IIRC, this low-level functionality was requested/implemented so that users could write their own scripts, where the script itself was expected to parse the output & construct the desired (individual) command lines. If you are expecting higher-level functionality, I would bet you MAY be waiting a long time (although I do not presume to speak for Mike).

Thanks for your reply d00zah, much appreciated.

This begs 2 questions...
  • How does the GUI work "under the hood" when you tick boxes and select tracks 2,3 from the DVD disc?
  • What does the command line software makemkvcon do exactly when you choose "all" as the parameter for which tracks to rip?
If makemkvcon keeps a list of tracks to rip (in an array?) when you choose "all", surely (at least to my 51 year old mind) it cannot be too hard to write a subroutine to parse a list of tracks supplied as '2,3'?

Hopefully, Mike will reply and give us the answer so I can stop nagging!

Have a nice weekend :-)

Regards,

Paully

PS: thanks Mike for all your hard work on this software... it is the second best £50 I have ever spent! (the first was a tandem skydive out of a plane above New Zealand but that's another story!)

Hello fellow Linux users,

I wrote this...

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash

#
# cli wrapper for makemkv to rip selected titles
#

# change to home directory
cd;

# read disc to show titles
lsdvd -q;

# ask which titles
read -p "Which titles? " TITLES;

# show chosen titles
echo "$TITLES";

# load titles in to an array
titles_array=($TITLES);

# show array
echo "${titles_array[@]}"

# process each title
for title in "${titles_array[@]}";
do
    # echo "makemkvcon mkv disc:0 $title ./"
    makemkvcon mkv disc:0 $title ./ 
    sleep 3s;
done;

# finish
exit;
..hope you find it useful.

Please tweak as required. Comments and suggestions welcome.

Regards,

:-)

Paully
