    I have met the same trouble with you. Reading the whole post, I just want to catch answers about how to fix that trouble. Thanks for your post and all comments.

      Just tried to rip my first DVD: Sword in the Stone, Disney movie. It is quite simple to figure out the steps to start the rip, however, the program seems to only download half of the movie before finishing the conversion. No matter the setting I change, out of a hour and a half movie it only completes 37 minutes.
      I finally worked out with another program with the guide here:
      If you are looking for a more straight-forward way to rip Bluray DVD directly to MP4 AVI WMV and even 3D formats like 3D MKV and 3D MP4, I’d like to recommend an awesome MakeMKV and Handbrake alternative for you-Leawo Bluray Ripper.

        Any progress on fixing the dvd info API? I'm quite keen to get the automatic disc renaming working for DVD / Bluray ripping.
        If any one has any information on how the endpoint was identifying the discs and where it was getting data from I'm happy to contribute.
        Is there a public git repo for the server side or is it proprietary?

          I just finished the upgrade to Vortexbox 2.5 BETA with Fedora 25. A number of things were updated including LMS and PLEX, but not MakeMKV.

          It appears that MAKEMKV is still at v10.x. (I was able to update to the older v12.3, but updating to the current v14.x does not appear to work)

          Unfortunately, the trick of commenting out the www links that go to the API does not work any longer. Here's what I get:
