[REQUEST] file split by chapters

Post by NomadCF » Wed Jul 15, 2009 4:55 am

Title says it all, 1 file for every chapters.

Useful example:
right now all all my anime DVDs look to MakeMKV like 1 large movie. even though there are 3 EPs per DVD. And while do I understand that it how they are really are on the DVD. It would be wonderful to have the option to have MakeMKV create/split the output file in to FILE based on chapters.

Right now I'm using DVD Decrypter to convert my DVDs to chaptered VOBs. Then converting those to/into MKVs.

You can also use mkvmerge to split produced MKV file. This feature is a bit tricky from UI prespective. Feature request noted, but I would not count on it to be implemented soon.

That is only partially true. You can split a produced MKV, but it does not allow for splitting of MKV based on chapters. But like i said so far when I've wanted to do i just turn to using DVD Decryptor. And have it outputs VOBs by chapters and I just "convert"/merge those to into a MKV.

NomadCF, what method do you use for converting your VOBs to MKV?

DVD Decrypter does this the By Chapter option under Settings> IFO Mode. Last version was from 2005 and only work with DVD. So i know it is possible .Would be nice to see this in MakeMKV.

It's already been implemented as DVD Manual Mode.

Before you start scanning the disc just check the "open DVD manually" box and...

/manualdvd/

An older thread, but I felt the need to correct the earlier post. You can absolutely split by chapters with mkvmerge, it's supported it for years -- I do it all the time.

mkvmerge -o output.mkv --split chapters:all input.mkv

You can also do it like:

mkvmerge -o output.mkv --split chapters:10,15,20 input.mkv
