[Feature Request] CLI - multiple selected titles

Post by plittlefield » Sat May 05, 2018 8:51 am

Please could you add a function to select multiple titles on the makemkvcon command line app?

e.g.

Code: Select all

makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 1,2,3,4 /tmp/
Thank you and keep up the great work!

Paul

Since there has not been a new version of MakeMKV issued since your request, I'd say the answer is, "No".

Have you looked at the third-party batch processor found here for hints on how to do this?

Alas, this is just too much effort for a seemingly simple thing.

If you can select different titles in the GUI version, surely this can be passed on to the command line version?

I always thought the MakeMKV was using makemkvcon 'underneath' anyway?

Thanks.

Hello All,

I would still like to see this feature.

As an example (of my frustration) here is a DVD of Mrs. Brown's Boys, showing 7 titles on the disc, but I only want 6 of them...

Code: Select all

$ lsdvd
Disc Title: U5_8282823A_R0
Title: 01, Length: 02:50:56.480 Chapters: 37, Cells: 37, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 02, Length: 00:29:07.480 Chapters: 07, Cells: 07, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 03, Length: 00:28:37.480 Chapters: 07, Cells: 07, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 04, Length: 00:28:54.480 Chapters: 07, Cells: 07, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 05, Length: 00:28:30.480 Chapters: 07, Cells: 07, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 06, Length: 00:27:52.480 Chapters: 07, Cells: 07, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 07, Length: 00:27:56.480 Chapters: 07, Cells: 07, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 08, Length: 00:00:00.480 Chapters: 01, Cells: 01, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 09, Length: 00:00:41.080 Chapters: 04, Cells: 04, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Title: 10, Length: 00:00:10.480 Chapters: 02, Cells: 02, Audio streams: 01, Subpictures: 00
Longest track: 01
The command to do this would be (with amended numbering that makes sense!)...

Code: Select all

makemkvcon mkv disc:0 2,3,4,5,6,7 /tmp/
...surely this is not that hard to do?!?

Come on!

While I wait for this feature to be added, I am "winging it"...

Code: Select all

makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 2 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 3 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 4 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 5 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 6 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 7 /tmp/
...which is a real pain, but I'm sure it won't be long, eh?

:-(
