Then I have another one: in the menu Options > Functions > DVD-TEXT General Name and then click Maximum length of the General Name field. In this dialog default is spelled defallt. It's like what Garambone said:

Thanks for the update r0lZ.

I've just updated the linux version to 8.4 from 8.21 and have noticed a difference in behaviour from previous versions... when opening a DVD there's a moderate delay before it begins parsing the DVD, and more noticeably when closing PgcEdit, it sits around for about 4 or 5 seconds doing nothing before it eventually closes, whereas normally it would close immediately.

I was just wondering if there have been some changes to the linux version that could be the reason for this? (and also curious if anyone else has seen the same behaviour?)

One thing I've noticed is previous versions would create a preview.args.ini file in the tmp directory, but it appears 8.4 doesn't do that any more. (I don't know if that means anything though.)

Anyway, it's not really a problem just odd.

The new function that checks for an update can take some time to complete when PgcEdit starts, especially when you are not connected to the internet. You can turn this option off, and check for updates manually.

I have no idea of the cause of the delay when PgcEdit is closed, but I have also noticed it under Linux. No problem under Windoze.

The temp files are still saved on disc, but most of them are now deleted after use. That might be related to the pause when PgcEdit is closed. I will verify...

Hi:

Thanks for the dedication.

Does PgcEdit checks for PGC's mismatching the VTSM_C_ADT references, e.g in VobBlanker.

No. PgcEdit doesn't parse the VOB files (except to read the menu buttons and BOVs but that's another story.) You can even use PgcEdit on the IFOs only, without the VOBs. Therefore, PgcEdit trust the IFOs.
But you can use FixVTS (that can be launched easily from the PgcEdit's Tools menu) to fix the bad references in the IFOs.

I'm glad you've noticed the same thing and you know what I mean, because I haven't had much experience with the Linux version and it seemed odd to me.

Thanks. It does seem like it's trying to do something when you close it, for those few seconds, so I guess it's not anything to be concerned about for now?

Btw, check for new versions at startup was turned off.

A small aside... I noticed a while back you were planning to rewrite the burn function and add support for growisofs, but since ImgBurn was released I haven't seen any more talk about that. I was just curious if that idea is completely dead in the water now or you might revisit it sometime in the future?

No, sorry, I do not want to continue developing the burn function. As you said, ImgBurn can be used under Win, and I have added the button to interrupt the DL burn process immediately after the patching of the IFOs, with the layer break sector number in the clipboard. It should be easy to launch grawisofs manually.

And yes, IMO, the pauses are probably normal, although I haven't verified that yet. Will do it right now...

Bizarre. I don't have the pauses any more. But I have recently installed the latest version of Ubuntu from scratch. Maybe there is something wrong with older/other distros?
Which distro do you use?

I have also noticed another problem under Linux. In trace mode, when the preview displays a cell, the "Close and Break" button and the "Blank this cell" option do not work. Seems the file that should normally be created by PgcEdit_preview.exe in /tmp is not created. Maybe it's a permission problem related to wine.
Do you have the same problem?

Yep, the preview.args.ini (or something like that?), it's the file I meant above I noticed isn't created in the /tmp dir any more.

I'll check if those buttons work or not soon and let you know...

The "Close and Break" button doesn't break, it continues to run, and the "Blank this cell" option appears to be ignored.

The pauses seem less this time than before, but still there. After starting it twice and using trace mode each time I can see there are 2 'pgcedit_preview_xxxx.log' files leftover in /tmp with the program closed.

Hope some of this helps...

Bug in tracemode?

A simple scenario, one VTS, one Title, 2 PGCs.
PGC 1 contains 1 PTT, 1 PG, 3 cells, PGC 2 contains 1 PTT (PTT 2), 1 PG 2 cells.
No post commands in each PGC. NextPGCN link is set to "2" for PGC 1 and to "1" for PGC 2.
After playing back PGC 1 Tracer stops

Code:
DVD inserted: Resetting all GPRMs to 0.
DVD inserted: Initializing the SPRMs to default/setup values.
------> Entering VMG , First-Play PGC 
  -- pre 1 : (JumpTT) Jump to Title 1
	-> sprm(4:Title number in volume) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(5:Title number in VTS) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(6:PGC number) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(7:Chapter number (or PGN)) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(14:Video preference and current mode) = 0 (0x0000)
------> Entering VTST 1 , 1   TTN 1  (0:32)  Title 1
        PUOs: 1 (0x00000001)
******* Start playback VTST 1 , 1   TTN 1  (0:32)  Title 1...
******* Playing Program 1, Cell 1 (0:10.23) (Chapter 1)
	-> sprm(7:Chapter number (or PGN)) = 1 (0x0001)
******* Playing Program 1, Cell 2 (0:10.23) (Chapter 1)
	-> sprm(7:Chapter number (or PGN)) = 1 (0x0001)
******* Playing Program 1, Cell 3 (0:10.23) (Chapter 1)
	-> sprm(7:Chapter number (or PGN)) = 1 (0x0001)
******* End playback of PGC 1.
        End of post commands: Jumping to NextPGCN 2
	-> sprm(4:Title number in volume) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(5:Title number in VTS) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(6:PGC number) = 2 (0x0002)
	-> sprm(7:Chapter number (or PGN)) = 1 (0x0001)
	-> sprm(14:Video preference and current mode) = 0 (0x0000)
####### Target not found!
------> End of post commands: Exiting!  DVD Playback end!

Hum, yes, seems it's a bug. I will try that here...
Thanks for the report.

on the 'Audio Stream type' panel measurements 'bps' for quantization and 'Ksps' for sampling rate are used.
could it be changed to the more standard 'bit' for quantization and 'kHz' to sampling rate, to make it less confusing?

thank you.

Well, I'm not sure they are the same things. Honestly, I'm not a specialist, and I have taken those units from the mpucoder's DVD Information site. And I trust him!

IMO, anyway, Khz should be used only to represent the frequency of the sound, and not its sampling rate, which is a totally different thing. As far as I know, all sampling rate are always expressed in samples per second.

But, of course, if it is proved that I am wrong, I will change that. Any info is welcome. Mpucoder, are you here?

[EDIT] I have already replied almost the same thing to an user from Germany. Maybe in Germany and Hungary, the habits are not the same than in the rest of the world?

If it is designated as sampling rate Ksps should be correct (numbers of samples per time unit)
Sampling frequency is deprecated synonym for sampling rate
