Needed: A Chapter Scoreboard

Post by markfilipak » Sun Aug 04, 2019 11:03 pm

Description of problem or question:

The "2001, A SPACE ODYSSEY" [1968] blu-ray has 35 chapters. I want to skip chapters 1, 21, and 22 (intro-music & intermission). There doesn't seem to be a way to do that. The current control appears to allow only a starting chapter & ending chapter, but the chapters in the middle can't be skipped.

Is there a way to scoreboard the desired chapters so that I can choose which to include and which to skip without limitation?

HandBrake version (e.g., 1.0.0):
1.2.2 (2019022300)

Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):
Win10-2803

Warm Regards,
Mark.

No, HB is not an editor.

I appologize that I didn't make myself clearly understood. I'm not asking for edit capability.

A scoreboard is not editing. It's merely skipping. It would require only a trivial change to HandBrake (if indeed it is a change... I don't know).

I don't have a patch and I don't know what a pull request is and I don't have github (account or application).

PS: Audio streams & subtitle streams are already scoreboarded, so some 'edit' capabilities are already there (though unrelated to Chapters). HandBrake already does transcoding by Chapter. I'm simply requesting that Chapters be scoreboarded as streams already are scoreboarded. I hope you understand that.

I guess it's not so trivial.

You can encode the chapter ranges you want each to MKV, then combine with MKVToolNix. Then later remux to MP4 if you wish.

Hey relax. mduell is a long time user here, maybe you thought he came across too direct? He's just trying to help.

By the way....
"It's people like you what cause unrest." is really bad grammar. F*ck those Monty Pythons hehe. I think "It's people like you that cause unrest." or "It's people like you which cause unrest." would have been much more appropriate.

Well as I suspected, you're not a native English speaker, that's OK of course. I'd love to know what "Ain't ya got no fetchin up?" means so I can join in the joke.

Hahahahahaha... "not a native English speaker"? But, but, I wear a grass skirt. Doesn't that make me a native?

Regarding "fetchin up", did you do a search for it?

My god, I feel like I'm about to enter the 'Twilight Zone'...
I don't know what 'grass skirt' means.
Nor, did I search for what 'fetchin up' means, why should I? I'm a human, I have things to do which is why I asked you.

And by the way, it's "God" to you.

This thread has clearly gone off track and frankly, I don't understand what y'al talking about so I'm going to lock it.
