    When using CloneBD to extract just one (main) title from a DB movie with no reeconding/compression, is it possible to extract just the movie title with no menu at all? I know there is the option to automatically play the main title but still have a menu. Want to know if there is a way to just have the main title and no menu?

    Did you look at the tutorial here?

    https://forum.redfox.bz/threads/how...-bd-25-with-clonebd-menu-using-clonebd.70554/

    I would say that if you deselect keep original menu. And select directly play main title then it should in theory have no menu. Also make sure you are not using speedmenu in AnyDVDHD to eliminate that being added.
    Then I would test by outputting to ISO and then mount and play with PDVD or similar.
    Then if it creates desired results you can then burn that to disc.
    PS.
    The only way to learn how to use something is to actually use it. And as long as your not burning to a non RW then the only thing used/wasted is the time and HDD space.

    Thanks for the ideas nebostrangla -- yes I have read the tutorial and experimented multiple times with several different combinations of settings including that one; while deselecting maintain original menu" and selecting "directly play main title" does cause the movie to start playing right away and initially bypass the menu, a simple CloneBD menu is still included in the resulting BluRay structure so if I press STOP or MENU during playback it takes you to the menu rather than exiting the disc completely. This is actually consistent with what the help bubble for "direct play main title" which says ("the menu can still be accessed"). I don't want any menus at all and hoping there is somewhere a setting for that (speedmenu is disabled in AnyDVDHD as well)

    Then it may be part of the Blu-ray standard that cloneBD is trying to maintain. Unlike some other Blu-ray copy programs. Maybe @Pete , @Fabian Steiner ,or @Reto can say for sure. And if it is/will ever be possible to do.
    However I will say most users want to use the menu and can't do to playback service they use and not get rid of it.

    Fair comments and agree it is possible other software may be violating BluRay standards. I'm using Dune media player with video wall software installed on it so my personal preference is to just play the movie once I select it. I suppose I could go really non-standard and just go with the .M2TS file and ditch the rest of the BD structure. I don't think I need anything else from the BluRay folder structure if I just want the movie.

    Does the "play main title" not do that for you. You could also look into doing lossless audio/video MKV'S. Guaranteed no menus only the content converted. And cloneBD has gotten a lot better in that area too! And if you have audio codec issues you can make them DTS or ac3 which is actually DD 5.1 .
    If you have cloneBD try it out it's listed under the mobile tab.

    The "play main title" does work BUT if you hit STOP or MENU or when the movie gets to the end, it goes to the menu added by CloneBD when I would prefer it go directly back to the movie info screen in the DUNE application. I assume anyone else using the DUNE with a video wall would want the same if they are going with movie only. The last time I tried MKV was several years back there was some kind of issue -- I can't remember but thought it was something about them not supporting HD audio at that time. I really want the full DTS MA or Dolby TrueHD rather than plain DTS or ac3 -- in my theater lossy movie sound is akin to MP3 vs FLAC for music -- the HD audio sounds way better. Anyway, I gather the MKV format has advanced since then so maybe it's time to give it another try especially since CloneBD supports including for lossless extracts. Single container files could be little easier to manage than full BD structure on the server too.

    The down side of just playing back the M2TS file is no chapter markers as the chapter markers are not contained in the M2TS file itself

    If you just want just the movie itself why didn't you use Anydvd HD options "Rip Video Disk to HardDisk" that will just get the movie.

    Because the main movie isn't always just 1 file so you would have to work out which is the correct playlist and then work out how to get the player to see that playlist on it's own with the rest of the structure removed

    No it won't. Rip Video Disk to hard disk will rip the entire movie just like the ISO ripper will. The only difference is that it will be a file structure where otherwise it would be an ISO. The AnyDVD ripper CANNOT rip "just the movie", it rips the entire disc. And that's disregarding the fact that not every movie comes in 1 big m2ts file, usually it's seamless transition ones.
