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

First of all, Mac.Jedi - fantastic work, thank you very much for putting all the work into this as well as supporting. Quick question about presets since the Handbrake documentation hasn't been updated yet for 0.9.4. If I want to continue using the Universal preset in conjunction with this work flo...

Hi drawkward,

No need to remove 1.0.3. If you run the installer, it'll know if it's upgrading you or doing a new install.

Thanks, mac.jedi

When I enable the checkbox, the terminal window opens and c...

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

I actually prefer the configuration where it encodes all tracks of valid length. For those that want to the same but don't want to dig into the code, you can just "pretend" your movie sources are tv shows and put them in the Batch Rip TV folder. Then all the tracks will be encoded between the min/m...

I've never experienced a situation where the batch encode only does a single track when multiple are present. I did a little more digging and found that there is a problem with the code on line 436. At some point I changed the titleList from a list with each title as a line to a space delimited str...

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

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).
