    Why doesn't title auto-populate on the main screen?

    I feel like I have a setting turned off or something - or maybe I'm missing something obvious.

    I understand that META INFO is used as a means of Plex and other tools to understand the name/title of the content.

    However, I would expect that if I put a disc in and the disc has a meta info entry in the database that the TITLE on the main ripping screen would automatically populate instead of continuing to default to the CONVERSION->OUTPUT pattern setting.

    No?

    Despite the fact that Predator 2 has meta info in the database ... when I add the items to rip, I get the same generic Volume/Title Predator2.theatrical, etc.

    These titles, BTW, end up as the meta data in Plex - so I essentially have to turn off Plex's local meta data scrapping because I'm not going to hand enter the titles for 30 items I'm ripping; which doesn't seem out of line if the meta info is sitting there available.

    It doesn't make sense that meta info's selling point is to share this data, but then require the end user manually cut and paste, enter it themselves. So I have to assume I'm not using the feature correctly

    Thanks for any enlightenment.

    Thanks. I've been using MetaX for a while now. For some reason it likes to add a single chapter to my MKV files that are chapterless.

    I've been listening to you since about 1999 btw.

    P.S.
    Keep it retro.
    They are making some progress here .. but not a ton.

    I'm Shane R. Monroe .. and until next time ... Keep it retro ... love to hear from an old fan!

    Any word on this concept? I am trying to sell DVDFab to others - and they run into issues (as we all do) with ripping TV episode discs. There are tools that can HELP change:

    SIX.FEET.UNDER.D1.TITLE02 (as ripped by DVDFab)

    into

    Six Feet Under - S01E01 - Pilot Episode.mp4 (which is what I think we all want in the end; or something close)

    ... but those other apps have about a 50% hit/miss ratio with getting them right.

    I'd be more than happy to contribute more meta info related to TV discs if I felt the information was a lot more readily accessible for renaming purposes.

    Makes the product harder to sell

    If I understand you right, meta info is there merely to help you decide WHAT you want to rip - but then not help you label it properly?

    I'm sure I've seen posts regarding the intent of meta info to ensure your media delivery system has appropriate meta tags so it doesn't index them incorrectly.

    Why can't we just extend that data to the ripper titles directly? If Meta Info knows that Title203 is PREDATOR 2, EXTRAS, TRAILERS, PREDATOR ... why couldn't we simply have an option within the conversion output of:

    <volume> - <meta:category> - <meta: type> - <meta: title>

    to get

    Predator 2 - Extras - Trailer - Predator.mp4

    This seems like an easy win/
    We will consider your suggestion. Meanwhile you can contribute some meta info to help us build up the data and benefit all users too. Thanks in advance. meta collection.png
