When I unchecked "Update or Add Metadata in video file" everything worked. The files were renamed and moved to the correct directory. What is this setting supposed to do and why doesn't it work? When I read the title about adding or updating metadata I thought that would be a good thing.
This option actually updates some of the information in the video file. For example the correct Titles.
This is indeed a good thing, since the proper info (Show, Episode title, Episode description, air date, etc.) are now also embedded in the file.
Downside is that each file needs to be opened, read, data modified, and written again.
This makes the process significantly slower of course, and adds a layer of potential issues (an external program, ffmpeg, is used for this).
I would not expect this to cause a "index out of bounds" error.
However, I do see you have the codec-detect option enabled - this may cause this, but I have to admit that I have not been able to reproduce the issue - which makes it hard to resolve the issue. I'm pretty sure you ran into some kind of but, and obviously I'd like to resolve this.
Is there a way to turn off the notification everytime I add files to be renamed?
Yes there is: Under Settings, first tab 😊
I forgot to tell what a great help this program has been for me
Thank you - that's so cool! I appreciate you sharing that.
it happened again
Could you try this:
1) Completely uninstall RMTV (How to) ...
Remove these directories
C:\Program Files (x86)\Rename My TV Series
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Rename My TV Series.
2) Download and Reinstall the beta (2.1.8) again (just to make sure)
Disable "CodecDetect" and "AutoDetect" (main window) - keep everything else (for now) default and try to rename.
3) Do some testing, possibly with test files.
You can do this with a few dummy files - for RMTV to work, files do not need to be actual video files, so we can use empty files, which you can create like so, in a DOS box. (Note: for meta-data and codecdetection, actual files are needed of course)
break > test1.mkv
This will create the file "test1mkv", which will be an empty file (0 bytes).
Create a few and drag them onto RMTV and see what happens. Rename should work.
So you could create a few at once by copying and pasting this into terminal,
break > title_t00.mkv
break > title_t01.mkv
break > title_t02.mkv
break > title_t03.mkv
break > title_t04.mkv
break > title_t05.mkv
break > title_t06.mkv
break > title_t07.mkv
break > title_t08.mkv
break > title_t09.mkv
After pasting this in Terminal, press ENTER - you should now have a directory called "testfiles" with a couple test files in it.
