I checked the crypto function I'm using in SOT.  It is using the PC's unique UUID for both the encryption and decryption of the password and username so it has to be on the same PC (and hence why I had to redo it as I'd just done a clean install of Windows).  It also means I can not decrypt (or create) others' password and username.

Is there anything special (or that changed) on the PC you are running SOT on?

No. JRiver is running on a Windows Server 2016 (64bit). New install on Saturday, restored the JR Database and setup Swag new (new .ini)

Do you have SOT in a folder with write permissions? Don't put it in Program Files.

No it's not. The folder is free with full read, write. I also put Swag on a drive other than "C". Because on a server (C) has read/write only for Administrators and the System itself, a long as you change it.

Then maybe SOT is assuming it's always on C: ?
Try running it from the desktop just to test... and check the .ini timestamp to see if it's being modified when you save the pass.

....also:
- SOT should not care what drive letter is used. 
- It used to work till the new build on the weekend?  (if so something has changed)
- Are you running SOT over RDP or something like that (I'm wondering if the crypto hash using the UUID somehow changes or is just handled differently on WS2016)

Worse come to worse I can always make a clear text option in the setup (but that will leave your username/password exposed in the INI file if you care).

Are you running the EXE directly or via a shortcut? SOT seems to assume the .ini is in the "current folder", which can be changed in a shortcut ("start in...")

I did this, yes it's writing, belive me.

If you can make a clear ini is ok for me.

Thanks, it's working and what I see is that after my password is a whitespace. Maybe this could be the problem?

Checked on my setup and I don't get any whitespace .... so no idea what is causing the issue on your setup, except something does not like the hashing function (and SOT has been hashing for some time now and this is the first such issue).

Also, Hendrik has added into core MC the collection of all the core additional meta data.  So.... SOT --> Media Info scraping will (I expect) get less use these days

Hendrik has done a ton of work integrating additional media data scraping and black bar detection to MC.  For those using "SOT - Media Info" the following are two area that are automatically done when you run it:
- Update the "Compression" Tag with "+Atmos" or "+DTS:X" if the file contains it
- Update the "Languages" Tag with any of the languages if the file contains it that information

1) Given the changes to MC, I'm inclined to remove these two items but what do you think?
2) What about Black Bar detection?  MC's new method is far more thorough and the sytax used is different to SOT, should we deprecate this, leave it or modify it in some way
3) Are there also other things that need to be added / removed / changed?

At the moment I'm missing the:
"Bit Rate (Max)" ... kb/s  for example, if the movie has VBR.
"Bit Rate" (... kb/s  for example)
"BPS" (25,00 for example)
"Audioformat Name" for example "Dolby Digital Plus 5.1" (the name (Title) of the Audio track.

Hello jmone,
I haven't yet made the switch to MC30 as I'm perfectly fine with my current workflow of importing movies, could you perhaps make changes in SOT dependent of what version SOT is seeing?
There also might be more users of SOT who hasn't made the switch to MC30.

Hade a great weekend!

There is no rush, just putting it out there on what changes may make sense.  Also, you could also just keep using the current version of SOT even if I make changes.

from a PM :

Hi Jmone

I am using your Data Fiddler to import Music Playlists into JRiver.  Its working great, except when I look at the playlist in JRiver it does not show the first song.  Meaning if I do a test and the playlist in the spreadsheet and Fiddler contains 3 songs, JRiver only shows the last 2 in the playlist

Have you come across this issue? Any guidance and instructions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

All the best

With bdmv files I can no longer get the mediainfo data. The relative file contains what you see in the attachment.

Was there any change that I don't know about?

Yup!  MC changed the FileName extension in the database from "index.bluray;1" to "index.bdmv" so I'll need to update SOT to handle this.

OK - here is a test version that should work for "normal" BD's - let me know of any issues.

Note: I've not ripped any of the following for ages, but I'm also worried if there has also been a change for the FileName extension used for:
- 3D Bluray : was "bluray3d;1"
- DVD : was "dvd;1"

However, the "Audio Title" field of the bdmvs continues to remain empty: shouldn't it be populated by SoT? Or am I saying nonsense? :-[

Good to hear!  I really need to look at the DVD and 3D-BD as well....

