Time flies, doesn’t it?

HEY! :D

To begin with: Thank you Ashley for the donation and for leading me back here! :)
And no, I haven’t forgotten ya all!
I have been gone for some time (at least from this site and my projects here) because I have worked on other stuff. I can’t remember why I never told you, but anyway, here I am. You’re probably wondering where the hell I’ve been, abandoning my users like this with problems and so on. All I can say is that I am terribly sorry for that. I’ve been coding on a website for the past 10 months, going from zero to hero (hehe maybe not) in web development. Which means that I have collected a bag full of experience to put back into my programs here, especially MKV Chapterizer.

MKV has really gotten popular now, from being that small container with a weird Russian name to being the number one format for storing 1080p/720p material. I myself use it for everything and haven’t yet found a better container.

I read all the new comments since the last time I was here, and thought that I would spend some time answering some of them while I’m already on it:

Ton:

Hi, just the tool i am looking for but… and i really did my best to find it…how do i use an external xml chapter file, I don’t seeany option to add one. Using an xml file with the same name as the mkv doesn’t work. Thnx in advance, Ton

Hi Ton! You simply drop an MKV on it, then change to the “Chapter file” mode by clicking the blue arrows. There you can specify the xml file to use. Sorry if it is unclear!

Flubber:

Cannot change mode from “Interval”. Where/how do I use an external chapter file to add chapters? Is there some setting required to enable this? How do I use Chapter DB? Is there some other dependency required? Whilst the “Interval” mode works, it is not very interesting and the other modes that are interesting either seem to not work or there is no documentation on how to make them work.

Same as above, drop an MKV file then change mode by clicking the blue arrows :)

Nonya:

Love this tool! I would love it if way you added some kind of que based xml download support from chaptersDB. So say I have Title 1.mkv if I use chaptersdb and I download Title 1.xml I add them into the que and am able to do a LARGE number of conversions. I could not get this to work at all.The only only way I seem to be able to use the chaptersdb action is on a single file drop in simple mode where you lose the que functon. The main reason I mention this is I have almost 400 mkv’s from my entire DVD/Bluray collection and I didn’t realize the need for chapters until I got about 300 movies into the process. Maybe make it where you have an advanced mode add all the files and then have a button to check chapters db for the titles in the que and have it grab them all and allow for a batch processing.

Another couple of suggestions -
1)When you drag a named file the file name should be automatically imported into the ChapterDB search field. This would make it so much easier using it with ChapterDB. I dislike having to retype the same file name into the field to get the chapters.
2) Make this program support multiple drives. E.G. If I chapterize an mkv on my C drive it chapterizes in the proper amount of time. if I chapterize a file on my D drive I have the chapterization but then I have the long file copy wait. This is because the files your temping to are on the C drive. You should make it so the temped file is on the same local drive as the mkv.

About the batch processing with chapterDB – fully doable. I have thought about it, and I will see how to best implement it when I start working on the program again. The reason I didn’t program it to work for batch from the beginning is because the choosing of chapterdb entry. If I would make it batchable, I would either need to prompt the user for each file too choose a chapterDB entry (better, but still not pure “batch” I would say) or I would need to add some kind of automatic choosing based on filters. For example it should have x amount of chapters at least and so on. Not too hard, but it will take some time to perfect. But I would love to implement it so expect it! Challenges are there to be broken! ;)
The automatic name import was something I was going to implement, can’t remember why I never did. Will do it.
I’ll look into saving the TEMP on the same drive!

daril leonardo:

i had a problem with it, it was working well till i notice that two of my movies are mixed between them since i applied mkv chapterizer, any idea?

Sorry I have no idea, maybe you mixed up the naming when you chapterized them? If you can replicate it, I will gladly fix it.

Also, Don and Mike Mike, the error you got was because of some changes to my web-server. I have fixed it now and it should work again. Please tell me if it doesn’t. But as you both said, it doesn’t affect the rest of the program. If it still appears, go to settings and disable automatic updating.

Now you’re also probably wondering when I will keep my promises and fix things up. All I can say for now is that I will have time this summer. No school and so on. Maybe before that, but probably not.What I will do before, is migrate to a new website though. It shouldn’t take long time. I haven’t decided yet if I should host it somewhere else or just a new wordpress.com blog. I need somewhere to collect all my projects and work, including the websites I create.

That’s it for now, any questions can be taken in the comments, I have fixed so I get an email whenever people write so expect an answer within 24 hours! :D

    I hardly write comments, however i did a few searching and wound up
    here Time flies, doesnt it? | Cyb3rH4Xter’s Developer Blog. And I actually do have some questions for you if it’s
    allright. Could it be just me or does it look like a few of these remarks look like they are coming
    from brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online social
    sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your communal pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    all the time i used to read smaller content that also clear their
    motive, and that is also happening with this piece of writing which I am
    reading at this time.

    This design is spectacular! You certainly know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog
    (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job. I really loved what you had to say,
    and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with
    someone!
