Feature Request: --maxlength = Maximium Length of title

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."
