I have decided to apply a licence requirement to all of my apps from now on.
This app will go through your movies one by one, detect those with a missing poster (folder.jpg), extract several shots from that movie, then combine them all into one nice montage. This is then saved with the correct filename in the movies dir then moves onto the next film.
It needs to be placed in the route of your movies.
Filetypes currently supported: .avi; .mkv; .mpg; .mpeg
Here’s an example of the sort of things it can produce:
Added Experimental MP4 support
To use this app, please click the donate button below and dontate at least £1.99. If you want to use more than one category of app, please donate £1.99 per category and PM me your licence codes along with the email address you used to donate :–)
Alternatively, donate £5 and have access to all apps
I tried the folder montage creator for the first time after successfully using some of the other scripts. It runs for a short time – 4-5 seconds and then simply stops without any message and, of course, no folder.jpgs are created.
I am running the script in a virtual machine (WinXP) which I use to manage all the metadata for my media collection and also as a security measure. There is no local installation of Media Centre. Does the script rely on an additional executable such as ffmpeg.exe or is it completely self contained?
