Thank you hubblec4 !

I installed the 64bit version that's why it didn't work.
Now with the 32bit version of SSL it works well. I even found back my account.

Thanks for still maintaining this useful software

I have one question concerning the database:

Is it possible to edit an already existing entry which I uploaded ? In particular, I would like to edit the comment I made in the "notes" field, if this is possible.

Yes you can edit all your own uploaded titles.
Main menu: Chapter database -> Edit chapters

The tab looks like the Upload-tab.
You can now search your title(s) and edit them.

When I try to use the database (Click Database button) feature to get chapter entries for some old movies, the error message "Could not initialize OpenSSL library". It worked before. How to solve this?

Get the OpenSSL libs from the link in this post and place them in the folders where the ChapterEditor is located.

Keep in mind that you need the 32bit version of the libs, even if your OS is 64bit, since chapterEditor.exe is a 32bit binary.

Hello @hubblec4,

I can't upload a chapter to the database. It just say "API error" in an alert popup.
I still can search and downloads existing chapters in the BDD though.

EDIT: my Movie playing time format was incorrect but the error wasn't related to the usual format error.
I tried to input "1:48:50" instead of "01:48:50.000000000".
Maybe you can add this case to Date format error

Hi PyragriC

What is your nick name for the online chapter database?

What is "BDD"?

Many thanks for this info.
The API needs the HH:MM:SS.MS/NS format.
It should be simple to fix that.

Any possibility for a dark mode for chapter editors in the near future?

Thank you for this amazing tool.

Hi DocShaker
and welcome to Doom9.

Indeed, I had played with that thought but it seems not so easy.
Currently I have no time for coding so I can not say when I can start, but I add it to my TODO list.

A next version of cE is almost ready and then can l investigate in this request.

If you want you could help me with infos, because I have not so much experience with Dark Mode.

update rev 1.37

chapterEditor(cE) rev1.37 is available.
Windows
Linux


Another update with improvements and another important fix for the Matroska Tags.

The improvements are mainly for the Matroska menu (Matroska Linking).
For my first tests back then, I always cut off a small piece from an episode for a main playback file (up to the first video keyframe).

This has the advantage that I can also play this file without the linked content.
You don't have any content, but the chapter structure is displayed in the media player.
That made experimenting easier.

But you don't need all the tracks, it's enough if there are only linked chapters in the main playback file.

Furthermore, I had provided all invisible chapters with chapter names for testing the nested chapter structure.
However, some media players also show hidden chapters, which then looks very confusing.

A good Matroska player will not display chapter names if the ChapterFlagHidden element is active.

However, this additional chapter naming does not bring any advantage and only inflates the chapters unnecessarily.

Most media players replace empty chapter names with a default name, but without taking nesting into account.
Normally, a "+" is placed in front of a chapter name for each level, but this is missing from the default name.
As a result, the chapter structure in the media player no longer looks good.
So I always padded empty chapter names with the chapter number, but for a Top-Level chapter structure this can be quite useful and is now configurable.

You can now also not use any chapter names, which makes the main playback file very small.

For a better overview of which chapter belongs to which file in a Top-Level chapter structure, there is now the option of using the file name as a prefix.

Code:
Change chapterEditor

added    &
fixed    *
improved #
changed  %


rev1.37 2023-04-16
// chapterEditor
& Settings button in the sidebar
  - a left click opens the settings of the active editor
  - a right click always opens the main settings

% removed setting buttons from Chapter editors and Matroska Tags


// Chapter Database
* Upload and Edit: Movie playing time
  - all time formats that cE masters are now possible as input


// Matroska Menu (settings)
& Main Playback File: "The MKV file contains only Linked-Chapters"
  - there are no tracks in the file
  - since only Chapters and Tags are used, the file becomes very small
  - the file can only be played if the linked content is in the same folder

& "No chapter names"
  - without chapter names, the main playback file will be even smaller

& "Fill in empty chapter names"
  - only the chapter number is used
  - this is used to ensure that a media player does not generate automatic chapter names

& "Use filename as chapter name prefix"
  - only applicable for the Top-Level chapter structure
  - a chapter name must be present

& "Verbose chapter naming"
  - Not recommended as it is more for development purposes
  - only applicable for the nested chapter structure
  - invisible chapters also get a chapter name

% playing the main playback file is now on the play button, by right-clicking

% manually creating a main playback file is unnecessary and no longer allowed when only linking chapters are used


// Matroska Tags
* Removed the value "PART" from the list of valid values when TargetTypeVaule = 20 (bug in Matroska specification)

Issue on reading simple chapter lists in txt-files.

Hi hubblec4,

I'm having the problem on reading timecode lists in ordinary txt-files (see my screenshot).
Chapter Editor imports the list, but zeros the frame numbers and takes it as a chapter name. Makes no sense. Can you fix that soon?

best
Jim

It's nothing special. Simply text-file from text editor in Windows.
