Feature Request: --maxlength = Maximium Length of title

Post by plittlefield » Sun Feb 18, 2018 9:00 pm

Please would it be possible to have a Maximum Length (--maxlength) option in the same way you have Minimum Length?

How are you getting on with this?

(I do notice that over 6000 people have read this post, which is kind of a clue that it's wanted :-)

Here is an example of a DVD where it would work.

There are 7 titles which have actual episodes.

The first title (02:50:56.480) has the other 6 episodes all together in one large title...

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
...and I do not want this one.

So, using the command line, I could do each title separately (because of viewtopic.php?f=10&t=17435 missing feature!) or I could use --maxlength and all like so...

Code: Select all

makemkvcon --minlength=1000 --maxlength=2100 mkv disc:0 all /tmp/
See how good that is?!

Views count doesn't mean a lot when people read just about every message.

OK then, how about a Voting page for new features?

I know people put a reply with +1 on some posts.

I don't want to stray off topic here, just want to know if people want this feature and some constructive comments.

Perhaps a new phpBB forum?

Thanks,

Paully

PS: I am even prepared to DONATE to get this feature... you know the phrase "putting my money where my mouth is."

Hey Mike,

I'd like to second this feature request because I've found a use for it. I completely understand if this isn't a priority, but as a software feature, it feels like low hanging fruit.

Thank you.

Is there any word on this?

Typical use case, a DVD with 7 episodes... there are 8 tracks on the disc - 1 track with all of the episodes together and then the 7 individual episodes.

So, my usual command line will save 8 titles, wearing the precious drive out longer...

Code: Select all

$ makemkvcon mkv disc:0 all /tmp/
MakeMKV v1.15.1 linux(x64-release) started
Using direct disc access mode
Using LibreDrive mode (v05 id=E064BA3E3F81)
[b]Title #1 was added (41 cell(s), 2:27:53)[/b]
Title #2 was added (5 cell(s), 0:23:48)
Title #3 was added (5 cell(s), 0:20:43)
Title #4 was added (5 cell(s), 0:20:41)
Title #5 was added (5 cell(s), 0:20:33)
Title #6 was added (5 cell(s), 0:20:42)
Title #7 was added (5 cell(s), 0:20:41)
Title #8 was added (5 cell(s), 0:20:45)
Title #9 has length of 27 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 120 seconds and was therefore skipped
Operation successfully completed
Saving [b]8[/b] titles into directory /tmp/
...what I need is a command line like this...

Code: Select all

$ makemkvcon mkv disc:0 --maxlength=1800 all /tmp/
Please?!

Thanks.

Regards,

:-)
