When you say "swtiched" to a movie, do you mean when you load movie discs up vs tv shows... or does it find it as a tv show and switch it to a movie?

I'm only feeding movies (video_ts\*.vob) using basic mode. When the search is done all the movies are named Movie\Episode 1.mkv. Then when I highlight them all and say "Change to Movie" they show they as .mkv. Weird right?

Haven't heard from you in a while. Just checking in.
I made some changes, not sure if you have noticed yet. Hopefully it fixes the basic mode renaming and general naming convention of movies and/or tv series.

Just tried out the new update.

The movie conversion naming is working. Great!
But its still not deleting the source folders (video_ts and audio_ts). The only thing in the log is this:
Error deleting files: Access to the path 'AUDIO_TS' is denied.
at System.IO.Directory.DeleteHelper(String fullPath, String userPath, Boolean recursive, Boolean throwOnTopLevelDirectoryNotFound)
at System.IO.Directory.Delete(String fullPath, String userPath, Boolean recursive, Boolean checkHost)
at System.IO.DirectoryInfo.Delete()
at M2M.MainWindow.DeleteDirectoryContents(DirectoryInfo directory) in C:\Users\rc4es\source\repos\Backup Movies2MKV Converter\Movies2MKV Converter\MainWindow.cs:line 2210


New issue:
Nested movies or boxsets are being converted and saved outside the source folder.
Example
\Movies\Kill Bill [Boxset]
\KillBill 1\Video_ts\
\KillBill 2\Video_ts\
is converted to
Movies\KillBill 1\killbill 1.mkv
Movies\KillBill 1\killbill 2.mkv
With \Movies\Kill Bill [Boxset] being left in tact
Not a big deal just thought it was strange.

The naming issue is fixed and its not putting a subfolder under the movie folder so far so good.

The delete process, I am not sure there is anything I can do about that. However, if you have administrator rights on the computer, you could try running the application with admin right (ie: run as administrator). That should work, if it doesn't, then something else is trying to access a file in that folder and won't allow the program to delete it.

Here's the reasoning for where I am placing the output files. I'm basically trying to give a clean way to output the files. Whatever fold you choose to scan for movies, if you haven't chosen a specific output path, will be the start of the output file path. In other words, if you chose to search for movies in the C:\movies directory and you have output same as input folder marked in options, then that should be the base of your output path. It will then, in basic mode, take the volume id of the disc as a folder followed by the output filename. Something like this:

C:\movies\<volume label of disc>\<makemkv output name>.mkv
ie: C:\movies\KILL_BILL_VOLUME_1\Kill_Bill_Volume_1_t02.mkv

In Plex mode, if you have the directory labeled correctly. It would be more like this

C:\movies\<directory of movie name or name of iso file>\<directory of movie name or name of iso file>.mkv<
ie: C:\movies\Kill Bill Vol 1 (2003)\Kill Bill Vol 1 (2003).mkv

I hope this helps you understand what I am doing. If there are other things you'd like to see, please let me know.

Update issues

Post by Geek16432 » Tue Jun 05, 2018 3:55 pm

I'm sorry if this is elsewhere in the thread, but I couldn't find it.

My system keeps asking me to update to 2.7.0 but never completes the process.

I've even launched as admin, to no avail.

As the download link at the start of the topic is for the 2.6.4 installer, I can't do a fresh install.

Any ideas?
