Non-Consecutive Chapter Selection?

Post by Kavar » Sun Nov 04, 2018 10:53 am

Description of problem or question:

I have a music (video) DVD that I want to rip. However, apart from the parts with music that interest me, there is a bunch of short talks and some other features that I don't need—that's why I'd like to rip individual chapters not in their sequence, e.g. 12, 21, 26. As far as I know, HandBrake only allows selecting chapters only in the consecutive order, without an option to leave out some stuff (so if I wanted to rip just the example chapters mentioned above, I'd have to rip all the chapters from 12 to 26 or rip them individually). Is there a way to select required chapters via, say, a tick list? Thanks.

Steps to reproduce the problem (If Applicable):


HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

macOS Mojave 10.14.1

No, your best bet is to rip your chapters with makemkv then join them together then convert with HB.
