Chapters every n minutes

Post by Vietwoojagig » Mon Oct 13, 2014 11:46 am

In the chapters section, near the "Create chapter markers"-checkbox.

Could you add a pull-down with "---/every 2 minutes / every 5 minutes / every 10 minutes /..."

Thanks

That checkbox doesn't create markers, it simply allows you to pass the embedded markers from the source be it DVD or file.

You can do this by using Drax or MP4Box on your source file.

@TedJ: Yes I know what the purpose of that checkbox is.
@musicvid: Yes I know that there are applications around that can add markers after encoding (e.g. Subler)

But it would be nice, if this could already be done during encoding.

Why would you want this?

Is your player broken?

In AppleTV you can only fast-forward in case you don't have chapters.
