I'm ripping some episodes of a show to MP4 but once done I cant seek through them correctly. Lets say I click and skip ahead 1 minute. The video stays black for several seconds before it starts to play again. I opened the file in Avidemux and I cant seek at all. When I try set a start or end marker, it won't even set one. I can't go to the next frame or anything.
I'm using DVDFab, ripping to MP4 H265 HEVC. The file seems to play and seek fine if I rip it to MKV instead.

Not all muxers/demuxers/players handle Open GOP in mp4 correctly. Try a better/up-to-date player (e.g. MPC-HC/LAV) and maybe a better muxing software. I recommend turnging off open-gop when targeting HEVC in mp4. (This is just my guess from the little info you have given.)

In handbrake, check the two boxes - Fast Decode, Web Optimized - I believe.
Can't find anything in DVDFab.
Usually, blank video, issues with ripped videos, etc. suggest there might be new decryption used that's preventing a proper rip.
In this case, Try MakeMKV to rip to MKV, and play that - does it play fine or not?
If not, new encryption method. Wait for program update.
If it plays fine, use DVDFab/Handbrake to encode the MKV to H.265 and call it a day.
