[RESOLVED] Indexing Demuxed video

Post by gonca » Wed Oct 23, 2019 6:21 pm

Question
When I choose Demux Video, is there a way I can have this stream indexed instead of the original file without doing the indexing twice?

That could be difficult to implement but I suppose not impossible. So may I ask you to please describe the use case in some detail? Thank you.

Use case
Rip disc to folder (save on HDD for archive purposes)
Would demux video, audio and subtitles to local ssd
If demuxed video is indexed then I can shut down external drive and work from internal drive, so archive drive stays safe.

Would changing the path from the video file to the demuxed file, in the dgi, work?

No sir, all the offsets in the DGI file are relative to the indexed stream.

I understand your use case but can't see a way to implement what you ask for in a way that would actually save you any time.

I can always just demux and index, then delete the index file and then index the demuxed video
Thanks for looking at it

Sounds good, gonca. If you have any ideas to accomplish this automatically, without becoming too specialized for any given use case, please let us know.

Would a option to just demux, no indexing, be of any value?
If the functions run concurrently, and I am writing to a SSD, I have a feeling that no time will be saved

The actual indexing is a very small part of things. The disk operations are the killer (reading the source file and writing the demux files). You could place your input stream on one disk and then save project to a different disk to get some speedup. I don't see what I can do in DGIndexNV to help you with your use case.
