No Sync File?
« on: September 28, 2011, 01:39:39 AM »
No Sync file was downloaded. Could someone please confirm whether Thor is one of the "junk data" DVDs:

Q: Are there any DVDs that just won't play?
Yes, unfortunately. As of this writing (March 31, 2011), the following discs are not yet playable by the Riffplayer:  Casino Royale, Last Airbender, The Dark Knight, Star Trek (2009).

Some DVD copy protection uses "junk data" that makes it hard for our player to play the DVD.

I don't mind playing it manually. I just must know the truth! No one's talking about this. Usually there are very vocal freakouts by now.

So, I'd appreciate a confirmation of some sort. Is the Riffplayer incompatible with Thor (like other more recent Paramount DVDs), or is there a Sync file in the works, or did Loki snatch my Sync file as a nasty little prank?


Doctor Who?

This is a junk data situation, we're working on a solution, but for the foreseeable future there won't be a sync file for this one.
Any issues with the RiffTrax main page should be directed to support@rifftrax.com Attempts to engage with me directly about such matters will result in ridicule.

Do any of the copy programs work on the DVD?  If you can make your own DVD of the movie without the junk data then you can make your own sync file for it, but everyone would have to make their own sync file since the values would change depending on how the movie was ripped and re-written.  I've done it for a few of the discs I have that don't play in the player.

I ordered the 3D set, was hoping the DVD in there would work, I guess I'll be using the mp3 player method, hope the Blu-Ray 3D version is the same as the DVD.

Thanks, Thrash. In the future, would you folks be able to make a note of this somewhere? I looked all over the place before making these inquiries.
The product page, the announcement board, the coming soon board, the technical difficulties board, the Riffplayer board, the Readme file. I'm just saying: it's preferable to know about these things beforehand rather than mounting a solo investigation. Especially when you're the first one to discover it, and no one else is talking about it. It makes you paranoid! Kind of like....


"HE'S THE ONLY ONE WHO'S SPOTTED THE SYNC ISSUE!"

Okay, slight exaggeration.  ;)
