Do i need updatecopier.exe with megui or not?

compile.bat is still wrong

F:\msys\1.0\home\user\megui>md Dist\updatecopier

F:\msys\1.0\home\user\megui>copy updatecopier.exe .\Dist\updatecopier
The system cannot find the file specified.

I use svn co https://svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/megui/trunk megui
and i want to know if it can be fixed, i can do myself, but i would like to automate......

bobor the SVN version is still unstable.
continue using 2192.
btw a workaround for updatecopier.exe:
- run the compile script for updatecopier.
- copy updatecopier.exe into the trunk directory
- run compile.bat in trunk

ill update the compile.bat though...

Updated compilation scripts so running compile.bat in trunk will compile all the necessary stuff and copy the required MeGUI files into the "Dist" directory.

Its still kinda crappy trunk/compile.bat browses to another dir to run another .bat, which does not run inside mingw, but opens a new cmd.exe, which is no good.

Everything that is needed should be in trunk, if updatecopier.exe is part of megui core, it should be in the trunk dir (as subdir ofcourse).
Then 1 compile.bat is enough and i dont have to checkout svn 2x (trunk and updatecopier)

Also note, if updatecopier.exe is part of megui, it is not copied to the BigDist dir.

Bugs or Features... let me know


... and no, i will host whatever latest version of megui... as said before... same as x264, megui is very alpha-ish and thus should be tested by as many people as possible.

UpdateCopier is a different package (and obviously it's not part of the core).
Just checkout the megui dir (not only trunk) and you will get all the necessary stuff.
If everything is in the right place you can just run the compile.bat in trunk and you're done.
I'll see how can i fix the compile.bat in trunk to work with mingw though.

I haven't looked at the current situation, but I think what should happen (and it sounds like this is what bob0r is saying) is that we should have a compile.bat file in each package (and I consider updatecopier a separate package from megui, likewise for neroraw and messageboxexlib), and a global compile.bat which just runs each of the other compile.bat files. Thus, if you download just the megui trunk, you can compile just megui, without needing everything else.

Basically, I think we should separate as much into packages as possible, so that the least amount of updating is required, because a change to core shouldn't require re-downloading of updatecopier (which at the moment it doesn't anyway).

Hi, can you please point new links in MeGUI for the wiki towards http://mewiki.project357.com ? It's pretty much setup now, I just have to copy the rest of the images across and readd a few redirects. I'm using .htaccess to make the page addresses nice and logical (/Main_Page instead of index.php?title=Main_Page), but my poor htaccess coding skills mean I don't know how to exclude specific subdirectories from this, which will be a problem if the random mirror system is implemented.

On that front, I've mirrored everything in the megui/auto directory in http://mewiki.project357.com/auto , but as you can see it's inaccessible as the .htaccess rule is rewriting it. If you can help me solve this, please PM me, I've been searching high & low for the solution for the past two nights.

Maybe firefox just hates me - the page will load in IE for me but in ff it leads me to http://mewiki.project357.com/Forbidden.html . Doesn't seem to be affected by logging into the wiki - I guess it's something random on my end. I guess this means the mirror is ready for use if it's wanted (with an ftp acct for updating of course).

I completely removed that POS (Firefox). Its main features are:
1-being filled of bugs
2-eats memory (yeah it's not a bug, it's a feature!)
3-being a pachyderm
4-startup time measured in centuries

Get Opera and you will be ok for the next 3 lives...

I'm running FF 2.0 alpha1 here and I can open the url just fine. On my site, people can't download if they have a software that removes the referer of a http request.. maybe that's your problem?

nobody else has problems - I'll put it down to divine intervention by the Opera gods on sharktooth's behalf

I haven't had time to do anything code-wise.. I still have to figure out a couple things about subtitle handling and most importantly I need some time.. working until 9pm every day really doesn't help with the motivation to work on megui.. I just need a break some time and megui just doesn't pay the bills.

ok. BTW porting to mono is becoming quite impossible. Also there is too much windows related packages dependencies.
So I've decided some time ago to "revert" megui for linux to its original nature: being a Mencoder GUI.
I "freezed" the avisynth 3 interface (it's almost working but avisynth 3 status is too much unstable) in favour of mencoder (libavcodec) input/filtering/processing/encoding.
The workflow is also changed radically...
All the supported functions (cropping, filtering, etc) including deinterlacing (it's not yet automatic as in MeGUI) and video codecs are now managed by mencoder.
Also there's the possibility to use Lame, NeroAACenc (thru wine), faac etc... as in current MeGUI.
Preview, Subtitles and Multiple Tracks are not working right now and muxing is done thru mp4box and mkvmerge as usual (no AVI, sorry but it can be added later altering the workflow a bit). I've also completely rewritten the Adaptive Muxer...
There's no need for d2v creator, mencoder replaced it. There's no autoupdate yet but i plan to implement it with wget.
An "alpha" release will come asap (read: when i'll have time to fix some problems).
On the "new features" front, i've added the (in)famous compression test to the oneclick encoder. After selecting the encoder and the profile MeGUIx asks if you want to run a comp test. When it ends it will "suggest" the final filesizes for different final video qualities from which the user can choose from or just dont care about it and set his own personal filesize/media.
This feature is subject to change for a better "quality" metric (PSNR or SSIM instead of percentage based on the comptest filesize but i have no idea in how to implement it without avisynth).

That is just a "what you can expect" from the MeGUIx "fork".
It is really very different from MeGUI coz most of the code has been rewritten/heavily modified.
Oh... i was about to forget profiles are not compatible with MeGUI.
