Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Taggi

It's been a while since I posted here, and I'm glad to see some of my original suggestions have made it into the scripts (particularly, replacing underscore characters as spaces when renaming source folders). I just updated to v1.0.9 of the scripts, and once again, I'm very impressed with the work y...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

Hello, The grep command was getting the first line which was the entire string. It'll be fixed in the next update, ... Thanks for digging into this. I hope I didn't come across as accusatory in my post. To be totally honest with you, I actually prefer the configuration where it encodes all tracks of...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

Hello, For movies, there is already code that selects only the longest title (between the min/max duration). While I don't doubt that the code is in there, as I'm sure you've come across several of these cases, I've never experienced a situation where the batch encode only does a single track when m...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

I forgot to mention a modification I made to the batchEncode.sh file. In a previous post, I had asked about working around discs that have more than one track that meets the length requirements (all of them would be encoded with the same file name, so I'd end up with just the last track). With an ad...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

Hello, I've made some minor tweaks to the source code found in the copy of the actions I have here. I thought it would be only fair that I post them here for your review and offer them for your inclusion in an update if you see fit. First, while transferring several dozen DVDs, I found that most of ...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

Hello, I found the source code - or at least what I believe is the source code. I'm still a newbie with XCode and Mac-packaged code. I didn't realize that the source code is included in the .action packages. (I come from Microsoft .NET world nowadays, but my deepest roots are C++ and Java.) So, I'll...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

Hello, Thanks for the suggestion to load MetaX. That seems to work well. It "integrates" with iTunes, so that's nice. As I make my way through my library, I'm coming upon some DVDs that include both the widescreen and the fullscreen versions of a given movie. The Batch Encode process does a nice job...

Re: How-To: Automate DVD & Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding & Tagging)

Hello, First off, awesome post! This tutorial walked through every step and worked perfectly right from the start. The first disk I tried ended up showing bad sectors in FairMount, and the tutorial gave clear warning that this might happen with some discs and gave a possible alternative solution. So...
