I see that dvdauthor is the solution of many of the problems people have when trying to change DVDs' content. http://www.mydvdedit.com/viewtopic.php?p=923&pg=forum#923

Maybe you can integrate dvdauthor so that you need not concentrate on Problems like:

  1. Merging VOBs
  2. Merging Cells
  3. Splitting Cells
  4. Adding free Chapters

It's not really my policy to integrate existing tool in myDVDEdit.
For many reasons.

- I become dependent of the tool version and it platform limitations (MAC OS version, PPC or Intel)
- When Apple propose a new Mac OS version, what do I do if this tool is not compatible with it. It's the problem Christophe had with Moviegate.
- I didn't write myDVDEdit to win money, I make it for the pleasure to do something I never done before. reuse the works of others is not really funny.
- I think I can do it.
- I LOVE reinvent the wheel.

OK, it's not a good news for you, the development will be slower. That's the price to get something for free Smile.

I won't argue with you. I can well understand most (if not all) of your concerns and reinventing the wheel is something I do like too Wink

So how about giving us a general Plug In option? Or Scripting capabilities?

I'd love to make one or the other extension which then will use dvdauthor.

What I will try to do today (tonight) is to program an applescripts which will use dvdauthor to add chapters to VOBs.

I think this could be very helpful as long as myDVDEdit doesn't have this feature.

Okay…

Here I am admitting that it isn't that easy.

At least it won't become a drag&drop solution so soon, but I will provide some tutorials in my blog as soon as I made them up.

Stay tuned.

And hopefully Jérôme will give us a better solution in 1.1 Wink
