Choose only 5.1 core stream

Post by Snape90 » Sun Apr 07, 2019 7:55 am

Hi,

i use makekv on ubuntu 18.04 with this default selection rule:

Code: Select all

-sel:all,+sel:audio&(deu|eng),-sel:(havemulti),-sel:mvcvideo,+sel:subtitle&(deu|eng),-sel:special,=100:all,-10:deu
This selects only german and english audio and subtitle streams. I'm not interested in audio streams with 7 or more channels, for my 5.1 is enough. I don't need hd audio either, core stream is enough. Can i modify the selection rule in a way that if there are 2 german or english stream, one with 8 channels and one with 6, only the 5.1 channels is selected by default? if there is an audio stream with hd-audio (dts-hd ma master; 5.1 or 7.1) only the 5.1 core stream should be used.

is it possible that there is a 5.1 audio stream with a 2.0 core stream? If yes here of course 5.1 should be used.

Can be done with "-sel:all,+sel:(ger|eng|nolang),-sel:(havecore),-sel:mvcvideo,=100:all,-50:ger,-10:forced"

Selects all tracks with ger, eng and nolang and deselects the HD part if an core part is available. Works for DD and DTS tracks.

Looking for more documentation on the Selection Rules. Does anyone know if/where they might be? Looked for them in the online help and the FAQ to no benefit.

In particular, I'd like to automatically grab the jpeg attachments, if they are available. Thanks.
