OK, going through the .workflow files and manually changing the paths does make the actions work for me.

However, my first rips look terrible -- interlace artefacts everywhere. Looking at the rip in progress, it seems the decomb filter isn't running...

Code: Select all

HandBrake 0.9.5 (2011010300) - Darwin x86_64 - http://handbrake.fr

*Creating The West Wing - S1D1-3.m4v
  Video Track: 3, Duration: 00:41:52, Size: 720x576
  Audio Track: 1, English (AC3) (Dolby Surround) (iso639-2: eng)
  Subtitle Tracks:
    + 1, English (iso639-2: eng) (Bitmap)(VOBSUB)
    + 2, English (iso639-2: eng) (Bitmap)(VOBSUB)

Using Universal/DVD-toolArgs: -e x264  -q 20.0 -a 1,1 -E ca_aac,copy:ac3 -B 160,160 -6 dpl2,auto -R Auto,Auto -D 0.0,0.0 -f mp4 -X 720 --loose-anamorphic  -m --subtitle scan --subtitle-burn --subtitle-forced scan --native-language eng -x cabac=0:ref=2:me=umh:bframes=0:weightp=0:8x8dct=0:trellis=0:subme=6

Encoding: task 2 of 2, 67.54 % (29.34 fps, avg 37.34 fps, ETA 00h09m06s)

I just turn it on under the "command line parameters" bit in the .workflow, right?

ANNOUNCEMENT: BATCH RIP ACTIONS UPDATED to 1.0.8

Post by mac.jedi » Tue Aug 09, 2011 2:26 pm

ANNOUNCEMENT: BATCH RIP ACTIONS UPDATED

Update 2011-08-09

Release Notes
Batch Rip Actions for Automator 1.0.8

Everything
  • Improved compatiblity with Mac OS X Lion 10.7
  • Provides general fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and functionality of Batch Rip Actions for Automator
  • Actions have moved to the local Library folder: /Library/Automator
  • Services have been updated for Automator 2.2
  • And perhaps some other stuff I've forgotten about :)
Note: You will need to reset your options in the Batch Rip and Batch Encode workflows. They are located in ~/Library/Services.

Tip: To open a Workflow in Automator, Choose Open (Command-O). Select > Service from the Type pop-up button which will take you to ~/Library/Services. Select the Workflow you'd like to edit and Choose > Open.

Thanks!

Can I get some help with this error?

ERROR: No tracks found or failed to scan source.
Check disc, application, and settings in Automator.

I feel confident the disk is OK b/c when I manually rip in makemkv it works fine. The automation hasn't worked right for me since Lion.

Hi neo8820,

I'll need some more info. Please Check > Verbose Logging in the workflow and post the complete output from Terminal. You can PM me the info if you'd like.

thanks,

Hi mac.jedi,

I could be wrong but I think verbose logging is only available in the encode workflows. Let me know if I'm overlooking. Here is the complete output from terminal for the rip workflow.

This kinda error is hard to diagnose, so we'll have to step through it.

With the disc mounted, Open Terminal and Enter:
"/Applications/MakeMKV.app/Contents/MacOS/makemkvcon" -r --directio=false info disc:list

Please post or PM me the results.

Thanks. Next, with the disc still mounted, Enter the following in Terminal and post the results:

Code: Select all

"/Applications/MakeMKV.app/Contents/MacOS/makemkvcon" -r --directio=false info disc:0

There is some info missing. Did you use the command below?

Code: Select all

"/applications/makemkv.app/contents/macos/makemkvcon" -r --directio=false info disk:0
After the drive list it should print:

Code: Select all

MSG:3007,0,0,"Using direct disc access mode","Using direct disc access mode"
Then a BUNCH of messages like:

Code: Select all

MSG:3025,0,3,"Title #00073.m2ts has length of 200 seconds which is less than minimum title length of 2400 seconds and was therefore skipped","Title #%1 has length of %2 seconds which is less than minimum title length of %3 seconds and was therefore skipped","00073.m2ts","200","2400"
Then output a title list:

Code: Select all

This time I copied/pasted the command from your post to avoid typos and got the same result as last time.

Did you wait for it to scan the disc? It might take a while. If you did, and the command executed, exited completely, and returned you to the shell … MakeMKV cli isn't accessing the disc. The only suggestion I have is to try changing the directio argument to true, and try it again. If it still doesn't read the disc, your best option is to go to the makemkv forums and see if anyone there can help getting makemkvcon to return the scan data. Batch Rip can't automate makemkv if it can't scan the disc.

I hope this helps!

Thanks!

ANNOUNCEMENT: BATCH RIP ACTIONS UPDATED to 1.0.9

Post by mac.jedi » Mon Nov 14, 2011 2:53 pm

ANNOUNCEMENT: BATCH RIP ACTIONS UPDATED

Update 2011-11-13

Release Notes
Batch Rip Actions for Automator 1.0.9

IMPORTANT: Even if you've been testing this, you must re-install the Service workflows.

