I apologise in advance if I've missed something but when I use the seek option to set start and end points, many details in the "Information" panel disappears: -

Not possible. The DOS shell interprets them as redirection.
Oh OK, how about one of the others: \ / : * ? |

Actually, the [ and ] may be totally superfluous anyway. I'll look into it.
I hope so, I know it probably sounds quite trivial but it is quite important to me.

Well there must be something... Or drop the "[" and "]" altogether, how about "{" and "}"?

@INFO-DVD - I have already answered this question for you in the Development thread! Let me quote:
Quote:
Your only option would be to use the -BF([filelist]) option. I just tested it with [ ] in filenames and it does work fine.
As other people here have said, the characters you mention are illegal because they are used as functional characters.

Changing them to a { } doen't solve the problem. Then someone using {} will complain. There is only ONE possibility:

Don, would it be possible to use quotes " to delimit the file name, since thats what DOS uses also?

yes I read your quote though that's hardly ideal, I didn't want to mess about making/using yet another batch/list of files......

I wonder why the "[" and "]" were used in the first place by DVD2AVI in the CLI? Like you say, you'd think it would be just the 'normal' name in quotes....

At first page www.doom9.org wrote "DGMPGDec 1.40 RC4 fixes a problem opening files across the network. It also contains rudimentary playback speed control." Is it misprint?

typo, doom9 ment rc3
Quote:
1.4.0 Release Candidate 3
Version 1.4.0 RC 3 fixes the problem with opening across the network, as reported by bbouchaib2002. I also added a rudimentary playback speed control, for people with very fast machines and who don't like watching their previews race by at 170 fps.

The information panel is fully populated only during a preview operation.

With the current architecture there's no way to tell you the frame number corresponding to a trackbar position.

What is it exactly that you are trying to achieve and why?

Actually, even quotes are not needed, because the string is adequately delimited by the = and the following space, comma, or EOL. So, I made a version that accepts the syntax with or without the [] delimiters. I want to test it a bit better before letting you have it.

I've been using DGIndex for cutting out clips of Mpeg2 video (and audio), directly from DVD sources (ie: no ripping to the HDD first).

For future disc examination purposes I like to make notes on the DVD's inlay card, where the start and end frames are for each clip.

Also, after compiling a quantity of clips (in their elementary stream form) I can calculate where the start and end frame points are for each clip and create a text file which I can load into MuxMan.... granted, there are other ways I can obtain the frame information... I just thought it may be useful.

As a test, yesterday, I did made DVB-T capture from a music video channel. I was able to use DGIndex to cut out several music video's of interest. And after re-syncing the audio I used MuxMan to create an 4GB DVD with chapter points for each music video.


Cheers

Oops, Cyberia reminded me that a space can be part of a filename or path, so my approach won't work. I'll see if I can get quotes working.

We can't use quotes, because the DOS shell strips them. We could escape them by doing \" but that's silly.

I'm going to add a new option -SD for Set Delimiter.

Then you can do:

-SD=! -IF=!file1.vob,file2.vob! -OF=!clip!

The default will be [ and ] for backward compatibility.

Don't you realize that charachters '[' and ']' can too be part of a filename ?

Hm, RC3 seems to crash on this VOB.





An old DGIndex version I still have on my HD doesn't seem to have a problem with it:

Please upload the first part of the VOB to my FTP server and tell me the filename here. You can put up to several hundred MBytes, or only as much as is needed to show the problem, i.e., working in 1.0.12 but not in 1.4.0. Thank you.

In progress. Thanks for always promptly reacting to stuff like that.

Edit: Ah, filename: kumonomukou.vob

I hope you don't mind that it is almost 1 GB (889 MB). But I only know how to get parts from a VOB with MPEG2Cut; and that 'repairs' the file as a result. Just close the connection if you think it better.

Edit: Just got '550 Can't check for file existence' and transfer starts anew. Pure-FTPd is not always fun, is it?

Edit: OK, several times the same error; aborting.
