Hi,

hubblec4, thanks for very useful application.
Is it possible to adjust usage of "Use chapter names only" from // Chapter Database for OGM tabs as well?

Hi, thanks for all the updates!
One thing I want to ask is if you could please add an option to link certain predefined chapters names with a language so when using the "Chapter naming" function we can select the predefined chapter name and ChapterEditor would auto select the language we have set for such name, also please add one button to apply all three values (new name, country and language) and exit with just one click.

Hi darksen

I have no time at the moment, but I will add this to my TODO list. Please be patient.


@arestarh
I'm not sure if I can add your feature so easily, because there are only tabs for Matroska chapters, and it could be many work to do the same for the OGM tabs.
As a simplest solution: always the first OGM tab is used for change chapter names.

Hello hubblec4. Several months I've been burned out at home especially due to my Mom's condition (my own personal health issues are getting worse themselves), and lately I've been more frequent at Reddit, to interact with their Users, read their stories and problems ranging from many different topics/genres/fields/spheres/subcultures, provide my own experiences, possible solutions and workarounds, and to lessen some of my stress. One advantage of Reddit in my experience is the great chance of Users from other subreddits to find other subreddits (even Reddit results via Google search), thus more exposure and sharing of knowledge. I think joining Reddit is not-so-difficult. I remember a few years back when I tried to apply membership in Doom9 but... short story, I think I was only able to finally be accepted maybe after 3 years. I remember I still have my email (now archived) about my such application. Also lately, I found out there is an official MKVToolNix subreddit, probably still young itself. So maybe chapterEditor could have its own subreddit as well? Thanks and more power to cE.

Also, is the Linux support started with v1.18? Anyway, even though it is for the future I look at, I'm just glad for such Linux counterpart, since I may end up going to Linux after Windows 7 is finally retired. Of course I would hold on to Win 7 as long as I could just like what I did for Windows XP back then, where I still used it even after Vista and Win 7 already long superseded it.

Yeah, I only started it about a year ago. Back in the day I had my own forum for MKVToolNix. But users don't really want to have to register in too many forums, and I didn't want to have to maintain even more infrastructure than I already do. That's why I shut down the forum. For a while I always referred people to Doom9's forum, but this isn't the right place for most average users either. Reddit, even though hated by a lot of people, spots a rather large population (meaning it's likely users wanting to communicate about MKVToolNix already have an account there), it's easy to register if you don't have one, and the topics there can span the whole range of MKVToolNix-related issues. It's also rather easy to find stuff there with as many threads as desired compared to Doom9's forum with its one-thread-for-MKVToolNix approach.

All in all I'm satisfied with my choice of using Reddit for MKVToolNix support.

I have a Reddit acc but no time to maintain an extra thread/topic there. For me is Doom9 the best place. All great programmer are here.

Linux support was implemented with rev1.00. When support for Win7 ends, I want use Linux (never Win10).

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.19 is available.
Windows
Linux


New function: start chapterEditor only once

I first had to read a little bit, because there are a few different approaches.
Much was synonymous only for Windows and much out with it.

If possible, the new feature should not interfere with normal operation if it is disabled.
In addition, the sending of the parameters should be done quickly.
But it seemed that you always have to start the new instance first.

After looking for something in the Lazarus forum, I found a good solution with which only the parameters are sent.
No start (and then stop) the new instance more necessary.

The 1st instance is brought to the foreground. However, this only works 100% under Linux.
With a small workaround it also works under Windows, except that the form gets the actual focus.

For the activation of the function I have decided for a rather untypical way.
In the settings you have only one checkbox on / off hook. A file is created / deleted in the cE folder -> 1.ce
Querying if a file exists is super fast and requires no query any parameters.
Of course, the file "1.ce" can also be manually deleted / created.

Code:
Change chapterEditor

added    &
fixed    *

rev1.19 2019-09-15

Hi von Suppé

I have no idea how I could realize this. But I understand your request and you are not the first one which asked me.
Maybe you could use a player which can set chapter points to an internal list and save to a file. VLC? But I guess the time stamps are limited to seconds accuracy and this is not enough.

Not being a request really, I just thought it was cE that I used for this purpose (ages ago).
Of course I can copy timecodes from a tool like Avidemux (goes into a thousandth of a second) and paste them in a simple textfile.
I just can't remember then what tool I did use, that had a button for this.

As for mkv chapter timecodes, I guess I can only use keyframe timings?

cheers

An mkv timecode exist not really, it is a unsigned integer.
You can use any time you want, it is not necessary to use keyframes.

It does make seaking to chapters slower and if the player only seeks to keyframes it might not actually seek to the exact frame you wanted. But it usually works.

Complete chapterEditor newbie

Can chapterEditor make a single file MKV that skips opening credits?

You can skip e.g. openings by adding chapters for the times that are NOT the opening (with start and end time(s)). Then flag the edition as "ordered" and save the chapter to the respective mkv file.

Do you mean an extra file? Chapters can reference other files by setting the ChapterSegmentUID to the UID of the other file. If you need a small dummy file just cut e.g. 1 frame via mkvtoolnix from your show.

Hi Krawhitham

Only with Matroska you are able to play the content of videos alternate. You can skip content, add content from other files, change the order of content and many more.

You must use ordered chapters, activate the ordered flag for an edition.
You can have multiple editions: one with the full content and an other edition without the credits.

Hi hubblec4

Again, I'm busy with creating a multi-edition mkv from the ISO of a multi-editions BD.

Now, I'want to edit the sup files of all editions. With a single-edition BD-movie I extract the SUP files, OCR, edit the timings and text and then export to new SUP (with altered fonts, sizes, placements etc.).

Since several (if not most) m2ts files are used in all three editions, I guess there's no other way than to extract all wanted SUP-streams from the proper playlists seperately, edit them in my usual workflow, and add them manually to the proper editions in your "Disc to mkv" window?

Should I accidentally (or, on purpose) edit one or more subtitles from different editions (but present in the same m2ts stream) in different ways, can I run into problems?
Or will your tool mux all manually added SUP files intact (and asign each SUP-stream to it's proper edition).