NOTE: The tutorial has been updated as well for v1.0.9. Additional help is available via the Help menu in the app.

1.0.9 build 254
  • Provides general fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and functionality of Batch Rip Actions for Automator
  • No more Action installer! Just drag Batch Rip Actions for Automator.app to /Applications
  • Actions are now located within Batch Rip Actions for Automator.app
  • Opening the app will update Launch Services and automatically add the actions to the Automator library
  • On first run, a new install/upgrade option will notify you if it needs to update the Actions and workflows
  • Batch Rip Actions for Automator Sparkles! Added support for the Sparkle framework which will automatically alert you of future product upgrades; and quickly get your installation up-to-date
  • New Workflow Editor! Quickly and easily setup, update and save your Batch Rip workflows all in one interface
  • Batch Rip Dispatcher is now part of the app UI. Just click on the status icon or text in toolbar to toggle it on or off. The Batch Rip Dispatcher action & workflow have been deprecated
  • New Action Editor! View and edit the Batch Rip Action script files... if you're daring enough ;)
  • New Batch Encode for iCal! Easily setup a repeating iCal alarm to automatically run Batch Encode at the time and interval you set
  • Tagging is now performed by SublerCLI!
  • mp4v2, SublerCLI and AtomicParsley are now included in the app bundle
  • Added an "indeterminate progress indicator" for the tagging actions (the spin-thingy in the menu bar). Note: this doesn't control workflow, just shows that it's running
  • Rename Movie Items.action has been deprecated. Functionality moved to Add Movie Tags.action
  • Rename and Tagging actions now return the output files as a list for chaining actions
  • New Help via the Help menu and Mac's Help Center
  • The Batch Rip (Finder) & Batch Encode (Finder) workflows use their "non-Finder" workflow's settings. No more having to set options in both versions.
  • Other things that I've already forgotten about
Note: Sadly, but with no remorse, Snow Leopard is no longer supported in v1.0.9. There's very little reason not to upgrade to Lion at this point, so I'm just gonna focus on Lion.

Add TV Tags.action
  • New option: Search tvdb and tag specific episode files
  • Improved performance, search and handling of non ASCII characters.
  • New option: Backup original before tagging
  • New option: Optimize file after tagging
Rename TV Items.action
  • Now renames source folders or files using the tvdb API
  • Batch renaming tv show files made easy. Search tvdb for the show, enter season and episode number to start and it renames all the files: Show Name - S##E##.m4v
Add Movie Tags.action
  • Renames files or folders
  • Improved performance, search and handling of non ASCII characters.
  • New option: Backup original before tagging
  • New option: Optimize file after tagging
Batch Encode.action
  • Features tagging updates made in Add TV Tags.action
  • Fixed an issue where the min-time was being overridden by the GUI's preferences.
Thanks!

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 you've done. Now with everything in a single "copy-to-install" container, it's much more Mac-like and nicely self-contained.

I was just wondering if you'd be willing to permanently eliminate line 1726 (and related lines) in batchEncode.sh? This line changes the Terminal settings to "Pro," but I personally prefer to use "Homebrew." Every time I update, I forget that this line is there until my settings are changed automatically, at which time I jump into the code to remove the line (and put my settings back in Terminal).

I'm sure your time is limited and your talents better utilized by focusing on something that impacts the real functionality, but it would be great to not have to worry about changing Terminal settings, if you are willing to take a moment.

Thanks, and keep up the awesome work!

Now that the new recommended setting have come out from the HandBrake folks for ATV3, how do I change the scripting presets for 1080p?

Where are these recommended settings?? Searching doesn't seem to pinpoint any recommendations so far.

Nothing has been recommended as yet, as none of the developers have had an opportunity to look at the ATV3... a few suggestions have been made.

:?: I noticed that batch rip automator 1.09 requires Mac OSX 10.7 What is the major difference between 1.08 and 1.09? Additionally, is it possible to get a 1.09 version that will run on Mac OSX 10.6 :?:

Hi Mac Jedi -

Great work. Have been using your solution for ~6 months now. I have a strange phenomena creeping up. I have downloaded some .mkv files, and when I use the Batch Encode workflow, it seems to be creating ~6 different copies of the same encode. Just started happening a few days ago, and have tested with three different downloads. As an example: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/20224387/Screen ... 5%20PM.png

Any idea whey the script is creating 5-6 different copies of the same file? Should I just reinstall the automator scripts?

Thanks.

Hello, growl no longer consistently works since I upgraded to Mountain Lion. Batch Encode works but Batch Rip does not. Growl is enabled and I've installed the latest version of growl form the mac app store. Do you have any suggestions on where I can start to troubleshoot this problem? Thanks.

