If you can define a custom Output Profile that accomplishes this then VAP can do it (by selecting that profile when processing the video). If you pursue this please start a new thread here for further discussion.Is there a way for VAP to also change the aspect ratio of the final output?
I use a S2 TiVo to record from an HD cable box. So the video is squeezed to 4:3. Is there any way for VAP to allow the final output to be 16:9? I have used the Video Redo GUI successfully to do this on individual files, so I know the results would be fine.
Next, to help you I need some info as described in this thread:Modifications if above instructions don't work when using user-defined Output Profiles:
Follow the instructions above except:
In the General tab of the scheduler configuration:
1. Check Run only when user is logged on (instead of Run whether user is logged on or not)
2. In the "Configure for" pull down, select Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2 (not "Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008")
Of course this configuration requires the user account for which the scheduler item was set up be logged in at trigger time. Also, at startup the VAP UI will pop up for a few seconds and then minimize itself. A possible advantage is that VAP can be maximized (when you are viewing the account it is running in) and you can assess activity and even stop it if desired. Also note that you can have more than one user account logged on at a time.
I don't know exactly what that means but it suggests there may be COM issues if you have more than one version of VRD installed. I have had no problems as long as I run a new version of VRD one-time using "Run as administrator". If you have questions about this particular issue, please post in the VRD forum so one of their staff can address it. I see you're using TVS 4 so I don't know if this issue even applies to that VRD version.TVSuite V5 - 126.96.36.1990 (Released 2014-12-21)
[Change] COM: Disabled automatic COM registration. COM will only register at install, from batch, or if "/register" on command line.
VAP may be able to lookup metadata on TVDB. If it finds metadata, it can embed it into your output DVRMS or WTV files. This would apply only to TV Series files, not movies.I'm considering batch converting about 100 mkvs into DVRMS format for ease of use with my Windows Media Center Extenders. I already have vap installed and working great for TV series, and It seems to do well with movies. My issue is I'm not sure about metadata lookup. Every file VAP has processed so far has been a .wtv file with embeded metadata. If I convert my MKVs to DVRMS files will VAP be able to lookup metadata and embed it in a file where none existed before? I only see references to TVDB in the documentation so I'm not sure how that effects things. Thanks.
