manually fill in Chapters of DVD´s
« on: January 23, 2009, 05:57:24 pm »
I have some dvd´s added to MCE. It is a dvd with music clips. The chapters are numbered from Chapter 1 to 89. Is it possible to manually change the name of the chapters. Example name in stead of Chapter 1. It is not on official DVD that can be in any database.

Chapters are just an attribute, like all other attributes. Looking at the database, the name of the attribute should be something like:

ChapterName[H:mm]

like:

Intro[0:28]
MainChapter[5:02]
Ending[92:04]
Credits[98.00]

To try it, go to MediaFilesSync in the web admin, and browse to the media file. Then either edit the attributes that are already there, or add new chapter attributes and fill them in.

This is just going off of what I see in the database though, so I don't know if the timecode is truely parsed or not. I've never tried this, but its wirth giving it a try!