I'm having the exact same issue. It only seems to do it when the file is a mkv AND in the "TV Shows" folder. "Movies" work perfectly.

Mac Jedi,
I'm not sure if you're still following this thread or working on this little project anymore. But thanks for all your hard work in creating this. It's made my life so much more...entertaining :D

So tmdb shutdown API v2.1, are there any plans to get the batch rip actions updated to work with API v3?

I'm hoping this does get updated. I have been using this method for a while now and LOVE it!

ANNOUNCEMENT: BATCH RIP ACTIONS UPDATED

Update 2013-12-01

Release Notes
Batch Rip Actions for Automator 1.1.1

RECOMMENDED: Before upgrading, it is recommended that you uninstall and remove any previous versions.

IMPORTANT: This update includes new Service workflows. You will need to install the new workflows in order to complete the update.

1.1.1 build 280
  • Provides general fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and functionality of Batch Rip Actions for Automator
  • New Batch Encode Event Scheduler! Replaces the iCal event scheduler. Easily setup a daily schedule to automatically run Batch Encode at the time you set
  • Movie tagging has been updated to support The Movie Database APIv3!
  • New Help via the Help menu and Mac's Help Center
  • Sadly, Fairmount is no longer supported by the developers. A working binary is now included in the application bundle.
  • libdvdcss library is now mandatory, replaces the need for VLC. A download link is provided in the download menu.
  • Updated to support Mac OS X Notification Center. Growl is still supported, but may not support all new features.
  • Other things that I've already forgotten about
Batch Encode (Updated)
  • VLC is no longer supported by HandBrake for decryption, libdvdcss library is now manditory. Link provided in the download menu.
  • Added support to burn-in blu-ray PGS subtitles via HandBrakeCLI. BDSub2Sup has been deprecated in this version.
  • MKVtoolnix chapter, sub and audio extract/muxing has been deprecated in this version. HandBrake and MakeMKV have got it handled.
  • Encode 1 now includes a unique preset called MakeMKV that will create an MKV file from optical and folder sources using MakeMKV. The resulting MKV file will be used as the source for Encode Targets 2-4. Useful if you'd like an uncompressed MKV file that includes all audio and subtitle tracks.
  • Added Alternate Language option. Useful for those who desire more language options. Also used as a fallback when Native Language is not available.
  • Added! Default Audio Track Selection:
    • Default Audio: sets the default audio track to the source's "default" audio track. Useful for films where the main audio differs from your native language. Like if the main audio is Japanese and you want English subtitles.
    • Native Language: selects an audio track (if available) that matches the native language preference set in the workflow. If an audio track is not available in your native language, it will try to find one that matches the alternate language preference set in the workflow. If neither are available, it will fallback to the title's default audio track.
  • Added! Additional Audio Track Selection:
    Batch Encode will now include additional audio tracks if selected.
    • Native Language: Selects all audio tracks in your native language.
    • Alternate Language: Selects all audio tracks in your alternate language.
    • Native & Alternate: Selects all audio tracks in your native and alternate language.
    • All Tracks: Selects all audio tracks audio available regardless of language.
    • Mixdown: Will mixdown additional tracks to 2-channel DPL2 for a smaller file size. If disabled, any selected multi-channel tracks will be passed-through as AC3.
  • Added! Burn-in Subtitle Track Selection:
    The Burn-in option will burn-in subtitle tracks that match the language preference set in the action. Burned in subtitles are written on top of the image permanently.
    • None: Will not burn any subtitle track.
    • Auto Detect: Burns in forced-only subtitles (if available) in your native language for short foreign language segments. Additionally, if the default audio track language is different from your native language, will burn in subtitles in your native language (if available).
    • Forced Only (Native): Burns in forced-only subtitles (if available) in your native language.
    • Native Language: Burns in subtitles in your native language (if available) regardless of the default audio track language.
    Note: Only 1 subtitle track can be burned-in to the video. Additonal text-based subtitles can be passed-through. See the HandBrake wiki for more info.
  • Added! Pass-thru Subtitle Track Selection:
    The Pass-Thru option will pass-thru "text-based" subtitle tracks that match the language preference set in the action.
    • Native Language: Selects all audio tracks in your native language.
    • Alternate Language: Selects all audio tracks in your alternate language.
    • Native & Alternate: Selects all audio tracks in your native and alternate language.
    • All Tracks: Selects all audio tracks audio available regardless of language.
    Note: Due to mp4 file limititations and HandBrake capabilities, picture-based subtitles cannot be passed-through. They can however be burned-in, but only 1 track can be burned-in to the video. See the HandBrake wiki for more info.
  • Updated Encode targets and presets.
  • Updated to support Mac OS X Notification Center.
