  • DVDFab v11.0.4.7/8 (Win) NFO file created by Video Converter

    It appears that the latest version of Video Converter creates an NFO file when I convert an MKV movie to MP4.

    What is the purpose of the NFO files? I just deleted them because they were text files with a bunch of HTML code.

    These files contain metadata used by many players to display a poster for the movie, along with plot descriptions and other information (like episode titles for TV shows). You can find out more about it here: https://forum.dvdfab.cn/forum/dvdfab...879#post371879

      Is there a way to turn the NFO files off if we manage metadata in another way?

        Search movie/tv dialog is being shown for each converted file even it is checked not to show again

          Is there a way to batch create the nfo files for movies that have already been converted? For example i have several hundred movies i have already ripped to mkv h265 format that i would prefer not to re-rip just to have a standardized metadata file. Is there a utility to just create the nfo file from an existing mkv based on the file name?

            We will take this as a feature request and put it to our to-do list. Thanks for the feedback.
