Also, as per your post after this one, I played the resultant Blu-ray after I re-inserted the shrunk m2ts file back into the original BD structure (37 Gigs) and then processed the entire structure with BDRB to render a final BD25 disc that played just fine.
Like I said, you DID NOT burn and play the BD structure (37GB) after reinserting the modified M2TS file. I'm saying that I expect that disc not to play the file you replaced. You only played the BD structure that BDRB put together. Apples and oranges.

Oh, I see... Yeah, I didn't understand what you meant. But, that's kind of what I explained when I said that AFTER BDRB rebuilt the whole disc THEN it played okay, which is was counted. No... I think you are probably quite right; that you cannot just drop in a random replacement m2ts out of the air and have it play properly. I see now what other files you meant (clipinfo & mpls) I forgot about those also accompanying the m2ts file.

Is there a way to use separate "threads" values depending on whether you're using Multiprocess?

Example:
Threads=1 for Multiprocess=12
Threads=15 for Multiprocess=0

If BD-RB reencodes it, the other files associated with it (MPLS, CLPI, etc) are modified to match the reencode. But if you drop in another M2TS file -- how is BD-RB supposed to know you did that and prepare those files? The new M2TS file would be included in the rebuild, of course, but it likely wouldn't match it's corresponding CLPI, and the MPLS wouldn't be updated with the changes.

You can manually set THREADS to any value you want using the TWEAK_PASS_ONE and TWEAK_PASS_TWO hidden options.

And this begs the question, why have you not went retail with this software? I know I will piss off many in this thread and those who've come to rely on your software wholeheartedly and as a backup. I'm just curious why you think it's not ready for primetime?

Because I can tell you now, I can run down an almost endless list of big name companies who make software with FAR MORE bugs than I've seen in this thread!
Thanks for the kind words. I guess money was never the driver for BD-RB's development. I accepted donations for a while -- but that was more than spent in purchases of discs for testing and occasional hardware upgrades. PayPal gave me the heave-ho because they couldn't tell the difference between my software and a ripper (giving me the distinct impression that PayPal doesn't hire the sharpest analysts). So that pretty much ended even the donations. I then decided I'd start accepting Amazon gift cards (since Amazon is where I bought most of my discs). But that dried up quickly -- with the last gift card coming in back in Jan or Feb. So, I guess the point is that it's more a labor of love than anything profitable.

As for the beta status... I think I'm trying to set a record, though I don't know that Guinness has a category for "software beta"

I appreciate the thought.

It would have to go to dvd-rb@jdobbs.net. If you click on HELP/Donations in BD-RB it will take you to the site. Unfortunately donations from a non-US Amazon site can only be used there -- and they don't seem to ship to the US. It's no big deal -- I hope I didn't appear to be begging for donations in my last post.

Not at all. When it was possible to donate by paypal, it was very easy for me. I think such a grat job in developing this software must be suppurted by periodical donations!

Ah, OK. So, I'm guessing that Lathe's manually resized M2TS file got re-encoded by BDRB, so that the other files would have gotten rebuilt, otherwise I would have expected that extra to not have played.

I swear, we ALL must be the most thankless, ungrateful, lazy-@ss P\/ssy B@stards of all time! I think time just goes by and we get forgetful. NO excuse though...

I wish that you'd just put the damn thing on a $5.95 / month subscription. And, if ANY sniveling, whiny B@stards complain, just send their information to Mr. Video. I mean, WHO the hell can't afford that no matter what their weasly little preferences. Just do it man. And, the ones who really don't want to do a monthly, just charge them a one time fee of 59.95 and send them a specific key.

That way, it guarantees at least SOME regular income each month for you which is the very, Very, VERY least that you deserve.

(and, if I don't get the Kiss-@ss award of the year, I don't know who will...)

This works in general but still limits to a single thread value.

During a full backup using multiprocess, some files are too small to multiprocess. If I have threads set at 1 because I use multiprocess=12, these smaller files take way longer to encode than they should because they're also stuck with a single thread.
