

KNOWN ISSUES
     To	find optical drives, makemkvcon	uses some entries from Linux' sysfs
     that aren't present on FreeBSD.  A	script `update-makemkv-drives` is in-
     cluded to fake these entries and is run automatically on installation.
     If	your system's configuration changes, you must run this script as root
     manually, so new or changed drives	can be found.
