Hi shon3i,

thanks for the new version.

I just made some extended tests to maybe detect a pattern which IFOs ChapterGen refuses to accept. But there does not seem to be a specific thing these IFOs have in common.

It happens for about 10% of my DVDs. It does not matter if I open the IFO from the DVD or from the hard drive. ChapterGen just does nothing. When I then try to use the Open Disc command I get an error message 'Runtime Error 55, File is already open', and ChapterGen closes itself. Restarting ChapterGen and using the Open Disc command again works. (For the Open disc command to work it is necessary that the IFO is located in a folder with the name VIDEO_TS)

ChapterXTractor has no problems with these IFOs.
Here is the link to one of the problematic IFOs:

Hope this helps...

Cheers
manolito

With this version my .cmd file stops dead at a dialog I've never seen before, saying only CHAP and requiring a keystroke?

shon3i, you should maybe think about putting a link to this thread (ChapterGen) in your sig.

Also, thanks for making/sharing this.

Hi shon3i,

Chaptergen doesn't work in cmd mode when the source video path contains a "-" character (even when the path is between quotes), it indicates a "Run-time error '52' => Bad file name or number", maybe it recognizes the "-" character as an option operator?

Thanks...

shon3i, my VideoReDo editor does not output chapters in tsMuxeR format HH:MM:SS.milliseconds as I need, but instead framenumbers. Any chance you could allow framenumbers as INPUT? Here's a sample of frame numbers from a 59.94 TV program, and the command I would like to use on it. Thanks for your consideration!

Code:
0
24854
35765
49430
54449
57308
65678
75212
84197
99474
137268
152460
168003
180657
185298
193434
216868
235267
238240
248278
270406
299038
332388
346824
393174
399870
402011
"C:\Program Files (x86)\ChapterGen\ChapterGen.exe" -i chapters.txt -o tsMuxeR.txt -f tsMuxer -infps 60/1.001 -outfps 60/1.001

Frame number input would be useful.

I also use VideoReDo to edit HD tv captures and then author to Blu-ray with tsmuxer.

I use VideoRedo, and I have the chapters format selection HH:MM:SS.ff, works for me for tsMuxeR! Seems to be pretty accurate too.

Yes, I noticed that too, but it's only "pretty accurate" as you said--my expectation about it is that while VRD's ff output is a frame number, tsMuxeR accepts it as .ms instead, so for example if the frame number is frame 22 e.g. VRD's output is

00:27:32.22

then tsMuxeR interprets this as .220 (220 milliseconds) whereas frame 22 for a 24/1.001 program would actually be at 918ms. So your chapter seek might land on a previous I-frame instead of the desired one.

Whether the miss is offensive or not of course depends on the program. But I'm very anal about this stuff so like to get it perfect, if possible...

My usage for VideoRedo is to cut commercials from recorded HD TV shows, so there is much more leniency for chapter marks at these commercial cuts. But I see and agree with your point!
