Custom dynamic destination path

Post by xXNorthXx » Sat Dec 31, 2016 3:35 pm

I have a number of dvd's raw ripped already and are trying to convert them a bit faster using the automatic mode with the destination folder but am having some issues.

Source Path: D:/dvds/<dvd title>/<dvd title>/Video_TS/VIDEO_TS.IFO

For the destination I'm trying to output in the format of D:/converted/<dvd title>.mkv

I'm assuming I would within preferences, I would use under the Video tab the Custom option but how do we pass source folder path variables into the output? Is this even an option?

Automatic and semiautomatic modes in MakeMKV are based on the title information found on the DVD, or ISO in this case, rather than the path where the ISO resides. Not all DVD and BD disks have this information.

Thanks, will try it from ISOs instead of the raw dvd rips.
