auto-naming folders

Post by Kudilu » Wed Dec 06, 2017 7:21 am

I would prefer to use a 'custom' folder for my rips, rather than the automatic one that makeMKV suggests. However, when I use a custom folder rather than the automatic, it no longer fills in a folder for the disc i'm ripping, based on the 'name' of the disc. So it wants to rip everything directly to my custom videos folder, rather than putting discs in their own folders.
is there a way I can make it make folders for discs by default, when using a custom 'default' directory?

Not really sure what you're asking for....

On my system, I have "SemiAuto" selected, and the text box contains just "z:". When I open a disk, MakeMKV sets the destination to:

z:/[name of disk]

For example, opening "In this Corner of the World" BD results in an output path of "z:/In_this_Corner_of_the_World". (I still have to override this, because movies go in to Z:/Movies initially.)

I tried setting "auto", but "semiauto" works better for me.
