With upcoming changes to data protection and privacy laws in Europe coming into effect soon, we thought this would be a good time to remind everyone that we do have a privacy policy.
This applies to all users and visitors world-wide.

We have made a few changes to the language to make it clearer in relation to this new regulation but fundamentally, the terms and your rights are unchanged.

Blu-Ray No Valid Source Found

Post by BaturalNoobs » Mon Jan 02, 2017 6:00 pm

I'm unable to find a valid source on a Blu-Ray. For this example I'm using Disney's Cars. Steps to reproduce:

- Open Handbrake
- Click Source
- Click the Blu-ray (appears as CARS_USA)
- Click Open
- I get the error message "No Valid Source Found"

I've tried clicking on multiple files inside the Blu-ray including:

- BDMV
- BDMV/index.bdmv
- BDMV/MovieObject.bdmv
- BDMV/PLAYLIST/00001.mpls
- BDMV/STREAM/0011.m2ts

After each of these I also get the "No Valid Source Found" error.

How can I select a valid source?

P.S. I'm running:
- macOS 10.12.3
- Handbrake 1.0.1
- MakeMKV 1.10.4 with license
- MakeMKV's libaacs.dylib and libbdplus.dylib symlinked to ~/lib

Run it though MakeMKV first. We don't support any attempt to use 3rd party libraries with HandBrake as more often than not, people run into problems and they don't work right.
