I just tried in a DOS command shell sth. like:

lame.exe --alt-preset 128 "C:\Path with Spaces\test.wav" and it worked. So there must be a way. Without qoutes it doesn't work, then it says: Could not find "C:\Path".
Just as a little hint. (and I think that's how most CLI programs handle file paths in (Win)DO(w)S)

lame.exe does not receive the quotes in its argument string; DOS strips them. We want DGIndex to receive the delimiter character. If it was simply the case that we wanted to be able to pass spaces in filenames, it would be easy as you say.

And there I was thinking all the fuzz here was about being able to pass a filename with spaces to DGIndex...

Or, in other words - what do you need the delimiter characters for if you know the whole next parameter is a complete filename?

If this is about the comma separated list of file names - how about doing it like loads of GNU software does it?

DGIndex -IF "path to\file1" -IF "path to\file2" -IF "yet another\path to\file3"

etc.?

np: MC Frontalot - Which MC Was That? (demo)

We have a working solution and compatibility with existing tools. I'm not interested in spending any more time on it, nor do I think it is worth it.

compatibility shouldn't be the problem, pseudo code:

Code:
if commandline contains "-SD=" or
    commandline contains "-IF=" or
    commandline contains "-BF=" or
    commandline contains and so on then

    use old syntax and parser
else
    use new syntax and parser

hi there, might be a silly question, but if i demux a vob file that was ripped of in ifo mode with decrypter, the generated stream information file shows me audio delay of -80, but the filename of the demuxed audio shows 0 ms, so what is the correct value? is this stream delayed, yes or no? would be nice if somebody can help me out here, so that i can encode this audio with proper delay in besweet.

cheers

imo i think you should go with dgindex' value. DD can sometimes be wrong. (i am assuming the 0ms delay was from dgindex.)
Oh..and welcome to the forum.

As I recall, you were supposed to install some stupid player software on the CD, which I wasn't keen to do. It was an M2M CD, BTW...
You're talking about the video on Shades Of Purple? Hmm, DGIndex has problems with that:



VLC/Windows Media Player play it fine, but other software has trouble. Just a weird file I guess, but I will upload it if anyone wants.

EDIT: Screenshot is from 1.4.0RC4

You know I'm going you to ask you to upload it, so why waste time asking me?

OK, here we go. Please upload it to my FTP server and tell the file name here. Thank you.

I like the popcorn explosion. And the chicks are hot.

OK, so this one had 2.2 MBytes of garbage before the first pack header. What if the next one has 20 MBytes? 200 MBytes? Where are you getting these things?

I have to think about this.

EDIT: She sounds like Britney.

Don, create a small dialog with some kind of progress bar (or maybe just a label saying "Scanning for Pack Header...."), and a Cancel button.

Then you can scan the whole file for the pack header, and users know DGIndex isn't locked up, and they can abort if desired.

Just a quick thought. How about an "Extended Option" mode in "File Open" menu (like in Virtualdub), where an option "scan aggressively for first pack header" where DGIndex will scan even the whole file (or an user specified Mbytes) looking for first pack header.

In the default setting, DGIndex scans only the first 200 Kbytes. If it fails to find first pack header, a pop-up box will tell the user something like "File unrecognised. You may want to try open it with Extended Option".

Edit: Cyberia posted while I wrote. A progress bar is nice.

That's the one! I don't remember it having 2.2 MBytes of junk, but it was quite a while back. I dug up my old CD of this, and in fact the current VirtualDub-MPEG2 won't open it. You would have to raise the SEARCH_SYSTEM_LIMIT #define and recompile.

Now it's all coming back to me. Interesting that they gave the file an .mpg extension. And yes the chicks are hot, but better than Britney IMHO.

Hmm, I almost overlooked this statement. I don't have VLC installed, and on my computer WMP6.4 and WMP10 won't play it. (Indeed, NOTHING I have right now will play it.)

I think it's because I see a filter called "Ulead MPEG Splitter" being used. When I use the overrides in MPC to disable that, other MPEGs play fine but not this one.

You guys might be interested to know that after running the "m2msophcd001.mpg" clip thru' VCDGear (using it's mpeg -> mpeg setting), it's possible to generate a fully working (and in sync) file. That in-turn, can be recognised by all your media players and DGIndex again


Cheers

Old or Obsolete D2V file

When I demux and try to load into VDubMod I get the error "Old or Obsolete D2V file". I tried to fix the D2V file but DGIndex says that there are no errors.

I am not sure what you mean can you elaborate? Let me elaborate. Does this only concern this particular file or have you discovered a method of resyncing bad files?
