I pointed this to my music video folder, which contains nicely formatted folder names and pretty dumb internet-scene type names in the individual folders. After configuring the settings I hit generate and it's been "working.." for awhile. I've only got around 50 music videos, and it's been running for at least an hour or so.
Should I do anything else, or let it do it's thing?

Sorry. Forgot to mention that it currently is only supported files in the same folder with the name: Artist - Title.
Can you give me your folder tree? Then I try to get immplementert support for it in the next version.
Will try to separate the GUI in a separate thread for the next version so you can see prossesen

this outputs to the same folder your scraping i assume since there isn't a setting to assign an output folder?
i ask cause ive left it running for maybe 20 mins or so thus far and it doesn't seem to be doing anything.
win xp 32 SP 3
files are all in the same folder and formatted as follows.
Trapt - Headstrong.mp4

My mistake again. The first time I publish a program. I forgot to add the settings for the file extension, MP4 is not hardcoded in. It only support avi and mpg at the moment, heck that i forgot that. Wil fix it in the next version. I will try to get the new version out next week.

My folder structure looks like:
\Music Videos\Artist - Title\whatever.ext
- lilfire - 2011-09-08 22:32
Okey. I wil immplementert support for it in the next version.

So this time it worked, but it only worked for two music videos out of the bunch. What kind of info do you need from me to troubleshoot?
- lilfire - 2011-09-14 08:54
If you can give me the exact folder name, and name of the files in the folder, for 5 videos that it didn't work for.
