This is a simple set of tools used for a variety of purposes for use with Video Files.

Here are the tools developed to date:

  • VideoUpdater - A simple tool used to convert EDL files into Chapters and embed the Chapters (EDL) and Subtitles (SRT) files into MP4, M4V or MKV files. The tool works recursively on directories and has drag and drop options for manual processing. Just make sure the EDL and SRT files are along with the source video files and tool will do the rest.
  • SubtitleExtractor - A simple tool used to extract subtitles (including multiple subtitle tracks) from video files (MKV, MP4, M4V etc) into SRT formatted subtitle files. The tool works recursively on directories and has drag and drop options for manual processing. This tool also has a command line version for batch scripting.
  • EDL2Chapter - A simple GUI tool used to validate and convert EDL files into XML and TTXT chapter files. This can be useful when you want to used the output of Comskip or Showanalyzer to embed the commercial chapters instead of removing them. The XML and TTXT files are compliant with MKVMerge, MP4Box and other tools chapter specifications. The tool works recursively on directories and has drag and drop options for manual processing. This tool also has a command line version for batch scripting.
  • SRTValidate - A simple command line tool used to validate and correct (if possible) SRT files. Some tools such as MKVMerge are very finicky about the SRT format. Sometimes tools like CCExtractor create non compliant SRT files which can corrected with this tool. The tool works recursively on directories and has drag and drop options for manual processing. This tool also has a command line version for batch scripting.
