DGDemux development

Post by Rocky » Mon Nov 04, 2019 11:55 am

DGDemux (Bluray/UHD demuxer supporting seamless branching) is coming along nicely. It was actually quite hard to disable all the licensing. If it was easy it would be easy for the crackers. ;)

Looking at a test release this week if all goes well.

Made good progress today! I have a beta ready except for the manual. So tomorrow looks real good. Or maybe I'll write the manual after swimming tonight and get it out today. :scratch:

Whee!

Thank you for the post Dion. Always great to hear from you.

eac3to still does what it does (including stuff that DGDemux cannot do). People say it works fine for many use cases but has not been fully evolved for other cases, such as seamless branching. Developers have to be allowed to set their priorities. Flak for not adding MKV support to DGIndex? DGindex is not on the radar. madshi continues to do great things for the community. He will always be a hero for Rocky and Bullwinkle. Standing on the shoulders of giants!

Hehe, it was harder than expected to suppress the creation of the DGI file. Opened "nul" instead of the normal DGI path and everything transparently follows. Squirrely-wuirrely, wouldn't you say?

So it's only for mpls files... I thought DGDemux will support regular demuxing, as DGIndexNV does :scratch:

The goal was two-fold: 1) Help people with their seamless branching disks, and 2) lure some new people into the DG world. Nevertheless it could be extended to general demuxing without undermining demand for DGDecNV and I will consider that.

Ya MKV support would be a huge plus too imo.

On a side note.. Will this be command line only? or is there a gui planned as well?

I could just remove the test for *.mpls. Everything else would then magically work, as in DGIndexNV. ;)

When I complete the CLI functionality (info option and selective demux option), anyone can write a DGDemuxGUI. Personally, I already have DGIndexNV. :lol:
