Announcement: Batch Rip Actions for Automator updated
Just thought some of you might like to know that I've updated the Automating DVD and Blu-Ray (Backup, Encoding and Tagging) tutorial which shows you how to automate DVD and BD encoding through Automator actions and Services. Enjoy!
ANNOUNCEMENT: BATCH RIP ACTIONS UPDATED
Batch Rip Actions for Automator 1.0.9
NOTE: The tutorial has been updated as well for v1.0.9. Additional help is available via the Help menu in the app.
1.0.9 build 257
Note: Sadly, but with no remorse, Snow Leopard is no longer supported in v1.0.9. There's very little reason not to upgrade to Lion at this point, so I'm just gonna focus on Lion.

Rename TV Items.action

firstly thanks for creating such a great toolkit! The new UI is really slick too.
I stumbled across this >6mths ago & felt it really hit the nail on the head. I've made some changes, as I found my MBP too slow to rip my DVD collection, so i built a PC with 4 DVD drives. I ripped discs to VOB's stored on a large NAS, and using some highperformance computing infrastructure, ripped them to m4v using a handbrake + SGE script that I wrote.
Now I have ~800 m4v files which need tagging...
Would you be able to point me in the direction of making 2 changes, or perhaps be interested in implementing these?
First, my files are named with a slightly different pattern to yours, most often due to a different hyphenation style in movie sequels, eg "X-Men The Last Stand (2006).m4v" (your style) vs "X-Men - The Last Stand (2006).m4v" (my style). These movie names are ever so close that it seems like a minor update to allow the 'add movie tags (filename)' action to find these matches
Second, can an option be added to the 'add movie tags (filename)' service to not stop on error. It would be great to select all movies, hit 'tag' then for the moviesthat couldn't be found, run the 'add movies tags (search)' service later.
sh is not my strongest programming language, so i'll make a start, but look forward to you pointing me in the right direction?

mkvinfo output parse bug
Hi, I think the mkvinfo output has changed recently, and now batchEncode.sh has trouble finding the correct track IDs to encode.
On one of my files mkvinfo is outputting additional info after the track ID:
| + Track number: 1 (track ID for mkvmerge & mkvextract: 0)
In getTrackListWithinDuration, when sourceType is file, it no longer returns just the "1", but the rest of the output within the parentheses, which generates a lot of garbage downstream.
I fixed it by adding an additional sed command to remove everything beginning with the open paren:
sed -e 's|^Track number: ||' -e 's|,.*||' -e 's|(.*||'
Not sure how common this is, but I wanted to share this change with you.

Output creates additional tracks
@mdisibio - I too am having this problem with additional output files for the tracks within the paren's (track ID for mkvmerge & mkvextract: 0) on all MKV files (both TV Shows and Movie files).
How do I add the additional sed command that you've provided in your post? I've opened the batchEncode.sh and located the "getTrackListWithinDuration" line item, but unsure where and how to add this comment.
Any guidance is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
