MKV Chapterizer v2.4

May 6, 2012 2 comments

There’s been a lot of other stuff going on lately, but here it is finally!
It’s not a bible of changes, but it includes some nice new features as well as a few improvements. There are some things I already have planned for next version/future versions, for example merging chapter files.

One thing I am also gonna work on is the documentation, that hasn’t been needed until now! Since start, this program has gotten loads of features and the interface has evolved too so I realize now that I need to create some proper docs. The place for the documentation will be the wiki tab at the google code page, here. I’ll make sure that there are lots of screen-shots and minimal text so they are easy to read 😉

Big thanks to you guys who have donated so far, really appreciated 😀

Keep the chapterizer going and enjoy the new version!

Chapterizing gone wild with v2.1!

November 21, 2011 Leave a comment

Hi guys!

Finally the time has come for me to release version 2.1 of MKV Chapterizer! It contains a few, but big, new features that will enhance the program.
To start with I have finally added a complete auto-updating system which checks and downloads new updates automatically to the program, making it even easier to stay up to date! Though since the updates that are downloaded are installers, I have disabled the downloading feature in the portable version, it will only notify (as 2.0 did). Therefore I recommend choosing the installer 😉
As some of you maybe remember, I have been talking about a suprise lately, and here it goes: ChapterDB! It may not sound that fantastic but I’ll explain what it is.
ChapterDB is a database on the internet which holds sets of chapters that are pulled from real DVDs by the program Chapter Grabber. The database contains a lot (when I say a lot I mean thousands and thousands) of chapter-sets for a lot of movies. The database is managed by Jarret Vance, who is the creator of Chapter Grabber, and I have gotten permission to use it in MKV Chapterizer too!
So you just switch mode to ChapterDB, type in the name of the movie which you wants chapters for and then click search. You will then get a list of all available chapter-sets. Some less popular movies doesn’t have any chapters stored in ChapterDB so therefore you will not find anything when searching for them.

So what is the advantage of using chapters from ChapterDB vs Interval? Well you get chapters that are timed by a human, meaning that they are placed logically. If you are lucky (if the movie is quite popular) you will also find chapters with the “real” names (from the DVD/Bluray) which will make it look more proffesional 😉

There are of course other news in this version, though I won’t talk about them here. You can go to the MKVC page to see the full changelog.

At last I want to thank Jarret Vance (ChapterDB) and Moritz Bunkus (MkvMerge) for making this release and program a possibility. I also want to thank all the users of my program, version 2.o have gotten about 3000 downloads on 6 months which makes me happy since this is my first real project and I am learning things all the time!

So yeah, what are you waiting for, download and enjoy (the links are here as usually)! 😀

Oh and if you find any bugs/get any errors please create an issue here, so I can fix it in the next version! Questions may be asked in the comments as usually.

As I said in my last posts, there are more changes to the back-end than to the front-end. Stuff like queuing should work now (only tested with 2 movies in a row) as well seeing the progress of everything.
I am working as fast as I can on the time I have. Please drop a comment if there is any bug that you think I don’t know of 🙂

MKV Chapterizer 2.0 Beta

March 20, 2011 6 comments

It has taken more time than I planned, but I am getting closer to the final stage now. In this version I have fixed a lot since Alpha. This is a fully functional version for those who want to Chapterize single files only (or De-Chapterize or Re-Chapterize). But the queuing part still need some work until final 2.0. Actually I have come to a stage where I need to rewrite a part of the code to have everything working. As I am doing this on my spare time I can’t put an ETA on it, but it won’t take a month, nor one day. I will keep on releasing new betas every Sunday until final (hopefully just one more).

Anyway, here is the link to the download of the beta:

The bug that caused the MKVs to not play in some players should be fixed in this release, please report to me if it hasn’t.