While you could map something from SOT/Media Info into this field, it was introduced by Hendrik recently as a part of MC's expanded meta data scraping.  Mine are mostly empty, eg ";;;;;;"

Hi Jmone, great set of tools, I was trying to get mediainfo.
The Mediainfo installed fine, but next it starts asking for FFmpeg to be installed, it downloads, but does not seem to install. So when I want to start mediainfo it keeps installing ffmpeg, but it's not installed.It makes a directory, I manually put in ffmpeg, but that does not work. Am I doing something wrong, and if I can install it  manually, where need the files go..

Thanks in advance.

Hi DigiBert,

Looks like the 2021-05-31-13-09 build SOT uses has been removed from GITHUB.  I will need to update (and test) SOT with a newer build.

FWIW, SOT is checking if "ffmpeg.exe" exists in a folder under the SOT installed called "\ffmpeg\ffmpeg-N-102631-gbaf5cc5b7a-win64-gpl-shared\bin\ffmpeg.exe", if it does not find it there it will:
1) downloading : https://github.com/BtbN/FFmpeg-Builds/releases/download/autobuild-2021-05-31-13-09/ffmpeg-N-102631-gbaf5cc5b7a-win64-gpl-shared.zip
2) unzipping it to "\ffmpeg\ffmpeg-N-102631-gbaf5cc5b7a-win64-gpl-shared"

So for now, you should be able to manually extract FFMPEG to that "...\ffmpeg\ffmpeg-N-102631-gbaf5cc5b7a-win64-gpl-shared" folder, just make sure "ffmpeg.exe" is found in ""...ffmpeg\ffmpeg-N-102631-gbaf5cc5b7a-win64-gpl-shared\bin\" .

I'll make a fix for SOT this week.

Thanks
Nathan

Thanks for the quick reply, that worked.
Is it possible to update the field in MC on ISO files.
When playing an iso it mounts the ISO and at that moment you should be able to get the Audio and Video data to copy it to MC.
Manually those fields are locked.
What I want to achieve is select an ISO play it close the display and run your tool to get the data from the mounted ISO in the selected library entry.

The more time consuming version would be download the library selection, manually enter the data an upload.

The fastest process would be to have both MC and SOT-Chapterfy open in two windows then use either of the following:

Chapterfy - Manually Create
- Select the item in MC
- Use Chapterfy (Manual) where you will first need to put in the # of chapters, then cut and paste the data from XL into the following notepad windows in this format (you could preformat this in excel)
Code: [Select]
CHAPTER01=00:01:00.000
CHAPTER01NAME=Chapter 01
CHAPTER02=00:02:00.000
CHAPTER02NAME=Chapter 02
CHAPTER03=00:03:00.000
CHAPTER03NAME=Chapter 03

Chapterfy - chapter.txt File
- Create individual Chapter.Txt files for each MC item from XL (same format as above)
- Select the item in MC
- Use Chapterfy (chapter.txt File) --> Create Chapters --> Select the correct Chapter.txt file

Thank you very much for this clear explanation and, more generally, for this set of tools. After a little investment of time this evening in learning more about manipulating Excel columns, I can see now how this can be a relatively easy process.
 
As a newcomer to this set of tools, I look forward to exploring more what they offer. One further question. I have seen reference to issues that arise when moving files with particles.  Does  the Filename Updater help address these issues?

Great to hear!  I don't think I've really come across a file moving issue but it's not something I've needed to do for years anyway as I use a share so they are all in the format of "\\MEDIA\Video\...." instead of say D:\Video

Looks like the days of needing to use SOT is coming to an end.  With the addition of additional meta collection for Videos and the "Auto Create Chapter Particles" most of what SOT could do is now part of MC.

Thank you Jmone for the all the excellent work with SoT.
I still use it for extracting media info and are very pleased with its consistency.

I have a copy of SoT saved away on my hard drive, in case I need it in the future.
