Quick Stream Fix for many files?

Hello!

I have here some TB of ts-files which causes massive problems if I adding it to TVSuite. Maybe Quick Stream fixcould help, but adding all these files to QSF would take ages.

Is a feature possible/planned to simply add lots of files at once?

I remember to cut/convert some of these files with PVAStrumento and MPEG-Streamclip, it was before purchased Videoredo on August 2010.

Tools>"Start Batch Manager"
Drop your load of files into the "Output File" window.

New "Add files to batch queue" windows opens

Select the "Quick stream fix" checkbox.

Thanks it works.

Some files seem to be really problematic, it needs minutes to see the files in the folders. Some files let Videoredo also crash, but at least the most files work

Batch can be iffy. I may process 100 files and 20 fail.
Select the 20 and tell it to reprocess them...12 fail, then only 5 fail etc.

If any of the failed files stop succeeding I process them in the VRD interface one by one. Usually works.

This is strange. I wonder if there is just some timing issue. Have you ever sent us a log when this happens so we can see where it failed?

Just out of curiosity do you have the option set to only allow one copy of VideoReDo to run at a time?

VRD is set to allow several copies to run at the same time.

Have never sent a log about the fail/success Batch processing.
Next time this happens I'll clear the log, retest and send you the results.

Yeah, a doz. files, one or two fail.
Rerun them back through once or twice and they usually make it out ok.

A lot of this is fairly quick. Like AAC audio in x264.TS captures and changing over to MP4/AC3s.


---------------------------------
Now a failure in the VRD interface processing...succeeding on a 2 or 3rd try would be lucky.
Hmm, when I'm doing this there is probably NOT a second VRD running.
With Batch there probably IS a second VRD running.

Thanks,

Yeah please do. While it's not a big deal to you it's still something I'd prefer to fix if I can figure out what's causing it.

One more question... are you actively using the PC while this is running? One issue I'm aware of, and haven't been able to fix, is that for a brief second when a new file starts the hidden version of VRD can grab keyboard focus and the default button is "Abort". So if you happen to be typing when that happens and hit enter it can accidentally trigger the Abort button. This is a side effect of the MFC framework we use for VRD and I can't figure out how to make it not take focus.

Normally the batch processing works fine for me.

But with the problematic files I´ve mentioned I also have sometimes an automatic of the batch manager. If I start batch manager again I see the non processed files and know the 1st one make problems, so I delete it and go on.


The bad thing, at least with V4.21, is I don´t see the windows which shows whether the already processed files are without errors or not.

Ok, I'll watch for that "Abort button" problem. That could well be an occasional problem.
If the Batch processing is going to be slow then I'll minimize it and work on.
Sometimes I have run into files that are way too short or even missing.
