CLI cannot find DVD titles but GUI can

Post by ProfSteve » Tue Mar 19, 2019 8:07 pm

Handbreake CLI says NO TITLE FOUND, but Handbrake GUI finds 3 titles

I have several DVD folders in my hard drive. The CLI version of Handbrake says there are no titles in these folders but the GUI version finds titles. (I have many other DVD folders that work just fine.) Any help would be appreciated. :)

Here is one output from the CLI version using the command

Handbrakecli.exe -i "L:\Dorothy Sayer's Mysteries\1-Strong Poison DVD\AUDIO_TS\Video_TS" -t0 e:\temp\aaaDVDTitles.txt

The GUI version reports 3 titles.

Handbrakecli.exe -i "L:\Dorothy Sayer's Mysteries\1-Strong Poison DVD\AUDIO_TS\Video_TS" -t0 e:\temp\aaaDVDTitles.txt
Why are you pointing the CLI to the AUDIO_TS directory? Just point it to the parent directory for the DVD.

The GUI may be cleverer for user errors.

And your log isn’t from the same command:

ibdvdread: Can't open L:\Dorothy Sayer's Mysteries\1-Strong Poison DVD\VIDEO_TS\Video_TS for reading
