[Feature Request] CLI - multiple selected titles

Post by plittlefield » Sat May 05, 2018 8:51 am

Please could you add a function to select multiple titles on the makemkvcon command line app?

e.g.

Code: Select all

makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 1,2,3,4 /tmp/
Thank you and keep up the great work!

Paul

Since there has not been a new version of MakeMKV issued since your request, I'd say the answer is, "No".

Have you looked at the third-party batch processor found here for hints on how to do this?

Alas, this is just too much effort for a seemingly simple thing.

If you can select different titles in the GUI version, surely this can be passed on to the command line version?

I always thought the MakeMKV was using makemkvcon 'underneath' anyway?

Thanks.

Hello All,

I would still like to see this feature.

As an example (of my frustration) here is a DVD of Mrs. Brown's Boys, showing 7 titles on the disc, but I only want 6 of them...

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
Longest track: 01
The command to do this would be (with amended numbering that makes sense!)...

Code: Select all

makemkvcon mkv disc:0 2,3,4,5,6,7 /tmp/
...surely this is not that hard to do?!?

Come on!

While I wait for this feature to be added, I am "winging it"...

Code: Select all

makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 2 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 3 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 4 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 5 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 6 /tmp/ && makemkvcon --minlength=1000 mkv disc:0 7 /tmp/
...which is a real pain, but I'm sure it won't be long, eh?

:-(

Given that the release version is the same as the last time you asked, the answer would have to be, "There is no news."

Are you certain that the GUI isn't just making repeated calls to the CLI, one file at a time? It is communicating with it bi-directionally, so that it can display progress, after all.

I don't know... perhaps the writer of the software could tell us!
